Rescue me!

Every year in December, Mum and I put together our annual Rescue Me video. The video showcases many of the pups we feature throughout the year on our Rescue Me blog, and encourages people to adopt from a shelter or rescue if they are considering adding to their family. It also encourages people to help out their local shelter or rescue during the holidays with needed supplies, services, time and money, and to do what they can for the pups in need.

Earlier this year we were very happy to to receive an email from the new Mom of one of the first pups we featured, Ernie. In the beginning life of our blog, Ernie (who used to be named Bosco) became our blog mascot.

In the email, Ernie's Mum told us that she saw last year's Rescue Me video on YouTube and recognized her new 'best friend.' She found my email address and sent off a note to us right away, letting us know she had adopted him in October of 2007, and how grateful she is for having him in her life. She adopted him from the same shelter that rescued me, the Southside Animal Shelter in Indianapolis.

So this year, we dedicate our video to Ernie, who is now affectionately named Ernie Bosco (since his Mum found out his original name at the shelter). Thank you Ernie B. for lending your name, face and life to helping other pups find their forever home, just like you and I did.


  1. Thanks Johann, for such a beautiful video, and your efforts to help all the needy pups find their forever homes. I've been following your blog for awhile, and now I'm looking forward to following your Rescue Me blog too! If I may, I'd like to make a request that you add the French Bulldog Rescue Network to your list. They are doing some great work taking care of a lot of Frenchies across the country, helping them get healthy and find forever homes.


  2. That is really lovely
    It must be so nice getting good feedback like that for the good work you are doing.
    I have just started trying to do my bit for homeless dogs. I had no idea what a problem there was in Ireland till my agility club made ma aware


Thanks for barking in!
