Update from Lincoln, formerly Rita's Jumper

Lincoln, (formerly Rita's Jumper), has assimilated beautifully into our lives. He has joined us as well as Shanie, our 7-yr.old Golden mix, whom we also rescued from your organization. He has been to our vet as well as our trainer, Janine, owner of J9's K9's and we will begin an obedience class in March. He has great manners but we still want to teach him basic obedience. He and Shanie get along beautifully and he became a permanent member of our family on day one.

We tell everyone we introduce him to that he is a rescue from Taiwan and he truly is a beautiful soul. It is our pleasure to give him his forever home filled with love and attention which he so richly deserves. We are so grateful to have him with us now. We will send you pics as soon as we can get someone to take one of all of us together and we will keep you updated. Thank you to you, Rita, Gary (his foster dad) and everyone at Golden Rescue for giving us our sweet Lincoln. We will take care of him forever.

Rita's Jumper adopted!

Congratulations to Rita's Jumper, who found his forever home with Emilie and Dan, and their pup Shanie.

Jumper came to us a few months back from Taiwan, where he was found in a shelter very underweight, suffering from heartworm, ehrlichia and babesia. Thanks to the care and love of Rita and MJ he was able to recover and make his way to the US. He stayed with Gary and Dao, who adopted Rita's Marvin last year. Marvin taught Jumper most of what he needed to know for live in the US, and so he was ready to go when Emilie and Dan came along. They were so excited when we told them Jumper was a match, and eagerly made arrangement to drive down to the OC to meet him. Introductions between Jumper and Shanie went very well, and of course Emilie and Dan were smitten, and off Jumper went to his new home. He has quickly settled in and enjoys playing with his new doggy sibling and overall making himself at home, and his new name is Lincoln.

Jumper thanks Rita and MJ for all the love and care they provided to get him well and for sending him to us. He thanks the Welcome Waggin' for meeting him at LAX and Gary and Dao for taking him home and fostering him. He's also thankful to Deanna for doing the home visit for his new parents, and to the placement team and PA Eva for findhing him the perfect family.

Welcome home Jumper!
