when i went in and rescued this wonderful creature she was recovering from a hit-and-run car accident. she had no one and no home as winter just began. now she’s nice and plump and has her pick of any food, bed, blanket, treat she wants and she has my heart.
i used to think i saved her, but she saved me.
Note from A Place To Love Dogs:
This submitted photo and description is so touching. I almost teared up when I read it. It sums up what so many people feel when they have rescued a dog. The sweetness and depth of feelings that we read in the submitted photos and descriptions we receive from all of you is just wonderful. We are so lucky to be in this position where we can receive and share so much love. We named it A Place To Love Dogs, but you all made it come true.

This is Tex, my mothers little miniature pincher-chihuahua mix.
After a long illness her last companion Thor, a German  Shepherd, past away and left a huge hole in my mothers heart. He  past away on a Friday, and for weeks she would call me every Friday in  tears. I looked long and hard for a small manageable pet for my mother,  without the internet it was hard for her, so I did all the leg work, it  was a few months before we found Tex.
I just wanted my mothers heart to heal and for her to love again and feel like she had a purpose.
We met him first at a rescue in NJ, and just knew he was perfect for her. When they met, my mother cried, and felt an instant bond to him, and he to her.
Tex’s life before the shelter was unknown, he had lots of trust issues,  but soon became my mothers savior, best friend and baby.
This past spring I picked my mother up to take her to  the dentist. When she got into my car she told  me the story of how Tex bit her hand when she awoke in the morning trying to get her dentures back from him. When she reached for them he awoke startled and bit her pretty good.
He had a history of nipping once and a while, and like I said he had  trust issues.
I was seriously concerned about her hand and told her she needed  to get it checked out. She insisted it was fine and that Tex had his shots and she was  allergic to the tetanus vaccine. Later that evening I spoke with her  about the wound, and told her that a co-worker friend urged me to tell  her that even if Tex had his shots, she could still get an infection. An hour later she called me back and told me she was  thinking about it and decided to go right then and there. Even better.
I called her when I got to work the next morning and there was no answer, I assumed she  had been in the waiting room at the hospital ER all night.
An hour later I got a call from the hospital telling me that that my  mother was being admitted, that her blood pressure was so high that  she was very close to having a stroke. They kept her for 3 day’s even though she did not have health insurance, not even state assisted.
They then found a flurry of problems and she was put  on all sorts of life long medications. My sister helped her pursue  avenues to get health insurance. Part of the routine examinations was a mammogram and she was called back for re testing. They  found some spots and she was  diagnosed with the beginnings of breast cancer, below the level of 1.
Thank goodness for little Tex, We all believe he saved her life 2 times over now.
Always look for the signs, they are out there, sometimes we just don’t recognize them.

Hello! My name is Pixie! I was saved by my owner 5 years ago in a park. She took me and my siblings to a vet, and then we were all treated. So here I am, away from a life of fear and hunger to one of happiness and bliss! I’ve put on so much weight now. Anyway, I love being here :) And I am thankful for every day.
