It’s Been a Year!

It’s hard to believe that one year ago today, Coby entered our lives. Born on September 11, 2014, Coby wasn’t considered “perfect” in the eyes of the pet stores because he has a luxating patella (moving kneecap). This is very common with small dogs. So, Coby was given up to  a rescue. This may seem like a sad situation, but it was a BLESSING for us. We were the lucky ones to have the opportunity to adopt a precious Yorkshire Terrier…our “C” of the gang.

It was November 26, 2014, when I talked to the founder of Homeward Bound Rescue about another possible adoption. I remember her words to this day, “It’s your lucky day. I just got an adorable Yorkie yesterday. He is neutered and ready to go home with someone”. The next day I picked up Coby on what was suppose to be a two-week trial. I knew from the moment I saw him that he would be ours! Would Artie and Buddy feel the same?

Lots of sniffing happened that first day, and to be honest, it took about two weeks for Artie and Buddy to begin warming up to Coby. Once they warmed up, I knew Coby was HOME!

These were some of the first pictures of them together. It made my heart so happy to see the three of them starting to become “brothers”.  Today, one year later, they are inseparable…they are ABC!!!

  1. Rachel, As an adult I’ve had 5 dogs and didn’t purchase one of them. There are so many rescues and strays , I always urge people to stay away from breeders and pet stores. I wish your family, which, of course includes Coby, all the best!

  2. One of mine also has a luxating patella, I think the vet said it was a level 4. That was 5 years ago, and it never has been an issue for him. He still loves to run around and fetch and play as much as you’d expect. Thanks for taking a rescue!
