As I was writing this post the word “Rescued” just wasn’t sitting right with my spirit and so I went to do some research.

I began questioning, What is the definition of Rescued?

Marriam- Webster says:

Rescue (transitive verb)

: to save (someone or something) from danger or harm

So come to think about it, I cant really say that I “Rescued” them due to the fact that, they were not in danger or harm before being given to me.

I think it would be more appropriate to say that they were “Rehomed” opposed to “Rescued”.  Life’s situations made it so that the owners no longer had the time, space, resources, etc to properly care for the dogs. Thus, I took them in.

Yes I have 5 dogs in my home! .. lol

I only truly wanted 3-4 and so  if anyone is interest in adopting  1 or 2 of them. I wouldn’t mind having a conversation about it.
