Our Rescue Story – The Dog Perry

A few months ago, my husband Ben & I made the best decision of our lives (aside from getting married of course). We decided it was time to add to our little family by rescuing an animal who deserved a second chance.

Ben grew up with Siberian Huskies and knew that he’d love to have a husky again one day. We searched high and low at local shelters to find a husky mix and finally found a shelter exclusively for husky’s located a few hours from our home. On a Sunday afternoon, we drove down to the rescue shelter and met with multiple dogs. The volunteers brought out a dog named Perry who they thought was a Husky/Australian Shepard mix. The second we laid eyes on Perry, we knew he was the one for us!

We were told that Perry was pulled out of a shelter in California with 10 other dogs and transported to Illinois, only a few days before they were about to be killed. His previous owner had somehow managed to break this poor puppy’s jaw & as a result he is missing about 7 teeth. We feared Perry may have trust issues given his past but Perry wants nothing more than to love you and shower you with kisses.

Ben & I spoil our pooch and let him snuggle in bed with us every night (he loves to spoon). Perry has a very high energy level and we run him 4 miles every day (he’d go forever if you’d let him!). We suspect he is part Australian Cattle Dog because he can jump about 5 feet high with no effort at all! Because Perry is missing many of his bottom teeth, his tongue always hangs out on one side – which only adds to his charm! We love Perry more than words can express and are so happy to have given him the life he deserves.
