Confident Queso comes closer to Misha May foster mom!

Queso has been in his foster home for 3 weeks and 2 days and has shown steady progress from hiding behind a table to now greeting his foster at the door. His safe distance has decreased a room size but he doesn't indicate that he wants to be handled just yet. Patience, time and love lead to healing.

Sugar & pups meet Misha May volunteers at Libby & Matt's safe haven

Misha May volunteers Doug, Ann, Melissa and Lorraine will help Matt & Libby transport Sugar & her pups to their Misha May foster home with Kelly & Tim and family.

The pups are most likely 3-4 weeks old and doing great. We'll keep you posted about adoption schedules for mom and pups. If you are interested in adoption, please submit an application from our website.

Also, if you would like to donate to their care, please use the Make a Donation button at or mail a check to Misha May, PO Box 151166, Lakewood, CO 80215-1166.

Misha May's Sugar and her hungry pups!

Sugar, a terrier mix mom, and her 6 pups were saved by Matt & Libby from a precarious situation. Certainly they would not have survived. This video shows them blossoming and getting stronger at the couple's home.

Sugar, a nicer dog you won't meet, will be available for adoption around the end of July in the Denver area. The puppies will be ready in August or as soon as we have them spayed and neutered. Applications can be found, and donations for their care can be made, at

Queso says Good Meowrning to his Misha May supporters 6-14-11

Queso was waiting at the door for breakfast from foster mom Lorraine. He didn't seem concerned about her moving toward him with the dish. She decided to go ahead and clean the litter box while he was eating and he tolerated that. He looked in her direction but kept eating.

Huge progress from just last evening - going VERY SLOW in the beginning is THE SECRET to moving forward and it usually goes faster if you have laid a strong foundation of trust.

Queso calmly eats for his Misha May fans - improving every day!

Queso is in his third week of foster with Lorraine and he is becoming more trusting every day. Slowly - slowly she has stayed a few more seconds the last several days while he eats, and today she took a video.
Remember that when he first came he would not come out in the open at all, but mostly hid between a table and the wall. YEAH Queso!

Kabul & his sisters attend Misha May's Understanding Dogs class - part one

This is Kabul, a 1 year old rescue from Afghanistan. He is the first to receive attention and praise at the class. His sisters will also each get a turn to acclimate. Then we will give all 3 dogs a fun positive experience together.

Misha May rescued littermates Ringo and Valentino reunite after 3 years

Ringo and Valentino did not say "Hey Bro, good to see ya." It wasn't clear to us whether they realized that they were brothers or not.

Ringo has more of a 'straight-on let's get going' lab playstyle, while Valentino is more reserved in the beginning until he knows a dog. Both boys like to hump and throw play bows when they get going.

The first encounter wasn't filmed. It did not go smoothly but was not a disaster. We gave them a break and then filmed this second meeting where they communicated better. Valentino seemed to become more confident knowing Ringo was not a threat, and Ringo seemed to tone down his play in response to Valentino's signals. LOVE these boys!
