It was a bit of s struggle to get my older Weimaraner Silvia on board with the new addition. Silvia had been so bonded with Hank that when he passed away she was deeply depressed. When we brought Henri home she did not want anything to do with her. But Henri is such lovebug and so persistent as you can see from some of the photos i attached that after a few weeks of encouragement, Henri stole Silvia's heart just as she did mine when I met her in Madison. She wears her heart on her side (LITERALLY, you can see in the pic) is known at the dog parks as "Henri with a Heart" and its hard to believe but one of her other best friends is our dwarf rex bunny named David. She met him the first day i brought her home (pictured) and they remain good pals. Its actually funny that a 2lb rabbit can boss around a 70lb hound, but it happens! She LOVES to watch TV and even interacts with the animals on television. its too cute for words!
2 years later we are back in my hometown of Albuquerque NM with my 2 girls and we are enjoying every minute of each others company. Henri and Silvia are inseparable and they enjoy going rafting, camping, hiking, horseback riding and many other adventures with me. She is so well behaved and actually talks! When i come home from work she howls to me and I may be a bit biased but i think it sounds a lot like "i love you mom i am so glad you are home!"
She can be a bit of a ham. when i am on the phone she tends to steal the conversation. She gets compliments everywhere we go. For this region she is a very striking young lady! People just love her. I might also mention i think she might be the softest dog in New Mexico! people can't keep their hands off her!
I take pictures regularly of the cuteness and have even sent some in that have been published on sites like cutedogpictures.net and funnydogpics.com
I love my little Henri Lou, thank you MARF for eveeyhing you do. You say saving lives one pet at a time and its true but maybe a bit of an understatement. You saved me and my Silvia too so you can now claim you're saving 3 lives at a time!

own, the canine "children" have captured our hearts. I thank God for MARF and for the blessing of adopting Malcolm. Keep up the good work! God bless! Beth Ann Meek (P.S. One picture shows Malcolm as "Superman" with long hair and one shows his summer cut. I prefer his longer hair but he is just as handsome with his summer cut!)

Even though I knew that she was a perfect match, it took a couple of weeks for Sandy and Buddy to realize that Zena was here to stay and finally started accepting her into the pack. To this point, she seemed confused that they didn't really care for her company. Zena has added simple joy to all of us. Sandy and Buddy, which are no spring chickens, are now running, playing, and having a great time with Zena. She is happy, playful, and seems quite intelligent.
I am so glad that this foundation exists to give such loving, perfect dogs a second chance.

Though MARF didn't have a lot of information on her, as she was a new addition to the foundation, she was absolutely perfect: sweet in nature, good with other animals, potty trained, playful, well mannered and happy to be rescued. She has been a blessing to myself and my family. We all love her, take pride in spoiling her and enjoy her love of attention! She loves to be outside but enjoys the comforts of being an inside dog (including her favorite activity: snuggling with her people). She still happily greets everyone that she meets and loves to play with other furry friends. In the summer, she enjoys swimming and in the winter, she thinks that snow was dropped just for her.
She is so happy and grateful for being rescued and I am so grateful for the happiness and love that she has brought to my life. I love my Piper Ann and I don't know what I would do without her.
Please adopt a dog! They'll save you just as much as you've saved them!

We loved him from the very beginning. He is black, white and brown with blue eyes and is a lovely,well behaved dog. We are so glad that we contacted Madison A.R.F. We are very happy with Haze. He is as sweet as Sinatra and I think they would have liked each other. I recommend the rescue foundation to anyone. Haze is a real blessing to us.
