My story

Special Needs Doggie! (The Divine) Miss Boss She's large and in-charge and knows what she wants. And what she really, really wants is her own family. Boss is looking for a very special friend; someone who will overlook her shortcomings, work with her on challenges, and most of all, appreciate her for her talents. If that sounds like a lot, it might be, but Miss Boss is totally worth it! First thing first: for Boss, compromise is key. She wants to be your partner! Some may consider it a shortcoming, but we think it demonstrates her intelligence. Boss can be a little bit stubborn. Say, you want to walk across the street, but there is a great scent (or a big puddle) she needs to examine on the grass. Well, Boss will let you know that she's not ready to cross the street. She won't bolt, but she will stop and will stay where she stops until you compromise. A little treat and a kind word and she knows you're working WITH her. She's ready to please. So why does a little thing like compromise require a special friend for Boss? Boss has one big challenge. She has never met a fence she can't get over. Never. No one knows what she's running from, or running to. We don't think she really knows. When asked why he climbed Mt Everest, George Mallory responded: "Because it's there. That's Boss. Sadly, the world is not a friendly place for a big girl like Boss to run loose. That's why she needs a very special friend. Someone who will protect her from her own inner challenge. If you are that person, someone willing to put in the time and the resources to keep her safe and loved, you will earn a friendship (and plenty of fun stories) that will make your heart shine! Boss is not only beautiful inside and out, she is very talented and she knows it all. Sit, Down, Up, Off, Stay, Come; (relative to these last two, Boss is admittedly a bit selective in her response ). Boss is loyal, loving, funny, playful, treat driven, good on a leash, an excellent running partner, very smart and an all-around wonderful companion. As you can see by her photos, Miss Boss is a favorite to many volunteers at ACT. She is has our dog walking group named after her, "The Boss Walk." The group walks every day. Call if you'd like to walk and meet Miss Boss. She's willing and eager to be a partner, are you?

More about this rescue

The vision for ACT has been brewing in the minds of the Animal Compassion Team founders for many years. The paths we have walked have prepared us and tested our determination through hard work, buckets of tears, mountains of fecal matter (a favorite topic of discussion amongst animal rescuers), and more than our fair share of discouragement and heartbreak. Having said that, why would we choose to dive in deeper? For the love of the animals we serve. It is just that simple. Dogs, cats, and other wonderful animals are dying in huge numbers daily. We hope to help change that. In August of 2009, we became a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation with California and the Federal Government. It was and continues to be, a huge leap of faith for all of us who already feel overwhelmed by the work we are doing, but we believe this is the time....this is what we have all been preparing for. One life saved makes all the effort and emotional investment worthwhile. This is going to be an exciting journey, and we hope to post MANY happy endings. Our Mission Statement: To provide a safe haven for domestic animals, regardless of breed or species, through rescue, rehabilitation, adoption, and sanctuary. To advocate for the humane treatment of animals and promote the human-animal bond. To educate the public about the importance of kindness, compassion, and responsible pet ownership which will emphasize spaying and neutering. To cooperate and work with other animal rescues and shelters towards the goal of becoming a no-kill nation.
