What can we say about Mikey (aka Miken)? It was truly cosmic destiny that he came to us. We think Mikey may be a 1,000 year old Budhist monk who is on about his seventeenth life journey. Unlike most dogs, he looks at you right in the eye without malice or aggression and does not become intimidated or fearful when you look back. He seems like he looks into your soul, and opens his own to you, if your're receptive and sensitive enough to look back and notice. He's a protector but not a bully, a loving playmate who lets everyone else win, even though he could pin most other dogs down like rag dolls with one 4 inch wide paw if he chose to. At 120 lbs. (and counting) of solid muscle, he behaves like he has nothing to prove and even the ornery and ill behaved dogs at the dog park give him plenty of deference. He is the intimidating (but quiet) backup to Lana (our Ridgy/Boxer mix) when she goes off like a roman-candle on a stanger at the door. At the same time, he could not be more docile and submissive with the kids and would literally crawl into my shorts and not leave my side 24/7 if he could. A more loyal and faithful friend could not be imagined. He learned the rules of the house almost overnight and is thoroughly obedient, the slightest stern voice sends Mikey into a severe state of remorse. Mikey is truly a 1 in a million dog. If RRUS has even one more like him, they will have done a huge service to a deserving family.

Wow, he sounds wonderful! Somehow I think the rescue dogs know that they've been given a second chance and are really grateful. Funny how these dogs' "humans" feel as if they're the privileged ones to have them in their lives. How people can abandon and/or mistreat these wonderful dogs is beyond comprehension. I think I speak for all adopting families when I say thank you RRUS for bringing these dogs into our lives.
