Thank you to the wonderful people at Family Dogs New Life for taking such great care of our beloved Kermie and working to get him adopted! Check out “Kermit’s Piteo” they just put together that dramatizes his long journey to get to Family Dogs New Life from Oakland! And, look at the new handsome photos of him! We knew he was a star!

Kermie got all packed yesterday and left for us big adventure North! We will miss him and wish him the best!
You can see Kermie in the background of the photo below on March 3, 2011 when we rescued him from a life on a chain and possible dog fighting. We arrested Kermie’s owner for animal abuse and took his dogs, including Kermie, to the Shelter. Kermie has a congenital defect of his back legs which make him hop a bit like a frog. He had trouble even walking when we first got him – but now that he’s had regular exercise, he’s even able to run! Since Kermie is so easy to recognize, we knew that we couldn’t adopt him in Oakland where his abuser might spot him. We reached out to Megan Alexander who we were introduced to by Our Pack and who helped us place dogs from our 33 dog rescue. Thanks to Megan Alexander, Kermie will be headed out of state on Tuesday to a foster home!
The brindle girl in the front of the photo is “Gracy” or otherwise known as “Vera Wang.” She’s available for adoption! She is currently at WOOF Doggie Day Care in San Ramon – visit her there or call them for more information.:)
