My Rescue Story

Smartie came to our rescue as a Owner Release. She was part of an accidental litter of 11 puppies. With mom, dad, puppies and the human family this now caused issues in this home. It became apparent due to the size of the home and the large amount of dogs in this rental unit that it was a tight squeeze. Almost immediately after the puppies were born the landlord came knocking. It ultimately came to a point that the landlord gave notice to the human family that if the dogs were not removed from the home that they would have to start the eviction process. The family had one choice to either give up this family of dogs or to loose their roof over their head. To make matters worse the husband was in the military himself and the home was being paid for by his military housing allotment.

The family decided to reach out to our rescue to help them. As our board are made up of volunteers who work at jobs of their own, we needed to wait until they got off of work to accept the family. By the time board got to the home the family already have given away 2 of the puppies.

As 3 of the board members spoke to the family and signed off on ownership of the dog family, they had recommended that the human family learn about accidental litters, spay and neutering and back yard breeding.

As we arrived back at the rescue we evaluated all dogs and learned Caroline, the mom, was emaciated to the point that she was no longer producing milk for her young pups. We recalculated the pups were only 5 and a 1/2 weeks old, not 8 weeks old that was explained to us. We also saw Korvo, the dad, was on the thin side as well, even though a great pleasure to be around.

Our rescue started mom and Dad on food that would help gain weight and bring back health. We had to be very careful with mom as we needed to put weight on but not change the balance of producing good milk for the pups.


Smartie will be ready for adoption after he is completely weened from mom properly, up to date on shots, and fixed, but you can put in an application now for Smartie.

The Meaning of my name

Hooks Home Bound Rescue names each dog after a fallen tow truck driver, "Hook", if they do not come to us with a name.

"Smartie" did not come to us with a name so her rescue is in memory of "James H. Smart"

During the recovery of a CTL Distribution tank trailer Mr. Smart was killed when the wood blocking failed and caused a chain to strike Mr. Smart in the head. He was pronounced dead later at the hospital.
