The life you save, may just save your life someday.

Two dogs that I rescued from kill shelters have gone on to save my life on two different occassions. Bruiser (a Thai Ridgeback) who's now made history by being the first for his breed to become a Service Dog, saved me in October of 2004 from a rattlesnake. On November 6, 2009 a Boxer named Pheobe (who was overlooked by many potential adopters, because she was an adult dog), saved me from choking on a grape. I believe that rescued animals know who saved them, and will return the favor when called upon.

Informational Background

I'm a Self Taught Behaviorist as well as a Dog Trainer (puppy clases through advanced). All of the animals you see on my site are looking for their forever home. When you adopt a pet from me, you adopt me as a resource for the life of your pet.

How did they Come to be Posted here

Some of the dogs listed here are because their owners didn't do all of their homework before buying a their pet. Due to the owner having health problems they can no longer care or handle their dogs. The Basenjis and Thai Ridgebacks that are listed on this site are here because I'm the rescue coordinator for the Basenji Club of Cincinnati and the Association of Thai Ridgeback Owners & Fanciers. Many are here, just because I felt that I could help them find a better more educated home. Some are just looking for a new leash on life, after being rescued/saved from kill shelters. All animals are fully rehabilitated before they ever come up for adoption. The Association of Thai Ridgeback Owners & Fanciers has been rescuing and rehabilitating Thai Ridgebacks since 2002, I personally have been rescuing them since 2000. I have been in Basenjis since 1996, and have been doing rescue, and rehabilitating them since that time.

Who We Are

CCK9s has been rescuing homeless pets since 1983, I started out finding kittens new homes when I was still living at home with my parents. It's a one woman opperation here I started rescuing dogs in the early 1990's. In 1998 I had a rescue hit closer to home than anyone would have expected. Toby was one of my Basenjis that was sold to a pet home; only to find out that the new owners burned him with cigarettes. I rescued and rehabilitated him, and he is the reason I still do rescue today.

Special Thanks

I would like to thank Miamitown Pet Hospital and its staff (513-353-1229) for vetting all of my own dogs as well as my foster dogs. They are Angels in my book. I would also like to extend a big thank you to Elizabeth Akers of Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue in Northern California for saving many Thai Ridgebacks and fostering them until we can find them a home.

Adopting a friend

I personally believe dogs that are rescued become more than a pet to any person, they are forever grateful that you have saved their life and have given them a second chance at happiness. Here at CCK9s I'm always available to help the new adopters through troubled times and if every thing else fails, I do take the dogs that were adopted from me back. After all, I love all of the dogs that have come through my house.

Donations Greatly Appreciated

Those Who Have Crossed Over the Rainbow Bridge

Hope was a six month old, yellow, Thai Ridgeback puppy. She was found at a Home Depot in Rosenberg, Texas hiding in fear under a car. The shelter local shelter had her for two weeks, praying that her owners would come and save her. Unfortunately for Hope her luck had ran out; we got our information too late about this little girl, and she was put to sleep on July 19, 2005. Hope is now in a loving place for she has passed over the Rainbow Bridge.
