Sadly on January 19 we said goodbye to this little lady with such a big personality. STRSE leaves no Scottie behind! Mrs Hazel Louise Hill came to us three weeks prior after being dumped in an Atlanta shelter just before Christmas. Diagnosed with Bladder cancer only a few days after we rescued her we knew her time was short so we sought out to make sure that she had THE very best days left and she absolutely did!
Cooked meals, stroller rides, riding in the car, power napping on the couch being snuggled and surrounded by love and kindness is how she has spent the last three weeks. Wanted. Cared for. Comforted. Loved. Happy.
Her time with us may have been brief but her message is clear. Make every single day count. Love your family with all of your heart. Never turn your back on those who need you. Always do your best. The heart of a dog is pure.
Rest In Peace sweet girl. Run free. You are now perfect, complete, lacking in nothing. And we are so blessed to have known you.

For those of you that remember this girl, she is our first page calendar pinup for 2017.
Scottish Terrier Rescue of the Southeast took Lacy into rescue in October of 2014 after she found in an abandoned Orlando house with two deceased male Scotties. This situation made the news and was in all of the Orlando newspapers headlined as "The House of Horror". The first photos of her were absolutely heartbreaking. She was in horrible shape. Flea infested, bald and severely bloated. After being taken by animal control, STRSE was contacted and stepped in to help give her the best possible care that all of our Scotties deserve. The Scottie community was very supportive and slowly we got her feeling much better. She was diagnosed with terminal cancer, among a mountain of other medical issues. We placed her into a forever/hospice foster home to live out her last days surrounded by love, kindness and care. She was estimated to be about 10-11 years old in 2014. This month marks the 2 year anniversary that she's been in rescue!!!
STRSE continues to care for her medical needs including a special diet, daily gallbladder meds and eye meds. She is doing well and is getting the love that she so deserves and should have always received. We can never take away the past but we can certainly exchange it for an awesome happily ever after.
Thank you, Scottie Family for helping us make these stories possible.

Please welcome Dallas to STRSE!
This little guy was rescued from a neglect situation. Dallas came to us filthy, severely matted, infested with fleas, full of hookworms and has many broken teeth. His ears are raw on the tips from fly bites. We are so happy that we have him now and can go ahead with the vet care and love that he should have been getting all along. We are just so thankful that he was heartworm negative! Welcome to the good life Sir!

Do I not look like THE sweetest, most adorable puppy EVER?? Let my rescuers quickly clear up this myth! LOL! This 9 month old pup landed herself in a shelter after she was sold to the wrong person. Molly is very high energy, PURE puppy and takes her title as terrier very seriously and to the highest degree! LOL! STRSE wants to be sure that all of our rescue Scotties are appropriately placed with the right match when looking for forever homes. This little lady's big day was when she was adopted by a Scottish family who can keep up with her energy level and give her a life that she will be very active and happy with. Her new dad is enchanted with her antics and says that she is quite the Madam.
