Rescue Story: Sailor

This story was sent to us by Kim from Glendale Heights, Illinois. Thank you so much Kim!

I’ll never forget the day I met Sailor!

It was on November 1, 2002. I’d gone to the local Humane Society to donate some food and blankets. A little black dog was curled up under the desk. He was 3 months old. He was adorable!


I had 2 cats at home but I couldn’t resist Sailor! He’s my best friend. My kids grew up with him. When my older daughter went to college she asked me to bring a picture of Sailor for her dorm room.

Sailor’s been by my side through some of the worst times of my life. He’s given me comfort when I had none. He’s getting older but aside from a little arthritis he’s doing well. He lives going for walks and loves the park. We hit the beach together and make dog friends!

Sailor is the light of my life!
