Our Happy Tails adoption stories make us smile, yet this amazing recent family reunion trumps our male Schnauzer Rocky adoption.
Rocky went to his forever home this week, but the best news is his real name is Prince and he reunited with his forever family!
Look at the smiles on Prince and his mom, Dora!
Prince (temporarily named Rocky) fell victim to Tropical Storm Isaac when it hit Central Florida in late August. He was separated from his family and was lost for more than a month. Lifeline had discovered him as a stray, so he spent a few weeks enjoying the 3 acre Lifeline Dog Rescue property and private lake.
Our staff registered “Rocky” with the local Humane Society, and as fate intervened the match was eventually made. Lifeline staff confirmed his name as they watched his ears perk up when called “Prince”.
The meeting to reunite Prince and Dora was just as thrilling. Prince ran to Dora all excited, tail wagging, and the smiles captured above show the real love between them both.
What was especially cute was he would run back to Lifeline partner and on site manager Kim, and jump up happy happy happy as if to say “Thank you! Thank you!”, then back to Dora, and back to Kim again, then back and forth a few more times.

Lifeline is truly grateful to the Humane Society for enabling this family reunion. All “adoptions” are Happy Tails. This one is particularly gratifying.
Best wishes to Dora and Prince for many more years of happy memories.
