Rescued Is My Favorite Breed
OdateTake was inspired by none other than my rescue and service dog Take. Take is a Jindo mixed with a Japanese Akita and maybe some Shiba. He had a long history before coming to us, but in short he was a South Korean meat market rescue that hadn't been shown love when he should have, even after his time there ended. It wasn't until the rescue organization we adopted him from, TwoDogFarms, managed to get a hold of him that he was shown empathy for his personal needs. I would not have been able to bring myself to start a small shop like this without him.
A year later we adopted a dog when we were just there to look-Vojja, our Border Collie Husky mix with maybe some Shepherd. She was from the Sacramento SPCA who took her in as a chipped stray whose prior owner did not want her returned.
Both rescue organizations are absolutely amazing and have people that combine their knowledge and expertise to give to those who simply ask.
With patience, love, and understanding both Take and Vojja blossomed into the happy dogs they are today. I do this for them and for my love of animals. You know what they say, I work so that my dogs can live a better life!
For any who were curious and managed to read this far, I'm thankful you took the time out of your day to do so. Everyone starts somewhere, and no matter the years, neglect, or hardships they are still worth it for every minute. My inspiration from Take and Vojja is to share the love and joy they give me with others through my arts and crafts, while also helping strengthen the human-animal bond to find that joy they so rightly deserve.
