Ruby (formerly known as Garcia)

Garcia traveled from Aruba to Massachusetts to eventually move in with her new forever mom, Kyle, and her family. Garcia is now Ruby, and has a doggie sibling named Misty. As Garcia, this sweet baby was fostered in Aruba first by Esther & Ron, and then by Juliette & her daughters. In the U.S., Christine & Mark took over fostering our cuddly little ARF-Aruba sweetheart. We extend our thanks to all these fosters for the great job they did getting Garcia now Ruby ready for her forever home. Fosters Christine & Mark actually transported Garcia now Ruby to the states themselves, along with her sister, Gira. We thank them for offering our ‘G’ litter puppies a ride. We are grateful to Kyle for choosing Ruby, formerly known as Garcia, to be the newest member of her family.
Happy life, Ruby!
Foxy A Puppy From ArubaBoy With Dog Adopted From Aruba

Bella (formerly known as Foxy)

Foxy is now Bella and lives in New Hampshire with her new forever family. As Foxy, she lived with her fabulous Aruba foster, Jasmin, along with several of her ‘F’ litter puppy siblings, of which there were 10 in total! Foxy moved in with foster Patti in New Hampshire when she left the island. We thank our amazing fosters for doing a wonderful job of caring for and loving this beautiful girl as she waited for a new home. Foxy left the island with transporters Suzanne and Peter. We are grateful to them for giving our sweet girl a lift to the U.S. In fact, Suzanne and Peter are ARF-Aruba adopters themselves! We appreciate their dedication to our foundation. Brett and his son, Dexter, met Foxy now Bella at Patti’s. They decided that this very beautiful girl would fit right in with their family. Bella will be having many adventures since Brett loves to hike. She also has a new doggie sibling by the name of Lulu. Thank you Brett and Dexter, for choosing Foxy now Bella, and giving her a very special forever home. Happy life, Bella!

Sky With FriendSkye

Trixie (Formerly known as Skye)

Skye has made it to Pennsylvania, and into the arms of her new forever mom, Tasha! Skye is now Trixie, and has begun the good life with her new family. This very charming little girl was fostered in Aruba by Esther, who nurtured her back to health from illness. As Skye, she was the sibling of Sammy and Skippy, who were all found together in San Nicolaas, then rescued by trapper Jacqueline. All three baby girls were in poor shape, and their survival was actually in question. We are grateful to Esther for all the love and care she gave to this very beautiful pup, and pulled her through. We also extend our thanks to foster Patti, who continued her care in New Hampshire, once she arrived in the states. Patti was responsible for Trixie’s adoption by Tasha and her family. We thank ARF Aruba volunteer Steve for transporting beautiful Skye now Trixie to the U.S. With gratitude, we say thank you to Tasha and her family for giving this sweet and happy girl her forever home. Happy life, Trixie!
Adopted Dog From ArubaDog From Aruba In Snow Jacket

Shyla (Formerly known as Cali)

Shyla, formerly known as Cali, loves her dog walks and runs, and is already at least 25 pounds, which is triple her size from when she first arrived at her forever home in Massachusetts with Abby, Kenny, and Corinna. Abby shared that Shyla is getting better on the leash but tends to lunge across her path in pursuit of windblown leaves! Shyla’s puppy training has begun, and she’s already doing well. Abby said she’s so proud of her. She added that Shyla was by far the youngest dog in the class and there was so much to take in, but she held it together amazingly well, and stayed focused on figuring out what was asked of her. Abby was touched by her trust in her to be her confident leader. As you can see, Shyla enjoys time with Corinna in the snow. She also enjoys cozying up with Kenny in the morning while he has his coffee. Abby is pretty sure that he’s her favorite person. We’re pleased to see Shyla, formerly known as Cali, loving her new life and her forever family. Happy life, Shyla!
