OCEAN SHORES, Wash. – A North Beach resident was able to play a pretty big part in one family’s celebration of the holidays, after an overnight tragedy sent them looking for a last minute puppy replacement.
North Beach Paws reports on Christmas Eve they received a call from local dispatchers that a Christmas Miracle was needed. A mother and grandmother had lost her K-9 companion of 14 years and the family planning to surprise her with a new puppy woke to find the puppy had passed away overnight.

One of two Pugs being fostered by North Beach PAWS staff was later reported to be a perfect fit, and mutual love at first sight. Maggie the Pug was adopted from Harbor Rescue, and saved Christmas in time for one family. Her brother Max was adopted on Saturday.
COSMOPOLIS, Wash. – Giving hope to a dog named Hope, and thanks to a growing facebook community on the harbor, Hope is home from surgery.
She was found severely injured last month in Hoquiam, Deb Thomas Blake of Harbor Rescue tells us “she’s injured, NorthBeach PAWS paid for the x-rays, but couldn’t take on the surgery bills so she ended up coming to Harbor Rescue.” Blake said she was either hit by a car, or kicked, “her lungs are bruised on the same side as the broken pelvis, and she’s so short – she’s only 11 pounds.
She’s back from surgery, and recovering well. Blake said the terrier is looking much happier in her forever home, and her Tumwater Veterinarian bill is down to $475 from over $1800 – thanks in part to the “Grays Harbor Scanner” facebook community, and followers of Harbor Rescue who have donated.
