Charlotte was part of the infamous Miracle Puppies who were found in 2016 with burning skin from a severe case of mange. The puppies healed and have all gone on to loving home (with a lot more fur on their bodies!)

Hi there! I saw the post about sending our alumni pups. We got Charlotte who was from the severely hairless bunch that was found. She is so so awesome. She is still very shy and timid but a true lover and protector of our family. We realized Charlotte needed a champion and we got Rudy (now Calvin) about 6-7 months after we got Charlotte. They are two peas in a pod. Calvin is very high energy, loves playing and an awesome listener. The best decision we ever made was to get them both. They have been great to our new addition to the family, our son who is now 1.5 years old.

We hope you enjoy the pictures. I love following you guys and try to support you all as much as possible!

Kristina Millman-Rinaldi

Kristina Millman-Rinaldi has been changing the face of animal welfare in Detroit for well over a decade. The nonprofit organization is Detroit’s first and only no-kill shelter, which finds homes for neglected dogs and animals who are victims of violent crimes. As Detroit Dog Rescue’s Executive Director, Kristina worked closely with Detroit Mayor, Mike Duggan’s administration to create Detroit’s first animal welfare committee. This partnership resulted in new leadership and policies for the city’s municipal animal shelter. Detroit now works harder to find alternatives to euthanasia due to overpopulation, while focusing on public safety. Kristina has been a part of several documentaries, news stories, and reality shows highlighting Detroit’s stray dog epidemic and she has raised millions of dollars to fund initiatives that support animals, especially ones who are victims of violent crimes. In the past, Kristina has been the recipient of the Mackinac Humanitarian Award, Beaumont Hospital’s President Award for Community Giving, and has been named WDVD’s “Woman of the Year” for her ability to create solutions in underserved communities.
