Meet the newest member of the Lacquered Lover family - Elle! (Puppy Spam!!!)

Good morning my fellow Lacquered Lovers!  Happy Wednesday to you all!  Today, I'm taking a detour from nail polish to tell you all about the newest member of my family, my rescue dog Elle!


I have always grown up with dogs.  We had two rescue beagles when I was younger and my parents have a rescue cocker spaniel now.  I have always wanted a dog in the city and felt that as I approach my 30th birthday and have gone through some life changes, now was the time for me to adopt a pup of my own!  I was searching for about 2 months before I found little Elle.  I knew I wanted to rescue because there are so many dogs out there that need good homes.  

I found the wonderful organization Animal Lighthouse Rescue who works with an organization down in Puerto Rico that takes in dogs that needs homes and then flies them up to the US to be adopted.  Elle was found at not even a year old and pregnant.  She had 6 puppies and all were adopted and then it was Elle's turn!  Elle was being fostered by two wonderful people in Brooklyn when I met her and it was love at first sight!  I'm so thankful to Ava and Ryan for taking such good care of her and Julie at Animal Lighthouse for all of her help with my adoption!



Yes she's completely taken over my bed



My mom got this adorable pic of Elle and her "grandpa" sleeping together




So, everyone, meet Elle!  My adorable year and a half old, mostly beagle, mush of a dog.  I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a companion to rescue a dog because they give so much love and not only do you rescue them, but they rescue you too.

  1. I'm always overjoyed when I see that someone has rescued an animal from a shelter. I don't think people realize the significance of that and what goes on when people sell animals. It looks like you have rescued her but I have a feeling in the long run Elle might have rescued you just as much. From my to rescue dogs and and myself to you and your lovely family...I hope you have a long and happy relationship.

  4. You are such an inspiration! I also have a puppy girl who was kind of rescued (someone adopt her for a week and didn't want her anymore). Thank you for sharing your story, and the pictures of Elle and your family. I'm glad she is loved and has a good home:) You have a heart of gold.
    ADOPT, DON'T SHOP!

  5. Hi,
    It’s been a couple of weeks since we’ve heard from you and wanted to try other communication channels as you did not replay to any of my last emails.
    I would really love to know a time frame for the article you promised at the beginning of this collaboration.
