What does the R.O.A.R. Squad stand for? Rescue Owners Are Rockin’ Check it out!


The Humans: Dylan Buli and Kyla Duffy

The Pets: Bill, 4 years (Boston Terrier puppy mill survivor), Tux & Chewie, both about 9 (adopted cats)

High Flyin’ Couple: I (Kyla) publish books about adopted dogs to raise money for animal rescue efforts. I also perform aerial fabric and high flying trapeze, and have just put together a performance incorporating my skills and information about puppy mills and dog rescue. My websites are Happy Tails Books and Up For Pups! My husband, Dylan, is an electrical engineer and private pilot, so he helps a lot with transporting foster dogs around to their new homes.

(Not So) Great Escape: My foster dog Bill was one of the worst disasters our rescue group had seen – a puppy mill breeder for two years put out to auction and left with terrible emotional scars. He was so scared of people that he managed to get out of my yard and hide in the woods for THREE WEEKS!

Making Up For Lost Time: When he was found, he was emaciated and even more terrified, with a wound so deep that you could see muscle. The shelter wasn’t sure if it would be more humane to put him out of his misery or to let me try and rehabilitate him, but luckily they choose the latter. For a month we went to the vet every day to change his bandages, and for three months he was too scared to move. Of course we adopted him, and I promised him at least 2 hours of fun outdoor activities every day to make up for the two years he spent in the puppy mill.

Whole Lot of Love: After a year he’s almost a “whole” dog. He still has his quirks, like “begging” to him is sitting on my foot and facing away from me! We hike, visit the dogpark, swim, and drive around together (he loves the car). He also loves other dogs, so we get him his own foster dog from MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue as often as possible. Sometimes he teaches them, and other times they teach him. Either way it’s always a good experience.

    Always love to see an adorable Boston! And one with such heart and strength is even better!! Great story.

    Wow that sounds like a scared pup!

    I love that he has his own foster dog. Mesa is Baily’s dog and Big Carl is Mesa’s dog. I guess that means someday we have to get Big Carl a dog…

  3. I think the husband is Rockin’ for flying foster dogs where they need to be!
