Prestige Pet(s) of the Month

April 2017




This is Tucker! Tucker is a rescue pup from Last Chance Rescue in Waldorf, MD. He traveled pretty far to find his forever family, as he was originally found in Mississippi. The first time Tucker and I saw each other, it was love at first sight! We had an instant connection and have been inseparable ever since! Tucker is about 10 months old and loves tennis balls (even though he loses most of them under the couch), squeaky toys, peanut butter, honey ham, his puppy friends, and his family. He is a happy boy who loves running around with other puppies and playing all day. But, he's also just as happy curling up on the couch with his family and watching a movie. Tucker is a great pup and we are so lucky that he found us!

Cared by our very own Natalie Little, this is Murphy - a 16 month old boxer. He's my sidekick, goes everywhere that I do. He loves hiking and running through Asheville and Pisgah and enjoys the craft beer scene as well. You can even find him sitting on a barstool like a human.

This is Libby, born 11/8/16. She is an apricot goldendoodle. She loves spending her days chasing her doggie brother, tormenting her oldest doggie sister, and wrestling her kitten sisters. She is a hoot to watch playing with her humans and loves chewing shoes and Legos. She doesn't quite know what to do with our chickens, but she is trying to figure them out. She is such an intelligent, sweet, and loving girl.

Dallas, Welcome to Subieville!

    Dallas, TX, 2016 - 

    Dallas the dog carries with him the name of his hometown of Dallas TX, after having recently stole the heart of Prestige Subaru's Tony Pelle and relocated to Asheville, NC.

    Their concrete connection was made on a typical day at a Subaru dealer conference, complete with a full share of meetings, presentations, showcases, slideshows, small talk, and of course, dogs. The presence of a local Dallas, TX animal shelter, Operation Kindness, afforded Tony and Dallas (then unnamed puppy) the mere moment of face-time needed to forge a lifelong connection... It was instant. It was permanent. It was fate. Some say time slowed, others in the area reported sounds of a stringed ensemble softly accompanying the moment... we can't be too sure on this... however, what we do know, is that it was a moment meant to be. Dallas was adopted on the spot at the ripe age of 10 weeks old.

    Having had flown to Dallas TX for the conference, which was still underway, Tony made quick arrangements for a Dallas (puppy) pickup the following day via Subaru from Subieville. The plans were soon set for the two to rendezvous back in Asheville, NC no later than need be. >>>FWD>>> 1 Outback, 2 days, and 1,930 miles later, Dallas had made it back to Tony's arms, back where he will be, and be found, for many years to come. Welcome to Subieville Dallas!

December pet of the month is Deborah Caughron and Michael Follo, with Huck & Scout. Check out our next pet of the month submission. Photos & story courtesy of Deborah Caughron and Michael Follo, with Huck & Scout. A really cool setup for the pups to travel with them in luxury.

Michael Follo and Deb Caughron live in Bat Cave with their two dogs, Huck and Scout. Michael and Deb are both recently retired educators. Deb worked for over 30 years with Outward Bound and Michael was a college professor and high school teacher before spending the last 6 years as Director of Education at the North Carolina Outward Bound School.

Deb and Michael have always loved traveling with their dogs and, now that they are retired, they are thrilled to have more time for adventures, both near and far. They recently returned from a 5-week western road trip with Huck and Scout in their Subaru Outback outfitted with a custom back-seat dog bed that was the envy of every dog they met!  Michael and Debs new 2017 Outback is their fourth Subaru. They are especially excited about the new EyeSight technology that makes road trips even safer for them and their pups.

This is "Ru" (short for Subaru). Owned and loved by Lyn Lewis. She is now 5mos old. True to the Tortie mentality, she is full of mischief and non stop antics. She is always into something. We often wonder how one kitten could be so sweet and yet so naughty. Her mother was a stray, that wandered up to Tearesa Cartrett's house this past winter. Tearesa took her in and is now an member of her family.Tearesa, also works at Prestige Subaru. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Winston the Sheepdog is our August Pet of the Month and a new customer at Prestige Subaru. He convinced his parents, Lori and Tim, to bring their car in for service and to allow him to eat lots of treats, be royally spoiled by our staff, and try out the kayaks on display.
 
He is turning four years old this month and lives in Asheville. In his "spare" time (outside of eating, sleeping, and walking his owner, that is) he and Lori are a Pet Therapy team and volunteer at Mission Hospital's Rathbun House and at UNCA. He loves to meet new people and his favorite treat is carrots. Lori picked him out of the breeder's litter at 8 weeks old and he has been her furry child ever since. He is looking forward to his next visit at Prestige and is hoping the car needs service soon.

Meet Little Lucy, a Great Pyrenees & Black Lab mix (white & black color), cared for by our very own Matt Gregor. Lucy was the runt of the litter and the last one that nobody seemed to want. She was 7 weeks old when we began caring for her requiring medical care. Now at 14 weeks, she is all better and growing exponentially.


Little Lucy is helping fill the hole in the hearts of her sister pup Ethel and her Human family. Recently Ethel lost her twin brother, Fred, unexpectedly due to cancer. They both were 8.75 years old and have never been apart overnight since 7 weeks of age.


Little Lucy has helped to re-kindle the spark in Ethel's life bringing out puppy qualities in her older larger sister. Lucy plays with all her heart and doesn't realize she isn't the size of her big sister - yet. She loves to play with the cat as well, one of the 3 cats enjoy playing with her too.


A very sweet puppy that has helped mend the hearts of everyone around her, we are fortunate to have her in our lives.

Ben is the pride and joy of Paul and Cindy Bennett of Franklin NC. He is a four year old Scottie with a big personality and a curiosity to match. He started out his journey on a farm in Uxbridge Mass. and came to live with us in Connecticut. He smiles for cheese, and understands the word "handsome". If you meet him you will love him. He insists on it.

The family needed a change and in 2013 we moved to Franklin NC and we couldn't be happier. Long adventurous hikes and meeting barnyard animals is our favorite pass time. Going for rides in my new Forrester is his next favorite thing!. Our trips to Prestige are so pleasant and the staff welcomes him with lots of treats and attention. Life is very good for a Scottie living in the mountains!

Cared for by Prestige Clients Bill & Martha - Buster Brown, an 8yo Chocolate lab, has a truly excellent home & gives back even more.

Buster Brown is a registered therapy dog with a soft, warm touch that runs from his paws to a human's heart. His handler, Martha Server, witnesses it every week. She herself fell victim to it.

"I was teaching a fitness class at a gym near Fort Bragg and saw a picture of a cute puppy on the door and said that I wanted the dog," Server said. "I fell in love with a lovable puppy with blue eyes."

The puppy became a nationally certified therapy dog through Therapy Dogs International when he was 20 months old. Now a handsome 8-year-old chocolate Labrador retriever, Buster Brown started training when he was only a few  weeks old and continued to train intensely during the 12 months prior to certification.

"We purchased Buster Brown as a gift for a fallen military hero's family, but they couldn't take him at the time because of living circumstances. And after he lived with us, we weren't willing to let him go," Server said. "The family is still thrilled that his life has been devoted to serving veterans and children."

Every week for the past five years, Buster Brown, with Server in tow, visits the Community Living Center at the VA Medical Center in Asheville. The veterans at the center need care ranging from short-term rehabilitation to nursing and hospice care. Buster doesn't care what illnesses they suffer; he loves them unconditionally and accepts them as they are, expecting nothing more. He doesn't care if the veteran has lost hair to chemotherapy or his speech to a stroke. Buster Brown creates a unique bond with the patients that has a healing dimension.

And as a reward for his visits, Buster Brown gets a lot of love.

"Many of the veterans confined to wheelchairs push themselves to the canteen located in the basement of the hospital to purchase treats for him," Server said. "I always have treats to share with the veterans, but many insist on having their own goodies to give him. Buster Brown doesn't shy away from those who are about to pass (away). He may be the only therapy dog that has ever been allowed into the ICU (intensive care) unit at the VA hospital.

"At the request of patient Mike Poole, a Vietnam vet who was known as the unofficial mayor of the Black Mountain Dog Park, a nurse granted Buster Brown permission to visit him," Server said.

"Immediately Buster jumped up beside Mike to provide him with healing comfort. He barked once, and that alerted other patients that he was there, and they requested a visit. He provided comfort to family members and staff. Poole died on Valentine's Day in 2013 with Buster never missing an opportunity to visit with him weekly."

One special visit was with a marine who was suffering terminal brain cancer. Buster Brown jumped in bed with the marine and had a long visit. The next week when Buster returned, the marine had passed. Buster Brown attends some of the memorial services.

"It was sad but rewarding that Buster was the last dog the marine knew on this earth," Server said. "I think he knows how sick some of them are. Many of the patients at the VA hospital have no family members locally, and others have few visitors, making Buster's visits even more important."

Buster Brown also provides therapy for children at Black Mountain Primary and ArtSpace charter schools. He is especially fond of the reading programs.

"Students spend a lot of time reading to him and sharing their problems and feelings with him," Server said. "One young man said that his father had been taken to prison on the day Buster was visiting. The little boy always looked forward to hugging him and getting wet kisses in return. At the schools, Buster has a small rug that he sits on the entire time while the children read to him, which has lasted up to three hours. He has visited many different schools and has an active relationship with Black Mountain Primary and ArtSpace Charter School."

One student wrote, "Thank you for visiting us. Thank you Buster Brown for listening when we read. When you are not here, I imagine that I am reading to you."

Buster Brown also participated in developing the pilot program for veterans at Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College.

"One of Buster's most moving moments came during a visit to St. Joseph of the Pines Rehabilitation Center in Southern Pines," Server said. "This was the site of Buster's first therapy job. He approached a non-responsive woman in a wheelchair who had been in a coma for some time and no one had been able to reach her, not even the director's dog.

"Buster began to lick both of her cheeks, and she slowly smiled and opened her eyes for the first time since she had gone into a coma. People in the large rehabilitation room, including staff patients and family members, began clapping with tears in their eyes. During future visits, the woman's son and family members always approached Buster Brown and thanked him again for what they considered his miracle therapy."

Buster Brown became well-known at the dog park in Black Mountain and made friends with many of the homeless people who find shelter at First Baptist Church of Black Mountain in the winter. The dog is the international ambassador to the Montreat College men's soccer team and attends the games. The majority of the men playing on the team are from countries outside the U.S. and have never had a personal relationship with a dog. Buster Brown has participated in several Blessing of the Animals ceremonies ate various area churches as well as prayer walks at the Community of the Cross retreat center in Black Mountain.

Buster Brown has also been nominated by the Black Mountain Kiwanis Club twice as Volunteer of the Year.

"It gives me chills - good ones - to think of all the ways God has used Buster Brown," Server said. "Where he goes in the community, he reaches out to those who are experiencing personal problems such as illness, post-surgery, divorce and grief. Wherever my husband Bill and I go, Buster Brown goes. At home he is like all other dogs; he is our therapy dog, making us happy. If God can use a dog like Buster Brown, he can use any of us to love and serve our community."

Cared for by our very own Jenn Nance, Sales Specialist, these furry companions are lucky to have such a great home. The top photo is our Mona Mae. We call her our Blonde Baby. Out of our 3, Mona is our most skittish however, our snuggliest kitty. Mona came to our family while on a search for a friend for our Pico (the giant orange cat below). She was adopted about 2 years ago from the Humane Society, now happily residing in our home receiving lots of love from our 3 kiddos.

The lower left photo is Pico de Gallo. We call him many things but frequently just Pico. I have had Pico since he was a little bitty kitten. While on the search for a female cat about 2 years of age, this fluffer stole my heart with his loud purr and yearning for lovin' all the time. He's our most ornery of the bunch, often tripping us and causing chaos however, we love him dearly. I like to tell Pico that he is my best friend.

Lastly, lower right photo, we have Normyn. Normy is our stealth cat, always on the prowl and constantly begging to spend time outdoors. He's kind of the "cool kid" in the house, seldom speaking but loves to sneak a snuggle.

Here we have Tucker, at 1 1/2 years old, cared for by our very own Jason Wicks. We adopted Tucker in January 2014, after my kids saw him in the Humane Society adoption day. He has since taken over ownership of all sofas and beds in the house. He loves the garden for watching birds. Tucker likes a good belly scratch and believe it or not, a daily play wrestle match with a 60lb lab named Olive. He also likes to nibble toes when his owners are watching TV. We are blessed to have him as part of our family.

Here we have Champ, cared for by our very own Scott Wilbanks. He was a rescue from Animal Compassion Network which is now Asheville Humane Society. He is a jet black Newfoundland mixed with Wired Hair Retriever. We had a pet adoption here at Prestige on a Saturday before Christmas 2012. He all but stole the show with his full of life & energetic personality. There was discussion about what to do with Champ amongst ACN staff that I overheard. The foster family that had Champ were going out of town, hmmm.... this was an opportunity as long as he was house broken! He can stay with us for the weekend. When I called to tell my family the good news that we are fostering him for the weekend, the normal 10 minute commute to the dealership was a quick 5 minutes. That evening when I got home there were all these new dog toys everywhere. The weekend quickly passed and everyone was pitching in taking Champ on walks, etc. Monday morning as I was taking the girls to school & putting Champ in the car I looked up - in the window I could see my wife w/ tears in her eyes in addition to the girls not wanting to see him go.


We surprised the kids for Christmas. We had a new member to the family and all of us were so excited! We have defiantly had some training to do with him, including a dog whisperer. He is a hunter, gatherer, with a little alpha built-in. We have no problems with moles, possums, squirrels, etc on our property. He thinks that when family and friends come over they are there to see him! He enjoys outside, running & riding in the car. At the beach he chases the birds and you never see him run so fast but the birds always get away. He enjoys the water anytime of the year but is hesitant to go swimming. He turned 4 in April, with a birthday celebration getting doggie ice cream. He is one of a kind & we love having him as part of our family!!

He is super playful, outgoing, and wild as a buck. He is a big old BABY that loves to be treated like one. Also P.G is a 007 agent being that he and the kids work together....

He is sneaky & we feel he is my kids secret weapon when they have to eat all there food. Somehow it all just disappears and my boy P.G turns into a magician then vanishes. I love that dog, a great dog that takes care of us as much as we take care of him.

Meet Rusko Riffe - Cared for by our very own Griffin Riffe. This sweet boy was adopted just a few weeks ago from Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, and quickly found a place in our hearts (and on our couch). Rusko is a 3month old PitBull/Border Collie with a Big personality and an even bigger heart. Rusko loves play with his friends Leia & Hendrix,  go on adventures to the park, and get spoiled by his mom & dad. He also loves to come see his daddy at work and get treats from all the nice people at Prestige Subaru. You'd be hard-pressed to find a puppy as sweet as this little baby.

Here we have King Louis,  Stretchy Louis, or Zoom Louis as he is called depending on his mood. Cared for by our very own Matt Gregor, Louis was 1 year old when he came to us. He is now two and a half years old, a tabby mix of some sort with huge paws n claws that came to us abandoned in the woods seeking out shelter.

He is a remarkably effective hunter yet inquisitive, gentle, affectionate and playful all while getting along with his brother/sister-pup Fred & Ethel.  He made himself right at home like he owns the place and the two pups have accepted him as one of their own. Often times he is found sleeping on or under one of his giant furry protectors. He also has two older cats to share the space with but they prefer to keep a slight distance when he wants to play.

A kind and gentle cat, that nobody else wanted, that we are fortunate to have in our lives.

This is TaTonka, cared for by our very own John Troxler. He is an English Chocolate Labrador given to my wife Christie and I by her folks in Jersey several years ago. He was around 2 years old at that time and over the past 10 years has become the most awesome canine companion anyone could ever hope to have. Straight up and across the board!


'Tonka' has survived two other pooches we had and is still going strong hanging with our son's two year old pupdog 'Batman'. As strong as he is though, he has of late resorted to sunbathing as a favorite activity -or lack thereof. But I can't say that I blame him. There is a warm, seasoned, 'old-dog' contentment that radiates from that rich, bronze coat of his when he's soakin' up those rays, that I can't help but envy; the contentment more than the fur.


But you know, it's been said that "there are some simple truths, and dogs know what they are." Looking at 'Tonka' laying there in the sun, eyes closed, feet twitching, I don't doubt that for a second. Thanks Tonk, for a lifetime of friendship that wanes not.

This is Cat, a 13 year old Hanoverian horse cared for my our very own Ryan Brown - Business Manager. His wife Alex rides dressage and the following is a writing by their daughter - Zoe Brown.


The first time I saw her, I gaze in her kind, dark eyes. Her coat shines her dark color. Her soft breath, calm and steady brushes up against my face. Cat is her name. I turn to see her rider walking up to Cat. They gaze at each other, reading each others body language - they can read each others minds. In one swift move the rider climbs on top of her back. Together they are picture perfect. I follow my mom and Cat, I watch them enter the arena. They ride around the outside of the dressage arena. They ride perfectly together. My mom, strong and confident, looking like the queen of England. Cat listens carefully to mom, making smooth and elegant moves. Cat has fire in her eyes and thunder in her hooves.


The bell rings and they enter the dressage arena. They start their dance, mom confidentially leads Cat thru every step of their dance and Cat follows every silent cue. They move in a blur, they are ghosts in the arena dancing their hearts out. They float across the ground it seems like Cat has grown wings. My mom seems the happiest on Cat's strong, powerful back. Mom can feel every muscle and every breath taken, she can even read Cat's mind. Their dance ends and they leave the arena. Mom jumps off her back and gazes into her eyes for a few seconds then goes back to work again.

Meet Samantha (Sammy as she is known at Prestige.) This adorable little dachshund mix was a rescue. She is frequently at Prestige visiting with her family and her big soulful eyes assure that she gets plenty of treats when she turns on the "sad face." Sammy has the typical "wiener dog" bursts of energy and personality but then loves to curl up on her mom's desk for a long nap afterwards. The Prestige family loves this little girl!

Piglet (left) was a rescue I (Ember Latrella - Internet Sales Manager)  just happened to come across on Facebook 2 years ago. I'm sure you can see where the name Piglet came from with those huge ears and her curly tail.  She was in a high kill shelter in Alabama. She had been pickup from a vacant lot where she traveled back and forth through for weeks, and once in the shelter had a kill date that was coming up in a few days.   I had commented on how cute she was and that I would love to have her but had no way of picking her up.  A few really nice people the lived close by the shelter in Alabama saw my comment and offered to pick her up from the shelter and " puppy train " her to me in Atlanta.  So off we went , my mother my son and I  she was as sweet as could be she slept on  my moms lap all the way back to Asheville. Once we got her home and settled I took her to the vet for a check up , come to find out she had heartworms.  So we started treatment over a course of 2 months and had her re-tested 6 months later and she is now heartworm free.  She loves to cuddle,  sit on your lap, give kisses and sleep under the blankets in the bed with you.  She is one of the best dogs we have owned and I'm so happy that she found us !


Murphy (right) had also been a stray that one of my bosses had found behind his restaurant in Fairview.  Since she looked part beagle he assumed he could use her to hunt. Turns out she wasn't a very good hunting dog.  So he put her in a dog kennel with his other hunting beagles, One afternoon I had went up there to feed them since he was out of town, and that was when I saw Murphy ! She was so sweet, tail wagging so fast you would almost think she could fly away with it ! I had asked my boss as soon as I seen him if he would let me have her , of course he agreed he said she wasn't much of a hunting dog any way.  She had become my best friend.  She went hiking with me almost every day before work and would kiss my bye every time I had to leave her.  She just fit right in with us.  I named her after Murphy NC , which had been one of my favorite places to take a long weekend to and go four-wheeling and camping.  I have had her for about 9 years now and she has made everyday a little happier with her presence !

Bosco is just like he looks, he's curious, loves everybody and makes everybody feel loved. He is named after his silky black fur that looks like a deep chocolate color. He is our 2nd Shih Tzu, the first one (Nikki) was a gift for Dianne from Joe.


We were lucky to have Nikki for over 15 years and she wanted little to do with Dianne. Dianne got Bosco for Joe and now Bosco has very little to do with Joe & spends all his time with Dianne.


Bosco has a sweet nature and knows how to make anyone feel loved. We are very blessed to have Bosco and his BIG sister Gracie (right).

Meet Blitz (left), Rocco (center) & Diezel (right). Diezel, an 11 year old Lab truly lives the life of a dog spending most of his time laid out in the sun or in the cold winter months by the fireside. Rocco, a 7 year old Lab mix, boasts a strong, yet loving personality keeping a constant eye on his family and their surroundings, and is always up for an adventure. Blitz, 8 months old, is the newest member of the Pelle pack, and despite his youth his even-keel temperament and attentive nature are unrivaled. Already a fantastic companion, the sky is the limit for this keen and loyal pup

Fred (left) & Ethel (right) - Two mixed breed Colley-Shepherds, cared for by our very own Matt Gregor, that were found abandoned on the road at 7 weeks old. They have been a part of our daily lives ever since. They are like surrogate parents to 3 cats and are truly gentle giants. At 6 1/2 years old in the photo, now going on 8 years they have never been apart since they were found.
