Bess is a pretty amazing girl with an interesting story. The shelter called and said they have an old, fat dog who needs *hospice* care. I asked what that meant. She didn’t have any specified disease, she just was lethargic and not moving around very well. Of course I said yes. I don’t see *older and weightier* as a death sentence.

She came prancing into the yard ready to do pole dancing. Her tail was up and wagging. She was pretty shaggy and a big girl to be sure. Took her to the spa and she came back gorgeous. Took her to the vet who did a very thorough exam and said, she is actually in good health. The shelter said she is ten, but we think she is younger. Joints are a little creaky but we suspect that is from lying around. And she is getting more active evry day.

She LOVES going walking, loves being in a home. I posted a video of her learning to play with the other dogs. It made me cry. This is actually why I do rescue. She watched and watched and then said, *me, I can do that!*

She is losing weight, her legs are getting stronger, and she a darling.

Write me if you are interested.


Buddy Ben is an eight year old big red boy who is knock dead gorgeous. He is very affectionate, and really loves people. He is house trained, crate trained and a really good boy. He doesn’t do anything naughty. He was raised in a family who had to give him up because their circumstances changed and they could not afford a big dog.

He likes the other dogs and is an all around champ.

Nathan was being held at the shelter in the garage because he was in such bad condition. He was classified as a *hospice* dog and was basically on the *kill* list. Nathan is also blind. Tootsie’s Vision pulled him and agreed to a collaboration with us. Their financial support made it possible for Nathan to get the Vet care that made him well.


Six weeks later, we have a MIRACLE dog.


He had dental surgery and had 8 teeth pulled. He had 3 abscessed teeth.I cannot imagine the pain he was in. His skin is all healed. His coat is growing back in and is shining. We had company today and he was smiling and laughing with all the attention. He has mapped the entire house and yard, can hear the dinner dishes being placed on the countered from 4 rooms away and is one happy camper. He is housebroken, has had all his shots and is chipped.

You know I don’t usually do the drama *before* thing, but this is the best of rescue. Nathan is a FABULOUS dog. He is funny, loving, affectionate, cooperative. He loves to walk on a leash, he likes other dogs and LOVES people. He is one beautiful dog. If you would like to share your home with a loving boy who will fill you with gratitude and joy, let’s talk.

Marlee marley4397marley4396Marlee really, really needs a volunteer to come and run or walk with her. We have a couple of special needs dogs and her energy is higher than what they can cope with.  Can you help us out while she is waiting for her person?

She is not a Golden, but she has a story 🙂 Marlee is a 3 year old Queensland Heeler. She belonged to a friend of mine who died a couple of months ago. His family couldn’t take her, so I agreed I would take her and find her a home.

She is a very loving dog, very. She is very high energy. She will do really well in a family who runs, hikes or does both. She is very, very smart. She does not bark, but she is a great alert dog because she takes care of her people. She loves people and most dogs, although if she meets another bossy female, she can have something to say.

She is spayed, housebroken, is chipped, has all her shots and such.

One ear is flopped in the second pictures because it got injured in a rough and tumble play time. She had to have a little drain put in her ear and she has been carrying flopped since then.

She is a great pup. Talk to me if you would like a loving, loyal companion.
