Rescue Recap- w/e 12/19/10

Posted: December 19th, 2010

And now, a very important message from all of the beautiful babies in our care that are looking for their furver homes:

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays Everyone!

Still waiting:

Hi! My name is Jackson and I am a sweet boy from the Deep South! I can’t hear you but that does not stop me from giving out the hugs and kisses. I am getting used to the simple things in life like a warm bed, regular food, and people who care about me and boy is life good!  I love going on walks and do very good on a leash. I am the favorite at the bus stop in the mornings (all the kids love me and I love them) and like saying hi to all the dogs in the ‘hood. I am housebroken, quiet and when my foster leaves I curl up in a little ball until someone comes home to wake me. I am still not sure about things like doorways and ceilings (I spent a lot of time on my own outside) but I am such a good sport about them.  I love to be snuggled and will happily give out a kiss to whoever wants one.  Check out my pics! I’m in MD.

ps- Poor guy was 25 lbs. under weight, had hook worms, round worms, Lymes, Heartworms, ear infection and is deaf. We now fixed all that we can and he is a love! Housebroken, cuddley, walks great on a leash and loves car rides.

HI! I’m Piper and trust me, I am as cute in real life as I look in these pictures. I am super happy, fun, love my tennis balls & rides in the truck, and most of all I love my people and my doggie buddies. Cuddling up is my favorite past time. I play nice with kids and other big dogs but, not so good with cats (they’re really fun to chase though). My foster family said my obedience is coming along nicely and I am working hard at being a good girl. I guess I won’t get away with my good looks all my life so I better shape it up. It’s kind of hard since I have had such a rough time so far. I know sit, wait, and come and we are working hard on my kennel training. I am still a bit of a work in progress but I am soooo worth it, after all I’m still a puppy. I’m very thankful for lots of love, good food, and tons of belly rubs and even though I’m tan and white, I promise you I am true blue! I’m currently in FL.

Love.  One of the most powerful words in the English language.  Love has the ability to change all things, to offer hope where there has been none.  Sweet Jayden is looking for that kind of love.
Jayden came to rescue bearing the scars of being neglected and crated far too long every day.  While in foster care Jayden has learned what it means to be a loved member of a family.   Because Jayden was so neglected in her past, she needs a family that is home more often than not as Jayden loves the company of people. Jayden’s dream home would have a stay-at-home parent, a parent who works from home, or is retired. Someone who works only a few hours outside the home might also be a possibility. Jayden is currently in PA.

Jayden is thoroughly enjoying the foster Dane that she’s with now. We would love to see the two of them adopted together.

Bullet is a quiet, gentle one year old who is looking for a family where he can enjoy a low level of activity while he recovers from heartworm treatment.. Bullet is great in the car and good on a leash. He loves to give kisses and have his ears rubbed! His tail is always wagging! Bullet is currently in MD.

Twinkle, Chully Pepper’s mom, is our little star. She is just a LOVER!! She loves to hop up onto your lap and give LOTS of kisses!! Definitely house trained. NO accidents in the house! She loves to run and play outside. Twinkles is still working on some basic commands like sit but is crate trained and even goes in there all by herself. She’s a GREAT dog! Ready to go to her furever home!! Twinkle is in FL.

12/19/10- Her foster mom writes: I found another Twinkle-ism. If you scratch her just right at the base of her spine, she’ll reward you by nibbling on your nose!

It’s me Darla! Here’s what my foster mom wrote about me:
This is an awesome firecracker of a little girl. Muscle bound and truly beautiful she just LOVES life and all it has to offer. 110% house broken and crate trained.  You just couldn’t ask for a better dog! She is one of the happiest and most loving fosters I have ever had.  She loves to cuddle and will literally dive into your arms making you crack up. We don’t know much about Darla’s past besides she was an obvious breeder used to excess then tossed aside when they where done with her. But she truly is a blessing to be had.  She is smart as a whip and has learned some wicked tricks like how to open doors and if sitting doesn’t get me a cookie, I will hug your waist looking up at you with big sweet eyes until you give in.  And if you look at me long enough (because I’m really quiet while I’m in my kennel) I sing.  You will laugh (music to my ears) and let me out for cuddles!!! All I can say is whoever is smart enough to adopt this baby is going to be one lucky son of a gun with years of laughter and love to fill their home!I wouldn’t really recommend cats (it is doable but slightly annoying) or kids under 5 (as she will happily knock them down and kiss them way too much lol. Darla is in FL.

Mr. Magoo, you’ve done it again!!  Magoo’s name has been shortened to just Goof.  He keeps us laughing all the time, whether he is finding new places to sleep, playing with his foster sister or barking (he sounds like he’s underwater when he barks).  He loves to play but he also loves his naps.  Magoo will curl up just about anywhere and sleep.  He doesn’t need the crate at night, but sometimes we find him curled up in a ball in there anyway.  He is completely house trained and you have to wake him up many mornings to go out.  He is doing well (or rather I’m doing well) with his hand signals. Magoo is deaf so he will need a home with a fenced in yard.  He would also do best with another “hearing” dog to follow.  He loves to go to the dog park and plays well with everyone.  As you can see from the pictures, it was a little muddy.  He had a bath when we got home and LOVED it!  He’s always trying to get into the shower with me anyway as he loves to lick the water.  Magoo would do best in a family with older children as sometimes he thinks he’s still a puppy and would be too rough for little ones.  Please open your home and your hearts to this goofy boy, he won’t let you down!

Magoo’s web page and photo album

ps- My foster mom calls ME goofy, she should talk! Check out her Magoodilocks tale. I also have my very own photo album over at Animal Rescue Flights. There’s some really cool photos of me and my pilots. I know, I know…. nobody likes the muzzle part but I made everybody late (2 hours on the 2nd leg of my trip because I chewed through my harness and the pilot had to go to the pet store to get me another one!). I didn’t really mind it, it wasn’t for long. What an awesome trip that was.

It’s me, Lydia! As you all know, I have been in boarding FOREVER it seems. Well, today things just got a whole lot better for me. I’m finally in a foster home. Yeah!!!!! My new foster mom is going to send some pictures of me this weekend. I’m currently in FL.

ps- that’s a picture of me getting all cleaned up before my new foster mom came to pick me up.

It’s me, Roscoe! I was listed as an urgent courtesy post because my time was up at the shelter. Whew, that was close. I’m at a foster home now in MD. Here’s what my foster mom wrote about me:

He is sooooooooooo sweet! He was great on the long car ride and has enjoyed many walks around my property on his leash. He sits, gives you his paw, and will lay down on command! What a good boy!

Are you looking for some fun in your life ? Well have we got the guy for you ! This is Angus. He is an almost 2 year old pittie boy who is full of good times. He is a big beautiful boy…weighing in at approximately 80 pounds. He is GREAT with every person that he meets even kids. However, he will not be placed with any very young children because he doesn’t know his own strength and may knock them over! Angus gets along with some medium to large size dogs but he doesn’t seem to like small dogs and he definitely doesn’t like kitty cats. We are looking for an experienced bully breed home where Angus can be an only dog so he can be the “King of the Castle ” and hog up all the attention . Angus knows most of his basic commands….sit,down,stay…and he is fully crate and house trained. Angus is currently in PA. View his photo album.

Mojo here and I’m doing awesome with my foster family.  I get along great with the old grumpy fat cat and my sister Pumkin Head.  My foster mommy just loves me and tells me how good I’m doing.  For a little puppy that had a really crummy life….I hit the jack pot with ABR and my wonderful foster family.  I like the picture with my halo on as I’m such an ANGEL but mommy had to put the Devil costume on me too.  I’m glad SHE thinks it’s funny.  Ha ha ha mommy. I’m living in Louisiana now
ps- Down here in our local New Orleans culture, it is believed that those born with two different color eyes are imparted with the spirit of wisdom and love. That’s why I’m called Mojo!

Hello, my name is Layla! I’m currently in MD. Here is a little more about me:

Layla is 2.5 years old, very well behaved, housebroken, knows sit, stay, come and lie down. She was taken to an animal shelter in Delaware when her family could no longer care for her. A volunteer at the shelter was so charmed by Layla that she drove several hundred miles to get her to our rescue. Layla did well on her temperament tests. She would prefer to be the only dog in the family and ignored the cats at the vet hospital.

Goliath is a good boy who just had bad luck. He came from GA and if he had a family, they just didn’t take care of him. Skinny and Heartworm positive, he is now getting the care he needs. Goliath is good with other dogs and great in the car. He is loved by everyone who meets him because his southern charm shines. He could really use a family who will appreciate his charming personality.  He is in the beginning stages of his heartworm treatment and could use a foster family to help him through it. He is currently in PA.

Hello friends! It’s me Sumo. You’re probably thinking I was named after a sumo wrestler, but I’m really just an exceptionally good natured, low key and easy going guy. I really like going for walks and riding in the car, but I LOVE people and getting loved on! I make new friends wherever I go. I also like experiencing new things. See, I spent the first part of my life tied to my doghouse in the mountains of Virginia. Now I’m loving freedom and ready to go home with you so you can keep fueling my curiosity for learning and seeing new things! I’m crate trained and I rarely bark, but I would prefer a house where I can be the only dog so I can hog all of the attention (hey, I’ve got a lot of making up to do!)

Sumo has been in a foster home for what seems like forever. Won’t you please consider opening your heart and home to this beautiful boy? He is currently in MD. Sumo’s Photo Album

I’m such a nice guy! My skin is not as itchy and I’m actually starting to grow some hair. I hear it’s going to take a lot more time but they feed me lots of good stuff, I get a lot of baths and get stuck with needles twice a week to build my immune system. I really want everyone to love me. Yesterday I was outback with Jodi, she was doing something and 3 little chicks came up to see me. Maybe I was tired from my neuter but I really didn’t even care about those 3 little chicks. All I really care about is people looking at me and telling me I am doing better. I want to be touched by people all the time, it feels so so good. No one ever touched me before when my skin was real yucky.
pa- I’m in PA. That’s a new photo of me. I’m looking really pretty aren’t I?

Hello there, my name is Pinkie! I’m currently in PA. Here’s what my foster mom just wrote about me- 

Pinkie is such a joy to be around!!  We call her sneaky Pinky because she is so quiet- We don’t even know she is in the room until we turn around and see her big pretty eyes starring at us.  Her fur is really coming in now, she looks so good!  She loves her foster brother and playing/cuddling/bathing him.  She has such a nurturing spirit.  She likes to sit where ever you are and she sleeps in her crate.  She will wait patiently for us to wake up before letting her out.  She does not chew on anything that is not hers. She listens very well and will make an exceptional pet for someone!!!

Hey everyone! It’s Merle checking in. I’m doing really good. I’m still working on my heartworm treatment but things are going pretty good for me.  My foster mom Tracey loves me really loves me and she tells everyone all day long! She writes people notes about “whoever adopts him is really lucky” Also, my foster sister Loopie is really patient with me, she waits for me and shows me around…she is like my seeing eye dog! I’m still looking for my furever home! I’m in PA.

Hello, my name is Cannoli.OK, I’m not Italian, but you must admit that I’m as cute as the yummy Italian dessert. I just arrived from Georgia, where I was struggling just to make ends meet. I know it’s hard to look at my “before” pics, but, trust me, I’ve put on some pounds since these were taken. I’m just a year old and really, really sweet and gentle. I have heartworms and am being treated now. I’m looking for a nice, quiet home where I can relax for a few months until I’m back to my old self. I’m currently in MD.

Hello to everyone!  My name is Alfonso,I am a French Bulldog / Boston Terrier mix and I arrived in PA via animal rescue flights! Thank you Jack the pilot. I was a stray in South Carolina, and ABR rescued me. I am approximately two to three years old, but life has been very difficult for my short life thus far. The vet told Jodi that I have stage 2 Heartworm with an enlarged heart, Erlichia (a tickborne disease), high blood pressure, and blood and protein in my urine. On a brighter note my foster parents say how loving and adorable I am. I get along with the other dogs in the house, and they seem to like me too! Life is great now that I am being cared for. Unfortunately it is VERY EXPENSIVE to have me get 100% well. Please won’t you help. I would be eternally grateful! Every dollar counts! Thank you, Alfonso 

ps- Be sure to check out my photo album! They added some new pictures of me hanging out with my foster brother, Finn (formerly known as Stinky 1)

Sugar is just the sweetest, most easy-going dogs I have come across in rescue/foster. She LOVES to go riding in a car.  In fact, if you just head toward your vehicle, she will run that direction, too, and wait for you to open the door so she can jump in.  No car sickness, either.  She is very polite, and is food motivated. Sugar is learning commands (sit) and will offer a paw to for you to kiss, er, shake. Sugar is currently going through her heartworm treatment. She is in PA.

High Five everyone! My name is Ruger and here’s a little more about me-

Sweet Ruger arrived at boarding last night from a kill shelter in Orlando, FL that his owners surrendered him to be put to sleep. He was past his euth. time and the staff convinced the shelter to hold him a little longer in hopes he’d be rescued. Ruger is a big teddy bear at 120 lbs. but will be an even bigger teddy bear when he reaches his full weight of 130-135 lbs.  He’s very underweight and will be scheduled for bilateral entropian surgery as soon as he can get into a foster home. He is in FL.

We’ve added lots of new photos of Ruger hanging out at Louise’s (Sunkiva Kennels)

I’m Veronica.  I was found roaming the streets of North Philadelphia.  My foster mom thinks I lived in a house before ending up on the streets because I am 100% house trained and crate trained, although I am afraid to come out of my crate on my own, I wait for someone to lead me out.  I didn’t have the best life before coming to American Bulldog Rescue.  I was used for breeding.  My rescuers think I was mistreated because I am so nervous around new people.  I get really scared when I see hands coming at me or when someone’s feet are too close to me or when someone raises their voice.  I don’t get aggressive at all, I just drop to the ground and shake.  I am also terrified of brooms and anything else that resembles a stick.  I have made a  lot of progress since I have been in my foster home and I am very attached to my foster mom.    I like the other dogs that live here too.  One of the older female dogs doesn’t like me at all.  When I go near her she snaps at me and I get so scared I drop to the ground and stay there until someone comes and gets me.  I’m really good on a leash and I love to go for walks but, my favorite thing in the whole world is to sit on the couch with someone and be petted.  Everyone says I am a really nice dog and I will be a great companion for someone.  I’m in PA.

Hey everyone! It’s me Priscilla. I bet you didn’t even recognize me. Remember that awful picture of me when my eyes were so bad?  My foster mom was so upset that she couldn’t do anything to help me with my eyes, except for drops, until my mange cleared up. Well I had my surgery. Don’t I look beautiful?????? I’m all fixed up now and ready for my furever home. I’m in PA right now. Here’s what my foster mom wrote about me:

Sweet Priscilla.  She is only 8 months old and was found virtually blind.  Her eye lids turned under and she wouldn’t open her eyes since it hurt her so much.  She has since had surgery and can see, a whole new world opened up for her and she’s like a BABY.  She loves to play and always has a sqeaky toy in her mouth.  She’s very frightened of new things and people but will warm up after a time.  She needs lots of socialization but she’s a joy to watch and be with once you’ve become her friend.  It looks like she had cosmetic surgery (eye liner)but that’s the stitch’s which will come out in another week.  Once she gets to be your friend, she bonds strongly and will love you forever, she also loves to go for car rides.

Michelina was brought to a shelter as a stray. Michelina is friendly towards other dogs. She is now in a great foster home with 2 other dogs. She is doing great with both of them!  Her evaluation from the shelter states that she is nice, nice, nice! Super sweet, gentle and calm. This girl likes to run. She’ll run straight at you at full speed and not run into you. Friendly towards other dogs. Tolerant of all kinds of touch. You can do anything to her and get no reaction. This gorgeous girl is unflappable! Please consider taking this sweet girl into your home! She is currently in MD.

Hey there, My name is Rascal Jenkins! My family lost their home and had to move to a place that wouldn’t allow me to go with them. Here’s what Jodi writes about me-

HYSTERICAL! Is the only word to describe this happy-go-lucky character…he is like a kid in a puppy suit. He walks up to everyone he meets and flops down into a frog position, plays nicely with other dogs, is completely house trained and great in the car.  Rascal is 15 months old and was turned into rescue because his mom had lost her home and had to move into an apartment that did not allow animals. He is great in the house but fun and energetic outside. His ears go up when you talk to him! Rascal is in PA.

ps- webprincess told Jodi to tell me that I have the cutest ears she has EVER seen. I have no idea what she means by that.

My name is Chop. I am a handsome, large 2 1/2 year old, neutered male American Bulldog. I grew up in a home with children and a male Boxer. I really miss having a family. I am a big goof and I love everybody that I meet. I lived with cats and kids ages 1 through 10…I love kids!!! I was never really taught how to walk on a leash and I have been told that I need work with that. You see, I just love to explore and sometimes I forget there is a human at the other end of my leash. I am housebroken and I was also crate trained at my old home. I do know how to sit, speak give paw and they are now teaching me down and how to walk on a leash. I would love to have a new home and a family that understands me and loves me for who I am. I have a lot of love to give and I am hoping somebody out there is looking for sweet guy like me. I’m in PA.

Hello, my name is Flower (also affectionately known as Flower Power)!

Flower is a sweet and affectionate 3-5 year old English bulldog mix [she seems younger, but her papers say 3-5].  She loves to snuggle, be petted and give lots of kisses.  The shelter staff said she’s picky with her doggie friends, but she is fine with the two resident foster dogs she is living with and appears to enjoy the company of other dogs. She has a high prey drive, though, and shouldn’t live with cats. [Info about cats from shelter] So far, Flower appears housebroken, as she hasn’t had any accidents in her foster home.  She also doesn’t mind her crate and doesn’t whine or bark at all when she’s in it.  Flower knows sit and is pretty good about coming when called, although she does needs to work on her leash work and not jumping out of excitement when you first come into the house.  She is otherwise fairly mellow in the house, content to be by your side. Flower is in PA.

Sheba is so sweet and just wants love. She is very submissive. You cannot tell by this photo but she is skin and bones, can see every bone in her body. She came in as a stray and thank God she got away from wherever she was, just sickening. She needs lots of TLC.  She will make someone a great dog.  She is a snuggler and wants to be around you all the time. She is a true rescue dog and you know how they need to be around you all the time. She’s eager to please and listens really well. She will sit when you tell her and appears to be house trained. She is about 7 years old, great with kids and other dogs. Sheba is in FL.

New Arrivals:

The Sky is the limit with the love I have to give! I was living on the streets of Texas with my three new born puppies when I was taken to a shelter. I was doing the best I could to provide for my three little ones while suffering from heartworms myself. The shelter staff was wonderful and gave us a safe place to sleep and food to eat. Unfortunately, help came too late for my little boy and we lost him. Now it’s the girls, Sadi, Sunni and I. A big thanks to Sam, Shelley, Vinnie, Ashley, Eileen, Tammy, Courtney, Lynn and a few others who helped us get from Texas to Maryland so we can begin searching for forever homes. I know my girls will find families quickly, puppies always do. I’m really hoping that someone will consider me, too. I’m only a year old and feeling much better. I gained a lot of weight at the shelter in Texas and the nice doctor in Maryland took care of my heartworms. I will need a nice, relaxed lifestyle for the next 4 months, then I will be as good as new! I LOVE people, car rides, watching rodeos (I hope my new family has cable TV), the company of other dogs, and I walk nicely on a leash

Hi, I’m Deevie! I had a home, but I was crated all the time. My dad decided to abandon me at his old girlfriend’s house. I’m pretty scared and I don’t understand what is going on. I would love for someone to come and give me a loving new home. I’m a quiet girl who loves to be petted and cuddled. I lived with small dogs and I relate well to children. The girls at the vet’s office hated to see me leave, they told me I was special. I’m at the boarding kennel now, my third new place in three weeks. I’m trying to be brave, but it’s chilly here and the dog next to me never stops barking. Please come and meet me, it’s worth the trip. I ride nicely in the car and walk well on a leash. I’m housebroken, too!  I’m in MD.

Mugsy is a sweet girl who has been running stray for over a year.  Her only companions have been a stray beagle and an 82 year-old widow who has been putting food out for both dogs. Mugsy is very timid and fearful of people and no one could ever get close enough to catch her.  A “neighbor” was going to shoot Mugsy.  With the efforts of five people and after a couple hours of work, Mugsy let her guard down just long enough for someone to get a slip a lead over her head.  She was terrified and shaking like a leaf.  Mugsy was then relocated to her foster home. Two days later, a vet came out to examine and vaccinate Mugsy.  The vet determined she was no more than two years old and she weighs 73lbs. She has been spayed and she tested positive for heartworms.  We began heartworm treatment on 10/27.  She will spend the next 4-6 weeks in recovery.  Mugsy is very shy and everyone agrees she must have been abused.  She is not a hyper dog.  She does not jump or bark.  She is afraid of strangers, especially men.  She cowers if you approach her while holding objects in your hands. She has never displayed any aggression toward us,our dogs or our cat. When you look into her eyes you can just tell she wants to be loved.  Mugsy needs an experienced dog home where she can learn what being a spoiled dog is all about. She is in Madison, TN. If you would like to adopt Mugsy, please complete an ABR application.

Hi, I’m Cisco! I’m currently living with my family (in MD), but my daddy works 12 hour days and just doesn’t have time for me anymore. I spend more of the day crated. This is no life for a great guy like me! I’m very friendly and affectionate! I’m hyper and strong, but I just started obedience training. I’m super smart and eager to learn, so I’m sure I’ll graduate at the top of my class! Since I’m kind of a wild guy right now, it would be better if I didn’t live with any small kids. I might accidentally knock them over, and I wouldn’t want to do that! So, if you’re in the market for a sweet and fun guy, please give me a shot! If you would like to meet Cisco, please call Kim at 443-386-6170 and fill out the ABR application.

MISS PIGGY is a super duper dog. She is 7 years old, spayed, up to date on her shots, lived with kids, and seems to be afraid of cats. She’s probably never seen a cat in her life but what a sweetheart, very laid back and housebroken. Please email for an application

URGENT- Sierra & Simba

This is an urgent courtesy posting for the Stafford SPCA in Virginia. They  are under the gun to find a home for this brother/sister pair of American Bulldogs, who’s mom not only lost her husband recently, but has now lost her job and has to move immediately. Here’s a little about the pair!

Urgent- Zack & Dolly

Zack and Dollie were owner surrendered to our shelter about 2 months ago. Their owners had gotten divorced and the husband was having to sell their home. In the meantime, a stray dog came into Zack and Dollie’s yard and garage uninvited. They are trained to an electric fence and chased the little dog back off, but it cause a big disturbance in the neighbor “fear of children being attacked” so to keep the peace, they were surrendered to the shelter. They were adopted shortly afterward by a gentleman and his daughter. Zack and Dollie both love kids, but soon after he was laid off and can no longer keep these two. Instead of sending them back to the shelter we have been working trying to find an American Bulldog Rescue to help with them. They are about 3 and 4 years old, Zack being the younger. They were purchased from a breeder in Richmond, Kentucky. Chance, the famous Movie star dog, is Zack’s great grandpa. The only thing these two have ever been guilty of is protecting their territory from a smaller dog. They are currently in Louisville, KY. Please contact Delsie at

This handsome gent is Ollie. What a doll this guy is. An adult pure breed roughly 6-7 years old and 128 pounds. He originally came to the American Bulldog Rescue about 3 years ago when he was found roaming the streets in Georgia. A bit battered and confused Ollie was hoping for a forever home. He was adopted by a loving family with a stay at home mother who showered him with lots of love. Unfortunately, like many, his home has been hit hard by the recession. Money is short and Mom now has to work. Ollie is very depressed over this. He misses taking walks, going on play dates in the park and spending quality time with the family. Dad tried taking him to work with him during the day but Ollie is afraid of the loud noices on the construction site. Although, Ollie is safe and cared for, he deserves more. He would reallllly like to have a home where Mom or Dad either didn’t work or worked from home. He doesn’t require tons of attention but doesn’t like to be alone for long periods of time. Ollie is good with most dogs but like lots of the bullies wants to be the leader of the pack. He currently resides in a home without cats but seems to be fine with them. Walks well on lead and off lead for that matter. In the three years he has been with his family, has not once had an accident in the house. Is good with strangers although because of his size he is a bit intimidating. He listens extremely well and is a big goofy couch potato. He is super smart and communicates well. If he wants or needs something he will let you know that is for sure. Best suited in a home with older children (8 and over) as lil tots make him nervous. He does like to play rough, tug of war and wrestling with his Dad on the floor seem to be his favorite. No health issues other than being a little overweight due to not being exercised properly lately. He is an indoor dog, wants to go out do his business and come back in. Doesn’t really like being outside for long periods of time. Loves to go for rides in the car. Ollie has lots of love to give. He needs a forever home. Meet him once and you’ll be in love forever! Ollie is in NJ. If you are interested in him, please complete an ABR adoption application.
Miss Lucy needs a special forever home. Lucy is an amazingly sweet girl who needs to stay on a special diet. Canine CD for struvite disease. Lucy produces crystals  if she does not. She is also on some inexpensive medications to control this. She will turn 6 on January 6th. and currently lives with a 6 year old child, and a chihuahua. She also has a few “bulldog allergies: Histamine, Quack grass, Marsh elder, Nettle, Rye perrennial, Timothy, Willow black, Wool, Lamb, Beef. Lucy enjoys laying out in the sun, going to doggie daycare, playing you chase me for the basketball, knows give me paw, laydown, kiss, nice, off, and come.  Lucy is a uncrated house dog that loves to lay on the couch and bed, but will also lay on her dog bed.

Hello, you’ve not met me before. I’m Delilah and I’ve been adopted!

Hey everyone, it’s the ‘original’ Mr. Magoo here! I guess that since there’s another Maggo now, they’re going to have to start referring to us as Magoo 1 & Magoo 2. Here’s where they first wrote about me back in 11/09. As you can see, things couldn’t be any better for me. I love my little human and my family so much. Here’s my Happy Tail!

Rosebud here! Well my name is Charlie now. As you can see, life is really good for me now and I’m settling in quite nicely at my new furever home. Check out my Happy Tail!

Kingston LOVES his Christmas Sweater!

And because I got my new Christmas sweater, I decided to break my vow of silence. Okay, maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe it had something to do with the fact that my mom was eating a peanut butter sandwich and I wanted some of it.
