Rescue Recap- w/e 12/27/09

Posted: December 27th, 2009






Momma & babies arrived safely in Pennsylvania after being delayed because of the weather. Momma has been named “Nellie” and here she is enjoying probably her first experience ever with snow. She’s doing great and gets along with everyone. Her babies are at different foster homes and we’ll be adding pictures to their photo album.

Nellie is looking for her forever home!








Remember Sammy? We first wrote about Sammy having his eye surgery on October 26, 2009. We’re happy to report that Sammy is as happy as he can be in his forever home and we’re thrilled that we are able to move his photo album from the Rescue section to the Success section. We want to, again, give a VERY big Thank You to Barbara S., as well as, everyone else that donated for the generosity in helping with Sammy’s surgery.




Meet Missy. She will be joining ABR over the next few days. Missy is coming from a shelter in NY and here’s what one of the volunteers wrote about her: “Missy is a 10 year old chubby senior  bulldog mix who was surrendered 4 days before Christmas by someone who claims she has “no time” now that a new baby is in the house. But she was certain to mention that Missy loves little babies. Go figure. I am not at all surprised that Missy is child friendly, because this gentle soul became my buddy within 20 seconds of our walk, turning and straining toward me so she could give me one happy lick of thanks. Missy is a confident, amiable delight, plain and simple—in fact, she’s the dog I would walk at the end of the night as a reward.”

Please consider giving Missy a forever home.





We wrote about our little blind girl Laurey a while back. Laurie is now Zoey and has an awesome forever home. We’re delighted to add Zoey’s photo album to our success section.






12/30/09 Update- Paisley has been adopted!!!

Paisley needs a home! Paisley is not in ABR care and this is a courtesy post. One of her humans is extremely allergic to her. Here is Paisley’s write up:

Paisley has a very laid back disposition and is very sweet.  She becomes very attached to people and will follow you where ever you go. She is an oversized lap dog!  She loves going for walks and car rides. She  loves adults and is very good with children.  She has a great personality and loves to play with and fetch her squeaky ladybug toy. She is 4 years old, house trained and spayed.  She does not like to be alone for long periods of time.  She does have issues with other dogs – not all breeds but is especially interested and aggressive with smaller breeds.   She has also had several incidents with larger dogs where she has shown significant signs of aggression.  She would do well with a fenced in yard.  She weighed 99 pounds 3 months ago and is down 12 pounds, we feed her high quality low fat dog food.  We walk her on average 3 times a day.  She has attended Level 2 obedience training and is very responsive and eager to please.  She is up to date on shots and preventative treatments.

If you would like to give Paisley a forever home, please complete our adoption application. More photos are here.



We seem to have had an abundance of “Bella’s” lately but nonetheless……

Meet Baby Bella, also affectionately known as, the Sherman Tank. The little tankster will be joining her foster mom, Carey, this week.  As we understand from Carey, preparations have been made- meaning, the tree has been taken down and the house has been puppy-proofed.

ABR would like to send a big Thank You to Louise at Sunkiva Kennels for taking such good care of Baby Bella while we waited for a foster home to become available.

May the force be with you Carey!

More photos of Baby Bella are here.
