Beautiful Bertha

Bertha is an American Bulldog
Weight: 67 lbs

Bertha is a darling. Sweet and unassuming, she is a truly humble soul. Bertha is quiet and makes no demands for your attention. She can sit and lay down on command. On a leash, she walks beside you and does not pull. This girl is not in a hurry. Bertha loves people and gets along with other nice dogs. She is a beauty. I just love her smile, it reads all over her face. There isn’t much more than can be said, I think her pictures do her better justice than I can with words. Love you, darling girl.

Be sure to watch Bertha’s video below.

Here Comes Trouble: The Evies

These little terriers look a lot like my Evie. That means trouble! I must be a masochist because I actually thought about how cute it would be to have all three at my house with Evie…cute for three minutes and then nothing but terrier trouble!

 

Croc-o-dile

UPDATE: I am truly sorry to say that Crocodile was euthanized. I know this little man had much potential. I had wished that his life could have continued in love, to overshadow those painful moments that scarred his body. Maybe Croc and I will take a walk in the dreamtime some day. I’m looking forward to it.

Crocodile will be euthanized if not adopted or rescued by 9-07-11
Crocodile is a Basset Hound Mix

I would lose my head if it weren’t attached to my body. I went to the shelter today to get know the scared dog in I-14, who is on the list to be euthanized tomorrow morning, and I left the memory card for my camera at home. It was too late in the day to go back and get it. I could have kicked myself. I did get a couple of pictures but there was no room on internal memory for video.

I asked to see I-14 and was surprised when he was brought out. I had only seen a blurry of the dog and thought he was more of a retriever mix. It turns out he is a basset hound mix with a very broad head. Right off the bat, I could tell he was scared and confused. He had the wide-eye look and didn’t know where to go. He was also covered with scars. It wouldn’t take a genius to know that those wounds were from dog fights. The dog was brought into the shelter with open wounds. The vet started him on medication and put staples in on a wound on his neck. It is a very sad state to see a dog in.

I’ll admit that I was hesitant at first to touch this dog. I didn’t know his temperament and history. You never want to push an unknown dog pass his comfort zone. The inmate that brought him out was handling him. Slowly, I would test where he would allow me to touch. His side, leg, side of face, back leg, ears, and so on. All touch he allowed. We could lift up his lips. The inmate said he gave the dog his meds with no problem. I can’t say he enjoyed it much because he was so concerned over his environment. He bonded fast with the inmate and we decided to call him “Crocodile” since he was low to the ground, strong, and all beat up.

Crocodile relaxed a bit. The inmate would snap his fingers and tell Croc to sit. Croc would spin in a circle three times and then sit, leaning against him. It was sweet. That is the essence of Croc. Sweetness lying just underneath the surface. He just needs to build up trust with the world again.

We walked him by the kennels and watched his reaction. I saw no aggression toward other dogs. He would sniff and walk away. He was startled by another dog being walked by and he couldn’t get away fast enough. It seems to me that Croc was more of a victim that the aggressor in the (possible) dog fights.


I cannot make any promises. He’ll need work and time but I think it’s those that may take an investment of time that pay off like Wall Street bankers. We like him and see something shining through the confusion in his eyes. Can you give Crocodile a second chance at love, life, and safety?

Byron!

UPDATE: Byron was rescued!

Byron will be euthanized if not adopted or rescued by 9-07-11
Byron is a Pit Bull/Lab Mix

This young dog will charm the socks off you in a minute flat! Byron is just a fur covered love.  From Shelter Rescue, Byron’s bio/story:

 Just recently, “Byron” had a wonderful, loving home.  His potential family came to the shelter along with their sweet Golden Retriever mix to choose a shelter pet to join their family.  After taking several dogs out, they finally took out “Byron” to get to know him.  Immediately, their dog and “Byron” became best friends.  It was quite simply “a no brainer” who would be a new part of their four-legged family.  We were thrilled for “Byron” because you could no ask for a better family and we knew he would have the best of everything.  The family filled out the adoption paperwork and were so happy….they were looking forward to picking “Byron” up after he had been vetted.  Sadly, they were informed by their Home Owners Association that they could not have pit or pit mixes in their neighborhood.  Our hearts broke for “Byron”.  Now…he is out of time and his life is in jeopardy.  “Byron” is simply the BEST!  He loves and adores people and also gets along GREAT with other dogs.  He even shares treats/food with NO squabbles.  He is extremely humble and has no desire to be “alpha”.  He only wants to be loved and accepted.  Just look at his face….you can see how sweet he truly is.  He never makes a fuss to be noticed….ever.

To summarize: Byron is awesome, HOAs are not.

I love this expression. Pure peace with the world

Can you give him a third chance at love and life?

Bully!

UPDATE: Bully was rescued!

Bully will be euthanized if not adopted or rescued by 9-07-11
Bully is a DSH Tux

This young male is certainly a love and very confident. In fact, he was named “Bully” because he would always make sure to get to the food bowl first and eat his fill before the others. He is a complete ham for the camera. Rolling over and reaching out to the camera like he was an old pro. Be sure to check out his video below.


Bully could be your next muse! I know he inspired me to doodle….I haven’t picked up a pencil to draw since art school!

Meg (Back at the shelter!)

I finally got back to the shelter yesterday. It was so great to go back. I hope it won’t be another month before I get there again. Now, on to the animals…

UPDATE: Meg was rescued!

Meg will be euthanized if not adopted or rescued by 9-02-11
Meg is a Great Dane/Lab Mix
Weight: 77 lbs.

Gentle is the keyword here. Meg is quiet, reserved and a gentle lamb. She walks right beside you on the leash and I couldn’t imagine it taking long to teach her to heel (or anything at all). It wouldn’t take her long to blossom under a caring touch. She is needing some more life experience to become a more confident and outgoing dog. Meg is on the larger side but moves like there is glass on the floor. Slow, gentle, and hopefully, sure.

Meg shares a kennel with another larger dog and they get along just fine.

Meg and friend

Meg was found stuck underneath a car. She couldn’t get out and animal control had to jack up the car to free her. From stuck underneath a car to stuck in a kennel at animal control, Meg has no idea what is going on. Can you give her a sense of purpose and belonging again?
