Meet Tory Burch

I am one smokin’ hot Bulldog babe, just like the original Tory Burch… You know, the purse and the shoe lady. I do have a shoe fetish. Well, every woman loves a good pair of leather shoes, so I really can’t say I am much different that any other lady who loves the finer things.

Now, let me tell you a little about myself… I am 5 years old. My fur is genuine, not fake, and it is soft as silk. I do love a good spa day. A spa day makes me feel like a million dollars! My nails were painted hot pink, but I thought that might be too much for the average person, so I removed that polish and now I’m just wearing clear.

My perfect family will have a leather sofa with some soft blankets. And a pillow or two. I am not much of a crate lady, but I love a leather sofa. I hope my new family has other dogs in their home because I love friends. I have never been around cats, so I don’t know if I like those or not.

I have been with my foster family for a few weeks now. My motto is ‘talk less, smile more.’ Seriously, I haven’t said a peep since I’ve been here, but I can’t stop smiling. I also can’t get enough love. You can pet me anywhere and I love it ~ face, back and, of course, belly rubs are always a big hit. I’m a giver, too. I will give you all the kisses you can stand, and them a few more just for good measure. I have really gotten into the routine around here. I never miss an opportunity to potty outside, now that I know that is what is expected. I usually just follow my fur brother wherever he goes, and so far, he hasn’t steered me wrong. He even let me have his bed. 

So if you are interested in a classy and classic gal, check me out on the rescue's website .
Senior Spotlight--
Meet Gladys!

Please welcome Gladys to our rescue family. It is the sad story we have heard too many times. An older dog is found roaming the streets, goes to the shelter, and no one comes to claim her. But we claimed her! We will love her, care for her and find her a great new home where she will be loved forever.

Gladys, about 8 years old, is a very sweet white/brindle girl who got her freedom ride and went straight to the vet. There, she got everything checked out and fixed for her grand debut.

Many have met Gladys at recent events, and have fallen in love with her sweetness. One of her favorite things to do is spend time with her people. Gladys does great on walks, does awesome on car rides, is great with all other dogs, loves to snuggle, and is close to perfect on house training.

Gladys has put on a couple of pounds, but that’s OK, because they fit her perfectly! Gladys does however have one quirk… She is not a fan of being picked up. Because of this, Gladys’ perfect furever family would be one without small children.

If you are interested in a special senior saint, check out Gladys’ page on our website.
Why I Adopted a Senior Bulldog:

• I know he spent 9 years with another family that decided they were done with him and dropped him off at a kill shelter.
• I know he was so lonely and frightened in that shelter that he became deathly ill for no apparent health reason.
• I know that he was scheduled to be euthanized at 2:00 pm on May 27, 2017.
• I know that when we got him from that awful shelter at 1:00 pm on May 27, 2017 that he was dying of a broken heart.
• I know that he smelled like death and was covered in fleas, ticks, feces, and vomit.
• I know that Dr. Larsen could find no medical reason that he was vomiting blood and had black, bloody diarrhea.
• I know that with a little attention and care, he flourished and became healthy and happy.
• I know that with a little love, he trusted again.
• I know that with a LOT of love, he loved again.
• I know I won’t have a lifetime with him, but the time I will have with him will be a life well loved.
We Need You!

We are on target to far exceed our largest year ever in intakes, adoptions and vet expenses. Please consider helping us now and throughout the year.

We are seeing more dogs, and more of those dogs have health issues. That is the reason they are being surrendered—the owner feels they can no longer provide the required medical care for the dog. We have seen more skin and infectious issues. We have seen more severe illnesses, and more cancer. We currently have three dogs in hospice care who are not adoptable. We have two who have had Heartworm treatment and two more who need the treatment. We have had several have palate surgery and more who need it in order to have the good quality of life they deserve. We are also seeing more dogs with cardiac issues and conditions requiring surgery by a specialist.

It is not surprising then that our vet bill for January through March 2019 was $84,754. And unfortunately income did not keep up with expenses. We need your help in covering that deficit and making sure the dogs we currently have can have the surgeries they need.

Be Careful During the Hot Summer Months!

Heatstroke in Dogs:
Know the Signs

  • Raised temperature (101.5° is normal)
  • Rapid breathing and panting
  • Excess salivation and thickened saliva
  • Fatigue or depression
  • Muscle tremors
  • Staggering

If you spot these signs, get your dog inside and contact your vet.
Wrap your dog in cold wet towels, especially the underarm/belly/groin area. A fan may be used on the dog during the cooling process.

Check your dog’s temperature every five minutes and end the cooling treatment when the temperature is down to 102°. Avoid cooling too rapidly to avoid shock. Allow access to cool water, but don’t force your dog to drink. Your vet may push IV fluids if dehydration is a concern.

Dehydration in Dogs:
Know the Signs

  • Sunken eyes
  • Lethargy
  • Dry mouth
  • Depression
  • Gently pinch a fold of skin at the top of the neck. Is it slow to snap back?

Not all signs of dehydration are easy to detect. If you suspect your dog may be dehydrated, a trip to the vet is recommended. Offer clean cool water. Try different bowls, adding a splash of carrot juice, chicken broth, or pieces of a favorite fruit to one of the bowls to encourage drinking. Some dogs enjoy a few ice chips in their water dish.
