1 y.o.!!!!!!

Subject: Abandoned dog in Brock, TX


This is a plea to anyone who could help Jodi, a fellow horse rescuer in
Brock TX (near Weatherford) she is aware of a pit bully female dog whose
owners moved back to New Mexico and left her there to starve in the heat.


Jodi says she was timid but has gotten better, is not aggressive, less than
a year old and not spayed.


If ANYONE has any contacts, or knows anyone who could help, please call Jodi
at 817 304-7259 . . . and please continue to pass along, if the homeowner
that rented to these people calls Animal Control it won't be good for her, I
don't imagine...

Nice to see you again Kindle.  Don't like tons of topics so re-named yours to include more stories about animals needing rescue.  Hope you don't mind.... that way we can look at all of them at once.  Why don't you and everyone else try out our hangman game.  Val M.  seems to be playing alone today.  Thanks again Kindle

"Bear" BCxPyrenees re-home request charlotte NC


Postby asprag on Thu Aug 19, 2010 10:29 am


I was forwarded this request for help with BCx in charlotte.
This private foster rescued the dog but now finds herself unable to contain this fellow.
she has not found any other resources to place him nearby.

Please respond to her if possible, I am just the means for getting the word out.

UPDATE saturday august 21 info rx:
Bear did test heartworm negative. He is also receiving his monthly flea and tick, and heartworm preventive medicine

"Bear" was found chained to a tree laying in his own feces. It is known that he had been neglected, unfed, and possibly beaten from time to time. But, one would never know it considering he is a very sweet, obedient, loving dog. He loves being around children, and did very well with my five other dogs.

The only problem I had with him was keeping him fenced in the backyard. No matter what stragedy we used, Bear would always figure a way over the fence. And besides living off of a main road with a speed limit of 55 MPH, we also had a loose male dog in the neighborhood who would constantly wonder onto our property. The two dogs did not get along which added to the constant danger of keeping him. The only solution was to place him in a temporary foster home to ensure his safety.

We love Bear very much and would love to see him in a permanent, loving home. He has been dewormed, altered, and is up to date on all his shots. And although Bear is half Pyrenees, his face is more Border Collie

So, it would be greatly appreciated for any help you may be able to give. I live in Charlotte, North Carolina and will be willing to drive long distance if needed.

Thanks again for your time.

In the attached photos, Bear has been groomed as his beautiful long fur was knotted up and had to be shaved off. Marcia has had him neutered and has all his necessary shots.
I have asked about heartguard/frontline and will update as I learn details.

further info from Marcia:
My fence is 4 ft high. Bear is very obedient in which he is very eager to please. He does listen to the word no, and will immediately show signs of submission. Prior to me having him sent to the foster farm, I was working with him to be able to stay inside. He did adjust very well in the house considering he's been an outside dog all his life. My house is very active, and it never seemed to phase him. The only problem I had with him was the spraying.

We sent Bear to the groomer because of the horrible condition that his fur was in, and because of the fleas and ticks. The groomer had to work with him all day because he was terrified of the water. He did not show any signs of agression, he would just freeze up in fear. I later learned that there is a good chance he was abused with water as well [by previous owner].

When I threw balls for Bear to get them, he ran, but really didn't know what to do with them. He mostly enjoyed running, playing with my other dogs, and being around the kids.

Bear is such a sweet dog (even the vet office loves him a lot) that I just wish he can find a home soon.
