7/3 Samantha Holton granted me permission to condense her message. She says crossposting is still needed. Four dogs have lost their home due to a domestic violence situation that is escalating. One has promise of rescue in Illinois but needs a way to get there. The four indoor dogs are currently in an outdoor pen, the temporary guests of a kind neighbor. The plan was that their human mom (and her daughter and granddaughter) would leave their home early this morning to stay with relatives in another state. Rescue or adoption is immediately needed for Damian, Jasper, and Lexi. There is a rescue offer for  Rocky but he needs transport to get to Illinois.

Samantha Holton is the contact. She wrote, "I only received this plea for help on Friday, so time was not on my side in trying to find immediate rescue." Her contact info is: (

Owner's description of Damian: half Husky half German Shepard. I adopted him when he was ~ 6 months old. He is fixed and carries the trait of one blue eye one brown eye of the husky family. He is so lovable and full of energy. He loves outside, but is also housebroken and knows the sit command. He loves the vents of the AC. He loves to run and play and receive attention. 

Owner's description of Jasper. Also called "Shorty," I got him at a year old from an abusive home. He is so sweet and protective. He hardly had fur, and I took him to the vet and got him all of his shots. He loves kids, and is good with females. He is housebroken and loves attention. He already knows how to sit. He doesn't need shots until October.
Owner's description of Lexi. My Rotti, I have had her since she was 6 weeks old. She is a big love. A little shy of strangers at first but warms up nicely. Not a mean bone in her body. She is also up to date on her shots.  She has a golden heart, all she needs is a loving and caring home. She is also housebroken and knows the sit command, and will give paw time to time. She loves to be called "Mama's love." A great addition to anyone's home. Not a fighter! From:    (at

...She and her family have been threatened to be killed if she goes to police, so she will not make a report on the abuser, but prefers to leave and go back to NC.  Without a police report on file, none of the organizations for Domestic Violence that helps families and their pets can help her or the dogs...These are house pets, and will have a very hard transition from house to yard dogs in a pen. She begged me to take her dogs but I am full and cannot help.

She is particularly worried about "Lexi" who answers to "Mama's Love" as she is very bonded and loves her owner.  She is calling her a Rottie mix, but I see more Shepherd, or something other than Rottie in this girl?

The one she is calling an American Bulldog, who looks more like a Boxer mix to me, was said to have been attacked outside yesterday by another dog, and the girl who will be keeping them in the pen said she put some "purple spray" on the wounds. She said he had some bite wounds on his rear end. This dog is named "Jasper" or "Shorty" in the photos.

"Rocky" the small shep mix has a rescue in Illinois, but needs transport.  They had one but that fell through, as there is no one to get Rocky to Shellbvyville TN today to meet the transport.

PLEASE CONTINUE to cross-post for rescues and transport for these dogs.  As I stated "ROCKY" has rescue, but NEEDS TRANSPORT to Illinois. I am so grateful to all who are trying to find a solution here.  PLEASE CONTINUE to try to find reputable rescues or homes for these dogs.

I will be the contact on them if anyone is able to offer rescue or a solution to this problem.  I will try to take some food to the woman who will at least keep them in a pen for now in hopes this helps some. I cannot do much more right now with my own 60 rescue dogs to feed and care for.  My heart aches for these dogs.

Blessings and Peace,

4 Dogs in need of home!

All of my dogs have been loved and is full of love.  When you leave and come home they greet you with all this love they have.  I am in a bad personal situation, to where I have to move with my daughter and grand-daughter as soon as possible.  I can no longer stay where we are due to emotional and mental abuse and disrespect.  A relationship has gone bad, and my daughter and I have no family here.  Our closest family member is 500 miles away and that's where we must move.  I must leave before it goes to the next level.  

I am leaving early Wednesday morning, and the only place we have to move, doesn't except animals.  It hurts my daughter and me to our hearts that we have to get rid of them, because they are like family to us, but we have no choice.  We just want them loved and cared for, as if they were still with us. This is like I'm losing part of me. I feel as though I am giving four of my children away, and if it was any other way I would not do it.  I don't want them put to sleep. I really need to know they would be taken care of and loved, as we would.

These four dogs have been spoiled, extremely spoiled.  I give them dog food, treats, and make them dinner with my daughter and me.  They sleep in bed at night, and will wake you to go outside.  There time is between 5:30 and 6:30 am every morning.  I just want them loved and cared for.  I am in desperate need of help for my babies. They are all use to being together.
Owner's description of Rocky: This little man is Rocky, a mixed breed, and a sweetheart. He also is housebroken, and knows how to sit.  He is a great family dog, and is about 3 years old.  I found him abandoned at a dumpster site in Burke County as a puppy.  I took him in, fed him, and took him to the vet.  He is due for his next shots.  He loves to lick you, play with you and give you love.  He loves attention.
