MESA ARIZONA:

Snowi was found as a stray, wandering the streets, hungry and sick. She was taken in and is being nursed back to health and she is now starting to eat and regain some of her strength.

She is looking for either a foster or adoptive home as the people who took her in are not able to keep her long term.

She is very sweet with people but is not overly fond of other dogs. She is very typical of the Anatolian nature and is protective of her home/property and, even though she is weak and malnourished, she still gives the coyotes fair warning to not come around!

She is about two yrs old, is housebroken and walks nicely on a leash.

ANATOLIAN SHEPHERD, FEMALE, MISSING ALVIN/LIVERPOOL TEXAS!!

PLEASE CROSS POST!!

My dog, Faith, went missing Christmas day. She is a 120 lbs Anatolian Shepherd with long thick cream/agouti coloring and a black mask and ears. She is spayed and tattooed. She's approx 5 to 7 years old with slight greying on her muzzle. She is very sweet and gentle. She will jump into a car for a ride. Please if you see her or have her in your yard try to coax her indoors if possible and email or call me. I learned that somone in a white truck picked her up two houses away from mine on Saturday. She hates being on a leash and will struggle to get away. My search has now expanded to include all of Houston . Please, any information you have could be helpful. Thank you for your time.



Anatolian Shepherd

Adult, Female

Faith went missing around noon on Christmas day. She was last seen on CR 192 in Liverpool TX. Faith was abandoned on our street several weeks ago and is not familiar with the area. We've since fallen in love with her and consider her a part of our family. We want her back. She's a sweet wonderful dog but she's very shy and absolutely hates collars and leashes. I'm so worried that she will jump into someone's car and then run away because she won't allow anyone to put a leash on her. Please if you have seen her, call me. We just want her safe and back at home, where she belongs.

Please contact Faith's Owner, Katrina at:

832-621-7481

If you have any information regarding Faith, please email me at

SACRAMENTO CALIFORNIA:
DEC 16 UPDATE: THIS GIRL HAS BEEN ADOPTED

Amazon, or Mazie as her volunteer fans call her, is a gentle giant. She's about 2 years old and as you can see by her photos, extremely underweight. But a good quality food and TLC will have her back in good form again shortly.

Mazie knows the command "sit" and walks so nicely on leash you really don't need one. She is showing signs of being house trained, but all shelter dogs need a week or two of your patience while you learn each other's routines.

Mazie seems to like other dogs and we can test her with cats. She's an extremely mellow dog right now but will probably be more lively once she's in a home and has her weight and health back. Mazie is also a bit shy at first, especially of loud or sudden movements, so a house without small children is ideal for her.

We recommend you research this breed before adopting such as these tips on the Anatolian Shepherd rescue web site Click here for rescue website information



Find Mazie in the Auggie Doggie room, kennel D87. (sg)


For more information about this animal, call:
Sacramento County Animal Care and Regulation at (916) 368-7387

He is just a big goofy, silly pup right now, looking for a family to call his own.

DALLAS FORT WORTH TEXAS: URGENT FOSTER NEEDED ASAP! EVEN SHORT TERM FOSTERING WOULD SAVE THIS SWEET GIRL

UPDATE: 12-08-09

THIS GIRL HAS BEEN TAKEN INTO RESCUE BY THE WONDERFUL LADIES W/SPIN (SAVING PYRS IN NEED). THANK YOU, LADIES, FOR SAVING THIS SWEET OLD GIRL.




This poor girl barely has any hair left and she is in terrible condition. A girl found her wandering the streets in the DFW area.
She took her home but cannot keep her in her tiny apt and we are desperately seeking a foster---even short term foster would keep her from going to a shelter.
A shelter would likely put her down bc of her medical needs.

We have not had her to a vet yet but NASRN will cover all of her medical bills if we can just find a foster for her.

She is sweet and friendly and gets along with the little Pomeranian in the apt.

Please let us know if you can help, even for a week or so! If we cant find a place for her the girl will have to take her to a shelter.

For more information on fostering or adoption, please email us at

BURLESON TEXAS: URGENT FOSTER OR ADOPTION NEEDED ASAP

Charlie, along with his Great Pyrenees girlfriend, were unceremoniously dumped on a country highway north of the DFW area.
Pyrenees rescue is taking the girlfriend and we are trying to find a foster or adoptive home for this poor guy.

Charlie is a very gentle, docile boy. He's good with other dogs and seems to be good with cats too. He's good around kids and adults as well.
Right now, the only safe refuge we could find was an outdoor kennel with a dog house.
All the other boarding kennels were full.
Not the best option but at least its safe and he has food.

When Charlie went to the vet today to get his shots before he went to the kennel, we found out that he is heartworm positive.
We REALLY want to get this sweet boy into a foster home so we can start him on the slow kill treatment for heartworms.

We will always do our best to help transport within 1,000 miles.
PLEASE let us know if you might be able to help this sweet boy.

Happy Days for "Husky"

Last September I posted about a senior Anatolian mix named Husky who had been abandoned by his "owners" when they fled their foreclosed home.

Two neighbors had been bringing Husky food and water but Husky's days were numbered at the abandoned house.

Luckily for Husky, Nancy F. read about his situation and volunteered to take him in temporarily. Another local rescue group said they would have room for Husky in two weeks so Nancy said she would hold on to him until they could take him.

Well, two weeks turned into 3 and then turned into a month or more. The local group did not want to take Husky after they found out about all the medical care he needed.
Husky needed to be on thyroid medication and he had terrible ear infections which required frequent (painful) cleanings and medicating.
Nancy continued to take care of Husky, giving him lots of TLC and helping him to regain his strength and health. The two neighbors have continued to pay for all of Husky's veterinary care and travel to Nancy's to visit him even though she lives a couple hours away.


Husky has been with Nancy for about 3 months now and he is doing so well. The vet has told Nancy that Husky is 95% better now. That is a huge improvement considering he was about one week away from death when she got him.




If you look at the pictures of Husky, how he looked when Nancy first got him....and look at him now. He looks like a completely different dog.
He is feeling good and enjoying life, probably for the first time, ever.
He loves going places ..... El Pollo Loco is one of his favorite places to go, he loves their chicken =) He also enjoys the company of Nancy's grandchildren and even feels good enough to play with some of the other dogs.








>





Thank you so much, Nancy, for opening your home and your heart to this old, dirty, sick dog that didn't have much hope left.
You've given him a new lease on life and given him a loving home with companionship and comfort for his twilight years.









What a GREAT SMILE!!!

SEYMOUR TEXAS:

Sam and Lilly were turned into a shelter when their owner got a job out of state. He packed up and moved and dumped this pair in the local kill shelter.

They have been in foster home for awhile now and are patiently waiting for a home and family to call their own.

Sam and Lilly are between 6-7 yrs old. They've been fully vetted, spayed and neutered. Seems that everyone wants a puppy but there's a lot to be said for a mature dog. My own opinion is Anatolians are like fine wine and just get better with age. Right now they are at the age where they are comfortable with themselves, they are grounded and well past that puppy-gotta-chew-everything stage.

They are bonded to one another and it is our hope that they can be adopted together, however, we will still be happy to consider individual homes for each of them.
Please read on for more info on Sam and Lilly


SAMSON aka "SAM"


It has been a delight having him in my home as a foster dog.
He is very quiet and very gentle. He loves attention and
affection but he likes it on his terms.
Apparently he was
not treated well in his life but aside from his being a little
shy you would never know because he is so loving. Aren't dogs
wonderful that they can forgive and still have hope?

He is one big teddy-bear of a dog. Samson will warm up to
you in his own way. He will come up to you for attention
and run to greet you at the door tail wagging. He likes to
be petted and rubbed everywhere but his head. He has shown
absolutely no negative responses in any circumstance and
will let you do anything to him tho' he is a bit un-sure
what you are going to do. I find that amazing and admirable.

He stands calmly and quietly for a bath, nail clipping,
brushing. He has no food issues with other dogs or people.

He is WONDERFUL with kids. I think he actually enjoys laying
out in the yard while my girls play like he is keeping a watchful
eye out for them.
If you are looking for a companion that
is laid back, easy-going, loves everyone, quiet, gentle, and
affectionate then Samson is the dog for you!
Please consider
giving this wonderful dog a chance in a home where he will be
loved and treated respectfully. He deserves it and has been
waiting for his own special miracle to happen for too long.
If you can bring two dogs into your home he has a sweetheart
named Delilah (Lilly). They are very bonded to each other
and make the perfect pair.


DELILAH aka "LILLY"


Lilly is quite the clown. She always has a smile on her face and
is so happy to greet you. She loves attention and being petted
and talked to. Lilly has a beautiful coat, soft and longish and
honey and cream colored.
She likes to talk to you and tell you how
much she enjoys being petted. She is very enthusiastic and puppy-like
in many ways. It is very endearing to see her gallop up to you
like a pony. She loves everyone and is dog-friendly too.

She is a little shy sometimes if she does not know what you are going
to do. It is sad that people have such amazing dogs and mistreat them.
She loves to go for walks and just loves being around her 'family'.
She will let you bathe and brush her and do her nails very well.
She rides good in the car too.
As you can see she has the
sweetest face! She is fantastic with children.
Lilly is a special
girl and is so wanting her very own family that will love her and
appreciate her for the queen that she is. If you can find it in
your heart to adopt two of these magnificent dogs, Lilly has a
very special friend that she is quite bonded to. His name is
Samson. They make a superb pair!

CHARLESTON WEST VIRGINIA: 3 EXPERIENCED LIVESTOCK GUARDIAN DOGS FOR ADOPTION

Bear, Rocky and Princess have been raised on a farm with goats all their lives. When their owner died, her husband sold all of the goats and stopped feeding the three dogs. Concerned neighbors stepped in and that is how the trio ended up in foster care with us.

All 3 are friendly with people. Princess is more shy than the two boys but once she knows you she will warm up.

Bear is 3 yrs old and Rocky and Princess are both 18 months old.

They are all ready for adoption. We will assist with transport if possible.
Princess may not do well on a long distance transport, it may be too stressful for her so she should stay within a one day drive of her foster home.

For more info please contact Lana homevisit@nasrn.com

HAMMONTON NEW JERSEY:


Meet Ilsa!


Ilsa is 8 years old, spayed female Turkish Kangel also known as Anatolian Shepherd Dog. Ilsas previous owner became terminally ill and sadly had to give up the beautiful dog she raised from a pup.


Ilsa is a BIG sweetheart. She loves people, all people! She is great with kids (we have not had her around very small children but we suspect she would be fine). Ilsa is very affectionate, outgoing, and playful. She is well behaved on the leash and loves going for walks.

Ilsa has a charming doggie vocabulary of soft crooning vocalizations that she uses to communicate with her human friends. Ilsa is a guardian breed and she will bark to alert you if something unusual is going on, but she will stop barking if told to or if she determines there is no danger.



Ilsa is healthy and eats regular dog food, but she is getting "creaky" in her golden years. Ilsa seems perfectly happy with human only companions and generally does not seek out the company of other dogs. If you are considering her for a multi-dog home she would probably do best with non-dominate, laid back dogs and she seems better with males than females.




Ilsa is one of those dogs who seem more like a person than a dog. Her beautiful expressive eyes reflect her good nature, her sense of humor, her playful nature, and her contentment in the company of friends.

If you have room in your life for an older gal who is looking for a person or family to call her own again please let us know.
