HOUSTON TEXAS: UPDATE ON NADIDE:

NADIDE IS NOW IN A FOSTER HOME!! YAY! WE WILL POST UPDATES ON HER SOON!




We first posted an urgent message last week about this poor girl that was on death row in a Houston shelter.
It was a frantic day with a lot of emails and phone calls going back and forth but, thanks to the efforts of many dedicated rescuers, we were able to put a "hold" on her and she was taken off the kill list.




This once nameless dog is now known as "Nadide" (pronounced Na-deed) which is Turkish for "Precious, worthy of rescue".
Dr. Pat Cooper, who is partial to Turkish names, felt that was a fitting name as she certainly is worthy of rescue.


Dr. Pat took Miss Nadide to a Houston area boarding kennel where she is being cared for until we can find a foster home for her.
She is extremely malnourished and her back legs look rather deformed right now. Dr. Pat feels they will get better, though, with good nutrition and time.



She is literally skin and bones yet was nursing two babies. Her babies, btw, have also been rescued, thankfully.

Nadide has a long road ahead of her. She is heartworm positive and also has mange. NASRN will treat her for both and is dedicated to getting her back on her feet.

Top priority is to stabilize her, physically, and get her into a foster home where she can rest, recuperate and get a lot of TLC.




Her bills will be high and NASRN would appreciate any donations to help with her care. You can either make a Paypal donation or mail a check to:

NASRN

PO Box 13667

Mesa, AZ 85216


Nadide is not strong enough for a long transport right now so we are hoping to find a foster for her that is within an easy day's drive from Houston.





Heaven only knows what she has been through and how she managed to keep herself and her babies alive. She is a survivor, though, and in her face, you can see she still has hope.





If you'd like more information on Nadide or just want to check in to see how she is doing, you can email me at nasrn@nasrn.com

THIS GIRL IS IN NEED OF A FOSTER OR ADOPTIVE HOME



Hello there! My name is Siobahn (pronounced Sha-bon) .

I come from the cowboy Lonestar State of Texas. Yeehaw!
The awesome folks at the Anatolian Rescue saw my shelter pic on the internet and immediately realized the special dog that I am! Thank goodness. I don't know what has happened to me but I am one very
extraordinary dog.



I am a fantastic representation of the breed in so many ways.
I am young and friendly and I love children! And I am
extremely beautiful to look at according to my foster mom!



I am youthful; and playful with kids, and very alert and inquisitive.
I don't dig or bark or jump up on people.
I am just enjoyable to
be around. If you are looking for a life-time forever friend
to enhance the quality of your life in so many ways you never dreamed
possible then you have found me.

Please come get me quick tho' because I
am really looking forward to enjoying the love of a true "family"
finally like I so deserve!
Love,

- Siobahn

SANTA ROSA CALIFORNIA:

Update on "Beau" who was pulled from a shelter just a couple of weeks ago.
Beau's owner surrendered him to the shelter because he said Beau was too wild and was "aggressive with all other animals".
Humm.......really? Take a look at him here, in his foster home, lounging with a few goats.
Does this look like a dog that is "aggressive to all other animals"??

Beau is by no means considered a trained LGD, but the fact that he is so comfortable with goats, cats, other dogs and people is amazing to me.

He still has a long road to recovery ahead of him. He is too thin for surgery so he can't be neutered yet. He was so stressed out over being in the shelter that he stopped eating.
Then he came down with kennel cough and hasn't been feeling well so, that equals more weight lost.
His foster mom reports that he "finally" has an appetite now so it looks like he may have turned a corner.

Beau will be looking for a loving home after he is neutered. He's going to need a home where someone is home a lot. He's a really great dog and has a lot of potential if someone is able to work with him and give him a lot of love.

NEWPORT TENNESSEE (EASTERN TN)



JAKE IS IN A KILL SHELTER AND IS IN URGENT NEED OF FOSTER OR ADOPTION ASAP

Jake is a 2 yo male Anatolian Shep cross. He stands 32" tall at the shoulder and weighs a thin 72 lbs.

He is good with other dogs, friendly and laid back with people, and ignores the cats.
As you can see from the discoloration around his neck, he has been living at the end of a chain.
He does not seem to have been physically abused, he is not a fearful dog.


We are hoping to get him out of the shelter and into a foster (even temp foster would help) or adoptive home.
We will have him neutered and fully vetted before he leaves the shelter.


We will also help with transport within appx 1,000 miles!

DALLAS FORT WORTH, TEXAS:

TRUE IS "STILL" LOOKING FOR A FOSTER OR ADOPTION!!!

Hi there,
My name is "True". I'm a teen aged Anatolian Shepherd x Great Pyrenees cross.
Back in October, 2009, I somehow ended up in a crazy noisy place called a shelter and things were looking pretty grim until a nice lady came and got me.
She took me to this other place called a "boarding kennel".
I'm sad to say that I am still sitting in this cage at the boarding kennel. Don't get me wrong, the people here are nice to me but I'm really sad and tired of being in a cage all the time.

I day dream about having a yard with grass and some little humans to watch over.
I really like those little humans, they're a lot of fun.
I would like to have a girl dog to play with too, I think that would be lots of fun as well.
I think about having my own home to watch over and not have to be caged up every day.

I am not very good at math but I've heard some of the humans talk and they tell me I've been here for "6 months". I don't know what 6 months means but I know it must be a really long time, b/c it seems like I've been locked up forever and a day.

The humans were doing some math and I heard them say this is how much it's costing to keep me in this cage:

$8 per day x 30 days per month= $240 per month x 6 months=$1440.00

Like I said, I'm not so good at math, in fact, I really don't know what math is, but I do know I'm just really sad and would really love to get out of this cage.

The humans tell me they will find me a ride to almost anywhere in the US or Canada if someone was kind enough to open their home to me.
This is the lady to bark at if you think you might be able to spring me outta doggy jail:

For more information, please email Carleen at
nasrn@nasrn.com


Well, thanks for talking with me. I sure hope one of you nice humans out there might be able to help set me free. I promise I will be a real good boy.
Signed with a slobbery kiss,
Sincerely yours,
"True"
