"BEAR"


CHARLESTON, WEST VIRGINIA

Bear was rescued last year after his owner passed away.
Her husband stopped taking care of the dogs
and had them living in a small pen, filled with mud and feces
The neighbors knew he never fed or watered the dogs
so they would bring food and water in order to keep them alive
Finally the owner agreed to give them up.

That was over a year ago and Bear is still sitting in foster care,
waiting and hoping that someone will want to take him home
He kind of has the odds stacked against him
because he is 6 yrs old
and because he has mild hip dysplasia
Bear also tested low positive for heartworm
but has been on the slow kill treatment for almost a year
and will soon be ready to be retested.

Even though he isnt the youngest or most agile of dogs,
Bear has a heart of gold and is a wonderful guardian
He would make a great dog for a small family farm
or he would make a wonderful family companion dog
where he could be a valued member of the family.

The older dogs always get passed over
but there's a lot to be said for the mature dog!
Please take a look at Bear
or another one of our adult dogs
They all have a lot of life and love left in them.

Please email Carleen for more information.

FORT WORTH TEXAS
BAILEY NEEDS A NEW HOME ASAP
Owner dumped him in the shelter!!!

We posted Bailey to our website back in July as his owner asked us to help him find a new home.
Before we were able to find a place for Bailey
he was dumped at a shelter.
Bailey has been at the shelter for almost a month now and he really needs his own home!


Bailey is a very handsome Anatolian x Great Pyrenees cross (3/4 ASD 1/4 Pyrenees). His DOB is Feb 2007. He is a big boy, standing 30 inches at the shoulder and weighing 125 lbs.


He will need to be neutered prior to adoption.
Bailey is good with female dogs and is good with small dogs.
He has not been raised around children or cats so a home without either would be preferable.
Bailey is housebroken, walks on lead and knows basic commands.

He is looking for a home with someone who has experience with Anatolians or other flockguardian breed who has a nice sized fenced yard.

He was raised on a goat farm the first 8 months of his life but has not been around them since.

Bailey is currently housed at the following shelter:


City of Fort Worth Chuck Silcox Animal Care and Control Division

ROCKFORD ILLINOIS
Meet Bear!!
DOB: 11-24-2008
Anatolian x Great Pyrenees cross

Bear's owners relinquished him to rescue because
they could no longer afford to keep/feed him.


Bear is getting along well with the other dogs in his foster home
(both male and female dogs)
He will be neutered as soon as he puts a little weight on
as he is underweight at the moment.

Bear is heartworm negative and current on shots
His muzzle is a little crooked due to the
previous owner either hitting or kicking him in the mouth.
It doesn't seem to bother him though.

Bear has a very sweet and gentle personality and is good with
the foster parent's daughter.
He likes to be petted and is friendly.
He is slightly cautious with his foster dad
but is starting to relax more.

He is housebroken and is not destructive nor is he a big barker.
Bear will make a great family companion dog,
he is a super sweet guy with a really nice temperament and disposition.

As always, we will do our best to assist with transport
within appx 1,000 miles

Please email Jody for more information.

NORTH CAROLINA

"PUNKIN""

If only they could talk.......
A couple of years ago, Punkin and a Great Pyrenees wandered up
to a farm as strays
The owners of the farm put them in the pasture with their horses
and they both lived there, watching over the property, family and herd
One day Punkin was gone
No sign of him anywhere, for a whole year.
Now, after 12 months,
Punkin turns up in a local shelter.
He was microchipped so the shelter called the family.
You would think this would be where there's a happy ending
but its not
They are afraid he will leave again because they dont have
dog proof fencing.

So, once again, Punkin is looking for a home
He is appx 6-7 yrs old
He is good with other dogs, cats, horses
He is good with kids and friendly with people
Punkin is neutered and current on vaccinations.

If you might be interested in adopting him please let us know!

Please email Carleen for more information.

AUSTIN TEXAS (area)
URGENT FOSTER OR ADOPTION NEEDED
ASAP


Meet Ceasar.
He was wandering a highway, aimlessly, for the last three days when a man finally decided he could no longer watch this dog suffer. So he loaded him into his truck and took him to a shelter.

Caesar is at least 40-50 pounds underweight. He was covered in ticks and had open sores on the pads of his feet from walking on hot pavement.
He was extremely weak when he first came to the shelter almost a week ago but he is improving slightly.


We are looking for a foster home who is willing to help nurse this handsome gentleman back to health.

The shelter feels he is about 4 yrs old, despite the fact that he looks much older right now.

Please let us know if you might consider helping him as he would LOVE to get out of the shelter and into a home with some TLC

Please email Carleen for more information.

REX HAS A NEW HOME!

Meet Rex!   He somehow ended up in a kill shelter in Alabama; injured, scared, hungry and dirty.
Rex got lucky, though, and someone bailed him out of doggy jail and took him to a no kill shelter called the Greater Huntsville Humane Society.
The wonderful people at this shelter gave Rex the medical attention he needed, had him neutered and fully vetted.  Soon the ugly gash on his neck was healing and day by day, his ribs didn't seem to stick out quite as much.

Rex made a fully recovery and, once again,  luck was on his side and he was adopted by a very nice couple in Arkansas.
So yesterday, Rex became a passenger on the "Rescue Railroad" and, with the help of several wonderful volunteer drivers, he made the journey from Alabama to his new home in Arkansas.


Things got off to a rocky start though.   When it was time for Rex to get in the car he said "Sorry, no-can-do" and promptly laid down on the sidewalk.
After much coaxing and encouragement..............Rex remained on the ground, peacefully protesting.
Its very hard to make a 125 Anatolian do something he doesnt want to do!

Finally, Rex was lifted up and carried into the car.
Once in the vehicle, Rex was a happy traveler and watched the scenery go by as he headed west.

Unfortunately for Rex, he soon realized he was going to have to get out of this car and then get into yet "another" car.  Once again Rex said SORRY people, but I am not getting in another car and he laid down in protest.
The drivers were ready this time, though and Rex was picked up and carried to the car so he could continue on his journey.
This little scene played out the same way at each exchange.  Rex flopped his big ol' Anatolian body on the ground and once again the drivers lifted him up and carried him to the vehicle.


We are happy to report that Rex did finally make it to his destination and met his new family.
Rex is now in his new home and we are all hoping he has a very long and happy life.


A special thanks to the good people at the Greater Huntsville Humane Society for saving Rex and taking care of him until his new family was able to adopt him.


As always, a huge thank you to the amazing transport drivers who donate their time and gas, weekend after weekend, to help dogs like Rex get to their new homes.
NASRN is lucky enough to have two of the best Transport Coordinators in the world, too.  Thank you Juliana and Beth for all of your hard work.
