SAVING EROL UPDATE
12/30/10

Erol had his MRI yesterday and the results were normal.
Dr. Brofman at Carolina Vet Specialists consulted with a neurologist
and they diagnosed Erol as having an uncommon strain of Coonhound Paralysis.
This is a "good news/bad news" update:
The good news is his prognosis is good and he will hopefully make a full recovery.
The bad news is it may take months before he is able to walk again.
The good news is he has a great new foster home where he can recover
and receive the extra level of care that he will need.
The bad news is its 700 miles away.
Good news is we are very hopeful on being able to set up transport for him!
The bad news is his vet bill is very high but the good news is
we are about half way to raising the money we need to pay for it!

Right now Erol is still at the vet hospital bc his previous foster mom
is in the middle of a family crisis and she is unable to care for him.
The vet techs at the clinic are very nice and are taking good care of him.
He's off IV fluids now and his hospital care is down to $40 per day.
Erol is being hand fed and still has an appetite!
Considering all he's been through, he is doing as well as can be expected.

I will post updates as things progress.
Thank you all for your prayers and support!

The Adventures of Ayla

Back in June of this year we took in a litter of new born pups
just days after they were born.
The pups have all been adopted now and I wanted to share
a letter I received the other day from Karin, who adopted Ayla,
one of the female pups from this litter.
I enjoyed it so much I thought you all would enjoy it too.

AYLA....
she's a gutsy girl, stubborn as all get-out, funnier than funny and a complete love-muffin!
 She's happy, healthy and extremely talented for such a young dog: in fact,
 i'm considering renting her out to the archeology school at berkeley for excavation duties:
she is VERY good!!!
she also has office skills that i discovered one morning
 when she got up before me to open the mail.
 in addition,
 she a skilled gardener: especially with houseplants: always pruning!
and her construction skills are coming along nicely:
she's very helpful, reports my carpenter who is working on my basement
to finish a room and a bathroom.
(its taking a little longer than anticipated... hmmmm)
short of my favourite (and only) cashmere sox (WAAAAAAAAAAA),
a pair of headphones and a dogbed,
she's not eaten anything (that i know of)
 i attribute this to her extremely active social life:
at least once/day to an off-leash park, aka dog-spa, for a minimum 1 hour hike and full-body mud-mask;
 in addition to 2 shorter walks per day,
going to work with me at least 2/week and
 going for 2+ hr hikes with my friend tanja and her pack
 (min. 8 shepherds) 2/week.
of course on weekends we do 'special' outings with other dogfriends,
for example getting completely lost in redwood park with jackie and oz (her brother)
 and turning one-hr outings into 3 hr ones
so that's the status here.



 
AYLA LOVES MUD

ALL TUCKERED OUT
LIFE IS BUSY FOR THIS ANATOLIAN PUP

"QUARTERMAIN"
is home for the holidays

Being involved with rescue can be very sad and frustrating.
Here's a little good news to try and balance out the bad news.
Quartermain was dumped in the shelter several months ago
bc he supposedly killed a chicken.
Soon after arriving in foster care he needed tplo surgery.
Being over 5 yrs old and having had this surgery
really stacked the deck against his chances of being adopted.
But somehow his foster mom, Shelley, with Dogs Only Inc in Little Rock
managed to find a loving home for Q-Man
who accepted him "as is".

Wishing you all the best Q-Man, you deserve it!
ARTESIA NEW MEXICO
UPDATE:
Unbelievably, this all came together in two hours!
We have a foster for all three girls in Phoenix
AND
our Trans Coordinator, Beth, was able to find
a rescue person in Artesia who is going to pick up the girls tonight
and hold them till we set up a transport!!
YAY!
I, for one, am doing the Happy Dog Dance!!
These girls are all in the shelter in Artesia NM and
are slated for death in the morning
We have nowhere for them to go in that short of time period.
PLEASE
if anyone can help, even short term, let us know!!



N/W CONNECTICUT
EXPERIENCED LIVESTOCK GUARDIAN DOGS LOOKING FOR LOVING HOMES
Meet Miss Daisy and her daughter, Buttercup



 Daisy and several other Livestock Guardian Dogs came from OK with a herd of 100 goats.
It was a "buy 100 goats, get livestock guardian dogs for free" deal. The farmer who purchased them ended up selling all the goats and left the dogs without a job and
they were given away as free.


Daisy and her pups were rescued by a local woman who raises goats and is familiar with LGDs.
Daisy is now ready to find her "forever" home.
She is available for adoption along with her 7 mo female pup, Buttercup.
Both girls are very good guardian dogs. They are good with goats and sheep but Daisy is not good with poultry or cats.
They are friendly with people and will walk on a leash and know basic commands.

They are very bonded to one another and Buttercup has been tutored under her mother's guidance so they make a very good pair and deterrent to predators.

"MARCUS"
Centerville VA

Marcus, an extremely intelligent, athletic, and beautiful 2 year old, is looking for a forever home.
 He came from Istanbul, Turkey, where a rescue group found him emaciated and ill.
Thanks to his foster care in the US, he is now in perfect health, with a gorgeous coat and amazing teeth.

He is loving, house-broken and crate-trained.
To manage his fear/aggression towards other dogs, Marcus received six weeks of individual training
and has proven highly trainable.
 He still has aggression and dominance issues to work out, so Marcus would do best in the home of an experienced dog owner, with a fenced yard, and no other dogs or other animals.
He needs an owner who is prepared to act as his leader and he would do well with further training.
 He easily walks on a leash and hardly ever barks.
Marcus has loads of energy and enjoys lots of play and exercise time.
He loves balls and toys that squeak.
He is truly a special dog who will reward his owner immeasurably for the time put into his care.
He is currently being fostered in Centerville, VA.
