8/28/16:  Well we found out I have an excuse for being overweight and my thyroid was low.  The medicine is very inexpensive and I like to take it in a hotdog.  The heartworms have been treated with no complications.  I get along great with the others here at the rescue and no problem with the housetraining.

7/23/16: My person could no longer care for me so I was on my way to the animal shelter when the rescue stepped in. I have lived outside all my life and love this air conditioned house so much I slept for 6 hours after I arrived. My coat is matted, a bit overweight and I have a light case of heartworms that will need to be treated. Please keep me in your prayers as I adjust to this new, wonderful life.

What wonderful people to care about me.  Thank you Carol Clasen, Mary Witul, Pam Barron, Susan Huneycutt, Kimberly Luddington, Ruth Cummins, June Evans, Marian Ridge, Barbara Minakakis, Lizabeth Meyer, Karen Warren, Debbie Olsakovsky, Nancy Covey and George Jensen II for helping with my medical cost.

If you will rub my belly I will roll on my back and grin at you. I am housetrained, don’t need a crate, good with the other dogs and cats are ok with me.

9/5/16: What a special Memorial Day this is for me. When all my medical work is complete I will be going home with Ann and my new pal Tucker. I’m being treated for tick disease, will then have heartworm treatment and be neutered. So it will be about 2 months before I can go to my new home. I still need your prayers as I get better and look forward to the day Ann comes to take me home. What a long way I have come from being a stray.

8/28/16: Insects have been very mean to me over the years with the ticks giving me lyme disease and the mosquitos giving me a light case of heartworms.

I’m a real sweet, gentle guy that really loves a doggie bed. Please keep me in your prayers.

There is so much food here and can you believe they serve it twice a day? They are guessing me to be between 4 and 6 years old and I will be going to the vet this week for a bath. One of those nasty ticks did give me lyme disease and I am on antibiotics for that. A sweet, gentle kind of guy that is very much housetrained. Please check back to see how I am doing.

The rescue folks are guessing me to be about 9 years old.

I have no front teeth making it hard for me to pick up my food. There is no doubt I was a beauty in my day and please check back to see my progress as I am restored to good health.

So good to be here with folks who care.  Thank you Ron Cohn, Nancy Gooding, Kim E. Moore, Lizabeth Meyer, Karen J Creager, George Jensen, Carol Lightcap, Shirley Treichel, Judy Arey and Deborah Brown for helping with my medical cost.

9/3/16: This is what they call one of those transport failures. You see Jeff & Pam picked me up from the animal shelter and brought me to the rescue. After going home and thinking it over they decided they wanted to adopt me so today I am going home with the Creamer’s. I will have some sheltie ladies to play with and also the cats. They have adopted several collies over the years and Jeff even fixed Miss Jean’s faucet when it froze up. Dad and I are going to be very handy around the house together.

Travelers

 

 

 

 

 

 

7/22/16: They call us the travelers because we were found together walking right up to Miss Jean’s house which clearly shows we are smart. She took us in and tried to find our owners but no one came forward to claim us. No real surprise there as neither of us had been neutered. I wish we could tell you our story and know you wonder if we escaped together or met up somewhere on the road. Either way we know even though we are not collies we are in a real good place where we will be well taken care of.

I am the little man and when we were on the road Juno the husky took care of me. The vet is guessing me to be about 2 years old and a nice weight of 11 pounds. Doing great in the house and love sleeping on the bed. Since I am so small I get carried around a lot. No problem with housetraining and the other dogs are very nice to me. A loving, little fellow who likes to snuggle and follow you around.

8/23/16: Going home with the Wright’s today and they have husky experience. This is my new gal pal, Fenway and she is nine years old. I have pretty much made myself at home here on the couch and I get to sleep on the bedroom floor. Fenway and I are playing well together and getting along fine. I sure picked the right driveway to walk up when we were lost. Thanks everyone for helping this husky boy find this great home.

Juno x-ray

 

8/1/16: It sure has been a busy week for me with getting neutered and going to the orthopedic surgeon to have my leg checked out. Turns out at some point in my life I had a femoral head osteotomy which is the removal of the “ball” part of the ball-and-socket that makes up the hip joint. My folks didn’t do the rehab with me afterwards and why I limp. This leg is a tad shorter than the other one but you wouldn’t notice. Doing great here at the rescue and enjoy playing with the other dogs.

I wish we could tell you our story and know you wonder if we escaped together or met up somewhere on the road. Either way we know even though we are not collies we are in a real good place where we will be well taken care of.

When we were on the road I had to walk real slow so the little man could keep up. The vet is guessing me to be between 1 and 2 years old and a nice weight of 52 pounds. I do have a slight limp on my right, back leg because of an injury when I was younger which is a little late to fix. It doesn’t slow me down any and I enjoy playing with the other dogs. I don’t even mind the cat and have the sweetest nature. They fell in love with me at the vet.

I don’t need a crate, weigh about 80 pounds and I’m not fat. I have been very much loved and cared for but it is time to go to my forever home.
