DOGS

Alabama

Reba - Tanner, AL

Meet Reba!  She is an 8 yr old, 70 lb, female Cattle Dog.

 

From her rescue:  Oh Reba, we love you so much. My heart just does not understand why you are still here. It has been 8 years since you were found as a tiny baby, hiding behind a dumpster at the local gas station. You and your sister, Pearl....such cute little polka dot puppies. One red and one silver. You were typical spunky, rowdy puppies.

 

As you grew, we soon realized we had trouble. Two sisters that both had dominant personalities. So we had to separate you. Pearl seemed a little more out going and soon learned to enjoy being with other dogs and found her forever home. But you remained behind.

 

You just really have issues or fear of other dogs. As you are getting older, a few problems will be with you for a life time. You have endured 2 ear surgeries due to allergies. All you need to stay well is a daily allergy pills and routine ear cleaning!  But when potential adopters hear this, you once again get passed up.

 

I wish people could see your inner puppy. The way you love to play with your Kong! I wish they could see the swing in your rear when you go for a walk. I wish they could see the love in your eyes that I have seen for eight years. You just want to be someone’s best friend and you are patiently waiting.  Maybe now somebody will step up and invite you into their forever home?

Nora - Tanner, AL

Meet Nora!  She is a 7 yr old, 65 lb female Pittie.

This precious girl was brought to us late one Sunday afternoon. A family had been enjoying a great day out on the river and were headed home. They looked ahead in the road and there stood the saddest sight of a dog they had ever seen. She was extremely skinny and it appeared she was nursing puppies. It had started to rain so they made a judgement call and picked her up. They didn’t know if there was babies out there or not, but she desperately need help.

 

Once we cleaned her up and got her a warm, soft bed and a belly full of food, our thoughts wondered to possible babies out there. Early the next morning, we went back to where she was found and after hours of searching...no puppies. Now we assume her puppies were weaned and probably sold and poor mom was of no use to them anymore. So they dumped her in the middle of the road in a deserted wooded area.

 

Nora was safe now and we promised her lots of love and always a full tummy! Nora appeared to have lived her life on a chain. She had several lumps around her neck from bearing the weight of a heavy chain. One lump appeared extra large and we asked the vet to check it out. It was removed and the biopsy came back cancer. We were told this kind could pop up any time and any where.

 

Sure enough, a few months later, more lumps were removed. Time after time, we continued to discover more and more were removed. Nora grew very tired of the constant stitches and e-collars until one day, she let us know that she had had enough. She destroyed every e-collar we put on her and she frantically chewed out every stitch. We knew then, enough was enough.

 

We are constantly faced with the choice of quality verses quantity of life. We made our call. Nora is a VERY happy girl. She loves to sniff around the yard, enjoys the company of other dogs although not all dogs like her due to her over excited play. Still to this day, food is her best friend and she is the first to let you know if meal time is late. Who knows about her skin lumps, she says they don’t bother her. But we chose to put that in the past, live for today and give her another cookie.
