Candy Roo - Jean, NV Crossed the Rainbow Bridge and will be dearly missed.
Meet Candy Roo! She is an 12 yr old, 55 lb, spayed female grandma Pittie.
Sweet, easy going 12 year old Candy Roo is a wonderful and loving dog who has lived in the shelter since 2014. That is no place to spend your golden years!! She is so ready and deserving of a forever family. She has slowed down from arthritis but is still up for short little walks to keep her old joints moving. Candy Roo is a sweet old girl who likes to play a little with squeaky toys, take naps, loves bath time, being brushed, and hanging out with her peeps in a calm quiet household . Candy loves her kiddie pool and will sometimes fall asleep in it with her head on the side! She's like a loveable hippo!
A home with another older mellow male dog would be ok (but she'd be happy to be by her self) and older children are okay as well, they just need to be gentle with her because she's a grandma. We don’t know how she would do with cats. She is currently on joint supplements. Beautiful Candy Roo has been in a shelter environment for so long and it is really taking its toll on her. It would be the greatest day ever if we could find her a loving family.
From the looks of her belly, she was used for breeding. She now has mammary tumors as well as arthritis. Mammary tumors are generally cancerous and prone to metastasis but there are no current signs of metastasis and she has been very stable.

Jack - Jean, NV (5/10/20)
Meet Jack! He is a 12 yr old, 80 lb neutered male Pittie.
Gentleman Jack's Hobbies: Netflix and chill, getting belly rubs, playing with toys, a lover of everyone he meets.
Favorite Food: A Kong stuffed full of cookies and peanut butter.
About Jack: He loves squeaky toys and cookies. His activities include playing tug and belly rubs. He is super easy going and just wants a family or a person to hang out with for his remaining months. Jack has been through a lot but never lost his love and trust in humans. Aside from some arthritis that he takes a joint supplement for, Jack is still active and happy to play ball or go for short walks. Oh and it wouldn't hurt him to lose a few pounds.
He is best as an only dog with all the attention. We also recommend a home with only kids over 12 yrs.
Our Foster Forever Program means we pay for Jack's food, supplies and Vet care, you provide the love. Adopting or fostering Jack means giving him the love and comfort he craves and deserves for the rest of his days. An application and home check are required. Particularly for fostering, Jack would need to stay relatively local to his rescue.
For all information about Jack, please contact: Stacie Hummel of Lone Woof Rescue : (702) 496-7885.
Gilly - Las Vegas, NV (10/11/20)
Meet Geliebte better known as Gilly or G! She is a 10 yr old, 80 lb, female German Shepherd.
Gilly has had a rough life and ended up at a local shelter. There, she was found to have a mammary carcinoma and hormone based cysts so they reached out to us for help. All have been removed and she requires no further treatment at this time except love and good care. She gets healthier every day and is putting on weight and getting the most beautiful coat again. She needs a home and family of her own.
There is honestly no definitive time before the cancer could return. It could be several months or even years, possibly. That part is mostly up to Mother Nature but there are holistic/homeopathic options out there that can help with long term care and health and there are things that can be done medically as well when that time comes and it does return. What we CAN tell you is that she is a happy, loving girl who adores her furry foster siblings and enjoys being a part of a pack.
She is wonderful with humans she meets and is a calm, gentle girl by nature. Don’t let her age or what she went through fool you. This girls got both sugar and spice according to her foster mama. She likes to do a bit of roughhousing with her packmate even! She’s a tad picky about her food, but hey, she deserves a bit of pampering. She even enjoys playing ball and seems to like water and loves a good car ride. She has a youthful exuberance that makes her a joy to be around. She’s got so much spunk and life left in her and we at VSR want to see her live it out in total comfort and happiness, going on adventures and having lots of treats.
Think you’re up for lots of love and giggles and walks and the most amazing new best buddy? When you meet G, you will realize why she means so much to us and why we just had to change her story to a Yappily Ever After. You can start the application process to be her forever best friend at www.vegasshepherdrescue.com. Reach out and let us know you want to meet her.
Any interested adopters with dogs must be willing to bring their dog to Las Vegas to meet Gil and drive her home. If there are no other pets in the household, we are willing to meet half way for mileage more than 150.
