I wish I could help this poor boy, but because he needs a pet home and because Captain is intact (pending sufficient weight gains to safely undergo anesthesia), I cannot.  :( Even if you feel like you are far away but can do this otherwise, please contact them.  Anatolian rescue is really good about lining up transportation .


FT WORTH TX--- We are literally BEGGING for help for this poor dog. He is in desperate need of a foster or adoptive home. He is currently being boarded at a vet clinic but we do not have the funds to board him any longer. He "had" a foster but it fell through.
Tommy is a very sweet boy, he is good with other dogs and very good with people. He needs to be in a companion/pet home, he is not a candidate for a working home.

If anyone can help Tommy, even short term, please, please let us know.

We are desperate to find a foster home for this boy! He is good with other dogs and good with people. He's not good with livestock. He will make a great companion dog, he is super sweet.

Transporting & Traveling With Dogs / Transport for rescues/other

Wasn't sure if I should post here or under rescue.


Many of you know me or know of the rescue group that I work with (National Anatolian Shepherd Rescue Network .

I don't know about you folks but with the price of gas being what it is, filling transports from TX to or AZ to CA has been really difficult. People who, in the past, were willing to drive just can't afford to help out anymore.

To help alleviate this problem my husband and I have recently become licensed with the USDA as a Transport Carrier and we are hoping to offer affordable transport to rescue dogs within the states of AZ, CA, NM and TX.

Unfortunately, we do have jobs, kids, and animals here at home so this is not a "full time job" for us, rather something we will do once a month. If we can get enough reservations to make the trip ecomically feasible we will make a trip in October from Phoenix to LA and then to the Bay Area, and then back again to LA and back home to Phoenix picking up and dropping off dogs along the route. This would be over a two day time span.

We have purchased a new 24 ft Haulmark box trailer, it is climate controlled and has a drop down ramp on the back. All of our kennels are new Vari Kennels. We do have several Jumbo sized kennels for the giant breed guys/gals. The trailer has been inspected and approved by the USDA and we are set up in accordance with the Animal Welfare Act.

We charge a flat fee of $150. If gas keeps dropping and gets back down to around $2 a gallon we hope to be able to drop the fee to $125.

If you have any dogs that you might need to move to/from the CA and AZ areas, please let me know.
We are also planning a trip from Phoenix to Dallas, then back from Dallas to Los Angeles.

If you have any questions, I am more than happy to answer them.

Kuvasz Discussions / Had a "Blonde moment"...
« on: August 22, 2006, 08:42:56 am »
It lasted for approximately 3 months. Sapphire is now 12 lbs. overweight!  :o Yes, Sapphire was on strict crate rest to allow a ligament/skeletal muscular injury to heal, however "mom" forgot to reduce the amount of food give. We went to the vet today and she weighed in at 102 lbs. So, we now officially have a fat pup. Wish I could take those 12 lbs and give them to Captain.  ::) Any who, this bad mom is now putting that pup on a diet and increasing her exercise!

Anything Non-Dog Related / African Grey Parrots?
« on: August 18, 2006, 12:14:30 pm »
The little mom and pop hardware shop is nearby closing today. :'( I stopped by and took them some homemade cookies. The business has a very talkative 11 year-old African Grey Parrot. No, he does not curse or swear, but loves to visit. Any who... they asked me if I'd take him and give him a good home.

Hmmmm... these birds are very bright, live to be about 50 years old, need a min. 45 min. interaction per day, special diet, and lots of toys. I don't know. What do you all think? Anybody have any experience with these birds? A 39 year commitment for 45 min. a day is HUGE. My dh was interested, but I believe he would like to teach it cuss. :o
MEN! ::) lol.



This VERY young great pyrenees will die on THURSDAY, 7/27, unless someone can
SAVE him. I'm only crossposting and do not work at this shelter, nor do I live
in the area of this shelter. But, if you can rescue this dog, and if there is
ANYTHING I can do to network and/or help with transport, I'm very willing to do

Thank you.

Could You Help Magoo?

Dear Best Friends Members,

Magoo definitely has a unique way of eating his dinner.

First he tips over his bowl of kibble, spilling it all over the floor.
Then he selects one piece out of the mess, chases it around the floor with his
nose for awhile, corners it and - finally - eats it. Then he selects another
piece to nose around.

Boy, at this rate I bet it takes hours for Magoo to eat his meals!

"Actually, it does take quite a while," says Magoo's rescue person, Leslie
Hunt with Companimals in Maryland. She rescued this handsome Korean Jindo
when he was 3 months old - he had been dumped at the SPCA by his breeder
because he was blind and/or losing his balance.

This odd early behavior may have been caused by head trauma, but Leslie and
her vet aren't sure. Whatever happened to Magoo, it not only impaired his
sight but also seems to be the reason for a number of other quirky behaviors.

Magoo does everything s-l-o-w-l-y, and it takes him quite a while to adjust
to new people and new situations. He can go up and down a small set of
stairs, but so far has only conquered going up when dealing with a full staircase.

He does not like being picked up or having his feet off the ground and will
flail around in a panic. He gets along with other dogs as long as they are
gentle, but often merely co-exists with them rather than interacts.

"We also can use a harness to guide him but does not like to walk on a leash
- he'll put the breaks on all fours," Leslie says. "And thought he likes to
go to new places and meander around, as far as a planned trip from point A to
point B, however... Well, he doesn't seem to understand the concept."

Most of the time, he seems to be off in his own world. But Leslie says he's
a happy guy, and he does grow accustomed to people after some time - and will
even come over for a pet or two and to say "Hello."

"Goo" is a gentle, sweet boy - but his odd behavior has made it hard for
Leslie to find the right person for him.

If you know someone who just might be a match for this unusual boy, please
contact Leslie at: _companimals@earthlink.net_
( (

Please also feel free to post the attached flyer in areas of your community
where dog-lovers can see it.

Thank you in advance for anything you can do to help Magoo - and as always,
thank you for working to help animals everywhere.

Best Regards,

Remembering those no longer with us. / "The Big Paws We Have Known"
« on: July 23, 2006, 11:34:47 am »
I tried to get some of you to come to chat last Sunday, to catch up on the last 6 months which I was mostly MIA. But, I also would like those of you who have lost a Big Paw, an opportunity to write a chapter for a book.

The book would be a "chicken soup" type book with each chapter being devoted to one of the big paws we loved and lost from members of this board. Each person would write and select pictures as well. I am certain that we could find volunteers to edit for you if needed.

Once completed we will seek a publisher. If none can be found, we will publish ourselves. If any profit is made, 10% goes to charity and 10% to help support this website. All remaining profits will be divided equally by the authors.

If you are interested please pm me. I'll set another time for an organizational meeting in either Chat or at PalTalk.

Hope we have a few takers... it should be a great experience for all involved!
