General Board for Big Dogs with Big Paws / Rescued a Pom!
« on: June 10, 2009, 01:39:50 pm »

I rescued a Pom on Monday from Ohio he came from a puppy mill! He is 6 months old and never lived outside his create. He is black and white and very sweet after everything he has been trough. His white fur around his rear area was stained yellow. He had never been in a car and was a perfect angel i brought a crate but never had to put him in it! I have taken him to the vet and he is under weight 6 pounds.He is painfully shy and everything is new.Right now he is in my office hanging out in his crate. The cats are very interested in him Mab was in the create checking him out.I took him to have him groomed today and they said he was a perfect angel!
Next i will have him neutered and all of his shots he does not even know what the grass is and he thinks he has to go in his crate since that is the only place he has gone. Owen has a lot to learn! Marina


Does anyone know the dosage for a 40 lb dog 500mg? Thank you!


Today as any day i find forever homes for my rescues is bitter sweet. Miles now has a family a fenced in yard and a Brother Bentley! Bentley is a Pitt / West Highland Terrier Brindle! Very cute small Miles adores his new gremlin looking brother. They take them to dog parks and they live right near the Zoo which has a large park i couldn't have ask for more.Miles is home i had difficulty from the foster mother and she is no longer my foster mother unfortunately. She went behind my back and called his new Mom and ask if she could keep him to Sunday after all the plans were made for me to pick him up this am at 9:30am for me to take him to his new home and then for me to leave town for a dog transport today and tomorrow. This is not the first time she has tried to change things around without asking me first. She informed me this am he had sour stomach and we should wait a day before taking him to his new home.She has given me problems with the other fosters including wanting to keep a dog that i promised to my Vet Tech after he went to his forever home she ask to get him back because she was the only one that could care for him. I had to explain she would have to call her up and ask for him she has kids and i wasn't going to be the one to ask for him back.He had been there a day and the kids had bonded with him she said no. I said to her you know all you would have had to do is ask me before i gave her to them. She has told me over and over she could not afford or care for a dog. I feel terrible but my plate is over flowing i have 2 Doxies coming next week and one is blind in one eye now i have to send them to another foster home.  :o :o :o :o :o

General Board for Big Dogs with Big Paws / My sick little rescue
« on: April 19, 2009, 05:50:16 am »
I had to rush my little rescue Skoshe to the vet yesterday for 2 days she had  liquid diarrhea and was throwing up. I brought her stool sample in since she should have 1 more worming. Well according to the vet after dong testes on her stool she had been poisoned from her food there were mites in the food and this is becoming a more common but if you don't know what your looking for it can be passed over. My friend also bout the same food for his dog and she also was ill but because she was larger she didn't get as ill. Skoshe was given an injection for the vomiting and 3 meds. I am glad i didn't wait to take her. She is doing pretty good today the brave little girl she is a JRT/Doxie mix

This is a note from there mother to me Aunt Marina:

Hi Marina!
Just came from the vet appointment for Milo and Otis. Otis weighs 26lbs and Milo is 25lbs!!!
The vet said that he is very impressed with their progress, growth and temperament. They were very good boys.
Afterwords, I took them to a friend's house for a puppy play date to play with their new Husky/Sheppard cross. They had a ball.
The boys are getting used to our little road trips. I took them with me to deliver a horse to Ontario. They were wonderful company and lay in the back seat or on my lap like a couple of lions!
Hope all is good with you.

They love to play with the goats!

Marrero, Louisiana - 2nd PLEA! - No Response! - Butch & Yoko Abandoned by Husband who Left Pregnant Wife!



Second plea.  Nobody has responded and these poor dogs are going into the neighbor's yard and begging for the neighbor to take them to live with her.   Neighbor already has six dogs and cannot, so she is desperately trying to get these dogs rescued. 


Do not have to be adopted together, but they are practically "joined at the hip." They are pound bound (high kill shelter) loving dogs.  Husband abandoned wife at 8 1/2 months pregnant, and she must move with relatives that cannot house dogs.



Leslie:  (at 

OR Maria Purdue:  (at  superiorenergy .com)



Two beautiful Catahoula shepherd mixes (pics attached) are the innocent victoms of a divorce.  Husband walked out on his wife while she was pregnant, he's a deadbeat and left her with no money, and she is forced to move with a relative and cannot take her two beloved dogs with her.  She is in a horrible financial bind now and is devastated that her precious dogs can no longer be with her.  Her neighbor is feeding her dogs every day because she can't even afford food for them anymore. 


Butch and Yoko are brother and sister and are extremely bonded.  Both dogs are excellent with children, VERY affectionate and loving.  They are very protective of their family, which makes them great watchdogs, but they might not do well with other dogs or cats to share their home.  They get along wonderfully, however, with the neighbor's cockapoos (four of them). 


Please circulate this for a good foster/permanent home for Butch and Yoko. 


They should not be separated, they are practically "joined at the hip." 


Marrero, Louisiana is about 14 miles from New Orleans.


Thank you for any help forthcoming.


This was sent to me by Nikki Lyster and her rescue group please read Thanks Marina

The two pit bulls that were taken in the Jones County Cruelty case desperately need a home.  We thought that we had a home lined up for them and it fell through.  GiGi is a the female and Bull is the male.  I was called to go to the home and see if I could help these two dogs in early Feb.  The two dogs were on runners in an L shape.  GiGi had a barrel for shelter, but it was held in place by two cement blocks that she could not reach.   Bull had nothing to provide him with shelter.  The neighbor, the lady that called me, told me that the two dogs would get tangled up all of the time and no one would come untangle or feed them for 3-4 days at a time.  She also told me that they laid outside with no shelter through the heat, rain, and snow.  Bull was very skinny and GiGi was not quite as bad.  The water that they had to drink was in an old cooler and the water was green and slimy.  The dogs were very friendly.  I walked over and untangled them and even looked at their teeth.  You could count every rib in Bull's body, along with every other bone he had.  Even his eye bones were sticking out.  GiGi had blood on her side because of dermatitis.  She had started eating her tail off.  I called the police, who came out and had the dogs taken away.  They were taken to animal control and a week later they were finally taken to the vet.   By this time, they had each gained about 6 lbs.  The vet gave Bull a body scale of 1.5 and GiGi a body scale of 2.5.  The body scale of a healthy dog is 4-5.  These dogs were in animal control for a total of 25 days before being released to me.  I had 3 days to find them a home or they would be put to sleep in the shelter.  I found someone willing to take them in, but because of transport issues, the rescue fell through.  These dogs have been spayed and neutered, have had all of their shots, and are both heart worm negative.  They showed no food aggression to each other and seem to be good with other dogs.  Please help me find someone that could take them.  I am so full that I have no pens open.  They do not have to go together, but it would be preferred. 
Please pass this along..  The dogs are at Gordon Animal Clinic in Gordon, Ga. They have been their for about 2 weeks now.  They need a home.  Please help me find someone to show them how life is supposed to be.  If you can not take them but would like to help out, donations can be made at Gordon Animal Clinic for the boarding fees.  It is getting costly.  The number is 478-628-5376.  GiGi and Bull are on the GARD account.
Thank you everyone for your help and concern with these two dogs.Thanks,
Nikki Lyster 478-932-5889 OR 478-538-8086

Bernese Mountain Dog

Adult, Male

Chipper (Chipper Mountain King) is a 3 yr old Berner. He is in good health, has all his shots and is ideal weight @ 120lbs. He loves car rides and 30 minute walks in the park. He won the title of 'King' of the first annual Wayland Dog Parade. He is an indoor dog, but has free roam in his fenced in yard. I need to find a home for him as I am relocating and cannot bring him along. If you would like to meet him, contact me and we can walk him in the park. I am asking $25 (yes 25) so I can find him a loving home.

General Board for Big Dogs with Big Paws / For all who rescue...
« on: April 09, 2009, 06:18:04 am »
People who work animal rescue are some of the strongest, most courageous people that I know. They see and experience things that most people don’t even want to hear about. They often stand strong for themselves, for the animals, and for those around them, and shed their tears in private after the rescue is complete. At times they are ridiculed for their decisions to stand up against the cruelty of man and are chastised when they choose to

speak out against hideous forms of animal cruelty that is prevalent in our society today.


This essay is to help our friends in animal rescue keep a good attitude, be compassionate toward the people who do not know how to be compassionate, and to keep focused on

bringing peace and kindness to our world on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves...


If you worry that you have not made a difference, you have, for only those who do not worry about it have not.

If you feel overwhelmed, if the weight of their problems is too heavy to bear, remember it is a shared burden and the strength of numbers can accomplish much.

If you think society and government are blind, it only serves to remind that we need to change one mind at a time, one law after another.

We effect change by cooperation, not by isolation. If you consider that we cannot save them all, and what difference does one make?, you ought to know the joy of the one who is saved.

Mourn those we cannot save, it is a eulogy to their being.

Do not let their loss be in vain.

Be kind to yourself; remember your needs and those of your family and friends of every species.

Strive to be happy and healthy.

You are needed.

Achieving balance in life is a lifelong struggle.

We who help those who do not have all that they need should be among the most grateful

for what we do have.

Be proud of your accomplishment s, not your opinions.

The quality of your efforts is more important than the quantity.

Forgive your own deficiencies – sometimes your caring is sufficient.

Everyone can do something, it is up to you to do the thing you can.

A kind word and a gentle touch can change a life.

If anger wells up within you, because people are the problem, remember your humanity and that people are also the solution.

Concentrate on specific needs, pay attention to the individual - they make up the whole.

See beyond the unlovable, the unattractive, the impure and the wounded - see that their

spirit is as deserving as the rest.

Help them heal. 

Their eyes are windows to their soul and the mirror of your sincerity.

All species, all beings, share this Earth in a chain of life.

Care more about what makes us alike than what separates us.

Policies, rules and regulations are not infallible.

Apply them judiciously, interpret them wisely.

No decision based purely on money is ever the right one.

Listen to your heart. Sometimes we have to do that which we are most afraid of.

Be true to yourself and your beliefs.

Family may abandon you, friends may disappoint you, strangers will ridicule you.

People shun what they do not understand.

Help them to understand - kindly, softly, gently.

Those who do not respect all life are to be pitied.

Often the wrongdoer is as in need of help as his victims.

Forgive, then teach by example.

Educate yourself or you cannot hope to teach others.

No action based in hatred is ever right and anger drowns out wisdom.

Yours may be a voice crying in the wilderness, make it a voice to be respected.

Listen more than you talk, be courteous and reliable.

Learn to ask for help.

Never waiver from the truth.

Know that it takes a lot of strength to cry.

And with every defeat, we learn.

All Creation celebrates that which is in its own best interest.

The Children are our hope - nurture them.

Nature is our legacy - protect it.

The Animals are our brethren – learn from them.

Your rewards will not be material, but they will be meaningful, and the courage of your convictions can survive anything.

We are small boats cast adrift on a cruel sea, but someday the tide will turn toward a safe harbor.

No matter how dark the storm clouds, or deep the pain of heartbreak – never forget:

We are their heroes.

General Board for Big Dogs with Big Paws / Happy Easter!!!!!!!!
« on: April 07, 2009, 12:55:41 pm »
Happy Easter!!!!


Please consider this an urgent and immediate plea for a number of highly adoptable dogs at Lafayette Animal Control Center (a.k.a. Roicy Duhon Animal Control) in Lafayette, Louisiana.

For the next three weeks (until Monday, April 27), the shelter will not be offering any dogs for adoption to private individuals. Adoptions to the public will be temporarily halted for reasons explained below, but right now, there are over 30 dogs that are available to be pulled by legitimate rescue groups during this time.

As an animal control facility, LACC accepts every animal that is it asked to take in, regardless of health or circumstance. In recent months, the shelter has seen an increase in the number of unhealthy dogs, both in the general community, and coming in to the shelter. During this time, the staff has continued to follow (and has improved) protocols and procedures to control the spread of illness and disease among the dogs. They are now taking this opportunity (the next three weeks) to further improve the dogs' physical environment and health by implementing a number of new initiatives. These will include a new vaccination protocol; new intake, quarantine and housing policies;  and an intensive and thorough shelter disinfection. In addition, they are finalizing a community volunteer program which will include hands-on volunteer activity at the shelter and post-adoption follow-up and support.

Right now, there are over 30 dogs we are trying to place with rescue - to give the shelter the space and time it needs to complete the improvements. There may be more in the coming weeks, but right now these are the dogs we're working on - and they're urgent. They have all been vaccinated with DAPP and Bordatella (some twice) and de-wormed. They have been observed to monitor their health and each appears healthy.

The Shelter Director has asked us to help move these dogs out to rescue, rather than euthanizing them for space during this time, but LACC is a VERY high-intake shelter so it is URGENT that we get these dogs out quickly.

You can see photos of the dogs here : 100032

As we get more information on each of the dogs, we will include it with their photos. Right now, the dogs available include purebred Boxers, a Pekingese, Rat Terriers (including a RT/Dachshund? mix with her four 7-week-old babies), Lab puppies, Chihuahuas, more Dachshund mixes, little shaggy Terriers, Min Pins, a Border Collie, and many many more.....

Please check out their photos and if you can help, please let us know ASAP! If you need more information on any of the dogs, email us right away. We'll do everything we can to help get these dogs to rescue.

Cat adoptions will continue as normal during this period.

Lance is the pom I rescued never been groomed or given any attention to. He is quite the little love and very smart I had taken him to Bryce's school and they groomed him thank you Oh My Dog!

After that he looked like a whole different dog! He had so much fur you couldn't see his  :o  not sure how he went? Everyone kept on saying you should keep him I really would have liked to and he bonded to me quickly but my 3 wouldn't have really been that thrilled with it and I had to remind myself of that. The cats liked him and under all that fur he only weighed 11 pounds! One of my vet techs gave him a loving home and I couldn't be happier!
