As some of you know, my FIL pasted away unexpectantly, a week ago last Sunday. The funeral and arrangements took over a week and spanned two continents. There are still issues to resolve which will take a few weeks possible months.

I am very sorry, but due to these family issues, we will need to cancel the SE Meet and Greet scheduled for Nov. Perhaps Holly or someone else, could take over and arrange something else for the near future?

I was really looking forward to meeting you all, please feel free to pm or email me if you'd like to come visit. I'm afraid only short notice visits are possible at this time.


This is a crosspost...

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.

If you would, please consider fostering the dog below:

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.
He is outside the Ft Worth area and we are desperate to find him a foster home.

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.

This is a crosspost, please contact the individual listed:

Please contact Tim or Renne: _tpetik@yahoo.com_ (

Phone: (810) 231-0578


Name: Dakota
Breed: Siberian Husky
Age: 6 years
Sex: Female
Fixed: Yes

Dakota is a beautiful, mild mannered Siberian Husky
who has had formal obedience training, however,
needs to be re-adopted into a child-free environment or home with older
She is best suited for an owner will walk her on a regular basis as well as
provide her with attention. She has socialized with other dogs and is
suitable for a multi-dog environment (no cats or other small animals).

Ideal environment would be some land to roam or a
nearby park to play. However, love and attention is
the most important factor.

Dakota is in good physical health and has had all
her shots and vaccinations through May 2006.

Here is a link to more information about Siberian

Please contact Tim or Renee at (810) 231-0578
for more information or a visit with Dakota.

Now to teach Pippin to dump the frozen marbles on them!! ;D

Let me know how that goes!  ;D

Stella, you have some of the best ideas!  Fortunately, my two eldest children are pretty good about getting up when they are supposed to, but with four little ones, you never know when this might come in handy.  ;)

This was cross-post from another list, so I have no information on the shelter.

My best guess would be good intentions but lack of funds, and that it probably was not a IRS recognized shelter but a sanctuary run by a private individual to provide food, water, and shelter.  That may be why many are not spayed/neutered or UTD on vaccinations.  Again, I'm just speculating here, not trying to justify...

Some of the dogs appear to be PB, and there are pretty mixes as well.  In posting, I was hoping that some BPOers might be able to help with finding homes, whether permanant or foster.

Please check out the link below. These dogs have nowhere to go...

Hi Maria,

That dog looks like an excellent prospect!  :)

Doing a search turned up this yahoo group:

Maybe they could help you?

Hoping you are able to get Bebe,

Is there a hotel nearby that allows dogs?

I know that there are some in town.  We can look into that for you, as far as which hotels, their rates, and any size restrictions.  :)

Also, if you had wanted to take a long weekend, we are 80 miles north of Panama City.  When you are coming that far you might want to think about spending a day at the beaches there.

Anybody up for a Sat. at our small farm and BBQ? DH ok'ed Sat. Nov. 11th for the day. Please post or pm if you have an interest.

We are located outside of Dothan, AL approx. 3 hrs from Mobile, 3.5 hours from Atlanta, 2 hrs from Tallahasee, 4 hrs. from Gainesville, FL.....

We have 2 small ponds for fishing, areas for riding, (but no arena and you would need to bring your own horse, lol) and can clear a couple of pastures for the dogs...


Maria, it is frustrating isn't it? Hope you find what you are looking for. I will keep my eyes and ears open and pm you if I run across anything. It can be difficult with distance and crossing borders, but it will work out if it's meant to be.

Please let us know if this dog works out for you.

Great story! ;D ;D ;D


I really do not think this dog would make a good working LGD. He/she is older and is a mix with a breed that is not an LGD breed, so there is a better than 50/50 that it would not work. The amount of time for training an adult dog who has not been working is usually prohibitive for most individuals.

I suggest that you join the following yahoo/email groups, if you are not a member already:

In your introduction let everyone know your location and needs, perhaps someone can help? There are occasionaly people closing there farms or cutting back, so adult working LGDs do become available. There are pups available more often from working dogs as well. Pups run between $150 to $1500 per dog. This depends upon whether the pup is PB, registered, OFA clearances, considered a dog of breeding quality, etc, etc.

For more information, also checkout the following links, they have been very helpful as well as files and links on PyrTalk.

I'll pm you if I think of anyone who may have an adult available...
