JAX is a 10-12 year old sheltie who was turned in as a "stray" to a large animal control facility. His bloodwork shows that he has something going on in his system. He’s currently on a second round of antibiotics. If this doesn’t correct the problem, then we know that he has cancer or some other disease vs. an infection. Jax has a home waiting for him as soon as we figure out what his needs will be. It’s pretty clear that he was turned into the shelter and was not a stray at all. The owner probably knew that she had a sick dog on her hands and didn’t want to pay for the vet care that was needed. It would be nice to know his vet history and at least his age and name so we could have some baseline to go by.
SHEP - This pretty guy came to us from a rescue that was full of shelties and asked if I had room for him and another non-sheltie (already adopted). Shep is an Austrailian Shepherd. He is about 8 months old and full of energy and also full of the dickens, as my mom used to say. He is about 50 pounds and loves all dogs, a scheduled neutering should help him to play more appropriately. Right now, all he wants to do is hump and no one here appreciates that type of play. He has quickly learned that sleeping in a crate indoors is better than sleeping outdoors. He was great for his bath and would need to go to an obedience class with whomever decides to adopt him. He doesn’t have basic manners and it seems like now he thinks it’s a game if he can jump on me without me catching and correcting him. He’s fast!! So maybe there’s some agility in his future? Shep would be hard to handle without a fenced in yard, but the right person could handle it.
As a rescue organization, our obligation is to the dogs in our care. It is in the best interest of the dogs who come here for us to maintain confidentiality of the people who call us for help rehoming their dogs.
As a result, you may notice some dogs posted on this site without their name. Unfortunately, breeders who are not supportive of rescue have watched our website and if they knew the dog by name, instead of praising rescue for helping a dog that might have otherwise ended up at a shelter or euthanized, proceeded to contact the people who surrendered the dog and harass them.
We are not interested in getting involved in (written or oral) contract disputes between breeders and the people to whom they sell puppies. It is certainly not part of our mission to enforce any contracts for them.
Our #1 obligation is the well-being of the dogs who come to us. In the best interest of the dogs in our program, our loyalty is to the people who adopt dogs from our rescue, and the ones who call us to help with their dogs.
