Ok, by now it's a well known fact I'm very rescue oriented, I hate seeing anything suffer! For years now I've been on an e-mail list from the local Humane Society, when they get in "unadoptable" dogs, they sent out an e-mail to rescue groups asking them if any of them would be willing to take them in. Well, normally I will only take Afghans and Italian Greyhounds as much as I'd like to take them all! Well, this last list must have found me in an especially soft mood, there where FIVE dogs that really tugged my heart strings hard. An 8 year old ****er with tumors that they suspect have already spread to his lungs, so he's not going to have a long life, but deserves to live out the last of his days in comfort in a loving home, a 6 year old ****er that came in with him that was so badly matted that she has massive skin infections from the matted hair, a 8 1/2 year old ****er/poodle mix that has mild occasional seizures, a 13 year old doxie - Nothing wrong with her, she's just older, and a 10 year old doxie that also has mild occasional seizures and has some bad disks in her back. Now I'll admit I'm a sucker to begin with for ****ers, I had a ****er mix as my first small dog, she was rescued from a humane society, only had her a few months before she crossed the bridge but I'll never forget my Annie. Because of her that soft spot grew and when I saw the faces of these 5 I couldn't ignore it, so I started sending out some e-mails, making some calls, and within a couple of hours, I started getting calls and e-mails back! Wouldn't you know, in just a few hours of work ALL FIVE OF THESE DOGS ARE NOW SAFE! The ****er is going to a rescue in Arizona that has a rep for taking these special needs dogs that don't have long left, a doxie rescuer in Arizona is taking both of the doxies, a home right near me is taking the 6 year old ****er, and the ****-a-poo I'm taking and putting in one of my foster homes until I can find a good forever home for him. I can't believe how quickly and easily I have found places for all of these 5 dogs, I am always amazed at rescue people when they come together to help animals!!!!!!!
