Gettting Ready for our BIG Day!!!

Busy doesn’t even explain how I feel–tomorrow is the vendor show at Dakota City from 10 –2 and we are having a table for 12 Hills Dog Rescue.  We are getting busy with our paperwork, photo album and a basket for the raffle.  Should be a fun day for us, though and a great opportunity for people to meet us and find out more about our rescue.  Guess I had better get busy and take more pictures for the album–Just maybe we will have some doggies adopted.  I do hope to have Clover—our Mascot present, so she can meet everyone.  Hope to see you there!


Ready tor the Vendor Show???

Not really–need to take more pictures and decide who is going with us on the 21st. Oh, did I forget to mention that we will be attending a Vender show on Sat. April 21st at Dakota City, NE., fire hall?  We have never done this before, so I am a little taken back on what to do first to be prepared.

Well, I already made some delicious homemade dog treats.  We did a taste comparison and I feel the peanut butter ones were the most liked by our dogs.  I did make some bacon balls, so those will probably go quickly.also.

Back to the preparations—I will need to take pictures or copy and put descriptions with each dog for a photo album I want to take along. We are going to have several of the puppies there, and also one or 2 big Dogs.  I think that Sarge will be one going. He loves everyone—and should do well in a crowd. 

Better sign off and get busy on the photo albums. Hope to see you there—it starts at 9:00 on Sat. 21st.

Two Steps Forward——-One Back???

Sometimes we feel that way at 12 Hills Dog Rescue.  Right now, we have too many big dogs, and need a way to move them to another area–where they may have a better chance at adoption.

But on the bright side–Bandit found his new forever home this week as well as Brownie.  Bandit’s family love him already–and hopefully Brownie will fit in to her family nicely also.

Then we received a new little gal.  She looks like she is around 5 months old. What a beauty with all 4 white socks.  Her name is Sonya and she is a orange color with a white blaze on her chest.  Better yet, she was in a home with children, so that is an extra plus. Will take pictures today and post one soon. Just wanted to keep you updated on our progress and get the word out about the beautiful big dogs we still have waiting for homes.

This Shouldn’t Be Happening!

Poor little gal came walking out of the dirty creek, along side her house. She is malnourished, mangy, and what else we are unsure of at this time. She was brought to us by a local police officer. She received a warm bath and treatment and was combed to remove all the scales.  She is a pretty little gal that will need at least a month of treatment before she is ready to go.  I named her Sarah. She appears to be the sister to a little black guy that came here in March.

This puppy has been very neglected. The owner should not be able to have another dog–and we hope that the owner will receive a fine for neglect and abuse.

Neuter Day at 12 Hills

Another 2 males are done–neutered that is.  Now they should be ready for their new families and forever homes.  It seems that their attitudes become so much calmer after their surgery.  Sometimes it takes almost a month to see the difference, and sometimes it happens in a few days.Regardless, both Maximus and Kevin had their surgery today and will hopefully be adopted in the near future.

There are some who believe that male dogs should never be neutered, but we see a huge difference in dogs after the hormones settle down.  Now if we could get others in the community to spay and neuter their pets–all would be good.Image

Look, Grammie, Come look at the little cow puppies

They do look like cows with all their black spots.  We have 5 black and white ones and 2 liver colored one.  And today we noticed their freckles are appearing.  Spotty is such a good mother and watches over them night and day.  The puppies were born on Wednesday, April 4th.

The grandkids loved watching them be born and  wanted to name them already.  We said they had to at least wait until their eyes are open and they show some personality.  Look for their pictures as they grow.Image
