Poor Blue, our very handsome boy seems to be the object of bullying, here at 12 Hills Dog Rescue. I never really thought about dogs being bullies before, but I think that is what is happening.
You see, Blue is a very handsome dog—part pit—with a shiny dark brown coat and huge ears. Besides his handsome appearance, he has a puppy attitude and a loving personality.
Most of the dogs really like him, but then there are a few of the males, that seem to think he is their whipping boy. He doesn’t deserve to be treated that way, when all he wants is to run and play and make friends with all the other doggies here.
As I was cleaning the kennels on Sunday (that’s where I think deep thoughts), it occurred to me, that it must be his muscular body,shiny coat and pleasing personality, that gets him in trouble. Or maybe it is his big beautiful ears. I guess, that bullying occurs everywhere–even at dog rescues.
We are hoping that he finds a loving family soon. H
We love your ears, Blue!
He deserves it
Life is funny isn’t it. The times of my life when I am feeling let down, tired, disillusioned–along comes someone or something to change my perspective.
This morning I was sitting at the computer, working on my sermon for this morning. (I’m also a pastor of a small church) I had just read the story of Barnabus, the encourager, and moved on to check my email messages.
There I found a message and numerous pictures from the family that adopted Lu Lu Legs. Her new name is Sophie, and the pictures tell the story. She looks very content and happy, and loves her new sister dog. There are pictures of her playing with sticks, tug of war, relaxing and riding in a car. All the things that most dogs love to do.
Last night we received a picture from a couple that adopted Trudy. They had her in their engagement picture. She looks so special and important, posing with them for their special announcement. She is loved also.
We are so thankful to the families that adopt our dogs from 12 Hills Dog Rescue. When we need a lift, our families seem to be there to share with us. Thanks so much!
I have been thinking about the surrounding shelters and all the volunteers they are blessed with- one had 60 dogs and 30 volunteers. That is wonderful, but I am left- wondering–where are our volunteers?? Maybe no one realizes we need help. So here is it! We Need Volunteers!
Chuck is down in the back, and with 3 people running the rescue and over 60 dogs, we could use some help. Dogs need brushed, walked, bathed, fed and etc.
We wish we could find volunteers to work with the some of the dogs that are socially behind–those that need to trust again. We could use volunteers to photograph, and write articles about us. Make us a video for U-tube.
We have a needs list—At least 12 to be neutered, and 5 to be spayed. No funds to do that at this time, so maybe there is someone out there who could sponsor a dog–and help with the the spay/neuter expense. In the next month, Nola will be out of commission for some time—recovering from surgery, so we need to get our numbers down and yes, we need you to volunteer.
So, yes—we need you–to volunteer—we welcome volunteers—we are thankful for them. Call us if you want to volunteer. We are on facebook, and we have our own web page at 12hillsdogrescue.org.

Full, is what we are–here at 12 Hills Dog Rescue. Seems the dogs are coming out of the shadows, right before the weather turns cold. I imagine it will only get worse.
So I wanted to update you on the dogs waiting for their forever families. We have the small ones, Isaac, Jackie, and Zoe. We have the small to medium–Buttercup or Sister, as she is called. We have a new little terrier that arrived yesterday, and we will have pictures of her soon.
These are just a few of the small ones that are available. Call us at 12 Hills Dog Rescue for an appointment to meet the little ones, the medium ones, and the large and xtra-large doggies we have at the rescue.
