It is Almost Time

Time for Buttons to go to the special Vet and have her surgery. We were waiting until she was a little older.  Buttons is a special girl with special needs.  She has 2 hernias, so will need to fix them and get her spayed all in the same day. Poor little thing, I can’t bear to think of her at the hospital having her surgery.  Oh well, I know Buttons will bounce right back–she is so full of energy, and can I say this? Naughty to boot!  Buttons wants to have you hold her, then chews on your hand. She is a character! When Stevie and family (from Stevie’s Furry Friends) were here, she even fetched the ball for the kids. Now that is a dog!  Buttons only weighs about 10#, but that 10# is a ball of fun and will make some family very happy. Watch for Buttons in the near future and I will try and keep everyone updated on how her surgery goes.Image

When Is Skinny Good?

Well, I guess Italian Greyhounds are supposed to be thin. But how thin?  We have a new young male–so handsome and full of energy, but I think he is a little thin. I can see his ribs and backbone–is that normal for that breed, or do we need to fatten him up a little.  Regardless, he is eating and wants out of his kennel. Tomorrow is the last day for his family to claim him, and then he goes on our adoption list.  Hope he finds a good home with a family that understand and love his breed.  I know the breed are fast for sure, and we named him Rocket.  He wants to blast out of his kennel, so you have to be fast when feeding him.  Watch for Rocket in the next week–we will have pictures and more about him soon.

Tina seems to be telling Jordan to Smile for the Camera!

Why are Jordan and Tina still at 12 Hills Dog Rescue??? We surely don’t know why. They are both beautiful, with lots of energy and love to give that special family.  They are lab and heeler mix and we think the combination would make great family dogs.  Even though they have lots of energy, they are still able to sit quietly by your side and just hang out.  They are 6 months old and getting closer to being spayed.  They would make great farm dogs and enjoy riding in the 4 WD mule each night when they go for the run.
