BIG BOY!

This is Boy!

This is Boy!


Boy, arrived on Tuesday, as a surrender. He is definitely all Great Pyrenees and so handsome. Boy is just a year old and is in need of a good grooming and some vaccinations. We will provide some of the vaccinations here and ask that his new family complete them with the rabies when he is taken to be neutered.
We were told that Boy is great with kids and other dogs. He will need to be in a large fenced in yard, so that he doesn’t roam, like some others in his breed. We don’t think that “Boy” will be at the rescue long, so if interested call and set up and appointment to meet him.

THE REAL DEAL!

Here he is--The Real Deal!

Here he is–The Real Deal!


Most of us have seen make-overs before on television. It seems that person experiencing the make over changes right before your eyes, and a different, happier and more confident person emerges. That is exactly what happened to a little guy that came to 12 Hills Dog Rescue.
First, let me give you a little history about this little dog. He has been wandering the community for several years with hair hanging in clumps. So sad and painful to even look at. No one could catch him, and his owner refused offers for a free hair clipping for him.
Now the rest of the story. He came to us a couple days ago, and today we began cutting the clumps of hair off him. The pile was huge in the end, and the little guy was so patient through the entire procedure. After a couple hours of scissoring, using the clippers and a bath, he were amazed. What a transformation! You could call it an Extreme Make-over!” He is adorable and his entire personality seemed to change before our eyes.
Shaggy, (what everyone called him) is a different dog already. He is so handsome and he knows it. He begs to be held, in fact, he wants us to carry him everywhere. I just don’t have the heart to put him back in the big kennel, so he is now wearing a wrap in the house, and we are beginning his next new adventure, house training.
We could rant and rave about the neglect and abuse of leaving a doggie in this state, but I am choosing to look on the positive side. We know that Shaggy has so much potential. And the first thing on my list is to give him a new and better name—because the old Shaggy is gone, and a new doggie is here for sure! What do you think his new name should be?

Could It Be—Jealousy?

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!

We love your ears, Blue!

He deserves it
