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.


Some Very Nice Dogs!

ImageWe have some great dogs at the rescue waiting for Spring to arrive. The picture above is Stu—he is 7 months old, full of playfulness and very loving.  He has a cute little overbite and we are thinking some Pekinese is in his background.  We also have Pete—a wire haired male of about 2 years. He is such a nice boy–and is on the list also to be neutered. Here is his picture,ImageNova is a handsome dog and has lots of energy to run or jog with.  He is a year old now and is ready to go.  In this picture he looks like he is smiling.Image His girlfriend is Sheba and she is quite the character. Loves to play ball and enjoys running and hanging out with you.  She is a year also, and on the list to be spayed.ImageOzzie—is such a nice boy. He is a 2 year old Aussie Bulldog and is so well mannered and kind.  He is tired of the kennel and wants to be out and about exploring.  ImageLover Boy is one of my special favorites. He came here so thin and beat up, that we didn’t recognize his breed.  Now he is happy and healthy and just wants a family that will make special time for him. When he wags his tail, his entire body moves.ImageCallie is quite the gal—a 3 year old yellow lab/Toller mix.  That breed is used for duck hunting, although I am not sure if I spelled it correctly.  We haven’t taken her hunting, but know she loves to be with people and is very sweet.ImageThen we have a boy or I should say young man that needs a home desperately. Blue is a pit–and is such a nice boy. Because of his breed, no one is beating down the door to adopt him, and of course, we need to be extra diligent when adopting his breed of dog.  Blue is a year old now, and loves people and most dogs. He has been neutered and has had all vaccinations. He would be a great dog to have on an acreage or in the country.ImageBlondie is one of our special needs dogs that will hopefully find a new home soon. His right front shoulder doesn’t work correctly, because of an injury–but he does great on 3 legs–can spin and jump and play– and wants a family that can look beyond his disability.  Blondie would make a great dog for someone with a big back yard.ImageBear–what a name for such a small dog.  Bear is almost 2 years old (we think)—and has lots of energy.  She would make a great dog for an active family.  She is a tough little gal–and if she doesn’t like another dog–watch out!ImageEmerson and Jerry are both nice boys and seem to get overlooked all the time.  They both appear to be part Heeler or cattle dog. Emerson has a very deep bark–which almost sound like a hound. Regardless They are great dogs, and both need families. A farm, acreage or even a big back yard, would make them happy. Here is Emerson—and then Jerry!ImageImagePage is another dog that is overlooked constantly. She is 2 years old now and has decided she wants her new family this Spring. She is part Bassett and very loving when she knows you.  She should probably be in a family with older children or adults, as she is a little insecure around children.ImageOmaha—named after the people of the Omaha tribe–is a great looking dog, and has really calmed down after he was neutered.  He would probably do better if he was the only dog, or with another female. He is part chow and the rest is up to your imagination.ImageWell, I could go on and on about each and every dog. I have left out Chloe the Lab/boxer mix, and Jimmy, and Maggie Mae and Marmaduke, Buddy–Pearl–and Sophie—Oh no–absolutely need to share Sophie. Had her since she was 5 or 6 weeks and she was run over a week or so before coming here. Has a leg shorter than the other on the back and a cropped tail, but that doesn’t stop her from prancing around and showing everyone how beautiful she is.  She is a year now and I call her Sophie–Bug! What great kisses she shares with me.  A little shy around people, but given the chance, she will love you forever.  Yes, she is considered special needs—but does wonderful.ImageHere is she–now tell me she isn’t a beauty!

More Dogs That Have Waited Long Enough

Placing a few more pictures on the blog of some of our dogs that have been with us for too long.  They are great dogs, but just never chosen.  When you have 75-80 dogs at a time it is hard to keep ahead of the ones coming in.  This is Jerry—a heeler mix. He has been neutered–and is always overlooked. He likes to be the Alpha dog–so a one or 2 dog home with older kids desired.




Jenny is a Imagegreat girl, just a little insecure, which causes her to snip at other dogs sometimes.  She should go to a farm or big back yard as one dog in the family.  She likes to protect those she loves. Image This is Blondie–(our Vet) named him after his horrible accident. Was run over and we had a hard time catching him. He had a broken collar bone and leg–was cast, but still not able to walk on all fours. He is a special needs guy, but can get around great–non shedding to boot. Loves women—a little shy.

ImageMindy has waited long enough. She is shiny black and we think a rat terrier mix.  We are guessing her at 6 months.

Bear is a character. She is a small to medium gal, and loves people. She likes to be the center of attention, and so she does get jealous of other dogs. She would make a great dog to take in a truck or just hang out with.

Mike is quite the Rat Terrier. He has an attitude to go with his cute face. He loves people, likes to be the only dog, and probably wouldn’t do well with cats or other male dogs. He needs neutered, soon. Cute as a bug!

Bounty should have been named Bouncey, but has settled down that last few months. He is a year old, neutered and needs a home with someone to take him on walks and give him the attention he needs. His coat is so soft.

Last but not the least–is our special girl Sophie. We have had her since she has been 7 weeks old. She was injured before she came here, but has healed and she is beautiful. Please take a second look at those big ears. We think she may have some husky and dobie in her background.

What?? The Tail End You Say???

You may have heard the expression—he or she is always on the tail end.  Well, we have a number of doggies that are in that same spot.  Cracker is the last of Freckle’s litter–Tippy, the last of Mona’s, and Maggie Mae the last of Jerrie’s litter.  We also have some adult dogs that are still with us, because they are were the last of their litter to be adopted.

That doesn’t mean they aren’t great dogs, it just means the right person hasn’t met them yet.  So, we are hoping you look at some of our “Tail End Doggies” when you are looking on our website on  We have so many dogs right now and we haven’t found one bad dog in the group.

By the way—if you like Boxer’s  we have Choco–a purebred male, Chloe a boxer/lab, Chico & Harley, Boxer/Lab/Chow mix, and Lilah, a boxer/Chow. That is the most boxers we have ever had at 12 Hills, and they are all spayed or neutered, had all vaccinations and ready for their new homes.   Take a look and give us a call.Image


Do you like BIG dogs??? We have a few at 12 Hills Dog Rescue that are looking for loving homes with a new family.  Rex is one of the biggest young dog  we have ever had. We are guessing him to be 1 year old and his breed is a mystery to everyone here.  Today, Rex is being neutered and should be home at 12 Hills tomorrow.

We also have Loki—a year old Great Pyranese mix that needs a new home. He should be out in the country, so he can run and play.  Alaska is a young female mix that is a larger breed dog.  She is white with black spots.  Her breed is also a mystery, but could be a Lab mix.

So, if BIG dogs are your forte, call and ask us about the BIG Dogs at 12 Hills Dog Rescue.

Speaking of Lucky—is he really lucky???

Lucky is still at 12 Hills and we are wondering why. He is so pretty, has a great personality and loves people.  Lucky had a rough start as a baby, but pulled through a bout with dehydration and parvo.  He has been neutered–had all his vaccinations and ready for a family. He weighs around 75#. He is brindle in color and has a coat that feels like silk.  He doesn’t seem to shed like some of the others,  Image

If you are looking for a great dog and like Lab mixes  Lucky may be just the right do for you family.
