Our beautiful Bruno does not ask for much. A place to lay
his head, someone to love, and a small amount of special care. He was
left at our local shelter by his former owners. He is 10 years old and
25 lbs. Bruno is diabetic and requires daily insulin injections. He
currently takes 1.5
units of insulin twice per day after meals.
Bruno's foster mom feels that he has lost the majority of his vision at
this time. Despite this, Bruno navigates the home and yard with
success. Bruno currently lives with dogs of all ages and sizes. He
takes a bit of time to warm up to new dogs, but does well with them once
he feels safe. He does not mind the company of cats. He also lives with
a 7 year old child. Bruno is a good boy who deserved more than to be
left in his golden years in an overcrowded shelter. Do you have the love
in your heart to make the rest of his years his best? Email

Beckley,WV and have some transport assistance.
On November 14,2014 Saving The Animals Together was contacted by a woman
who had accidentally hit a puppy with her car. She was broken hearted as
she carried the pup to every house on the road, hoping to find his
owner so he could receive the life-saving care that he needed. Nobody
claimed him, nor did anyone know where he had come from.
When she asked us to help, we could not say no. The little pup was taken
to the vet, with his vet bill to be covered by our rescue, while further
efforts were made to find and reunite him with is owner. Unfortunately
his owner was never found, and so he became what we like to call a #STATDawg.
We were relieved to find that he had no broken bones or internal damage.
But the blow to his head had left him visually impaired. Our hopes, that
as he grew the vision would improve, were not to be realized.
Frogger was placed in foster care where he grew and learned to live
joyfully in spite of his limitation. He has no problem negotiating his
way around the house and yard, once he gets his bearings.
Frogger eventually had to be moved to a new foster home, after a short
stay in a boarding facility, because he began to act defensively when
other dogs, especially larger dogs, startled him. Because he cannot
always gauge if a growl is towards him, or a bark is an invitation to
play or a challenge to fight, he stays on edge.
A home with either no other dogs, or a carefully controlled canine pack,
would be best for him. He is fine with children as long as they are
taught not to approach him in a way that startles him. One must always
be aware that he needs time to judge a situation since he cannot see
Frogger is housetrained, leash trained, crate trained, obedient and
sweet. He loves to run and play, and snuggle and nap, like any other
dog. He will be a fantastic companion and is ready to find his lifetime
friend to love.
If your looking for a buddy to cuddle and hang out with then look no
further. Stevie may be blind but that doesn't hold him back
from living a perfectly normal life.
Stevie came to Tri County Animal Shelter as a stray and is approximately
1-1/2 years old, bulldog/boxer mix. He's neutered and UTD on shots.
Stevie does very well in his crate, with other dogs, cats and kids.
Stevie needs some help with manners and leash training. He does well
in his foster home with housetraining but will need some guidance at his
new home until he gets familiar with his surroundings, which took less
than 2 days at his foster home.
He's a very happy, eager to learn and please, cuddle buddy who loves to
hang out with his human chewing his bone or napping on the couch.

knows commands with hand signals and needs a home with no other animals.
We are sad to have to find her a new home but our other dog does not get
along with her. She plays very rough with other dogs and unfortunately
does not pick up on there growls or barking that is why she needs a
good home with no other animals.
She is great with kids but requires a lot
of attention and will need additional training.

Grits is calm when he’s near his person.
He enjoys car rides and responds positively to the ‘Car’ command (I’ve
seen him bolt out the door and wait at the car expectantly). He’s not
afraid to be touched to wake him up or to get his attention (a tap on
the nape, or lower back). He’s quiet in public places. Grits is sweet
and affectionate. He’s a great couch buddy, and he’s happy sleeping next
to his ‘persons’ feet as well. He’s cautious with dogs he’s not been
introduced, but is good with building positive friendships with other
dogs he meets. Keep in mind that he’s deaf, unknown dogs will startle
him if he doesn’t expect them.

-Housebroken and crate trained
Matilda knows basic sign language, and is
good with cats, dogs, and kids. She has to get to know you on her
terms or she will nip. Playful and has a great personality once
she feels safe and secure
Sadly we must part with her because of
allergies in our home. Her new home must be patient and loving
because of her handicap.

Domino is an
approximately one year old, deaf pitty mix. He is neutered and utd on
all shots. He was rescued as a puppy and placed with an adoption family
by For the Love of Poodles and Pooches. He was returned after the family
discovered how difficult it was to train a deaf puppy. He has since been
safe housed at a kennel/doggie day care in Richmond, VA. Domino was
having a difficult time fitting in because no one knew how to
affectively communicate with Domino.
In steps Breakthrough K9 Training, who has taken Domino under their
wing, literally, by accepting him into their board and train program.
Domino is making huge strides, learning both visual hand commands paired
up with e-collar remote training. He not only knows all his basic
commands, he is rock solid on down stays, place command, recall and
heels like a pro. Domino is very sweet with humans, but because of his
deafness can be startled more easily, so we recommend no young children.
He does well with other laid back dogs, but has a high prey drive, so
would not do well with a family with cats or teacup size dogs.
If interested in learning more about Domino, please contact Stephanie

shelter accepted Rocco into our care on Apr 2, 2016. Rocco is a 2
1/2 yr old bob tailed Australian Cattle dog who is deaf. An impending
baby and fear of falling over Rocco led to his relinquishment. Rocco was
highly stressed when he entered the kennel environment as he had never
been away from his home, had little exposure to other dogs/people and
lived in a silent world. Initially his fears at what to him, was a
terrifying new environment, created defensive behaviors requiring those
caring for him to be cautious.
passing of time, he is settling down considerably. Several volunteers
work with him daily which includes an exchange of affectionate
interactions as well as his much anticipated play time. He loves to
fetch and will return the ball and drop at feet, eager for the next
throw. He LOVES tug o war but in his eagerness to grab the tug toy,
fingers and hands can fall victim to fast moving teeth. He cannot hear
any cries or admonitions so he is not aware he has hurt someone. Homes
with children are not advisable. Leash training is in progress as he
clearly had no concept of it and desires to use the leash as a tug toy.
We are working on this. Rocco is house trained. He will chase cars,
birds and other moving objects.
safe fence will be required to keep him safe as well as a yard large
enough to provide running room. His adopter(s) need to be willing to
provide the training needed for a dog living in a silent world that will
enable him to meet the expectations of his people. He enjoys his time
outside and loves to run the fence line with the dogs in the yards
beside him. He will soon be introduced to another dog under supervision
so he will have a playmate. When he is tired from being outside, he
makes it know that he is ready for his kennel and a nap on his cot.
Rocco was neutered before coming to us. Adoption fee $100.

|Jubilent Jax - Toy Breeds In Need
Rescue - Maryland - www.toybreedsinneed.org
Available for Adoption or Long-Term
Jax is a stunning cream colored Pekingese
Mix. We cannot be certain but, we think Jax may be part Peke and part
lion. This little boy has courage and heart that is nothing short of
inspirational. He is still very much a pup at only 3 years of age. He is
17 pounds of fluffy, sweet, cotton candy. Jax loves to play with other
dogs, likes to chase cats (he means them no harm, he is just curious!)
and gives his foster Mom a smooch every time she picks him up.
A few weeks ago, TBIN offered to welcome
Jax in to our rescue after his family decided they were no longer able
to care for him. Jax suffered a ruptured disc and so no his hind legs
are paralyzed. Upon taking Jax in, we took him to our fabulous holistic
vet who evaluated him and began treating him with a few different
modalities (herbs, supplements, and laser acupuncture). Jax is in no
pain whatsoever and is blissfully unaware that he is paralyzed. Jax is
taken out frequently and expressed (this is not hard to do!) and so he
does NOT have accidents in the house. Jax had some pretty bad sores on
his knees when he was relinquished to us so we ordered him a drag bag
(second picture) so that he could scoot along without abrading his skin
and allowing his sores to heal (which they have). We are going to be
measuring Jax for a cart this week which will be custom made just for
him so that he can go for walks outside. While inside, he pulls himself
right along and has zero issues getting around.
Jax is otherwise in good health,
up-to-date on vaccines, Heartworm negative, and has been microchipped.
We are seeking either an adoptive home for Jax, or someone who is
interested in providing him with a long-term foster home. Jax's ideal
home would include someone who is home most of the day and is able to
take him outside for regular potty breaks. Another small, playful canine
companion who would be interested in wrestling and playing with Jax, as
he really loves to play and it is great exercise for him. A home without
young children would be best (ages 14 and up).

heart and home for Jax, please complete an Adoption Application: http://www.toybreedsinneed.org/adopt-1.html

||Due to my failing health I have a rescue
dog in a wheel chair that needs a new home. Brian was shot
and thrown in the woods to die. By the time he was found, he had
lost a lot of weight because he couldn’t move. We took him in
and started putting weight back on him and had him completely checked
out by our vet. Because he was shot he does not have use of his
rear legs or control of his bowel and bladder. He is a happy go
lucky dog, loves food and treats. We bought him an Eddie’s Wheel
Cart so he could run around in the back yard. He loves it and runs
around like crazy. He is up to date on all his shots, neutered,
about 2 years old, heartworm free, blond in color and listed as a
mixed breed, weights about 26 lbs. He is located in East
His bed, cart, and blankets go with him.
He is on anti seizure pills twice a day as he had seizures in the past.
Anti seizure pills are cheap and are put in his food. See the

|Tundra's Story: Every
so often, Retrieve a Golden of Minnesota (RAGOM) is asked to consider
taking in dogs who have exceptional needs and very often these dogs have
a heart-breaking story that accompanies them. Tundra is one of those
Tundra is a male golden/shepherd/husky
mix who was rescued by a RAGOM volunteer and the director of The
Marshmallow Foundation along with two other dogs and three cats. All of
these animals had been victims of severe, long-term neglect but because
they were not malnourished enough to be seized there was nothing the
local authorities could do about it.
Chained to the side of the house on a
chain too short to reach his dog house, Tundra had a miserable life. The
road to a new life began for Tundra and his canine and feline companions
when the owner of the home was evicted. At the same time, a guardian
angel neighbor made sure the animals had food and water. She was also
very persistent in seeking out help for these animals…while another
neighbor had been threatening to shoot them.
As all six animals found themselves in
rescue with the Marshmallow Foundation, the Foundation asked asked RAGOM
to take Tundra because of our past success with Joy (another wheelchair
dog). At some point in Tundra’s life, an unknown event caused a disc
rupture or fibrocartilagenous emboli, a catastrophic injury that left
his back legs paralyzed. Despite his sad and rough beginnings, he’s a
happy boy who soaks up love and attention.
Please contact Kathy Guinn at email@example.com for
more information. Tundra is located in Minneapolis, MN

Bubba is an American Staffordshire Terrier, that is about 2 years old.
He is the sweetest happiest dog around. When our rescue took him he had
no use of his back legs at all. But we have spent a lot of time working
with him and he has really come a long way in the 3 months we’ve had
him. He can stand for short periods, and even take some steps. He now
has actual muscle in his hind legs. And surprises us more and more all
the time. He gets around just fine in the house and just needs help out
to the bathroom. He also does not have accidents in the house as long as
you take him out fairly regularly. The length of time has gotten longer
as he’s gotten stronger and gained weight. His tail is always wagging.
And he just loves to be able to be a part of the family. Loves to chew
on bones, hooves, balls, and especially loves to tear apart stuffed
animals. He’s just an all around happy boy, that needs to find his
forever family. He should not go to a family that has cats, as he’s a
little too interested in trying to chase the resident cat at his foster
home. Bubba has been neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. His
adoption fee is $175.00.

Isabella better known as Bella. She is an 8 1/2 year old Rat
Terrier who is very sweet and friendly. Bella gets along well with other
animals (dogs and cats) and loves people (especially children!)
She lives to lay anywhere there is sunshine. She loves to play catch and
is quite smart. Bella suffered from a spinal cord injury back in 2010
causing paralysis from the waist down as well as being incontinent.
however, has not diminished her spirits and she continues to be an
extremely loving and playful companion. We purchased a wheelchair for
her which she refused as she is independent and prefers to get around on
her own. Aside from this injury, she is in good health and her medical
history has been uneventful.
I am looking
for a loving home for her as I can no longer care for her.

baby is Link. He came to GPRO as just a puppy, dob approx March
2015, after suffering unbelievable injuries and neglect, including a
lower back injury causing him partial paralysis, his left rear leg was
broken in two places, and right rear leg was mangled beyond repair.
There was no option but to amputate the right leg, and his left rear leg
was successfully surgically repaired. Link then started the long road to
recovery and has completed physical therapy including from June to Nov.
He has gained strength and control in his lower back and rear leg, and
has gained significant control of his bowels and bladder, and he can use
his front legs to pull himself around quite well but he can't stand and
balance without assistance. He is reliant on a wheelchair or assistance
using a rear harness for mobility.
Saydee is a beautiful 18 month old German Shepherd at Westside
German Shepherd Rescue. She has a sad tale to tell -- even we don’t know
all the details -- but we do know she is a heroic survivor. Sandy was
found by some Good Samaritans in the Central Valley who kept her safe
but needed to find a permanent place for her. Westside didn’t know at
that time that Sandy’s back had been broken in the past and healed on
its own. There is no surgery that can help her now. One of our vets said
it is a miracle she can even walk, -- which she does well -- but needs a
protective boot so she doesn’t hurt her back foot, which she drags a
little. She has no feeling in her tail and no feeling in her back end.
She will have to wear diapers unless she is romping outside with her
doggy friends or you!
We know it
will take a special person to give beautiful Sandy a home, but that
person will be so rewarded because Sandy has so much to offer -- she is
smart, loving and so appreciative.

My name is
Big Red. Aren’t I one of the most beautiful creatures you have
ever seen? I am as sweet as I am beautiful. I love to be loved and to
give love and my snuggles are like the warmest, coziest blanket on the
coldest winter day. I am five years old and my first two years must have
been very bad because I have some scars and I lost one of my legs.
Somehow I made it to the shelter and then my mom found me and took me
home with her. She has given me so much love and a wonderful home for
the last three years and I adore her for that. But you see, the problem
is that I have come to adore her so much that I can’t bring myself to
share her anymore with my pet siblings. I can no longer be around other
I need to be
in a home where I am the absolute center of attention with no other pets
and no children. I am low energy by nature and tend to spend the
majority of my time sleeping. I love a good bone to chew, a tennis ball
makes me access my inner puppy and a game of tug every now and then is
great fun. Car rides are the bomb! I don’t require a lot of exercise
which is good because I tend to be leash aggressive and bikes and
skateboards scare me terribly. I do go to daycare and enjoy that. That
environment is safe for me as I do not have to compete with any of those
dogs for my mom’s attention or for food or treats. I would do best in a
home where my people are home more than they are gone.
neutered and up to date on all vaccinations. I have one daily med for a
controlled seizure disorder. I am fully housetrained, but a crate is not
an option for me given trauma I must have experienced in my past. Mom
crated me early on and I broke two teeth trying to get out. I stay in
the house when she is gone and have access to a dog door and a fenced in
back yard. I love to be lazy in the sun!
If you have
a big heart and could open it to let me in, I will make it swell with my
love and admiration. I really am a sweet boy, I just need the right
situation. Serious inquiries only please. This is a very hard time for
my mom and your consideration of that is much appreciated. firstname.lastname@example.org
Dogs with Minor Challenges
is a male Lab mix (possibly Cattle Dog). The vet thinks he is about 2-3
years old. Truman was pulled out of the Robertson County Animal Shelter
in Springfield, TN by Beau's Wish dog rescue. He was afraid of people
and afraid of being touched so no potential adopters would even consider
him. He walks with a limp and tends to hold his right paw slightly off
the ground so as not to put much weight on it. We took him to see the
vet and, after looking at his x-rays, they determined that Truman had
been shot in the shoulder at some point in his life. Even though Truman
has been through a lot in his life already he still loves people! We
are amazed at how well Truman has adjusted to a normal life after being
hurt and mistreated for so long. He loves to play with his foster
brothers and sisters and he fits right in with the rest of the pack.
He's also learned how fun it is to go for rides in the car and walk
around pet stores, people always pet him and give him lots of treats!
Even though Truman walks with a slight limp, that doesn’t hold him back
from anything, including running around in the yard and playing with the
other dogs! Truman would love to find his very own family to love. His
idea of heaven would be curled up next to his special person or people.
Truman is neutered, house-trained and up to date on all his shots. He
takes daily anti-inflammatory medication as well as a glucosamine
