Sheep dog - mix
Buddy ended up in the dog pound because his owner passed away.
As if that isn't hard enough for a ten year old dog to handle,
he is now in dire need of a new home or he won't have long to
live either. He is about forty pounds and he does not like
children, he will need an adult only home. Please come visit him
and save his life! $54 buys license, neuter if not done, vaccine

Buddy is a darling White Old English Sheepdog. He
does need a grooming, but is a handsome boy even
with all the hair. If you can give him a home
contact the Haywood County Animal Shelter.

Funds to a North Carolina
Shelter: Funds were provided to have Buddy groomed. He was picked up
by a rescue and we were notified recently that he was placed with his
new family to begin his life again. Additional $45.00 to groomer for the next
dog that comes along in bad shape that no one offers to assist.
UPDATE! This is Bevyn (formerly known as
Buddy... yes, the Buddy pictured
above!). We had to write back to the shelter to make
sure they contacted the right person about his recent
placement. We could not believe this was the same dog.
They indicated he had loads of red clay in his coat.
Amazing is all we can say. The rescue did a
fantastic job with him and his new family adores him.

Funds to a Texas Rescue.
Funds were provided to help pay for a portion of the
medical and food for these three girls rescued from an
animal collector. The mother sheepie was emaciated and all
three were heartworm positive... only one of the girls
survived treatment (the girl on the left at the bottom known
now as Faith). They knew love, kindness, had a warm
place to sleep and a full belly while they were here...
maybe a first for them.
Faith had lived
in a sealed 6'x6' box/pen with her sister when she
was rescued and was never socialized. She suffered
a big setback when her sister died but with a brief
period of medication, she found joy in life.
She will most likely always be shy of people (she is
NOT aggressive however). She loves to play with the
other dogs at the rescue where she will have a

Old English Sheepdog
Chicky is a sweet girl that was brought in by the dog
warden. She is about 4-5 years old. She is housebroken. But
is very sick right now. She has had extreme diarrhea since
the day she came in and needs for someone to open their
heart and take her to the vet.
Oct. 2004: $100.00...
Funds to an Ohio Shelter:
Funds were provided to have Chicky immediately taken to the vet for
assessment and put on medication. It was discovered that she had
puppies recently because she was lactating... sadly, the pups were never
found. Chicky was adopted shortly after her treatment began.
This is why we began offering
to pay for
grooming if a sheepie is safe at a shelter.
began at our local shelter with a
mix-breed dog by the name of Bowser.
We visited him and found that
he had "soil" (the polite term) on his belly and was
terribly matted. The shelter staff did their best to
cut out the worst of the mats but his coat was still in bad
shape. He wouldn't even pick up his head during our
two visits with him... he looked so terribly sad. We
asked if it would be possible to pay for someone to groom
him and test him for heartworms. They allowed us to do
this and arranged for a groomer to pick him up and pamper
him for part of the day. He came back simply handsome!
It was amazing to see the transformation of this lovely dog.
When we saw him again he was standing up, wagging his tail
and leaning on the pen fencing wanting to be scratched! He was
a completely different dog in this short time. It was
like this poor filthy creature who was just existing
day-to-day found out that life could be good again and that
someone cared. Not long after the shelter phoned to
say he had been adopted.
