2009: A fundraiser through
help a rescue with nine Old English Sheepdogs entering
These Old English Sheepdogs were said to have been
surrendered to a rescue by a breeder. In order to
help, we donated all profits from the March 2009 sales of
the Old English Sheepdog trinket boxes to this rescue to
help them help these dogs. A big thanks to all of
our customers who helped these dogs and got a great
keepsake for their support! Because of you, we
were able to donate over $300.00 to help these dogs.
to purchase three Old English Sheepdogs.
The three females are now with
OES rescue... they'll first be spayed and then carefully
matched with new families.
If you have to rehome your
pets, seriously consider having them spayed or neutered
before they leave your control. It will guarantee they
will be companion animals rather than used by unscrupulous
breeders for profit... it's your final responsibility to
your pet if you truly want what's best for them.
to a rescue to help pay for medical care.
This sheepie-boy had been living
near a farm for quite a while. It was said he would come out
and eat with the farmer's working dogs, then retreat to the
woods. He started running in the road and the farmer
feared he'd be hit by a car so he took him to the local
shelter. This dog was set to be euthanized at the end
of the week.
A kind couple rushed over to
save him before he could be euthanized and got him to the
vet to begin his care. He had an eye infection so he
couldn't see... his ears were badly infected, one to the
point of being closed. This was probably the reason
the dog was running in the road. He also had bite
wounds on his head and back. He was shaved down,
neutered and his wounds attended to... he's still at the vet
at this time but should be going to his new home soon.
This dog was in a small
town... where the local vet had to euthanize pets weekly
because of lack of funds/space/adoptive families. It
has got to be disheartening for veterinarians to have to go
in and euthanize dogs and puppies with such potential to be
loving and loyal companions... week after week after week.
This vet is now providing this dog's care and indicated
he's such a sweet dog. It seems that he must feel good
being able to use his talents to heal rather than end or
prevent future suffering. Sadly, BOTH rolls this vet
plays are equally important in a world where there are
simply too many dogs, not enough loving homes, and
irresponsible owners who abandon or neglect dogs or breed

on account at a vet hospital for an individual who's Old
English Sheepdog was attacked at a dog daycare center.
Doggie daycare centers are
usually fun places for dogs to play and interact with other
dogs and for their owners to comfortably leave their furry
companions. However lack of adequate and qualified
supervision can be disastrous. Make sure there are
always enough humans with the dogs in when they're in a play
group... that the play group isn't too large to be safely
handled... that those on staff have plans in place to
quickly break up a dog fight. The dog in the situation above
almost died as the result of being severely attacked by more
than a dozen other dogs. So please, ask questions so you
know your dog will have a fun and safe experience.

to a rescue to pay for the spay/neutering of two adult Old
English Sheepdogs from a puppy mill in Michigan.
They came from a puppy mill in our own state. The
adults will be spayed/neutered and homes will be found for
them here. The six 10 week old puppies have headed out
East to another OES rescue and will be vetted and rehomed.
