    Luke Needs Your Help!

    As soon as we saw Luke, a 4 year old hound/Newfoundland mix, we knew he had a severe problem with his legs. Even though we knew he was most likely going to need a costly surgery or two, we could not leave this sweet boy behind. Luke is a magnificent dog and despite his obvious, [...]

    The Silver Lining

    Recently, a beautiful little dog named Pete reminded us all to be thankful for the time we have together and for the family and community that holds us up in times of deepest sadness. Pete was a one year old shepherd mix. Easy to adore, Pete had soft white fur, a couple of adorable red [...]

    Love is a Five Letter Word – ADOPT!

    When June Bug’s previous owner abandoned her to an unknown fate, the little pit bull mix had no idea what would happen to her. Luckily, she was rescued and brought to the safety of a foster home. Tiny in stature and just a bit unsure of new situations, it’s easy to overlook this precious dog [...]

    You Don’t Give Up!

    A Scared Shaggy Dog Finds Love…

    …and brings healing to others. One of my hobbies/obsessions is to peruse Petfinder to “look” at dogs that are available in our area. We had lost our beloved Briard to cancer in 2008 so I was particularly obessessed with looking at available Briards across the nation. Being one of the more rare breeds, the list [...]

    Always the Bridesmaid

    When Baxter came to BDAR back in July, we thought his rugged good looks, soulful brown eyes, and playful attitude would have someone snatching him up in an instant. But despite being just about as handsome as doggedly possible, Baxter’s still hanging out in foster care. It’s not been for lack of interest though! Six [...]

    It takes a Village….

    When we first saw “Princess” in the animal shelter, she broke our hearts. Terrified and confused, she was frozen in the middle of her concrete cell, growling at anyone who stopped in front of her, the shelter’s slip lead hanging loosely from her neck. She was a sad sight. We knew immediately that this dog [...]
