    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.

    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.

    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 [...]
