Clyde

There is a 4-year-old male that is up for adoption as his owner can no longer keep him.  I do not have much information about him, other than he is good with female dogs his size, but not with cats.  Contact his owner via e-mail at Goblueloveyou @ yahoo.com if you think you might be interested.  He is currently located in Dayton, Ohio.

Rebel

Rebel is a Rhodesian Ridgeback mix (possibly Boerboel mix?) that is available for adoption at The Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter.  He came in as a stray, and he isn’t doing well at the shelter.  He has been there for several months..  He is gorgeous, and he needs a second chance at life.  He is considered an urgent placement at this point.

Rebel-5394-10-07-14Rebel is approximately 3 years old, and he has been neutered.  Here is what the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter has to say about him:

Rebel was brought to the shelter as a stray in June 2014. This gorgeous Rhodesian Ridgeback mix arrived underweight and no one has come to claim him. So he sits and waits for the family willing to give him a second chance. Rebel knows “sit” and also “paw.” He is very charming! Rebel would do best in an experienced adult only household. Rebel is 75 pounds, vet checked, up to date on all vaccinations, neutered and microchipped. Could you open your heart and home to this sweet boy? You will be rewarded with unconditional love and affection!

If you think you might be interested in helping Rebel, please contact the shelter directly. This is a link to the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter.  Thank you for considering adoption.

Serafina

It is hard to tell from one picture what breed Serafina is, but I know that she needs help and has a heartbreaking story.  This is a courtesy cross-post for the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter in Wantagh, NY (Long Island).  If you think you might be interested in helping Serafina, please contact Emily at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter.  Their contact information is listed on their website:

Bio of Serafina, 8-year-old Spayed Mastiff for Adoption

If Serafina could talk, we are pretty certain she would have quite a sad story to tell. We’ve seen a lot, but when you look into Serafina’s eyes, you know there is a long life of neglect and sadness, and it’s a long life of neglect that has taken it’s toll on her. This 115 pound brindle beauty came to us as a stray. She was found lying on a curb, unable to stand, and out of breath. Upon arrival at the shelter, more evidence of neglect became clear: She had numerous broken teeth, an old scar from an embedded collar around her neck, severe open fly bites on her ears, engorged mammary glands, pressure sores on her elbows and her rear, mammary masses, and of course she tested positive for heartworm.

Yeah sure, we’ve gotten plenty of dogs with these ailments over the years, but there is something extra sad, painful and heartbreaking about Serafina. Her demeanor makes you think maybe she has given up, like she hasn’t seen any kindness shown to her in her 8 years on this earth, and that is the treatment she has come to expect from us. It’s a look in her eyes that makes you believe she has completely lost hope in any sort of peaceful existence. After 8 years of most likely being discarded like thrash, not treated like a beloved family pet, bred for her babies, not given a soft bed to sleep on, kept outside on a chain, and bounced around from guardian to guardian, here she is: a homeless, stray dog at a municipal shelter of 140 other homeless dogs.

Serafina has been through enough, and now, because she is HEARTWORM POSITIVE, she can’t stay here and wait for a home to find her. She needs to get out RIGHT NOW, and get into a quiet, peaceful, calm home where she can rest and finish out her treatment for heart worm. If Serafina could talk, maybe she would tell us that she has one more ounce of hope, and that maybe, just maybe, someone will finally want to love her.

Strangers/Novelty: Serafina was sweet, social and polite with both the stranger and the doll, though she tried to back out of being cornered by the doll. Handling: Serafina was accepting of all handling (paws, muzzle, butt). Resources: Her food sweetened with treats, Serafina left the bowl easily in advance of each push-out. She showed no interest in the chewy. She was slightly interested in toys but not playful. Dog/Dog Interaction: Serafina was uncertain at the start but also clearly social and interested in the helper dog. With time, she became more loose.

The contact information for the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter is listed on their website.  If you think you might be able to help Serafina or provide a foster home while she undergoes heartworm treatment, please contact the shelter.   If nothing else, I am sure even a small donation would be helpful.

Boerboel Rescue – Max in Georgia

We have been notified about a 4-year-old neutered male Boerboel named Max that is in search of a new home.  He is currently located in Georgia with his original owners who have had him since he was 8 weeks old.  They purchased him from a breeder in South Carolina.  They are moving soon and travel frequently and feel it will be best if they can find Max a new loving home.

Max has never shown the slightest aggression to goats, cats or other dogs.  He has no known health problems and is an indoor dog.  If you think you have room in your heart and home for a Boerboel like Max, respond to this post and I will have the owner get in touch with you.

Thank you for considering adoption!

I am happy to announce that Milo, the 2-year-old male in TX, was adopted today.  Woo Hoo!  He will be living in TX on a ranch with another female Boerboel of the same age.  His new owner will be taking him hiking which will help to burn off some of his energy.
