Lucky Boy

imageWe sent a transporter to pull Roby from the Baldwin Shelter. They sent home Robbie. Carolyn called thinking she was going crazy and said is this the right dog? He wasn’t even a cocker spaniel. Since we don’t return dogs we pull we Robbie lucked out. He is a SCCR boy now!

Cecil, Still A Mystery

CecilWe got Cecil in a month ago when he was just under 8 weeks. The person who bought him was told he was a maltese/yorkie mix. All we saw was a tiny 2 1/2 lb pathetic boy with no hair. He had mange and boy was he sad looking.

Cecil at 11 wks (2)4 weeks later, after medicated baths, antibiotics, flea control, wormings and treatments for giardia he was starting to feel much better but still didn’t have much hair. And we still could not tell exactly what mix he was but we were sure he wasn’t a cocker!

Cecil at 12 weeksNow at 12 weeks and over 6 lbs, his hair is coming in. You can see white paws and a white blaze on his head but we are still stumped as to what he is. Any ideas? He is feeling 100% and has turned into a healthy, happy puppy. Getting into everything and teasing the other foster dogs he is ready to go home. He will always be tiny, we are guessing anywhere from 9-15 lbs but we don’t have a clue what he will look like when all his  hair finishes growing out. Anyone interested in a sweet, loving boy with a bit of mystery in his past?

Meet Trisha

We got an email from the Animal Friends of the Valley shelter that said:

#257456-Trisha-9 yr“Hello,

We have a dog-friendly, people-friendly cocker spaniel in our care. Nine-year-old Trisha (#257456) was turned in via our night drop with no information about her back on 6/10. Trisha is 42 pounds, and we have been treating her for ear and eye infections. Trisha also has severe tartar on her back molars. If you are interested in pulling this sweet girl, please let me know right away. Thank you!”

Well, you know what we said!

Laverne and Shirley

Laverne Before

Laverne Before

We pulled two sweet girls from Moreno Valley shelter a couple of weeks ago. They had the sniffles but we were not worried. We took them to the vet and put them on antibiotic but it just seemed to get worse not better. Back to the vet they went. Our vet was treating five dogs from the same shelter that were all really, really sick.

After several days on IV antibiotics and fluids they finally started to come around. There is a nasty virus out there and we are glad our girls are better. They still need to be spayed but they will be ready for adoption soon. Thank you Carolyn and Dr Card for pulling our girls through this.

Meet Traegen

11250072_1160115780680760_691150719856528976_nMeet Traegen, a 3 year old cocker boy, we pulled from the Bakersfield shelter this week. He has been severely neglected. Pus is pouring from both ears although he seems to be able to hear.  And yet he is the sweetest, kindest little love, whose big brown eyes will melt your heart.
