To those of you that foster for Big Fluffy Dog Rescue (or for any rescue, really), we wanted to simply say thank you for all you do. The past few weeks have been particularly trying and all of you have stepped up hugely on short notice and under grim circumstances to help the dogs, even in the face of adversity. Sick dogs, scared dogs, dirty and smelly dogs, lost dogs - no matter the challenge, you all have risen to it. For that, we are grateful, but we are really just happy to have you all as our friends and fans. As Thanksgiving approaches, we are reminded just how blessed we have been and how wonderful our fosters and fans are. Again, thank you for all you do and from the big fluffies of the world, the very biggest of puppy kisses. We simply could not do what we do without you.
My name is Rocky. I am 18 months old now, and my parents were a mastiff and an Anatolian Shepherd. Clearly, this was a backroom affair but their love affair, however brief, produced me and I am frankly magnificent. I enjoy playing with other dogs, long walks on the beach and movie nights on the sofas with snacks. I am looking for a home in New England that has no cats as I have recently discovered the joys of cat chasing and I cannot seem to stop, even with a 12 step program. I am housebroken, good with people of all ages, I have impeccable manners and aside from occasionally liberating an unattended snack, which I swear my brother actually stole, I am perfect. If you are interested in adopting or fostering me, please email email@example.com. I am losing my foster home because of my cat chasing and it would be the saddest thing ever if I had to spend Thanksgiving alone in a kennel.
Jean Claude van Dog came to us in May of this year as a completely emaciated shell of himself. We honestly had no idea what breed he was because he was all bone and his face had more hollows than Kate Moss on a diet. Despite the fact that he was neither big nor fluffy, we brought him in as every dog has value and this one needed us.
After months of treatment for skin infections, parasites and emaciation, Jean Claude is ready to go. He is happy and exuberant and he loves to play. At 40 pounds, he is a nice medium-sized dog. He is perfectly crate-trained and has good indoor manners. He is fine with kids and he gets along well with dogs that don’t mind being around a bouncy dog. We think he would chase cats so we suggest a no-cat home. Given his size, body and head shape and general disposition, we think what we have here is a terrier/border collie x, so he will need a home that wants a jogging companion as he needs exercise and lots of it. This is a very sweet, very cuddly boy for the right, active home. If you are interested in Jean Claude, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meet Luna, a not quite 3 year old female Great Dane mix. Luna is an amazing dog and would already have found her forever home but for one small thing: Luna has a mild case of heartworms. Ordinarily, this would not be a big deal and we would have treated her and sent her on her merry way long ago. However, the idiots
, crooks, unfeeling pharmaceutical companies company that manufacturers the medicine approved to treat heartworms managed to get shut down by the FDA and now no one can treat a dog quickly anymore. This means dogs can’t go to homes and they languish in kennels. This is not a good thing.
Luna is a very good girl, she is very healthy and she needs a foster home. She is wonderful with children and she is good with other dogs that don’t try to boss her around. She is being treated with an antibiotic and she gets a pill a day. That’s it. This disease is not contagious in the classic sense and if your dogs are on Heartgard, they are not at risk of getting the disease. She is getting sad because she has no home and it will be a while before she does. If you are interested in fostering or fostering to adopt this dog, please email email@example.com. We supply the medicines and you supply the love.
