New England fans, this 12 week old male Great Pyrenees mix puppy is up for adoption. He is a fluff ball of love and he does well with everyone and everything. I can’t say anything as to who is Daddy was (Mom isn’t talking), but his Mom is a beautiful Great Pyrenees who is also in rescue. If you are interested, email email@example.com for more information.
Meet Michaela, an 11-week-old lab/border collie/something smaller mix. We think there may be some parsons russell terrier in there as her brother has a startling resemblance to an oversized parsons terrier, although it is equally possible her Mom was kind of a tramp and they have different Dads. Michaela is solid white except for one small splash of tan on her face. She is very calm, sweet and social and she is good with kids, cats and dogs. We do not think she will be all that large as she weighs around 12 pounds now and we expect her to be around 45-50 as an adult dog. Michaela is in New England and if you are interested in adopting her, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy kids, and yes they are adoptable. Email email@example.com. To see video, click on the link here: Puppy mayhem.
Rescue fans and friends:
Rescue in Connecticut is an endangered species. Special interests, including the people who support pet stores, dogs for sale and research, and groups promoting the breeding and sale of dogs continue their attempts to shut out rescue in Connecticut and all of New England. The law they quietly pushed through last year, based on misinformation and slander of legitimate rescue groups, is just the first step. Before it’s over, it’s very clear that those tied to the pet industry intend that rescue must be closed down so that only those who profit from the sale of dogs are left in existence. We MUST as a community support SB 253. We need ALL CT residents to POLITELY call, email, and write to Senator Meyer ASAP! This bill will die on Friday, March 23rd, without your calls and support.
Residents from: Branford, Durham, Guilford, Killingworth, Madison & North Branford will have the most clout but he wants to hear from ALL of us! So far, Sen. Meyer has the mistaken impression that CT residents are not interested in this revision. If you love your adopted dog, now is the time to act as time is extremely short. The Senator needs to hear that the law passed last year increases costs to the point where legitimate rescue is closing down and only breeders, pet stores and black market sellers will be left.
Please send a polite email and make a phone call to Senator Edward Meyer, Chair of the Environment Committee.

- You may tell him that you are a Connecticut voter, and it is very important to you that rescue organizations be enabled to continue their animal rescue work without feeling the burden of multiple veterinary visits to recertify the dog’s health every 15 days which adds excessive cost to the rescue and serves no health purpose. Tell him you support revisions that allow rescues to take their dogs on arrival to any vet of their choice to check on the health of the dog within 10 days of arrival, but not every 2 weeks. Ask him to please take action on SB 253, An Act Concerning Revisions to the Animal Importation Statutes and help it pass the Environment Committee.
- It is crucial that you include your address, or town of residence at a minimum, so that he understands you are CT voter.
- Be sure to thank him!
With your help, this bill can move ever closer to becoming law. Thank you!

We have seen dogs slower than Emma, and lazier than Emma, but they were dead.
Sometimes, just getting the energy to get up off the sofa is so hard:
Emma is coming up for adoption soon. This is a 180 pound, 5 year old English mastiff. She needs to go to an only dog home as she has decided she dislikes the resident dogs in her current home. They hog the sofa. Emma is fine with cats and great with people of all ages. She is an English Mastiff. This dog is super special to us and she must go to a fabulous home. If you are interested in adopting Emma, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s hard to believe, but Glenda the golden/pyr puppy is still looking for her home. She is currently in Connecticut. Glenda loves everyone and everything and she is just adorable. This puppy is just shy of a year and we’d like to see her in her new home by April 1. She is well-mannered and only mildly naughty as all puppies should be. She is good with kids, cats and other dogs. Sure, she has snagged an unattended sandwich once, and she absconded with the remote control and a blanket, but really, who can mind those sins when confronted with this adorableness?:
If you are interested in adopting Glenda, email email@example.com and tell her why you can’t resist those soulful brown eyes.
As anyone who knows us has already figured out, we’re suckers for dogs in general. This explains why we have brown mutts and tiny scruffies mixed in with all the big fluffies that we are supposed to rescue. This brings us to Humphrey, a springer spaniel rescue who is in the care of one of our coordinators in Connecticut. Many of you may know Elizabeth and this is her dog. Humphrey was jealous of his other brother (Darwin the Pyr mix) who went in for elbow dysplasia surgery so he apparently decided to make himself a patient. Humphrey jumped up on a counter and ate an entire bottle of Rimadyl and a handful of other things. He has been in ICU for 36 hours now and he has made it through the first crucial day, but he has a long way to go. We will know more tomorrow when the bloodwork is run again, but the risk it kidney and liver damage. He is also racking up a big vet bill and we are fundraising to help save his life.
We have started a chip in for his care. If you would like to donate to Humphrey’s care via chip in, you can do it here: http://bigfluffydogs.chipin.com/help-save-humphrey. If you would like to don ate via regular credit card, you can do so here: http://bigfluffydogs.com/pay-online.php (just use the donate button and be sure to put the word “Humphrey” in the company name line so we know who it goes to). We are hopeful that Humphrey will pull through and be back to hang with his pyr brothers soon.
Please say a prayer for Humphrey and we will keep everyone posted.

Fred is looking for a couch to snooze on.
Fred is a 9 year old Boxer/Great Pyrenees looking for a home. He would like someone who understands the joys of naps, snacking and maintaining a generally calm environment. Fred is the perfect companion for an adult household who can see the value in a older dog.
