FEATURED DOG: XACH
Yes, Xach would do anything for a home. If someone could tell him what he did wrong to lose his home, he would try to fix it. But it was nothing Xach did. Everything was out of his control. Two years ago, Xach was a healthy, happy-go-lucky puppy, running with his brothers and sisters. The most handsome of all, the first to be chosen for everything. When he was chosen by his family, his forever story should have been sealed. For Xach it was not meant to be. In December he was diagnosed with epilepsy. In April, Xach was returned by his owner and welcomed home, back into the loving arms of Coastal, the family who had rescued him as a young puppy, the family who had promised that there would always be a place for him if anything went wrong.
Xach could have lost faith in his humans, but he didn’t. He has made friends with everyone he has met. Everyone who meets him falls in love. He has enjoyed his time in the boarding facility, playing with all the new dogs he has met and getting lots of attention from the staff. Lucky for him, his stay in the facility is almost over. He will be moving into his foster home with one of his new friends, Artemis, who also has epilepsy. Artemis’ seizures are controlled by medication. Xach is under the care of a neurologist, receiving medications and we are happy to report that even with the stress of losing his home, he has not had any seizures since he has been with us. Xach and Artemis are patiently waiting for their family, a family who will love them forever, care for them forever, a family that will never walk away.
Until that family comes along, there is one family who will not abandon them, Coastal. We can only keep our promise because of the generosity of the many angels we have who continue to donate for the care of dogs like Xach. Your donations help us provide medications to Xach and Artemis and food and shelter for the many others we have. If there were ever a time the dogs could use your help, that time is now.
Please donate if you can.
FEATURED DOG: MINNIE
Minnie still waiting for her forever home......
There was a great song made popular many years ago with the lyrics, "I can see clearly now, the rain is gone, I can see all obstacles in my way". This is still Minnie's favorite song today! Many of you out there helped make possible Minnie's comeback from several years of neglect. You may remember that Minnie came to Rescue with untreated diabetes and blindeness as a result. Cataract surgery, funded by Minnie's foster family and many dedicated supporters, restored her site and her diabetes is now also well-controlled. We think we can hear Minnie singing more lyrics, "Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind, It's gonna be a bright, bright sun shiny day!" Now all she needs is someone to sing it along with her. We know there is a special home out there that's just right for Minnie. Maybe it's you? (I Can See Clearly Now, lyrics by Johnny Nash).
Read her full biography here.
FEATURED DOG: HOUSTON
If you are looking for a friend for life, look to Houston! Houston is a very loving, intelligent and handsome four year old boy who will make someone a very loyal companion. Houston is living in a foster home and he's been waiting a long time for his forever home to come along. Houston's new home should be a couple or maybe a single man or woman who are German Shepherd Dog savvy and who have the patience and self-confidence to take the time necessary to build a relationship of trust with Houston. No children please. And no cats! Houston is housebroken and he doesn't dig, chew, and will bark only when it is necessary. With the help of a professional trainer, Houston has learned to walk very well on a leash and has learned the basic doggie commands. In fact, gentleman that he is, he'll always wait for you to go through the door first! Nighttime is a good time for Houston because he loves his crate. In fact, he loves his crate so much that if he sees you are about to leave the house and go somewhere, he'll be in his crate before you grab your car keys. On the other hand, if you'd like company when you run your errands, Houston is always ready to ride along.
Anyone who decides to give Houston a forever home must be willing to permit Houston to develop the trust he needs in order to feel comfortable with his surroundings. We know that somewhere out there, there is a very special person who is waiting to give Houston the forever home he has always deserved but has yet to experience.
