Sometime around January 31st a friend of mine tagged me in a facebook post from an animal shelter. It seems someone dropped a puppy off at the shelter.

The people at the shelter and I talked through facebook. I shared their post about the puppy in the hopes someone would adopt it.

The puppies time ran out and it was going yo be put down, so I made the 1 1/2 hour drive to the shelter, adopted the puppy and brought it home.


It is supposed to be a black mouth cur.

Beau, one of the other dogs took to the new puppy right off the bat. Buster, the other cur dog is starting to warm up.

Zoey and Ellis are still unsure of the new guy.

Thank you for getting a rescue! Looks like a sweetie.

Do you let them sleep with you? One of the great joys of my life is sleeping with my cats.

Edit: I like Bubba!

I had a great cat named Bubba.

Thank you for taking that pup! He looks like he's taking to your other dogs, and they to him. He's a cutie. I have three and have been debating taking on a fourth, but am still not sure. It gets expensive when the shots and vet visits come around.

Yes, the Right thing to do. I just went to the pound and picked up a 10 ****shu (SP) somebody had just thrown out on the street. Sweet little girl. At least she can live the rest of her life in a good environment. I have two larger rescues that never batted an eye.

I was thinking how could someone throw a dog away after Ten Years. Very cute I will say

it cool that you rescued the dog. So many wonderful animals are "disposed" of for various reasons and end up in shelters - waiting for the right humans to end their misery.

We have many rescues here on the farm. The rotties and pits do a great job of security. Large coyote population along with raccoons, possems and snakes - all love to kill and eat the little livestock here.

Almost every evening - the coyotes sing from all corners of the farm and our pack of 12 answers their song with one of their own. Reminding the wild critters that there's a powerful pack here and don't cross onto their property.

A couple of years ago had lost three hens to a suspected possum. When carrying the third mangled hen out of the coop - "Trouble" (Rottie - dobey cross) new guy watched intently. He seemed to understand that the dead hen was not making "mom" happy. The next morning laid out perfectly in front of the greenhouse was a possum. As I stood there to admire their work - Trouble can over and sat right behind the dead possum and looked me in the eyes and smiled...!!

Of course - there is training and communication and not all are able to understand dogs or their language. But if you can try - rescue something big - best security and work with the dog patiently - until it understands it's job. I couldn't have all the livestock if it werent for my good friends - and protectors. Nothing sneaks around here!!

You are a great person saving that pups life. Wish there were more people like you in the world. :)

good for you! We too have lots of "gladiators"here. Pits, Rotties, Danes and terriers - protection for the farm and its animals. When folks gain the knowledge these large dogs demand - they are a wonderful asset.
