BHRR News Weekend!
My weekend took a change of plans yesterday when I had to bring in BHRR’s Rubble as he was shaking his head late Thursday night. So, the home-visit scheduled for a possible approved adoption on Sunday has been delayed. I take the proper proactive/preventative care of all of our dogs seriously and no dog will be adopted until they are in the best of health that they can be. BHRR shall continue to absorb the costs of his care while we treat that ear and wait for the culture to come back. While he hung out at work, I did his next Heartworm/Tickborne Disease test – was negative & he had a manicure/pedicure.
BHRR’s Rubble, you have made outstanding rehab process since you first arrived skinny, scared, traumatised, untrained and feeling confused plus unloved. You are a rock star!
So, this meant that instead of Sean dropping off this Merle beauty on her own special picnic date today, I got to! AND this meant that I was able to finally meet face-to-face one of the most caring plus genuine women ever!
Thank you to this lovely home for being so open to giving BHRR’s Daffodil this special spoiling time today. She is always overlooked and she is such a beautiful girl! Inside & outside.
Her world is truly full of sunshine and daffodils!
BHRR’s Daffodil, who once was a victim to greed for what her body could give her previous owner in puppies, neglected with none of her medical plus emotional needs taken care of, is now living the life of a princess. She is such an amazing dog and she remains AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION to that right matched fit forever loving home.
She is kind, gentle, calm – except when it comes to her biggest life’s pleasure – rolling in the grass, then she is all puppy happiness! – sweet and precious.
She is such a wonderful companion with a gorgeous personality!
Have an incredible time today you awesome girl! You deserve this! You are important and you are deeply loved.

The Wolfhound Cù Sìth
This is a blog post, updated regularly as to who is available for adoption and the ‘quick’ status of others not yet available for adoption.
NOTE: This blog post is on each of the dogs’ individual pages.
All of our available dogs can also be found on our PetFinder website.
*To read a dog’s blog, scroll to the very bottom of that dog’s individual page and read upwards, skipping over any posts such as fundraiser posts. They will answer most of your questions re: age, history etc.*
**NOTE: As of December 1st, 2016; BHRR shall no longer be responding to any inquires to adopt. We are following the lead of other r/q organizations and ONLY completed adoption applications submitted to the BHRR BOD shall be considered/responded to.**
BHRR is a federally registered NP organization and requires an application/contract to be filled out, personal references including a vet reference if applicable and a home visit to be done before being approved to adopt.
We also require that at the time of meeting any BHRR animal (after completing the application process up to that point) that the whole family + any other currently owned animals are either brought to the locale of the animal in question for at least one meeting to take place, yet almost always, we bring said dog to the home as part of the home-visit.
BHRR only places per best matched personality fit.
We also require that within four months of having adopted your new addition that at least one full round/session of group classes of obedience (they can range from 6-18 weeks) must be started and upon completion; proof (registration + completion) must be submitted to BHRR’s attention at BHRR and with having your signature on the adoption application/contract; you will be in a legal breach of your contract should this not be done. The animal involved will have to be returned promptly & safely to BHRR at your own expense.

This beautiful Dane lady – BHRR’s Daffodil – had her annual last night and it was a great Vet visit!
She is hanging around a lean 110 pounds and since her arrival has now lost 29 pounds. She has toned plus muscled up, that overbred poor body that had boobs almost hanging to the ground is long gone, that had a mammary mass removed and sent off to histiopathology is now a fit and healthy and gorgeous gal!
No more overgrown nails or ear infections or skin issues either!
AND yes, she has one blue and one brown eye.
She was given a thumbs up on heart and lungs and was a total gem at her appointment. She has a slightly stubborn sassy side and I love her all the more for it as 98% of the time she is unbelievably sweet, accommodating and charming and loving and gentle….then she has super rare moments where she is just all ‘uh no…not happening, no way….’
She remains AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION to that right match personality fit forever loving home.
Note: She is hearing and visually impaired and like all our amazing special needs dogs, nothing holds her back!
This is Gwennie!
Many of you may not know this face for she is always hiding from the lime-light.
Today is a very special day for today is Gwennie’s Birthday!
If it were not for this truly amazing woman, BHRR would not exist and thousands upon thousands of animals/people would not have been helped over the past 22+ years.
The truly broken physically and/or behaviourally…Danes, Giants and Honourary that have been saved thanks to her. Dogs & Horses that many others would not or could not help. 98% of the dogs that come to Gwen are special needs for this was her mandate for BHRR and are often the dogs’ last chance at having a future. AND Gwennie delivers. She gives these dogs the best of everything.
Many friendships would never have been formed if it were not for this great woman either.
She has not only brought many dogs and people together, she is the glue that keeps those links on her BHRR Chain of Success so strong and stable.
She is often giving credit to others, even when it should come to her….content to stay in the background and let others be the focus of attention. Humble, generous, thoughtful and caring, nothing Gwennie would not do for anyone she felt was worthy.
Loyal to a fault and though trust is hard earned, once earned it is steadfast and solid. Break that trust and that is a whole different story!
Where Gwennie does not take a back seat is when it comes to the animals and people in need. She has no hesitation in standing up for what is right, takes a zero tolerance approach and will go toe to toe in any situation that there is a need.
She has never once waivered in her vision over the past 22+ years for BHRR and has kept BHRR being a highly reputable, responsible and quality filled rescue. No animal lacks for anything and corners are never cut and she has kept BHRR small, personable with having second to none success rates.
She creates miracles every day…..many have born witness to this. She has never shied away from the difficult, heart wrenching and financially demanding animals in need. Even knowing that her heart will be ripped to shreds again and again, Gwennie continues to find strength and heart to save the next in need of her.
These animals are treated like cherished family members and anyone that visits BHRR has seen firsthand how the dogs follow and look for Gwennie. People can see how they look at Gwennie, the trust, the mutual respect, the love that they have. It is a beautiful and humbling thing to witness as these animals learn to be dogs and blossom plus grow under her care.
Time and time again, Gwennie has worked magic and has successfully rehabbed dogs to either be placed up for adoption or kept safe in BHRR’s Haven Program. She has given life to so many, great life.
Gwennie does without to ensure that the animals get everything…the big joke is how Gwennie does not even own a winter coat or boots!
It would be lovely if we could come together as her village and community and donate some funds to help Gwennie continue the extremely important work that she does.
**Email Transfer or PayPal: firstname.lastname@example.org**
Do also join us in wishing her a wonderful day as we celebrate her!
HAPPY Birthday Gwennie!
Your Loving BHRR Family/Team

As we head into New Years Eve, here is Sean’s end of year statement.
Sean is Co-Founder and a BHRR BOD Member of BHRR. This photo is of him and BHRR’s Daffodil from our traditional XMAS Even Photo shoot – December 24th, 2017! She remains Available For Adoption!
In Sean’s Words:
‘Here we are again – at the end of another year. Time to reflect on the great, the good, the bad and the ugly and set our sights on the year to come.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t specifically take this opportunity to thank everyone who has made a positive contribution to BHRR. I couldn’t possibly name everyone – but you certainly know who you are!
The contributions you’ve made through time and effort, vet bills, food, auction donations, cleaning supplies, transport, etc. is precisely what allows us to do what we do! We are a community – and stronger because of it. I offer my most heartfelt thank-you to all of you. I count our interactions with all of you as part of the highlight reel.
So many wonderful people have come into our lives.
Together we’ve done a lot of great things in 2017. There are so many BHRR dogs in forever loving homes, there have been successful events for awareness, education and fundraising. One of the most significant and recent successes for this year is The Bakers Dozen and demonstrates perfectly how everyone came together as strong links on the BHRR “CHAIN OF SUCCESS’ when needed.
This was a huge outpouring of support!
It blows my mind to contemplate the amount of puppy formula that was donated and consumed! This would not have been achievable without the enormous outpouring of support given. Seriously – the amount of formula we went through would make several mortgage payments look like chump change!
And the ugly…… I’m not generally one to dwell on the negative – but I think it is important to acknowledge and address what I feel is a growing and unfortunate trend. Let’s address something that is very real yet seldom openly discussed.
A trend not just with us, but across the internet, business and personal interactions all around. Over the past several years, we’ve seen an increasing amount of destructive and abusive interactions.
This year we were subjected to a new low – as at least one person out there already knows – BHRR was subject to a malicious attack. In the end, we were proven/validated to be operating a stellar, highly responsible, excellent and much needed organization for the animals. As this was not based in fact or naive ignorance, they received a cautionary warning and we are now investigating possible further legal venues.
However, our initial response from the actions of this vindictive individual was a ‘Wow – never saw that one coming…’
We have hosted regular BHRR events here – 6 a year for over 2 decades – for people’s benefit and for the animal’s of BHRR.
We open up our home to the scrutiny of strangers and, we have done so gladly, and, openly for we have nothing to hide………..
We commit to giving up what could be very precious, valuable coveted family time for the sake of our guests. We feel it is so important for people to witness firsthand what we do and, why we do it and, that we are not like ‘every’ other group or org. out there…..
We have even had people from approved Volunteers, the curious, the interested, stay here overnight, for days and even weeks at a time.
We have always remained full of disclosure and have shared the ups, the downs, the good, the bad and the ugly with all of our followers, supporters, friends and family.
But to the individual responsible for a baseless complaint – thank you so much for putting our family on edge and under the microscope. I can’t tell you how much we appreciated the surprise and shock instead of an open dialogue with anyone who may have had questions or concerns.
So much better to lob a hand grenade from the bushes and run away. This doesn’t feel constructive, or motivated by the best interests of the animals – this feels very personal and malicious. We are very proud of what we’ve done with our lives – can you say the same?
While I’m also not prone to extolling our own efforts – we have dedicated almost 22 years of our life to the protection of animals, particularly the special needs dogs and the giant breeds – those least likely to be picked up by high turnover rescues. Animals others cannot or will not assist. 99% of those we help are the truly medical and/or behaviourally broken, We are small, personal and dedicated. We’re not trying to be dramatic when we say this – even those who know us have absolutely no idea the level of personal commitment and sacrifice this has taken from our family. The sheer amount of physical work, the hours night and day, the successes and the heartbreaks.
Responsible/quality rescue is 24/7. We do not ‘dabble’ in rescue, only do the ‘fun’ things, hang out, visit and then get to go home to relax and enjoy 9 hours of restful sleep. The stress, lack of sleep, financial drain and complete lack of freedom for something as simple as a family vacation – or even a movie or dinner night out is our lives day in and day out and we have done this gladly! The cyberbullying endured, the tens of thousands of pounds of food transported and stacked. Hydro bills – OVER $1,100/ month and enough laundry – up to 12 loads daily – to choke a laundry mat.
We’re not looking for the thanks, the praise, the accolades, or parades in our honor. We do this for the dogs, not the recognition or for any ‘pats on the back’.
At the same time, we have grown even less tolerant of the abuse, the hand grenades thrown from the sidelines, the armchair quarterbacks who find it so easy to second guess and criticize – to judge, without ever actually seeking to understand or becoming involved.
Cyberbullying is a very real problem and after much research and conversations held with cyberbullying experts, professors and lawyers, note that regardless of the occupation, paid or volunteer, everyone has the right to work in an environment free from personal threat, free from worry about emotional and/or physical harm and the right to not be bullied. This is punishable by law.
Social media is an amazing thing, it is also an awful thing that so many spanning across a vast amount of businesses, non-profits, other professional venues and personal arena’s have been enduring some level/form of bullying.
Those who want to blame, point fingers instead of learn and understand, shame on you. Those who want to take shortcuts and then foist their problems on us, shame on you. Those who want to be coddled and told they are doing everything properly when in fact they are the issue, not the animal, shame on you. Those who are turned down for an adoption and respond by spewing accusations, sour grapes and names, shame on you. Since our inception in 1996, we have retained a zero tolerance approach with the amount of nonsense, armchair quarterbacks and negativity endured.
Setting our sights on the year(s) to come – what’s next for Birch Haven Rescue & Rehabilitation Services? Same wonderful people – same Birch Haven Rescue & Rehabilitation Services – same strong rescue mission. Absolutely nothing will change
overnight – we will continue to do what we have always done. We continue to help the next dog in need – we continue to place adoptable dogs into their right matched forever homes and we continue to provide a safe haven for those animals that need us.
Over the coming years – we will gradually transition to our long held vision of more of a haven program (which is already a large part of what we do). We will always focus on the giant breeds and canines/horses with special needs. These are the ones that need us – these are the ones we feel we can provide the greatest benefit to with our education, experience, knowledge and heart.
As of January 2018, one of our changes shall be to our adoption area’s covered – we will adopt up to an including the Barrie and Cambridge, Ontario area’s from our location and into Quebec, we will cover up to the Montreal area. We will still rescue all across the world.
Over the next year, will also be implementing an ‘Advisory Round Table Board’ of like-minded BHRR approved Volunteers in addition to our BHRR BOD Team.
We will be adding two more BHRR approved Volunteers to our Community Education Liaison Member Team too.
I look forward to working with all of our supporters in 2018 – let us do as many wonderful things this coming year together as we were able to accomplish in 2017!
BHRR BOD Team Member’
BHRR does not adopt out during the XMAS season due to our position that it is not in the best interest of any new addition being added during such a busy, exciting and somewhat stressful time for many.
Quite a few other Rescues, Shelters, Pounds etc. have also begun to follow a similar protocol to what we have been doing for 2 decades.
Our XMAS Shut down period for this year is from Friday December 22nd, 2018 to Wednesday January 3rd, 2018 inclusive.
Any applications received during this time will be processed/reviewed as of Thursday January 4th, 2018!
During this time, BHRR is always available 24/7 for requests for assistance of animals in need and we shall then network accordingly for as the local Great Dane/Giant Breed Rescue since 1996, the welfare of the animals are our top priority. We do not wish to see any animal end up in a disreputable place of which sadly there are far too many out there.
Thank you for your continued understanding – The BHRR Team
AND thank you to Xandria for surprising us so wonderfully wiith this fabu photo!
Mismarked Merle Mantle, Female, -5.5 years of age Great Dane
Available For Adoption
This stunning girl has been ready for adoption for a bit of time yet with The Bakers Dozen we held off posting as when we posted regarding BHRR’s Daffodil, we wanted all of the attention to be on her!
She is hearing and visually impaired yet 100% normal to her and to us!
She is stunning and after losing significant weight, having her vaccines updated, doing bloodwork, putting her on flea/tick/heartworm preventative, being spayed and her mammary mass addressed, developed muscle tone plus mass etc., she is finally ready to make her own wonderful announcement!
She is so affectionate, quiet, calm and as sweet as they come!
So low maintenance, precious, house-broken, crate trained, great with dogs and people and travels wonderfully in a car.
Easy to wash and do nails and such a solid well balanced beauty.
She is loyal, just beyond lovely this gal is!
She can go to a home that works full-time, part-time, from home, is semi-retired or retired. Another versatile BHRR dog.
We will not consider homes with children under the age of 8. This girl was bred so much in her life that now, she deserves to have so much in attention, love, time focused very much on her.
She can go to a home with another right matched personality fit dog yet can also be an only dog residing in the home. She does deeply enjoy the company of other dogs and as long as she has a strong social doggie network, that is what is most important.
This girl has been a true delight to have with us!
She is a real treat of a dog and one very lucky home that is her right matched forever loving home is going to get the best of dogs!
I am so happy for you BHRR’s Daffodil! You may not have had an easy & loving past yet there are many more chapters yet to be written in your life and we will continue to ensure that they are the best ever!!
Thank you Liz Bradley once again for your talent and time to get such gorgeous photo’s!
Please consider sharing her post so that her right matched forever loving home may find her!
BHRR shall be closed for the intake of adoption applications and shall not approve any adoptions from Monday October 23rd to Wednesday November 1st inclusive.
We do not adopt out around the Halloween season and many other Rescues, shelters, pounds etc. have also begun to follow a similar protocol.
We do not believe it is in the best interest of the animals in our program, especially for dark coloured dogs.
During this time, BHRR is available 24/7 as always for requests for assistance of animals in need and will network these requests to r/q organisations for we remain closed for intake.

Test Requested Results Reference Range Units
Mammary tissue. A 4-year-old intact bitch that presented for spay,
but was found to have a plum-sized (7 cm), firm mass on the left
caudal abdominal gland. Was not noted a month ago by 2 different vets,
so must be a fast-growing tumour.
Received: 0.8 cm tissue – all processed.
The biopsy was hemi-sectioned and embedded in toto. The mass is an
area of mammary lobular hyperplasia. All acini are lined by plump
cuboidal epithelial cells with moderate amounts of vacuolated
eosinophilic cytoplasm, and they are all distended with eosinophilic
secretion. The surrounding stroma is mildly edematous and congested.
Affected tissue is at the cut borders of these sections.
1.MAMMARY LOBULAR HYPERPLASIA
Good news! This is a benign lesion of mammary lobular hyperplasia.
The prognosis following excision and ovariohysterectomy is good.

Second BHRR dog update.
This is not such a wonderful update.
BHRR’s Daffodil went in yesterday for her spay and when she was on the table, an orange size mass was discovered.
Her spay procedure was aborted and the mass was biopsied and sent to histiopathology to advise if it is benign or malignant.
Her surgeon said it is a 50/50 as to if it is or is not cancerous. All of her pre-op blood work was normal yet we well know that this does not mean that this mass is not cancerous.
We shall update as we know more.
Her total Vet bill was $547.66 and even if it was twice that amount, we would ensure that it would get paid. I will post a copy of it on her individual blog as it is in PDF format and Facebook is not allowing me to upload it.
Please keep this beautiful angel in your best thoughts.
We are staying positive plus optimistic over here.
This stunning BBBBB – BHRR’s Capone – will have a special announcement to make shortly!
This is a sneak peek at his professional photo shoot thanks to Liz giving of her time and talent once again to help capture an amazing dog.
I also had BHRR’s Daffodil’s photo’s done the same day and once she is spayed after losing more weight and also developing more muscle mass plus tone, she will have her own special announcement to make!
BHRR’s Daffodil & BHRR’s Capone both had their professional photo’s today and not the best pics of them from in the car ride in….yet sharing all the same! ?
Yes, that is dried doggie drool that now needs to be cleaned up on the seat!
BHRR’s Daffodil needs to lose more weight and then she will be spayed and from there, once she heals, she will make her special announcement.
BHRR’s Capone is just waiting for the ‘all clear’ word from the ortho specialists and if all confirms what his Vet Team found last Friday at his x-rays, he will then make his own special announcement once I have his prof photo’s.
Both are such solid, amazing great dogs!
Another photo. I think she approves of my latest hair colours!
This beauty was at KAH today for a re-weigh and her boosters.
BHRR’s Daffodil is down every slightly from her arrival weight of almost 139 pounds and it is going to be a slow steady work in progress to get her to her ideal weight of closer to 120 pounds.
She had her boosters and what a sweet girl. Heart and lungs given a thumbs up and she was so good hanging out at the Hospital all morning! Her Vet loved her markings.
Once we can get more weight off her, she will be spayed. AND once she heals from her spay, she will have her own special announcement to make!
She is extremely severely hearing impaired plus has some vision impairment and she is picking up hand signals plus learning to read body language like a pro!
She has ‘chosen’ Sean as her human and that is the only time that she will do some resourcing. She is learning to ‘share’ him and other than this at times resourcing over him, butter would not melt in her mouth, she is just that soft and sweet.
Her world is full of happiness and rainbows! What you see is what you get and she is a lovely and charming girl who believes strongly in the KISS principle. Easy-going, calm, quiet and the one thing that she just takes the biggest pleasure/enjoyment out of is rolling in the grass….the simple pleasures in life she takes the deepest joy out of! She gets excited over grass!
Love this about her….humans could learn a lot from her….
AND both of the new Dane additions heading to BHRR are on their way. Both of the these Danes are medical and cannot wait to meet them.
This is the ~9 year female Merle Mantle, who has an infection from a C-Section. Thank you to Alison for the picture.
May everyone have a safe drive.
This is the second of the medical case Great Danes heading our way tomorrow.
She is ~9 years old and has an infection from having had a c-section…..
She shall be coming directly into my home as we continue to network to find a BHRR approved temp foster for her 3 year old male companion that I posted about earlier.
If any of our approved BHRR homes can assist with that emerge temp foster request, please do email firstname.lastname@example.org
