BHRR Animals Available For Adoption

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.

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 16th, 2016 to Tuesday January 3rd, 2017 inclusive.

Any applications received during this time will be processed/reviewed as of Wednesday January 4th, 2017!

Thank you for your continued understanding – The BHRR Team

We do not adopt out around the Halloween season and many others 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.

This gorgeous BBBBB is Raven!

Still Available for Adoption and still a loveable goofy nut!! 😀

She had her annual today at KAH and I am also running a T4 as she is quite plump. Could be all the treats in her truly lovely foster home 😉 ….and still being fed the same yet I want to rule out a thyroid issue. The home did tell me that she was putting on some weight and we want to be proactive to make sure that all is normal with her thyroid.

She has put on 5.3 Kgs since she began to be fostered.

She had a manicure/pedicure, I cleaned her ears and she rocked her exam! So friendly and social and curious!! Her Vet even commented on how great her coat looked. 🙂

This is the emaciated puppymill Great Dane mama that we were asked to assist and she needed a mastectomy as she was full of mammary masses and we sent everything off to histio for analysis. All came back a thumbs up and she has done extremely well since her arrival into our programs. 🙂

We all remain patient as we do with others in our adoptable program for that right matched personality fit home to find her!

***UPDATE: 27 NEW Items Added Tuesday March 22nd to the Facebook Silent Auction***

The detailed rules of this Silent Auction are posted in the first photo in this album.

As many are now aware, Sean has been diagnosed with a retro-peritoneal liposarcoma.

The current size of it is 8.2 cm x 10 cm x 21 cm. This is an extremely RARE cancer – less than 1%.

A short medical summary:

His third CT scan, this one on his chest has come back at this time clear of any enlarged lymph nodes and metastasis. His MRI not only confirmed that this was a complex surgery yet was even more complicated than once thought – ONLY two surgeries like he needs has ever been done to date by his two expert surgical oncologists.

His surgical team shall be upwards to 20 people now including his two surgical oncologists, his urologist and his ortho specialist plus supporting nursing team. His surgery is expected to be ~10-12 hours in length.

We now have a surgery date set of March 23rd.

We know that his one ureter is compromised, and that he may lose his one kidney. We know that he will have part of his colon removed and that his femoral nerve is at high risk of damage and./or removal. He will need to have his Psoas muscle completely removed and his Iliacus muscle will be partially removed.

He will also need to have the hernia repaired – the mass/tumour has herniated down his thigh and into his groin area.

They will send the whole mass/tumour off to histiopathology.

While we should be celebrating our 20th anniversary of operating BHRR, instead BHRR now faces an uncertain future. BHRR does not receive any corporate, provincial or federal government support. We operate on the kindness of donations, adoption fees and we do several yearly fundraisers. However, 60% of the payment towards BHRR’s expenses comes from the pockets of Sean and myself.

All of this is to say that we are not looking for sympathy or anyone to feel sorry for us.

Instead, what we are hoping to do to help ensure the future of BHRR is raise some monies to help with bills over the next three months for BHRR that we have always covered ourselves as Sean shall not be working and I myself am taking a month off without pay from my behavioural work plus shifts at the Hospital.

One way that we are hoping to cover bills is to do at least one Facebook silent auction. If anyone has an item or items that they would like to donate to this cause, please do email contactbhrr@gmail.com

If anyone wishes to make an independent monetary donation, they can do so via email transfer to gwen@birchhaven.org or via PayPal to gwen@birchhaven.org – Please use the ‘Friends & Family’ option so that we are not charged fees.

*The BHRR Auction will begin NOW
*The BHRR Auction will end at 9 PM EST on Sunday March 27th, 2016
*All bid prices are in Canadian funds.
*Bids must be done in $2.00 or Greater increments.

Any questions, please do email gwen@birchhaven.org or call (613) 725-4279

As many know, BHRR is a Great Dane & Giant Breed Rescue that focuses strongly on the special needs and has been around since 1996. We are federally registered and are an all Volunteer Rescue. We also work with Equines.

We have a second to none adoption success rate and also provide a safe haven for animals that are deemed unadoptable due to medical and/or behavioural reasons. BHRR also has a program that works with the homeless and their pets each XMAS – Operation D.O.G. – Donating our Goodness plus we have a Helping Haven of Hope and Happiness that works with women/children and their pets in domestic abuse situations. We have been operating these two programs for over 15 years as part of our way of continuing to help animals and people in our community.

We are a unique one of a kind program out there like none other.

While we should be celebrating our 20th anniversary of operating BHRR, instead BHRR now faces an uncertain future. BHRR does not receive any corporate, provincial or federal government support. We operate on the kindness of donations, adoption fees and we do several yearly fundraisers. However, 60% of the payment towards BHRR’s expenses comes from the pockets of Sean and myself.

With our wish to ensure that every penny that comes to BHRR goes direct to them for food and Vet bills or items of comfort like dog beds, Sean & I have been covering 100% exclusively all the rescue hydro bills -$1,040/month, Phone, Gas for transports, home-visits and vet visits etc. We cover almost 50% of all the food bills out of our own pockets – BHRR goes through almost 120 pounds of dog food a day. Vet Bills are the same.

As some are now aware, in September of 2015, my husband Sean was found to have a mass. It took until January of 2016 for the experts to diagnose said mass for he has an extremely rare cancer.

Sean has been diagnosed with a retro-peritoneal liposarcoma.

The current size of his mass is 8.2 cm x 10 cm x 21 cm. This is an extremely RARE cancer – less than 1%.

To further complicate matters, this mass has herniated down into his thigh and groin severely compromising his ureter and femoral nerve. He has had three CT scans of which his latest has shown that to date his chest remains clear of metastasis and his lymph nodes are not enlarged. His MRI has shown that his case is extremely complicated and the surgery he shall specifically require, scheduled for March 23rd has ONLY ever been done twice before by the two expert surgical oncologists assigned to him.

All of this is to say that we are not looking for sympathy or anyone to feel sorry for us.

Instead, what we are hoping to do to help ensure the future of BHRR is raise some monies to help with bills over the next three months for BHRR that we have always covered ourselves as Sean shall not be working and I myself am taking a month off without pay from my behavioural work plus shifts at the Hospital.

One way that we are hoping to cover bills is to do at least one Facebook silent auction. If anyone has an item or items that they would like to donate to this cause, please do email contactbhrr@gmail.com

If anyone wishes to make an independent monetary donation, they can do so via email transfer to gwen@birchhaven.org or via PayPal to gwen@birchhaven.org – Please use the ‘Friends & Family’ option so that we are not charged fees.

Since Sean’s mass was first discovered in September, BHRR has remained operating with top notch quality hosting successful events such as our annual creative ‘Dine with the Dogs’, BHRR mini Open Houses, BHRR ‘Private’ Experiences, community education and public awareness events and even our annual XMAS ‘Chain of Success’ Potluck.

We have successfully rehabbed and adopted quite a few dogs and assisted many other groups also during this time.

The quality and stellar standard of care of the animals’ in our care has continued without interruption and as the date nears for Sean and I to stop work as he prepares to head into his 10-12 hour surgery on the 23rd of March, it is time to now ask the BHRR village and our community to please consider helping us continue to help those in need of our programs so that we can get through the next 12 weeks.

We want BHRR to be around another 20 years and we hope that people will consider a donation to help with the expenses of the next three months.

BHRR has only taken in three new deserving dogs since January 2016 and hopes to continue with assisting more dogs once Sean’s surgery is over etc.

Thank you in advance for reading this novel….

This is a picture of my husband Sean….BHRR would not be here today without him and please do keep him in your best wishes.

We sincerely hope we can host a couple of successful auctions on with your help!!

Per the previous blog post, BHRR’s Raven is AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION again…..

BHRR did their first approved adoption for 2016 tonight!

BHRR’s Pearl! She was the best right matched fit for the home and it has to be about set up for success for home and dog. Always….

Not the best photo yet we will try again at our BHRR ‘EXPERIENCE’ mini open house.

BHRR’s Pearl will remain with us to around February 12th as the home readies itself for her arrival.

Congrats to this most wonderful of homes and also thanks to Aaron for helping at this home-visit. Invaluable you are!!

BHRR’s Pearl your journey from catatonic terrified skinny, SA lacking in confidence mush to a happy, healthy hyper social Harlie has been a most beautiful transformation. I have the best of tears for you….

BHRR’s Raven – you were so loved by this home that was so apparent to see and you loved them in turn and if the home had more dog experience and/or you had had more obedience and manners under your belt, it would have been a much harder choice for the best matched fit AND your time shall come……….AND, you will only get better and better with your manners and training in the mean-time! YOU are a hoot! 😀

BHRR’s Raven, your own right matched forever loving home is out there and you gave everyone many laughs tonight!! You are honest and true….and all of us love you!

12593729_967364156663749_5244653501476972681_o

AND we are on our way!

This is the home-visit for a possible Great Dane adoption for either BHRR’s Raven or BHRR’s Pearl.

We will update as we can.

ISO: Bakers! Our 3rd Annual “Breaking Bills Bake’ Online Auction begins Saturday January 16th, 2016 and shall run through until Sunday January 24th, 2016!

We are in search of bakers for human and/or doggie treats for this unique online auction!

All items do not need to be baked until the end of the auction to ensure freshness!

Last year we had 41 amazing goodies up for grabs! We are hoping for an equally wonderfully successful fundraiser to help a most deserving dog in our Great Dane Rescue.

If anyone may consider donating a baked goodie to our creative fundraiser, please do email gwen@birchhaven.org Please do NOT post on this thread for your kind and generous offer may be missed!

All monies raised shall go towards BHRR’ Mavie’s Vet Bills. He was back at KAH on the 14th of December for a post op recheck and to exam the swelling that has begun to develop again on that left front leg of his.  He was back to not eating as well and dropping weight again. Clear signs that something is brewing…..

His had swollen lymph nodes yet was not demonstrating a fever. He is back on the Baytril 150 mg – 3 Tablets BID and that is a cost of almost $300 for just over 8 days. We are also running more bloodwork.

So, our Iron Man is not yet out of the woods………..

Thanks in advance for any consideration………

NOTICE:

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 so many years.

Our XMAS Shut down period for this year is from Thursday December 17th, 2015 to Tuesday January 5th, 2016 inclusive.

Any applications received during this time will be processed/reviewed on Wednesday January 6th, 2016!

During this time, BHRR is available 24/7 as always for requests for assistance of animals in need and will do intake.

Thank you for your continued understanding – The BHRR Team

BHRR’s 8th ANNUAL ‘JUST IN TIME FOR XMAS’ Online Auction has now begun!

Runs through to Thursday December 3rd @ 8 PM EST!

Over 50 items listed to date and some more to come!

Please consider helping us help BHRR’s Mavie!

If anyone has any items that they would like to donate, please do email gwen@birchhaven.org FOR we would be so appreciative. We only host 5 planned Fundraisers a year and BHRR’s Mavie is going to deeply benefit from all money raised in this auction.

He has his surgery scheduled to remove that left front leg implant on Tuesday November 24th with his wonderful ortho specialist. He had a sudden rejection/infection to that left implant recently and now that the Baytril(almost $600 for 16 days worth of treatment) has worked its magic on the infection, he is ‘good to go’ for surgery!

Phewwwwwww….we are finally here!! Tucked into our ‘usual’ hotel haunt in Cambridge when we head this way to do home-visits!

What a long, busy yet wonderful day in so many ways…..worked to 2 pm, our gorgeous BBBBB Senior Great Dane, Hailey went to her forever loving adoptive home AND I did not bawl…. and then drove home, picked up BHRR’s Bishop and our beautiful BBBBB Raven and then Mason and I made the drive to SWO.

The dogs traveled so well! BHRR’s Raven can sometimes be a curious George when we travel and she looked out the window and then had a great nap! I shall never tell her that she snores though….

‘The Bish’ as we affectionately call him, so so so proud of him! He is a home body and though a bit nervous getting into the car, he readily went in and I think BHRR’s Raven’s uber outgoing personality relaxed him and he enjoyed looking out the window.

He was calm and relaxed everywhere we stopped – gas, pee breaks and even through the drive-thru as both Wendy’s and Timmie’s – I think the timbits handed to him by the lovely staff ‘won’ his heart over big time!!

Such an ‘old’ soul he is, so affectionate and attentive to his circle of success network and I was really proud of him coming out of his comfort zone and showing interest and enjoying himself. Strangers can worry him, especially men in baseball caps and he is a very brave boy!

Thank you Alex for stepping up to assist me at the home-visit we are doing tomorrow for a possible Great Dane adoption!! See you then ….

We are now going to settle in, snuggle – BHRR’s Raven has figured out Mason’s bed already! – and try to go to bed early….

We will update as we can and gentle reminder that the flash auction ends tomorrow night at 9 pm EST! All monies raised to go towards the $1,200 surgery deposit needed to remove BHRR’s Mavie’s left front leg implant that he developed an infection/rejection in…..

BBBBB Raven! A puppymill GD Mama no longer!! She is so gorgeous!! She has had a miraculous transformation in rehab.
She has a great spot on Mason’s bed at the hotel and loves her comforts!

Goodnight wishes to all!!

NOTE:

From Monday October 19th to Monday November 2nd, 2015 inclusive, BHRR will not be open for adoptions or the intake of adoption applications.

We do not adopt out around the Halloween season and many others 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.

BHRR’s Raven has her special announcement to make!

This stunning BBBBB, our puppymill Great Dane Mama(~2) is AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION!

She looks and acts NOTHING like the almost completely broken, emaciated, filled with mammary masses/tumours that she arrived into rescue with!

She is so social, loving, affectionate and her BIG vice still is that she will want to jump up on some people to say ‘hello’….that is a work in progress still!

She is obedient – her leash manners are still working its way up to a A+ and she is great with all dogs of all sizes and people of all ages and those eyes of hers, just reach right deep into your soul!

She is housebroken, crate trained yet has proven 100% successful in our home for months now.

She travels great in a car and is such a big personality filled girl and for me, I have a big soft spot for she is the ONLY other dog that we have had that can operate the ice cube maker on the fridge – it was like seeing our beloved BHRR’s Dana, our dollface back in action!

The dogs that remembered BHRR’s Dana either run to the fridge for ‘ice cube time’ or got off their dog beds for many remember how BHRR’s Dana, another BBBBB would just sit on their heads to ‘get the bed’!

She can also bed hog along with the best of them. A smaller GD she may be in size yet in personality plus heart, she is massive!!!

She can be adopted to a home that works ft, pt, works from home, is semi-retired, retired etc. She is another extremely versatile BHRR Great Dane!

She has been fine with all cats she has met to date yet, integration is key and so important.

Such a big soft spot in my heart for this gem!!!

GOOD for you BHRR’s Raven….you did it!!!

Thank you as always to the incredibly talented Liz Bradley for the gorgeous photo’s!

BHRR did its 380th adoption since our inception in 1996!

BHRR’s Kricket is NOW ADOPTED!! – on the left in this photo! (BHRR’s Raven is on the right)
September 7th, 2015

We went to the home-visit with BHRR’s Ivy, BHRR’s Raven(who is not quite ready to be placed up for adoption yet close in case she could be a future right match fit) and BHRR’s Kricket.

It was clear within moments that BHRR’s Ivy was not the best matched fit. She had a great visit, loved the toys plus treats and loving yet, she was not really engaged with any member of the home. Her home is out there!

Then, it came down to BHRR’s Raven and BHRR’s Kricket and it was close in many ways, yet, for the home, BHRR’s Kricket, edged out to be the better right matched fit for this home.

It was so touching to see how BHRR’s Raven sought contact and was so affectionate, with both, yet in particular the lady of the home. Her time shall come….she is not quite ready to be placed up for adoption and that showed BUT we knew that going in. She needs a bit more weight and a bit more obedience. She is bombing along on her rehab beautifully though! Very proud of her! VERY! She had a great experience with more helping hands and caring hearts showering love on this fabu once puppymill Great Dane Mama.

For those who may remember our gorgeous BBBBB Krickets’ story –
*She arrived to BHRR last December at barely 67 pounds, picked up as a stray and was seen for weeks eating scraps on the roads prior to someone picking her up.
*She was ready to be placed up for adoption on April 30th, 2015 and her weight was almost 110 pounds
*Her weight is ~ 120 pounds right now and she has put on over 53 pounds of much needed muscle mass and weight. Her coat is shiny, soft and black now, not brown, dull and coarse.

Tammie, another one of your shelter babies has her forever loving adoptive home now!!!! Thank you for entrusting her to our care again…..

BHRR’s Kricket shall go to her home on Monday September 28th as the home gets ready for her arrival and was honest in letting us know last night at the home-visit that they were going away for a bit. They wanted to be sure that we could keep her until then. Of course we would for the right matched home!

CONGRATS to all!

IMG_8339 IMG_8341

 

AND we are on our way!! Three of our stunning BBBBB’s are heading off for a home-visit for a possible Great Dane adoption!

BHRR’s Ivy, BHRR’s Raven(not yet available yet coming in case she is a future great matched fit) and BHRR’s Kricket!

Please keep good vibes coming and we shall update as we can!

Shawna and BHRR’s Raven having a moment at our latest BHRR Private “EXPERIENCE”. Second photo is of Tracy and her ‘moment’ with BHRR’s Raven – her own testimonial is on the BHRR’s Porridge blog. 🙂

This home won this amazing opportunity in an auction we hosted earlier this year. 

We have hosted these days for well over 15 years now and it gives people the opportunity to come out and not just witness firsthand what it is that we do yet get hands on in the trenches with us.

Each EXPERIENCE turns out customised to each visit – some want more time with the horses, others want the dogs, some want both and some want more the administration side, others want to help clean stalls, repair fencing etc…..

Others just want to sit and be surrounded by the sounds of country life, sit by the pool and to see deer, other wildlife and watch all live in harmony and balance…..some want to learn more about training, especially with the special needs, or working with a ‘pack’!

We have even done bonfires plus marshmallow/weenie roasts! We feed each home a nice big dinner also including homemade dessert. 🙂

Always so much to do and never enough time!

From all of us to all of you, as always, may your Sunday be filled with friends, family plus health and happiness!

From Shawna: “It was love at first sight!”

AND her feedback about her EXPERIENCE:
“Overall GREAT experience! Love the family, animals, food and the workout too! 🙂

BHRR’s Raven’s Pathology report is in! YES! YES! YES!

They made a typo in the report and said she was ‘adopted’ yet, is recently into rescue! She has now had her booster and once she has put on more weight, she will have a special announcement to make! I am so relieved! SO so so relieved!!! Very detailed report…….

She is going to make a home an wonderful addition. She can be a wee bit ‘worried’ at first yet, settles so fast and is full of affection!!! With not having had much love in her live prior to rescue, this is understandable yet, she is learning BIG time about the great things life has to offer!

She is gorgeous and is the FIRST dog since we lost BHRR’s Dana – a legend of BHRR – that has figured out the ice cube maker! The looks on the dogs faces that knew that amazing dollface Dane. 😀

BHRR’s Raven is in for a recheck – she has quite the seroma and edema in the one mass removal area. Not the area that has the drain. That is looking great.

Per the Vet, took out the drain and will keep the sutures in for a few more days and recheck. The Vet tried to drain some of the fluid yet it was quite difficult to remove much of anything.

BHRR’s Raven was amazing! As always!

This album is dedicated to the young Great Dane Puppy Mill mama (about 18 months) that we have in our care.

She is not only skinny, recently had puppies, yet was dumped at a kill shelter with some very aggressive mammary turmours/growths/masses that we had no idea about until we picked her up. The poor thing………

She went in for surgery on Thursday August 6th for a spay and to have a mastectomy on the one mammary – gland is also now completely removed(per her Vet), remove all growths, masses plus tumours and to have them sent off for pathology.

She has had pre-op bloodwork including heartworm testing plus for tickborne diseases. She has been dewormed, microchipped, placed on revolution and is now on Deramaxx plus Tramadol for comfort.

We are all anxiously waiting fo the results of her tumours.

She has a drain installed in the one area and we are back in on Monday for a re-assessment/exam

All monies raised from the August 8th , Critter Jungle Dirty DAWG Wash shall go towards her mounting Vet Bills.

Today, our puppymill Great Dane Mama, BHRR’s Raven is having her surgeries – biopsies, growth removals plus spay. Then they shall be sent off to pathology.

Her Vet will do x-rays of her lungs should she feel they are required. Whatever she needs I have said to please do for her.

All the growths, except this one(photo below) have not changed. This one has gotten bigger yet, we had to wait until BHRR’s Raven was healthier to even undergo surgery.

Once we have her bills from today, we shall have a better idea re: fundraising needs for her plus once the pathology report comes back. All proceeds from this Saturday(HOPE to see many of you there!) at Critter Jungle for the dirty dog wash(we are also microchipping, doing nails plus cleaning ears and will have some merchandise for sale!) shall go to her care.

She is so sweet, young – no more than 18 months herself, affectionate and deserved a much better life than she received prior to her rescue.

If anyone wishes to contribute to her mounting vet bills, you can contact the wonderful Kanata Animal Hospital directly at 613-836-2848 or visit them in person – 440 Hazeldean Road, Kanata.

Please keep her in your best thoughts…..

UPDATE: BHRR’s Raven, our puppymill GD mama has been with us for a little over 2 weeks now and was scheduled today for her mammary biopsies and spay.
Unfortunately, yesterday she began to have some sniffles and a bit of a clear nasal discharge……knowing that coming from this pound environment into our home, she has been exposed to KC, we are going to play it safe and, reschedule.
While these surgeries are extremely important for her to have, we want to do what is in her best interest and also in the interest of all other dogs visiting the Hospital today.
So, we are going to postpone her surgeries at this time…..
We need to think health and safety first for all……..

My last post of my night……I know many are wishing to have updates on BHRR’s Raven and BHRR’s Bell, the two newest additions to BHRR.

BHRR’s Raven(puppmill mama) has her Vet appointment on Thursday to address her mammary issues and to get a thorough exam, Accuplex and pre-op bw etc. Will update more afterwards…Thank you Elizabeth for the collar, leash and bone for her!

BHRR’s Bell(DEAF/Visually Impaired) – photo taken just now. Collar is generous compliments of Elizabeth as well. She bought two for BHRR’s Raven and was gracious to allow us to use it for BHRR’s Bell, our latest special needs to BHRR.

She is settling in slowly yet well. She is eating and drinking well and has not yet proven housebroken and we are working on it.
She is warming up bit by bit and now looks for me and will even seek me out. She is very nervous and flighty about her face and LOVES her butt and and back end sides rubbed.

She is looking me more at my face and eyes and I am encouraging her that it is ‘ok’. She knows little in sign language and we are working on signs and touch training for now. Scent training shall come along with lights – turning on and off our lights – plus vibration training – NOT vibration collars – using the door and floors to communicate.

She loves stuffies and will fetch them and play with them YET is a big resourcer at this time. She also will resource over the communal water bowls. We are working on ‘manners.’
She is excellent in her crate and has been fully integrated with everyone.

She has begun to slowly play with a few of the other dogs – BHRR’s Raven – who really is a baby herself – maybe 18 months now that I am assessing her deeper with her arrival – has rally built up her confidence plus comfort level. NOT sure if that is a great thing as BHRR’s Raven is just as I thought she would be….a mini BHRR’s Dana(RIP) and no surprise that BHRR’s Ivy is a bff already! Someone help me! LOL

She can play rough and get a bit ‘lost’ and become rough and, so we are working on gentle and stopping things before she flattens Salt for example.

She is becoming more and more bonded to me…BHRR’s Raven is another shadow for me now…much to BHRR’s Angel Noelle’s disgust! LOL

BHRR’s Bell makes the smallest, cutest sounds when wanting to play and how she gets on the couch – yes, HQD has been busy herself! – she backs up, puts one leg on, then the other back leg and then next thing you know she is sitting straight up! LOL

There is no reason at this time to think that she cannot be adoptable…yet, she has much to learn, startle reflex included before that day comes and, watching her begin to enjoy life and be happy is really a gift……

Good night from BHRR to all of our friends, family and fans!

IMG_7764 IMG_7765

I GOT her! We are going to call her BHRR’s Raven and, she has a very sad story…..
She is a puppymiller dog, dumped while still nursing a litter and her body is a terrible documentation of her past.
I am not sure pictures are going to really show her poor body with the many litters she has had and she is more like 2-3 years of age – will get a better idea soon.
She also has concerning mammary growths.
She also needs more weight…..
I was a bit shocked for how bad she looks and so was her Rescuer Rose for what was imparted her way to me is not what is the case. Even more reason why I am so happy she is with us……
I will have her into KAH ASAP for exam, biospsies etc……I have to be honest, I am worried….
This photo is of Rose and ‘Raven’ – and, I am not one for Danes jumping on people yet, as we were getting ready to say good-bye, she jumped up and kissed Rose and both Rose and I agree that we feel ‘Raven’ was thanking Rose for saving her…..
She is going to need a collar(she is in a choke right now) and a dog bed to call her own and we will make it happen for her!
Her eyes are the most incredible shade of amber and so soft and sweet…..

On Friday July 10th, we received notification that a GD was in need, ~1 and ~100 pounds. No questions asked, we stepped up to assist. ETA to BHRR Saturday July 11th, 2015

We then received a separate email to say that she was timid and great with other dogs.
