6. ONGOING – On February 21st, 2013, I received a most delightful and touching email from a woman named Allie MacAlister that is so very active in helping others

She is extremely talented and more lovely than any words can ever be put down on paper and she has wonderfully surprised me with the very stunning and unique artful creation of an Irish Wolfhound, inspired by our Bunker Dude. She is calling it ‘Art For A Cause’.

The Wolfhound Cù Sìth

10% of sales of her products will come to BHRR!

*You can purchase t-shirts, mugs, mousepads, totes, greeting cards and SO much more! She will be adding products regularly.

BHRR’s Miss Hollywood!
ADOPTED!So happy for her and her wonderful new forever loving adoptive family! 

They have been approved Volunteers for many years and we feel honoured that they would consider going through the adoption process to adopt a BHRR dog! 

She has a 9 year old ‘big’ brother Grissom and she really loved running around with him! 

We shall miss her yet she does not need us any longer and the home will ensure that she is properly loved and taken care of! 

She looks so pretty in pink!

Congratulations again!!

I am just getting ready to now make the drive home and wishing all of our friends, family & supporters a wonderful good night!

 

SHORT Notice:

ISO: A BHRR Approved Volunteer to assist in doing a home-visit with me on Friday July 6th.

Time: 6:00 PM
Location: Russell, Ontario

This is for BHRR’s Hollywood’s possible Approved Adoption.

Please do not post your kind offer here as it may be missed! Please do email gwen@birchhaven.org

Note: if you are a BHRR Approved Adoptive home, you are already a BHRR Volunteer too! 

BHRR’s Miss Hollywood is moving under a PENDING ADOPTION!

We shall update as we can…..

BHRR’s Miss Hollywood
8 Months Old
AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION!

She is ready to make her own special announcement!

This girl is incredibly happy, social and has the best ‘wiggle butt’ in the world!

She travels great in a car, loves people, has been mostly indifferent to dogs – yet loves BHRR’s Burst & The Bakers Dozen of BHRR’s Juniper!

Her leash manners have come a LONG way and she can still pull in distraction situations.

She is so eager to please, loves to lean right into you or sit on your lap – right Liz? 

She is incredibly beautiful with soul reaching eyes. 

She is tolerant of baths and ear cleanings plus nails.

You cannot push this girl….she has been manhandled in her past and that will cause her to have so much stress. 

Patience, understanding, consistency, clear open communication so she is not confused about expectations is so important!

Structure, obedience and a ton of love are additional ingredients needed to set her up for success!

Her biggest thing is to not feel worried that someone is going to mess with her bowls or anything that she believes is high value – ie some toys. We have worked hard for her to trust us to be able to take away from her the things that we need to – ie at this professional photo shoot there was shredded pieces of material and I had zero issues removing it from her mouth and praised her hugely!

She is fed in her crate and she is relaxed. 

She has learned to share some toys and the communal water bowls yet there are still some days that are a bit of a work in progress yet HUGE HUGE HUGE strides taken.

She is housebroken and crate trained but still as a baby is not ready for full run of the house. 

She loves her ‘humans’ yet so as to not set her up for failure, we do not wish to see her adopted to a home with children under the age of 10. 

I cannot say in words just how happy this stunning girl is. She just packs so much life into her little body! 

She is a big personality and likes her long walks, short hikes and is playful, affectionate and extremely loving.

She can go to a home that works pt, ft, from home, semi-retired, retired etc. for she is another versatile BHRR dog. She is a baby still and has a lot of emotional maturing left to do. She is pretty much full grown in body size – she may grow another 1″, most likely not. She will fill out more yet any right matched personality fit home will ensure that she remains lean and fit. 

Where once she was skittish of things like collar holding or strange places – now she shows interest in them and we encourage her to be curious and explore. 

We do not know how she is around cats. 

We want her to be in a home that is calmly social.

BHRR’s Miss Hollywood – you have been a dream to have with us! 

AND to that right matched personality fit home, they will continue to set you up for success and keep developing upon the strong foundations we have put in place…she is comfortable, she has confidence she has learned that her own company is ok and to self-soothe. She has learned that she will not be forced, bullied or man handled.

BHRR’s Miss Hollywood, you have realised that you are not a wallflower and your strength of personality is amazing!

Thank you again Liz for the wonderful photo’s!

BHRR’s Miss Hollywood
June 26th, 2018

This is her waiting for her professional photo shoot!

SHE shall have her special announcement to make later today….stay tuned! 

So today this gorgeous happy creature and I are off taking a tour of the city and to do her professional photo shoot! ?

Miss Hollywood! 

Within the week – as soon as her professional photo’s come back – she will be making her own special announcement! 

What a doll of an 8+ month old puppy she is! She just needed someone to set her up for success and learn that we were not going to torment or tease her with her food, water or toys and the moment she realised that, she completely relaxed, all tension left her body and what a WOW puppy! There is absolutely zero reason why anyone should man handle or stress out a dog in situations that clearly they are not comfortable with. 

She is full of so much life and personality!

 

 

Another pic of this brindle beauty!

Miss Hollywood was at KAH tonight and we went strolling and did a walk-about too!

She weighed 30.4 kgs(66.88 pounds).

For a dog that we were informed was terrified of men, she does back flips to love on them and loves women – only slightly less than men and teenagers too!  She is totally enamoured with people! So excited to greet and love on them.

She has proven excellent with all the dogs to date – mostly indifferent yet has chosen BHRR’s Burst as her play pal and plays rough, so we are working on being more gentle. She is a ball of sheer vibrating love of life!

We did bloodwork and a thorough exam while she was here and she did fantastic. Her leash manners are a big work in process yet she would sit and lay down and stay when I asked and overall I am giving her an ‘A’ for being such a great girl when we were out.

She travels great in the car and Miss Social she is.

She needs a lot of work still on her obedience and manners and she is not yet fully housebroken yet these things shall come. She has only been with us since May 26th and incredible progress made.

She is happy, a big wiggle butt and she is slowly learning about sharing too. 

We may DNA this girl for she is very BoxerX – just for fun and sheer curiousity for what her papers say is not what she resembles, at least not as a single bred dog. As always, does not matter….she will be adored for who she is, not what she is. 

 

Got her! On my way home now!

Wee pretty thing! 

Thank to SO many for making this transport happen!! 

The face that I saw upon her arrival to KAH!

Two more transport angel photo’s!

AND Miss Hollywood is on her way – She has been travelling since early this AM.

I have been told that she is travelling very well and in about one hour, I should have her in my own hands.

I look forward to meeting her, having her settle in and being able to properly assess/evaluate her and work on her training, social and resourcing needs and/or whatever else we learn/she needs when the honeymoon period ends!

My remaining Bakers Dozen will do so much in guiding and teaching her also!

Thank you again Annie for asking us to assist her….. 

The beautiful photo credits are to the Transport Angels that are helping to get her closer to me!
