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.

5. 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.

The Wolfhound Cù Sìth

Maira was able to get her hands on *Jade* today. Two beautiful photo’s of Maira & Jade.

Two lovely gals!

*Jade* looks quite good! So happy to say that part. However, her hips and knees are really bad though….really bad per what I can see in the short video’s and with Maira’s own eye witness account. HD with blown cruciates perhaps? Poor nutrition & genetics are culprits too.

*Jade* is no longer emaciated at this time and I am so happy that Maira could see *Jade* firsthand. She says that she is sweet, loving and has the Dane lean down!

*Jade* was dumped the same time the Brazilian Dane Babies were and we were not able to get to her to help her too nor in the position to assist as much as we wanted. Plus, we were not 100% sure when we were finally asked if we wanted to take her, if we could get the proper access.

Things are complicated in this area / place as we well know firsthand from our almost four month battle for The Brazilian Dane Babies.

We had been told over the last months that we could take her and then ‘no’ and then ‘yes’ and then ‘no’ and now it is a ‘yes’ again….yet for how long? Maira and I are talking and have talked off and on re: *Jade*

AND why cannot things come more easily?! For Maira took *Jade’s* toe to head height today. She is 94 cms(just over 37″).

The crate made for Jackson is 99.06 cms(39″) in height yet per international regulations to fly, we need 7.62 cms(3″) of clearance above her head. So, our crate is just over 2.54 cms too short. Ugh!

I talked to Sean and he said no, we cannot make the crate we have taller. He is going to look into seeing if he can build one now that we have the custom one that was made in Brazil and can see with our own eyes what they will accept as customized for travel from there to Canada. Sean feels that with such a small difference in her height and the crate with what is required for ‘clearance’ that perhaps no one would notice as she would be lifting and lowering her head and it would be so hard to tell such a small difference.

We all have much more talking to do……
