This big lug of love was de-twinkled & microchipped this AM and I have been told that he was up and ready to go shortly afterwards!

BHRR’s Sawyer(Saint/Pyr)!

I heard he did so well – was a total bull in the china shop and hilarious and also such a good boy! 

He is slowly improving on his manners and truly there is not a mean bone in his body. He just lacked training and proper house rule structure and we are slowly getting there!

He is such a character, a strong minded one yet a total affectionate sometimes drooling fluff ball at the same time.

He really is a ham and such a handsome boy.

Today, he weighed 47.4 kgs(104.28 pounds). He will be 9 months old on the 11th. A lot of growing/maturing left to do for this fine young man!

He is having his own professional photo shoot on March 23rd and shortly after that – around early April – he should be ready to make his own special announcement!

Under the right calm, comfortable and positive balanced confident hands with his continued obedience and manners, he is going to thrive and be such an asset to that right match personality fit forever loving home and surrounding community. His SA has been well managed during his time with us to date and is almost non existent for we have made him feel safe, given him clear open communication on expectations plus have provided him with structure, consistency and routine.

In that right home, he shall flourish!

He has loved every dog he has met to date, been very curious yet respectful to cats – does wish to chase them and with people while a bit unsure and aloof at first to some, the offering of a yummy treat quickly warms him up and he has become a fast drooling friend to many! 

Loving my time with this big personality young man!

I must shout out the warmest of thanks to Kanata Animal Hospital for not only taking this picture yet for taking such amazing care of him and so many of our other dogs over the past shy of 14 years!

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

BHRR’s Sawyer was at the Vet tonight.

He weighed a nice and slim/lean 45.8 kg(100.76 pounds) at 8 months of age. 

He did fantastic meeting everyone and was a good boy for his pre-op bloodwork including testing for Heartworm plus Tickborne Diseases. 

He had a thorough exam and was given a thumbs up to be scheduled for his neuter – which shall be March 8th!

He will be microchipped at that time and given a good nail trim. 

He is now on Bravecto for fleas/ticks preventative and also being proactively/preventatively de-wormed. 

His leash manners are a heck of a lot better than when he first arrived February 22nd and his car ride to the Vet tonight was AMAZING! 

He really has come a LONG way in such a short time and as per my one post, that is not all because of me…my Bakers Dozen Pups have been teaching him so MUCH! 

He is letting me groom him and we are getting lots of loose hair, drool mats etc. out of him and I was even able to give him a small bath today…MASSIVE progress. 

He wanted to toss his weight around a bit when his Vet checked his ears, yet he settled down well and the Vet had a good look at his ears. 

Heart/lungs all wonderful and everyone remarked on what a handsome boy he is! AND he is! 

I ordered a DNA kit for fun last week yet in person, you can truly see the Pyr in him…so, I am going to stick with Saint/Pyr for now as the obvious choices for him per his previous homes’ documention. At the end of the day, it truly does not matter….for the right matched personality fit home, it shall not matter either. 

He is going to need a home – once he is ready for adoption – that is experienced, and for all of our dogs takes a positive balanced approach to good manners/obedience. 

Cannot state it enough…consistency, structure, routine and clear open communication is so intregral to any dog’s set up for success story. 

He also will need a home that does not mind drool for he is a drooling monster! 

I GOT Him!

Thank you sent out to Holly again for meeting me to help make the transfer go so smoothly!

This photo is also one sent my way from the Home as it was pitch black when I arrived. 

I asked the home to confirm his Breed mix for he did not look like a Saint/Shep and he is in fact a Saint/Pyr. 

The one O. said Shep in error. 

This 8 month old boy has huge anxiety issues….

The home mentioned that he was not good in the car and in fact around cars at all and he was certainly stressed in the car. I gave him a calming word and then passively ignored and he settled down well other than a moment or two here and there of a whine or a bark on our 1 hour drive home. 

I even made a point of just going through a drive thru in Kemptville and by then, he was content to just look quietly around and received praise for being a good boy and then passively ignored again. 

The home mentioned that he stresses out around strangers and that they have not walked him much. 

He does lack serious manners and proper social communication skills. Like all dogs, they need a positively balanced, structured and consistent environment with clear open communcation of the expectations being asked of them. He is confused and has been running the home. The one person did say that he does not listen well to them at all and only a bit better to the other. AND most certainly, he has also been putting himself above the two children in the home. 

He clearly has ‘had’ his way for some time and I did not need to see a picture to know that he had been allowed ‘high value’ item privileges and that all stops now. Yet, I do have a picture of him not just on their couch yet laying completely on top of one of their kids and not in a cuddling manner either. 

All of that ended the moment we left….he is now in a new world…mine and as much as I will be teaching/guiding him….who is going to teach him the most is my Bakers Dozen Pups. They are going to teach him SO much about proper behaviour and communication. 

He is a strong minded, strong willed, full of personality, a true character, a smart plus loyal boy and inside I know there is a mushball of a wee lost giant pup – still a strong boy yet a vulnerable one – that needs to find his way back on course…..

Tomorrow is a brand new day for a brand new beginning….

From our home to all of our friends, families and supporters, warm good-night wishes being sent!

BHRR’s Sawyer – He now has a name!

8 month old Male SaintX
Born June 11th, 2017 


HE is uber handsome!

He will be our first Rescue of 2018 and is the next in need of us.

Reason For Surrendering:
“He lacks manners/obedience, is nipping at the 2 children in the home – one has CP, plays too rough and requires too much attention.”

They are not in a position to give him what he needs and want to do right by him.

As we have stated many times in the past, BHRR is not here to judge….we are here to assist and we ask that our supporters, followers and fans also do the same.

This home wanted what was best for this boy and their family and are doing everything right in having reached out to BHRR for assistance.

Please join us in supporting them as this was not an easy decision for them.

ETA to BHRR: February 22nd
