This is a VIDEO of Jack & Nala playing with their first ever toys in Brazil! Can you imagine? Being 4.5 months of age and never having had toys to play with….

Donations for their care can be made via email transfer to or via PayPal to

We have to pay for boarding up to November 16th at the earliest (we are paying an amazing rate of $20 CDA/day) and continue to pay for Vetting and high quality kibble for them.

This is *Jack* & *Nala*, the two surviving(out of 4) deaf/blind Brazilian Dane Babies that we picked up on Friday October 14th and finally were able to bring to safety. This is them on their liberation ride in Brazil. After learning of *Safira’s* needless death last week, we promised to go legal and we able to then go in and pick up *Jack* & *Nala*.

We have been continuing to work behind the scenes in preparation for their arrival to Canada.

In order to do so, we are still fundraising and are in need of $1,415 more to make this miracle happen for them. They will die if they are left in Brazil. One of their deaf/blind siblings was killed by dogs before we knew about them and *Safira*, their other deaf/blind sibling died a completely terrible and unnecessary death from pneumonia. We begged to have her brought to the Vet and kept there on IV meds/fluids etc., and offered to pay for it all….to no avail. She died outside…alone, cold, hungry, unable to breathe properly. We knew after learning that she died(last we were told she was getting a bit better) that we had to do more and promised legal intervention to get the other two safe.

Thanks to Bre of Pet Valu Stittsville – 1250 Main Street – they are donating all monies this week & weekend from their DIY(Do It Yourself) dog wash!! So if you have a dirty dog or more, your monies would be given to this wonderful cause! No appointments necessary!

They have also so kindly offered to put out a donation jar to help. How thankful we are to them and quite a few others what we are calling Brazilian Rescue Angels in helping us raise the last amount we need to make this happen for two very sweet Dane babies.

They do not know borders or countries….and they are the next in need of our specialised programs. We want to bring them here to live quality filled happy lives and not worry about the next meal, or being killed by dogs or humans and not cared for when they are ill or injured. We do not want them being cold, afraid and confused. We want them loved and warm, healthy and well fed.

We had them brought to the Vet on Monday and both are being treated for terrible diarrhea. They have a severe infestation of tapeworms. They are on Drontal, Panacur, given Revolution, Bravecto and we did fecals.

As *Nala* was running a fever, we also did blood-work and learned that she is tickborne disease positive and so is on Doxy for the next month.

They are being boarded at a safe place and receiving excellent care. Thank you again to Maira for the donation to help me pay for boarding them and for high quality kibble for them to eat.

Thank you to Andreia for buying them their very first toys ever in the lives to play with. They are now 4.5 months old and so sad to think they never had their own toys….

I will post our gofundme page. if anyone may consider making a donation!

For those supporters of our continued efforts to save *Nala* and *Jack*, here is our Facebook GROUP to join. We will post our updates on that page.

Thanks on behalf of *Jack* & *Nala*!


*Safira* – Deaf/Blind Great Dane Puppy – 1 of the 3 Brazilian Babies
Born: June 4th, 2016 – October 11th, 2016

Our hearts are just crushed to learn of the passing of this 4 month old beautiful baby.

This journey to save three deaf/blind Dane puppies has been wrought with so much pain and stress plus worry…..

Prior to our knowledge of these three puppies, she had been spayed at the beginning of September in a not so good *place* and developed pneumonia.

An angel named Maira who has been working closely with me on saving these three deaf/blind Dane babies, helped me and we both made donations for medical care, good food and beds etc., to try and help Safira.

Sadly, the care is not always as great in other places and she passed away. Animals’ are often not looked upon in the same manner and she was also kept outside.

The feelings of helplessness plus honestly, frustration has been all consuming over knowing that if she has been here in Canada, we most likely could have saved her.

I never got to meet you Safira, yet Maira and I tried so hard from afar to have you done right by….

I have lost sleep, cried many tears during this journey of trying to help you and your remaining two deaf/blind siblings. I was so saddened to think that you even had a fourth sibling killed by dogs before we were contacted.

It is so bittersweet to feel that I am happy to say that as of this AM we now have your brother and sister safe and sound with wonderful trusted people until we can get their proper vetting plus paperwork and flights in order to travel. Yet, you should have been with them Safira. You also were suppose to be saved.

You died a horrible needless death, pretty much alone, hungry and most likely confused and scared. That breaks my heart… much.

You are deserving to have this memorial of your sweet precious gentle personality that never had the chance to blossom….

I loved and adored you even though thousands of miles separated us and I so regret that we were not aware of you and your siblings before you got sick and your one sibling was killed.

I regret never having had the chance to stroke those gorgeous ears of yours Safira, they look so soft.

I regret that I never will get the chance to smooch on those great wonderful lips of yours Safira.

I regret never having the chance to hold you in comfort and have you feel my heart beating strongly with so much love for you.

I regret not having had the chance to make you feel safe and cherished.

Being deaf/blind was normal to you and I regret never having the chance to help you live up to your full potential.

I regret so much Safira that others failed you….

I promise that we remain determined to see your two surviving siblings come to Canada and we will make it happen….we will beg, plead and grovel in their names for the assistance we need.

Dear sweet Safira, may you rest in peace with a full tummy, lungs that allow you to run with such joy and you will never have to have another cold night shivering and feeling alone.

For those supporters of our continued efforts to save *Nala* and *Jack*, here is our Facebook GROUP to join. We will post our updates on that page.

We are short $2,542 to make this miracle happen for them.

Donations can be made via email transfer to or via PayPal (friend & family option) and I here is our gofundme page.

Dogs do not know borders or countries and these deaf/blind Dane babies are deserving of so much. Even $5.00 is not too little.

Thank you to all of our Angels to date in believing in them and BHRR. Jack & Nala need all the angels they can….please consider their cause.


UPDATE: Between Donations & BHRR’s Flame’s Adoption fee: $1,580 raised to date!
STILL NEED: $5,362 more to help these 3 sweet deaf/blind Dane Babies. Please consider their cause!

On September 9th, 2016, Gwen received an email in regards to three deaf/blind Great Dane babies in need. Born June 4th, 2016 and we learned that a 4th sibling had been killed by dogs.

This then began BHRR’s biggest rescue effort to date……

We have been working hard behind the scenes to see if we could even make this happen and we are now at the point of reaching out to our BHRR village as we need your help to be able to assist them.

You see, they are located in Brazil and we are working with two amazing Pet Transport companies to ensure that nothing is missed and doing complete vetting(one pup is also battling pneumonia), obtaining all the required paperwork, crates, airfare, is going to require a lot of money to save these three deserving puppies.

So far, we have been making regular donations for dog beds, blankets, medications, treating the one pup for pneumonia, and vetting for de-worming, heartworm/tick/flea and also upcoming vaccines.Another kind angel, Maira has also made donations to help ensure they have better food.

We are still in need of $5,362 to save all three of these Dane babies and to bring them safely to Canada.

It is our position that we are here to help the dogs when we have space here in Canada and that dogs also do not know countries, boundaries or borders.

The quality of life for these three special needs Dane puppies is slim to none unless we can get them to our Haven.

Here is our gofundme page that we just sent up and we also have a group and we will post that later for people to join in support and assistance for these three special Dane pups. If you use gofundme over donating via PayPal or email transfer, they will keep 9.12% in fees.

We can take email transfer to or via PayPal *friends & family* option to also.

Our goal is to get them here within the month and before the weather embargo takes place – December 1st.

Thank you in advance to any and all that may consider their cause as a worthy one….
