UPDATE: Well, we now know for sure that she has raging eye infections. Here is a picture that Lindsay just sent…..

I have advised Lindsay that if for any reason she needs to take her to the emergency, to please just take her and we will get her seen sooner than tomorrow. 

I will not see any dog suffer….

Lindsay has been gently cleaning them. 

Poor girl…

An Easter Sunday Rescue happened this AM.

People talk about the Easter Bunny coming….well for this sweet Harlequin Great Dane, it was an Easter Angel that stepped up and came to her rescue.

Lindsay – I have said this several times already yet I must say it again, thank you deeply from my heart for offering to help us save this girl. What should have been a smooth owner surrender turned out to be a bit bumpy and I am so grateful to you in picking her up. So so so thankful to you.

This girl already has a Vet appointment scheduled tomorrow for 2:15 pm and will have a thorough exam – heart/lungs etc. – and we shall begin all proactive plus preventative Vet Care.

We want her eyes looked closely at – yes, she has heavy haws yet I am also suspecting possible infections – have skin, feet, hydration levels, those poor nipples(she was used for breeding) all checked. The daughter of the O. who is moving back to Slovakia today – said they were breeding for over 40 years. 

She is underweight, lacks muscle tone/mass, has calloused elbows and needs a nice pampered spa day when she is ready.

Undersocialised and skititsh yet already following Lindsay around – who wouldn’t follow such a caring soul?! 

She is only the third dog that we have been able to assist in 2018 to date and she is the perfect example as to why BHRR was founded back in 1996….for all the special needs animals just like her.

98% of those BHRR helps are the truly broken physically and/or behaviourally. Why we are here….

I cannot wait to meet this pretty ~5 year old beauty and in the meantime she could not be in more excellent hands with Lindsay. 

From our home to all of our friends, family & supporters, we hope that everyone is having a safe, happy and wonderful Easter Sunday.

We are calling her ‘Sunday’.

We thought about “Easter” as it was Easter Sunday that she is to be picked up, yet, Sunday feels like the right fit name for her.

“Sunday is a day of rest in most Western countries, as a part of the weekend. For most observant Christians, Sunday is observed as a day of worship and rest”

For us, we feel that she shall be worshipped and cherished from this day forward and that she can now rest as she is safe with BHRR. 

Her owner is moving back to Slovakia on Sunday April 1st as her husband recently passed away and we have to get her no later than by early afternoon that day.

Unfortunately, we cannot get her on Saturday or any day earlier. The daughter – who does not drive – is picking up the Owner – who also does not drive – on Saturday with help from a friend and bringing her and this Dane back to her place in Scarborough.

Our window is Sunday up to 3 PM.

We have been told she is very timid, not socialised – rarely had visitors in the home nor was taken out of the home.

I have also been told that she was used for breeding and has been used for breeding.

She shall ONLY be the third dog that we have been able to assist in 2018 to date.
