On Friday, January 23, Brockton Animal Control called us for assistance as they were housing a multitude of lost and abandoned dogs. Jeni Mather, along with a few Blue Dog personnel, went over to Brockton Animal Control to relieve some of the dogs in their care and work towards finding them a permanent, loving home as soon as possible. The good news is that we have an additional six new Blue Dogs at the Shelter! Each one has a special story and need lots and lots of TLC. This group of dogs makes quite the motley crew: a Boxer, a German shepherd, a Malti Poo, a Pekingese mix and a Rottweiler.
First, we'd like to introduce Ahna, an older female German shepherd who was found as a stray. She has passed her temperament tests and we will continue to get to know her. Stay tuned as we will have more information on Ahna after her vet visit. Pictures coming soon!
Next is Raina who is about 2 years old and was relinquished by her family who unfortunately could no longer care for her. Thankfully she is in good hands and we are determined to find a fantastic family for this lovely lady. More information & photos to come!
Our Shelter also took in 3 five month old Bullmastiff Mixes! There are two females and a male. These little babies will be up for adoption as soon as they have all their vaccines up to date and spay and neuter surgeries. Also, one of these puppies will need to undergo eye surgery for a common aliment called "cherry eyes". It's a good thing this little fellow ended up in our care so we can help him. Sponsor a puppy, or all three, to help us defray the cost of their medical care. Photos of these large fur-babies coming soon!
Further information will be available shortly for the other three dogs that we've taken into our care. Dan is a small Malti Poo mix. A female boxer, Leia Ali, who will need to stay with us for approximately 6 months due to an expired rabies tag and an old wound from an unknown origin. Finally, Yoda, a small Pekingese mix who requires medical attention and testing at the moment. Any donations to help defray the cost of his medical care are greatly appreciated.
Photos and further updates on all these new Blue Dogs coming soon!
Moxie is a high energy girl looking for an active family who can give her lots of exercise and playtime. She has a powerful nose and will do anything for a treat or a hotdog - she will be fun to teach new things!
Moxie is 2 1/2 years old and is a full size Lab. Her energy level is a bit much for smaller children so we suggest kids over 8, and needs space so we don't think she can live in an apartment.
If your family is looking for an active dog to take on long walks or runs, play fetch with, and do all types of activities with, come meet her today!
