Watch out! It's a MOOSE!

Moose is very much excited, well as excited as he can be,
about finding his forever home!!

It's gotta be around here somewhere...

But first he has to go herd these dogs.

Rusty...can you tell me how you found your awesome adopters?

Didge, I don't mind that you bark so much since you let me follow you around!
Also, you are about my size, so I can't be that much of an actual moose...can I?

Hmmm, I think I'll give Flicka space because she's intense,
but I'll herd her from afar because she's speedy
and it is fun for me to try to keep up.

And then he'll most likely need a nap
on his favorite spot on the couch.

Wouldn't you like to join me??

Spryte Post-surgery Update

Spryte is back home!
The surgery went well; both the enucleation and spay.

Apparently she was very sneaky
and pulled her catheter out as soon as she woke up
and then went to work on her stitches.

We are thinking that she is related to NaughtyDogTed.

This earned her a cone immediately
and she is to wear it at all times for 2 weeks.

Spryte is NOT happy about this.

Frankly, neither is her foster mom. :-)

Let's hope for a speedy two weeks and quick recovery
and TONS of stuffed kongs in the meantime.

Spryte is a puppy mill survivor that arrived in rescue on April 17th.

Over the past few weeks she has made huge progress in coming out of her shell and slowly making canine friends and trusting humans. She still has a long way to go but she is on the right track.

Spryte is enjoying the great outdoors and is much more excited to explore new places and less nervous when she is with her foster brother and sisters.

Spryte only has one eye. Her foster mom has taken her to an Ophthalmologist who thinks that Spryte probably lost her right eye due to an injury or puncture. Unfortunately, there is nothing in the eye socket that can be saved, so an enucleation of what remains of her right eye has been recommended.

The estimated cost is $1,700.

NEBCR is able to cover the cost of this surgery, as well as any other veterinary services our foster dogs require, through the continued donations received from our many generous supporters!

With the completion of this surgery and followup, Spryte will have a pain-free life and her future adopters will not have to worry about eye infections.

Please visit www.nebcr.org if you can make a donation
to help Spryte and the many border collies that NEBCR rescues.

Check back again soon for updates on Spryte as she heals up and prepares to find her forever home!

Meet Lucy

Hi! My name is Lucy. I am one of the 9 dogs pulled from a recent puppy mill bust, and will be up on the website soon for adoption. I am so full of energy and I am just bursting with the thought of having a family of my own!

I am ready to hit those trails with you! Summer is almost here, let's get in shape together!

Soaking up the sun

Oh hi! It's me, Ted! Wanna see my wound? Send me some chewies and I may show you, hehe!

Yup, its looking good. And I am looking good too if I may say so...

So, I am still at the boarding school they call The Hospital. It sounds very ivyleaguesh, don't you think? Anyhow, I got a new job. Really! My job is to interrupt conversations. So like when the ladies in white coats talk to the parents of the other hospital students, I bark and make sure they they can't hear a thing. Or when people are on the phone, I am there to ensure that they say the following phrase "I am sorry, I didn't hear what you said, can you repeat it?". If I have a good day, I make them repeat the phrase multiple times during one phonecall. I swear I see people's ears grow when they try to listen... I can grow earz too, see?!

I also developed new hobbies. My favorite hobby is to look so pathetic that the lady vet techs feel sorry for me and do extra stuff for me. Like buy me toyz, fetch me some treatz and give me snugglez. Then they say "you are so cute Ted"! Yeah right, just give me the treats, hehe.

Today, I discovered a new hobby - when foster mom and dad took me for a little walk, I realized I really enjoyed rolling in grass and soaking up the sun. It made me smile!

Hope you get to roll in grass and smile too!
Luv, Ted

Desi update

Hello to all the friends of NEBCR!

Foster Mom said I should take some time and tell everyone how I am doing. Well, the other day I went to the vet and when I came home I was no longer

“No-name Stud Muffin,”

I am now just” Desi the Desirable.”

While at the vet they discovered my ears are still infected and so is my skin. When I first came into rescue I only had fur on my head and a little on my legs. I now get lots of baths to help my skin heal and to help new fur grow in.

I don't like them very much though...

I am trying to learning that people are not so scary. I love my foster family but I still like it better when they sit on the floor with me rather than walk around. I am still too scared to meet other people but my foster Mom has had me near other people just not too close.

I have learned that dog beds are soft, when you live with a family you get fed every day; you get snacks and treats and clean water. I have bones to chew and toys to destroy!

I will keep you in the loop as to how I am doing. Thanks everyone who has helped me on this journey to being a real dog. Hopefully someday soon I will be ready to look for a family of my own. For now my foster Mom says I can stay here and get better and braver.

Here comes Quincy!

My name is Quincy and I have a special power...

I will hypnotize you with my eyes.

Or maybe with my improvisational, open field, dancing moves.

But most likely just with my super cute, curly coat and BIG ears.

Quincy's full bio will be up on the NEBCR Available Dogs page soon!
