Desi the BRAVE

To all my friends and especially anyone looking for the greatest friend ever!! I have been very busy working on being a brave dog. My bio states that I am a special needs dog. I want to let people know that what I need is a patient and loving family. In return I will give you more love then you can imagine. My foster Mom and I had a long talk the other day. I was wondering why nobody was asking about me. She told me that once I could show how much I have worked on being brave my forever family would find me.

Yesterday Gavin came to visit my foster family. He was kinda scary at first but as the day went on I realized that he wasn't so scary. All the other dogs really like him so he must be o.k.

He was at the house this morning and I decided to be as brave as I could and I walked up to him and let him pet me. I thought my foster Mom would cry.

It wasn't so bad, in fact I went back again and this time he had treats.

Then I had to take a break and then I went back for some more pets!!!!

So to the world I am ready for a forever family to help me become an even braver boy

Merry Christmas!

Santa Paws visited our house and left presents for all the doggies - residents, fosters, guests, and friends!  Here are fosters Bentley and Maserati playing with their new toys!  Pardon the typos in spelling Maserati's name in the video, please!

Bentley's hoping his next gift will be a home of his own!  :-)  Maserati will be available soon, as well.  What a delight they both are!

We hope your holidays were as merry as theirs!

Desi's holiday wish

Desi has come so far since finding his way into rescue with NEBCR almost 8 months ago.

When Desi arrived, he was almost entirely shut down. He no longer knew what it was like to just be a dog, if he ever did. He was physically in distress inside and out. NEBCR volunteers cried when all it seemed Desi wanted to do was to disappear.

Desi now:

He has overcome skin infections and fur loss.

He has learned to trust and love his wonderful foster family.

He has overcome many of his fears of the world around him.

He plays with his foster siblings.

He really is as desirable as they come.

Although it would seem his initial wish really was to just disappear, really all he wanted to be was loved unconditionally...and that he has and it has helped him understand that it is ok to just be a dog.

Desi doesn't want to be greedy with wishes, but he hopes to be granted a forever home of his very own who will just continue to love him, as that is all he really wants.
