Pooch and Pup Updates!

It's been a busy Spring!  So many of our dogs and pups have found their

"fur-ever" homes.  We had smiles on our faces as we waved goodbye

 from the Shelter front door!

 

Recently adoped: Jazzy, Cheerio, pups Louie and Patty, Crisco, Missy, Penelope, Tilly, Trixie, Nikki, Manny, Summer, Baby, Buddy, pups Cooper and Cheyenne, and Sawyer!

 

We wish you all a great life!

 

And, now for the puppy update:  Come in and meet Sandy and Teddie, siblings from an "unplanned"  litter of four yellow Lab/mix pups (Louie and Patty were from this same litter).  They are approximately 3-4 months old.

 

Savannah and Nino, from different litters, are yard mates and little furballs!  Savannah looks to be a German Shepherd/mix from the mask on her face, and is about 10 weeks old.  Nino might be a husky/mix with a curly tail and blue eyes.  He's about 3 months old.

 

William and Kate, from different litters, arrived at the Shelter the day after the Royal Wedding.  William, about 8 months old, might be a Corgi/terrier mix, a medium sized pup.  Kate, an adorable golden girl, is about 3 months old and with her coloring, might have some Golden Retriever somewhere in her lineage.

 

Piper, a 2 year old Lhasa Apso mix, arrived at the Shelter about a week ago... he's already received the benefit of Volunteer Nadine's brushing, and looks so handsome!

 

A mom and her pup were rescued and brought to us.  Freckles, about 3 years old, seems to be a long haired dachshund/beagle mix, and her pup, Reba, is probably about 6-8 weeks old.  It's difficult to speculate on how big Reba might grow to be as we don't know who Freckles' "visitor" was! 

 

Taska and Cherry round out our dog roster.  Taska has become the "Grande Dame" of the Shelter, and enjoys her seniority when it comes to doling out the treats!  Cherry is featured in an article, below. 

 

Unfortunately, not all of our news is happy.  It is with sorrow that we said goodbye to Rosie, a long time resident at the Shelter; she was six weeks old when she came to us, and she stayed for seven years. In mid April, Rosie was seen by Animal Health Center and Dr. Monce (our vet of record and an internal medicine specialist in Cary).  She was diagnosed with an incurable, degenerative spinal disease. During the week following her evaluation, we cared for her, giving her comfort and love, until she could no longer stand or walk.  We let her go on Friday, April 22; her cremated remains are being kept at the shelter.  We miss you, sweet Rosie; may your spirit soar.                                                                                                                                                                                        

 

 

 

 

Cherry, Her Past and Present

Last Fall, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) investigated a dog fighting site in southeastern Ohio.  This was the largest dog fighting investigation to date, with over 200 dogs (and over 500 animals total) on the property.  Having met the qualification criteria to be an Emergency Placement Partner with HSUS  (Moore Humane had submitted an application detailing procedures, site and facility information, and licensing protocols), MHS was asked to accept Cherry, a small female pitbull, named by HSUS because of her cherry eye.  Cherry was personality and aggression tested by HSUS prior to her release to Moore Humane; neither HSUS nor MHS management believe that Cherry was involved in actual dog ring fighting.  Although she has some scars, we suspect they are the result of her being used for breeding or having an aggressor dog fight her over food.  Cherry hasn't exhibited any aggression towards other dogs even when food or treats are involved.

 

When Cherry arrived at our shelter, she was very quiet, very shy, content to lie in her bed and watch the activity around her.  Moore Humane provided for the surgery to repair her eye, and volunteers began sitting with her in her kennel, gaining her trust.  She started going for walks, and enjoyed being in the yard with volunteers, young and old. However, her true love turned out to be Cheerio, the male Spaniel mix who was recently adopted.  If Cheerio was leading the pack on a walk, Cherry wanted to be right behind him!  When they were in the yard together, they played like puppies, chasing balls and squeaky toys.  Cherry has shown us her true personality, and what a delight she is!

 

Today, Cherry is waiting for her "fur-ever" home. Come in and meet her; spend some time in the yard with her (don't forget to bring treats), and see what a sweet and gentle girl she is!
