Available Bouvier des Flandres



NAME: ABBIE
BREED: Bouvier des Flandres
GENDER: Female (spayed)
AGE: Born 3/17/03
COLOR: Black, docked and cropped
WEIGHT: Between 75-79#
BIO: On New Years Day we received a call from a gentleman whose mother had just passed away. She had two Bouvier sisters since they were pups and was wondering if we could help. His Mother had evidently fallen at home and the three of them were there all alone for at least three days without food or water. She was taken to the hospital, they were taken to their vet to be checked out, re-hydrated and fed. They both stayed until the vet felt it was safe to transport them to a boarding facility, where they would be cared for while their owner was in a rehab center. Regretfully their owner passed away and now Abbie and Buffie are looking for a very "special" family that will love and care for them. Abbie had to remain for about a week because she is insulin dependent and had to get her insulin regulated. These two loving girls desperately need a home together. They have been together since birth and they are inseparable. None of the family members were able to take them in. I spoke with their vet and was in touch with the boarding facility on a daily basis to see how the girls were adjusting to their new situation. Except for Abbie being insulin dependent and requiring two shots a day and them both being ten years old - they are still quite active when they go out and play. (Not as active as a puppy, but age-appropriately active). They do not do well on stairs. Everyone at the vets office, boarding facility and friends just loved these girls to death. They are both UTD on all vaccinations, housetrained and ready to go home with someone that will love them unconditionally. Their time at the boarding facility was running out, they had both been there for about a month. A decision had to be made as to what their future would be. They needed someone to spend their golden years with. They were both very loving companions to their former owner and we did not feel that their reward should be euthanasia just because of their age. Fortunately we found a foster family that was willing to take them in for a couple of days until we could make room at our facility for them. They were pulled out of Grand Rapids on 1/16/14 and we brought them into our facility in Imlay City, MI on 1/19/14. They get along fantastic with all the dogs at our facility (big and small). Abbie is a real trooper when it comes to getting her insulin shots. She comes right over, sits down and patiently waits for you to give it to her. Abbie is more laid-back than Buffie but she is an absolute love bug. With all the chaos, shuffling around and loss that she has endured in the past couple of months - you couldn't ask for a more well-adjusted girl. Please go to our website: www.secondchancebouvrscue.com and fill out an on-line adoption application, ONLY if you are genuinely interested in adopting these two girls together. We are looking for that "special someone" that will give them the love and care that they are so deserving of. You MUST have a completely fenced and secure yard in order to adopt these girls. Special consideration will be taken into account with regard to their adoption donation.

NAME: BAYLEE
BREED: Catahoula Leopard Dog mix
GENDER: Female (spayed)
AGE: 1yro (approx)
COLOR: Two-tone Brown on white
WEIGHT: 49#
BIO: Please meet Baylee. Baylee was found stray in the Flint, MI area. Because of her very unique and distinguishable markings the vet as well as we agree that Baylee is definitely a Catahoula Leopard Dog mix. She is drop dead gorgeous, housetrained, very intelligent, eager to learn and please and very energetic. Baylee gets along fantastic with other dogs (large and small), children and adults. Baylee has been spayed, heartworm tested and UTD on all vaccinations. These pictures do not do her justice - you would have to see her in person to appreciate how gorgeous and unique her markings are. Most likely one of her parents were some sort of a Bully breed. Please do not let this steer you away from considering adopting Baylee. You couldn't ask for a better personality or demeanor. She is so loving, very obedient and catches on quickly. With a little TLC and training you will get a phenomenal friend and life-long companion. You MUST have a completely fenced and secure yard in order to adopt any of our rescues (we will not accept electric or invisible fences). Baylee is currently being fostered in Imlay City, MI.

NAME: SMOKEY
BREED: Labrador Retriever mix
GENDER: Male (neutered)
AGE: Born 5/2/13
COLOR: Black w/white chest blaze and no tail
WEIGHT: 65#
BIO: Smokey is a Black Lab (possible mix) that was surrendered to us by a family in Lapeer County, MI. We were told that the mother had puppies, and they sold the other pups and gave Smokey away to a family member. The family member kept Smokey tied outside without any shelter and he was not fed, watered or cared for properly. Needless to say Smokey managed to get loose and was picked up by Lapeer County Animal Control. The owner was contacted but refused to come in and get him up to date on vaccinations, neutered and to bail him out. A volunteer felt sorry for Smokey and took him home to foster. We questioned the fact that his tail appeared docked and were told, when we took him to our vet to be vaccinated and neutered, that he was born without a tail - he had never been docked. Smokey is an absolute love. He is housetrained and gets along great with other dogs, children and people in general. He loves to play. Because he is so young he will have to acclimate to his new surroundings and schedule. Smokey is a beautiful and friendly boy and has so much to offer to his new family as far as love and companionship. In person Smokey looks like his fur is black patent leather. He is going to be a big boy when he finishes growing. (Smokey was adopted by a family with a 6yro son, but regretfully had to be returned Smokey because their child had a severe pet allergy. They did everything they could with their vet and pediatrician to see if there was anything they could give their son so they wouldn’t have to give Smokey up. Regretfully there wasn’t. It broke everyone’s heart because they had all fallen in love with Smokey. So now Smokey is again looking for his forever home. Smokey will give the right family all the love and companionship they could possibly dream of. Can you find the room in your heart and home for Smokey? The previous adopters said he was just perfect in every way and turned out to be very affectionate and a real snuggle-buddy). You MUST have a completely fenced and secure yard in order to adopt any of our rescues (we will not accept electric or invisible fences). Smokey is currently being fostered in Imlay City, MI. Not sure how he would be around cats.
