GENDER: Male (neutered)
AGE: 5 yro.
WEIGHT:
COLOR: Dark gray, docked tail, natural ears.
RESCUED:
PERSONALITY: Housetrained. Very shy and depressed. His owner went away and he was left behind. A very caring neighbor brough him to us. He was so depressed, stress out and confused when he first arrived - he cannot understand why he was abandoned. UTD on all vaccinations. Not cat friendly.
**UPDATE: Chaka was adopted 12/26/03 by a very Bouvier saavy and superb family in Leonard, MI. They had just recently had to say goodbye to one of our former rescues, Toby, who they dearly loved prior to crossing the Rainbow Bridge. They had been coming out to the farm for regular "get acquainted" visits and Chaka seems to have let them into his private and lonely little world that was forced upon him when he lost his former master. These wonderful people would not give up on him and decided to take it slow and easy and give Chaka all the time and room he needed to accept them - and it looks like it has worked.

COLOR: Black, beautifully docked & cropped
SURRENDERED: By owners in Ohio that loved her dearly but were unable to keep her.
PERSONALITY: Very sweet, loving and calm. Housetrained. Gets along great with older children. Not very tolerant of other dogs would be best as an "only child". Charlotte bonds very quickly and has a lot of love to share with her new family. Will make the right person a wonderful friend & companion. Has a thyroid condition kept under control with daily medication. UTD on vaccinations. Not cat friendly!
**UPDATE: Charlotte has been officially adopted by the president of our group, who has been her caregiver (as well as the caregiver for ALL of our rescues). Due to her age, there has not been a lot of interest shown by potential adopters. Also because of the amount of time she has been with us, we fear she would feel abandoned again if we did try to adopt her out to another family. Charlotte will remain on the farm being taken care of by the family that has loved her from day one. Charlotte has grown to love and trust them and it would be cruel of us to give her up now.

Hopefully someone will look at this sweet face and want to open their heart and home to her. She has been thru some very rough times and just needs a "forever" loving home.

Comes with her "own wardrobe" (coat, wedding dress, slicker, poodle skirt, monogrammed bed).

COLOR: Black, natural ears and tail.
SURRENDERED: By woman in Los Angeles, CA that rescued him from the LA County Animal Control
PERSONALITY: Ralph is a lover and just so full of life. He is housetrained and gets along fantastic with other dogs and children. Ralph was saved from a shelter in Los Angeles by a woman that had to give him up due to losing her job. She contacted one of our adopters in LA and requested assistance in finding him a good home. The rescues that were contacted locally were not interested in Ralph probably because he was not docked and cropped and most likely a mix. We made arrangements to have him updated on his shots and flown to us in Michigan. We cannot thank the people (Heidi & Ken) in CA enough for wanting to save Ralph. Ralph has a lot of love and companionship to offer to his new family. UTD on all vaccinations. Probably not cat friendly.
**UPDATE: Ralph will be going to his new home in Novi, MI on 11/28/03. He will be joining his new forever family (Mom, Dad, sister and four-legged Airedale Terrier brother, Trevor). This is a "walking" family and we are quite sure that Ralph will love every moment of their attention, love and companionship.

Ruger needs a "special/compassionate angel" that is willing to be blessed with a wonderful, loving companion that will be devoted to them for his remaining years. UTD on vaccinations.

NAME: Simba (renamed Sibbie)
BREED: Bouvier mix
GENDER: Female (spayed)
AGE: Born 1/21/03
WEIGHT:
COLOR: Medium fawn brindle, natural ears and tail
SURRENDERED: Simba (Precious) was one of eleven puppies born on 1/21/03 to a purebred Bouvier, Dutchess, that happened to be VERY pregnant when we rescued her. Simba was adopted by a family that has two small children and a senior dog. Regretfully, Simba had to come back to us because she ended up being "too puppy". They felt that she grew too fast and was too rambunctious for the smaller children and senior dog. She wants to play constantly and wants attention - which is quite normal for a puppy.
PERSONALITY: Simba is very trainable, loving and just wants to please. She has a very silky coat and a wonderful personality. Because she is so young there is a possibility that she may get along with a "dog friendly" cat - but we do not know for sure. Simba's only requirements are a fenced in yard, warm arms and a loving heart. She needs a family that can love her and mature with her. UTD on all vaccinations.
**UPDATE: Simba will be going to her new and final forever home in Medora, IN. She was adopted by one of the most compassionate and loving families we could ever wish for. This fantastic family also adopted three of our other rescues: Tinkerbell (Simba's sister), Deva and Bixby.
**RECENT UPDATE: What a difference between her baby pictures and now. Simba is enjoying what she does best, getting loved and petted. She really turned out to be a big and beautiful girl.
