Poor PeeWee -- it shouldn't happen to a dog!

Pee Wee is an approximately 12 year old Bichon. We say approximately because this poor little guy was a stray picked up by animal control, last year. He was adopted out but returned in two days because he wasn't "connecting with the spouse." He was adopted again. This year he was turned into a humane society who called us just before Christmas.

Pee Wee loves to be outside exploring the yard, he loves to snuggle down in a soft bed but his greatest love is eating which he does quite well!

This sweet little old man is blind and deaf. He has a grade 3 heart murmur, a skin infection, an ear infection, a bladder infection and is in kidney failure. Does this sound like he was taken care of? Loved?

He has already had a dental while in rescue as well as blood work and tests. He is on a special homemade kidney diet and antibiotics. He will see the ophthalmologist to determine if he needs eye drops or other eye medications.

If you would like to help with PeeWee's care you can sponsor him. PeeWee is considered to be in TBFR's Hospice Care. We will keep him and love him here at White Dog Cottage for the rest of his life, for however short or long a time that may be.

Louie

Louie
$25 One Time Sponsor
$10/Month Bichon Buddy

Louie was given up to a local SPCA because his owner couldn't "physically or financially handle him". The SPCA called TBFR. This horribly abused dog is extremely intelligent, loyal and loving -- to only one person. His extreme fear and distrust of people has resulted in a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde personality. He is not a candidate for adoption but has found sanctuary in rescue and will live out his life at White Dog Cottage.

Monty

Rosie
$25 One Time Sponsor
Monthly Bichon Buddy

Monty was rescued from a Puppy Mill Bust. He is extremely shy and doesn't understand or relate to things that most dogs and their owners take for granted. He ignores other dogs; he doesn't know what toys are; he is not food motivated and he is afraid of most people. He does like to sleep in bed with his foster mom and follows her everywhere. With much love, time and patience we hope that this very sweet boy will start to relax and enjoy his new life.

Sean

Sean
$25 One Time Sponsor
$10/Month Bichon Buddy

Sean has spent almost his entire life in an Elizabethan collar in order to keep him from inflicting wounds on himself from biting, licking and scratching. Sean is now seeing a veterinary dermatologist which is expensive but necessary to his health and quality of life. Until his allergies can be identified and either eliminated or controlled, Sean will stay here at White Dog Cottage.

When seven month old Rosie came to rescue she weighed less than 5 lbs. -- half of what she should have weighed! Purchased at a local pet store by pathetic excuses for human beings, she lived outside and was being starved. Now at age two, she is extremely distrustful to most people and is aggressive to other dogs. She feels safe and is happy in rescue. She will always have a home at White Dog Cottage.
