Eight year old Lance was surrendered to Animal Control before Christmas because his family couldn't take care of him any longer. He had a large growth on the side of his face which has been removed since coming to rescue. After a recuperative period, this sweetest of boys will be looking for his forever home.

Monthly Bichon Buddy

15-year-old Beau is part of TBFR's Hospice Program. He came to rescue with his 18-year-old father, Sonny, who recently passed away. Their elderly owner went to a nursing home and died there. The two Bichons had not seen a veterinarian in years and were in terrible shape. Sadly, it was discovered that both have cancer. Beau is still holding his own. He is receiving love, attention and medical care here at White Dog Cottage. With your help, TBFR is determined to make the rest of their lives, the best of their lives.

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.

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. Still, 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.
