Katy outside

Last July 30th I picked Katy up in Statesville, NC and Sunday we celebrated our one year anniversary and Katy’s birthday since we don’t really know.  Katy has come such a long way.  Katy is affectionate, sweet beyond words and a very funny girl.  I love her more each day.  I wanted to send a recent pic or two.

Katy has gained about 3.5 pounds but is lean and active.  In the cool mountain air her coat is heavier and she is as soft as velvet.  Katy has been pure joy 😊

Thank you CBCR.

I’ve Been Adopted

Luna headshot

Luna (formerly Egan) is a 1 year and 5 month old pure blooded Border Collie. She was surrended by her owner along with her sister Ailsa. She is only 26 lbs and a smaller Border Collie but she does have a few lbs to gain. She is working on house breaking and doing very well. She is also working on crate training. She is also very calm indoors. She and her sister and slowly learning to be apart from each other. She be ready for adoption soon after she is spayed. She is up to date on vaccinees, heartworm negative and microchipped.

Luna will want to cuddle a little bit but is far more independent. She is very happy chewing on nylon bones and other toys. She is a little bit mischievous still. She loves to carry other random objects around the house and leave them in new places. She will sometimes try to chew on still like recyclables so she still needs crated if no one is there to watch her. She just hasn’t learned yet what is okay to chew on and what’s not. But she is working hard to learn what it takes to be a good house dog versus an outside dog.

Gabe headshot

Gabe is beautiful, soft, gentle, appreciative, calm, well mannered, house trained, up to date on shots, neutered, . He loves to go for walks, ride in the car, and mostly, be by your side! This perfect gentleman would make the ideal companion for an older person or just a kind soul who wants to make a difference. We are guessing Gabe is eleven or twelve. He ended up in a high kill shelter showing serious signs of neglect. He was rail thin, had painful skin and ear infections, muscle loss and general weakness. Even so, he smiled and gently wagged his tail when our volunteer went to meet him. He is SO happy to be part of his foster family – loves his supper and his bed and any attention offered. He’s putting on weight and is able to walk several miles a day (a mile or two would probably be fine, though he will need regular walks to stay fit). Takes lots of naps. He likes people and other dogs. He tells me he would chase a cat and his intentions might not be so pure. I don’t know if he could catch one, but a cat free home would probably be best.
