I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Mayzie's Rescue Me Week, Day 3 (and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to two of my favorite S'tars!)

Beside honoring Maizie's Grampa I'd like to honor two of my favorite S'tars birthdays
(I am blessed to have 4 wonderful sisters and one amazing brother. They are all my favorites!)
by featuring dogs of their special breeds.

My sister Pam, whose birthday was yesterday, loves her Briard, Booker.
Briards are not a common breed. But there are those needing rescueing. desperately in this case.

Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg) Sex: Male

There's not much information available on this guy. The fact that he's stripped leads me to believe he was in pretty rough shape at intake. The way that he's standing makes me think he may be a senior.
This pup is located at City of Los Angeles North Central Animal Shelter,
a high kill shelter in Cypress Park. He's available through LA Animal Services

My sister Deb's birthday is today. She has two chihuahuas, Moe and Molly.

Deb tells me that chihuahuas are not a common sight in shelters, on the east coast.
That is just the opposite, here, in the southwest. It seems to me that about every other dog you see is at least part chihuahua.

I scoped out the chihuahuas at Lied, a high kill shelter in Las Vegas.Their wards are adopted through The Animal Foundation. Currently, the Animal Foundation lists 75 chihuahuas available for adoption.

Meet Seth

Again, there's not much information. He's an adult, male and tri-colored.
Adoption fees for Seth include his first series of vaccines, neutering, microchip identification a complimentary five-pound bag of Science Diet pet food, and list of participating veterinary clinics that will provide a complimentary wellness checkup with your receipt.

ADOPT! Don't shop!!!

We're helping Mayzie to celebrate her Grampa's life and love of animals by pawticipating in her Rescue Me Week project.

Dear Wonderful S'tars
Happy Every Day!

That Briard looks like a gentle soul, I pray that he will find a good forever home soon. And it is true, there are not that many Chihuahuas in shelters up here. My friend's mother has been searching for one to adopt for the longest time now. Sad, seeing as there are too many on the West coast needing good homes.
