THREE RESCUED RETRIEVERS

RESCUE ME.

Heya Hounders,
It's good ole Jubey-Jubes, Jubal. Thought I'd pay homage to three of our rescued Golden Retrievers that came to be Bumpass Hounds via Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary in Delray, WV. This taint all of our rescued dogs but it's a start. Now as y'all look at these picture, try to remember that these dogs were all at or on their way to being homeless and living in a shelter; they had been giv
en up by their human guardians.

Homer J. is our oldest pack member at 9 years old. He came to us directly from AHGRR after having been taken out of a shelter where he had stagnated. Homer was extremely well behaved when he arrived and we had to work on him for month's to lower him to our standard of behavior. He waited to come in until invited! He wouldn't get on the bed or furniture! He didn't beg or use sad eyes or anything! Boy was he a mess. Luckily, we've got rid of all of Homer's bad habits and now he's a normal dog like the rest of us.









Secondly we have have Ms. Sophie who dad was set to transport up to AHGRR when we all decided that we should foster her here rather than send her up to AHGRR. Then we decided that we'd induct her into the pack as a permanent member and just dump the "foster" facade; who were we kidding anyway?









Last, but not least, is our latest rescued pup, radar, the blind golden Retriever Puppy. Radar was born blind and with no tail. he also developed the Parvo Virus but was diagnosed early, treated for cure and quarantined for 4 weeks. He is growing up and seems perfectly healthy and he's getting along well even with his disabilities.









And that's about it for today. Y'all have a great weekend. I had an adventure today. Maybe dad will let me tell y'all about it real soon.

Hi Jubal - I'm not sure which one of you was trying to give Radar away, but I wasn't fooled. You've got a couple of real softies there taking in one pup after another... not to mention the darn cats. You have a great weekend too!

It's so easy to tell that each of these dogs is well l♥ved and happy, although I'd take one in a heartbeat if you decided you didn't love them anymore☺ Their happy smiles are adorable.

Our Chief gets very said when she reads about Dogs given up by their guardians. She couldn't give us all up ... not if she can helps it!

We hope they all find good loving homes soon.

We're all rescues. I'm our oldest at 13-ish. Then Dave at 11, Ammy at 10 and Zim is the puppy at 9. Dave was 4 when he got here. Except for being a counter-surfer, he came with the annoying habits of retrieving, coming when he's called, and walking nicely on a leash. I've broken him of coming when he's called, but not the others. Still working on him. He's such a lug.

STEP UP TO ADOPT A PET

If you can, please consider opening your home to a homeless animal, preferably a dog or cat or other domesticated animal; livestock does better on farms and wild animals do better in zoos and parks. Your local Humane Society or SPCA or Animal Shelter has a wide selection of could be, should be, pets looking for new homes. If you can't adopt, perhaps you can at least become a sponsor. We'll show you how to help out Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRRS) on our blog page, but you can help out any organization of your choice, but please help; contribute or volunteer.

As a sponsor, you will receive updates about your "special" Golden, and will be mentioned in our quarterly newsletter as the dog's sponsor. We also accept Paypal donations.
