November Hound of the Month – Tyler

Final Tyler 4Gershon Bachus with GBV Logo - layered WITH BorderHi, I’m Tyler! I’m 10 years old and I’m feeling like a much younger version of myself these days! But it wasn’t always this way. Just a few months ago I came to BHRSC weighing only 38 pounds. And boy was I hungry!

Back then I couldn’t eat – even though my stomach was growling – because my teeth were in really bad shape. The dentist who fixed me up said I had the worst case of neglected dental care he had ever seen! I had surgery to repair my nasal cavity, followed by getting almost all my teeth removed.

That all probably sounds like a lot, but I’m so much better off! It did take some time to recover and I couldn’t have done it without my foster family. They have shown me a kind of love I never could have imagined before, sitting with me to help me eat and take my medicine for weeks.

Thanks to them, I’ve gained a healthy amount of weight. I even look forward to mealtime! I’ve really gotten my grove back too! Now they say I’m spunky! I have so much more energy. I love to play and cuddle. At nighttime, I like to jump into bed to spoon. I’ve also learned that couches are quite comfortable, so I hope my new home has plenty of those! But more than anything else, I just want to find a family of people who will adore me and I promise to love them in return. One of my favorite ways to pass the time is by following my humans around. It’s so nice to have company.

And get this: I’m neutered, micro-chipped, up to date on my vaccines AND because of my Hound of the Month status, my adoption fee is 50% off! Please visit my Homeless Hounds page and give BHRSC a call today.

The Latest Update on Chloe!

image-9chloe*UPDATE*: Thanks to your enormous generosity we have raised $3,404.50 for Chloe, enough to pay her medical bills! We are happy to report that Chloe has moved to a foster home where she is being pampered through her recovery. Thank you for your support of BHRSC and hounds like Chloe, we would not be able to save these hounds without you! Arrhoo! 

Chloe had surgery to remove both of her blind and painful eyes yesterday. She was a trooper and the surgery went very well. While this is a major surgery for this little hound it will give her the chance at the pain free life she deserves. We are hopeful she will be back to her happy, loving self soon.

Please donate toward Chloe’s surgery bill. Thank you for your ongoing support. We would not be able to help hounds like Chloe without you!

*Update* Chloe Urgently Needs Your Help!

image (11)image (12)*UPDATE: We have raised about $1500 for Chloe so far which is great! Thank you so much for all of your generosity, we could not have done it without you. And while this is a great start, we still have a ways to go to cover the cost of Chloe’s bills. Please consider donating via the PayPal button below*

Last week we took in 8-year-old Chloe, who came to us with severe glaucoma and one eye painfully bulging, along with many other ailments.

She was scared, hurt and literally in the dark from blindness after being surrendered by the only owner she has ever known because their home was in foreclosure.

Despite all this, her demeanor remained undeniably sweet. She wanted nothing more than to be loved and feel secure. Chloe is happy whenever someone comes to visit, wagging her tail and desperately hoping for someone to guide her to a safe and familiar forever home.

A medical exam revealed that she is completely blind and both eyes will need to be removed. This surgery – in addition to several other treatments for skin and ear infections, dental disease and mammary gland mass removal – will cost several thousand dollars.

Chloe deserves our help. The health of her body should match the gentleness of her heart. But we need your support to make that happen. Please give today so we can put her on the road to recovery destined for the loving family of her dreams.

Jenn Boring!

Jenn spends many nights a week on her way home from work, with our hounds in boarding. Jenn walks them, give them belly rubs, hugs, anything she can do to help them while they wait to find a real home to call their own. Jenn also has provided wonderful reviews on the hounds, to provide an adoptive family a better perspective on a hound.

Thank you Jenn for spending so much of your time helping our hounds through transition to forever homes!
