Ellie is a sweet girl who is estimated to be around 6 years old. She is brand new to our program and we will post more information as we learn more about her.
UPDATE - Ellie is doing great in her foster home with 3 fur siblings. She also loves when the grand-kids come over to visit. If you are interested in adopting Ellie please fill out the adoption application.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to CBS4 Miami and WPLG Local 10 for their awesome coverage of our special girl. Thank you from the bottom of our heart!
We recently received a call about a sick little boxer girl. The previous owner was going to euthanize her but reached out to us as a last resort which was suggested by his vet. We had our vet review the medical records and even though our vet confirmed the diagnosis we felt strongly that we needed to step in and try to help. Dolly is a 5 1/2 month old adorable boxer puppy that is just stinkin' cute. She spent some time at our vet VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital where the entire staff (and I do mean entire) has fallen completely in love with her. She now is in a wonderful foster home and loving her foster big fur sister. Sadly, Dolly has a liver shunt. She is responding extremely well to the oral medication she is taking but the sad reality is she needs a major surgery to save her life. The surgery is very expensive and is only performed at certain hospitals. We are lucky that the UF Small Animal Hospital in Gainesville is able to perform such a surgery. In a decision made with much thought, we have decided to try to raise funds to cover the cost of Dolly's life saving surgery. We realize this is a huge amount of money but we also feel we need to do what we can to save her. If you can help us save Dolly it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for wanting to help Dolly.
UPDATE - UF had a cancellation and we were able to get Dolly up to Gainesville for her surgery. There were several complications that increased the cost over $2000 more than what we planned on. Thankfully Dolly is doing well but has a long road of recuperation ahead of her. The complete update can be found on her youcaring page and we have detailed the entire trip on our facebook page.
TUCKER is (approximately) a 5 month old boxer puppy who has been bounced around way too much in his short little life. He is new to our program and we are still learning about him but we do know he is a happy little boy. Tucker is in need of a foster or adoptive home. Please note we do not adopt outside of our service area.
