Update: July 16th, 2005 - Finally!  A Few Of Our Breeder Surrenders Are Here!
The call came early last week.  The breeder had four dogs she didn't need any more and if we didn't take them, they were going
to another breeder and we had to come get them immedately.  One of our fosters drove for six hours to get these little fluffs,
but from this day forward, they will live the life of cherished pets, not breeding stock.  Meet the lucky ones:  Lacy, Skipper,
Keyko and Marble.
This is Keyko - an
adorable little six
month old puppy.  He is
terrified of his new
surroundings and will
not come out from
under the table.  It's
important that we
don't push him right
This is Skipper.  He is a sweet little 9
pound boy.  Of course, he is very, very shy.
Meet adorable Lacy.  
She's around 18
months old and has
already had several
litters of puppies.  No
more - she only has a
life of luxury in her
future now!   Lacy has
demodex mange, a
genetic disease.  So,
all the litters she has
had the past few years
probably inherited this
hard to control disease.
And here's the baby - Marble. Lucky for this baby,
he's still unaffected by his prior life.  He runs
and plays and is a happy little 7 week old boy.
Update June 19th, 2005
First, I am so sorry that it's taken me two weeks to update you all on the breeder refugees.

So far, we have funds and foster homes for seven.  We've also established several affiliations with other rescue groups
throughout Texas and even nationally who are ready and waiting to help with these dogs.  WHEW!!  The breeder released a few
of the dogs last week and one of the other rescue groups in Tulsa was able to absorb them into their foster network.  

Now for the ridiculous part...after causing all of this "urgent" message thing, the breeder decided to try to sell the rest of the
dogs to make some money.  This has happened to us in the past - when we went after the seven little dogs from north Texas.  We
are expecting that sometime in the near future, she will call again and have to dump the dogs THAT day.  So, we're hanging
tight.  We'll figure it out when the dogs are available.

All of the funds that you wonderful, generous people donated, will remain available for these breeder dogs until they come
available.  Although we are leaving the fund open for now, we won't aggressively go after donations until we see that the
breeder is going to do the right thing and turn the dogs over to some rescue.

If you have any questions about this, please feel free to email me at TERESA@shihtzu-rescue.com.
May 28, 2005 - URGENT - 30 Mill Refugees need rescue BEFORE next week!!!
It always happens - about the time we ALMOST get caught up something like this happens.  I received this
message on Friday:

At a time when we're already overloaded with over 20 dogs in boarding, what can we do - so we're asking - no,
begging - for help.  A Tulsa rescue can handle a few of these, but is looking to us to help with as many as

Here's what we need before Wednesday!!

  1. We need funds to sponsor the remaining ten May shelter dogs.  
  2. We need funds to vet and board up to 20 of these little mill dogs.
  3. FOSTER HOMES - we need to place the 20+ dogs we currently have boarding so that we can vet these
    little mill dogs.  

As always, remember that we are a 100% volunteer organization. All funds donated go to the care of the dogs.

If you would like to donate directly to our veterinarian, please email me at TERESA@shihtzu-rescue.com
and I'll give you the directions.
