Hi dear friends,

We found out about another doggie in need from my buddies at Qwill and Friends. Please go over to their blog and read about Baxter and make a donation if you, if did. Every dog reserves a home.

Here is a little of his story:

Baxter, is a 5 year old pure bred Border Collie who was surrendered to the Lake County Ohio Dog Shelter when his elderly owner could no longer care for him and his 8 year old border collie companion. It is evident that Baxter and his companion were left to themselves for much of their lives. Due to having very little socialization with dogs, his chances of adoption from the shelter are near Zero. I fully believe that his issues can be turned around with an experienced hand and positive training. Baxter has very little time left and needs to be pulled from the shelter ASAP - before Wednesday. However, due to parental restrictions I can not foster Baxter long term, and am working desperately to find a rescue with foster space for him.

My sincerest thanks from the very bottom of my heart go out to anyone who can help me save this dog. Please re post and link to this entry as much as necessary. I am truly sorry if this entry offends anyone, that is not my goal at all, just trying to save a dog who has pulled on everyone of my heart strings. A dog who needs a second chance.


Thanks....Mona's Mommy, Sarah.

DawgMom says it might be a dumb question, but has anyone called the Border Collie Club of America & asked for help? We know the Bullie club will do thier best to pull any Bullie out of a shelter & foster it. Worth a shot.
