UPDATED MAY 16TH: It turns out that Ginny is housebroken, crate trained and loves both people and other dogs. Our original assessment that she seemed to be afraid of other dos may have been that she was simply very nervous and frightened in the cold, scary shelter environment. But since being in foster care she has demonstrated her enjoyment of four-legged friend and would love to have a home with a playmate.
Hi my name is Ginny. I’m a 4 year old lab/pittie mix and I desperately need a new home. Although you’d never know it from my personality, I have had a really rough life. I was used as a breeding dog and all of my babies were taken from me most likely to be used in fights. Once I was no longer useful, I was dropped off at a high –kill shelter where I suffered in a cage at the very end of the row for 3 months. Day after day the few people who saw me just passed me by probably because of my breed when all I really wanted was someone to love me. If they would have just taken me out of my cage they would have seen that I’m just a lover, I love to lick, I love to roll over and get my belly rubbed, and I’m really smart and learned basic commands on my own. Finally though, on the day they were going to put me to sleep, my foster family agreed to get me out of there and let me live in their back yard. It’s getting hot though and I really need a home of my own. I am a little bit scared of other dogs so it’s probably best I live in a house with only one other dog or none at all. Either way, I will be your best friend. Now, when my foster family let’s me in at night, I follow them everywhere!
| |Do you have some concerns because this beautiful girl is a member of what some call the 'Bully Breeds?' I'd like to share some important information with you. First of all, please have a look at the list of dog breeds recognized as bully breeds. Once you look at the list you might be confused. You might wonder why some of these breeds are considered bully breeds. So take a moment to learn what the term bully breed really means. And if you still have some concerns please take a moment to see how well Pit Bull type dogs did on standard temperament testing. Their scores are better than so many popular breeds. And even if a Pit Bull is not for you, please take a few moments to review some of this information and become educated about these wonderful dogs. | |
Ginny is spayed, up to date on all her shots and microchipped. She weighs about 45 pounds, is very active and well behaved on the leash. Overall she's just a loving and adorable dog! If you would like to meet Ginny, or learn more about her, please contact Amy at 702-234-9860 or via email at email@example.com.
Meet Jabo, Lady, Sadie, Mojo and Trixie!!!
I received the following message from the Delta Animal Clinic begging for help too find foster families for their homeless animals while the facility under goes repairs to the damage caused by the rough winter weather:
"Delta Animal Clinic is located in Rolling Fork, MS. Due to damage from flood water/wind/ice this winter to floors/roof/ceilings, repairs and/or renovations to Delta Animal Clinic will begin as soon as possible. We desperately need the homeless dogs and one cat in our care to be moved elsewhere, but we have nowhere else to house them. Any help we could get would be greatly appreciated from people willing to adopt or foster until adoption, rescue organizations willing to take them and find homes for them, transports willing to help get these dogs/cat to rescue organizations. We also need help “finding” rescue organizations or “no kill” shelters willing to consider receiving these dogs/cat. The dogs in need of help are Lady, Sadie, Mojo, and Trixie.

Tessa the Chow mix puppy has been adopted!!! Can we help the rest of these wonderful dogs find foster or adoptive families?
Meet Jabo and Tess. Jabo is an adult male yellow labrador retriever. Tess appears to be a chow mix puppy of approximately 8 - 10 weeks of age. These two were found together, possibly dumped, near the Double Quick in Rolling Fork MS. Both dogs were starving, dehydrated and covered with fleas. And Jabo had an injured leg that has now been tended to. We don't know if they were dumped together or found each other. But they are now in the care of Delta Animal Clinic and need a foster or adoptive family quickly.

Jabo was very happy to hop into the vehicle when he was found and really asks to be petted. He has clearly been someone's pet and knows love. Tess, on the other hand, was quite skittish and afraid when picked up. But after being held for a bit she fell asleep in someone's arms like the baby she is, was content when crated for the duration of her nap, and didn't shy away when a volunteer came in to remove her from the kennel. So she may have simply been frightened about being lost. She did warm up to the people at the clinic fairly quickly.

Lady was born in April 2011 and is almost 2 years old. She is very muscular and strong. She is very playful but not aggressive. She is believed to be an American Staffordshire Terrier. Lady is current on all shots and has been on heartworm preventative since she came to us. Please help us find her a good home.
Sadie appears to be a Pittie mix and has been with us about 6 months. We have no idea how old she is, but she has had at least one litter of pups. She arrived severely malnourished with ribs, backbone, and hip bones protruding. Her ears were covered with sores and crusted blood from severe fly bites. She was also heartworm positive and has undergone treatment. She has recovered nicely from the trauma and is very sweet. She has never shown any aggression of any kind. She just needs somebody to love her.

Mojo was born in May 2011 and is almost 2 years old. He appears to be a chocolate lab mix and was found on the side of the highway and has been with us since he was a puppy. He is sometimes afraid of loud noises outside, but other than that is a wonderful dog and would make a great pet. He is current on all shots, has been on heartworm preventative since he was a puppy, and has been neutered. Please help us find him a good home.
Trixie is probably a Cattle dog or Red Heeler mix. She has only been with us a short while…..she was picked up by the animal control officer in December 2012. She’s a young dog (probably born around July 2012) and was negative for heartworms on arrival. She is current on shots but has not been spayed. She is very sweet, playful, and vocal. She needs a great home!
