Meet Tazio! He has come so far since we first got from the shelter. Most of his progress is due to Mark and Natural Dog Training (NDT) , but many people gave him a second chance. He is now looking for a home that is a lot more balanced than his previous. He needs someone to continue with this training method with him. He's approx 2 yrs old , cane corso , neutered , UTD with shots and would be best an only dog just for the purpose of someone giving him undivided continued work he needs. We would not recommend small children bc he is still a spaz of a puppy and getting over fear of hand, but as you can see his relationship with people is changing and he has so much to offer if interested please contact Tracy with HeartsHerd to fill out an application 469-9220.

We want to give a big shout out to the people who’ve supported us so far on this fundraising know who you are and we greatly appreciate it! 😀❤️🐾

There’s still plenty of time to order your fun tee shirt and all proceeds goes to Miss Sugar’s medical needs. She’s doing so well but more tests are needed to find out if her special food and medication is reducing the bladder stones and UTI’s. Her weight is dropping and the vet will assess if she can safely handle a spay surgery and mammary tumor removal. More posts to come.

Get your shirt and wear in Sugar style! Ordering deadline is November 6th. If you’re not interested in a shirt, you may make a monetary donation via the link or by using the DONATE button at the top of our page. Mention TEAM SUGAR on your online donation form. Monetary donations are tax deductible (we will send a form).

Hello followers and supporters of our rescue.

We would greatly appreciate your vote as a rescue/shelter that deserves proceeds from the sale of John Gray’s book. See link; comment on his post not our’s.

Thank you! ❤️🐾🐴🐗🦆🐐

As you know I am donating my proceeds from 'God Needed a Puppy' (a buck a book) to animal shelters so we can help pups like Keller.
To date I have sold a little more than 7,000 books. When I had sold 5,500 I had the bank cut 11 $500 checks & sent them to shelters in NY, MA, Virginia & Vermont.
It's time to send 3 more checks of $500 each.
Under THIS POST give me the name & website of a shelter you'd like to nominate to receive my help. I will look them all over over the weekend, consult with my pet expert & pick three to mail a check to next week. I want these to be shelters I haven't already helped.
As I sell more books..... more checks will go out 🐾🐾.

Hello everyone! We are selling really nice tee shirts to raise money towards our dog, Sugar's, rising medical costs. We recently posted about Sugar and her saga from shelter surrender to rescue. Who would surrender this sweet pittie at 10 years of age? Well, we shortly found out that she had a bunch of medical issues however Sugar is resilient and thriving in foster care with Kari and Don. She is doing so well with her foster brothers 🐾🐾.

Please consider helping us raise funds by proudly wearing this fun shirt! Unisex and women's tee shirts available.

Sugar came to us over weight and she is slowly losing pounds but she and our animal community is "Large & in Charge!"

This fundraiser ends November 6th. If you're not interested in the shirt, you may still donate via the link or directly by using the DONATE button at the top of our page!

Hooray for Jackson & Widget, our bonded pair of Maltese! They were adopted by Cindy.

They were in our rescue since last February. It took a little while to find the perfect home because Jackson has cardiac issues although he’s controlled on medications and they needed to be adopted together.

Happy tails to the both of them! ❤️🐾
