We are a family of three, Dan, the keeper of a hubby, our son, Derick, and myself. We are a home based rescue starting our what feels to be our umpteenth year. You learn tough lessons in this endeavor. I have 6 dogs of my own, 6 labs, and 1 Irish Shorty.
I rescue because I have a passion, especially for labs, but don't turn my nose up at other breeds. We have rescued quite an array of pooches over the years. We have done Pugs, Bloodhounds, Flat Coat Retrievers, Goldens, Border Collies and a number of mixes. Far be it for me to let a puppy die. Pregnant moms are a big concern, and a main priority. We are set up for the whelping process, and are very experienced in that area. Also our final goal is to get them spayed and ready for a future good life that they so deserve.
Sadly, I can't take in Pitbulls, Dobermans, Rottis, Shepards here as people tend to be scared of the breed and judge them on their reputations, so it makes it difficult for me to find them the right homes. Stigmas attached to these wonderful breeds have more to do with the owners than with these beautiful animals. Also homeowners insurance is making it increasingly difficult to help certain breeds.
