Yes this little guy has a very sad face. And he has every right to be. You see Brownee lost his best friend in the world: his owner, his constant companion Mr.Murray. We first met them when Mr. Murray, a kind and compassionate elderly man who needed help with his dogs. He wasn't in the best health so he couldn't do much on his own, so we offered to get his dogs into safe enclosures (and off of their cables they were tied to) and have both dogs, Red and Brownee, taken to the vet for medical check ups. It turned out that Red had a serious infection in his lungs and before we could do any emergency work, Red passed away at the vet. Mr. Murray was beyond distraught and it was the though of losing Brownee that kept him strong. Though Brownee had some minor medical issues, he was going to be okay. Then a few weeks went by and we got a call that a "red Pit Bull microchipped to us" had ended up at the shelter here in New Orleans. When we went to pick him up, we realized that it was Brownee and we were puzzled because Mr. Murray would never leave Brownee alone. They were together all the time. When we called Mr. Murray's house an unfamiliar voice answered and identified himself as a relative. He informed us that Mr. Murray had passed away a few days prior and that when they went to feed Brownee, he had bolted out the gate and ran away. He knew that his best friend in the world had left him. He ran like the wind and didn't stop for anyone. Where he was going, we'll never know. But what we do know is that he's scared and lonely and misses his Mr. Murray terribly. Brownee is a gentle dog and perfect in the house. After we complete all of his medical treatments, he will be available for adoption but for now he must remain with us. He is still grieving but getting better with each day that passes. They say "time heals all". We just hope that someday "that time" will be with you.
Delilah is a Pit Bull/Dalmatian mix….well obviously, yes? She was raised in a loving home with kids, beautiful backyard, and anything a dog could ever ask for. Unfortunately due to an "accident", she got out of her yard and got herself into some trouble with a small dog in the neighborhood. The neighbors put the pressure on the owners to "get rid" of Delilah and they did. Like so many large breed dogs…well they can sometimes chase down little dogs. ESPECIALLY if they're running loose in a neighborhood. So poor Delilah paid the price (along with the small dog) and due to human error, she now finds herself homeless. She is PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT in the house, on leash, in the car….and the list goes on. A complete princess who needs a kingdom of her own. Please help us find a fairytale ending for her. We're hoping your home can be her new palace.
Proflie coming soon!
Magnoia is a german shepherd/lab mix who we rescued in the afternath of Hurricane Isaac. Her siblings have all found homes and now she is waiting for one of her own. She is a sweet happy pup who just needs a family to love.
Sven is a labrador/border collie mix we rescued with his brother Garland and sister Leticia this past summer. He's a sweet gentle soul who loves to learn & will make a wonderful companion. Sven is a sweet little guy but he has some confidence issues…he REALLY needs to live with another dog or 2 (male or female) and is afraid of children. He is in our puppy training class and is doing REALLY well. However a country life is more his style than city/suburbia….(bicycles, skateboards etc scare him)
Named after the mysterious swamp legend of the werewolf that inhabits the bayous of Louisiana, Rougarou (roo-ga-roo) is nothing like her namesake. This happy go lucky girl though found abandoned in a cabin in the swamp is an absolute doll. We're guessing that she is some sort of Lab mix and only weighs about 35 lbs. She is by far one of the sweetest dogs we've ever had here. Not only is she very playful and I guess you could say frisky, she is perfect in the house and very well behaved. She has been great with everything and everyone she's met and is so so so eager to please. If someone doesn't adopt her soon, I may scoop her up for my own. They say the swamps hold some mysterious powers and magic. Well this little "creature" is bound to cast a spell on you.
When we got word from a sweet elderly couple that a couple of stray dogs had simultaneously given birth to litters of puppies on their still Katrina destroyed lot, we could have never prepared for it. One litter had been born under a trailer while the other had taken refuge on the second story of an abandoned and completely destroyed house. It was only our first week in New Orleans and we weren't even fully set up to take a dog, let alone Moms with puppies. But once we got to the debris riddled lot in the Lower 9th Ward, we saw how serious the situation was. Two small and young Pit mix Mamas…with 20 puppies between them both!!! We crawled under the trailer first and began to pull the puppies out of the mud from a recent storm. Then we scrambled up the bare frame of what used to be a staircase in the abandoned house. It only took seconds for us to have trouble breathing and that's when we noticed the walls were almost solid mold. All the way up to the second story, the walls were green and drywall crumbling from where the water from Katrina had risen. Such an eerie feeling came over us but was short lived when we heard the muffled cries of what sounded like babies. As we tripped and struggled past all broken furniture and fallen down ceiling, we eventually found ourselves in a back bedroom. And there in the corner were a litter of tiny newborn puppies, COVERED in fleas. Despite their infestation, they were well fed as were all the puppies so these "Teen Moms" were doing a fantastic job taking care of their young ones. Once all were safe at the rescue, we realized that despite the good care they were giving, they were both struggling to take care of so many young ones. So between volunteers and a great foster home, some of the pups were farmed out to be bottle fed. Though many of the pups got homes, Steve and a few of his siblings remain with us. Steve is a silly, long legged, party boy. He loves being the center of attention and is the class clown. Though I'm not quite sure why we named him "Steve", he's one of our favorite dogs here. Though Steve can get adopted on his own, he has found a new friend here with us: Marie. If you're looking for a couple of fun dogs, Steve and Marie would be the ones. So whether its both these redheads or just Steve, your life is about the get just a little bit wilder….in a good way of course. Just a really cool and fun pooch!
If ever there could be such an act of cruelty from a human thus is the case with this little brother and sister. Found down by the industrial canal, rummaging for food were this brother and sister. If not by a chance meeting by one of our employees walking his own dog, Mickey and Mallory would've died within a few days. Looking like a pair of holocaust victims, they were literally walking skeletons desperate for any scrap of food they could find. Judging from the condition they were in, it looks like they had been without anything to eat for a couple of weeks. There are no houses down by the industrial canal so more than likely they were dumped down there to die a slow death. They are quickly bouncing back though and as typical Pit Bulls go, they are completely forgiving of all that human has done to them and desperately seek out more love than any other pups we've ever had. Micky is the shy one…he was skinnier than his sister Mallory and is a little more reserved…once you win his trust he's the sweetest thing ever…malllory moves at a million miles per second….she loves to chew, play and get into mischief….they do not have to be placed together as they live with a bunch of other dogs now & are just as happy playing with them as with each other.
