3-25-10 MS (Mississippi) Pearl comes into rescue after a long plane ride up to Michigan.
We heard that this Alabama pup was in need back in January, yet the owner did not keep in contact or reply to our offers to help this pup. We finally offered to fly the pup here at our expense, since it seemed that she was in trouble. An extra 60 days went by, where we heard that the owner "gave" her away 2 different times where it didn't work out. All of this was not necessary, because the offer to take her in was there this whole time.
The pup was described as deaf and this is what they described in their email: "we are having a hard time with the puppy and she is being left alone all day with nothing or no one. My brother-in-law is tired of dealing with her and wants her gone."
The pup had no vetting, and in order to get her transported she needed a rabies vaccination and health certificate which her owner did not do for her. But, the owner did give her away again (third time that we know of) but this time to the right person who knew we were keeping a place open for her. This nice person got her vaccination vetting done, cared for her for 2 weeks, and took her to New Orleans to the airport. We are very thankful to her guardian angel.
MS Pearl appears to be about 6 months old, and while she was terrified during the plane ride, she is showing us she is quite a smart girl. Everything is brand new to her, she doesn't know a collar or a leash or a treat or a crate. She is showing us that while she may be that oyster in the way she was raised, inside she has the potential to be the beautiful Pearl.
Pearl is spayed now, as we waited for her to settle in before having that done. This girl LOVES the swimming pool (and MUD) so we are requesting that her new home has a wading pool for her to play in.
Pearl likes the dog pack, and is making friends. Our adoption fee covers the spay / neutering, heart worm testing, rabies, distemper combo, microchipping and any other medical that a dog may need. Please consider a rescue that comes to you with all of the routine medical done. Deaf dog adoption require a fenced yard.

Levi: UPDATE 6-21-08 - Levi has been in rescue for nearly 2 weeks now. He is walking on a leash and loves to go for his walks at my workplace with Red Winston. Poor Levi gets car sick on the way to work - we will work on this as he will go to work with me 5 days a week. He is scared and doesn't know what is going on. He is comfortable enough in the office to take treats, sleep in a crate, chew on toys and play with Winston. Levi is very alert, cautious, and leary of new situations and people. We will socialize him as much as he will tolerate on a good level. His crate training is going very well as he keeps a clean crate all night long. He still scares easily and is not comfortable being loved on very much. We are very pleased with the progress he is making! He's not ready to leave rescue yet but is making great strides. Levi will need a securely fenced in yard, and a person who will continue his confidence building and socialization. No children under 12yrs old please. Another very stable dog in the home would benefit him also. ACD experience will be an absolute must for Levi.
UPDATE 7-4-08: Levi is progressing nicely and is ready for the next step into someone life as a forever companion. He is very alert and cautious about new situations and people. Levi is the first to come up and investigate something new and get a treat. He will not allow you to pet him unless you are holding the leash and he can't go anywhere. We are working on that. But while at work with me, if I say "want to go outside?" he is right there waiting for the leash to be attached. He walks good on a leash and is so happy about it. He has very good eye contact and watches your every move. He is crate trained and doing well with his housetraining. He LOVES to play with other dogs. Levi needs a person who understands he needs time to gain trust in you. Someone who will continue his confidence building and show him the sky is not falling. Food is the way into this pups trust.
10-17-08 Levi has been in Michigan rescue since August 1, 2008 and is making more progress. We are happy with his attitude and the fact that his eyes seldom leave ours. Levi WANTS to be the best buddy but doesn't know how to go about it. Levi LOVES to go for walks and checks in every couple of seconds. Levi LOVES to run along side the 4 wheeler and he doesn't have time to think about being afraid. Levi likes a routine, and takes a bit of understanding while he gets comfortable with a new change. When Levi gives away his worries, his person will be blessed with a great young man.
