Little Big Dog Rescue

We are a 501c3 non-profit dog rescue formed by two women. Dot has been rescuing large-breed senior dogs for several years (these are the "Big" dogs of Little Big Dog Rescue). Jeanne Lou has been rescuing dogs who live outside on a line (these are the "Little" dogs of Little Big Dog Rescue). Our mission is to see all of our dogs in permanent loving homes. We cannot abide suffering.

Welcome Kim to LBDR!
Kim's owner passed away a month ago, leaving this 12+ senior Lab mix sleeping on friends' couches. She is a sweet girl and even Gus is happy to know her. Kim's caregiver said she was a very big dog (smile).

One of our rescue dogs wrote this last Christmas. He did not live to see another Christmas. Gideon had lived his life on a short chain and his toothless mouth bore witness to his boredom, agony of loneliness, frustration. Because of some compassionate humans, we were told about Gideon and we pulled him in time to give him almost two years of love and care as a beloved member of a human family.
If you see an old dog suffering in a shelter, let us know so we can get another Christmas letter like this one.

Zoey is a tough broad. She looks out for herself because she has experienced the suffering of a neglected sick dog. She suffered with untreated diabetes for months before her owner brought her to the vet to be euthanized. Her behavior indicates that in addition to medical neglect, Zoey suffered abuse as well. Yet, Zoey trusts humans to treat her with respect and caring. She flinches when frightened but when no blow comes, she relaxes and welcomes affection and attention.

Zoey is ten and a half years old. She is blind, has diabetes, Cushings, liver disease and pancreatic insufficiency. She is on insulin, Denamarin Plus, and Zypatt (pancreatic enzymes). Zoey eats about 12 cans (13.5 oz) of dog food per day. She is hungry every 90 minutes. She is underweight at 40 pounds. She loses weight easily, and gains weight at a very slow pace if at all. Zoey's major maintenance expense is her food, which runs about $450/month. Her medications and vet care run about $150/month.

Little Big Dog Rescue has had Zoey for almost a year and a half. She goes to the vet regularly for glucose checks. Her sugars have never been brought under control.

Zoey can be an only dog, or part of a pack. Her only demand is that dogs understand that she is blind. She advocates for herself with stern and clear vocalizations if a dog walks into her or steps on her. If the converse happens and the other dog has an aggressive reaction, Zoey will stand her ground and demand an apology.

So this is Zoey's toughness: she survives several diseases that would be life-threatening or at least debilitating to other dogs, but Zoey does not even know she is sick. She is happy and active, loves to go out, loves car rides and walks. She plants herself in front of her human and demands to be fed, even though she JUST ATE. Zoey will advocate for herself because she is a survivor. If you are looking for a special-needs senior dog to love and be awed by, you have to meet our Zoey. You can send her a message at Little Big Dog Rescue, or lbdr@htcnet.org. Please share!
