Little Big Dog Rescue

We are a 501c3 non-profit 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.

Brego (center) came to live at Dot's Really Old Dogs Home today. Brego is 13 years old. In an earlier life, Brego was hit by a car and suffered crippling injuries to his right front and back legs. He was not treated for his injuries. He can hobble on three legs and when he's worn out, mama carries him. Thanks to Rescued Rollers we have a wheelchair just his size.

Prissy, get you some vanilla ice cream when you get there! Please know that you were held in the hearts of hundreds of people who loved you. I only knew you for less than a week but in you, I saw true grace under pressure, and you have left an indelible impression on my heart. You were gracious to your doggy roommates despite that you were hungry and hurting. You never gave up. If it was something to eat, or a fresh clean cool bucket of water, you were going to get your face in it and try your darndest to have some. You must have been a formidable dog, a dog with heart, manners, joy, trust in humans, and most of all, an attitude of belonging, that we all have our place in this world and you were exactly where you belonged, relaxing at the side of your human with your paws crossed and your soul filled with peace. Cancer caused you hunger but you always expressed gratitude to the humans who tried to help you. You were more than a dog, you were a gift from whatever gods may be.
This is what Taunya LaDawn Sorrells wrote of the short sad story of a dog in distress: "Prissy has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. 🌈 As we knew, this form of cancer is considered very aggressive. She went to the amazing Dot Terry for her final hospice days of love. Monday and Tuesday she could only eat a little and it was noted Monday the masses had become infected. Antibiotics were once again administrated and although they helped some they were no match compared to the rapid growth. By midweek Prissy was no longer able to swallow even water. She let her hospice momma know it was time. And with that, she crossed the bridge knowing nothing but love and compassion for the last few months of her life. Thank you Yolanda Estep Mistie Church and Dot Terry for giving this girl her best final days ❤"

I am -- is it honored? -- just very very happy to be "shaking hands" with Prissy's savior by welcoming Prissy to the old dogs home. She certainly comes from a very loving place, a beautiful heart took her in last year, she was a stray. The beautiful heart called the phone numbers on Prissy's collar and the people said they didn't know of this dog. Prissy has unfortunately developed oral masses and is now a hospice dog.

This beautiful boy is Bear, a Walker/Collie mix. Bear is a large (90+ pounds) senior dog who has diabetes. He needs daily insulin injections. Bear has been a loyal family pet for eight years. He had one owner from the age of 14 weeks. Sadly, Bear's owner passed away and he is now available for adoption. He is neutered, house-trained, loves dogs, is sweet-natured and obedient. Bear doesn't know he has a medical condition. He is joyful, active, agile, loves to play ball, go for car rides, and do just about anything you're doing. Bear is located in Monterey VA. Adoption applications are available at www.littlebigdog.org.
