Cold Weather in Az.& Saving Urgent Dogs

We are having some nighttime lows of about 20 degrees and high winds, but it is clear and we are more fortunate than much of the country. The equines are getting extra hay to generate more body heat.  Some people mistakingly think they should increase grain in cold weather, but the truth is horses generate more body heat by digesting the complex carbs and fiber in grass hay. Wilbur got double rations of Elder Pet Pig food today, too.

The dogs don’t mind the cold and spent hours playing outdoors, but 5 of them wear their coats. The other 5  either have long hair or want nothing to do with dog clothing.

We sponsored and collected funds to save a nice dog in Texas this week. He was surrendered because his owner said he had grown “too big”. How ridiculous! He only needed $100 of vetting/neuter to be able to escape being put to sleep at the Irvine Shelter. The mgr. at Irvine is a wonderful gal and works hard to make it easy for rescues to take place. “Soni” goes to his foster home in Texas Friday and will be looking for a forever home.


We also are trying to save “Daisy”, a nice possible Carolina Dog. She is listed as a Shiba Inu mix, but the owner of a Carolina Dog pointed out that she appears to be a Carolina Dog. She is spayed, housebroken, heart worm negative and good with dogs & cats. JERAS can get her fees waived and she has $125 in a fund which could help transport her to a new home. Contact us if you might want to adopt her. She is also in the Dallas area at the Irvine Shelter.

Daisy needs a home!

    I would like to know more about Daisy. Size, weight, behavior with adults and children. Can transport be arranged to Baltimore or if not that to Memphis?

    I saw her on Facebook, on Rachel Nagher’s page. She has perhaps 100 photos of Carolina Dog/American dingoes, which Daisy resembles to a T–she’s classic, actually. They are in the same family as Shibu Inu, so that’s a really smart ID. Also see the Carolina Dog Research and Conservation Project, for which Rachel is a researcher. Lots of info about CD/AD.

    All I know is she is ~ 2 years, spayed, HW neg, friendly, good with dogs & cats. PLEASE help us find her a home. we can get her out of the shelter at N/C and she already has a fund of $125 to help her. She is 35 #. Transport is always available by posting to http://www.uship .com. If posted as a “charity” you get the best rate. We can help with the details. Email Laura at the shelter to ask more questions.
