Bruiser Goes to the Rainbow Bridge

Our deepest sympathy to foster mom Narelle Wolf, whose pup Bruiser recently crossed to the Rainbow Bridge.  Narelle unselfishly gave Bruiser love and comfort at the end of his journey.  He knew compassion in his last days with Narelle, and Narelle loved him deeply, although their time together was too short.

Narelle writes:

"I just received the most beautiful card from you and your directors.
I can't tell you how wonderful it felt to have this little guy remembered by you all.
I told Bruiser when he left that he was not a foster but my dog.
I truly felt that way and wanted him to know it
He really entered my heart in a big way.
You and the other angels at nebtr are the most incredible, hardworking
and classy group of people i have ever had the honour to work with.
Bruiser and I thank you and love all of you."

Update on Muno

Muno is loving life with the Hess family. 

He recently had a scratch on the cornea of his remaining eye, but after treatment by a doggie opthamologist,  it is now healing nicely.

Pam writes,

"I just got back from the opthamologist and Muno was much better than what she was expecting. She said our vet was right on target with the treatment. The scratch is deep about half way through the cornea. She can see that it's trying to heal itself so we're going to continue with the ofloxacin every three hours and the serum every two. We're going back first thing tomorrow so she can take another look. If it continues to heal we will avoid surgery... so keep your paws crossed!! She did see a cataract as well and we will address that after his scratch has healed."

We all wish the best for Muno for a very speedy recovery!

Georgie is Adopted

Congratulations to Heather Coursen and her foster Georgie!  Georgie has been adopted!  Special thanks to Heather for all the loving care she gave to this boy.

Heather writes:

"Georgie was adopted by Leslie and Chuck Archer. They adopted Tucker in the past from NEBTR and thought it was a good time to get another dog. Tucker and Georgie are attempting to settle in together - you know how it goes with adding a new dog to the house! Georgie is a very anxious dog who is upset easily by changes, such as moving to a new home. The Archers have been working with him and are so wonderful and devoted, trying to make Georgie as comfortable as possible in his transition from foster care to new home. They love him completely and Georgie is enjoying having someone to snuggle on the couch. And in time we're all sure Tucker will come around to him, too!"

New Foster Bklyn/Brook

Hi Everyone,

New Foster Bklyn or Brook here:
"Just wanted to thank everyone
for helping me escape my misery @ the puppy
mill. I am enjoying my freedom with my new
foster Mom and my foster dog sister's. I am
having fun for the first time in a very long time.
I never knew how much fun a dog could have
playing ball. I love my balls and I love to run
and run and play. More good things to come
my way. Stay tuned in for more adventures."

Check out my pic with me and my foster sibling!

The Football Season is Almost Here

Dezi is getting ready for her human brother's season, YUM, all those pigskins just waiting to be devoured. Says Dezi "I'm a really good runner, too, so fast they can't catch me. No need to worry about tackles, I just run between their legs. By the way, are there penalties for nipping an ankle or jumping on top of the pile?

New Foster Dash

A big welcome to Dash! He's a small, 17 lbs, sweetheart, just a youngster at four years old. Didn't get along too well with the kids in his former home so now he's relaxing in his foster home while becoming a bit more socialized.  He is being lovingly fostered by Heather Coursen.

Dash will be available soon for adoption so keep your eyes open for his posting if you would like to add lots of love to your home.
