Bella was abandoned at a vet’s office we use for our foster dogs in very poor health due to untreated diabetes and Cushing syndrome. Bella is also blind due to the diabetes. The vet’s office stabilized her and asked that we take her into rescue to find an adopter. Since entering foster care, Bella has lost some weight and is learning to walk outside on a leash with her halo. Bella is a remarkable dog with a huge, loving personality. We are still seeking the right home for her where she will be loved for a lifetime and her medical needs met. She remains on Petfinder. Meet Bella here.

Roxie came into our rescue from a shelter in New Castle, Indiana, where she had demonstrated some unusual behavior and fear aggression, making her “unadoptable.” Without a rescue stepping in, a dog like Roxie would most likely have been euthanized. After evaluation in foster care, we learned that Roxie had severely luxating patellas. Roxie had her surgery on April 8 and has been resting and recovering well. Since getting her stitches out, she’s been cozying up to her foster brother, Sebastian! Our hope is that the surgery will eliminate her pain and help improve her overall well-being and behavior, making her a dog much more likely to be adopted.
