We were notified yesterday of a very sad situation that has occurred here in Texas with a rescuer that works with many large-breed rescue groups having passed away at his property. In his care at the time were over 50 dogs who had been without food or water for about a week with his passing. Liz Robles of Cane Corso rescue immediately mobilized her network of friends, volunteers and other rescue groups like us to get to these dogs immediately and begin triage. We found out that there was a 10-year-old female Dogue de Bordeaux named Miley Moo that was in the home with this rescuer when he passed, and she was alive and needed to be rescued. We were told that she was a very sweet girl and of course we said that we would help with her. We knew that there were many other dogs in need on the property and if we could help with another couple of them then we would be happy to do so. This morning Travis and Ricky made the trip down to meet with Liz on the property and were so happy to meet this old girl and Travis texted us that she was a wild and silly girl! She is overweight despite the last week of no food, and it is suspected that she may have a thyroid issue so we will get Dr. Reno on that Monday. In addition to Miley Moo, Travis and Ricky took in an older English Mastiff girl and a neutered, mixed breed boy who I will introduce separately.
The very sweet English Mastiff girl that was loaded up on the bus to head to the Sanctuary is Charlotte. Travis thinks she weighs between 80-90lbs and is about 6-8 years old. She is a very smart girl and food motivated. Please welcome this big girl to Dog Ranch Rescue.
Charlotte had her dental yesterday and she got a perfect report card from the vet with her behavior.
Charlotte is going back to the vet on Thursday for her dental. Charlotte does not do well at the vet and makes some pretty serious moves towards the techs so we have been working on getting her ready with conditioning her to wearing a muzzle. She flat out but the muzzle at the vets office so it was important that we work on making this a non issue. Lots of practice, lots of hot dogs and lots of positive reinforcement and we think she’s all ready now.
Shy Charlotte has come a very long way while with us at the sanctuary. She’s a happy happy girl.
