For the love of Renton

I came across this today on Facebook;

Please help me find a GOOD home to go to very soon. I was saved from a very scary place by this wonderful group and my foster daddy. But now he has to move far away and can’t take me with him. I will need another place to lay my handsome head and eat my food. Will you give me that place? Will you be my new family? I will be your loyal furry companion forever and ever. If you like me (and I just KNOW I’m gonna like you), fill out an application here: http://www.saveaboxer.org/forms/form_humanverify?formid=2115 Please please share far and wide – my time is running out and I have to find a new home to go to very SOON! Love, Renton ♥

I have spoken with Renton’s foster dad and here are a few things he would like to share:

I’m moving to Seattle in a couple weeks.  Currently I’m in Holiday, FL, just north of Tarpon Springs. Renton is a great pup, but would do better in an environment where someone is home more often than not.  When I first got him, he had severe crate/separation anxiety issues, but he’s doing well in a crate now.  He just doesn’t seem to do too well in the crates at the vet’s office.  It’s also best to keep him active.  I walk him twice a day, each 3 miles.  He seems to get along with most other dogs, but had some resource protection issues when we first pulled him.  He and my dog Fiona get along very well together.  They play quite rough and to the casual observer, his wrinkling of his nose and teeth baring, combined with vocals may be interpreted as aggressive, but they’re not.

Renton is located in florida as stated so if you live in Florida and would like to make this charmer a part of your family please contact the rescue to fill out an application for foster or adoption today!

So it sounds like Renton has come a long way thanks to Mark, here are some of this handsome boys pictures as well:

Please share with anyone you trust that loves dogs, let’s help Renton get the fur-always home he deserves!

Change to the “Dog of the Week”…. An update.

I’m baaaaaack!

Phew!!! It’s been a grueling couple of weeks in the dog training course and it looks like my next section will be a big one too, but I’ll try to keep the posts coming more often.

I am sad to say that There didn’t seem to be a lot of interest in the dog of the week, Thank you so much to all the great families that sent in all those amazing pictures of their dogs and puppies, without you these dogs would be lost!

Thanks for showing the world what love and responsible pet ownership really means, you guys rock!

So with that said I am changing things up a bit, rather than feature your dog photo’s, I thought I would feature a dog in need, rescue’s and fosters, you are welcome to send in your pictures please make sur you send a photo, and complete contact info as well as the city, state or province, and Country as well. Don’t forget to add some details about the dog, everybody like to have the story behind the picture!

You can send them to apitomesblog@shaw.ca The goal will shift from showcasing the breed to saving them from certain death in some cases, in shelters and pounds and we all know that pit bulls make up the highest percentage of shelter dogs.

Today’s little gem will break your heart, make you fall instantly in love and inspire you to get involved! As far as I know he has no name so I have taken it upon myself to dub him Esperodo loosely translated it means “He has hope” in the basque language.

With out further ado here is Esperudo:

This emaciated boy wondered into Jennifer Marcel (SNARR adoptions coordinator) neighborhood and her husband picked him up. Looks like a new SNARR baby…. the vet said He is 12 weeks old, 12lbs, a broken k-9 baby tooth, dehydrated, loaded w…ith hook worms and will need possible surgery to repair the hack job done to his ears. To help with his care donations can be made through chipin http://snarr1.chipin.com/tonka or via PayPal @ snarr_1@Yahoo.com or through our website www.snarranimalrescue.org

Please help me to help SNARR to get this boy the help he needs and ultimately help him find a safe, loving, and fur-always home.

Thanks everyone for your patience and support while I have been busy at school, you guys ROCK LIKE NEW SOCKS!

So the dog of the week shall now be dubbed “Rescue Me Weekly” and may sometimes showcase more than one dog depending on urgency.

Have a great weekend!
