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!

***Urgent Update on Saving Snoopy!***

First off I want to thank each and everyone of you that took the time to speak up for Snoopy! not all Pit Bulls are as lucky as he is, and not all of them get a second chance at life! I just reiceived word that Snoopy is free!!!!!!! he is out of impound and going home with his daddy and its all because of people like you, so please never forget the importance of sharing and getting involved! you all had a hand in Saving Snoopy! THANK YOU FOR THAT! I will add the picture of Snoop going home!
 HOW GREAT IS THAT!
From a facebook animal lover Larisa Sharikin:
We have an EMERGENCY on our hands and we need all of the help we can get!! I have a friend that is in Florida that was walking his dog Snoopy. A woman was walking her dog at the same time and her little dog got away from her and bit Snoopy. Snoopy bit the dog back in defense and is now in a shelter and the state of Florida is deeming him a dangerous dog and wants to put him down. Snoopy’s 77 ye…ar old owner has appealed the case and the appeal is on the 25th of this month! We need an animal rights lawyer and as many people as possible to get involved to save Snoopy and return him to his senior owner! Hi Everyone. I went to check on Snoopy at Halifax Humane Society.First of all I want to say thank you for all people who called them. At first the staff did not know who Snoopy was or that he was actually there, so they wanted me to apologize for misinformation. Snoopy has a nice bed AND a blanket in his kennel. He looked fine..not marks on him at all. He does look scared and confused, he definitely wants OUT. What we need to do now is contact the City of Deltona people. The Humane Society is only holding him. I will get the contact info for who we need to contact and will post that.Halifax is a wonderful shelter. Yes, it is a kill shelter. But they are actively looking to become a no kill shelter.The staff is very caring and do a great job. The community is very involved with this shelter and there are many volunteers there that walk the dogs and such. The back room that I was taken through had tons of dog and cat food that people had donated. Every dog has bed and blanket and the kennels are very clean.So, I will now work on starting a Facebook Page for Snoopy and getting info to people. Please do not call the Humane Society since they are not involved in the outcome of this case. HERE IS ALL THE CONTACT INFORMATION. PLEASE CALL, WRITE AND FAX. THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT THAT THE CITY OF DELTONA HEARS OUR VOICES. PLEASE BE POLITE AND RESPECTFUL.:

Snoopy also has friends on Facebook, they can be reached via the following thread:
Remember folks Snoopy is only there because of his appearance and breed, if he had been a poodle, or golden lab he would not be where he is now and in our hearts we all know that to be true!
Snoop…, hang in there buddy! You have people you don’t even know stepping up right now! To all those who have stepped up for a strangers dog, thank you! Larisa… You are an awesome lady! Thanks to you too for working to get the info out so quickly and for going to see snoopy, to make sure he was ok!
