Addison

Addison came to BHRG from North Georgia where she had been turned in with her breeding partner, Colton, because she was no longer useful to a backyard breeder. She was in pretty rough shape upon arrival. 12.5 - 13 years old and riddled with Breast Cancer. You could see her ribs and was so thin - her boobies drug the ground and had sores on them. She also had many lumps and bumps on her back. The only good news was that she was heartworm negative! Sweet girl, you have seen your last days of ever putting up with that nonsense again!

Addison had 4 different surgeries from September to December of 2020. The first one was almost her last as she stopped breathing during surgery for her spay. Our great Docs brought her back to life and fixed her up over the next 4 months. In between those surgeries, Addison came home to be my Foster. It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be for her. She was scared all the time and would hide under the deck outside. I had to beg her with treats and very calm voice to come inside. Over the last 6 months, she finally came to trust me and knows she won't suffer any more abuse. Whatever life she had prior to BHRG is still in the background though - she runs from most people and has a tendency to hide when I have company. She also runs from loud noises and is scared of anything new. Addison needs a quiet home where she can relax and feel safe. Other dogs are okay but she tends to get overwhelmed and will keep to herself and hide. Recently, storms seem to bother her as well - she will want to be really close to you.

So far, she has been the perfect house guest. No accidents and is trained with a doggie door. She has dry eye and will have to have eye drops for the rest of her life. It is also important that any bumps or lumps that come up must be checked out as soon as possible due to her history of cancer. Our vets feel like they removed any and all cancer and surgery was curative but there is always a chance of recurrence in some other form. Crossed paws that doesn't happen! She loves belly rubs and nice soft beds to sleep in. Addison also loves to talk to you while you are getting her breakfast and dinner ready… as in you aren't moving fast enough, woof woof please hurry up! I know the first 12.5 years of her life were bad but the rest of her life will be amazing; she just needs lots of love, understanding, and patience!

Joy

Joy needs a foster home! Could you use a little "Joy" in your life? She originally came in to the care of BHRG 5 years ago. She's older now, but still spunky as she demands to be the queen of her castle and the only canine her adult humans adore (she doesn't appreciate the young two leggers either). She's on anti seizure meds and they're working quite nicely for her. If you have a home that fits this description, Joy will gladly do her best to love you the rest of her days.

Seneca

Sweet Seneca is an older tri-colored girl, but we aren't sure exactly how old just yet (we think she could be 8-10 years old but that's a guess). She's as sweet as can be and appears to be potty trained and doggie door savvy. She did get along with her emergency foster's pups too!

We got an SOS call over a weekend from Good Samaritans who happened to see her owners loading up their moving truck and getting ready to leave without this sweet girl! They pointed out that they had forgotten to load up their pup and were told if they wanted Seneca, take her, because they had fully intended to abandon her there all alone. Being the basset loving people they are, the Good Samaritans scooped her up and got her to the safety of BHRG. She was covered in ticks when we got her. Seneca has been checked out by a BHRG vet and is now getting settled in her foster home.
