Bogey is a red and white fellow who recently had a mast cell tumor and hemangiosarcoma removed. The vets did get clean margins on both, but his undercarriage is riddled with hemangiosarcoma spots.

Daniel came to BHRG from the shelter in Floyd County where his owners left him. This red & white boy is 13 years old. He is healthy, neutered, and ready for adoption. He loves all kinds of attention. He likes to play with the other dogs in our home. He is nearly housetrained and is doing well with his crate training. Even though he was left to fend for himself, he hasn't displayed any food aggression towards the other dogs. His ears are so long that they lay in his water bowl when he is drinking. He loves to go for walks with his foster family and walks very well on his leash. He's very loving, has been starved for affection, and really needs a stable home. We think his name should be "George", as in Curious George, because he is always snooping around and looking for something to investigate. He is super-protective of his "person" and needs a dog-savvy, "alpha" person who can discipline him and keep him from being a "brat". A home without children would be best for Daniel.

Evita is 8 years old. She has been around children but is not anxious to be with them. She doesn't respond to their attempts to play with her. She will keep her distance around anyone new. She hasn't warmed up to many and it's taken a long time for her to feel comfortable around them. She is easily startled by sudden sounds and movements. Evita doesn't tell you, as she seldom makes a sound, when she has to go outside, but will, most times, show you by walking or running and waiting at the door. You have to keep an eye on her. She has had an occasional accident. There are times she has to go out at any hour of the night. She will walk, or trot around in hopes someone will hear her or see that she wants to go outside before she heads for the door. Evita has ongoing medical problems that require frequent vet checks. She suffers from infections of her ears, eyes, and skin and joint pain. All must be treated once or twice a day with prescribed pills, ointments, mousse, and cleansers. Medicated baths are required every week or two. She also had a cancerous nodule removed and she is checked regularly for that but no other treatment needed has been required. Adoption Pending!

Lovena is a sweet pup that is around a year old. She came to us with many genetic problems including the worst elbow dysplasia we have seen. Her right foot ligaments are not there, so her foot looks like it is not attached. She was born very crooked all over. She walks and runs like a drunken sailor. But she doesn't know she is broken. She visited Loving Touch, and the vet said she is a orthopedic mess. She is being fitted for a brace so she can walk better. Thru it all she is an absolute love and had two temporary fosters fall in love with her. Lovena will soon have complicated orthro surgery for her crooked legs and once healed she will be staying with her foster mom who is also a vet. She is very loved. She hangs out with her foster mom at Loving Touch during the day when she is at work. We stay committed to her and love her and will keep looking for a special family for her.

Sully is a red & white boy who was picked up as a stray by a local animal control. Since his owners never came forward, he found himself in BHRG's care. After an MRI, it was determined he has Spinal Arachnoid Diverticulum which is a spinal disorder possibly caused by trauma or genetics. This disorder affects his movement as he is uncoordinated and is ataxic in all 4 legs. Surgery is not an option. He is not in pain from this condition, but it will not get better.
