Coco the Bichon
Coco’s Owner had to give her up as she was no longer able to give her the care she needed. Coco was suffering greatly and in pain with dental disease, bladder stones and tumors on the back of her legs and skin allergies. Coco has gone through bladder surgery and had her tumors removed. Now after surgery we are gaining her trust.
You can imagine that she had to be in a lot of pain for a long time so she is hesitant to be picked up but once she trusts you she really enjoys lap time and brushing.
Meet Wrigley, another senior pup who, through no fault of his own, ended up in the shelter, where House with a Heart stepped in as a Forever Foster. He no longer has any teeth but still enjoy his treats. He is friendly and love to be around humans..
Rocky was brought into BARCS following an Animal Control violation. His condition was absolutely heartbreaking. This poor pup was very emaciated and presented with entropion in both eyes, a small mass on his right eye, severe dental tartar, a small cyst like structure on his left scrotal sac as well as a ruptured mass on his anus. We got his weight up to where he was able to handle all the surgeries needed to make him more comfortable.
He is a favorite amongst several volunteers who come spend quality time with him. He is a sweet boy and will live out his life in comfort and love now.
Marco was at the PG County shelter when we were told that they were full and were going to start euthanizing dogs to make room for more. He was marked as a fear biter. He bit a couple people at the shelter, and other than horrid dental disease, was in good health. So we transported him to us, gave him a dental and grooming, and kept him in a pen to evaluate his behavior.
Boy were they ever wrong! Marco is the sweetest, most loving dog! If someone is sitting down, you can guarantee that boy will be in their lap. He gets excited whenever he sees his favorite people. He is a very happy, silly pup.
Tator was rescued by PetConnect Rescue. They asked for our help to evaluate him as he was pooping and peeing in his crate. We are guessing that he spent his life in a crate and this was normal for him. So we kept a close eye on him, and taught him to poop outside. He is extremely shy and would run and hide when anyone walked in the door. Slowly but surely, he has started venturing out when people arrive. He has even started letting some people hold him and pet him. He has come a long way from the scared little man he was. He is such a cutie and we are thrilled to see him thrive with our pack.
