Rescue Dogs & Info
Below is a bittersweet story we would like to share from Henry's family and thank them for allowing Henry to know
love and kindness during his final days..........
"I have sad news. Henry suddenly died last night. He was not himself yesterday afternoon. He had no interest in a hotdog treat.
You needed to know because we had a contract and I know you are concerned about your rescue responsibilities. If you have
questions please ask.
My wife and I enjoyed Henry. Normally he would almost knock me down for a hotdog and would stick his head in the refrigerator
when opened. Friday afternoon Henry would walk a little slower, but, still wanted to greet me. My son said he looked fine and
was still alive when he came home from work at 3 AM this morning. I think he must have had a heart attack or something similar
that would kill him so fast. I think he died in his sleep.
Henry was a great dog. Henry was affectionate and loved to snuggle with me on the couch so he could be held. When my son
would sleep on the couch Henry would force his way up and push my son off while snuggling or retaking the couch.
Since I last e-mailed you the ear infections were gone. His ears quit stinking. Henry was getting perky. His walk became a little
more lively and showed an affectionate personality.
On weekends he would come into my room to get me up. If I was on my back and I scratched his head he would put his head
over my arm and move forward to pull me out of bed. The description may not be clear, but. it was obvious he wanted me out of
It was just as you said. Henry began to feel more at home. He would growl and make noises when he wanted attention. Henry
even began to go to the door with me when guest would arrive. Eventually he even learned to walk better on a leash without
dragging me along. We could walk with a loose leash side by side. Medications for his joints seemed to be working because he
would even occasionally trot a little.
It seemed the better he felt the more he would drool. Henry loved my yard and enjoyed rolling on his back and sunning himself
in the morning. He spent much of his time on my cool tile floor during the warm part of the day. I was hopeful he would last a few
more years. I believe Henry was older than we thought. He was a little grey around the muzzle.
I think the next time I get a dog It will be a mastiff puppy or young dog. I like the breed. Large dogs have the most gentle
personalities for their owners. I am glad I was able to make Henry's last days pleasant. Even the hygromas shrunk a little as he
had a comfortable place to lay down.
Whoever had him before neglected him. He was in pain from infections. His hygromas were large and his joints really bothered
him sometimes. I enjoyed having Henry in my home."

We are looking for someone who is able to foster
this sweet girl from the Fresno area. She is 93lbs,
owner surrender, after they didn't think it was worth
investing money on her ACL repair. Thankfully the
veterinarians did the surgery, but now they need to
find her a home. She's not spayed yet, but we
could work it out with the hospital to get it done.
She needs 6weeks of limited motility and play
("quiet time") and she shows signs of being a cat
chaser! So no cats!
Please let us know if you can help and thank you.
