Treasure Thursday

Happy Thursday Afternoon Everyone!

Happy National Dog Week, celebrating their 84th anniversary!!!

Boy, oh boy, it has been such a long week, already. Two nights ago my brothers were running all over the house in the middle of the night having a bought of the I, of course, had to get up and bark at them to be quiet! Then I had to wake up at 5:30 am yesterday (I didn't even realize that time existed) because Domeek had a work thing up in San Francisco and she wanted to miss commute traffic. Then I stayed at the doggie park waaaaay too long last night because so many of my friends were there! Phew!

I tell you...the life of a puppy! I need a vacation! ;-)

But the puppy park was seriously awesome last night! I hung out with my best friend Rizzo (the terrier/chihuahua), then I met an adorable little terrier called Dottie who had a fierce, blond mohawk and liked to chase, then there were all the regulars (french bulldogs, standard poodles, labs, retrievers...), then my friend from puppy school, Summit (the mini Aussie) came to the park just as we were about to leave, which meant that we stayed another half an hour playing with her! Like I said before, it was exhausting but so much fun!

I also met two new pups last night an Airedale and a giant Schnauzer (hehe, I thought he was the biggest Scottie that I ever did see), which inspired me to feature large breed rescues (an often overlooked set of pups in animal care facilities) in today's Treasure Thursday!

But first, updates from last week's Treasure Thursday!

My first featured pup's name is King,  who is a beautiful golden retriever mix, he is being adopted out through Dogs XL Rescue in Baltimore, Maryland. Dogs XL Rescue tries to find homes for pups who are over 50 pounds!

My second featured pup's name is Bear, he is an apricot brindle Neapolitan Mastiff, who is being adopted through the West Coast Mastiff and Large Breed Rescue in Murrieta, California. Their mission is to provide shelter, food, supplies, services and medical care for homeless large breed Dogs, specifically; Mastiffs, Great Danes, and Saint Bernards.

My final featured pup's name is Rocky, a beautiful and stylish Cane Corso, who is being adopted through (the coolest rescue group's name) Jurassic Bark Rescue in Missouri City, Texas! They concentrate on large and giant breed dogs primarily because they don't last long in a shelter. There is simply no room. Larger dogs require more resources and have their own special veterinary challenges.

To learn more about the awesome Rocky, please visit his personal adoption page! If you would like to see their other large breed (and one small pup) rescues, please visit their available adoptions page! They have some wonderful happy tails written there as well!
