Intro from Michigan

Postby zephyr » Mon Mar 24, 2008 2:55 pm

Hello everyone....

My name is Stephanie, I'm 27 from Mid-Michigan. Myself and my fiance are currently owned by 10 dogs - 8 permanent residents and 2 fosters. I'm fostering for 2 great rescues, Mid-Michigan Boxer Rescue and Chicagoland Bully Rescue. I also co-run a reptile and exotic small animal rescue, which I've been involved with for 12 years.

So, on to what everyone probably wants to see, the doggie crew....

My oldest, Duncan - 14 years old, collie/english setter mix, 45#. Adopted as a puppy from an aquaintance with an accidental litter. Pretty happy and healthy for his age. :)
Image

Hannah - approx. 6 years old, weim mix, 50#. Adopted when she was 2 from the local animal control on Christmas Eve - was due to be put down on Christmas, and we just couldn't let that happen!
Image

Ralph - approx. 5 years old, border collie/ aussie shep mix, 55#. Adopted from rescue. Started losing his eyesight about 2 years ago, now almost completely blind.
Image

Hank - approx. 3 years old, pittie, 50#. Adopted from a crappy group that called themselves a rescue. Was originally a chain dog in Detroit, was lucky enough to be pulled out before Detroit AC got to him and relegated him to pit row. He's a total pain in the butt, but I love him to death :inlove:
Image

Rupert - approx. 4 years old, pit/dane/boxer mix, approx 80#. Shelter pull.
Image

Peggy - approx 3 years old, staffie, 45#. Shelter pull. Totally HBIC and she knows it :)
Image

Rusty - approx. 4 years old, pittie mix, 55#. Another shelter pull.
Image

Stuart - approx. 3 years old, bull terrier, 50#. Pulled out of a shelter just ahead of being sold to a class b dealer for research.
Image

And the 2 fosters....

Booker - 1.5 years, olde english bulldogge, 85#. Super sweet boy, but dumb as a box of rocks lol
Image

Benson - the newest addition to the household, just brought him home 2 days ago. approx. 6 years old, pittie, 60#. Was a shelter pull. Sweet, needy boy with some health problems. Vet's best guess is that he was at one point hit-by-car and suffered a broken pelvis that went untreated. Is underweight and wobbly in the hind end with hock and knee problems due to the hip/pelvic weakness. Will find out this week if surgical correction is an option. Also has some skin issues from being in the shelter so long.

Class B dealers are individuals that are licensed by the USDA to purchase cats and dogs from "random sources" - typically meaning pounds, animal controls, fleamarkets, or auctions - to be sold to animal research facilities for biomedical research and testing. As disgusting as the practice is, some shelters sell to these dealers instead of humanely euthanizing unadopted animals, and some will even sell as soon as an animals stray hold is up, not ever allowing them the opportunity for adoption.
