TBAR Happenings & Recent Adoptions


We are HAPPY to list the following adoptions which have occurred during the last few weeks!
FREDDY, a golden retriever mix puppy went to his new home. Dog 1 He will be a companion to Stu and another lab mix dog.
Lucky Freddy will be an inside dog and getting all the attention he needs and deserves! When we called for an update on Freddy, he was sitting on the couch next to Stu and is very much loved!
Dirk, was driven to his new home on Sunday Dog 9 to be sure it would work out and everything seems great! He got along with their other dogs and seemed happy to be there. When we left, Dirk was safely inside the fenced area and as he gets used to his new home will be able to venture out and run and play in their large yard. When we called to see how he was adjusting we found him to be out in the yard and getting along well with the other dog and not bothering the chickens.
Husky, not only has a new home but a new name. He is now called Jake, and is loved by his new mom! Dog 21
Jackson, has found his new home and we are delighted to know he is well loved and getting all the attention he deserves! Dog 7
Clyde, went into his new home on Friday! Dog 14 Della, his foster mother, drove him to his new home in Brenham. A nice couple saw Clyde in the paper and decided to give him a try! Hooray for Clyde!

ADOPTED - Thank You!Location: Washington, TX

Dolly's Before pictures:

January 2008 - Registered a 1 on the Henneke Body Scoring Scale (as low as it goes)
Dolly was donated to TBAR significantly underweight. She measures a '1' on the Henneke Scale used to rate body condition. The scale goes from 1 to 9. She is the most skinny of the three, although this picture doesn't show just how emaciated she is. Even though she is just skin and bones, she is still sweet and loving. Dolly really needs her teeth floated (filed) to help her eat better, but she is so skinny, she can't handle the sedation required. Captain, Dolly and Blanca were all rideable, kid-broke, gentle horses before being neglected. Although at 30 years old, Dolly deserves retirement.

April 2008 - Gaining weight but still a long way to go

Update: April 14, 2008: Dolly has put on a lot of weight and her winter coat is shedding out in chunks! She finally put on enough weight to be able to handle the sedation to get her teeth floated. You can see how skinny she still is in her new photo; and that's after 2.5 months of proper food. Thanks to your support, Dolly and her companions are getting the care and feed they need to get back to health! She still has a ways to go, but she's on her way!
