    Meet the New Rescue Dogs! All Nine of Them!

    Wow, busy day yesterday! I got nine new rescue dogs in at once, all from a puppy mill in Missouri.

    A Boston terrier named Abe, a dachshund named Joey, two chihuahuas named Pepper and Marmalade, and five Italian greyhounds named Zelda, Camy, Gucci, Crystal and Jewel.

    Poor things.

    So, anyone looking for a new doggie or two?

    Holy Cow, adding NINE all at once to your fur family!

    Blessings to all of them, and to you for fostering them. I pray they recover from their prior life and land in wonderful furever homes!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    Five IG's?! Wow. Just... wow.

    Twisterdog, how are they doing? Could you pet them for me, please?

    Also-- what happens now? Do you get help from rescue groups to place them in homes? Do you have enough food for everyone?
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    I would totally take an Italian Greyhound, but that's not exactly my choice.

    They are all gorgeous, and I just love the pics! Post more whenever you get the chance. Thanks so much for rescuing the babies. They're all beautiful.

    Well, they are doing ok, considering where they came from.

    None of them have the faintest idea about housetraining. The dachshund is blind in one eye, looks like an untreated injury at some point in the past. The smallest IG has a horrible limp from a broken leg that was probably left to heal on its own. She is also vastly underweight, you can see every bone in her body. The three old IG girls have no teeth, literally. They have tumors and arthritis, from sleeping on concrete for years. They are between 10 and 12 years old, and I'm sure they have had between 20 and 24 litters of puppies, each. They are pitiful.

    I pretty much AM the rescue group around here. I got these guys through my friend who rescues in Utah. But she has the other half of this group ... more IGs, bishons and min pins.

    Yeah, my hubby pretends to be macho, but he's a softie. He carries the little IG around all the time like a baby so she doesn't have to walk.
