From ABR - Doyle was found in a storm dirty and wet on Long Island NY. We took him from the shelter knowing he was positive for heartworm. He is around 3 years old and is seriously like having a giant stuffed animal. Smushy, friendly, calm and loving he just received his first shot for his heartworm treatment (10-4-16). There was vetting done prior to the treatment but the treatment alone is $650 because he weighs 105 pounds.

August 2017 - Teddy
From RCBR - Please welcome our new guy, whom we pulled from a shelter. He was found as a stray but was likely dumped. As you can see, he has some serious skin issues that have been bad for a long time. He shows indications of possible abuse, but he is very sweet and wants to be around people. He is a fast learner. Stairs were tricky at first, but now he's taking them like a pro. We are letting him adjust to things at his pace, though.
From RCBR - He is doing great. He was adopted by an older gentleman in Mechanicsville (close to Richmond) who also has a basset hound named Fred. He and his wife are separated-but still very amicable-and she hangs out with Teddy all the time, too. They go to a local winery with Teddy and Fred and the dog park and other adventures.
November 2017 - Julee
“From B2tR - Julee was attacked by an unknown dog on Sunday, Nov 5 and was found outside under her previous owner’s porch. Julee is an outdoor only dog. She was brought to the clinic with severe bite wounds to the left front leg, and some to the right side of her face and right front leg. Her wounds were cleaned and treated on Sunday night, but infection had likely already set in. Julee has significant necrosis of the skin under the left arm and infection below the skin around the entire arm. The area will require surgical debridement and bandaging with frequent changes for a few days to remove the infection. · She will likely be in the hospital for a week, and then coming back frequently for rechecks and bandage changes as she heals. I am hopeful that we will be able to tackle the infection without losing the leg, but it is still amputation is still a possibility.” - B2t
