Tally has been in hospice care since February 2008. As a 2 year old red dobie girl, Tally was one of ten dogs which were seized by authorities from a backyard breeder in West Virginia for neglect and cruelty. The wife, having grown tired of all the dogs moved into an apartment; the husband, divided his time between the two homes. This left the dogs alone and unattended for long periods of time. The conditions for the dogs were harsh. Some were crated, some were chained and others roamed free in the backyard. The dogs lived outdoors in feces and filth without adequate food and water. None of them had ever been socialized. After the neighbor's continuous complaints about the dogs fighting and several dogs being picked up more than once for having escaped the yard, authorities finally removed the dogs in September 2007. The dogs were so fearful of people, they had to be captured. Read More....

SHADOW was 3 ½ years old when she came to DAR&E in August 2010 with another Dobie from a dire situation. They were living in a hot car for weeks during the summer after their owner was told he was not allowed to have them where he lived. He only had them for about a year, purchasing them from someone else who was selling them. Once they came into our vet, we had them vetted, spayed and into a foster home in short order. Things were finally looking up for her until …….
The first night Shadow was in her new foster home, the foster mom just happen to notice that there was a lot of blood in her urine and rushed her to the Emergency Vet. After running some tests, we found out she was a very sick little girl. Her red blood cell count was low, her white count was high and it wasn’t blood in her urine. It was hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the protein molecule in red blood cells that help carry oxygen.
