Dear friends and supporters the Last month has been quite a ride. As you know we took in three new dogs. Kay and Tim took in Amyrah and I (Alex) took in Bhaaloo from the backyard breeder and dogfighter who lived next to us and thankfully got arrested, and little WiFi was rescued from a drug dealer Bhaaloo and Amyrah both have severe behaviour issues that we are working to resolve. Wifi is just a bundle of Joy!
Amyrah is beyond shy and terrified of men because her previous guardian beat his dogs. Kay has been working with her daily and it is slowly paying off. The little girl is coming out of her shell and now sometimes finds the courage to cuddle with her new dad Tim. We had a health scare with her thinking she might have distemper but it thankfully turned out to be a cold. Once again we faced a whopping vet bill but received help from donors (thank you so much) who cut it in half and our vet forfeited his own fee which made it doable considering it came out of Alex dwindling funds.

Our girl is now on antibiotics for her repertory infection, ointment for a rash on her flankand Benadryl for her allergies. She tested negative for heartworm which made us very happy; and we now have her on heartworm preventative to ensure it stays that way. We have a heartworm epidemic here in high point and we are not willing to take any risks. She is going to be spayed next week. Once again we would like to say thank you to all that have helped and supported us with this little lass 😀
Bhaaloo is friendly and outgoing but he is beyond hyperactive and very mouthy. His previous guardian was grooming him to fight so biting was encouraged. He needs a lot of attention and exercise because his enthusiasm has turned into aggression twice and we need to nip this behaviour in the bud. Our Zoe is a great help with that because they have become a natural match as you have seen in our videos.
The two love each other and Zoe who is loved by everyone who meets her (both animal and human) has the tendency to bring Bhaaloo’s best nature out of him.

Still Bhaaloo needs more attention than I can do alone so Tim has been running him which seems to work really well. Eventually we want to get him on the treadmill because this boy make the energiser bunny look like a 80 year old couch potato 😛 Bhaaloo will need to go to the vet next month to be tested for heartworms if you want to help with his next vet bill or donate to our general veterinary fund here is the link >
Every penny is appreciated My (Alex) funds run out this month and I will not have anything until I find employment. With Kay’s health issues Tim is currently the only one working so we need all the help we can get.
So now to little Wifi 😀
He is doing great growing like a weed. His injuries are fully healed and he is all round doing amazing. He got his second set of shots yesterday, and his first heartworm prevention pill.
Wifi is now 12 weeks old and 15 pounds heavy 🙂 He is such a blessing to have, very smart, calm in nature and very attentive. We think he might be a perfect candidate for a therapy dog if his temperament and demeanour remain the same. With my (Alex) MS he could eventually very well turn the tables and become the caregiver, if my condition worsens. We are also thinking of doing a sick child and elderly visitation program with him once he is grown and if he graduates from training 🙂 Since parvo is so prevalent in High point and the strains here so viciously deadly poor Wifi has not been out to play yet. Once he completes his last set of shots around January 1st we can wait to introduce him to the back yard. We think that Zoe and Moo will be the first to be allowed to play with him outside. Moo being his doggy foster mother will watch over him and Zoe is always up to playing when others are no fun 🙂
You guys might remember Siegfried and Roy. Roy was adopted into my (Alex) daughters house hold and is doing really well. Siggy had no such luck. He is a wonderful dog with People and submissive female dogs, but he fights everyone else. This is why we were unable to integrate hum in any of our three packs. We thought we had found a furever home with one of our friends and supporters T-ray from Atlanta. But unforeseen issues made it impossible for her to take him and the poor pooch has nowhere to go 😦 He deserves so much better than living isolated and alone so we are looking for a furever home for him or foster. He is a wonderful dog and as I said earlier he loves people but has issues with other dogs and cats. So it would be best that he find a home where he is the only pet. He is approximately 1.5 years old Neutered and up-to-date on his rabies. He needs a person who can devote a lot of time and energy to him, he is active and playful. If you are interested or can help please let us know.
So now to our finances this month my (Alex) funds will have run out everything i saved is going to be gone. I desperately need a job if anyone reading this has a job in High point NC or around it please let me know. I have a bachelor’s degree in Journalism, and associates in Psychology, worked 20 years in the music industry, 3 in the banking sector for American Express. At this point I will even take a job that pays half of my last income. I am a hard worker but am limited to a job sitting down due to my MS. Otherwise I do not have any restrictions.
I am also a visual artist and would take commissions, these day I work mostly digital but I do occasionally still use the physical medium.here three pieces of my work >
