State Of The Nation/Mutanthouse Update 2

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)

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.

(Amyrah , with Kay and doctor Sink )

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)

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.

(Zoe and Bhaaloo -one day my muddy prince will come 😛 Bhaaloo rolled in some unmentionable stuff but Zoe loves his new cologne 😛 )

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.

(Zoe and Bhaaloo)

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.

(Wifi)

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.

Amyrah needs your help

As many of you know Kay and Alex saved two dogs from the dog fighting scum who lived next door and then got arrested. Alex took in Bhaaloo and Kay took in little momma, who we renamed Amyrah.

Both Pooches where obviously abused. Bhaaloo seemed to have recovered better from it then poor Amyrah she was so timid, terrified of men and scared of her own Shadow.

( poor Little Sad Amyrah before we rescued her 😦 )

As you guys might remember the fool who owned her prior had all his dogs chained to trees without shelter and often without food or water. At some point he put out one oil barrel for all four dogs that was never used by any of them because it had the tendency to roll down the hill and he never bothered to retrieve it.
(the Barrel 😡 )

Kay started feeding the pooches because we could not look at them every day and watch them suffer.Then I (Alex)organized dog houses for them as part of our give a pooch house program.

Two months went by where we had to watch the pooches miserable little lives, Amyrah’s chain was far too big for her and she would drag it behind her like the ball and chain of death. She was terrified of it so she would move slowly because she hated the sound it made.
Then Mario was arrested and we deliberated long what could be done …As you know Bhaaloo went to live with Me (Alex) and Amyrah first moved into one of our outside pens.

Slowly she warmed up to Kay, but it was a very painful process. Poor Amyrah was terrified and any wrong move could send her to crawl into her doghouse 😦

A few days before Halloween We decided to bring her into the house because there was talk of idiots targeting Pitbulls on Halloween and we did not want to take a chance that the little girl could get hurt.
Amyrah was so grateful and happy and she got on so well with Kay and Tim’s cats that they decided to keep her inside permanently. She has not been integrated into their pack yet but we are working on it 🙂

(taking Walks is fun- Amyrah discovers the world beyond the chain )

(cuddling with Momma on the sofa )

(happy baby learns to Smile )

At this point she is trusting and stable enough that we can finally take her to our vet. The last 2 months however have depleted our veterinary budget and we are hoping that maybe some of you can help us with her upcoming vet bill she will need to get a full physical including heartworm test and her shots.
We are thinking everything will run around $150-200. If you could contribute toward this we would be more than thankful as you know we are not a non profit yet and 99% is coming out of our own pockets.
Her chip in is here >

Any amount is appreciated no matter how small.

Thank you for your interest and continued support –

Alex and Amyrah

Siggy wants his mommy or Help Bring Siegfried Home

Dear friends and supporters as you might know Siegfried one of our rescue pups we saved from the streets of High Point does not get along with our other dogs. Otherwise he is a big loving goof who wants nothing more than to lick and love on you and is a great companion period. We at Mutanthouse have found the perfect home for our boy, with Alex’ friend T-ray -who can’t wait to be with her new family member.

This is our dilemma the trip to Atlanta from High Point (round-trip) will cost between $480 and $500. While we can probably come up with a third between Tim and Alex once money comes in it will not be until the end of October. Currently Siegfried is living in Kay’s car because, like his human counterpart, he is a master escape artist. He has eaten though crates, the outside kennel we built and basically lives confined to the car and the 4 time a day play time we can give him. This is not a life for a dog!

(Siegfried on the day of his neutering. Not a happy pup 😦 – Tim is holding him and in the back you can see the car he has been living in – we need to get him out and with his mommy – please help http://mutanthouseproject.chipin.com/help-bring-siggy-home < so we can bring him ourselves we would be so very thankful. Please help us get Siegfried to the loving home he deserves.

Thank you
Alex

Help save Face !

This is Face

and this is his stupid Guardian Mario!

I used to like Mario until I saw how he treats his dogs. Face lives in a back yard shared with Morgaine. This Back yard has no fence so Face runs free; face also has no shelter and lives totally unprotected by the elements. Sometimes he is fed sometimes not his existence is miserable …

Face has a sister who also belongs to Mario she lives in a small oil barrel and is tied to a tree on a short chain. Of late Face has become aggressive, Kay who is boarding with Morgaine and will be living in one of the apartments ,until her and Tim’s pod is built on the property ,brought Ren out last night and Face attacked her without warning, she is ok but has cuts on her face and head 😦 Today face lunged at me from the bushes until he realised who I was. This cannot keep going on!

We have talked to Mario and he is always apologetic and polite but does absolutely nothing, we are sick of it! something bad is going to happen and someone is going to get hurt , we have kids running around on the property … If we call Animal control these Dogs will be taken and killed and we do not want this either. Right now Mutanthouse is full up with furries and at our absolute maximum capacity until things get better we cannot take Face or his sister who is unsprayed and going into heat (which means puppies are inevitable if we do not do something :P).

This is what we need we need two solid doghouses and fencing so we can build two kennels for face and his sister. We will need 2 tarps to create a roofed area as well. We also would like to start feeding the two because they are not being fed regularly but are struggling with food supply our selves. We want to see if we can get the Mobile vet to come out and give them their shots too because we know Mario has not vetted them 😦 but we do not have the funds to do so and might have to settle for making them comfortable and fed . Regardless of our own struggles we cannot stand blindly and just watch but we also cannot go over our capacity and compromise the life quality of our residents. We need your help! Mario will probably not agree to have Face’s sister spayed, we believe he might be breeding her and selling the pups. So we will have to grit our teeth and do what we can do.

If you are willing to help and can donate the needed items (we really would prefer this!) or would like to make a cash donations > the Face Fund http://mutanthouseproject.chipin.com/the-face-fund-help-get-doghouse-kennel-and-food-for-neglected-dog please do we need all the help we can get High point is flooded with unwanted, neglected and brutalised Furries , the good rescues (like Rufflove rescue > LIKE THEIR PAGE ! http://www.facebook.com/ruffloverescue & Great Dane Friends of Ruff Love LIKE THEIR PAGE ! http://www.facebook.com/GDFRL ) are full up and the shelters around here are executing fur kids on intake! Please help save or at least make life better for the suffering, pass on rescue and foster requests , donate to Rescues not kill shelters and ABOVE ALL SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR FURRIES !
