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.

Any amount is appreciated no matter how small.

Thank you for your interest and continued support –

Please help us protect the Mutanthouse Pooches from being poisoned!

Dear friends and supporters,
Here is a little update on what is happening right now at Mutanthouse.

We are currently having serious problems with some of our neighbours. These neighbours are targeting our dogs and we believe that Jubilee‘s illness, Luna’s death this year and Inara’s in 2009 are closely connected to their dealings. Our property is large and it is not always easy to detect possible poisoned or rotten food they throw over the fence before our pooches get to it. We desperately need to protect our animals and need to repair the fences and create a safe playground these people cannot breach. For this we want to seal off the middle part of the property with an 11 foot privacy fence, put in artificial turf so we can monitor and detect anything out of the ordinary. Right now our funds are totally maxed out, I (Alex) am funding the bulk of the project and my funds are going to run out in January.
So we would be happy for any help we can receive, if you have unwanted chain link and wooden privacy fences (6 feet or 11 feet high ) , we would be happy recipients , if you are able to donate funds to the cause there is a link here >

On a more positive note:

Little Wifi is doing really well he is going to the doctor on Friday to get his stitches removed and will get his next set of shots on the 30th. He is growing everyday and outgrowing his cloths seemingly every time we look at him 😉 He is now able to regulate his own body temp. But we are still keeping him extra warm 🙂

Little momma made the transition into the inside and is doing very well she also finally has her new name > Amyrah 😀 we will be barging her to the vet around the 30th for a general check-up , heartworm test ect; once we have the funds together.

Bhaaloo who as you see in all the videos is doing phenomenal, he and Zoe are inseparable and he is slowly learning to curb his energy somewhat. He will be going to the vet with Amyrah around the 30th for a check-up where he will be receiving his booster shots and will be checked for heart worms.

Our Moo who is heartworm positive 😦 will hopefully receive her treatment in January as soon as we can come up with the funds right now she is on slow treatment to at least minimise the damage.

Cassiopeia is now a full member of the Mew crew and has been fully accepted and has integrated well 😀 For a while she was very grumpy beating up on the boys who wanted to cuddle her, but she now gets along with everyone which warms our hearts 🙂

In the next weeks our vet costs are going to rise again and we would be very thankful for any help any of you could give us. If you would like to donate to our veterinary fund to help us keep all our elderly and special needs dog vetted and up to date you can find it here >

WiFi the puppy update <3

First of all we would like to say thank you to all that have been helping with our Wifi. He is recovering extremely well and your donations are helping us immensely. If he keeps recovering this well he will need only a few more vet visits and then he can move into normal puppyhood: D yay!
Wifi is on few medications but only until the beginning of next week then he will be done with them. next week he will also be getting rid of his stitches which means YAY! He is however on costly speciality food because he needs to recover from his emaciation which he is he gained # pounds the last week YAY!
If you would like yo contribute to his recover our chip in for him can be found here >

State Of The Nation 1

Meet Little Momma Mutanthouse’s New Resident

This is Little Momma – one of the dogs Mario the back yard breeder who also fought his dogs left behind. She was tied to a tree without shelter on a cattle chain which she could hardly pull behind her. We at Mutanthouse have decided to adopt her because she is so shy and feral she would have no chance in the shelter system even if she was not a Pittbull. This is probably the first time in her life that she has ever walked unchained. Eventually she will be Tim’s baby who instantly fell in love with her when she learns not to be afraid of men. Mario beat her so severely that she is terrified of male humans.We might eventually rename her we will keep you posted.

Poor girl is so scared of everything she was abused and is just slowly regaining trust 😦

She currently lives in the kennel we had Siegfried in until she is less feral

She is discovering how to play she wont do it in front of us quite yet but when we watch her from the windows we have seen her play with her new toys it warms our hearts

Here Kay is working with Little Momma who has come to slowly trust her.

it is work in Progress, but we know that eventually she will come out of her shell and be the amazing dog we know she is. Little momma we love you ❤

Namaste
Alex
