HAPPY HAPPY NEWS!!!

Sandy’s biopsy results have already come back. The specialist vet called this morning and said it is unusual to get them back so soon. She said she had good news and that in this instance she was so glad that she had been wrong. She was almost sure that the tumors were cancer. But they were not! big HAPPY DANCES !!  That is 2 big miracles in 2 weeks. Guardian’s leg tumor was benign as well. Thank you for being a HUGE part of their miracles. The vet bills are paid.  We feel so blessed!!  hugs-Elaine

Pupdate on Sandy

Sandy is home and resting. What a little trooper she is! Thank you all for your prayers and support. If you did not know she had just had surgery, it would be hard to tell by the way she is acting.We go back in 2 weeks for the re check and the vet should notify us in a week or so on the biopsy results. I am still praying that the tumor is not cancer and we won’t need chemo. I cannot thank you all enough for supporting us through this. We were able to pay the total of the bill  and did not have to borrow. We had our miracle! Thank you so much!

We have an URGENT need. Can you help Sandy?

Our sweet, sanctuaried Pom girl, Sandy is in need of our help!  I hope you all recall Sandy, one of the 3 we rescued right before Christmas(a yr and a half ago) out of a NC shelter that at the time was using a gas chamber to euthanize. She was dropped off at the shelter with little Sammy. They were brought in a box on a trailer load of firewood.  We guess she is about 12-13 years old. I noticed a lump beside her rectum a few weeks ago, so when we had her last dental, our vet took a sample of it. She then recommended we see a specialist as anal surgery of any kind is extremely sensitive. I just got back from the specialist and she suspects some type of cancer. She is having blood work done, an ultrasound to see if the tumors have spread, then removal of the tumors. If the tumors have spread to the Lymph nodes the vet will open the abdomen and remove those at the same time that Sandy is under anesthesia for the anal tumor removal. The cost of all this will wipe out all of the PomRescue.com bank account and put us in to borrowing on a credit line. The estimate they just gave me was 2000-2400. Then depending on what the tumors are, there may be chemo. As far back as I can remember, I don’t think we have ever faced such an immediate crisis. I hate to ask, but I ask not for myself but for ‘Miss Sandy’ as we call her. She has one of the sweetest dispositions of any dog I have ever met! In case you would like to verify this info, the vet info is Upstate Veterinary Specialists, 393 Woods Lake Road, Greenville, SC 293607  1-864-233-7650 and the veterinarian is Dr Margalit. The account is under ELaine Harris ‘Sandy’ PomRescue.com inc.

Please beware of water intoxication

Please beware of water intoxication this summer. I really had no idea that this was a problem. I have been told that it can even happen while a dog is playing in a sprinkler! http://thebark.com/content/danger-water-intoxication#.V1LYOXDAPCU.facebook

PomRescue.com rescued Guardian, a German Shepherd stray, at a county animal control shelter, on his last day.


PomRescue.com rescued Guardian, a German Shepherd stray, at a county animal control shelter, on his last day. Having just lost our guardian dog, Bear Harris, we rescued Guardian in honor of our Bear. Guardian was very, very thin and a bit nervous about being left alone. He quickly bonded to us. It took a few days of careful work, but Guardian has now included all the dogs and the chickens as ‘his pack’.

Please note that we can no longer take in owner surrenders.
We are sorry to say that we can no longer take in owner surrendered dogs. Due to some bad experiences and our lack of foster space, we must save our spaces for dogs in immediate danger of being put to death at shelters.

Our latest rescue. ‘Guardian’ as in angel. Just in case you are wondering why a Pom rescuer came home with a pony sized German Shepherd. Yes- I may have lost my mind(or what was left of it) but could you could have walked off and left him? Yeah. I didn’t think so…… ;0) This boy spoke to my heart. We had just lost our big dog, Bear, with no warning. So this rescue is dedicated in loving memory to ‘Bear Harris’. He is forever in our hearts. If you have never done a ‘freedom run’ and picked an animal up from a shelter, then you are missing one of life’s sweetest joys!

SAD news…..

I hate to post sad news, but anyone that had known us, knows our boy Tucker. He was our very first Pom ever. I knew nothing about Poms and even less about Pomeranian rescue before we got him! If I could do it wrong I did! We spoiled him rotten and loved him like a kid for 15 years.  He was funny, silly, contrary, a big ham when the camera came out, lovable and at times cantankerous. Over the last few years he developed congestive heart failure. It became more difficult to manage in the last six weeks and on April 20, 2016 at 6:30 AM, he passed away. He did it HIS WAY, just like he did everything.  He was on our bed, on his own terms and when he was good and ready. Our daughter, Jenny,  was in high school and and our son, Luke, was in junior high when we got Tucker. He lived in 3 houses with us, saw them grow up, go off to school and to the AirForce, and then saw them get married and have children of their own.We can hardly remember a time before Tucker.
Our oldest granddaughter said 2 days ago that Tucker was on his way to Heaven and she was right. God speed little Tucker Paw!

Two weeks after losing Tucker we lost our ‘Bear Harris’. It was a sudden death, with no warning. I am still trying to understand. We loved him dearly!

Sadie has been ADOPTED!

Sadie’s new Mom, Anna.
Sadly Anna’s Pom Taffy, passed away just a few weeks ago.This left a Pom sized hole in her heart. Seeing Sadie online, she knew that Sadie needed someone, and she needed Sadie. After checking out her application, doing the reference checks and then the home visit, we saw that they were a good match. I have to admit, I shed a few tears as I had become very attached to sweet Sadie, but I knew she deserved a quieter home with her very own person to love. This is what rescue is all about.
Pupdate: Sadie has been adopted  Hi- My name is Sadie. My person passed away and I was taken to a shelter to be put to sleep. I was so afraid. I knew if they put me to sleep I would never wake back up again. The folks at the shelter did not want that to happen so they contacted PomRescuecom to see if I could come stay with them. A nice lady picked me up and brought me to PomRescue.com. I have already had all my vaccines and blood work and I had a dental and lost 15 teeth they had been neglected for a long time. I also had a growth removed from under my tail on 3/16. It was benign- yeah!  Let me tell you about myself. I don’t bark much,(hardly ever) I can’t hear very much. I am learning to come to a loud clap though! I like to go outside with you and when I get to know you I will surprise you by running around in your yard. I get along fine with all the other Pommies here.  I love food and am not a picky eater. I don’t mind being bathed and brushed. Since I am a mature girl, I think I would do best in an all adult home. I am home! xoxo Sadie
Sadie is microchipped, vaccinated, dewormed, neutered, heart worm negative and started on heart worm prevention and flea prevention.
