I, too, Gina will also keep them in my prayers in the hopes that they will be adopted very soon and to a very loving, warm and kind home.

I am so glad you finally found help for those four sweet dogs through no fault of their own lost their owner (your dad). Animals are the most vulnerable victims of the whims of nature. I am half a world away from the St. Louis Senior Dog Project but will say a prayer for their goodness.

Just a quick thank you to all for support during a difficult time.
I was able to get assistance from the St. Louis Senior Dog Project stlseniordogproject.org/ who took the dogs last week. They are a wonderful organization - please show them some love and support if you can.

And thank you, once again, for all the leads and support!

Laura

Thank you for the kind words. Animals mean everything to me. I'll have my own animal business someday. Thank you. But want to make sure these babies have a new forever home!

I've got a couple more rescues to get in contact with for you and they have given me more connections that I need to follow up on. I have had at least three co-horts of mine contact me with more information and I have given your info out to at least 3 other people besides that. Has anyone connected with you yet on this????

Thanks! I hadn't actually gone back to look at that, nice to see they are there - but they have been for 3 weeks with no nibbles. Hopefully I will hear something from someone soon. Meanwhile, I keep emailing and calling anyone I get referred to.

Laura,

I just looked on Cattledog.com and your dogs are all listed on their rescue page. I don't know how that all works, but there might be someone look on their who can help. Looking closer it looks like people looking for rescue dogs go to the site and then contact the contact person. I've never used their rescue site. I hope they can find a new forever home soon.

I don't know where all the ACD rescues are, but have tried writing a friend near KC to see if they know who was in St. Louis. It was a few years back, but maybe she still works there. I would write to the ACD-L, but Century Link got me kicked off by bouncing all the emails I was getting sent and the list owner will not answer me on getting back on the list. Most all of the people I know are west.

Understood. It is an undertaking in any case. I know they are wonderful, but I have four of my own. My four are a well balanced pack, and we have attempted other fosters in the past, which tends to throw the balance. But absorbing another pack entirely - seems very daunting, and in my husband's eyes very undoable... to say nothing of the city (if I were to ask them). Hard to make new members fit well, in any case. And if you will be traveling, then much the worse.

But thank you for at least being interested. You are the first, in the entire time I have been searching - back since April/May.

Sigh...

Laura

Any of them would be fine if they are socialized and being 4 of them I think they would be. I hate to be a wet blanket but I asked the hubby and he said it would not be a good idea at this time as we are going to Mexico in the fall and would not be able to take a new dog. That makes me sad. Our puppy is 8 months old and dying all the time for companionship. He is a gorgeous mix of unknown origin but is medium sized, has a raccoon mask face and a golden body. He might be shepherd, pitbull, etc. and is a very velcroed fellow who is discovering that lake water is good stuff. We found him in the desert in Mexico half dead with mange, fleas, worms and dehydration at 2 months old. I found him immensely ugly but hubby fell in love with him and the rest is history. Please let us all know how you make out with the lovely 4.

Bless your heart!
Let me look into the logistics, and I will keep you posted.
Did you have any preference, and what kind of puppy do you have?

I would love to take one of those dogs. Our old dog died about 6 wks ago and we only have an eight month old puppy left. But the catch is that we live in northern Canada. If you get desperate we can take one, just let me know via this format and I would send you details. The closest plane ride would be to Prince George, BC, Canada. We would drive the 350 miles to get him or her off the plane.

Thanks, ladies!
I have contacted several ACD groups by email - none of whom have responded.
I just keep widening my search. They are all happy, healthy dogs. I desperately want to keep them that way.

Laura,
here is my suggestion:
They all look like Heeler (also called Australian Cattle Dog) or Heeler crosses. Your best chance of finding a home maybe be an Australian Cattle Dog rescue or at least a herding dog rescue. You can search for one by either contacting the National breed club and searching for rescue groups through them or by looking on petfinder.com for groups that specialize in this breed (you'll find them if you look for listings of this breed). Some of them are willing to help people even long-distance, in particular when there are health reasons of the owner.
Best wishes,
Birgit

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.

Thanks Laura. First let me say how sorry I am about your father. Although I am not in a position to adopt, I will try and figure out how to repost on my FB page. I volunteer with GRRAND (Golden Retriever Rescue and Adoption of Needy Dogs) in KY. Rescue groups are always happy to cross post. I will hope for the very best outcome on this. Please post again if you have additional information so we will know that the dogs are safe and happy.

Thanks, Deedie emoticon

Hello, all!
Please forgive me for jumping in here with a desperate plea.
I am in need of loving placements for 4 senior dogs - my father's, as he is terminally ill and will not be returning home to them. They are currently located in St. Louis, MO (I am in Ohio) and we have exhausted outlets there, so I am expanding my search. I am willing to transport within reason anywhere along the I-70 corridor between STL and Columbus, OH.

You can see pictures and find out more about them here:

Please forward this on to anyone you know who may be able to assist me.
Thank you!

Laura
