Rhett was found!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you all know that the Dakota Dachshund Rescue puppymill dog, Rhett, was found in Sioux Falls a week ago.  Thanks for allowing me to post the Lost flyer even though many of you aren't from the SD area.  Everyone is so relieved Rhett was found and is now safe at his foster's home. 

Speaking of foster dogs: I currently foster Luke Skywalker for DDR and just found out someone has applied to adopt him!  I have had the honor of fostering Luke in my home for the past 6 months and am happy to say that the scared, skinny puppymill boy has blossomed into a happy, playful, loving dog!  I am very sad that he will be leaving me soon, but I'm excited for him to continue on his journey here on Earth in his forever home!  Plus, with Luke moving on, it will open up another foster home spot for another dog in need.

I blog on the website for Luke, so feel free to check him and other dachshunds in need of homes on the DDR website:

Thanks everyone!



PETA article mentioning working dogs.

This post was originally made by sophiahagia in theseeingeye, and I thought I'd copy it here since it applies.

In a post on the LA Times blog, the vice president of cruelty investigations at PETA was interviewed yesterday. The article mostly discusses PETA's work
to stop the broadcast of the Westminster dog show, but there are several concerning points that the VP makes about working dogs. You can read the article at the following link:
I'd encourage you to contact PETA with your thoughts on this matter, as pretty much everything this woman has to say about guide dogs isn't true. Her contact
info is:

Laura and Mollie's Intro post.

Hi, I'm Laura, and I just received my beautiful German Shepherd dog guide named Mollie from The Seeing Eye this past summer. She's 2.5 years old, and I've posted a picture of her behind the cut below for anyone who's interested. She's stubborn, strong-willed, smart, mischievous, and a great guide dg as far as I'm concerned. She's still got quite a bit of puppy in her despite her age, although for all I know it could be normal.

I joined this community because I'm interested in learning about other types of working dogs as well as learning any tips for caring for a working dog. I'm glad to be a part of this community!

I'm posted a fund raising auction on ebay for
Damon's Den Doberman Rescue.
It is for this.

I can customize it with your last name, house number, or anything else you would like it to say. The options are only imited by space. :) It will be either stained or not depending on purchaser preference, clear coated, and I can paint the border any color you like.

You can bid on it


Dog profile help.

Hello Everyone! It's been forever since I wrote on here. I have been back to writing and I started writing little breed profiles! Dogs are my passion and it's been fun getting back to this! I have no plans on publishing but thought instead it would be fun for family and friends. So what I was hoping for is... I am going to post up to 5 breeds of dogs that I am writing about, what I would like is pictures of that breed and maybe a little insight of the breed with your experiences, facts, fun things about them. I want to print pictures of your dogs for my profiles (not an online thing) it will be printed on paper, laminated and put into a binder for people to view. If you post a picture please give me permission to use them and your name, (last name is not needed) pets name, and a state, country would be nice. Nothing to personal! Remember this is just something fun for me to put together and show family and friends. Maybe it will help educate people too ( I would like a couple pictures of mix breeds too as I will add a sheet of pictures of mixes.) But mainly pics of purebreds. Thanks!I forgot to mention the breeds! haha oops!
Akita, Alaskan Malamute, Anatolian, Black Russian Terrier, Bernese Mountain dog.
I figured I would start with the working group.
