A poem from Max

11289568_1636725189881854_5793019203542923785_oHi my name is Max…I’m a year old male lab mastiff cross. I’m also a budding poet and I wrote this poem I would like to share….
I’m a lab mastiff male
who is always wagging my tail
It has been such a long wait
for my forever mate
My foster mum says I’m pretty cool
the bonus here is that I don’t drool
I hope my family will come someday
each night for this I pray
I hope it will be before I’m old and grey
If you want the best friend ever
then look to me you’ll regret it never
I have lots of love to share
and I love to be cuddled like a teddy bear

Jake has been adopted

Foster Homes Needed!

We need some foster homes asap, if you love dogs and want to be part of a life saving rescue, contact us now. We will provide the following: kennel, crate, bed, food, bowl, grooming gear, toys, chews and treats, flea treatments, collar and lead, shampoo, veterinary care including vaccinations and desexing, ongoing advice and support and what ever else may be needed. We need from you a safe and secure yard, time, and most of all LOVE! Contact us so we can tell you more, ask any of our foster homes. It really means the difference between life and death to the rescued dogs. Without foster homes we have no choice, no options  There is no back up, no kennels in our back yard, foster homes are life or death for these dogs.
