Bella has a heart of gold to match her golden eyes. She quickly fell into our routine, gathered up Tansy's balls and frisbee and squeaky toys, and warmed up to our horses. In fact, she tries to get the horses to throw the ball for her as she leaves them by their feet. She soon inched her way into bed with us, sharing it with our elder Shih Tzu. She likes to lay between us on the bed when we watch tv placing a paw on each of our legs, claiming me mostly for herself. After my broken-nose surgery, she laid by my side for 10 days trying to lick my wounds comforting me. She loves car rides and is intrigued with the car wash. After I fully recover from my horse accident 10 mos ago, I hope to have her running by my side while riding. Oh, and she loves to talk up a storm and give us her sweet, gorgeous bedroom eyes when she knows she's been naughty, like stealing food off the counter when we're not looking or opening up doors.
Thelma has gone off to live with other Border Collies and she'll get to learn to herd sheep. Happy life sweet girl.
We've had Kiké, (pronounced ,Key-Kay.) aka King, then Chip for just over 6 weeks, and he has fit in so wonderfully with our family. He was a bit nervous when he came to us, but he has quickly become part of the family. We have three rabbits, and he is very gentle with them. At first he didn't know what to make of them, but he is careful and lets them come up to him, as he is also very curious. He runs with Frank every single afternoon, and has made it over 3 miles without stopping! He has found his forever home, and we are all so grateful!
After a slight nudge from an observant stranger...It's official, Chevy IS a permanent member of this "former" foster family even as we pack to head to a new home. Which means, this little cowboy, along with his AZBCR alumni pals Ray and Bear, will have the run of a cool little "ranchette" in Ohio where there's meadows and woods with an adjacent creek... just as soon as we travel cross country to get there. In true herder fashion, maybe we'll even find a few other critters to round up along the way.
Cayde arrived into foster care with a very active seizure disorder and other medical issues that required treatments, a calmer household and ongoing support. His foster family (humans and AZBCR alumni, Moe) started to fall for this fun loving, goofy boy. After getting him through many vet visits and one emergency care treatment for a bad seizure, it was decided that we were a great match for Cayde. Cayde was a Foster fail on October 2, 2022 and has been improving every day. Cayde will be helping his brother, Moe, support future AZBCR fosters in the upcoming years and he is excited about his new role as a "foster big brother".
Sweet Tio (now Sunka) went to his furever home today. A wonderful dog dad Thom, who had previously adopted way back in 2009. We are so excited for his next chapter!
Ray was originally adopted from AZBCR eleven years ago and returned to the rescue when his family had to move without him. At 13+ years old he is truly a wise and gentle soul who wasn’t with us for even a week as a foster when it was decided that he is part of our family and staying for good. He is our second foster fail/win in our almost 4 years with AZBCR after almost 30 foster pups coming through the door. Ray, Rayman, Ray Ray, Raymundo is living the very best retirement life, losing some excess weight and getting around pretty well these days. He enjoys daily walks, rides and rounding up members of his new pack in the backyard while sometimes playing tug and chasing squeaky toy tosses at his leisure. We sure love him as if he’s always been here…always will.
This is Sabrina (formerly Bria). She’s the last of the Truth or Consequences 19. She came here last weekend with a volunteer who drove all the way from Anthem to Hereford to bring her to me. Bria had been in board and train for nearly two months. Thanks to her working her magic, Sabrina has moved past her issues and is ready to start her new life. She’s been reunited here with her half brother/cousin Banjo, and they are having so much fun! I adopted Banjo because I’d always wanted a puppy. Now I have three, all 6 months old! My life is crazy right now, but the best kind of crazy. They are an absolute joy! Welcome Sabrina! You are officially part of the family!
And just like that....he's off to his new home! Kirby was adopted yesterday! His new mom is a retired lady who's already in love with him, even though it will take him some time to warm up to her. He'll have all the time in the world to get comfortable with her and learn the ropes of being a loved doggie. Happy life sweet boy!
K.C. has been adopted! He's got a great new mom that will take him on lots of walks. He'll get to go to the beach and the temperatures will be much cooler. Happy life to this sweet boy.
