At 26.5 pounds this big guy still has a lot of puppy in him, we‘d estimate his age as about 1 ½ to 2 years and those longish legs carry him from one end of his big back yard to the other at breakneck speed. Major is an active dog.  His foster parents have a big back yard in which he runs around in all day barking at cows, birds, cats, whatever.  At night he comes into the house has a quick nosh a sip of water jumps up on the bed, greats everyone and then crashes for the ni...read more about Major
Please meet “Mary."  Mary lost her person and ended up in an animal shelter in bad shape. But CTDR came to her Rescue-“BIG TIME."  Mary is a lively senior, black and tan, little girl. She is 10 to 13 years young. (No one knows for sure) She has cataracts in both eyes, but that does not slow her down much. Mary sees both light and movement and navigates very well, but she does have a wonderful habit of announcing her coming and passage with her distinctive bark, when she det...read more about Mary

Almost one year to the day, Skippy2 had to have another back surgery costing $2800.  He tolerated this surgery as well as can be expected also, and will hopefully make a full recovery.  If you can help us, please click HERE. Doris was rescued by CTDR in terrible condition.  She is heartworm positive, has a heart murmur, has mammary tumors all over, is not spayed and her lower jaw is broken all the way across.  We cannot imagine the pain she must be in with such a severly broken jaw.  But through it all, Doris is calm and accepting and understands she is now going to get the help she needs. CTDR could really use any help you can give to get tiny, sweet Doris in good health again.  If you would like to contribute to help Doris, please click HERE. Marley is making incredible progress after her laser treatments and water therapy. She also has the chance to do an intensive week of acupuncture and re-learning to walk again therapy to give her the best possible of chance of walking again. She is already trying to stand and taken 3 tentative steps, so CTDR feels we have to give her this chance to re-learn to walk. This comes at a cost of course, so if you are able to give a lot or a little, CTDR appreciates every single dollar. Thank you.  To contribute to help Marley, please click HERE.
