They say.....

That a way to honor
a dog that you have loved, and lost.....
Is to save another.
 
With the help of Big Dog Ranch Rescue
we have opened our hearts and homes
to a very special guy
Meet Finnegan
Finn seems to be his house name
He was brought into this world under
very dire and deplorable circumstances. He was malnourished and neglected....
as were the 66 other great danes that were rescued from a horrendous back yard breeding situation.
It has been closed down.
 Homes are needed for the remaining dogs.
And even though he probably had little or no human contact in his 3-4 years
He has a heart and soul as big as the moon.
He is a love.
Who hugged and smiled at us the moment we met.
 
He has wounds to care for and needs to fluff up
and we cannot wait to give him all of
the love
support
and healing
that our heart and arms can hold.
Rescuing a dog saves two...
the one you rescued..
and the one that will take the space,
 
Think about saving a soul...or donating to the great work that the recues do.
 
Here's to you, Bo . I know you are smiling...and drooling.

Thank you and much joy and love for you and Finnegan. When you lost Bo I couldn't leave a comment -- I am still grieving the loss of my most loved rescue collie and your words were so touching. But now I have adopted another rescue collie and permanently foster another and you are finding new love with another big black (and white) dog. There's truth in the saying that each rescue dog makes more room in your heart.

Linda, this made me cry tears of joy for you.
Welcome Finnegan, you are in for a great ride with a great family who will love you to death.
Kisses, kisses, kisses.

He is precious... we have 2 Goldens, 1 a rescue and she is the most loving and I think, grateful, dog you can imagine. She had a horrific start like Finn but is only kind and loving. We have had her 4 years and she is plumped up and the outward scars are healed but from time to time we will see her flinch in terror or cower in response to a sudden move or a loud sound not usual in our home and I feel sad that somewhere deep down she still has memories of bad times. We tell her the start might have been rough but the end will be sweet :) Welcome home Finn!!

Thank you for adopting and for sharing this incredibly important topic in such a beautiful and loving way. We found our way into rescue after the loss of a beloved cat that had found us. The sweetest hello and the saddest goodbye. No words are truer. Thank you for sharing them.
