13yr old Shasta needs a home!

Shasta's owner passed away and she is being looked after by one family member and they do not want her. They are currently sending her off a couple of days a week to a kennel / boarding facilty and a few days with the remaining family member.

Shasta is up to date on shots, no medical issues and is apparently good with other dogs and cats.

If you are interested in helping this gal out please pm me. She has until September to find herself a home!

:sad: That's the gal you and Sylvie were telling me about the other day. Poor sweetie. I wish I had room here but just can't see it.
I will keep my fingers crossed a gardian angel will come along soon. :pray:

OMG.....I want her :lovestruck:

But we're looking at finally bringing my in-laws senior to our house, because if she doesn't lose weight she'll probably be dead in a year. With three dogs in a bungalow there is no way I can take any more :sad: I really hope she finds a home! :cry:

I can tell this girl is going to haunt my thoughts.....

I dont want to change the subjust of this thread but it also points out a haunting reminder that we all need to consider what will happen to our beloved pets if something happens. You never know and they could end up euthanized, or not wanted by anyone, sitting in shelters etc etc. Please pass the word on to those you know that have pets to consider ahead of time what should be done IF that time comes. Make the plan, put it in writing and tell someone so they know what should be done! it is soooo very important. Last but not least be sure that you have discussed it and everyone knows what should happen.

Then poor puppers like this one one sit around waiting to see whats gonna happen next! I bet she is confused! :sad:

Thank you everyone!

Winston, this is heartbreaking. I am going to try to relay this pupper to all my contacts.

Is there a time limit on this dog?

Awww Ben-Max,hopefully you can find someone to take her ,,she looks soo sad:sad:
I would take her in a heartbeat if I could..
You are an :angel2:for trying:grouphug:

My son took in an old Sheltie(:rip:Trixie) after the owner had died,she sat for weeks at the front-door waiting for her owner to come and get her,it was heartbreaking.

It's Winston and Sylvie that are the guardian angels for this girl. All I can do is network to try and help. Together and with my contacts I am sure we can come up with something.

It's the seniors that really tug at me. I personally have a soft spot for them and I refuse to walk by them when going to pull them out from wherever. Sure having the good looking, young ones are great and re-home quickly, but the older ones have little hope. You can see it in their eyes.

Yep - many sleepless nights for the elderly but it's not over until it's over right?

Shasta's a beauty, Winston. I don't understand why the family won't take her in. :sad: What a way to honor the memory of their loved one! :cry:

I hope the perfect :angel: comes along for her soon! :goodvibes:

My thoughts exactly. Why would anyone not take in their families animals? I know that my mom adores her dane and heaven forbid anything happen to her, I would want what was closest to her - her monster dog! I don't understand people at all.

I wish we were better off right now, I'd take her in a heartbeat! It really saddens me when these very loved dogs loose their owners then no one they know will take them in.... so sad.:sad: Unfortunately with Chase not working we can barely afford to keep up with the cat costs around here... (:laughing: the cats get their goodies and we are left with $10 for groceries this week! Shows my priorities!!! :lovestruck::rolleyes:) But she sounds perfect for us, a little older so not rambunctious and good with cats!

Lots of :pray::goodvibes: that she finds the perfect 'retirement' home!!
