To say Dove is BELOVED by her DSDA family is an understatement. Found shot and abandoned in a field, Dove was pregnant at the time of her rescue. All of Dove's puppies have been adopted but she is still dreaming of her forever home!

This 77 pound year-old ball of fluff is super sweet and dog friendly. She'd be fine with older kids and we are "on the fence" about cats.

Dove is a Great Pyrenees/lab mix (best guess!). She requires a wrought fenced yard and an owner who has time to spoil her. She loves doggy daycare. Another playful dog in the home is a plus!


"Nova loves her time at the dog park and she is getting so much better at playing with other dogs", says her Foster Dad.

Nova was rescued in a rural area near Corsicana where she and litter mates Cosmo and Astrid (both pending adoption) where abandoned. The pups were all very shy. But that is changing as they continue to blossom with love and patience.

Check out more information about Nova at She needs another dog in the her forever home to continue showing her "the ropes". A fenced yard is ideal and an owner who has lots of time to spend taking her on adventures by day and settling into a good movie at night.

Shelby was recently rescued from the rural soccer field south of Dallas. The same soccer field we rescued the #dsdapack29 from-a notorious dumping ground for unwanted and injured dogs.

The day our Vice-President Relle picked Shelby up, reported they had seen the dog in the same spot for several days - unable to move. She was exhausted, starving and severely injured.

She willfully got in the car with assistance and slept all the way back to Richardson. It was immediately noted that Shelby was not able to weight bear on her right rear foot. X-rays revealed an old injury where several fractures were trying to mend unsuccessfully at the base of her leg where the ankle and foot meet. The only treatment option is amputation as there was no way to repair the bones. This poor girl is also heartworm positive.

Shelby is scheduled for the amputation of her right rear leg April 30th. Once she has recovered from surgery we will start heartworm treatment. Interestingly enough and to our surprise Shelby is spayed but not microchipped.

She has not let her injury and neglect bring her down. She's very sweet with her foster fur siblings and the people she meets. She is a real gem who deserves to be pain free and given a second chance at a happy life with a family who loves her.

Shelby's medical care will run well over $3,000 but she is worth every cent. If you would like to help please donate or if you know someone who would like to help please share her post.

Thank you!
