    After writing my rescue dog’s story, the form wouldn’t allow me to upload one photo. Then, I couldn’t get the “error” message to reset—–and couldn’t send the story. Aggravating.

    This is a great idea. Folks need to hear about the good out there in the world, and not just the negative that makes up too much of the news.
    Thanks for being a positive force.

    I have 4 tescue dogs my st. BERNARD is a special needs dog. He has almost daily seizures. His meds cost approx. 300 dollars a month. He still has seizers and the vet said if we stop his meds he will die. Right he is a lot of work to keep his seizures at 3 to 4 times a week. Thats why we can’t get another dog right now. He also had bloat and his surgery was 5000 dollars. We also have a 6lb dog who was starving and found in an abandoned pet shop with 2 of her sisters. She had to have most of her teeth removed and has 8 left. I have her on a special soft diet. I also have a 11lb female who was football kicked by her former owner and lost her babies. She now hates men. My last rescue is a 2 & 1/2 month old found in the street chasing cars. He is a pug mix and a lover.
