Fluffy

Meet Fluffy, who is our newest dog this week. He is approximately 7 months old and we believe he is a cross between a Saint Bernard and a Great Pyrenees. He was an owner surrender to a high kill shelter. He is breathtaking to look at and is as sweet as he is beautiful. He has long hair and is shiny white with a little wave to it. He is approximately 70 pounds. He is vaccinated but does need to be neutered which will be done Aug 2. Since we just got Fluffy,  there are many items Rosie does not yet about his likes, dislikes and personality. We will update more information as soon as we have it.

This is one of the new 6 dogs that came in this week that your donations will go to help.

Thank you for the recent donations on our fundrazr page. Please continue to help these pups. fundrazr.com/51GEee

Wilbur

St. Cloud’s Rescue would like for you to meet Wilbur. Wilbur is a special case. We don’t normally see dogs this old. Wilbur’s owner died and his daughter did not want any of the four dogs this man had. Their plan was to let them out in the street and fend for themselves. However, a wonderful rescue person received notification of this horrible, deadly plan and stepped in and took Wilbur to her home. She then contacted St. Cloud’s Rescue and we made arrangements for her to deliver him to us. As you can see by these pictures, Wilbur is an old boy, the vet believes he is somewhere between 10-13 years old. Wilbur is completely deaf and has some of the worse hips you can ever imagine. He is heartworm positive, not neutered and had been full of fleas. That is what we call a triple disaster. We have made arrangements for Wilber to get neutered and have put him on many medicines that will relieve the pain of his hips. The fleas are all gone and we are not sure if we will do the heartworm treatment due to his age and condition. That will be up to the vet in the months to come. He is a very gentle soul.

If any of you are wanting to offer a home where Wilbur could live out the rest of his life that would be fantastic. We do not know how many years Wilbur has left on this earth, but he is here now and we will make sure he is happy, safe, secure and that he knows what love is. This is one of the dogs that shows St Cloud’s takes in any dogs at any age and in any condition. This is one of the new 6 dogs that came in this week that your donations will go to help.

Moose

Moose is a gorgeous short haired male Saint. He was an owner surrender due to the family being not able to care for him. When we received Moose he had over 500 fleas on him and was skin and bones. We quickly took him to the vet and got shots done and full panel of bloodwork to be able to determine what care he needed. Based on his bloodwork he is very anemic due to the fleas drinking all of his blood. We are taking our time at giving him 3 quality meals a day to help build back his strength. He is a fabulous boy with a great loving personality. We have not introduced him to other dogs yet because he is not neutered. We are not able to do the neuter until his blood work returns to a normal level. If you are interested in meeting Moose, that is great and we will accept a deposit to hold him. However, he cannot go to a new home until he is well. He is approximately 2-3 years old and heartworm negative.

Handy

Handy is a cross between and Australian Shepherd and possibly a Rottie. He currently weights approximately 69 pounds and is full grown. Handy has had a very tough life. The story goes, he was owned by a street person who died and left Handy to live on his own in the streets. He had made friends with two other dogs which helped them to become a pack. The three of these pups were inseparable and protected each other from the cruelty that other people and animals bestowed upon him. With the help of two wonderful ladies they spent over 2 months trying to catch these three dogs and to be able to save them. After many hours of sitting and coaxing with treats Handy was able to be caught and taken to one of the volunteers homes. She promptly took Handy to the vet and got shots, heartworm test, flea and ticks removed. We received a call from this lovely lady and she asked if we would be willing to accept Handy into our program. He is still very shy and skittish, but wouldn’t you be if you lived on the street for over 2 years. He is approximately 3-4 years old and house trained. As most of you know we are a Saint rescue so Handy does not fit out normal profile. However, once you meet him anyone would fall madly in love with this gorgeous boy that just needs TLC and a wonderful forever home to make him feel secure. He is heartworm positive and will be neutered August 2nd. Once the neuter is healed we will arrange to have his heartworm treatment completed. The heartworm treatment will be covered with the funds that were raised by these two woman on FundRazz. If your heart is open to REALLY save a dog that is a true rescue story, please consider meeting our Handy.

Fred

Fred is an approximately 5 year old full gorgeous Saint. He is the kind of boy that likes to sleep and get a lot of love and attention. He would be perfect for someone who works during the day because Fred likes to sleep most of the day. He is a very low maintenance dog, does not require any medication at this time and just likes to go out a couple times a day to do his business and then stay close to his owner or be by himself. He does not require a crate, he is housetrained and does not destroy anything while you are away. However, that is here, so that is not a guarantee. Fred was an owner surrender to a high kill shelter which contacted us. He would do better being an only child and no children whatsoever. Fred was heartworm positive but after treatment he is now negative. He is neutered, up to date on all vaccinations and house trained.

Lucky

Lucky is a wonderful, lucky boy because he has wound up at St. Cloud’s Rescue!  As most of you know, we are the Saint Bernard Rescue for the Dallas area and take fabulous care of these dogs that have either been surrendered, lost, abandoned or in shelters. Lucky has had a little bit of all, he was a owner surrender, he was lost and was in a shelter. That is why we have named him Lucky.

Lucky is a 2 year old full Saint that weighs approximately 90 pounds. He is a little underweight but should not weigh more than 100 pounds based on his structure. He was just neutered, is totally housetrained and is a joy to be around. He is a boy that will require a privacy fence minimum 6 feet tall.  In Lucky’s past he was able to escape, however, we do not know what kind of fencing they had at the home he came from. Based on Lucky’s size and temperament he would make a great dog for any person or family. He is very kind and very quiet. If you are wanting a smaller Saint that is full grown and house trained, please consider Lucky.

PS… The not so good news is that he is heartworm positive and will be receiving treatment as soon as his neuter surgery is healed. He is available for adoption but can not go to his new home until after his heartworm treatment.

Toby

Toby is a 7 month old pure Saint Bernard puppy. He was purchased by a young lady as a puppy around 8 weeks old. Due to her living conditions she was unable to keep him and contacted us knowing we would make sure we would find the perfect home for her Toby. He is a fabulous, little boy that weights 73 pounds, current on all vaccination and housetrained. He loves to play. He will be getting neutered on July 17th. He is a little skittish of new people but it only takes him a few minutes to warm up. I expect him to be approx. 110-120 pounds when he is full grown. If you are wanting a young Saint that has received love and attention his whole life, please consider meeting out Toby. We definitely will not adopt this dog to any family or person with children under 5.

Bubba

Bubba is a fabulous sweetheart of a dog that loves every person and dog that he meets. He was living for 2 ½ months in a ditch in East Texas until a rescue person was kind enough to put him in her car and contact us. Yes, we know he is not a Saint, however, he is one of the sweetest and kindest dogs you would ever want to meet. He has received all of his shots, is neutered and is heartworm negative. He is housetrained and is looking for a wonderful home that will give him the love and attention he has so greatly deserved. When he came to us he had over 100 ticks on him and was full of dead fleas as well. He was skin and bones and had been skunked so he was in desperate need of many baths. He has received all the love and attention any one dog could ask for since he has been with us. He is approximately 85 pounds and we believe him to be a Anatolian/Lab mix with maybe a little Sharpe as well. The vet has put him at 1 ½ old. He is so loving you could not find a better family pet than Bubba. When he runs you can see some of the wrinkles on his face which is soooooo cute. He has a lab coat and lives with a Saint and they get along great!

Goldie

Meet our Goldie. Here in Texas, as many of you know, we have had some very severe storms this spring. Very recently we had a storm with 65 hour wind and during this storm a beautiful soaked female golden mix came to our gate. We quickly took her in and gave her food water and warmth. Signs and internet postings were sent out to try to find her home. That failed and she was taken to the shelter to give her the best chance of being reclaimed. While at the shelter she received shots and no chip was found. We had notified the shelter if no one claimed her we would take her to get well and taken care of until she was adopted. As many of us are used to, no one claimed her. We picked her up, got rid of all the ticks and fleas and now we are working to get her strong and healthy enough to be adopted. She is very underweight at this point and we do not know how old she really is until she gets her vet appointment. She looks like a golden retriever with pointed ears. Goldie is one of the most gentle and quiet dogs you could ever meet. We have introduced her to our nicest dogs and she gets alone great with them. If you have wanted a golden but could not find one or did not want to purchase one Miss Goldie is a fabulous option to consider.

Gypsy

Gypsy is a 3 year old owner surrender full Saint Bernard. She was loved and well treated at her previous home but due to her owners losing their jobs, they could not afford to keep her. She is a gorgeous Saint weighing a little over 100 pounds and has coat that feels like silk!  She has the typical Saint personality plus 50 percent more energy!

She is very active and enjoys running and playing more than most Saints.   If you are looking for the perfect Saint please consider meeting Miss Gypsy. Gypsy is housetrained and up to date on all vaccinations and will be spayed 6/19.

Gabby

 

Gabby is special, special, female Saint. She was an owner surrender at the age of 8. She has been fully vetted and blood tested and all blood work came back in normal ranges. She is heartworm negative, spayed and is a joy to be around. She is great with other Saints. She is currently on medications to help her hips due to her age. There is no surgery required. This is just normal with older Saints. If you are wanting a fabulous Saint that will give you love and attention without headaches Miss Gabby is a girl to consider. She weighs 125 pounds.
