Miracle Tiny Chihuahua pups – Pinky and Peanut! Read their amazing rescue story.

Pinky(the white one) and Peanut are our miracle puppies! They are now almost 12 weeks old and were rescued by our foundation when they were an hour old. Their poor mom was a tiny chi who arrived at a downtown vet clinic with two puppies already dead inside her! The owners waited too long to get her medical attention. An emergency C section was performed and Pinky and Peanut were saved, but their poor mom, who was septic, died that night. An incredible angel named Christina Becker stepped in immediately to foster and bottle feed the two little girls. She has had them from day-one and has seen them go from bottle feeding babies to adorable tiny pups who love to play with her cat and pitbull Bella! Pinky and Peanut are very bonded and we will not separate them, so we are looking for one home for both girls. We want a very safe and calm home, no chaos or anywhere where they could get hurt.

They are going to be very small, even full grown. Experienced small chihuahua owners would be ideal. We would like owners who are not gone all day and can devote lots of time and attention to the tiny pair.

Please do not contact us if you are only looking to adopt one of them. They absolutely are going to be adopted as a pair. Pups are vaccinated but not yet spayed or microchipped. They are still too young but will be spaying them when we feel
they are big enough.

There are no words to thank Christina for giving them unconditional love and round-the-clock care when they were tiny babies, and her continued care as the little girls went from bottle feeding to solid food. She truly saved their lives!

The Miraculous Rescue and Transformation of Lizzy

After astounding medical treatment, Lizzy the Schnauzer is ready for her forever home!

Lizzy - Before and AfterA brave, stray Schnauzer mix named Lizzy had her jaw shattered after being brutally kicked as she was defending a puppy on the streets of Tijuana, Mexico. Unable to eat or drink for weeks, word of Lizzy’s desperate situation reached the rescue community in Los Angeles. Lizzy was rescued, and rushed across the border by The Forgotten Dog Foundation, along with the puppy she was defending. With time of the essence, Lizzy was taken immediately to a veterinary hospital in Los Angeles, where, after a week of being on a feeding tube, her jaw was put back together, saving her life. Thanks to skilled orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Robert Olds, who performed a five-hour surgery on her broken jaw, Lizzy was able to eat and drink again within 48 hours post surgery.

And then her journey of healing began…

“Lizzy reminds us all in rescue that everything is possible when a pack of people work together to save just one dog. Miracles can happen. Lizzy is one of those special, spirited dogs that keep us all going, even in the darkest hours of being in the trenches of animal rescue.” Linzi Glass, Executive Director of The Forgotten Dog Foundation shared.

Watch the amazing video of Lizzy’s rehabilitation and miraculous transformation, and witness how, after all she had been through, Lizzy found happiness and love.

Dolly: A Beautiful Transformation

What a success story! An amazing transformation … one rescue dog’s story!

Watch Dolly’s rescue video now.

As rescuers, the most rewarding part of what we do is being an active part of the miraculous transformation of a dog in need. Dolly the poodle is one such magical rescue story.

We received a call from a woman in Sylmar, saying that a very matted, stray dog had been scrounging for food in trash cans in a vacant lot for months. She had tried to catch her, but to no avail, so was finally reaching out to rescue. With the help of Eldad Hagar of Hope for Paws, we managed to get Dolly that same day. She was in such horrific shape it was shocking even to us well seasoned rescuers. Dolly could barely see, and her matted fur was so heavy and thick it was tearing from her skin. What pain she must have endured. We rushed her immediately to the groomers where they shaved her, and removed 10 pounds of matting from this 15 pound dog! Once in a foster home, Dolly began to thrive. With lots of TLC and good nutrition she was ready for a home within a month. She was adopted, along with another rescue poodle that we had, by a wonderful woman. Dolly, now named Paris, lives the good life with her poodle sister, Nicky, in a lovely house in Cheviot Hills.

Its dog’s like Dolly that keep us doing the work we do…saving one dog at a time.

With your continued support, we are able to rescue more dogs like Paris!

Saving Roo!

THE FORGOTTEN DOG FOUNDATION SAVES ROO, A 3 MONTH OLD PIT PUP, WITH DEFORMED FROM LEG, FROM THE SLA SHELTER…NOW, WITH YOUR HELP, HIS JOURNEY TO HEALING BEGINS.

A few weeks ago, we got an email from a wonderful former adopter, attaching a picture of an adorable pit bull pup at the SLA shelter. It was more than just a, “please save this cute pup” Facebook post, rather a plea to help a pup who had a deformed front paw, which made his chances of being adopted almost impossible.

With the help of Ric Browde, Cassandra Mann and Andrea Braver, we started the process to save this poor pup!

The shelter vet noted on his paperwork that he did not believe that Roo’s damaged front paw was congenital, rather damaged in an accident of some kind**….we shudder to think what cruel person let him suffer with such an injury then dumped him at the shelter!

Roo was brought to our fosters house and he immediately wanted to play with the other dogs! It was great to see him roll over and wrestle, but heartbreaking to see him stumble ad fall to catch up to them as they all ran outside to play.

We have an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon next week, and are hopeful that he will be able to give Roo the chance to run and play like all puppies should! If they cannot repair his leg we will look into a prosthetic leg. We will let you know how the visit with the Doctor goes. Fingers crossed and say a prayer!

Please help us and support the medical expenses for Roo ! A $5 donation will make a difference. We will keep you updated on Roo’s journey and greatly appreciate your kindness and concern for this most deserving pup!

**Update — We have good news!**

Roo met with the really wonderful Dr. Olds at VCA Animal Hospital on Friday.

Roo caused quite a stir in the waiting room, with everyone wanting to know what was wrong with his leg.

After Dr. Olds examined Roo, who was very well behaved, Dr. Olds determined that the deformity was congenital.
He did a series of X-rays and showed us where Roo is missing bone. He has no femur to speak of, but the good news is that Dr. Olds said that we should NOT amputate the leg. Rather, he would perform a surgery to straighten the leg, fuse the bones and set it in a splint. This means that Roo will have 4 legs!

Dr. Olds explained that the leg would never be fully functioning, but it would give him balance and stability. Dr Olds said that this was a rare surgery but he had done a few cases like Roo’s in the past. He showed us a picture of an adult pit bull with his wonderful family who had a leg just like Roo’s…and he looked amazing!

So HAPPY NEWS FOR ROO -MAN!

His surgery is set for this Thursday! While Dr. Olds is kindly giving us a rescue rate and discount, we will still need to raise funds for Roo, so please donate! Every dollar will help Roo to be a happy 4 legged pup!

ROO THANKS YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

“Little’s Program” begins with The Forgotten Dog Foundation and Sevadog

THE FORGOTTEN DOG AND SEVADOG TEAM UP WITH A “LITTLE’S PROGRAM”

The Forgotten Dog Foundation is pleased to announce the formation of a small dog, “Little’s Program” with good friends and fellow rescuers, Mandy and Jeremy DeGuc of SEVADOG in Eugene.

Mandy and Jeremy, who mostly focus on bully breeds, and take in so many from rescues in L.A. ,are the gold standard in how to rehabilitate and re-home a dog. We have been working with SEVADOG closely for over a year, and have sent many pit pups and adult pits up to them in that time period. We have been so impressed with their professional, yet completely hands on approach, and just like us, they are diligent, loving and super-careful with home checks and adoptions. They are also dog trainers, so all the dogs leave SEVADOG with excellent manners and training, and if there is a problem, Mandy and Jeremy are there for extra training or a quick tune up.

After a visit to their ZEN DEN in lovely Eugene, where the dogs live happily – it’s just like being in a home- Mandy and I discussed setting up a small dog program where we could start to send some of our adorable dogs, as well as bonded pairs, and hard to place dogs, that were having little interest in over- saturated dog rescue land in L.A.

Some minor construction and very attractive decorating was done so that the small dog ZEN DEN was ready for a few of our little’s!
Last Saturday, thanks to Eldad Hagar’s generosity and Yehuda Netanel of Wings of Rescue, five of our small dogs flew up to Eugene. A few tears were shed, especially for Bryant, our Maltipoo who has been with us for 2 years! But, once Mandy started sending happy pictures, all the tears ceased. As you can see, all the dogs are doing great!

SEVADOG and THE FORGOTTEN DOG share the belief that quality, not quantity is what best serves our rescue dogs, so that each dog can get all the care, vetting, grooming, training and attention that he/she deserves. None of our dogs go into homes without collars, tags, martingales and a very thorough home check done. Both our groups believe in a trial period, so that we can all be certain that this is the right match for pup and person. We also both take back all dogs within that trail period, and will take back any dog for the rest of their lives. It is THE FORGOTTEN DOG FOUNDATION’s privilege and honor to be in partnership with SEVADOG in this exciting new LITTLE’S PROGRAM.

We are excited to send the next group of little dogs up as soon as SEVADOG has placed the first five.
