CubbyGumbyCubby was found motherless at only five weeks old.  He is one of many puppies who have been

recently dumped in the frigid cold Bottineau region of North Dakota along the Canadian border.  They all have had mange and are very malnourished.  Cubby was taken in by a family who realized when he was unable to walk that they could not care for his extensive needs, so they took him to animal control where he would have been euthanized if it weren't for a kind rescuer, Jackie.  Jackie took Cubby into her home and posted pleas for help.  Sadly, mange is the least of Cubby's problems.  All four of his legs are misshapen.  His bones are very soft and not forming correctly.  Cubby suffered malnutrition to such an extent that it effected his growth.

Nine dogs were rescued from a hoarding situation in southeast Nebraska.  One dog was rescued from a city pound in Iowa.  It all seemed like typical days at the shelter until we realized that Bally, rescued from the hoarder home, and Joy, rescued from a pound in Iowa were just days away from giving birth.  As all of the new rescues settled in Joy and Bally began preparations for the arrival of their babies.  Joy, a small mixed breed girl resembling a border collie, was first to deliver 5 lovely babies.  From the moment Joy was rescued she had the biggest smile on her lovely face.  Everyone was completely smitten with her.  The birth of the little ones went without complication and she and the babies soon moved to a foster home where they are enjoying themselves tremendously and receiving wonderful care.  Just days later, Bally, a mixed breed resembling a jack russell terrier, began giving birth to 7 lovely babies, each so unique and different in color.  Mom and babies all did well and are at the shelter rooming right next to the office in a large space with many snuggly blankets.  Bally was underweight from the bad conditions she came from but she is now enjoying her endless buffet of good food at HUA.  She gets to go for walks several times a day on the shelter grounds which she loves, but she is always anxious to get back to her sweet little babies.  She is very protective of them and such a good mom.  Like Joy, she has a constant smile on her face.  She is such a dear girl who is so happy to be rescued and have a warm, loving place to take care of her pups.

Joy's babies were named by our Facebook fans.  All of their names mean happiness and joy.  They are Bliss, Felicity, Freude, Kiyo, and Khushi.  Bally's Lucky 7 babies will be named after casinos in Las Vegas, as was Bally.  The best news of all is that Joy has been adopted by her foster mom!  Once the pups are old enough they will be on our website for adoption.  We are sure Bally will have adoption offers in no time as well, as she is one of the sweetest, most intelligent, fun little dogs we have known.  She will need to stay to finish out her mom duties for several more weeks before she can be adopted.  Both she and Joy will be spayed and all of the pups will be spayed or neutered before they are placed, because while darling puppies are more fun than a barrel of monkeys, it is not something that we wish to have happen ever again.  These moms and babies deserve to have lives of luxury in wonderful homes where they will not contribute to the overpopulation problem or have the stress or health problems associated with breeding.  We will make sure that happens for them.

If left at the city pound in Iowa Joy and her unborn babies would have been euthanized.  If left in the hoarder home Bally would have given birth in such filthy conditions that it would have been unlikely for her babies to have survived.  We wish to extend sincere thanks to all who helped in these rescues and especially to our supporters who help us save lives whether it be 1, 2, 10, 22 or 100 at a time.  To Joy, Bally, their 12 babies and the other 8 rescued from the hoarder home, your support means the world.  You have helped us to save their precious lives.  Donations for their care can be made online at www.hua.org.

Ruskin7

When Ruskin first arrived at HUA he had no coat at all.  He was riddled with mange and had only one little speck of fur by his tail.  His skin was burning hot to the touch because he was so full of infection.  Ruskin arrived at a city pound in Kansas in this condition and there was no way the pound could afford the time or money to try to heal him.  He was scheduled to die if a rescue group didn't step forward.  No breed rescue would take him because in his condition there were no guesses as to what breed he might actually be.  With help from our friends in Kansas Ruskin was soon on his way to HUA.  Even though he was in pure misery he greeted us happily with his stubby little tail wagging 100 miles an hour.  Ruskin is a very smart boy.  He knew that he had been saved and had arrived at a safe place where the people would help him.  It took months of treatment but finally Ruskin grew a gorgeous brownish red coat. It has become clear that he is mostly Shar Pei.  He is so gorgeous and soft.  People who met him when he first arrived at HUA cannot believe he is the same dog.  Ruskin is now happier than ever.  He didn't even know that he could feel this good, and he is elated.  He is learning to sit and stay.  He adores people so very much and will do anything to please them.  He wakes up with his tail wagging and even wags his tail as he drifts off to sleep, realizing that his new found health, happiness and second chance at life is not a dream.  We would like to send a big thank you to all of our supporters who help to make happy endings like Ruskin's possible.
