Operation LBD Grace

Not Yet Available for Adoption – Will be Available Soon! 

 

 

OLBD Grace is one of our newest intakes with the most gorgeous head of fur!!   She is an approximately 7 yo purebred, female Boykin Spaniel.  She is not yet available for adoption but will be soon.  Grace has this to share about herself:   My name is Grace but my foster family calls me Gracie-Girl. My foster mom says I am a sweet, calm soul and wonders how that happened since I am a Boykin; then she just laughs.  When foster mom picked me up, I was scared, timid, and a little on the skinny side.  I didn’t know that life as a dog could be happy and safe. So, foster family set out to show me the good life!   I was introduced to the rest of my foster-fam including 2 Boykin siblings and 3 things she called cats. Then I got to explore the big backyard. It was weird getting to walk on all the grass and dirt, but I soon understood that I could explore all over and stay safe. Exploring outside quickly became one of my favorite activities. Foster mom is so proud because I mastered the doggie dog in less than a day! She gets tickled when I stand outside but poke my head in just to say “Hi”.

Mom is so proud of me and says I am a happy eater. She says I like feeding time and I do not mind sharing with my fur siblings- at all. I have even learned how to take turns when foster mom and dad give snacks.  They are both so happy when I wait my turn. Turns out I like to make nice people happy because they make me happy. Mom says I just want someone of my own to love fur-ever. I love naps and I sleep through the night because I know I am safe and probably because foster mom and dad let me sleep in the bed with them. I think they like cuddles as much as I do!  We all learned quickly that I do not like thunderstorms; they scare me. I want to stay right by your side in nasty weather because that make me feel so much better.

Foster mom and dad agree that the perfect home for me could have other animals as long as there were not aggressive since I do really well with other dogs and cats. Kids are okay, too, but maybe if they are little older so they understand not to play rough with me. I would also do really well with someone who lives alone because I love to follow people around and shadow them. I would love a big yard with lots of room to explore but I also like to go places where I can wear a leash, too, because I have learned to walk well on a leash. Foster mom says I do much better in the car and am learning to enjoy the rides.

I love bully sticks because they are yummy and keep me busy but I haven’t quite figured out other toys yet, but I will. You could help me with that! I am not scared to visit the vet or the groomers and I love to be brushed! Foster mom says when my coat grows out it will be beautiful if my top knot is any indicator.  I am a sweet girl with a very calm spirit. I am a little older and a little wiser than lots of pups, but my puppy side is learning to play again. I need a family who wants to keep me safe and let me learn that it is okay to play and have fun. I need to have a family that has lots of love to give me because I am full of love…at least that what foster mom keeps saying.

Grace’s foster Mom works from home most days and says Grace is a fantastic work companion!   She has not been crated with them because she spent most of her life in a cage and she’s learning how to live without bars for now.

As with all our dogs, you will need to complete an adoption application and be fully and completely interviewed, processed and approved prior to being considered for Grace.   Please always remember, it is our job to find OLBD Grace and all our rescues, the right fit home, always!!!  We will never waiver from putting the dog’s needs first!  Thank you for your understanding!  

Operation LBD Roxie

New Intake – Heartworm Positive – looking for a Foster-to-Adopt home ONLY

 

 

OLBD Roxie is one of our newest intakes.   She is an approximately 3 yo purebred, female Boykin Spaniel.   A perfect description of Roxie:  “I’m not little I’m just concentrated cuteness!” as coined by her current foster Mom!  Roxie is a quiet, shy, thoughtful girl who, once she gets to know you, will smooch and happily and warm up to you.  She is looking for a gentle, caring and compassionate home that will help build her confidence and understand she is a bit shy when meeting new people.  Roxie’s ideal home would be a home with someone who can give her plenty of love, attention, and patience. She may need some time to settle into her new home. Roxie is working hard on her social skills to get over her shyness. If she had her way, she would stay tucked away in her kennel all day and have her special person crawl in there with her.  She may be small but once she gets to know you, she loves to run and play ball.  She’s in a foster home with several other foster fursiblings and does well with them.

Unfortunately, Roxie sadly tested positive for those nasty heartworms during vetting!!  Because of this finding, Roxie will ONLY be available as a Foster-to-Adopt to a person or family who can see her through full heartworm treatment.  Because of this situation, we want our dogs who go through heartworm treatment to be able to bond with their forever family from the start and not go through months of treatment with a temporary foster only to then be placed in another home after being cleared of treatment and after bonding with the foster.   We don’t believe that’s fair to the dog nor the foster – attachments do take place.  OLBD pays for the full cost of the heartworm treatment and formal adoption will take place AFTER she has been cleared of heartworms by the vet.  If you believe you can see Roxie through heartworm treatment and give her the love and care she needs or would like more information on what exactly that entails, please email Cindi Love at operationlbd@yahoo.com.

As with all our dogs, you will need to complete an adoption application and be fully and completely interviewed, processed and approved prior to Roxie coming into your home.

Please always remember, it is our job to find OLBD Roxie and all our rescues, the right fit home, always!!!  We will never waiver from putting the dog’s needs first!  Thank you for your understanding!  

Operation LBD Susie

New Intake – Heartworm Positive – looking for a Foster-to-Adopt home ONLY

 

 

OLBD Susie is one of our newest intakes.   She is an approximately 3.5 yo purebred, female Boykin Spaniel.  Susie is a sweet, relaxed girl with a gentle and nurturing soul. Ideal for a family with older, dog respectful children, she’d be the perfect companion for a family who wants a quiet, friendly pet with good house manners.  She bonds incredibly strongly with her ‘special person’, and thus becomes worried when she is left alone for too long. She needs an understanding owner who can work with her to become more independent and who has time to be home with her for part of the day.  Susie’s ideal home would be best with someone who can spend time with her but also provide her with regular physical activity and toys that can stimulate her mind to help her stay busy when you’re not around or just in the next room.

Unfortunately, Susie sadly tested positive for those nasty heartworms during vetting!!  Because of this finding, Susie will ONLY be available as a Foster-to-Adopt to a person or family who can see her through full heartworm treatment.  Because of this situation, we want our dogs who go through heartworm treatment to be able to bond with their forever family from the start and not go through months of treatment with a temporary foster only to then be placed in another home after being cleared of treatment and after bonding with the foster.   We don’t believe that’s fair to the dog nor the foster – attachments do take place.  OLBD pays for the full cost of the heartworm treatment and formal adoption will take place AFTER she has been cleared of heartworms by the vet.  If you believe you can see Susie through heartworm treatment and give her the love and care she needs or would like more information on what exactly that entails, please email Cindi Love at operationlbd@yahoo.com.

Operation LBD Brandy

HW + and Currently in her Foster-to-Adopt home pending Adoption after HW Treatment!!

 

Update:  OLBD Brandy is HW + and has found her Foster-to-Adopt home, she is Not Available!

Hello there… I’m OLBD Brandy… I’m approximately 7 years old and is as sweet as can be. I have served the Boykin world well by having multiple litters, but I didn’t get much freedom being kept in a crate. Now is my time to be what I truly wish for and that is being a lap dog and following my person everywhere. It’s good that I am a petite girl weighting 26 pounds, so I can fit well by your side with my head in your lap. I do love going on walks whether it’s on a leash or me by your side. I never wonder off or get distracted. I know to go into the fenced yard or go ‘bed’ or ‘kennel.’ I am very laid back and never chew anything. I am not food motived… I am person pleaser! I like both female and male people. I love my trips to Tractor Supply (we go often for that food my foster mom feeds those huge dogs she calls horses), and I ride in the truck there sitting in my back seat (I can jump into the truck too!) then I get to walk all around gathering supplies. I do like the big horse dogs, but I do get tied at the fence to keep me from getting stepped on since I get under them (I’m not afraid). I don’t mind being tied… I just watch and lay on the big piles of hay that are comfortable. Oh, and I love riding the gator around the farm. Even though I was not kept inside, I get to be inside now and have not had one mistake! I love laying on my inside bed or laying at my foster’s feet while she works. I stay quiet and take my naps while she works. Even though my foster mom loves me, she knows I would make someone wanting a true companion very happy and loved. My foster mom says, ‘you can’t find a better, sweeter or more appreciative petite girl than Brandy.’

I am taking medicine every day for my heartworms to prepare me for that shot to get rid of these awful worms. I will be spayed too as no more litters of pups for me! It will be a joyful & loving life for me from here on out since I was rescued!!!

Brandy has found her foster-to-adopt home.   Please always remember, it is our job to find OLBD Brandy and all our rescues, the right fit home, always!!!  We will never waiver from putting the dog’s needs first!  Thank you for your understanding!
