Gilly #25 **medical hold**

5/18/18 Update: Hey you guys!!!!  It's been a while since my last post and I have some great news to share.  I had dental surgery last week and I did GREAT under anesthesia!  They removed the tumor on my cheek, the skin tag on my belly, and a small thing on my right tonsil, and all came back BENIGN!!  (Are you impressed with all the big words I'm learning?)   I still have another dental surgery ahead of me, and then we have to deal with that thing on my bum.  I'm not looking forward to any of it so I had foster mom add "extra big jar of peanut butter for Gilly" to the grocery list.  I'm still on medical hold but if you can't wait to meet me, just let the rescue know and we car arrange a date.

3/5/18 Update: Hey everyone, great news - all of my lumps and bumps are benign! But the doctor still wants to remove two of them, and I still have that teeth cleaning to endure. So I'm still not ready for my forever home, but I will be! My eye infection and upper respiratory infection are clearing up. 

Hello Everyone! My name is Gilly. I'm estimated to be around 11yrs old and I weigh 47lbs. My family adopted me 10 years ago in Missouri, but then decided they couldn't care for me anymore so they dropped me back at the shelter. Some very nice people brought me to Minnesota (it’s cold here!) and now I have a foster mom and a foster brother, a 10 year old basset hound. I’m not food aggressive, toy aggressive, or any kind of aggressive. I don’t even know what the word means! I like to go on walks and car rides. I’m getting up there in years but I still get around just fine.  I’m house-broken and I’m fine resting on the floor, but if you want to lift me onto the couch, I won’t complain about it! I don't even need to be kenneled when foster mom leaves. The doctors wants to check out some bumps and lumps on me, and clean my teeth. I’m also getting over a respiratory infection and an eye infection, so I’m not quite ready for my forever home just yet. But my foster mom will keep you updated on everything, so check back in to see how I’m doing!

Spruce #26 **Medical Hold**

Spruce is around 3-4 years old and 22 pounds. We think he is a Dachshund/Beagle Mix (red like a dachshund, markings like a beagle, dachshund feet, beagle voice). Might have some other breeds mixed in. Spruce is being treated for Lyme's and another tick born disease.  He has cataracts which we will learn more about soon after his doctors appt. It looks like he had a crushed pelvis that had healed without being treated so had surgery to remove femur head so he is now more mobile. He may need some physical therapy. We are not sure how he does with cats or kids but is great with other dogs.  He is very easy going and mellow. He has a beagle howl, not it's not too loud. We are still learning about Spruce and will continue to update!


Blanche #32

Blanche gets along with cats and dogs both, but would most likely be fine as an only pet too. what she craves and seeks out at all times is interaction with people. Because of this she has a bit of separation anxiety. 


Layla #31

Layla has just arrived! As we learn more about her we will post an update. Stay Tuned!

Layla got a haircut at Spring Fling!


Please welcome Fred, a two year Basset/Husky mix to MNBR! He is energetic, playful, adorable, and sweet. Stay tuned for more information!
