Wordless-Not "Rescue Me Week - Day #3" Wednesday

This is Day #3 of Mazie's Rescue Me Week.

During the week of November 7-11, Mazie is going to be honoring her Grampa J that passed away earlier this summer by having Rescue Me Week.  For everyone that pawticipates in this event will have the opportunity to have 100 green papers donated to your favorite rescue/shelter.  Mazie will be having a drawing the following week and 5 different blogs will win.  That will be 5 different rescues/shetlers that will be so blessed to receive 100 green papers all because of Grampa J and his love for animals.  How cool is that we get to honor Grampa J and help homeless pets find furever homes and then continue to help them with the dontation in Grampa J's honor.

One of our favorite rescues that we are heavily involved with is Guardian Angel Basset Rescue (GABR).  Mom volunteers as a transporter for them and we move bassets from shelters, to their foster homes, to their furever homes.  

The last couple of days we have highlighted the bonded basset pairs at GABR.  Today we are going to move to the "Senior" hounds that are currently in a foster home.


Crystal found her way to GABR by way of a shelter.  She is 8 years old and a beautiful red and white.  She has settled in very nicely with her foster family.  She gets along great with her foster siblings which come in
all sizes.  It is unknown about cats, but given her personality, I don’t think there would be any problems.  Crystal has been around children 6 months to 6 years and loves all the pats and rubs.

Crystal is short, even for a basset.  She does not jump or attempt to get on the furniture or counter surf.  Give her a comfy pillow and she will snooze for hours.  Because her legs are so short, she does have problems with stairs, one or two steps are fine.  Crystal wants to be with her humans, maybe she is afraid of being abandoned and on her own again.  If she thinks you have forgotten about her, she will gently swat you with her front paw to let you know she wants some attention.

She is a cuddler and would sit and let you pet her all day.    She can also be such a clown as she shakes and tosses her stuffed animals in the air and then chases them.  Crystal is housebroken and does not need to be crated when you are gone. She goes to the door when she wants out and will bark to let you
know she is ready to come in.  Crystal is very low maintenance and such a loving companion.  Open your door, give her a chance and Crystal will fill your home and heart with love.

So if you can open your home to a hound why not it be a "Senior" hound.  If you are interseted in adopting Crystal you can check out the GABR website for information on how to adopt to complete the necessary paperwork.

  10. What a Most Beautiful and Gentle girlie Crystal is. My momma grew up with beagles so she has a soft spot in her heart for hounds. She said she just wants to snuggle Crystal and stroke those long, soft ears. I sure hope that somebuddy out there wants to do the same and will take Crystal home with them.

    Wiggles & Wags,

  11. What a great thing Miss. Mayzie is doing; I'm so glad to see everyone participating in it! I hope my raiser will let me join in!
    Crystal is a beauty, I do hope she is able to find that perfect someone.
