adopted by a wonderful family and is now a Pets On Wheels
therapy dog at long-term care centers
and the Virginia G Piper Cancer Center.
Here is Belgium's story:
4-year old Belgium came
to Amazing Aussies in August 2008. She was turned in by her
owner for "not
getting along with another pet" and was thought of as
disposable. Belgium is also deaf and blind, so she
was scheduled for euthanasia. The alternative placement
volunteer placed a last ditch call to Amazing Aussies,
and we took her into our foster program. She went to a wonderful
foster home, who a month later, decided to
make Belgium a permanent part of their family. Belgium has gone
through a therapy dog assessment program
and is now making people happy just by being herself. She
travels to local hospitals and long term care
facilities. Her family reports that "Belgium is very
responsive to sick and elderly people and really seems to
shine at her job. She is truly blessed for this job and has made
a difference in many peoples' lives. She also
educates family members who have dogs, many of them Australian
Shepherds, about the results of
Merle-to-Merle breeding. Her disability has opened many peoples'

Belgium and all that
she does for others.

Special Needs Pup Makes Headlines in Beaufort! April 1, 2006
Karen Anderson, with the Lethal White Aussie Rescue in South Carolina was overjoyed with the publicity her very first 2006 Spring Fling held in Beaufort on April 1st!
Karen posted to the rescue group "Our Very Own Rosalie is THE RESCUE STORY OF THE 2006 SPRINGPETFLING!"
Rosalie was one of the lucky ones -- she was found wandering aimlessly at a truck stop when animal control picked her up. Maureen Dellolio, operator of Our Lady of Mercy's Catnip Cottage in Summerville, said the agency's routine procedure is euthanasia for deaf and blind dogs, but that they made an exception for Rosalie when they saw her wagging her tail in the parking lot after climbing a six-foot fence, escaping from her pen.
Roasalie now has her forever home with Maureen where she is able to detect cancer and diabetes in the cats!
You can read the entire article at The Beaufort Gazette Online: Pet fling raises awareness, fun.
Tennessee Judge Slam Dunks Puppy Mill Owner!
Please note this is older news from 2002, but still worth sharing!
Memphis, Tenn. (USA) - Last week The Commercial Appeal reported on a recent Tennessee Court ruling that was "worthy of a standing ovation."
Animal cruelty doesn't always require baseball bats and knives. If you've ever heard the phrase "puppy mill", you know what I'm talking about. Las week an animal cruelty conviction was upheld by Judge Alan Glenn, rebuking the appeal of a couple from Humboldt who had bred and kept as many as 350 dogs sick and starving in filthy kennels.
Not only did Judge Glenn deal very sternly with the offenders, he delivered an excellent oratory that ought to be framed above the door of every court that handles animal abuse cases.
Go to the link at Dogs in the News to find out what he did!

El Dorado Puppy Mill Bust, May 12, 2005
You can help by writing the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors: Rusty Duprey, Helen Baumann, Jack Sweeny, Charlie Pane (CHAIR OF BOARD), and David Solaro.
Rescues pulled together to find loving homes for these dogs and now it's time to let the County know you want these people punished and the puppy mill shut down forever! At this time they are STILL selling puppies!
