Sonny & Deacon Need Help Desperately!

Deacon (in front) & Sonny (lighter color) hang out around Richard’s Mom and Manifred. I just will never understand dogs, because Manifred and Richard’s Mom won’t let them eat. Deacon and Sonny run away with their tails between their legs when we feed them because Richard’s Mom and Manifred growl at them. It is so sad. There is a girl in heat around the area, and I guess Deacon and Manifred got into it over her. Deacon, being the lover he is, got the short end of the stick in the fight. To put it lightly, he lost. His face is so torn up. On top of that, there is a local church across the street and the people were outside and saw the whole thing. It scared them and they are saying that they are going to call animal control on these two dogs. Deacon and Sonny will surely be euthanized if they end up in animal control. We need fosters for these lovers. Deacon runs up to me when we pull up and hops on top of my lap. He is such a friendly guy. The two of them seem to get along with other dogs just fine, unless there is a lady in heat, that is. If you know anyone willing to foster, or if you know of another rescue that would be willing to help us out with these guys, please pass this along. These two are way too sweet to be put down. PLEASE HELP!

I'm late coming into this but I think this post is a very good example of why you can't sugarcoat things and post only the "good" stuff. I think you guys need to be honest about what goes on out there and think you are so brave and admirable and lifesavers for these dogs who so need it. If you weren't brutally honest, I don't think that would encourage others to provide their own assistance or prompt action. And I am so heartbroken over Sonny & Deacon and am praying that you get some responses from someone who is able to foster these poor guys. I can tell they have a lot of love to offer. Please keep us updated on these boys and their status. They are in my prayers

Thank you Mary. They are so sweet. Deacon's poor head is completely swollen today. We do have an offer from someone who is willing to pay for boarding for them until we find a foster. I would MUCH prefer to get them into a foster home, but at least now we can get them off of the streets and treated and safe. Please keep your feelers out for a foster for them still. Thanks again Mary!
