Panzer - Male, Golden
In over 35 years, AHGRRS has rarely seen a dog in worse shape than Panzer. We were horrified by his condition when he arrived at Almost Heaven. It was beyond anything most people will ever witness in their lifetime.
Panzer arrived at Almost Heaven infested with fleas and parasites with multiple raw and infected hairless areas on his poor body. One of his paws was so badly infected, swollen, and painful, we remain fearful our only future option may require amputating his entire leg to save his life. Both of his ears showed evidence of long term infections with a tumor on a small stalk growing out of one ear and both canals almost completely closed. Our veterinarians have been working very hard to get Panzer's infections under control. Panzer has been hospitalized twice to receive IV antibiotics and various prescribed medications.
Panzer also began showing issues with his right rear hock. He has recovered some but continues high stepping in his right rear end. This is extremely bad news as it will negate amputating his badly infected front leg - should it come to that. We remain cautiously optimistic as he seems to still be in good spirits and eating very well. He loves treats, and found a ball out in the yard that he really enjoys. He is not well enough for a roaring game of fetch, but he does like to carry the ball around.
Sponsors and donations towards Panzer's mounting medical expenses and care are always greatly appreciated. Donations can be made via PayPal using the Donate button below or by mail: AHGGRS at P.O. Box 648, Capon Bridge, WV 26711
And this is what Queenie thinks of the hat
Queenie - Female, Golden
Note: Queenie is so badly damaged by her prior "caretakers" that AHGRRS has deemed her unsafe for adoption; therefore she will remain here at the sancutury for the duration of her life.
5 - 6 year old Queenie came to us after she was
found lying next to the road, emaciated at 27 pounds.
We will probably never know the real story of how
Queenie found herself in such dire circumstances
and physical condition but, it has left emotional
scars that may never completely heal. Queenie is
a very dominant girl - she can be stubborn and single
minded. She gets along best with neutered male dogs
and she seems to like cats - actually, she just
needs a home with an experienced adopter. Someone
who can give her the space and guidance to become
accustomed to her new home and people. Once Queenie
knows and trusts people, she is a very loving, sweet
girl, but it will not be "love at first sight" for
her. We feel she would do best in a quiet adult
home with a fenced yard - although Queenie does
LOVE to go for walks on leash. She is crate trained,
housebroken, spayed, vaccinated, and heartworm negative
and on preventative.
would love to see Queenie find her furever family
and home where she will continue to blossom and
receive the love and patience she needs and deserves.

Teddy Bear - Male, Collie/Golden
Retriever/Great Pyrenees Mix
- 10 year old Panda and Teddy came to us after their
owner passed away. They were very unsocial, and
it took us a long time to gain their trust. Part
of their behavior is genetic and part of it was
from living an isolated life on a farm. Even now
- years later - they are not warm fuzzy dogs, though
they do like attention, and LOVE being inside snuggled
on their dog beds. We would love to see these two
Seniors adopted together, they are lifelong friends
(littermates), and are very bonded and dependent
on each other (especially Panda).
and Panda are available for adoption to a special
home with understanding, patient, special people.
If you are interested in offering them a furever
home, please submit an application. Click → HERE
and donations towards their care are always greatly
appreciated. Donations can be made via PayPal using
