Mended Mutts

All of the dogs that come to Canine Lifeline are very dear to us but we have a special fondness for those we affectionately call our “mended mutts”. These are dogs who come to us with medical issues that make their chances of adoption at a shelter or dog pound very slim. While their medical needs may differ: some have heartworms, others need surgery to repair broken bones or dislocated hips, while still others have painful skin conditions…they all share a spirit and will to live that make it a joy and privilege to help them. To see the sparkle in their eyes and spring in their step when they are on the mend is priceless! We can’t help them though without support from caring people like you. Please consider making a donation to help our very special “mended mutts” have a second chance at a happy life. If you would like information about the dogs shown below, just click on their picture. Thank you!

This sweet dog has no doubt had an awful time of it recently at the hands of a horrible person or people but he is now on the mend and ready to make a fresh start in a brand new home. All things considered, Echo was very ...

Update 2-14-14: Brownie collapsed and died this morning from a pulmonary embolism as a result of heartworm disease. He had immiticide injections on Jan 15-16 to kill the adult worms and had struggled to recover since then. He had good days and bad days but after a rough week, he just couldn’t fight any longer. Brownie was the most gentle, sweet, and loving 5 year-old Chocolate Lab. It's absolutely heartbreaking to watch a dog go through this when the disease is ...
