How does Sue Sternberg with Rondout Valley Animals in Accord NY get her name plastered all over the net? From what I've read about her she's needle happy and likes to play God. I really do feel for the animals that end up in care.

HELP!!! This is urgent. Please read, if you have the room in your house and your heart to take in two, or one other
dog.
I have found two strays, adult. A 1 year old American Bulldog Plott Hound Mix, and a 2-3 year old Newfoundland Flat-Coated Retriever Mix. These dogs are affectionate, the bulldog is highly sociable and the Newfoundland mix is extremely playful. I haven't named them, and now they are left in a high-kill shelter in West Virginia. If you can take in one, or both of these dogs, please go to these
links:

The Newfoundland
Mix

The American Bulldog
mix.

The e-mail for adopting instructions is there, please help them, foster, adopt. I wish I could keep them, but space restrictions in my building ruin my chances. Please, help. These young dogs have little time, but so many years yet to live. Bless you

Our shelter dog has been wonderful. I can't imagine a dog working out better for our family. She is strictly an outside dog, but has protected my kids, chased unwanted persons out of our back yard, killed vermin (rats, moles, mice, an opossum, a snake (that was headed toward my daughter)), and played with my kids. She takes her self-assigned duties of guarding the family very seriously, standing guard at the back door near my computer even when I'm up late, and does not leave this post until she sees me head upstairs to bed. I've seen her several times doing a "perimeter check", jogging along the fenceline of our backyard all the way around the large yard. We have do idea what mix of breeds she is, but we could not have found a better dog for our family.


She was thrilled when we first released her into our nearly quarter acre back yard the first day, and ran around seemingly thrilled with the ability to simply run. She seems to understand that she was rescued (she was several days late for extermination when we found her at the shelter, but had been held over for one more weekend in hopes she would be adopted) and has spent her years with us returning the favor with devotion. We couldn't be more
grateful!

When the time comes that she can no longer be with us, we'll be back at the shelter for our next pal.

I am a dog trainer and I think shelter dogs are more eager to please and willing to learn. They love that you take the time to work with them when no one cared before!

I have two shelter dogs...pitbulls both...Wonderful dogs and so appreciative of their change in their lives! They truly love me like no other dogs.They have learned manners and one has done agility classes! This winter both will attend agility classes to show what wonderful dogs these dogs are that have been thrown away by society! Go check out your local pound or shelter, many fine dogs await you!
