Helping death-row, abused, and neglected dogs find forever homes. We do not discriminate by breed, age or special needs. As long as we’re capable of helping out, we will never say no!
Poor Triton has had the roughest start, and he deserves nothing but love
for the rest of his life. He was born on the streets of Taiwan, and was
starving and alone. He was beaten horribly with a pipe, by an awful
person, when he was just trying to find some food to eat. His back was
terribly injured, and he was paralyzed and dying. Some wonderful angel
rescuers found him, and brought him back to health. He has been passed
around, and is now with his second foster home in the Bay Area (near
Berkeley). He will stay this foster mother, until we can find someone
who will love this boy as much as he deserves.
Triton (aka Treasure) is a male neutered Rottweiler, mixed with Formosan
Mountain Dog (Taiwan Dog). He is about 5 years old, and weighs just over
40 pounds. He is the most snuggly, cuddly, friendly, sweet boy, who is
eager to please and just wants to be loved. He is an amazing, resilient
guy – after all he’s been through, he warms right up to new people as
soon as he is properly introduced. He walks nicely on a leash, has a
good recall, gets along with other dogs, is respectful of cats, and
doesn’t chew up the house. He is easy to train, understands boundaries
and rules, and loves to play and be cuddled.
Triton has residual spinal damage from the beating. He can walk, run,
and play – we do 4-mile hikes, and he’s up and down the hills right next
to the other dogs! He has no pain sensation, and no feeling in his legs,
so his gait and balance is compromised. It doesn’t stop him, though! The
beating also left him with some lack of control of his bowels and
bladder. He is house-trained, and with access to a doggie door and
enough outside time, he does 95 – 99% of his potty outside. If his
bladder gets over-full, though, he will dribble. It is easy to express
his bladder, to keep it empty enough, and he is happy to wear a
doggie-diaper at night, or if he can’t get outside.
If you have extra time on your hand and would like to help please consider volunteering! Rescue groups need dedicated volunteers to help with events, fundraisers, home checks, transports, etc. All of these things help enable the rescue to expand their network and help more dogs in need.
