Fenton: three year old male shih tzu cross

We got a call from our good rescue friends at Furever Friends Rescue of WNY that they were bringing in over twenty dogs from puppy mills and could we take any?

The relationship we’ve built with this group in conjunction with the SPCA serving Erie County has lead to the rescue of many puppy mill animals and we were about to get a family.

Fenton is a three year old neutered male and we believe the son of Delana. Fenton is about the sweetest boy ever! We think he must have been the baby who had a few bigger older brothers.

Fenton is about twenty pounds and loves people. He’ll follow you everywhere and so desperately wants to be loved. He’s very people oriented and is the first to come to greet us with tail wagging.

Fenton is very submissive to both people and other dogs. He gets bullied by Bergen and Ruger (his biological brothers) and he submits immediately.

He’s a quiet boy who only wants love. We’d like to see Fenton to go to a home with another submissive dog or perhaps as a single dog as he loves his people.

It won’t take him long to be your shadow and your lap puppy. His hair grows and we haven’t found he sheds much, so he seems to be very shih tzu.

Please email an adoption application to from our documents page if you’re interested in this handsome fella!

Bergen: three year old male, 25 lbs, cross

We got a call from our good rescue friends at Furever Friends Rescue of WNY that they were bringing in over twenty dogs from puppy mills and could we take any?

The relationship we’ve built with this group in conjunction with the SPCA Serving Erie County has lead to the rescue of many puppy mill animals and we were about to get a family.

First came mama Delana and her daughter Allura, now we welcome Bergen, a three year old neutered male to our foster program.

Bergen is not as shy as his mother. He will play roughly with dogs who are submissive, but will not challenge another dog for top spot. He’s very handsome and was the first to come to staff for a hot dog treat.

He had kennel cough on arrival, but after treatment he’s recovered nicely. He’s reacted to leash training with grace and picked up on the idea in a short time.

He’ll still need some time to find his place, but gets attached to people and property quickly.

Bergen has a sweet face and we can’t believe he’s a shih tzu mix, but even our vet is a little puzzled as to the cross breeding of this twenty-five pound handsome fella.

Bergen would do well in a home with another dog. We haven’t tested his tolerance to cats. Small children might move too quickly for this fella.

A fenced yard would be ideal as well as a female dog to continue his education in “how to be a dog”.

If you are interested in fostering or adopting Bergen please send in an adoption application from our documents page.

ps… Bergen has a very “hound” sounding bark. lol

Delana: Seven year old shih tzu cross

We got a call from our good rescue friends at Furever Friends Rescue of WNY that they were bringing in over twenty dogs from puppy mills and could we take any?

The relationship we’ve built with this group in conjunction with the SPCA serving Erie County has lead to the rescue of many puppy mill animals and we were about to get a family.

First came mama Delana with her daughter Allura. Both females were horribly fearful, but have come leaps and bounds in a few short weeks.

The girls are lovely shih tzu / jack russell cross with minimal shedding, but they will always be shy. Allura is five and her mama Delana is seven.

Allura is getting one on one care in a foster home and is coming along well. Her mama Delana is doing well and excited to see people. She’s still unsure, but we’re hoping we can find a home that will be kind and patient.

Allura on alert

It’s believed that Delana had three more puppies that have entered BCFS foster home program. Check back to meet Delana’s three year old baby boys: Bergen, Ruger and Fenton.
