Meet Baxter

Recommended Posts

Right now we have two fosters, one is Baxter we picked him up this past Thursday. Baxter was attacked by another dog and because the family couldn't afford the vet bill, he was surrendered to a vet and the vet surrendered him to our rescue group. Baxter is only 1 years old, and when he was taken to the vet, the vet was "old school" and for some reason he actually stitched 3 shirt buttons to his eye lid (yes, you heard me correctly, no idea why) When we got him, he looked horrible and we knew it just didn't look right, the very next morning we took him to our vet and they removed the shirt buttons and put him on a different eye meds. We are hoping we can save his eye.

If you look where his eye brow is, you'll notice the bare skin, that's were the shirt buttons were attached.

First of all - huh02.gifI've never heard of any dog having buttons sewn onto their eyes...

Next, it really is so irresponsible for people to buy dogs when they can't look after them... rant.gif

 

You are so amazing to be fostering these sweet dogs and looking after them. I'm so glad that there are people like you in this world smile03.gif

Baxter is such a cutie!!

How could anyone hurt their pet??

I love my 4 year old Boxer like a baby and would happily take on anyone who tried to hurt him!!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
