#StatusChange

Whether they go from the euthanasia list to rescued to adopted or stray to rescued to sanctuary, this is the best part of what what we do. Take a look of some of our many Status Changes.

Rosalie

Twihards Unite!

We were contacted by a local lady who had two beagle mix pups she needed help rehoming or she would have to take them to our high kill shelter. We took them in and through networking we were able to find a local foster. This was our first foster and she was amazing!! She ended up foster failing Rosie. We were devastated when she told us she was moving back to India, but we were also excited for her and Rosie;s new adventures to come! We keep in contact with her and they are doing great! We were also able to connect her with another rescue friend of ours who also moved to India shortly after her - the CWP has no boundaries :)

Alice

Twihards Unite!

Alice was one of two beagle mix pups we were asked to assist in rehoming. We took them in to stop them from ending up in our local kill shelter. We got them into a great foster home and Alice was adopted soon after her vetting was complete. She went to live on some land with a family who had lost their older dog. Alice and her sister Rosalie were two of our quickest adoptions because their personalities were just darling!! 

Chiquita

Chi-chi

Chiquita was our first official adoption. She was found wandering alongside a busy highway and her owners were never located. After a quick trip to the vet for vaccinations and a spay, she was adopted by a loving family who was looking for a dog that their daughter could grow up with.

Olive

Olly, Olly Oxen Free!

Olive came to our rescue when a neighbor found her wandering in the field all alone. Mom was nowhere to be found and no one claimed her when we attempted to locate an owner. She was so little I just wanted to pop her into a martini and eat her up! Once she was old enough to get her vaccinations and "become a new woman," she was adopted by a great family with plenty of room to run and play.

Barracuda

Cuda Booda

Barracuda was found along with her litter mates on the property of one of our longtime followers. She was able to successfully find homes for everyone except poor little Cuda (we called her this because she really liked shiny things).

After getting her initial vetting complete, we were able to find a great forever home Fiona (her new name) where she has a couple of furry family members of her own to cause trouble with.

Chibs

No nickname - he's a Pup of Anarchy :)

Chibs was one of four beautiful heeler mix pups we intercepted on their way into our high kill shelter. They were going to be surrendered due to lack of funds. Shelters are no place for puppies as parvo and distemper run rampant and lead to agonizing deaths. We decided on calling them the Sons of Anarchy pups! They were rowdy and fun, but definitely ruled the puppy pen. Chibs was adopted by great family as a future therapy dog for their son once his vetting was complete.

Gemma

No nickname - she's a Pup of Anarchy :)

Gemma was one of four beautiful heeler mix pups we intercepted on their way into our high kill shelter. They were going to be surrendered due to lack of funds. Shelters are no place for puppies as parvo and distemper run rampant and lead to agonizing deaths. We decided on calling them the Sons of Anarchy pups! They were rowdy and fun, but definitely ruled the puppy pen. She was  fully vetted and adopted by a nice family that included a new fur sibling.

Nanook

Nooky-nook

We got the call about Nanook from a follower of ours. They said a neighbor had shot a dog in his back because he was a stray or was left behind when his owners moved (stray dogs in the country usually end up being target practice). I immediately called our vet who instructed me to get video of him and bring him straight into the clinic - he was going to be her first Vet Ranch dog. Being the first, we didn't really know how it worked, so he never had an official video made. Regardless, all of his care was covered! The bullet went straight into his back and traveled about a foot up and along his spine, missing the spine by just millimeters. The vet was able to pull all the bullet fragments out and Nooky made a full and fast recovery. He was such a fun dog! He found a wonderful home with a fur sibling once all of his vetting was complete.

Juggernaut

a.k.a. Jugs, a.k.a. The Jug Man

Juggernaut was one of four pups who were the first pups EVER to be born here at the rescue. Their mom, Rogue was left tied to a tree on our property in the freezing cold just four days prior to giving birth. Dan found her on his early morning rounds and took her to our vet who did x-rays and told us just how many pups were coming. We built her a whelping box and put her on puppy watch. Four days later we had the X-Men puppies!!! These were some of the funniest puppies we've ever had. Jug Man in particular used to growl at us in his sleep if we touched him. Special boys and such funny memories. Check out a picture of Dan holding all four in his bio pic!! He found a wonderful home after his vetting was complete. Jugs, now Jax, gets to see his brother Logan all the time, as they were adopted to relatives in the same family - how cool is that?!

Opie

no nickname, he's a pup of anarchy

Opie was one of four beautiful heeler mix pups we intercepted on their way into our high kill shelter. They were going to be surrendered due to lack of funds. Shelters are no place for puppies as parvo and distemper run rampant and lead to agonizing deaths. We decided on calling them the Sons of Anarchy pups! They were rowdy and fun, but definitly ruled the puppy pen. Opie found a great home once his vetting was complete.

Logan

Add some more info about this item...

Logan was one of four pups who were the first pups EVER to be born here at the rescue. Their mom, Rogue was left tied to a tree on our property in the freezing cold just four days prior to giving birth. Dan found her on his early morning rounds and took her to our vet who did xrays and told us just how many pups were coming. We built her a welping box and put her on puppy watch. Four days later we had the X-Men puppies!!! These were some of the funniest puppies we've ever had. Logan was the biggest of the four and also the sweetest. Special boys and such funny memories. Check out a picture of Dan holding all four in his bio pics!! Logan has a wonderful home with a family who also is related to Jug mans people.

Basil

Basie

The "Spice" puppies! We got a call from a concerned citizen that they found THREE big puppies crammed into a small crate in a field. When we got them they were stained from sitting crammed in their own urine and their legs were smooshed which made them walk funny. We determined they were great dane/catahoula mixes, and Basil was the biggest. After fully vetting them and giving them the care and space they needed to thrive, their legs were working normally and they found amazing homes! Basil is now Bounty:)

Poppy

The Spice Pups

The "Spice" puppies! We got a call from a concerned citizen that they found THREE big puppies crammed into a small crate in a field. When we got them they were stained from sitting crammed in their own urine and their legs were smushed which made them walk funny. After fully vetting them and giving them the care and space they needed to thrive, their legs were working normally and they found amazing homes! Poppy is now Abbey:)

Mars

Mars attacks

The "planet" pups! Mars was one of three mastiff mix pups that a technician at our vets office needed help with. He found them but was unable to care for them, so he called us. These pups were pre adopted before their vetting was even complete. Once their vetting was complete they went to their forever families.

Mae

No nickname needed!

This dog has my heart.... and my middle name ;). Got a call from our vet after hours that she had a three week old pit puppy with a smashed jaw from the mom dog. The people left the puppies with the mom while they fed mom and she attacked little Mae - backyard breeders at their finest. Our vet was going to make Mae a Vet Ranch dog, but needed a rescue before she could do anything. We said yes even though we weren't sure would make it out of the clinic.

 

Mae needed two surgeons to work on her tiny fragile body and even a custom brace and feeding tube for her recovery. We visited her almost everyday until she was ready to come to headquarters. She was a spunky little thing - sometimes it was like she was possessed!! She was absolutely hilarious! Her Vet Ranch video hit over a million views in just a week's time and her story was picked up by all sorts of major news outlets - she was our first little celebrity pup.

As if she hadn't been through enough, Mae contracted parvo after making it out of the clinic. We were devastated!! She already had an approved adopter waiting for her in Alabama. We had to break the news to her and it wasn't  a good time for any of us. Both Mae and our vet refused to give up and she was able to pull through! Little Mae was a fighter and was back with us in 5 days, but...

 

We were getting her all ready for her ride to her new home when we noticed her limping on one leg. Off to the vet we went. We found out a growth plate in her back leg had shifted and was causing swelling and pain. She just needed a splint for about a week to let it settle in. FINALLY Mae was healed and ready to meet her new family!! We have become very close with Mae's adopters! They are like family to us and we keep in constant contact with them.

Venus

Little Goddess, Vi-Vi

The "planet" pups! Venus was one of three mastiff mix pups that a technician at our vets office needed help with. He found them but was unable to care for them, so he called us. These pups were pre adopted before their vetting was even complete. Once their vetting was complete they went to their forever families.

Jupiter

Joopie

The "planet" pups! Jupiter was one of three mastiff mix pups that a technician at our vets office needed help with. He found them but was unable to care for them, so he called us. Jupiter was white with a big orange ring around his eye. These pups were pre adopted before their vetting was even complete. Once their vetting was complete they went to their forever families.

Ron

Ronie boy

The "Potter" pups!!! This was a particularly sad litter for us. We got a call from our vet that there was a mama pit mix with 9 babies at our local high kill shelter. she had someone to take the mom, but needed help with the pups. We were hesitant because our shelter is known for parvo outbreaks and vetting 9 pups for that would be very expensive. We agreed she would keep them at the clinic for 7 days to check for symptoms and then we would pick them up. The clinic got super busy and we needed to pick them up on day 3. As soon as we got them home and took a video, we noticed one was acting shy. That night the first pup fell ill, parvo positive. over the next couple of days 6 more fell ill and were passing away despite our best efforts to treat them. We went into complete sanitize mode and we were able to keep three of the nine pups from ever getting sick. These were the magical potter pups. All three were fully vetted and went to great homes, one of which was us! We foster failed! Ron was our first pup adopted at a Petco event, so that's really cool.

Harry

The Boy Wizard

The "Potter" pups!!! This was a particularly sad litter for us. We got a call from our vet that there was a mama pit mix with 9 babies at our local high kill shelter. she had someone to take the mom, but needed help with the pups. We were hesitant because our shelter is known for parvo outbreaks and vetting 9 pups for that would be very expensive.

All three were fully vetted and went to great homes, one of which was us! We foster failed! Ron was our first pup adopted at a Petco event, so that's really.

Kristy

Krusty Kristy

Kristi was yet another collaboration we did with Vet Ranch. She had severe mange with a secondary skin infection. She was a lengthy transformation and with that info we were asked to bring her to our doggie daycare to get some socialization. We then took her in under our rescue and started the hunt for the perfect home. Being a VR dog, she got applicants from all over the place. Part of our due diligence is making sure these animals go to the right home, not just the first one. Kristi was adopted by a very sweet family in Oregon. We had arranged her transport through operation roger, a trucking service where drivers offer to share a cab with the pup and then hit some bumps in the road. With a LOT of patience and understanding we got Kristi to her new family. We still keep in contact with her family and get updates.  She is still giving the family cat grief.....

Sansa

Sansie Soonsie

The Game of Thrones pups!!

 

Sansa was one of  4 four week old pups surrendered to us at an event .They were on the brink of death and had to be rushed to our vet ASAP! They were severely malnourished, dehydrated, riddled with worms and just lifeless. We didn't think they were going to survive, but they did!  Once they were old enough and finished with their vetting, they all found great homes. Sansa was our waterdog who always made us laugh in the kiddie pool. She is living the life as a family pet with a local family.

John Snow

Johnny Boy

The Game of Thrones pups!!

 

John was one of  4 four week old pups surrendered to us at an event .They were on the brink of death and had to be rushed to our vet ASAP! They were severely malnourished, dehydrated, riddled with worms and just lifeless. We didn't think they were going to survive, but they did! 

Many people don't know that we also run a sanctuary with goats, donkeys, chickens, outdoor kitties, and peacocks and we have had issues with coyotes. Being lovers of ALL animals, we did not want to set traps or have someone hunt the coyotes because they have a right to live too...we just want them to stay on "their side of the street." John and his sister Arya snuck out of fence one day when we were feeding everyone and they were so mellow with every animal. They never strayed from the main animal area, bark when someone pulls into the driveway, and keep a close eye on everyone while they sleep. Needless to say, they became our official Livestock Guard Dogs (LGDs) and we were able to give them a loving home while solving our coyote issue.

Arya

Charmander

The Game of Thrones pups!!

 

Arya was one of  4 four week old pups surrendered to us at an event .They were on the brink of death and had to be rushed to our vet ASAP! They were severely malnourished, dehydrated, riddled with worms and just lifeless. We didn't think they were going to survive, but they did!

They never strayed from the main animal area, bark when someone pulls into the driveway, and keep a close eye on everyone while they sleep. Needless to say, they became our official Livestock Guard Dogs (LGDs) and we were able to give them a loving home while solving our coyote issue.

Rogue

Booby Milk

While doing his morning rounds, Dan found Rogue found rogue tied to our weeping willow a mere 4 days before giving birth. Having never dealt with a new mom before, we immediately had to build a whelping box because those puppies were on their way. Rogue was a little wild, but extremely friendly. She gave birth to the X-Men pups - the first pups ever born at the CWP - a couple days after Valentine's Day.

Once the puppies were weened, it was time to get Rogue ready for her forever home. She was an extremely sweet dog, but did NOT know how to be a companion animal. She ripped through a couple of crates, ate walls (literally), and did not respect the fence whatsoever. She needed complete training - housetraining, crate training, and basic obedience training.

We were able to fully transform this girl into a loving family dog complete with a full set of manners. With the help from another adopter, we were able to place her into a great home where she would never be abandoned again.

Napoleon

Toli toes, Batoli, poli, toli

Oh Napoleon...

 

This boy was technically an X-men pup; however, he was the runt AND born with Swimmer's Legs so we thought it not appropriate to call him Professor X. He was strong, but tiny (hence, Napoleon.) He could not use his back legs, he just dragged them splayed out all day. We started doing physical therapy on him and hydrotherapy and it worked - he regained use of those lanky legs. We were doing our normal routine vetting when the vet heard a slight heart murmur and instructed us to watch it.

 

At his next appointment, it was made clear that he suffered from a heart deformity called Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA). We had no clue what that was, but we fully understood the look our vet gave us - this wasn't going to be good news. Without a very expensive (~$5,000) surgery, he wouldn't make it to his 1st birthday. After a quick check of the Care Credit account, she got on the phone with Texas A&M University and got him an appointment with their cardiac team.

 

Dan made the first 8-hour round trip to College Station for the initial evaluation and to get the low-down on the procedure. The next trip required a weekend stay, so Joanna and a friend went and stayed in a hotel during the procedure just in case something went south. He had some complications afterwards that resulted in an extra days stay and some take home special instructions.

 

We got him back to HQ and he had to be on 3 months of kennel rest - outside for short walks, bathroom breaks, and that was it. We had to periodically count his breaths and report any issues. We also had diuretics on hand in case of fluid build up around his heart. Luckily, we did not have to use those.

 

During Napoleon's kennel confinement, we felt bad and started to give him toys for entertainment - bad idea. He ended up swallowing a whole Kong toy and we did not know until 3 days later when he refused food and started drooling. We rushed him to our local vet where they discovered he had a bowel intussusception and needed emergency surgery. We were all very nervous because of his heart. My vet looked at me and said he had never operated on a dog post-PDA surgery before because nobody usually pays to have that surgery. During the surgery, the vet had to remove roughly 9 inches of bowel that had rotted, but our boy pulled through again - but now we were playing the game of "watching for infection" (this kind of bowel surgery can go south so quickly if the bowel ruptures and they become septic). Once again, no news was good news.

After all he had been through and the potential for PDA to rear its ugly head somewhere down the road, we decided to make Napoleon a therapy dog and take him to hospitals so he can bring smiles to peoples faces as he does ours. We have already begun his initial training and look forward to getting him all certified and on the road to creating smiles!

Jet

Jet was one of five puppies in need of rescue after their mother was hit by a car and killed. Being part Mastiff, Jet and his siblings were adopted rather quickly. The pups spent most of their time at a foster home so we did not get to know them all as much as we would have liked, but they definitely had some fun here when they spent the night at HQ before their spay/neuter.

Jet, now known as Milkdud, is currently undergoing training to be a service dog for disabled veterans.

Bear

Carebear Stare!

​Bear was one of five puppies in need of rescue after their mother was hit by a car and killed. Being part Mastiff, Bear and his siblings were adopted rather quickly. The pups spent most of their time at a foster home so we did not get to know them all as much as we would have liked, but they definitely had some fun here when they spent the night at HQ before their spay/neuter.

 

Bear currently has a couple of young two-legged companions to call siblings.

Minx

​Minx was one of five puppies in need of rescue after their mother was hit by a car and killed. Being part Mastiff, Minx and her siblings were adopted rather quickly.

Minx, now known as Boudreaux, is currently living it up on the lake and running the show.

Rocco

​Rocco was one of five puppies in need of rescue after their mother was hit by a car and killed. Being part Mastiff, Rocco and his siblings were adopted rather quickly. The pups spent most of their time at a foster home so we did not get to know them all as much as we would have liked, but they definitely had some fun here when they spent the night at HQ before their spay/neuter.

Rocco, now known as Roscoe, stayed relatively local and is doing his best to fill a gap left by his new family's old pup.

Sandy

​Sandy was one of five puppies in need of rescue after their mother was hit by a car and killed. Being part Mastiff, Sandy and her siblings were adopted rather quickly. The pups spent most of their time at a foster home so we did not get to know them all as much as we would have liked, but they definitely had some fun here when they spent the night at HQ before their spay/neuter.

Sandy, now known as Maya, was the runt of the litter and we may or may not have convinced a good friend of ours to adopt her. She is living it up on the farm with all sorts of critters.

Piper

Piper Pooper

​Piper was one of five puppies in need of rescue after their mother was hit by a car and killed. Being part Mastiff, Piper and his siblings were adopted rather quickly. The pups spent most of their time at a foster home so we did not get to know them all as much as we would have liked, but they definitely had some fun here when they spent the night at HQ before their spay/neuter.

Piper, now known as Jake (after Jake from State Farm), actually lives next door to his brother Roscoe and is a frequent guest of ours for daycare and boarding.

Prue

The Power of 3 Will Set You Free

The Charmed Ones were pulled from Fort Worth Animal Shelter because they were in danger of euthanasia due to ringworm and upper respiratory problems (yes, those are relatively minor issues, but this particular shelter pretty much operates at full capacity and could not run the risk of an infection spreading).

After a couple of baths with that nasty shampoo that treats ringworm and getting the respiratory infection cleared out, they were ready for their forever homes!

Prue went first because...well, just look at her...and she is currently living the dream as the only pup in the house.

Koa

Koa was adopted from our local kill shelter by a friend of ours. She wasn't sure if she was going to make him a forever pet or find him a loving home. She saved him because he was slated to be euthanized due to an upper respiratory infection. She loved Koa very much and, for that reason, she decided her lifestyle just wasn't what he needed. She reached out to us for help in finding him a new family. This was a particularly difficult search, as we knew it was really hard for her.

 

After months of weeding through tons of applications, tons of phone calls, and tons of obstacles, we found the perfect fit for Koa. We did our normal process and handed him over to a wonderful family with all the time and energy to suite his needs. 

Polo

Polo was our first ever bait dog and that is not necessarily something to be proud of. We pulled him from the Fort Worth shelter because he was in dire need of help. He was covered in old and new bite wounds on every inch of his body and some of the older wounds had abscessed. We guess he didn't perform as well as the cruel humans wanted, so they tried to dispose of him by any means other than a humane one.

 

They attempted to shoot him in the head and when that didn't work, proceeded to hacking him in the skull with some sort of machete or hatchet. He had a crushed skull and went right into surgery.

 

It was discovered that he had a bloodborne disease that is common among fighting dogs - babesia. Not only is this rare, but the medication was very expensive and very hard to find. We got lucky with our vet who may or may not have used a connection to get the necessary medication.

 

Polo had a long and very hard recovery that was filled with pain. Even after a successful surgery, we were not even sure he was going to keep his sight because of the head trauma.

 

Once the swelling went down and all the drain tubes came out, there was the most loving dog you would ever meet. A dog we were sure would have pure hatred for humans, but found it in his heart to show us the compassion that others did not. That is one reason we truly love the bully breeds here at The CWP - they continue to show us just how resilient they are and how much they can overcome. Despite society letting these dogs down day after day, they bounce back and show us there is hope.

 

Humans will always be the problem, but we can also be the solution.

After a couple of baths with that nasty shampoo that treats ringworm and getting the respiratory infection cleared out, they were ready for their forever homes! The power of three shall set them free ;)

Phoebe was the last to go, but it worked out for the best because she ended up in a loving home with a new two-legged sister.

Aslan

Azizi Aziz!

There is one particular road in our town that just so happens to usually have stray dogs on it. This particular road just so happens to be one of the shortcuts to get from our HQ to the market, feed store, home improvement stores, etc.

One day, Dan spotted Aslan crossing back and forth and found himself asking the question we always ask ourselves in this scenario - Do I stop? Do I stop? Do I stop? For us, the question is more rhetorical than anything - of course Dan stopped.

It took some back and forth to get Azzy in the car, but he was able to do it and immediately took him to the vet to get him scanned for a microchip. No luck on the microchip or any of the flyers we posted around town. From there, it was the usual - neuter, vaccinations, and microchip.

We are almost positive that he is related to another stray we came across when we first moved here, but he was adopted before we could test our theory. He had a TON of applications and ended up getting placed in the best possible scenario - the only dog where his luscious mane would be combed daily. 

Hermie

The Xmas Pups

Holly and Kringle were found roaming the streets together after they had "done the deed" and they were picked up by animal control. We were contacted by Vet Ranch to assist with getting the entire family rescued, vetted, and adopted.

Holly ended up having five little ones and Hermie got adopted by a loving family who wanted to add a four-legged member to the mix.

Caraway

The Spice Pups

​The "Spice" puppies! We got a call from a concerned citizen that they found THREE big puppies crammed into a small crate in a field. When we got them they were stained from sitting crammed in their own urine and their legs were smooshed which made them walk funny. We determined they were Great Dane/Catahoula mixes, and Caraway was the runt.

 

After fully vetting them and giving them the care and space they needed to thrive, their legs were working normally and they found amazing homes!

Kringle

Kringie Pringie

Kringle and his lover, Holly, were pickup up together by animal control after they had "done the deed." Kringle was suffering from pretty much every worm, lesions, and had an old hip fracture that had healed, but would frequently cause pain during walking.

His kids got adopted fairly quickly, but it took us a little bit to find the perfect fit for Kringle - he found a forever home with a little boy to call his best friend!

Ash, Onyx, and Shade

DC Universe

Ash, Onyx, and Shade were all rescued during one of our Kittie Capers at the local shelter. We have seem to have an issue with going to the shelter with the idea of pulling 1 or 2 kitties, but end up pulling 20 or more.

These 3 were all vetted and adopted by our neighbor who has a well established crew of indoor and outdoor kitties.

Nova

Supernova

After just having our first young one, we were kind of taking a break from the rescue world...of course, we could not stay away completely.

Our vet contacted us about 2 pups needing rescue from the local shelter and we were able to line up some foster homes once the initial vetting was done. As it happens so often, Nova's foster mom became a foster failure and she is living the good life as mama's little girl!
