Tarheel Old English Sheepdog Rescue would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support during the past year. Because of your generosity, we’ve been able to help dogs like Miffy & Magoo, who otherwise would not have made it.
Miffy was found, along with two male OES, after having been abandoned at an old farm house in South Carolina for about a month. She was taken to the local dog pound where she was found to be pregnant. Miffy gave birth to nine puppies, none of whom lived due to her having been starved and neglected during her pregnancy. A wonderful volunteer notified TOES of these three needy OES and we immediately began plans to rescue them. The volunteer kept one of the males and has been taking great care of him. TOES rescued both Miffy and the other male, Magoo.
Once Miffy was pronounced strong enough to endure the surgeries by the vet, she had a hernia repaired, had a tumor mass removed and was spayed. She was treated for ringworms, hookworms and tapeworms and ear infections.
Magoo was heartworm positive. His heart was so enlarged that the vet wasn’t sure if he’d make it. But, after two HW treatments, he rallied with the typical sheepie spirit and regained his health. He was also treated for ringworm, hookworm and tapeworms and a massive ear infection and he was neutered.
Both of these babies were fostered by our TOES treasurer, Alison. They were underweight and malnourished and in serious need of TLC. They received all the love, food and attention that they so desperately needed in her home. Finally, after about two months, they were healthy enough to move into their new forever homes.
Miffy was adopted by Steven & Michael and is now living the high life in Charleston, South Carolina, along with her OES fur-sister Savannah.
Magoo was adopted by the Ertzbergers and is soaking up all their love & attention as an only dog. Photos here: http://www.tarheeloesrescue.org./dogbro ... er=adopted
We’d like to express our deepest gratitude to all of you who have opened your hearts & homes to rescue Old English Sheepdogs and to those of you who have financially supported us. Without you, our work would not be possible.
If you’d like to help us continue our efforts, please take a moment to visit our Christmas Tree at www.tarheeloesrescue.org. One hundred percent of your tax deductible donation will be used for the care and well being of Old English Sheepdogs in rescue and foster care.
We wish you the happiest of Holidays and Sheepie Hugs!! :D

Every sheepie Christmas tree needs something from a cat, so I purchased an ornament in memory of my beloved Himalayan, Bonkers, who crossed the rainbow bridge this summer. Good luck with the fundraising!
