BRUNO - I am a special needs pup.
My name is Bruno and I am a 3 year old male, full breed Havanese who has Epilepsy. I don’t think my owners took very good care of me. I wasn’t given my medication on a daily basis the way I should have been , which meant that I would have seizures from time to time. They decided one day that they no longer had use for me and I guess they really didn’t want me as part of the family anymore. So, they took me to see the Vet. They wanted to euthanize me because they had no time to look for a proper home. Well, my Vet knew I was a great dog and wasn’t having any of that and called on Rescue who said they would find me a wonderful home where my new owners would love me and give me the proper care I need. It doesn’t really take much to care for a dog with Epilepsy.
I’ve lived with children all my life but that doesn’t mean that I need to be placed in a home with them. I don’t mind other small dogs or cats because I’m really a very friendly little guy who really gets along with everyone.
I love to play in the yard, something that I really never did in my last home. I love all the new smells of the outdoors and I sniff around, taking my time enjoying life now.
My Rescue Mom has fallen absolutely in love with me!! (I hear her saying this all the time…she makes me blush!) She thinks I’m comical, and we play a game of tag every now and then. I love when she can’t keep up and catch me! I so enjoy sleeping on a comfortable cozy bed when it’s time to settle in at night. I’d be happy to be on the couch next to you, or at your feet….Just as long as I’m loved. I have a lot of love to give and that’s the only thing I need in return.
I am Neutered and UTD on all of my vaccinations and am ready for my new home.
Please don’t let my Epilepsy stop me from finding my forever home and getting the love and care I so, so deserve. I am so worthy of it and I will be a wonderful companion to someone!
Rescue Group Info...
Orange County Barker's Rescue is a small non-profit organization made up of a group of volunteer dog lovers who primarily Rescue dogs from very High Kill Shelters in the southern part of the US. Once rescued our dogs are completely vetted and all medical needs are taken care of. They are spay/neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, are tested and treated for heart worm and all parasites. They are given heart worm and flea and tick preventative and are microchipped. They stay in a local foster until transported to us in New York. Once with us, we then get to know the dog and work with the individual needs of each dog. We teach them socialization, with both people and other dogs. We start them on basic training, as well as potty training. We keep our Rescue dogs with us until we feel they are really ready to leave and go on to their new life in their forever homes. We work very hard for our dogs, and love them as if they were our own.
Our Mission Is Simple
Rescue - Rehabilitate - Re-home
We don't discriminate against age, health or breed. We are a non-breed specific Rescue. We Rescue the small and the large, the sick and the aged. We love them all and they are all worthy of a second chance in life.
"We don't know the past chapters of their lives, they are lost and forgotten. From the time we take a dog into Rescue, we vow, that every chapter, until their final one, will only be happy ones." LHKane / Founder -OCBarker's Rescue
Adoption Events will be posted. We do have a small facility and you can make an appointment to come and meet some of our furry friends after an Adoption Application has been approved. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for an Addoption Application or call (845) 597-4043.
By adopting one of our dogs it gives us the opportunity to save another life!! Please think ADOPT, and don't SHOP!!
If you see a dog that you think might be a great match for you and your family, we first require that an Application for Adoption be filled out. We do check Vet references as well as personal ones. After you become an approved adopter you will receive either an email or a call from us to let you know. We do require a Home Visit. If you're not local to us, we work closely with other Rescue Groups and trusted volunteers who can do the home visit for us. There is no exception to the rule. Every one must have a home visit done before we place one of our dogs. We have a binding contract that must be signed. Our contract states that in the event you no longer can keep a dog or cat that has been adopted, for whatever the reason, they come back to us. Our contract also states that you are adopting a dog/cat and will keep them as an inside pet, will vet your dog/cat once a year, provide them with a good balanced diet and fresh water.......
All of our pets have been spay/neutered (unless they are too young) are UTD on all vaccinations, are on Heart Worm and Flea and Tick preventative and are microchipped. They are ready for adoption and have a clean bill of heath unless there is an issue with a special needs animal, and in that case you will know everything there is to know about them.
Our fees vary and range from $200 - $350
We are always busy, so please be patient. We WILL answer a call or an Email. Email seems to work better for us, so keep that in mind.
We are a small Rescue Org, located at the foothills of the Hudson Valley, in Orange County, NY. We have many dogs who are transported to their forever homes in the North East (by one of our transporters) and have placed dogs in homes as far as the Mid West. We do require a home visit by a reputable Rescue Org. in the event that a potential adopter is too far away from us to do it ourselves. We work closely with other Rescue Groups, so please don't let distance put you off if you really feel one of our dogs might be a great match for you and your family.
