Story
Lovable Lenny – this one year old, 6 lb bundle of love, fun and entertainment is a true gem of a guy.  He’s a Chorkie, mom is a Chihuahua and dad is a Yorkie.  Lenny is always  in a good mood, ready for the next adventure.  He is only ONE year old, tiny, happy go lucky and an ideal lap/cuddle boy. His owner became ill and could no longer care for this sweet little boy. He luckily landed with Critter Cavalry Rescue and a wonderful foster mom who took him in and has been getting him neutered and updated on all shots, Heartworm negative, dewormed and microchipped. The next step is to now find the perfect home that will love him forever so that he does not have to move around ever again.  He is very adaptable and can fit in with any environment and as they say, can hang with the best of them.  Fine with other dogs, cats and seems to be very easy going with children.  Make note that we would prefer older children due to Lenny’s delicate size.  He uses the puppy pad, but foster mom is working on housebreaking and a schedule he can rely on.  His former human was not physically able to walk him, so he is accustomed to puppy pads.  Lenny is adapting to all the new changes and living with a mom who is patient and showing him the rules and how to live a more active life with someone that is not handicapped and limited with taking him on walks or outside to the bathroom.  Lenny deserves a vibrant family and home that is active and ready to take him on adventures in life.  This little guy is smart and only wanting a stable life filled with love and the best of things that a young, small dog could expect.  If this is what you want to give Lenny then please email Critter Cavalry Rescue at ccrnewengland@gmail.com.  Lenny is ready NOW to make a change in his life that is good and secure PLEASE NOTE:  Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.  Further information about us is given on our Adopt-A-Pet site.  The adoption fees vary and will be provided as well as noted on the application you receive.  Contact us at 615-661-5333 or ccrnewengland@gmail.comMay 24, 2024, 9:18 am

Story
My name is Piper and I am the cutest little thing. I love everyone. I love to kiss and kiss and kiss. I love to be held. I am playful with people and learning to play with dog toys and other dogs. So far I get along with all dogs but get nervous a bit with large dogs. My rescue was told that I could not walk due to a bump on my back. I was found tied to a bench with a diaper on. After seeing my new vet and arriving at my new foster home, not only can I walk but I can run. I may have a wonky gait but I am getting stronger. Our vet said I most likely have a birth defect where my spine has a strange formation causing the lump on my back. I still need diapers because I cannot control my pee and poop. It just pushes out by itself. The good news is it comes out on its own. In spite of my special needs, I am happy and bouncy and oh so loving. If you can embrace my special needs and my awesome personality, I may be the dog for you. I would love a home with another same sized dog. I will need to have my diapers change but do well with that. I would love a fenced in yard so I know I am safe outside. I would love to go places with you. I ride well in the car. I am just perfect.

Story
Name: Bruno Gender: Male Age: 5 years Weight: 9 lbs. Adoption Fee: $350.00 Fostered in Indian Trail, North Carolina Email: yorkiemommync@yahoo.com 11/30/22 – Today we found out Bruno has an autoimmune disease called Pemphigus Erythematosus that is causing all his skin issues. His dermatologist is going to start him on high dose steroids for two weeks to try and get it in remission as quickly as possible so we can back down and get him ready to have his torn ACL repaired. He will also be going on a medication called Mycophenolate for the autoimmune disease, and that will likely be for the rest of his life to keep it in remission. He is still going to physical therapy weekly and is still not too thrilled with the hydro treadmill. He just does not want to use his back legs to walk while in it. Might just take more time and hopefully once we can get the torn ACL repaired it will get even better. Despite all he has going on, he is still so happy and loving! He gets to spend more time out of the crate now that he is six weeks post hip surgery. Thank you to everyone for their prayers and support for Bruno! 11/2/22 – Bruno had his hip surgery on 10/18. We have been doing his exercises at home, but unfortunately he is not using the leg like he should, so we will be starting with physical therapy on 11/4. We are hopeful this will help to get the leg moving the way it should and build up some more muscle as it feels like he has lost even more muscle mass in that leg. He still needs the ACL repair to happen, but the skin needs to be figured out first. Bruno has also seen the dermatologist and she initially thought his skin issues were from an antibiotic resistant staph infection, but he has had two negative cultures. She is now thinking it could possibly be an auto immune disease, even though she did not see the cells she usually sees when doing a skin scrape in the office. We are spraying him with a topical antibiotic/steroid spray and medicated baths every 3 days. We have a skin biopsy tentatively scheduled for 11/15. We need to get the infection cleared up more before doing a biopsy otherwise it could skew the results. Poor Bruno has so much going on, but even through all of it he is so happy and loving. He will just stare lovingly into your eyes and snuggle into you. 10/12/22 - Bruno went in yesterday and was neutered and had his dental done. After dental x-rays were done, it was found that he had major bone loss around several teeth and the start of bone loss around others. Given they were so bad, as we suspected, he had to have the remaining teeth he had removed. He is doing good with no teeth and ate some food last night and breakfast this morning. The dogtor said as he was under anesthesia and she wiggled a few of the teeth his blood pressure would go up, meaning she could tell they were painful to him. His mouth should feel so much better now. We also went to see the specialist last week as his leg has become worse being on crate rest. It was decided that he will go in on 10/18 for an FHO on his worst hip and if his skin is much better at that time she will also fix the torn ACL. He cannot have any infection for that repair, so we are crossing our fingers. If not, he will have to go in when his skin is cleared up and have the ACL repair. He has been battling the skin issues since December 2021 when his savior took him out of the bad situation. The dogtor suspects it is still flea dermatitis. His skin is better, but not good enough. The hip surgery is estimated to be around $2500 right now. Despite all his ailments he is still such a happy and loving little guy. 9/21/22 – Bruno is a happy go lucky little man that you can just see the smile on his face. He loves belly rubs, lots of affection, and loves to play with toys now that he knows how to. He did not have a great start to his life by living the first years of his life in a building with several other yorkies that were just given food and water a couple of times a day and not having all the love and attention they deserved. A wonderful lady went to help his original owner clean up all the dogs and convinced her to let her take two of the pups in December 2021. When his savior brought him home he had fleas, was not using his back leg, and had a bad rash. She worked very hard to make him feel better. Due to her own health, she unfortunately had to surrender him, which is how he came to YHR. We are still working on clearing up his rash, his bloodwork is slowly improving, but he has very bad teeth that need to be cleaned. He is scheduled for his dental and neuter on 10/12. We saw the specialist today regarding his limping and lameness in his left back leg. He does have bilateral hip arthritis, restricted mobility in both hips, but he also has a torn ACL in he left knee. He is going on crate rest for about 4 weeks to see if he can build scar tissue to naturally heal it and try to avoid surgery. If that does not work, then he will need surgery to repair it. Once we get that fixed, then we will see if his mobility gets better and if not, he may need surgery on the hip to give him mobility. With the issues with the back legs, he does put more pressure on his front legs and sometimes limps on the front legs, but x-rays show there are no issues with the front legs. Bruno really is just the happiest little guy we have seen in a while. He looks like he is smiling a lot of the time. He does great riding in the car and has been doing so in a doggy car seat. His crate rest will be in a stroller, which he does not mind either. He went for a stroll last weekend in the stroller and did great. Given he is older and was never neutered nor trained to go potty outside because he peed where he lived, he does mark a lot. That likely will not change given his age, so he may need to remain in a belly band, which he is great with too. He has lost some muscle mass in his backend, so the bellybands will slip off his hips, but suspenders have worked great to keep it in place. We are not sure about him likely to cuddle given the pain he is dealing with in his knee and hips, so hopefully when that all gets fixed we can see if he is a cuddle bug too.

Story
Name: Harper Age: 8 years Weight: 6 lbs. Fostered in Indian Trail, NC Adoption Fee: $250 1/3/2024 – Harper is doing great! Harper did have an MRI that identified she has a pocket of fluid pushing on her spinal cord. This pocket of fluid is right where her back humps up and is the cause to her occasional bowel incontinence. Being this pocket of fluid is pushing on the spinal cord, draining it is riskier than just leaving it alone. Her symptoms are not severe, so it is not worth the risk. She may develop urinary incontinence over time and her fecal incontinence may get worse, but other than that she is doing just fine. Her foster mom just keeps blankets where she sleeps so if she does go poo, the blanket can just be washed. She is not on any meds and we did try a round of steroids that did not change anything. Harper is a very loving little girl. She loves attention and to give kisses. She is good about laying on the couch or in a doggy bed during the day. She sleeps in a doggy bed on her foster mom’s bed and does great. She does not play with toys much. She does good in the car, but does shake when in the car. Her foster mom puts her in a car seat and she does good and lays down. She also does well in a crate if she needs to be put in one. 6/26/23 – Harper is a very sweet and loving little girl that we unfortunately do not know anything about her background. She does occasionally cower down, which could be fear or a something happened to her at some point. She has a cute little under bite and recently had a dental where she lost 9 teeth. She had teeth missing prior as well, but she does still have some teeth left. Harper does have a walk that is off, walks with a hump back, and occasionally has bowel incontinence, meaning she poos without knowing it and it usually ends up in her bed when she is sleeping. She is at the specialist today getting an MRI done so we can maybe figure out what is causing her problems and to see if we can fix it for her. We will post an update when we know more about what is going on for our sweet little Harper.
