Fundraising for Roman The Great Dane

Roman, a handsome 2 year old Great Dane came into rescue and his foster mom, Brit, immediately noticed something was not right with his gait.

We suspect he has Wobblers but to diagnosis and treat can cost over $6000. Brit has taken it upon herself to raise this money and so far as raised the $1600 it will take for the diagnostic testing.

Please read this article written on Roman in the local Lincoln, NE newspaper.

Fuzzy Update

Fuzzy is an adorable 4 month old Leonberger Mix. She fractured her tibia/fibula and her current guardians were unable to afford the medical care she required so she was transferred to BDHPI. We took her to the wonderful Dr. Dave Matthiesen who performed surgery to repair the broken bones on December 19th, 2011. He put a plate in with 6 screws and her prognosis is good to excellent! She was sent home on antibiotics for 7-8 days and pain meds for 5-7 days. Her sutures need to be removed in 2 weeks. In 5-6 weeks we'll do radiographs to assess fracture healing and implant status. She has to be in a bandage for 2.5-3 weeks post op with no running or jumping for 5 weeks. Fuzzy will require rehab to help her learn to use her leg again and build up proper muscle after not using for so long but she'll be running and playing like any normal happy puppy in no time! Many thanks to her wonderful fosters, Diana and Michael, for nursing her through her recovery!

If you would like to donate to Fuzzy's medical fund please go to

Special Needs Stella find a home!

When you do rescue long enough, you can look at a dog and immediately guess what their "popularity" will be like with potential adopters. When I saw poor Stella, I was immediately worried she would spend a lot of time in rescue. Between her black color, older age and leg issues I worried some would pass her over and not really take a chance on her.

Well, I am here to say I was wrong! I was overjoyed when I heard that BDHPI Volunteer Alissa and her boyfriend Doug were "in the market" for a special needs Dane and Stella turned out to be exactly what they were looking for.

Alissa had even purchased Stella a beautiful new collar in hopes the adoption would work out.

Thanks to Alissa and Doug for all that you do for BDHPI! We are glad you now have a gentle giant of your own!
