McCoy – ADOPTED!!!!!

McCoy (now Hunter) was pulled from the shelter on 01/02/2017 in Salem Oregon – his case was heartbreaking.  Found as a stray wondering in the snow and icy weather, there was little doubt that he had been in a covered area, just without food.  His resilient soul and amazing rebound earned him our cover model for SWB’s calendar 2018 <3

With extreme happiness we bring you GREAT news!! Hunter is doing FABULOUS and with careful feeding and exercise as his muscles allow, he LOOKS MARVELOUS!!!!



SAFE!!!  Hunter (aka McCoy) was taken to his foster family last night.  Right after his freedom walk he was taken to the vet right.  Hunter is severely malnourished; truly, almost starved to death.  While it appears that Hunter has no medical issue for his current state, we are watching him closely.  He is nothing but skin and bones with a body score of 1 (scale 1 – 5).  A HUGE thank you to his loving foster parents for giving him a chance at life.  Stay tuned for updates.  We love you Hunter!!!



FOSTER FAMILY FOUND!!!!!!!  McCoy is scheduled to take his WALK of FREEDOM tomorrow from a shelter in Oregon and will be transported to his loving foster family’s home!!!

Please follow us for video of his walk and updates on him!! A HUGE thank you to all who helped in getting him SAFE!
