I think everyone will remember Davey. He was picked up as a stray in the Houston, Texas area and taken to a local shelter last summer (2016). He sat in his concrete kennel for over a week with a broken leg. When Russell Rescue learned of his situation, Davey only had a few hours left before being euthanized. We quickly made arrangements to get him out of the shelter and to his foster mom. Davey went to the vet ASAP. He ended up needing surgery to fix his leg. Davey got his surgery and spent many weeks doing his exercises and stretches while his little leg healed. He had an awesome foster mom who took great care of him! Davey found his forever family not long ago and he is living the life in Colorado! He is now called Vinny. He gets to go on walks, and play with his best buddy. As you can see in the video, his leg has healed! Happy Tails Vinny! We couldn’t be happier for you!
Update from Romeo’s foster mom:
Romeo had a checkup at the vet. I was able to get a couple of photos. You can see the puncture wound in his upper thigh. There is a corresponding puncture on the other side. The redness and swelling are going down, which is great news! Romeo got to spend a little time in the yard, which he loved! You can see from the photos that the puncture wounds are starting to heal. Romeo is feeling almost frisky again and is officially the Backyard Jungle King! He is still limping, and I have to be very careful when I pick him up, as his torso is still very bruised and sore. He is such a little piglet. He never loses his appetite! He says to tell you thank you for your generous donations!
Update from Romeo’s foster mom
Romeo was a good boy at the vet. They got him all stitched up. He has several puncture wounds and the cut on his belly that all need time to heal. He is having a tough time walking as he is pretty stiff and sore. He is on good meds and I am going to be keeping him quiet and still for a while. He is spending quiet time in the bathroom, which he hates! But Romeo is glad to be home! Romeo says thank you for your help!

This little senior guy is Romeo and he was found wandering around all alone. His finder, a very kind man, took Romeo to a local vet to have him scanned for a microchip. Romeo did have a microchip and his owner was contacted. When contacted, he said he didn’t want Romeo anymore because he was old. The kind man who found Romeo took him home with him. He contacted Russell Rescue for help and when a foster home opened up, Romeo became one of us. He has been in a foster home for a few months now.
Recently, Romeo got into a fight with another dog in his foster home and ended up getting bit in multiple places. Romeo needs your help. Can you help us pay for the medical attention Romeo needs? As you can see from the photo below, he has a horrific cut on his tummy.

We are expecting the vet bill to be around $1,000. Please help us help Romeo!

The Texas Two-Step JRTCA trial was held the second weekend in March of this year. Russell Rescue Texas had a large table full of wonderful prizes that we raffled off to benefit our rescue efforts. It was absolutely wonderful to see old friends again and make new ones. Quite a few of our rescue volunteers were there to help. Robyn was in charge but she had Nancy, Patty, Shelly, Melissa, Sandra, and Doreen there to help.
We made a lot of money which all goes to help the rescue dogs.
