Rescue a dog,  Foster a dog, Don't buy a dog from a Puppy Mill!!!
A rescue volunteer created this wonderful video about  how many dogs there are in shelters across the US, and encouraging people to foster or rescue a shelter dog to show how happy families become when these dogs  find a loving new home. 

NGRR encourages getting your new dog from a shelter, a breed rescue group (like NGRR) or a reputable breeder.  We ask you not to buy dogs in pet stores or from backyard brokers becasue there is a reasonable chance that they came from puppy mills, where the dogs are raised in abominal conditions at the lowest cost.   The retail pet stores and puppy brokers, then offer them to unsuspecting buyers who think they are getting a healthy, pure bred dog at a bargain price.   Buying from pet stores or backyard brokers only encourages the puppy mills to breed more dogs.

Hi everyone!  Otto here! 

     I thought it was time to give you an update since my arrival in the US about 6 weeks ago.

     I have a great foster family with 3 rescued golden siblings.  My foster mom says that Iím really, really smart compared to Mattie, Cubby, and Ollie, but having been here now for several weeks, I can tell you that bar is not very high! 

     Iíve learned that I love cantaloupe, cucumbers, green beans, and pretty much every other fruit and vegetable. I sit pretty when Iím offered food, and my mom says I have a really soft mouth.  Except when it comes to finding the toilet paper and dragging it all the way down the hall Ė all of a sudden my name changes from Otto to ďno, no, no!Ē  Itís sort of my familyís fault for leaving the darn door open.

     But I digressÖ

     I am over the moon for car rides, and as a daily reminder I take my leash and drop it at my foster dadís feet, then look at the garage door, pick up the leash, drop it, look at the door until he finally gets it.  It usually takes a few tries.   To tell you the truth, I understand where my foster 4-legged siblings get their smarts. 

     I also love to go out to the back yard and explore.  In fact, my foster mom calls me ďDora Explorer.Ē  Of course, thatís ridiculous because, well, first of all, Iím not a girl, but secondly, I fancy myself more along the lines of Lewis and Clark, or Marco Polo.

     The one thing that they discovered when I arrived was that my ears are in very bad shape.  They knew that right away because I was really stinky!  I went to the vet the next day and she said I had a bad infection in both ears, but one was severe enough that she couldnít see inside at all.  My ear canal is almost completely closed.  She also said Iím ďawesome and easy.Ē  I believe her because she has certificates that say that sheís an expert.  

     Now that my ears are a little more cleared up they can see that my left ear will probably be ok, but my right ear canal will need to be removed.  If it isnít removed, I will be in pain for the rest of my life because it will always be badly infected.  I wonít be able to hear out of that ear, but I canít hear very well now, anyway.  My mom thinks sometimes that I may have selective hearing.  She says that is a male trait.  I havenít figured out yet if thatís a compliment.

     Anyway, I would really appreciate it if you can help out a little with my surgery.  They think it will probably cost about $4000!  But I am worth every penny, I promise.   Iím cute, funny, sweet, charming, smart, and most of all, humble.   Can you please help me?

 Fosters are our most important people. Fosters take in surrendered dogs who need a safe home right away, they make sure vet visits and shots are done, and other wise care for the dog as if it were their own while in their custody.  Our fosters are compassionate, giving people, willing to invest their time and talent to help a dog in need.

If you are interested in becoming an NGRR foster, see our online foster application . One of our members will contact you and arrange an interview.
