Gigi Ray- Adopted
Gigi Ray is a very petite tri-colored french bulldog full of light and personality! She is fully deaf with mild cerebellum and vision impairment that gives her some unique dance moves but her special abilities do not slow or inhibit her from living a fully active and happy life. She does not take any medication for her conditions and we do not think they are progressive conditions. If anything, her vision and mobility has improved as she grows. In spite of her tiny size, this little lady can hold her own and loves to play with dogs of all sizes. She is the perfect combination of sweet and sassy. She has the spirit of the hummingbird. Gigi lives in Kansas City with her human parents and 3 dog sisters. She is part of the Kansas City Frenchie Club and loves stroller rides with her grammy.

Gone but Never Forgotten
Rainbow Bridge Angels
Sweet, sweet Lolly. The most gentle and soulful girl who was dealt a really difficult hand in terms of her start to life and medical challenges. Lolly had multifocal brain disease with an underdeveloped frontal lobe, cerebellum and middle cortex. The overall stunting of her brain development left Lolly with blindness, an inability process things and engage in life around her along with significant regression of her mobility. We chose to honor Lolly for what her journey was and not subject to her to an existance that we culd see and sense was not an enriching quality of life. She returned to her star body accompanied by Jaimie and her foster Stephanie in a beautiful life transition ceremony in the meditation gardens at the sanctuary where her spirit will always be present.
Polly Pocket joined our rescue and family from our rescue partners Nor Cal Bully Breed Rescue. Sweet Pockey had a difficult medical journey, starting with the cleft palate and hydrocephalus that we knew about. As she began to grow, her body began to shut down due to diabetes incipitus which caused her sodium levels to spike, seizures and eventual herniating of her brain. Polly was the sassiest little thing who made you work for her love making it all the mosre soecial when she would bless us with her cuddles and kisses. She loved sunbathing and talking smack to her food at meal times. She will always have a special place in our hearts and with her first foster mama Leslie.
Sweet Falkie was our first ever husky pup who we partnered with Luna Siberian Husky Rescue to care for. Falcor arrived with three broken legs and an incredibly rare condition known as Osteogenesis Imperfecta. His bones were brittle and he would have endured a life on breaks and discomfort. We gave him an incredible bucket list day filled with beach adventures, cheeseburgers and lots of love. He crossed the bridge peacefully in our meditation garden on 6/18/21.
Oliver was a 6 week old english bulldog baby with hydrocephalus. By the time he reached us he had already begun his final phase. We only got to love him for one night but are grateful he crossed over in our arms on 6/14/21, knowing he was loved.
Romeo was a 7 week old hydrocephalus warrior who was also vision impaired. He was a fluffy Lab Pitty mix with a heart of gold! Romeo had a spinal injury and other neurological challenges that could not be managed. We helped him cross the rainbow bridge on 5/5/21.
