Hello all, this is my first post on the forum!

I am in Caye Caulker for the winter, and LOVE it here. I had to leave my two fur-babies in the states as one has severe allergies. I am an absolute animal lover, and it breaks my heart to see the condition some animals are in here, as well as in Belize City. I vowed that I would help where I could, when I could.

This has now been put into action. A few weeks ago I picked up two of the saddest looking dogs I have ever seen and brought them home with me. I dealt with thousands of ticks, a serious worm infestation and extreme dehydration. With some good food, a good grooming and lots of TLC these pups are now 100% different dogs.

They are not entirely recovered yet but are well on their way. As I mentioned, I already have two dogs at home, and truly don't have the space for 4 big dogs, but I will not abandon these two now. I am going to have both neutered/spayed (a male and female) as well as all of their vaccinations, but I would love to find them a forever home here.

My best guess is that they are black lab/doberman crosses, 6-8 months old. They are almost perfectly house trained, very respectful and non-destructive inside. They do not bark or whine when left (but will let you know if someone is getting too close), and they quiet right down when you tell them to.

I am an experienced dog person, and both dogs will walk well on leashes, and know basic obedience as well as a few tricks (we already do sit, and paw!) before I let them go, so that they may be less hassle for someone. They had a pretty serious aversion to men and children when I first brought them home, but the female has come around full circle, and the male is well on his way.

These are going to be BIG dogs, and would do very well as yard dogs. They are quite attached to each other (I think they are litter mates), and I would very much love to see them stay together.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to email me at [email protected], or reply here. I have lots of pictures, and would welcome people coming to meet them anytime. I go home in February, and would gladly keep them and work on training and condition until then if someone wanted.

Wow, you are generous...what a kind thing to do for these dogs. I think you are right about the breed and the fact that they are litter mates. Their eyes are virtually the same.

I hope you find them a good home and good luck!

Scublady aka Harriette might be interested. Hope she sees this and comments.

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

Harriette is in San Pedro and I believe the two dogs are in the States so I don't think that would work out. They are nice looking dogs and there shouldn't be a problem getting them adopted I would think.

That was a very nice and probably expensive thing to do for those dogs. Thanks

ragman, go back and read carefully. She does have two dogs in the states but these two are on Caye Caulker. Sounds like perfect dogs for Harriette.

You are correct but it does take a careful reading. It appears the dogs may be on CC. I was confused because she said she brought them home with her. (a difficult task in most cases to bring them back to the States) but then later I she where she says that she is going home in February. Confusing where “home” is when home was previously mentioned in the States.

My mistake, maybe I'll be seeing these two pups in my neighborhood soon and that would be fine with me.
