Welcome to the Las Vegas

Foster Homes Needed

 

 

LVDDR recently experienced a very tragic loss. We lost one of our adopters and one of our senior Dobermans within a day of  each other. Grace, a widow with no children or family had adopted two senior Dobermans in the past 7 years or so, Zeus was her third senior Doberman she adopted from us. Zeus had been with Grace for about two years, one of our foster moms brought a special prescription diet to Grace every month for Zeus since he had been diagnosed with a kidney disorder when we had him in rescue. Brittany was very close with Grace and Zeus, they spoke on the phone often and became close. We received a phone call the beginning of May that Grace had been hospitalized and we needed to come pick up Zeus. Brittany immediately went to pick up Zeus and called to check on Grace. Grace had apparently become ill about a month before and never asked for help, she just laid on the couch, Zeus by her side. Grace became very weak and eventually stopped eating and drinking and Zeus remained by her side even though Grace was too weak to offer him food or water. When the police came to do a welfare check on Grace, they found her unconscious on the couch, Zeus still by her side. Zeus was very thin which we thought was the result of him not eating, he ate great for a few days. Brittany sent a get well card to Grace with a picture of Zeus inside saying he was anxiously awaiting her return so he could go home. Grace kept the card and picture next to her bedside all the time she was hospitalized and cried when she told the nurses she wanted to get home to  her baby. Grace declined in health and was placed in hospice a few days before mothers day 2014. We had began to suspect something else was going on with Zeus because he stopped eating, even chicken breast cooked for him by Brittany. Brittany fed him whatever he would eat at any given time be it canned food, hot dogs, boiled eggs. Brittany went to visit Grace on mothers day at the hospice, she was heavily drugged but came in and out of sleep. While Brittany and her good friend Michael sat by her bedside Grace passed. Brittany tried her best to bring Zeus to visit Grace but the hospice refused to allow him in. Grace left this earth on Mothers day 2014. The following day Zeus was diagnosed with advanced lymphoma and peacefully left this earth being help in Brenda's arms. Brittany would like to have the cremated remains of Zeus returned to her as she truly loved Zeus and Grace. If you would like to make a donation to help us pay to have Zeus privately cremated please make a donation via paypal (buttons can be found throughout website) or by calling the veterinarian office directly at 702-255-8050 and making a donation to Zeus on the LV Doberman and Dachshund Rescue account. Thank you in advance for your support. 

 

 

 

 

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they each miss someone very special, someone who was left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly, he breaks from the group, flying over the green grass, faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon our face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into those trusting eyes, so long gone from your life, but never absent from your heart. Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together...

The Las Vegas Doberman and Dachshund Rescue group was established in honor of my beloved pets who have gone on to the Rainbow Bridge.
