Akbash Puppies

Could you please chip in to help these little guys?

These pretty pups are Bella, Cloud, Blanche and Berry.  They are Akbash puppies (Turkish Great Pyrenees).  There owner dumped them in a high-kill shelter in Texas.  Our vigilant rescue coordinator, Reg Rand, spotted them on line and went into hyperdrive trying to find a rescue to take them before they caught some awful disease in the shelter or were put to sleep. 

As a favor to the Doomed Dogs for all the help we have given them, our wonderful friends Janet Davis of National Akbash Rescue and Carleen Conyers of National Anatolian Shepherd Rescue agreed to take these babies out of the shelter and put them into foster care.  So what goes around comes around – your previous donations to help National Akbash and NASR save dogs was a big help in getting them to save some dogs for us!

Of course, we are sponsoring these wonderful pups to pay for shots, food, etc. Please chip in and help raise $180 for them using the ChipIn.

All donations go directly from Paypal to National Anatolian Shepherd Rescue, a 501(c)(3) charity, and are tax-deductible. Please chip in - together we can help save this one and many more!

One note:  although these guys look like little Lab puppies, looks can be deceiving.  Although they have similar faces, a full grown Akbash will be about twice the size of normal Lab.  My old foster pup, AJ the Akbash Dog, now weighs in at 139 pounds and is still growing at 2 1/2 years old!

If you are interested in adopting, please contact NASRN at
