|Niky in her cage at MDAS. She was in an area that is not as|
readily available to the public. She was crying and
reaching through the bars just wanting to be touched.
|Niky on her way out of MDAS. We were all|
so thrilled! She could not stop giving kisses.
Along with the great stories in rescue that I have been able to see unfold in front of my eyes-- there are the disappointing stories as well-- whenever I see a dog stuck in boarding .. to me, that is a disappointment. The picture above is of a dog named Niky. Niky is a pit bull and I met her at Miami Dade Animals Service in January of this year (she was illegal due to BSL). I fell in love with her-- she was reaching out and crying- so many do that- yet, something about her really struck me. I snapped a bunch of photos and hoped for the best. Someone did take her out of the shelter - in fact, the day she left I got to see her again on the way out the door.. .. as you can see-- Niky loves people... she hates being a cage.. she needs to be with people.. so I was so happy to see her on her way out and to be going to a foster home... but, I celebrated a little too fast.
|Niky in boarding?- this photo was sent to me anonymously-|
I had no part in taking this photo.
I wrote this entry about Niky being stuck endlessly in boarding, but then stopped. I stopped because someone came forward to say they could foster Niky.. in a real home. After waiting on pins and needles for a week- Niky finally was delivered to her foster home. But, the story will not end with her now- Niky is out-- but, the work is just beginning. She is terrified of other dogs to the point of feeling that she needs to defend herself- she is not used to getting enough exercise- and she needs to learn basic obedience. It will take time before she is truly available for a home... but, she is out of boarding- she went from living in a crate- to now living in a real home... and that is a pretty huge accomplishment-- especially for a dog who has been waiting for 7 months or so in a boarding kennel. When she is truly able to be adopted- I will post that.

foster family. She got a much needed bath and they are
already hard at work training her.
|Lucky has been in boarding as long as Niky had been- months- you can find the FB thread on him by clicking here|
|Diesel has also been in boarding for months- 6-7 at this point. He is high energy and still fairly young- so the last place he needs to be is in a kennel-- he needs to be in a home with a yard and someone who will teach him obedience. You can learn more about him by clicking here.|
|Bianca has been in and out of MDAS several times- on her thread someone has stated that she is to be flown to them- but, has she been sent off yet? I am not sure. Please, for more information on her click here.|
|Tear Drop has been in boarding for very long time- and is possibly having some medical care. For more information on Tear Drop- and/or if you can help with a home - please click here.|

|Saibr has been in boarding since June and really needs out!! Please click here for more information or if you can help this little one be free.|
|Spike has been in boarding since July with the possibility of being shipped off to another state to an adopter who just appeared on Facebook- I am not sure of the fate of this little dog- but, if you can help please click here.|
|Ty has been in boarding since July and desperately needs out and into a real home. Please click on his Facebook link here if you can help him.|
|Seuss now called Hayden - appeared to have a foster, but it did not work out. He looks so much better now, but boarding is not the best place for any dog. He has been out of the shelter since May- I am not sure how long he has been in boarding- but, I understand he will need some training. Click here to find out more.|
|Kathy has been in boarding since June- if you can help her - please click here.|
|Oscar has been in boarding since June and I understand he is a very nice little dog. He needs a real home or a real rescue to take him in. You can learn more about him by clicking here.|
|I hope this one is wrong. Cindy is just a little baby- and if this is true and she is in boarding.. that means that someone took a dog that had been fostered and then rescued her and put her in boarding. Boarding is NOT a safe place for any baby. But, I am just going by what is listed... I am hoping this is wrong. But, you can see her link here.|
|Girl has been in boarding for a long time! It looks like she was in MDAS back in March. I do not know the full story on her, but if she has been in boarding this whole time- that could not be good for her! You can learn more about her on her Facebook thread here.|
|Minnie really needs a home! She was pulled out of MDAS back in April. A chipin was done and there was said to be a plan, but I don't think leaving a dog in boarding is really a plan. I am not sure what happened, but she is needing either an adopter or a truly responsible rescue to take her. You can read more about her on her original thread here.|
|Diamond is in boarding and looking for a real home- please click here for information on her.|
|Mimi has been in boarding for some time. She really needs a home. You can learn more about her by clicking here. |
I KNOW there are more dogs- but, at this time.. I am sticking solely with the ones who are currently posted online as being stuck in boarding. If you know firsthand of any others- please feel free to add links to them in the comment section.
