Rescue Dogs

Peruvian dogs in need of rescue. Photo from
 These are some of the many dogs in Peru that really need to be rescued. This picture is from Sue Yancey's Damn Dog House blog, where this post shows the terrible conditions that many dogs live in. If anyone has contacts with international rescues that could provide helpful information please email Sue at or contact her on facebook.

Sue is the founder of Naked K9 & Small Dogs Rescue and has spent countless hours driving across the U.S. to rescue and rehome Chinese Crested and other small breed dogs. She recently flew to Peru to rescue 2 Peruvian Inca Orchid dogs, one who is now a permanent member of her family. She then drove from Michigan to Washington, DC to pick up a dog flying in from Peru, the story is detailed in her post Mom, can you take it? Her dedication to rescuing and rehoming dogs plus fostering a houseful of kids is truly inspiring. Any help that people active in the dog community can provide would be greatly appreciated!

Former street dogs, now couch hogs.
Maggie and Duke were rescued from living on the streets of Puerto Rico by Save A Sato. We don't feel like we rescued them, we just adopted them from Buddy Dog Humane Society in Sudbury. Buddy Dog brings dogs up from Puerto Rico when they have room, and Sue would like help setting up a similar program between Peru and Michigan for Peruvian Inca Orchid dogs. Please feel free to forward any helpful information to Sue at, she's making a difference but can always use the help!


  1. Bravo to all that give some much time and some of themselves to help those in need. We wish them luck.
    Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. What a great organization! We hope they are very successful!

  3. That first picture is so heartbreaking. Wishing them every success!

  4. Ohhhh, look at those doggies...and there are puppies that need to be rescued too. So sad.

  5. Please share my blog as I hope to reach as many people as possible in hopes to find the ones who can help me help them. Thanks 2 punk dogs

  6. That first photo just breaks my heart... I want to save them all!

  7. Oh, that's heartbreaking. Thank God for Sue and her partners at Naked K9 and Small Dogs Rescue.

    Save a Sato rocks, too. Our shelter has adopted out some Sato dogs, too. They are terrific. Thank you for rescuing Maggie and Duke!

  8. I didn't know Maggie & Duke were from Puerto Rico, they do know how to make themselves look at home on the couch! I met someone recently who rescued their dog from Thailand. Lucky pups!
