Day one

July 26th, 2022

Meet Burt & Ernie

These two babies were picked up this morning by one of our fosters after wandering into someones garage last night (July 25th) looking for help.

They are severely emaciated, covered in scars, wounds, their paws are burned and they’re missing toe nails


They’re estimated to be 6 months old at only 15 & 16 pounds. Burt was given a body score of 1 out of 10 and Ernie a body score of 2 out of 10.


They are currently being hospitalized at Perrysburg Animal Hospital on IV fluids and antibiotics. They’re going to be hospitalized for a few days and will be re-evaluated to see if they can go to their foster. The estimates posted can quickly change depending on their progress.


We are in need of more dog fosters for situations like this.

Day 2

July 27th, 2022

These two boys are little fighters!

They are doing well and eating well.

Ernie is coming out of his shell but Burt is very nervous, understandably, with everything he’s been through.

Perrysburg Animal Hospital is continuing to monitor them and slowly working on getting them to a place where they can eat normally before they can go to their foster.

We are so in love with these two! They deserve the world and, when time, a family who will spoil them!

Our friends with CUDDLY reached out to us to start a campaign for them! Donations can also be made through them at:



Day 3

July 28th, 2022

Sweet boys Burt and Ernie are continuing to go in the right direction and do well!

Burt is still on a IV catheter but Ernie decided for the staff at Perrysburg Animal Hospital that he no longer needed his haha

We all had a feeling Ernie would feel better faster than his brother because he was in better condition.

We are hoping that Ernie will at least be able to go to his foster home soon!

Please continue to send good healing thoughts towards our little fighters

Ready for a home!

July 29th, 2022

BOTH boys got to leave their stay at Perrysburg Animal Hospital today!!!

Burt was able to have his IVs taken out this morning and they wanted to make sure they both did well and ate well before being released today.

As you can see they're both so happy to be able to leave together and not be separated.

We can't thank the staff enough for taking care of these two!

Their journey to healing isn't done and they have a ways to go still.

They have follow-up appointments coming up really soon to check their progress and will keep you updated on them!

First day in their foster home

July 30th, 2022

The boys are doing great in their foster home <3

You can see here how sweet they both are!!

Ernie is really coming out of his shell and Burt is slowly learning.

It’s heartbreaking to see them go crazy over food like it’s their last meal.

Right now they are being fed with a slow feeder until they realize they’ll never go hungry again!



Make sure to tune into 13abc at 5:30!

We will be on with Lissa Guyton 13abc talking more about our two little fighters, Burt and Ernie!

You can send physical donation for the boys via amazon or chewy.

Anything from puppy food, treats, toys, pee pads - they would love anything to help them feel like puppies again.
