Let's pull Cracker Jack from Fort Worth!

This is little Cracker Jack and he's plumb scared to death! He was supposed to be euthanized yesterday, but by a pure fluke, he's managed to stay alive another day.

What do you get when you mix a cattle dog with a pit bull? A whole lotta love and working together to rescue lives!

Texas Cattle Dog Rescue and Reunion Rescue are teaming up together to try and save Cracker Jack, but we only have until 6 p.m. tonight to organize details and raise the money for his vetting and boarding until he can find that forever happy home...we know it's out there!!!

Help us get Cracker Jack out of the stockyards of Fort Worth and over to Music City in Austin, Texas U.S.A.!!!

Until then, please consider sharing Cracker Jack's story and photo and donate anything you can to: on the Donate button.

Reunion is full of pit bulls and TCD is full of purebred cattle dogs, but we couldn't turn away from those little sad eyes...who could?

Thank you for caring and and thank you for sharing!

Contact if you can help with transport or want to donate a chew toy or a bed for Cracker Jack!

The plan is to raise funds to care for Cracker Jack, try and get him picked up by 6 p.m. tonight in Fort Worth and transported to Austin, Texas where he can begin his new life! Please help us save Cracker Jack and then, the rest of the world!

Adopt Maximus from Beaumont...he's the 'GREATEST!'

The city of Beaumont Animal Services has gotten behind Maximus and is reaching out for a good home. In today's world, so many unwanted dogs are ending up in shelters, it's very special when a shelter does everything in their power to save a life!

According to the posts on Max's story, "Max's story, as I know it. Can be revised if anyone has anything to add: Mac was initially saved from Irving animal shelter. He was not microchipped at that time, because they do not always chip for rescue pulls. Sometime after that point he had been adopted from RAS, then given away to someone else from there.

I was working at Beaumont Animal Services when he came in, and he was scanned for a chip. No chip. I texted a picture of him to Courtney to see if she recognized him because he sounded similar to a dog she had described to me before, and since he was neutered I took the shot. She let me know that he was Maximus, and called the RAS adopter. they told her they had given him to a friend and didn't want him.

Newer owner was contacted, also did not want him back. RAS did not come to retrieve him at that point. I searched for approx 4mos to find an adopter, and finally did after waiving the adoption fee. 
Maximus was most recently found tied to the gate at BAS, adopters were contacted. They claimed he had been stolen and they would come pick him up. They never bothered. Max was adopted last month but returned after a week because the new adopters dog kept attacking him."

Maximus has the sad story so many of today's dogs seem to incur. But....just look at that smile! Maximus is truly evidence of the meaning of his name...the GREATEST! All he needs a stroke of luck.

Reunion Rescue has not had an adoption in ... well, forever? Reunion Rescue will take this dog if we can get a solid Austin foster to help us out until we can free up a space for Maximus.

Email if you'd like to foster Maximus for Reunion.

Please comment and share your thoughts about Maximus below the blog..he could sure use a good friend!!!
