Looking for some help in getting Dexter, a six month old Saint Bernard, transported from North Carolina to New Hampshire. He was just pulled from a kill shelter down here and is presently receiving vet care for the embedded collar. He should have all his vet work and medical paperwork in order sometime next week.

Looking to move him to Rescue asap - maybe the weekend of the 24th?

Would love to get another EOC Rescue transport going like we did for Captain. Any Interest?

Right now things are very fluid, I'm looking for folks willing to help transport - date / time / locations.

We pulled the boy out of a kill shelter yesterday afternoon - he was 'out of time' and something had to be done. :-( He is presently at a vet in western NC receiving treatment for his neck along with being updated on his shots / general stuff.

We're looking at maybe doing this as early as middle of next week or the weekend - but it all depends on what the docs say. We have to get his clearance from the vets to travel (aka health certificate).

He's not in danger anymore, but we don't want to keep him kenneled at the vets office any longer than necessary. He's just a young boy and has already been through enough.

I hope to have some specific details (weight etc.) soon, maybe even a new picture - the only one I have is from the shelter, and it's rough on the eyes.

If you're willing to help post or send me a PM or email, we're probably looking at an overnight too if anyone can do that...

First attempt at a route: 960-ish miles about 16 Hours total

Of course, I'm taking the first leg, heading north to ?

anyone?

Final Destination is Brentwood, NH - I know the receiving rescue is planning to do part of the transport too, but I don't know right this very minute how far south they can go. Regardless, I'm sure there's room to squeeze everyone in this if they really want to help.

So who's game for "Dexter's Wild Ride" ?

from the receiving rescue:
If you can get him to Salem, NH I can meet the transporter there and then drive him to Brentwood and get him settled in. There is a Barnes and Noble bookstore in Salem, NH near the intersection of Routes 93 and 28. The address is 125 South Broadway. I usually meet transports from northern NH and VT there.

Dexter will be vaccinated against rabies, kennel cough, and distemper. He will be dewormed. The collar that was embedded in his neck has been removed and his wounds are being treated. He will be on antibiotics. As for his weight, don't know for sure but from the picture he doesn't look much more than 85-90#. He is intact and will not be neutered til he gets here.

He supposedly is good with other dogs.

As for the date, the sooner the better.
What do you guys think is it possible to put this together for the 24th - 25th or could we go even sooner?

EDIT: I have officially requested help from the Pilots N Paws organization, hopefully between all of us we can get this boy 'home'

As far as I know right now, this is still a go for Saturday / Sunday. If you are serious about helping please either pm me or send me an email so I can get a schedule kinna worked out.

I was out most of the weekend visiting Robbie, so I didn't get much time to deal with this today. I'll see if I can nail some details down tomorrow.

Is everyone good with this Saturday the 24th? :?

here's what I'm thinking right now:

Either me or Pilots N Paws or a combination of the two of us get Dexter from the vets office in Spindale NC to Petersburg VA where DCBox takes over.

DCBox goes north to meet with MoonDrop

MoonDrop overnights Dexter then catches up with Gaily on Sunday the 25th.

Gaily totes Dexter on up to Dom and Patti who carry the cute ball of fur on up to the rescue volunteer in Salem, NH.

Is that what we're all looking at? If so, let's see if we can nail down a rough time frame to make sure it's going to work. Also, please either pm or email me your contact information.

Also, NESBR (New England Saint Bernard Rescue) is part of the National Saint Bernard Rescue Foundation, they are a registered 501c3 charity and all this is tax deductible to the extent allowed by IRS laws. Be sure to give me a mailing address so we can get a paper receipt / thank you to you guys.

I spoke with the rescue director a few minutes ago and it looks like things are falling into place really well for Dexter. He should have his travelin' papers and be ready to roll by the end of the week - sooner maybe. Regardless, it looks like if we get a couple of more things nailed down we're good to go.

I haven't heard anything from Pilots N Paws :-( so right now it looks like I'll pick up Dexter and catch up with Gary in Petersburg myself. It's a long drive but hey, I've done it before. ;-) Maybe this time we won't be dealing with a dang hurricane too. :razz:

I do want you guys to take pictures - lots and lots of pictures.

I think reading the messages if Gaily can squeeze this into her schedule then we're done from Petersburg on, right? Or am I missing something?

No I didn't. I got a call from the rescue asking for help getting 'Dexter' to a safe place... How could I not?

well, not that I wouldn't have regardless of his name really... But, i mean, it's Dexter for crying out loud. ;-)

Yap, I know what you are talking about. Great name for a great Saint, that will hopefully soon have a lot of friends and a new home.
