As most rescuers know, so many of our dogs never get adopted and end up dying with us from old age. One of our biggest heartbreaks was the passing of our Roadie last year. He had come to us when he was 6 months old and was the perfect dog yet, year after year, he got passed up and never got adopted. And last year during one of our many trips across the country to move to New Orleans, I got "the call". My workers woke up to begin their morning routine and had found Roadie dead, alone in his kennel. Despite his death being due to natural causes from old age, it tore us all to pieces and angered us at the same time. So we vowed to never allow this to happen again.
We have put together a small but quaint little country home out by the river in a small town about an hour outside of New Orleans. Here our "elderbulls" will live indoors and have a beautiful big and grassy yard to play in and baby pools to enjoy the hot Louisiana summer days with. Roadie's House is currently being "hosted" by Ben. Some of you may remember him when he was dubbed "The Kentucky Trio" that we found in a snow storm in Tehachapi, CA., a few years ago. He and Moose (his Mastiff/Pit mix) and Dave (his American Bulldog/Pit mix that he adopted from us) spoil and cater to our dogs that now live with a beautiful view of the river. Remember just because these dogs are now living in one of our satellite houses, they are still available for adoption.
