Please note: The dogs in ODH's Final Refuge care are not adoptable due to medical reasons and all are in permanent homes. Your sponsorship supports the veterinary expenses for these dogs - and we thank you!



Punkin, a 14 year old female Shih Tzu is the epitome of ODH rescues.  Blind in one eye, very little sight in the other and needing dental work, she came to us desperately needing TLC.

Thanks to the Maranda Fund Old Dog Haven had her spayed and her right rear leg amputated before she went to her permanent foster home. Whether it’s running around the house with the other foster dogs, going up and down the stairs or chasing her ball in the back yard.

Happiness for little Punkin seems to be sleeping until 9 AM, having breakfast then finding a lap to sit on and get petted. Like most ODH  dogs, her history is murky, but she has never had an accident in the house, loves to sleep on a lap, is a perfect car dog, doesn’t like to be groomed, is very protective of “her” yard and chases away all invaders, i.e. squirrels and cats.

We are so very glad ODH trusted us to take care of this little dog.  And very glad for all the ODH donors who enable her to get the very best vet care.
