A letter from one of our adopters about alumni Oso!

Dear team of Gulfstream Guardian Angels Rottweiler Rescue:

It has been almost a year since we adopted Oso.

We would like to let you know that it has been a wonderful experience.

Oso is a great dog, incredible smart and well behaved. He has even learned a couple of tricks. He loves to go out and play in the water.

The most important thing he is healthy and I am sure very happy to be home.

Thank you very much for the good cause you do day by day with Gulfstream Guardian Angels Rottweiler Rescue.

Oso enjoying life on a boat!

Hi, My name is Bigum and here is what my temporary foster mom has to say about me:

Bigum is a big and fluffy Rottweiler male approx. 4 years old. He loves to be with his people 24/7, so if you work from home or can take him with you to work, that would be the ideal situation for him.

He is a big loving bear who enjoys going for walks and does not pull on the leash.



Update about Chelsea: Dr. Emilio came back from vacation on Monday and checked on Chelsea and found her up to the second surgery. FHO on the left hip was done and also she was spayed. She is recovering well and many thanks to Dr. Emilio Zouain for the great thorough surgeon he is. We still need money to help pay for her surgeries! Please donate to Chelsea's fundrazr

Letter from Yoly, one of the Directors of the rescue, about this sweet girl:

Dear GGARR family and friends, Dr. Emilio from Mueller Animal Hospital called me to explain what had happened in the attempt to spay Chelsea and FHO.

Chelsea never showed any other problem other than limping. Yesterday morning he got her ready for surgery. She was sedated and put on IV, shaved and intubated. For surgery, she was on her back with legs wide open on the table. She was gasping for air and could not breathe. He immediately cancelled the surgery, because he was losing her.

She was put on a mask with high Oxygen and taken to get X-rayed, because he was suspicious that there was something else in there. And he was right. The chest X-rays and abdomen taken showed no Diaphragm, that is the membrane that keeps organs in place. He found that as she was on the operation table on her back, without the Diaphragm, all her organs had moved and compressed her lungs and that was why she could not breathe.

He tried successfully to stabilize her. When she was breathing on her own and awake, he gave her barium mixed with can food, waited an hour and then to the X-ray machine again to see where the organs were. These second group of X-rays, showed where the stomach was, completely on top of her lungs and also the intestines! At that moment she was in ICU and awake and in a sitting position to allow those organs to move back and stop pressing her lungs. I wish you would have been there, it was scary.

Dr. Emilio knew he could not spay and perform FHO without repairing the Diaphragm to close the gap in order to put all the organs back in place. He told Grace and myself that he had done this type of surgery several times, always successfully, but he could not assure anything because he did not know what he would find when he opened her belly.

Dr. Emilio is sure that she was hit by a car and that the blow was so hard that besides taken the hip out of place, the Diaphragm was broken. I hope I have explained the best I could what had happened. She is in the best hands, and in God hands as well. The surgery to repair the diaphragm by itself is a HUGE cost $1,500.00 + all the extras that come with it. This is the first time since GGARR started in 2002 that we have encountered this type of problem. But, this is what GGARR does, we will do everything possible to save this girl. I will let you all know as soon as I hear from Dr. Emilio.

Yoly Ramirez,
Rescue Coordinator
