Chicken and Nugget – Courtesy Post

The two girls are big and loving, happy with humans and kids.  Once acclimatized, they’re OK with other dogs, but need formal introductions before joining the party.  Cats are an unknown commodity in their lives.  They’ve lived alone on a big farm, so are not used to the social parameters that a more urban life entails. Since moving onto Saturna Island to a temporary home, last week they’ve adapted well, but have not been freed as yet to roam the territory unsupervised. 

They’re big, although “Chicken” is small for a Pyrenees and “Nugget” is some kind of mix that has enabled her to grow nearly as big.  Chicken is 8, but not spayed because there were no boys around and Nugget is 2 years old and has been spayed.  I’m not sure of the logic there.  

They’ve been cared for by the local vet but without issues – both are on worm pills, but that’s it.  Two happy, healthier doggies would be hard to find, but they do need their space and they will need some time to get used to the new surroundings and the laws of the land.  While they’ve been a team working the farm, I think they’d be just as happy if they had their own individual homes.  

This is a courtesy post so please fill out an application here if interested as we are assisting with placement. We will also ensure they are vetted and Chicken is spayed before adoption so an adoption fee will be required.

Broken Promises Rescue is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization located in the lower Vancouver Island. We are a group of long time rescuers that have come together to focus on improving the lives of unwanted, neglected and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island (as well as remote communities and other areas of B.C. if our resources allow us to.) Currently we are seeing many pets overlooked in the shelter system because they have less than desirable qualities. They may have medical or behavioral issues or they may simply be the wrong color, age or breed. At Broken Promise Rescue we believe all animals deserve to experience a life without pain, loneliness or hunger and want them to know what it feels like to be loved and cherished, despite appearance, age or medical condition. We are also dedicated to public education and raising awareness to help end the ongoing abuse, neglect and suffering. Educating children and adults about the responsibilities of animal ownership will go a long way in influencing public opinion on proper animal care, and help mold a more compassionate future. No animal should suffer at the hands of ignorance.
