Why you should supplement with Enzymes

Three classes of elements are needed for good health — vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Enzymes are at the heart of all the body’s activities, from digesting the food we eat to blinking our eyes. Without enzymes, there would be no life as we know it, since the human body is actually a series of thousands of enzymatic reactions happening at every moment! Today, we recognize the critical role of food-based enzymes for health and longevity, and this knowledge illuminates our understanding of the life-giving properties of food. (2) The body uses enzymes to digest the food eaten. Enzymes to perform this task come from the food you eat (food enzymes) and internally from the digestive organs (digest

Basics of Dog Food and What Is Really In It

Choosing the right dog food can be extremely confusing and a difficult process. Not only do you want to make sure you are feeding quality ingredients to your dog or puppy, you want to make sure that they actually eat the food you are feeding. Some dogs are picky eaters (but do not confuse that with dogs that are stubborn eaters). Other dogs have allergies to certain foods. This can be when they are born, or more commonly they develop these allergies by creating an intolerance to eating the same month in and month out, year after year. The most common food allergies in dogs are wheat, corn, and soy. However, you will have some dogs become more intolerant to certain meats, oats, potatoes,

The Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is rich in enzymes and potassium, as well as many other trace minerals. Taken internally, ACV is a natural antibiotic germ fighter. It helps control and normalize weight, improves digestion assimilation, relieves arthritis stiffness, removes body toxins and helps to repel fleas. Used topically, ACV helps maintain healthy skin, prevents itching and soothes hot spots and sore muscles. ACV is proving most beneficial to people or animals with arthritis because it breaks down calcium deposits in the joints while re-mineralizing the bones. It has proven to be equally beneficial to dogs with hip dysplasia. ACV is a good remedy for food poisoning and helpful in digestive


The primary vitamins are normally identified as vitamin A, D, E, K, C, and B complex. Of these, A, D, E, and K are the fat soluble vitamins. Vitamins C and B complex are water soluble. The fat soluble vitamins are commonly stored in special fat storage cells called lipocytes, whereas, the water soluble vitamins are not stored within the body except in small amounts. It is for this reason that the fat soluble vitamins pose the biggest threat if oversupplemented. They are stored and build up within the body. The body tissues do not readily store water soluble vitamins and when fed in excess, they are easily eliminated from the body via the urine. Because they do not accumulate within the tissu

The Omega Fatty Oils: 3 and 6 for dogs

Omega 3 and Omega 6 are not produced by the body and must be supplemented, that is why they are called essential acids. Most foods have low levels of nutrients and do not meet the required supplement amount for a dog during all levels of activity during the course of a year. The omega 6 are found naturally in the diet in animal sources, such as chicken and pork. Smaller amounts are found in beef. Larger amounts are found in plant sources, such as olive, safflower and other plant oils. Omega 3 fatty acids are less common, found in fish oil, flax seed oil and marine sources, such as spirulina and blue green algae. Since this is naturally in the diet, it is not necessary to supplement this

Pongo aka Mac

German Shepherd – Rescued from Mason County Animal Shelter, West Virginia Nov. 2003. The shelter fell in love with Pongo and they had nothing but nice things to say agoat this 1 ½ yr old shepherd. Two rescues were supposed to pull him but both fell through and his time was running out. I decided to step in. Pongo is now living in NJ with a family and he is the center of attention. He travels with them everywhere and loves the affection he gets. He bonded extremely well with this family and they are all inseparable. He has also excelled in his obedience and they report he is super smart. StartFragment Update: November 2007 Mac enjoying the latest comforts of a quiet Thanksgiving at a


6 yr. Old Rottie, 11/19/02, found on a highway, dehydrated and malnourished by my trainer. My trainer, Beth Bradley, took her in and had her vetted while everyone in our club tried to find her a home. Sheba was placed with a company where their workers keep company with Sheba and their other male Rottie 24 hours a day, which was important as Sheba was starved for affection and attention and now she gets it full-time!

Neil (aka Otis)

Otis was rescued from Georgia in October of 2002, approximately ½ hour before he was scheduled to be put down. He is a white German shepherd, approximately 2 years old with lots of character. He is definitely a candidate for Famous Pet Tricks on Letterman and he is a great dog. He is well adjusted to NJ life and has become the apple of his owner’s eye. UPDATE: May 2005 Just an update, Otis’s “Dad” comes to visit every now and then, and brought me an current picture of Otis. He’s filled out so nicely and just enjoys life so much. He is very attached to his human family and is such a prankster that he has the family on their toes all the time! Hugs and Kisses to Otis and a great thank


In Sept. 2008, I was contacted by a very dear friend of mine who runs a super rescue in mid-New Jersey, Lolli-Pop. She was contacted by the son of man who became ill. Unfortunately, Lolli-Pop was full to capacity and could not accommodate another boarder at the current time so they contacted me, with my contacts in Shepherds. “Dad” had a massive stroke and would not be returning to his home. He recently lost his wife. The two sons were not keeping the home, and were living in residences that would not allow pets. As such, Ralph needed to find a new home. The son’s could not let Ralph go into a shelter as the Dad was very concerned about his dog and upset he could no longer care for him


MEET AUGGIE 2/1/08 Auggie is a 2 ½ yr. old purebred German Shepherd. We first heard about Auggie from a worker in the shelter that housed him. She thought Auggie deserved a second chance at life since he was truly a beautiful boy, and she contacted Anita at Lolli Pop Rescue who, in turn, notified us. After seeing pictures of this boy and putting him on our web site, we received several inquiries about him. On the morning of the last day of his life, Anita went to the shelter to rescue him. We went to her house the next day and, although, we were told that he had an “aggression issue”, we decided to bring him home and judge for ourselves if he did, indeed, have an issue. He stayed with m


Sheba was adopted from the Bergen County Animal Shelter with just a week to spare. This was a collaboration effort with the evaluation being done by Melissa from Ramapo Bergen Animal Shelter. With the wonderful use of email and internet, we were able to get Sheba’s story out there and she was adopted by a loving family with prior shepherd experience. They report that she is safe and in a great home. She is an absolutely beautiful, happy, confident and highly intelligent Shepherd who likes to stay very close to us. Sheba has a fenced in back yard but doesn’t like to stay out alone. Thank you for telling us about her. With the holiday’s approaching, we are so pleased that Sheba has been


Adopted 5/2005 A 5 year old purebred German Shepherd. He was saved from a euthanizing shelter. His owners dumped him off there instead of trying to re-home him. Fortunately, through mass efforts of the shelter, Debi Hachler, and others, flyers went out to the community in a last stitch effort to save him. Enough attention was brought to the beautiful shepherd where RBARI found out about our efforts to save King and told us they had room for him. They were generous enough to take him into their care where he is safe at last. He is now looking for his forever home. He is an extremely handsome German Shepherd coming for show lines with a Breeder in NJ. Caesar was under socialized as a young p

Russell aka Muscle

This 4.5 year old Rottie was dropped off at Bergen County Animal Shelter – his owners moved to Florida and their Rottweiler was not included in their plans. His name was Muscle, but the shelter staff felt Russell fit his personality better. Russell is an overwhelmingly happy dog. His entire demeanor just says, “love me, please”. While at the shelter Russell is graduated from obedience class, and he can sit, stay, and heel. Obedience training taught Russell the self-control he needed. He no longer pulled you towards another dog. As he was coming back from the groomer’s, an unleashed Chihuahua came charging over towards Russell. He just sniffed the little dog and wagged his tail. The t


Yaeger, a 3 yr old Sable German Shepherd was adopted in 2005. He was in the Bergen County Animal Shelter and was adopted by a wonderful Bergen County NJ Family. While working with Yaeger, Debi and I found him to be a well bred shepherd and we bonded right away with him. Yaeger is a high energy German Shepherd with wonderful drive. His new “Mom” walks with him 2-3 miles every day as part of his exercise and he loves all the attention he is receiving from his new family. They report that he his a wonderful dog and everyone is very happy to have found him. Debi, Pam, and I all wish Yaeger a wonderful life in his new and well deserved home. StartFragment EndFragment

Gracie aka Mississippi Girl

Gracie (aka Mississippi Girl) was pulled (by a rescuer in Mississippi at my request) from a gas shelter in her final hour before she was to be put down. I then collaborated with a rescue group in Mississippi where she was fostered and treated for heartworm. The rescue group provided the fostering of this girl and I supplied the funds – which was Puppy-Wuppy’s contribution to her new start in life. She has completed her heartworm treatment and has recuperated 100%. She is now heartworm free and has been adopted to a family in Georgia. They have named her Gracie, because she showed such grace and good natured behavior during every vet visit and during her transport to her new family. Grac

Clark aka Jersey

1 yr old Black German Shepherd rescued in December of 2003 with a lazy ear that came from Mississippi. The shelter was instructed to start gassing again, and since the shelter workers fell in love with Clark they hid him at a kennel until the “powers that be” found out and forced the shelter workers to either adopt him out or put him down. Well, needless to say, I had to save Clark so I agreed to take him on. Everyone who met Clark, including the Vet who got him ready for his flight to NJ loved him. The airline guys loved him too. Clark was placed with a family with small children but after a week, the smallest child and Clark did not bond and he was returned. After further evaluation,


2yr old Red Dobie was rescued from the Memphis Animal Shelter (a gas shelter) on his due out day (the day of adoption and last day available). We had Semper flown up to NJ where he found a home with a family who has another Dobie that he can perform his goofy antics with. Unfortunately, Semper was ill after his arrival, but has recuperated nicely and is doing fine with his family.EndFragment
