Update about Barchiel! Thanks to you all we were able to get to his rescue  $720 to help with his treatment. The other part of the money went to compensate a part of his transport. The rescuers and the those that did transports will always be in my prayers. Click here to read the article that Joyce Fields wrote about his transport.

There are some beautiful pictures of Barchiel on the rescue’s Facebook Page. He is such a professional model already! Click here to look at all of his pictures!

This is the letter that we received from Rachael from Sioux Empire Pit Rescue last Friday:

Hey Liliana, Barchiel is doing well. Heartworm injections are completed and now it’s just keeping him quiet for the next 60 days until the retest.He does have a cyst on his right foot in between his pads. He has started limping,  which as big as the cyst is,  does not surprise me. Barchiel is on remedyl for now to help with the pain. Our vet doesn’t want to remove it for at least 30 days after his heartworm injections,  so we will try to make him as comfortable as possible until then.His hip will be what it is – dislocated.. there is no way to set this once they are out. Since the injury has already started to heal we will just let the scar and muscle tissue continue to heal and keep him at a nice weight. The key to that is exercise to build muscle and strength and good weight management. We are still waiting for his babesia test results to come back from North Carolina – hoping to get those next week. Crossing my fingers he doesn’t have babesia. He did visit the vet again this Monday and the vet couldn’t believe how much better he looked in just one week! We both think it’s like a whole new dog!! He has been introduced to my household pets (cats and dogs) and is doing well – of course with close supervision and leadership. He is learning where he fits in with the pack. I have a household of senior citizens so his laid back demeanor fits right in. We are remodeling our bathroom and were painting last night. Needless to say,  he was on the sectional crashed out with the pack,  sleeping away. He is a goof ball too! When you let him out of his crate he will “high step” or prance around the room like he is the happiest boy in the world. He will also do that after he comes in from outside. We had another 8 inches of snow last night,  so he is getting a crash course in winter weather but seems to be enjoying it. We are letting him sleep with us at night for the time being,  until he can fully be trusted with the other animals. He loves his toy playtime – he’s one of the few fosters that I have had in my house that doesn’t rip them to shreds immediately. In the mornings I have to drag him out of bed to go outside. He would rather sleep – my kind of dog! That’s the first week and a half update! Hope all is well with you. Rachael

 

This is the new update today posted on the rescue’s Facebook Page:

Barchiel is having a wonderful time settling into his foster home. He isn’t sure about the last minute snow that has taken over April but he takes it all in good spirits! What a clown this boy is – a hoot and is recovering well from his heart worm treatment. http://pitrescue.weebly.com/barchiel.html

We are happy to inform you that Barchiel has found a rescue that will find him a happy forever home. Sioux Empire Pit Rescue is an all volunteer 501C3 rescue group in Sioux Falls South Dakota. Sioux Empire’s mission is to promote responsible Pit Bull ownership, provide breed education, combat pet overpopulation, and find qualified homes for sound Pit Bull dogs in South Dakota.
Barchiel will be traveling from Edinburg, Texas all the way up to Sioux, South Dakota. This little guy is moving up state! Joy Benson has directed the transport operation for Barchiel. He will travel by car. Eight people are involved in a seven-state transport for him.
We are still asking for your help to cover the costs. So far, the online fundraiser has lost momentum and we are asking for your help to make this happen.  Find it in your hearts to give a little for dear Barchiel. This has been a long journey towards a happy ending for our now happy little friend!
So far, you have helped raise $696 for Barchiel. We still need $1,500 to cover all the miles he has to travel and medical expenses. Please give kindly. He still has a long way to go to a happy ending.

My name is Barchiel (Angel of Compassion).  I used to sleep on an old dirty mattress until a nice lady found me and asked the Pharr Animal Control Unit to pick me up and bring me to Palm Valley Animal Center.  My two-legged friends at PVAC give me lots of attention, toys, and love.  They even let me help them work during the day.  On their breaks, they give me neck rubs and boy does that feel great!  Little did they know how well behaved I am, as I listen to their stories and never make a mess.  I like sleeping and relaxing on my own personal rug.  They feed me my meals in a bowl, which I had never had before. I am getting “Five Star” treatment!

I am two years old, have been vaccinated and am currently being treated for heart worm. Two ladies have been raising money for my expenses, as I will need to continue with my heart worm treatment and eventually get neutered.  So far my piggy bank has $486 and growing.  I would love it if you would let me come live at your rescue organization until I find my forever home.  I’d give you a big lick on the face if you do!
