Blog the Change for Shiloh the Hovawart

Blog the Change

Today it is Blog the Change day. A wonderful initiative by Be the Change for Animals. So far I have been reading a lot of great and inspiring blogs. In particular the blog by @boulderdog Healing the Planet One Animal at a Time.

Looking in my heart I know what really would be the change for me. It is also healing the planet one animal at a time. And that one animal for me at this moment is Shiloh the Hovawart. For her to get healthy and live without pain. For Shiloh to find her forever home.

Shiloh has been in my sights now for more then half a year. She is only 2 years old. And all that time she has been cared for by the rescue project HALO (Helping Animals Live On). Me and my twitter pals have been tweeting almost daily for her and were able to raise enough donations for her to get a necessary 2nd hip operation.

But Shiloh is still in need of a family. It is now already more then half a year. If we could be the change for Shiloh, wouldn't that be a great change?

Update January 2012: Shiloh adopted after 2 years 



  1. Oh my! What a sweet girl. I sincerely hope Shiloh finds the forever home she deserves - soon!

  2. Oh what a beautiful dog. I hope you are able to get Shiloh her surgery and a forever home. Also thank you for educating me about this beautiful breed.

  3. Thanks to both of you. The people of project HALO are doing such a great job. Lets hope they can surprise us with some great news soon.

  4. If Shiloh were to get a forever home, that WOULD be a great change. We wish you and that sweet pup all the best to that end. Thank you so much to Blogging the Change.

    All the best,
    Kim (and Amy by proxy)

  5. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for Shiloh!

  6. Thank you for your good thoughts!

    Shiloh is now scheduled for her 2nd hip operation in the coming weeks.
