Our dogs love lying on their Kuranda beds. They keep them off of cold drafty floors during the winter and provides excellent ventilation in the hot summer months.
Though they benefit greatly from Kuranda beds, we don't have enough for everyone. If you would like to donate a bed at a special wholesale price so another rescue dog can sleep in comfort, you can do so directly from the Kuranda web site.

she is 2..her birthday is March 26th. Her rabies is good until next year in June but she needs her yearly's. My health has declined to the point that I do not have the energy to walk her anymore and she loves her walks. We will be giving whoever takes her her gentle lead. She fights it for the first few minutes but then walks great with it after that. She has never been on a choke or pinch collar as I have never seen where they work. Both my husband and I think that she will be happier as the only dog as she loves attention, when she wants it. She loves water, we keep a wadding pool in the back yard for her to play in every summer. She grooms very well and gets regular baths and nail trims. She loves water and I have never had to fight her, she climbs right into a tub. She is incredibly smart and loves to run. I used to run with her until my health started to decline. she likes to run with bikes as well when she gets over trying to bite the tires. She is a power chewer, as all rotts are and we have found one chew toy that she loves and whats left of it we were planning on sending with her. Along with her left over food and bowl, her bed (a little chewed up in the corner but she loves it) She kennels extremely well. She has been kenneled since the beginning and you just need to tell her to kennel and she will go in. She is completely potty trained. Haven't had an accident since around 6 months of age. She loves to play with dogs at the dog park, and she does love children, but I wouldn't put her with anyone with small children as when she doesn't want attention or to be bugged, she lets them know.. The vet has always been a bit iffy as she gets grumpy, but as long as they don't manhandle her that much she is usually good. We have never had to muzzle her for any reason, but she does growl, groan and occasionally lift her lip. She is one of the most vocal dogs I have ever met. she groans/growls when you are petting her and the only difference is her lip, they sound almost the same.
