Project K-9: Guide to Canine Web Sites

Project K9 was founded after Ruby von Bremerhaven, a four-and-a-half year old German Shepherd died of lymphoma on August 7, 1996. The purpose of Project K9 is to help other dog lovers provide better health, care, training and welfare for their canine companions. Through this endeavor better lives for canines and their guardians may be achieved.

Purposes and Founding Principles

The purpose of Project K-9 is to provide information about dogs to people who love dogs. Toward this end Project K-9 will help link dog lovers with businesses and services, educational institutions and other resources related to canines. Project K-9 will try to provide information which will help all dog lovers regardless of breed. So everyone who loves dogs is equally welcome.

Project K-9 was established in memory of one very special dog, Ruby von Bremerhaven. Ruby died on August 7, 1996 as a result of lumphosarcoma. This very deadly form of cancer attacks the lymphatic system of dogs. It is just one of many very deadly diseases which can kill dogs. Project K-9 is designed to help provide dog owners with information and links to sites that can give them all the information they need to understand, prevent, treat and hopefully cure canine related diseases.

For many canine diseases there is no cure. But that does not mean there is no hope. People can do much by networking and sharing information. Through services such as Project K-9 it is hoped to improve the quality of dog's lives and hence the quality of dog lovers lives.

Bahnbrecher Old Style German Shepherds

Bahnbrecher Jade von Talhaus (c) 1997 by T.A. Lynch

This is a puppy photograph of Bahnbrecher Jade von Talhaus. Jade was breed by Lynda Montgomery of Scottsdale, Arizona and owned by Terry Lynch who also took this photograph. Lynda and her assoicates have been breeding a narrow blood line of GSD for over three decades. In 1997 Lynda said, "I have been a breeder for 11 years, and my associates nearly 30 years. We are a small group dedicated to German Shepherds as they wer twenty years ago -- magnificent old style dogs, mentally and physically sound, extreme neither in angulation, build or temperament. Our dogs are based on CH. Caralon's Hein vd Lo Ckenheim CD ROM OFA, a beautiful dog known for producing excellence in health and temperament. We have much better than average success rate with avoiding genetic diseases, hip dysplasia, spondylosis, heart trouble, enzyme deficiencies, allergies, thyroid imbalance and other diseases. We also do in-depth temperament testing and look specifically at such traits as dominance, trainability, intelligence, noise-shyness, sociability, confidence, aggression (what kind and how much selecting for natural protection and territoriality, but frowning on prey drive as it is more difficult to control). Our dogs can be excellent workers and still possess natural good manners and common sense. We use our dogs with REACH, Restoring and Extending Ability with Canine Helpers, so they have to be sound."

Special Feature

Project K-9 is an online educational and information resource for dog fanciers dedicated to the health, happiness and well being of dogs, their owners and families. Project K-9 is dedicated to the memory of Ruby von Bremerhaven, a German Shepherd owned by Terry Lynch. Ruby died August 7, 1996 as a result of lymphosarcoma. Ruby's veternarian left town to attend a retreat and Ruby died in Terry's arms after being nursed and cared for dearly to make her last moments as painless as possible.

After Ruby died, Terry resolved to help prevent this type of thing (being left in the dark while one's vet is at a retreat) from happening to others in the future by working to provide the community with information and resources related to pet care. Terry figured that if his vet is going to leave town when a dog is dying, then it's up to him to know where all the answers to all the questions are. Hence Project K-9 was established and presents links to all the Veterinary Colleges and Universities in the USA and Canada -- plus additional dog related web sites.

After Ruby died Terry started Project K-9 as a labor of love. As part of Project K-9, Terry will be working to provide information to dog lovers through this Internet link and other means. If you want to help check out how you can support Project K9.
