    Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog. DOB 12/18/15. Hi, I'm River! I was surrendered to the shelter because I'm not a huge fan of small children and my previous owners are trying to start a family. They loved me very very much and took very good care of me, but they couldn't run the risk of the newcomer and I not interacting well. I do well with older children and teenagers, as long as they understand the boundaries between what is and is not acceptable when interacting with me. I tend to try to be the dominant male in the room, so I do not do well with other male dogs or overly dominant females. I am kennel trained, and can be in the kennel up to 10 hours if need be. I have been trained with the remote shock collars and respond very well to as little as the vibrate setting. I get protective over rawhides and pig's ears, but seem to do fine with anything else. My favorite toys are nylabones and rope toys and am not protective over them, for whatever reason. I am a healthy boy, but have been diagnosed with Lyme Disease back in July of 2016. It may never pose a problem, but it is something to keep in mind for my future years. I am registered with the National Association of Louisiana Catahoulas, Inc and have the documentation to prove it. I don't like thunderstorms, but otherwise LOVE the outdoors. I am very active, so it would be best for me to go into a home with active parents who can exercise with me. I am a very very good boy and am hoping to find my future home! http://www.greatriverrescue.com/adoptable-dogs/Visit http://www.greatriverrescue.com/adoption-2/ to learn more about our adoption services.

    Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Breed American Pit Bull Terrier DOB 5/23/10 DOB approx 5/23/10 Hi! I'm Ruthie, Ruthie RUTHIEEEEE and I LOVE YOU! Well, I WILL love you if you give me a couple minutes to check you out. A single girl can't be too careful, you know. But boy oh boy, I think you humans are the bees knees! I love little humans and big humans. I just love you all! I will wait by the door for you to come home and stay by your side after you arrive. I'll walk anywhere you want to walk, run anywhere you want to run, and ride anywhere you want to drive. I can get a little over enthusiastic at times, and they say I don't know my own strength, so I need to be walked in a harness (I'll choke by pulling when I'm leashed to a regular collar). I also chew my toys enthusiatically, so no tennis balls, stuffed toys or rope toys for me. I do LOVE my kongs filled with peanut butter, though. YUM! Oh, and I get a kick out of playing dress up, especially at Halloween. Now, I do have to fess up here. I do not like any other animals so I need to go to a home with a securely fenced yard where I am the only pet. I also need a family who is familiar with my breed and/or committed to working on my training. Hey, what a great way for us to get to know each other and spend some fun, quality time together! And when we finish our lessons, you can bet I'll snuggle up on the couch and watch a great movie with you! I can hardly wait! How about you?

    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier. DOB approx 11/2/11 Hey! Over here! I'm LOLA! I am a very sweet, very friendly, very beautiful, very athletic and SUPER playful girl with LOTS of energy that I would love to share with YOU! I am a wiggly, cuddly velcro girl who would love to snuggle up on your lap in spite of the fact that you may not have enough lap for all of me. I have tremendous enthusiasm for life and an extremely fun-loving spirit! My enthusiastic spirit does get me into trouble every now and then, though. You see, sometimes I forget that clothes and shoes aren't dog toys , and the people who are wearing them at the time don't seem to appreciate that (oopsie). I don't mean any harm, and the great folks here have been helping me learn how to curb that particular enthusiasm. I've already calmed down some (but still jump for joy at times) and know how to sit, down, come, drop it, and walk with a walking harness (I'll pull if you let me, so don't let me). I'm very smart, love learning new things and respond well to any sort of positive reinforcement. My training isn't complete yet, so I'll need a home that will continue to help me learn good manners and give me LOTS of regular exercise (I've heard that a tired dog is a good dog, but I'm not sure I've ever been quite as tired as I should be. ;-) ). In warm weather, I would love to spend time playing with you in a big fenced yard, but please don't make me stay in a kennel. I've had way too much of that already, and to be honest, I HATE kennels! I don't like the cold very much, either. It makes my feet hurt and I shiver, so I would like a snuggly warm bed (maybe right in front of a fireplace). Better yet, if you don't mind a big furry companion in bed, I can always climb in under the covers, and we can keep each other warm. Every now and then I meet another dog who I like OK, but I'm not fond of most of them, and I don't trust myself around cats. Little kids make me uncomfortable, too, but I'm great with adults (men and women) and older, adult-sized kids. If you are looking for a glamour girl like me to share the good times with, please swing by and let me work my charms on you.
