    Sweet Pea D1...

    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Adoption Fee: 30.00. Name: Sweet Pea Age: DOB Approx. 12/12/14 Gender: Female Breed: Pitty / Boxer Weight: 45 Dog friendly: No Cat friendly: No Kid friendly: Yes House trained: Yes Crate trained: Yes Energy level: Moderate History: Pulled from an animal control with her 6 babies Adoption Fee: $300.00 From the Foster: Sweet Pea is a young pup that lives up to her name, in that she loves snuggling, playing, and loving her humans! Unfortunately, we've concluded that she would do best in a home without other animals, as she is quite reactive to other dogs, cats, and other small furry creatures. This little girl has a lot of playful energy left in her, so an active home, or one with a large fenced yard would probably suit her best to get some wiggles out!. She's quickly learned how fetch works, happily chasing down sticks or balls, and loves to run. She's super smart, and loves to learn new tricks. When she's feeling silly, she'll chase her tail or run and jump around like a goofball. When walking Sweet Pea, using a gentle leader works the best - it helps her not pull as much, and since she is reactive when seeing other dogs it helps keep her concentrated on you and not those pesky dogs! She usually does better towards the end after she's expended some of her energy. She's gotten better at tolerating her crate, and does fine in it but I would say she wont be happy in a home that needs to crate her for 8 hours every day. She'd prefer a home where she can snuggle with her humans at night instead of being crated. Sweet Pea is a very good dog, and if you're ready to play with her, and love her, and are ok with her needing to be your one and only best fur friend - she will pay you back ten fold with love!

    Breed: Plott Hound-Unknown Mix

    Posted Breed: Plott Hound / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 300.00. Name: Wap Age: DOB approx. 3/6/13 Gender: Male Breed: Plott Hound x Weight: 55 lbs Dog friendly: Yes Cat friendly: Yes Kid friendly: Yes, Older considerate kids House trained: Yes Crate trained: Yes Energy level: Moderate History: Pulled from an Animal Control Adoption Fee: $300.00 From the Foster: Wap is an awesome dog! He loves to give hugs and play, and is content to sleep in bed most of the time unless you get out his leash, then he wants to go! He's really smart and LOVES to please his people. He will dance for his food and come as soon as you call him (We call him Mack now). He knows how to sit and is learning how to stay, but that's hard because he wants to be right next to you! When we first took him in, he was terrified of everything. New things are still scary sometimes, like stairs he hasn't gone up or down, new dogs, and fireworks! He has learned to trust us and is incredibly loving, but needs a lot of patience from quiet and predictable people. If you do something too sudden, he sometimes feels threatened and will cower or growl to protect himself. He loves his foster siblings, but has a very hard time making new doggy friends. We think he would love to have a sibling in his forever home, but it can take time for him to make new friends and will need slow intros. Wap is really the best, he just needs a lot of love and kindness from people who understand how to make him feel safe and loved despite his past trauma. Younger children, because of their unpredictability, are not a good fit for Wap .

    Akoya D16073...

    Breed: Labrador Retriever
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 300. Name: Akoya Age: Approximate DOB 11/18/14 Gender: Female Breed: Labrador Retriever Weight: 60 pounds Dog friendly: Yes Cat friendly: No Kid friendly: Yes House trained: Yes Crate trained: Yes Energy level: Average History: Came to rescue pregnant and injured Adoption Fee: $300 From the Foster: Hi! I’m Akoya, or just Koya as my foster family calls me. I’m told that I’m a total sweetie once you get to know me. I do get a little nervous when I meet new people and sometimes I will bark and growl at them, so upon first glance, I may not seem like the sweet girl that I am, but once you get to know me you’ll fall in love for sure! I love to lay on the couch with my foster family, watch the squirrels, and chew on rawhides. I’m a great sleeper and currently sleep at the end of my foster mom’s bed. When I'm on walks - I do best with a gentle leader. I'm a big girl and I like to check things out and that might mean pulling... But the gentle leader helps with that. I don't love meeting other dogs on a leash - just like with new people I can get reactive with barking and growling. So walking in a super populated dog area wont be fun with me, but I really do love walks and if you can just avoid a lot of dog passer-by's, its not so tough! When it come to making dog friends - I definitely can! I like boys better than girls usually, and the ones that are ok with me being the boss :) I've done great with puppies, and once I've had a proper introduction to a submissive playful friend I love to run around and play. Since I dont like meeting dogs on a leash, between a fence or gate helps with these intros. I am pretty sure its my job to protect my family and home. I don't like new people coming in to the house or strangers coming up to my family. It takes me a little while to be comfortable when a guest is in my house. I can get there and make friends (remember how sweet I am?!?), it just takes a little bit of reassurance. I’m working really hard on this and making progress every day. I’m 100% potty trained, and am very good at letting you know when I need to go out and I love to just be left out of the house while you're gone. I don't do anything wrong :) I’m a dog that likes structure and I definitely need someone who will act as a leader for me. I’m a dog that aims to please, I just need set rules. Oh, and I should mention that I’m super smart and know tons of commands! I need someone patient to help me be successful in my forever home. Could that be you?

    Jackson D170...

    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Adoption Fee: 300.00. Name: Jackson Age: DOB Approx. 1/21/15 Gender: Male Breed: Pitty Weight: 55 Dog friendly: Yes, with proper intros (not a fan of small dogs) Cat friendly: no Kid friendly: Yes House trained: Yes Crate trained: Yes, but seems to do well left out, too Energy level: Moderate History: Pulled from an animal control Adoption Fee: $300.00 From the Foster: Jackson is a mellow, sweet and attentive boy who just wants to be near his people, snuggle and play with his ball. He listens well, is easy to redirect and knows basic commands. When I’m home he stays nearby either laying right at my feet or on the couch next to me. He is a cuddle monster in the morning and would love someone that let him sleep with them at night. True to the pitty standard, Jackson loves his people and would want nothing more than to cuddle with them all day if he could. When you’re not home though, he’s ok just hanging out by himself on the couch – no crate needed for this kid! He is so eager to please and follows his people around all day long just to be by them. He lives in an apartment now and provided you are able to get him out and exercise him appropriately he has no issues with that lifestyle. As perfect as he sounds, he does have his quirks (Who doesn’t, right?!?) He is working on some leash aggression issues with other dogs and people – he barks and lunges when on a leash, and with his size and appearance that can be quite intimidating. He’s in training for it and doing really well, but will need someone ok with that, and with working with him on it. He is dog friendly, and plays well with other dogs but for play time - doggy daycares work better for him than dog parks typically since he needs a little extra monitoring. He is a bit less fond of smaller dogs so monitoring and playing with the right dogs is important. In his forever home he would love a dog friend to play with though – providing they are about his size and on the tolerant side of things (Jackson can be a little demanding of his play friends!). If you have a little experience with dogs and are willing to take on a guy that needs a little bit more precise handling to be perfect – Jackson is your man! He might have a few quirks to him but once you learn his needs he really is a great friend.

    Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 350.00. Name: Squooshy Date of Birth: 07/20/2014 Gender: Female Breed: Shepherd x Weight: 65 Dog friendly: Yes, needs companion dog in the home Cat friendly: Yes Kid friendly: Yes, but older due to being skittish House trained: Yes Crate trained: Yes Energy level: Moderate History: Local Stray Adoption Fee: $350 From the Foster: Squooshy is a sweetheart of a dog, with introverted tendencies. She took a bit of time to warm up to her foster family, but now follows around her foster mom and girlfriends, as she just wants to be ‘one of the girls’. She loves to be outside walking or hiking, playing fetch, chasing with her pup friends, or just being an overall goofball. While very sweet and loving, Squooshy can be quite shy at first, warming up more quickly to women. She is fearful of men and does best if they ignore her. She loves all dogs and would do really well with another dog (or cat) in the house that can help teach her some confidence. Since she does have some fears that she will need to continue to work on, she will do best with a quiet & soothing household. Squooshy does get startled easily, so she would do best in a home no kids or kids 16+. If you would like to get to know me, fill out an app today

    Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 300.00. Name: Norway Date of Birth: Approx. 09/20/2014 Gender: Male Breed: Pitty / Lab Weight: 55 Dog friendly: Yes Cat friendly: TBD Kid friendly: Older preferred House trained: Yes Crate trained: Yes Energy level: Moderate History: Pulled from an animal shelter Adoption Fee: $300 From the Foster: Norway is a gorgeous boy with captivating golden eyes. He proudly accepts many compliments on them. His personality is a mix of Gonzo and Romeo, silly and sweet. His goal in life is to make you proud of him, he is very smart, and he responds very well to training. He is a huge fan of food, which is another training perk! He drools sometimes – especially if he knows you have a treat. Norway is a trickster, and could do great with further training - In addition to sit and stay, he has also learned paw, back it up, let’s go to the right/left, wait, and roll over. He is very proud of himself, especially for paw, which he likes to show off. He is definitely a Velcro dog, and he loves to follow me around the house. He has come a long way since being rescued – he was terrified of doing anything himself having not had his basic needs met when he was young. He has his quirks, and he makes mistakes, but he is a GOOD boy who needs someone to see through to his heart and love him for all of it. He loves other dogs, and loves to play with them, but also to cuddle and give them kisses. Norway probably isn't a dog park dog, and needs to meet dogs more one on one. He has a tendency to jump up and be mouthy to get attention, and we are working very hard at breaking this habit. Older children are required because Norway's jumping, wappy tail, and arousal/anxiety stuff. He also gets a bit upset when new people come to the front door, which we are also working on, and he is making great progress. He does great meeting new people out and about on walks, etc. He is pretty good on a leash, but does get excited for SQUIRRELS and other fun stuff outside. He isn’t destructive with furniture or anything, but he does have a closet shoe fetish… Either a fenced yard and another playful dog, or an active person who wants to go on a lot of walks and adventures would be ideal for him. He is a morning dude, and loves nothing more than to share your bed and get REALLY CLOSE just so you know he’s thinking about you all night long. However, he WILL kennel at night if you don’t want him in bed. He isn’t a perfect dog, but if you could only see how far he’s come, you’d see what I see…the most beautiful, grateful, loyal heart, and the silliest goof all in one. A gem. A diamond in the ruff.

Energy level: Moderate History: Pulled from a high kill shelter Adoption Fee: $250 From the Foster: Hi! My name is Tomato, but my foster family prefers to call me “Pretty princess Tomato pie”. I have had a rough start to life and had a few health challenges but I’m all healed up and ready to find my forever family!! My favorite thing in the world is to be next to my humans, I love snuggling and sitting with them and making sure they know I’m right there for anything they need. My second favorite thing is peanut butter frozen bones and de-stuffing any sort of stuffed animal. I love those! I’m pretty food oriented (but I’m grain free!) and will do just about anything for a treat. I’m housebroken but not crate trained. I do well without a crate and just lie on the couch and protect the neighborhood when I’m left alone & I’m not overly vocal says my foster family. I love car rides, baths and even love going to the vet (They love me there)….not many dogs can say that. I also put up with my foster family putting hats and clothes on me, I secretly love my jammies! I get so so so excited to see my humans my little body just wiggles and wiggles! My forever home shouldn’t be a chaotic one, I prefer it just to be chill….I like walks and playing outside, but am still learning this whole family dog business, so I will need a person/family that is willing to work on this with me and probably without small humans running around, the older ones I can handle. So far I love it! If you’re wanting a Velcro fur friend and are willing to spoil me rotten- I mean, train me- then I’m your dog! Can’t wait to meet you. – Princess Tomato

Name: Myles Age: 10 years Gender: Male Breed: Beagle Weight: 27 lbs Dog friendly: Yes Cat friendly: Yes, a bit unsure of them Kid friendly: Yes House Trained: In progress Crate Trained: Yes Energy level: Moderate History: From a shelter in Kentucky Adoption Fee: $250 From the Foster: Myles is a sweet old boy. We is pretty low key except when it comes to his nose; then he gets all excited and the excitable Beagle comes out. Yes, he's a little overweight because of his nose and his desire to eat. He does well on a leash and enjoys leisurely walks. Myles does well in crate but prefers to be left out. He is doing pretty well with potty training, every once in awhile he will still have the occasional accident. He is fine with dogs. A bit unsure and afraid of the cats, but getting better at being in the same space- it's mostly at the cats if you hear him bark. Fine with kids and all people. He's not an in your face kind of guy, but definitely likes his chin and ears rubbed and hanging out by his people. He can startle with quick movement, especially on walks.

He loves his people. He is high energy so would do well with an active family. He is fully potty trained and crate trained. He does well in his crate while we are active work. He would love nothing more than to be spoiled with treats and run around outside. He does need a special diet because of his allergies and we also give him over the counter allergy meds....but he is such a good boy for those. Everyday he takes them nicely and easily. I would recommend no other pets at this time and older children as he is rambunctious and doesn't realize he isn't a small doggie. Bruno is very much a lover. He loves his scratches too and if you get him in a couple spots his legs just starts going with it......cutest thing ever!!!! He has his own fb page bruno fka jazzy johnny where I update with pics as well.
