Foster Home Feedback * NO other pets, No children, Fenced-in yard required 3/11/18: Ronnie and I took advantage of the warmer weather and went for a hike out at Buffalo River State Park. She was a great listener even when we saw wildlife. When we got home, she thought a good long snuggle-nap was in order. 2/22/17: If you’re looking for a dog to love you, and I mean REALLY love you, look no further. Ronnie loves her people, there is no doubt about that. She recently stayed in boarding for a few days, and when I picked her up she was so excited, she didn’t know what to do with herself. She couldn’t decide if she wanted to stay by my side for petting or go to the car to go home. I agree, Ronnie, these are the tough questions. When she finally decided to get in the car, she rested her chin on my shoulder the whole ride home. This dog has oodles of life to give! 2/10/18: After 6 months in our home, we are in love with this little nugget. She’s learning some fun tricks like jump and spin, play dead and roll over. She is such a fun dog to have around. We really wish we could keep her, but we want to keep our home open to more dogs in need. We know there is a perfect home out there for Ronnie, and we are excited to meet those people. 12/11/17: Ronnie has grown into such a happy girl, despite all of the pain she's no doubt endured. It is so wonderful to see these positive changes happening. At first, Ronnie was not happy about using a kennel. Luckily, she has figured out that her kennel is a safe space, all just for her. If she wants to chew on a bone that is out in the living room, she will pick it and run (very enthusiastically) into her kennel to enjoy her bounty. Ronnie was initially an exuberant leash-puller; with some training and a walking harness, she has turned into the splendid walking partner. Ronnie is going to be an absolutely perfect companion for the right person, and we are so excited to meet you, whoever you are! 11/6/17: SO MANY CUDDLES! This dog is a perfect friend for those who dislike the cold. She prefers the warmth of indoors to long romps in the snow. Since the weather turned, Ronnie and I have spent many hours lounging by the fire, sewing, and baking cookies. Every time I let her out of her kennel, she does this adorable slow, happy lolloping run through the house, and it makes me want to squish her face so much! We still have no accidents in the house, she's doing great in her kennel, and Ronnie is really honing her leash skills. 10/12/17: Ronnie is an amazing dog. So incredibly loving and sweet and cuddly and awesome. All this dog wants in life is to be with her people. We don't have any bathroom problems in the house; she does well in the kennel (after she settled into her heavy duty kennel), and she walks nicely on a leash. Ronnie's a great size - not too big, not too small. She rides nicely in the car, and we've been working on a little bit of anxiety when she's left alone in the car for brief periods of time. She's doing really well. When we first started, we couldn't even leave her alone in the car to run into the house to grab something we forgot. Last weekend, I was able to run in to the grocery store for coffee beans, and she did great. I'll continue to take her for very short trips to build her confidence. Oh, and Ronnie's seriously adorable. She's so cute that people have pulled their cars over to talk to us while we're walking in the neighborhood. So if anyone is looking for dog that can help them get a date, Ronnie would be perfect. 8/13/17 Volunteer Feedback: Ronnie had a kennel break at our house. She very interested in laying on the couch! She had 2 poop accidents but that was it. Otherwise did all her business outside. Ronnie doesn't love the kennel and will need a little work in this department. I was able to leave her in a metal kennel for roughly 25 minutes and although she was anxious, she did not bust out of it. Ronnie will need some positive reinforcements with the kennel. I think it wouldn't take her long to be comfortable in one. She is a lover and loves her people!! Ronnie is very content just hanging out with her family. She would be a pretty easy dog to have around once her fear of the kennel is relieved. And she is as cute as a button!! 8/12/17: Ronnie is a sweet lady who finds the world a little scary at times. Men especially can scare her, but with patience, she realizes they are friends. Ronnie will need a home who understands and can help her overcome her fears.

    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 75. {s3829code380/} If you would like to provide this dog a loving home, please fill out a pre-adoption application. Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. Statistics Name: Virginia Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix Age: 4.5 Years Size: Large 61 Lbs. ~Large range: 61-100 lbs. Adoption Donation: $75 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid by cash or check. Virginia needs a home with no other pets Other: Spayed Female, Vaccinations current, Microchip, No other animals of any kind, Needs a fenced-in yard, Older/Considerate Children only. Virginia is looking for a home and person to be all hers! Virginia's 3 Minutes of fame! https://goo.gl/y2A25Q Foster Home Feedback * Virginia needs a fenced-in yard, Older/Considerate children only, No cats, No dogs. * Virginia has a history of skin allergies, but is currently free of any allergy symptoms and currently, takes no medications. To remain so, she must eat only her RX food. 4/6/18 Volunteer feedback: For the last few weeks, I have had the pleasure of fostering this sweet, distinguished, and beautiful girl while her permanent foster mama took care of a previous rescue. First, I must tell you that I have mobility issues. I can't walk unaided, and Virginia is a powerful girl. She does need a firm hold when walking her, but she responds very well to correction and is very food motivated, but never food reactive. If it weren't for MY walking issues, I am quite sure this sweetheart would have found her forever home with me. Fortunately for me, the dedicated rescue volunteers stepped up, literally, and made sure Virginia got her daily walks. She has been a lovely house guest, learning my new routine, when and where to do her business, eat, and puts up with me recycling my wardrobe to see her all prettied up. Virginia travels beautifully in the car, visits my grown-up family in Grand Forks with reciprocal delight, and looks for me to ask permission to go outside & to eat her kibble. She has a loud bark and seemed to be growing protective of me, but we quickly remedied any issues by having her greet new visitors outside, where her tail wags & thumps, and she wiggles with a few "hello" barks thrown in. Virginia loves to give kisses, is a champion snuggler, and goes with my flow. I was worried it would be a big adjustment for her to get used to my routine, my house, my walker/crutches, and none of these proved true. Please consider giving Virginia a permanent home. You won't regret it, and I will truly miss her. But, I will look forward to seeing your pictures...because this is one girl whose sweetness you just have to keep trying to capture on camera. 1/6/18 Volunteer Feedback: Can’t tell you how happy I am to have this marvelous girl in my home, even if it means crating and rotating with Fetty and my little dog. Virginia is such a good girl and today I left her unkenneled alone in the house while Fetty and my little guy went to the Vet...and she was PERFECT!! She remains totally relaxed and happily content, separated by only a gate or wire kennel. Seriously, Virginia is a perfect guest: eats well, kennels perfectly, no accidents, doesn’t even bark when strangers come to my home; And the only time she has ever barked is when she goes outside to potty and just has to let me know she does have a voice and is happy it is warm enough to make a running lap around the backyard before heading back to her favorite end of the couch. Virginia is truly a gem of a dog! 12/22/17 Volunteer Feedback: If you are looking for a low key dog, then please check out Virginia. A loving volunteer has been giving Virginia day outings and overnight outings in her home. The volunteer reports that Virginia is very relaxed and quiet. Virginia just likes to lounge around the house and has some very polite manners. She doesn’t jump on people or bark or counter surf and she has excellent walking skills. Virginia enjoys short strolls around the neighborhood but doesn’t need too much physical exercise. She prefers to keep her distance from dogs, so on walks, her adopter will need to make sure she is given space in relation to other dogs. Virginia has been trained to redirect her attention back to her human when she sees another dog. This training will be transferred to whoever adopts her. The 4LOD training team will help any adopter or foster with helping Virginia adjust to their home and showing the humans all the good things Virginia knows. She is a very sweet, smart, calm and loving dog. Please consider adopting her. To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: www.4luvofdog.org

    Iris

    rescue
    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 180. {s3829code380/} If you would like to provide this dog a loving home, please fill out a pre-adoption application. Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. FOSTER HOME NEEDED Statistics Name: Iris Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix Age: 4.5 Years Size: Large 87 lbs ~Large Range: 61 - 100 lbs Adoption Donation: $75 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid by cash or check. Other: Spayed Female, Vaccinations current, Microchip, No other pets, Older considerate children only, Iris is super sweet...You are gonna love her! Foster Home Feedback ** No other pets 4/7/18: Iris is the easiest dog ever to have in your home. She sleeps 95% of the time that you are home. She loves all people; she has met many of our friends and has been great around everyone. Iris doesn't even bark at the mailman. She loves going for walks but car rides are her favorite. She just loves being around you. Iris is not the type of dog that wants to be on top of you, she just needs to be in the same room. She may be the first dog that I've ever met that understands how big she is. While Iris can't live with other dogs, she doesn't care when she sees them on the other side of a fence or on walks. We hope to get more information on this for adopters as it warms up outside (hopefully soon?) and we can be outside more. Also, we are working on getting her into some training classes as well. Iris does not like to be left alone but we have been working on a routine along with anti-anxiety meds that have made leaving her alone much less stressful on her. Iris is good being left for 4 or 5 hours at a time. It can be longer if really needed and must be in a secure room. Iris is not destructive when left alone, she just gets very stressed. We do work during the week so she is left alone while we are at work and we come home for lunch and let Iris out for a short bit before going back to work. If you are a homebody that just wants a dog to watch TV with you all day, Iris is perfect. She has been thru so much and would love a place to call her own. Please consider giving this lovely girl a chance. 2/13/18: Iris has now been with us for almost eight months and continues to be the sweetest thing. She had another surgery to get some mammary lumps removed that were non-cancerous. Poor thing has been through so much since she has been here, but she continues to keep her silly and sweet personality. She is looking and feeling great now and has no more medical issues going on! She listens well, is very calm, and doesn’t jump or roughhouse at all. She loves to nap and snuggle and just be with her people. She doesn’t react at all to seeing other dogs in public so she has no problem going for walks or riding in the car and seeing other dogs. She just doesn’t like them to get in her personal bubble. She is very treat motivated and learns quickly. She could go to a training class (if the dogs all stay on leash to avoid her bubble) and I think she would be great at it. She loooves treats and food and to please her people. Iris is truly a great dog, one of my favorites, and she deserves a great home. 9/29/17: It’s hard to explain how a picture can make you want to help, but as soon as I saw the picture of Iris online I knew we needed to help her. She came from an out of state pound where she ended up giving birth to seven puppies. She and her puppies had nowhere to go and it was heartbreaking seeing them all in the pound. After a few days of organizing transportation (including two flights from Pilots N Paws), they were here! A short time after arriving Iris became very sick and needed to go to the emergency vet for surgery. She had a horrible infection in her uterus and needed immediate surgery to save her life. She ended up staying at the vet for two days because of mild complications with the surgery, but she pulled through and everything was good again. Until she went to the vet again for a routine exam and it was discovered she was heartworm positive. Poor Iris has been through so much already and now this. She has been going through heartworm treatment for two months and has one more month left. The treatment is getting injections once a month to kill the heartworms. She has been doing very well with treatment. She needs to be on crate rest while she goes through the treatment which is not a big deal for her since she is already very mellow and laid back. Iris is one of the sweetest dogs I have ever met. We have fostered over 70 dogs and there’s something about Iris that has touched my heart. She’s only about 4 years old, but she has an old soul. She is very mellow and relaxed. She loves to hang out with her people and is not hyper or needy at all. She listens very well and is treat motivated so teaching her new things has been easy. Iris needs to go to a home with no other pets though. Some dogs just want to be the only pet and that is what Iris wants for her best life. She deserves all of the attention to herself. She does well on walks and if she sees other dogs she does not try and get to them. She just ignores them. She loves going for car rides and will sit in the back calmly and look out the window. Unfortunately, Iris does have some separation anxiety so she needs to go to a home with no shared walls. She has a special crate she stays in when we are not home and she does very well in it, but she does bark and whine when we leave. The crate is an extra strong metal crate that she cannot break out of. When she was in a weaker crate she was able to break out of it and chewed the wood trim of our door and window. Because of this, it is recommended she not be left out when no one is home. When we are home, she is super easy, does not bark or whine at all, and just wants to hang out with you on the couch or outside in the sunshine. Iris is truly a great dog and I am so thankful we were able to help her. If you have a home with no pets and are looking for an amazing dog, Iris is it.

    Donatella

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Mutt
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Schnauzer / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 180. {s3829code380/} If you would like to provide this dog a loving home, please fill out a pre-adoption application. Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. Statistics Name: Donatella Breed: Schnauzer Age: 7 Years Size: Small 15 lbs. ~Small range: Up to 25 lbs Adoption Donation: $180 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Spayed Female, Vaccinations current, Microchip, Diabetic * Donatella was diagnosed as having diabetes. Her foster family works with Donatella to keep this condition under control so she can live a happy life. She will need a forever home committed to keeping her healthy and managing her condition. Donatella's meds are approximately $20 per month. Glucose checks are needed every 6 months - 1 year once she is regulated, the cost is approximately $110 for each visit. For more information on diabetes in dogs, please visit the link below: http://pets.webmd.com/dogs/diabetes-dogs-symptoms-treatments-dietary-management Questions: http://www.4luvofdog.org/contact_us.html * Here are links for more info on dogs with diabetes in case it is useful to you. http://www.petdiabetesmonth.com/dog_what_is.asp http://www.vcahospitals.com/main/pet-health-information/article/animal-health/diabetes-mellitus-in-dogs/744 http://www.vetstreet.com/care/diabetes-in-dogs Donatella wants your love! Foster Home Feedback 5/1/18: It’s been awhile since I have added any feedback. Donatella has lost 4 pounds since she has been in foster care. She could stand to lose a few pounds when I first met her so we started limiting snacks and changed her food. We have been working on getting her blood sugars in balance, as weight loss and decreasing snacks affect her blood sugar levels and insulin intake. Her latest glucose curve was consistent with the last curve, so she is keeping her blood sugars under control. This is very good news. She is so good when taking her shots. She just sits there very patiently and lets you administer the shot. This is the two times of the day that she gets a little treat, so she is on her best behavior. Donatella has become very familiar with my house, so her limited eyesight is no longer an issue. She runs around like a wild woman, playing with her toys and jumping up on the furniture like she has 20/20 vision. She does well with the cats and mellow dogs. If my hyper white fluffy dog is excited, then Donatella will follow suit. This may result in a scuffle at times, as both can be jealous of the other and neither of them wants to give in. Minutes later, they are usually cuddled up next to each other. Donatella loves to go outside and go for walks. She does much better at kenneling than she did when I started fostering her. She walks right in and no longer barks. She has a low moan/groan that sounds like Frankenstein’s monster, a zombie or a pirate that she uses when she needs to go outside, wants to play, or thinks it’s dinner time. I think she could make a pretty sweet soundtrack for a Halloween party. Donatella would be a wonderful companion for someone who is home most of the day or if she has a fluffy friend—be it a cat or mellow dog. Please consider adopting her. Donatella is a super sweet, sassy, loving girl. The love you would receive from her definitely outweighs any medical issues she may have. 10/27/17: Donatella is a very unique looking dog. She is a gray and white merle mini Schnauzer. The merle gene is a dilution gene, causing her to have a light coat and one blue eye. She is a very nice, gentle dog. Her favorite activities are tug of war, going for walks outside, cuddling up in her dog bed when she wants alone time and sitting on or near her favorite person, as she enjoys a good ear scratch and belly rub. Donatella has been diagnosed with diabetes over a year ago. Due to this, she does require a special diabetic food from the Vet and 2 doses of insulin per day. The insulin shots are very easy to administer and she tolerates them very well. Also, due to diabetes, cataracts have formed limiting her vision. Donatella is highly adaptable and within a week she was cruising around the house like she lived here forever. Not going to lie, there were a few times that she bumped into a wall or some furniture, but she is a very quick learner. She also takes allergy medication as needed for itchy skin and a joint supplement due to a knee that can slip out of joint (luxating patella) which causes her to limp from time to time. She does require occasional grooming to keep her beard and eyebrows in check. Donatella is both house trained and kennel trained. We had an adjustment period where she was quite anxious when I left her alone, but she seems to be adjusting as she gets used to my daily routine. Diffusing a calming essential oil also seems to help. Donatella is super curious about both my cats and dogs. She does not give them much personal space when they are within her eyesight, which does annoy my dogs—but she also understands their cues and is getting better at backing off. She does get a little jealous when I am giving another dog attention but seems to be getting used to having to share my time with others. I think Donatella would be a great companion dog for someone that is home often or in a home with a companion dog or cat. She seems to be less anxious when she has company. Donatella is such a loving dog. It has been a joy getting to know her the past two weeks. She has so much love and loyalty to give to some lucky family.

Adoption fees may be paid by cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, vaccinations current, microchip, dog selective, NO Cats Burke is looking for his home. Foster Home Feedback * NO Cats * Dog Selective 4/4/18: We've been fostering Burke for a couple weeks now...and there are so many great things to say about him! For starters, he's got to be the easiest foster we've had so far. Burke is super laid back and has a very quiet, calm presence. He doesn't demand anything from you except to save him a spot on the couch! This guy loves snuggles; Burke curls into a ball right next to you and will be content for hours. He's taken a considerable liking to my fiance. When he leaves to go to work, Burke loves to sit and watch out the window patiently waiting for his return, with naps along the way too, of course. I have no doubts that this guy would do just fine being alone during the day while his owner is at work, either outside the kennel or inside the kennel. He hasn't touched anything around our house that we haven't given him. Even though I work from home, Burke's so low maintenance I can barely tell he's here with me! He can be pretty stubborn so I don't try to force him to do anything that he doesn't want to do. Respectful kids/adults are a must for him, to respect his wishes/space. Once he's settled in a spot, it can be difficult to move him if he doesn't want to move. Using treats and a happy "Come here Burke!" usually does the trick though. Despite him being pretty low-key, he's still a goofball that loves to sit with his legs outstretched behind him. He loves a good belly rub and loves to go for walks! Burke just lights up when you get the leash and harness out. Please consider meeting Burke, he has SO much love to give! 3/19/18 Volunteer Feedback: I can't believe we still have this handsome meatball in the rescue! I have spent quite a bit of time with him and he is so awesome. If my significant other was onboard for having a third dog, Burke would be all mine! I've had him on outings out in public (Scheel's, Natural Pet Center, pack walks) and he is so great and well mannered! He was very friendly with all the people he met on his outings, and he is so calm and well mannered. He is a hefty boy and can pull, but when using an Easy Walk harness, he walks much better. He knows how to sit and lay down, and is very treat motivated. We would be a star student in an obedience class! We have had reports of him being dog selective in the past. I've introduced him to both of my female pitties - one is super friendly with everyone/everything and the other is selective with other dogs. He is able to hang with them without any problems. I had him at my house for a kennel break for a day and he was great with them. He's not playful but he doesn't mind the doggy company! I've introduced him to a small, crabby male who snarked at him a few times and Burke just wanted to be buddies - no negative reaction at all! I also took him on a pack walk with a couple of other people with their dogs, and both my dogs. I was able to handle him and both my girls with no issues. He was not reactive to the other dogs at all. Two of them were big males and he was very relaxed around them. We even ran into an off-leash dog and Burke handled it like a champ (I can't say the same for my own dog!). He stayed calm and was able to move past without any issues. While I had him at my house, I kenneled him for a couple of hours and he did great. No mess, no noise, and was very comfortable in a kennel. I told him "kennel up" threw a couple of treats in and in he went! He is potty trained as well - he knew where to stand when he wanted to go outside. He is very well mannered in the house; he waited for me to invite him up onto furniture and got down when I told him to. The mailman rang the doorbell, and while my dogs lost their marbles barking, Burke remained calm but curious. Not a peep! He also rides nicely in the car and seems to enjoy them! He is also a pro at cuddling. As you can see in the one picture, he thinks he is a lap dog, and snored in my lap for about an hour. Because Burke is such a laid back, chill guy; small/young kids are not his thing. Too much commotion and noise! He would do best with older/considerate kids - I would say this age would be teenager +. Please consider meeting this handsome boy! We will be able to offer smooth, slow introductions with any resident dogs to make sure the transition goes smoothly. He just wants a couch or dog bed to snooze on, and someone to love up on him! 2/13/18 Volunteer Feedback: Who doesn’t love the ever-present grumpy face?! Don’t let it fool you, this guy is a great, easy going dog. Burke loves to get pets, go for rides and short walks. He is a great cuddler and a really easy dog. I think Burke would do well in a household that doesn’t mind some cuddling. 2/12/18 Volunteer Feedback: Burke is such a sweetheart! He looks really grumpy but I promise, he's not. He played fetch with me and actually gave me the ball back, which my own dog doesn't even do. Burke also sat on my lap and next to me for a while; he's just really gentle and sweet. He loves to just chill and be petted. Burke warmed up to me pretty fast, considering I only met him five minutes before he was all over me. 1/7/18: Hello, my name is Burke and I’m about 2.5 years old. I’m a sweet boy, but I do come with some uncertainties. I am a big boy and maybe a little set in my ways; so I prefer only female dogs my size that show no reaction. I do love to play with them, but I wouldn’t handle it well if they were to show aggression with me. I would really love a family to give me attention, take me for walks and allow me to be lazy and snuggle on most occasions. If you fall into this category, please consider adopting me. Trust me, I won’t disappoint with my kisses. To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: www.4luvofdog.org

She loves attention and will nose at your hand if she thinks you should pet her more. Sweetie can be a nervous dog in new situations and around other dogs, but she’s great with all people she’s met.

Even though Sweetie can be energetic at times herself, she seems to prefer calmer dogs who will give her space until she decides they aren’t a threat to her. Hopefully, as she builds confidence she'll get better about this, as she is dog-friendly with proper, slow introductions and time. Sweetie has really warmed up to our dogs and has started playing with them. She sometimes will chase after the ball or frisbee in our yard but usually thinks it’s more fun to chase our dogs when they go after it. Sweetie likes laying in her kennel, but she’s been so good that she has free reign of the whole house now when we are gone. We just leave the kennel open for her to lay in when she chooses. Sweetie is such a fun, loving dog that just needs someone with a little patience to continue to work with her and show her life isn’t so scary! 1/25/18: Sweetie lives up to her name and is such a sweet dog! She’s still very puppyish and energetic, but once she calms down she’s the best cuddler. We are working on learning to not jump so much and to be less mouthy when playing. Due to this, Sweetie should go to a home with adults only or with older, considerate children who understand she’s just playing. She is very treat motivated and does know “Sit” and “Shake” so hopefully “Off” will click soon. Sweetie has loved all the people she has met but has been a little nervous around new dogs. She would do best with slow introductions where she can observe the other dog for awhile, and the other dog should be pretty solid with her being somewhat assertive when she does meet them. Sweetie is currently living with two other dogs and is doing great after we gave her time to decompress. With proper introductions, she would do well with a dog companion but we also think she would have no problem being an only dog as she definitely prefers attention from us versus playing with the other dogs. Sweetie was heartworm positive and completed treatment the beginning of December. She will need one follow up check in June. Sweetie will be a wonderful companion for the lucky person/family that adopts her! To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: www.4luvofdog.org

Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. Statistics Name: Mortimer Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix Age: 1 Year Size: Medium 33 lbs. ~Medium range: 26-60 lbs Adoption Donation: $180 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, Vaccinations current, Microchip, No children Mortimer wants someone to show him that the world is not scary. Foster Home Feedback * No children 4/2/18: We’ve had Mortimer, aka Morty, for 5 months and he has really settled into our routine. He loves to hang out in his kennel during the work day, eating his frozen peanut butter kong and chewing on his bone. He is kenneled right next to our two dogs and that is his favorite. When we have kenneled him away from our dogs, he really struggles and becomes a little vocal. Morty would love a doggy sibling to show him the ropes in his new home and also show him that his new people are there to love and spoil him. He really looks to our two dogs for guidance and has learned so much from just observing them. Once we’re home from work, he is ready to hang out with me and soak up all the cuddles. He is a very go with the flow kind of guy, never demanding anything from us. Mortimer still steers clear of my husband. He goes one step forward and two steps backward constantly when it comes to living with a man. He definitely needs a female-only home and I must say I cannot wait to see how much he will grow in his perfect female-only, kid-free forever home. When I’m home alone with him (I’m female) he can still be skittish at times but the leaps and bounds he has made is truly heart-bursting. He really lets his personality shine when he’s with just females. Seeing this boy happy and wiggly and give out kisses left and right can warm the heart of even the coldest person. Morty is fearful in most situations, especially when out in public, but as long as he has an understanding human who will guide him through life he is golden. When out on walks he is a perfect gentleman on the leash (he walks better than my two dogs!) and reacts like a gentleman when he sees other dogs. He is a little shy of dogs but warms up quickly. When meeting new people he is usually frozen in fear and doesn’t want to interact with them but after spending a little time with them, he will willingly take treats from them. He plays hard to get but he is so worth it. Morty is by far the most fearful foster we have had, but he is SO worth every ounce of effort put in and I know once he is in a female-only home, he will drastically improve. He shows fear by shutting down, shaking, avoiding eye contact. etc. He has NEVER, ever, shown aggression towards a human. He is the cutest, most compact little Pittie I have ever met (he’s only 33 pounds!) and I promise you the first time you see him let loose and be a happy care-free dog you will be hooked. Please give this boy a chance, you won’t regret it. 1/3/18: Mortimer is a very special dog who is going to need a very special home who has the patience, love and understanding of an angel. He came to us a little over two months ago now and although he has shown improvement he is still an incredibly scared, shy, and insecure dog. Mortimer is terrified of humans and although he is showing some trust in me, his foster mom, he has shown little to no improvement with warming up to my husband. He displays absolutely no aggression, he's just frozen in fear in the presence of men, so his ideal home would be that of females-only. Because of his fearfulness of humans he should not go to a home with kids as their quick movements and loud noises will be too terrifying for him. When first meeting other animals, Mortimer is a little shy but warms up quickly to them (he has met both cats and dogs) and really takes comfort with other dogs around so should go to a home with another dog who is willing to show him that this world and it's humans are not so scary. Mortimer loves to cuddle up with our animals and it's been absolutely heart-bursting to see him run around with our female dog and play and show glimpses of being the goofy dog we know deep down he is. Mortimer kennels great at night and during the day when we're gone. We have never heard him bark but he has made some squealy noises in his kennel if he hears us leave with our dogs and he's had to stay home alone. Other than that he's as quiet as a mouse. Mortimer is also pretty well potty-trained as long as he is let out consistently. Mortimer is currently on anxiety meds so his adopter must be prepared for this monthly expense.

    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Bulldog (short coat). Adoption Fee: 180. {s3829code380/} If you would like to provide this dog a loving home, please fill out a pre-adoption application. Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. Statistics Name: Honey Breed: Colorado Bulldog Age: 2 Years Size: Large 83 lbs. ~Large range: 61-100 lbs Adoption Donation: $180 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid by cash or check. Other: Spayed Female, Vaccinations current, Microchip, NO CATS (allergies) Honey would love to be your heart dog! Foster Home Feedback * NO cats (allergies); Honey is on daily medications for her allergies, the cost of medications is $84 per month and her food is about $60 for a 24-pound bag. 4/4/18: Honey has been with us a little over a month now. She is a great dog. We had Easter at our house and Honey did amazing with all the strangers in our house. She never showed aggression or even batted an eye at all the people. Honey did great with all the kids running and screaming. She would go up to people and lay by them till they petted her and just kept going from person to person. We are still working on manners; this Easter weekend, she actually was begging for food from people. She would whine and bark at them. She has never done this before - when we eat, she goes and lays down. Honey has learned "stay" and is doing great with that. Her allergies are under control and she has had no issues with us. She is doing great on walks. She is not pulling me along. Honey really is looking for the right family to give her love. She is so sweet and gentle! 3/14/18: What can I say about Honey? My daughter calls her Honey Bear cause that's what she is...a big teddy bear! She is great with kids of all ages. Honey loves to play with other dogs and knows when to back off. If a dog growls at her, she will just walk away and doesn't show any aggression back. She loves to play fetch and go for walks. Honey will try to pull you when she first gets out of the house but quickly stops when she knows what you're doing. She would even go for short runs. Honey is potty trained. She will go in a kennel if you want her to, but we leave her out to have free run in our house with our other dog. Honey knows basic commands such as sit and lay down. We are working on staying and shaking and since she is very food motivated, she is coming along well. She does enjoy belly rubs and snuggling but also loves to relax in the sun or on the couch. Honey is a great dog who has a lot of love to give! To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: www.4luvofdog.org

    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 180. {s3829code380/} If you would like to provide this dog a loving home, please fill out a pre-adoption application. Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. Statistics Name: Bruno Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix Age: 2 Years Size: Large 75 lbs. ~Large range: 61-100 lbs Adoption Donation: $180 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid by cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, Vaccinations current, Microchip, Older/Considerate Children only Bruno is looking for someone to teach him and love him! Foster Home Feedback 2/22/18: Bruno is really a fantastic foster! He is excellent at kenneling when we leave for work - never a peep out of him. He sleeps on a dog bed at the foot of our bed or on our couch in the living room but his favorite place to sleep, if we let him, would be with our 8-year-old. One of Bruno’s favorite activities is going for car rides! He is an excellent partner to run errands with and I rarely go anyplace without my faithful foster companion. Bruno also loves going for walks! His whole body literally smiles when you get the leash out. After a mile or so walk, all he wants to do is snuggle with you and take a nap! Bruno continues to be great with all the new kids and women he meets and is doing better with meeting new men. He still barks at first but warms up quickly. Honestly, I think Bruno is a guy’s guy as he seems to gravitate to men once he trusts them. He adores both my husband and father and if push comes to shove, he prefers their company over his foster mom’s, much to my chagrin. Bruno did spend last weekend with a dog savvy cat so I think he could live with a cat once they had a slow proper introduction. Bruno has so many endearing qualities and one of our favorites is the thump-thump of his tail when you talk to him. View the short video in his profile to see for yourself! Please consider adopting Bruno - he has so much love to give and really deserves to have a family of his own. 12/28/17: Bruno has been in our home for a couple weeks now and we’ve come to adore him. He’s 75 pounds of love that is slowly learning the world is not such a scary place. Bruno does very well with our 3 boys and is very gentle for his size. He does, however, love to hand out kisses and personal space is non-existent in his world. Bruno also does well with our 11-year-old lab but I’m not sure Bruno has had many opportunities to learn proper dog play behavior so he may need a tolerant dog buddy that would be ok handling rough play and giving him proper doggy signals. We are unsure how he does around cats. Bruno loves to go for walks and literally bounces the first 10 feet of each walk. He’s is very strong and is still learning how to walk nicely on a leash. We have come to learn that Bruno has some fear of men. He is totally fine with women and kids, but men seem to scare him. He’s great with my husband and once he learns that a new man he meets is not scary, he starts to warm up. We are continuing to work on this with slow introductions to new men with lots of positive reinforcement. His new forever home will need to continue to give him the love and patience he deserves. 12/5/17: Bruno is such a beautiful, playful, goofy guy. His eyes will melt your heart with one glance! He loves to run and play, is so incredibly sweet, and loves to give kisses. Today we decided to just hang out on the couch and the head scratches put him right to sleep. When Bruno woke up, he looked up at me and gently licked my nose. He is definitely a keeper. Please give him a chance to live happily ever after in your home To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: www.4luvofdog.org

    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 75. {s3829code380/} If you would like to provide this dog a loving home, please fill out a pre-adoption application. Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. Statistics Name: Hobie Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix Age: 1 Year Size: Large lbs. ~Large range: 61-100 lbs Adoption Donation: $75 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, Vaccinations current, Microchip, No Other Pets, Fenced-in Yard required, No Children *Although there are no long-term issues for Hobie, he is still shedding the Parvo virus. Hobie will not be able to visit pet stores, training facilities, or any other public areas that dogs frequent until after March 10th, as he may leave the virus behind, and puppies or unvaccinated adult dogs would be at risk. Hobie would love to follow you around the house and keep you company. Foster Home Feedback * NO Other Pets, NO Children, Fenced-in yard required 3/3/18: Hobie is the sweetest pup and the best houseguest someone can ask for. Hobie is an incredibly happy and friendly dog, always willing to greet you with kisses, and he absolutely loves walking on the Concordia campus to greet all the students! As much as he loves to play with toys and go for long walks outside, he's also just as comfortable laying around the house and giving you cuddles. Regardless of the activity, Hobie just wants to spend time with you and share some love. Hobie is still a bit reluctant to be put in the kennel but does great after a little bit of coaxing. That said, he could probably be left out on his own as he has never touched anything I haven't given him. He really is a wonderful houseguest overall and follows the rules well. He is still a young pup who is very food motivated, so some training would be very beneficial for him in the future but is generally such a well-mannered dog. He isn't a huge fan of other animals, however, so Hobie needs to be the only animal in the house. Truly, Hobie is the sweetest dog who just wants a forever home to give him the love and attention that he deserves. If you are looking for a loyal companion who will always be by your side, Hobie is your guy! 2/13/18 Volunteer Feedback: Who doesn’t want to have a smiley, happy pup looking at you with adoring eyes. If that’s you, then Hobie is your man. Hobie walks like a dream on a leash and really has a nice demeanor after he gets a little exercise. He can be a bit jumpy and mouthy at first, but is very treat oriented so training him is really fun. I think a person that is willing to give him some regular exercise, nothing excessive and will spend a bit of time training him will have a such a fun, happy bonded partner. 1/2/18 Volunteer Feedback: Hobie came to the rescue fighting for his life, but he is happy as ever now! He is in good health but could stand to put on a few pounds. Hobie is a pretty easy guy to have around. He's excited to see me when I first get home, he comes out of his kennel full of butt wiggles. He is extra happy when he has a fresh bone to chew on - so far that has been his favorite activity. He also enjoys cuddling on the couch and getting in a good nap while he is there. Hobie has had no accidents as long as I'm home to let him out. Hobie has been friendly with all the people he has met. He is still a young dog that doesn't really know his own size. Once Hobie is through his parvo stage, I would recommend going to some positive reinforcement training classes with him - he is still just a big playful pup, so needs some help with his manners, and responds best when there is a little reward in it for him. Training classes are also a great way to bond with a new dog. Hobie didn't love the kennel at first but has shown a lot of improvement - he does pretty well now, but can be a little vocal about it at times. Hobie probably doesn't need to be kenneled once you trust him around your house, the few times he has been left out he has not bothered anything. He may have an accident if left too long, so it would be best to make sure he is doing well with his potty training before leaving him out. Maybe all the attention he got while he was sick made him a diva - but Hobie has decided that he wants to be the only pet in the home. He is looking to be someone's one and only, but he promises he is worth it! Hobie has already survived parvo to get his second chance at the good life - please consider giving him the home he deserves! Hobie will love you for it.
