Tipper and Bubble

Some of you may remember Tipper and her puppies from our group a few years ago.  Tipper and one of her pups, Bubble, got together for a play date and sent ADOPT some pictures from the outing.  We hope you enjoy this happy reunion as much as we did. 🙂

Maggie

ADOPT recently received an update on Maggie from her new family.  We love seeing how great she is doing in her furever home! 🙂

Here’s a new picture of Mags with her brother, Avery. She’s doing great! She has really settled down & she’s tough but so good with the other dogs. And she’s smart, super sweet, funny, & very cuddly. We’re pretty crazy about her!
Hope you’re doing well & finding great homes for all your other ADOPT dogs.

Milo

ADOPT heard from Milo’s new family – he loves hanging out with his new sister, Gracie. 🙂

Briana

ADOPT recently received an update on Briana from her new mom.  We hope you enjoy seeing how great she is doing as much as we did. 🙂

It took a few weeks, but I think she is starting to understand this is her forever home.  Here are a few pictures from our first month together:

Luna

ADOPT received an update on Luna from her new family.  We love seeing how much fun she’s having in her furever home! 

She and her sister have been running around the house all morning playing like wild and I’m just so so so so SO happy that now that can happen every morning/afternoon/early evening/middle of the night.  😁

BeBe

BeBe
Breed: Rat Terrier mix
Sex: Female
Estimated Birth Date: 4/1/2011.  Life expectancy for her breed is 16-19 years
Size: Small.  She weighs 21
Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: Yes
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes
Recommended Environment: BeBe loves having a yard to explore so a person willing to take multiple walks during the day or someone with a fenced in yard would be preferred.  She is very calm and easy going so she will fit in most anywhere.  She is a very sensitive and intuitive girl and seems to know you’re thinking about giving her a treat before you even grab the bag!
Additional Information: Bebe was tested for heartworm when we rescued her and she did test positive Luckily we caught the heartworm early and were able to treat it.  BeBe is pretty calm and laid back.  As is not uncommon for a Rat Terrier, BeBe has patellar luxation.  You’ve probably heard of a “trick knee” before.  It doesn’t seem to bother her and many small dogs live their entire life having it without it interfering with their activities.  She will not be a running companion but probably wouldn’t have been one if her knee was fine!  She doesn’t doesn’t like to be picked up but loves to snuggle with you.  BeBe will be a loving and faithful companion.
*Currently in a Foster Home.*

Cocoa

Cocoa

Breed: Chocolate Lab mix
Sex: Female, still needs her spay surgery
Estimated Birth Date: 4/1/2020
Size: Small, about 25 pounds
Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: Yes
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Unknown. Her foster left her out of the crate on several occasions and she wasn’t destructive

Recommended Environment: Cocoa is a little timid at first so her new family must be patient with her when she sees new things. She will require several good long walks during the day. A runner in the family would be great for her! She would enjoy having a dog or child playmate.

Additional Information: Cocoa is faster than a speeding bullet and able to leap 4 foot fences in a single bound. No, she’s not Superman but she could be! She cannot be left unattended in a yard, even if it is fenced in. She is good on a leash and loves everyone she meets, though sometimes it takes her a few minutes to warm up to new people. She is a very loving and loyal dog. Cocoa loves her sleep. She likes to go to bed around 9:30, with or without her person and will happily wait in their bed for them to come snuggle with her. She doesn’t like getting in the car but is fine going on rides once she is on board.

In a Foster Home.
Adoptions are restricted to a 30 mile radius of Columbus so we can complete her vaccinations and spay surgery with our vets

Archie (formerly Brody)

ADOPT recently checked in with Archie’s new family and got to see what a cutie he has become!! 

Trapper

Trapper

Breed: Beagle
Sex: Male, neutered
Estimated Birth Date: 9/15/2019
Size: Medium, 25 pounds
Good With Kids: Unknown but we don’t feel it will be an issue
Good With Cats: Unknown
Good With Dogs: Yes, he is always looking for a new friend
Housetrained: Yes, he will alert when he needs to go out
Crate Trained: Yes, he goes willingly but doesn’t love it

Recommended Environment: True to his breed, Trapper likes to follow his nose. He loves going on walks and smelling everything! Beagles are very intelligent and require a fair amount of activity. We are not requiring a fenced in yard but he would love one. He would do well with a canine companion in the home.

Additional Information: Trapper likes attention and snuggling but he is also fine entertaining himself. A variety of toys that are changed out often would be a good idea. He is working on his leash manners but quickly forgets them when he sees a potential playmate. He is relatively calm, very sweet and well-behaved.

In a foster home

Milo

Milo

Breed: Beagle Mix
Sex: Male
Estimated Birth Date: December 2020
Size: 17 pounds (may be around 45 pounds full grown)
Good With Kids: Yes, but he is a puppy and is learning to not play too rough
Good With Other Dogs: Yes
Good With Cats: Unknown
Housetrained: In process but making great progress
Crate Trained: Almost! He needs to be encouraged to get in his crate; treats work well. He will bark for a few minutes when placed in it at night but settles down and sleeps through the night.

Recommended Environment: Milo gets very attached to his people and will follow them everywhere. He would prefer not to be left alone for long periods of time, especially since he is still young and working on his potty training. He is an energetic puppy that loves having kids or another dog to play with. Beagles are very intelligent so activity is important. Be prepared to go on lots of walks but there will be many pit stops as he has to smell everything!

Additional Information: Milo is learning to walk on a leash and will need training of basic commands. He is entertaining to watch when he plays; he makes funny noises and bunny hops when he plays with his toys. When it is time for a nap, he gets very snuggly.

Currently in a foster home. Since Milo is not neutered yet, we are restricting his adoption area to within 30 miles of Columbus.
