Adopted – Congrats!

Rascal

Rascal

Breed (best guess): Wire Haired Jack Russell Terrier mix
Sex: Male, neutered
Estimated Birthdate: 9/25/2020
Size: 18 pounds
Good With Kids: unknown
Good With Cats: Yes
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Rascal needs to be in a home with a patient, loving family. We’re not sure about his past but whatever happened to him has resulted in some anxiety. He needs to learn that his family won’t abandon him and will love him forever. He would probably be best as the only dog in the home. His handler says Rascal is a very sensitive dog that listens well and loves people, particularly older people. He might even make a good therapy dog for a person that is willing to take him to training.

Additional Information: Rascal was found as a stray and brought to us by a good samaritan. He is working on his commands and knows Sit, Stay, Leave It and Come. He is working on the Down command. He is good on a leash and doesn’t seem to be destructive when left out.

Jax

Jax

Breed (best guess): Alaska Border Collie
Breed Information: Border Collies are very intelligent and energetic. They are high drive and require daily exercise beyond a quick walk.
Sex: Male, neutered
Estimated Birth Date: June 1, 2022
Size: currently 23 pounds but he’s still growing. We estimate he’ll be under 50 pounds when full grown
Good With Kids: Yes, older children will be better since he is a herding breed
Good With Cats: Yes but he will chase them (again, he’s a herder)
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: In progress
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Jax requires an active family that will provide him with a fair amount of regular exercise and mental stimulation. We require an experienced dog owner for him, preferably someone familiar with Border Collies or Cattle Dogs. He will greatly benefit from obedience classes. Since he is a puppy and is still working on his house training, we prefer a home where he is not left alone for long periods of time.

Additional Information: Jax was surrendered to us through no fault of his own. His family didn’t have time for him. Since he is a working dog, he has a lot of energy and needs plenty of activity. He has some mild separation anxiety and will bark when left alone. He has experienced a lot of change in the last month and will relax once he is in his forever loving home. He is a smart dog and is learning sit and down commands and how to walk on a leash.

Otis

Otis

Breed (best guess): Shih Tzu/Yorkie Mix
Sex: Male, neutered
Birth Date: 6/26/2020
Size: 15 pounds
Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: Unknown
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Otis likes to be the center of attention and he loves meeting new people. Every new person he meets means there is a chance for pets, kisses, and a warm lap. Otis came from a home with a fenced in yard where he loved going outside to play. If his new family doesn’t have a fence, we recommend taking Otis to obedience classes where he can learn to walk on a leash.

Additional Information: Otis spent his life in a loving home. He was recently “inherited” from a family member when they passed away. The owner’s current dog did not appreciate Otis or his energy level so he was surrendered to ADOPT. His family was incredibly sorry to have to let him go. Due to Otis’ breed, he will require regular grooming.

Bruno

Bruno

Breed (best guess): Hound/Shepherd Mix
Sex: Male, neutered
Age: About 6 months old
Size: 25 pounds, we estimate that he will be less than 45 pounds full grown
Good With Kids: Yes, but over 10 years old would be best
Good With Cats: Yes
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Bruno will need a home with patience while he settles in. He is nervous around men but is fine with them once he gets to know them. He would love a yard with tennis balls and another dog to play with.

Additional Information: Bruno loves kids and other dogs. He was tested with cats, chickens, and guinea pigs but chased a rabbit when it ran. Sounds like he will fit in almost anywhere! Bruno is learning how to walk on a leash so continued obedience training is recommended. He is learning some new commands from his handler (sit, stay, down, leave it and come) and is doing really well.

Cooper

Cooper

Breed (best guess): Hound Mix
Sex: Male, neutered
Estimated Date of Birth: 5/15/2021
Size: 49 pounds
Good With Kids: Unknown
Good With Cats: Unknown, but hasn’t been reactive when he sees them on walks
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Cooper would LOVE a home with a fenced in yard (one tall enough that he can’t jump). He will benefit from an active family that likes to walk, hike, visit dog parks, and go on adventures; he still has a bit of puppy energy. He would love to have a canine companion to teach him how to be a dog. He does have some separation anxiety, so it would be best if he wasn’t left for long periods of time. Hopefully this will subside once he learns that he has a permanent home with a loving family!

Additional Information: Cooper is just learning how to walk on a leash. Continued education at obedience classes would be wonderful! He loves to meet new people but is still a little fearful of men. Once he warms up to a new male, he warms up and shows what a loving dog he is.

Barkley

Barkley

Breed (best guess): Hound Mix
Sex: Male, neutered
Estimated Birth Date: 3/17/2019
Size: 43 pounds
Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: Unknown
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Barkley bonds quickly with females and feels the need to protect them. He had a bad experience with a male in his life so he requires calm introductions and slow movements. He warms up to males but will require patience. He does enjoy going on runs so having a runner in the family would be great. He likes being outside in a fenced in yard, but has easily jumped the low fence at his foster home. A secure yard with at least a standard height fence should be ok.

Additional Information: Barkley is very sweet and quiet. In the house he lays on the floor near his person; he just wants to be close by. He is quite the cuddler! He is great on a leash and doesn’t pull. He is doing well with learning new commands and is very consistent with sit, stay, down, leave it and come.

Ralphie

Ralphie

Breed (best guess): Pug/Boston Terrier Mix
Sex: Male, neutered
Age: Approximately 1 year
Size: 20 pounds
Good With Kids: Yes but children over 8 might be best
Good With Cats: Yes
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: Almost
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Ralphie would love a home with a fenced in yard and another well trained dog. He looks to his foster sister for guidance, attention, and affection. He would prefer that his family not leave him for long periods of time. He does need to be crated when left alone.

Additional Information: Ralphie loves humans and can’t wait to get on your lap and cover you with kisses. He is a big ham and assumes cute poses so you’ll pay attention to him. He’s a warm cuddle bug at night; don’t be surprised if he wants to share your pillow. Ralphie had some anxiety when we first got him, thus the thunder shirt. He no longer needs it!

Rudy

Rudy

Breed (best guess): Hound Mix
Sex: Male, neutered
Estimated Birthdate: 1/15/2022
Size: Currently 34 pounds (we estimate he will be around 50 pounds full grown)
Good With Kids: Unknown but we feel children over 6 years old should be fine
Good With Cats: Unknown
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Rudy will benefit from a home where his family will continue his training, using only positive reinforcement. He is very treat-motivated, which helps. He can be a bit bull-headed at times! Rudy needs to have a canine companion in the home with him. He is pretty attached to his brother Tigger if you are looking to adopt a bonded pair!

Additional Information: Rudy comes across as the most serious puppy. He watches everything, just taking it all in. He loves attention and taking naps next to his people. Rudy and his siblings Tigger and Rosie were not exposed to much in their previous lives. They are a little timid when meeting new people and going to new places; though they adjust quickly.

Tigger

Tigger

Breed (best guess): Hound Mix
Sex: Male, neutered
Estimated Birth Date: 1/15/2022
Size: 31 pounds (we estimate he will be under 50 pounds when full grown)
Good With Kids: Unknown but feel that children over the age of 6 would be best
Good With Cats: Unknown
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Tigger is the most curious and bounciest puppy. He likes to explore everything! He would love a family that will take him on adventures. Tigger would prefer to be in a home where someone is home most of the time. He loves people and wants to be around them; watching what they do and snuggling with them. He would love a canine companion.

Additional Information: Tigger is a little shy when meeting new people so calm introductions are recommended.

Samson

Samson

Breed (best guess): Border Collie/Australian Cattle Dog Mix
Sex: Male, neutered
Estimated Birthdate: 8/2021
Size: 51 pounds
Good With Kids: Unknown but most likely yes
Good With Cats: Unknown
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Samson will do great anywhere. He already knows a bunch of commands and is eager to learn more. He is an intelligent dog and will require mental stimulation. He just wants to be loved.

Additional Information: Samson is the perfect dog! He loves to play when he’s outside but is happy laying at your feet when in the house. We think he had some training in his previous home. He does very well on a leash but will walk along side you without one (we don’t recommend this until he has spent at least a month at his new home).
