Adopted – Congrats!

Coco

Coco
Breed: Black and Tan Coonhound mix
Sex: Female, hasn’t been spayed yet
Estimated Birth Date: December 2019
Size: Medium, 35-40 pounds
Good With Kids: she loves everyone but tends to jump up so small kids might not be a good idea
Good With Cats: NO!  She is very prey driven
Good With Dogs: Yes, every dog is a playmate
House Trained: Yes
Crate Trained: Unsure
Recommended Environment: She is the most affectionate dog we’ve ever had.  Coco just wants to be on your lap or up against you.  You will probably have to be ok with her getting on the couch and bed with you.  She is also the fastest dog we’ve ever seen.  She would make a great running buddy!  She loves to follow her nose so a securely fenced yard is required.  She will need lots of walks to wear her out.  She is very intelligent and will appreciate activity.  She has never been on a leash and will require obedience training.  Thankfully she is smart and very food motivated so training should be a breeze!  Coco is very strong.  Coco has a deep loud bark when she uses it so she is probably not suited to apartment life.
Additional Information: Coco needs a fenced in yard and an active family to live with.

Molly

Molly
Breed: Shepherd/Hound mix
Sex:  Female
Estimated Birth Date:  October 2020
Molly loves to snuggle! She is also very playful and is finding her voice. She loves playing with all sorts of toys and likes to follow me and my dog around. She is enjoying the snow.

She loves being outside to explore the yard and meet new pups and people in the neighborhood. She plays hard and then will cuddle up and crash next to her foster mom or foster brother.  Molly is still working on potty training. She does pretty well going outside, but also has accidents from time to time. She is treat motivated, so she should learn quickly! She does like to jump up on people and things when she gets excited. Her foster mom is working on “off”.  She likes to sit and watch her foster brother when we are outside— very observant and curious— when she’s not exploring herself or playing.

Molly loves meeting new pups! She is currently working on crate training too. She is not a big fan, but she will go in it multiple times a day just to go in but does not like to have the door shut. So, we are still working on that. She loves meeting new people too. She is happy to see them and will instantly cuddle up to them or wag her tail.  Molly is also working on being on a leash.

Molly would do best in an active home. She could be the only dog, but we think she would enjoy the companionship of having another dog in the home.  New puppies are a lot of love, work and time, especially in the beginning. Molly would do best in a home with a large yard for running and exploring, or at least daily walks/visit to dog park to help with energy level.

Maggie

Maggie
Breed:  Basset mix
Sex: Female, spayed
Estimated Birthdate: October 2019
Size:  20 pounds
Good With Cats:  Unknown
Good With Dogs:  Yes, she loves to play with other dogs
Good With Kids:  Yes, she is learning not to jump so she will be better with children at least elementary school age
House trained:  Yes, she knows the word “potty”.  Her foster takes her out regularly so Maggie hasn’t learned to alert her yet.
Crate trained:  She goes in, especially when tempted with a treat.  The door must be secure; she is a bit of a Houdini
Recommended Environment: Maggie would love a playmate, both human and canine, and would prefer that her people are not gone for long stretches of time.  She tends to vocalize when left alone so she won’t do well in an apartment.  She hasn’t had much leash training and would benefit from obedience training.

Gretchen

Gretchen

Breed: Silver Lab mix
Sex: Female, spay surgery has been scheduled
Estimated Birth Date: March 2020
Size: 47 pounds
Good With Kids: yes
Good With Cats: We were told she was
Good With Dogs: yes! She loves having a playmate
House trained: Almost. She will whine at the door and is learning to ring a bell. Sleeps through the night with no accidents
Crate trained: She doesn’t really like it but will settle in. She slept in her crate initially but decided that she would rather sleep in bed with her foster
Recommended Environment: She is a smart girl that will benefit from some training. She likes to learn. Due to her puppy energy, she will benefit from a routine (especially one with plenty of play time!). She might do best with another dog in the home.
Additional Information: Gretchen is happy and playful. She is also a real snuggler. She was never allowed outside before we got her so she is a little timid when alone in the yard.

Mia

Mia
Breed: Black and Tan Coonhound mix
Sex: Female
Estimated Birth Date: April 2020
Size: Currently 40 pounds, estimated 50 pounds when full grown
Good with kids: yes.  Mia is a little skittish so older children would probably be best.  She is also a jumper (we’re working on correcting this behavior) so she might knock  over little ones
Good with dogs: yes
Good with cats: Unknown, she hasn’t been exposed to them
Housetrained: almost! She has had a couple of accidents when she was scared/startled.  Will signal at door when she wants to go out
Crate trained: yes.  She goes in willingly (loves frozen Kongs filled with peanut butter!) and hasn’t had any accidents in it.  She occasionally whines but stops when told “no”
Recommended Environment: Mia is a snuggler and wants to be with her people.  Yep, she’s a velcro dog.  She also enjoys running and playing so she needs an active family that will keep her busy.  She is a smart dog that will need activity.  She will not do well with being left alone for long periods of time. She needs patience and safe exposure to new people and noises.  We’ve found that treats are effective.
Additional Information: Mia is working on walking and running while on a leash, though she is better with a harness.  She is working on her commands.  She does NOT like bikes but will get better with repeated exposure.

Megan

Megan

Megan is a 38 lb, 7 month old Lab/Retriever mix puppy. She is such a lover. She loves her toys and loves them more when she is touching people while she plays. She is really smart and would benefit from training activities – she is very good motivated and likes training activities! She is also good at entertaining herself.

She is a busy chewer. We have lots of chew toys around to keep her busy. Outside, she does a lot of exploring with her mouth – she may have some hound in her! Megan is still potty training and is easily distracted. Megan is good with other dogs, but we always encourage she meet other fur-siblings before adoption. She has not been tested with cats.

Megan is crate trained, and she loves her crate and goes in by herself when she’s tired. She is always happy to meet someone who will pet her. Megan is learning her leash manners, as her busy nose and distractibility keeps her from always simply moving forward.

Megan would do best in most homes, but she really does like kids and other dogs, so a home with two and/or four legged siblings would be best. She really likes the outdoors, so an outdoor active home would be best. There really isn’t much Megan doesn’t like, she just really wants to be around her people!

Callie

Callie
Meet Callie!  She is a snuggler and enjoys playing with her foster sister, napping in the sunlight, exploring the yard, and chasing butterflies.  Her favorite games are tug of war, wrestling, and chase. Callie would do best in a home with another canine companion.  She would prefer if her family wasn’t gone for long stretches of time.  She needs lots of attention and playtime.  Callie was neglected in her former life and will require an experienced dog owner to teach her how to be a dog in a loving home.

Scruffy

Scruffy is a friendly, energetic little guy.  He likes to snuggle but needs to be entertained.  He will do well in an environment with plenty of activity and attention. His favorite things are walks and playing tug of war.  He is currently working on crate training. Until he is fully crate trained, he would do better in a house than an apartment.

Lola

Lola

Lola is a 3 month old Lab mix, who is currently about 20 lbs. Lola LOVES to snuggle and give kisses. She likes making new friends and she is so friendly with everyone. Lola hops up the stairs with both front paws at a time and will follow you everywhere around your house. She just wants to be loved! Lola loves her daily walks, but she also loves to sleep – just like a typical puppy. Chewing on her toys or a rawhide is her favorite thing to do. She also likes to go in the car because it means she is going somewhere new! She is still working on her leash etiquette, as she is still a puppy and needs to learn her manners.

Lola is a little timid, and sometimes she is easily frightened by a loud noise or large vehicles. She is getting better every day, but she needs to continue to be exposed to new people, new animals and new experiences. She is fearful of some large dogs initially, but warms up quickly. She has not been exposed to cats. Like any pup, she should be exposed to any new fur-siblings before adoption.

Lola stays in her crate when her foster mom is not home and when sleeping at night. She normally needs a treat as incentive to go into her crate, but quiets down and is getting used to it. Lola is also working on her house-training, but she is still a puppy! She has come a long way in a short time with her foster mom. She has fallen into her routine quickly, and rarely has accidents anymore.

Lola is a typical wiggly, loving puppy. Puppies are a lot of work, and like all puppies, she still needs training and socializing. Lola learns quickly, so she will be a great pup after some training and socializing. She is definitely a couch potato and usually calm, but can be full of energy after a nap. Lola is such a happy, snuggly, playful, and loving dog – she will be great with any family that is the same.

Sex: female
Estimated Birth Date: June 2020

Good with kids: yes
Good with cats: unknown
Good with dogs: timid with larger dogs

Carlos

Carlos

Carlos is a 1-2 year old chihuahua mix that we rescued from a high-kill shelter and is in foster.

Oftentimes one of Carlos’ ears will be folded down while the other is up. Carlos is very loving and loves to follow his people everywhere they go. He prefers to be in the same room if not closer to them. He is pretty quiet and only barked once since his foster mom has had him! Carlos likes to go on walks, nap, cuddle, and get plenty of pets. He also likes to eat chicken jerky.

Carlos has not had much socialization, so he is still nervous around other dogs and occasionally growls at them if he feels threatened. As always, we suggest he meet any fur-brothers or sisters prior to adoption. Carlos has not been exposed to cats.

Carlos will stay inside his crate if you put him inside and does not make any noise. Carlos is housebroken and has not had any accidents so far. He will go near the front door when he needs to go outside, although he prefers to go to the bathroom during walks. Speaking of walks – Carlos behaves very well on a leash! He does not really pull unless he sees a squirrel, but doesn’t pull for long. He will stop intermittently during walks when something scares him, but he will continue with some encouragement.

Carlos loves to meet new people, but will be timid meeting new people in the beginning. He quickly warms up though and is ready for cuddles! Carlos will thrive in a home where he can get plenty of love, attention, and pets.
