Adopted – Congrats!

Rex

Rex

Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog mix
Sex: Male neutered
Estimated birthdate: May 2018
Size: M, 43 lbs
Good with cats: will chase
Good with kids: unknown
Housebroken: usually signals at door
General information: Rex has crazy beautiful markings that can’t be adequately shown in photos. He’s stunning! He’s been with our rescue since February when he first arrived and joined the canine-inmate program. We felt that the environment might be a little stressful for him and decided to put him in a foster home…but then the world closed down. Recently we were finally able to move Rex into a foster and he has done wonderfully. He has come out of his shell, LOVES to be outside, loves to chase toys and will bring them back (mostly so that you can throw it again…and again…and again.) He is great on a leash, doesn’t pull, and loves his daily walks. He can be somewhat reserved when meeting new people but will warm up once he’s comfortable. He likes other dogs, will chase the resident cat, and is what we like to call a “velcro dog.” Wherever you are, he wants to be. Rex is also a sensitive soul and would do well in an environment where he had humans to interact with throughout the day. He needs daily outdoor play time and walks in order to stay happy and healthy. If you think you’d be a good match for Rex, please fill out an online application.

Emmie

Emmie

Breed: Mixed, unknown
Sex: Female
Estimated birthdate: Jan 2020
Size: EST M/L full grown. 50+ lbs
Good with cats: unknown
Good with kids: unknown
Housebroken: in training
General information: Emmie was found by a good samaritan after she had been abandoned with a littermate. Her sister was adopted and Emmie joined our rescue! She is an energetic puppy who will play for hours and then cuddle up to watch TV. She loves chewing ice cubes and snuggling with her canine foster sister. She is sometimes unsure of new people or things but warms up quickly once she knows she’s safe. She’s learning how to walk on a leash and is crate trained. Emmie loves her toys and thrives on positive attention. Since she is still a youngster, she would do best in an environment where she can continue to get ongoing socialization and interaction with others.
Emmie is available for adoption in Columbus and immediate vicinity since she will need her boosters and spay surgery with one of our local veterinarians.

Cora

Cora

Breed: Mixed, Shepherd/Hound
Sex: Female, spay surgery pending
Estimated birthdate: Sept 2018
Size: L, 50+ lbs
Good with kids: unknown
Good with cats: unknown
Housebroken: yes
General information: Cora is a beautiful girl who arrived from a rural southern kill shelter. She was temporarily fostered with elementary aged kids and did great. She is now in a foster home with a large male dog and seems to like other dogs in general. She is laid back for her age and genuinely just likes the company of people. Her foster mom says she hasn’t quite figured out what to do with toys but is curious about them. She hangs out while her foster parents work from home and is really chill. She’s polite about taking treats and food. Leash skills are still a work in progress but she’s smart and a fast learner. She’s been out and about during the day, settles down in her crate but isn’t a huge fan of being in there. Cora would thrive in a home where she had plenty of human or canine company.

Arlo

Arlo

Breed: Beagle mix
Sex: Male neutered
Estimated birthdate: April 2018
Size: M, approx 30 lbs
Good with kids: unknown
Good with cats: yes
Housebroken: yes
General information: Sweet Arlo is happily quarantining with his foster family, including their resident cats. His foster mom says he is very cuddly, rarely barks (not a fan of being in the crate though) and very loyal with those he trusts. He loves going on walks and then settling in for the evening. He plays nicely with toys, ignores the household cats, and when he’s happy he “prances” with his tail wagging! Arlo is still reserved with new people and warms up once he gets to know you. He would be a wonderful family companion or a faithful friend for “empty nesters.” He genuinely just likes to be with people. Since he has such a skilled sniffer, he’d do well in a home that will take him on walks or provide him with adequate outdoor time (ie fenced yard.)

Mallard

Mallard

**We are currently unable to schedule meet & greet appointments or do home visits in accordance with the recommendations from the CDC to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.**

Breed: Pointer/Spaniel/Mix
Sex: Male neutered
Estimated birthdate: January 2017
Size: M/L est. 55 lbs
Good with cats: unknown
Good with kids: unknown
General information: Looking for someone to play ball? Here’s your guy! Mallard is an awesome dog and we haven’t got the slightest idea why he hasn’t been snatched up yet. He knows his basic commands, doesn’t beg, waits to be invited up onto the furniture, is quiet in his crate and is housebroken. He’s not a “velcro” dog but he is affectionate and loves to curl up nearby. He is also able to entertain himself with toys (he LOVES toys!) Rope toys, stuffed animals and balls are his very favorite…not a fan of squeak toys but everything else is big fun. Mallard still likes to weave while leash walking, but that’s because there’s soooo much to see and smell! He really loves being outdoors and would do best with a fenced yard or with someone who will take him on daily walks. Mallard has been in our canine-inmate program but has spent time in a foster home too. He’s a well rounded boy who will be a great companion for someone looking for a family dog or a partner to have adventures with.

Charlie

Charlie

**We are currently unable to schedule meet & greet appointments or do home visits in accordance with the recommendations from the CDC to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.**

Breed: German Shepherd mix
Sex: Male neutered
Estimated birthdate: March 2017
Size: L, 73 lbs
Good with kids: yes, 8+ due to Charlie being a large dog
Good with cats: unknown
Housebroken: in progress
General information: Charlie is a stunning German Shepherd mix with the most beautiful amber eyes. He came to us after having been found with his sister fending for themselves. Despite his start in life, Charlie loves everyone he meets. He likes kids, likes to play with other dogs and is a HUGE cuddle bug. He adores his toys and may occasionally steal your socks…but he will barter a trade if you give him a toy! Charlie is good in his crate and is very treat motivated which makes him easy to train. He is not yet completely housetrained (after having spent much of his life outdoors) but has made great progress and is always eager to learn new things. Charlie will need to have someone who understands this intelligent breed and who continues to provide ongoing positive lessons. He loves his daily walks and is a true joy to be with.

Otis

Otis

Breed: Chihuahua mix
Sex: Male neutered
Estimated birthdate: 2/2018
Size: XS/S, 7 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Good with kids: unknown
Good with cats: yes
General information: Little man Otis is about as adorable as they come. He looks bigger in his pictures but he’s only 7 lbs. He was terrified of the shelter environment so he joined our rescue and is thriving in his foster home. His foster mom says he’s a total sweetheart, a super snuggler who loves to burrow under the covers and is house trained. He loves food and treats and also gets along with other dogs and cats. He can be shy when meeting new people but warms up quickly. Otis is an all around wonderful little dog who will be a terrific companion.

Britt

Britt

Breed: German Shepherd/Collie/Golden Retriever/mix
Sex: Female spayed
Estimated birthdate: February 2017
Size: L, 62 lbs
Good with kids: unknown
Good with cats: unknown
Housebroken: yes
General information: Britt is a terrific dog. She is currently in a foster home and her foster mom says she’s laid back, polite, friendly, loves attention, housebroken and hasn’t needed to be crated. She came in with her brother and we believe that they were probably mostly outdoor dogs and left to fend for themselves. Britt is in a home with a large (male) dog and does fine with him. She loves human companionship and would thrive in an environment where she was part of a family or with an individual that could spend time with her on walks and outings. Please fill out an online application in order to meet her.

Andy

Andy

**Adoption currently on hold as we are unable to schedule meet & greet appointments with the recommendations from the CDC to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.**

Breed: Mixed breed
Sex: Male neutered
Estimated birthdate: January 2017
Size: M, 52 lbs
Good with cats: unknown
Good with kids: unknown
Housebroken: yes
General information: Andy is an all American mixed breed…possibly some Border Collie, maybe even some Beagle…but it’s hard to say. He is a favorite in our canine-inmate program and his handler there says that Andy is one of the best he’s ever trained. He knows his commands, isn’t destructive, loves to play fetch and play with other dogs in the program. He’s an excellent walking buddy but isn’t super high energy. He’ll curl up with his ball in his mouth and lay by your side at the end of the day. Andy will be a great companion for a family or an active individual.

Gretel

Gretel

Breed: Mixed unknown
Sex: Female spayed
Estimated birthdate: 7/2019
Size: S/M, est. 25-30 lbs full grown.
Good with cats: unknown
Good with kids: unknown
Housebroken: yes with consistency
General information: Gretel is a really sweet girl who’s a bit on the shy side. She likes other dogs and one on one time with her person. If she gets a little overwhelmed she simply goes to her kennel and lays down. She came in with her brother, Hansel, who is also in our program. Neither of them seemed to have had much “dog experience” prior to joining us, but both have already learned so many new things. Stairs were a bit of an obstacle at first, but they’ve mastered those as well. Gretel will do well in a household that encourages her to continue to blossom. We have not tested her with kids but suspect that she’d be just fine with them, specifically 5+. She’s camera shy and therefore hard to photograph, but once you meet her in person you’ll see how pretty she is!
