Adopted – Congrats!

Peaches

Peaches

Breed: Wire Haired Terrier mix
Sex: Female, spayed
Estimated Birth Date: 12/1/2016
Size: Small. She weighs 36 pounds but needs to be 25
Good With Kids: Possibly
Good With Cats: Unknown
Good With Dogs: Fine, but not interested in playing
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Peaches will do best in a calm and quiet home with one or possibly two humans. She hasn’t been well socialized so doesn’t enjoy company or loud noises. Since she is a velcro dog, her person shouldn’t be gone for long periods of time. She’s not really interested in playing with other dogs but has lived with other dogs in the past. She LOVES her walks which will be helpful in trying to get her to a healthy weight. She has lived with a child in the home but would probably be best without one in the home as she adjusts to her new life.

Additional Information: Peaches was surrendered because her owner was having some health issues and could no longer care for her. Peaches was raised with another dogs but wasn’t exposed to other people or dogs outside the home. She is a little nervous meeting new people but is very attached to her person. She knows some commands-sit, leave it, come, gentle, no, inside, outside. She is terrified of fireworks; her new owner will have to be very careful with her on the 4th of July.

Harley

Harley

Breed: Australian Shepherd Mix
Sex: Male, neutered
Estimated Birth Date: 4/1/2021
Size: Currently 29 pounds but could be around 50 pounds when full grown (this is an estimate!)
Good With Kids: Unknown but most likely fine. He tends to be mouthy like a typical puppy but doesn’t bite.
Good With Cats: Unknown. Due to his age, he could learn to leave them alone. In the interim, his breed instincts may cause him to chase them
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: In progress
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Harley is reactive to tone of voice; he cowers at raised voices. Calm and quiet voices will keep him calm and responsive to you. Positive reinforcement is a must when training him. Aussies are very intelligent dogs and will require exercise and mental stimulation. He loves spending time with his people, taking a walk or snuggling on the couch. He will gaze at you adoringly when you’re making dinner, lay his head in your lap during quiet time, and expect hugs after a night in his crate.

Additional Information: Harley is learning to walk on a leash and is doing quite well. He does not appreciate the leash being attached to his collar; he requires a harness instead. He likes to steal clothes and shoes so be sure to keep these items picked up. Gently take the contraband and give him an acceptable toy instead.

Additional Information: Kipper is very friendly and loves to meet new people and most dogs. He also likes to chase cars so his new family will have to work very hard to teach him that chasing cars is a deadly hobby that needs to be eliminated.

Additional Information: Levi was adopted from us in June 2018. Levi’s world was turned upside down when his humans added a baby to the home. His family no longer had enough time for him so they returned him to us. This very smart boy knows a number of commands, including-sit, down, jump up, paw.

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.

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

Good With Cats: Unknown

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.

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.
