Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Evie, once a loving mama of 8 sweet pups, has matured into a gentle 4-year-old lady in love with life and in love with loving. Quite simply, she is worth her weight (50 pounds) in love. Her two favorite pastimes are generously doling out kisses and cuddling up close to her people as often as paws-ible. She never tires of either of these. Evie moves about slowly and humbly but her tail whips constantly from side to side almost doing 360 degrees before reversing again. She also has the most amazing smile or "submissive grin." For those who have never experienced this phenomenon, it's incredibly adorable. Evie smiles when her people come home. She smiles when she gets some loving and she smiles when she gets excited. Yet as sweet and smiley as she is, she is very nervous in new situations, during storms, and while traveling. Evie is not destructive or volatile, she just pants and drools until the experience ends and needs a patient family who can help her overcome or ride out these fears. Now in search of her forever home, Evie requires one with a privacy fence that is 5 feet or higher. Evie is a world class jumper but if Evie can’t see anything tempting to chase, she doesn't jump. But just imagine having this sweetheart jump up on your lap or your sofa for some snuggling and that’s another story altogether. Evie is fostered in Birmingham, AL but is willing to travel to nearby cities for her happily ever after. For more information about this special Mama Bear please contact info@forrescue.net and ask about adopting Evie and having her love you forever.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). ~~Bullet had the most perfect home that loved him dearly, but sadly tragedy struck and his owner passed away, leaving him and 5 others at the shelter waiting for a second chance. He is looking for a home to love him as he has been loved. He is a approximately a 4 year old Chihuahua mix that weighs about 17 pounds, who is housetrained, and loves nothing better than touching his person at all times. He is good with my kids, my cat, and my dogs of all sizes and doesn’t mind a ride in the car. His sweet personality demands a home with peace, love, and harmony – anything other is upsetting to him. Did I mention his cutest under bite that makes him look like he is grinning? If invited, he will gladly leap up in your arms from the ground. He needs a home who is willing to share their heart, lap, lips, and sometimes their dinner plate (as he has been accustomed to). Ideally, I’d love to see him go to a home of empty nesters or someone who is retired who can give him the attention he needs. Check out our slow motion video of him leaping into my daughter’s arms (you'll have to copy/past the link): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JF249mMEZU Bullet is located in Athens, AL. He is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations and is currently on heartworm and flea prevention. Want to start a conversation about him? Please fill out an application: http://forrescue.net/dog-application/ This doesn’t obligate you to anything, it’s just our way to help find the best fit.

      Breed: Lab-Pointer
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Pointer / Mixed (short coat). Lily has had a rough go of events. She was at the shelter with severe lick wounds on her front and back paws. After several rounds of medicine and physical therapy, xrays were done, and her front foot was too damaged for repair, and she ended up losing her front leg. Luckily, the back leg is healing nicely. Lily has not let that affect her personality or spirit. She loves to go on walks, playing tug-a-war, and cuddling on the couch. She is truly an inspiration to anyone that has to overcome challenges. She must be an only dog. Lily does get along great with her human family, ignores cats, is crated trained, and house broken. She is truly a great girl, with a low to medium energy level, and a beautiful smile!!

She is fostered in Huntsville, AL but is available for transport to other areas. She is up to date on vaccines, Heartworm negative and on prevention, microchipped and spayed.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). ~~Meet Bruno! Much like his name, he is BIG and Strong! But he also has a soft side and a past.. that he isnt telling us about. Bruno spent most of his life on a chain and neglected. He now craves attention. He gets so excited when he sees his favorite person that he hops about 3 feet off the ground. For this reason, he needs a TALL fence (about 6 ft). He is good with female dogs, and not great with cats. He LOVES his favorite chair, despite it being well used before he ever got it. He thinks he is the king of the world snuggled in at night in that chair. He is an awesome judge of character with a big personality. He has an intense fear of a hose pipe and does not like to be sprayed with water. He has been fostered in a kennel environment and will need some work with house training. But he is a smart boy and will learn quick. He may already have it mastered as he tries to hold it. Bruno would do best with a kind experienced owner. He is neutered, heartworm negative and up to date on vaccines. For more info email s_keegans@yahoo.com
