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: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Huntsville, AL
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). ~~Fancy Pants is just what you would expect out of a young fun girl. She is full of love and affection and energy. She loves to play and then loves to curl up on the couch with someone to take a naps and give kisses. She settles quickly. Fancy knows sit already, comes when called and is working on the stay command. She is food motivated and a quick learner. She is also vocal and likes to tell you when she wants something, this likely would cause problems in close living environments like an apartment. Fancy will do best in a home with a fence where she can burn off energy safely. However, she can climb and a 6 foot privacy fence is recommended for her safety and your peace of mind. Fancy Pants is good with other dogs and with bigger children. She is curious about the barn cats and thinks they want to play when they flee. However, she likely would be fine with supervision until she learns they are not toys. She is young and can be exuberant, so small children will need lots of supervision with her or she would do better with children over 6. Fancy pants has been fostered in a kennel environment despite thinking she should be in a castle like other queens. For this reason, she is not fully potty trained. However, with her intelligence, we think she would learn quickly. Fancy Pants is fostered in Huntsville, AL. She is up to date on vaccines, Heartworm negative and on prevention, microchipped and spayed. To apply for FancyPants go to www.forrescue.net/dog-application

      rescue
      Breed: Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Huntsville, AL
      Posted Breed: Bull Terrier / Mixed. Brewster came to us in what could have been his final hours. He was in bad shape, and had to be carried in and out of the house. After being fed and loved a lot, he's a new man!! If you want an over sized lap dog, that cuddles on the couch and snuggles at night, he's your guy. If you need a buddy to ride around with, or keep you company on walks, Brewster is there. He gets along great with dogs once he gets to know them, but would need a slow introduction. He lives with several cats, and several dogs, and he is great with them. He is gentle around kids, and loves all humans. Brewster will do best in a home with no other dogs where he can the center of attention. Brewster is house broken and crate trained. He is extremely strong when walking him, so he needs someone with experience in teaching him not to pull, and will only go to an experienced bully breed owner. Fostered in Huntsville AL. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, hw negative and on prevention

      Breed: Unknown-Whippet Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Huntsville, AL
      Posted Breed: Shetland Sheepdog Sheltie / Whippet / Mixed (short coat). ~~Jersey is a young dog whose life reminds me of a book called Fortunately that I used to read to my children when they were young. Fortunately, at one time Jersey had an owner. Unfortunately, she somehow got away from that owner and was on her own and was hit by a car. Fortunately, someone called animal services and they caught her and took her to the shelter. Unfortunately, her leg was badly broken and had to be amputated. Fortunately, her foster mom saw her picture and went to the shelter and picked her up. Unfortunately, her incision got infected. Fortunately, it finally healed. Unfortunately, Jersey's foster mom works and has to put her in a crate while she is gone, and Jersey doesn't like that at all. Fortunately, the vet has medicine to try to help her cope with her fear of the crate. Unfortunately, Jersey is still adjusting to the medicine and still doesn't enjoy her crate. Fortunately, her foster mom decided to go ahead and list her in hopes that just the right home is out there somewhere. Jersey is only 20 lbs and around a year old. Her leg was amputated in early December and she doesn't even miss it anymore. She can run like the wind at the dog park! Although she is very shy and timid with new humans, she warms up quickly, especially if the human gives her yummy treats! She LOVES other dogs (please watch the video of her playing with a golden retriever in her listing) and hopes to have another playful dog in her new home. She is good on a leash, house-trained, and loves cozy dog beds, stuffed squeaky toys and bones. She would love a home where she didn't need to be crated, perhaps with a doggy door so she could go outside whenever she wants. Could YOU be her final "fortunately"? Jersey is spayed, up-to-date on her immunizations, and is being fostered in Huntsville, Alabama. Email info@forrescue.net.

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Huntsville, AL
      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Bullie / Lab / Other.. we are not sure but we know she is Black and White ball of love! Cora is a playful, friendly, loving girl who loves to run,play and be affectionate, to include trying to hug you for kisses. She is very smart and food motivated. She comes when called and stays when told to do so. She is good with other dogs. However, she is cautious when meeting other large female dogs but has no hesitation with males. She is believed to be around 2-3 years old. She came to us very pregnant, raised 9 healthy puppies, that have since been adopted. She has not been around small children but may be too strong or playful for very small children. However, she is not hyper at all. She is currently being fostered in a "kennel" type environment, so will need work on potty training in a home. With her food motivation, her intelligence and her want to please her people; we think she will be a quick learner. It is this sweet girls turn. She is fostered in Huntsville, AL. She is spayed, utd on vaccines, microchipped and on heartworm prevention. Apply at www.forrescue.net/dog-application

      Sex: Male Male

      Location: Huntsville, AL
      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

      Location: Huntsville, AL
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). ~~These two brothers live up to their names because they are pure entertainment! They love to play and cuddle, both with each other and with their humans. Walt is the solid color and Disney has the brindle markings. They are 10 weeks old, we are estimating them to be a large breed. They get along great with other animals and do very well in their crate. Walt and Disney are doing fantastic at potty training but will need a little more time to perfect it. We would like to see these two stay together, but should do ok separated too. What joy these two little fellers will bring to you! They are absolutely adorable. Walt and Disney are fostered in Huntsville, Al. They are neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines. If you would like more information about either of these sweet boys, please email info@forrescue.net or apply directly at http://www.FORrescue.net/dog-application

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Huntsville, AL
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). ~~ Miss Delilah is looking for her very own family to love. This black beauty is a 50 lb lab x terror mix, around 10 months old. She loves to get snuggles, belly rubs, and give kisses. Delilah is all puppy and will need guidance, consistency, and understanding as she figures things out. Her foster family is already working with her but she will need to go to a home that will continue basic training with a puppy and build her confidence. She may do best in a home without very small children as she likes to jump up to get the attention of her humans for some love. Her foster family is working very hard on getting her to stay down but she just loves people and gets excited when she is around them. She is learning very fast and is eager to continue learning new things. She loves her toys and will play happily alone or with other playful dogs. She is crate trained and housetrained. She is also learning her leash manners. Delilah is fostered in Huntsville, AL but she is available for adoption in your area. She is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed and current on trifexis (heartworm prevention). If you are interested in this playful, happy puppy, please apply for Delilah at www.forrescue.net/dog- application. Once received, her foster mom will be in touch and can answer all of your questions

Pete is very shy but once you are on radar as trustworthy, he will love to snuggle with you. It is truly a special relationship when Pete opens himself up to you. He gets along well with other dogs and loves to play but might need some time to warm up to them. Pete is working on becoming more familiar with his leash. Pete is looking for an understanding and patient adopter who can see the shining star that he is! Email info@forrescue.net.
