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.

      Bessie

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). ~~Bessie is a young, female terrier mix between the age of one and two. She is full grown and about 20 pounds. Bessie’s personality fits the description of a typical terrier to a T. She is adorable, feisty, funny, energetic, lively, and incapable of being boring. She is smart and very receptive to training. She is good around young children. She tolerates the other dogs in her foster home but can sometimes be a little bit bossy. Bessie is very affectionate. She loves to cuddle and be petted. She seeks human companionship and will follow you everywhere. Terriers, in general, really benefit from exercise and mental stimulation. She enjoys exploring the yard but stays indoors most of the day while I am at work. Once exercised, she's calm and is content to chill and chew on a bone. She has a gentle nature. She enjoys walks on the leash but still needs work on her leash manners a bit. Bessie is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations. If you are interested in Bessie, please email info@FORrescue.net or fill out an application at: forrescue.net/dog-application

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). ~~Buster is a great boy with awesome potential. His previous owners left him tied up outside all his life. We know he is about 3.5 years old and about 77 pounds, even though his stressful upbringing has made him a little grey faced. Now Buster is ready for a forever loving home! He can be a little uncertain at times, but he warms up quickly. Because his previous owners never gave him attention or training he needs some work, but he wants to please you and never leave your side! He LOVES toys and playing fetch. He is a strong boy, but walks well with a gentle leader. He is also mostly house trained already (just needs training to tell you when he needs to go out to call him 100%). Buster wants a forever home with lots of toys and somebody to cuddle and live him! He will tap dance into your heart and SMILE at you every day if you give him a chance Buster has been neutered and fully vetted in June, treated for heartworms in July, and his foster home is working on training and keeping him on heartworm and flea/tick prevention.

      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed (short coat). ~~Bagel is every lovable Beagle quality rolled into one. This older man is always down to snuggle on the couch, but he's still got enough energy to chase a ball around the yard. He's a quirky, happy dude and he loves to frolic around the house just to be close to you. He doesn't mind being outside at all, he loves to use his nose of course, but also loves being around his people. He's an attention hound and pretends to be a lap dog. He's still learning some basic commands to show that old dogs can learn new tricks; he's very eager to please! Bagel had a little bit of rough go at life his first few years and deserve a warm place to land and track some good smells.

      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.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). ~~Max was turned into the shelter with a severe case of mange, and no hope. He has since recovered completely and has turned into a very active and loving little guy. When he's not curled up on the couch, he's running around playing. Max is great with dogs, cats, kids...you name it. He is house broken, crate trained, and is getting better with a leash. He would do best with and active family. His before and after transformation is remarkable!!

      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!!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Boxer / 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 with other dogs or with her person 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. Fancy will do best in a home with a fence. However, she can climb/jump so a 6 foot privacy fence is recommended for her safety and your peace of mind.

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.
