Posted Breed: Black and Tan Coonhound / Doberman Pinscher / Mixed (short coat). May’s Woof-Facts Adores people and is amazing with children - great family girl Perfect balance of playfulness and cuddle-bug Practices ideal household etiquette Prefers to be the only pet in the home Some Things About May Hi y’all, my name is Mayberry – but they call me May for short. We think the nickname May is just darling, so we are sticking to it. I’m a 5-year-old, 60-lb hound mix, who has an irresistible smile. I’m as pretty and well-mannered as a debutante. And I love being around people and will be a great fit for a home that has children. I’m described as having the perfect energy level. With an equal admiration of playing and snuggling, I make sure that my day is balanced with them both. May’s Background So I’m FernDog’s exclusive Southern gal! I was rescued from a high-kill shelter in rural Georgia, where I was a volunteer favorite. I’m small town girl who was found as a stray, roaming those old country roads by my lonesome. When the shelter became full and my future was uncertain, FernDog gave me the gift of a new life -- bless their heart! It seems like I had a family of my own in my past, as I was spayed when I ended up at the shelter, but we’re not sure what happened. Great thing is, this made it very easy for me to adjust to my new FernDog foster family, and I’ve been winning everyone over in the Northeast with my Southern Hospitality ever since. Here’s What My Foster Family Says About Me I’ve truly bonded with my foster family. Adoringly, they say that sometimes I like to invade their personal space -- in a precious way, of course, which they truly enjoy. I LOVE all people! And I am AMAZING with children! When the kids are playing, running around and making noise (like kids do), it doesn’t bother me one bit – I just stay calm and simply CHERISH them. I walk nicely on a leash but can get a bit excited when I see another doggie. I do currently live with two dogs in my foster home, and I enjoy their companionship. In my forever home though, I’d prefer to be the only canine in the house (this way, you’ll only have one space invader (lick-lick). Having a fenced-in yard for fun and frolic would be just my icing on the cake. When I get super enthusiastic, I use all the will-power I have to keep all four of my paws on the ground, and I act like a perfect lady. And when I receive a compliment, I beam with a respectable pride! My foster mom thinks this Southern Charmer may have even taken ballet lessons while living down south because whenever she brings me my meals, I do these adorable 360-degree spins with incredible finesse (woof-woof). May’s Forever Family Are you ready to have this Southern Belle become part of your family? I promise to make your heart go pit-a-pat every day! Finding my forever home would make me so ecstatic, that I’d show you my ballet spins, keeping all four of my paws on the ground, while looking into your eyes and beaming with pride! Please contact FernDog if you’d like to see a preview of my performance!

We currently do not have detailed information for this breed. If you would like to provide such information, you can do it here:

Request to Add a New Breed
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.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Domino’s Woof-Facts: * URGENT FOSTER HOME NEEDED Male, mixed breed, ~3 years old, and 75 lbs Fun and enthusiastic fella; active yet controlled lifestyle would be ideal Sits well, gives paw, walks great on a leash (watch my video!) Needs person who’s ready to provide continued training and socialization; he’s a smart boy who loves to learn Housebroken and crate trained Quick introduction of Domino Oh-oh Domino here! How ya doin’? I’m real good! Much better now that the Rescue Haven volunteers are giving me this crazy little thing called love every day and giving me the opportunity to learn new things each and every day! Read on to learn more about me…. Domino’s Background I don’t like to dwell on my past, but here it is really quick. I was found all by myself in the basement of an abandoned house in an inner-city. Some neighbors saw me there and were throwing food through a window for about a month. Then some construction workers saw me and quickly took action. They contacted Rescue Haven, and I was immediately rescued and brought to their partner animal hospital. To everyone’s surprise, I was in excellent health! I was overly energetic, and since then I’ve been learning how to maintain my zest for life without going over the top, ya know what I mean? Living with Domino For the first few months with Rescue Haven, I was living in boarding. This was okay for the short-term, but after a while I became stressed because I needed to get out and exercise, and get my mind active! Lucky for me, Rescue Haven arranged for me to go to 7 weeks of school! The trainers there taught me how to focus (even around exciting distractions!) and keep me from getting overly stimulated. They loved me but were also firm with me and that kind of training worked extremely well for me. They even used a prong collar in a professional and compassionate manner and, again, that worked very well for me. My future home will have the benefit of being in touch with my awesome trainers so that they can teach you how to be consistent with my training so that I will continue being a stellar student! Domino’s Forever Home I am looking for someone who will follow instructions when it comes to my learning, so that I can continue thriving as I have been in school. I could possibly go to a home with other dogs but, again, following instructions to ensure a good transition would be a must – that might even mean some separation from the other dog but hey since I’m crate trained that shouldn’t be a big deal, right? I am blossoming into an awesome dog (not to brag or anything) so my future family has the opportunity to take all of the credit by continuing my training! C’mon, don’t you want my smiley face in your home?

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Maltese (medium coat). Owen’s Woof-Facts: Male, maltese, 10 yrs old, 12 lbs Sweet boy who loves to be up-close and personal with his human Favorite thing — his blankie! A quiet home and loving human is ideal; a small and shy senior so adult home is preferred Living in foster home with two other dogs; would prefer being the only canine (keeping all the snuggles for him) Crate-trained; housebroken with an occasional morning accident (happens to the best of us) Walks fairly well on leash; enjoys the activity, exploration and smells Training is recommended to help him with some of his uneasiness Quick Introduction to Owen Good day, I’m Owen, and it’s a pleasure to e-meet you! My foster mom says there are SO many things about me that put a smile on her face, and I’m going to tell you about a few. First, I love to snuggle – I’ll even get under the blanket so I can get as close as possible. Second, during these cuddling sessions, I’ll reach out and touch my foster mom’s hand (hand-to-paw action). What can I say, I’m a gentlemen who still loves holding hands (it’s a lost art, don’t you think?)! Third, I’ll put myself out there showing you an even more vulnerable side… do you remember Linus from Charlie Brown and the fact he always carried his blanket with him? I HAVE a blankie too, and I LOVE it! At night when in my crate, I gather it up and sometimes even suckle on it (like a baby or a little kitty) – it brings me comfort, and my foster mom thinks it’s absolutely precious! I want to mention that I can be a bit shy at first and uncomfortable in new situations, but don’t let that fool you… once we become compadres, they’ll be no place I’d rather be than right by your side (along with my blankie)! Owen’s Background My previous owner brought me to an inner-city shelter when she could no longer care for me for one reason or another. Then Hurricane Harvey hit, and the shelter was trying to make room so they could help some of the affected dogs that needed to be transported up from Texas. That’s when Rescue Haven was contacted for help, and soon I was on my way to a newfound life. My beautiful white hair was terribly matted and was dirty, so Rescue Haven gave me a needed makeover, and now I’m as debonair as ever! Owen’s Typical Day in Foster Home We start our day with a morning walk, along with my two furry foster brothers. I enjoy the strolls, the smells, and the sights. We have breakfast when we get home, and I sit patiently while my foster mom gets my food ready – I like to show her that I’m such a good chap! I then settle into my crate while she gets ready for work – we leave the crate door open, and I go in on my own accord. When she goes to work, I spend time in my comfy bed in the kitchen, lounging around until the dog walker comes. I’ll admit, I was a little scared of him at first, but now we are buddies, and I actually look forward to his visits. When my foster mom gets home from work, I’m so excited – I jump up and down just to prove it to her! We’ll all go out for another walk and to do our business, just prior to eating dinner. As the evening rolls in, it’s my favorite time, and I’m sure you can surmise why… snuggle-time, watching TV with my favorite lady in my world! Then when it’s time to call it an evening, like the true gentlemen I am, I walk right into my crate for a good night’s rest, with my blankie close by. Living with Owen As mentioned before, I currently live in my foster home with two small dogs. I spend time with them on our walks and in the house, and I do OK. I can get a little jealous when they’re getting the attention, so, quite frankly, I’d prefer to be the only dog in my forever home, getting all the attention myself. I am timid and can get scared when new people come to the house, more so with men for some reason. It takes me some time to trust and get comfortable. Therefore, an adult home with a patient human would be ideal – working through these things together so I can feel more at ease. On our walks, I’ve shown no signs of being reactive to any of the animals I’ve met. I haven’t been in contact with any felines so as of yet have not been evaluated in that situation. Owen’s Medical Rescue Haven brought me to their vet for an examination, and no major medical issues were found — music to my ears. I do have a heart murmur that we will monitor. Owen’s Ideal Forever Home In closing, I’d like to sing you a song which has true meaning to me: “Oh please say to me, you’ll let me be your man, and please say to me, you’ll let me hold your hand, now, let me hold your hand, I want to hold your hand.” So, what do you think? Could you be my loving forever person who I can make smile every day, while we cuddle real close, hold hands, and watch me as I interact with my blankie? Do you have the lifestyle that enables you to be home often and the desire to help me learn to be comfortable in situations that have been uneasy for me? If you’ve liked all that you’ve read and say “yes” to the home environment I need, please fill out an adoption application with Rescue Haven Foundation and ask for Owen, the best cuddle buddy ever!

Griffin’s Woof-Facts Male, pointer/bull terrier-mix, approximately 3 yrs old, 65 lbsUrgently needs a foster and forever homeExuberates happiness; friendly to every person he meets; kisses and hugs, most def!Handsome as heck, oh my!Tons of fun! Tons of energy! Tons of love!Longs to by you one and only!Shows off his commands like a rock star!   Quick Introduction to Griffin Hey there, I’m Griffin, and you can call me Griff if you’d like (that’s what all my peeps call me)! I’m currently in need of a foster home and a forever home, so I’m here to let you know more about me so we can make that happen! I’ve been in boarding at this wonderful full service pet center called K9 Nanni (k9nanni.com), and they are taking amazing care of me. They’ve come to find that I’m a great doggie guest! I love all the people I meet, enjoy going on our walks, and keep a very clean kennel. Despite all this good stuff, I’m really looking for a foster or forever home so I can have a place of my own to call “home” and be the center of someone’s universe!   As we all can see, I’m one handsome doggie. But keep in mind, I’m not one of those shallow guys who’s all fluff and no stuff. I have a lot of depth that goes along with this George Clooney exterior. If I were a human, I could see women describing me as “the guy they’ve been waiting for all their lives” or telling their friends that I’m “boyfriend material”. And here are some of the reasons why…   I’m open and accepting, pretty much right off the bat. I’m happy and truly love life. I’m friendly to people, one and all. I love hugs and kisses (giving and getting). I’m smart. I respond well to training – just make sure to give me a little praise, and I’m all yours! When I’m with you, I’m not distracted (like thinking of my fantasy football league or something). I am always present in the moment. And I’m very comfortable making eye contact. When I look at you, it’s like I’ve known you forever.     Griff’s Foster or Forever Home So after reading this quick synopsis of me, what do you think? Seriously, how can you resist? A guy like me may only come around once in a lifetime. Do you think I’m your Mr. Right? If so, and you’d like to welcome me into your home for a foster or forever situation, please contact Rescue Haven as soon as possible and fill out an adoption application. Make sure to let them know that you’re asking about Griff, the soon-to-be center of your universe!

Baby Boy’s Woof-Facts Male, staffy-blend, approximately 3 ½ years old, 45 lbs Absolutely loves little dogs; gets along well with cats; learning to be comfortable around big dogs Happy go lucky and sweet boy — loves women, currently a wee-bit nervous around men Crate-trained and house-broken Super smart — listens well, knows some commands, needs to continue with his training Super affectionate – enjoys both giving and receiving Had a really rough past; this is the beginning of his rebirth into a great future — needs someone to give him his chance for the life he truly deserves Loves activity like walking, running, and playing – things all new to him Quick Introduction to Our Baby Boy Hi, my name is “Baby Boy”, and even though that name may have a common feel to it, I’ll tell you this — I’m not at all a commoner – I’m one exceptional dog! And I’m not a baby either — I’m actually a 3 ½-year- old, well-behaved boy on the path of learning how to be a perfect gentlemen. (PS: I actually got my name because my rescuer felt I was as sweet as a baby.) I’ll let you know that I had a really rough past, and now, thanks to a Good Samaritan who literally saved me from a terrible situation, I’m starting my life all over again. So this is my official birth announcement, as I feel I’ve been born again. And even though I’m actually not a baby, I’m excitingly learning what the good life has to offer me, and I feel like I’ve been born again — being loved and cared for; going on walks, runs, and to the park; and SQUEAKY TOYS, OH BOY, WHAT A JOY! I have so much love to give, and I’m looking for my forever mamma or dadda (or both) to help me adjust to my newfound life, provide me with the love and care I absolutely deserve, and for us to have the opportunity to become completely goo-goo-ga-ga over each other, forever and ever! This Baby Boy is here to tell you my story. But first, make sure to watch my most precious video – it’s me and my Chihuahua foster sibling, already goo-goo-ga-ga over each other – I’m sure it will make you coo just like a happy baby! Baby Boy’s Background I’m so thankful that a Good Samaritan happened to cross my path while she travelled through the big inner-city where I resided prior. She saw that my living situation was tragic, and she didn’t turn a blind eye. She took action and got me out of harm’s way so this braveheart could experience a future filled with only happiness. You see, I lived my life chained up outside. I was only 24 pounds upon my rescue –only a skeleton of where I should be – and one of my paw pads was missing. Please know that, although I’ve come from a difficult background, to say the least, I’ve actually come around really well in only a short period of time, and it’s only getting better. Welcome to my rebirth, the start of my journey to a lifetime of joy! Baby Boy’s Typical Day in His New Temporary Home I’m currently living with the Good Samaritan who saved me – I call her my Rescue Mamma! It’s only been a few weeks since we’ve been together, and she says I’m already doing great! She has a couple of jobs and works different shifts, and I’ve adjusted to her schedule real quickly. When she’s home, I have free roam of the house, along with the other small doggies that I currently live with. I love those little critters, and I’m told I’m very tender and caring with them. When Rescue Mamma is at work, I stay in my crate like a really good boy – I like my crate and go right in it when she tells me to. I’m eating well and have gained the weight I’ve needed (I’m now up to 45 lbs – YAY). {Betty, did he go from 24 to 45 lbs in only three weeks?} When we are home, we all hang out on the couch, play, and give and receive our combined lovin’. We also go on walks and to the park – I really enjoy experiencing these things, and getting regular exercise is great for me as I like the activity. I’m so happy to be learning all about what life actually feels like being with amazing people and affectionate furry friends in a wonderful home-life situation. Baby Boy’s Medical I’m neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, and have received treatment for my injured paw. It felt so good to finally receive proper medical care. My pediatrician (oh, I mean my veterinarian – hee-hee) told me that I was very friendly and such a good boy while he was caring for me. I’m all healed up and ready-to-go to my forever home. Oh, I’m missing my two front teeth, but that doesn’t trouble me in the least. They weren’t my baby teeth, they were my big-boy teeth – but I still eat my food plenty okie dokie without them! Living with Baby Boy As mentioned previously, I love small dogs, and I get along well with cats. I’m a ladies man, as I especially love women! I’m a wee-bit nervous around men, and I’m learning to be more comfortable amongst large dogs — we are working on these things and making progress. My Rescue Mamma hasn’t seen me around children yet because she doesn’t have any little humans in the home – her children are adult-age, and I get along well with them — but we can have me evaluated in that situation and let you know – check back for an update! Baby Boy’s Forever Home As you’ve read, I have so much love to give, and I’m ready to look for my forever parent(s) who will love and care for me all around… continue to teach me things, take me on walks and hikes, engage in playtime together, and help me adjust to my rebirth into this miraculous new life! If you become my lucky parent(s), Rescue Haven’s volunteers will make an announcement kind of like this: “Congratulations on your new Baby Boy!” And instead of handing out baby rattles and cigars, we can give out Kong’s and yummy doggie treats in celebration of “ME”, your bundle of joy. And I promise, you won’t have to do that baby-talk thing with me… (but, if you insist, I really won’t mind, goo-goo-ga-ga, such a good boy)! Please fill out an application with Rescue Haven, and make sure you put my name, Baby Boy, on the birth certificate (woof)!

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Spring’s Woof-Facts Female, mixed breed, 8 years old, 55 lbs Triple-A-Amazing: Affectionate, Athletic, Academic Buddha-belly rubs a MUST! Well-behaved, housebroken, knows many commands; prefers having free roam of designated area of house but can stay in her crate if needed Does well with other dogs of comparable size with slow introductions; no cats or small animals A home with teenagers is recommended as fast movements of younger kids can cause her to be confused and bark a bit Quick Introduction to Spring Spring is always in the air when I’m by your side, and that’s because my name is actually Spring! I’m a really good girl, and when I say that, it’s not just smoke and mirrors — I’ve been the recipient of a Good Citizens Certificate. But don’t fret, I’m not just a boring goody-two-shoes. I have a spunky and goofy side too. You know that song, “Sunshine in my eyes, makes me happy” – well those lyrics really speak to me. Sometimes, when my foster family is cleaning the house, they’ll peak around to see what I’m doing, and they’ll find me in my bed, in the upside-down position on my back, basking in the sun – feels so radiant! At night, when my foster family is relaxing on the couch, I make it a point to flop myself on my back and then rest my head right on their legs – my sign for “belly rubs please!” Oh, and I guess you can tell that I’m somewhat or a back-sleeper! So please read on to learn more about my sunny-side-up-self. Spring’s Background I lived in a home with my incredibly loving human mommy and my canine boyfriend for several years – she had rescued me from a shelter, and I was living the good life! Then my world was completely turned upside down when my mom suddenly passed away and I lost my canine pal too. At first, I didn’t understand what was really happening. My mom’s family helped me through a transition process, and little by little they explained everything to me. I stayed in our home, and one family member would visit me every day to take care of me, while simultaneously trying to find me a new forever family. After months of waiting, there was no sign of a new family for me (terribly sad!). Rescue Haven stepped right in, and a miracle happened – they had a foster family who was willing to move into my house in order to care for me. And they promised to find me a forever home. My deceased mom’s prayers were answered when this happened, I know that for sure! Spring’s Typical Day in Foster Home I guess you can say I’m a morning person – I wake up raring to go! The first thing I do is give my foster family a big smile – in doggie language, that’s my way of communicating a delightful “GOOD MORNING!” Next, I eat my breakfast with gusto, and then it’s time for our morning walk — I truly enjoy getting fresh air on our walks and exploring the world around me. When we return, I lounge around while my foster family gets ready for work and school. I know my beloved mom who crossed over the rainbow bridge is looking down on me with relief and pure joy that I am living a wonderful life together with my foster parents. After a long day of work and school, I greet my foster family at the door upon their return with a tail wagging with glee. Once they settle in, I shower them with lots of hugs and kisses before venturing out for our second walk of the day – I love our walks! When we return and after I eat my dinner, I sit with my human foster brother while his mom and I help him with his homework. I’ve gotten straight A’s for knowing my commands, so why not try to help my li’l bro with his homework — makes perfect sense to me! Then one more walk of the day before night-time cuddles and nighty-night. I have to say that by living with my foster family after several months of uncertainty, I can now rest my head peacefully. Living with Spring I live with my foster mom and dad, and a super-cool 5-year-old human foster brother. Through the process of slow introductions, it seems I’d do well in a home with another dog about my size or larger, who is well socialized. The fast movement of little kids can confuse me and cause me to bark a bit so it’s best to not go in that direction. However, we feel I’d thrive in a home with teenagers, so that could be an awesome experience for all of us! I do have this thing for chasing squirrels and small animals, so a home with no cats or small animals is the way to go. Spring’s Medical I’m one of the spunkiest 8-year-old doggies you’ll meet, and my health is tip-top! I’m accustomed to a K/O diet, eating the yummy Zignature Kangaroo brand. Spring’s Forever Home Spring is always in the air when you’re with me! I’ll bring all kinds of warmth to your life with my sunny-side-up personality! My morning-person gusto will kick-off each day with pure joy. I love to walk, love to play, love to learn and love to love. Sounds like the perfect combination! Will you be the one to make my dreams (and my deceased mom’s) come true by giving me a forever home? I sure hope so! If you feel we’re the perfect combination, love plus me and you, please fill out an adoption application with Rescue Haven Foundation.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). As I started saying, I came from a very unhappy and unhealthy situation where I wasn’t taken care of at all. It was the recent animal hoarding case in Hopatcong, NJ– you may have heard about it. I was rescued amongst 46 other dogs. It was such a huge relief to get out of that environment when FernDog took me and some of my furry housemates under their wing (one other dog they rescued, we think is my daughter, Chickpea — we look a lot alike and are both super-cute). FernDog had a DNA test done for me, and it showed that I’m part staffie, part sheltie, and a 50 percent mix of some others. Now, even though I’m still very afraid of a lot of things given my background, I also have a peace and happiness about me, knowing that I am safe and on my way to a life filled with good health, great care and loving people. Kale in his Foster Home I’ve recently been living in a foster home, and I’ve already fallen in love with my foster mom. I feel so good when I’m right by her side, and I like to give her my affection, with cuddles and sweet kisses. I’m learning to be comfortable with the other humans in my household and those who come to visit. I’m adjusting to it all, as it’s a work-in-progress. My foster mom says it’s heartwarming to see me beginning to trust new people more and more. I have canine companions in my foster home too, and I’m so happy to have these furry friends around me every day. I learn from them, and they seem to give me the additional confidence that I need as I adjust to my new life and my foster home. I’m learning how to play with them, we go on walks together, and I even take afternoon naps with them sometimes (by the way, I do have my own bed, but at times it’s just more cozy to share a bed with one of my furry pack members). I’m learning commands quickly; I’m just about housebroken; and I’ll do just about anything for a yummy treat (how did I go through the first three years of my life without them!). My walking-on-a-leash skills are good; I love to run and play fetch, and I get so much joy when my foster mom takes me in the yard, so I can run around and play. It was a first for me to feel the wind in my face and the grass at my feet, and it was totally awesome! My little curly tail wags more often each day as I move ahead with my progress. As you can tell, my new world is so exciting, but everything is very new. Therefore, I need an understanding and dedicated owner and household, who can continue to lead me into a life of learning, adjusting and moving forward – we’ll be in this work-in-progress together, building a wonderful forever! Living with Kale I’ve only been in a foster home for a short while, so we’ll tell you what we know so far and then add to this as time progresses. I like other dogs and would seem to thrive in a home with furry siblings, as they can help show me the way. I need a cat-free home, and at this point we think a home without children is preferred. As far as my forever person, I’ll need an experienced dog owner who is committed to my ongoing training so I can continue to learn more things about this great new world and understand how I fit into the whole picture. A home environment with a fenced-in yard would be ideal so we can run and play and get additional exercise together. And great news, FernDog training support is available by phone or face-to-face (depending on the adopters location) by our certified volunteer dog trainers Medical Needs FernDog brought me to their awesome vet right after my rescue to make sure my medical needs were taken care of. I was a good boy there, and I was neutered so that’s behind me. I am taking some anti-anxiety medication to help me assimilate into my new life. We find this also assists me with my progress in training and has been a helpful tool. It may simply be a temporary need until I adjust more fully to my new routine. Kale’s Forever Home Could I be your little wonder, your sidekick? I’m an incredibly deserving dog who desires to move away from my past and thoroughly embrace the present as well as the future with someone who understands me and realizes that life is a work-in-progress for us all. Are you my angel, the one who is the perfect match to take this journey with me… someone who will make the commitment of showing me the way? If so, please contact FernDog. I’ll surely be your faithful and loving companion, dedicated to you — now and forever. Neither of us will ever be lonely and unloved again.
