Posted Breed: Cattle Dog / Collie / Mixed (short coat). Cattle Dog Mix, Neutered male, 2.5 years old, 50 pounds Cowboy, 3 years old Neutered 47lb When you see me, you then understand what I am named Cowboy - I look just like a cute little cow. Unlike a lot of poor stray dogs, I used to have a family. Sadly, one day in early April, I was abandoned on the hill of a mountain when I was about five months old. I didn’t’ know what was going on and still faithfully waiting for my family to pick me up. After wandering there for a few days, I was hungry and exhausted. As I was feeling hopeless, two kind ladies spotted me and came to my rescue. Thankfully, I was cared for in a loving foster home and then put up for adoption. However, dogs like my size are not easy to be adopted since most people live in apartments and prefer dogs of smaller size. It is God’s blessing, though. My foster mom is not in a rush to find me home. Instead, she is very careful when choosing a home for her rescues because cases of dog abuse are reported often here. Besides, she doesn’t want me to be abandoned again. I am friendly to people even though I am shy at the beginning. Mom says my color makes me very special and beautiful and that I deserve a nice warm family to love and take care of me forever. I hope they find me soon because I’m just bursting to give someone all my love! Alpha_______ or submissive V Energy level: medium Does the dog get along with other dogs at home? Not every dog. He prefers mature and calm dogs and doesn’t like dogs that get too excited and wild .in a public place?

Can people touch the food in the bowl while the dog is eating? No problem at all Has the dog ever bitten anyone? Never Are there any red flags we should know?

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.

      Sex: Female Female

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Mountain Dog / Mixed. Lydia, spayed female, 8 months old, 29 Lbs. Meet Sweet Lydia . Hi, this is Lydia’s rescuer. I have encountered many rescues but was totally moved by Lydia and her sibling brother’s situation! The story started from an SOS post in a Facebook group. A picture showed two little puppies stayed next to some decayed small animals’ bones in an abandoned grave yard. One was licking the bones, another was just sitting still with a pair of dull eyes. Obviously these two little pups were trying to feed themselves with some rotten leftover from other strays’ hunt. The picture got many replies but didn’t see anyone dare to go over the grave yard and check. I had no idea how I got the courage, I left a message to the person who posted the picture and got the direction. It was ‘nowhere’, couldn’t even find the spot on GPS. However, I followed my instinct and finally got there. When I arrived, I was stunned and feeling so hopeless. The grave yard was so big that I didn’t know where to start seeking the pups. Maybe it was God’s will, after I searched over an hour, I finally spotted Lydia and her sibling lying next to a big grave stone. They were so tiny and skinny. When they saw me coming, amazingly, they ran toward me with happy wagging little tails. Immediately I handed them fresh food and water. They were thrilled to swallow everything in a second. After the feast, I put them in a crate and took them out of the spooky place. Not surprisingly, they both got many ticks and fleas all over their tiny bodies. The Vet gave them necessary shots and cleaned off all the fleas. Under a month medical care, Lydia and her sibling gained back weight to what they were supposed to be. The rough life seemed not to leave any trace in them. They are happy and cuddly. Lydia was born with a sweet nature. She is so friendly and mellow to meet most of creatures. She is very food motivated. Any one comes to her with treats will immediately becomes her buddy. Lydia also does very well with dogs. She is playful and easily merging into a gang. In fact, she likes to follow what other elder dogs do. That helps her learning commends easily at foster home. Lydia is also very good with foster cat. I guessed she thinks cats and dogs are same friendly creatures. However, if she overhears some strangers coming at the door, she’ll bark for warning. After she meets the strangers coming inside the house, she will initially come forward to make friends and check if there is any ‘treat’ for her. A naïve sweet pup like Lydia deserves a loving home. She is housebroken outside and inside on a potty pad, not a barker and with a clean bill of health.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Mountain Dog / Mixed. Sanny, 4 years old, spayed female, 27 Lbs. Meet Cuddly Sanny Hi, my name is Sanny. When I was a little pup, my native mommy left me and disappeared. I didn’t know how and where to find food. So I followed some human to go downhill to an open market and became a tray. Sometimes I got food from nice shop owners, but most of time I was suffering from hunger. About 10 month young, I accidentally got pregnant. A young lady found me in pregnancy, worried that I might not be able to deliver in a safe place. So she took me in the shop and offered me a warm, safe corner to deliver. Unfortunately, the lady’s boss discovered my presence; he called the animal control people to get me regardless I was about to give birth. Without any choice, the young lady started to call everyone she knew to give me a hand. Luckily, a rescuer answered her request and took me in. With my rescuer’s help, my babies were safely delivered and gradually got adopted. Since I have done a mother’s job, I guessed, it should be my term to find a forever home now. There was a person from an Organization coming to check on me. She claimed that she would find me a sweet home. I was thrilled and patiently waited for the day to come. Three years past, the person who said to help me just kept sending many of her rescued dogs to my foster home but never paid attention on me. During the years I saw many of her pups and dogs got great homes, but I am still here. Finally my foster daddy made up his mind not to count on this person anymore. He started to search if anyone knew the contact of AHAN Org. Very soon Auntie Jessamy came over to check on me. After a couple times of thorough behavior evaluations, she said I am a good and sweet girl. It’s a pity that she didn’t get to meet me sooner. She comforted me that AHAN will defiantly help me to find a loving home because I’m such a cuddly and well behaved doggie. So, here I am, finally get a chance to tell you my story. Although I don’t look as beautiful as those fluffy elegant doggies, I am kind and was born with a mellow nature. I never stop trusting human because I’ve got so much help and care from them. I might be a little scared of big dogs coming toward me roughly. But I learned to to walk away slowly. I enjoy being with people very much and likes snuggles. And if I know you are busy, I will simply stay next to you quietly. However, going out to a park is one of my favorites. I truly adore walking under the blue sky, the breeze and the joyful noise. I am housebroken outside, not a naughty chewer neither a barker. My foster dad takes very good care of me. So I have a clean bill of health. I’m hoping my destined family can find me here and take me home. If that day comes, it is worth waiting!

      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever / Husky. Caddy, neutered male, 17 months old, 66 Lbs. Meet Gentle Caddy. When Caddy was about 2 months young, he was abandoned in a field. No one knew how long he’d been there until he finally lost energy from hunger, lying on a small path. He was very skinny and small. An old lady couldn’t bear to leave him dying, she took him home, nursed him well. Caddy stayed with the old lady for over a year. Under intensive care, he grew up nicely and healthy. Though Caddy didn’t worry about being hungry again, he didn’t get any chance to walk out but only stay in the cottage. He was very friendly but timid to meet any stranger at that time. When the old lady’s daughter came back home visiting, she found Caddy to be very mellow and friendly and so decided to take him back to the city fostering. Under foster mom’s intensive training and encouragement, Caddy became more and more confident day after day. To help Caddy being more socialized, he gets to walk out on busy street everyday and meet lots of people and dogs in a park often. And now, Caddy can stay calmly when a stranger comes toward him. He might dodge a little when a stranger tries to pet him, but never shows any aggression. By making friend with him for awhile, he actually enjoys nice pets and cuddles. If you stay long enough to play with him, he will remember you and take you as a friend to cuddle next time when he meets you again. Caddy was born with a mellow nature. He is a very royal and gentle boy. After being with foster mommy for two weeks, he learned to trust people and started to follow her everywhere she goes. He is cautious to meet new dogs but always well behaves to make friends. He will join the gang to play when he is ready. Caddy chews sometimes if he gets bored. Slippers are his favorite. Therefore, if he doesn’t get enough exercise to walk out daily, he chews. Caddy is not a hyper or dominant type of dog, he is calm and quiet at home. He loves to stay with people. Before he adapts the new environment well, he might whine and howl a little with anxiety when left alone. But once he notices the family’s daily schedule, he adjusts well to wait for you to come home quietly. With Caddy’s size and age, he needs at least two times long daily walks, runs free outdoors often. He is now waiting for a family that is experienced with a shy dog and will love him as he is.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mountain Dog / Mixed (short coat). Beautiful, blind puppy looking for forever home! Surry, neutered male, 6 months old, 32Lbs. Surry was either abandoned very young or accidentally left motherless in the wild; with him there were three other siblings. He was the only male. All puppies, about 2.5 months old, were in extremely poor health condition, especially blind Surry, who had badly suffered from malnutrition that he got very thin hair. Months passed, Surry grew up strong and healthy, his body is covered with lovely wavy velvet brown hair, but he was defensive and friendless. Having difficulty to differentiate malice or goodwill while other puppies charging on him, Surry started to bluff and bluster by barking aloud to show his suspicions. The blind puppy shows great affection to his human but not to other puppies. He was always standing aside, "hearing” others play. Everything has changed, however, since the day the "Beauty" and the "Beast" met each other. At first, they avoided each other: Surry by growling and chasing, and Scarlett by sheltering herself in a crate. For many days, I had been trying to crate training Scarlett but in vain, nonetheless, Surry helped to accomplish it within ten minutes. When Scarlett came out of her crate and offered her favorite toy, a teddy bear, to Surry and invited him to play with her, I was totally overwhelmed by their new friendship. Since that day, they have become best friends. The beautiful girl leads her blind friend to explore everywhere in the house; while Surry , the grumpy boy follows his new friend searching high and low by smelling and tracing her position for guidance. So fortunate they have each other for companies! Inspired, I then pair them as "Beauty and the Beast", hoping their friendship can last as long as possible!

      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed. Meet Cheerful Kimi Kimi, spayed female, 6 months old, 24 Lbs. Kimi and her siblings were born at a private recycling field. The owner kept all puppies out without giving them any food and shelter. When Kimi and her siblings were discovered by a lady, she spotted plastic strings and pepper skin in their stool. Obviously they were fed by anything they could find in the junk. All of them were extremely skinny and unhealthy. But the owner refused to transfer them to a safer place. On a raining day, the lady worried these pups, she came back to check on them and saw Kimi and her siblings wagging their little tails sitting in the rain, hungry and cold, waiting to be fed. It made the lady heartbroken. Soon or later, these pups were going to be discarded or abused that no one would have had a chance to find them anymore, she told herself. Immediately she posted Kimi’s status online, hoping someone could help these poor pups with authority. Luckily we discovered the post and finally took them out of that horrible place, taking them to an animal hospital for necessary checkups and medical care. Under foster family’s care, Kimi becomes a super friendly, cuddly and energetic happy pup. She was born with sweet and goofy nature to bring lots of laugher. Though she is active and playful, she behaves well. Kimi likes doggie friends; they can play all day long. When she meets children, she is patient and sweet. Foster mommy trained Kimi well. She is housebroken, knowing demands to sit before getting food. She is a sweetheart who loves snuggles and now waiting for a family to cherish her, loving her as she is.

You see, my story is kind of long and sad because I have been transferring from a private shelter to one the other in pass 5 years, seeing no hope to end up a real, loving home… But now, AHAN Organization found me and took me out of the hopeless loop. Since then, my life has totally changed. Perhaps Fate wanted to temper my will. I was inspected a tumor on my left rear knee which would jeopardize my live. Despite having enormous unwillingness with sobs, auntie Jessamy had to sign my amputation surgical agreement to save my live. Several weeks past, my physical conditions got better and better every day. I adjust very well to walk and jog with 3 legs and finding no problem with my daily activity. After necessary hospitalization, all my doggie and kitty friends at foster home welcomed me home as usual.

How wonderful these people are, I am so glad that God has not forgotten me and gratefully I was born with optimistic, submissive and sweet nature. I just wish one day, my special family would come online seeing me, knowing that I’m here waiting for them to take me home. When the time comes, I’ll give them all my love and the sweetest smile to treasure the miracle of having a loving home.

      Posted Breed: Dutch Shepherd / Mountain Dog / Mixed. Meet Sweet Angie Angie, spayed female, 3 years, 42 Lbs. Hi, my name is Angie. Thank you for reading my story. Well, at first, I wasn’t on the list to be rescued out of the street. Some rescuers found my baby whining in a bush when I was out looking for food to nurse him. That was a long day for me…. because after I came back to my baby, he was gone. I went crazy and tried so hard to look for him days after days. He was too young and still in nursing. I worried so much that some other strays might hurt him ‘cause they always came checking on us from time to time trying to bully us. If I wasn’t too hungry that day, I wouldn’t have had left him in the bush. I was in great sorrow! Few days later, the rescuers showed up again. They immediately found me and took me away. Though I didn’t know where I would be taken to, there was no reason for me to stay there after my baby was gone anyway. Without any hesitation, I decided to follow them. Very soon, I was taken to an animal hospital. A nice nurse bathed me well. A vet gave me all necessary physical checkups and took me to a kennel. With great surprise, I spotted my baby in the kennel whining for milk. I was thrilled and so grateful these people came back for me. Few weeks later after my baby needing no more nursing, we were transferred to different foster homes. Though we couldn’t be together, I didn’t worry much this time because I knew he would be in great care as I would. To help me being more socialized, I stay with auntie Jessamy for basic obedience training and fostering. At first I was not quite comfortable being with other foster dogs. My bad memory kept reminding me those rough days on street to be bullied by other strays. So I cautiously kept a distance from other dogs. My foster mommy is truly very kind. She encouraged me to make friends with other foster dogs and in fact, they were all very friendly to welcome me joining in. Every day I get to walk out meeting many people and dogs. I finally feel so much relieved and become more and more confident every day. I truly like to be with people. Since the day I was rescued, every human being I met was so nice to me. With dogs. I have totally got over my fear of meeting them. I maybe a little shy to meet a new dog or some strangers coming toward me initially, but very soon, I am able to make friends for nice pets. If I don’t feel quite interested joining a play. I’ll simply walk away or stay quietly without bothering anyone. I really enjoy staying out in a patio or a big park, the breeze and green smell always make me very relaxed and happy. I am a well behaved, mellow and affectionate doggie with a clean bill of health. Now it’s time for me to find my own home. If you’d like to have a calm, sweet, cuddly and quiet doggie at home that also enjoys outdoor activities, you might want to consider me as the best friend. My name is Angie. I am a well behaved good doggie. Please visit www.ahan.org to view more “Angie’s” videos, click “APPLY” to fill out online application. Thank you again for reading my story!
