Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. FOSTER HOME NEEDED Statistics Name: Gretta Breed: Shepard Mix Age: 6.5 Years Size: Large 65 lbs. ~Large range: 60 - 100 lbs. Adoption Donation: $75 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Spayed female, vaccinations current, microchip, needs to be the only pet in her adoptive home, Not apartment friendly, Needs to be in a fenced in yard, No Children Gretta is a long legged beauty who loves to go for long walks and snuggle in front of the TV - Won't you give her a chance? Foster Home Feedback * No other Pets in home; Not Apartment Friendly; No Children; Needs a Fenced in Yard ~Gretta is nervous around new people-- adopters should be aware of when their company is coming so that precautions can be made to crate Gretta or take steps to introduce her to strangers in a positive way (We'll show you how!). A quiet home without a lot of people coming/going would be best for Gretta. 10/2/17 Volunteer Feedback: MOST IMPROVED Award goes out to Miss Gretta! She has improved so much since I first met her in January. She walked nicely in the park, catching herself immediately upon reacting to a passerby right alongside us. When bringing her back to the shelter, she fell into my arms, eyes filling up with tears. Gretta's such a smart, affectionate gal! She so deserves a home to call her very own! 8/22/17 Volunteer Feedback: Hey there! Gretta here! I have been going a little stir crazy at the shelter. It seems like I have been here for soooo long. There are many nice volunteers that come to pal around with me, feed and pet me; some even come to take me on outings. I get frightened easily so we generally try to stay away from situations where I could get spooked. Last weekend I got to watch bicycles from a distance and eat yummy treats with whispers of being such a good girl. I am learning that not everything is scary! It was really fun laying in the sunshine with grass tickling my belly. Riding in the car was a hoot as well and I hate to brag but I am so well behaved in the car, you will probably let me drive, really! The volunteer mentioned how my behavior in the car reminded him of how good I am in a kennel. I think the volunteers get really sad when they have to leave me at the shelter. I know many of them have grown to love me and I really appreciate them, but I NEED at least one human to myself! I have more love than I am able to give! Help me out here; help me get a forever home! 7/10/17 Volunteer Feedback: Gretta has come so, so, so far. She melts my heart and is my favorite part about going to my shifts as a building volunteer. I am so incredibly impressed with her. She has sadly lived at the building for so long, and even still, has done SO well with her training. On our walk yesterday, Gretta did not even flinch at the cars passing by, she just kept on walking and sniffing her grass. The only time she was fearful was when a massive, loud semi-truck came out of nowhere, and I don't blame her, it scared me too! She corrected herself immediately after this happened and went back to walking as if nothing occurred. She is so playful and loving; I have sooooo much fun working with her. Gretta is so well-behaved and absolutely loves listening to you and working to make you proud. Her favorite thing to do when we're in the backyard together is "hide her favorite ball" (behind the same rocks in the corner, every time) coming to find me, show me that her ball is gone, then un-hide it like a magic trick - she gets so happy at my "WOW!" reaction. Gretta is so funny and smart. Please give this sweet girl a chance. She has been living at the shelter for far too long and does even better in a home. Gretta has endless amounts of love to give, as all volunteers have noticed. We love her so much and hope you will too! 6/23/17 Volunteer Feedback: Gretta did awesome visiting today! She was once again, well mannered. She LOVES to play ball in the yard and enjoy the sunshine. This pretty lady needs to be in a loving home so badly! Gretta is progressing so much! When leaving our home back to the shelter, we encountered a loose dog next door. Gretta just looked and never even bothered with the dog. #homeforGrettaplease 4/30/17 Volunteer Feedback: I have Gretta over at our home about once a week. We have had many dogs in our lives, however, Gretta is truly the one with the most lovable personality we have ever witnessed. As you can see by her pictures, she has come a long way! I see a much happier, joyful girl! She met a contractor doing work at our home and greeted him warmly, wagging her tail in excitement. He instantly fell in love with Gretta. Gretta has the best manners of any dog I have ever seen. She listens upon command. I have only witnessed her react a couple times when she is away from the shelter. Once when a person was walking right up to our car in the Walmart parking lot. She immediately redirected herself while I patted her on the back, looking back at me with the utmost confidence. She plays fetch in our backyard that backs up to a golf course, watching many golfers and carts buzz by. Not a peep out of her! We recently had her on a walk and from a distance, a couple dogs were loose. She briefly looked at them as we diverted her in another direction and went along our merrier way. I believe she is doing everything she can now to find a home of her very own! I see her confidence continue to build each time she visits. Take the time to come meet her, you will immediately fall in love with this charming beauty! 4/8/17 Volunteer Feedback: What a wonderful girl Miss Gretta is! I know from seeing that she does not like other animals on her profile that it can be a little disheartening, especially after you see how beautiful she is. However, while this is an important thing to note, don't let it stop you from learning more about her first. I have a dog who is not always dog-friendly so I thought I would share things that work for us because some things can be concerning when looking into a dog with some small issues. If you're concerned about going to the vet with her? Advise your vet office you have a dog who is not dog-friendly. They will let you into a room right away to wait and help you leave when the office is empty. Concerned about going for a walk where you might run into other dogs? Don't walk during peak times. We often walk during the day, over dinner time, or later in the evening when there aren't so many people out and about. Gretta would also be a great candidate to learn how to walk on a treadmill. Concerned about what to do if you go out of town? There are affordable pet sitters who come into your home to care for your dog to avoid the stress of being in a kennel. We've had great luck with many in town. Concerned about her meeting new people? Kennel her if you are unsure of your company and her getting along. Or help her with slow and positive introductions. Gretta is very treat motivated and has come a long way with the help of some great volunteers. Gretta loves to play fetch, chew on bones on the couch, give very nice kisses, and get belly rubs. She is such a sweet and loving girl who I have so enjoyed getting to spend time with. If you're interested in Gretta or have more questions please fill out an application and consider giving her the loving home she so deserves. 2/21/17 Volunteer Feedback: How has this lady not found her forever home yet?! Just LOOK at her...she is adorable, well-mannered, just a perfect one and only companion. Gretta enjoys her exercise but she is perfectly capable of being lazy as well. Gretta has been at 4 Luv's shelter for some time now. Although, us volunteers give her as much love as humanly possible (and I mean a lot of love since she has gained some weight)! Gretta DESERVES a home, where she can receive endless amounts of love because that's what she deserves. Her eyes captivate you. You can see her soul and how she desperately wants to find her person. Give this lady a chance, I promise you won't regret it. 1/26/17 Volunteer Feedback: I had Gretta over for a building break and she was very well mannered. She couldn't stop wagging her tail! She loves treats and playing ball. She will keep dropping the ball in your lap. She isn't a high energy dog. She even walked into a warm shower and loved being dried off with a towel! She is very easy to please. We did a slow intro and she was fine meeting my husband. If you have no dogs, she would love to cuddle with you! 1/4/17 Volunteer Feedback: This girl is the absolute sweetest dog! I am a building volunteer and have always enjoyed my shifts with Gretta and recently I have been taking her for kennel breaks and am falling even more in love with this girl! She rides great in the car, knows sit, shake, down and stay; she is so eager to please. Gretta isn't overly energetic, loves to play but also just likes to be by your side. This sweet girl needs someone to give her a chance. Taking the extra precautions will be well worth it as she will be a great companion. 11/13/16 Volunteer Feedback: Oh Gretta... she is a tall beauty who wants to be your one and only. She needs to be the only pet in the home (this is also the same outside of the home in public). She needs respectful distance from other dogs/cats and should not be interacting with them. Gretta is so smart and eager to work with you!! I had so much fun walking with her and just doing basic obedience commands. Gretta will require daily walks in a safe area where you won't run into a bunch of dogs that are not in control. She would probably love going for long hikes in nature (on leash only). Right now we are working on her fear reactions of moving vehicles but as I stated, she is smart and eager to work/please. With some good work with a trainer, Gretta would be so great to have around. 10/20/16 Volunteer Feedback: Gretta is a sweetheart. She seems a bit cautious when you first meet her, but she warms up to you very quickly. I am used to stubborn dogs in my household so having her constantly follow me around was a real treat. She LOVES her companions and will go wherever you want to go (Now that’s loyalty). Gretta deserves the best in life as do all of our shelter dogs that come and go. But there are always certain ones you never forget.. she has definitely fallen under that category for me. If you are looking for a great dog who will relax when you want to relax, will play when you want to play, who will love you unconditionally after the first 20 seconds of her laying eyes on you.. she just might be the dog for you, just remember Gretta is very special, so she wants all of the attention for herself with no other dogs.

    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 75. {s3829code380/} If you would like to provide this dog a loving home, please fill out a pre-adoption application. Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. FOSTER HOME NEEDED Statistics Name: Virginia Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix Age: 3.5 Years Size: Large 61 Lbs. ~Large range: 61-100 lbs. Adoption Donation: $75 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Virgina needs a home with no other pets Other: Spayed Female, Vaccinations current, Microchip, No other animals of any kind, Needs fenced-in yard, No children Virginia has skin and environmental allergies and needs to eat prescription food. She also takes a daily medication to manage her allergies. Virginia is looking for a home and person to be all hers! Foster Home Feedback * Needs fenced-in yard, No children, NO other animals (Virginia once fought a porcupine and lost-- she holds a grudge). Virginia has skin and environmental allergies and needs to eat prescription food. She also takes medication to manage her allergies. 9/10/17 Volunteer Feedback: Virginia is a delightfully beautiful girl looking for the perfect home. I have taken this sweetheart on a few adventures and I fall more in love with her each time. First, we went to the vet together to have an allergy shot. Virginia was well behaved while we waited for the technician to ask some questions. And in the few minutes it took for the vet to come in, she laid down and looked bored. Then we had an outing away from the shelter at my house. Virginia just really loves to be with her people. She followed my husband and I around and was always close by. She enjoyed exploring the backyard, found a few toys that were fun to play with, giving sweet kisses, and snoozing on a dog bed. Virginia is so quiet and laid back. She was by far the easiest house guest I've ever had. At the shelter, Virginia always keeps her kennel clean, walks very well on a leash with her harness. She knows a few basic commands. Although Virginia doesn't want the company of other animals as much as she does her humans, she is still a wonderful dog to consider adopting. Virginia just wants to be your one and only love. A lot of people think having a dog who is not dog-friendly is difficult. But I have two dogs of my own that only enjoy each other's company and it isn't difficult at all. Consider adopting Virginia and giving her the loving home she so deserves. 7/31/17: Virginia is a SUCH a sweetheart! She's been in our home for about 3 months and has proved to be an excellent companion. Virginia loves people and wants to be by your side for whatever you're doing... gardening, watching TV, making dinner, she just wants your company! She does very well walking on a leash and loves to get exercise every day. As long as you keep an eye out for approaching animals, she sticks right by your side. We love that Virginia knows so many commands (i.e. sit, stay, come, leave it) and is eager to learn even more. She would do best in a home that gives her free reign of the house, can make frequent check-ins, and has no other animals. We hope you'll consider Virginia as your next pet! 4/8/17 Volunteer Feedback: Meet Virgina! This girl has my heart. I have so enjoyed her sweet and silly personality. Another volunteer and I gave her a medicated bath to help with her skin issues. While some dogs are very difficult to bathe, Virgina was an absolute dream and her skin is on the mend. It was fun to watch her wiggle and run around a bit after her bath because she is generally so quiet. She is so easy to walk, isn't too playful and is quite laid back and happy to hang with you on the couch. Virgina always keeps her kennel clean, rides very nicely in a car and is great with kids. She always greets you with a wagging tail and isn't jumpy like many of the shelter dogs so she is a volunteer favorite to leash up. Please consider giving Virgina the wonderful home she so deserves. 3/27/17 Volunteer Feedback: Sweet Virginia was surrendered to the rescue needing some veterinary care for her skin and for the past few weeks I've been giving her special "spa" treatments with medicated shampoo. She is looking so much better and is now ready to be adopted! I can't say enough about what a very well behaved girl she is. If I already didn't have two fosters, I'd love to add her to my pack! Virginia is very docile and quiet and very stoic. She accepts whatever you ask of her or want to do to her. The last time she was over, I ended up keeping her for a good portion of the day as I just couldn't bear to bring her back to the shelter (where she patiently waits for a foster or forever home). To some, she may not be the prettiest dog, but she is certainly distinctive with one brown and one blue eye and to me, her beautiful nature does indeed make her a beautiful dog. Virginia walks nicely on leash, rides quietly and practically motionless in a vehicle and no reactions or barking while she is with me at home or at the shelter when I am there doing a shift. Please consider adding this wonderful girl to your family! To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: www.4luvofdog.org

Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. Statistics Name: Fetty Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Age: 4 Years Size: Medium 59 Lbs ~Medium range: 26 - 60 lbs Adoption Donation: $180 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, Vaccinations current, Microchip Fetty is looking a forever home, so he can be someone's boy! Foster Home Feedback ‚Äč 10/1/17: So excited to report Fetty is now keeping up with his big foster brothers on longer walks! Pretty sure he'll never be a jogging companion, but he is walking at a very normal pace. We are going to a nursing home tomorrow to make more friends 9/20/17: Calm, serene, quiet and a friend to all, describes this wonderful dog. I have had him 6 weeks while he has recovered from a devastating seizure. He could hardly walk when I picked him up at the e-vet and slowly he has healed to the point of having small bursts of the zoomies! Fetty kennels easily and when I know I will be gone more than 2 hours I will kennel him if I know he has recently drank a lot of water. Otherwise, I leave him out. Once he relearned and gained enough strength to climb my steps to the bedroom, he has slept quietly on a dog bed on the floor. He loves napping in his dog bed close to wherever I am. In the evening my husband allows Fetty on the basement couch while he watches tv. Otherwise, he can always be found napping and snoring softly in his dog bed. Since starting phenobarbital Fetty has been seizure free. He takes a pill every 12 hours so he needs a home where his family is able to keep to a schedule. The medication makes him thirsty and so he needs to have his water intake monitored and be let out after drinking. He has a huge bladder and regularly pees for an amazing 45 seconds at a time! I feel a home where his owner only works part-time or from home would be ideal. He would be a great dog for grandparents as he has been great with my grandkids. We go for 6 block walks several times a day; he loves to sniff for pee-mail and tell other dogs he has been out walking. Fetty is a very slow walker. If you are looking for a fitness walking partner Fetty is NOT that dog. He is a dog that radiates calmness and has taught me patience and the joy of a slower pace of life. From the vet records we received, we know Fetty at one point had some allergies and itchy skin. He has been perfect here and happily eats only his kibble...absolutely no dog treats or human food. I absolutely adore this big boy and if I were ready to stop fostering he would be my forever dog and I would be training him as a therapy dog as he would be awesome! 9/18/17: Fetty has a seizure disorder. His adopter will need to give his medication on-time and without fail to ensure Fetty stays happy and healthy. Fetty's medication costs less than $40/month and he will need semi-annual bloodwork done to ensure that his medication is at the right dose. Fetty does best in one-level homes with minimal stairs. His medication makes him thirsty, so adopters will need to monitor Fetty's water intake. Fetty does great with everyone he's met and is excited to find his forever home!

If you qualify and are interested in participating in this program, please fill out an application online and type "SENIOR" after your name. Maya is looking for a nice quiet home! Foster Home Feedback 9/18/17: Maya has been with me for about 2 weeks now and she's been so much fun to have around. She gets along really well with my dog, even though he's three times bigger. She loves to go for walks but loves to cuddle just as much. She can often be found completely burrowed under a blanket on the couch. Maya loves attention, giving kisses, and a good belly rub as well. I also have two young cats and she does well with them also. She will chase after them if they're running, but it's just in fun. One of my cats absolutely loves dogs and they're often caught cuddling and Maya sometimes tries to get her to play by poking and prodding her with her nose. Maya is potty trained and crate trained as well. I don't think she would need to be kenneled, but since my own dog is kenneled when I'm gone, Maya is too. She readily goes into her kennel with a peanut butter Kong and is quiet until I come back home. I don't have kids, but I think Maya would do fine with kids that are respectful and understand how to behave appropriately around dogs. Technically, she may be considered a senior dog, but don't let that gray face fool you. She'd love to be the side-kick on your adventures and I think Maya would fit into just about any family.

Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, Vaccinations current, Microchip Walter is looking for that nice forever home! Foster Home Feedback 9/13/17: I am Sir Walter McCunningham and I am dictating to you with the assistance of my new secretary because an important issue has come up that I must address post haste: I am in search of a new, permanent assistant. While my current, temporary, assistant is quite knowledgeable and attentive to my needs and comfort, I would like to formally and respectfully request a permanent, loyal, human companion who needs—and needs to be—a devoted friend and confidant of lifelong status. What I lack in pedigree, I account for in rapid flexibility and zest for life. I am content with thoughtful reflection at your feet whilst you indulge in a thought-provoking classic novel, or I will accompany you while you admire your grounds and neighboring estates on a regular basis. I would be delighted to commune with a friendly canine companion, considering they respect boundaries when requested. I also have experience collaborating with youthful individuals, provided they have been properly informed how to treat an individual of my status. Hopefully Yours, Walter Secretary's translation: Walter is awesome. He needs about 12 hours to adjust to a new situation. He is completely potty trained and listens to the word "No". He TRUELY and COMPLETELY wants to please and he needs his person. Walter is very loyal and he wants to devote the rest of his life to someone. He crates well (barks for a few minutes when you leave) and interacts with my crazy Husky well. The main issue I've found that he needs to work on completing commands (he seems to know them, but tests what YOU know) and taking treats nicely. I'll work on that. You work on your application, please. 8/10/17: Meet Walter! He is very loyal and loving, does great with kids and with other dogs. Walter needs slow introductions to people he does not know. He will growl but with slow introductions, he is able to calm down. Walter loves to cuddle with his people of all sizes. Walter loves playing outside with other dogs and he does not need to be kenneled while you are gone. Walter would do best in a quieter home without a ton of traffic coming and going. He might also like another dog he can hang out with. He loves walks and car rides, any adventure is good with him!!

He can be quite a goofball! He enjoys going on long walks with his human friends. Sometimes he likes to bring his toys along too! He's pretty well mannered but sometimes has to be reminded to sit nicely when he's getting leashed up for a walk. I think he would be happiest with active humans that can help him burn off some of his energy. Although he loves people, Talon also likes to have his space at times, so it is important to be respectful of that and let him have space when he wants it. Talon doesn't like touchy feely and needs an adopter to give him his space. So no hugs, please. I look forward to seeing him whenever I have a shift at our building. He makes my day brighter!

Merlin want to have a magical forever home! Foster Home Feedback 1/3/17: Merlin is still searching for a home he can call his own. Merlin still gets around like a champ with the help of Dasaquin and Lubri-Syn once a day. This will have to be continued indefinitely. Merlin also needs to avoid a lot of activity like a lot of stairs or high furniture. I have doggy steps that he uses to get up and down off our couch/bed, and he is happy to use those. As long as Merlin has a lap to snuggle on, he's a very happy, content little guy. Merlin's ideal home would be one without a lot of stairs and a very laid back home without a lot of visitors. Even with this colder weather, Merlin still goes outside to do his business but is happy to get back into the warm house and find a spot with my other dogs in front of a vent to warm up. If you're looking for a snuggle buddy to keep you warm on these cold nights, let Merlin work his magic on you! 4/27/16: Merlin is still patiently waiting and is hoping he'll be spending summer with a family he can call his own. While warmer weather usually means a lot more activity, Merlin is still happy to just lounge around the house. Now that we're getting some warmer days, Merlin likes to show off how great he is at multitasking by "supervising" me while I do lawn work AND soaking up the sun at the same time. While Merlin does enjoy a walk, he's happy that I'm not too much of a runner, as he's happy to go at a nice, leisurely pace. His favorite place to be is still curled up next to me, but when I have things to do, he'll crawl into his crate with his blanket and is very content in there. Merlin may take a little more time and patience, but once he feels secure and knows you're all right, he'll give you his heart and be your buddy for life. 12/16/15: Merlin has his paws crossed that he'll get a wonderful forever home for Christmas. Merlin has done excellent with his potty training and will now tell us, sometimes quite adamantly, when he needs to go out (even with this colder weather). However, I would recommend an adopter crate or keep a close eye on Merlin when bringing him into their home. I still do slow introductions to people with Merlin but have noticed that Merlin seems to do better with women than he does with men. While he is able to be around men, it does take time for him to learn that he can trust them and so I now let men know not to overwhelm Merlin, give him some time and patience, and to let him come to them. I am a huge supporter of positive reinforcement, and this would definitely need to be the case with Merlin. Merlin is still getting around like a champ, but he is on a daily joint supplement and anti-inflammatory. We just stick them in with his breakfast, and he chows them down. Merlin is definitely my snuggle buddy and takes his job of keeping my legs and feet warm very seriously. If you have the patience to let Merlin come out of his shell, you will see an extremely loyal and delightful little guy. 8/27/15: Merlin is a wonderful, happy little fellow who has fit right into our home. He is doing very well with his potty training and will remind us that he needs to go out. He's a talkative little guy, so I would recommend no apartments for Merlin. He does very well with our dogs - big and small. We only have two who are interested in playing with him, and he's always up for a good game of chase. Merlin does have subluxating patellas (common in small dogs), so we are careful to make sure he doesn't get too crazy in his play. When our own dogs play, he either wants to join in the play or tell them to settle down. Merlin would do well in a calmer home as he likes to run a tight ship. While he does enjoy meeting new people, he also wants to make sure they understand no shenanigans. Merlin loves to crawl up into my lap and rest his head on my shoulder. At night, he crawls under the covers and keeps my legs warm. Merlin does well in a crate but definitely enjoys being around his people.

    Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher (short coat). Adoption Fee: 180. {s3829code380/} If you would like to provide this dog a loving home, please fill out a pre-adoption application. Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. Statistics Name: Carlito Breed: Miniature Pinscher Age: 4 Years Size: Small lbs. ~Small range: up to 25 lbs Adoption Donation: $180 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, Vaccinations current, Microchip Carlito is a cute little boy who just knows you want to take him home! Foster Home Feedback Carlito has fainting-type episodes on occasion. He has had testing to determine if these episodes are due to Diabetes, Addison's Disease, or Epiliepsy, and results have been negative. Carlito's adopter must be understanding that Carlito may need further vetting to determine what these episodes are. 8/9/17: Carlito has been with us for about a month now and he is such a fun little dude! He has been very friendly to everyone he has met. He has met a couple of children, but he does not live with any so we are not sure how he would do with active youngsters full time. He loves to perch on the back of the couch or recliner and has found all the spots in the house where he can look out the windows and see what's going on in the neighborhood. Carlito marked a few times since he moved in; this has decreased somewhat since he got neutered. He still wears a belly band most of the time. Carlito took a couple of days to adjust to a new potty schedule and had one accident. It's helpful to keep an eye on him to make sure he goes potty before coming inside. Carlito kennels fairly well. He does tend to bark occasionally throughout the day so he may not be a good candidate for an apartment. Carlito does not chew on things he shouldn't (a big Plus!) He seems to really like to pick up stones and carry them around. We do take them away from him so he doesn't eat them and keep an eye on him when he is in the yard. Carlito also likes to dig a little bit but is redirected fairly well when he is told "no". Carlito doesn't know many commands so we are working on the basics like "sit" and "off". Carlito loves to sit with his human, preferably on their lap. He also loves to burrow under blankets at night and usually sleeps at our feet. Carlito lives with other dogs, most of which are bigger then he is. He gets along with everyone well and will let another dog know if he doesn't feel like playing. He can also be a bit bossy towards our bigger dogs and will chase them around the yard a bit. Carlito is such a sweetheart and a cuddle bug. He does have some personality quirks that his adopter will need to understand and accept about him but he has loads of love to give!

    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 180. {s3829code380/} If you would like to provide this dog a loving home, please fill out a pre-adoption application. Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. FOSTER HOME NEEDED Statistics Name: Gideon Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix Age: 1.5 Year Size: Medium 45 lbs. ~Medium range: 26 - 60 lbs. Adoption Donation: $180 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, Vaccinations current, Microchip, No Childen Gideon is super sweet and laid-back. Foster Home Feedback * No Children 8/21/17 Volunteer Feedback: I love seeing Gideon's smiling face when I'm at the shelter. (He will literally "grin" when he sees a familiar person!) He is shy around men, but he will warm up if you give him time. He's a super playful and fun guy when you get to know him...and of course, he's adorable! 8/21/17 Volunteer Feedback: Gideon has grown so much compared to when he first entered the shelter. Slowly but surely, he is getting more confident being around people. That being said, Gideon still has some stranger danger, particular towards men. He has not quite learned that men are okay and is very uneasy when around. He has grown so much! With slow introductions and a willingness to show him that people are good, Gideon will be the best dog! Gideon is a very loyal dog. Once he knows you, he remembers and he will be your best friend. He is very people oriented, sometimes disinterested in toys or treats. Gideon is such a sweet boy and has stolen my heart! If you are willing to put in the work to show him how good people are, Gideon will be a forever friend who will love you unconditionally! 7/11/17 Volunteer Feedback: Gideon spent most of the day at my home on a break from the shelter...and we had such fun! He was a complete gentleman and enjoyed romping in the backyard with stuffed toys.To say he looked 'joyous' is an understatement!! After playing, I brought him into our small walk in shower and gave him a bath, including his face and head, and he was calm and quiet. Gideon really seemed to actually like being brushed too. Since Gideon is afraid of men, I had him in a kennel when my husband came home and Gideon just quietly observed him without barking. Slow intros to men are necessary for some rescue dogs like Gideon (who probably have good reasons for their fears). I am so hopeful Gideon will soon get a foster or forever person or family, but until he does I hope to take him on more outings and expose him to lots of nice men. Love this guy... 3/1/17: Gideon is such a sweetheart! We love having him as part of our family! He loves to cuddle and relax, but also has a playful side. He enjoys running around with our dog in the backyard. Gideon does well on a leash for walks and sleeps great in his kennel. He also does a great job in the car...doesn't make a peep and usually sleeps! Gideon is fully potty trained and stands by the back door to let us know that he needs to relieve himself. He does well with female dogs but seems to not favor other male dogs. He can be resource aggressive; in a multi-dog home, I recommend feeding them separately. As an only dog, I truly believe he would be the best dog ever! Gideon just wants all of the love. He can also be shy around Human males and tends to gravitate towards females. Total ladies man! However, with time, Gideon warms up. Gideon listens to commands well and would be easily trained. He would be a great addition to a loving and special family. We will be a little sad to see him go, but very happy to find Gideon his forever family! 1/15/17 Volunteer Feedback: Oh what a handsome man! Gideon was a bit shy when I first meet him at my volunteer shift but by the end of my shift, we were best friends. He is a very well-mannered dog when it comes to walking and every once awhile he would turn around and jump on me for some cuddle time. He would benefit from some positive obedience training just to help keep his mind working and most important, work on socialization skills that he will need to become a more confident balanced dog.

Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation.

Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Spayed Female, Vaccinations current, Microchip, No Cats Jinxy just wants to cuddle! Foster Home Feedback * NO Cats 5/8/17: Jinxy's update is well overdue. She has settled into our family so wonderfully. Jinxy enjoys being with us, whether it's playing and goofing around or relaxing in the sun. She has done well with crate training the past couple of months and has very, very few accidents in her crate and none in the house. She comes to work with me during the day and this has seemed to help tremendously so I can make sure to get her out to potty. Jinxy enjoys training and flourishes with positive training methods. She has done great with our dogs too and is learning to be calm when meeting other dogs. Jinxy is also great with kids. She is a fantastic dog! 2/23/17: Jinxy has certainly settled into our home and hearts. She is a very affectionate girl who wants to please (and gets easily distracted). We have been working on "dog to dog" behaviors and she is learning to throttle back some when playing with our dogs. Since she gets distracted easily, she can sometimes forget to do both 1 and 2 potty when she is outside. If we monitor her though and remind her by going out with her, taking away distractions, and telling her to go potty, then she does great and can be allowed free roam of the house (when we are home). Jinxy is working on crate training and has a little anxiety. She knows sit and stay, lay down, and more soon! She has also been around kids, ages 4 and 6, and been great. She seems to have a prey drive with cats so not recommended to be around cats. She has tolerated being switched to Zignatures dog food. Her skin is still very sensitive, for example, to the cold, irritates easier from scratches, etc. Jinxy LOVES playing with the jolly ball. She is quick, driven, and has a great vertical jump; she is a wonderful candidate for agility. She sometimes skips an entire set of seven stairs (!) at our house when she is running her "hot laps"...She is such a hoot. 12/18/16: Jinxy has been with us for a couple of days. She seems to be kennel trained and potty trained, so far. She requires slow intros to dogs, as she can sometimes be intense on leash- we are working on it though and have very high hopes she can learn to control herself. Jinxy loves to play and is a great cuddler when she is tired. She is only about 40lbs too, so great size to share the couch with! Currently, Jinxy is on special dog food (ZD) for her sensitive stomach and skin. To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: www.4luvofdog.org
