  • Mutt Dog For Adoption in Fargo, ND

    Gretta

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Mutt
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: Fargo, ND
    Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). {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: 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. 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 dogs in home; No Cats ~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. 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 one’s 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
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: Fargo, ND
    Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). {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: Ava Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier Age: 5 Years Size: Large 84 lbs. ~Large range: 61 - 100 lbs. Adoption Donation: $180 - $105 donation* = $75 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Spayed Female, Vaccinations Current, Microchipped, No children * Thank you for the $105 anonymous adoption donation! Ava is looking for a non-child home with lots of love! Foster Home Feedback * No Children 2/8/17: Ava has been a part of our home for two months and she is quite the cuddle bug! Snuggling with her humans and giving kisses are her favorite activities. She would make a perfect companion for someone looking for a cuddly couch potato. Ava gets along well with my 9 year old Labrador. She loves to be the center of attention, though, so she would probably get along best in a household with a more submissive dog that will allow her to hog the spotlight. She has not shown any resource guarding around toys or food and waits patiently while my Lab's meals are being served. Then stands up and spins in excited circles a couple of times while she watches me fill her dish. Ava has been really great when meeting new people at the Adoption Days events at PetSmart, but needs slower introductions to new animals. She also needs slower introductions to new people coming into her home. She has great watchdog instincts and needs to be sure that her people are okay with the stranger before letting her guard down. She can put on a show of being tough but is really a big teddy bear. She is easily startled by loud or unexpected noises and responds very well to 'pet corrector' if needed. Ava is crate trained and will willingly "kennel up" when told. She will sleep there willingly as well, although she prefers to fall asleep snuggling with her human. Ava loves walks, toys, and taking long naps. Whatever you're up for, she is too. 12/3/16 Volunteer Feedback: I picked up Ava up a couple of days ago from our facility to take her on a kennel break since she had unfortunately been in boarding for a couple of weeks. She is amazing!! She was a little stressed and anxious the first day, but she has been through a lot of changes recently so I don't blame her. It was nothing awful, she just paced and panted for a while, and just seemed overwhelmed by the new surroundings. But once we all sat down to hang out for the night, she curled up right by my feet and settled down nicely. She likely will be a bit anxious anytime she goes into a new place, so just something to be aware of, but she does settle down nicely. I have two female Pitties and she gets along with them really well. She is super playful and hasn't had any negative reactions to them at all. My dogs are not overly playful, but she has been trying her hardest to get them to play with her! Ava is totally potty trained - hasn't had one accident and knew right away to go to the door when she had to go potty. She is also kennel trained and actually seems to like her kennel. The very first night I did have to coax her into it with some treats, and she did bark/whine for about five minutes but then was quiet the rest of the night. The next morning, I said "kennel up!" and my dogs went into their kennels and Ava went right into hers and laid down. She was in there while I was at work for about 9 hours with no break, and she kept it clean and was happy and calm when I got home. Ava has pretty good manners; she knows how to sit and lay down. She won't get on the furniture unless invited up. She LOVES to snuggle and have her belly rubbed. She can be a bit shy with new people at first, particularly men. When my boyfriend got home, she did bark at him but not at all in an aggressive way. She seemed more scared of him than anything. After he gave her some yummy treats, he was her new bestie. I had a person come over to my house to meet her and she greeted her very appropriately and was sitting her lap after about 15 minutes. She brought her dog as well, and she was very friendly. She does get very excited to see new dogs and can be vocal, but it's not aggressive. Ava responds really well to redirection with Pet Corrector or a treat if she gets amped up and bark-y. Ava was actually adopted from the rescue as a puppy and was just recently returned for not being good with little kids. Because she can be shy/nervous/anxious, I can see how kids could be very overwhelming for her. Because of this, she obviously should not go to a home with kids. Ava is an amazing dog who will be perfect for just about any home. She is the perfect mix of active and lazy. Please consider giving her a chance!

    Tanner & Pat...

    Breed: Labrador Retriever
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: Fargo, ND
    Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat). {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: Tanner & Patches (Bonded Pair) Breed: Labrador Retriever Age: 4.5 Years each Size: Medium & Large 49 lbs & 69 lbs. ~Medium range: 25 - 60 / Large Range: 61 - 100 lbs. Adoption Donation: $180 - $25 Donation* = $155 for pair (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, Vaccinations current, Microchip *Thank you for the anonymous adoption donation! Tanner & Patches are a bonded pair; They are buddies for life and they will keep you in smiles! Foster Home Feedback 1/28/17: These two amazing dudes would LOVE to be your forever valentine. They just finished up their doctorates in "Snuggling"! Super playful, hilarious, sweet, and easy-going dogs. They enjoy walks on the sidewalk, sunbutter kongs, and the finest tap water that Moorhead can provide. We've been working on our commands and manners, and are making daily progress. They love their kennels and go in willingly when it's time.Tanner & Patches have even made some breakthroughs with "stranger danger" and trust issues! They hope to find someone with a lot of love in their heart and LOTS of patience, understanding, and willingness to work with them. Oh, and snugz. Lots of snugz! 12/19/16: Merry Christmas from Tanner and Patches! These two beautiful boys are thriving together! Both are off of their anxiety meds. Both are so much more confident. Patches is doing great at classes. Walks are easy. They constantly play together and are always right next to each other. So snuggly and lovey! 11/7/16: Tanner and Patches are a bonded pair that are looking for a loving and patient home that they can go to together. Tanner and Patches got a bad start in life and as a result can be very shy, nervous, and unsure of meeting new people. Tanner warms up very quickly, especially with treat bribes and lots of pets. Patches, on the other hand, is very nervous around new people. The first day at my house, he stayed in his open kennel most of the day, until he felt comfortable enough to come explore. With enough love, patience, and work, they can be amazing companions. We tried to adopt them out separately, but this did not have great results. These brothers have separation anxiety issues and are much better off staying in a household together. Tanner and Patches constantly play together. Both are crate trained, especially when bribed with a filled Kong! They have shown great results in training classes, making great strides in their development. Both are very treat motivated, and also thrive on positive interaction. We have our basic commands down, and working on refining them. In the couple of months that Tanner and Patches have been in my home, they have gone from very timid, unsure, and shy dogs, to confident, playful, and loving pups. Both love snuggles and being by their person nonstop. We are great at walks, especially while using an EZ harness. Tanner and Patches would be an amazing addition to any family. They are looking for someone who is patient, and willing to work with them to gain confidence and to know that they can be loved and give love unconditionally. Tanner: 10/5/16: Tanner has been with me for about three months now. He is very shy at first but warms up very quickly. We bonded within the first couple days at my house, and he is now my shadow. The easiest way to his heart is with treats and lots of pets. Tanner is very loving, loyal, snuggly, and a giant goofball. He has a master's degree in snuggling. For the most part, he is very low-key, but he loves walks and loves to run laps around my backyard. Tanner is crated during the day at my house, as he does have some separation anxiety. I do have to bribe him with treats. I think once he is comfortable in your home, he could be left out in the house. We had some issues with anxiety accidents, but he never chewed or destroyed anything. He sleeps in bed with me and the other dogs, and we have not had any issues. He gets along great with other dogs and loves to engage in friendly play. I have an alpha dog, and he has never had any issues with that. Tanner listens very well and is very eager to learn. We have gone to a couple obedience classes at Down Dog Studio, and he made remarkable progress within the hour lesson. I think he would do great in a weekly class. Tanner has had zero issues with children. At adoption events, toddlers have walked up to him and hugged his face, and he has reciprocated with gentle kisses. Tanner needs to go to a home with another dog. He gets anxiety being alone at home during the day. He also needs another dog to show him how to be a dog. Patches: 10/9/16 Volunteer Feedback: We've had Patches this weekend and he is a super sweet boy. He does need a full day to warm up and get used to you; however, once he does, he will follow you everywhere and you'll become his comfort. We have two dogs and he seems honestly indifferent to them. He's more concerned with where his person is than anything else. We have a fenced yard and I think that would be the best for him as he likes to wander around the yard and take in all the scents. We don't have a super quiet neighborhood due to construction around us and he's grown used to the noises already, so he does get accustomed to his surroundings given a little time. Patches would do best with a quiet home with no young kids because sudden noises and movements do startle him. He is super gentle and his fur is incredibly soft. Are you able to give this sweet guy a forever home? Fill out an application today! He's waiting to call you his own.

  • Beagle Dog For Adoption in Fargo, ND

    Boston

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Beagle
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: Fargo, ND
    Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). {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: Boston Breed: Beagle Age: 3 Years Size: Medium 26 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 Children, Fenced yard required Boston is timid and needs time to adjust. He needs to go to a home with no kids. It may take multiple times meeting Boston for him to feel comfortable, so a home within the Fargo-Moorhead radius is preferred. Foster Home Feedback * No Children 1/26/17: Boston is a wonderful dog and a gorgeous beagle. He is very loyal in his home to his people. He kennels well when we leave the house – I grab a treat and he heads for the kennel. He loves to run and play ball outside. A fenced yard is a must for Boston as he gets nervous when strangers approach while he is on a leash and will lunge. He is definitely a Beagle and does make it known with his bark. Boston also gets nervous when strangers or people he doesn’t see often come into the house so it is best for all to just plan on kenneling him when someone he hasn’t learned to trust comes in the house. Boston’s issues with strangers have improved over time but he has a long way to go with his stranger danger. If you want a loyal dog and have a quiet house with a fenced yard, Boston might be the dog for you! 9/7/16: Boston is still here waiting for his permanent home. He is an awesome guy to have around. He loves to play ball, kennels well and is loving to his people. He does need a fenced yard as he is very scared of strangers and will lunge at them, so I am very careful when people come to the house. Boston is just the sweetest little guy to the people in the household that he considers to be friends. He will get used to a small amount of people and will be very loyal to his companion so a single person or a couple with not a lot of company and no children around would be ideal for him. 6/29/16: Boston is still here! Boston is the perfect dog for someone that has a quiet household and a fenced yard. He is so lovable. Although he loves to play with other dogs, he might be best as an “only dog” as long as he has a person to call his own. We enjoy having Boston. He knows in the morning when I am ready to leave, I head for the treats and he heads for his kennel. Boston is potty trained and his favorite pass time is playing ball. Boston still has issues with strangers, so I am very cautious when people come to the house. I do have a dog of my own that Boston plays with, but Boston is easily triggered with a growl and will become aggressive, so they are not left unsupervised alone. As Boston’s “person” I can say that Boston has never turned on me as he is very loyal to me, so once you take over my roll, he will be your best friend. If you have any questions about Boston, please feel free to ask. If you do have the perfect home for this special dog, we can make sure you get to know him and can become friends before taking him home. 3/6/16: Boston has been with me for 3 months now. He is a very loving and loyal dog to “his person”. Boston does have a fear of strangers and needs to be kenneled or leashed to someone he trusts, when people come to the house. His safe place is his kennel. He kennels very well when I leave him for the day. He knows when I reach for a handful of treats and toys, it's time and he races me to the kennel. He has a dog companion at my house but supervision is required when they are together as Boston can get too amped up, become very rough and dominate quickly. He has been going to training where he is getting exposed to strangers and learning simple commands. He is very motivated with treats so stock up! If you are interested in Boston, please make sure you are willing and have the time required to work with him. I feel Boston will do best in a 1 or 2 adult person household without children. 2/24/16 Feedback From Kish Hilmert (dog trainer with Down Dog Studio): Boston is a sweet dog but because he was not exposed to many new people or situations when he was a puppy he is fearful of new people and new environments. His ideal home would be one with a quiet environment with a limited number of new people visiting and a playful doggie friend. He enjoys rambunctious play with other dogs so a canine companion would be great. Boston 's foster has done a great job working with him to associate new people with positive things. He has come along way with general training and working on his stranger danger but he still has progress to make. His new home would need to continue working with Boston on training and getting him comfortable with new people. 12/1/15: Boston is very timid and will take some time adjusting to his new people. He does get better every day and will now follow us around wherever we go and will get on the couch and sit next to us. He gets very scared and freezes when we pick him up, but that too has gotten better since the first day he was with us. Having other dogs has helped him; he follows them outside and does what they do. He would benefit from having a dog buddy to show him the ropes. His new home needs to have a fenced in yard to keep him safe since he is so timid and scared to come to people. He loves running outside in the yard and throws himself around like he's having the time of his life. He likes to play with toys and has recently started playing with our dogs. Boston is as cute as they come, but he does need plenty of patience and time to adjust to his new home. 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: Merlin Breed: Manchester Terrier Age: 6.5 Years Size: Small 20 lbs. ~Small range: up to 25 lbs. Adoption Donation: $180 - $20 * donation = $160 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, vaccinations current, microchip * Adoption Donation to help Merlin find his forever home from Dorothy! Thank you! 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. We 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. He will approach my husband and let him know he wants to snuggle with him, but it took a lot of time and patience to get there. 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.

Foster Home Feedback 2/4/17: It's finally February!! Yolanda was really hoping that someone would find some room in their hearts and home for her. She is happy to be beyond the holidays, although she had a blast, the holidays are exhausting! Yolanda got to go and stay at her foster-grandparents home over the holidays with her foster family. She did AMAZING there! One night, there was a huge get-together with tons of friends and family, and Yoyo totally stole the show! Everyone loved her and she enjoyed getting petted and receiving all of the attention. When she was tired, she went and found her dog bed and crashed in the corner even with all of the noise and commotion still going on around her. Yoyo is a little bummed that we have had such cold days, because no one really wants to go for a walk in our house, including her. She is perfectly content to chew on a bone or rope toy on these cold days, though. We have had a few other foster dogs in our home, and Yolanda has done really well with most of them. She does great with a dog that can respect her loud play-growls and not be scared or intimidated by them. Sometimes it just takes a little time for other dogs to figure out Yolanda's quirks that make her so special! Yolanda's diabetes is getting more stabilized, so we are so happy and proud of her! She has recently weighed in around 53 pounds, which is a huge success compared to where she started when 4 Luv of Dog took her into the rescue. She does great on her feeding schedule and insulin. She is such a smart girl. We feed all of the dogs including Yolanda and then after a few minutes put all of the other dogs outside. Yoyo stays inside near her dish because she knows it is time for her "second special meal" that she gets to eat while we give her a quick insulin shot. Did I mention her foster parents have come up with a middle name for her? They call her "Yolanda Asconda". With a first and middle name like that, how can you resist adopting this fine young lady! Yo thinks the song phrase "Put a little love in your heart" should be changed to "Put a little Yo in your home!" 12/19/16: Yolanda had a wonderful and busy weekend! On Friday night, Yolanda (Yoyo) got to attend Doggie Date Night hosted by Unglued at the Prairie Den. She did wonderfully meeting dogs of all sizes and types. Yoyo had so much fun at the event! She even posed for a picture with her foster mom in front of a fun holiday backdrop! Despite losing some of her vision, she would not let it get in her way of having a fun time! Yoyo had a sleepover at a friend's house and got to spend all day Saturday and Sunday with some new doggie friends! Yay! Yoyo did great meeting the new dogs and was happy to play with them. She even went to a house with some cats and did very well with them. While she was at the new house, Yoyo slept in her kennel at night and did well with it. Yoyo's babysitter said it was "easy-peasy" to give her the insulin injections, that it wasn't an issue whatsoever! At the end of her busy weekend, she just wanted to relax and snooze on her dog bed with a toy. 12/09/16: Yolanda really hopes that her diabetes is not scaring any potential adopters away! She is such a sweet girl and great dog that her foster parents think the only reason she hasn't found a home must be because of her diabetes. BUT, her foster parents want you to know that having a dog with diabetes is no big deal AT ALL! Unlike humans, she does not need to get her blood sugar checked daily. All she needs is to be fed at regular times, 12 hours apart, with a quick insulin shot ten minutes after the feeding. Yolanda usually has no idea that she is even getting her insulin injection. She is currently going to the vet once a month until her glucose levels get squared away. Once her levels are stabilized, there will be a lot less maintenance involved for her health. Yolanda really enjoys car rides, and will typically just hang out on the backseat and enjoy the ride. She likes hanging out and watching football on Saturdays and Sundays and doesn't get concerned when her foster parents are yelling at the television. All of the people that meet Yolanda enjoy her goofy smile, calm demeanor, and cute floppy ear! Did we mention that she loves to meet new people?! We must warn you though, if you meet her you will fall in love with her!! 11/16/16: It has been a long journey for Yolanda, but she is finally getting her medical situation sorted out!! Unfortunately, due to her diagnosis of diabetes, her eyesight has deteriorated. She gets around our house perfectly fine since she knows it, but she can occasionally get disoriented. However, once she is in an environment and knows the layout, Yolanda does incredibly well for herself. Every once in a while she just needs a little more guidance and patience to help her get around. Sometimes this is as simple as putting a leash on her and guiding her around, or even using her collar to help direct her. I think Yolanda is happy to have two other dogs in her foster home; they help her out and guide her around in new environments. Despite some vision loss, Yolanda will show you that it does not slow her down one bit! She loves to go on walks and be outdoors. Yolanda can be a little diva in the respect that she LOVES to be pet! She almost begs you to pet her with those big brown eyes of hers. Then once you are petting her and she is comfortable, she rolls on her back so you can give her a nice belly rub! She enjoys a great belly rub. During the day, Yolanda sleeps and relaxes in her kennel. She gets a small snack over the lunch hour to help stabilize her blood sugar. She likes her walk when her foster parents get home from work in the evening. Then, it's supper, followed by a quick insulin shot, and whatever her foster parents want to do! Yolanda is happy to follow her foster parents around the house while they are cleaning or doing laundry, but she also likes to curl up on the couch next to you and relax. At night, Yolanda sleeps on an old wing-back chair in her foster parent's bedroom. She knows it is "her chair" too. Usually, Yolanda has cuddle time with her foster parents on their bed and then when they tell her to go to her chair, she jumps down and sleeps on her chair the rest of the night! She curls up on her chair and sometimes you will need to ask her to get out of it to go outside and get breakfast in the morning. Since gaining weight and getting her medical situation figured out, she has shown a positive interest in other dogs. Yolanda enjoys playing with other dogs and having dog-buddies in the house. She has done well in meeting new dogs and is generally not reactive. Since Yolanda is about 7 years old, she has a very calm disposition and would be good in a home with older, respectful children. Most people that meet Yolanda say only the nicest things--most commonly that she is so sweet and cute! Would Yolanda make a wonderful addition to your home?!? She thinks so! 9/15/16: Hi there! My name is Yoyo and I would really love to settle into a home that will be my furever home! Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I love, love, love humans!!! They make me so happy and I love to be around them. A couple of weekends ago, my foster parents went on vacation, so I got to vacation at a new house for the weekend! The vacation house had kids and I LOVED following them around and keeping an eye on them! They were so fun to hang out with. Sometimes when I meet people, I just get so excited that I roll over on my back and the humans are smart enough to rub my belly! I LOVE BELLY RUBS!!! I must say that I train humans pretty well! During the day when my foster parents are at work I sleep in my kennel. I'm not super thrilled about it, but my other doggie brothers are next to me in their kennels, so they keep me company. My foster humans tell me that I have a medical condition called, Diabeeezuz or something, but I don't even know what that means!! I'm just a normal girl! It is a little strange though, after my morning meal and evening meal, my humans give me another small handful of food in my dish. Then I feel a slight itch between my shoulder blades, but I honestly don't even notice because I'm so happy I'm eating. I think I heard they might be giving me an insulin shot or something, but I could care less because I love eating my food! Did I mention that I LOVE CAR RIDES!!! All of the humans that are lucky enough to hang out with me say how well I ride in the car. OH YIPPEE!! I think I just heard my foster human grab my leash! I wonder if we're going for a WALK!!! Gotta run! Bye now! 8/26/16: Yolanda, known to us as "Yoyo" has been in our home for a couple of weeks now and we have truly enjoyed having her around. At first, she was not too keen about our older male dogs. We crated and rotated for a 4-5 days and let them have minimal interaction. After that, we did some nice and slow introductions with Yoyo to our dogs, and she did much better! With some consistency and working with her to develop better habits, she runs around the house with our dogs now! She loves to play and wrestle with our dogs, does well with social cues from our dogs, and is not reactive when our dogs get cranky. Sometimes when Yoyo plays, she can get a little too amped up, so we try and calm the play down a bit at that point. We first trained Yoyo to sleep in a kennel in our bedroom at night. She did well with that, so we let her sleep on the dog bed in our bedroom. Turns out she'd rather sleep on the wingback chair in our bedroom so we put a blanket on it, and now that is her sleeping spot every night and she absolutely loves it! She enjoys relaxing in bed with us and our two other dogs on weekend mornings. We are working with her on her leash skills during walks, and she seems to be improving. During the day, she is happy to relax in her kennel while we are at work. Yoyo came into the rescue very skinny, but we are happy to say that she is putting on weight and looking better every day! Because she was and still is skinny, we need to be really careful on the food that is left laying around. I think because of her calm demeanor, she would do well with children. HOWEVER, she would definitely take food out of a small child's hand if given the opportunity to do so, so perhaps older children that can be cognizant of this would be the best fit for Yoyo. This sweet little lady requires insulin shots twice a day (I can honestly say that my husband and I were nervous at first to foster a dog that required insulin shots), BUT after a couple of weeks with Yoyo, we have gotten into a routine with her and the insulin shots to give her are "easy peasy". One day I had let all three dogs including Yoyo go outside to the bathroom and I called out to let them back in. Usually our two dogs and Yoyo come running back in right away but this time Yoyo didn't come in. I stepped out in the backyard and Yoyo was sitting in one of our patio chairs leaning on the back of it, and just watching the world go by. She was loving the backyard and beautiful summer weather. Please consider adopting this sweet little lady. Yoyo cannot wait to be in her forever home and to have a family that loves her and takes good care of her. She just might be the little lady that you never knew you absolutely needed in your life!!! 7/5/16: Yolanda, known to us as Yoyo, is such a sweet girl. Yoyo came to us from Minneapolis because she was significantly underweight and in the pound needing rescue immediately. We didn't hesitate; we knew she needed to come to Fargo and get healthy. When she got here, we discovered she has diabetes and her mismanaged diabetes was causing severe weight loss issues. She was exhausted and in pain, but when her tail wagged, we knew she still had hope for her future. After getting her diabetes, more, under control she has gained weight and feeling happy and wiggly. Yoyo's current foster home took her in as temporary foster but can no longer care for her. Since Yoyo loves her people so much, she likes to be the only dog in the house; more time for her and her person. Her foster has a dog of their own so they are rotating between dogs which can be stressful. We have a boarding facility, but her medical needs don't match up with what our building can provide for her. We need to find Yoyo something more permanent. Even though Yoyo is feeling better, she still requires on-going medical expenses so we are hoping to find someone to care for her as part of our foster-to-adopt program. This person would care for her just as if she was fully adopted and with intentions of providing Yolanda with a forever home; the rescue would cover the costs of any medical expenses, as we do with all of our foster home volunteers. Her care needs are (ideally) 3 feedings per day (special food provided), insulin injections twice per day (she does awesome and insulin provided during timeline) and recheck appointments as needed (currently every 7-10 days; vet visits covered). All she really wants is to be loved and have someone to snuggle with. She is potty trained and does great in both the kennel and the car. As long as she is with her people, she is completely content; she makes for a great office buddy too. She is incredible with children. Yolanda and a volunteer took a trip to the cities where she got the chance to stay with the volunteer's 4 year-old brother and did fantastic. She let him do his thing and then when he wanted to snuggle she was happy to roll over and let him giver her a belly rub. We can't say enough great things about Yoyo! If you're still reading this and you would like to give Yolanda a chance, or you would like to become a foster home volunteer to help dogs in need, like Yolanda, please fill out an application on our website. We thank you for your support. 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: Sophie Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Age: 2.5 Years Size: Medium 41 lbs. ~Medium Range: 26- 60 lbs Adoption Donation: $180 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Spayed Female, Vaccinations current, Microchip, No cats, Older considerate children only, Not apartment appropriate, Sophie would LOVE to have a forever home and family! Foster Home Feedback * No cats 3/12/17: Sophie is still here and hoping that she has a patient angel out there that will give her the chance she so deserves. Sophie is a sweet, sweet dog who needs time to warm up to new people and new surroundings (as well as new animals). She needs to go to a home with another dog who can show her that the world and people are not so scary, but her new home must also be comfortable with doing slow introductions to the resident animals. Sophie can be snotty to new dogs who invade her space but slow proper introductions diffuse the snottiness and she warms up beautifully (it took her a few days to decompress when we first brought her home. We kept her separated from our dogs by a baby gate for those three days and that's exactly what she needed). Sophie hopes her new canine sibling is pretty chill and is ok with cuddling. She cuddles her foster siblings like nobody's business! Sophie is still very young (around 2.5 years old) and we are pretty certain she was never socialized to anything in life so things as small as tossing your clothes on the ground can be terrifying for her. Given her fearfulness, she must go to a home that is child-free (and a home that will not be adding kids to the family in her lifetime). Sophie kennels really, really well but can be barky when you leave for the day so she should not go to an apartment because she may get complaints about partying too hard while you're gone. She can keep her kennel clean for 4-5 hours so she would love to find a home that can let her out on potty breaks during the work day. If you have kept reading to this point, you know Sophie's needs, now I'll indulge in her amazingness. Sophie walks GREAT on a leash and would benefit from daily walks to ease her anxiety. She is incredibly treat motivated so working with her on training is a lot of fun and she picks things up fairly quickly. Have I mentioned that Sophie is an amaaaaaazing cuddler? Like seriously one of the best I've ever seen. She'll give you kisses and cuddle you forever if she could. Sophie is the perfect blend of lazy and active. She loves going on adventures (and needs daily activity to help with her anxiety) but also loves having Netflix marathons as long as you share your lap and popcorn. Please, please, please, consider giving Sophie a chance. She is such an amazing dog who was handed a round of bad cards in her first couple years, so she needs an angel to show her that this world will treat her well and that she is deserving of love and life. Are you Sophie's angel? 12/26/16: We’ve had the pleasure of having Sophie as our foster for a little over 2 months now. She is a sweet and shy girl who is looking for a quiet home to call her own. She is still fairly skittish (however has improved by leaps and bounds compared to when she first arrived in the rescue) so requires a home with no kids as their quick and sudden movements and noises are too scary for her. She is doing better with our two cats so we would consider a home with cats as long as they understand how to do slow and proper dog-cat introductions and as long as the cats are socialized to dogs (a skittish cat who ran away from her might be too tempting to chase). Sophie would also be ok with her forever home having a dog buddy to show her the ropes and demonstrate to her that this world isn’t as scary as she thinks. HOWEVER, if she goes to a home with another dog her forever family must give her time to warm up because she’ll act like she doesn’t like a dog but then will be their best friend after a few days (she has been doing better with our calm male than with our crazy female). Sophie has been going to obedience classes and has been doing great at sit, down, watch me, stay, and walking loosely on a leash (with a harness). She also is learning how to wait to eat her dinner until given the ok. She is a very smart girl who catches on quickly to the rules and also redirects very easily if she is doing something she shouldn’t. She is kennel trained but does bark a little when in her kennel so an apartment setting is not a good fit for her. Sophie would love to find an active home that will exercise her daily to help with her anxiety and give her the love she so desperately craves. Please consider giving this girl a chance. She is happy just hanging out on the couch watching movies and cuddling, or going on a walk and exploring the world. Sophie is such a gem and the best friend you’ve been looking for. 10/30/16: We've had the pleasure of having this sweet girl as our foster for about three weeks now. In those three weeks, she has gone from a scared, unsure, skittish girl to a blossoming young soul who is excited to learn that the world is not so scary. We believe Sophie to be about 2 years old, and now that she has come out of her shell a little bit, she is showing us she would love to find an active forever home- one who likes to go on walks (she walks very nicely on leash with a harness!), rollerblade, run, play ball, or really anything active where she gets to hang out with her family and burn off that typical young dog energy at the same time. She would also be ok with her forever home having another canine sibling for her to learn the ropes from and see that the world isn't so scary, BUT, she does need very slow introductions to new dogs, so her forever home must be understanding of this (it took her three days to be ok with hanging out with our two dogs). Sophie is probably not a good candidate for taking to dog parks. Although awfully sweet, Sophie is not that great at controlling her chasing instinct around cats, so a home with no cats is required for her. Since she startles easily around new noises and sudden movements, she should go to a home with older and considerate kids only. The quick movements and loud noises of young kids might be a bit too much for her. Sophie does very well in her crate. She kennels during the day while we're gone at work and while she does vocally protest right away, we always come home to a quiet and calm Sophie. Since she can be slightly barky when you're gone, an apartment setting is probably not a good idea. Once she is settled into her home and knows the ropes, she does very well at not having accidents in the house as long as you are good at letting her out consistently. She takes a little longer to potty when out on a tie-out because she needs to inspect and make sure that her surroundings are safe. She really shows her goofy side and potties right away in a fenced in yard, so we would love to see her go to a home with a fenced in yard but it's not a requirement. Sophie is the sweetest girl in the world and once she knows you're a friend, she will be your best friend for life. She would love to find a calm and loving home who is excited to show her that this world is not so scary. If Sophie sounds like the forever dog you've been looking for, please fill out an adoption application and meet her. This girl sure is a catch and will make one lucky family incredibly happy!

Foster Home Feedback * Older considerate children only 1/28/17 Volunteer Feedback: Phin has been at our building for some time now but always has a wiggle butt and some piggy noises for me when it his turn for one on one time. Phin would do best in a home that is low key and not so busy with people coming and going. He loves to be with his people. He always seems up for a walk or snuggles on the couch but as long as it is with you, he will be content. He can get mouthy at times which all the wonderful volunteers have been working on with him. He has only tried to mouth once with me, but he redirected perfectly with his special treats. He has not tried again, but I do not play in his face or tug of war with him. He does have some allergy issues which he has to be on special food and treats, but his love for you in return will be so worth it. I like seeing Phin when I volunteer at the building, BUT I would love it even more, to see him in a foster home or forever home. 1/27/17 Volunteer Feedback: I always look forward to seeing Phin on my shifts at the shelter; he has quickly become one of my favorites. He has such a great personality and fun to be around. He is very smart and eager to please. It's hard to see him be stressed at the shelter, so I took him home for a couple hours and he was such a good house guest! He played a little bit but was much more interested in snuggling and looking out the window. This guy loves his people and truly deserves a family of his own. Please consider fostering or adopting this guy! 11/7/16: Phin can't believe this nice fall weather we have been having lately. He loves to romp around the yard and check to see if his neighborhood friends are outside frolicking about. Phin has enjoyed a couple of bonfires and did great with our company. He keeps hearing us talk about what is on the menu for Thanksgiving day and is becoming anxious to see what's in store for him. He wants everyone to know that while he loves going for his daily walks to burn off energy, his all time FAVORITE thing to do is cuddle right up next to you! He is looking forward to the winter months as he knows everyone will be begging him to snuggle on their laps to keep them warm! 9/14/16: We have been attending Down Dog Studio to work on Phin's obedience training using the positive reinforcement method. He has done really well in such a short amount of time. He understands sit, down, and touch. We are working on stay, release, etc. and loose leash walking. He is very treat motivated! I highly recommend continuing his training efforts after adoption. He loves proving himself to you and it is great for his confidence and the expectations of the family. Phin does well on his walks. We use the Freedom Harness to avoid pulling as much as possible, and it's also easier on his skin as it has a velvety touch. So far he doesn't mind dogs across the street or behind a fence, however, we use caution as he is reactive with our neighbors male dog through the fence. He should have daily walks/runs to burn off built up energy as he can become hyper with the "in house zoomies"/mouthiness otherwise. Letting him roam the backyard is not quite enough stimulation. We have been working hard to get Phin's allergies (diet and environmental) managed. He is now on a new diet, Zignature brand with White Fish formula, which is a limited ingredient food. He had a recent re-check appt with his Doctors for his skin issues, which overall has improved. We're also working on clearing up his ears from yeast, which is most likely a secondary issue due to his allergies. He requires a daily prescription Apoquel year around to keep itchiness at bay. He can also take Benadryl. He takes his pills like a champ using peanut butter! Phin understands there are cats who also reside with us. We have let him briefly meet one our more sociable cats while he is on his leash. He was overall good, however, when he tries to initiate play, he doesn't understand his size and strength. I wouldn't recommend cats, but maybe that is something you can work with him on over time. Interactions should be supervised at all times. He is a very big old baby who loves to snuggle on your lap whenever possible! 8/25/16: Ruff! Phin here! Now that I have been in foster for a few days, I'm coming out of my shell more as well as feeling a bit better after takings my meds and having a soothing medicated shampoo/conditioning bath... I find myself wanting to play and interact more with people. I've been told I need to watch my mouthiness during play as it is not appreciated. We are going to start dog obedience training classes soon. I have a favor to ask, whomever adopts me, will you please continue my training classes so I can be the BEST dog I can be? I just want to make you happy! 8/23/16: Hey, Phinneas here! You can call me Phin for short, my foster calls me "Phinnie Winnie". I don't mind, as long as the dogs in the neighborhood don't catch wind of this. I just moved into a great foster home while I wait for my perfect furever family. Feels great to not stay at the building anymore as now I get more freedom. There are two small dogs in this home. Apparently, the female Chihuahua mix is the alpha... Hopefully my buddies aren't reading this, how embarrassing, I'll never hear the end of it!! Nonetheless, we get along great. The other dog, is a bit shy of me yet, so we'll take it slowly. I am a total ham, I know how to play the "cute card" to get my snuggles in.... Oh, I gotta go for now. Time for my daily meds, my skin itches! I'll journal more later... Sending lots of licks! 8/23/16: Meet Phin! Phin is a handsome, muscular, laid back, mellow dog for only being two years old and change. His favorite thing to do is lay fully across your lap while we Netflix and chill. I am jealous for whomever has him during those harsh winter months. He does well with our two mellow, laid back small dogs. I'd say Phin is low to medium energy dog. When outside, he generally likes to find somewhere comfy to rest and take in the sunshine and the many different smells of the outdoors. He would do best in a yard with a wooden fence (does require fence of some type) as he can become a little mouthy/forceful if there is a reactive dog nearby. Phin is currently being treated for an ear infection and possible allergy to food or environment. He does very well inside our home. He keeps quiet and waits his turn at meal times. We do have cats, but he hasn't been tested yet as he is learning the routine of our home first. He is potty trained and kennel trained. He doesn't wine or bark in his kennel, unless he hears something out of the ordinary. He also does great on car rides! We are currently working on some general commands. Phin is very food/treat motivated. 5/22/16: Phinneas is a total lap dog - he loves to cuddle. He is good with other dogs. He hasn't been around cats while with us. Phin is a great partner when playing fetch. He likes to check out what you've got on the kitchen counters, but he listens well and will get right down when you tell him no. He is potty and kennel trained. Phinneas will be a fun dog to play with in the summer, and a great lap warmer in the winter!

Foster Home Feedback * NO Cats 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
