    Gretta

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Mutt
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Shepherd / 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: 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 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; No Apartments; 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. 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 back yard 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 loveable 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 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.

    Durand

    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    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. Statistics Name: Durand Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix Age: 1.5 Years Size: Large 73 lbs. ~Large range: 61 - 100 lbs Adoption Donation: $75 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, Vaccinations current, Microchip, Older considerate children, No other pets in home Durand would love to go for a run with you! Give him your love! Foster Home Feedback * Older considerate children, No other pets in home 7/14/17: Durand has been at our house a few months now. He is a big goof ball and it's never boring with Durand around. While we joke that he is a big dopy dog with not a lot going on his head, he does know sit, lay down, and will walk nicely on a leash. Durand loves laying out in the yard and enjoying the sun when we are home. He also has a few toys that he loves to run around with in the yard. Durand is fairly low energy dog. He loves to run around the yard and go for walks, but he is also ok just hanging in the house on a hot day and enjoying the air conditioning. Durand also kennels well and is quite in his kennel. While we let him out every 4 hours or, so he could go a full 8 hour day without being let out and would be ok. Durand is great in public. Don’t be scared off by the only dog in the home requirement. He can be taken to a pet store and be around other leashed dogs or to a public place and everyone will love him. He does well in public with other dogs, he just has not done well sharing his living space with another dog. We have a chain link fence, our neighbor has 2 large male dogs and he is fine with them being in their own yard. Durand loves car rides as long as he can stick his head out the window. If you are looking for a big goofy dog to keep you company and always make you smile, Durand is your dog. 4/8/17 Volunteer Feedback: Durand is such a big goofy boy! He has the most beautiful coloring and a big blockhead. He has come a long way with the help of some pretty amazing volunteers. Even though Durand doesn't enjoy other dogs in a home that just means he wants to be your one and only love. Durand loves to go for long walks and play in the back kennel run at the building. From my time with him, he enjoys meeting new people and getting lots of squishes. He is easy to leash up and is well behaved in his kennel. Durand is kennel trained and always keeps it clean, and is happy to enjoy a frozen Kong while hanging in the office. Durand is very smart and treat motivated which has helped him develop his manners and continue on his training path. Please consider giving Durand a shot at a forever home. 4/1/17: Now that spring is here, Durand is looking for someone to enjoy the outdoors with! Durand is such a sweet boy! He is really starting to grow up from puppy to dog. He is kennel trained and has come a long way in walking on a leash and training in general. He has, however, decided that he needs to be the only pet in the home. Durand does well with supervised play dates, and in general, he gets along with other dogs. But in the home, he doesn't like to share the attention. Durand loves to cuddle and loves people and will make a great addition to the right home! 1/26/17: Durand is such a sweet and smart guy, and so cute! He reminds me every day, with his energy, that he is indeed a puppy. As a result, he needs daily mental and physical challenges with training and exercise to help release his energy in positive ways. Durand LOVES people and does great around new people. He especially loves his people; however, due to this, he can get competitive with other pets in the home. This has caused some resource guarding issues at meal and treat time. It may partly be the puppy in him, but it is something that we are currently working on. He will need further training and attention to try to reduce this behavior. Did I mention he is a ROCKSTAR when training? We go to a foster training class every week which focuses on treat-based/clicker training (positive reinforcement). He listens very well during training sessions and has caught on quickly; including stay, which is a hard one. He is fully kennel trained and does very well when it's time to go into the kennel; it's definitely his space where he can have time to himself. This "Durand' time usually includes a frozen peanut butter Kong and I turn the radio on for him as well; classical of course as he's very refined for his age! He really is a special guy and he's just looking for the right home to grow up in. 11/29/16: Freedom has made Durand a new puppy! He is such a quick learner and has done very well with treat-based training. We started using a gentle leader on walks and it's made all the difference; he's really becoming a rockstar and corrects easily if he starts to pull. Durand does want to meet the dogs that he sees, in a playful way, that's his biggest distraction... that and people; he LOVES people!! He still needs some reminders when walking but he's unrecognizable from when he first started. He will jump when first meeting someone so I instruct people to simply turn their backs to him until he stops. Also, the mouthing (play biting) has reduced significantly as he realized he gets more people time if he isn't mouthy. He's gone full days without doing it at all! Durand kennels well during the day and gets a break when I come home for lunch. He sleeps quietly in a dog bed at night but I know he'd rather be on the bed as he is a cuddler. He is such a lover and is going to be the perfect addition to a very lucky family! 11/8/16: Durand is such a sweet puppy who has had a hard time the last couple months. He spent 5 or 6 weeks in a regional pound with only one short walk a week. He is currently in a foster home with a yard to stretch his legs and is settling in, but as a puppy, he has a lot of energy. He's a very smart guy but he needs a patient home to help him learn puppy manners including leash walking and to stop mouthing (play biting). Durand would love a playmate to help him manage his energy and because of his size and the mouthing, he would do best in a home without children.

    Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix

Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. Statistics Name: Marty McFly Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix Age: 10.5 Years Size: Large 73 lbs. ~Large range: 61 - 100 lbs Adoption Donation: $180 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, Vaccinations current, Microchip, No cats ** Marty McFly qualifies for our Seniors for Seniors Program.

If you qualify and are interested in participating in this program, please fill out an application online and type "SENIOR" after your name. Marty McFly is back from the future and wants to have his great forever home to apply today (please?)... Foster Home Feedback * NO Cats 5/20/17: Marty has been doing so well at adoption day events! He has never been a timid or shy dog, but sometimes he tends to get a little nervous in new situations and places. His anxiousness has never been an issue for his behavior, all he really needs is some extra love and comfort which he finds in all the people he meets at PetSmart! He isn't shy about going right up to people and waiting patiently by their side for some head rubs. Marty isn't phased at all about the other dogs barking or kids getting close to him, or at all the attention he gets by his natural good looks. He's pretty much a dream dog when it comes to not causing a scene and going with the flow! He also definitely has a "comfort zone" when we let him outside to do his business. We have a large, fenced in yard but Marty doesn't stray more than a few feet off the deck and when he's finished he returns to the door to wait for you to let him inside right away. He's eager to be by your side again where he likes it the most. He's still on his prescription diet dog food. While Marty gets very excited and slobbery when it comes to dinner time, we always make him calm down and "sit" before putting the food down for him and he does without an issue. Any flare-ups of diarrhea he has are generally caused by food outside of his norm (or excess stress) so we still keep to a very strict diet of only his dog food for meals and treats. That means no other treats or human food to keep his tummy happy and healthy. Marty is pretty reliable for cuddling with you whenever you have a lap he can lay in. You have my word when I say that he will never chew up toys or things around the house when left alone, bark at the mailman or any visitor, and never show aggression towards a person or another dog. Give this sweet old man a chance to prove how loyal he can be! 4/26/17: Marty has been staying with me this week while his foster family is on vacation. From the minute he wakes up until he falls asleep at night, his tail is wagging. We live on a farm so when we go for walks, he gets to stretch his legs and do some running but always stays close by and wants to keep his people in his sight. He listens well and comes when he is called. Marty is a nervous dog and doesn’t like sudden, loud noises but quickly settles down when reassured that everything is ok. He loves to cuddle on the couch and has fur that feels like velvet. If you are looking for a good walking partner and someone to relax with you while you’re watching TV, please consider Marty for your pal! 1/28/17: Marty is still looking for his forever home!! We've slowwwly been transitioning from his prescription food to a healthy limited-ingredient formula dry dog food. We've been doing this slower than usual because we didn't want prior digestive issues to pop up again. We are happy to say that half-way through his transition, he's been doing wonderful and there have been no issues! We would expect for this to continue and for him to be on his new dog food completely in another 2 weeks. His weight is normal but his appetite is still ravenous! We are still feeding 3x a day, but have cut back his noon-time portion. Other than that, there isn't much to report! He has been a very laid back dog to foster. Once he finds a routine, he's a very happy camper 12/28/16: Marty's intestinal issues are largely under control. In January, he will start to wean off of his prescription food! Marty is a sweet older guy that's had a rough couple of months and is looking for his forever home! 10/15/16: We've had Marty almost 4 months now and is getting very comfortable in our home. He listens very well to us and knows to come, sit, stay, and no. He has learned boundaries, and which rooms I don't allow him in and when I go into that room, he stays outside the door and waits. He sleeps in his big dog bed, next to our bed, comfortably all night long. At first, he wanted to jump up into the bed. With persistence and consistency, he knows where to go now when it's time for bed. During the day when I'm working from home, he naps in my office and keeps me company all day. He rarely bothers me at all, but when he does need something, he will nudge my arm or go and stand in the hallway. He loves to keep a close eye on me so whenever I get up and do something, he will be sure to follow! He loves watching TV with me! He is very curious at the sounds and the moving pictures and will perk up and tilt his head at certain parts of the program, or he will even get up from his comfy cuddle place and go check out the TV closer. It's the cutest thing! In our home, we have stopped kenneling him and he has settled down and relaxed a ton. When we are gone, he roams in a limited area between the kitchen and living room, and as long as the garbage and food on the counters are put away, we have had zero issues with him getting into things he shouldn't, and zero accidents! We have learned that in new environments without us around he can be a bit mischievous, so a close eye on him is recommended. Marty is still looking for his cuddle buddy and best friend. He will do best in a home where someone is with him most of the time. Marty is such a sweet guy, he's waiting for your love and affection! 9/19/16: Things with Marty the past couple months have been only been getting better! (Back in the early part of June, he had to have some rotten teeth removed, and that surgery on top of being in the shelter really stressed him out. He was having some major issues with his loose stools, and he had also lost about 15 pounds of weight, but we thought once he was in a home with lots of love things would get better. However, not much had improved in terms of gaining weight or forming stools so the Vet switched up his food to a strict hydrolyzed protein diet plus other medications for Irritable Bowel Syndrome.) It has taken a few months and another hospitalization but I can honestly say things are SO MUCH BETTER! He's back up to a healthy weight and his stools are firm. We currently have him on hydrolyzed protein dry food, a dry herbal supplement sprinkled over his food, a steroid that he takes once every 3 days, and a fatty acid supplement, which he will be done with soon. For treats, he gets his dry food for now because we don't want to upset his tummy too much, but honestly, he doesn't know the difference. Marty's happy with ANY food and he even has quite the happy dance when he knows it's time to eat! He loves catching his treats up in the air in between meal times... he is really good at it too! As for the kennel... it is NOT his favorite. The poor guy has some serious abandonment issues and will happily follow you around the house all day long, but as soon as he goes in the kennel, he gets pretty worked up and barks. In fact, the ONLY time he ever barks is when he's in the kennel or left alone outside. I have had some success using treats and food as a reward, but even as food-motivated as he is, he still does not like going in the kennel knowing that he will be left alone. I have left him inside my house with my other dog while I'm gone for short periods and he seems to be fine. He is an older dog and does need to go outside to relieve himself every few hours so him being left in a kennel or inside the house would be best if only for shorter periods at a time. Marty is the absolute happiest and best dog when you are able to spend time with him cuddling on the couch or just hanging out at home. He loves to go for walks, to get outside and smell all the smells and chase squirrels. He his quite strong and fast for his age so we use training collars or an easy walker to reduce the pulling and that does help. He does great with other dogs, he actually ignores dogs altogether because all he cares about in his entire world is you! There have been times where other dogs have been barking in the neighbor's yards and he won't blink twice at them. He absolutely loves every person he meets and has such a friendly personality. Marty is the certainly one of the most lovable, affectionate dogs I've known! He's totally stolen my heart! 6/25/16: This guy is such a lover! All he wants is to be right by my side at all times for pets and snuggles. It's pretty adorable, if you didn't know any better you'd think he's been here his whole life! I haven't been crating him at night because he's much happier sleeping in our room on our bed or floor. He loves sniffing out rabbits and squirrels in our backyard too. He hasn't caught any...yet! So Mr. Marty Snuggles has been doing pretty great overall! He's very happy! 6/1/16 Volunteer Feedback: Marty McFly is the most laid back dog I have had the opportunity to spend time with in awhile. He was so easy-going; all he wanted to do was sit next to me, get petted, and give a few gentle kisses. He is the sweetest old man, but he doesn't act his age! He is still a spry young pup inside and his body doesn't seem to slow him down much at all. He is a happy fellow. I don't have any major concerns with Marty, I haven't seen any bad behaviors from him at all. He has met a few dogs at the shelter and has done fine, but because of the environment, more dog testing should be conducted outside the shelter before we can say he is bomb proof. I have not seen him jump up at all, and he doesn't have an overabundance of energy. He really is just a sweet, older guy looking for a nice home to live out his golden days. He does have a specific type of food he eats and is on some meds for some digestive issues, but those are expected to dissipate once he is in a home environment and away from the stress of the shelter. Please consider giving Marty a chance. He is a great, loyal companion that just wants a nice bed or couch to snuggle on. He has totally won my heart, and will no doubt steal yours too!

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 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.

Statistics Name: Lightning Breed: Chihuahua - Rat Terrier Mix Age: 7 Years Size: Small 15 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, Older considerate children (Over 12 yrs. old), ** Also see info in Foster home Feedback Lightning is in need of your TLC; Love him! Foster Home Feedback * Older considerate children (over 12) ** When Lightning came to Rescue he had extremely painful eyes and vision loss associated with untreated, uncontrolled Glaucoma. His vision loss is permanent, but thanks to a dedicated veterinary team (and his equally dedicated foster!) Lightning's glaucoma is under control. He will need to have eye drops for the rest of his life. Adopter(s) will be responsible to refill these medications once the supply 4 Luv of Dog furnishes runs out; the cost of these drops are around $50/month. Without this medication, Lightning's eye pressures will increase and he will be in a lot of pain-- any adopter(s) for Lightning will need to be committed to his ongoing eye care. 5/22/17: Hi, I'm Lightning. I love head scratches & belly rubs; they make me smile. My favorite spot to snooze is under my blanket, on the couch or a bed. I'd do best with older children because if I'm startled, I get scared. I can't see very well, but my daily eye drops ** (See above) help my eyes feel better. It doesn't slow me down from playing with my "foster" siblings! I am house trained, I haven't met any cats yet, AND I know how to "sit" & "lay". My favorite toys are soft ones. While you are out, I can stay in the kennel or just hang out on the couch, under my blanket. 12/13/16: Lightning is a very sweet little man that LOVES to snuggle. He is housebroken and kennel trained. Due to his sight problems, he should go to a home that understands his needs and will go slow around him. He startles easily so a house with young children is not ideal. He is dog-friendly with both small and large dogs but should be around those who respect his space and his shy laid back manner. His favorite place to sleep and hang out is under a nice large plush blanket. To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: www.4luvofdog.org

    Breed: Beagle
    Sex: Male Male

    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Beagle (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: Boston Breed: Beagle Age: 3.5 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 with Boston for him to feel comfortable, so a home within the Fargo-Moorhead radius is preferred. Foster Home Feedback * No Children, Fenced yard required 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

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

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, Older considerate children only * Adoption Donation to help Damon find his forever home! Thank you! Damon wants someone to be his buddy! Foster Home Feedback * Older considerate children only 7/12/17: Damon is still waiting for his forever home! I've had this little guy for over 7 months now. Damon needs someone who can be patient with him. He's still a little growly and nippy when meeting new people; Damon needs that special person to be his best friend and help keep him out of situations uncomfortable for him. When there are guests over, we recommend putting him in his kennel or in another room..that would be best for him...less stressful and also safer for company. Damon is a little sweetheart, he loves to cuddle give kisses and watch tv with me. He gets attached to his person and won't let anyone else touch him...He is a one-person dog! Damon loves to be outside in the sunshine - resting on the deck watching for squirrels and birds. We now have a rabbit that has dug a hole under our fence and dares to come in our fenced in area with 4 dogs...so far he's still around. He's one lucky rabbit and Damon wants to be one lucky dog. Damon is waiting for that special someone to give him a home. 4/21/17: Hi There, Thanks for stopping by Damon's Profile! Now that Spring is here this little guy is looking for the perfect home to care for him. Damon is still a little growly and may nip at you but he means no harm; he is very scared. When meeting new people he needs time to adjust going into a new home is very stressful for some dogs, and Damon is that dog. (I still recommend No kids) in a home for him. Once Damon feels at home and starts to trust you, he will do fine. When I have company over to my house, I put him in a kennel or in my bedroom so he doesn't bark and be scared of my guests. Damon would really adjust better in a home if there was a little dog buddy for him to play with. He loves his walks; he does pull a little bit on a leash, so you have to hang on tight. I would also keep him on a leash at all times when outside because he likes to chase squirrels and birds. If you have a fenced in yard, that would be great so he can run around. Damon likes to sleep with me at night. He's always the first one to bed. I let Damon and my dogs out at 8:30pm before we go to bed and I get up at 4:30am to get ready for work and dogs go outside to do their duty and into their kennel they go, with a treat of course. He is a sweet little dog who just needs time to feel comfortable in his new home. Give this little guy a try. You will adore him. He's waiting for you! 2/6/17: Damon is a WONDERFUL little dog! He's still waiting for his forever home. I've had him 2 months now. You will have to give Damon time to adjust to his new family and home. He will be scared at first but he will be fine. Give him a chance, I know you will love him as much as I do. (He is scared of new people he meets until he gets to know you.) He's potty trained has had a few accidents in the house but that happens. Damon sometimes stands by the back door telling me he has to go outside. He is fine in his kennel when I leave for work. Damon's always so happy to see me when I get home from work, that he jumps in my arms. The first time he did that, he caught me off guard...but now I'm ready to catch him! He's well behaved; likes napping and cuddling with you, and I better not forget, he likes belly rubs too. Damon loves to go for car rides; he jumps right in! He likes to go to the bank with me to see the bank ladies because they give him treats and tell him how cute he is. And he likes to go to PetSmart shopping as you can see in the picture...( He always picks out a treat). Damon likes to chase squirrels in the back yard when they are out eating corn. He likes to go on walks, so if you need a partner, he's your guy. Damon needs to lose a few pounds that he has put on over the winter months. Damon even likes the carrots I give him as a treat. Check little Damon out and see if he's a good fit for you. He's waiting for you! Damon has LOTS of love to give & he would like to snuggle with you! 12/26/16: Damon's a Sweetheart, but he can be a little growly at times, so little kids would not be a good fit for him...Older considerate kids that would treat him kindly. I've had Damon for over 3 weeks now. He was a little scared and fearful when I got him home; it took a few days and he started to trust me. He did have some potty accidents in the house and but has done really well since he's gotten comfortable here. Damon is kenneled for a few hours during the day. He did bark some when I left for work in the mornings, so hopefully, he quit after I left. I do leave the radio on for the dogs when I leave. Damon had eye surgery for "Cherry Eye" and he's looking really good! I do have small/medium size dogs and he gets along with them, but once in awhile, he growls at them because he wants my full attention meaning my dogs should stay. Damon likes car rides, walks and watching tv with you, and he does give me lots of doggie kisses. He sleeps with me at night and loves to be close to me. Damon doesn't like to be outside by himself; he barks until you let him in. Damon would probably like another little dog to play with and keep him company when you're at work and a fenced yard to play in would be great. Damon is a great little Chihuahua Mix is looking for his forever home; get your application in! To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: www.4luvofdog.org

Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Spayed Female, Vaccinations current, Microchip ** Yolanda is eligible for the Foster-To-Adopt program. If you are interested in giving Yolanda a place to crash, but aren't sure if she's the right dog for you OR if you are unsure about her medical needs, this is the program for you! The Foster To Adopt program offers an extended trial period for the adopter and dog to adjust to their new life together. If you have any questions about this program, Yolanda, caring for a dog with diabetes, etc. please email Amy ( homevisit@4luvofdog.org ). * Yolanda was diagnosed as having diabetes. Her foster family works with Yolanda to keep this condition under control so she can live a long and happy life. She will need a forever home committed to keeping her healthy and managing her condition. For more information on diabetes in dogs, please visit the link below: http://pets.webmd.com/dogs/diabetes-dogs-symptoms-treatments-dietary-management Questions: http://www.4luvofdog.org/contact_us.html * Here are links for more info on dogs with diabetes in case it is useful to you: http://www.petdiabetesmonth.com/dog_what_is.asp http://www.vcahospitals.com/main/pet-health-information/article/animal-health/diabetes-mellitus-in-dogs/744 http://www.vetstreet.com/care/diabetes-in-dogs Yolanda is a cute girl who needs your love! Foster Home Feedback 7/11/17: Yolanda has been having so much fun this summer!! She has been to a lot of events and she really enjoys spending time at the lake! She enjoys sunning herself, going for nice walks, and relaxing after a busy day. Yolanda's fosters feel comfortable taking her pretty much anywhere, because they know she is so calm and laid back. She has met a lot of kids and the kids like her as much as she likes the kids! Yoyo does fantastic with being kenneled during the day, she knows the routine well. She still sleeps in her chair or in a dog bed at night, although she will sometimes sleep with her humans if they let her. Yolanda has visited and stayed with her dog-friend Parker and Parker has a cat at her house. Yoyo was interested in the cat at first, but once the novelty of a new 'thing' wore off, she and the cat coexisted nicely together (and Yoyo enjoyed hanging out with her bestie Parker too!) Yolanda is a special girl because of her positive attitude despite her ailments. She has gotten poked and prodded a lot at the veterinarian for treatment of her diabetes but she will always give you a smile and ask for a belly rub once it's over. She has some vision impairment due to cataracts (stemming from her diabetes) but Yolanda does not let it slow her down! Yoyo has the most incredible nose!! She can seriously sniff out anything-- it is so impressive! Yolanda lives her life to the fullest extent everyday and its something to be admired by any human! She can sometimes be a bit stubborn and occasionally has a "little attitude" but it is truly just endearing and will make you love and appreciate her even more. Yolanda has been waiting so patiently for her forever home, and she just wants to start making her new adopters smile-- sooner the better. 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. 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. 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!

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.
