Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (medium coat). Birthdate (estimated): Hello, I'm Amelia! I am a beautiful, sweet, smart, loyal and loving girl. I hail from the Pine Ridge Reservation and it is believed that I may have been a tribal officer's dog - I heel well, I sit, stay/wait, down, kennel and heel- and if I love and respect you enough I'll listen ;-) I came with a recent head wound, believed to be gunshot, which entered the top of my head and exited through my right eye, leaving me blind in that eye. I am completely healed and have adjusted well to the loss though. I LOVE car rides, I don't care what type of vehicle you have! I just want to be with you and sit looking out the window! I am a VERY energetic girl, and would love a family who will burn off the energy with me. Going for runs, playing fetch in the back yard, etc. An active home will be the best home for me. I will gladly lay quietly with you though, keeping you company. I look forward to finding my forever family, could that be you? Special Requirements: - A fully fenced yard, at least 6' high is a must. I am very athletic, and could easily jump anything shorter to chase after a bunny/squirrel/bird. - I need to be an only animal, as I do not get along with any others. If you are considering me, please understand that social outings will need to be very controlled as I am not a fan of other dogs. - A loving home with medium to high activity level, whether it be going for walks, runs or playing in the backyard. I love to work and play. - Fearful of fireworks, gunshots, etc. So no Fourth of July outings for me. Adoption fee is $125. Submit an Adoption Application * All animals are in foster homes located throughout the Twin Cities & Central Minnesota. We do not have a facility. *

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

I am a very sweet and affectionate girl, who very much enjoys being close to my humans. I'm also very smart, and eager to please. I am well trained and know basic commands such as sit, come, down, wait. I'm also kennel trained, although I am a really good girl and do not need to be kenneled. I love playing with dogs and toys! But most of all, I love being with my people! I will require a family with a fenced in yard. Because of my breed, I am much more inclined to follow a scent and I very much enjoy being outside. A fenced in yard will allow me to enjoy the outdoors while staying safe. I would love a family of my own - one who will spoil me and love me forever! Could that be you?

I joined Ruff Start Rescue from a shelter in Louisiana. My foster mom says I am a sweet girl who will make a family very happy. I am being fostered with other dogs and do very well with all of them, although I would do best as an only dog because I have poor eyesight and don't care for when another dog is in my space. I will require softened food for the remainder of my life because I had really bad teeth. Many of them were removed in my last dental, so I don't have many teeth for kibble. I enjoy playing with toys, and will sleep in the dog be. Do I sound like the girl for you? I'd love to meet you!

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Name: Ty DOB: 05/10/14 estimated Weight: 90 lbs Adoption Fee: $125 Hello, my name is Ty and I'm a very good boy. Somehow I found myself wandering around the countryside and then getting picked up by animal control. They were real good to me and worked really hard to find Ruff Start Rescue to help save my life. But, it was still a scary place and I'm so happy to be in a home, with a warm bed and a full belly. From the whispers I've heard, I think I was close to being put down. I'm not sure what that means, but it don't sound good. I really like to snuggle with my foster mom and play with my toys outside! The one thing the scares me most is going to the vet. I think I had a bad experience once or something, but I do get really scared and I need a calm and patient human who will understand my "vet-phobia" and help me get through it (but I have seen the vet since being with Ruff Start and I'm doing much better). I am the easiest boy ever my foster mama says. I am so sweet and loving. I will keep her company with my big snuggles until I find my forever family! I'd love to meet you.

I love to play and cuddle and I really love humans. I do OK with other dogs but previously I had some run ins with smaller critters, and didn't get along with them as well, so I would do best in a home with just dogs. I may learn over time not to chase cats or other critters, but I would need someone to be patient and work with me on that. I'm not a fan of being alone so if I could be with someone that is home most of the time that would be great! If you do need to leave me alone I don't like the kennel at all but I can be trusted out alone for a few hours. With that said I'm do pretty good at doing the potty thing outside as long as I'm on a schedule. I would love to meet you!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Name: Promise DOB: 10/19/09 estimated Weight: 45 lbs Adoption Fee: $280 My name is Promise and I am practically perfect. My foster family says am such a good girl! I love my 13 yr old foster human and my foster Mom. I also LOVE walks!! I would make a great walking or running partner!!! I like to sleep with you in bed, but I’m also real quiet in my crate. I only bark if someone is at the door or drives into the yard. I am so good outside that my Mom doesn’t even put me on a leash anymore. I don’t wander very far from her and I come immediately when I am called. I am a great listener! There is a grouchy old wiener dog that lives here and I get along with him just fine. There’s a cat here, but she hides 99% of the time so I only see a flash of her every so often. When I do see her, I like to chase her, so I probably would do best in a home without them. I had a tough life before I came here and I am very afraid of new things. Loud or fast movements scare me, so slow introductions to both new humans and animals is a must so I can feel comfortable. Men especially scare me but one has recently moved in here and I have very slowly accepted him. I have decided he is ok and I let him stay! My foster Mom says anyone who gets me is going to be very lucky! If you are interested in me, please fill out an adoption application at www.ruffstartrescue.org.

      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). Name: Bradley DOB: 02/16/16 estimated Weight: 48 lbs Adoption Fee: $300 Hello, my name is Bradley. I joined Ruff Start Rescue from a local shelter and while I am super happy to be in a home, I am still getting used to the new people, places and sounds. I am looking for a very special family! One who will be patient with me and will help me to overcome my fears. The ideal family for me would have another dog, would have a quiet environment, a fenced in yard, and would continue slow and proper socialization as I come out of my shell. Plus, I just love other dogs. I am very smart when it comes to playing, and have never met a dog that I don't like. My foster mom has been really helpful to me! She is very enthusiastic about my accomplishments and when I bravely conquer one of my fears. When she gets excited, I get excited and we have a big celebration. This has made me proud and more eager to try new things. I am learning to play and trust people. I have gotten more comfortable about approaching her for pets and kisses. I'm even brave enough to snuggle with her at bedtime. I have amazing leash manners, and never pull. I am very in tune with my humans and always know where they are. Could you be the family I've been waiting for? Could I be the dog you've be searching for? If so, I would love to meet you!

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Schnauzer / Mixed (short coat). Name: Markie DOB: 08/30/14 estimated Weight: 18 lbs Adoption Fee: $125 Hello, my name is Scruff (Markie). My foster mom changed my name because I would never come to it :) I came from the streets of Houston where I was rescued and brought to the humane society. There were a lot of dogs there, so they reached out to other rescues for help. I have been with my foster family for almost 7 months now. During this time I have been learning to trust people and my listening skills. I am great with other playful dogs, I will chase kitties if they run but otherwise leave alone. I do well in a kennel for the day but I have been spoiled by getting to sleep on my foster parents bed. (Due to his fear, we have let him to get used to my husband). I am really struggling with walking on a leash, I still try to wiggle out and escape. I would do better in a big fenced in yard where I can run. I don't like loud voices or yelling, I will run away. I am very cautious of new people and ask that you let me take the time to get to know them on my own. I am very fearful of kids so I would prefer a family with older kids. I do like women and will always go to them, but I am still working on my fear of men. Foster mom here: Scruff is a very good boy, it has taken us a long time to get him to where he is. He will come when called (after a bit), he will come to you to cuddle but only on his terms and we have yet to pick him up. He does not like loud voices at all and will cower and run, due to his past (though I don't know it) he is still afraid of men and kids. But if you have time and love he will be the perfect little imperfect dog. If you are interested in me, please fill out an adoption application at www.ruffstartrescue.org.

I guess you’d like to know a little bit about me! I’m a curious girl. I love to sniff around at things, explore, and investigate My foster mom calls me “energetic,” which I guess is true. But I just love to chase balls, chew on bones and toys, and stay busy. I also love to run and play in the yard. I’m learning how to walk on a leash and everyone thinks I will catch on to that very quickly. I like to give kisses and affection, and I really enjoy a good belly rub! I currently live with a thing my family calls a “cat,” I am very curious about her but leave her alone, mostly because she is cranky and doesn't seem to want to play with me. I like when people come visit, but sometimes I get sooo excited because I’m still learning about manners. Occasionally my enthusiasm is misunderstood so I’m trying to learn to stay calm when I meet people and other dogs. Because I’m silly and happy, I think it’s fun to be the center of attention, but eventually I calm down. I have a kennel where I snooze when my foster family leaves for longer periods of time, but mostly I like to be as close to people as possible. I would really flourish in a single pet household, but I ‘m such a smart little girl that maybe with time and learning manners, I could stay calm around other animals. Everyone that meets me falls in love with me because I am small, have a cute face, and my fur is beautifully colored. I am really looking for a forever family to call my own.

Name: Zeena DOB: 05/04/12 estimated Weight: 35 lbs Adoption Fee: $125 Zeena is a gorgeous girl who is eager to please and has tons of love to give! She was found by her foster wandering the streets in pretty rough shape. Since she is so much happier and healthier now, she's so excited about life! Zeena does have a high prey drive and doesn't always do well with small dogs or cats (and is very interested in squirrels/rabbits/etc.). She does have the ability to climb fences (though privacy fences are harder to climb). Zeena will need to be tethered/leashed/fenced with supervision because she has the tenancy to chase after things. Zeena is very playful and energetic and would make a good running partner, but needs some leash training. She does well with other dogs her size or larger and just loves to play! Because she loves playing so much, she can be vocal, which may sound scary, but it's just her way of being excited! Zeena is crate trained, house trained and knows a few basic commands. Zeena is an incredible girl and will make an amazing companion! Like all of us humans, she's a bit rough around the edges and maybe a little misunderstood. She needs someone who is willing to put in the time and work and be dedicated to her, and in return, she'll give so much love back to you! PS.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Name: Kojo DOB: 01/06/16 estimated Weight: 52 lbs Adoption Fee: $300 Hello, my name is Kojo! I’m really glad to be here. The place I grew up in wasn’t very nice because the people I lived with hit me with things, so I’m shy of new people at first, especially new men and kids because I expect them to hurt me. I warmed up to my foster mom right away though and now I love her. My foster dad took the time to show me that not all men are mean by being the designated hotdog guy. I love hotdogs and I’m loving my foster dad too. He gives the best cuddles. My foster mom says I'm doing a great job meeting new strangers. They keep inviting new people over to meet me so I'm getting really good at it. I'm barely afraid of anyone anymore because they always have food! One time I was so excited to meet a new person that I jumped right into his lap! B ecause of my past, I would like to live in a house without kids but I think it would probably do me good to live with a man because he could keep working with me to see that there’s nothing to fear anymore. I am ok with other dogs and am a very friendly boy but I'd be happy to just live with people too. I currently live in a home with two other dogs, an elderly Italian greyhound mix and a hyper female pitbull, and I love them both. My foster mom is still managing our interactions because I am a little too strong for the little dog and I wouldn’t want to accidentally hurt him. I really like the other dogs, but I like my foster mom more so I don't always like to share her. Just like a little kid, I'm having to learn how to share. I already know "sit", "lay down", "on your bed", and we’re working on learning to like being in the kennel. I whine hoping you’ll let me out, but if you don’t give in I’ll quiet down. I’m very quiet at night thought so I won’t wake you up. I'm told I'm the best in the whole house at waiting nicely for dinner; I will sit and watch you .and not touch my food until you say "ok". I do drool while I wait but I just can't help it! I’m young and boisterous, so I could benefit from some basic training to show me the proper way to behave but my foster family are working on that. They say it's really good that I almost never jump. Mostly I just need love and someone willing to give me a few weeks to learn to trust them; once I trust you, I'm the most loyal friend you'll ever have. I'll follow you everywhere. I love to play fetch in the yard, but I haven’t quite figured out that I’m supposed to bring the ball back yet. I’m kind of a goof and sometimes get so excited to chase the ball that I don’t pay attention to what’s in front of me. I really love being petted, especially belly rubs, and will roll all the way onto my back for them! I also LOVE to chew on bones and de-stuff all the stuffies I'm given! I would love a home of my own where I’d never have to worry about being hurt again. Do you have room in your heart for a gorgeous hunk like me? If you are interested in me, please fill out an adoption application at www.ruffstartrescue.org. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal. Once we receive your application, a placement coordinator will be in contact with you as soon as possible. Please check out our website, www.ruffstartrescue.org for more details and additional pictures on any of our animals! All Ruff Start dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, up to date on age appropriate vaccines, microchipped, dewormed, and on monthly flea/tick and heartworm prevention (dogs) as well as heartworm tested (dogs). Ruff Start Rescue is a foster based rescue. Animals are located in homes throughout Minnesota. We do not have a facility where animals are kept.
