Our mail server does not support it so we can not reply to your inquiries To fill out an adoption application for this dog please visit www.WolfSpiritsRescue.com Nelson had his dental yesterday His second since he has been in rescue. Yesterday had to have the remaining teeth removed so he has no teeth now. He's doing well...........friendly, happy and active. He eats very well! His only issue is housebreaking, which he just doesn't seem to understand. He does use pee pads.. It takes him awhile to settle down in a lap for a cuddle and he's a little wary of strangers, but not for long. Sweet little Nelson is a timid boy with so much love to give! He was very matted and underweight when he was rescued, but his fluffy white coat is growing back nicely following his emergency "haircut" and he's starting to put on some much needed weight. He is still nervous about being picked up but sooooo happy when he realizes that is means he's going outside or spending time cuddling on a lap! He loves to run around in a fenced yard and is learning to come when he is called. He is used to a fenced yard and still considered a flight risk. He would need a fenced yard or an exercise pen until he is comfortable walking on a leash. He does not really walk on a leash He is afraid of being confined.

More About Maltese Breed
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.

She's 2 yrs old and terrified of everything. She will be fostered by Nicole and once she has learned to trust she will be available for adoption. Her foster mom sent us this update >"Little miss Dixie is really starting to show some personality. She is out and about all the time now and very playful. Always grabbing a toy and engaging in play with the other dogs. She comes very close to me now and even barks at me when she wants to be fed or I talk to her. I won't be surprised if I'm able to touch her before Emma. Still too afraid to go out but wants to badly. extremely playful, always willing to play and interact with each other and the other dogs. Dixie got hold of an empty bread bag the other day and entertained herself for 20 minutes with it. She tore it up and barked at it and raced around the house with it. She was having so much fun, I didn't have the heart to stop her, so I just cleaned it up when she was done! Peole may not think that's a big deal, but considering that she never left her crate for 4 weeks and cowered if you even looked her way, it really is!" Dixie still has some trust issues but with the someone that has patience and lots of love she will learn to trust . Her foster mom will be very picky as to where she goes so if you think you are the right family for Dixie please fill out out application for her and we'll be in touch.

She apparently just couldn't get the potty outside concept in her new home. She needs someone with a fenced yard and some patience. Sadie is back in her foster home playing with her Dane so another big dog that likes to play would be great. Sadie a 6 yr old breeder release German Shepherd. She loves people of all ages and would be a great one to tag along on walks or rides. Sadie is a strong girl and needs someone that is capable of handling her. She pulls on a leash yet but her foster home is working with her on this. She seems to be a little nervous when she gets too far from the house and pulls to get back inside. Sadie is good with other dogs. She gets a little too excited when around them and does have to be monitored when first meetings happen. Her feet are big and she doesn't know her strength. We do not recommend a home with someone that has small dogs or small children. She has been around cats and will at times bark and chase them. Sadie know "come" "lay down" and learning "sit and stay" Her biggest hurdle though will be walking on a leash and not dragging her human.

Our mail server does not support it so we can not reply to your inquiries To fill out an adoption application for this dog please visit www.WolfSpiritsRescue.com Ellie went into the vet clinic for a spay, dental and tumor removal. They did her dental first and it was very extensive. Ellie lost all of her teeth as well as some blood so the vet decided it was best to wait to do her spay and tumor removal until another time. Her bill came to $464.22. Once Ellie is healed she will go in for her spay and tumor removal which will be added onto her bill. Please sponsor Ellie so that we can get her vet bill paid off. Her adoption fee is $275 which will not even cover half of her vetting. https://paypal.me/wolfspiritsrescue She isn't ready for adoption just yet. She still needs to be spayed and have a tumor removed. She's had a very extensive dental and all of her teeth were removed so she will need to continue on a soft diet. Right now she is eating a raw diet from Blue Ridge Beef but we also feed Organix canned. She is still pretty shy and frightens easily. She will run from us when we try to pick her up. I know one day she will overcome her fears. Ellie needs a home with someone that is willing to accept the fact that she may not be totally trusting. Years in a mill being neglected and ignored do take a toll on some dogs. Ellie is still very timid with people and will need a home with someone with patience who understands puppy mill dogs. She needs a quiet home with no small children since she frightens so easily. Ellie would like another companion to play with though Look at the markings on this shy girl. She's a breeder release 6 yr old Doxie. She's pretty timid and not trusting of people. She will need a dental cleaning probably with extractions so she could use a few sponsors to help with her bills. She also has a lump on her belly that will need to be removed when she is spayed. Her foster mom thinks she is awesome. She was an angel getting those long claws trimmed. Ellie could use your help with her vet bills.

She's always out and usually in the same room as me, watching everything. If she's laying on the floor, I can walk right past her now and get very close with out her moving. She willingly takes treats from our hands and I can touch her nose. I sit on the floor and all my dogs jump on me and go crazy! Both Emma and Dixie want to join in and they get very close. They are just dying to be loved! Sadly, hands are still just a little scary, but Emma is SO close!" She will need a home with lots of patience and love to help her overcome some of her fears yet. In time, we believe that she will learn to love cuddling with her favorite person. Emma's foster mom would love to answer any questions you have about her to see if Emma is the perfect match for you.

When left alone she will at times bark constantly until her people come home. Libbby needs someone that can take her with them when they go someplace or understand that she will make a mess at times in a cage. She loves her people and so nervous when she can't see them. Libby is a challenge to some but she is the sweetest little girl who wants nothing more than to be with her people and be loved. Libby had her spay and dental this week. Libby had 4 teeth removed so on soft for for 5 days. She did really well and will be ready for someone to spoil her as soon as she is healed. Poor baby has been bred over and over. She is a 5-6 yr old Boston Terrier. Now she is safe with us and will make someone an awesome buddy. She's needs to put on some weight as her spine sticks out a bit. This shy girl could use a sponsor to help with her vetting costs. She's a very strong girl who is still somewhat shy. Libby has started to show some signs of separation anxiety. She does bark for a while when her temporary foster mom leaves the home. Libby is slowing gaining weight but she's so active seems to be running off what she gains. Her temp foster family has houseguests and Libby has reverted a little. She has forgotten what to do outside and is pacing until she gets attention. She can open a cupboard in a flash and lift that toilet lid up if not watched. She's a smart cookie but needs someone to keep a constant eye on her. Libby tries to get the other dogs attention to play and will body slam them until they either play or get upset with her. She's so full of antics her foster family has no idea what she'll do next to keep them laughing. 7 journal entries costing $ 416.19

She still does not like a leash so we feel a home with a fenced yard would be best for her. Rain gets a little too excited and doesn't come when called so care when doors to the outside are opened. She would be gone in a flash if given the chance. Rain loves to run yet loves to cuddle as well. Rain is a climber so no doggy doors or short fencing for her. And absolutely no tie outs for this little girl she is just too active and would get hurt. Rain needs to be monitored when she has her time outside.

Alopecia - hair loss on his legs This little stinker is Clyde, who along with Bonnie, were taken to a shelter to be euthanized since their owner passed and the son didn't want them. Thankfully the shelter didn't feel that way and an awesome angel pulled them from the shelter. Stinky and nails curling under, his angel bathed him and trimmed his nails to help him feel more comfortable before helping transport him to us. His teeth are horrible and his mouth infected that it was effecting his sinsus and making his eye goopy. He is on antibiotics to clear up some of the infection before having his teeth cleaned and some removed. He does have some teeth missing now and a part of his tongue has a piece missing from where his tooth was. He is missing hair on the bottom part of his legs. We will be doing blood work on him to see if we can determine what is causing it. Clyde is a sweet boy who loves attention and a soft warm bed. He likes to climb up on the back of the couch to watch what is going on in the house. Clyde would be a great for someone that wants a lap dog or a shadow. He is a little cuddle bug who wants nothing more than to please his people Clyde could use some more Angels to help pay for his medical bills since dentals are expensive but very necessary.

Yes, we are expanding since there are so many dogs that need a home. Help us help them to safety. So many have a sad story and just need a little love and attention to help them blossom into happy/trusting companions. Won't you help them by providing a temporary home for them? Thinking of adoption but not sure ? What a great way to see if a particular dog is the right fit for you too. The more foster homes we have the more we can all save together. Some need fenced yards while others don't. Some are not good with young children. We will let our foster homes know everything we know about each particular dog prior to them fostering them. All dogs are isolated for a minimum of two weeks so that our foster homes' own pets are not in danger of catching something contagious ( kennel cough, etc ) They are completely vetted prior to coming to your home. We provide heartworm prevention for each foster dog as well as all vet expenses. All we ask is that our foster homes provide lots of love, patience, understanding, a premimum quality food, and a crate for training. Foster homes will also provide monthly updates including pictures to be posted on our web site. Please email for more details if you are interested in fostering.

Scared and not trusting, the volunteers there worked with her everyday to help her overcome those fears. Today she is happy to meet people and will wiggle into their hearts right away. Claire loves meeting people so taking her with you shopping, etc would make her happy. Just don't leave her in the car by herself. She is small so we don't recommend her for a family that has young children not used to being around little ones. Families with children that are older would be best for Claire. She loves sitting her their laps showering them with kisses. Claire's idea home would be with someone that does not have other dogs so that she can be the center of attention. She loves being with her people and cuddling on the couch with them. She lives in her foster home with other dogs and will grump and groan at times but they just ignore her. Although she walks well on a leash she does perfer fenced area to potty in so that she can walk around freely. She is NOT to be trusted out of her area or off her leash. Remember she was a stray so wandered off from someone. A simple exercise pen for pets or toddlers will be perfect for her. NO tie outs. Her back legs are a little wobbly at times but she can run just as fast as any of the other dogs in her foster family. She apparently had an injury to her eye before being picked up by the dog warden. We applied an ointment 3 times a day and her little scratch has healed but she has the start of a cataract. We have heard people taking their pets in to remove cataracts but sadly that isn't something we are able to do for her but it is a possiblity for her new owner Journal Summary13 journal entries costing $ 628.26
