Other: Neutered Male, vaccinations current, microchip * Adoption Donation to help Merlin find his forever home from Dorothy! Thank you! Merlin want to have a magical forever home! Foster Home Feedback 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, 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 keep my legs warm. Merlin does well in a crate but definitely enjoys being around his people. To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: www.4luvofdog.org

A.K.A. : A mongrel, mixed-breed dog
Overview: A mongrel, mutt, or mixed-breed dog, is a dog that is not the result of breeding within an existing breed or to modify or create a breed and belongs to no breed. In the United States, the term "mixed-breed" is a favored synonym over "mongrel" among many who wish to avoid negative connotations associated with the latter term. The implication that such dogs must be a mix of defined breeds may stem from an inverted understanding of the origins of dog breeds. Pure breeds have been, for the most part, artificially created from random-bred populations by human selective breeding with the purpose of enhancing desired physical, behavioral, or temperamental characteristics. Dogs that are not purebred are not necessarily a mix of such defined breeds. Therefore, among experts and fans of such dogs, "Mongrel" is still the preferred term.

More About Mutt 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.

Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. FOSTER HOME NEEDED Statistics Name: Cora Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix Age: 7 Years Size: Medium 57 lbs. Adoption Donation: $75 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Spayed Female, vaccinations current, microchip, No other dogs Cora loves attention...make her your princess! Please?! Foster Home Feedback * Needs to be only dog 9/22/16: Hi there! I'm a bit busy laying on the couch and getting cuddles right now, so I'm having my foster mama type this out for me. I tried to help earlier but slobbered on the screen a little and, frankly, my paws are too big for those keys, so this makes more sense. I've been living here now for the last few weeks and so far it's been amazing. I've pretty much trained the family to let me out when I whine, but to make it easy on them, I usually only ask to go out in the morning and before bed with a little break midday. Foster Mama and the baby go with me on walks around the neighborhood every day and I love it! There are so many things to smell that I sometimes get a little carried away in the beginning, but once I'm familiar with an area, I love to just walk with them and make sure they're safe. I'm also getting pretty good at sitting when it's time to go out. It's tricky for my Foster Mom to put on the lead when she's holding a baby, so I sit to make it easier for her. Since I've gotten here, the family has also taught me a few new tricks. I already knew how to sit, but I'm learning now to "kennel up" and "wait" and even to "spin around!" I already kinda know that last one though...I love to spin and chase my tail when I'm all wound up, but if I do it when they say to I get a treat and I love treats! Most of my days are spent curled up on the couch or floor next to someone. Since the baby and my foster mom are home all day, I pretty much always have company and that's just the way I like it. Sometimes I'll have to go to my kennel for a little bit if everyone goes out and that usually makes me whine a little, but eventually I just get bored and go to sleep. And the best part is when they get home, I always get extra cuddles! Also, just so you know, I love sleeping in that big comfy bed they have here (although Foster Mom says I'm a bed hog). If I take up too much space, though, they make me sleep on the floor which is alright too as long as I have fluffy things to curl up on! I especially like all the pillows on the floor of the baby's room. I don't even mind that he cries in the middle of the night. It just means I get some more company and middle of the night pets, usually. What else can I say? I'm pretty sure that my foster family would be just fine keeping me as long as I need a home, but I'd really love to have a home of my own for always. 9/1/16 Volunteer Feedback: I am baffled that Cora is even at the shelter still. She is the sweetest little lady you could ask for! She is so excited to see her people, eager to please, listens to commands, walks well, takes treats very gently… she is literally just about the perfect dog. If I didn’t have cats and two dogs of my own, she would be in my house! I am so jealous of whoever gets to call this girl theirs forever. She will touch your heart the way she has touched mine. Some people say it’s impossible to fall in love at first sight, well it’s definitely possible with Miss Cora. I love this little lady with my whole heart and every time I get a chance to interact with her, I only grow more and more fond of her. 7/19/16: We have had Cora with us for a few weeks. She is a very sweet girl! She loves kisses and hugs and belly rubs. Cora is content to sleep or lay down next to me, and would do that most of the day if I would sit still. She rides very nicely in a car; loves to go on walks and is good on a leash. (She gets very excited when I pick up her leash). I took her camping a few times and she has met many new people. She was good with all of it. Cora is a champ with bathing. She sleeps by herself in her special green chair but you wouldn't need to ask twice, for her to jump into your bed to sleep with you (she is happy to sleep in and snuggle ) We are working on kenneling and she is making strides (she kennels for short periods with no barking). Cora hasn't been destructive when left alone and out of a kennel. She cries for me for a few minutes but then settles into her chair and sleeps. She gets pretty spunky chasing her tail when she is happy(my kids love this ) Cora really just wants and needs a person of her very own. She has so much love to give. 6/27/16 Volunteer Feedback: Cora is a beautiful girl and I had so much fun volunteering with her this week. She walks very nicely with an easy walk harness. She doesn't pull and likes to saunter along, so she would be easy to walk and a good fit for anyone. She enjoyed stopping to smell the flowers while we were walking. Cora took treats very nicely, she had a clean kennel, and has very nice manners. She is a nice medium size and has short hair so would be a low maintenance dog. Although her previous foster had some separation anxiety issues, she didn't display any anxiety during the time I spent with her. That could certainly be different in a home but she was very calm during our time together. Please consider giving Cora a loving home she so deserves. 5/23/16: Cora is a fantastic dog! Cora has some anxiety issues being left home alone but otherwise perfect dog! She would be an ideal dog for someone who works from home or is home a lot! She's very easy going, calm dog. Great size! Doesn't shed much! Perfect couch buddy! Bomb proof with kids! She had a hurt foot and she still loved all the attention she got from my kids aged 1, 3, and 7. They had bumped her foot quite a few times trying to give her treats and she just moved back. She was a good guard dog from squirrels, bunnies, anything moving in our yard; she would watch them until they were gone or no longer deemed a "threat". She is very willing to play, but won't bug you about it. Cora is perfectly content following you around or laying down next to you. She stands nicely clipping her nails, takes treats nicely out of hand, loves to be brushed/pet, and very easy to give a bath, and fully potty trained. Give her a chance! 4/23/16: So Cora is a great dog. She needs a few days to adjust to a new home, but after she adjusts she's a great dog! After she had adjusted: no accidents, no bad house behavior. She does good with our kids. Aged almost 1yr, 2 1/2, and 8. She loves to play. She loves walks and can be a puller for the first part, but once she calms down she does perfect and matches your pace. Cora is very friendly towards new people. She does need to be worked with on separation issues but even when you leave she does calm down after a bit now so it wouldn't be too hard. She needs work on kenneling, but the past few days I have had her, I haven't needed to kennel her. She is a gorgeous, calmer dog, but will play if you want her too! Cora's been very good!

Foster Home Feedback * Jezebel needs a home with no other pets. * No kids * Prefer Female Owner 10/11/16: Hi! My name is Jezebel. I have so much energy; I just like to go go go. I love going for long runs every day. I am an anxious girl, especially when you leave and sometimes I whine a little, but I am getting better at it. Usually a little attention is all I need and good long belly rub. Exercising me and long walks really helps me calm down when I get nervous. It's taken some adjustment but I am now kennel trained and even go in there on my own to take naps and chew on my bone. I'm completely potty trained, no accidents. I'm also very smart and listen very well when treats are involved. At some point in my life I must have not liked men very much. At my foster home that is not the case and may be something I have overcome. I have been around different guys big and small and only give out lots of kisses and they don't even make me nervous as long as they say "hello." If you are looking for a companion, unlimited kisses, a protector of the house, exercising partner and the sweetest cuddle buddy around; Jezebel is most definitely your girl!

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

Foster Home Feedback 11/16/16: It has been a long journey for Yolanda, but she is finally getting her medical situation sorted out!! Unfortunately, due to her diagnosis of diabetes, her eyesight has deteriorated. She gets around our house perfectly fine since she knows it, but she can occasionally get disoriented. However, once she is in an environment and knows the layout, Yolanda does incredibly well for herself. Every once in a while she just needs a little more guidance and patience to help her get around. Sometimes this is as simple as putting a leash on her and guiding her around, or even using her collar to help direct her. I think Yolanda is happy to have two other dogs in her foster home; they help her out and guide her around in new environments. Despite some vision loss, Yolanda will show you that it does not slow her down one bit! She loves to go on walks and be outdoors. Yolanda can be a little diva in the respect that she LOVES to be pet! She almost begs you to pet her with those big brown eyes of hers. Then once you are petting her and she is comfortable, she rolls on her back so you can give her a nice belly rub! She enjoys a great belly rub. During the day, Yolanda sleeps and relaxes in her kennel. She gets a small snack over the lunch hour to help stabilize her blood sugar. She likes her walk when her foster parents get home from work in the evening. Then, it's supper, followed by a quick insulin shot, and whatever her foster parents want to do! Yolanda is happy to follow her foster parents around the house while they are cleaning or doing laundry, but she also likes to curl up on the couch next to you and relax. At night, Yolanda sleeps on an old wing-back chair in her foster parent's bedroom. She knows it is "her chair" too. Usually, Yolanda has cuddle time with her foster parents on their bed and then when they tell her to go to her chair, she jumps down and sleeps on her chair the rest of the night! She curls up on her chair and sometimes you will need to ask her to get out of it to go outside and get breakfast in the morning. Since gaining weight and getting her medical situation figured out, she has shown a positive interest in other dogs. Yolanda enjoys playing with other dogs and having dog-buddies in the house. She has done well in meeting new dogs and is generally not reactive. Since Yolanda is about 7 years old, she has a very calm disposition and would be good in a home with older, respectful children. Most people that meet Yolanda say only the nicest things--most commonly that she is so sweet and cute! Would Yolanda make a wonderful addition to your home?!? She thinks so! 9/15/16: Hi there! My name is Yoyo and I would really love to settle into a home that will be my furever home! Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I love, love, love humans!!! They make me so happy and I love to be around them. A couple of weekends ago, my foster parents went on vacation, so I got to vacation at a new house for the weekend! The vacation house had kids and I LOVED following them around and keeping an eye on them! They were so fun to hang out with. Sometimes when I meet people, I just get so excited that I roll over on my back and the humans are smart enough to rub my belly! I LOVE BELLY RUBS!!! I must say that I train humans pretty well! During the day when my foster parents are at work I sleep in my kennel. I'm not super thrilled about it, but my other doggie brothers are next to me in their kennels, so they keep me company. My foster humans tell me that I have a medical condition called, Diabeeezuz or something, but I don't even know what that means!! I'm just a normal girl! It is a little strange though, after my morning meal and evening meal, my humans give me another small handful of food in my dish. Then I feel a slight itch between my shoulder blades, but I honestly don't even notice because I'm so happy I'm eating. I think I heard they might be giving me an insulin shot or something, but I could care less because I love eating my food! Did I mention that I LOVE CAR RIDES!!! All of the humans that are lucky enough to hang out with me say how well I ride in the car. OH YIPPEE!! I think I just heard my foster human grab my leash! I wonder if we're going for a WALK!!! Gotta run! Bye now! 8/26/16: Yolanda, known to us as "Yoyo" has been in our home for a couple of weeks now and we have truly enjoyed having her around. At first, she was not too keen about our older male dogs. We crated and rotated for a 4-5 days and let them have minimal interaction. After that, we did some nice and slow introductions with Yoyo to our dogs, and she did much better! With some consistency and working with her to develop better habits, she runs around the house with our dogs now! She loves to play and wrestle with our dogs, does well with social cues from our dogs, and is not reactive when our dogs get cranky. Sometimes when Yoyo plays, she can get a little too amped up, so we try and calm the play down a bit at that point. We first trained Yoyo to sleep in a kennel in our bedroom at night. She did well with that, so we let her sleep on the dog bed in our bedroom. Turns out she'd rather sleep on the wingback chair in our bedroom so we put a blanket on it, and now that is her sleeping spot every night and she absolutely loves it! She enjoys relaxing in bed with us and our two other dogs on weekend mornings. We are working with her on her leash skills during walks, and she seems to be improving. During the day, she is happy to relax in her kennel while we are at work. Yoyo came into the rescue very skinny, but we are happy to say that she is putting on weight and looking better every day! Because she was and still is skinny, we need to be really careful on the food that is left laying around. I think because of her calm demeanor, she would do well with children. HOWEVER, she would definitely take food out of a small child's hand if given the opportunity to do so, so perhaps older children that can be cognizant of this would be the best fit for Yoyo. This sweet little lady requires insulin shots twice a day (I can honestly say that my husband and I were nervous at first to foster a dog that required insulin shots), BUT after a couple of weeks with Yoyo, we have gotten into a routine with her and the insulin shots to give her are "easy peasy". One day I had let all three dogs including Yoyo go outside to the bathroom and I called out to let them back in. Usually our two dogs and Yoyo come running back in right away but this time Yoyo didn't come in. I stepped out in the backyard and Yoyo was sitting in one of our patio chairs leaning on the back of it, and just watching the world go by. She was loving the backyard and beautiful summer weather. Please consider adopting this sweet little lady. Yoyo cannot wait to be in her forever home and to have a family that loves her and takes good care of her. She just might be the little lady that you never knew you absolutely needed in your life!!! 7/5/16: Yolanda, known to us as Yoyo, is such a sweet girl. Yoyo came to us from Minneapolis because she was significantly underweight and in the pound needing rescue immediately. We didn't hesitate; we knew she needed to come to Fargo and get healthy. When she got here, we discovered she has diabetes and her mismanaged diabetes was causing severe weight loss issues. She was exhausted and in pain, but when her tail wagged, we knew she still had hope for her future. After getting her diabetes, more, under control she has gained weight and feeling happy and wiggly. Yoyo's current foster home took her in as temporary foster but can no longer care for her. Since Yoyo loves her people so much, she likes to be the only dog in the house; more time for her and her person. Her foster has a dog of their own so they are rotating between dogs which can be stressful. We have a boarding facility, but her medical needs don't match up with what our building can provide for her. We need to find Yoyo something more permanent. Even though Yoyo is feeling better, she still requires on-going medical expenses so we are hoping to find someone to care for her as part of our foster-to-adopt program. This person would care for her just as if she was fully adopted and with intentions of providing Yolanda with a forever home; the rescue would cover the costs of any medical expenses, as we do with all of our foster home volunteers. Her care needs are (ideally) 3 feedings per day (special food provided), insulin injections twice per day (she does awesome and insulin provided during timeline) and recheck appointments as needed (currently every 7-10 days; vet visits covered). All she really wants is to be loved and have someone to snuggle with. She is potty trained and does great in both the kennel and the car. As long as she is with her people, she is completely content; she makes for a great office buddy too. She is incredible with children. Yolanda and a volunteer took a trip to the cities where she got the chance to stay with the volunteer's 4 year-old brother and did fantastic. She let him do his thing and then when he wanted to snuggle she was happy to roll over and let him giver her a belly rub. We can't say enough great things about Yoyo! If you're still reading this and you would like to give Yolanda a chance, or you would like to become a foster home volunteer to help dogs in need, like Yolanda, please fill out an application on our website. We thank you for your support. To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: www.4luvofdog.org

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Fargo, ND
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). {s3829code380/} If you would like to provide this dog a loving home, please fill out a pre-adoption application. Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. Statistics Name: Nyle Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix Age: 1 Year Size: Large 66 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 only Nyle is a handsome, young, energetic dude! Foster Home Feedback 10/11/16 Volunteer Feedback: I had the pleasure of watching Nyle last weekend when his foster was out of town. I had previously met Nyle before he had a foster and was at the shelter, so seeing him in a home was great! He really showed what a wonderful dog he is when he is able to be in a home environment. During the weekend I was watching Nyle, he got to interact with my two dogs. Nyle did so great with my two dogs even though one of them keep growling at him most of the time, which as soon as this happened, Nyle just backed off. Nyle did not react aggressively towards my dogs at all and just wanted to play with them. Nyle is such a well-mannered dog, he doesn’t jump up on the couch or bed. He kennels without any issues, and he is a good listener. Nyle’s favorite thing is to play catch. He drops the ball for you so you can throw it again...he really loves balls. In the house, Nyle just wants to be where you are; he will follow you around the house. He is also great at cuddling. Every time I sat down on the floor to pet Nyle, he came right up and sat on my lap and just loved being petted. Watching Nyle over the weekend went great and Nyle is truly a wonderful dog that needs someone that can understand his needs. He is such a fun dog and will be an awesome best friend to a lucky person. 9/25/16: Mr. Nyle is easily the most intelligent dog I have ever encountered, he is so task driven and pays such close attention to his "job" of playing with, squeaking and retrieving balls of all sorts. A few weeks back he was evaluated by an out of state canine center to see if he would be a good candidate for training as a "working" dog in search and rescue or things like sniffing drugs/explosives...and he did so well he was accepted! However, it soon became apparent that although Nyle loved working...he did not love and was very stressed being subjected to a constantly changing environment and it was decided he would do best in a home setting, and I was happy to drive 1,000 miles to bring him back! Nyle is such a good dog in our home...he is excellent with his little fluffy foster brothers. He sleeps quietly on our main floor in his kennel even though the rest of us sleep upstairs. My husband can even go downstairs, put the coffee pot on and then go back upstairs and get ready for work and Nyle just continues to quietly lay there. He knows that I will soon be down to release him from his kennel, go outside and then serve breakfast. In my home outside is playtime and Nyle will retrieve for as long as your arm holds out. He knows there are no balls allowed in the house and when he is ready to come in he will 'knock' on the door and drop whichever ball he has in his mouth. If he isn't ready to come inside when I do, he will curl up on a dog bed in the garage and keep an eye on the shelf where the arsenal of balls is kept on the off chance I will come back out and throw some more! He has mastered patience. Nyle is a quiet dog in the house, rarely barks and when you tell him the house rules, he doesn't forget. No counter surfing, getting into waste baskets, or begging...no chewing on anything other than his bones or Kong and then only in his kennel. He is also quiet when in the backyard. He doesn't bark at the neighbors or their dog thru the fence. We do a lot of walking and he is a dream on leash. Tonight a gray squirrel scampered on the sidewalk for about half a block right in front of us and although he was alert and watching it...he didn't bark or strain on the leash to go after him. A gentle reminder of "leave it" was all he needed. And when we go by homes with dogs who bark at us he doesn't react either. The leave it command is one he has mastered. You should also know he loves car rides and is a great traveling companion and when he was introduced to the lake he absolutely went nuts with joy splashing and swimming! For all of Nyle's wonderful attributes, he has one area he struggles with and that is: he is wary of strangers (especially men)...and he does not want strangers to lean over and pet him. So Nyle needs close supervision when meeting new people. All it takes is a few treats and some limited activity like taking a walk with him or throwing the ball and he is soon your friend and once you are his friend, you are his friend forever. Nyle is openly affectionate without being bothersome. I never tire of him coming and laying his beautiful head on my lap, looking at me with his soulful and trusting eyes. I feel so loved and I'm pretty sure he knows that love is returned. Nyle has been good with the older children he has been introduced to. But having said that, Nyle's dream home would be one without a lot of people coming and going, so a home without children might be best. He will also need a 5-6' board/plastic fence as he easily mastered climbing chain link and opening even heavy metal gates at the shelter...I told you he was smart! Nyle is a work in progress but with love, patience and positive reinforcement training I hope he will come to realize he has nothing to fear from new people. He has had a tumultuous first year of life...somehow he ended up with animal control in Minnesota...and then when his time was up there 4 Luv agreed to take him so he would not be euthanized. He resided in our overflow shelter for 4 months until finally getting into a foster home. He is a wonderful dog and I know he will make some person or family a wonderful companion. And until that time I will love him for you. 8/25/16: Finally Nyle has a foster home and I am so glad it is me! This poor guy has been in the rescue for many months waiting for a foster and when a spot opened up at my home I knew Nyle was the one. He has been a favorite of many building volunteers and with good reason. He has such a positive attitude and just makes you smile when doing shifts at the shelter. He has had many volunteers working with him on his manners and I am happy to report in the two days he has been here he has been P E R F E C T!! This boy is sooooo smart, has tremendous energy when outside playing fetch, but then is quiet in the house. He walks absolutely perfect with an easy walk harness and has no reaction to meeting other dogs, bikes, people or busy traffic. Just calmly stays on task. Nyle has never barked on a walk either. Tonight during our 10 pm walk, I was startled by a man coming around the corner of his house smoking...Nyle didn't react at all...just calmly continued walking. Squeaker balls are Nyle's favorite toys and I think he would play fetch forever. I have a big evergreen in the corner of our backyard and if the ball goes in amongst the branches and is hidden...he will search until he finds it. When Nyle was at the shelter, he would get pretty excited when it was his turn for playing or walking and sometimes would jump up. Here at my house, I am not seeing that at all. He follows me around the house, but when it comes time to go outside to play or take a walk, he is very easy to get leashed up. I am sure with each passing day, he will settle into a very easy routine. Today, he rode with me when delivering Meals on Wheels and he was totally content riding in the back seat. He never whined or was anxious when I left my vehicle to bring the meals inside to my elderly clients; he never barked at random people in apartment parking lots either. Just quietly and calmly went along for the ride. Right now as I am typing, he was quietly laying behind me...and when I turned to see where he was his head came up...his tail began wagging and he came over and laid his beautiful head on my lap and looked straight into my eyes. Then he calmly laid back down after a few moments. A perfect way to end his second day at our home. Stay tuned for more Nyle updates as we discover more about this handsome dude! 6/14/16 Feedback from Volunteer and Dog Trainer: Nyle is a very energetic, smart and sweet dog. He is eager to please and picks up on positive reinforcement training quickly. He does well with other dogs and enjoys being with people. I have taken Nyle on a few field trips (coffee shop, car rides, pet supply store, a friend’s house and Island Park). He has done well in the different setting we have visited. He has been fearful during exams at the Veterinary office but we have been working on training to help him feel more relaxed during his exams. We are also working on his leash manners and other skills. He is doing very well and he is a lot of fun to be around. Nyle is a young dog who would love an adoptive home that would be very active with him. I think he has potential to be a great running buddy. He loves to play fetch, go for walks and be with people. His adoptive home will get a 50% discount on a 6 week group Foundation manners /obedience class at Down Dog Studio or 2 free private lessons. Please consider giving Nyle a loving forever home. 6/1/16 Volunteer Feedback: Nyle is so much fun to have around! He is a goof and loves to make you laugh. He has quite a bit of energy, but will take it upon himself to tire himself out with some toys or a yard to run around in. He is a very happy go-lucky guy that always has a positive attitude. I can't wait to see him every week because he just brings a smile to my face. He also seems like he wants to please humans and will do what you ask of him. Whenever I come into the kennel room, he is sitting quietly at the door of his kennel because he knows I'll give him a treat (Or he's flopped half on his bed and half on the floor, taking a nap. It's hilarious). If you're looking for an energetic dog that's ready for a few adventures, Nyle would fit right in. He is such a goofy sweetheart! I promise you'll always have a good time with him around. 5/28/16 Volunteer Feedback: Oh Nyle, what can I say?! Nyle loves to play fetch! He is always up for anything when I have my shift at our building. He is also pretty smart, but does need some work on basic manners. He's learned how to open our gates, so we have to use clips on the gates to keep him inside his kennel. Nyle does have a lot of energy, so a very active home would be best for him. I would suggest no young kids as he is on the bigger size and with his energy he might accidentally knock them down. Nyle is dog friendly and just a friendly guy in general but you will have to hold onto his leash tight if he decides he wants to greet somebody. I actually got him to run along side while I biked the other weekend. It was a challenge at first because he does like to pull but we worked as a team and got a good run out of him. Nyle will need some basic obedience work for sure. He also will require a lot of exercise to keep his energy level manageable. However, he is goofy sweet guy who is just happy. I would also suggest he would do best in a home that has worked with dogs and can continue to work with him, so he can become the best mannered dog you would be proud of to own. He is one of my favorites at the building. How can you not like him when he is so happy all the time?! To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: www.4luvofdog.org

She is typical to the Weimaraner breed, always wants to see you and be by you. Even though she is 7 yrs old she is still very active. Luckily, after a long walk or run in the yard (with her people of course), she is ready to come in and snuggle. Truffles does kennel while we are at work but she doesn't completely enjoy it and barks to prove so. When outside, she should either be in a fenced yard or on a tie out and leashed during walks. She is house broke, has not had an accident at all. She gets along with our dogs and will let another dog know if she doesn't care for something by barking at them.

Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. Statistics Name: Svea Breed: Pomeranian Age: 13 Years Size: Small 12 lbs. Adoption Donation: $180 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Spayed Female, vaccinations current, microchip ** Svea qualifies for our Seniors for Seniors Program.

If you qualify and are interested in participating in this program, please fill out an application on line and type "SENIOR" after your name. Svea is going to need her very own forever home! Foster Home Feedback 10/9/16: Precious Svea has been with us almost a year. It's hard to believe it's been that long. She is such a different little dog since she came to us a year ago. Her personality has really come out and in the morning is almost like a little, wild pup. She gets so excited to go outside and to have her breakfast, it's so adorable! Svea really likes canine company but I think she would do fine with cats and with or without dogs. She needs a quiet, patient home. I feel a home with children may not be a good fit for her. Svea is an older dog and needs to live out the rest of her days in a loving, quiet and caring home. Svea is doing well not having any accidents in the house. However, when she is in a new situation, like the groomers, PetSmart, etc., she has accidents. In previous posts, I mentioned that she is on a life long heart medicine, however it is being reevaluated and she may not need to be on the medication any longer. Svea is timid and a bit standoffish when it comes to new people and her diet is special in that she does not eat hard food, soft food is necessary. She is incredibly loving and seeing her precious smile make it all worth it. 6/18/16: Precious Svea is still doing well. She is still looking for her forever home. Preferably a quiet home, she enjoys canine company but I don't think it's a necessity and I think she would do just fine with cats. Svea is very sweet. She likes her naps but she likes to run around the yard too. She is terribly cute and so soft and fuzzy. She always comes when I call her (and that includes my many nicknames for her). Svea is shy around new people and new places. She has her "safe" places and favorite places, hanging in her kennel or resting on my bed. She isn't a lap dog but she does sit by you. Svea is good in the car and stays in the passenger seat. Svea really is a wonderful, sweet dog and she truly deserves to have her own forever home. 5/16/16: Svea is my little sweetheart. She is so loving. It's amazing we've had her so long with how adorable she is. Svea just went to her groomer at Hot Dog Pet Salon and she looks so cute! She is doing well and explores around the yard. The sun seems to bother her eyes a bit so she's not out too long. She's so easygoing. Sometimes our dogs will walk right up to Svea and take her treat right out of her paws and she doesn't do a thing; she doesn't even bark. She truly deserves her forever home that will give her lots of love. 4/10/16: Svea is still doing really well. She really is such a sweet, gentle little thing. She is 12 but she doesn't seem that age when she gets her bouts of energy when she gets up in the morning or runs around outside. It is so cute seeing her run around and make her little snorting noises when she gets excited. We had quite a bit of company over for the Easter holiday. Svea did so well with all the new faces. She was a bit shy but came up to everyone and let people pet her. I plan to take her to the next Adoption Days at Pet Smart. She has made such great strides in her time here. I'm so proud of her. Svea is such a sweetheart and really deserves a loving home to call her own. 3/20/16: Svea has been in our home now for four months. Thinking back on her arrival, it's truly amazing how much she has progressed. She walked ever so slowly and carefully, as if she hadn't had walked much. Now she runs around the yard and when I call her she comes running. She has a very distinctive sound when running. In a house full of dogs, I can always tell it's her coming around the corner. Sounds sort of like a galloping horse. It's very cute. Svea was initially very finicky about her food and we've been able to slowly change her food to a much better option. She's also started to like chewing rawhide chews. Originally, she was not interested in treats at all. Svea spent her first month with us in diapers while we battled a urinary infection. She's been out of the diapers for sometime now and is doing very well, not having accidents in the house. However, she does have the occasional accident and it tends to be when she is very excited. Svea was so shy, it took a long time for her to seem happy, comfortable and safe. It seems like she feels all that and more now. It's been very rewarding to have her in our home to see how far she has come in these last 4 months and all the hurdles she has cleared. However, one hurdle she hasn't mastered yet is how to use the stairs and needs to be carried up and down them. She's only about 13 pounds so it's fine. Svea is still quite shy around new people. I think she would be just fine around cats and dogs. I think a quiet home is best suited for her. Svea is terribly sweet and absolutely adorable and deserves a patient, loving, safe place to call home. 2/28/16: Svea is doing well. She likes to explore in the yard now that it's been nicer out and the snow is melting. Svea thoroughly enjoys her canine company. We were dog sitting and had another dog staying with us for awhile and she did so well with him. Her personality is really coming out more and more as time goes by. She is really playful in the morning. She likes to run a bit when she's outside. We recently discovered that Svea has heart disease, so she will have to be on a medication for the rest of her life. We have had company over and she was pretty shy. She needs slow introductions to new people. Svea is such a little sweetheart and deserves a forever home with lots of love and patience. 2/8/16: In the last 3 months we've had Svea, she's made herself right at home. Her personality comes out more and more, which teeters between silly and bossy. Sometimes when she's not getting attention, she will bark her faint, little muffled bark. When she's feeling silly, she runs around outside chasing around our other dogs. She gets pretty excited for breakfast too! We've made good use of the nice weather lately, and she's been enjoying herself outside. She doesn't wander off too far, stays close and runs around our enclosed backyard. Svea is still not good with the stairs, though she has made it up the stairs on a couple occasions. She's getting better with males, still a little apprehensive but it's getting better. We finally found a diet that she likes and agrees with her stomach. Although, we've discovered that any kind of treat upsets her stomach so unfortunately, no treats for this little lady. A friend brought their giant Husky over and Svea just loved the dog and followed him all around. Most of the time she seems most content when she's hanging on the couch with us, she doesn't make a peep. She's just a sweet girl, very easy to love. Just a darling! 1/11/16: Svea has been in our home now for 2 months and we have thoroughly enjoyed having her. She is a gentle, sweet little thing. On the few occasions that she barks, it's a quiet, muffled bark. Svea is kenneled while we are at work. We are still working on potty training. Svea had many teeth extracted when she came into the rescue, so she eats wet dog food and is quite picky when it comes to her food. She gets along wonderfully with our other 2 male dogs. She really seems to like them and loves napping in dog beds with them. Svea is still apprehensive around men; she does fine with women but is shy around men. Due to her previous home in a puppy mill, she has no experience with stairs and needs to be carried up and down them. Svea has a really sweet personality and when she's happy, she looks like she's actually smiling. She really will make a great companion to someone in a quiet, gentle and patient home.

Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. Statistics Name: Bailee Breed: Beagle Age: 9 Years Size: Medium 32 lbs. Adoption Donation: $180 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check.

If you qualify and are interested in participating in this program, please fill out an application on line and type "SENIOR" after your name. Bailee does not act her age and she is ready to come have fun at your house! Foster Home Feedback * No cats ** Needs to go to a home with another dog to feel comfortable 9/22/16: While Bailee still displays her sweet and sensitive nature around everybody, including children, summer has afforded her the opportunity to prove she is, indeed, a hound. Based on what happened to a baby bunny who strayed into the yard, I would now suggest that she not be in a home with cats, ferrets, gerbils, etc. She also definitely needs a home with a companion dog and the opportunity to go outside frequently. Her water intake causes her to need to urinate often, and she can't always wait. She seems to drink more when stressed, and possibly as a side effect of the allergy pills she takes. Her seasonal allergies worsened at the same time as mine did, so she took steroid pills to bring them back under control. She will probably need to stay on her daily Zyrtec year-round. Bailee loves going for walks with her nose to the ground, getting attention, particularly from men, and snoring while snoozing. She will shred a stuffed toy when the mood or opportunity strikes, and she is a big fan of all things "treat". She doesn't get any people food at my house, so she doesn't beg. She does use her beautiful pleading brown eyes when she needs attention or a potty break. Her Beagle nirvana would include a man to adore, a doggie door, and a fenced-in yard to explore. Barring that, she would just love to find a happy forever home with people who appreciate her fine Beagle qualities. 7/6/16: I would like to say Bailee is rock-solid on her potty training, but it's a work in progress... Bailee's personality is coming out more. She is more willing to cuddle. you will love those soft, soft ears! 5/4/16: Bailee is a beautiful 32 pound blond with silky ears and doe eyes. She has a gentle and quiet nature, but will chime in with her canine companions if they strike up a chorus. She vocalizes like the beagle she is, displaying an extensive range, from deep-throated woofing to soprano whining. She gets along fine with the other members of the quintet now that she knows her role in the group. She was a bit assertive about food early on, but has figured out she will get her own meals and treats in due time. Unlike her previous home, we have no doggy door, so she has had to learn to wait to piddle until she is let outside. She is doing pretty well now, but may need close monitoring in a new environment. She loves to drink water, but two thorough vet exams have turned up no issues other than a strong thirst. It may be stress related, or maybe she's just keeping her vocal cords hydrated. Anyway, she would probably do best in a home with a yard, rather than in an apartment setting. Neighbors may not appreciate her song stylings, and her new owner may not want to be accompanying her outside as frequently as she would prefer. Bailee takes one Zyrtec-equivalent daily for her seasonal allergies, which cause skin itching and irritation. She appears healthy otherwise. She is a beagle, so she does shed her gorgeous fur. She rides well in the car and enjoys going for walks. She can pull strongly on a leash if she catches a whiff of something interesting. Her nose stays busy and she wants to "help" when things need to be retrieved from cabinets or the refrigerator. She's not especially demanding of attention and is content to hang out where it's comfortable. I have not kenneled her, but was told she is kennel trained. I don't know how she'd do with cats, but suspect she would be more interested in them than aggressive toward them. She has had a lot of changes in her life the past few months, and she may take a little extra time to adjust to another new situation, but she is a great dog. And those ears...they're like butter!

      Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). {s3829code380/} If you would like to provide this dog a loving home, please fill out a pre-adoption application. Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. Statistics Name: Boston Breed: Beagle Age: 2 Years Size: Medium 26 lbs. Adoption Donation: $180 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, vaccinations current, microchip, No Children, fenced yard required Boston is timid and needs time to adjust. He needs to go to a home with no kids. It may take multiple times meeting Boston for him to feel comfortable, so a home within the Fargo-Moorhead radius is preferred. Foster Home Feedback * No Children 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 9/20/16: Myrtle came a bit stand offish. She has adjusted nicely to to her new surroundings. She did have a few accidents right away but has settled in and does not have accidents at this time. She does well in a fenced yard and my other two dogs. During the day Myrtle is with 2 female mini Dachshunds in a large room. This took about a week or so due to the 3 of them adjusting to each other. During the night, she sleeps in her crate. Myrtle's appetite is good and she appears to have put on some needed weight since she arrived. She has not been around any children, but has been around my adult children. She has adjusted well to them. She does like attention and will snuggle in. She will nap with the other 2 dogs. I have not had her on a walk, however, she does spend time running around the yard with the other dogs. Myrtle seems to be able to adjust to most any situations given time. It has been fun seeing her adjust and fit in to her surroundings. To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: www.4luvofdog.org
