Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. Statistics Name: Merlin Breed: Manchester Terrier Age: 6 Years Size: Small 20 lbs. Adoption Donation: $180 - $20* = $160 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, vaccinations current, microchip * Adoption Donation to help Merlin find his forever home from Dorothy! Thank you! Merlin want to have a magical forever home! Foster Home Feedback 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.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). {s3829code380/} If you would like to provide this dog a loving home, please fill out a pre-adoption application. Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. FOSTER HOME NEEDED Statistics Name: Gretta Breed: Shepard Mix Age: 6.5 Years Size: Large 65 lbs. ~Large range: 60 - 100 lbs. Adoption Donation: $75 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Spayed female, vaccinations current, microchip, needs to be the only pet in her adoptive home. Gretta is a long legged beauty who loves to go for long walks and snuggle in front of the TV - Won't you give her a chance? Foster Home Feedback * No other dogs in home; No Cats ~Gretta is nervous around new people-- adopters should be aware of when their company is coming so that precautions can be made to crate Gretta or take steps to introduce her to strangers in a positive way (We'll show you how!). A quiet home without a lot of people coming/going would be best for Gretta. 4/30/17 Volunteer Feedback: I have Gretta over at our home about once a week. We have had many dogs in our lives, however, Gretta is truly the one with the most loveable personality we have ever witnessed. As you can see by her pictures, she has come a long way! I see a much happier, joyful girl! She met a contractor doing work at our home and greeted him warmly, wagging her tail in excitement. He instantly fell in love with Gretta. Gretta has the best manners of any dog I have ever seen. She listens upon command. I have only witnessed her react a couple times when she is away from the shelter. Once when a person was walking right up to our car in the Walmart parking lot. She immediately redirected herself while I patted her on the back, looking back at me with the utmost confidence. She plays fetch in our backyard that backs up to a golf course, watching many golfers and carts buzz by. Not a peep out of her! We recently had her on a walk and from a distance, a couple dogs were loose. She briefly looked at them as we diverted her in another direction and went along our merrier way. I believe she is doing everything she can now to find a home of her very own! I see her confidence continue to build each time she visits. Take the time to come meet her, you will immediately fall in love with this charming beauty! 4/8/17 Volunteer Feedback: What a wonderful girl Miss Gretta is! I know from seeing that she does not like other animals on her profile that it can be a little disheartening, especially after you see how beautiful she is. However, while this is an important thing to note, don't let it stop you from learning more about her first. I have a dog who is not always dog-friendly so I thought I would share things that work for us because some things can be concerning when looking into a dog with some small issues. If you're concerned about going to the vet with her? Advise your vet office you have a dog who is not dog-friendly. They will let you into a room right away to wait and help you leave when the office is empty. Concerned about going for a walk where you might run into other dogs? Don't walk during peak times. We often walk during the day, over dinner time, or later in the evening when there aren't so many people out and about. Gretta would also be a great candidate to learn how to walk on a treadmill. Concerned about what to do if you go out of town? There are affordable pet sitters who come into your home to care for your dog to avoid the stress of being in a kennel. We've had great luck with many in town. Concerned about her meeting new people? Kennel her if you are unsure of your company and her getting along. Or help her with slow and positive introductions. Gretta is very treat motivated and has come a long way with the help of some great volunteers. Gretta loves to play fetch, chew on bones on the couch, give very nice kisses, and get belly rubs.She is such a sweet and loving girl who I have so enjoyed getting to spend time with. If you're interested in Gretta or have more questions please fill out an application and consider giving her the loving home she so deserves. 2/21/17 Volunteer Feedback: How has this lady not found her forever home yet?! Just LOOK at her...she is adorable, well mannered, just a perfect one and only companion. Gretta enjoys her exercise but she is perfectly capable of being lazy as well. Gretta has been at 4 Luv's shelter for some time now. Although, us volunteers give her as much love as humanly possible (and I mean a lot of love since she has gained some weight)! Gretta DESERVES a home, where she can receive endless amounts of love because that's what she deserves. Her eyes captivate you. You can see her soul and how she desperately wants to find her person. Give this lady a chance, I promise you won't regret it. 1/26/17 Volunteer Feedback: I had Gretta over for a building break and she was very well mannered. She couldn't stop wagging her tail! She loves treats and playing ball. She will keep dropping the ball in your lap. She isn't a high energy dog. She even walked into a warm shower and loved being dried off with a towel! She is very easy to please. We did a slow intro and she was fine meeting my husband. If you have no dogs, she would love to cuddle with you! 1/4/17 Volunteer Feedback: This girl is the absolute sweetest dog! I am a building volunteer and have always enjoyed my shifts with Gretta and recently I have been taking her for kennel breaks and am falling even more in love with this girl! She rides great in the car, knows sit, shake, down and stay; she is so eager to please. Gretta isn't overly energetic, loves to play but also just likes to be by your side. This sweet girl needs someone to give her a chance. Taking the extra precautions will be well worth it as she will be a great companion. 11/13/16 Volunteer Feedback: Oh Gretta... she is a tall beauty who wants to be your one and only. She needs to be the only pet in the home (this is also the same outside of the home in public). She needs respectful distance from other dogs/cats and should not be interacting with them. Gretta is so smart and eager to work with you!! I had so much fun walking with her and just doing basic obedience commands. Gretta will require daily walks in a safe area where you won't run into a bunch of dogs that are not in control. She would probably love going for long hikes in nature (on leash only). Right now we are working on her fear reactions of moving vehicles but as I stated, she is smart and eager to work/please. With some good work with a trainer, Gretta would be so great to have around. 10/20/16 Volunteer Feedback: Gretta is a sweetheart. She seems a bit cautious when you first meet her, but she warms up to you very quickly. I am used to stubborn dogs in my household so having her constantly follow me around was a real treat. She LOVES her companions and will go wherever you want to go (Now that’s loyalty). Gretta deserves the best in life as do all of our shelter dogs that come and go. But there are always certain one’s you never forget.. she has definitely fallen under that category for me. If you are looking for a great dog who will relax when you want to relax, will play when you want to play, who will love you unconditionally after the first 20 seconds of her laying eyes on you.. she just might be the dog for you, just remember Gretta is very special, so she wants all of the attention for herself with no other dogs.

Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, Vaccinations current, Microchip, Older considerate children, No other pets in home Durand would love to go for a run with you! Give him your love! Foster Home Feedback * Older considerate children / No other pets in home 4/8/17 Volunteer Feedback: Durand is such a big goofy boy! He has the most beautiful coloring and a big blockhead. He has come a long way with the help of some pretty amazing volunteers. Even though Durand doesn't enjoy other dogs in a home that just means he wants to be your one and only love. Durand loves to go for long walks and play in the back kennel run at the building. From my time with him, he enjoys meeting new people and getting lots of squishes. He is easy to leash up and is well behaved in his kennel. Durand is kennel trained and always keeps it clean, and is happy to enjoy a frozen Kong while hanging in the office. Durand is very smart and treat motivated which has helped him develop his manners and continue on his training path. Please consider giving Durand a shot at a forever home. 4/1/17: Now that spring is here, Durand is looking for someone to enjoy the outdoors with! Durand is such a sweet boy! He is really starting to grow up from puppy to dog. He is kennel trained and has come a long way in walking on a leash and training in general. He has, however, decided that he needs to be the only pet in the home. Durand does well with supervised play dates, and in general, he gets along with other dogs. But in the home, he doesn't like to share the attention. Durand loves to cuddle and loves people and will make a great addition to the right home! 1/26/17: Durand is such a sweet and smart guy, and so cute! He reminds me every day, with his energy, that he is indeed a puppy. As a result, he needs daily mental and physical challenges with training and exercise to help release his energy in positive ways. Durand LOVES people and does great around new people. He especially loves his people; however, due to this, he can get competitive with other pets in the home. This has caused some resource guarding issues at meal and treat time. It may partly be the puppy in him, but it is something that we are currently working on. He will need further training and attention to try to reduce this behavior. Did I mention he is a ROCKSTAR when training? We go to a foster training class every week which focuses on treat-based/clicker training (positive reinforcement). He listens very well during training sessions and has caught on quickly; including stay, which is a hard one. He is fully kennel trained and does very well when it's time to go into the kennel; it's definitely his space where he can have time to himself. This "Durand' time usually includes a frozen peanut butter Kong and I turn the radio on for him as well; classical of course as he's very refined for his age! He really is a special guy and he's just looking for the right home to grow up in. 11/29/16: Freedom has made Durand a new puppy! He is such a quick learner and has done very well with treat-based training. We started using a gentle leader on walks and it's made all the difference; he's really becoming a rockstar and corrects easily if he starts to pull. Durand does want to meet the dogs that he sees, in a playful way, that's his biggest distraction... that and people; he LOVES people!! He still needs some reminders when walking but he's unrecognizable from when he first started. He will jump when first meeting someone so I instruct people to simply turn their backs to him until he stops. Also, the mouthing (play biting) has reduced significantly as he realized he gets more people time if he isn't mouthy. He's gone full days without doing it at all! Durand kennels well during the day and gets a break when I come home for lunch. He sleeps quietly in a dog bed at night but I know he'd rather be on the bed as he is a cuddler. He is such a lover and is going to be the perfect addition to a very lucky family! 11/8/16: Durand is such a sweet puppy who has had a hard time the last couple months. He spent 5 or 6 weeks in a regional pound with only one short walk a week. He is currently in a foster home with a yard to stretch his legs and is settling in, but as a puppy, he has a lot of energy. He's a very smart guy but he needs a patient home to help him learn puppy manners including leash walking and to stop mouthing (play biting). Durand would love a playmate to help him manage his energy and because of his size and the mouthing, he would do best in a home without children.

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

Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. FOSTER HOME NEEDED Statistics Name: Gideon Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix Age: 1.5 Year Size: Medium 45 lbs. ~Medium range: 26 - 60 lbs. Adoption Donation: $180 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, Vaccinations current, Microchip Gideon is super sweet and laid back. Foster Home Feedback 3/1/17: Gideon is such a sweetheart! We love having him as part of our family! He loves to cuddle and relax, but also has a playful side. He enjoys running around with our dog in the backyard. Gideon does well on a leash for walks and sleeps great in his kennel. He also does a great job in the car...doesn't make a peep and usually sleeps! Gideon is fully potty trained and stands by the back door to let us know that he needs to relieve himself. He does well with female dogs but seems to not favor other male dogs. He can be resource aggressive; in a multi-dog home, I recommend feeding them separately. As an only dog, I truly believe he would be the best dog ever! Gideon just wants all of the love. He can also be shy around Human males and tends to gravitate towards females. Total ladies man! However, with time Gideon warms up. He has been amazing with our young nieces and nephews. Gideon listens to commands well and would be easily trained. He would be a great addition to a loving and special family. We will be a little sad to see him go, but very happy to find Gideon his forever family! 1/15/17 Volunteer Feedback: Oh what a handsome man! Gideon was a bit shy when I first meet him at my volunteer shift but by the end of my shift, we were best friends. He is a very well-mannered dog when it comes to walking and every once awhile he would turn around and jump on me for some cuddle time. He would benefit from some positive obedience training just to help keep his mind working and most important, work on socialization skills that he will need to become a more confident balanced dog.

Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. Statistics Name: Phinneas Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix Age: 3 Years Size: Medium 52 lbs. ~Medium range: 26-60 lbs Adoption Donation: $180 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, Vaccinations current, Microchip, Older considerate children only Phinneas would love to have a forever home. Foster Home Feedback * Older considerate children only 6/1/17: Phin has been in our home about 2 weeks now and is a great house guest. Phin’s favorite place is the bed. He would sleep there all day if he could. We have 3 other dogs in the home that are fairly quiet so Phin doesn’t do much playing with them but he is content to just lay around and do nothing. Phin kennels while we are gone and has no issues. Phin is also completely potty-trained as well. Phin has 2 speeds – calm as a cucumber and then crazy as a cat on occasion. Phin is calm about 90% of the time, but if you get him wound up by running with him and trying to get him to play, he is still a bit mouthy. We are working on trading with him for a toy each time he does this behavior and that is going well. He means no harm and is unsure how to express his excitement in another way. If I had to guess, I would assume Phin was not socialized when he was young and never taught that it is not ok to be mouthy. He is a fast learner, so I am certain he will succeed and overcoming this behavior. Phin is dog-friendly and would enjoy a dog to chase around in the backyard but would also do just fine as an only dog. We do currently have one child in the home as well. Phin does great with him and we have had no issues. Our home is pretty calm without a lot of commotion which suits Phin well. Phin’s allergies are completely under control and I am working on transitioning him off of the prescription food. He loves to eat and enjoys every meal he gets! Phin would love to finally find his forever home, where he can lay his head down permanently!! 1/28/17 Volunteer Feedback: Phin has been at our building for some time now but always has a wiggle butt and some piggy noises for me when it his turn for one on one time. Phin would do best in a home that is low key and not so busy with people coming and going. He loves to be with his people. He always seems up for a walk or snuggles on the couch but as long as it is with you, he will be content. He can get mouthy at times which all the wonderful volunteers have been working on with him. He has only tried to mouth once with me, but he redirected perfectly with his special treats. He has not tried again, but I do not play in his face or tug of war with him. He does have some allergy issues which he has to be on special food and treats, but his love for you in return will be so worth it. I like seeing Phin when I volunteer at the building, BUT I would love it even more, to see him in a foster home or forever home. 1/27/17 Volunteer Feedback: I always look forward to seeing Phin on my shifts at the shelter; he has quickly become one of my favorites. He has such a great personality and fun to be around. He is very smart and eager to please. It's hard to see him be stressed at the shelter, so I took him home for a couple hours and he was such a good house guest! He played a little bit but was much more interested in snuggling and looking out the window. This guy loves his people and truly deserves a family of his own. Please consider fostering or adopting this guy! 11/7/16: Phin can't believe this nice fall weather we have been having lately. He loves to romp around the yard and check to see if his neighborhood friends are outside frolicking about. Phin has enjoyed a couple of bonfires and did great with our company. He keeps hearing us talk about what is on the menu for Thanksgiving day and is becoming anxious to see what's in store for him. He wants everyone to know that while he loves going for his daily walks to burn off energy, his all time FAVORITE thing to do is cuddle right up next to you! He is looking forward to the winter months as he knows everyone will be begging him to snuggle on their laps to keep them warm! 9/14/16: We have been attending Down Dog Studio to work on Phin's obedience training using the positive reinforcement method. He has done really well in such a short amount of time. He understands sit, down, and touch. We are working on stay, release, etc. and loose leash walking. He is very treat motivated! I highly recommend continuing his training efforts after adoption. He loves proving himself to you and it is great for his confidence and the expectations of the family. Phin does well on his walks. We use the Freedom Harness to avoid pulling as much as possible, and it's also easier on his skin as it has a velvety touch. So far he doesn't mind dogs across the street or behind a fence, however, we use caution as he is reactive with our neighbor's 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, whoever 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 whoever 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 whine 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!

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). {s3829code380/} If you would like to provide this dog a loving home, please fill out a pre-adoption application. Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. Statistics Name: Boston Breed: Beagle Age: 3 Years Size: Medium 26 lbs. ~Medium range: 26 - 60 lbs Adoption Donation: $180 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, vaccinations current, microchip, No Children, Fenced yard required Boston is timid and needs time to adjust. He needs to go to a home with no kids. It may take multiple times meeting with Boston for him to feel comfortable, so a home within the Fargo-Moorhead radius is preferred. Foster Home Feedback * No Children 1/26/17: Boston is a wonderful dog and a gorgeous beagle. He is very loyal in his home to his people. He kennels well when we leave the house – I grab a treat and he heads for the kennel. He loves to run and play ball outside. A fenced yard is a must for Boston as he gets nervous when strangers approach while he is on a leash and will lunge. He is definitely a Beagle and does make it known with his bark. Boston also gets nervous when strangers or people he doesn’t see often come into the house so it is best for all to just plan on kenneling him when someone he hasn’t learned to trust comes in the house. Boston’s issues with strangers have improved over time but he has a long way to go with his stranger danger. If you want a loyal dog and have a quiet house with a fenced yard, Boston might be the dog for you! 9/7/16: Boston is still here waiting for his permanent home. He is an awesome guy to have around. He loves to play ball, kennels well and is loving to his people. He does need a fenced yard as he is very scared of strangers and will lunge at them, so I am very careful when people come to the house. Boston is just the sweetest little guy to the people in the household that he considers to be friends. He will get used to a small amount of people and will be very loyal to his companion so a single person or a couple with not a lot of company and no children around would be ideal for him. 6/29/16: Boston is still here! Boston is the perfect dog for someone that has a quiet household and a fenced yard. He is so lovable. Although he loves to play with other dogs, he might be best as an “only dog” as long as he has a person to call his own. We enjoy having Boston. He knows in the morning when I am ready to leave, I head for the treats and he heads for his kennel. Boston is potty trained and his favorite pass time is playing ball. Boston still has issues with strangers, so I am very cautious when people come to the house. I do have a dog of my own that Boston plays with, but Boston is easily triggered with a growl and will become aggressive, so they are not left unsupervised alone. As Boston’s “person” I can say that Boston has never turned on me as he is very loyal to me, so once you take over my roll, he will be your best friend. If you have any questions about Boston, please feel free to ask. If you do have the perfect home for this special dog, we can make sure you get to know him and can become friends before taking him home. 3/6/16: Boston has been with me for 3 months now. He is a very loving and loyal dog to “his person”. Boston does have a fear of strangers and needs to be kenneled or leashed to someone he trusts, when people come to the house. His safe place is his kennel. He kennels very well when I leave him for the day. He knows when I reach for a handful of treats and toys, it's time and he races me to the kennel. He has a dog companion at my house but supervision is required when they are together as Boston can get too amped up, become very rough and dominate quickly. He has been going to training where he is getting exposed to strangers and learning simple commands. He is very motivated with treats so stock up! If you are interested in Boston, please make sure you are willing and have the time required to work with him. I feel Boston will do best in a 1 or 2 adult person household without children. 2/24/16 Feedback From Kish Hilmert (dog trainer with Down Dog Studio): Boston is a sweet dog but because he was not exposed to many new people or situations when he was a puppy he is fearful of new people and new environments. His ideal home would be one with a quiet environment with a limited number of new people visiting and a playful doggie friend. He enjoys rambunctious play with other dogs so a canine companion would be great. Boston 's foster has done a great job working with him to associate new people with positive things. He has come along way with general training and working on his stranger danger but he still has progress to make. His new home would need to continue working with Boston on training and getting him comfortable with new people. 12/1/15: Boston is very timid and will take some time adjusting to his new people. He does get better every day and will now follow us around wherever we go and will get on the couch and sit next to us. He gets very scared and freezes when we pick him up, but that too has gotten better since the first day he was with us. Having other dogs has helped him; he follows them outside and does what they do. He would benefit from having a dog buddy to show him the ropes. His new home needs to have a fenced in yard to keep him safe since he is so timid and scared to come to people. He loves running outside in the yard and throws himself around like he's having the time of his life. He likes to play with toys and has recently started playing with our dogs. Boston is as cute as they come, but he does need plenty of patience and time to adjust to his new home. To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: www.4luvofdog.org

Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, vaccinations current, microchip * Adoption Donation to help Merlin find his forever home from Dorothy! Thank you! Merlin want to have a magical forever home! Foster Home Feedback 1/3/17: Merlin is still searching for a home he can call his own. Merlin still gets around like a champ with the help of Dasaquin and Lubri-Syn once a day. This will have to be continued indefinitely. Merlin also needs to avoid a lot of activity like a lot of stairs or high furniture. We have doggy steps that he uses to get up and down off our couch/bed, and he is happy to use those. As long as Merlin has a lap to snuggle on, he's a very happy, content little guy. Merlin's ideal home would be one without a lot of stairs and a very laid back home without a lot of visitors. He will approach my husband and let him know he wants to snuggle with him, but it took a lot of time and patience to get there. Even with this colder weather, Merlin still goes outside to do his business but is happy to get back into the warm house and find a spot with my other dogs in front of a vent to warm up. If you're looking for a snuggle buddy to keep you warm on these cold nights, let Merlin work his magic on you! 4/27/16: Merlin is still patiently waiting and is hoping he'll be spending summer with a family he can call his own. While warmer weather usually means a lot more activity, Merlin is still happy to just lounge around the house. Now that we're getting some warmer days, Merlin likes to show off how great he is at multitasking by "supervising" me while I do lawn work AND soaking up the sun at the same time. While Merlin does enjoy a walk, he's happy that I'm not too much of a runner, as he's happy to go at a nice, leisurely pace. His favorite place to be is still curled up next to me, but when I have things to do, he'll crawl into his crate with his blanket and is very content in there. Merlin may take a little more time and patience, but once he feels secure and knows you're all right, he'll give you his heart and be your buddy for life. 12/16/15: Merlin has his paws crossed that he'll get a wonderful forever home for Christmas. Merlin has done excellent with his potty training and will now tell us, sometimes quite adamantly, when he needs to go out (even with this colder weather). However, I would recommend an adopter crate or keep a close eye on Merlin when bringing him into their home. I still do slow introductions to people with Merlin but have noticed that Merlin seems to do better with women than he does with men. While he is able to be around men, it does take time for him to learn that he can trust them and so I now let men know not to overwhelm Merlin, give him some time and patience, and to let him come to them. I am a huge supporter of positive reinforcement, and this would definitely need to be the case with Merlin. Merlin is still getting around like a champ, but he is on a daily joint supplement and anti-inflammatory. We just stick them in with his breakfast, and he chows them down. Merlin is definitely my snuggle buddy and takes his job of keeping my legs and feet warm very seriously. If you have the patience to let Merlin come out of his shell, you will see an extremely loyal and delightful little guy. 8/27/15: Merlin is a wonderful, happy little fellow who has fit right into our home. He is doing very well with his potty training and will remind us that he needs to go out. He's a talkative little guy, so I would recommend no apartments for Merlin. He does very well with our dogs - big and small. We only have two who are interested in playing with him, and he's always up for a good game of chase. Merlin does have subluxating patellas (common in small dogs), so we are careful to make sure he doesn't get too crazy in his play. When our own dogs play, he either wants to join in the play or tell them to settle down. Merlin would do well in a calmer home as he likes to run a tight ship. While he does enjoy meeting new people, he also wants to make sure they understand no shenanigans. Merlin loves to crawl up into my lap and rest his head on my shoulder. At night, he crawls under the covers and keeps my legs warm. Merlin does well in a crate but definitely enjoys being around his people.

Foster Home Feedback * NO Cats 5/8/17: Jinxy's update is well overdue. She has settled into our family so wonderfully. Jinxy enjoys being with us, whether it's playing and goofing around or relaxing in the sun. She has done well with crate training the past couple of months and has very, very few accidents in her crate and none in the house. She comes to work with me during the day and this has seemed to help tremendously so I can make sure to get her out to potty. Jinxy enjoys training and flourishes with positive training methods. She has done great with our dogs too and is learning to be calm when meeting other dogs. Jinxy is also great with kids. She is a fantastic dog! 2/23/17: Jinxy has certainly settled into our home and hearts. She is a very affectionate girl who wants to please (and gets easily distracted). We have been working on "dog to dog" behaviors and she is learning to throttle back some when playing with our dogs. Since she gets distracted easily, she can sometimes forget to do both 1 and 2 potty when she is outside. If we monitor her though and remind her by going out with her, taking away distractions, and telling her to go potty, then she does great and can be allowed free roam of the house (when we are home). Jinxy is working on crate training and has a little anxiety. She knows sit and stay, lay down, and more soon! She has also been around kids, ages 4 and 6, and been great. She seems to have a prey drive with cats so not recommended to be around cats. She has tolerated being switched to Zignatures dog food. Her skin is still very sensitive, for example, to the cold, irritates easier from scratches, etc. Jinxy LOVES playing with the jolly ball. She is quick, driven, and has a great vertical jump; she is a wonderful candidate for agility. She sometimes skips an entire set of seven stairs (!) at our house when she is running her "hot laps"...She is such a hoot. 12/18/16: Jinxy has been with us for a couple of days. She seems to be kennel trained and potty trained, so far. She requires slow intros to dogs, as she can sometimes be intense on leash- we are working on it though and have very high hopes she can learn to control herself. Jinxy loves to play and is a great cuddler when she is tired. She is only about 40lbs too, so great size to share the couch with! Currently, Jinxy is on special dog food (ZD) for her sensitive stomach and skin. To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: www.4luvofdog.org

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

Foster Home Feedback * NO Children 3/16/17: June came to the rescue from a regional pound after she was picked up with a significant eye injury. As to be expected, her eye was very painful and she did not want to be handled, but we could tell there was a little sweetheart in there somewhere. There were a few road bumps in her recovery, but she is good as new now, and showing more and more of her sweet side every day! After about a week she started approaching for attention. A few days later, she was crawling in my lap when I sat on the floor. Now we are three weeks in and she loves to snuggle belly up on the couch! June is still slow to warm up to strangers, but if they ignore her she won't bother them. She will find her dog bed and be content to hang out there while company is over. June does need a home with no kids. There are also 2 resident dogs and a cat in the home and June is able to coexist with them. She likes to be the boss and prefers if they don't get right up in her face, especially the big dog. She wants them to think she's tough, and then when you aren't looking, she will go lay down next to them. There hasn't been a single potty accident in the house and she causes no trouble being left loose in the house during the work day. There is a lot of personality packed into this little dog and it is so much fun to see more of it coming out every day!
