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.

More About Pomeranian 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: Gretta Breed: Shepard Mix Age: 6.5 Years Size: Large 65 lbs. ~Large range: 60 - 100 lbs. Adoption Donation: $75 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Spayed female, vaccinations current, microchip, needs to be the only pet in her adoptive home, Not apartment friendly, Needs to be in a fenced in yard, No Children 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 Pets in home; Not Apartment Friendly; No Children; Needs a Fenced in Yard ~Gretta is nervous around new people-- adopters should be aware of when their company is coming so that precautions can be made to crate Gretta or take steps to introduce her to strangers in a positive way (We'll show you how!). A quiet home without a lot of people coming/going would be best for Gretta. 10/2/17 Volunteer Feedback: MOST IMPROVED Award goes out to Miss Gretta! She has improved so much since I first met her in January. She walked nicely in the park, catching herself immediately upon reacting to a passerby right alongside us. When bringing her back to the shelter, she fell into my arms, eyes filling up with tears. Gretta's such a smart, affectionate gal! She so deserves a home to call her very own! 8/22/17 Volunteer Feedback: Hey there! Gretta here! I have been going a little stir crazy at the shelter. It seems like I have been here for soooo long. There are many nice volunteers that come to pal around with me, feed and pet me; some even come to take me on outings. I get frightened easily so we generally try to stay away from situations where I could get spooked. Last weekend I got to watch bicycles from a distance and eat yummy treats with whispers of being such a good girl. I am learning that not everything is scary! It was really fun laying in the sunshine with grass tickling my belly. Riding in the car was a hoot as well and I hate to brag but I am so well behaved in the car, you will probably let me drive, really! The volunteer mentioned how my behavior in the car reminded him of how good I am in a kennel. I think the volunteers get really sad when they have to leave me at the shelter. I know many of them have grown to love me and I really appreciate them, but I NEED at least one human to myself! I have more love than I am able to give! Help me out here; help me get a forever home! 7/10/17 Volunteer Feedback: Gretta has come so, so, so far. She melts my heart and is my favorite part about going to my shifts as a building volunteer. I am so incredibly impressed with her. She has sadly lived at the building for so long, and even still, has done SO well with her training. On our walk yesterday, Gretta did not even flinch at the cars passing by, she just kept on walking and sniffing her grass. The only time she was fearful was when a massive, loud semi-truck came out of nowhere, and I don't blame her, it scared me too! She corrected herself immediately after this happened and went back to walking as if nothing occurred. She is so playful and loving; I have sooooo much fun working with her. Gretta is so well-behaved and absolutely loves listening to you and working to make you proud. Her favorite thing to do when we're in the backyard together is "hide her favorite ball" (behind the same rocks in the corner, every time) coming to find me, show me that her ball is gone, then un-hide it like a magic trick - she gets so happy at my "WOW!" reaction. Gretta is so funny and smart. Please give this sweet girl a chance. She has been living at the shelter for far too long and does even better in a home. Gretta has endless amounts of love to give, as all volunteers have noticed. We love her so much and hope you will too! 6/23/17 Volunteer Feedback: Gretta did awesome visiting today! She was once again, well mannered. She LOVES to play ball in the yard and enjoy the sunshine. This pretty lady needs to be in a loving home so badly! Gretta is progressing so much! When leaving our home back to the shelter, we encountered a loose dog next door. Gretta just looked and never even bothered with the dog. #homeforGrettaplease 4/30/17 Volunteer Feedback: I have Gretta over at our home about once a week. We have had many dogs in our lives, however, Gretta is truly the one with the most lovable 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 ones 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.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 75. {s3829code380/} If you would like to provide this dog a loving home, please fill out a pre-adoption application. Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. FOSTER HOME NEEDED Statistics Name: Virginia Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix Age: 3.5 Years Size: Large 61 Lbs. ~Large range: 61-100 lbs. Adoption Donation: $75 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Virgina needs a home with no other pets Other: Spayed Female, Vaccinations current, Microchip, No other animals of any kind, Needs fenced-in yard, No children Virginia has skin and environmental allergies and needs to eat prescription food. She also takes a daily medication to manage her allergies. Virginia is looking for a home and person to be all hers! Foster Home Feedback * Needs fenced-in yard, No children, NO other animals (Virginia once fought a porcupine and lost-- she holds a grudge). Virginia has skin and environmental allergies and needs to eat prescription food. She also takes medication to manage her allergies. 9/10/17 Volunteer Feedback: Virginia is a delightfully beautiful girl looking for the perfect home. I have taken this sweetheart on a few adventures and I fall more in love with her each time. First, we went to the vet together to have an allergy shot. Virginia was well behaved while we waited for the technician to ask some questions. And in the few minutes it took for the vet to come in, she laid down and looked bored. Then we had an outing away from the shelter at my house. Virginia just really loves to be with her people. She followed my husband and I around and was always close by. She enjoyed exploring the backyard, found a few toys that were fun to play with, giving sweet kisses, and snoozing on a dog bed. Virginia is so quiet and laid back. She was by far the easiest house guest I've ever had. At the shelter, Virginia always keeps her kennel clean, walks very well on a leash with her harness. She knows a few basic commands. Although Virginia doesn't want the company of other animals as much as she does her humans, she is still a wonderful dog to consider adopting. Virginia just wants to be your one and only love. A lot of people think having a dog who is not dog-friendly is difficult. But I have two dogs of my own that only enjoy each other's company and it isn't difficult at all. Consider adopting Virginia and giving her the loving home she so deserves. 7/31/17: Virginia is a SUCH a sweetheart! She's been in our home for about 3 months and has proved to be an excellent companion. Virginia loves people and wants to be by your side for whatever you're doing... gardening, watching TV, making dinner, she just wants your company! She does very well walking on a leash and loves to get exercise every day. As long as you keep an eye out for approaching animals, she sticks right by your side. We love that Virginia knows so many commands (i.e. sit, stay, come, leave it) and is eager to learn even more. She would do best in a home that gives her free reign of the house, can make frequent check-ins, and has no other animals. We hope you'll consider Virginia as your next pet! 4/8/17 Volunteer Feedback: Meet Virgina! This girl has my heart. I have so enjoyed her sweet and silly personality. Another volunteer and I gave her a medicated bath to help with her skin issues. While some dogs are very difficult to bathe, Virgina was an absolute dream and her skin is on the mend. It was fun to watch her wiggle and run around a bit after her bath because she is generally so quiet. She is so easy to walk, isn't too playful and is quite laid back and happy to hang with you on the couch. Virgina always keeps her kennel clean, rides very nicely in a car and is great with kids. She always greets you with a wagging tail and isn't jumpy like many of the shelter dogs so she is a volunteer favorite to leash up. Please consider giving Virgina the wonderful home she so deserves. 3/27/17 Volunteer Feedback: Sweet Virginia was surrendered to the rescue needing some veterinary care for her skin and for the past few weeks I've been giving her special "spa" treatments with medicated shampoo. She is looking so much better and is now ready to be adopted! I can't say enough about what a very well behaved girl she is. If I already didn't have two fosters, I'd love to add her to my pack! Virginia is very docile and quiet and very stoic. She accepts whatever you ask of her or want to do to her. The last time she was over, I ended up keeping her for a good portion of the day as I just couldn't bear to bring her back to the shelter (where she patiently waits for a foster or forever home). To some, she may not be the prettiest dog, but she is certainly distinctive with one brown and one blue eye and to me, her beautiful nature does indeed make her a beautiful dog. Virginia walks nicely on leash, rides quietly and practically motionless in a vehicle and no reactions or barking while she is with me at home or at the shelter when I am there doing a shift. Please consider adding this wonderful girl to your family! To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: www.4luvofdog.org

She has met a lot of kids and the kids like her as much as she likes the kids! Yoyo does fantastic with being kenneled during the day, she knows the routine well. She still sleeps in her chair or in a dog bed at night, although she will sometimes sleep with her humans if they let her. Yolanda has visited and stayed with her dog-friend Parker and Parker has a cat at her house. Yoyo was interested in the cat at first, but once the novelty of a new 'thing' wore off, she and the cat coexisted nicely together (and Yoyo enjoyed hanging out with her bestie Parker too!) Yolanda is a special girl because of her positive attitude despite her ailments. She has gotten poked and prodded a lot at the veterinarian for treatment of her diabetes but she will always give you a smile and ask for a belly rub once it's over. She has some vision impairment due to cataracts (stemming from her diabetes) but Yolanda does not let it slow her down! Yoyo has the most incredible nose!! She can seriously sniff out anything-- it is so impressive! Yolanda lives her life to the fullest extent everyday and its something to be admired by any human! She can sometimes be a bit stubborn and occasionally has a "little attitude" but it is truly just endearing and will make you love and appreciate her even more. Yolanda has been waiting so patiently for her forever home, and she just wants to start making her new adopters smile-- sooner the better. 2/4/17: It's finally February!! Yolanda was really hoping that someone would find some room in their hearts and home for her. She is happy to be beyond the holidays, although she had a blast, the holidays are exhausting! Yolanda got to go and stay at her foster-grandparents home over the holidays with her foster family. She did AMAZING there! One night, there was a huge get-together with tons of friends and family, and Yoyo totally stole the show! Everyone loved her and she enjoyed getting petted and receiving all of the attention. When she was tired, she went and found her dog bed and crashed in the corner even with all of the noise and commotion still going on around her. Yoyo is a little bummed that we have had such cold days, because no one really wants to go for a walk in our house, including her. She is perfectly content to chew on a bone or rope toy on these cold days, though. We have had a few other foster dogs in our home, and Yolanda has done really well with most of them. She does great with a dog that can respect her loud play-growls and not be scared or intimidated by them. Sometimes it just takes a little time for other dogs to figure out Yolanda's quirks that make her so special! Yolanda's diabetes is getting more stabilized, so we are so happy and proud of her! She has recently weighed in around 53 pounds, which is a huge success compared to where she started when 4 Luv of Dog took her into the rescue. She does great on her feeding schedule and insulin. She is such a smart girl. We feed all of the dogs including Yolanda and then after a few minutes put all of the other dogs outside. Yoyo stays inside near her dish because she knows it is time for her "second special meal" that she gets to eat while we give her a quick insulin shot. Did I mention her foster parents have come up with a middle name for her? They call her "Yolanda Asconda". With a first and middle name like that, how can you resist adopting this fine young lady! Yo thinks the song phrase "Put a little love in your heart" should be changed to "Put a little Yo in your home!" 12/19/16: Yolanda had a wonderful and busy weekend! On Friday night, Yolanda (Yoyo) got to attend Doggie Date Night hosted by Unglued at the Prairie Den. She did wonderfully meeting dogs of all sizes and types. Yoyo had so much fun at the event! She even posed for a picture with her foster mom in front of a fun holiday backdrop! Despite losing some of her vision, she would not let it get in her way of having a fun time! Yoyo had a sleepover at a friend's house and got to spend all day Saturday and Sunday with some new doggie friends! Yay! Yoyo did great meeting the new dogs and was happy to play with them. She even went to a house with some cats and did very well with them. While she was at the new house, Yoyo slept in her kennel at night and did well with it. Yoyo's babysitter said it was "easy-peasy" to give her the insulin injections, that it wasn't an issue whatsoever! At the end of her busy weekend, she just wanted to relax and snooze on her dog bed with a toy. 12/09/16: Yolanda really hopes that her diabetes is not scaring any potential adopters away! She is such a sweet girl and great dog that her foster parents think the only reason she hasn't found a home must be because of her diabetes. BUT, her foster parents want you to know that having a dog with diabetes is no big deal AT ALL! Unlike humans, she does not need to get her blood sugar checked daily. All she needs is to be fed at regular times, 12 hours apart, with a quick insulin shot ten minutes after the feeding. Yolanda usually has no idea that she is even getting her insulin injection. She is currently going to the vet once a month until her glucose levels get squared away. Once her levels are stabilized, there will be a lot less maintenance involved for her health. Yolanda really enjoys car rides, and will typically just hang out on the backseat and enjoy the ride. She likes hanging out and watching football on Saturdays and Sundays and doesn't get concerned when her foster parents are yelling at the television. All of the people that meet Yolanda enjoy her goofy smile, calm demeanor, and cute floppy ear! Did we mention that she loves to meet new people?! We must warn you though, if you meet her you will fall in love with her!! 11/16/16: It has been a long journey for Yolanda, but she is finally getting her medical situation sorted out!! Unfortunately, due to her diagnosis of diabetes, her eyesight has deteriorated. She gets around our house perfectly fine since she knows it, but she can occasionally get disoriented. However, once she is in an environment and knows the layout, Yolanda does incredibly well for herself. Every once in a while she just needs a little more guidance and patience to help her get around. Sometimes this is as simple as putting a leash on her and guiding her around or even using her collar to help direct her. I think Yolanda is happy to have two other dogs in her foster home; they help her out and guide her around in new environments. Despite some vision loss, Yolanda will show you that it does not slow her down one bit! She loves to go on walks and be outdoors. Yolanda can be a little diva in the respect that she LOVES to be pet! She almost begs you to pet her with those big brown eyes of hers. Then once you are petting her and she is comfortable, she rolls on her back so you can give her a nice belly rub! She enjoys a great belly rub. During the day, Yolanda sleeps and relaxes in her kennel. She gets a small snack over the lunch hour to help stabilize her blood sugar. She likes her walk when her foster parents get home from work in the evening. Then, it's supper, followed by a quick insulin shot, and whatever her foster parents want to do! Yolanda is happy to follow her foster parents around the house while they are cleaning or doing laundry, but she also likes to curl up on the couch next to you and relax. At night, Yolanda sleeps on an old wing-back chair in her foster parent's bedroom. She knows it is "her chair" too. Usually, Yolanda has cuddle time with her foster parents on their bed and then when they tell her to go to her chair, she jumps down and sleeps on her chair the rest of the night! She curls up on her chair and sometimes you will need to ask her to get out of it to go outside and get breakfast in the morning. Since gaining weight and getting her medical situation figured out, she has shown a positive interest in other dogs. Yolanda enjoys playing with other dogs and having dog-buddies in the house. She has done well in meeting new dogs and is generally not reactive. Since Yolanda is about 7 years old, she has a very calm disposition and would be good in a home with older, respectful children. Most people that meet Yolanda say only the nicest things--most commonly that she is so sweet and cute! Would Yolanda make a wonderful addition to your home?!? She thinks so! 9/15/16: Hi there! My name is Yoyo and I would really love to settle into a home that will be my furever home! Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I love, love, love humans!!! They make me so happy and I love to be around them. A couple of weekends ago, my foster parents went on vacation, so I got to vacation at a new house for the weekend! The vacation house had kids and I LOVED following them around and keeping an eye on them! They were so fun to hang out with. Sometimes when I meet people, I just get so excited that I roll over on my back and the humans are smart enough to rub my belly! I LOVE BELLY RUBS!!! I must say that I train humans pretty well! During the day when my foster parents are at work, I sleep in my kennel. I'm not super thrilled about it, but my other doggie brothers are next to me in their kennels, so they keep me company. My foster humans tell me that I have a medical condition called, Diabeeezuz or something, but I don't even know what that means!! I'm just a normal girl! It is a little strange though, after my morning meal and evening meal, my humans give me another small handful of food in my dish. Then I feel a slight itch between my shoulder blades, but I honestly don't even notice because I'm so happy I'm eating. I think I heard they might be giving me an insulin shot or something, but I could care less because I love eating my food! Did I mention that I LOVE CAR RIDES!!! All of the humans that are lucky enough to hang out with me say how well I ride in the car. OH YIPPEE!! I think I just heard my foster human grab my leash! I wonder if we're going for a WALK!!! Gotta run! Bye now! 8/26/16: Yolanda, known to us as "Yoyo" has been in our home for a couple of weeks now and we have truly enjoyed having her around. Yoyo came into the rescue very skinny, but we are happy to say that she is putting on weight and looking better every day! Because she was and still is skinny, we need to be really careful on the food that is left laying around. I think because of her calm demeanor, she would do well with children. HOWEVER, she would definitely take food out of a small child's hand if given the opportunity to do so, so perhaps older children that can be cognizant of this would be the best fit for Yoyo. This sweet little lady requires insulin shots twice a day (I can honestly say that my husband and I were nervous at first to foster a dog that required insulin shots), BUT after a couple of weeks with Yoyo, we have gotten into a routine with her and the insulin shots to give her are "easy peasy". One day I had let all three dogs including Yoyo go outside to the bathroom and I called out to let them back in. Usually, our two dogs and Yoyo come running back in right away but this time Yoyo didn't come in. I stepped out in the backyard and Yoyo was sitting in one of our patio chairs leaning on the back of it, and just watching the world go by. She was loving the backyard and beautiful summer weather. Please consider adopting this sweet little lady. Yoyo cannot wait to be in her forever home and to have a family that loves her and takes good care of her. She just might be the little lady that you never knew you absolutely needed in your life!!! 7/5/16: Yolanda, known to us as Yoyo, is such a sweet girl. Yoyo came to us from Minneapolis because she was significantly underweight and in the pound needing rescue immediately. We didn't hesitate; we knew she needed to come to Fargo and get healthy. When she got here, we discovered she has diabetes and her mismanaged diabetes was causing severe weight loss issues. She was exhausted and in pain, but when her tail wagged, we knew she still had hope for her future. After getting her diabetes, more, under control she has gained weight and feeling happy and wiggly. Her care needs are (ideally) 3 feedings per day (special food provided), insulin injections twice per day (she does awesome and insulin provided during timeline) and recheck appointments as needed (currently every 7-10 days; vet visits covered). All she really wants is to be loved and have someone to snuggle with. She is potty trained and does great in both the kennel and the car. As long as she is with her people, she is completely content; she makes for a great office buddy too. She is incredible with children. Yolanda and a volunteer took a trip to the cities where she got the chance to stay with the volunteer's 4 year-old brother and did fantastic. She let him do his thing and then when he wanted to snuggle, she was happy to roll over and let him giver her a belly rub. We can't say enough great things about Yoyo!

Foster Home Feedback 9/18/17: Maya has been with me for about 2 weeks now and she's been so much fun to have around. She gets along really well with my dog, even though he's three times bigger. She loves to go for walks but loves to cuddle just as much. She can often be found completely burrowed under a blanket on the couch. Maya loves attention, giving kisses, and a good belly rub as well. I also have two young cats and she does well with them also. She will chase after them if they're running, but it's just in fun. One of my cats absolutely loves dogs and they're often caught cuddling and Maya sometimes tries to get her to play by poking and prodding her with her nose. Maya is potty trained and crate trained as well. I don't think she would need to be kenneled, but since my own dog is kenneled when I'm gone, Maya is too. She readily goes into her kennel with a peanut butter Kong and is quiet until I come back home. I don't have kids, but I think Maya would do fine with kids that are respectful and understand how to behave appropriately around dogs. Technically, she may be considered a senior dog, but don't let that gray face fool you. She'd love to be the side-kick on your adventures and I think Maya would fit into just about any family.

Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, Vaccinations current, Microchip Walter is looking for that nice forever home! Foster Home Feedback 9/13/17: I am Sir Walter McCunningham and I am dictating to you with the assistance of my new secretary because an important issue has come up that I must address post haste: I am in search of a new, permanent assistant. While my current, temporary, assistant is quite knowledgeable and attentive to my needs and comfort, I would like to formally and respectfully request a permanent, loyal, human companion who needs—and needs to be—a devoted friend and confidant of lifelong status. What I lack in pedigree, I account for in rapid flexibility and zest for life. I am content with thoughtful reflection at your feet whilst you indulge in a thought-provoking classic novel, or I will accompany you while you admire your grounds and neighboring estates on a regular basis. I would be delighted to commune with a friendly canine companion, considering they respect boundaries when requested. I also have experience collaborating with youthful individuals, provided they have been properly informed how to treat an individual of my status. Hopefully Yours, Walter Secretary's translation: Walter is awesome. He needs about 12 hours to adjust to a new situation. He is completely potty trained and listens to the word "No". He TRUELY and COMPLETELY wants to please and he needs his person. Walter is very loyal and he wants to devote the rest of his life to someone. He crates well (barks for a few minutes when you leave) and interacts with my crazy Husky well. The main issue I've found that he needs to work on completing commands (he seems to know them, but tests what YOU know) and taking treats nicely. I'll work on that. You work on your application, please. 8/10/17: Meet Walter! He is very loyal and loving, does great with kids and with other dogs. Walter needs slow introductions to people he does not know. He will growl but with slow introductions, he is able to calm down. Walter loves to cuddle with his people of all sizes. Walter loves playing outside with other dogs and he does not need to be kenneled while you are gone. Walter would do best in a quieter home without a ton of traffic coming and going. He might also like another dog he can hang out with. He loves walks and car rides, any adventure is good with him!!

He can be quite a goofball! He enjoys going on long walks with his human friends. Sometimes he likes to bring his toys along too! He's pretty well mannered but sometimes has to be reminded to sit nicely when he's getting leashed up for a walk. I think he would be happiest with active humans that can help him burn off some of his energy. Although he loves people, Talon also likes to have his space at times, so it is important to be respectful of that and let him have space when he wants it. Talon doesn't like touchy feely and needs an adopter to give him his space. So no hugs, please. I look forward to seeing him whenever I have a shift at our building. He makes my day brighter!

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. I 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. 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.

Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. Statistics Name: Carlito Breed: Miniature Pinscher Age: 4 Years Size: Small lbs. ~Small range: up to 25 lbs Adoption Donation: $180 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, Vaccinations current, Microchip Carlito is a cute little boy who just knows you want to take him home! Foster Home Feedback Carlito has fainting-type episodes on occasion. He has had testing to determine if these episodes are due to Diabetes, Addison's Disease, or Epiliepsy, and results have been negative. Carlito's adopter must be understanding that Carlito may need further vetting to determine what these episodes are. 8/9/17: Carlito has been with us for about a month now and he is such a fun little dude! He has been very friendly to everyone he has met. He has met a couple of children, but he does not live with any so we are not sure how he would do with active youngsters full time. He loves to perch on the back of the couch or recliner and has found all the spots in the house where he can look out the windows and see what's going on in the neighborhood. Carlito marked a few times since he moved in; this has decreased somewhat since he got neutered. He still wears a belly band most of the time. Carlito took a couple of days to adjust to a new potty schedule and had one accident. It's helpful to keep an eye on him to make sure he goes potty before coming inside. Carlito kennels fairly well. He does tend to bark occasionally throughout the day so he may not be a good candidate for an apartment. Carlito does not chew on things he shouldn't (a big Plus!) He seems to really like to pick up stones and carry them around. We do take them away from him so he doesn't eat them and keep an eye on him when he is in the yard. Carlito also likes to dig a little bit but is redirected fairly well when he is told "no". Carlito doesn't know many commands so we are working on the basics like "sit" and "off". Carlito loves to sit with his human, preferably on their lap. He also loves to burrow under blankets at night and usually sleeps at our feet. Carlito lives with other dogs, most of which are bigger then he is. He gets along with everyone well and will let another dog know if he doesn't feel like playing. He can also be a bit bossy towards our bigger dogs and will chase them around the yard a bit. Carlito is such a sweetheart and a cuddle bug. He does have some personality quirks that his adopter will need to understand and accept about him but he has loads of love to give!

Have a question? 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, No Childen Gideon is super sweet and laid-back. Foster Home Feedback * No Children 8/21/17 Volunteer Feedback: I love seeing Gideon's smiling face when I'm at the shelter. (He will literally "grin" when he sees a familiar person!) He is shy around men, but he will warm up if you give him time. He's a super playful and fun guy when you get to know him...and of course, he's adorable! 8/21/17 Volunteer Feedback: Gideon has grown so much compared to when he first entered the shelter. Slowly but surely, he is getting more confident being around people. That being said, Gideon still has some stranger danger, particular towards men. He has not quite learned that men are okay and is very uneasy when around. He has grown so much! With slow introductions and a willingness to show him that people are good, Gideon will be the best dog! Gideon is a very loyal dog. Once he knows you, he remembers and he will be your best friend. He is very people oriented, sometimes disinterested in toys or treats. Gideon is such a sweet boy and has stolen my heart! If you are willing to put in the work to show him how good people are, Gideon will be a forever friend who will love you unconditionally! 7/11/17 Volunteer Feedback: Gideon spent most of the day at my home on a break from the shelter...and we had such fun! He was a complete gentleman and enjoyed romping in the backyard with stuffed toys.To say he looked 'joyous' is an understatement!! After playing, I brought him into our small walk in shower and gave him a bath, including his face and head, and he was calm and quiet. Gideon really seemed to actually like being brushed too. Since Gideon is afraid of men, I had him in a kennel when my husband came home and Gideon just quietly observed him without barking. Slow intros to men are necessary for some rescue dogs like Gideon (who probably have good reasons for their fears). I am so hopeful Gideon will soon get a foster or forever person or family, but until he does I hope to take him on more outings and expose him to lots of nice men. Love this guy... 3/1/17: Gideon is such a sweetheart! We love having him as part of our family! He loves to cuddle and relax, but also has a playful side. He enjoys running around with our dog in the backyard. Gideon does well on a leash for walks and sleeps great in his kennel. He also does a great job in the car...doesn't make a peep and usually sleeps! Gideon is fully potty trained and stands by the back door to let us know that he needs to relieve himself. He does well with female dogs but seems to not favor other male dogs. He can be resource aggressive; in a multi-dog home, I recommend feeding them separately. As an only dog, I truly believe he would be the best dog ever! Gideon just wants all of the love. He can also be shy around Human males and tends to gravitate towards females. Total ladies man! However, with time, Gideon warms up. Gideon listens to commands well and would be easily trained. He would be a great addition to a loving and special family. We will be a little sad to see him go, but very happy to find Gideon his forever family! 1/15/17 Volunteer Feedback: Oh what a handsome man! Gideon was a bit shy when I first meet him at my volunteer shift but by the end of my shift, we were best friends. He is a very well-mannered dog when it comes to walking and every once awhile he would turn around and jump on me for some cuddle time. He would benefit from some positive obedience training just to help keep his mind working and most important, work on socialization skills that he will need to become a more confident balanced dog.

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
