Posted Breed: Pug / Spaniel / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 300. Name: Brooke Age: 2 years Gender: Female Breed: Pug / Spaniel Weight: 22 lbs Dog friendly: No Cat friendly: No Kid friendly: No House trained: No Crate trained: Yes Energy level: Moderate - High History: From a shelter in Kentucky Adoption Fee: $300 From the Foster: Brooke is a very sweet little mystery mutt! She almost looks like a pug got together with a black lab ;) Brooke is a shy girl. She doesn't meet people or dogs with open arms, but give her some time and she loves other dogs! Wrestling with the resident Corgi is one of her all-time favorite activities. She is very fearful with new people, and will give a growl warning and lots of barking telling them them to back off. Brooke loves HER people, and while she is a fantastic little snuggler who adores foster mom and dad, she would not do well in a house with new people coming and going without further training. She does better with women than men. Brooke is still working on her house training and general manners but she's improved a whole lot! She would benefit greatly from continued socialization with people and dogs. She is a graduate of Basic Training at Twin Cities Obedience Training Club. She knows sit, touch, down, shake, wave, bow, and "relax" on her mat. She is a very fast learner, loves treat rewards, and LOVES going to school! She is also a graduate of Fetch Dog Training's class Wallflowers, for shy and fearful dogs. She has completed a Tricks class and has begun training in agility. She really loves her agility classes! As of February 2017 she has been taking these classes continuously for 3 months now. Her new forever home must commit to ongoing training... she loves learning, and it does her so much good and boosts her confidence in regards to strange people and strange dogs. She still has a way to go being comfortable with strangers, but she is making so much progress. Brooke loves toys, chewing on bones, and all sorts of fun things! She is crate trained and being crated when left alone is important so that she doesn't get into any trouble. She is very food and toy motivated so with lots of positive reinforcement she is a quick learner! She is very agile, and can leap from couch to chair and back with ease... got a coffee table? She might hop on that as a pit stop along the way! Brooke is very alert to all goings-on outside of the home and is a very vocal dog. She will alert to strangers and other dogs outside the fence or window. She would not do well in a living situation with shared walls. If you're looking for a young adult dog who is ready to learn and you are patient with love to give, Brooke is ready to grow with you and learn how to be the best little girl she can be! Experienced adopters only please!!!! If you are interested in meeting her please fill out an application today!

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.

Molly is a sweet very shy gal that will absolutely have to live with another dog, preferably a medium to large dog. She gets along great with cats too! She will come up to people and say hi but mostly shy’s away from people, she is very quiet and reserved. She loves sleeping in a dog bed next to our bed. She is very dependent on other dogs to guide her and she will go wherever the other dogs are. She is kennel trained but she definitely doesn’t need to be kenneled, she is not a chewer, destructive, or a barker. She is a gentle soul and has shown no aggression at all. She can be stubborn and if she is unsure of something and doesn’t want to do something then she is not going to do it, no coaxing will work. She becomes more stubborn if you tug on the leash but sometimes gentle persuasion on the butt will get her moving again. She will always need a martingale collar since she puts the brakes on and she could slip out of a regular collar. She needs a quiet household, no young children living in the home, but children visiting is fine, she is very gentle but should have a place to go if she wants to. Loves going for walks, gets excited when she sees the leash. She will need a fenced in yard. I would prefer her to have a family that is strong enough to lift her if necessary.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 200. Name: Cinnamon (Now goes by Maggie!) Age: Date of Birth: 08/29/2012 Gender: Female Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier mix Weight: 41 pounds Dog friendly: Selective Cat friendly: No Kid friendly: Yes, 10+! House trained: Yes Crate trained: Yes Energy level: Medium History: Local dog from Minneapolis Animal Care & Control Adoption Fee: $200 From the Foster: Maggie is a total package type of dog. Completely house trained, knows what furniture she is and isn't allowed on, absolutely no accidents, can go a full workday left out at home, good on walks with minimal pulling, loves to play fetch and tug, has all her basic commands on lock, and is totally fine sleeping wherever you tell her too - but if it is in your bed she would be delighted. She is incredibly smart, almost too smart, and can learn just about anything you can figure out how to train her to do. If you watch the amazing video her previous foster made, you can see how she is the perfect summer adventure dog, and she makes a fantastic snuggler for those sit in front of the tv nights. And in the winter, she loves wearing sweaters to keep her nearly hairless belly warm from the snow. She lets you know when she wants to play by bringing her preferred toy to you and pestering you until you play with her. And when she wants to go outside or back inside, she will gently tap the door with her paw and if you don't hear her, a single bark. Maggie is quick to like new people, but once she opens up after a couple weeks and gets really comfortable with you, you might even get a few kisses along with a very wiggly dog whenever you come home. Now you might be asking, if Maggie is the whole package, why is she still up for adoption? Well Maggie has a couple of quirks that means that she needs a very special family to give her a perfect forever home. Maggie is dog reactive. She will lunge, bark, or growl on walks when she sees other dogs. She is decently strong, so make sure whoever is walking her is sturdy enough to do so. Training has been improving this, but at her best, Maggie will still need VERY slow introductions to new dogs, and may only get along with a very certain type of personality of dog. My best bet would be a chill male who isn't going to try to be the boss, but won't get steamrolled by Maggie's dominant type personality. Maggie is what I call an "alert dog." Meaning, she will excitedly bark or growl when she hears the doorbell, knocking, or a car door slamming, or when she can see people outside in or near her yard. She will also bark if she hears similar sounds from the tv or radio. Once that person comes inside, she is instantly all wiggles and just wants to sniff the new person and get pet. This means that she likely would not be a good dog for a home with shared walls, or your neighbors might be a bit annoyed by her version of telling you someone is coming to visit. Maggie has a very high prey drive, so she needs to not live with any kitties or other small critters. Even if the small critters stay in their cages, I'm afraid that if she has access to seeing them in there, she will try to force her way in. She will also try to run after squirrels and bunnies on walks, but we are working on that impulse control with training too. Lastly, Maggie needs to be in a home with no small children and no small children coming in the future. Small kids make Maggie nervous. This is likely due to unpredictable noises and movement, and kids not being able to read her reactions to things. Small kid visitors would be okay as long as someone is watching to make sure she doesn't get overwhelmed, and that she is given a safe space away from the excitement where she will be left alone to chill. If there are going to be children living in the home, 10 years and older would be best. Thank you for reading though this essay of a bio for Miss Maggles. Feel free to send in an application if you have any questions on Maggie, and good luck finding your new best friend! Check her out here :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8kn246W1iQ

Energy level: Moderate History: Pulled from a high kill shelter Adoption Fee: $250 From the Foster: Hi! My name is Tomato, but my foster family prefers to call me “Pretty princess Tomato pie”. I have had a rough start to life and had a few health challenges but I’m all healed up and ready to find my forever family!! My favorite thing in the world is to be next to my humans, I love snuggling and sitting with them and making sure they know I’m right there for anything they need. My second favorite thing is peanut butter frozen bones and de-stuffing any sort of stuffed animal. I love those! I’m pretty food oriented (but I’m grain free!) and will do just about anything for a treat. I’m housebroken but not crate trained. I do well without a crate and just lie on the couch and protect the neighborhood when I’m left alone & I’m not overly vocal says my foster family. I love car rides, baths and even love going to the vet (They love me there)….not many dogs can say that. I also put up with my foster family putting hats and clothes on me, I secretly love my jammies! I get so so so excited to see my humans my little body just wiggles and wiggles! My forever home shouldn’t be a chaotic one, I prefer it just to be chill….I like walks and playing outside, but am still learning this whole family dog business, so I will need a person/family that is willing to work on this with me and probably without small humans running around, the older ones I can handle. So far I love it! If you’re wanting a Velcro fur friend and are willing to spoil me rotten- I mean, train me- then I’m your dog! Can’t wait to meet you. – Princess Tomato

He had a couple accidents in the house right away, but since we've gotten him into a routine, he's been great. We've crated him during the work day and so far he has done really well. He likes to go for walks, he's friendly with other dogs and humans he meets. He wants to meet everyone! Otherwise he sleeps on his bed in our bedroom, calms down at night fairly easily, is able to make it all night without being let out, doesn't try to jump up on the bed with us (although he would like to cuddle if you let him!).

Name: Akoya Age: Approximate DOB 11/18/14 Gender: Female Breed: Labrador Retriever Weight: 60 pounds Dog friendly: Yes Cat friendly: No Kid friendly: Yes House trained: Yes Crate trained: Yes Energy level: Average History: Came to rescue pregnant and injured Adoption Fee: $300 **FENCED YARD REQUIRD (6')** From the Foster: Hi! I’m Akoya, or just Koya as my foster family calls me. I’m told that I’m a total sweetie once you get to know me. I do get a little nervous when I meet new people and this can cause me to become reactive (barking/growling), so upon first glance, I may not seem like the sweet girl that I am, but once you get to know me you’ll fall in love for sure! I love to lay on the couch with my foster family, watch the squirrels, and chew on rawhides. I’m a great sleeper and currently sleep at the end of my foster mom’s bed. My foster mom tells me that I’m not the easiest to walk, that’s because I like to pull a bit, and will become reactive if I see another dog. The gentle leader helps with this, and I usually do a bit better if you have time to prepare me first, (having me sit, and saying command “with me”) but if there’s multiple doggies approaching, it’s usually best to cross the street. I will lunge towards dogs, and appear intimidating to other walkers. I seem to be good with submissive dogs who are smaller then me, and it’s usually best to introduce me when I’m off the leash. My foster family thinks I am mixed with husky, so that explains why I like to be the alpha dog! I am very protective of my foster family, and the house that we live in. If anyone comes to the house or approaches someone in my family, my first instinct is always to protect them. This means that I’m usually not very nice to strangers (especially men), and it just takes me a little while to be comfortable when a guest is in my house. I’m working really hard on this and making progress every day. I’m 100% potty trained, and am very good at letting you know when I need to go out. It’s been said that I’m crate trained, but my foster family has given me free roam (with no issues) so we’re not quite sure about that. I’m a dog that likes structure and I definitely need someone who will act as a leader for me. I’m a dog that aims to please, I just need set rules. Oh, and I should mention that I’m super smart and know tons of commands! I’m told that I’m a dog that had a rough start to life, whatever that means, but apparently this is why I have the issues that I have. I need someone patient to help me be successful in my forever home. Could that be you?

If you are looking for a good companion for your dog, Dixie is your gal! She’s definitely a dog’s dog, and identifies first with her fur siblings before realizing that foster mom isn’t so bad, either. Dixie needs to go to a home where her shyness is accepted, and the family will help her gain the confidence to be the loving dog I know she can be! She should live in a home with a fenced in yard, as she loves to be outside and is very curious about the wonders of the yard. She is house trained and crate trained, but starting to enjoy freedom in the house during the day and night. Dixie has lived with cats and is good with them but can be over interested in them. She would be more comfortable with older children that can help her with her confidence. Despite her shyness with people, she doesn’t have any fear of loud noises like thunder or fireworks! While Dixie is nervous at first, she is a very sweet dog, and within a few days will be your shadow once she knows and trusts you. She gets comfortable in new settings in time but it does take her a little while to fully trust new things. Once she trusts her people and her environment, she runs and plays and smiles… Can you open your heart and home to a shy girl who needs TLC and love?

He is left out gated in my living room while I'm away, he does not tolerate being in a kennel. As long as he can't get into the kitchen he's a good boy. He is super food motivated! He is a Velcro dog and is always by my side no matter where I am. He rides well in the car, and goes almost everywhere with me. He's good with all people and dogs. It would be great if he had a fenced yard, he really enjoys lying outside in the sun and chasing squirrels! I was recently treated for heartworms, and I am feeling much better now!

But beyond that, he is so eager to please and learn, and you will find him to be very intelligent. It really is a shame that whoever had him before didn't see the potential and the love that this boy had to give. But he's on the right track now, and he is such a happy dog with his new life. Norway didn't seem to have been in a house before, but he really just wants to be loved and cuddled, and know that he will never be without a warm home again. He is smart enough to figure out how to go the right way around poles and trees on walks, and has been a breeze to train, learning words like off, wait, and come. He would do well in a home with other dogs, as he very much enjoys cuddling and playing. I have a pit bull, and they LOVE to play and snuggle. However, if he could find an owner that was devoted to him, he could probably be happy with dog friends and visiting dog parks as well. I like that he has good protective instincts at home, but is very easy to walk, and is good with meeting strangers on the street. He will be suspicious of new company inside the home, but soon settles down when he realizes everyone is okay. One thing he would not be happy about is being left outside alone for long periods of time. When I first got him, he was afraid if I would shut the door behind him when he went out to pee...like maybe he wouldn't be let in. over time he has figured out that he can get back in whenever he wants, and that he is not in this danger, so I feel confident he has already worked through this. That said, he really wants to be around everyone else, getting petted and just hanging out watching TV. And I want that for him too. He really just deserves lots and lots of love and fuss. The other thing I've noticed is he can chew his tail when he is left alone and gets nervous, but I think he will work through this too. Norway's favorite thing is one of those giant bones to chew on. He will happily plop down and chew on a bone for hours.

Inside he uses his best manners. He listens well, is easy to redirect and knows basic commands. When I’m home he stays nearby either laying right at my feet or on the couch next to me. He is a cuddle monster in the morning and would love someone that let him sleep with them at night. When I’m at work he does well in his crate but I have been slowly leaving him out and he has done fine. His favorite thing (besides snuggles) is his ball. He will play fetch all day long if he can! He is great at bringing the ball back to you and even nudging it forward to you with his mouth. He would LOVE a house with a backyard that he could run around and play catch. He is great with kids (would recommend over 6 years old as he is a big boy and can be a bit of a steam roller when he plays) as they like to play catch with him and run around. Jackson is currently working on his leash aggression. While he is great inside (I live in an apartment and for the most part he ignores outside noises), when he is on a leash he will bark and lunge at dogs. When he sees people while he is on a leash he will bark to say hi but he can come on a little strong. Once he actually gets to the person he is fine and is happily wagging his tail. We are working on 'leaving it' and starting training shortly to work on both of these issues. Luckily, he is very food motivated which has been helping in his training. His new family would need to be committed to continuing his training. He seems to be selective in his dog friends and will need slow introductions to new dogs, and may only get along with a very certain type of personality of dog. Because of this, I would recommend avoiding the dog park. Jackson has a high prey drive and will try to run after squirrels and bunnies on walks (usually just when we are going out to go potty and he isn't as focused as on a walk). I would also recommend no small dogs as he may mistake them for a little furry critter. Cats are unknown, but unlikely based on the other information. This freckly boy is a big lover and would love to be a part of a family that will continue to work on his training to be the best dog he can be!
