Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). OLIVER is a simple guy, with simple needs. He is always happy although sometimes we think the lightbulb is on but nobody's home. Approx 8 yrs old and 45 lbs, Oliver was originally found as a stray. We believe he is a mix of Pit Bull and Bull Terrier. He is a happy guy who loves life & has a big smile! Oliver will be a good friend and companion. Gets along with a lot of dogs but lacks doggie social skills so is best placed with a tolerant dog - currently Jada is his playmate at our adoption center. Oliver LOVES to play ball, go for hikes & rides in the car. Oliver is neutered, chipped, vaccinated & on HW prevention. Please fill out an application at www.companimals.org if you can give this comical guy a home. Adoption $165

We currently do not have detailed information for this breed. If you would like to provide such information, you can do it here:

Request to Add a New 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: Cojack
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Corgi / Mixed (short coat). ROCK is a 10 yr old Jack Russell/Corgi who was surrendered because of "too much responsibility". Don't let the gray muzzle fool you - this guy can go! Rock is very good at riding in the car. He listens to basic commands to come, go lie down, sit, etc. He enjoys walks but also cuddle time. He has a very happy, pleasant personality. Likes to sit on your lap, and belly rubs. He's not destructive of household items. Rock seems best with dogs his own size or would be fine as an only dog so he could soak up all the love and attention. Not cat compatible. At 18 lbs he is a great, portable size. He loves kids and hiking adventures! He also loves to chase critters so a fenced yard is preferable in addition to his daily walks. Rock has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and is ready to go home with you! Adoption $165. Please fill out an application at www.companimals.org if you can give Rock a fur-ever home.

      Breed: American Bulldog
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). LEROY, above all the other animals in our care, embodies the spirit of CompAnimals Pet Rescue and the level of commitment we give to our animals for their entire lives. Here is his story: About 8 years ago I got a call from a senior citizen who was trying to catch a stray pit bull in her neighborhood in Elkton. The dog would follow children around but eluded adults. She was worried the SPCA would pick him up and euthanize him. The Cecil Co SPCA had a "no pit bulls" policy at the time. So for 3 weeks I tried to catch him, make friends with him, bribe him and for 3 weeks the SPCA was bent on catching him as well. Luckily, with the help of a butcher (who lived in the same neighborhood and had been giving him fresh beef) I was able to capture him. He was super friendly and hopped right in my car. We had him vetted and aside from a hairless patch on the top of his head he recovered from his ordeal pretty quickly. I fostered him myself. He had a distinct hate of cats and for that reason I wasn't able to keep him permanently. He did get along with other dogs and was a well mannered guest. It was probably a year or so before he found his "forever" home. Leroy seemed to have lucked out - he had a boy of his own and a big grassy yard. We didn't hear much from him after the initial settling in. There were other dogs to rescue and Leroy was starting his new life. Fast forward about 4 years - tragedy struck and Leroy's family fell apart. His mom was sick, the house was in foreclosure, Leroy was living in an empty house. We got a call that the family could no longer care for him. Leroy came back. Due to the family's lack of finances and the stress of it all, Leroy was in horrible shape. His skin condition which, looking back through vet records, had never been fully addressed. He was bald, scabby, bloody and thin. His head was sunken in. His hair loss was so great that you couldn't even distinguish what color he was. He wagged his tail. Antibiotics and prednisone kicked back the skin a notch but again it never fully recovered. He developed demodex, a type of mange, due to the pred suppressing his immune system. We sent him to a foster home hoping to boost his spirits and give him more 1-on-1 care. Another vet was added to his repertoire. More antibiotics, supplements, shampoos but still his skin was slow to recover. Some prickly hair poked through but not as much as we had hoped for. He developed a sore on his ear and one on his toe which was so painful he didn't want to walk. A culture was done and revealed not one, but 3, drug resistant bacteria. One was resistant to ALL antibiotics. The drugs that we had been giving him were slowly killing him. Fast forward to a year ago, stopped all Western medicine and enlisted the help of Always Helpful Veterinary Services & Dr Judith Shoemaker. To first visit was hours long as she worked up a plan and refining if supplements, powders and remedies. I noticed her lack of concern at the "flesh eating bacteria" - a condition so bad that one vet wanted to amputate part of his ear and toe and another felt it was hopeless and he should be euthanized. She was most concerned with his painful eyes. He has a condition called entropean where the eyelids roll in and the leashes rub against the eye. Leroy responded quickly under the watchful eye of Dr Shoemaker. His coat came in glossy and now covers about 2/3 of his body. His skin still has flare ups but not more drug resistant bacteria. He was tested for food allergies and put in an appropriate diet. To someone meeting Leroy today, for the first time, he looks like a wreck - like he was just rescued. But to those of us who have seen him in the road to recovery, he looks beautiful. Leroy has a pan pal who he's him out every week for his medicated bath and some R&R. This same wonderful pen pal is covering most of his medical expenses (thankfully Always Helpful has a monthly payment plan!). She has offered to continue with his support even after he is adopted. Leroy is now pushing 10 years of age. We would love for him to find his special home but if not, he is welcome to live his life out with us. Somewhere along the line he decided he didn't want to get along with other dogs - his Dr thinks it is because he felt so crappy. He has never lost his love of people - especially children. Leroy adopted kids! He is currently getting a break from shelter life and is in a "vacation" foster home for a few weeks. Check out the video his foster mom made for him.

      Apollo

      Breed: Pekingese
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pekingese (long coat). APOLLO is a 3 yr old Pekingese with emotional issues who joined us from the DE SPCA recently. At the SPCA he was showing anxiety by attacking his tail. This appears to be more than just "kennel stress" as he has continued this behavior in his foster home, especially if over stimulated. Apollo was seen at Crest View Animal Clinic, LLC and diagnoses with OCD behavior. We have started him in Clomacalm to "take the edge off" while we work in desensitizing him to the things that he over-reacts to. Apollo is good with other dogs although he dies guard his possessions so he would do best with a laid back canine companion he loves going for walks and "keeping him tired" is one if the Dr.'s orders! Apollo is considered "special needs" and will be available to a family who can continue to work with him. We have high hopes for this guy and will keep you updated on his progress! Apollo has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and tested (neg) for heartworms. Adoption $100. Due to his "issues" we will only adopt Apollo out locally so that we can be supportive in his care.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Hound / Mixed (short coat). LOUIE is a young Pit Bull/Hound mix (2 years old) whose college-aged owner acquired him from the south and brought him home but he was not a good match for the existing senior dogs in the home. Louie is already a favorite of our track team high school girls and he would do well with a runner in the home - he can easily do a 5K! We hope to get an obedience class under his belt ti get him started on the right paw for his new family-to-be - with his love of food and willingness to please he should be easy to teach! Louie would do well as an only dog or paired with a young female. He prefers a feline-free home. Louie has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and tested neg for heartworms . A fun dog for an active person! Please fill out an application at www.CompAnimals.org. Adoption $200.

Cali came to us from BARCS Animal Shelter where her owners took her when they could no longer care for her. Cali was never spayed and has multiple mammary tumors. She visited the vet yesterday for a pre-surgical exam and bloodwork (results back Monday). Cali touched a lot of hearts during her short stay at BARCS and came with some sponsorships which will go towards her spay/tumor removal surgery - tentatively scheduled for January 25. Cali would LOVE to recover in a foster home - if anyone is interested in fostering this lovely little old lady please fill out our foster care application at www.companimals.org. Cali will also be looking for a fur-ever home once she has healed :)

      Breed: Poodle (Miniature)-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) / Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). MIDDY (short for Midnight) is a 16 yr old Poodle/Terrier mix who was well-loved and given up due to his elderly owner's health. He is old and frail himself (under 15 lbs). Middy is currently in a foster home where he is receiving TLC but we would love for him to find a retirement home if his own. Middy is deaf and mostly blind but we feel he still has some quality of life. He enjoys his outside time in the yard or on leash. Currently living with cats and dogs - he is a little "flinchey" with his lack of hearing and sight and startles easily so not a match for a household with children. Middy's foster mom describes him as such: "Deaf, blind, senile, likes to walk. Pretty well crate trained. Easily adjusts to new surroundings because he's clueless." midnight has been previously neutered and well cared for over his lifetime And comes with all of his records. Adoption fee waived to the right family. Looking for someone who is experienced in hospice type care for senior dogs. Apply at www.companimals.org.

She had facial reconstruction surgery at the Baltimore shelter where she was dumped prior to coming to us. Angel is now settling into her foster home and has healed completely from her surgery. She is not yet spayed but we will address that in a few months so as to space out her going under anesthesia. Angel is a complete sweetheart! Great with kids - there are 6 yr old twins and older kids as well in her foster home. Angel has not yet been dog tested due to her trauma but will be when we feel she is ready.
