Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 175.00. Hello! My name is Roman & I'm a super sweet guy who had the bad luck of having a lousy human. But, the buck stopped here! I'm now in a fantastic foster home, lookin' for furever. I walk well on leash, sit, shake, & down. I still have a LOT of puppy in me & I love to grab at your hands/clothes to play. I'm not hurtful; I just get so darn excited! I also ride well in the car. I can be dog selective & a meet & greet is REQUIRED with my potential adopter's resident dog because of that. Just to be on the safe side, ya know? I am fully vetted. Heartworm negative. Lymes positive, but I don't let that get me down! If you are interested in adopting me, visit my web page & submit an adoption app. Lookin' forward to hearin' from ya! I am currently located in Southwest VA, but transport to the most perfect humans can be arranged! PLEASE NOTE: In order to be considered in the as a potential adopter for this animal, we ask that you visit our website (www.lostfantasystables.org), click on the FORMS/APPLICATIONS tab in the menu on the left-hand side of the page, and fill out an adoption application. Our adoption process includes said application, reference checks, vet checks, an informal home visit, a meet and greet, as well as an adoption contract and fee/donation. You can learn more about our adoption process on our website, as well!

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.

      Seymour - CO...

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: English Foxhound-Redbone Coonhound Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Foxhound / Redbone Coonhound / Mixed (medium coat). Seymour - Redbone Coonhound/Foxhound mix - adult (5-6 years of age) - male/neutered - brown and white short coat - 48 pounds but tall and slender There is an old proverb that says “Every dog must have his day” - meaning that even the lowliest and unluckiest will, at some point, have success. Seymour was picked up as a stray with the number “9” painted on his side. He then spent considerable time (an entire year) living in a kennel, where he became quite distraught and thin. Finally, Seymour joined a foster home where he received support and patient encouragement to help him find his way. Seymour will "have his day" when he finds a home. Physically, Seymour is a beautiful hound with rich coloring and an offset white blaze down his nose. He is slender and refined in build. Seymour has a tendency to stare, which is the best way to describe his eye contact - certainly it is direct and focused. Seymour has been described by his foster mom and his T-Touch worker as a dog who does not have an aggressive bone in his body. His instincts for flight are still very much a part of his make up, but his initial fearfulness is slowly being replaced by a realization that he loves to be touched, and the discovery that there are people in the world whom he can trust. These strides have been hard-won for Seymour, and he is still a work in progress, but he continues to advance. Outdoors with the other dogs in his foster home Seymour is in his glory. He races around his fenced yard, voicing joyfully, ears streaming and his long legs stretched in motion. He loves to play chase with other dogs, and he is graceful and fast. The ideal home for Seymour would be a quiet home in a rural or semi rural area where Seymour’s self-expression (vocalizing) would not pose a nuisance for neighbors, and where he can enjoy these periods of happy release outdoors. Seymour is happiest in places where the sounds of nature predominate, rather than the sounds of cars and trucks and rushing people that Seymour, a country dog, finds stressful. It would also be a home in which his adopter(s) accept the fact that Seymour will need continuing support and guidance, while appreciating all the accomplishments he has already made. And enjoy the special individuality that is uniquely “Seymour”. When he is relaxed, Seymour can be quite a clown. He has a love of towels and a penchant for collecting them and distributing them throughout the house. He has a great fondness for toys that make either squeaking or crinkling noises, and it is best to keep magazines and books out of his reach, as he has been known to convert paper items into crinkly toys. He can also be very affectionate, which is a real source of delight to his foster mom. He will crawl up next to her and let her hug him, or reach up with his paws when he wants her to pet him. He loves to have his face rubbed, and if his foster mom is not there to do it, he will simply go to an article of her clothing and self-rub his own face. Seymour has never been particularly food motivated, and treats are one of the primary training rewards that we all use to teach dogs. Seymour has a very observant and problem-solving nature, and will actually open a kitchen cabinet in order to help himself to food. He is both intelligent and self-reliant in many respects. So one of the challenges for his foster mom has been how to guide him to use his “smarts” for positive things. They say that hounds have an especially well developed ability to intuit the emotional cues around them, and this seems very true of Seymour. His foster mom reports that he is very much in tune with her emotions. Seymour rides well in a car, and walks quite well on a lead in the quiet of the early morning. He becomes anxious and wants to run away when he is faced with traffic and a multitude of other people and dogs. He is comfortable with other dogs generally, but less so when confronted by them when he is tethered. Because of his impulse to flee, Seymour’s foster mom uses a Spook harness, so that he cannot back out of it and bolt. Here are some of the things specifically that Seymour’s prospective adopter(s) should be prepared to do: Be patient and gentle in guiding him and earning his trust. Be aware that his long time in a kennel has made him very afraid of being crated. Although he eats in his crate, it is always with the door open. Be resourceful in helping guide Seymour’s intelligence and intuitive understandings into ways that Seymour can succeed. An example would be nose work, which Seymour greatly enjoys and has a talent for. Continue his current medications, (Prozac and CBD oil) until they are no longer needed. Provide Seymour with a consistent routine of feeding and going outdoors to relieve himself. We also are requiring a securely fenced yard for Seymour. In describing Seymour we have endeavored to present him as he is right now, rather than as the dog we think he could be. Currently Seymour is in a suburban foster home, and on a daily basis he is contending routinely with things that frighten him. He is like a person who copes with an unpredictable world by being as self reliant as possible, and always keeping an eye on the nearest exit. Yet, despite his great worries, Seymour has also chosen to trust, and to learn, and he has done it without a trace of unkindness or aggression. We hope that there will be someone who will offer a permanent home and partnership to this gentle, worried dog, and that the partnership will grow into a real bond between Seymour and his adopter. Seymour is a courtesy listing. He is not a LFR dog and we have no other information on him. Please contact Amanda at akeerbs6@gmail.com if you are interested in adopting Seymour!

This little gal is as bright as a full moon and shines where she goes. Sadly little Luna was on her way to her adopter this winter when she suddenly had a seizure. She was taken to an emergency vet where she had three more seizures. She was evaluated thoroughly and no reason has been found for the seizures. She has not had any further seizures since that day. Luna would do best in a quiet home with few other dogs and without children. She is perfectly lovely around children but she needs a calm environment.
