Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Evie, once a loving mama of 8 sweet pups, has matured into a gentle 4-year-old lady in love with life and in love with loving. Quite simply, she is worth her weight (50 pounds) in love. Her two favorite pastimes are generously doling out kisses and cuddling up close to her people as often as paws-ible. She never tires of either of these. Evie moves about slowly and humbly but her tail whips constantly from side to side almost doing 360 degrees before reversing again. She also has the most amazing smile or "submissive grin." For those who have never experienced this phenomenon, it's incredibly adorable. Evie smiles when her people come home. She smiles when she gets some loving and she smiles when she gets excited. Yet as sweet and smiley as she is, she is very nervous in new situations, during storms, and while traveling. Evie is not destructive or volatile, she just pants and drools until the experience ends and needs a patient family who can help her overcome or ride out these fears. Now in search of her forever home, Evie requires one with a privacy fence that is 5 feet or higher. Evie is a world class jumper but if Evie can’t see anything tempting to chase, she doesn't jump. But just imagine having this sweetheart jump up on your lap or your sofa for some snuggling and that’s another story altogether. Evie is fostered in Birmingham, AL but is willing to travel to nearby cities for her happily ever after. For more information about this special Mama Bear please contact info@forrescue.net and ask about adopting Evie and having her love you forever.

More About Blue Nose Pit/Chocolate Lab 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.

      Emmy Lou

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Coonhound (short coat). Meet Emmy Lou! She’s a 10 month old, 41 pound foxhound/coonhound. Emmy has soulful hound dog eyes and incredibly soft fur. She is full of silly, playful puppy energy. She loves to run and jump and chase a tennis ball. She even brings it back almost every time! She loves stuffed toys and rope bones and plays gently with them. Emmy Lou would love to have another dog in her new home, but an older, more sedate dog may find her energy tiring. She would likely do well with older kids who can understand she may need some space and time to warm up at first. A secure yard is essential for Emmy Lou since she would be likely to wander off while following her nose. She loves treats and will happily sit for one. She would be easily trainable with a little time and plenty of yummies! Emmy Lou is still learning to live indoors and be part of a family, but she is a quick learner and is about 80% potty trained. She will need a patient family who understands that she’s never had the chance to live in a home before she came to her fosters’. She responds very well to gentle correction when she is out of line. She is crated while her fosters are at work and has never been destructive or excessively whiny. Emmy Lou has some typical hound characteristics. She’s vocal; when she’s happy, when she’s frustrated, when she wants attention- she makes some sort of noise (so an apartment isn’t ideal for her). She’s suspicious of new people and nervous when she tries something new. She needs an owner who can offer her stability and opportunities to build her confidence. With some patience and plenty of ear scratches, Emmy Lou will become a loyal companion and bring joy to some lucky family for years to come! She is being fostered in Huntsville, AL. She is spayed and fully vaccinated. Email us at info@forrescue.net with any questions about this sweet girl!!

      Posted Breed: Shar Pei / Labrador Retriever (short coat). Meet Rarity..... This sweet 3-4 year old girl is a Shar Pei / Lab Mix and she is as easy going as they come. Rarity wants nothing but love and human companionship. She is housebroken and great on a leash. She is not crate trained as she stays out in the house 8+ hours daily and does just fine. Rarity enjoys short and easy going walks. She does have arthritis in both hind legs from old injuries that went untreated, so she's not a runner but she gets around just fine. She's a happy girl with a low-medium energy level. She is good with dogs in public, but would do best with another low energy dog or in an only dog home. Rarity is fostered in Huntsville, Al.

      Harley

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Miniature Pinscher
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher / Feist (short coat). Harley had a rough start to life. After being thrown out of a car and having a deep wound, the vet found out that he would have to have his leg amputated. Still, he loves being cuddled and held, and all he wants in life is someone to sit with him and occasionally pet his ears. He's even housebroken and uses his one paw to tap on the door when he has to go out. Harley gives the best kisses, and LOVES being rocked like a baby. Since he did have such a hard start to life, he takes a little time to warm up to humans. He will need a home without kids, big dogs or cats, and with a family that understands he needs a little space before he trusts you.

      Breed: Beagle-Border Collie Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Beagle / Mixed (short coat). My foster family gave me the name Mona Lisa because I make everyone smile. They call me Mona for short. I'm a one year old, 30 lb, beagle/border collie mix. I've never met a human or animal that I don't like. I'm full of energy and would love a play mate. I adore squeaky toys, playing tug of war with ropes, and playing outside with my foster family’s dog. I'm crate trained and is almost fully house trained. I enjoy walks on a leash and I'm working on manners. I love to play with the kids in my foster home but I get very excited so very young children may not enjoy playing with me. I am fully vaccinated, spayed, microchipped, and up to date on all preventatives. I'm currently in Huntsville AL but available in your area!

      Folly

      rescue
      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Beagle (short coat). Folly has had a hard life, but she doesn't let it get her down! This 40-lb girl, who we estimate is between 6 and 8 years old, was turned in to a high-kill shelter along with her puppiesby their owner. They were living in a pen in the backyard and were turned in because they were "annoying because they kept getting out of the pen." This was not Folly's first litter, as we can tell by looking at her poor belly. She was so happy to get out of the shelter and into a foster home. She was spayed (no more puppies! Yay!) and then had an additional surgery to remove some mammary tumors, but she now has a clean bill of health. Folly is the snuggliest, most exuberant girl ever! She LOVES all people, loves food, loves blankets and couches. She is completely house-trained, surprisingly, after having been an outside dog all her life. She is currently in a foster home with 7 other dogs and does fine with them. She would rather be in a home with only one or two other dogs so she could get more of the snuggling she missed for her first years. She does well in her crate, but she doesn't need to be crated because she has never tried to chew anything that's not a dog toy. She would love to have a nice couch to lie on and a people bed to sleep in while cuddling with her favorite person. Could you be Folly's special person and make her life even better than it is now?

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). ~~Hi! My name is Mitzi. I love to run and chase birds and squirrels. My foster mom calls me a gazelle because of the way I run and jump. I’m crate trained, potty trained and up to date on my all my shots and flea and heartworm prevention meds. I love to snuggle and I am very sweet, but I do like to be boss of the pack. I do better with older children and would definitely need a fenced yard. I get very excited when it is eating time! My foster mom said I talk and dance when it’s time to eat. She’s always laughing at me. If you are interested in making me your new family member, please go to forrescue.net and fill out an application. I am fostered in Hazel Green, Alabama.

      Breed: Lab-Pointer
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Pointer / Mixed (short coat). Lily has had a rough go of events. She was at the shelter with severe lick wounds on her front and back paws. After several rounds of medicine and physical therapy, xrays were done, and her front foot was too damaged for repair, and she ended up losing her front leg. Luckily, the back leg is healing nicely. Lily has not let that affect her personality or spirit. She loves to go on walks, playing tug-a-war, and cuddling on the couch. She is truly an inspiration to anyone that has to overcome challenges. She must be an only dog. Lily does get along great with her human family, ignores cats, is crated trained, and house broken. She is truly a great girl, with a low to medium energy level, and a beautiful smile!!
