Dogs for Adoption

verifiedPosted Breed: Basenji / Labrador Retriever (short coat). Adoption Fee: 150.00. My name is Nala and I've been at PRBJ roughly 4 years. I'm a good dog and I love everyone that works here but when I love someone I get very protective of them, but isn't that my job??? I really need a home with a single person or a couple, someone that doesn't have a lot of company, and most importantly will be patient with me and see that I really only want to love my person and protect them. I was adopted for about 6 months and my owners loved me but when they would have people over I became nervous and that became an issue for them. I bond easily with one or two people and that's it so that's why we say only one or a couple. I wish someone would give me a chance to show them what a good girl I am........................ Love Nala 1/3/2017 foster update: For an experienced dog owner, Nala's behavior is not a significant issue. It's just a matter of her getting used to her new surroundings and all the new people. Over the weekend, my son, daughter and grandsons were all here and obviously we were very cautious with Nala around new people. Everything went fine and no issues occurred. New owner(s) need know that she is a young, energetic dog that needs some strength to control. If it was only me to consider, I would keep Nala as she and I get along just fine! However, she is too strong for my wife. I hate to have to have to return Nala because she and I have become very attached to each other in a short period of time. Keeping her in an area that is segregated from the rest of the house so we have total control has been a positive situation for Nala as she understands her boundaries and who is in control. It has been a great week to have her in our home and I wish we could have kept her longer. She is a great dog for an alpha owner(s) willing to put in the time and effort. 12/23/2017 foster update: Nala is in our home: consisting of 1 senior male and 1 senior female. She is doing well with me, the adult male, but we are being cautious with my wife and visitors. We keep Nala's crate on our lanai which we have opened up to the pool area so she can roam freely in that area except at bed time. This morning, my wife was entering the main part of the house and Nala wanted to go with her. My wife blocked her and Nala tried to nip her. Nothing serious but we are being cautious. Nala was not eating on a regular basis yet, and I assume she was not comfortable yet with her new surroundings. Today, I gave her a bit of canned food first....she gobbled it down...and then she ate her dry food. Seems to be a good plan!

verifiedPosted Breed: Basenji / Boston Terrier (short coat). Approx. DOB: 06-19-13 Approx. Weight: 16.8 Lbs Adoption Fee: $100, includes a two week trial to ensure everyone's happiness. NEEDS EXPERIENCED FAMILY WITH GOOD KNOWLEDGE OF DOGS. NO CHILDREN PLEASE. Raisin was found on the side of the road by a Good Samaritan and brought to the shelter. When his time was up there we took him on. Raisin had been adopted before. He was returned after being pushed into a kennel and he bit back. Something to understand about Raisin is that he isn’t a bite dog. He just Reacted to a bad situation. Our little Raisin is the most loving and kissy fellow. At the rescue he gets to play with five to six small dogs every day and they love it. He wouldn’t do so well with larger dogs but the right mellow one may be his best friend. Raisin being part Besinji is a lot of fun if you like the breed. They can be very active and jump high for that frisbee; or kicking on the couch like a potato. Raisin is very intelligent and enjoys stimulation with activities and toys. Since he can jump high, children 13 and up would be advised for Raisin. Raisin likes car rides and would love to go hiking with you. He wants to be everyone’s friend which is awesome. Not too sure about cats but I’d say no just to be safe. Give our little Raisin a chance. Raisin has been neutered, vaccinated, heart worm tested negative, wormed and micro chipped. If you are interested in adopting Raisin, please complete the adoption application located at www.furrykidsrefuge.org/adoptadog and a dedicated volunteer will get back to you as soon as possible. Furry Kids' Refuge is in need of good quality dog and puppy food with meat as the first ingredient.
