Posted Breed: Terrier / Whippet / Mixed (short coat). Murph is a 32 lbs, HW- hound mix who is very shy. He was born to a stray mom as part of a litter of 9. He is the runt of the litter and we brought him to the shelter because his siblings (in foster) had begun to pick on him. He is very scared and lays in a ball in the back of his crate with his head turned away. He needs a special person to step up for him.Intake April 2015. Update: He has been with us over a month now and will now walk very well on a leash and let us pet him. He is not eager for attention but will sometimes approach his kennel gate when we arrive. Update from Foster Mom: My circle of insecurities is getting smaller every day. I am not a fan of males, but I am kinda growing fond of my foster dad. I am most comfortable on my mama's bed in a smaller room where there is less stimulation. I take treats and love when I am on her bed and will snuggle up to her. Out of the bedroom is a different story. I am skittish but coming around. I love to play outside with all my four-legged friends and my new toys! All in all I am a good courageous boy learning to love humans! Due to Ruger's circumstances, he is currently shy around new humans and still learning to trust. Due to that fact, he is not available for adoption. BUT - we are accepting applications and if your application seems like the perfect fit to ensure Ruger will still continue to trust and learn we will work with you and the Foster Family to ensure an easy transtition. ~~ The adoption fee for Ruger is $250.00. He will come to you fully vetted, neutered, and microchipped. Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, deworming, and flea treatment.

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.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Picasso was found as a stray and never claimed. He has spent most of his life at the SPCA. He was not daring well so we decided to pull him and give him a chance. No one cared enough about him to ever show him anything. He needs some manners but we are confident that once someone spends time with him, they will see what a great boy he is. Picasso is a big sweetheart and loves to have fun. Please consider opening up your heart and your home to him. We are searching for a foster or better yet his forever home. Picasso is currently in boarding.

      Timmy Jr

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Timmy (or Tim-Tim as I like to call him or Timothy Jr. when he misbehaves) is 5 years old & has the energy of a 2 year old. Don’t be fooled by his looks! He is a total LOVER & just wants to be with his humans. His early life was not so good to him & he has scars all over his body. BUT let’s be honest, his broken jaw has caused the cutest snaggletooth we have ever seen! He spent years chained outside & then 2 more years in a kennel until he came to his foster home in August 2017. He adapted to a loving home life very quickly & enjoys every second of it. He has one foster fur sister, Luna (she weighs 20lbs), who he doesn’t pay much attention to BUT he will sniff her or steal bones back when she’s not looking. (She does the same to him too) He walks great with Luna & has no reaction when he sees other dogs (big or small) when out in the neighborhood. However, if he sees a squirrel, rabbit or cat he will want to chase it! Because of this, he can’t be in a home with cats. Timmy is friendly with people of all sizes but due to his strength & size (65lbs) it is recommended that he be in a household with no young children. He would be ok with children 16 years or older. Please don’t let that sway you! He has been around young kids & has NEVER had a negative reaction both at his foster home & at public events he has been to. He just doesn’t realize his own strength sometimes! Timmy is fully housebroken. He doesn’t bark when he has to go, but he will linger by the door & that’s his way of saying “I have to go potty!” Timmy loves to run around in the yard & he sniffs EVERYTHING! We do request that his adoptive home have a fully fenced in yard so he can run & play to his heart’s desire. He loves basking in the sun in the summer time. Timmy has never had any form of training until now & he has made HUGE progress. He still likes to mouth on you when he plays & he doesn’t realize his strength when he does this. BUT he only does this when he is bored or over stimulated. His tail wags the entire time so he thinks he is being playful with you. But throw him a bone & he will gladly take that to chew on instead. Remember, he has had NO training until now & he used to do this all the time BUT after being in his foster home, this puppy-like habit has significantly decreased. With more patience & training he is perfectly capable of getting to the point where he doesn’t do it at all. He is a very smart boy! When Timmy is tired, he wants nothing more than to snuggle up with his humans. He is a great snuggle partner & will for sure keep you warm in the winter time. He loves belly rubs & ear scratches. He also loves to give kisses. He goes into his crate with no issues at night or when you aren’t home as long as you give him a treat. But he would most definitely prefer to be in bed with you. When he’s been a really good boy he enjoys beef marrow bones or a frozen kong filled with peanut butter. He loves his treats! This lover of a guy deserves his furever home after all he has been through. The adoption donation for Timmy Jr is $250.00. He will come to you fully vetted, neutered, and microchipped!! Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, deworming, and flea treatment.

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Boston Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Bailey once had a family. She adored them. They dumped her at a high kill shelter in NYC. She was on death row and terrified. What Bailey didn't know was that she had a Guardian Angel watching over her. This Angel went and got her from NYC - he had to save this poor girl. He contacted us and we agreed that we had to help her. She had been through enough. Bailey is an itty bitty Boston pitty - she's super fun and also a HUGE snuggler. Bailey loves people more than anything. She just wants to be close and feel their touch. We are searching for not only a forever home for Bailey but also a foster home. Currently we truly believe that Bailey's best home would be one without other dogs or young children. She is interested in cats and will chase so if you have a cat an official meet will be necessary. She has been moved around so much that she needs a calm and stable environment to be able to decompress and chill out in. Please submit an app if you are interested in her and also contact us. We all agree that Bailey would make any family the perfect addition. **Beauty of Bailey captured by Marlee and Me 716** The adoption donation for Bailey is $250.00. She will come to you fully vetted, spayed, and microchipped! Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, deworming, and flea treatment.

      Posted Breed: Vizsla / Mixed (short coat). Jynn was found as a stray in a rural Town. No one claimed her. DITR wanted to show this young girl what life was all about. A wonderful DITR foster family stepped right up and took her into her home. Jynn is learning to trust and to know what being loved feels like. Jynn is super smart and eager to please. She has a ton of energy and is still learning lots so an active family and one that can continue her training requirements would be best. Jynn gets along with other dogs, but isn't good around cats. With her energy level and still learning her manners, we would suggest no small children in the home. Jynn deserves a family to call her own - could that be you? **beauty captured by Marlee and Me Photography** The adoption donation for Jynn is $275.00. She will come to you fully vetted, spayed, and microchipped!! Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, deworming, and flea treatment.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hello everyone! This is Pete? Pete came to us as a very sad and confused boy. He had forgotten what it was like to have a family and forgotten what it felt like to be loved. When he first arrived to our fosters home he was spinning uncontrollably, he was at least 15lbs underweight and he couldn't remember what it was like to cuddle in a bed with someone who just wanted to love him and hold him all night. We are proud to say that today he has flourished into this loving snuggle bug that only wants to play and cuddle!! He's a very energetic boy who has tons of love to give. Hes very obedient and listens well. We believe he should be in a home with no other doggies but he does do well with his current foster kitty brother. His favorite hobbies are taking long walks, playing ball, hiding his bones and playing fetch in the yard with his foster daddy and mommy. He also enjoys car rides and extremely large stuffed animals to cuddle with!! Please help us find the perfect home for this sweet sweet baby! He deserves the world and then some! We are so honored to have been able to help this energetic lovable boy out! Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, deworming, and flea treatment.

      Breed: Coonhound-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Coonhound / Mixed. This ridiculously handsome coonhound mix is Bones!! He is approximately 4-5 yrs old (estimate) and weighs around 50 lbs. Bones was a stray that found himself in a shelter where he was very scared and not doing well. So he became a Diamond and is now safe in a foster home. When Bones first arrived at his foster home he was very unsure of things. He knew nothing about life. It was like having a brand new puppy but in an adult dogs body. His foster mom was heartbroken to see how scared and unsure of everything this sweet boy was. It seemed clear to her that he had never known the comforts of a home and simply had no life experiences. Bones is now learning all about life and has come so far, but his new family will have to be patient with him and continue to guide him. This boy is a complete love bug that just wants to be wherever his humans are. He is very active and loves to run and play but also appreciates his downtime. On his wishlist from his new family is lots of yummy treats, a good antler to chew, some fun toys, someone that will enjoy his daily walks with him, a fenced in back yard where he can play and get his zoomies out, and most importantly a whole lot of LOVE!!! Bones will do best in a home without small children. This is because at times he is still fearful of new things , and he does have impaired vision (not blind and does not slow him down), so all of his family members should be old enough to understand and respect that. Also no cats for this boy. With proper introductions and slow integration Bones does ok with other dogs; however he does seem to prefer female dogs. Of course a meet is always required to assess compatibility with any other dog. Are you the special person this sweet boy has been searching for? The one that will finally give him all he deserves and has sadly missed out on in his life? If you would like to meet him to find out fill out your application today!!! The adoption donation for Bones is $250.00. He will come to you fully vetted, neutered, and microchipped! Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, deworming, and flea treatment.
