I need a D-O-G!

Check this out! Hang in there, the music picks up after a bit. Fun!

Meet Einstein!

Einstein is blind. But before you count him out as your next best friend please give him a chance and read more about him. You see, even though he is blind....Einstein is a wonderful little dog despite the fact that he spent the first part of his life in pure misery.

Einstein had spent his whole life living in a cage. Rescued from a puppy mill where he had been used for breeding...and having nothing his whole life, this little guy is amazingly loving and sweet. After discovering that Einstein was blind due to cataracts, he was no longer "valuable" and was tossed out like trash. He was rescued and we are so happy to have him!

This six year old, male, cocker spaniel, may be blind, but it seems that he may be able to regain some sight in his right eye with surgery. He loves other dogs and people. He is such a sweet boy. His tail wiggles in pure joy whenever he is with people.

Because he is blind, he needs people who will understand his disability...if you can do that, Einstein will wiggle his way into your heart and will be the best friend you will ever have!

We found Einstein currently being cared for by Pet Promise in Columbus, Ohio. Pet Promise is made up a a group of volunteers who care about the future of companion animals and who work together to help change the future of homeless pets.

Charlie is Shih Tzu, white and tan, male about 12 lbs. He is about 3 years old, had a moderate activity level, is very friendly and good with kids, other dogs and cats.

Meet Trisket!

Meet Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kit!

Butch and Sundance are here to tell you, they are serious about getting adopted! They are ten month old lab mix pups who love long walks, playing together, and treats. The more treats, the better! They are looking for an owner who has time to spend with them..since they are puppies still.

Both Butch and Sundance could use a little obedience training to make them the best dogs they can be. And they would like to go home together, but it is not a requirement. They would do just fine being adopted separately.

We found Butch and Sundance being cared for by the Pet Helpers Rescue and Adoption Center in Charleston, South Carolina. Pet Helpers is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to end the euthanasia of all adoptable cats and dogs.

Meet Fuzz!

Fuzz is a Kelpie, Border Collie, Aussie cross about 10 months old. She is a 37lb herding mix who was surrendered with two other dogs when their guardian moved and could no longer keep them.

She is good with dogs and livestock but has not been exposed to cats. Fuzz is housetrained and knows some basic obedience. Like her breed type, Fuzz is a very active and intelligent dog who will need a guardian that is commited to keeping her mentally and physically exhausted. Fuzz is a sweet girl who is well socialized and would do well in almost any family dynamic.

Fuzz is currently being cared for by the folks at the Humane Society of Galletin Valley in Bozeman, Montana. Their mission is to compassionately shelter the lost and surrendered pets of Gallatin and Madison Valleys, and to enhance the lives of people and companion animals through pet adoption and education.

Meet Chex!

Chex wants to be your friend. He is approximately 5 years old. If it's not too much trouble, he'd like to follow you around when you're outside, and sit next to you when you're inside. He'd like to lay his head gently on your lap so you can pet him.

He'd like to sleep on the floor next to your bed at night, and lay his head on the edge of the bed for more petting when you wake up. He'd like you to take him on nice long walks, and to the park. But more than anything, he doesn't want to be alone again.

Chex was picked up as a stray by a shelter in rural Indiana. He must have been abandoned by his previous owner because there is no way this sweet, sweet dog would ever run away from home. He's housebroken, walks nicely on leash, and knows some basic commands. He'll gladly learn some more if you take the time to teach him.

Chex is good with other dogs, but is most interested in his people. He likes kids, but shows a bit too much interest in cats, so he should go to a cat-free home. Don't let that furry coat fool you -- this guy is only 30 pounds, every one of them oozing sweetness and charm.

Chex is being fostered in the Chicago area through Great Lakes Border Collie Rescue. Their mission is twofold: to rescue, retrain and rehome the unwanted border collies who have come into their care, and to promote responsible pet guardianship through education.

Meet Samantha!

Samantha is such a beautiful little girl, a two year old cocker spaniel, who is loving, house-trained, friendly and just marvelous. She is a sweet doggie who was given up because her previous family was no longer able to care for me.

Meet Zazoo!

Zazoo is a 15 month old little cutie who is very loving & affectionate. He is a pure bred JRT - a small guy, who only weighs 11 pounds. But don't let that smallness fool you, he is a big bundle of energy, and would make a great agility dog, or fit in very nicely with an active home.

He is currently being fostered with an agility family and is learning manners, behaviors, and some agility obstacles, as well. He is crate trained and leash trained, knows basic commands, and is good with dog savvy cats and children.

Zazoo would make a great jogging buddy, or agility pal. True to the JRT breeding, he is amazingly smart and picks up tricks very quickly! He is neutered, UTD on his shots, microchipped and on flea & HW preventative.

Currently Zazoo is being fostered through Smaller Paws in Indiana. Smaller Paws is a volunteer based rescue, dedicated to re-homing mostly Pomeranians, other small/medium dogs, and occasionally larger dogs when they have room that have been abandoned by their owners. Most come from animal shelters that due to limited space, cannot house them for long.

All their dogs are kept in foster homes where they are able to learn their likes and dislikes, and their good and ...not so good behaviors. It also allows them to re-train the unfavorable behaviors, and to encourage the better ones! Smaller Paws does long distance adoptions at the adopters cost, if there are safe flights or travel opportunities, and they have volunteers in the area to do a home visit. They require an application, references and a home visit to adopt one of their dogs.

Meet Mia!

Are you looking for good looks and a great personality -- that sweet girl who loves everyone she meets? Do you wish you could find a dog with high drive, but doesn't mind hanging out, too? Then Mia might just be the girl you've been searching for.

There's one thing you should know about Mia, she lives to play! She'll play ball and tug as long as you want, and she even enjoys just playing with toys by herself. Mia is now house trained and crate trained, but she came to rescue with no training, so she can be a bit of a wild child at times.

However, she's been working hard to learn her manners, and really gets a kick out of learning all sorts of new things. She's learning quickly to sit instead of jumping on people, sit and wait at doors, walk on leash and leave things alone. She'll need a family that will commit to continuing her education to help her reach her potential. Her keen mind, eagerness to work with people, and her love of playing and running give her great potential for sports --agility, flyball, or whatever her new family enjoys.

Mia's biggest hurdle was learning how to play well with other dogs. She has a lot of herding instinct and intimidated some dogs. She has met a lot of dogs while she has been in her foster home, and now does well with most of the dogs she meets. She's learning to "play nice" and has learned to enjoy the company of other dogs now. The other dogs like running and playing with her, too!

While Mia loves to run and play all day, she is also very content to relax in the evening and chew on a bone or sit quietly by your chair for some petting. Mia is always eager to meet a new person, and she just adores children.

Mia is ready for a forever home with a family who loves Border Collies and their quirks. She is an active, happy girl who needs a family that will continue her training, and give her the play and exercise she adores (and also a good daily dose of petting, of course!) She is up-to-date on vaccinations, is heartworm negative, spayed, and her hips checked out great for any dog sport.

We found Mia listed with the Border Collie Rescue of Texas. Mia is being fostered in the Houston/Katy area.

Meet Betty Boop!

Betty Boop was found at a local shelter and taken in by Project Pet in Columbia, South Carolina. She can be a wee bit nervous at first, so a home with very young children might not be ideal. Older kids would be great and she'd likely enjoy them very much. She's quite pretty and has a very pleasant disposition. As with all their pets up for adoption, she's been spayed, vaccinated and is microchipped.

Project Pet believes companion pets have value beyond economic measurement and are entitled to legal, moral and ethical consideration. Their mission is to form a federation of like-minded organizations and individuals to alleviate animal suffering; set safe and humane standards for companion pets and shelters; and educate and increase awareness of the necessity for spaying and neutering to reduce the overall number of unwanted companion pets, eventually reducing the need for euthanasia.

Betty Boop is 1-2 years old and looking for her forever home. Click here for more info!

Meet Honey!

Honey is an incredibly sweet and gentle Fox Hound/some other kind of hound mix. She weighs about 40lbs and is full grown. Honey is great with children, other dogs and cats.

She is house and crate trained and is learning how to walk on a leash. Honey loves to run and play. She needs a home with children old enough to know not to hurt her and a fenced yard to play in.

We found Honey currently being cared for by Saint Seton's Orphaned Animals in Arlington, Virginia. Saint Seton's is a Virginia Corporation dedicated to rescuing, training, and placing homeless animals into permanent loving homes in Virginia, Maryland, and DC. Saint Seton's strives to educate the public and adopter's on proper care of companion animals.

Meet Mack!

Mack was born in November 2006. His mother was brought to us by a homeless man when she was very pregnant and very thin. All the puppies have been successfully adopted except for Mack.

He is now a well behaved young boy who loves to play with other dogs and would like a home with a young, female playmate. He also loves children and does very well with cats. Mack needs an owner who will continue his training and has had dog experience before.

American Bulldogs are an assertive breed but are gentle and loving with family members. They are intelligent, sensitive and generally quite calm. Mack knows how to sit, lay down, stay and come when called. He is housetrained and crate trained.

Mack is currently being cared for by People's Anti Cruelty Association /Albuquerque Animal Rescue (PACA), a No-Kill rescue group, was founded in 1973.

Meet Charlie!

Charlie is a cute, energetic Jack Russell terrier/beagle mix who is still under a year old. He is happy and friendly, just like a pup should be. Charlie loves other dogs and he does well with people.

He walks pretty well on the leash, though running around is something he's better at. Charlie has an injured leg that will always have a little bend in it, but it doesn't slow him down a bit. He's a smart one, and he can show you the sit command, though he tends not to sit still for long.

Charlie is currently being cared for by the Animal Defense League in San Antonio, Texas. The Animal Defense League is the largest 'no-kill' non-profit animal shelter in the Southwest, celebrating over 70 years of operation. They provide healing and compassion for thousands of animals annually, and find loving homes for them every day.

Meet Eddie!

Eddie is a 1 year old, neutered male, Lancashire Heeler Mix. He was found wandering stray in New River and when brought to foster care spent the first three days huddled in his bed in the corner of his room. He was terrified.

On day four Fast Eddie realized he'd fallen into a sweet deal, no yelling, lots of love, great food, comfortable digs and his true personality emerged. Eddie loves to run, loves playing with any and all other dogs, absolutely loves with a great passion any toy stuffed or rubber squeaky, especially big squeaky balls.

Eddie loves playing in a hose, a puddle, and a pool. He is always on the go, experiencing all the fun and life he obviously never had in his puppyhood. If you can slow him down long enough, he'll let you love all over him, then he's off like a shot for more fun. Probably not good with cats, or small children, but would be great with one or multiple playful energetic dogs his size.

He is house-trained, dog-door trained, loves to ride in a car, hasn't been tested on leash training. Can free feed, won't overeat. Current on all shots and is microchipped.

Eddie is currently being cared for by Foothills Animal Rescue in Cave Creek, Arizona. For more info on Eddie, click here!

Meet Olsen!

Olsen is his name and activity is his game! His little tongue pokes out all the time and his foster mom says it's so endearing. I guess that's good!

He loves attention and kisses and rides really great in the car. Olsen is still very much a baby and needs work with his housebreaking, but he is such a lover with a great temperament.

Olsen is currently being cared for by a foster family through Rescue Me Yorkie Rescue. Rescue Me is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring the safety and well-being of the Yorkshire Terrier breed. They are a small group of rescue buddies who came to know one another through one common interest - saving the lives of dogs.

Meet Booie!

Booie is a Husky gal just over a year old. She will win you over with those beautiful blues! Her previous owner had to move somewhere and couldn't take her with him so she is in need of a new home.

She is 99% housebroken. This only means if she is left for very long periods of time, she may have an accident but normally does not. She has done fine with most other dogs. Booie should have a fenced yard at her new home and it should be at least 5' chain link or privacy.

Booie is currently being taken care of by the Pet Refuge in Mishawaka, Indiana. Pet Refuge is a not-for-profit "no-kill" animal shelter run by volunteers for the placement of unwanted and abandoned pets into responsible permanent homes.

For more information on Booie (which is one of my nicknames, by the way), click here!

Meet Lilly!

Lilly spent several months at a local shelter, where despite her loving nature, she was facing death row. She is a medium-sized, black lab mix who has an uncommonly sweet nature. She has a resilient spirit about her and seems to regard newcomers as new friends. Born in 1999, this energetic girl will need a family with an active lifestyle. She loves to romp and play in the sunshine—and particularly loves to swim!!

We found Lilly being cared for at the Home At Last Santuary in Salvisa, Kentucky. Home At Last Animal Sanctuary, accredited by the American Sanctuary Association, provides lifetime care for many animals including dogs, cats, pigs, cows, goats, rabbits and a horse, and includes a separate wildlife refuge.

They are a for-life sanctuary, emphasizing the concept of compassion and offering exceptional quality of life for many formerly abandoned or abused animals. Programs include rescue, adoption, educational outreach, low-income spay/neuter assistance, and feral trap/spay/neuter/release.

Meet Mister Dog!

Mister Dog is a 2 year old, neutered, Chinese Crested. He's a little guy with very limited life experience and is timid with strangers, but it doesn't last long when he gets to know you.

Right now, he's needy, very like a small child who's not sure of his place in life. Mister likes to ride and he likes to cuddle in a lap. Chinese Crested dogs are loyal and loving, often a one person dog. Clownish and playful, they are enjoyable companions.

With their exposed skin, they do need special care - lotions and winter clothes and no extended time in the sun. People familiar with Chinese Crested dogs describe them as sweet natured with awesome personalities. Because Mister Dog has never been around children, he needs an adult-only home.

We found Mister Dog being cared for by the Ark Animal Shelter in Cherryfield, Maine. Their mission is to provide compassionate care and placement of homeless animals through the shelter operation. To help alleviate overpopulation of companion animals by promoting their spaying/neutering. To promote and improve the welfare of all animals through community outreach and education.

Meet Boris!

Boris is a Labrador/Viszla Mix, about 1-2 years old, and neutered. He is an exuberant, handsome, lover of life, seeking committed humans of his very own.

He has the best traits of the Labrador and Viszla breeds - playfulness, high energy level, and quite capable of entertaining you for hours at a time. Boris can be persistent and strong-willed, but at the same time show you his calm and sweet side. I'm a diamond in the rough at the moment

Boris is housebroken, needs positive obedience, and is unsure of other dogs and cats. He is currently being cared for by Community Animal Rescue Effort (C.A.R.E.) in Evanston, IL.

Meet Tess!

As you can see by Tess' picture, she is one pretty little lady. She is all white except for her brindle patch. She is shy when meeting new people, but will warm up to you once she knows you aren't going to hurt her. She gets along with other dogs, and plays well with them.

Meet Faith!

Faith, a Pit Bull mix, was found sick in a shelter and moved to isolation in an animal hospital until she recovered from kennel cough. She is almost completely potty trained and has learned to use a doggy door to go out on her own. She is polite and will sit to wait for direction. She is getting good with the “stay” command and does well with “leave it”. Her training has come along quickly as she is very eager to please.

Introductions to other people have been very positive and Faith is the first of the dogs in the home to be calm and love the new people. Faith will be a very obedient and loyal companion with good guidance and direction.

She needs exercise to burn off energy and loves to do so with a jog or a brisk obedient walk. Faith plays well with her foster sister who is quite submissive but playful. Otherwise she requires supervision around other dogs, animals, or children and needs to be the only dog in the house. She is not aggressive and has shrugged off situations well, but she does want to dominate the house.

She is true to the Pit Bull breed with jovial excitement, ripped muscles, affectionate loyalty, and snoring naps. Overall, Faith is very friendly and eager to curl up to share affection with her owners and be an integral part of the family.

Faith is currently being cared for by a foster family associated with Sheltie Rescue of Utah. Their goal is to help Shetland Sheepdogs who turn up in shelters, are found lost on the street, are no longer wanted by their owners, or whose owners can no longer care for them.

She is in love with her foster mom and her foster moms dogs. Elaine walks well on a leash and is learning more manners everyday. She just longs for love and attention!

A poem!

~The Meaning of Rescue~

Now that I'm home, bathed, settled and fed, all nicely tucked in my warm new bed. I'd like to open my baggage, lest I forget, there is so much to carry - so much to regret.

Hmmm...Yes, there it is, right on the top, let's unpack loneliness, heartache and loss. And there by my perch hides fear and shame. As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave - I still have to unpack my baggage called pain.

I loved them, the others, the ones who left me, but I wasn't good enough - for they didn't want me. Will you add to my baggage? Will you help me unpack? Or will you just look at my things - and take me right back.

Do you have the time to help me unpack? To help put away my baggage, to never repack? I pray that you do - I'm so tired you see, but I do come with baggage - Will you still want me?

~ Author Unknown ~
