Meet Frosty!

Frosty is not yet 2 years old. She got out of her back yard and was hit by a car. Her owners didn't want to pay to have her pelvis and leg repaired, so she became a CHAAMP dog.

She is a lively girl even now while healing from her surgery! She will need an active family. She loves to snuggle and gets along very well with children.

We found Frosty currently being cared for by the great folks at Chesapeake Area Alaskan Malamute Protection. Their mission is to rescue Alaskan Malamutes in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and DC. They rescue from dog pounds and other bad situations, get the dogs healthy, and find new, loving homes for them.

Meet Tarzan!

Tarzan is such a wonderful, funny little guy. He looks like a miniature brown shepherd. He is not going to be a big dog - maybe only about 30 pounds or so. He is very social, outgoing and happy.

Tarzan and his litter mates were rescued off of Hwy. 6 in the Hempstead, Texas area. They had been dumped on the side of the road. They were only about 5 weeks old. Now Tarzan is about 6 - 7 months old.

Yes, he does think he is a big shot and he is a bit spoiled. He wants to be into everybody else's business - cause he's the man! He plays very well with other dogs and cats and loves people. We can't say enough about this plain, little brown dog.

Tarzan is currently being cared for by the nice folks at Country Paws Rescue and Adoption Shelter in Hempstead, Texas. The rescue abandoned, dumped, abused, neglected, handicapped, sick and otherwise unwanted animals.

The need in Waller County is great as there are no city or county facilities and nothing planned in the near future. Animals are dumped and abandoned at an exceedingly high rate and have nowhere to go.

Country Paws Rescue is a 501(c)(3), non-profit rescue shelter and adoption facility. They currently house and care for approximately 300 unwanted animals.

Meet Tobey!

Tobey is an 8-year-old, red-gold, neutered male. He loves being with people and has a seemingly unlimited capacity for being petted. Tobey loves attention and recently graduated from a beginning obedience course.

He gets along with other dogs, although he prefers to be the top dog. He loves his foster's neighbors’ kids, but since he was a stray and his background is unknown, it may be best if he is not placed in a home with small children. Tobey absolutely loves riding in the car and swimming, too.

We found Tobey currently being cared for by GRREAT. They are a non-profit, all volunteer staffed organization active in the Baltimore and Washington D.C. metropolitan areas. Their primary goal is to find qualified new homes for unwanted, stray or abandoned Golden Retrievers.

Max is a very good boy that loves to take walks with his caretakers. He is a laid back fellow who enjoys stretching out on the grass on a sunny afternoon. Max is currently taking applications for his new Forever Family.

Madison was born in April, 2007. She is a healthy, happy-go-lucky, energetic puppy who is ready to go to her forever home. Madison is a very sweet, get along girl who loves attention.

We found Madison currently being cared for by Jazzin Around Rescue in the mid-Tennessee area. Jazzin Around Rescue's mission is to provide temporary shelter, food, medical attention and comfort to neglected and abused animals; restore lost dogs to their owners or seek new homes for them; and to educate the public about the humane care of animals.

Meet Sofia Loren!

Oh, la, la!!! Sofia is a beautiful pure breed Mastiif. She was rescued from the county shelter where she had been given up because she was not getting along with the other dog in the home.

She is very large and strong and only about 10 months old. She is new to the shelter and they will have more info soon. But, for now they say she is just the sweetest girl ever and her eyes will melt your heart! Breed experience is preferred.

We found Sofia currently being cared for by the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge. RBARI is Bergen County's only non-profit, "no-kill" shelter. Located in Northern New Jersey. RBARI is dedicated to the welfare of companion animals in our community. We protect the abandoned, abused, and unwanted animals in our care by finding them kind and loving homes.

Meet Recco!

Recco is an Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler mix that's good with other dogs and very sweet. He is altered, housebroken; he's located at the Dog Pound in Athens, Alabama.

For more information about Recco, click here!

We found Recco on a new site called Dogs in Danger. DogsInDanger.com is a nonprofit national shelter outreach program at the forefront of a grassroots movement trying to help shelters save the lives of millions of innocent dogs.

More info from their website:

"DogsInDanger.com believes in the power of compassion, and that Americans would do more to help and adopt shelter dogs, if only they knew how many dogs shelters were forced to euthanize. We also believe that shelters don’t really want to euthanize dogs, if they had any other option. Simply put, we have chosen a path of technology as a means of connecting these scared, abandoned shelter dogs with the loving homes they deserve. As a nonprofit organization, we seek no other gain except for the happiness we see in the face of a dog as he faithfully walks out through the shelter doors, in perfect step with his loving new family.

It may be uncomfortable for some to see lists of names and photos of dogs scheduled to be euthanized, but, the truth is uncomfortable. By making it personal, we believe more people will be compelled to help these dogs. Thus dogsindanger.com refuses to present a sanitized version of the truth. Our ultimate goal is to see a day where healthy and treatable animals are no longer killed by their most trusted friends."

Meet Fudgie!

Fudgie is a 1 year old long haired Dachshund Chihuahua mix, whose former owners couldn't afford to keep him. There is little hope that he will be reunited with them. Fudgie is somewhat shy with new people, but with a little time, love and affection, he could easily settle in to a new environment!

We found Fudgie currently being cared for by the West End Shelter for Animals. They are a non-profit, no kill center for pet placement and adoption located in Ontario, California. Last year they found homes for more than 800 pets. Through referrals, our internet website, and other outreach programs, they have had great success finding new homes for pets all over Southern California.

Meet Sass!

Full of fun and energy, this young female has been a joy to her foster family. Sass, a 50 lbs, one year old Border Collie is eager for any experience, at any time.

She is great with people, big and small, always greeting them with a smile and a sincere wagging tail. Sass loves other dogs and is ready to play at a moments notice. When going to the dog park, you can count on Sass to make friends with everyone in less than five minutes.

She loves to run and chase and has ball drive, fetching tennis balls only when all of the other dogs are put to bed as she is easily distracted because of her young age. Sass has been tested on sheep and does possess herd drive but isn't serious about it as that day was just a fun afternoon for her. She does have fairly good recall and shows promise of being easily trained.

We met Sass currently being cared for through a foster home associated with Carolina Border Collie Rescue, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Meet Bozo!

When Bozo first arrived in foster care he was very afraid of strangers and did not want to come out of his dog house. But after a few days, he decided that is was okay and now he can't wait to go to the exercise pen and play and run and get his petting and attention.

Bozo will be a year old in November and he is now one of the friendliest and most loving dogs you will ever meet. This is the type of dog that is one of the best for a family - he is a boxer mix and not too large, weighing about 55 pounds. And he is a very happy dog now.

He is learning to play and will chase a ball or toy and will sometimes even bring it back to you! Bozo is neutered and has had his shots, so he is ready for a good home with kids and lots of activity. He is also housebroken, and will not mess in his kennel. Great dog for a family, and he is one of the favorites in foster care.

Bozo is currently being cared for through a foster family associated with Angels for Animals in Southwest Utah. They are a small group of volunteers who rescue, foster and find homes for adoptable animals.

Meet Tennyson!

How can anyone resist that face? Tennyson the Boston Terrier is a pack of dynamo, strutting his self-importance. All macho. But don't let him fool you. This is all a facade for a big lover! He is such an affectionate little fellow. He wants a human companion to love. He is not very good at sharing that person with other dogs and certainly not with cats.

Tennyson is such a charmer! You will fall in love with him when you meet him. We met him through Dog & Kitty City, operated by the Humane Society of Dallas County. Their purpose is to provide a safe and healthy environment for the indigent, abused and neglected animals of Dallas. Their shelter provides a service in educating the Dallas community on responsible pet ownership. They have operated for over 30 years and is the only no kill animal shelter in the city.

As a 501.c3 non profit organization they do not receive any tax support, and rely solely on private donations. Their service to the animals depends completely on the generosity of the community and on committed, dedicated volunteers.

Fun stuff - unforgettable animal actors!

There are many, many TV and movie animal actors who have entertained us over the years - cats, dogs, wild animals, birds, and more. All types of animals have been on the big (and little) screen and either tugged at our hearts, made us laugh, or made a lasting impression for one reason or another.

The cool folks at PetsitUSA started this Link Love Project so we could make a list of some of our favorites! Let’s see how many unforgettable animal actors we can name!

————— Copy and paste this line and below ——————

List your favorite animal actor and let’s share some link love in the process!

Here’s what to do:

1.) Copy and paste the matrix of “Unforgettable Animal Actors” below, courtesy of PetsitUSA.com!

2.) Substitute the Host Tag and one of the “Animal Actors” in the matrix with the name of your favorite animal actor and the URL of your blog, just like I did.

3.) When you get a ping back from someone that has your link in one of their “Animal Actors”, practice good paw by copying his/her Host Tag’s anchor text (automatically the associated link will also be copied) and paste it over one of your “Animal Actors” below.

5.) Encourage and invite your readers to do the same and soon we will have a list of unforgettable animal actors!

Host Tag: Benji (he was a rescue!)- RescueMe

1. Mr. Ed - PetsitUSA.com
2. Buddy (from Air Bud) - JohannTheDog
3. Benji (he was a rescue!)- RescueMe
4. Flipper - PawsibleMarketing
5. Pete (from the Little Rascals) - Fuzzy Logic
6. Enzo (from My Dog Skip) - Raise A Green Dog!

Important: Once I get a ping back from you, I will add your anchor text and the associated link you designate as “Host Tag” here, and add your favorite animal actor to the list here. As more and more doggie bloggers copy and paste this matrix, the more backlinks you will have with your anchor text. If everybody who copies and pastes from your blog does the same, pretty soon this will spread and go viral. (And we don’t have to stop at 20!) So, the sooner you participate, the more links with anchor text you will receive.

There it is folks. This should help you improve your Technorati ranking, SERP and Google PR and get you noticed with more blogs - we all like making friends, right? Please leave a comment here if you have copied from this matrix so that I can add you just in case your ping-back didn’t reach me.

Baxter is a two year old mail Golden, about 70-90 pounds. He's good with other dogs and children, cats are unknown at this time.

He has settled in wonderfully at his foster home. He loves playing with the other two dogs. He paws, head butts and talks to get attention, which is quite frequent. He is learning that only sitting nicely gets rewarded. He's somewhat tentative having his collar and leash on, but he is progressing. He's enjoying his morning runs/hikes and has been in heaven with all the water...will play, lay, roll, but not swim in it. He loves fetching balls, and always has to have two, not one, in his mouth.

Meet Benji!

Benji is a Yorkshire Terrier (Yorkie) about 11 years old. He's good with dogs and cats, but should be placed in a home without kids.

He was found wandering the streets and a nice lady took him to a shelter. He is very happy to be in a nice house with food and water. Benji loves to give kisses and snuggle real close. If he is not in your lap then he is on the floor, but watch out as he will jump in your lap for petting. His foster mom has a lot of cats which he has little interest in, he just sniffs them and walks away. He likes to follow his foster mom around the house, then find a place nearby to go to sleep.

Benji is curently being cared for by a foster home associated with Indiana Petite Paws Rescue Angels.

Meet Abby!

Abby lived her first seven years in a loving home, with four children and a male dog. When her owners got a divorce, her world was split in half; the two dogs stayed with the husband, and the children went with the wife.

Abby had loved “her kids” and missed them, but she still had her canine buddy. The new arrangement was short-lived, however, because there was a bad fire in the home. Abby’s owner couldn’t live there any longer, and he turned to a friend, who owned Abby’s sister/littermate, and asked him to take Abby. This arrangement didn’t work out, because the sister was jealous and kept attacking Abby. The new owner was worried about her safety and tried keeping Abby in a crate, which she hated; she kept breaking out in order to be near him. So as a last resort he turned to GSRNE and asked that we find Abby a real home of her own.

Abby likes walks, attention and affection, hearing your voice, food of all kinds, water coming from the hose, fetching and chewing sticks, being given directions and a job. She dislikes squirrels and birds (and now they know that includes cats), going to the vet, being left all alone, being in the crate when alone, thunderstorms, fireworks, or anything that sounds like either.

Everyone who has met Abby agrees that she’ll be standoffish at first; but once she gets to know you, she can be an incredibly sweet girl who LOVES affection. She might use her nose or her paw to demand attention, but she’ll stop if you ignore the behavior for a second or two. Once she gives you her heart, she just wants to be near you as much as possible.

Abby is currently being cared for by foster parents associated with German Shepherd Rescue of New England.

Meet Dancer!

Dancer is a black and tan male Cockapoo who weighs about 15 pounds. Super cute, he is a great lap dog who really love attention and affection. Just looking at him makes you smile.

While he is very lively and not very old, Dancer does grumble a lot under his breath like a cranky old man. He needs to go into a home with an experienced dog own (one who doesn’t mind being grumbled at) and no children. Dancer is not in a shelter; he’s currently with a rescuer in the Sacramento area.

Dancer is listed through Fetch 11 Humane Society Inc. They are a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization, initiated in 2004 and incorporated in 2005. Although they will take in almost any dog that meets their requirements, they specialize in taking in unwanted pregnant dogs (seeing them through their pregnancy, and finding homes for them and their pups), puppies (8 weeks old and under), orphan pups (bottle babies), and stress-aggressive Chihuahuas. Special needs dogs and dogs that come from extreme situations also rank high with us for placement. The agency is a no-kill shelter.

Meet Simon!

Simon is a very friendly, 7 year old male, Bishon who loves to sleep on the couch. He was rescued from animal control where no one wanted him because he is blind.

He can get around the house as long as nothing is moved, and he can find the door to go out. Simon is crate trained and walks well on a leash. He likes other dogs, but not near his face. He is looking for a forever home with someone who will pamper him.

Simon is currently being cared for by The K-9 New Life Center, an all breed dog rescue located in Virginia Beach, Virginia. They are 501 (C), non profit organization dedicated to providing a quality of life for the dogs. If they are injured, ill, or undernourished, they nurse them back to health.

Meet Riley!

Riley is a 6 year old, male, Beagle who is up to date with all his vetting and neutered. He likes to take daily walks around the neighborhood and enjoys a more peaceful home.

Riley would make a great companion who can fill that empty spot you may have in your life. Riley gets along with other animals in his foster home but would love to find that special home all his own. He would do better in a home then apartment because he does have the hound bark.

Riley is currently being cared for by the Highway of Hope Animal Sanctuary in Baraboo, Wisconsin.

Meet Sparky!

Sparky was a stray, who had terrible mange. With treatment, his skin is now free of mites, but his adopters returned him because he does not like their other dog, and needs more training than they can provide.

Sparky is 2- 4 years old and is neutered, and is in need of a home where his owners will learn to train him to have good manners. He cannot be placed with other dogs, children or cats, and a fenced-in yard with adopters with breed experience will be given preference. Sparky likes to play fetch, so you had better be as tireless as he is!!

Currently, Sparky is being cared for by a foster home through the Bull Terrier Club of New England.

Our mascot - Ernie - still needs a home!

Ernie, the cute pup featured in our logo is still looking for a home!

Is he cute, or what? Ernie, a young Straffordshire Bull Terrier, is a sweet boy who loves to cuddle! His foster mom says he has quite the delightful personality. He's happy, but not hyper, and gets along great with non-alpha dogs and cats too!

He would do best in a home without small children. Like many big dogs, he may bump a little kiddo over without meaning to. He will need a fenced yard.

Ernie loves to go for walks, and walks well on a leash - even on the busy Monon Trail! He's crate trained and housebroken. He sleeps in his crate at night, but can be left alone without being crated during the day. Ernie likes the two cats that live with him. When the cats hiss, he gets scared and jumps in his foster mom’s lap!

Ernie is being cared for by a foster family associated with the Southside Animal Shelter (that's my shelter) in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Click here for more information about Ernie!

Meet Gilligan!

Gilligan is a two year old, lemon and white, male English Pointer. He was turned over to a shelter in Texas by his original owner because he would not hunt. It was stated Gilligan is "too nice to hunt".

An owner surrender into a high kill shelter is usually very bad news for a dog. But not for Gilligan! A wonderful lady saw Gilligan and was dedicated to getting him a second chance. He was pulled from the shelter and brought to OnPoint Rescue at a chance for him to find a home with a family that understands Pointers are more than just "hunting dogs".

Mr. Gilligan is beginning to settle in to his new foster home. He is one of the sweetest, most gentle Pointers. Gilligan came to his foster home very scared and uncertain of every noise and movement. He has made great adjustments in just the two weeks, but still has a journey ahead of him.

Gilligan needs a patient family that is willing to be patient with him and allow him to earn their trust. He may not have the confidence, but he has endless amounts of love that he is longing to share. Gilligan is crate trained and housebroken. He is current on vaccines, neutered, micro-chipped and on heartworm preventative.

We found Gilligan currently being cared for by OnPoint Rescue. They are a volunteer rescue group based in St. Louis, Missouri. They primarily rescue English Pointers and German Shorthaired Pointers from shelters and find them permanent homes. All of their dogs are cared for by foster homes.

Meet Lily!

Lily (born in 2002) is a sad bi-product of a nasty divorce. For four years, the girl lived protected from the "outside world"...she never went to the beach, dog park or to visit relatives. Beyond going to vet when needed, she enjoyed cuddling on sofa with the family and backyard play time.

Sweet, pretty Lily is healthy, housebroken, playful, great with people and other Labs (either sex) but shy with everything "new". It takes a little time for her to relax and display the adorable Labrador temperament and love of life, living to please her human. Lily can't go to "the city" but will do well in a suburban environment, enjoying yard play and relaxing leash walks around the neighborhood, beach and park.

Lily is currently being cared for by Long Island Labrador Retriever Rescue in New York. They are a 501(c)3 nonprofit, tax-exempt, charitable organization that helps labs find new homes.
