Meet Maggie!

Miss Maggie is gorgeous and sweet, and is just as pretty on the inside as she is on the outside. She's a true lady, and she is doing great in her foster home.

She is a big girl, at least 100 pounds, but she's not fat and won't need any diet supplements, BOL! We're not sure of her breeding, we were told that she's a Gordon Setter mix, but we see a bit of Rottie in her pretty smile too.

She's a mature dog, and like most dogs her age, she's got wonderful manners and knows how to turn on the charm. She has just a touch of gray on her chin, but she's a beauty. Maggie is calm, housebroken and good with children and other dogs.

We met Maggie through Dog Town Canine Rescue - Recycled Dog Rescue in Carson City, Nevada.

Meet Henry!

This is Henry. His foster Mom tells me him he is the most handsome English Bulldogs she has ever seen. He's 2 years old and up until now has lived his life in crate 24-7 at a puppy mill. Henry loves getting pets and will give you kisses back to show how happy he is, it's the only way I know.

He loves the ladies and especially loves my foster brother, George, a Siamese cat, who gets him up and running in the morning. Henry is microchipped, neutered and up to date on all my shots.

We met Henry through Chicago English Bulldog Rescue in Chicago, Illinois.

Meet Giselle!

Giselle was born 10/15/05 and weighs about 25 lbs. She was released from a puppy mill because the price of puppies is going down and they no longer needed her to continually breed and push out gorgeous babies for the public to purchase at pet stores. Until she came to rescue she was living in a 2' X 2' wire bottomed cage 24/7. Gorgeous Giselle finds humans extremely interesting, but still shies away because the only human contact she's had has been negative.

They are working on her socialization, but this is something you will have to continue for weeks, months, maybe even a year. She adores the other dogs because she understands dogs better than humans. Most of the mill dogs do better with another dog in their new homes because they show them the ropes: where to potty and to not fear the humans. She needs some extra love and effort but it's surely to be worth it. She is a lovely girl that has love to give. She just doesn't know it yet.

We found Giselle currently being cared for by Joyful Rescues in Cuba, New York.

Meet Biscuit!

Biscuit's owners were moving and could not take him with them. They said she was a good girl who knows sit, shake and am already housetrained.

She's a hound dog mix and loves exercising. She would love a family with kids and maybe another dog. Biscuit is really friendly and is still considered a puppy at about 10 months old. She would love to find a forever home.

We found Biscuit currently being cared for by the Humane Society of St. Joseph County in Mishawaka, Indiana.

Meet Boomer!

This is Boomer, a 4 year old neutered Boerboel who is very protective of my folks.

He knows some commands and is on red alert all the time, ready to take care of his folks. The Boerboel breed needs to know who is in charge, and if you don't know who's in charge, then they assume it must be them. Boomer needs to go to someone who is familiar and experienced with the Boerboel breed and who has no small children.

Boomer is a sweet guy, housebroken and needs to put on some weight. In return, he will live to take care of you and will give his life to protect you. If you need someone in your life you can count on without question .... come talk to Boomer and let's make this work.

We found Boomer currently being cared for by Blue Lion Animal Rescue in Yoder, Colorado.

Meet Molly!

Molly is a sweet, shy, 4 year old basset girl who warms up quickly to people and will follow you everywhere. She gets along with other dogs once she gets to know them. She has very good house manners. She's quiet, she's housetrained, and she doesn't chew, but she might try to steal a sock from the laundry when you aren't looking!

Molly needs to be in a home with experienced dog people who understand her need for her own space. She doesn't always want to be petted when she is tired, so a family with just grown ups or older kids will be the perfect forever home for her. Please give Molly the loving home she needs, and she will love you back with kisses galore!

We found Molly currently being cared for by the Mid-Atlantic Basset Hound Rescue. They have evolved from other basset rescues with a strong mission to rescue Basset Hounds in need of new homes, brought into foster homes, given any needed veterinary care (including spay/neuter), and adopted out to new homes.

Meet Shine!

Shine is a very energetic, sweet, loyal, smart smooth Collie.

He requires a very experienced and confident dog owner. Shine is shy and fearful of new people and situations, but warms up and is trusting very quickly. Shine is being fostered with a professional dog trainer who will assist the new owner on how to continue with reinforcing his training and behavior.

He knows all his basic obedience commands (heel, sit, sit stay, down, down stay, come and leave it. He loves to play ball and will return it to you. Shine is very good in the house when supervised, although he needs a yard to play in and get exercise. An adult family, would be best for Shine. We're sure you will want to beef up those hard drives, so you can have loads of room for all the new pics you'll be taking!

We met Shine through Southland Collie Rescue in California.

Meet Blizz!

Blizzy is a 5 month old (as of March 2009) female. She is a border collie/bearded collie mix (we think). She is an owner surrender, and came to us very filthy and very underweight.

After bathing her, we found her to be a fluff ball of a pup. Like all young pups, she is active and curious and into exploring everything. Blizzy absolutely loves the game of tug and will turn any thing in to a tug toy (long hair, another dog's tail, dangling straps, any clothing on the floor).

With the other dogs in the house she is full of confidence and showing a tendency for some diva attitude. She will challenge the older dogs if they have a toy and won't share, barking at them if they won't play with her. However, if there are no other dogs around, Blizzy's personality changes to more of a fearful pup.

So she will need a home where she can continue to learn good things come from humans. Blizzy came to us as an almost feral dog. She is currently learning house rules and is doing well on housebreaking though she is not good at letting you know she needs to go out. She responds well to a gentle no. Blizz is fostered in a loving home near Casper, WY

We found Blizz currently being fostered with the Wyoming Border Collie Rescue in Glenrock, Wyoming.

Meet Vickie!

Its all play and no work for young Vickie! If you want a dog that's all business and serious then Vickie is not for you, but if you want a girl that wants to cuddle and play and maybe break a few rules then here's your girl!

Vickie can ?smile' showing off her pearly white chompers. She loves to chase a ball or wrestle with the boys. She likes rawhides and long walks. Vickie can walk on a leash well and will sit, down and come but not reliably. She is a princess and only cooperates when the mood strikes her!

Vickie is crate trained and has never fouled her crate, even when I had to work late. She is house broken but requires vigilance. If there is a hole in your fence better watch out because Vickie will find it! Vickie loves kids but probably shouldn't be around young children because she can be quite exuberant when racing about. Vickie should probably not be in a home with cats, however her foster mom is working on her with her own cats. She gets along very well with male dogs.

Vickie can be a little mouthy when she gets very excited especially when bolting out of her crate; she gets the zoomi es when she first gets out. After a few minutes she is ready to calm down and hang out. She is about 2 years old, utd on shots, spayed and micro-chipped.

We met Vickie through ABMC Belgian Malinois Rescue serving all of the northeastern US.

Meet Annie!

We'd like to introduce a true "Daddy's Girl", Annie Lucille. Annie is one little corgi girl that knows how to wrap men around her little white paw. Her favorite things include, scritches, a lap in which to happily watch sports with her guy and a pile of toys. "Mom's" are good too, especially at feeding time and when passing out treats or scritches.

Annie is young, estimated around two years of age. She does not play well with others of the four-footed persuasion, so needs to be an only pet (fish would be okay). A fenced yard would be best for her. She is more of a home body, doesn't particularly care for car ride outings, but does enjoy leashed walks about the neighborhood. Just make sure she stays out of the laundry hamper! She would also do better with children age ten and over. Annie is up to date on her vaccinations, microchipped and crate trained.

We met Annie through the rescue group with The Palmetto Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club, Inc. in South Carolina.

Meet Ruca!

Ruca is a 5 year old, neutered Red Tri male, on the small side at 32 lbs. He is good with other dogs, house trained, well behaved, and full of energy. He is looking for an active family, with kids eight years of age and up would be great, but none younger.

You know that Aussies are pretty active pups, so you may want to look at admin job search to make sure they have a job! And put 'em to work, they will like that:)

Ruca is living with a foster family in the San Diego area, through Aussie Rescue in Southern California. They are a group of several different rescue volunteers, some affiliated with a national rescue group, some doing aussie rescue privately.

Meet Coda!

If you're looking for an agility prospect or a running partner, then Coda’s your boy! Coda’s nickname is the Energizer Sheltie! He loves to run and play with his foster "brothers”. He does have a softer side as well and after playing he loves to settle down, with his head in someone’s lap and snooze for the evening with his foster family.

Coda is a Male, 2 years old, 45 lbs, and 19 inches tall. He's busy, active, cute and cuddly; to look at him is to love him. Coda was originally an outdoor dog with a fence and is learning that life in the house is where it’s at! His foster family has been helping to socialize him with new people and new dogs and teach him the manners needed to be a good canine citizen. He needs to be placed with other dogs since, Coda would benefit from having an active playmate.

We met Coda through Minnesota Sheltie Rescue. They providing the best and last home for Shelties in need.

Meet Jax!

Jax is a one year old Border Collie mix, probably mixed with some Spaniel :) He's one and he still looks like a puppy!

He's about 16" tall, and 22 pounds. Jax is fun loving, crazy about people, good with other confident dogs, food motivated, makes super great eye contact. He'd do well with no cats, birds or other little critters in his home. Jax is currently being fostered in Michigan. I think Jax looks like a black and white version of my sis Gracie! She's a little skinnier though and surely doesn't need any of those diet pill reviews!

Jax is being fostered through the great folks at MidAmerica Border Collie Rescue. They are not a facility open to the public. The rescue dogs are fostered at individuals' homes, so appointments must be made in advance and only after the application and approval process has been completed. They rescue Border Collies that are surrendered to shelters, picked up as strays, or relinquished by those who can no longer care for them.

Meet Tucker!

Tucker is a male Terrier mix, possibly mixed with Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen (also known as PBGB). Tucker came to the shelter after his family could no longer keep him, an all too common occurrence in today's world.

Tucker is chocolate in color with amber eyes and a chocolate nose. He also has tan around his face and neck and is what we call a low-rider, meaning he stands close to the ground. He's a bit inquisitive, so be sure and keep him out of the
Stimerex ES! Tucker is a great companion dog, weighing around 30 lbs or so.

He has a face that will melt your heart and all he needs to make his life complete is a family to love!

We found Tucker currently being cared for by Lawrence County Humane Society in Louisa, Kentucky.

Meet Clare!

Clare is a 2 year old Australian Kelpie/Shepherd mix looking for her forever home. Clare's previous owners had too many animals so they dropped her off at a high kill shelter, but it was K9 Lifesavers to the rescue!

A 'majestic' dog, Clare is very sweet, gentle, affectionate, obedient, and very playful. She is also a very loyal dog to human companions, typical of her breed. She loves having her belly scratched and playing with her toys. She loves playing chase around the backyard with her foster brother and makes attempts to play tug-of-war with him. Given her gentle nature, she usually gives in.

She is skiddish of strangers, but she warms up quickly to those with whom she lives and loves snuggling. She's the kind of dog that will greet you with kisses, dancing, and immediately sit so she can be petted and roll over on her back for you to scratch her belly.

Since Clare is shy, it's best if she is in a home with a more confident dog. It will be important for her owners to be patient and work with her while she comes out of her shell and gets used to city life.

We found Clare currently being care for by K-9 Lifesavers in Washington, DC.

Meet Tribble!

Tribble (dob 3/2007) is a 15 pound, Border Collie mix with the softest fur and the sweetest face you will ever see. Tribble is a very happy little girl who loves belly rubs and cuddles. She enjoys lounging in the sun and snuggling on the couch or a soft pillow. She gets along well with other dogs and cats and has never met a person she did not like. She enjoys going visiting and romping in the yard. Tribble was born with a vitamin B12 deficiency, but it was not diagnosed until she was about eight months old.

As a result, her growth was stunted and she has some mental retardation. She also has retinal degeneration and while she does have some vision, she will eventually go blind. Tribble requires weekly injections of vitamin B12; this is very inexpensive and a 100ml bottle will last over two years. She does not like loud noises and startles easily, therefore she should not be in a home with small children or very active dogs. Tribble is fostered near York, PA.

We found Tribble through Pets With Disabilities. They are a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the adoption of dogs and cats with disabilities. The organization serves as a shelter and an adoption placement aid for animals that have been injured through trauma or disabled by illness.

Meet Hendrix!

Hendrix is a wonderful six-month-old, neutered, special-needs German Shorthaired Pointer puppy with spina bifida who was abandoned at four weeks by a back-yard breeder. Hendrix has been making great progress in his foster home. While it is unlikely that he will walk normally, he has learned to stand up to eat, and gets himself around the house very well.

He is gradually making improvements in his bowel and bladder control, but wears a wrap when inside the house. Hendrix has been receiving rehabilitative therapy to help him develop strength and coordination, and walks with the help of a sling. He has completed puppy class, and has learned sit, watch, touch, leave it, take it, and is working on down and other commands. He is crate-trained. When you meet Hendrix, you will fall in love with him.

Despite his physical problems, he is good-natured, very affectionate, full of playful puppy energy, and incredibly intelligent and eager to learn. He loves kids, people, and dogs of all sizes. He will do best in a home with another playful dog. Hendrix is located in San Jose, California.

Meet Merlin!

Merlin is a very sweet, little boy who has had a very rough start. He was rescued in the nick of time by a good Samaritan from being drowned by the husband of a breeder because of the loss of use of his back legs. It appears that Merlin is the victim of a hereditary virus, passed down from his mother, and he cannot use his back legs.

He is currently being treated to prevent the disease from spreading. While it is unlikely that he will ever be able to use his back legs, he is full of life and energy, and loves to play. He is looking for a very special home, with a family that has the time and patience to give him all of the special care he will need. He is a very special boy. Merlin is in Warren, Michigan. So just hope in your rv and go see if he is the pup for you!

Meet Haricot!

Please don't tell Haricot (pronounced air-ee-koh) that she is a special needs dog. She just simply thinks she is special; she has no idea that her lifestyle is a tad different than that of other Frenchies.

Haricot came to French Bulldog Rescue Network after she had an accident which led to a ruptured disk and surgery, and her family could no longer care for her. Haricot's injury left her with a paralyzed back end, but she has shown quite a bit of improvement during her time in foster care.

Possibly with continued rehabilitation exercises, Haricot will walk again. She needs a special home that will help take care of her needs with physical therapy, including swimming and stretching exercises, massage, regular vet visits, possible chiropractic visits and lots of loving.

Meet Stella!

Stella is a 18-month-old, beautiful, fun loving, and incredibly sweet, purebred Treeing Walker Coonhound. She was brought to a veterinary clinic in Mineral Wells, West Virginia as a stray.

When she got to rescue, Stella was extremely underweight and missing her entire left rear paw. Upon consultation with a specialist, it was decided that she would need the entire leg amputated. Following her successful amputation surgery, Stella is doing great on three legs. She is able to run and play just like any other young and active dog.

In fact, the only drawback is not being able to scratch her left ear, maybe you can help her with that. She was spayed and microchipped and is now ready for a permanent home.

Stella would benefit in a home that can give her a lots of attention and exercise. She cannot be left unattended outside as her nose will definitely take her far from home. She will need either a fenced in yard, or someone to walk her on a leash at least twice a day. Stella is currently being crate trained, and she is doing an outstanding job of it. She gets along well with other dogs and children. Stella lives with four cats in her foster home, and aside from wanting to chase them from time to time, does not bother them much. She is heartworm negative and current on all vaccines.
