Meet Paxton!

Today we're turning it over to Paxton!

My owners never came looking for me so now I'm looking for a new forever home! I am a little shy at first but I come round quickly. I will give you endless kisses and shower you with affection!"

We found Paxton through in Grand Island, Nebraska.

Meet Harmony!

Today we're turning it over to Harmony!

"Hi, I'm Harmony! I'm a sweet girl who was brought to the shelter with my siblings when the previous shelter we were at ran out of room. I was a very sick little girl when I arrived here. I was skinny, malnourished, scared, and very sad because I had never had a family to love me. I actually had to spend three weeks at the vet to receive the medical attention I needed.

Now I'm 100% healthy and ready to finally find a family to call my own!"

We found Harmony through Central Nebraska Humane Society in Grand Island, Nebraska.

Meet Shyloh!

Shyloh is a 5 month old neutered male Shepherd/Lab mix puppy. He is white, with shades of very light tan and cream color. His ears stand up, with the tips folded over.

He is learning so many new things, and gets very excited when praised and cheered. Shyloh is busy, but always has a minute to show affection to his human family members. He loves food rewards for tasks well done, like house training, walking well on leash, come and sit. He seems to enjoy his bath. Shyloh is also working very hard to reduce his mouthing.

Shiloh is crate trained, and is finding his crate is a pretty nice place to eat, sleep, and relax. He is young, but does fuss and whine when he needs to go out. He sleeps all night, quietly in his crate with his blankets, chews, and stuffed animals to keep him company

We found Shyloh through Paws Animal Rescue in Pierre, South Dakota.

Meet Pam!

Pam is a five year old terrier mix. He lived primarily outdoors, so while he isn't house trained yet, we think he could easily be taught.

Pam loves to jump, run, and wag his tail, so you sure won't need two step stools to help him up in the car! This boy always seems happy. We're not sure if Pam gets along well with cats or children, but he does seem to get along well with canine companions.

He is up to date on shots.

We found Pam through Souris Valley Animal Shelter in Minot, North Dakota.

Meet Lady!

Lady is a female Shepherd mix who is about 2 years old. She came in through the City Pound when no one came to claim her.

She is very sweet and is already house trained and spayed! Lady is pretty active though and still young so would benefit from obedience training! She would love a home with a fenced in yard to burn off some of her energy. And we're sure you'll want to get her a nice anniversary diamond ring when you adopter her!

Lady hasn't met a person she doesn't like and is just a social butterfly! Come out and meet this lady!

We found Lady through James River Humane Society in Jamestown, North Dakota.

Meet Freeda!

Freeda and Isaac were abandoned in the country and in danger of being shot. We don't know if they are siblings, cousins, related or just friends.

Freeda was very traumatized by trying to survive and we had to use a live trap to get her. Obviously she has been chased off by people one too many times. This is a smart girl as she kept getting the bait, setting off the trap but not getting caught. Persistence paid off and she is safe.

She is the leader of the two and is a dominant dog so would do best with a confident male dog or as an only dog. She bosses Isaac around and he lets her but other dogs might not approve. Cats are unknown. Free is only 1 1/2 to 2 years old, and looks like GSD and Heeler mix. She is very sweet, smart and friendly and will make someone a wonderful companion. She likes to play in a kiddie pool and is a pretty good fetcher too! You sure want to get her holiday gift baskets on sale, fur sure!

We found Freeda through H.E.A.R.T. in Eldora, Iowa.

Meet Gus!

Happy Gus is a young border collie mix, a light dog with long legs (35 lbs) very sweet and happy boy who just wants to please everyone.

He had a rough life and needs some pampering. Gus would do well in a home with a fenced back yard and plenty of other dogs to play with. He likes car rides and is very quiet and well behaved in the car. He would love to have a family with kids!

Gus is now accustomed to being kenneled during the day, and is crate trained, but he does likes going to doggie daycare best of all. Gus would like a very stable routine and some obedience training, which can be so rewarding with a smart, young, healthy dog like Gus.

He is a dream dog as far as personality goes. He is not needy, if you are busy, he will lay down in his dog bed and watch you instead of being underfoot, he stays off furniture and he is 100% house trained.

We found Gus through Paws Playhouse Rescue in Ames, Iowa.

Meet Digger!

Today we're turning it over to Digger!

"Hi, Im Digger and I want to be your new best friend. I came from a home that said I didn't get along with their other dog (which happened to be my brother, and they had me my whole life), but here I have lots of pack mates (9 in all that I live with right now) and we all get along just fine.

In my last home in the country they had cats and I did chase after them and play with them, but I didnt ever hurt them so if you have kitties and you don't think they would mind me playing with them, I could even go home with you! What I really want is a new family of my own."

We found Digger through Happily Ever After Animal Sanctuary Inc., in Marion, Wisconsin.

Meet Pooch!

Meet Jake!

Jake is a cute little pug/chihuahua mix who has, as we call it in rescue, a bit of a Napoleon complex. He may weigh only 20 pounds, but he thinks that he rules every roost. Perhaps it's the chi in him?

He was recently returned to Homeward Bound because he was being a bit nippy when he was asked to do things he didn't want to do. As a result, we are looking for an adult home for him that sets firm boundaries, but is loving too, as Jake has a lot of love to give.

We found Jake through Homeward Bound Rescue in Monticello, Minnesota.

Meet Lugar!

Lugar has a great personality and a mellow demeanor, and he gets along with other dogs and kids. He's not that found of car rides and needs lots of attention, indestructible toys and a forever home!

Meet Jeffrey!

Jeffrey is about 2-3 years old. He weighs 22#.

He came from South Carolina where an all breed rescue group saved him from a shelter where he was to be euthanized. They discovered he had heartworm and no treatment was available for him. So his rescuers offered to take him here where their vet can still obtain treatment. He will be ready to place soon.

Jeffrey is housebroken. And he requires positive reinforcement training. He is hand shy so we believe he has been harshly treated in the past. Jeffrey mostly ignores other dogs. Jeffrey needs a home willing to work on positive reinforcement training.

We found Jeffrey through Great Lakes Wire Fox Terrier Rescue in Lansing, Michigan.

Meet Jaycee!

Today we're turning it over to Jaycee!

"Hi my name is Jaycee. The people at the shelter thought I might be a boxer/hound mix. I think I look just like a big puggle!

I am about one year old and I can't wait to find my forever home. Every single day in my foster home I am learning about new things and even though I had a rough start I am learning that the world is not such a scary place.

My foster mom says I have such a sweet personality! I get along great with all the other dogs I have met. I am also well mannered and I never try to get on the furniture. Although I used to cower a little when someone tried to touch me I am doing that less and less these days!

I hope if you are reading this you will arrange to meet me because then I know you will see just how special I am! "

We found Jaycee through the Connecticut Underhound Railroad in Bradford, Maine.

Meet Lena!

Today we're turning it over to Lena!

"Hello. My name is Lena and I'm a great young dog looking for a very special home.

I love to play and am a whole lot of fun. I will play ball for hours and hours and want to keep going long after you are ready to quit! I love people and think everyone is great. I don't think that I should live with cats and they kind of look like giant fuzzy tennis balls and I know you don't want me chasing your cat!

I do have some possession issues when it comes to high value items like rawhide and I need to be in a home that either understands that issue and keeps them out of the home or is willing to work with me on it. I also think that I would prefer to be around older children who can also understand that I have some issues

I really am a whole lot of fun and I know that I will be worth a little extra time and effort!!"

We found Lena through the Kennebec Valley Humane Society in Augusta, Maine.

Meet Jaxon!

Today we're turning it over to Jaxon!

"Hi, I'm Jaxon. I am a lovable, playful, and silly dog at 3 years young and approximately 70 pounds. I am guessed to be a mix of maybe golden & collie, maybe golden/collie/lab, but one thing is for sure... I am pure handsome!

I am a bright guy and would be a super student at obedience training. I love to frolic and play and enjoy the company of humans of all ages. I do like to be the top dog in a pack and in fact, would do best as your one and only dog.

I need someone who has time for me, who wants a faithful, loyal companion, and who will give me belly rubs, of course! I hope you'll inquire about me... you won't be disappointed!"

Jaxon is a very good dog, so you won't have to look into cary cleaning services, that's fur sure! We found Jaxon through Golden Huggs Rescue Inc., in Williston, Vermont.

Meet Zoey!

Zoey is a Brittany mix and has the energy and vigor you’d expected from a 3-month-old active puppy.

Zoey was dumped in the parking lot of a shelter near metal buildings in Alabama – most likely they gave her up when she began teething – and made her way to Indiana to her current foster home.

She is being fostered with two, big foster Lab brothers, yet this bundle of energy can give them a run for their money and is not intimidated their size or strength.

We found Zoey through National Brittany Rescue -- New Hampshire in Orford, New Hampshire.

For more information about Zoey, click here!

Meet Rasta!

Rasta is two years old. He's neutered and seems to be a German Shepherd mix that weighs 77 lbs.

Rasta is a handsome guy who loves to play! His favorite toys are squeaky toys and tennis balls! For someone as big as he is, he is gentle when he plays. Rasta already knows how to sit, too.

He was surrendered by my owner who had had him for two weeks because she had too many pets. Prior to that, his owner had him since he was just a puppy. He hopes his new home is forever so he can have some stability in his life.

We found Rasta through Rutland County Humane Society in Pittsford, Vermont.

We found Shrek through Circle Of Hope K-9 Rescue in Cooperstown, New York.

Meet Hunter!

Hunter is one year old and is mostly Black Lab with a little Beagle thrown in. He is friendly and affectionate, loves to be petted and brushed.

He is a very playful boy who likes to keep active. His previous owners brought him to us because they said he was "slow to adjust". But truth is they didn't have the time to give Hunter that he needs to be the great pooch we know he is. Hunter seems most comfortable around women and hesitant around small children. He doesn't care for the company of cats but likes other dogs.

Hunter would thrive in a home that can give him the guidance, love, exercise and care he needs to be a fabulous companion.

We found Hunter through Heart of the Catskills Humane Society in Delhi, New York.

Dobby will stop doing anything to fetch a stick :) She loves to play with dogs that love to play with other dogs and would do best in a home with a male dog her size or larger.

We found Dobby through Cane Corso Rescue in Monroe, New Jersey.
