Nacho Bud male

2007-03-14

Location: Kansas

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Maybe he's "Nacho Bud" (not yo' bud) yet, but he would like to be if you will give him a chance! Little Nacho is 12 pounds and now about 9 years old. He spent his first year or so being used for breeding and receiving questionable treatment. He is timid when he meets someone and he is definitely hand-shy. He will yelp if startled and if approached too quickly he will run away. He will come looking for attention, though, if a person is still and will come when called if not being pursued. Nacho likes to get up and sit on a lap and be petted; although he is a bit tense when he first gets there, he will relax after he is petted for a few minutes. Although he is not aggressive toward children (or people in general), he is likely too timid to do well in a home with active children. He is good with other dogs but doesn't like to play too rough. He can get into a bit of dominant posturing with other males so would be better with female or easy-going male dogs. Or he'd undoubtedly enjoy being an only dog as this would give him more undivided attention to help him get over his insecurity. He is not interested in cats. He uses a dog door reliably and is well behaved in his crate.

Shamrock female

2017-04-23

Location: Oklahoma

Shamrock (aka Shammie) was rescued from a hoarding situation, along with her sister Thistle (recently adopted). They came to their foster home very fearful and traumatized, so Thistle was sent to another foster home, to get individual attention. Over the past months Shammie has worked hard to be a normal puppy. She's worked very hard on housebreaking and crate training, and she has accomplished her goals! Shammie was born on April 7, 2016 - which makes her a bit over a year old. She weighs 12 pounds, and is at a very good weight for her age. Shammie loves playing with her foster-siblings, and even plays with the cat & kitten in her foster home. She has not been around children while in foster-care, but should do well with slightly older kids who know how to treat a dog. To see more of Shammie's pictures please use this link.

Magnolia female

2017-11-04

Location: Florida

Our sweet Magnolia (aka Maggie Magpie) is ready for her next journey in life! She was scooped up from a high kill shelter in Georgia, and she has been charming everyone she meets. Magnolia is the "woo woo" type - she LOVES to talk. She is very cuddly, and simply a dream! Maggie is crate trained and loves to cuddle at night, preferring to sleep with all 4 legs in the air. She is very good with other dogs and she is just fine with kitties, too. Magnolia loves walks, cuddling on the couch, and TV time. She happily suns herself poolside when the family is outdoors. Maggie is between 1 and 2 years old.

Louise female

2017-08-12

Adopted!

CongRATs to the Joy family!

Location: Nebraska

Hi! My name is Louise, but my foster family just calls me LouLou. I am a one year old girl. I am very tall and weigh about 25 pounds. My fostermom told me she thinks I might have Decker bloodlines! I don't know what that means... I just know that I am really cute! I'm pretty smart, too. I know how to sit and stay. I'm crate trained and potty trained. I'm still working on only playing with my own toys though. The people stuff is just so fun! I still kinda consider myself a puppy. I'm learning, though! I like other dogs; it took me a little while to become part of the pack, but I made friends pretty easy. Other dogs tend to intimidate me until I get to know them, but I think I might like to have a friend at my new home. I really love people the most. I can make friends with new people very quickly as long as they are willing to cuddle me! I would be okay with having older children in my family, but I may knock younger children over by accident. And if you have any cats, I love to chase those things! If you think you might be my family, I can't wait to hear from you!
