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.

Sheba female

2013-09-29

Location: Ohio

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Hi! I'm Sheba, a 7 year old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix. Somehow I found myself stranded in a rural Ohio shelter when my family was no longer able to care for me. That's when I got lucky and Ratbone found me. I'm currently living with my fostermom and her dogs. I'm fine with other dogs, although I was a little frightened of the big dog a first, but I got use to him. My fostermom says I'm the sweetest thing and love everyone. I do think everyone should like me, and I want them to pet me; I'm very friendly. I probably should be in a home with adults or older children - no small, young children, as I'm a little set in my ways. I have this unique personality that when I want something I growl to let you know. I'm not mean at all, just trying to get your attention. Did I mention that I'm housebroken, too? I'm sure if you looked at my pictures you'll notice that I'm a little chunky. My fostermom says I need to lose weight and we have to work on that.... Well, I'm an older girl, and I do enjoy my food! I have a bad habit that my fostermom is trying to stop, but I'm not cooperating... I like to sneak in the bathroom and unroll the toilet paper, and I do eat some of it, but I'm hungry! I like to go for walks, too! So if you're looking for an older, friendly, mostly quiet (OK - I do bark a bit, especially at the dogs next door) girl that just wants to be loved, petted, go for a nice walk and have a soft cushion to lay on (preferably on a couch or chair).... you've found her! Here are some more pictures of me.

Bernie male

2017-08-12

Adopted!

CongRATs to the Walters family!

Location: Florida

Hi there! My name is Bernie, which is short for Burnham; it's been my name since I was a baby. I was dropped off at a shelter because my former Dad didn't want to deal with me anymore, and the people in the shelter tried to comfort me, but I was really sad - and wanted to go back home. Then Maureen tagged my soon-to-be fostermom in a picture, and the rest, as we say, is HISTORY! My fostermom needed a little time before I could come stay with her, so I got to stay with Auntie Maureen and her family for a few weeks. I had a lot of fun there, and man-o-man, jumping in bed at night and burrowing under covers is sooooooo awesome! I hitched a ride down to Miami to where my fostermom and new friends are. The dogs here are really cool and FRIENDLY. Fosterma says I fit right in, because I like to play! I like her kitties, especially the soft fluffy ones; they are pretty chill cats. I got to meet the teenager in the house - he is super tall, and I love it when he picks me up! I am already crate trained, and I've been told I can only have "durable" toys, because (I think) I tear up soft ones (isn't that why they're soft?). I'm 1 year old and weigh only about 10 pounds. Thanks for reading about me. I'm looking for a FUREVER family this time around. I'm a sweet boy, and sensitive, and I just know my happily-ever-after is out there! If you think you would be a good fit for me, please fill out an application to adopt me.

Rusty male

2015-05-25

Location: Idaho

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
This is Rusty. He will turn 8 years old in June (2016). Rusty is a neutered Rat Terrier. He is current on shots. Rusty is a twenty pound Dynamo. He has striking looks, yes, but a remarkable personality too! Rusty is very funny and lively. He has high energy, is an active little guy, and needs mental stimulation and lots of physical activity. Rusty is also a major love bug who not only loves to be held and cuddled, but he frequently asks to be picked up. Of course, like most Rat Terriers, he wants to sleep between the covers and share your bed pillow. Rusty is a clean boy who bathes himself and enjoys tub-baths; we do not know if he likes to swim. He loves to run and needs a chance to dig some holes. Rusty needs land - some property - to be happy. He is a compulsive healer and would make an excellent therapy dog. Rusty would love agility or any other kind of daily training and exercise program; he needs a job or hobby to fulfill his potential. Rusty is vocal and "talks". His vocalizations have given us great delight for nearly 8 years. Rusty is great with people, very friendly, and likes kids too - if they respect him and know how to approach a dog. He did great with the three elderly female dogs that were in his pack, but not so much with adult male dogs. He has been spoiled and he is a dog with a strong, dominant personality. He has been too aggressive with his special needs brother (a very spooky boy) and his elderly brother recently, which has forced his family to find him a new home. Rusty is an excellent housemate; he has never been destructive, and actually still has most of his original toys. He loves to play with toys, do puzzles, find treats, run, be with his people, learn new things and go for walks. Rusty is an extraordinary dog with huge potential. The ideal personal companion! Rusty is NOT good with cats at all, and he needs to be an only dog. If you have space, time and energy to give this boy, he will give you a lifetime of joy and laughter. Rusty is pure delight!

Note: This is a Guardian Assistance Placement (GAP) Program dog, meaning he/she has been fortunate enough to remain in his/her current home while looking for a new home. Veterinary records have been verified, but we must rely on input from the owner for information on behavior and temperament.

Bugsy male

2017-08-12

Location: Florida

Our beautiful baby boys were born on May 10, 2017. Their mama (Betty) came to us pregnant and heartworm positive. Betty is SUCH a good mama, and kept our boys well fed and loved. Betty is 18.5 pounds, so our puppies may be that size or larger when full grown. These babies LOVE to eat!!!! Bugsy was the last born, and is the smallest of the 4 boys; he is a handsome, tri-colored male. Bugsy is very observant, and the type of dog that likes to sit back and watch all the shenanigans going on around him. When he's ready to play, he jumps up in joy. He's very playful and likes to pull on his brothers tails.
