Dogs in Foster

Hi, I am Rocky, and I am about 1 1/2 years old now. I look like a Terrier mix, which means I am very handsome. I came from a less-than-ideal background – I was found, abandoned, in a crate in the woods. I can be shy at first, but I am sweet, for sure! I give lots of kisses and love to cuddle.

I love other dogs and I would like a family with at least one other dog so they can show me the ropes and teach  me to become more confident. My new canine companion will need to love to play, since I love to play, and I have lots and lots of energy!

I am in a foster home and I’m doing great! I really like all the special attention I get there. I love my foster doggie siblings, and I can’t wait to meet my forever ones!  I’m really looking forward to getting a home of my own soon! Come meet me so I can give you my paw! I know lots of commands.

I came from a hoarding situation, and would love to have a patient family teach me that people are kind and loving. I look like a Pomeranian mix, and I’m about 2 years old. I was in a foster home and I bonded with doggie sibling – I like other dogs. I would do best with a calm family that is willing to spend the time to help me to get over my nervousness.

Here’s some wonderful words from my foster home:

“Dale loves exploring the house and now lays down in the living room if we are in there.   When I go out, he has the run of the house, he will greet me at the door with the rest of the dogs. He hasn’t had any accidents. 

He sleeps through the night in his crate with the door opened. He loves being in the yard and follows my dogs around, chases squirrels and loves to run laps.  Dale shows progress every day!”

Hi, I am Stella, a demure young lady at 3 years of age. I was rescued from some pretty dire straits. I am so happy to be here, safe now and learning how much fun it is to be a dog. I love all the staff and volunteers who are helping me on my journey to my first home ever.  Everyone says how gentle and sweet I am and how I will melt your heart as soon as I meet you. I am as cute as a button and do look like a terrier mix.

I am pretty good at playing fetch with balls and Frisbees, and I like all kinds of other doggie activities. But I am still getting used to car rides though and sometimes I get a little motion sickness.  So for now, I think going for a nice, leisurely walks are just my speed, taking time to smell the roses along the way.
I have wonderful manners and on my visits with my volunteer friends, they reported that I have been a perfect and delightful guest in their home. I love snoozing on the couch with my head on their lap.  

I am not sure of all that life brings so I may need your guidance to become comfortable with things I do not know yet. But I can promise you that I will always be your best friend, right by your side. I cannot wait to meet you so that we can discover and enjoy life together.
I am in a foster home, having a great time, but I would like a family to call my own. Call first if you’re interested in meeting me!
Here are some wonderful words from my foster home:
“Stella is very well behaved in the house. After eating she may engage with one of her toys before settling in her bed. Later in the morning we are outside again for more walking around the neighborhood and exploring in the backyard (Stella especially likes walking on the deck).  Kong time is Stella’s favorite time of day.  She pounces on it, bats it, and devours its treats while scampering around her room, tail wagging the entire time. After this exertion, she typically naps. With the notable exception of the Kong, Stella is very low key when offered a treat; as often as not she will decline a biscuit or gently take it and not eat it for several hours or longer. Stella is very curious about the outside world, wanting to check out what is possibly hiding in/behind every shrub, bush, and thicket.”

Carley is a sweet but timid girl who is a complete love once she gets to know you.  She was adopted from us as a puppy but returned 2 years later since she was not getting along with her canine sibling.  She can be shy when  meeting new people but once she makes friends with you, she will be your friend until the end.

Carley’s previous family reported that she is housetrained and very lovable when she is comfortable in her settings.  This beautiful girl is just over 2 years of age and looks like a Lab mix.  She does need to be the only dog in the home but don’t worry, she doesn’t mind being the center of all of your attention.  She enjoys long walks and playing with tennis balls.  Won’t you come meet this sweet and special girl?
