Dog of the Week: Diamond

Diamond

Diamond is a Terrier/Hound mix looking for her forever home…

Diamond 2Hi, my name is Diamond but I don’t really answer to it. I love lots of attention and like to follow my foster mom around the house. I get along with my foster mom’s dogs but they do not really like to play as much as I would like. I stay in a kennel when my foster mom is not home. I don’t really like the kennel and I have escaped from it a couple of times but I know I need to be kenneled to make sure I don’t get into trouble.

I just had puppies but they are old enough to be on their own now. My foster mom is working with me on not jumping up. I jump on people because I like attention and want to be petted. My foster mom has been nice to let me sleep in her bed and I do well sleeping through the night. My foster mom has to put her shoes away because I tend to mistake them for chew toys. I know how to sit and lay down.

Diamond 4I have a lot of energy and need a home that will provide me with plenty of opportunities for exercise. I do well in a fenced in yard where I can run without leaving my home. I have done well with kids. My foster mom is unsure how I would do around cats. I really want a forever home where I can be loved. I hope to meet my forever home soon.

Dog of the Week: Spencer

Spencer

Spencer 2Spencer is an American Bulldog/American Staffordshire Terrier mix. He’s good with dogs, children, and is house trained. Spencer is a sweet boy who is happy to be in his foster family. He’s about 2 years old. He is very affectionate but needs some training since he doesn’t know how strong he is. Spencer enjoys walks, although he does pull on the leash. He knows the sit command and is learning down and focus. He seems to like other dogs but has not had the opportunity to play with them since the weather has gotten so cold. He can get goofy tossing around his toy when he plays by himself.  Indoor homes only.  You can fill out an application HERE.

Dog of the Week: Ruffles a.k.a. Sadie

Ruffles

Hi, my name is Ruffles but I really respond to the name “Sadie”.  I am 1.5 – 2 yrs. old and weigh 59 lbs. My vet says I need to loose 6-8 lbs. so I’ve been working on that.  I just think I need to get out where I can do some running and exercise to help me burn off some weight and some energy.
Ruffles 2I adore people!  Any kind of people – little and big!  I’m very friendly and have been trying to learn not to jump up on people but I just love them so much!  I can sit but sometimes I forget what that word means.  I have some accidents in the house but if my people remind me to go out I like to do that too!  I have lots of energy and would really like a fenced yard where I can play and run.  I’m very sweet and love my toys and I’m very excited whenever company comes to visit!   I like to play with my doggy friends as well.
I am hoping for a forever home that has young, strong people that will teach me how to lead on a leash and take me for walks.  Of course I’m always hoping for that forever home that will make me their forever pet!

He is working on learning how to stay. He does not bark and is independent when his foster parents aren’t  loving him up. However, he has lost sight in his right eye due to an unknown injury.

Dog of the Week: River

River

River 2Hi! My name is River. Some nice people found me roaming around and gave me food and water. My owners were not able to take me back home, so I am patiently waiting for someone to come along and take me to my forever home! The vet said I am 1 1/2, but I haven’t really been keeping track. I don’t always remember how big I am, but sometimes I just want to snuggle! I am trying to learn how to stay “down”, and I listen really well when I am reminded. I love playing with the other dog I’m living with so my forever home really needs a companion dog for me.   I’d rather not be in a home with things that “meow.”  I am almost entirely house trained.  I must say, I am quite a handsome fella.  My favorite thing to do is look at myself in the mirror!  I love to explore, so I need a home with at least a 6 ft fence.  I love car rides, too! I would do best in a home with children over the age of 10.   I’ve heard people call me a gentle giant, and I guess that’ s a pretty great way to describe me!  I’m really excited to find my new family, so I can love on them forever!”
