Welcome to Heading Home K9 Rescue!

Did you see a dog that caught your eye? Ready to start the adoption process? Happy to help! Feel free to email the dog's listed contact with any questions you have...the dogs live in our homes with us so we know them very well. Please also download and fill out the preadopt application (Heading Home K9 Rescue Preadopt Application) and email it in to the listed contact for the dog(s) you are interested in. We read through the application, check references, and once approved (we aim for 24-48 hours to approve or deny), we set up a visit with you and the foster home or direct you to an adoption event to meet the dog(s). Fosters are more than happy to answer questions that arise. We all want a good match the first time, and a successful experience for the adopter and the dog.
After meeting, you can choose to outright adopt, or do a foster to adopt, where you complete an extra form and gain a 1-2 week period to see how the dog adjusts, and if the fit between the dog and your home is right. We encourage adopters to give it a MINIMUM of 3 days. Returning a dog before that period means it never had a chance to settle in and show you what the true personality is like. Moving dogs between homes is stressful and not in the dog's best interests. We are here to support you after adoption also, answering questions and helping make the process as positive as we can. We highly recommend you read the tips in this packet (Adopting 101) before bringing your new dog home...it will help greatly ease the transition and make it a positive experience for everyone!

Our adoption fees are non-negotiable and average about $350 which includes their vet work-spay/neuter, vaccinations, heartworm testing (if old enough), and deworming. Often the vet costs far exceed the adoption fee, especially on our special needs dogs. We rely on adoption fees to be able to continue to rescue more dogs in need.

NEXT PET ADOPTION-- Our next pet adoption will be on Sunday October 29th from 12-2 at the Bloomington Chuck and Dons

REMINDER: It is always a good idea to email the contact listed in each dog's bio to find out of s/he will be attending an adoption event before making the drive. Many dogs do not attend the adoption events.

Want to help support the dogs of Heading Home K9 Rescue without ever leaving your house....not even leaving your computer?!--- Check out our Amazon.com wish list here! We have compiled a short list of our favorite and most used supplies like toys, leashes/collars, bones, etc. You can purchase online and it will ship right to us.

HEADING HOME DOGS LOOKING FOR HOMES:




Name: Ashley
Breed: Lab/ Pit Bull Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Hello, my name is Ashley although my foster mom calls me Nola. My name is a work in progress just like me! I have come along way since coming to Minnesota. I came from the south, and although I cannot tell you the story, my people say something bad must have happened to me when I was younger. Why you ask? Well, I am very shy and scared when I meet new people, and I also am scared of loud noises. What does this mean for adopters? Don’t expect this pup to be jumping all over when you come to meet her. Its not that I don’t like you, its just that I don’t trust people all that easily. This pup does not have a mean bone in her body, when she is scared she just runs back to her safe place (her kennel). Once I warm up though, I am a total doll. I am great at giving kisses, snuggling, and sometimes I even get confident enough to play! Boy its fun when I start playing, but I really don’t know what to do with myself.  I like other animals of all shapes and sizes, kitties are fine with me too. I am looking for a quiet home, where there is not too much going on to overwhelm me. I would prefer a home with another confident dog to show me the ropes, and a back yard I can explore in my own time. I am going to take some patience, but I will make a perfect companion to someone that understands my needs and will take it slow with me. I come fully potty trained, I don’t bark much, and ready for my forever home!  Although size does not matter to me, you might want to know I am about 30lbs.

Requirements: Adopter must own home due to breed mix. Fenced yard. Home committed to providing love, stability, training, and patience.

You can email kladams4545@gmail.com with questions and for a preadopt application. This dog has been spayed/neutered, vaccinated as age appropriate, tested for heartworm disease if age appropriate, and dewormed.

Name: Bane`
Breed: Akita
Age: Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Bane is a stunning Akita who defines the Akita breed…loyal, watchful, a dash of a stubborn streak, and incredibly beautiful. Bane’s tough dog exterior (and his big bark!) hides a soft soul who loves his people beyond measure. Once he bonds, you have a best friend for life. Bane is housetrained on a schedule, crates for the workday (though hates the crate and it’s a bit of a fight to get him in there), and minds his manners well in the house. He is a barker when appropriate so is not suitable to a home with shared walls (apartment, townhome, etc). Bane is an active dog who loves his walks and playtime but settles nicely once he is tired out. He is not good with cats or small animals. He is tolerant of other dogs though would be best in a home as an only dog or with a submissive, female who will respect his space. Like most Akitas, Bane has a stubborn, dominant streak and needs an experienced handler who will firmly, yet lovingly set the rules and boundaries for him. He toes the line perfectly once he knows what is expected of him but he needs a handler who can control a powerful, intelligent dog. Please do your research on this breed before considering adopting Bane, Akitas are fabulous companions in the right home but they are not the dog for everyone. Bane is a beautiful representation of his breed in both looks and temperament.

Requirements: No cats. Experienced Home Required.

Name: Banshee
Breed: German Shepherd
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Banshee is a fun-loving, energetic, wickedly smart Shepherd girl with a passion for fetch and a love of water. That's right, there is nothing this girl loves more than racing through the kiddie pools and ponds with a ball in her mouth and a grin on her face. Banshee is working on her manners with other dogs, not good with cats, and good with older kids who can take an active role in her training. She is working on her housetraining, crates for the workday, and learning her house manners. She appears to have been an outside dog before so the house is very new to her but she's learning how to behave. A home without shared walls is ideal as she likes to sing the song of her people (howl and bark) when she is bored or crated. Banshee loves her people, loves to learn, and is picking up training in a flash. She needs some more training and continued work (leash manners especially leave a lot to be desired!), but her mind is sharp an ready for someone to put the time in to working with her. She is a high energy, high drive dog who needs an outlet for that energy. She would be an absolutely outstanding sport dog (flyball, agility, etc) or running partner.

Requirements: No cats

You can email laurahhk9@gmail.com with questions and for a preadopt application. This dog has been spayed/neutered, vaccinated as age appropriate, tested for heartworm disease if age appropriate, and dewormed.

Name: Blitz
Breed: German Shepherd
Age: Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Blitz is a handsome German Shepherd boy with a love of playing with toys. He is happiest with a ball in his mouth and some space to run around and burn his energy off. Blitz found his way into a local impound the result of lack of training and an open fence gate causing him to chase and bite a child in play. Shepherds are herding breeds after all and he was doing what he thought was all in good fun! He needs a home with no kids due to his size, lack of training, and previous bite. Blitz is housetrained, crates well, minds his manners well in the house, and is working on learning his basic commands. He is a very smart boy and it shows in how quickly he picks things up...he learned he needed to drop the tennis ball and sit for it to be thrown again in about 10 minutes. His last owner loved him and cared for him well but skipped the training and shepherds need both love and training to be successful, well-mannered companions. He would do best in a home with shepherd experience, time to train, and the ability to manage his wild side with training and exercise. He does require a physically fenced yard or a home outside the city with acreage he can be trained to stay on. He is not good with cats and would be best placed as an only dog.

Requirements: Experienced Home Required. No cats. Physically fenced yard or acreage

You can email laurahhk9@gmail.com with questions and for a preadopt application. This dog has been spayed/neutered, vaccinated as age appropriate, tested for heartworm disease if age appropriate, and dewormed.

Name: Boogie (Adoption Pending!)
Breed: Boxer Cross
Age: Puppy
Gender: Male
Description: Boogie is an adolescent Boxer mix puppy with a silly, friendly, always-happy personality. He loves people, loves other dogs, fine with cats (though does like to play with them), and loves the kids. He is working on his housetraining and its going very well, crates nicely for the workday, and is learning basic manners. He shows off his smarts every day. He is young still so expect some accidents, some chewing, and expect to do some continued training but Boogie has a sharp mind and an eagerness to please. He would thrive in a home who wanted an active, fun puppy to do things with.

Requirements: No special requirements

Name: Bosco
Breed: German Shepherd/ Rottweiler Cross
Age: Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Bosco is a big, handsome 3-4 year old Rottie/Shepherd mix who is loyal, loving, and quite the goofball. He is happiest following his person around for hours on end, finding some funny mischief to get into, and always is ready for a scratch and some love. Bosco came into rescue with serious hip issues that made it difficult for him to lead a normal life. We expected him to need surgery but as it turned out his issues are too severe even for surgery to correct. He has little to no muscle in his back legs making surgery a poor choice.  Bosco is on lifelong pain management, joint supplements, and injections of Adequan (synthetic joint medication). Now this sounds like a pretty poor quality of life, nope, not for Bosco! He is so happy to be pain free for the first time in a long time that he plays like a puppy, he runs, he fetches, he counter surfs (naughty boy!), and is overjoyed for every minute he gets to spend having fun. We don't know what his life holds long term. He might eventually be a surgery candidate, he might not. He might live a shorter life due to the severity of his injuries or he might live a normal lifespan. We simply cannot predict so he needs an adopter who is willing to commit to whatever his life brings and willing and able to emotionally and financially commit to continuing to manage his pain and hips so he can live pain-free. Bosco is excellent with other dogs, adores people of all ages, and has never met a stranger, only new best friends. He does need a cat-free home. He is housetrained, crates well for the workday, loves to chew on bones and toys. (Photo courtesy of Ciao Bella Photography)

Requirements: Medical special needs. No cats

Name: Bounce
Breed: Pit Bull Cross
Age: Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Did you say car ride?! Yes! Say those magic words and you have a friend for life in Bounce. Okay, let's be real. In her mind any person who opens their car door for her is her bestie in her mind. While she does enjoy a leasurely stroll, her heart is set on driving around town. Bounce is the type of dog that knows when it's okay to be crazy and when it's time to lay down and chew a bone. She minds her manners almost perfectly in the house. She is house trained, crate trained, doesn't chew up anything she's not supposed to, and not a barker unless she really needs to go out. Bounce came into rescue because she was left unsupervised with a toddler and the toddler sustained a nip/scratch. With no other information about the situation, Bounce was blamed and she was no longer wanted. Bounce lives with cats and dogs in her foster home. The cats she became friends with right away, but the dogs took a slower introduction. She grew up as an only dog, so deep down she would love to be an only dog again and not have to share her stuff or her people's attention. That's not to say she hasn't made any canine friends, she's just picky about who she likes (Aren't we all?). Because of the unknown circumstances of the nip on the small child, we are seeking an adult home for her just as a precaution. If you are looking for a snuggly, adorable companion to share your home, your couch, and your adventures, please consider Bounce. She will bring so much happiness to your life..

Requirements: Adopter must own home due to breed mix. No kids. Prefers to be the only dog.

Name: Brewski & Buddy
Breed: Shepherd/ Husky Crosses
Age: Seniors
Gender: Male & Female
Description: Brewski ( with white) and Buddy ( black and tan) are a bonded pair of 10-year-old Shepherd/Husky mixes, seeking new homes after their prior owner was no longer able to care for them. Often we consider splitting up the pairs, but after 10 years together, we'd love for them to stay together. House trained, no chewing, reliable left loose, mild-mannered, and agreeable to other dogs in the home, they absolutely love walks and being a part of things still. They are 42 pounds each right now, mildly underweight. Good with cats, dogs, and kids of all ages, these two are polite and well-mannered dogs who have shown no aggression nor resource guarding. They were well raised and trained, and it shows. They love the one mile walks they get daily, and keep up well. Neither are barkers, although Buddy sometimes tries to tell you something you wish you could understand. Brewski is quicker to open up and let you into her heart, and with a little time, Buddy does as well. They love to hang out outside in the fenced yard on a sunny day, and then come back in and be with their people. They are in good health with no restrictions. Please consider a pair of lovely dogs who need a home.

Requirements: No special requirements

Name: Brutus
Breed: Rottweiler Cross
Age: Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Brutus is a Rottweiler mix, approx 2 yrs, seeking a home with breed experience.

Brutus plays fetch and enjoys walks. He is house broken. He badly wants his own place to call home.

Requirements: No other male dogs. Home with yard space.

Name: Cato
Breed: Shepherd/ Terrier/ Bully Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Cato is an adolescent mixed up mutt pup who wants to shake your paw!  This guy is Mr. Friendly and loves everyone he meets at first snuggle.  He is social, outgoing, happy to be with his people, and is always up for what his people are doing.  Going for a walk, camping, swimming (though he prefers not to be in the water!), or just hanging out snuggling up for a movie and a few stolen pieces of popcorn.  He is a 3-legged pup but we almost forget to even mention that because it doesn't slow him down at all!  He runs, plays, hikes, and jumps just as well as any of his 4-legged friends. Cato is good with dogs, needs a home without cats, and fine with older kids.  He is housetrained, knows his basic manners, and is working on learning more tricks.  He loves to learn and melts with happiness when he is told he's a "good boy".  So why has this amazing dog grown up in the shelter/rescue system?  Cato has significant separation anxiety.  What this means for his adopters is that investing in a super sturdy crate is a necessity as well as a willingness and experience to continue behavioral meds and training.  He would benefit greatly from someone home more often than not or able to break up his crate time with a lunch break let-out or dog walker.  He has made a ton of progress anxiety wise and does so well at his foster home now that we know in a forever home that commits to him and his training needs he will be so successful.  All he needs now is someone to take a chance on an adorable little mutt pup who promises a lifetime of paw shakes and a willingness to follow on any adventure no matter how crazy.

Requirements: Home committed to training and working with the separation anxiety. No cats.

Name: Cher
Breed: Aussie Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Cher is a 2 year old, 65 pound female Australian Shepherd mix who never stops wagging her body... she is joyous, and shares it with you. She likes kids and other dogs, is medium energy, and smart. Previously an outside dog, she is learning the house training and is crated for the workday. Cher loves to be a part of things with you-- loves walks, car rides, playing, going to the kids sport events, and curling up at night with her family. She would appreciate a home willing to invest time daily for exercise and play. She is used to a rural environment, so prefers a house with yard space please.

Requirements: No special requirements

Name: Clark
Breed: Pit Bull/ Shepherd Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Clark is a mixed up mutt whose initial shyness hides an incredibly loyal, loving companion.  He is slow to warm up to people, nervous in new social situations, but when he's in his element at home he is a silly, fun-loving, loyal, snuggle buddy.  Clark has been bounced around a lot in his short life and he needs a home that will show him some stability and build his confidence up.  He is never mean, never nippy, just nervous.  He feeds off a confident owner.  If you are confident about something, he bravely puts on a confident face.  If you are nervous, then he acts more nervous and insecure.  He is tolerant of other dogs but gets a little insecure around really bossy males so best with more submissive males, females of any demeanor, or as an only dog.  He is much more of a people dog than anything.  He is not known with cats.  Given his shy nature he would be best in an older child/adult home.  Clark is well housetrained and reliable left loose for the workday (he prefers being left loose to a crate).  Clark is not a dog who shows well at a first meeting...he clings to his foster family and ignores the new people but for someone willing to take him home, give him a few weeks to adjust, he will be their new best friend.

Requirements: Adopter must own home due to breed mix. Older child/adult home.

Although she is only six, she has profoundly bad hips and knees already, the extent of which we will learn next week. She has a hard time getting to her feet from lying down, but once up, she is ready to go-- this girl loves her walks, and prances so cheerfully along for about a mile. Daisy is something very special. She has this quiet dignity, and such calm affection coming from her. She's good with all people, cats, and dogs. Daisy is house trained, not a chewer or a barker. Her home needs to be one with few stairs-- more than about 4 at a time are hard for her--, able to do joint supplements and anti inflammatories as needed, and respect her wishes to go walking every day. She loves to be near you and napping in the sun.

Name: Dewey
Breed: Pit Bull
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Male
Description: You know those bad Pit Bull stereotypes you have heard? Well, Dewey here puts every one of them to shame with his exceptional personality and sweetness. This boy is set on changing everyone's mind about the big, bad Pit Bull and he's going to do it by kissing and loving on every person he meets. Because that's Dewey. Dewey loves everyone instantly. Dog or person, Dewey thinks whoever he meets is his newest best friend and he's so excited to meet them and start playing and getting cuddles. Speaking of cuddles, Dewey is a champion snuggler. If medals were given out for best snuggler, Dewey would win gold! He loves his walks and playtime and is hoping his forever home will commit to a lot of toys and walks/runs along with the cuddles. He's young still so has energy to burn and a bit of a mischievous streak when he doesn't get his energy out...somehow the kleenex box exploded in the living room while his foster mom was in the shower, Dewey doesn't know what happened but its lucky he was there to keep anything else from spontaneous combustion.:) No cats for this boy please, they're just too much fun to chase.  Dewey is housetrained on a schedule, crates for the workday well, not been a barker, and minds his house manners well. He does require a physically fenced yard due to some "Houdini" moves when tied out. If you're looking for a sweet-as-can-be, energetic buddy to keep you warm on cold nights and active and having fun, consider Dewey. We are all in love with him.

Requirements: Adopter must own home due to breed. No cas. Fenced yard

Name: Fern
Breed: Hound/ Shepherd Cross
Age: Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Hello. I'm Fern. I'm part shepherd and part hound. I am five years old. I LOVE kids, being petted, and hanging around people. I become nervous around other dogs, but do well with cats. I am looking for a family to love me, help me become more socialized, and give me the time I deserve.

Name: Finnick
Breed: German Shepherd
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Finnick is a silly, exhuberant German Shepherd who came into the pound a complete mess…emaciated to the point he couldn’t stand, sick, covered in mange and infection. A few months with some food, TLC, and good vet care and this boy is a different dog both inside and out. Gone is the dog who was too weak to move and here is the puppy who can play for hours and hours on end and makes a fantastic running partner! An active home who wants an active pup to join in their adventures would be perfect for him. Finn is working on his housetraining, crates for the workday well (though can be a bit vocal about his desire to go with you!), and is working on his house manners. Given the neglect he suffer, he likely never got to enjoy being a puppy so is making up for lost time. He is a BIG perpetual puppy! He loves other dogs and would be an excellent canine companion and playmate. He is not good with cats. Finn needs some training, needs to gain some weight and fill out still, but with a little polishing this boy is going to shine.

Requirements: No cats.

Name: Girly
Breed: Cattle Dog/ Corgi Cross
Age: Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Girly is an adult female Cattle Dog/Corgi mix, previously a feral dog whose life consisted of making sure her babies were safe and fed, finding shelter, and finding food. However, deep inside Girly, she wants to be a pet, so she allowed herself to be caught and has spent the past 3 months in foster care gaining confidence and learning how to be a pet. She is learning the house training, crates just fine, and is good with other dogs. She would do best in a home with a fenced yard ( securely fenced) and experience with shy dogs. She's full grown at about 35 pounds, still lap dog sized. We see daily progress and know what an amazing little companion she'll be.

Requirements: Securely fenced yard. Experience with shy dogs

Huff enjoys other dogs but his primary focus are people, he wants someone to be his constant companion. Huff does have a bit of separation anxiety, he gets panicky in the crate yet needs one when alone, so is seeking a home where he can be crated mimimally, and preferably with a companion dog when needed. He is house trained, loves walks, very friendly and outgoing, and loves to cuddle. He prefers calmer and gentle dog friends. He's a really special little dog who just needs to know his people will always come back, and no shared walls so he can work through the separation anxiety when alone.

Requirements: Soneone home more often than not or a companion dog.

Name: Kiko
Breed: Black Lab/ Pit Bull Cross
Age: Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Kiko is a 5 year old Lab mix (perhaps with some bully breed in there. We aren't sure) surrendered to rescue after his barn home closed down and he (and his owners) were left homeless. He has been well loved his whole life and it shows in how social, friendly, and well-adjusted he is. Kiko does have some neurological damage that have resulted in him being mostly blind. He has a small amount of vision out of his right eye that helps him navigate and see large objects. While this to us humans seems like a huge obstacle, to Kiko its just who he is and he navigates his world nicely once he is used to it. Sure there's some running into things and stairs in the dark are a no-go, but even when startled he has been nothing but sweet and gentle. Kiko lives for attention and pets. He would happily let you pet him until your arm fell off and still be begging for 5 more minutes of loving. He is good with other dogs (though prefers them laid back like himself), fine with cats, birds, and livestock. He is working on his housetraining, crates well for the workday, and is learning the house manners after having been a previously outdoor dog. Kiko does require a physically fenced yard for his own safety.

Requirements: Fenced yard.

Description: Lollipop is a sweet shepherd/aussie type mix with manners, good looks, smarts, and a lot of love to share with a forever family. She is housetrained, crates for the workday well in a reinforced/sturdy kennel (she can escape the regular ones), minds her manners well in the house, gets along well with dogs, and is good with older kids. Lollie has one drawback...she's terrified of storms. She does very well when given a prescription anti-anxiety medication shortly before a storm and is given a safe place in the basement in her crate to call her own during stormy weather but needs a home committed to this otherwise she is destructive. Lollie loves to go for walks and would be happiest in a home that would walk her daily.  She is an overall more mellow girl who loves her yard time, hanging out with her people, and comfy dog beds. She is just about the perfect dog and we can't say enough good things about this little love. Lollie is about 5 years old, 50 lbs.

Requirements: Home willing to work with the storm anxiety

Name: Luki (Adoption Pending!)
Breed: Black Lab
Age: Mature Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Luki is a 7 year old female Lab mix with a lot of heart, a curious nature, energy for walks and playtime, a strong hunting drive to keep the yard free of critters, and a sense of humor. This dog makes us laugh all the time. Luki was dumped at a high kill shelter and luckily that grey muzzle was taken in by a foster home. When she got here, we realized she also has cataracts, likely had them since a juvenile, so very used to making her way around with them. She does the steps carefully, sometimes bumps into things, but it sure doesn't slow her down. Luki loves other dogs, is well trained in the house, not a chewer or barker. She would thrive in a home with a fenced in yard for her, and she sure loves toys. Luki does not do well with cats. She transitions hard, so her next home needs a very patient adopter willing to hang in there with her for a couple days of pacing and crying as she adjusts... she really bonds hard, and given a few days will easily change that bond to you. She's worth the couple days wait. 

Requirements: Fenced yard preferred. No cats.

Name: Oakley
Breed: Belgian Malinois
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Oakley is a young adult, Belgian Malinois who has seen a lot in his short life. Quick movements, hands reaching towards him sends him to the ground expecting the worst and belly crawling away to avoid being hurt. Give him a few weeks to settle in, build up trust, and gain some confidence and you have yourself a total puppy of a dog who loves to run, play, fetch, swim, and have a blast. He is the stereotypical super smart, high energy Malinois. He is still extremely nervous outside his comfort zone and with new people so looking for a home who will do some serious confidence building and training to show him that the world is a safe place and new people are not to be feared and who wants a high energy dog to train and have fun with. Oakley is excellent with other large breed dogs and loves to play with them once he knows them. Oakley is working on his housetraining, crates for the workday, and is learning to mind his manners in the house which he does fairly well at as long as his energy is burned out. He would be best in an experienced, adult home who will continue to train and socialize him properly. He does require a physically fenced yard. (Photo courtesy of CiaoBella Photography)

Requirements: Fenced yard.

Name: Paisley
Breed: Anatolian Shepherd/ German Shepherd Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Paisley is a big puppy in both size and in personality! Initially a little wary with new experiences, as her shyness sheds off, out comes a puppy ready for adventure! She loves to run in the yard (fenced), loves to play, and recently discovered just how much fun toys are. Paisley is good with other large dogs and is absolutely in her element wrestling and running around with them. She would love a home with another active dog who can show her the ropes. Paisley seems to have been an outdoor dog before and many things are new to her….being in the house, walking on a leash, meeting people, etc. She needs a home with the patience and experience to continue her training and build her confidence in new situations. She is housetrained on a schedule and crates well for the workday.. If you have the patience and time for continued training and confidence building and are looking for a big, active puppy to join in on your adventures, Paisley is your girl!

Name: Papa
Breed: Border Collie/ German Shepherd Cross
Age: Younng Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Papa is a young adult Border Collie/German Shepherd mix who has been well loved and cared for, and it shows. He is well trained in the house, smart, very comfortable and relaxed with adults, and fun and enjoyable to live with. Papa is seeking a new home as he has not gotten comfortable with sharing his home with children. He did startle and nip when one of the kids was crawling on the floor, so his owners realized he needs an adult only home, one with herding breed experience to know he needs daily walks and playtime, and is very smart. He is fine meeting people and other dogs out and about on walks, polite and friendly, and prefers to be the only dog in an adult home. If you happen to have those qualifications, he's amazing.

Requirements: Home with yard space. Adult-only home. Prefers to be the only dog.

Name: Pepper
Breed: Shar Pei Cross
Age: Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Pepper is a young adult female Shar Pei mix, possibly with Dalmation, and she is 45-50 pounds of solidly built love dog. She takes cuddling to a whole new level, she is really good at it, and has kisses to pass out to every dog and person she meets. Pepper is excellent with kids, wants to play with all dogs. She has not been with cats, and we suspect she'd harass them wanting to play. Her house training is going really well and she crates for the workday. Pepper is very puppyish still, loves toys and playtime, walks and new adventures, and for such a solidly built dog she keeps up very athletically and would be happiest in an active home. She will make you laugh every day and show you how loved you are.

Age: Young Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Pepsi is an energetic, fun wirehair pointer/ Lab cross who was brought into a local vet clinic to be euthanized after her owners accidentally ran her over breaking her jaw.

She needs to eat soft foods or watered down dry food for the next 6 months but her jaw is healing beautifully and shouldn't have any lasting effects. Pepsi is excellent with other dogs and loves to play, great with the kids though young enough that sometimes they get knocked to the ground and licked in love, and is unknown with cats. She is housetrained on a schedule, crates for the workday well, and learning her basic manners. She would thrive in an active home who wants a fun dog to go on adventures with. She has an absolutely outstanding temperament despite all she has been through. She is about 9 months old and close to fully grown at about 50 lbs.

Name: Phantom
Breed: German Shepherd/ Belgian Malinois Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Phantom is a young Shepherd/ Malinois mix with a passion for learning. If you are looking for a dog you can teach a thousand tricks to, who will make you look like an amazing trainer, and who loves to learn and work, Phantom is your boy! He would absolutely excel in a dog sport or trick training and needs something similar to keep him busy. He already knows his basics and is eager to learn more. Typical to his breeds, if he is not kept mentally and physically active he finds his own fun and its never good so he is seeking an active home who wants a dog to do things with beyond the norm. He can be very mouthy and excitable but calms down with a confident handler who will not feed into and allow the over excitability. Phantom is excellent with other large breed dogs and loves to play. He would love a home with another high energy, like-minded companion to pal around and play with. He is not good with cats or small animals. Phantom has an off-switch when tired out and is quite the velcro boy. Cuddles are a runner up favorite to learning and playing. If you are an active home seeking a super smart dog to train and work with, Phantom would love to meet you!

Requirements: No cats. A strong commitment to daily physical and mental exercise. Adult/older child (12+) home.

Name: Pippy
Breed: Shepherd Cross
Age: Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Pippy is an adult female petite Shepherd mix, full grown at about 38 pounds and 20 inches at the shoulder. She is an intense, athletic, working minded dog who would thrive with a job to do. She has a lot of positives. Pippy is house trained and crate trained, preferring a wire crate to a plastic one. She knows some commands ( sit, stay, Potty, stay in the house, and she pauses at the door before exiting) and loves clicker training and the rewards for listening. Pippy enjoys toys and is good at entertaining herself. Pippy is looking for a home with time to continue training and socializing in a safe environment, as she is reactive to other dogs on leash, and although she plays well with some dogs, the play can escalate quickly into rowdiness that she can't control. Her ideal home would have her as the only pet, with a lot of exercise, and continued training. The vet terrifies her, so she is practicing gaining bravery with visits there. Pippy is smart and highly trainable, but also aloof sometimes, and too much touch and praise overstimulates her into needing to run laps/zoomies to balance herself again, or move away from the contact. For someone with experience with dogs and having a job for her, she is going to be a perfect dog. We suggest perhaps trying Nose work with her, a scent tracking activity, which is individual to the dog and requires focus and independent thinking. A kind, patient adopter who can redirect some of the inappropriate behaviors is ideal. She does require a home with yard space and no shared walls ( apartment).

Requirements: Experienced home. Home with yard space.

Name: Pirate
Breed: Husky Malamute Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Pirate is a one-eyed, fluffball of a husky/malamute mix with a true passion for life. This dog loves everything life has to offer…toys, treats, swimming, walks/runs, playing in the yard, other dogs, and then happily curling up on a fluffy dog bed to chill with his people. He is a high-energy dog, typical husky so needs an active home who will tire him out physically and mentally. He loves to learn tricks and commands when there are treats involved otherwise, typical husky, he’s hit or miss depending on what he wants to do. He’s stubborn, silly, and has a naughty streak a mile long that makes his foster family laugh. His cute face saves him from trouble every time though. Pirate is working on his housetraining, crates for the workday but needs a shove to get him in there, and is working on learning how to behave in a house. He is excellent with other dogs, needs a home without cats or small animals, and is best suited to a home with older, respectful kids who will take an active role in his training otherwise he tends to be too bossy and pushy with them. He does require a fenced yard due to his sight limitations. Pirate came into the pound with a dead eyeball caused by severe lens wasting that is likely the result of genetics. His other eye is losing vision though we are slowing the progression of vision loss with daily eyedrops.  There will be a point in the future where he becomes blind.  Now to us that sounds like a terrible fate but to Pirate it doesn't matter if things are getting blurrier and he isn't seeing as well.  He loves everything about life and everything it has to offer him.  He has a perpetual happy smile on his face. 

Requirements: No cats. Fenced yard.

Name: Rex
Breed: Pit Bull/ Shepherd Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Rex is a young male Pit Bull/Shepherd mix who wears his heart on his sleeve. A sweet, gentle boy this guy hands out kisses and cuddles to everyone he comes across. He’s never once met a stranger, only his newest best friends. He sure has a lot going for him…housetrained, smart, knows basic obedience and a few tricks, minds his manners well in the house, and has incredible social skills. Rex is a social butterfly, happy to play with every dog he meets and greet every person. He is excellent with other dogs and loves to play with them. He’s active and playful without being hyper and is happy to relax on the couch after he gets a long walk and some playtime. Rex does have a downside…he has pretty severe separation anxiety. What that means in a home for Rex is that we are looking for someone who is home more often than not, willing to invest in a sturdy, reinforced crate for when they are gone, and someone who is willing to continue the training to minimize the anxiety when they leave. This is a tall order, we know, but Rex is extremely worth it. He has one of the kindest hearts we’ve ever come across in rescue. He is everyone’s best friend. Photo courtesy of Ciao Bella Photography.

Requirements: An adopter who is home home more often than not, willing to invest in an "indestructible" kennel, and will continue training for the separation anxiety.

Breed: Belgian Malinois/ Shepherd Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Ria is a young adult Belgian Malinois mix with a soft nature, a serious side that makes training her a breeze, and an equally energetic, silly side that's always up for some fun!   She makes a fantastic running/walking partner and never turns down the chance to run around and be a goofball in the yard.  She is learning what toys are and is fascinated with them. Ria loves to learn and picks up training in a flash. She thrives on knowing what is expected of her and hearing that she is a "good girl". She is a young girl still at about 1-2 years old so she's got energy to burn but she works hard to remember her manners in the house. She is working on her housetraining and picking it up quickly. She crates for the workday though is an expert Houdini at escaping the typical wire/plastic crates so needs a reinforced crate. Ria is excellent with other dogs but needs a home without cats (they're far too fun to chase!).  She would love an active home who wants a dog to take with on all their adventures.  

Requirements: No cats.

Description: Sam is a senior ( 9 years) Viszla mix dog who needs a new home with not so much kid commotion.

Name: Sarah
Breed: Pointer Cross
Age: Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Sarah, a 3 year old Lab/Pointer mix, is a ready made family dog for kids old enough to want a dog they can include in activities. There's not much she loves more than being invited for a walk with the kids, and since she's a polite girl who does well meeting strangers, she's welcome a lot of places. Now that she is attached to her foster home, she's reliable off leash with them as well. Sarah lives with dogs, cats, and kids, and does very well with all. New visitors who come over are greeted with a joyous whole body wag, and she's easy to fall in love with. We know a change will make her feel shy for a few days as she settles in, but she'll warm up and blossom into the Sarah dog we know and love. She is house trained and crate trained, and besides a fondness for chewing leather leashes, she's very well behaved.

Name: Skye
Breed: Saint Bernard
Age: Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Skye is a beautiful 2 year old female Saint Bernard, excellent with kids and other dogs of all sizes. She is not good with cats and does need a cat free home. She enjoys playing with the other dogs and the kids, and has some energy for a dog her size, so a home with a yard for her is ideal, and someone to go for walks- she even carries her own leash! Skye also loves car rides. Skye is house trained, but will need to learn a new routine in a new place, and needs to be confined when alone. She currently lives with a tiny Maltese and two larger dogs she enjoys. She has had some bad experiences with men, so does need a warm up with new men and seems to have a harder time with men wearing glasses for some reason.

Requirements: No cats. Home with yard space.

Name: Stitch
Breed: Black Lab Cross
Age: Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Stitch is a young Black Lab mix with a passion for fetch!  He is smart and loves to learn...as long as you have a ball in your hand, Stitch will do anything for you. He is housetrained with a schedule, crates for the workday, knows what is appropriate to chew/what isn't, and minds his manners in the house well as long as he gets plenty of exercise. Stitch's biggest hurdle to adoption...he was run over by his owners as a puppy causing a broken hip that's been repaired with FHO surgery but also loss of bladder control. He can only hold his bladder about 4-5 hours max so needs a home with a doggy door, an outdoor setup, or a home willing and able to accommodate his potty needs. Stitch is excellent with other larger dogs, not good with kitties (he thinks they're fun to chase), and better with older kids who can take a role in his training. He would do best in a home who will show him firmly but lovingly that they are the boss otherwise he tries to test the limits a bit (typical teenager!). Stitch wants nothing more than to be loved. He loves to snuggle up on the couch, loves his people, and his favorite place after a nice long game of fetch is right by his foster mom's feet.

Name: Striker
Breed: Pit Bull
Age: Senior
Gender: Male
Description: Striker is a 9 year old male Pit Bull who came to rescue after spending 11 months in animal control, which says a lot about his character... not many dogs can maintain a friendly attitude and their sanity after that long in a kennel, but something about him persevered and during that, he charmed everyone he met. Now in a foster home, he is thriving. He loves blankets, lots of them, and is very mellow and relaxed in his crate but behaves himself equally well when left loose. Striker is house trained. His favorite toys are tennis balls, and he plays a mean game of fetch. He's about 60 lbs and is treat motivated which helps with training. He has not been around cats so would do best in a cat free home, and has done well with canine siblings at his foster home. 

Requirements: Adopter must own home due to breed, no cats

Previously a stray, she was fostered and adopted to a home with parrots she was terrified of, so is back looking for own place again now. She's gentle and nurturing with smaller dogs, and although she can be a little shy in new situations, she warms up quickly and loves to be right by your side.

She would prefer a home with yard space please.

Name: Timber
Breed: German Shepherd
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Timber is a stunning German Shepherd with brains and brawn. This is one big boy! Timber is looking for a home who understands and enjoys shepherds because he is all shepherd in personality. He needs an active home who will tire him out physically and mentally otherwise he gets bored and finds his own games which, while he enjoys, we promise you likely won't. He is smart as a whip and learns things in a flash and would love a home where that brain is put to good use. Timber needs a home who will lovingly and firmly set boundaries and rules for him. When he has a confident handler and he knows what is expected of him, he learns to toe the line but he's the kind of boy where if you give him an inch, he takes a mile. He is housetrained on a schedule, crates for the workday well though is vocal about it, and is working on learning his basic manners and how to be a good canine citizen.  Timber appears to have spent most of his life chained up and because of it has some issues on the leash that require a home very experienced and looking for a project dog to help him work through those issues. He is tolerant of other large breed dogs and not good with cats/small animals.  He does need an adult-only home. 

Requirements: No cats. Experienced home required. Fenced yard or acreage

Name: Titan
Breed: German Shepherd
Age: Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Titan is a handsome German Shepherd who is everything this breed should be...smart, social, loyal, watchful, and very driven. He loves to be trained, to be given something to do, and to be worked with. Titan loves his walks and playtime and being a high energy boy absolutely needs an outlet for his energy. He is tolerant of other dogs with proper, slow introductions but would do best as an only dog as he prefers to be the top dog and does not like to share. No cats, small animals, or birds for him please! He would do best in an adult/older chilen home who will firmly and lovingly set rules and boundaries for him. He loves and needs to know what is expected of him otherwise he tries to 'rule the roost'. He does have some resource guarding over food that is very trainable and manageable but needs a home willing and experienced to work with that. Titan is housetrained, crates well for the workday, minds his manners in the house well as long as he is tired out. He is about 3 years old, 75 lbs but very tall and lanky.

Requirements: Experienced home required. No cats. Fenced yard or acreage

Gender: Males
Description: Valentine ( named for the heart on his side) and Happy Happy the cat are a bonded pair whose loving owner passed away, and her wishes were for her pets to stay together. There is also a small parrot, but the bird has an experienced adopter, so we are trying to place this pair together.

Valentine is paper trained inside and learning the outside house training now. This dynamic duo needs a calm, patient, loving home willing to keep this pair of best friends who have lost their person together. They are healthy, vetted animals. Choosing them earns you a pair of loving companions and the blessings of their late owner who loved them so much.
