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 November 26th 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.

HEADING HOME DOGS LOOKING FOR HOMES:





Name: Ashley
Breed: Lab/ Boston Terrier Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Female
Description: High alert there are squirrels around in Minnesota, and if you want a squirrel free yard (by a diligent watcher and chaser), I am your gal. While I do love a good game of chase with these yard creatures, my other favorite things are walks, snuggling up with my people, playing or laying with my foster sister, or laying in bed with my foster mom. See, to understand me, a nice sweet southern girl, you need to hear my back story. I hail from Alabama, and have been with Heading Home K9 over 1 year now. I did belong to someone in Alabama, but they surrendered me and the 4 other outdoor dogs I lived with to a shelter, because they had no time for me and didn't want me anymore. I don't quite understand this because my foster mom says I am the sweetest peanut ever, but c'est la vie I am enjoying this new life as a house dog. What I can tell you is that because nobody ever spent time with me, I am very shy with new people. My foster dog sister is very outgoing with new people and this helps me open up quicker and feel more confident in new situations, but it still takes me some time. Once you break through my shy exterior, I am a goofy and very sweet girl. Sometimes I even get so excited I will play with my foster sister or mom and thats really fun. My foster sister just taught me that bones can be really fun to chew on and when she is chewing on one, I usually grab one and curl up next to her to chew too. As a house guest, I am as perfect as they come. I do well in my crate, although I am fully potty trained and don't need the crate. I am quite, unless the squirrels invade my yard sometimes i will give a little whimper to let my mom know about these intruders. My foster mom lets me sleep in bed with her, and I am a champion cuddle buddy.  What you need to know about me is that when you first meet me, I am going to be very shy. In a new environment it is going to take me 24-48 hours for me to warm up to you, and I will spend a lot of this time in my crate as it is my safe place. I also need a home preferably with a fenced yard so I can further my quest for a squirrel free place, and another well socialized/happy dog to continue bringing me out of my shell. Although I think small humans would be fantastic, they can make loud noises and unpredictable movements that would scare me. If you do commit to me, I can promise lots of snuggles, and kisses and that I will try my best to be your forever buddy!  I am about 30-35#, young adult and we think a mix of a Boston Terrier/Lab or some other small and medium size dog as I am very petite, but have a 1/2 length tail naturally and one ear that sticks up adorably.

Requirements: 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.

Breed: Lab/Shepherd Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Bailey is a young adult male Lab/Shepherd mix, raised with kids, cats, and another dog, seeking a new home after his owners had to move and couldn't bring him along. He is house trained, crate trained, and a social and well adjusted dog who is seeking another family to include him in their lives. He's about 45 pounds, loves walks and car rides, does well being out and about, and politely enjoys meeting new people. Bailey is available to adopt November 26th.

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: Belle
Breed: German Shepherd/ Aussie Cross
Age: Senior
Gender: Female
Description: Belle is a senior German Shepherd/Australian Shepherd mix, healthy and fit, just older. This sweet dog came to rescue when her owner became homeless, and with her manners, her well adjusted personality, and the wisdom she has, it's apparent she was loved. Belle is house trained, not a chewer, and excellent with kids, cats and dogs. She came from a home with acreage and would love to have space to move freely about again. For now, she's making due with daily walks that she very much loves. Belle went through 4H training with a child and won the blue ribbon. There's nothing this dog won't do, if you ask her to-- she's a people pleaser, and it's second nature to her to make you happy. Belle is about 50 pounds. She's going to make some person or family very happy they chose her for the remainder of her life.

Requirements: No special requirements

Name: Bessie
Breed: Yellow Lab Cross
Age: Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Bessie is a sweetheart of a Lab girl who has all the traits that Lab lovers adore...melting brown eyes, soft coat, loyal best friend personality. That's Bessie! She is just all around a good-natured, sweet dog who adores everyone she meets. Kids, cats, other dogs....nothing fazes her. She is housetrained on a schedule, crates nicely for the workday, and minds her manners in the house well. She is working on losing a few pounds (aren't we all!), but she loves her walks and gets so excited to see the leash come out. She is about 3-4 years old, 60 lbs fully grown. Bessie is heartworm positive and being treated before adoption.

Requirements: No special requirements

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.

This HHK9 canine has tested positive for a heartworm or tick borne disease and treatment will be done through our vet before an adoption is finalized, so that we can do our part to ensure a healthy happy dog joins your home. Heartworm treatment consists of a 2 day treatment at the vet followed by 4 weeks of restricted activity, and placement timing is on an individual case by case at the comfort level of the foster and adopter. Tick diseases are treated through oral antibiotics sent home with an adopter by the rescue.

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: 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: Buddy
Breed: Black Lab Cross
Age: Senior
Gender: Male
Description: Buddy is a senior ( 8 years) Lab mix, smaller and shorter than a purebred Lab, seeking a calmer adult home he can join. That being said, he sure enjoys the company of other dogs, loves to gently play with the other old Lab at his foster home. He is reliably house trained, crate trained, not a barker, and listens when asked to do something. He is okay with visiting kids, but prefers to live with adults, and doesn't enjoy a home with a lot of people coming and going often. Buddy loves walks and toys and bones. He'd do perfectly keeping company another old dog who wants a buddy, or a person wanting a mellow middle aged Lab. Buddy is fine with cats. He has been treated for heartworm.

Requirements: No special requirements

Name: Bugs Buddy
Breed: Yellow Lab Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Bugs Buddy is a 1 year old Lab mix, a very outgoing dog who would be thrilled to death to find a home with another playful dog. He absolutely loves people, but he is in his element playing chase and wrestling outside in the yard with other dogs. Bugs Buddy makes friends very easily with other dogs, and sure loves kids as well. Previously an outside dog, he is picking up the house training and is crated when left alone. He is smart, needs more training time but responds well, and would do best in a home with yard space or land and another dog to play with. His ideal adopter would also believe in obedience training and the benefits of it for a smart, high energy, outgoing dog.

Requirements: No special requirements

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: Chopper
Breed: Shepherd/ Lab Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Chopper is a 10 month old, 35 pound male Shepherd/Lab/? mix. This guy fits in anywhere. He's playful without being too hyper, loves kids, cats and other dogs, and is already house and crate trained. He's a well adjusted and social dog you can bring anywhere.

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.

Name: Cotton
Breed: Chihuahua/Terrier Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Cotton is a 12 pound Chihuahua/Terrier mix, a very sweet, quiet, humble little dog who was captured after living in the woods alone for several months. She is a little shy by nature, but can't resist a lap or a pair of arms open to her. Sunbathing in the windows, curling up on laps, being petted and held, and going for short walks ( she is adjusting to the cold) are favorites. She is doing well with house training and is left in a gated room when alone. Since she is used to a calmer, predictable adult home, that's what we are hoping for her. She's excellent with other pets. If you have a quiet, calm home and someone wanting a lap dog, she's your girl.

Requirements: No special requirements

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.

Breed: Black Lab Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Male

Likely an outside dog before, he is learning the house training, is crated for the workday, and practicing leash manners. Sometimes his joy at meeting new people takes over and he pulls and jumps. He's got a sweet personality and is so much fun. Wth training and exercise he's going to make a perfect family dog.

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. My perfect home would have a fenced yard or acreage, no other dogs, and be all right with a homebody dog who doesn't care to share my time with other canines. I would be happy sharing with kids and cats. I am house trained and well mannered. Please pick me!

Requirements: Fenced yard or acreage. No other dogs.

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: Fletcher (Adoption Pending!)
Breed: Aussie/ Shepherd Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Fletcher is a medium/large size Australian Shepherd/German Shepherd mix who loves all people, has been around two cats, and no problems with other dogs, big or small- he just wants to play. He is very strong on walks and pulls so would benefit from leash training, and he responds beautifully to being taught new things. At the dog park he is a little fearful at first, then just follows the lead of other dogs. Fletch seems to like other dogs thinking for him when he is unsure. He would be good alone or with another dog. He kennels for the workday and is very treat motivated. Those blue eyes seem to look right into your soul. He's an adolescent dog with a solid start to the training, mentally still puppyish but physical maturity of an adult.

Breed: Rottie/Shepherd Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Flounder is a chubby, smiley, goofball of a pup. She is happiest racing around the yard with a toy in her mouth and then divebombing for a lap to snuggle in.

Flounder is working on her housetraining and crates well for the workday. She is working on learning what is hers to chew and what is not, loves bones and loves toys. Flounder loves walks and is pretty good on the leash already. She is good with kids though a bit much for the real little ones, absolutely adores other dogs, and is fine with cats. She is a sweet, well-started pup looking for a home who wants to finish up the training with her. She is about 6-7 months old and will be a large dog as an adult.

She loves to be out making new friends, and her gentle and affectionate nature wins over everyone.

Name: Kallie
Breed: Black Lab (mix?)
Age: Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Kallie heard that black dogs are the last to be adopted so she decided if she couldn't win people with her looks, she was going to win them with her personality. Boy, does she ever too! She is little miss social butterfly, handing out kisses like candy at a parade. She is that all around exceptional dog that can go to the cabin, to the kid's games, to family gatherings and she loves every minute of it. She is a cuddler extraordinaire and don't ever tell her she is too big for a little lap-sitting! Kallie is excellent with other dogs, fine with the cats, and absolutely outstanding with kids. Kallie crates nicely for the workday and does have enough puppy in her to need some confinement when she's alone. She does occasionally confuse the kid's toys for her own when she is bored or unsupervised but she is learning and the kids are learning to pick up. She is housetrained on a schedule. She tends to be more medium energy where she absolutely loves and needs her walks but equally will never turn down a good snuggle on the couch once she is tired out too. Kallie is an absolute gem of a 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.

Breed: Terrier Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Lila is a sweet little Terrier mix girl who thinks her place is snuggled up in your arms. She is a lap-sitting extraordinaire! Lila was found left on a property fending for herself with her siblings so being in the house is new for her but she sure loves being warm, loves dog beds, and is learning her manners super quickly. The leash is new to her as well but she is learning how to walk on it like a champ with some treats and patience. She is working on her housetraining and crates for the workday well and uses her crate as a safe zone when she gets nervous and at first. Lila absolutely adores other dogs of any size and would love another dog to follow since they bring her out of her shell so much quicker but she would be fine as an only dog so long as her people knew she might need a little extra patience at first. She is excellent with cats, kids, and loves everyone she meets. Lila is about 6-7 months old, 15 lbs close to fully grown.

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

Previously house trained, she may need a refresher as she's been in the shelter now for a bit. An old injury caused glaucoma in one eye, which may need to be removed prior to adoption. She's a gentle, quieter, friendly dog who works very hard to do the right thing and make you happy.

Breed: Lab/ Spaniel Cross
Age: Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Moo is an adult female Spaniel/Lab mix who was picked up as a stray and not reclaimed. She is starving. Poor dog is skin and bones and needs some food, love, and TLC. She is already house trained-- that's how smart she is-- crates when alone, loves to lounge on the couch, and is very friendly with kids and dogs. She is curious about the cat, but no aggression. Moo does need to be fed separately still, as she will protect her food bowl from other dogs ( not people), but that's her only flaw. She likes to play ball, go for walks, car rides, and show you how thankful she is by plopping a paw on your leg.

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)

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!

Description: Pearl is a middle aged female Beagle who is seeking a responsible new home, one that will take care of vet needs and love her forever. House trained, crate trained, good with other dogs and people, she's a lazier girl who loves slow walks she can sniff around on and hanging out at your feet, keeping you company. Pearl very much considers herself the neighborhood greeter on walks and loves to be out saying hello to everyone. She has always lived with another dog and enjoys their company. Pearl is an easy dog to live with and an even easier dog to lose your heart to. One of her most endearing traits is her love of being held and cuddled. She also loves her sleep, and can be a little grumpy when woken up quickly, so we say her name to wake her up and she wakes with a wagging tail. For this reason, she would do best in an adult or older child home.

Requirements: No cats. Older kids.

Age: Young Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Penny is a one year old, 100 pound Mastiff with the best personality. She loves every person and dog she meets, and is always steady--- nothing really bothers this dog. We have not seen her with cats, so we can't speak to how she does with cats. She is friendly, curious, playful, and smart. We don't know her past, so not sure why she landed in the shelter, but to be this well adjusted we suspect she was loved. Her house training is unknown, but she keeps her kennel clean. If you can give this girl a great home we'd love it. Please don't apply if you rent, we want her to go to a home owner with long term housing plans since it's hard to rent with large dogs.

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.

She seems to be house trained, her foster has her on a routine for outside, and she is crated when alone. Pumpkin loves walks, sitting alongside the top of the couch like a cat, sunning herself, and being a good girl so she can hear those magic words. She's good with kids, dogs and cats.

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.

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.

Name: Ria
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.

She is a medium-high activity dog who relies on daily walks as well as daily romp and play time. Rose is very friendly, loves meeting new people and about, and is also very cuddly and affectionate after her play time. She's a smart, silly dog who enjoys life a lot.

Breed: Terrier/ Doxie Cross
Age: Senior
Gender: Female
Description: Rue is a senior Terrier/Doxie type mix, a small but mighty little girl who absolutely adores her people, cuddles, naps, walks, and takes being someone's furry friend very seriously. She is tolerant of other dogs and cats but protective of her people and her space with them towards other pets, so would thrive in a single dog home.

Name: Sam
Breed: Viszla Cross
Age: Senior
Gender: Male
Description: Sam is a senior ( 9 years) Viszla mix dog who needs a new home with not so much kid commotion. He is never aggressive or dominant, but the addition of small children to his life has resulted in some anxiety that shows with always being on the lookout for food, including that in the kids hands. When the kids go to bed he relaxes and settles back into his old self, the more mellow and calm guy. He is house trained, loves walks, is well trained inside and would be a perfect companion for someone who has kids that visit or no kids. He just wants a peaceful place for his senior years. He absolutely loves to sit outside so a home with yard space is ideal.

Name: Sarah (Adoption Pending!)
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: Sassy
Breed: Black Lab Cross
Age: Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Sassy is anything BUT Sassy---this eager to please, easy to love 3 year old Lab mix, 50 pounds, is about as much of a people pleaser as you will ever find. Good with kids, dogs, polite but fun, she loves walks, off leash hikes, hogging the bed, making you smile, and finding adventures with you. She is a conversation starter because she can't pass anyone on the street without saying hello. She's a very sweet dog. House training is going very well, and she is crated for the workday. Since she came from a rural environment, we are hoping to find her a home with yard space or someone very committed to daily walks. She will be available the weekend after Thanksgiving.

Name: Skye (Adoption Pending!)
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: Souli
Breed: Husky/ Shepherd
Age: Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Souli is an adult ( 5-6 years) female Husky/Shepherd mix girl, has an old eye injury that doesn't slow her down at all. Rescued as a stray, she clearly doesn't want that experience again, and prides herself on sticking to your heels. That being said, the Husky in her means she would do best with a fenced yard or being leashed outside. She is house trained, crate trained, excellent with kids and other dogs. We are finding out about cats. This beautiful dog so badly wants her own home and family.

Breed: Black Lab Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Spider is a 7-8 month old Lab mix girl with goofy ears, a funny overbite, and a great heart. She is a sweet, loving, adolescent who is a ready made best friend. This girl adores people with all her heart, follows you around for cuddles and attention, and will bring you all her toys and a couple of your shoes to share all her favorite things with you. She loves love. Spider is good with kids though a big puppy still so knocks the little ones around a bit but all in love. She is excellent with other dogs as well. Her housetraining is a work in progress and doing well with supervision, crate, and schedule. She crates nicely for the workday and is quiet in the crate. Spider loves car rides, walks (though her leash manners leave a bit to be desired), and being someone's companion. She needs some polishing on the training but she is ready and willing to learn, just needs someone to take the time.

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. He is a loving, smart, social Lab who has been waiting for a home for far too long.  

Requirements: No cats. No young kids.

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

Breed: Shiba/ Shepherd Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Sweetie is a 33 pound mixed breed female of about a year old, so full grown. 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 is house trained, crate trained, and minds her manners. Sweetie is seeking a quiet home to appreciate her dance moves when the leash comes out, pet her for hours, and enjoy her sharp mind. 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

With potty pads, she is 100% trained, and with outside training, about 80%. She is crated when alone. Tinker is a friendly, affectionate, lovable little dog who does well meeting new people and with dogs and cats. She of course loves piles of blankets, dog beds, laps.

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.

Name: Tuck
Breed: Black Lab Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Tuck is a young adult male Lab mix, found trying to pick his own home on the side of the road... he sat so patiently, holding up a paw to cars cruising past. Nobody stopped except the dog catcher, so he landed in the pound. There, his huge affection for all people but men especially won over animal control, and they started looking for rescue. He absolutely loves the other dogs in dog daycare, and stands by the door so he can greet all the people and dogs coming through. Tuck is learning the house training, does well crated, and loves to be with his people. He must have been a man's dog, because while he likes women and kids fine, it's men he's most drawn to. He does need more training, but he's a smart dog and learns quickly. Tuck is available December 9th.

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.

Valentine is paper trained inside and learning the outside house training now.

Choosing them earns you a pair of loving companions and the blessings of their late owner who loved them so much.

He is a polite walker on his 5 mile walks each day, which he loves--- please only choose him if you are willing to continue daily long walks.

Name: Winks
Breed: Black Lab Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Male
Description: Winks's sad picture is all we have of him at the moment but this is how Winks was found. He was starving on the side of the road after his head had been beaten with something causing some eye damage. He may lose the eye, he may not, but what he has not lost is his incredible love and adoration of people. Yes, even starving and in pain, Winks belly crawled to his finders and gently kissed their hands as they examined him, offered him food, and showed him love for the first time in a while. Winks is skinny and gaining weight back with proper diet but he will always be a smaller boy, likely 30-40 lbs (right now he is barely 17 lbs!). He does well with other dogs, appears to be fine with cats, and likes the kids very much. Housetraining is a work in progress but he crates quietly for the workday. He's young, about 9 months so needs training but he has a gentle, wise nature that makes him so easy to work with and live with. Winks needs a home to show him the love he missed out on so far. He is so worth it.

Name: Zula
Breed: Shepherd Cross
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Female
Description: Zula is a young adult female Shepherd mix who is out for a good time, and to make new friends. This happy dog greets total strangers like long lost friends, and is a very well balanced, social, outgoing dog. She adores kids and enjoys chase and play with them. Zula also likes other dogs, but is a bit of a bossy player with them, so would enjoy a home with a dog who doesn't challenge play, someone to play run/chase and wrestle with, or a home as an only dog. She enjoys meeting new dogs out and about on walks and at the park. Zula does chase cats, so a home with no cats is ideal. She's house trained and crate trained already, knows some simple commands. Our favorite is that when she sits, she automatically offers a paw. Zula is a high energy, active dog and needs a home with yard space to run in as well as an adopter to continue training and exercising with her. This is a dog with so much potential.

Requirements: No cats
