- Just look at this handsome boy. We discovered that he is an Lethal White
Aussie mix with Lab and has and although he looks like a lab has all the
lethal white/double Merle characteristics. What an absolutely awesome dog.
Sweet as pie loves everyone and always has a smile on his face. He is one
of the three White Angels Hope choose for the New Year; he is a very
special boy. He is totally blind and despite the neglect and what ever
this poor dog went through at human hands, he is still loving and gentle
and will make someone an awesome pet. We think he will do best with people
that work from home and with another dog. We will find him a forever home
where he will be treated with tenderness and love. We want him to see the
other side of life, the good side, the side that shows him humans are
wonderful and good parents. He surely has not given up that hope. If you
want to adopt Tucker you will be getting a wonderful companion full of
love and devotion. Tucker is up-to-date with routine shots, house trained

||This is Georgia, she was found as a
stray and made her way to an animal rescue in Salem, Ohio.
Georgia is blind but does very well with stairs and gets used to her
environment very quickly.
Georgia is a very sweet girl and is thought to be about 8 years old.
She is completely housebroken and navigates her way through the house very
well. Georgia likes to play with fleece toys and is very loveable.
She is available for fostering/adoption through Alchemy Acres in

||Our newest foster dog is Snyder, an 8
year old blind pit bull who was rescued from a high kill shelter in NY.
Don't let his age or blindness fool you though! He has the energy of
a 4-6 year old dog and learned his way around our house in 2 days!!
Snyder will be neutered in the next week or two, is up to date on all of
his vaccines and microchipped. We just had bloodwork run and
everything looked great! Snyder has done well in his short visits
with our dogs. We are still rotating them as he is not fixed, but he
enjoys being with him for the short time he is allowed. Snyder would
love a home to call his own. He is currently working on some basic
commands and I will provide private lessons to his adopter if they are
local. (Allentown, PA) Please forward this along to anyone
you think may be interested in our goof ball :0) They can contact me
for more information. Erin
||UPDATED BIO 1/18/2012: Hi, I
am Stevie, I am a 3 year old Yorkie boy. I weigh close to nine
pounds. I am completely blind, and nobody knows how or when I got to be
that way. I need a very very special person to adopt me. I have foster
siblings where I am, and they scare me when they are close; so, I need
to be an only dog. I am not housetrained, and it took me two weeks here
to be brave enough to go outside on a leash. I do not play or wag my
tail and am a special needs dog who needs a special person who can help
me have some quality in my life. If you are that person or if you know
someone who can love me and spend time to work with me please apply to
adopt me. I love my foster mom because she feeds me and rubs my head a
lot and does the best she can but she has more than just me to care for,
and I need my own caretaker who can help me reach my potential and help
me improve the quality of my life. Thank you for whatever help you can
find for me I am neutered and had a dental and am up to date on all my
shots and vaccines. Thank you....

I am sad but I realize that due to my
circumstances it would be best for me to re-home her to somewhere where
she would be an only dog, or live with a submissive male. (She typically
does not do well with other dogs). It saddens me but I realize I need to
do right by her. Her DOB is listed as 6/2008 so she is will be 4 years
old this coming June. She knows basic commands, sit & down (she has
a weak stay). She is ok on a leash but that is because most of the time
my dogs are in and out in the yard and do not go walking much. She needs
someone who can give her the love & attention that she
needs/deserves." If you think you can give Johnnie a good
home, please let me know, Wednesday Luria at email@example.com.
Transportation will be arranged anywhere up and down the east coast (Johnnie

|5 month old Australian Shep pups
The pups have limited sight and hearing.
We had their hearing tested and while they are considered “clinically
deaf”, we notice they hear some loud noises and either hear the other
dogs barking or feel the vibration.
They see well enough to find us, to get
around the house, patio and yard, have mastered our steps and are
healthy, happy puppies.
Delilah, female, is solid white
except for freckles on her nose and a small tan spot on her rear.
Despite her very limited sight and hearing, she is a very brave yet
sweet girl who loves to play tug with her rope, run outside in the yard
and of course, be held and rubbed.
Samson, our male, is white with
several black dots on his back, lots of black on his hind quarters and
several black dots on his nose. Sorry the picture doesn’t show the
black on his rear quarters. He loves to follow my husband (a guy thing),
finds the water hose very intriguing, enjoys standing in front of the
sprinkler for a “cool down” and loves to play with a big plastic
water bottle. He is a very playful sweet soul who loves running in the
yard and playing with his rope toy.
Our vet says the pups general health is
excellent. As of last week they finished all their shots. All three eat
well, know to potty when their feet hit the grass and play well with
other dogs. Our middle daughter brings her 5 yr old mix dog over for
“playtime” and they all chase each other around the back yard.
We love the pups but cannot keep 6 dogs
in one house. We have the two adult parents and our youngest daughter,
who just graduated from college, has returned home with her dog.
We would appreciate any assistance you
might offer. We know they will go to separate homes, we just want to
find someone to love them and give them a good home.

||This very handsome and sweet boy is Tank!
Sweet Tank has quickly become a volunteer favorite!
Tank is looking for his permanent home
and will be a fabulous companion!
This is Tank, a Catahoula Leopard
Dog/mix. He came into the Guilford County Animal Shelter as a stray in
May 2012. Tank has been diagnosed with "fatal white syndrome"
which means that he could be blind and/or deaf, but is otherwise normal.
He is definitely blind or has very limited sight. His hearing seems
fine, but this could change. Tank instantly became a volunteer favorite.
He has just the sweetest personality and is so docile and loving.
He is great with kids and has never had a negative reaction to any of
the other dogs. His date of birth is listed as May 25, 2011,
making him a little over a year old. He is definitely not housebroken
nor does he have any formal leash training, so would need some work in
|Tank is not in any imminent
danger of being put down, but he is not thriving in the shelter setting
the way we would like. He recently developed “happy tail” from
wagging his tail against the concrete block walls of his kennel, and he
is chewing on his plastic bed since he doesn’t get the visual
stimulation the other dogs get. Tank will need a special family
that is willing to accommodate his physical disabilities and work on
housebreaking & leash training in return for a gentle, loving

||On an unusually cold Los Angeles night, I
found Layla, a Shar Pei mix wandering around a very busy
supermarket parking lot with no collar. She has cataracts and is
mostly deaf. She can vaguely hear when you clap for her. She
can see shadows move. She also has fatty tumors over her body that
are unsightly but the vet says are benign.
When I coaxed Layla to get into my car
that night, I really thought I was taking home someone's cherished pet
who had wandered out of the backyard and I was just keeping her warm
overnight. Or someone abandoned her when they learned she
needed to have expensive treatment or be put down. She trembled
and when she fell asleep, it was hard to wake her up, it was like she
was in a coma. By the time I got her to the vet, she had taken a
liking to warm dog food flavored with whatever I have around, an egg, a
half-teaspon of catfood… and the vet said she had a good heart and
good lungs. That’s all he said. I didn’t do a blood
test. I guess I almost assume she’s diabetic by how much she
drinks water and pees. I took her to the vet. I put up
signs. I went to the shelters. And no one claimed her. This was October.
It is February now. By the way she keeps walking around "looking
for something or someone" I get the sense that she belonged to a
homeless person who may have either died or was hospitalized.
In any case, she is the embodiment of
pluck. I clap and she comes running. She gets along with dogs and
cats. Because my Rottweiler bit Lady badly in a squabble over food
and because there is an open pool in my backyard in which she has fallen
several times, I would like to find her a home where she is safe.
Layla truly is some kind of Angel.
When I see her whip the air with her tail because she is so grateful to
be alive and here on the planet and being loved and taken care of, I
feel pure joy. I want Lady to have a home of her own where she is
safe and wanted. There is something so special about Layla’s
spirit that I know she will be a gift for someone.
||“Baby” was found abandoned on
the side of the road. She appears to have been born blind. She is
currently in a foster home getting lots of TLC and attention. She needs
more time to grow up but will eventually be up for adoption to just the
right family that can handle her special needs. She is an American Blue
Heeler Mix and approximately two months old.

This big girl is a "miracle
dog." Meeting BluBell today, you would never guess
the state she was in when she came to Sheltie rescue. What
you first notice about BluBell is her striking blue merle coat with
classic patches of "blue" and white. Prancing around
her fenced yard, she is healthy and alert as she plays with her
favorite ball. She approaches strangers cautiously, but soon
warms up and asks for petting. BluBell loves to go for long
walks and trips to the pet supply store to scan the shelves for
interesting items, of course. Although raised as an only dog,
she enjoys other dogs and ignores the cats in her foster home.
Three months ago, BluBell was a very different dog. She came to
NVSR with severe allergies and ear, skin, and urinary infections.
Having been crated for long hours, she was under-socialized, extremely
nervous, and plagued with itchy, inflamed skin that caused her to bite
her skin and feet constantly. Two of our skilled foster
providers took over BluBell's case. She was tested for a huge
array of allergies, placed on limited-ingredient dog foods, and given
regular allergy shots. All her infections were treated with
medications and baths. Meanwhile, her leash training,
housetraining, and socialization were undertaken. BluBell has
become a healthy, confident dog.
BluBell is now ready for adoption. All her infections are gone,
and her house manners are excellent. She loves to play, be
cuddled and groomed, and she bonds strongly with her principal
caregivers. Her adopter will need to confine her to the foods
that are free of ingredients to which she is sensitive.
BluBell is very hard of hearing, so she
must be on leash or in a fenced area outdoors to keep her safe.
She is also microchipped. She can be placed only with adult
adopters; no children under age 16. BluBell would love to have a
playful canine buddy, too. It's much more fun to go on walks
with another four-footed companion.
BluBell is ... 17 inches tall, 35 pounds, and 7 years old. Her
adoption fee is $250. She is located in Afton VA (near
Stewie is a 10 month old, 10 pound
Westie mix. He is the cutest dog I have ever seen! He is
completely deaf in both ears but it is very hard to notice his
deafness because he lives a normal life. He was rescued
from a kill shelter in Nov. 2012. He is very active and
fun-loving! He wants to play all day and he will usually only
rest when he is in his crate, which he loves go into when asked.
He is house trained, needs at least one other young dog to play with,
uses a dog door, needs a completely enclosed yard. He would do
well with as many as 4 other dogs but no cats because he has not been
tested with cats. He is very healthy, neutered, UPD on all shots
and ready to go to a loving and active home. He requires very
little grooming, he stays clean, and he fur is a little scruffy
all the time! He knows a couple of hand signals so he will
"listen" to you and he tends to stay close by. It
would be best if he lives in a home where there are no busy streets
too close. Small children will not be good for him because
he does not hear them coming and he is a small guy.
Please email LeahM@AOL.com
or call 818-378-8828 for more information. I have more pics and
a video! Thank you, you won't regret adopting this darling boy.
|Roscoe is an adorable 2 yr old
American Staffordshire Terrier. He is a very friendly, outgoing, and
playful dog. He gets along well with cats and loves to play with dogs of
all sizes. Roscoe is also DEAF! Deaf dogs aren't as hard to live with as
people may think. They act just like any other dog except for the fact
when they are sleeping they don't wake up to every noise like you leaving
the room or making something to eat and they don't bark at every noise
(since they cant hear it!). It is sometimes difficult to call them in from
the yard during they day unless you have another dog they can follow but
at night just flip the porch light on and off. Roscoe will be at the door
by the second time! They also sell vibrating collars which are useful to
"page" a dog if in a different room or outside by themselves.
Deaf dogs are not hard to train. They are actually easier because they
arent distracted by noises! Roscoe has been trained using hand commands
and picks things up very quickly! It is also a myth that deaf dogs will be
aggressive if startled. Depending on the personality of the dog any dog
can get defensive if rudely awakened but not all deaf dogs bite when
startled. Roscoe (as well as a deaf aussie we had) would be jumped on by
another dog while sleeping and they would just jump up, look all around,
and be ready to play!
Roscoe is completely housebroken, crate trained, neutered, up to date with
shots, and microchipped. Please give this great boy the forever home he

a 1-11/2 yo pbt who is incredibly smart and loving. She came from Philly
where she was found in a wooded area loose, skinny, but still loving. She
came to us last December and we discovered that she is completely deaf. We
sent her to training with a volunteer and she came back completely trained
and much more at ease with her surroundings. She is scared of other dogs
sometimes, but plays very well with the 5-8 dogs in her play group,
however we are looking for an only dog home for her b/c she needs lots of
attention to be happy. She ignores cats and loves kids, however b/c she is
deaf and a child can easily startle her we are looking for a home without
small children. She responds immediately to hand signals and we will
require the adopter to go through an hour of training with the volunteer
that worked with Olivia for the past 7 months, so Olivia's transition will
be as smooth as possible. Olivia is possibly housebroken, crate trained,
walks with a harness, and is treat motivated. Please consider taking home

went to Virginia Tech today to have some tests run on his eyes and ears!
We got a confirmation that Chip is completely deaf in both ears. The
ophthalmologist believes that he has minimal vision (only able to see
light and shadows) and surgery to remove his eyelid would require
drastic removal of tissue due to his extremely small eyes. At this point
the plan will be to monitor him for any changes and treat those as
needed. The ophthalmologist believes that Chip has a condition called
Merle Ocular Dysgenesis, which is a congenital disease which
unfortunately has no treatment.
Chocolate Chip is a very special little boy. He was found
wandering around a neighborhood, not knowing where he was. Chip is
about 6 months old and is a deaf and blind dog. He can
see change in light, but that is about all. Chip was not
being taken care of and was sickly when we found him, but he is doing
wonderful in his foster home. He has gained weight, his fur is
very soft and he is a happy little guy. He
loves other dogs and needs to be placed with another dog to help him get
around. He does not like the snow, but when the ground is dry he
enjoys being outside. He does well with cats and children. He
would need to be placed in a home with older children that can
understand his situation.
Update from foster mom - Chex is doing wonderfully well in his
foster home. He learned to use the doggy door in just about 24 hrs. He
is getting along very well with the other dog in his foster home. He is
left un-crated when foster mom is gone to work and has not been
destructive, nor is he having "accidents" in the home. This is
one good boy!! Chex's foster mom does believe that he has limited
hearing and is not totally deaf. 11-07-11 - It has been determined by
rescue that Chex is deaf. It is unreal to us that no one else noticed
this.... as it is pretty evident once you spend a short period of time
with him. He is, however, very intelligent and very eager to learn new
things. We are, therefore, looking for a home for Chex with a fenced-in
yard and, at least, one other doggie friend. There is a lot of
information online on how to communicate with your deaf dog. Please give
Chex a chance...you won't regret it. Everyone who meets him, loves him.
He is a GREAT dog!

We have a wonderful adopter
of a fabulous wheelchair dog that has offered to speak with anyone needing
assistance with your paralyzed dog. Please contact Elizabeth at email@example.com
We will not be accepting
anymore paralyzed dogs into the rescue. The 6 we are currently
caring for have filled our spaces for wheelchair/incontinent dogs.
Rebel is a
very special dog. He had a spinal cord injury as a very young puppy and
was paralyzed. Since then he has made a dramatic recovery. He walks on his
own with assistance, especially outside and non slippery floors. He gets
around great in his wheelchair (see the video) . He is currently in
physical therapy twice weekly and loves the under water treadmill and his
rehab friends. Unfortunately Rebel has spent the majority of his life in a
cage - he needs someone special to take the time to help him finish his
recovery. Rebel has made great progress in his recovery and will soon walk
on his own. He has a love for all people and other dogs.He is young,happy
and full of excitement and energy!
||Dog's name; Sally
Breed; Terrier/Chihuahua mix, 9 pounds, female
Sally was abandoned at four months of age in an orange grove in Northern
California and left to die. Her back was broken in three places near
her shoulders leaving her with no use of her hind legs. Her back is healed
and twisted in such a way that she only uses her wheelchair for walks and
outings, otherwise she is more comfortable scooting. One of the legs
had been shattered and healed straight; after a few month's in our care
her scooting about left her with a broken pelvis. Our veterinarian
decided it was in Sally's best interest to remove the hind legs to prevent
future hip fractures.
Sally is sweet with her family but cautious around strangers. She is
social with other dogs of all sizes and loves cats.
She requires regular bathing due to elimination issues; she is not
incontinent but when she gets excited will piddle. She requires about an
hour per day in her chair just to give her skin rest from abrasions.
If you can provide a loving, committed home for Sally, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Today Bailey is still an active and happy
dog. He uses his wheelchair mostly outside and scoots around the house.
He is very affectionate and likes to snuggle. He does require manual
expression of his bladder about three times per day. Otherwise, he has
no health problems and is up to date on all his vaccinations.
At this time, my husband and I are
finding it more and more challenging to care for him. We both work a lot
and my husband travels as well. We are also currently trying to start a
family. I would love to find a loving home for Bailey where he can get
the attention he deserves.

||Buster has an
interesting story to tell. He was hit by a car 7 months ago and was
rescued by a good samaritan and taken to a veterinarian right away.
Unfortunately, the accident left him partially paralyzed and he is not
able to use his hind legs. Buster has been fitted to a special set of
wheels and gets around remarkably well! He is incontinent and will need
his bladder expressed three times a day. It will be very important to
keep Buster clean to avoid infection. He will also need urine cultures
every 6 months to ensure his urinary tract health. Despite his
difficulties, Buster is a happy little dog. He is an energetic boy that
loves to meet new people. It's easy to see that he is so thankful for
his second chance. Disabled animals show a special kind of devoted
loyalty to their caregivers. So if you have room in your home and in
your heart to adopt a disabled animal, it just might be the best pet you
will ever have.
Buster's story was recently featured in the Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/special-needs-dog-needs-someone-special-to-need-him/2012/05/09/gIQAXfr0DU_story.html

||Brief Bio: Meet Batman! Batman had been
hit by a car and his entire spine was fractured when found. Poor Batman
dragged his broken body across the street as cars continued to zoom by
him. Somehow Batman was able to reached an alley where he sat waiting
for help. Thankfully two amazing rescuers took Batman into their care
and Batman underwent extensive surgery for the fractured spine and
treatment for multiple wounds. The veterinarian reported that Batman has
missed the window of opportunity for the most optimal treatment for his
conditions and will not be able to ever fully walk again.
Regardless of the prognosis this handsome
guy never showed pain or fear. Batman along with his custom wheelchair,
zooms around like there are no worries in the world. Batman loves to
snuggle and be around people, he loves to play fetch and enjoys hanging
out at the dog park. We really hope an amazing home with fall in love
with this full of life fella and offer to give him what he has been
patiently waiting for. We are looking for a home that is able to give
Batman the TLC he needs and show him how wonderful a family is. Batman
is patiently waiting for a home to call his own!
||Molly is about 1 1/2 years
old. Born with spinal deformaties GoldHeart paid over $20,000 to
have the spine reconstructed, tail amputated, therapy and a cart for her
to get around. They told us 12 -18 months before we would know
whether she will ever walk on all 4 legs or always use a cart and if she will
regain the bowel and bladder muscle control.
We are looking for either a foster
home or a permanent home for Molly. A home with very limited steps (she
actually can take the cart up a couple of steps) and a yard for her to
play. She does get along with all other dogs and cats and has
lived with children up to the age of 9
She is spayed and utd on all
vaccines. She gets around very well in her cart. Loves to swim
which they highly recommend. She is a young girl with plenty

is a 6 year old disabled puggle who has no use of his hind legs, no
control of bladder or bowel, and is cart bound for getting around.
This is his story:
shopping at petsmart for our other dog, we happened upon an adoption day
and found an adorable puggle, Echo.
He came home with us that evening for a “trial run” (we all
knew he wasn’t going back) and has been with us ever since.
He led a normal dog life up until 4 years ago.
I came home from work to a dog in obvious pain and within hours
he lost the ability to use his back legs.
We rushed him to an emergency vet, and despite quick diagnosis of
a ruptured disc and surgery, Echo was never able to fully recover.
While his back legs haven’t worked since, his spirit has never
been broken. Two days after
surgery, Echo drug himself out of his kennel and over to me on the floor
just to lick my hand (I swear it was his way of telling me everything
was going to be ok). The
past 4 years have been a challenge, but Echo’s spirit and energy have
never faltered. This is the
reason that posting this is incredibly hard for me.
Since Echo’s injury, my wife and I have brought 2 children into
the world, and Echo has gone from being the baby to spending far too
much time in this kennel due to me picking up a new job and the kids.
He has become increasingly cranky and developed a temper around
the kids. I love this dog
more than I care to admit most days, but I just don’t have enough time
to give him anymore and he spends a lot of time in his kennel because of
the hours I work. Echo does
not deserve the hand he has been dealt, and it is totally unfair to
euthanize him because of what has happened, especially when he is a
loving, caring, wonderful dog. However,
if I cannot find him a home or a rescue, that is what we are left with. He needs a loving hand and someone with more free time than I
have currently. Please help
as he is a great dog, and it really isn’t fair to euthanize him
because of this.

Retriever/American Staffordshire Terrier Mix: An adoptable dog in Morehead,
Good afternoon, I work with a volunteer
group (STAR) from Morehead, KY and they have had Opie in boarding
since November of last year. He is a tri-pod who lost his home when his
elderly owner passed away. He is a senior who does not do well
with young energetic dogs. Due to this, STAR has not been able to place
him with a rescue, find an adopter or even get him into a

typical of my breed and I want all the attention you can give me! I
really love being around people and I want to be wherever they are. I
promise to love you in return.
My foster mommy says I would do best in a
home with an older mature person or couple who are home bodies and like
to cuddle a lot and take me for walks. I love curling up on the
couch next to people and snuggling. That's my favorite.
You’ll notice from my photos that I
tilt my head to the side. That’s because the vet says I
have a neurological disorder. But he also says it does not
affect my health or quality of life. I sure hope someone will
love me despite my disability.
Another thing you should know about me is
that I have cataracts which makes me not see as well as I should. But
it doesn't stop me from enjoying life every day. Please give me a
chance to prove what a good boy I am!
I am already neutered, vaccinated, and
micro chipped. And the good news is I’m house trained too! I
like other dogs and cats so long as they are nice to me. Screaming
kids scare me so I would really like to go to a home with much older
kids who will be very gentle with me. That would make me
If you want to know more about me, give
my foster mom a call at (914)
548-9098 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Give me a chance to prove myself to you! I’ll be your best
friend for the rest of my life!

Bella is almost three years old and has
matured into a sweet and snuggly girl.
When Bella first came into foster care,
she was rather timid. As she's grown up, she has conquered her fears,
and she has learned to be more confident. Bella is still sometimes a
little shy in new environments, but she behaves appropriately and no
longer cowers when confronted with a new situation.
Bella LOVES her humans and enjoys being
near to them at all times. In fact, she snuggles so closely, you'd
think that she was trying to get under your skin! Bella is good
with children, too, although she can be a little jumpy when playing,
so she would do best with older, school-aged kids.
Bella also loves the company of other
dogs, and she happily coexists with two other pit bulls. Her favorite
game is to play keep-away with a stick or a toy, and she will run and
chase the other dogs all over the backyard. Due to her shy nature,
Bella does get nervous meeting new dogs for the first time, so a slow
and proper dog-to-dog introduction is important with her. Once she
goes on a walk with a new dog, though, Bella is relaxed and happy.
Bella has never lived with cats and
we're not sure how she'd be with them; she has a high prey drive for
the squirrels and bunnies that sometimes wander into her foster mom's
backyard, but she has ignored the cat who lives at the vet's office.
With proper introductions and LOTS of supervision (and a dog-savvy
feline) she might be okay residing with cats.
Bella is crate trained and housebroken,
and she is also very smart. She knows when it's time for her foster
mom to go to work, and she will go into her crate on her own when her
foster mom is getting ready to leave. Since Bella is such a fast
learner, her foster mom thinks that she would be easy to train for
agility or disc competitions. (She already knows how to catch tennis
balls and frisbees!)
If you're looking for a super-sweet,
young dog who has already been through the puppy years, please
consider Bella. She is spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date on all of
her vaccinations, and she would LOVE to meet you!
Please feel free to contact Bella's
foster mom, Barbara at email@example.com
with any questions.
||Meet Mary Jane - I am about 4 years
old and I weigh about 90lbs. I have a docked tail, and I have a birth
defective foot malformation. I do not let my foot keep me down, and I
get around just fine. My friends at the shelter tell me that I will be
an easy dog to house break, because I prefer to use the potty outside.

||Scooter is 8 weeks old and is mixed
St Bernard and Black Lab. He was rescued from an abusive owner. When he
was found he was severely dehydrated and was malnurished. He had very
severe burns on the bottom half of him. The owner poured bleach on him
because he had open wounds from flea bites. Scooters spine did not form
completely so his back legs have trouble working right. He mostly hops
sometimes he does walk normally and sometimes he drags his legs. He is
incontinent of both stool and urine so he will likely have to wear a
diaper the rest of his life. He is a special little puppy he has a great
personality, very loving and he loves to play. He deserves a forever
loving home and we are hoping to find him one. We would be willing to
travel to meet someone that would love him and give him a great home.

|Gui and Boopie are two
fun-loving, sweet- as-can- be French Bulldogs, that would love a place
to call home. Gui is a 6 year old male that suffered a back injury
when he was younger and has come a long way since then. He loves
all dogs, doesn’t mind cats, and loves people. Boopie is 9, is
fine with cats, and is picky about her canine friends. She LOVES
her belly rubbed and spends most of her time relaxing on her bed.
We would love to see them placed together but would consider placing
them individually if the perfect homes came along. Both dogs walk
well but cannot do stairs. Both are housebroken but due to their
back injuries need to be taken out frequently to minimize indoor
accidents. Please visit their bio pages on the French Bulldog
Rescue Network to read more about them.
||Bowie is about 11 months old and is a
cattle dog/red heeler mix. She is extremely intelligent. She is great with
other dogs, is leash and house trained and knows some basic commands. She
is an excellent candidate as a service dog, as she is very smart and
learns very quickly. Bowie thrives on human interaction and will not do
well in an environment where she is contained for very long periods of
time with nothing to do. She needs to be an indoor dog as she has
sensitivity to heat and bright sunlight. Bowie has some sight and hearing
loss due to having a mild case of Hydrocephalus, which at this point does
not cause her any problems, but a special home will be needed for Bowie
due to this. Bowie also LOVES other dogs, and we feel it is important that
if she does not have a brother or sister, that she has exposure to other
dogs routinely. She does love to be outdoors and is a great candidate for
a children's dog, she just needs to be kept indoors during the heat of the
day as most dogs do, and her time outdoors supervised. It is a must that
Bowie be an indoor dog primarily. She is special and sweet, and wonderful
and smart. She's very affectionate and LOVES her humans. Red Heelers are
very loyal, so you will have a forever, committed companion in Bowie.
Bowie is a very social girl. She loves to be with her people, and does
very well when allowed to be a part of her family. She is great with other
dogs, is very playful and loving. Bowie is crate trained and yearning for
her forever home. She is spayed, up to date on all her vaccinations and is
heart worm negative. She is a lovely, playful and gentle girl and will do
well in an environment where she can play and be loved by her people and
would also do well with children who can wear her out. She has a pretty
high energy level, so needs lots of exercise and interaction. Her
intelligence makes her a fun companion, as she likes games and to be
challenged. She responds well to training and touch, and knows a few
commands in sign language. Bowie's adoption fee is $100.

Are you looking for a great doggie friend?
Ida might be just the girl for you. Ida is a 15 inch beagle
and is about 6 years old; she is tri-colored and has a lot of red ticking
as well. Ida gets along well with other dogs, but does not like
cats, and would be happiest with no other small animals such as rabbits,
guinea pigs, or birds. She is very quiet and reserved – she is crate and
house trained, but does not like to go outside without a person with her.
Since coming to
Sanctuary House [in Upper Fairmount, MD] last spring, Ida has had several
seizures. At the present time she is not on any medication.
Because other dogs sometimes attack a dog having a seizure, it is
important for Ida not to be left alone, unsupervised, with other
dogs. Ida needs an owner who understands epilepsy and is willing to love
Ida is looking for
a quiet home; she likes to sit under the desk or cuddle on the couch and
watch a movie. She is not a high energy doggie, and is usually
content with brief walks or play time. Ida loves dog biscuits.
Ida is spayed, up
to date on vaccinations, and has tested negative for heartworm, Lyme,
Ehrlichia, and Anaplasmosis. She will be microchipped prior to
travel to Easton, MD, to meet prospective adopters. If you
are interested in adopting Ida, please email Sister Mary Winifred at firstname.lastname@example.org
for an application or call 410-621-0709 for more information.
||Mo-Mo is a 4yr old Boxer /
Great Dane / Mixed and was treated for Distemper. So far it appears there
will be a residual tick that is affecting his left leg muscles. As the
pictures show, he is active and it is not letting it get in his way. TMo-mo
is still available and being housed in my home. He is a sweet loving guy
who still acts like a puppy and very playful. Our family has taken him to
a local lake where he was just awesome going into the water. He did swim
in deeper water but only when we where they next to him. Mo-Mo is current
on all vaccines, neutered, and micro-chipped. If we could find a loving
heart and a happy home locally, we would place him at no charge as his
adoption amount has been taken care of already. If it is out of the area
and he has to be shipped, the adopting family would have to pay for those

||My name is Scooter and loving is my
game! I am a spry 4 years old, born 1-21-06. I am up to date on all
of my shots, I have been neutered and I just had a dental. I used to
live in a family with 2 big dogs, cats and teenagers. I love to play
with my small tennis balls: if someone will throw them I am a great
fetcher. I really love to have my tummy rubbed also. I will
happily sleep in my crate, but my foster Mom thinks that I would be just
as happy in her bed with my foster sisters.
I do have one problem. I was diagnosed with
IBS, Irritable Bowel Syndrome. It is very well controlled if I stay
on my special diet of d/d, potato & salmon. I CAN EAT NOTHING
ELSE, NO TREATS. However, I think that ice cubes are great treats
& you can’t go to the freezer without giving me one! ( I have been
known to fake a pee just to get a treat!) If my IBS does flair up I will
let you know in no uncertain terms that I need out NOW! I
am such a sweet boy, won’t someone
please give me the loving home that I crave?? I am being fostered in
Ohio and am housebroken. Contact email@example.com

||Hi everyone! My name is Arnie, and I
would love to be your best friend! I get along with everyone and love to
play! I walk kind of funny and lose my balance sometimes because the
doctors say have a condition called Myotonia Congenita. I take on the
world at a slower pace, but I don't mind--you should see my huge muscles!
Arnie is currently in foster care, if you would like to meet with him
please contact Animal House at 970-224-3647.
