FOSTER HOME NEEDED Statistics Name: Ronnie Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Age: 2 Years Size: Medium lbs. ~Medium range: 26 - 60 lbs Adoption Donation: $75 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Spayed Female, Vaccinations current, Microchip, Fenced-in yard required, No children, NO other pets Ronnie is looking for a home all of her own! Foster Home Feedback * NO other pets, No children, Fenced-in yard required 12/11/17: Ronnie has grown into such a happy girl, despite all of the pain she's no doubt endured. It is so wonderful to see these positive changes happening. At first, Ronnie was not happy about using a kennel. Luckily, she has figured out that her kennel is a safe space, all just for her. If she wants to chew on a bone that is out in the living room, she will pick it and run (very enthusiastically) into her kennel to enjoy her bounty. Ronnie was initially an exuberant leash-puller; with some training and a walking harness, she has turned into the splendid walking partner. Ronnie is going to be an absolutely perfect companion for the right person, and we are so excited to meet you, whoever you are! 11/6/17: SO MANY CUDDLES! This dog is a perfect friend for those who dislike the cold. She prefers the warmth of indoors to long romps in the snow. Since the weather turned, Ronnie and I have spent many hours lounging by the fire, sewing and baking cookies. Every time I let her out of her kennel, she does this adorable slow, happy lolloping run through the house, and it makes me want to squish her face so much! We still have no accidents in the house, she's doing great in her kennel, and Ronnie is really honing her leash skills. 10/12/17: Ronnie is an amazing dog. So incredibly loving and sweet and cuddly and awesome. All this dog wants in life is to be with her people. We don't have any bathroom problems in the house; she does well in the kennel (after she settled into her heavy duty kennel), and she walks nicely on a leash. Ronnie's a great size - not too big, not too small. She rides nicely in the car, and we've been working on a little bit of anxiety when she's left alone in the car for brief periods of time. She's doing really well. When we first started, we couldn't even leave her alone in the car to run into the house to grab something we forgot. Last weekend, I was able to run in to the grocery store for coffee beans, and she did great. I'll continue to take her for very short trips to build her confidence. Oh, and Ronnie's seriously adorable. She's so cute that people have pulled their cars over to talk to us while we're walking in the neighborhood. So if anyone is looking for dog that can help them get a date, Ronnie would be perfect. 8/13/17 Volunteer Feedback: Ronnie had a kennel break at our house. She very interested in laying on the couch! She had 2 poop accidents but that was it. Otherwise did all her business outside. Ronnie doesn't love the kennel and will need a little work in this department. I was able to leave her in a metal kennel for roughly 25 minutes and although she was anxious, she did not bust out of it. Ronnie will need some positive reinforcements with the kennel. I think it wouldn't take her long to be comfortable in one. She is a lover and loves her people!! Ronnie is very content just hanging out with her family. She would be a pretty easy dog to have around once her fear of the kennel is relieved. And she is as cute as a button!! 8/12/17: Ronnie is a sweet lady who finds the world a little scary at times. Men especially can scare her, but with patience, she realizes they are friends. Ronnie will need a home who understands and can help her overcome her fears.

Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. FOSTER HOME NEEDED Statistics Name: Iris Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix Age: 4 Years Size: Large 87 lbs ~Large Range: 61 - 100 lbs Adoption Donation: $75 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Spayed Female, Vaccinations current, Microchip, No other pets, Needs fenced-in yard, No children Iris is super sweet...You are gonna love her! Foster Home Feedback ** Needs fenced-in yard, No other pets, No children 9/29/17: It’s hard to explain how a picture can make you want to help, but as soon as I saw the picture of Iris online I knew we needed to help her. She came from an out of state pound where she ended up giving birth to seven puppies. She and her puppies had nowhere to go and it was heartbreaking seeing them all in the pound. After a few days of organizing transportation (including two flights from Pilots N Paws), they were here! A short time after arriving Iris became very sick and needed to go to the emergency vet for surgery. She had a horrible infection in her uterus and needed immediate surgery to save her life. She ended up staying at the vet for two days because of mild complications with the surgery, but she pulled through and everything was good again. Until she went to the vet again for a routine exam and it was discovered she was heartworm positive. Poor Iris has been through so much already and now this. She has been going through heartworm treatment for two months and has one more month left. The treatment is getting injections once a month to kill the heartworms. She has been doing very well with treatment. She needs to be on crate rest while she goes through the treatment which is not a big deal for her since she is already very mellow and laid back. Iris is one of the sweetest dogs I have ever met. We have fostered over 70 dogs and there’s something about Iris that has touched my heart. She’s only about 4 years old, but she has an old soul. She is very mellow and relaxed. She loves to hang out with her people and is not hyper or needy at all. She listens very well and is treat motivated so teaching her new things has been easy. Iris needs to go to a home with no other pets though. Some dogs just want to be the only pet and that is what Iris wants for her best life. She deserves all of the attention to herself. She does well on walks and if she sees other dogs she does not try and get to them. She just ignores them. She loves going for car rides and will sit in the back calmly and look out the window. Unfortunately, Iris does have some separation anxiety so she needs to go to a home with no shared walls. She has a special crate she stays in when we are not home and she does very well in it, but she does bark and whine when we leave. The crate is an extra strong metal crate that she cannot break out of. When she was in a weaker crate she was able to break out of it and chewed the wood trim of our door and window. Because of this, it is recommended she not be left out when no one is home. When we are home, she is super easy, does not bark or whine at all, and just wants to hang out with you on the couch or outside in the sunshine. Iris is truly a great dog and I am so thankful we were able to help her. If you have a home with no pets and are looking for an amazing dog, Iris is it.

Foster Home Feedback * Older considerate children only; NO cats ** Deaf - http://www.deafdogs.org/training/ ~ A website for people with deaf dogs and those who are considering adopting them! It has general training tips. 11/30/17: Blue had been staying with us for the past few months. She is a fun house guest. Blue LOVES her people and she really needs to be wherever you are. If you want to go for a run, she is going running with you. If you want to sit on the couch and finish a whole season of a tv show on Netflix, Blue will lay on top of you for the whole time giving you a great excuse as to why you can’t get up and must keep watching. She is not a lazy dog but she is not a high energy dog either (She is just right!). Blue loves toys and two of her favorite things are to be chased and to play tug. Blue does get easily over-stimulated in public and will need continuing training to help her bond and pay attention to the person handling her. Car rides are very confusing for deaf dogs so she must be kenneled while riding in a car. Blue has done well with car rides when her kennel is secure and after some time. Blue does do well with other dogs and she loves puppies. She can be overwhelmed when she first meets a dog so will slow intros are necessary to help her transition to a home with another dog. Even though Blue is deaf, we don’t really do anything differently with her at home. She does know some basic hand commands and we are working on a few others. If you are looking for a dog that smothers you with love, Blue is your girl. 9/21/17: We have had Blue in our home for about a week now. She is a good dog and loves her people and other dogs. Blue would love a doggy friend to play with. We have a 4-year-old in the home and she does very well with him. Blue is deaf but that doesn't slow her down a bit. She knows some hand commands and listens well. Blue kennels during the day and does bark a bit but settles down nicely. A huge perk of having a deaf dog is she doesn't hear the doorbell ring or a knock at the door! To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: www.4luvofdog.org

Statistics Name: Jinxy Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix Age: 3.5 Years Size: Medium 40 lbs. ~Medium range: 26 - 60 lbs Adoption Donation: $180 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid by cash or check. Other: Spayed Female, Vaccinations current, Microchip, No Cats, Older considerate children Jinxy just wants to cuddle! Foster Home Feedback * NO Cats 1/4/18: Happy New Year! Jinxy is hopeful that 2018 is the year she finds her forever family. She has been getting the hang of our new routine as much changed when I switched careers with drastic changes (such as my amount of hours worked, she can no longer come to work with me, etc). She would be over the moon happy to be with an adult family where she can get their undivided attention and go running with them a couple times a week, then come home and snuggle on the couch. Of course, Jinxy loves to please, so we are working with her to overcome even more hurdles, such as not acting out of control when meeting new dogs; she does best with a slow and controlled environment with time. Jinxy has some separation/isolation issues but does well with structure and a solid routine. She also does best in a small area versus a kennel. Jinxy has been exposed to children and enjoys them when they respect her and her space. She doesn’t seem to fully understand kids so an adult home would best suit her, or one with older children. Jinxy knows and enjoys her routine we have now. Once she is settled into an environment, you hardly know she is there. She snuggles up into her bed and is a happy peaceful pup. If allowed, she would choose your lap or the couch over her bed and ensure that you are kept warm and safe. Jinxy is so easy to love! 5/8/17: Jinxy's update is well overdue. She has settled into our family so wonderfully. Jinxy enjoys being with us, whether it's playing and goofing around or relaxing in the sun. She has done well with crate training the past couple of months and has very, very few accidents in her crate and none in the house. She comes to work with me during the day and this has seemed to help tremendously so I can make sure to get her out to potty. Jinxy enjoys training and flourishes with positive training methods. She has done great with our dogs too and is learning to be calm when meeting other dogs. Jinxy is also great with kids. She is a fantastic dog! 2/23/17: Jinxy has certainly settled into our home and hearts. She is a very affectionate girl who wants to please (and gets easily distracted). We have been working on "dog to dog" behaviors and she is learning to throttle back some when playing with our dogs. Since she gets distracted easily, she can sometimes forget to do both 1 and 2 potty when she is outside. If we monitor her though and remind her by going out with her, taking away distractions, and telling her to go potty, then she does great and can be allowed free roam of the house (when we are home). Jinxy is working on crate training and has a little anxiety. She knows sit and stay, lay down, and more soon! She has also been around kids, ages 4 and 6, and been great. She seems to have a prey drive with cats so not recommended to be around cats. She has tolerated being switched to Zignatures dog food. Her skin is still very sensitive, for example, to the cold, irritates easier from scratches, etc. Jinxy LOVES playing with the jolly ball. She is quick, driven, and has a great vertical jump; she is a wonderful candidate for agility. She sometimes skips an entire set of seven stairs (!) at our house when she is running her "hot laps"...She is such a hoot. 12/18/16: Jinxy has been with us for a couple of days. She seems to be kennel trained and potty trained, so far. She requires slow intros to dogs, as she can sometimes be intense on leash- we are working on it though and have very high hopes she can learn to control herself. Jinxy loves to play and is a great cuddler when she is tired. She is only about 40lbs too, so great size to share the couch with! Currently, Jinxy is on special dog food (ZD) for her sensitive stomach and skin. To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: www.4luvofdog.org

Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, vaccinations current, microchip * Adoption Donation to help Merlin find his forever home from Dorothy! Thank you! Merlin wants to have a magical forever home! Foster Home Feedback 11/21/17: I still can't believe this little snuggler hasn't found a home to call his own. With colder weather on the way, Merlin would love to work his magic on keeping you warm. There's nothing he loves more than to snuggle up next to you for a nice quiet evening of Netflix and chill. As stated before, Merlin does take a bit to warm up. He's had some tough times and because of that, it takes him awhile to trust you, especially males. When Merlin first came to us, we just ignored him and let him do his own thing. Once he realized we were okay, he became our shadows and only likes to leave our side to snuggle up on one of the dog beds we have lying around the house - either in his kennel or anywhere he can find a warm spot. Once we're on the couch though, then he definitely wants to join you. Merlin also really enjoys walks. I am not a runner, and Merlin is very appreciative of that so if you're looking for someone to hard run a few miles with, then Merlin isn't the guy for you. He likes a nice leisurely walk around the neighborhood and then some couch time after. If you're looking for a handsome fella to keep you warm on those colder nights, Merlin is the one for you! 1/3/17: Merlin is still searching for a home he can call his own. Merlin still gets around like a champ with the help of Dasaquin and Lubri-Syn once a day. This will have to be continued indefinitely. Merlin also needs to avoid a lot of activity like a lot of stairs or high furniture. I have doggy steps that he uses to get up and down off our couch/bed, and he is happy to use those. As long as Merlin has a lap to snuggle on, he's a very happy, content little guy. Merlin's ideal home would be one without a lot of stairs and a very laid back home without a lot of visitors. Even with this colder weather, Merlin still goes outside to do his business but is happy to get back into the warm house and find a spot with my other dogs in front of a vent to warm up. If you're looking for a snuggle buddy to keep you warm on these cold nights, let Merlin work his magic on you! 4/27/16: Merlin is still patiently waiting and is hoping he'll be spending summer with a family he can call his own. While warmer weather usually means a lot more activity, Merlin is still happy to just lounge around the house. Now that we're getting some warmer days, Merlin likes to show off how great he is at multitasking by "supervising" me while I do lawn work AND soaking up the sun at the same time. While Merlin does enjoy a walk, he's happy that I'm not too much of a runner, as he's happy to go at a nice, leisurely pace. His favorite place to be is still curled up next to me, but when I have things to do, he'll crawl into his crate with his blanket and is very content in there. Merlin may take a little more time and patience, but once he feels secure and knows you're all right, he'll give you his heart and be your buddy for life. 12/16/15: Merlin has his paws crossed that he'll get a wonderful forever home for Christmas. Merlin has done excellent with his potty training and will now tell us, sometimes quite adamantly, when he needs to go out (even with this colder weather). However, I would recommend an adopter crate or keep a close eye on Merlin when bringing him into their home. I still do slow introductions to people with Merlin but have noticed that Merlin seems to do better with women than he does with men. While he is able to be around men, it does take time for him to learn that he can trust them and so I now let men know not to overwhelm Merlin, give him some time and patience, and to let him come to them. I am a huge supporter of positive reinforcement, and this would definitely need to be the case with Merlin. Merlin is still getting around like a champ, but he is on a daily joint supplement and anti-inflammatory. We just stick them in with his breakfast, and he chows them down. Merlin is definitely my snuggle buddy and takes his job of keeping my legs and feet warm very seriously. If you have the patience to let Merlin come out of his shell, you will see an extremely loyal and delightful little guy. 8/27/15: Merlin is a wonderful, happy little fellow who has fit right into our home. He is doing very well with his potty training and will remind us that he needs to go out. He's a talkative little guy, so I would recommend no apartments for Merlin. He does very well with our dogs - big and small. We only have two who are interested in playing with him, and he's always up for a good game of chase. Merlin does have subluxating patellas (common in small dogs), so we are careful to make sure he doesn't get too crazy in his play. When our own dogs play, he either wants to join in the play or tell them to settle down. Merlin would do well in a calmer home as he likes to run a tight ship. While he does enjoy meeting new people, he also wants to make sure they understand no shenanigans. Merlin loves to crawl up into my lap and rest his head on my shoulder. At night, he crawls under the covers and keeps my legs warm. Merlin does well in a crate but definitely enjoys being around his people.

Marty McFly is back from the future and wants to have his great forever home apply today (please?)... Foster Home Feedback * NO Cats 8/23/17: Things with Marty have been coasting along great! He's still as laid back as ever and never turns down an opportunity to cuddle! I'm constantly impressed at how well he listens and obeys commands. We have started slowly introducing Marty to the kennel while we have been gone and so far his response has been very positive! He is very treat-motivated and catching on quickly that the kennel is not a negative space. He had been very fearful and anxious in the kennel before, but with slow and gradual periods of time being in the kennel he has really improved with his anxiety being alone! We love having Marty around, but we would love to see him go to a great home as well. Please consider giving Marty a chance to fill your home with love! 5/20/17: Marty has been doing so well at adoption day events! He has never been a timid or shy dog, but sometimes he tends to get a little nervous in new situations and places. His anxiousness has never been an issue for his behavior, all he really needs is some extra love and comfort which he finds in all the people he meets at PetSmart! He isn't shy about going right up to people and waiting patiently by their side for some head rubs. Marty isn't phased at all about the other dogs barking or kids getting close to him, or at all the attention he gets by his natural good looks. He's pretty much a dream dog when it comes to not causing a scene and going with the flow! He also definitely has a "comfort zone" when we let him outside to do his business. We have a large, fenced in yard but Marty doesn't stray more than a few feet off the deck and when he's finished he returns to the door to wait for you to let him inside right away. He's eager to be by your side again where he likes it the most. He's still on his prescription diet dog food. While Marty gets very excited and slobbery when it comes to dinner time, we always make him calm down and "sit" before putting the food down for him and he does without an issue. Any flare-ups of diarrhea he has are generally caused by food outside of his norm (or excess stress) so we still keep to a very strict diet of only his dog food for meals and treats. That means no other treats or human food to keep his tummy happy and healthy. Marty is pretty reliable for cuddling with you whenever you have a lap he can lay in. You have my word when I say that he will never chew up toys or things around the house when left alone, bark at the mailman or any visitor, and never show aggression towards a person or another dog. Give this sweet old man a chance to prove how loyal he can be! 4/26/17: Marty has been staying with me this week while his foster family is on vacation. From the minute he wakes up until he falls asleep at night, his tail is wagging. We live on a farm so when we go for walks, he gets to stretch his legs and do some running but always stays close by and wants to keep his people in his sight. He listens well and comes when he is called. Marty is a nervous dog and doesn’t like sudden, loud noises but quickly settles down when reassured that everything is ok. He loves to cuddle on the couch and has fur that feels like velvet. If you are looking for a good walking partner and someone to relax with you while you’re watching TV, please consider Marty for your pal! 1/28/17: Marty is still looking for his forever home!! We've slowwwly been transitioning from his prescription food to a healthy limited-ingredient formula dry dog food. We've been doing this slower than usual because we didn't want prior digestive issues to pop up again. We are happy to say that half-way through his transition, he's been doing wonderful and there have been no issues! We would expect for this to continue and for him to be on his new dog food completely in another 2 weeks. His weight is normal but his appetite is still ravenous! We are still feeding 3x a day, but have cut back his noon-time portion. Other than that, there isn't much to report! He has been a very laid back dog to foster. Once he finds a routine, he's a very happy camper 12/28/16: Marty's intestinal issues are largely under control. In January, he will start to wean off of his prescription food! Marty is a sweet older guy that's had a rough couple of months and is looking for his forever home! 10/15/16: We've had Marty almost 4 months now and is getting very comfortable in our home. He listens very well to us and knows to come, sit, stay, and no. He has learned boundaries, and which rooms I don't allow him in and when I go into that room, he stays outside the door and waits. He sleeps in his big dog bed, next to our bed, comfortably all night long. At first, he wanted to jump up into the bed. With persistence and consistency, he knows where to go now when it's time for bed. During the day when I'm working from home, he naps in my office and keeps me company all day. He rarely bothers me at all, but when he does need something, he will nudge my arm or go and stand in the hallway. He loves to keep a close eye on me so whenever I get up and do something, he will be sure to follow! He loves watching TV with me! He is very curious at the sounds and the moving pictures and will perk up and tilt his head at certain parts of the program, or he will even get up from his comfy cuddle place and go check out the TV closer. It's the cutest thing! In our home, we have stopped kenneling him and he has settled down and relaxed a ton. When we are gone, he roams in a limited area between the kitchen and living room, and as long as the garbage and food on the counters are put away, we have had zero issues with him getting into things he shouldn't, and zero accidents! We have learned that in new environments without us around he can be a bit mischievous, so a close eye on him is recommended. Marty is still looking for his cuddle buddy and best friend. He will do best in a home where someone is with him most of the time. Marty is such a sweet guy, he's waiting for your love and affection! 9/19/16: Things with Marty the past couple months have been only been getting better! (Back in the early part of June, he had to have some rotten teeth removed, and that surgery on top of being in the shelter really stressed him out. He was having some major issues with his loose stools, and he had also lost about 15 pounds of weight, but we thought once he was in a home with lots of love things would get better. However, not much had improved in terms of gaining weight or forming stools so the Vet switched up his food to a strict hydrolyzed protein diet plus other medications for Irritable Bowel Syndrome.) It has taken a few months and another hospitalization but I can honestly say things are SO MUCH BETTER! He's back up to a healthy weight and his stools are firm. We currently have him on hydrolyzed protein dry food, a dry herbal supplement sprinkled over his food, a steroid that he takes once every 3 days, and a fatty acid supplement, which he will be done with soon. For treats, he gets his dry food for now because we don't want to upset his tummy too much, but honestly, he doesn't know the difference. Marty's happy with ANY food and he even has quite the happy dance when he knows it's time to eat! He loves catching his treats up in the air in between meal times... he is really good at it too! As for the kennel... it is NOT his favorite. The poor guy has some serious abandonment issues and will happily follow you around the house all day long, but as soon as he goes in the kennel, he gets pretty worked up and barks. In fact, the ONLY time he ever barks is when he's in the kennel or left alone outside. I have had some success using treats and food as a reward, but even as food-motivated as he is, he still does not like going in the kennel knowing that he will be left alone. I have left him inside my house with my other dog while I'm gone for short periods and he seems to be fine. He is an older dog and does need to go outside to relieve himself every few hours so him being left in a kennel or inside the house would be best if only for shorter periods at a time. Marty is the absolute happiest and best dog when you are able to spend time with him cuddling on the couch or just hanging out at home. He loves to go for walks, to get outside and smell all the smells and chase squirrels. He his quite strong and fast for his age so we use training collars or an easy walker to reduce the pulling and that does help. He does great with other dogs, he actually ignores dogs altogether because all he cares about in his entire world is you! There have been times where other dogs have been barking in the neighbor's yards and he won't blink twice at them. He absolutely loves every person he meets and has such a friendly personality. Marty is the certainly one of the most lovable, affectionate dogs I've known! He's totally stolen my heart! 6/25/16: This guy is such a lover! All he wants is to be right by my side at all times for pets and snuggles. It's pretty adorable, if you didn't know any better you'd think he's been here his whole life! I haven't been crating him at night because he's much happier sleeping in our room on our bed or floor. He loves sniffing out rabbits and squirrels in our backyard too. He hasn't caught any...yet! So Mr. Marty Snuggles has been doing pretty great overall! He's very happy! 6/1/16 Volunteer Feedback: Marty McFly is the most laid back dog I have had the opportunity to spend time with in awhile. He was so easy-going; all he wanted to do was sit next to me, get petted, and give a few gentle kisses. He is the sweetest old man, but he doesn't act his age! He is still a spry young pup inside and his body doesn't seem to slow him down much at all. He is a happy fellow. I don't have any major concerns with Marty, I haven't seen any bad behaviors from him at all. He has met a few dogs at the shelter and has done fine, but because of the environment, more dog testing should be conducted outside the shelter before we can say he is bomb proof. I have not seen him jump up at all, and he doesn't have an overabundance of energy. He really is just a sweet, older guy looking for a nice home to live out his golden days. He does have a specific type of food he eats and is on some meds for some digestive issues, but those are expected to dissipate once he is in a home environment and away from the stress of the shelter. Please consider giving Marty a chance. He is a great, loyal companion that just wants a nice bed or couch to snuggle on. He has totally won my heart, and will no doubt steal yours too!

Foster Home Feedback * NO Cats 10/28/17: I've only had Gendry for three days and it's hard to believe he acted like a puppy when I first brought him home. I would now describe him as a gentle giant (who doesn't know how big he is) that loves people!!! Gendry does not like cats, not even pretend cats. He likes to play toys with my 6-year-old son and will play his version of fetch with me Gendry likes to get a hug before he will release the ball. We are working on "drop". He loves to be hugged and massaged. He will entertain himself for an hour or so with bones or toys. Gendry prefers to be near his people. He will take a nap on his blankets or in his bed; he will even use a toy as a pillow. Oh, and he can snore. It's not too loud...it's adorable. Gendry is a fast learner. He knows "sit", "down" and "sit up" which is our version of a puppy sit-up. He is working on "shake" & "speak". We have also worked on "off" and he does OK when it comes to the sofa but it is a challenge to get him off the bed. Once he is comfortable, Gendry is dead weight and he looks at you with his eyes that seem to say "Please?????". Now that we have a doggie bed for him he does like to lay in that and chew on his chew toys. We love to go for walks using a walking harness (the volunteers at the shelter started using with him); Gendry is learning to walk with me instead of pulling me. He still has a way to go, but in the three days we've been working on it, he has come a long way. We do walk to the elementary school to get my son in the afternoon. Gendry loves the attention he gets from the students. I did try to use a wire kennel for Gendry but he learned how to escape within minutes. During his hour of freedom, he did check out the garbage and move (without chewing) a few of our shoes to a different room. He also played with his toys while I was gone. I now just leave him in my bedroom with a few of his favorite chew toys. Or I take him with me. In the car, he should be tethered or you may find him trying to drive with you. I also need to mention Gendry is a handsome dog! He has tiger-like markings on his back that are very unique. His face is expressive and his quirky ears add to his personality. Whenever we meet someone new, they comment on his beauty. I am so excited for Gendry to find his forever home.

Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, Vaccinations current, Microchip Junior would love to have a forever home! Foster Home Feedback 11/7/17: With the arrival of winter came the departure of Junior to any place warm and snuggly. Sometimes I see a blanket start to wiggle and that's how I locate him. He has no body fat to rely on, so he seeks out blankets and throws, or warm laps under blankets and throws, to keep the cold away. Junior is a delightful boy with ears tailor-made for being a good listener. He has a playful side and has removed the stuffing from a few toys in his short time here. He may just be trying to construct a warm nest somewhere I know nothing about. Junior was very nervous when he first arrived but has settled in with the other four dogs here. He is not aggressive and waits patiently for his turn when the food and treats are dished out. He eats eagerly, so I expect he will gain some weight before too long. Right now he is about 10 pounds, mostly gangly legs, and the aforementioned ears. I haven't seen him around cats or kids, but he seems quite docile. He does have a shrill bark on occasion but will quiet down when instructed. I have not kenneled him. There have been a very few pottying accidents in the house, but with five suspects, it's hard to pin them on him specifically. He has not been destructive. Either he's good by nature, or he just doesn't want to leave his warm cocoons. Junior eats up affection as eagerly as his food and returns it in kind. And the money saved on grooming costs could go toward a handsome winter wardrobe...Or more blankets. To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: www.4luvofdog.org

    Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher (short coat). Adoption Fee: 180. {s3829code380/} If you would like to provide this dog a loving home, please fill out a pre-adoption application. Have a question? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Adoption Processed Explained documentation. Statistics Name: Carlito Breed: Miniature Pinscher Age: 4 Years Size: Small lbs. ~Small range: up to 25 lbs Adoption Donation: $180 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, Vaccinations current, Microchip Carlito is a cute little boy who just knows you want to take him home! Foster Home Feedback Carlito has fainting-type episodes on occasion. He has had testing to determine if these episodes are due to Diabetes, Addison's Disease, or Epilepsy, and results have been negative. Carlito's adopter must be understanding that Carlito may need further vetting to determine what these episodes are. 10/30/17: Carlito has been doing awesome these past couple of months. He has not had any more fainting episodes. He has had 2 in the almost 3 months we have had him. Both times he was highly stimulated and excited. But there have been times he hasn’t fainted and has been super excited and active. Carlito has also improved with marking. He doesn’t usually wear a belly band at home but if we go visiting, we will put one on him then. It’s important to make sure he potties in the morning as he has occasional accidents in his kennel. Carlito’s not super fond of his people leaving and will bark at first when we leave but quiets down and is content in his kennel for the workday. Carlito loves car rides and we would recommend that he is kenneled when he is in the car. He gets super excited and bounces around from window to window. He also wants to put his head out of the window, which could be dangerous, so in a kennel is safest for everyone. Carlito loves everyone he meets. He loves to sit on laps or snuggle under your sweatshirt. He has found every window in the house that has a perch for him to look out and he loves to be outside. He likes to sit on the back of furniture if he’s not in someone’s lap or under a blanket too! Carlito has so much love to give and he’s super handsome! He’s ready for his forever family! 8/9/17: Carlito has been with us for about a month now and he is such a fun little dude! He has been very friendly to everyone he has met. He has met a couple of children, but he does not live with any so we are not sure how he would do with active youngsters full time. He loves to perch on the back of the couch or recliner and has found all the spots in the house where he can look out the windows and see what's going on in the neighborhood. Carlito marked a few times since he moved in; this has decreased somewhat since he got neutered. He still wears a belly band most of the time. Carlito took a couple of days to adjust to a new potty schedule and had one accident. It's helpful to keep an eye on him to make sure he goes potty before coming inside. Carlito kennels fairly well. He does tend to bark occasionally throughout the day so he may not be a good candidate for an apartment. Carlito does not chew on things he shouldn't (a big Plus!) He seems to really like to pick up stones and carry them around. We do take them away from him so he doesn't eat them and keep an eye on him when he is in the yard. Carlito also likes to dig a little bit but is redirected fairly well when he is told "no". Carlito doesn't know many commands so we are working on the basics like "sit" and "off". Carlito loves to sit with his human, preferably on their lap. He also loves to burrow under blankets at night and usually sleeps at our feet. Carlito lives with other dogs, most of which are bigger then he is. He gets along with everyone well and will let another dog know if he doesn't feel like playing. He can also be a bit bossy towards our bigger dogs and will chase them around the yard a bit. Carlito is such a sweetheart and a cuddle bug. He does have some personality quirks that his adopter will need to understand and accept about him but he has loads of love to give!

Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Spayed Female, Vaccinations current, Microchip, Diabetic * Donatella was diagnosed as having diabetes. Her foster family works with Donatella to keep this condition under control so she can live a happy life. She will need a forever home committed to keeping her healthy and managing her condition. For more information on diabetes in dogs, please visit the link below: http://pets.webmd.com/dogs/diabetes-dogs-symptoms-treatments-dietary-management Questions: http://www.4luvofdog.org/contact_us.html * Here are links for more info on dogs with diabetes in case it is useful to you. http://www.petdiabetesmonth.com/dog_what_is.asp http://www.vcahospitals.com/main/pet-health-information/article/animal-health/diabetes-mellitus-in-dogs/744 http://www.vetstreet.com/care/diabetes-in-dogs Donatella wants your love! Foster Home Feedback 10/27/17: Donatella is a very unique looking dog. She is a gray and white merle mini Schnauzer. The merle gene is a dilution gene, causing her to have a light coat and one blue eye. She is a very nice, gentle dog. Her favorite activities are tug of war, going for walks outside, cuddling up in her dog bed when she wants alone time and sitting on or near her favorite person, as she enjoys a good ear scratch and belly rub. Donatella has been diagnosed with diabetes over a year ago. Due to this, she does require a special diabetic food from the Vet and 2 doses of insulin per day. The insulin shots are very easy to administer and she tolerates them very well. Also, due to diabetes, cataracts have formed limiting her vision. Donatella is highly adaptable and within a week she was cruising around the house like she lived here forever. Not going to lie, there were a few times that she bumped into a wall or some furniture, but she is a very quick learner. She also takes allergy medication as needed for itchy skin and a joint supplement due to a knee that can slip out of joint (luxating patella) which causes her to limp from time to time. She does require occasional grooming to keep her beard and eyebrows in check. Donatella is both house trained and kennel trained. We had an adjustment period where she was quite anxious when I left her alone, but she seems to be adjusting as she gets used to my daily routine. Diffusing a calming essential oil also seems to help. Donatella is super curious of both my cats and dogs. She does not give them much personal space when they are within her eyesight, which does annoy my dogs—but she also understands their cues and is getting better at backing off. She does get a little jealous when I am giving another dog attention but seems to be getting used to having to share my time with others. I think Donatella would be a great companion dog for someone that is home often or in a home with a companion dog or cat. She seems to be less anxious when she has company. Donatella is such a loving dog. It has been a joy getting to know her the past two weeks. She has so much love and loyalty to give to some lucky family.
