Foster Home Feedback * Journey needs a home with No other Dogs and No kids 2/9/19: Journey is all settled in and has been a great dog. She is a super snuggly dog and prefers to be touching you at all times! Her ideal spot would be on your lap. Journey is an animated dog and is constantly using her paws to get your attention or knock your phone out of your hands if you are ignoring her. She also knows how to entertain herself by throwing her toys in the air and catching them. We have been stuck inside due to the snow and she does just fine with little exercise. She is good at being a lazy bum! Journey is a barker when she sees people outside so we are trying to work on that. She listens well when you tell her 'no'. She also barks when she is in the car and sees people outside. She is a very good alarm system! 1/11/19: Journey has been an easy house guest to have. She has never had an accident and is able to be left out of the kennel with no issues during the day. I have taken her out to my parent's farm and she thinks that is heaven. She can run and run. Journey is respectful of the horses and has had no issues with the multiple dogs on the farm. We have had some doggy friends over and Journey can get pretty snippy over her toys. She corrects well when you tell her no. Journey would love to find her forever family! 11/26/18: Journey has been in my house for a couple weeks now and has done well. Journey aims to please and listens well when you ask her to do something. She is an incredibly smart dog and would benefit from positive reinforcement training classes. Journey is not comfortable around children and is fearful of men. She has done well when taking her out in public, her anxiety to strangers seems to be more when she is in her home. In the past, Journey had been fine with other dogs while outside playing or away from the home. She is also fine seeing other dogs while on a walk and out in public. Journey just doesn't want to share her people or belongings with other dogs and will guard her people, toys, and food towards other dogs. This is why she would do best as the only dog in a home. Journey is potty and kennel trained. She is a goofy dog and will entertain herself by throwing toys in the air and catching them. She loves to play fetch and doesn't seem to mind the snow even though she is from Oklahoma. Journey is such a great dog that is looking for the right home to show her that people are not so scary. Please consider giving this sweet girl a home! 8/18/18: Journey was one of the lucky dogs to make it from Oklahoma to North Dakota. She has been such a nice house guest to have. She is a gentle dog and really just wants attention, but Journey has shown a fear of men. She needs an adopter that is understanding of this fear. Journey is kennel trained and potty trained. She listens well and aims to please. Journey is a quiet dog and I rarely hear much out of her. Get your apps in for this beauty!

    Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 75.00. {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. FOSTER HOME NEEDED Statistics Name: Benjamin Breed: Treeing Walker Coon Hound Age: 3 Years Size: Medium 44 lbs. ~Medium range: 26-60 lbs Adoption Donation: $75 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Neutered Male, Vaccinations current, Microchip, No children, Fenced-in yard required, No other pets Benjamin would just love a forever home! Foster Home Feedback * Benjamin needs a home with No other pets, No children, and must have a Fenced-in yard 1/2/19: Benjamin’s new fosters here and we are delighted to have him in our home! Benjamin is a 3-year old Treeing Walker Coonhound (TWC). Please only consider adding him to your family if you have experience with or knowledge of the hound breed. Benjamin has the very typical Treeing Walker Coonhound temperament; he is very intelligent, easily trainable, curious, and very affectionate. Benjamin has the classic hound nose - he’s curious about any new smell and is easily distracted by scents around him. As a result of being bred for the long chase, hounds like Benjamin can be single-minded and determined once they have picked up a scent. They can be difficult to recall. Once Benjamin is outside, and his nose turns on, HIS EARS TURN OFF! I find it IMPOSSIBLE to recall Benjamin once he’s picked up a scent. He is NOT being defiant at all-this is his nature, his breed. For this reason, Benjamin’s adoptive parents must have a securely fenced yard and never leave him off-leash in an area that is not fenced in. Like most Coonhounds, the Treeing Walker is a high-energy breed who delights in stretching his legs in a good, long run. Benjamin would be an excellent buddy for someone who wants a running companion (on leash) during temperate weather. Romps in the fenced-in backyard, chasing a ball, or playing with his human friends will help to keep him mentally and physically healthy. Hounds are good watchdogs. Benjamin will bark or bay when confronted with strange situations or new people. We allow him slow introductions with any new guest that enters our home. Once he is comfortable with new people, he just goes about his business, mostly napping on his bed. Like most hounds, Benjamin is a pretty vocal dog, with a loud bay. This is especially true if he’s seen or smelled a rabbit or squirrel in our yard. If you’re not familiar with a TWC bay, please google it! He’s typically quiet in the house unless someone comes in the yard/to the door. Hounds are not only ruled by their nose, but by their stomach! Sometimes Benjamin will bay to remind us it’s mealtime. He politely sits for me before I put his bowl down for him. And he actually CHEWS his food! Between meals, I have some toys that I fill with kibble and Benjamin rolls them around with his nose and paws at them to make the kibble come out. This keeps him busy and entertained. Benjamin is very smart! He knows the commands “sit”, “down” and “shake”…for treats of course! Benjamin is completely, and unfailingly potty-trained. When he has to go “potty”, he will go to the door. We do not kennel Benjamin when we leave the house. He is very respectful and has NEVER been destructive. Benjamin is a very affectionate dog. He’s a snuggler and loves to be as close as possible to his “people”. You’ve heard of the “lab lean”?-well Benjamin’s lean is even more impressive! He needs a securely fenced yard where he can sniff all the sniffs he could possibly sniff. If you have the understanding and vitality for this smart, energetic, and loveable guy, then Benjamin would be your cuddle-buddy. He has truly been a joy to foster. 11/8/18: Benjamin is still here and I can’t believe it! He has been a super good house guest. He is completely potty trained and knows his sit, shake and down commands, although he usually gets too excited to go all the way down to the floor. Benjamin loves sunny days laying outside. He still gets excited when people come over so we put him on a leash until he settles down and the guest feels comfortable. 9/25/18: Benjamin has only been with us a short time, but he has been a great guest. He is potty trained and usually very good in the house, however, he is tall enough to help himself to goodies left on the counter. He is very vocal outside. We usually have rabbits that come and go in the yard and Benjamin definitely knows it. When he is hunting for them he does not listen when you call him. I often am out in the yard reminding him it’s time to give the neighbors a break. Benjamin is wary of strangers but we are used to maintaining control of him when company/strangers enter the house. Benjamin is very lovable and is very active. He would love a fenced yard to run and chase critters. To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: .4luvofdog

    Breed: Boxer-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (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: Bizzy Breed: Boxer Mix Age: 2.5 Years Size: Medium 59 lbs. ~Medium range: 26-60 lbs Adoption Donation: $75 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid by cash or check. Other: Spayed Female, Vaccinations current, Microchip, NOT apartment friendly, needs a home with no other pets, No kids, and must have a fenced-in yard Bizzy is very sweet and affectionate! Foster Home Feedback * Bizzy needs a home with no other pets, No kids, and must have a fenced-in yard 1/27/19: I have had Bizzy for about two weeks now. She was super scared and not having very much fun at the shelter. She is doing so much better in my home. Bizzy kennels really well and she hasn't had any potty accidents. She needs and loves some play time every day but also ready for a big snuggle session after a game of fetch. Bizzy would love a big fenced yard to run around in and a nice comfy couch and lap to lay on afterward! Be Bizzy's hero! 10/22/18: Bizzy has come a long way! I am so proud of her! Her barking only consists of when someone knocks on the door or she has a toy in her mouth and wants you to play with her. She has been super friendly and shown no hesitation when meeting new people. Bizzy absolutely loves to cuddle! She will snooze with you all day if you let her. She is also an excellent leg warmer at night in bed. Bizzy knows sit, down, shake and stay (though actually staying we are still working on). She has to sit before she can eat her food, and she has to sit before she goes outside and before she can come back in. She is pretty solid and throws her body around being goofy. Bizzy LOVES being outside. A home with a fenced in yard would be perfect. She just has a lot of energy as she is still young. We are still learning how to walk on a leash; that will take some time. Bizzy would do best as an only dog as she is an attention queen and needs to be the center of her families lives. Whoever adds this absolute sweet pea to their family will be one lucky person! 7/17/18: We continue to enjoy Bizzy’s fun-loving personality and big goofy smile. After getting to know her a little better, we have discovered that she seems to be more shy and cautious around new men. She seems interested in meeting new people but she wants to take her time to make sure they are safe. She has met several of our family members, friends, and neighbors and she has warmed up to them and seems comfortable. Giving Bizzy treats definitely helps win her over! We continue to work on having slow introductions to new men with lots of positive reinforcement. We have discovered that she does not do well in an apartment setting because of all the new people she may encounter in the hallways and it can be a little overwhelming for her. Bizzy has been doing well learning to walk nicely on a leash but she is very strong and gets overly excited if she sees another dog or animal. She’s a social butterfly and just wants to play! She also gets excited when it’s time to get out of her crate or when it’s time to eat. Bizzy is learning that it's polite to sit and wait and not jump up on people. We continue to work on fine-tuning her basic manners and Bizzy is a great student since she is very food motivated and also eager to please! 6/24/18: We have only had Bizzy in our home for 3 days and so far she has been a great house guest! We've found that she will usually bark & growl when she first meets someone new but she warms up quickly, especially if you give her treats! Bizzy had settled right into our family. Bizzy hasn't had any accidents in our home and she is kennel trained. She is always very happy to see us when we come home and her whole body shakes with excitement. Some of her favorite hobbies seem to be playing fetch and chewing bones. Bizzy is a sweet and playful girl! Once she gets to know you, she will be the perfect sidekick!

Statistics Name: Nyx Breed: Jack Russel Terrier Age: 8 Years Size: Small 15 lbs ~Small range: Up to 25 lbs. Adoption Donation: $75 (applicable sales tax included). Adoption fees may be paid with cash or check. Other: Spayed Female, vaccinations current, microchip, Older considerate children (7+) only, No other pets, Needs fenced-in yard **  Nyx qualifies for our Seniors for Seniors Program.  This program places senior dogs (age 8 or older) with senior citizens (age 65 or older) at a reduced adoption fee of $65.00.  If you qualify and are interested in participating in this program, please fill out an application online and type "SENIOR" after your name. Nyx just wants to be your girl and get lots of love and attention. Foster Home Feedback * No other pets, Older considerate children (7+) only, and Fenced-in yard * Nyx is on medication for her allergies, 3 different medications for cardiomyopathy and 1 medication that helps with her anxiety. These medications cost around $140 each month. 12/26/18: Have you been missing the perfect welcome home committee in your life? Feeling sad when you walk in the door and there is no one excited to see you? Well, look no further! Nyx is the perfect dog for you! Nyx is always happy to see you when you walk through the door. Even if you've only been gone for 30 seconds to check the mail! Nyx is so smart; she can do several tricks and I have no doubt she could learn more. She communicates so well. She actually will "remind" me when she needs to take her meds. I think it's about peanut butter "treat" for her. Nyx isn't a cuddler but definitely as a lot of love to give. Unless it's bedtime, then she'll crawl right in the covers with you. Nyx doesn't do well with other pets or small children. She does bark when someone is at the door. A family home with a fenced in yard where she can play will be best for her. 12/18/18: Nyx is very sweet. She communicates so well; she actually will "remind" me when she needs to take her meds. I think she knows when it's about time for her peanut butter treat. Nyx loves to snuggle under the covers at bedtime. She needs a home without other pets and she does bark, so I don't think she would do well in an apartment. All the commotion would stress her out too much. Nyx has a couple of tricks; she can sit, lay down, spin and shake. She is so, so smart! This little sweetie is so special. 10/3/18: Nyx would benefit with a family that has a backyard. She likes to patrol the perimeter and check things out. She can get some exercise herself but would also benefit from someone that will go out and play with her or take her on walks. She needs exercise of some kind. Nyx needs to be in a home with no other dogs or cats or small children. She is perfectly content to hang out where you are but doesn't feel the need to follow you everywhere you go. She is house trained and kennel trained. I would not leave her out loose in the house as I believe this makes her anxious. Nyx doesn't have accidents but if left out she will get into trouble. She does fine in her crate during the day if we have to be gone. She doesn't run into the kennel if you tell her it's time to get in her kennel but she also doesn't fight you when you put her in. She doesn't have accidents in her kennel. Nyx is very loving in her own way. She's not a snuggler, except at bedtime, but shows affection and "hugs" you with her head. It's weird but so sweet. I think she wants to snuggle but just doesn't know how to relax her body. She likes to hang out and watch TV and she snuggles up in bed. She shakes when she is excited but it doesn't seem to be a negative thing, just too much adrenaline. To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: .4luvofdog

Foster Home Feedback * No other dogs 8/30/18: Hi there I’m Candy! I may be 11 ½ years old but you would never believe it with the amount of spunky energy I have left in me. My favorite hobbies are being around my people, fetching.. oh boy, I LOVE to fetch, walks or running along the bike are another favorite past time for me. I need to be the only dog in the house. Other dogs make me nervous and I don’t like the face to face contact, so I would not be a candidate for the dog park or dog daycare. I am friendly with cats and as long as they are dog-friendly with me. I’ve been through numerous dog obedience classes throughout my life so I’m pretty well behaved. I’m potty trained and my foster mom does not need to kennel me throughout the day when she is gone or at night (she just has to make sure my stuff toys are available for me, nice comfortable bed and she leaves the radio on for me). Like I said, I LOVE to be around my people and kids...oh kids are so much fun!! I even perk up when I hear kids playing. But remember, other dogs are not my thing. I’m not a fighter and will ignore them as long as they keep their distance from me or are in a neighbor’s fenced in yard. But if they get too close I will give them my warning. With old age comes a little bit of health issue for me. I suffer from acid reflux so I require over the counter acid reducer tablet twice a day. I also need to be on Salmon food. Right now, my foster mom feeds me Taste of the Wild Salmon which seems to be going well for my sensitive stomach. Adopt me, you'll love me!

Foster Home Feedback * NO Other Pets, NO Children, and Fenced-in yard required 1/1/19: Hobie has grown so much in his time in the rescue. He is becoming more confident and is learning to manage his impulse control issues. As a Pit Bull mix, Hobie is quite the baby in this cold weather. When we go for walks, he likes to have his sweater or winter jacket on, allowing for a more tolerable walk. Hobie continues to be a great snuggler. He loves nothing more than to sit on the couch, curled up in a cozy blanket next to his human, and watch people and their dogs walk by. He still barks at them every once in a while, but once redirected, he pays less attention. To enhance Hobie's profile, I decided to get some professional pictures taken. Hobie was quite the gentleman with the photographer and loved getting all of the attention. He loved being able to strike a pose and show off his signature smile. Hobie holds a special place in my heart and I know he deserves the best home possible. If you are patient, kind, have breed experience, and are looking for a loyal companion, please consider Hobie for adoption. He has been in the rescue for way too long and deserves a forever home. If you are interested in learning more about Hobie, please fill out an application. Hobie wishes you all a Happy New Year! * Thank you to M.Schleif Photography for the updated photos of Hobie 10/21/18: Howdy friends! Hobie here still looking for my forever home! I’ve been with the rescue for about a year now and although they have been treating me really good, I would still like to find my forever home. My foster mom did a 6-week training class with me and I was one of the best dogs there! I learned (and am still working on) stay, touch, heal, and mat! I know, pretty advanced stuff! I’m remembering how much I don’t like the cold. There were a few days here in Fargo where I didn’t want to get out of my cozy bed to go potty, but I did what I had to. My foster mom says I am getting better being around dogs! There’s something I should clarify here: I like to see dogs, sniff them, walk with them, heck I really enjoy playing with them; I just don’t like living with them. I want to be able to come home, grab a bone, and snuggle up with my family. There’s only room for one hound right? Oh, did I mention? I LOVE to snuggle!! There is nothing better than an evening walk in the sunset followed by licking a peanut butter Kong on my dog bed as my foster momma reads her book. I like the simple things in life. Hobie has come a long way from when he first came into the rescue. He is healthier, smarter, and happier than ever before. Hobie deserves a home with a yard where he can play and run and burn some energy. He currently is being fostered in an apartment and is doing great! We see other dogs frequently and Hobie is nothing but a gentleman. (Please note that Hobie cannot live in a home with a tie out—he is fine in an apartment with adequate walks). Hobie is my first foster and I love him so much. He deserves the best home. Help find Hobie his forever home; you would be Hobie's Hero. 10/13/18: I have had Hobie in my home for almost three months now and he has been a truly amazing companion. Spending every day with this love bug has allowed me to get to know his ins and outs and I am consistently awestruck that he has not been adopted yet. Hobie has been with 4 Luv of Dog Rescue for roughly a year now and there has not been a ton of interest in this sweet fella. Hobie is the sweetest, silliest, most people-oriented, and loving dog I have ever met. He just wants to be with his people. There are some misconceptions about Hobie, so if you look at his profile, don't make assumptions. Yes, he needs to be the only pet, but that doesn't mean he can't be around other dogs, he just cannot live with them. Hobie deserves a home with unconditional love and can show him what love truly is. This is my plea, as Hobie's foster mom, to help find this guy a home. Help Hobie find his forever family. 8/8/18: So I have had quite the two weeks! I am settling into my foster home and am loving life! My days consist of walks, sleeping, and eating. I have been getting a lot better at walking on a leash. I get a little over excited when I see other dogs, but I just want to sniff them and maybe even play! One of my favorite things to do is sit out on my foster mom's balcony. She leaves the door open so I can go in and out as I please. I like to sit there and watch the people, cars, and dogs swiftly move past as the sun beats down on my back and the typical Fargo wind blows through my face. Did I mention? I LOVE CAR RIDES! My foster mom and I took a trip to Buffalo River State Park. Something about the drive there was very therapeutic. The 45-minute drive consisted of me sleeping and sticking my head out the window letting my slobber grace the tail end of my foster mom's car. I loved going hiking! There were so many new smells and people to meet. We were only there for an hour before I couldn't take the heat any longer. My foster mom basically had to carry me to the car. I slept for three hours after that trip! I overheard my foster mom say that she would take me hiking again just to tire me out! While I love spending time in my foster home, I know it is only temporary. I have been waiting for so long to have a home of my own. If you or anyone you know is looking for a sweet, affectionate, loyal, goofball, spunky pup like me, I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to set up a meet! 7/22/18: Well hello there! My name is Hobie and I am one heck of a guy! I just got into my new foster home and I am LOVING IT! My foster mom lets me sleep with her, nap on the couch, and even sit on the patio in the nice weather! I have had a rough start as you can see from my previous feedback. I love being in my foster home, but am SOOOOOO ready to enter into my forever home! To give you a little taste of what I am like, here is how my weekend has gone; My foster mom picked me up on Saturday and I was so excited to go for a car ride. There is something about sticking my head out the window and letting my drool fly (onto the cars behind me) that is simply exhilarating. I think I would really like traveling as long as we stop for periodic potty breaks. When I got to my new foster home, I immediately found my toys! Kongs and bones and stuffed animals, oh my! I knew my foster mom wanted to make me comfortable, so she graciously let me consume the bottom half of her bed. Oops... Sundays are my FAVORITE! Sleeping in, sitting on the patio, and letting the wind blow in-between my ears, there is nothing better. While I do need to be the only pet in my forever home, I do enjoy watching dogs walk by when I am sitting on the patio. I don't bark but watch out of curiosity. They seem okay...but, only from afar. I am a really chill dude, as long as I have a good stuffie toy and a lot of snuggle time, I am a happy camper. I'd love to meet you if you'd give me the chance! 5/20/18: I've enjoyed working with Hobie on my building shifts but today my husband and I took him on an outing to Maplewood State Park. He was a rock star hiker and did the 6-mile trail with ease. He wore an easy-walk harness and walked very well with minimal pulling. Hobie seemed to really enjoy the outdoors and all the sights, sounds and smells the park had to offer. I think he would make an excellent companion for a variety of outdoor activities! We encountered several people, dogs, and horses on the trail and Hobie handled himself very well. We would pull him to the side of the trail (which wasn't very wide) and redirect him with treats. He didn't bark and generally just got a little excited/curious about whoever was passing by. We were very impressed with his behavior. Hobie also got a lot of compliments on his good looks. Hobie rode really well in the car and alternated between laying down and looking out the window. I know that Hobie is still waiting for a special home without other animals but if you're looking for one dog, please take a chance on him as he will be an excellent addition to anyone's life! 3/3/18: Hobie is the sweetest pup and the best houseguest someone can ask for. Hobie is an incredibly happy and friendly dog, always willing to greet you with kisses, and he absolutely loves walking on the Concordia campus to greet all the students! As much as he loves to play with toys and go for long walks outside, he's also just as comfortable laying around the house and giving you cuddles. Regardless of the activity, Hobie just wants to spend time with you and share some love. Hobie is still a bit reluctant to be put in the kennel but does great after a little bit of coaxing. That said, he could probably be left out on his own as he has never touched anything I haven't given him. He really is a wonderful houseguest overall and follows the rules well. He is still a young pup who is very food motivated, so some training would be very beneficial for him in the future but is generally such a well-mannered dog. He isn't a huge fan of other animals, however, so Hobie needs to be the only animal in the house. Truly, Hobie is the sweetest dog who just wants a forever home to give him the love and attention that he deserves. If you are looking for a loyal companion who will always be by your side, Hobie is your guy! 2/13/18 Volunteer Feedback: Who doesn’t want to have a smiley, happy pup looking at you with adoring eyes. If that’s you, then Hobie is your man. Hobie walks like a dream on a leash and really has a nice demeanor after he gets a little exercise. He can be a bit jumpy and mouthy at first, but is very treat oriented so training him is really fun. I think a person that is willing to give him some regular exercise, nothing excessive and will spend a bit of time training him will have a such a fun, happy bonded partner. 1/2/18 Volunteer Feedback: Hobie came to the rescue fighting for his life, but he is happy as ever now! He is in good health but could stand to put on a few pounds. Hobie is a pretty easy guy to have around. He's excited to see me when I first get home, he comes out of his kennel full of butt wiggles. He is extra happy when he has a fresh bone to chew on - so far that has been his favorite activity. He also enjoys cuddling on the couch and getting in a good nap while he is there. Hobie has had no accidents as long as I'm home to let him out. Hobie has been friendly with all the people he has met. He is still a young dog that doesn't really know his own size. Once Hobie is through his parvo stage, I would recommend going to some positive reinforcement training classes with him - he is still just a big playful pup, so needs some help with his manners, and responds best when there is a little reward in it for him. Training classes are also a great way to bond with a new dog. Hobie didn't love the kennel at first but has shown a lot of improvement - he does pretty well now, but can be a little vocal about it at times. Hobie probably doesn't need to be kenneled once you trust him around your house, the few times he has been left out he has not bothered anything. He may have an accident if left too long, so it would be best to make sure he is doing well with his potty training before leaving him out. Maybe all the attention he got while he was sick made him a diva - but Hobie has decided that he wants to be the only pet in the home. He is looking to be someone's one and only, but he promises he is worth it! Hobie has already survived parvo to get his second chance at the good life - please consider giving him the home he deserves! Hobie will love you for it.

If you qualify and are interested in participating in this program, please fill out an application online and type "SENIOR" after your name. Huey Lewis is looking for a new woman to be his friend! Foster Home Feedback * Huey suffers from a seizure disorder. He requires daily medication to keep them regulated. Those medications cost about $37.00 per month. An annual blood test is required to make sure that his medications are within a therapeutic level. 12/10/18: Huey continues to evolve! He now LOVES visitors in the home. He lets them pet him and even steals a quick pat on the head away from other animals in the home. He definitely acts more like a cat and has developed into quite the lapdog, however, it’s his own version of one. Everything must be on his own terms, he doesn’t like being picked up; he has to dictate what he will do. He has his routine down and wants to be on my lap, on top of a fuzzy blanket, when I’m on the couch. But if I startle him with a pet on the back that he doesn’t know is coming or if I move suddenly, he is easily startled and jumps off. Huey LOVES being outside, even in winter, however, I still have to hide the leash behind my back and quickly attach it. He’s fine once it’s on though. He also does so well at events and meeting people, but he is so dog-selective that I’d recommend a home with no other animals or maybe one big older dog that leaves him alone. But the more animals around, the more stressed Huey gets. Huey takes some time to get to know, but I think he’s worth the extra effort. So If you can offer a patient and understanding home environment, and love quirkiness, please consider giving this guy a chance! 10/25/18: Huey has officially come out of his shell. He is a unique little guy who acts much more like a cat than a dog. He also has two distinctive personalities; the one at home and the one outside of the house. At home: He doesn’t like to be picked up or cuddled. Huey may sit on your lap if he chooses, but prefers little interaction from the human(s); he will jump up on the couch and find his spot, but if the human moves he’s gone. Once he trusts his human, he does funny jumps and licks at their face and he’ll let them pet him (a little) as long as he knows it’s coming. Huey LOVES to be outside and run around, even when it’s snowing. He seems to love the snow. He doesn’t mind the big dog in the house that leaves him alone, but he doesn’t like the little dog in the house that leaves him alone. So he is definitely dog-selective. Outside the home: Huey LOVES car rides, but that was known right away. He has gone to several adoption events and does great around strangers and other dogs. He even lets strangers hold him as long as they are gentle. There is something about being away from the house that lets him trust more. Huey did have his first seizure at his current foster’s home; this was several months after his last seizure and while on his medication. The seizures aren’t violent, but more subtle where he looks stunned or zoned out; he then needs several hours of rest after. I mention this to be open about what could happen. This is a very manageable issue, but one that his potential forever home should be aware of. Huey will probably never be a conventional lapdog, but he is unique and is looking for a very understanding and patient home who is willing to let Huey be Huey! 8/19/18: Who is this new dog? He has really opened up around the house over the past few weeks, so much so that I don’t even recognize him from when we first met. As always, he has been a rock star on outings and of course, he loves his car rides! We have confirmed, due to a new house guest, that he needs a home with chill animals only as he gets vocal and stressed if there is another diva in the house. Otherwise, Huey is borderline affectionate once comfortable in the home. Any attention is still on his terms, but if you give him space and patience, he will come around. So, if you are patient and have a laid back home environment, consider this guy for your next roommate... but he doesn’t pay rent or do dishes. 7/24/18: Note from Huey: Hi, I’m Huey! The first thing you should know about me is that I LOVE CAR RIDES!!! I mean, it’s the best thing in the world! I get to look out the window and sometimes the window is down a little so I can feel the wind on my fur. It’s really my favorite place ever! But once I get home, no matter whose home, I really want my space. I don’t know what it is about being in a house, but I just need to find a quiet place to relax. I don’t mind people or other dogs as long as they keep to themselves and know that I don’t want to cuddle or play or interact at home; I just want my quiet spot and to go outside sometimes. Just please promise to let me know when we can go on a car ride again! So if you LOVE car rides too, and you don’t mind that I’m not a cuddler, maybe I could come live with you?! Oh, and can we go for a ride in the car now? Note from Huey’s foster: Hi there, Huey is a funny little guy. He’s pretty scared in a new home and the animals around him need to know to leave him be, otherwise, it stresses him out. He isn’t really aggressive, he just growls as a warning and makes it very clear that he doesn’t want to be touched or stared at; but consistent stress will make him react out more. However, once we get in the car, he’s a new dog altogether! He LOVES the car ride and tries to sit on my lap and lets me, and even wants me to pet him. I even took him to the groomer where they said he did great! He even met a human friend in the lobby. The vet visit didn’t go bad either, he was pretty good. But once we got back home, he goes back to not wanting to be touched and needing his space. I’ve had him for a few weeks now and we’ve made some progress. Before, I couldn’t get within a couple feet before he’d growl, but now I can give him treats by hand, but he’s not ready for me to pet him at home (but I can in the car). My own dog is big and pretty laid back and gives Huey his space; so now my dog can walk closer to Huey than before – still no direct interaction though. Huey started to have small seizures at his previous foster home so he is currently on a small dose of Phenobarbital; he hasn’t had any seizures while with me. The vet said his bloodwork is good, so he needs to stay on the meds. He takes the pill pretty well when it’s buried in liverwurst; which is sometimes all he will eat. He can be a bit picky on food, but when he’s really hungry (and relaxed) he will eat all his food. Huey is mostly potty trained and goes outside well to do his business. But he has had a couple of accidents while we’ve been working out our schedules. I have no doubt that it’s only due to an adjustment in the home. Huey’s ideal home is one that will be very patient with him. I think he will come more and more out of his shell, but it may take several months for him to be as comfortable in the home as in the car; it really is that drastic of a difference. His perfect home would have either no other pets or very very laid back pets that will avoid his space. I don’t believe Huey would do well with kids at all and really would do best in a less active home. Again, he isn’t actively aggressive, but he may react if pushed. Actually, his completely ideal home may be on the road in an RV with a laid back person or two – he really loves those car rides!! Please give this guy a chance. He doesn’t make a good first impression, but building trust over time with a frightened dog can be a very rewarding experience. 4/30/18: Huey was a pretty grumpy old man when he was surrendered to the rescue, but it turns out he had a good reason. Not only did he have Lyme's and Anaplasmosis, but he had five really bad teeth. Those conditions had combined to cause him to essentially quit eating. Now that his pain and dental anguish have been addressed, he is becoming a much happier dude. He's still pretty skinny, but he's showing up and making an effort to eat at mealtimes and snack times. Huey also likes bedtime. While he remains fairly aloof throughout the day, he loves to sleep on top of me. I'm hoping that phase passes as he gains some weight, both for his sake and mine. As I write this, he is staring at me and trying to mind-meld me into going to bed, at which point he will become playful and affectionate. He wakes up that way as well and makes it hard to get up for work because he's being so darn cute. With three other dogs in the house, Huey is learning that the best way to get attention is not by growling, but by being a good pack member. It has taken more than six weeks, but he is figuring out that no one here means him any harm. His trust issues may mean it will take time for him to adjust to a new home. I'm sure he would prefer to be an only pet in the household, and he would do best in a calm environment. I have not kenneled Huey at all and he is not destructive. He spends most of his time in my room on the bed. That, too, may change when he feels better and more social. He has had no accidents in the house. Huey is good about relaying that he needs to go out - usually by sitting up. Huey's not much of a barker, and I was pleased to discover his bark is not a piercing yap but is more resonant and restrained. Huey enjoys riding in the car, but must be persuaded that he cannot sit on the driver's lap and have the window rolled down. That makes him kind of grumpy, too, but he does come to accept that the passenger air vent is better than nothing. As Huey continues to regain his strength, it will be fun to see who he becomes. He will need love and patience through that process, but the end result will probably be as beautiful as he is. To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: .4luvofdog

Other: Neutered Male, Vaccinations current, Microchip, Older/Considerate Children only (12+ yrs old or older), Fenced yard required, No other dogs Bruno is looking for someone to teach him and love him! Foster Home Feedback * Older/Considerate Children only (12+ yrs old or older), Fenced yard required, No other dogs 1/13/19: We were fortunate over the holidays to take a couple weeks of vacation and Bruno was in his element. He truly just wants to be with his people, all the time. You will not find a more loyal friend. Now that we are all back at work and school, he gives me the saddest puppy dog eyes when I tell him he has to stay in the morning when we leave the house. My husband does, however, work from home one or two days a week and Bruno loves nothing more than to race into the office, sit on his dog bed and wait for his treat before snoring away the rest of the day listening to conference calls. Bruno continues to love walks and looks very handsome in his winter sweater attire. And although he is big and strong, he walks great with his Easy Walk harness and has figured out paying attention to his walking partner earns him treats along the way. Bruno has overcome a lot since he came to live with us and it has been wonderful to see how he has blossomed. Love, kindness, and consistency can make such a difference. We adore this big lug and if we weren’t committed to fostering more dogs, he wouldn’t ever leave. That said, we know his perfect forever home is out there and want to do everything we can to ensure he finds it. 12/9/18: Bruno is dreaming of his very own forever home for Christmas! (See picture) 10/2/18: This sweet, lovable hunk is still looking for his forever home. Bruno is very smart and motivated to please, which is very helpful as we continue to work with him on manners and everything that comes with living the good life. Bruno does really well with our 3 boys but his best home would be with older/considerate children because he doesn’t always understand his size and strength and when he gets excited he can get mouthy. Our boys know if they are going to roughhouse that it must be when Bruno is not around. He is the perfect armrest on the couch for the many hours of Fortnite play, which is Bruno’s go-to spot most afternoons and evenings. Although Bruno crates like a dream, we leave him to roam the house and he’s never touched a thing. No shoe chewing, toy destroying, counter surfing for this fella. Only the perfect house guest that is respectful of your things. His face lights up when a new Nylabone shows up in the house! Bruno lives with our resident 12-year-old lab who he adores, but we’ve been unable to recreate that magic with other dogs. We regularly joke that Teddy would be Bruno’s only dog friend on Facebook. I like to think of Bruno is an awkward teen that doesn’t understand typical doggie behaviors and does not do well with other dogs. He has been fine with dog savvy cats and pretty sure he could live with chickens, hamsters, gerbils, etc. as he has zero prey drive. Bruno gives our lab the strangest look when he goes berserk over birds and squirrels. Bruno’s favorite things continue to be going for walks, car rides and snuggling with you on the couch and being anyplace his people are. This summer at the lake he preferred to be by our side or be the resident porch dog and enjoy the summer breeze. 6/8/18: Bruno spent his first memorial weekend at the lakes and it was fun to watch him experience things for the first time. Things we learned: Loons are clearly up to no good! Pontoon rides are scary at first, however, after acquiring your sea legs they can be enjoyable. Being a natural swimmer doesn’t necessarily translate to enjoyment. City living is ok but country lake life is where it’s at. 2/22/18: Bruno is really a fantastic foster! He is excellent at kenneling when we leave for work - never a peep out of him. He sleeps on a dog bed at the foot of our bed or on our couch in the living room but his favorite place to sleep, if we let him, would be with our 8-year-old. One of Bruno’s favorite activities is going for car rides! He is an excellent partner to run errands with and I rarely go anyplace without my faithful foster companion. Bruno also loves going for walks! His whole body literally smiles when you get the leash out. After a mile or so walk, all he wants to do is snuggle with you and take a nap! Bruno continues to be great with all the new kids and women he meets and is doing better with meeting new men. He still barks at first but warms up quickly. Honestly, I think Bruno is a guy’s guy as he seems to gravitate to men once he trusts them. He adores both my husband and father and if push comes to shove, he prefers their company over his foster mom’s, much to my chagrin. Bruno did spend last weekend with a dog savvy cat so I think he could live with a cat once they had a slow proper introduction. Bruno has so many endearing qualities and one of our favorites is the thump-thump of his tail when you talk to him. View the short video in his profile to see for yourself! Please consider adopting Bruno - he has so much love to give and really deserves to have a family of his own. 12/28/17: Bruno has been in our home for a couple weeks now and we’ve come to adore him. He’s 75 pounds of love that is slowly learning the world is not such a scary place. Bruno does very well with our 3 boys and is very gentle for his size. He does, however, love to hand out kisses and personal space is non-existent in his world. We are unsure how he does around cats. Bruno loves to go for walks and literally bounces the first 10 feet of each walk. He’s is very strong and is still learning how to walk nicely on a leash. We have come to learn that Bruno has some fear of men. He is totally fine with women and kids, but men seem to scare him. He’s great with my husband and once he learns that a new man he meets is not scary, he starts to warm up. We are continuing to work on this with slow introductions to new men with lots of positive reinforcement. His new forever home will need to continue to give him the love and patience he deserves. 12/5/17: Bruno is such a beautiful, playful, goofy guy. His eyes will melt your heart with one glance! He loves to run and play, is so incredibly sweet, and loves to give kisses. Today we decided to just hang out on the couch and the head scratches put him right to sleep. When Bruno woke up, he looked up at me and gently licked my nose. He is definitely a keeper. Please give him a chance to live happily ever after in your home To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: .4luvofdog

Other: Spayed Female, Vaccinations current, Microchip, No other pets, Older/Considerate Children * Virginia is looking for a home and person to be all hers! Virginia's 3 Minutes of fame! goo.gl/y2A25Q Foster Home Feedback * Virginia has had a history of skin allergies, but is currently free of any allergy symptoms and currently takes no medications. 1/3/19: I am so proud of Miss Virginia!! Today she was an ambassador for the rescue as she accompanied me to Discovery School to meet a group of over 100 eighth graders who tied blankets for use at our shelter and for dogs in foster homes. And WOW did she do great!! I wasn’t sure how she would react to all the noise and activity of kids passing by and gathered close to meet her, but she was a rockstar! I am so proud of this beautiful dog who has come so far and waits so patiently for an adopter. 12/4/18: Virginia is calmly waiting for her very own Christmas miracle...a loving forever home! (See picture) 9/25/18: Virginia has had such a good summer, spending most of her time at the lake with me. She continues to be relaxed, calm and super easy. We went for many walks, pontoon rides and played lots of her style of combination fetch/soccer. Although she has no interest in being in the water by choice, she does know how to swim. She is perfect in a boat, just as she is in vehicles. It amazes me that this wonderful dog is still waiting for her forever home after being in the rescue for two whole years! Other than needing to be an only pet, this beautiful girl really has no flaws. Virginia is good around kids too. It would be ideal if Virginia's forever home would have a wood or plastic fence (she is smart and can climb chain link), but I think if an adopter is a committed walker, she could be exercised sufficiently like that. We were unable to take long walks at the lake because there are people who leave their dogs off leash, but when we were in town we walked the bike path in Moorhead along 20th Street and out to Menards or around MState Technical College. She met bicycles and runners and other walkers nicely. Positive reinforcement and clicker training help her to stay focused. I love this beautiful girl and so hope someone will soon give her a place in their home and heart...forever. If you continue reading about her maybe my hope will become reality! 6/28/18: Miss Virginia has great sea legs...as usual, she was calm as a cucumber on her maiden pontoon voyage. Virginia wasn’t interested in going in the lake, but has no fear of the dock or jumping into the pontoon. Seriously, this girl is such a great companion!! Please consider giving her a place in your heart and home! 6/22/18 Volunteer Feedback: I got the pleasure of having Virginia stay at my house for one night last week. What a peach! She settled in so quickly, it was like she had been living with me since she was a puppy. No accidents in the house, no barking, no tearing up anything she wasn't supposed to, and kenneling wonderfully. Virginia is so very well behaved and with her allergies seemingly disappearing, she is basically the perfect dog. She still needs to be an only pet, but with all the love she has to give, why would she want to be shared? I know Virginia's foster mom will keep her in tip-top shape mentally and physically until you finally decide that Virginia is the dog for you (she is, trust me)! You won't regret it!! 6/11/18: Good things are happening for Virginia, or Ginny as I call her. Her allergies are non-existent and she is no longer eating expensive prescription food! Her skin is clear, no "itchies" at all...and her coat is thick and shiny. She is such a happy and content girl in my home. So patient and quiet...eats well, kennels well or I can leave her loose in the house when I leave, although I do have to put anything edible up high or in the cupboard after the 'butter' incident...Turns out she has a pretty tough stomach as eating an entire stick didn't even give her an upset tummy. Ginny is one of the easiest fosters I have ever had. She eats well, doesn't ever beg, rarely does she bark, walks like a champ and now is learning how to play fetch! Until recently, she just played with her favorite ball by herself in the backyard...pouncing on it and making it pop up so she can chase it. Very cute!! I have big flower beds in my fenced yard and she knows not to go in them. She is smart and follows my instructions. I love to do obedience training with Ginny as she is so eager to please. Warm weather has us at the lake and I have been amazed at how easily she transitioned to a totally different home. She remains her same calm self. I do a lot of gardening there and I have her on a tie out near where I am working. She just lays quietly watching me. We finally got the pontoon on the lift yesterday so I am anxious to give her a first boat cruise next weekend. Stay tuned! I do hope someone will give Miss Ginny a loving forever home soon, as she has waited so long. Even though she needs to be the only pet in the home, she is not aggressive when she sees dogs from a distance or when she sees them while riding in the car. Speaking of cars, she is spot on P-e-r-f-e-c-t in them. She is my buddy delivering weekly meals on wheels and never even sniffs the basket and cooler full of delicious and aromatic meals! Please consider giving this sweet, smart, calm and loving dog a place in your heart and home. 4/6/18 Volunteer feedback: For the last few weeks, I have had the pleasure of fostering this sweet, distinguished, and beautiful girl while her permanent foster mama took care of a previous rescue. First, I must tell you that I have mobility issues. I can't walk unaided, and Virginia is a powerful girl. She does need a firm hold when walking her, but she responds very well to correction and is very food motivated, but never food reactive. If it weren't for MY walking issues, I am quite sure this sweetheart would have found her forever home with me. Fortunately for me, the dedicated rescue volunteers stepped up, literally, and made sure Virginia got her daily walks. She has been a lovely house guest, learning my new routine, when and where to do her business, eat, and puts up with me recycling my wardrobe to see her all prettied up. Virginia travels beautifully in the car, visits my grown-up family in Grand Forks with reciprocal delight, and looks for me to ask permission to go outside & to eat her kibble. She has a loud bark and seemed to be growing protective of me, but we quickly remedied any issues by having her greet new visitors outside, where her tail wags & thumps, and she wiggles with a few "hello" barks thrown in. Virginia loves to give kisses, is a champion snuggler, and goes with my flow. I was worried it would be a big adjustment for her to get used to my routine, my house, my walker/crutches, and none of these proved true. Please consider giving Virginia a permanent home. You won't regret it, and I will truly miss her. But, I will look forward to seeing your pictures...because this is one girl whose sweetness you just have to keep trying to capture on camera. 1/6/18 Volunteer Feedback: Can’t tell you how happy I am to have this marvelous girl in my home, even if it means crating and rotating with Fetty and my little dog. Virginia is such a good girl and today I left her unkenneled alone in the house while Fetty and my little guy went to the Vet...and she was PERFECT!! She remains totally relaxed and happily content, separated by only a gate or wire kennel. Seriously, Virginia is a perfect guest: eats well, kennels perfectly, no accidents, doesn’t even bark when strangers come to my home; And the only time she has ever barked is when she goes outside to potty and just has to let me know she does have a voice and is happy it is warm enough to make a running lap around the backyard before heading back to her favorite end of the couch. Virginia is truly a gem of a dog! To view additional dogs available for adoption, please see our website: .4luvofdog

Foster Home Feedback 11/12/18: Lil pumpkin has been with us for about 3 months and I would say it has taken about that long to start to see her true personality. She has had 3 surgeries to remove all of her teeth and a few tumors. She eats food softened with water, but not having teeth does not seem to have slowed her down. She has a great appetite and gets a little pushy when it’s time to eat. Punky has seemed to prefer men over women. If given the choice, she will sit in her foster dad’s lap and follow him around when he is home. If he’s not home, she will settle for foster mom’s lap. She is potty trained but it is helpful to supervise her outside as she will try to sneak in before going potty. She has had a few accidents in the house but again, making sure she goes potty before coming in is helpful with this. Pumpkin isn’t so excited about being kenneled and she will bark in her kennel. She may not be the best fit for an apartment as she tends to bark at feeding time, in her kennel and random other times such as when we go out to the garage or outside without her. She gets along great with other dogs but does not prefer to play. Pumpkin’s very into her favorite spot on the back of our sofa, napping or watching over the rest of the house. Pumpkin does not seem to like sudden movements or loud noises. Small children would be too much for her most likely. She has some difficulty in the car; we think she hasn’t really been in a car much. She does not like to be kenneled in the car, but kenneling her is the safer option. If she is not kenneled, she tends to climb all over and is not generally safe. Punky is a sweet, snuggly tiny little gal. She is so enjoyable and would make a great companion in a quiet home, preferably someone who is home more often than not.
