Geena - IN FOSTER HOME

Geena - IN FOSTER HOME
Geena is protective, and she also has a defined preference for females. Geena came to us as an out-of-state stray. She is strong-minded, but young and malleable. Very fun-oriented, she has cute antics and is delightful to watch. Geena is an attractive dog, with very nice markings. The best placement for her will be in a household where she will largely be with the person or persons familiar to her -- not a lot of "stranger-traffic" and no children. UPDATE: Geena is currently being fostered and is receiving training and special attention from her foster mom!

Sammy2

Sammy2
Sammy is a Mountain Feist, a hunting breed, who came to us as an owner-surrender. He is 1 year old, approximately 20 lbs and is a bundle of good-natured energy. Sammy is crate-trained and walks very well on leash. (Fence and leash are requirements.) Upon his arrival here, we tested Sammy for heart-worm and, sadly, he tested positive. The good news is that his treatment went very well and is now complete. So, Sammy is back in swing and is ready to tackle the world again with his happy, healthy, full-of-life attitude!

Simon

Simon
Simon is back. This little man was adopted out in 2011, but has some behavioral problems that will require patience and love. You see, Simon came from a hoarding background. He is now learning a lot about life and freedom and, while the 3 other dogs that arrived with Simon from the same hoarding situation have adapted quite well to their new loving homes, it looks like Simon needs more time. He would like a home with structure and lots of positive attention. He is young, at just over a year old, and seems happiest in the presence of other dogs.

Bailey

Bailey
Bailey was born here to a pregnant mother rescued from an out-of-state shelter prior to being euthanized. She was adopted out as a puppy and is now a 5 year old. She was returned, within her first year, following reported aggressive behaviors toward another household pet. She was also reported to have growled at her owner when verbally corrected for her behavior with the other pet. In our care, Bailey has exhibited good patterns with other dogs and with people. She has attended training and is receiving further socialization. Bailey is considered adoptable to the right person: a dog- savvy individual, who is very familiar with the Shar Pei breed and will be dedicated to training and socialization.

Jacob

Jacob
Jacob is approximately 1 1/2 years old and came to us through out-of-state foster. He is probably house-trained, current on all vaccinations and is neutered. This great-looking, dark brindle dog is really good with other dogs. With people, he is shy and likes a predictable environment, but warms up nicely once a bond is established. He has a strong sensitivity to his surroundings, so he is currently receiving a lot of socialization experiences and exposure to new things, to which he is responding in positive ways!

Murphy

Murphy
This little man's innocent, "who me" expression will bring a smile to your face! He is a high-energy, "Dennis-the-Menace" delight, but his happy face doesn't reflect his near-miss from an unhappy ending in a high-kill shelter in Missouri. Murphy is around 1 year old, good with dogs and older kids. He's about 25 lbs. He is puppy-style unruly and will require lots of training and patience, but he's worth it!

Pierre

Pierre
Pierre just came to us from a hoarding situation and so much wants to find his new home! His coat had to be shaved down, but looks as if it's going to come in thick and beautiful. He is good-natured and loving, full of personality and very desirous of affection. He will need structure and individualized attention/training. Pierre is under 3 years old.

Wolfie

Wolfie
Wolfie was born at Annie's Orphans, to a pregnant mother who was accepted from an out-of-state shelter prior to being euthanized. He was adopted out as a baby along with his sister Bailey. He is 5 years old and was returned within the first year of his life for joint (with his sister) aggression toward another household pet. Additionally, Wolfie develops a strong bond with a person and has shown protective/guarding behaviors when other people approach the primary individual. Adoption is a possibility to only the right individual who has knowledge of the breed and of handling challenging behaviors in dogs. The necessary living arrangement would include a quiet setting with a solo person.

Clancy

Clancy
Clancy has returned to our shelter: He was adopted out as a puppy and -- now, three years later -- was returned due to injuring a small dog living nearby. Clancy is believed to be a mix of Shepherd and Carolina Dog, but also looks as if he may have some degree of wolf included in the mix. Due to the reason for his return, there is the question of how he might behave with small dogs, in general; but at our facility, he has seemed receptive. The same receptivity has been true of cats upon initial testing. We will be looking for a home with no small children. Clancy is very friendly and engaging with people and walks great on leash (but is evasive with being leashed-up, a behavioral issue around which he's currently receiving training). He is a beautiful, regal-looking guy of red-sable and white coloration.

Tyson

Tyson
Tyson is a German Terrier, with true-to-breed traits. He is very adoptable and likes kids -- but needs to be the only dog on the home-front, as he is aggressive with most dogs (a few exceptions apply). He will need a job and ample exercise, as well as a secure yard. Tyson is between 6 1/2 and 7 years old and came from a high-kill, out-of-state shelter.
