Hello, I'm part of what they are calling the A Team from South Carolina. My brothers and sisters and I were surrendered to the shelter in South Carolina, we don't know why????    We are the typical puppies, we love to romp and play, eat then take a power nap. Then it's a repeat of the same. It won't be long before we will be growing like weeds. Won\\\\\\\\'t you be the one who will watch us grow, show us what a real home is like, take us to school to learn those things called sit, stay, wait....Update from foster mom: Aahaim, who we have nicknamed 'Leroy' is growing fast. He is up to 17 pounds now. He is in a foster home with 5 other big dogs and can run with the big dogs!  He loves his pack! He already knows how to "sit" and "down." His is getting crate trained and potty trained. He absolutely loves,loves,loves to play and will keep you laughing with his puppy antics.

  • Sex: Female

  • Tag Number: 2016-056



Update: Abby is a very food movtivated girl, she picks up tricks very quickly, very eagger to please.  She does need alot of training, but this shouldn't be hard to do with her.  During the adoption event on 1/22/17 she met several dogs while on a leash did rather well.  She enjoyed people paying attention to her, giving her treats, If you are the home that is active willing to work with her she will be a fantastic pup. A video from the adoption event: https://youtu.be/ISkSCSL5GFw

Abby is about 50 pounds of spitfire. She arrived from a North Carolina shelter on Saturday, happy to be out of that state and happy to be the newest foster with Promises Animal Rescue. She is probably about a year old and is still very much a puppy in her attitude and demeanor, but she's a pup who grew up tough. She can a bit overly defensive in her meeting with new dogs, especially if she's in a crate or on a leash, but she met all of the dogs around here without difficulty. Maya set her straight about who's in charge the moment I had my back turned. Lesson learned, no problem. Abby spent the night in a crate in the office between Sparky and Taz and seemed fine with that.

My name is Alley. I came from down south with my brother and sisters. My mom is a german shepherd but I did not get to meet my daddy. My little ears are trying to stand up already, so my foster mom says I look like a little german shepherd already. I’m only about 6 weeks old but feeling better now with all the good food I have been eating. I love to play, eat and sleep.  Give me a little more time and I can be your best fur friend walking in the park, going for rides, playing with toys, and learning so many new things you can teach me

Meet our little southern belle, April! She is one of three pups who came to Promises from Dillon, SC via the generosity and ace flying of Pilots N Paws. It's been about a week since her arrival, and she has started to settle in nicely with her foster family. April would be at your side every moment if she could. She aims to please and is a very smart little girl. She is still young of course, and has a ways to go, but we have been working on potty training and basic commands like sit, stay, come, and down.  She does well in the crate and the car. Her favorite activities include chasing you around the dog park, chewing her rawhide, and attempting to play with the cat, despite his many protests. We would love for her to go to a home with older children and a yard. April requires lots of attention and exercise. Her future family must be willing to attend training with her so that she can continue learning proper manners.

I'm a loveable puppy, from what I hear is that I'm very smart.  I don't know what house training is about but I'm sure I will learn real quick if you have the time to train me.  I'm looking so forward to learning new things, I really like treats, so treat training sounds like a really cool thing.

Joey is an extremely smart dog and that doesn\\'t even begin to describe how awesome he is. He is great with our 10 month old baby, Joey let's our son crawl on him, stand on him, play with his tail and ears. Joey could care less and give him lots of kisses. Even though he does have blue heeler in him he has a surprisingly moderate energy level and no prey drive. We had a neighbors cat come over to the house and Joey could care less about her. However, Joey is scared of moving vehicles. He barks at bikes and lays down when cars go by on walks.4-26-15 update Update on Joey, He is doing a lot better with cars going by on walks and is getting used to strollers and bikes along with carts at the pet stores, but he isn't barking anymore, but does show some nervousness. I have been taking him to work with me and he gets along well with the horses on the ranch and doesn't try to chase them. He did bark at them at first, but settled down once we got up close and he got to sniff them. I think Joey would do great in a home with someone with good pack leader skills and a doggy friend and of course kids! He loves kids!!!! He does well within our pack of smaller dogs he is very gentle with them and learning the ropes of being a good house dog.

Bella is still a bit hand shy, but she's sweet and friendly, and she's very good with the puppy. Bella has a penchant for chewing shoe laces and has already destroyed a few, but not the shoes themselves. She will also steal food off the table if given half a chance. She's a good girl but needs to learn some house manners. She's really pretty good indoors, though, and she crates without a problem. Bella is really good with other dogs, loves to play with the current puppy in the home as well as others. Bella does need to put on some weight. We will update this as her foster dad gets to really know her.

Poor Blaze lost everything when his family lost their home.  After being turned into the shelter, he gave up hope.  He is now out of the shelter and in a wonderful foster home where he is loving the life again.  He needs to put on some weight.  Foster mom reports that he is such a cool dog, he is very vocal at trying to tell you what he wants, like you really understand it.  Barks to go outside, barks to play and on.  He has great house manners, fully house trained, just adores people.  He is good with dogs of all sizes and is even good with cats as reported by the shelter.

Wow oh wow is he a fun dog to have, he is great with other dogs, loves people of all sizes.  He has some training in spanish but is learning the english commands.  Given his size and engery we would recommand a home where the kids are older so he doesn't knock them down.

Hi, I'm Bonnie. I'm a smart, outgoing and lovable 3 month old female german shepherd mix.  I love to pay with toys, my brother and foster dog siblings!  I am currently working on house and crate training.  I came into the rescue, on November 13, so my foster mom is still getting to know my personality.  If you'd like to meet me, I will be attending local adoption events.

My name is Brent. I am a very loving boy that likes to cuddle with my human. I currently live with another dog and 2 cats. I like to play with my foster brother and sometimes I try to play with the cats. My foster mom has taught me some tricks like sit, paw, speak, and lay down.  I will go to my crate if my humans are going out or going to sleep at night. I like car rides but I will talk to you the entire time.  I do have a little problem called submissive peeing. This means that anytime I am feeling threatened I will pee. I also like to lick the sofa. I am looking for my forever home with a family that will show me lots of love.

Bruno is a very sweet and handsome boy. He has a pretty mellow and easygoing personality- typical for a big boy who loves to eat. When he first came to my home, he was very scared. For the first couple days the only ones in my family he was comfortable with were my 11 year old daughter, my dog and my cat. He follows my dog (Koda) everywhere and is trying to get my cat (Martha) to play with him. After having him for a little while and bringing him around more people, he has defiantly come out of his shell. He loves to cuddle and play. He loves chew toys, sticks, and being chased in the back yard.

Bruno is very smart and doing well with potty training. He is still having some accidents but everyday has improved. He seems to really want your approval. Bruno would very much benefit being with another dog and that wants to play!

Buster is a super happy puppy, who enjoys life to the fullest.  He enjoys playing with other dogs continuously, or if there is no dog around he will keep himself entertained with his toys.  Buster is the type of puppy that will need to be kept socialized with other dogs and people.  Buster is still working on house training, but is totally crate trained with no accidents.   He is a very friendly guy who has a lot to give to a family who will put the time into training and socializing.

Butterfinger is just like most puppies fully of energy wanting to play with everyone. He is a quick learner, he learned sit and paw in one day.  He is a very curious puppy, he has no fear.  He has been sleeping thru the night without an issue.  House training has been doing great, he is really picking up on this. 

Water, oh boy does he enjoy water, both drinking and making a mess along with playing in the water.

Come out to see Butterfinger soon at the adoption events

Hello Everyone, I'm Caden, my mommy says that I'm the cutest little thing who has so much personality.  Currently I'm NOT available to go anywhere except to the vets office, I'm having some medical problems that are being worked with.  I'm hoping that I will be able to come out to meet everyone someday soon.  Oh by the way my first two days here I've spend one day at the emergency room, the second day I was baby sat by some wonderful vets at Caring Hands in Bristow.  As you can imagine my medical bills are starting to rack up. If you are able to help sponsor me or even donate toward my care I'm sure the rescue would greatly appreciate this.  If I don't see you before Thanksgiving I wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Charlie is such a sweet heart, very petit, fun loving little and I mean little girl.  She is great with other dogs, kids and people.  Poor baby was abandoned after a house fire with 4 other dogs tucked away in the woods with no food or water in 95 degree heat for several days. 

If you are looking for a smaller girl who will want to be with you all the time then Charlie is your girl.  Sadly she is heartworm positive, she will be receiving her treatment 1st week in August.

Hey there! I'm Chase, and boy would I love to be your best friend. I love bouncing around inthe yard, "chase"-ing leaves or my sister, Zuma. I'm doing really well learning where and where NOT to go to the bathroom and I don't mind my crate(as long as I have some snacks in there.) I'm pretty young and still learning my manners and would really enjoy having an active family to play and grow up with. Once approved and interested please contact my foster mom at gsd4kiba@gmail.com

Claus(pronounced "claws") came to the rescue as an owner surrender, due to relocation. He is still very much a puppy and will adjust easily to new surroundings and a new owner. He is still crated when away, since at his age mischief is his favorite game. He walks well on a leash with a strong leader, no pulling and no leash reactivity. He is a rough-houser and vocal pup with other dogs and very attached to his humans. He would do well in a home with someone who works from home or away for less than 4 hours. Best to pair with a female dog, cat, or younger puppy. He is good with male dogs as well, but is at the age where he is testing his limits. Claus is very good motivated, intelligent and eager to learn. Training with Claus would establish a positive leader- follower role with him and solidify a strong bond with the new owner. He has medium energy and will benefit from a daily walk. He also enjoys being outside almost to a fault. He may take his time with potty breaks to have a little extra time outside. Claus is an incredibly cheerful and loving boy, who will offer nothing but affection to any person who is lucky enough to adopt him. If you have any other questions or inquiries on Claus please contact her foster gsd4klb@gmail.com or Promises Rescue.

Hi, I'm Cleo !!!

I love you, and you, oh and you too!!! I'm a hugger and will gladly take a hug from you anytime you want to give them.  Don't leave me alone just yet in the house.  I'm so lonely and I just want to be with you or have a little company.  I get so scared that you won't come back.  I'm still pretty young and will grow out of this fear, but I need a little help to get there.  I also looove food, or treats and will "sit" if you ask me.  Well ,,,,in between hugs that is.  I love other dogs and playing and especially love kids.  I haven't been around cats, but they don't bother me from a distance, and I know I shouldn't chase other animals outside.  I still need to gain a little weight, so my foster mommy is feeding me 3 times a day,,,, no complaints here!!! I'm healthy and ready for my new home.  Just remember what I said about hugs.

Cole is about a year and seven months old. He had been adopted out from the shelter as a puppy. It sounds like some changes occurred in the owner's life, the dog went to live in the country with his parents, and ended up back at the shelter. Young shepherds between one and two years of age are not uncommon in shelters. People get them as pups thinking they will automatically grow into the well-trained dog of their dreams. That is a dream. In reality, shepherds, and probably all dogs, go through a period not unlike a human child's teenage years. They can be rambunctious, rebellious, and just plain obnoxious. In the case of shepherds, those characteristics and their size often gets them into trouble, or people just decide they are more trouble than they are worth. That's when they get dumped, or in this case, returned.

Cole wasn't doing well at the shelter. His pent up energy combined with his big bark and lack of manners didn't make him highly adoptable, and it was difficult to judge the "real dog" in that environment.

This boys name is Commando. He's been living in a small outdoor pen. He hopped right into the crate in my van. I brought him home and put him in a crate in the kitchen. He's not housetrained and has never lived indoors, until now. I let him meet Trooper, Max, and Maya from inside the crate, and then put him outdoors with Max and Maya. He seems to be very good with other dogs. He will be two years old in February. He weighed in at 97 pounds today; he's bigger than he may appear in pictures, and he's very strong. We stopped at the vet on the way home to drop off his records and get his weight. I'd say he's a no-go with cats from what I saw from his meeting the cats in the lobby. He seems to know some basic commands like sit and stay, which made it fairly easy to take pictures of him once we got home. Commando is fitting in very well around here. He has hiked with Maya, met everyone, and played with some of them. He's trying to figure out everyone's personality and play style. Max confused him. He and Hunter only overlapped for about a day, but Hunter tried to initiate play. Everyone seems fine with him. He has been spending most of the day in the dog yard with Theo, Max, and/or Trooper, but he now spends nights indoors. I have to push his butt into the crate sometimes, but he doesn't fuss, bark, or otherwise object to it once he's in. He seems to like indoors, actually, because when I take him from the dog yard on a leash, he pulls me directly to the door of the house. He's a little mouthy when he gets really excited playing, but an exaggerated yelp makes him back right off.He has apparently been on a diet of exclusively canned food, so he's not yet accepting my dry food as "his food" but that will change. He sees everyone else eating it, and he samples it, but he hasn't learned to eat all the food in the bowl when it's in front of you. Walking away results in losing food to another dog, or me picking it up. He had been an only dog so he didn't need to eat all at once like they do around here.In short, this is an awesome dog.

Hi there, my name is Cookie I am a seven (7) year old spayed Anatolian Shepherd mix.  I am super friendly, playful and totally in love with tennis balls.  I enjoy the outdoors but am just as happy lounging around the house with my foster mom.  I walk well on my leash, I am crate trained and housebroken. My foster mom no longer uses my crate since my house manners are impeccable.  I know some commands like sit, down and come.  I love car rides, belly rubs and playing come and get it with my foster mom.  I was recently diagnosed with Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI) which is currently being managed with medical therapy.  Even with EPI, I can have a normal life, my routine is very simple and only requires two (2) teaspoons of enzymes sprinkled and stirred on my dry food twenty minutes before being fed.  My foster mom usually preps my food before our walks so that I can eat when we return.  I am currently the only dog at my foster mom's house however, I am good with other large dogs but not so good with cats. I like children and love to play but because of my size my human brothers and/or sisters should probably be a bit older (12 and up).  If you are looking for loyal and loving friend to share your life with, I am that friend.  I am up to date on vaccines and looking forward to meeting my forever family.

Cowboy is a total velcro pup, he loves everyone and every dog that he meets, heck he puts up with my crew here.  Unfortunately he does have some seperation anxiety that we are working with now along with the house training.  He walks nice on a leash, plays nice with other dogs.  He does know some commands, sit, down and paw and hop up to get in the car.

Aren't I the cutest thing.  I came into rescue at 1 wk old with my mom Jill.  Myself and my siblings will be available for adoption mid Sept. we are puppies so we are not house trained, we are a big ball of fluff who will need a lot of attention and training.  If you are interested in meeting myself and my siblings we will be attending many adoption events, please check the schedule.

Meet Daisy, she is one sweet girl who has not found a dog or person that she doesn't like.  She's only been in rescue less then a week, she has been well cared for by her previous owners.  She knows, sit, down, paw, takes treats very gentle.  She wants to be with you all the time.  Daisy does some barking if you put her in her crate, but if you give her a marrow bone she will settle.  We are still working out some of the house training issues, but that could all be cause this is new to her at this foster home.

Darla is such a sweet 5 to 6 month old female lab mix who was a stray to the shelter.  Darla arrived in rescue July 25, 2014, each day she has displayed a little more comfort and confidence around strangers.  At first she is a little shy but will warm up.  Darla has managed to open her crate as of right now not sure if this is human error or do we have a extremely smart dog.  She walks nice on a leash, loves to play with other dogs, wants to just please.

Dave is a fun loving dog that loves to play and hang out around the house. Dave loves spending time with his toys and chasing when you throw them. Dave is house trained and clicker trained and follows common commands including waiting until released to cross doorways and can walk along side you without pulling. He's also listens very well as he is highly motivated by food. Dave is still getting to know how to greet and play with other dogs and gets excited and may bark, but often he can be easily redirected and will continue the walk. He rarely barks inside the house, and barks at animals (squirrels, etc.) outside. He does get distracted by light reflections and shadows so he may whine when he sees them or chase them. Dave is ready for a nap or bed when you are and when he settles down he's quiet and sleeps close by. He becomes very attached and wants to go everywhere you go and will sit out of the way as long as your in view. Dave is great with others people and kids, give lots of kisses, and loves to snuggle and be rubbed.

Dixie is such a sweet heart, very petit, fun loving little and I mean little girl.  She is great with other dogs, kids and people.  Poor baby was abandoned after a house fire with 4 other dogs tucked away in the woods with no food or water in 95 degree heat for several days. 

If you are looking for a smaller girl with that labish look then Dixie is your girl.  She is working very hard on her house training and is coming along well.  She so much wants to have a family to love on and be loved. 

If you look at her pics notice the perfect white heart on her forhead.

Reintroducing the new and improved Miss Duchess. When she first arrived into rescue a few months ago, Duchess's physical and emotional health were pretty bad. She had severe gastrointestinal issues, intestinal parasites, a urinary infection, low B12 levels, small intestine bacterial overgrowth, and was thin. She was an owner surrender and seemed so lost and sad. Every car she saw, she thought was her family coming to get her. 


Duchess turned 7 recently! Happy Birthday to her!


Today, most of her GI issues are better. She does have a very sensitive gastrointestinal system so her food and diet must remain pretty unchanging. She is starting to learn how to play and have fun with toys. Duchess still has plenty of energy for a 7 old, so daily exercise is a must.

 

She loves, loves, loves going for car rides. Did I say she just loves going for car rides??  
Duchess is crate trained, but does not have to be. She has been very good when left alone.
She is a sweet, sweet girl that just wants to please you and to be loved on.

Dutchess is new to rescue she arrived 10-8-14. Ms. Dutchess was surrendered to the shelter in SC by her owner.  When she arrived she was so scared she would not move, she had to be carried... she was shutting down, giving up on life.  This poor baby is heartworm positive.  She will be starting her treatment here in the next week or two.  She has started to blossom, loves people wants to be loved on all the time.  Ms. Dutchess started her journey here in Promises by receiving a loving foster home with a soft bed, good food and a spa day.  She is feeling much better, being loved on. 
UPDATE: 1-28-15 Dutchess has started her heatworm treatment, and she is doing well with this. She is picky about her dog friends, so a test with other doggy friends is a must.  She was a shy, blank slate when she got here, but now knows sit, off, and comes the minute you call. She does like a good squirrel chase so outdoor cats probably wouldn't work.  She has met children at the vet's office and was shy and nervous but that's all.  She is completely housebroken, but she does like for her foster mom to stay outside with her when she goes potty.  She gets scared if she doesn't see her foster mom.  She also likes to lie down while she eats and wants mom to stay in the room.  Otherwise, she stops eating and goes look for her.  She can't have any cloth toys because she will eat them.  Sorry, they just look so cute and good.  Her foster mom wants to see Dutchess go through an obedience course when she is better.  Her foster mom says she is super smart, but needs to build up self confidence.

Fanny is a 5-6 month old, shepherd-mix female pup. I don't know what she's mixed with or how big she will get. About the only thing I can say with certainty is that she's sweet. Fanny is crate-trained and house-trained, but she's still a puppy. She chooses appropriate chew toys most of the time, but I wouldn't leave her loose in the house unattended for long periods. She's good with other dogs and is very playful with anyone who will reciprocate. I haven't tested her with cats, but her age and disposition is such that I expect she would learn to live with them. I don't detect any prey drive in her at this point. Fanny needs a home where she will continue to be well socialized as she matures; that's important for all dogs and for shepherds in particular. Fanny is all love. Give her a look if you are looking for a great dog.

He looks like a miniature Dane. He's probably just a happy assortment of mutt genes that express themselves that way, but it's a good look on him. His name is Felix and he's passing as a "lab-mix." He's only about 25 pounds at about 4 months of age, so he's not going to be a really big dog. He came as a stray along with two others who were already adopted. He had a few weeks of puppy training as part of a dog training program at Coffeewood Correctional Center, so he's crate trained at least and has had some beginning basic obedience training.

Fiona is growing up so quick hard to believe that she is 1 yr old now. She has a condition called mega esophagus which has been controlled by her feeding technique with blended food in the blender then eating in her bailey's chair.

Fiona is great with kids of all ages, she is good with the foster brother and sisters. She is currently going through her bully stage of new dogs wanting to bark them away. We are currently working on this. Fiona is house trained, loves her people and is very motivated to learn with peanut butter or small very soft treats. We encourage you to read up on this condition to learn more about this talk with your vet.

Hi, my name is Fonzie and I was rescued from a shelter in Kentucky along with Sandy. I am a GSD mix that likes to play and wrestle with my foster GSD siblings, am good with the resident cats even outside, and like people of all sizes. Fonzie loves to ride in the car, knows sit and down, walks pretty well on a leash, and has learned to play fetch with a ball.Mom tells me I am treat motivated whatever that means and have been the easiest foster she has had. I can play hard with the other dogs but am gentle and cuddly. I do not get on the furniture, I do enjoy chewing on antlers and nylabones, and love to lean against you and snuggle in bed.

Hi! My name is Gizmo. I like to relax and lounge all day, but I really love going on my walks. I have been enjoying the life of leisure. I am a loyal German shepherd and Iam quick to become protective of my home. I am still confused as to whymy owners surrendered me after 7 years (they told the rescue they were moving overseas and could not take me). Asa result, I need an experienced handler. I need someone who will give me guidance, reassurance, and support. In return, you will receive sweetsmiles, someone to love, and even some kisses. I truly am a loyal companion. I would do best in a home where I amthe only dog. I have lots of love to give and would love for you to give me a chance. I can not wait to find my fur-ever home!

Gretchen is looking for an active family with a fenced yard. Bonus if you have kids and another dog bigger than she is at 55lbs. Do you like to hike or run? How aboutthrow a ball or stick? Do you like to cuddle on the couch when you're tired?  Gretchen likes all of those things and more! She is house and crate trained. Sheknows drop it, sit, down, and walks reasonably well on a leash (when there are nosquirrels or bunnies around). Gretchen has a high prey drive and loves to patrol the yard. She cannot be adopted to anyone with small animals. If you are looking for a petite, sweet, young, dog, Gretchen could be the one!

I am Groot. I am a shepherd mix puppy, 9 months old, 65 pounds and growing, wild but sweet. I never met a person I didn't like. Give me half a chance and I\\'ll crawl into your lap or at least sit down on your feet and lean against you while you pet me. I live with eight or nine other dogs and I like them all, even if they do not all like me. When I find a dog who does like me, I like to play and I play hard. I know nothing of cats, good, bad, or otherwise. No one has ever taught me anything, but I am learning from the other dogs I live with. I have learned to go into the crate and spend the night. I have learned to sit. I learned to walk on a leash pretty well. I do not know all my manners, but I am willing to learn if you have the time and patience to teach. I love new things and new people.

Hardy enjoyes the company of other dogs, alog with watching them to learn the ropes.  He is good in the house and crates very nicely.  He is a bit nervous when meeting new people, he will hide behind his foster dad but will come out to meet you.

Harper was found during the blizzard of 2016, we directed the person to take her to the shelter in hopes that her owner will claim her.  Once her hold time was up she came into rescue, a scare, no trust, lost soul.  She is in very poor condition little girl.  While in her patient foster home she is learning the ropes with the help of the other dogs, this is going to be a long road for Ms. Harper to walk.  Everyday is a mile stone for this precious little girl.  Follow her progress on facebook

My name is Heath. I am full of young puppy energy and I love to run, play and cuddle. Don't give me soft toys though, I really love pulling those apart and trying to eat the stuffing.  My favorite toys are balls and kongs and I love it when you throw them for me.  I am currently the only pet in the house and I love this but during my foster time, I have shared a home with a dog and a cat.  I did fine with them, however, I love to be the favorite and I hate sharing my toys. I have also lived with a child and I loved playing with her.  I am really smart and I learn quickly but I can be just a little stubborn so be firm and patient with me.  Being a puppy, I still have the occasional accident in the house but I do go to the door when I need out. I just don't make any noise to let you know I am there. My current foster mommy takes me for a lot of walks and runs. I am still learning to stay on one side when I am on a leash and sometimes I trip on my big feet but I love the exercise. I also love showers and if you aren't paying attention, you may find me sitting in the tub while you shower trying to lick up the falling water. I would love to find my forever home.

Heifer is very food motivated.   He gets along great with other dogs, and cats.   He is good with kids but can get a little nippy, as he is a very playful puppy.  Heifer is doing great with his potty training, and learns quickly.   He would be best in with an active family that can get him lots of exercise, training, and attention!

Henry is a 1 year old black lab. He is full of life and loves to play. He is looking for a family with a nice fenced in yard to play fetch in.  I also think he could make a good running partner for someone. He is good with other dogs and would enjoy having another energetic dog in the house. He would also do fine as the only dog as long as you’ll throw the rope or tennis ball for him to go get. Henry knows commands such as “sit” and “down”. We are working on “stay” and “leave it”. Henry will be a perfect fit for an active family who is ready for a playful lab. Just be ready to receive many kisses!

I found myself in this place called a shelter.  My time was near and I mean very close to the 11th hour when a wonderful person from Corgi rescue contacted Promises.  Boy was this a close one, as of today April 21, 2014 I've been sprung from the shelter, I get to spend the night with my savior from Corgi rescue, until she takes me to the vets to be brought up to date on vaccinations and spay.  On April 23, 2014 I hit the road to come to Promises Animal Rescue where I will be going to a wonderful foster home until I find my furever home.  I am so looking forward to this as I want to leave all of this behind me.

My name is Hunter. I came from down south with my brother and sisters. My mom is a german shepherd but I did not get to meet my daddy. My little ears are trying to stand up already, so my foster mom says I look like a little german shepherd already I’m only about 6 weeks old but feeling better now with all the good food I have been eating. I love to play, eat and sleep. Give me a little more time and I can be your best fur friend walking in the park, going for rides, playing with toys, and learning so many new things you can teach me

Hunter is a nice young pup who is 7 months old.  He will be getting neutered soon. He needs some age and energy appropriate playmates.  He's cute and sweet, loves absolutely everything and everyone.  He's a typical lab pup.

Hunter is new to the rescue, he will not be available until he is neutered.  This boy needs LOTS of training, and play time.

Izzy arrived to us from the shelter in Columbia, SC where she came in as a stray. When she got here she was sick with an upper respiratory infection and dehydrated. I am happy to say that with antibiotics, plenty of fluids and food, she is back to her old self!! She is a GSD mix, on the petite side and will probably not get much bigger. Slightly shy, but warms up quickly and will lavish you with kisses and tail wags. Such a sweet girl. She absolutely loves to snuggle with you! She is a very active little girl ( I call her Busy Izzy) and loves playing with all my dogs, wants to play with the cats, but they of course want nothing to do with her! She is only 9 months old, so she is still considered a puppy with the usual puppy antics, like getting into everything!! She will need an active home and additional training. She knows a few commands like "sit" and "down" already, but she needs more obedience and leash training. Beautiful gold eyes and beautiful fur color.She is a fun, funny little girl. She will keep you laughing. She requires a fenced yard (no invisible fences, for her!)  kids in the house should be at least 9 years old. Although she loves kids, she is very rambunctious when she plays and can easily knock them over

Izzie is a shy, but playful pup. She is one of the smaller pups, currently weighing in at 12 lbs, as opposed to her foster brother at 15 lbs. She is full of energy and very playful, but reserved to new people. She will take some time to warm up to her new family, so she comes across fearful but believe me she isn't. She will tackle her litter mates just as much as the next guy. She is smart and intuitive, and will grow to be a very loving family pet. She enjoys long walks in the park, dinner by candlelight, and quiet time cuddling on the couch:)

Jack is about 15 months old. He's neutered. He's been to the vet and is now current on vaccines. Jack is what happens when you buy a cute little German Shepherd puppy and then don't do any training with him in the first year of his life. He's very friendly and sociable, but he has absolutely no manners. Actually he has a lot of bad manners. He does seem to be ok with being crated, however, and he's certainly fine with other large dogs. He will like any dog who will like him back; the others he will just leave alone. Jack's only goal in life is to play, play, and then play some more. He's very jumpy, somewhat mouthy, but never mean or aggressive about it, he's just a wild child. He can get over a 4' fence quite easily and he can climb and scramble over a 6' chain link fence. Jack loves the water and he loves to run after a tennis ball, although he's not inclined to give it back. He's going to take some work, he's not for a first time shepherd owner, but he's got the potential to make someone a really great dog.

JoJo is a wonderful girl. She is very well behaved indoors and out. Give her toys and an old shoe and she’ll leave your good shoes alone. JoJo is crate trained and is content to sleep there all night or when you’re out doing errands. She loves to follow you around and wants to be near you but will lie quietly and be happy to be close by. She loves tummy rubs and kisses. JoJo is house trained once you get her schedule down. A couple of accidents the first day or two and then you’re all set. JoJo loves to romp and play. She loves to chase balls and even sometimes will bring them back for another throw! She walks fairly well on a leash. She will pull a little but with a little more training that should stop. She gets distracted by other people and dogs but she wants to play with them. I’ve only seen her bark and growl at one dog that started it first. JoJo would be happiest in a home that has a large yard to play in and possibly other dogs to play with. She may also have some experience with horses as she stood up and started barking when she heard the horse neigh during the Broncos game. She is a gentle eater and will gladly take a treat and save it for later. She doesn’t seem to care for turkey based food though and is still getting used to dry food. JoJo is pure joy to be with.

This is a real southern Lady all the way from Tennessee.  She knows how to charm everyone she meets.  She is very gentle and quiet and loves having her tummy rubbed and giving kisses, she's a tail-waggin' machine!  She loves going for walks but she does pull on the leash so I don't think she's had much leash walking experience.  She loves her walks, I don't think it will take long for her to learn.  Lady already knows sit and come, but not reliable, unless there's a treat in my hand.  However, she is very picky about the treats she takes-seems to prefer the chewy ones vs the dry biscuit types.  The ones she does decide to eat, she takes very delicately.

Lady does not appear to have been exposed to toys, chewy or furry, squeaky or quiet, and doesn't know what to do with balls.  So, we're learning how to play catch and fetch, but she does not seem to find it very rewarding.  I would say to be cautious about cats, judging from how she lunges a one of our neighbor's cats.  Lady also seems to have a pretty significant prey drive as she does attempt to chase squirrels or birds we encounter along the way.  She is great with people and kids and doesn't understand why everyone doesn't want to say hello or rub her tummy

  • Tag Number: 2016-070



Lucy is a young girl, probably between one and two years. She's initially very shy, but warms up after a couple weeks, especially if there is a playful, self-assured dog in the house. 
She's good with dog savvy cats; ones that won't run from her. If they do, she will do a playful chase. She is still mouthy and will mouth them. My cats have no problem bopping her when she gets too rough and she backs off immediately. 
She is food assertive with other animals, so I recommend feeding her separately. 
She's basically a blank slate. She's still freezes while on leash and lays down as flat as possible. She will sit for a treat, but that's about it. However, she is very food motivated (she is a lab after all), so that does make training easier. 
She does bark while crated and actually does better with free roam of the house while you're gone. She doesn't chew inappropriately. 
She can hold a piddle up to about four hours while you're gone during the day and does great sleeping through the night with no accidents. 
She adores dog beds and is absolutely adorable snuggling on them. 
Lucy is currently going through heartworm treatment and will be available in a couple of months.

Let me introduce myself to you.  I'm Lucky a 5 to 6 mo old labrador mix.  I was originally a stray in South Carolina when a wonderful lady took me into her home tried very hard to find my owners without success.  Promises offered to help me find a new furever home, so they had me fully vetted and neutered then flew me to Virginia with another wonderful girl named Gretchen.  Since I arrived I attended an adoption event where I had fun, then I was in a temp foster home with other dogs and a child, boy did I have fun there.  I'm fully house trained, I really don't like the crate, but I can be pushed in without a problem.  I love playing with toys and people and other dogs. I was told that I can not jump up on the kitchen counter, so they say I may need some more training.  I am all up for that can you give that to me?

Lucky does great in the home, is good with other dogs in his foster home.  He loves to play, run around with the other dogs, will come right away when called and he goes to his crate when told.  Lucky is quickly learning
not to jump up on people, sit at the door before going out and coming back in.  He's rides well in a car, but is a little scared at first to get in.

First pic is me at 4wks old the second is when I was 2 wks 3rd and 4th 6wks.  I'm growing up quickly.  The rescue is taking applications.  I'm not going to be available for adoption until 6/14/17 so please put in an application to adopt me.

Cute as a button.  That's me, Luna.  I am cuddly and snuggley, but watch out for my puppy teeth.  Sometimes they just can't help giving a little nip at the end of my disses.  I am a sweet gir, but don't think I'm a pushover.  I have a lot of energy and keep my brother in line even though he's bigger than me.  I will soon be old enough to be placed in my forever home and my foster family say they will miss me.  Why do they love me so much?  Besides being cute and cuddly, I am eager to please.  I know my name and almost always ome when I am called.  I can use newspaper, puppy pads, concrete, mulch and grass to go potty.  (Well, I don't like wet grass and I do have accidents sometimes, but my foster mom never gets mad.  She knows I'm still learning.) I'm also quite smal.  I taught myself how to go upstairs although I haven't figured out downstairs yet.  I'm friendly and playful.  I like to meet new people, and I have become friends with Lola, my foster family's cat.  I can't wait to start puppy training to meet some new puppy friends.  My brother and I play a lot when we aren't sleeping which is a lot more.  (I still need my beauty sleep.)  We sleep in our crate throught the night and nap there, too, but my favorite place to sleep is on my foster mom's lap.  She likes't it too.  My foster mom say that whoever adopts me will have a good puppy.  She lopes my forever family will give me lots of exercise and training as I grow up, so I will be happy and healthy.  She thinks I will be a great family member!

Magic is an amazing pup that is thoroughly enjoying his new lease on
 life.
 Having come to the area from a shelter in North Carolina, he is
 interested in everything and loves to get outside and explore. While great with
 people, kids and cats, there is nothing Magic loves more than the company
 of other dogs, and he would love to be adopted by a family that has a
 companion for him to spend his days with. He is a smart boy and eager to
 please, learning commands quickly and always looking for positive reinforcement.

Magic loves to spend time being close to his people and will snuggle with you any chance he gets, so if you're looking for a dog that will stay by your side no matter what, he's your guy. As a puppy, his
energy is matched only by his love for naps, and he can chill out as well as he can play. Housebroken and kind, this dog would make the perfect pet for anyone looking for a four legged best friend!

Major's Journey!

This beautiful dog named Major came to the shelter in Hardin County Animal Shelter, KY after his owner suddenly went missing. He has been there since February, patiently waiting for a new home.  What a gentle giant he is! We are proud to share that Major made his ride to freedom last week. After much networking with Promises Animal Rescue and many other wonderfully resourceful people, Major is finally safe in the arms of a wonderful foster couple with Promises Animal Rescue. The sad news is the Journey doesn't end here. Major has tested positive for heartworms, positive for Ehrlichia, a tick borne disease, and has a double ear infection as well.

A Special Thank you goes out to all for all your support both financially and emotionally and all the well wishes on Major who will be going thru heart worm treatment.

Update 7-2-14 Major has started his heart worm treatment, on 6-30-14.  So far he is doing well he is a true champ, he arrived home from the vets office and went straight to his baby chicks that he has been watching grow up.  He is resting comfortably in his foster home.  Please follow us on facebook

Marty arrived with infected ears which are being treated as well as lyme (tick born) which is being treated.  He settles down very nicely, loves the comfort of a nice warm bed to lay his head.

Millie is an energetic and playful 3 year old lab mix. She is house broken and we are currently working on basic commands such as sit and lie down. She has been learning quickly and seems eager to please. She enjoys going on walks, but needs leash training. She will be a great running buddy with some training. She is very friendly and I think she would be a great addition to any family! She doesn\\'t get along with cats, but loves other dogs!

Misty-Dew and Tazy-May were both abandoned, both full of ticks, left with no food or water.  Two wonderful women sought help for these two girls with no success thru the animal control. They were both released to Promises taken to the vet to be checked over, spayed, brought up to date on vaccinations along with a heartworm test.  They are both very healthy heartworm negative and happy as can be to be receiving the much needed attention from humans.

Introducing sweet Paisley, one of seven pups who came to Promises from SC on 12/28/14.
Paisley is a sweet, smart, and loving little girl. She loves having somebody close by who will play with her, give her tummy rubs, or sit nearby.
We are working on potty training - she is very smart, so it shouldn't take too long. She sleeps in a crate at night, and once she settles, she sleeps all night with a dry bed in the morning.
Her favorite activities include chasing a ball, chewing on her puppy toys, playing with our 6 year old German Shepherd (when our Shepherd will let her), and having her belly rubbed.
Paisley has not been around young children, but she is wonderful with my 14, 18, and 20 year old, and all their friends that have come in to meet her. She does require lots of attention and exercise, and her future family must be willing to attend training with her so that she can continue learning proper manners.

Pie is such a sweetheart. She loves the other dogs and loves to play at them but once they decide to play back she gets a little afraid. She is a tad leery of people also, but warms up quickly. Just a little un-trusting. She plays really well by herself with doggie toys and especially loves a ball (any size). Pie is not liking the crate thing at this time. She is a small little girl with a big heart and would love to make your family her family.

Ricky is amazing pup, he absolutely loves people, he wants to hug you all the time, be with you.  I truely believe he is like this given what he went through and how grateful he is that he was given a chance starting with the shelter who worked on him to get him to good health. 

Ricky enjoys being outside sunning on the deck, loves to go for rides in the car, will pull you slightly on a leash but is getting much better.  He found this new trick while in foster home that he likes to sit on top of his crate to say oh what a good boy am I. 

I've had no problems with him with other dogs big, small and medium he's not quiet sure how to join the play team but he does try and does pretty well.  Toys, he loves toys, bones, treats and to show off that he sits and gives paw on command.  This boy would be a great addition to any home, his pictures do not show what a handsome boy he is.

Ricky will require a 6' fence.

My name is Riley. I came from down south with my brother and sisters. My mom is a german shepherd but I did not get to meet my daddy. My little ears are trying to stand up already, so my foster mom says I look like a little german shepherd already. I am only about 6 weeks old but feeling better now with all the good food I have been eating. I love to play, eat and sleep. Give me a little more time and I can be your best fur friend walking in the park, going for rides, playing with toys, and learning so many new things you can teach me.

I'm looking for my forever home, but most importantly I'd love to be the newest member of your family!

His name is Roo. He's 8 months old and he's underweight. Roo was being  kept in a crate that was much too small for him in the back of a truck  after the owner's boyfriend moved in and "didn't like the dog." A good  samaritan took him in to get him out of his horrible living conditions.  He was underweight, probably because he was full of worms and was not  being fed regularly. He was transferred to another good samaritan who  wanted to help him, and did, but couldn't keep him.

He's sweet and absolutely gorgeous and will look even better when he  fills out and grows up. He's good with other dogs, house-trained, and  cat-friendly! He may or may not be good with children; that's something  we will need to figure out or place him in a child free home. At eight months of age he has already begun displaying the affection, devotion, and protectiveness that shepherds are known for.

Roxanne, arrived in rescue 6/23/14 with Izzy from SC. Roxanne greeted everyone that she saw with tail wags and kisses. She is a very happy girl, who is just so full of love to give. Roxanne has been in foster care for a couple of weeks, she adjusts very well to a home, learns the house rules but does need some reminders that you can't jump up on the counters. She is fully house trained, crate trained, loves, loves, loves children and adults. She is currently being fostered in a home with corgi's. It's so funny watching her try to keep up with them. Roxanne does a little howl when first put in her crate at night but soon goes to sleep. Roxanne is so starved for love and attention, won't you be her family.....

Note from foster mom  

What can I say about this sweet little girl... My daughter who is 9 and I have had Roxy for about a week. What a doll! We have 2 Corgis and she is great with them. She loves children, and other dogs, she is a puppy with a great spirit! She is learning so quickly. It took me about 5 minutes to teach her sit. And found out tonight when Debbie came to visit that my daughter taught her "down" and "Shake". She is full of kisses and will be a very typical GSD "Velcro dog". Just a joy to have around. We are continuing to work on our puppy manners and other basic commands. If you want a sweet dog with a gentle personality Roxy is your girl. Oh & FYI she LOVES to play ball!

Hello All, let me tell you about me, I'm a little shy at first, but I warm up super quick.  My foster mom is calling me a pocket shepherd. I enjoy long walks, the quiet time with you watching tv, playing with my foster sister who is about my size. I am very gentle at taking treats. All I want to do is love you.

I can not go into a home with chickens. I do love to chase the squirrels in the yard, so they are saying that I have that thing called prey drive. So no kitties, ferrets, birds. I am good with other dogs.

Sadie is approx 4 months old, she is pure puppy, shy at first or should we say split second.  She is very loving.  She enjoys being held, playing with the kids in the home, going on walks with leashes, getting to know the world.  Remember we are puppies and will need training, so patients and time is a must

I'm Samantha, I'm 4 mo old, I love to play, chase my sister, and love cuddle with my human friends.  We (myself and Sadie) are being fostered together, with 2 other big dogs here.  Those big dogs scared us at first but they are pretty cool guys, they are gentle with us and eager to show us the ropes here.

I really enjoy going to the school bus to see my little friends off to school and getting so much attention.  I'm going to need training so they say along with what they call patients and understanding as I'm trying to learn the ropes as quick as possible

Sammy is an intelligent, sweet, lovable puppy.  He loves to play, and he loves attention - tummy rubs, playing with toys, etc.  He is a little lap puppy, who will one day be a pretty big dog.  Sammy is pretty active, and will need plenty of room to run or be walked frequently.  He gets along well with the fster family's 6 year old german shepherd and 11 year old lab mix.  He has been introduced to one cat, and he wanted to play with her, but the cat ran away, and he lost interest.  The youngest child he has been around was 5 years old, and he did well - he loves people of all ages!  He will be a great addition to a loving family.

Sandy is just the perfect southern lady, she is great in the house, good on a leash, knows several commands loves everyone that she meets. Sandy would just love to be the queen of the home, cuddle up with you to watch your sports, movies and give you kisses.  Sandy is really a true people type dog, she is absolutely google eyes over kids.  She would do great in a home where she will be shown off during walks, take her for rides in the car, cuddle with her, tell her how beautiful she is.

I only wish I knew what I did wrong to end up in the shelter, I was used and used to make money for my previous owners.  Now it's time for me to find what I've been looking for. I'm looking for my furever home, where I will be put up on that pedestal as a princess.  I would love to hop up on the couch with you watch your programs, be loved on all the time, take those walks to explore, watch over you, but most of all be your best of friend.

UPDATE 10-7-14 Anna, who is about 4 years old, comes to us from Kentucky, where she was used for breeding, and then was dumped at a kill shelter.  Her days were numbered  until Promises fetched her here, along with her shelter mate Fonzi. 

Anna is all shepherd, with strong, good instincts.  She patrols her areas, she  checks on her humans, she is alert and always listening.  We have observed no  aggression in her at all. 

She came to us with very bad worms and very underweight, but the parasites are  gone and she is eating and gaining weight.  The vet wants her to weigh between  70 and 75 pounds, and she has 10 to 15 pounds to gain to make that.  Her hips  have been examined and filmed and they are perfect.  She is gaining in strength  every day.  Her coat is gorgeous, with a light frosting on the black and tan. 

Now for the fun part.  Anna loves to give kisses, to run and play and is very  obedient and oh so smart.  She learned her new name in two days.  She comes when  called, sits, shakes and is learning to wait.  We are going to try some agility  when she gets a little more settled in.  She allows us to rub her all over, and  loves it.  Anna chases her tail when excited, and is so funny and and full of  energy. 

We have introduced her to some of our other dogs, and while friendly, she is  more interested in patroling and checking in with her humans.  Oh, and standing  at the gate, begging to go for a ride in the car.  She loves to ride and is very  good in the car. 

Because she is going to be a big girl and has such strong shepherd instincts,  and because she is smarter than most of us, we think she needs to go to someone used to handling the breed, who has enough fenced yard for her to run and  exercise and who has the time to continue her training.  

This a very shepherdy shepherd, who is smart, willing, friendly, people oriented  and absolutely full of joy.

Hi, I’m Winnie aka Sasha; I’m a nine-week-old growing, active Lab-mix puppy.  I love playing with my brother, Chubby, and my foster family’s two dogs.  Falling asleep in someone’s lap is my favorite and I will let you know that is what I want to do.  I am very vocal, loving, and lively.  I really want a home with a soft bed, a yard to run in, and people around to love me, walk me, and play with me!   The rescue is taking applications.

He is a young dog, about three years old and his paperwork has him listed as a Dane/Lab mix. He is probably a Lab mix of some sort, but I am not sure I see any Great Dane there. He is a nice dog, friendly, good with other dogs, sits on command, and he was fine with his first night in a crate. He seems to be very food motivated.

Sheena is about 10 months old and is full puppy exuberance and curiosity.  She is house trained and crate trained, though she is still not a fan of the crate and does not like to be in it without a toy or two.  Sometimes she will cry for a brief period before deciding she is safe and comfortable.  She will let you know when she needs out usually by barking at you and pacing toward the door.  She knows sit and she will stop whatever she is doing if you tell her no.  We are still fine tuning "down" and her leash manners.  Her foster family loves to take her out for walks and runs.  If you need motivation to run, she is the pup for you, she loves it.  She is treat and praise motivated. She is happy to get attention, loves toys and wants to play with the 2 year old who is frequently visiting, we are still working on getting her to be a little more gentle with him.  She tends to jump on him in play not understanding that she will knock him over.  Fortunately, our tiny house tot is used to being around big dogs and he just tells her no and pushes her away.  She has been good with other dogs when we are out in the yard and they visit.  Her ideal family is active with a fenced yard (with no space to escape, she is a smart one). If you are looking to add a sweet, young active dog to your family, Sheena is the girl for you.

Hi, I'm Shelby and apparently, I am quite a looker, but really, all I want to do is give kisses. My fur is shiny, thick and soft. It's growing back so fast, that you might not even notice that I had to have an embedded choke collar removed from my neck. But, that's all behind me now and I never want to wander the streets alone again.  I am about one year old, and many things are new to me, but I am smart and eager to please.  Call my name and I come running! Maybe you could even give me a treat and I will give you kisses. Don't give me a treat, and I will still give you kisses. I am 60lbs and working on gaining weight. I am available for adoption and being fostered in Frederick County, MD.

Shye has been with us for three months now. She came from a farm in Kentucky, dropped off at a shelter surely to be put to sleep. Shye was so scared of everything in life, we finally got her to eat her regular meals and she is almost all the way house trained. Shye is a snuggle bunny she loves to sit with me on the couch and veg. We had her tested with cats, kids, bikes and other moving objects she does very well. At first I thought Shye would only fit with a quiet home, and now that she has come out of her shell i think she would love a more active home. She loves pack-walking more than anything, my dogs have made her calm and confident. I think she is at her best with other dogs. I hope someone will read her new bio and come meet her at an event, she is worth the trip!

Stone, joined the rescue in not such good shape.  Poor boy wasn't eating well at all and couldn't keep what food he was eating down.  So off to the vet he went, lots of x'rays, ultra sound comes to a diagnoses of mega esophagus.  Currently Stone is doing MUCH better with his food being blended in a blender to a milk shake consistence as well as being fed upright in his new bailey's chair.  Every day he is doing something new, with a little more energy.  You know when a puppy is feeling better when your toes are the pick of play. 
Stone is a very smart boy who is picking up things very quickly, like getting into his bailey's chair, house training. 
6-16-14 Update:  Well Stone has been with us a month, we has done wonderful, doubled his weight, trained fully to his bailey's chair, house trained, crate trained, enjoys being with other dogs, leash trained, knows sit and a little shy with new people but if you call his name he is fine.  I would not suggest he be in a home with small children given his sharp teeth at this current time.  If you are interested in learning more on Stone we would love to show him off to you.

She came out of a rural shelter, picked up as a stray. The shelter named her "Summer".  Getting picked up was the best thing that had happened to this girl in a long time. As bad as she looks now, this is after gaining 9 pounds at the shelter and getting two lyme/sulphur dips for her skin. She has actually started re-growing hair already. She has some pretty red fur on the top of her head. When she grows some more of it she will probably be a very pretty girl.We've seen worse, but hate to think about it. She doesn't have that yeast infected smell to her at least, probably due to the treatment she has already received. She's not spayed, but probably can't be for awhile. She acts like she's been indoors before, and she was fine in the crate last night. I've also been crating her during the day when I'm away. She's not an old girl and she's not at death's door by any means. She's fun and lively, loving and lovely. Let me add that she loves to play ball, she will bring the ball back too.

Swiffer will be arriving in rescue on Wednesday Aug 3, 2016 via Pilots n Paws.  Here is what the shelter initially said about Swiffer.

Estimated to be 6-8 months old, heartworm negative and starting to walk on a leash! Don’t let this sweet boy be overlooked! Can pick up & pet him!
Swiffer (A207085) is a younger dog that appears to be a German Shepherd mix. He had been running loose for some time and Officers had been trying to capture him. We received a call that someone had been able to confine him and our Officers went out. No owner had come in to claim this scared boy. Swiffer seems to have not been socialized. Though he is very timid and scared he has NOT offered to bite and does allow us to pick him up and pet him. This boy needs more work than just the average scared in the shelter home, he needs his confidence built up and to be socialized. Swiffer is about 32 lbs and after his medical exam we will know more about him.
*** the rescue will update this information once he arrives in foster

Tank is being fostered in North Carolina while he is under going his heartworm treatment.  Tank is a special boy who was a grand save.  There were bumps in the road whild Tank and his foster got to read each other.  Now that they both have learned each other and their signs the are BFF's.  When we receive pics of Tank and his foster mom, you can see how much they have bonded to one another, it's like a love story.

Tobias is a big goofy guy who just loves everyone and everything.  He is a super laid back guy.  The world is so new to him he is learning something everyday.  Tobias is being fed in his crate currently to teach him that the crate is all good.  There will be times that he does bark and cry when in his crate but he will settle down.  Tobias would do well in a home who will continue his training, want to just love him for who he is.   He has learned sit, down and takes treats gently.  Come visit Tobias at adoption events beware he will give you lots of kisses.Tobias is looking for a family who has a fenced yard would be great if they have another dog.

My name is Trapper. I love to play and cuddle. I live with another dog named Groot and we love to run and play, we share toys well. Groot is the boss in this house and I am ok with that. I also live with two cats. I like to chase the cats but my foster mommy gets mad at me when I do, so I am learning to be ok with just smelling them. My foster mommy has taught me how to sit and is trying to teach me other tricks but I am not sure why I need to know them so I am being stubborn. She is also teaching me how to go potty outside  some days I am good and others I just don't want to wait till I get outside to go. I would love to find my forever home, Do you think it might be yours? I guess you will have to meet me to find out.

Hi there, I'm Tris, I was a very reserved when I first came here with my brothers and sisters, but I have come out of my shell with my foster family. I love walks in the park, playing with my chew toys, and romping around with dogs my size. I still get a little intimidated with strange dogs, but once I meet them on leash I can let loose. I am very obedient with my potty breaks. I know exactly where to go and I make sure I let my foster mommy know when I need to go. I don't mind the crate, as long as I have had my meal and don't have to go to the bathroom, but don't leave me in there too long, I wanna play!  What I love the most is being with you, my humans and I'd be your lap dog, if you'll let me.

Troy is a 12 month old puppy who is a very smart boy.  He is completely house broken, crate trained, knows his basic commands ie sit, down, stay, off, easy and shake.  Troy is currently in a foster home with children of all ages who he loves dearly, he also has a small dog friend in the home who adores him.  Troy has met many 4 legged friends in the neighborhood, all is good.  All he wants to do is play with everyone, at times he can get a little rough, easily corrected.  He loves to play ball, jog with you, take those long walks with you thru the neighborhood, shopping centers.  Currently Troy is being worked with on riding in the car where he can get a little anxious to the point of car sickness, although this has improved greatly we are continuing working on this.  Click on this link to see a short clip of my journey.

Not available at this time I was just released from the emergency vets office after being diagnosed with a condition called mega esophagus.  My previous owners gave me up, I'm not sure if they were aware that I was not feeling well until I came to my foster moms house.  My esophagus is so jammed packed with food, everyone is trying very hard to get this food moving as this has been stressing me out. I will keep you up dated on how I'm feeling as we get through this week. 
My medical bills are getting up there, won't you consider donating toward my care.

Xochi is a shepherd and she's got the ears to prove it. She's eight months old and she's all puppy, but she's crate-trained and supposedly house trained. The first night in the crate was just fine. All I can say for sure at this point is that she active, fun, and lively. She just wants to play with every man, woman, dog, or any living creature that she encounters.

Sweet Xena, loves to be with people. Her next favorite activity is squirrel chasing, followed by napping, and more napping.
She is house trained, but needs some work on basic obedience and leash manners. She does have some separation anxiety, and will howl when left alone, or when she thinks she's alone.

Can we say cuteness here... this little guy loves to cuddle.  He is a very loyal little fellow who will follow you around so he does stay close.  Zeus is a quick learner, by following hand gestures well from a pat on the leg to come or a finger point to go around an object.  He is very friendly and playful.
Zeus is a lover, he loves to give those wonderful puppy kisses to people and other animals.
Are you the family to take him to all different levels of obedience?

I am a free spirited little girl, who can hold my own up to the big boys. I can be a very flirtatious girl who gets what she wants with her foster brothers. I've been learning a lot about these things called commands ie: sit, wait, stay, paw, easy and down. These are kind of fun since I get treats afterwards. I am a completely normal, healthy puppy with a condition called mega esophagus.This is just a matter of how you feed me.
