Boss is a sweet man of 6 or 7 years old. It is apparent Boss had been living on his own for quite some time. He came into rescue severely emaciated, and after two weeks in rescue was hospitalized with pneumonia. Boss spent 5 days at the vet on IV fluids and antibiotics. He finally turned the corner and continued to improve every day. He is currently a healthy weight after gaining 20 pounds. Boss has turned into quite a mamma’s boy. He enjoys being in the company of his foster family and receiving all the attention he can get. He is eager to please and a joy to have around the house. We recently learned Boss has kidney disease. The recommended treat for kidney disease in dog is a low protein diet. Boss will need to remain on a prescription diet for the remainder of his life. Boss will fit in nicely to almost any home. He gets along great with dogs and cats. He is housebroken and crate trained. Boss deserves to live his remaining years being spoiled and loved.
We absolutely love Dodger ! He's a good boy. He's very loving ! He's starting to run and be more playful now that he's used to us. Thanks for saving him so he could be a part of our family.
Merry Christmas !
Hi, my name is Carl; at least that's what the shelter staff has been calling me since I was picked up as a stray. I don't understand why my previous family let me roam around & didn't come looking for me when I didn't return home. I will sit on command & offer my paw quickly for one of those tasty treats. I even walk well on leash. I am estimated to be 2-3 years old. I think I'm a handsome fella & I show that I have a lot of personality in the way I strut. I am very happy to be out of the shelter & in my foster home. I was so happy to get those itchy fleas off me. The first evening with my foster family I enjoyed playing gently with my human foster siblings & snuggling with them on the couch in their warm house. I get along fairly well with the other boxers in my foster home although I think I should be the boss. I prefer a home without indoor cats. My foster family is reinforcing that I am to go potty outside & so far I've not had any indoor potty accidents. They are also teaching me to have better house manners. I willingly go into my crate when offered a few treats although I can be a little whiney because I just want to be right by your side! So it's not any surprise that I also ride well in the car. I enjoy chasing a tennis ball & bring it back to you to throw it again for me. I am so happy to be getting regular meals & am working on gaining some weight that I lost while out on my own. I am up to date on my vetting & microchipped now. Don't I sound like a great companion for a family that will love & keep me safe & warm?

Daisy is an 8 y.o. sweetheart. She appears to have been on her own for quite some time. She has a good appetite, but is still
on the thin side and needs to gain a few more pounds. As far as her personality, she is very sweet and
likes very much to cuddle. She loves to follow her foster mom around the house. She craves attention and
needs an owner who can give her the time she needs. Daisy loves to ride in the car and gets along very well with her foster
brothers. She also enjoys playing with her young foster brother, and likes it when he chases her around the yard. She is working
on her leash walking and trying to learn not to pull so much. But by walking her regularly on the leash, and getting her to
learn to heel, she should get better quickly. Daisy has learned her name quickly and comes very well on command. She rarely
barks. Her only bad habit is that she sometimes gets excited and jumps on people. We are trying to break her of the habit
with positive reinforcement. Daisy is house-trained. She had an accident in the first couple of days that we got her, but
we attribute that to stress. She will make a great addition to almost any home!!!
Angel is approximately 2-3 years old. She lived
her whole life in an outdoor pen and is just learning what it means to be an inside dog. She is working on her potty training
and her crate training. She is a very sweet girl who loves all the attention she can get from her foster family. she is great
with kids and other dogs. Unfortunately, due to living outside & not being up to date on her vetting, including monthly heartworm prevention,
she was Heartworm positive. Angel is currently undergoing treatment for heartworm disease and will be ready for adoption
shortly. Once treatment is complete, she will suffer no long term health problems from the heartworm disease.
Here is an update on Callie from her foster mom:
“We have been in classes for 2 weeks now. We are in beginner’s agility with about 10 other dogs. There are 4 boxers from the same breeder in that class. When we walked in everyone stared at us and I couldn't figure out why until it dawned on me that they were staring at her "utters" which are still nearly dragging on the ground. The breeder boxers were scared and wouldn't try the balance beam or the tunnels so I was concerned that my Callie would not try the equipment since 4 weeks ago she wouldn't go through a doorway. When it came Callie's turn she walked up and happily did everything that was asked of her. The instructor commented on how good she was. Later in class, 2 of the big breeder boxers snarled at her and when I said "watch" she turned in a sit and ignored them! Our little rescue with her utters dragging out did the breeder dogs...and I believe she knows it. She has become a confident girl. She no longer runs when she sees the leash. She is as good walking off leash as she is on. She plays wonderfully with our male...I can't believe what he puts up with from her! We also haven't had an accident in the house in 6 days. She no longer sleeps curled in a ball like a scared dog but now stretches out and sleeps with me on the couch.”
Crystal is approximately 2-3 years old. She is brand new to rescue and we will be posting more details about her soon.
Bailey is approximately 2 years old. She gets along well with other dogs and loves to play. Bailey walks nicely on leash. She is in the process of working on her crate training and her potty training.
Can you guess how I got the name Joker? I am around 2 years old and am one of a kind! I was rescued by Animal Control when I was found chained outside in the freezing cold last winter & starving. I've gained weight since coming into rescue but will always be a little small due to being malnourished so early in life. 50 pounds is a good weight for me. I have to be watched because I am one of those "Hoover" dogs that will eat things before I check it out. I guess it's because I was so hungry for so long. I've been known to eat pieces of toys I can chew off & paper or plastic. I've learned so much since being in my foster home. I am housetrained, crate trained, and I know how good it feels to be a part of a loving familyloving family. I take my time warming up to new people but then once I trust you, I am very affectionate & enjoy snuggling on the couch with you. I love all the attention I can get & being an indoor dog. I get along well with all the boxers in my foster home, both male & female. I also do well with small dogssmall dogs although I probably would not be able to leave kitty catskitty cats alone. I love most any toy & kids too! It's really fun when the kids tug on a rope with me or throw my Kong Frisbee for me to chase in my foster family's fenced back yard. I really want to please you & can learn just about anything if it means I can earn a tasty treat reward. I’m still working on my leash training, because I’m a bit of a puller. I follow my foster mom everywhere & really enjoy going for car rides with her. I get so happy to see my foster family that I can't help but wiggle all over! Do you think you can give me the forever home I deserve?
My husband and I just finalized our adoption with Ulysses tonight. We wanted to take an opportunity to let you know a few important things that you should know as the director of BGBR. Kelly was wonderful to work with throughout the entire adoption process. From the first phone call with her, she was very pleasant to talk with and made both of us feel very comfortable with her. We can really tell that she loves what she is doing and has a wonderful passion for getting the dogs into a home where they will be loved. We believe that she is a great asset to have on your team. We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for continuing to do what you all are currently doing. It must not always be an easy job, but would be very rewarding in more than one way. We believe that this world needs to have more people like the ones your organization consists of. We wanted to take a few minutes to let you know that you have excellent people that are doing an outstanding job working with you. We think that it is so very important to let others know when you have a good experience because more often than not, people only receive negative feedback. Thank you for brining Uly into our home and becoming a member of our family. We are looking forward to the many years that we will have with Uly and our other dog Cassi. We will definitely keep BGBR in mind for our future additions to our family. Once again – Great job and please keep up the amazing job that you all are doing!
Laura and Will

who is being deployed overseas. His nickname is “Uly” and he weighs 98lbs. He understands hand and voice commands for sit, stay, lay down, and come. He is housebroken and crate trained. His favorite toy is a Kong and his favorite treats are Pizzles and pig ears. Uly loves walks in the park and water games….a garden hose games makes for a very good time! He is excellent with children, and other animals. Uly also knows how to sing along with a harmonica (this is very funny!!)
My name is Hank. I was taken to the shelter as a stray. I wonder why my owner never came looking for me. How can you not miss this sweet face? I am very expressive with my face too. I am 2 years old. As you can see, I need to gain some weight that I lost while in the shelter. I am a very clownish boy & I enjoy playing with any & every toy there is. I really love things I can run & shake & I can even entertain myself in the fenced yard at my foster home with a tennis ball. I also like to chase a laser light. I am housetrained. I do not like to be crated but I am trying to learn to be a good boy when I need to go in my crate for awhile. I am pretty attached to my foster mom already & I don't like it when she's out of my sight. I will work on becoming less anxious while I wait for my forever family. I walk well on my leash & I enjoy riding in the car. I get along well with the other foster boxers, both male & female, in my foster home. I don't know if I like small dogs or cats. I do like kids & I think I am one myself. Do you have what it takes to be my forever family?Adoption Donation: $250.00
Jake came in as an owner surrender. His Momma has to move and he cannot go with her. He is a beautiful loving 1 year old male of fawn color. Jake is very playful and gets along well with his foster brother and sister. Cats are unknown at this time. He does well with children of all ages. (He doesn't understand how big he is sometimes.) He knows basic commands of down, sit and shake. We take him out with no collar or leash and he stays right with us. Jake does need a fenced in yard to run...he is only a year old and needs lots of exercise. He must be crated if left alone because he does have some separation anxiety. He is so loving and can't get or give enough love. Please consider giving Jake a FOREVER HOME. He deserves it.
My name is Ben. I am the sweetest, best behaved guy you'll ever meet. I am 8 years old & a great companion. My owner wanted to give me a chance to find a loving forever family that can give me the life I deserve after she lost her job & was unable to keep me in an apartment. I enjoy leisurely walks and like to go for rides in the car with you. Don't let my age fool you, I love to play with toys that squeak & I will fetch a ball. I am good with kids & I don't jump on anyone. I just wiggle up next to you to get you to pet me every once in a while. I have excellent house manners & never bark or whine. The loudest thing I do is snore a little. I am housetrained & I will sleep in a crate as long as you leave the door open or I will sleep on a dog bed in the floor. I get a little anxious being closed in my crate. I get the run of the house in my foster home & I never bother anything or make a mess. I get along well with the other boxers in my foster home, both male & female, even though I am used to being an only dog in a very quiet house. I am up to date on my vetting & microchipped. Do you have a place in your heart & home for an older gentleman like me?
My name is Stripe. I’m 2 yrs old & know my basic commands. I’m also housetrained, crate trained & walk well on a loose leash. My house manners are improving & do not require being crated very much. I will go in my crate when I’m asked & will be quiet unless there is something very interesting going on in my foster home. I’m a pretty large & muscular boy as you can see, but sometimes I still think I should be able to at least lie across your lap. I love to cuddle & get lots of hands-on attention. I also happy just finding a comfortable spot to lay & patiently wait for you to finish your household chores. I can get rather rambunctious when I play outside in my foster family's fenced back yard. I must've been encouraged by someone in my past to jump up to their hands or to get toys they were holding because I do this rather well. If you like to play like this too, then I am the dog for you! I get along very well with the other boxers, both male & female, in my foster home. I also do well with small dogs & cats. I came from a home that had a Chihuahua & a female boxer as my canine siblings. I am good around children although I sometimes have trouble knowing when not to jump up. I did not receive a very good tail dock, so the end of my tail stump will not grow hair. Other than that, I am a very handsome boy.Adoption Donation: $250.00

This handsome boy is Apollo. Apollo is 2 yrs old & weighs 78 pounds. He was surrendered by
his owner to a shelter who was no longer able to keep him. Apollo will require a home with no cats, we
don't know about small dogs. He gets along best
with large breed female dogs presently. He does well with some neutered large breed males.

he is pretty calm, although he has plenty of typical Boxer energy when it comes to romping & playing.
He enjoys having his head rubbed & getting all the attention he can. Apollo walks well on lead. He was kept
as an outside dog so he is working on becoming house trained & crate trained. He continues to make
good progress with. Apollo takes his time with each new experience & requires some patience & reassurance.

is willing to continue with his obedience training.
He doesn't like to jump into a vehicle when it's time to go for a car ride but he rides well once he's helped
in. He is up to date on all his vetting, microchipped & deserving of a loving forever family.
My name is Cecilia and I am about 6-7 years old. I was used for breeding and when I was no longer needed my so called 'family' dumped me at a shelter. I am in need of a forever home who will love me for me and not what I can do for them. I am a perfectly behaved girl.

girl was found trying to crawl out of a wooded area. She was so emaciated and sickly that she couldn't stand up on her
own. A farmer carried her to his home where is feed and watered her. He called the shelter who finally
found her owner. Her owner did not want her back. She had been nursing pups and was full of milk
when the farmer found her. Her owners kept her puppies but didn't want Addy. Addy is
6 yrs old and has scaring on her back, possible from a cattle prod. Her hair is growing in white on these areas. She
is a very laid back and loving girl who is perfectly housetrained. She doesn't need crated and listens
very well. Addy has been bred many times before and shows the results of continuous breeding.

Tatum is a very sweet 2 year old girl that was found running on a very busy street. The animal shelter kept her for two weeks, but her family never came to look for her. She is very affectionate and loves to give kisses and snuggle. She must have slept in bed with her prior owner because when we say it's bedtime she jumps up in our bed! She stays in her crate when we are at work and she is housebroken. She gets along with all dogs, big or small. She loves kids and even cries at the front window when the kids across the street are out playing! Tatum does not bark, unless it is absolutely necessary. If you are looking for a young dog with lots of fun energy, but one that is already housebroken, Tatum is your girl!

Lexie came to my home as a foster dog in September of 2009, she is approximately 2 years old. In the six months she has been living with us, she has developed into a very healthy, muscular beautiful boxer girl. Lexie has overcome most of her fears, but still is a little skittish with sudden noises and movements. She startles easily and runs, but immediately comes back when called. She no longer fears the leash, but gets excited to go “bye-bye” when she sees it.
Lexie loves to play in the fenced back yard with my border collie/lab mix and my Chihuahua/pug mix. They run, “wrestle” and “fight” with each other – all in good fun. I just took in a stray cat prior to finding a no-kill shelter for it. Lexie went up to the crate the cat was in and was wagging her little stump while sniffing at the cat.
Lexie has a sweet, loving personality. She is a little slower to make friends with men than she is with women, but she will make friends with them. She just needs to make new acquaintances slowly. If I wasn’t already sharing my little house with my sister-in-law and three other dogs, I would adopt Lexie myself.
My name is Izzy and I am looking for a nice family that will let me sit on their laps and go everywhere with them. I am potty trained, a wonderful snuggle bug, and will stay right by your side whether we are inside or out. I just had some major dental work done and am still on medication, but I take them without a problem. My tongue always hangs out the side of my mouth, but my foster mommy thinks it's really cute. I am about 6 years old and nothing bothers me! I love kids, dogs, and even cats.

Hi, my name is Preston. I was found in animal control along with my brother. He got adopted before the rescue could come to get me. That is very unfortunate for me because he was my "ears" I'm a deaf boy and feel totally alone in the world right now. My foster mom is working on my sign language, which I seem to be picking up pretty quick. Although I've lost my brother, I still want to get up and play with my other foster siblings. I love the tennis ball, as you can see in my video. Do you have what it takes to be my special new family? I promise to give you lots of love in return!
Luci Lu: Adopted
coming on Luci Lu
boy is Rocco. He is 1-2 yrs old. Rocco had no ID on when picked up by Animal Control & his
owner chose not to claim him. Luckily, Rocco made it into rescue. He weighs 55 lbs, although he could
stand to gain a few more pounds which he is working on. Treats really motivate this guy. He
has a very calm demeanor, walks well on leash, & enjoys playing with the other boxers in his foster home. Rocco
does well with children of all ages & loves having a family to cuddle with & care for him. He seems to know
he is supposed to potty outside & goes into his crate quietly when offered a few treats. Due to being on his
own outside, he is also heartworm positive & will be receiving treatment.
Dozer is 2-3 years old. More details will be posted shortly.
Cheeto is approximately 9 months old. He is a little small for his age due malnutrition
at such an early age. He is healthy now and ready for his forever home. Cheeto is a very sweet boy who gets a along well with

loves to be with her foster family and appreciates their love and attention. She loves going for rides in the car and waits
patiently while you run errands. She is crate trained and we are still learning where she stands with potty training. She

and is now looking for his forever home. He is a great boy who loves to play fetch and is full of love. He is well-behaved,
great with other dogs and is fully hearing, though he does need some leash training.
Isme have transformed into a beautiful girl during her time in rescue.
Ms. Layla is a tiny little girl of no more than 30 pounds. We estimate she is between 1-2 years old. Layla had been abandoned by her owners who sentenced her to a life outdoors. She was chained to a dog house in the cold snowy weather with no food or water. Being so small and with inadequate fur to keep her warm, Layla would not have lasted long in the situation she was in. Lucky for Layla, she was saved by the local animal control in her area and is now safe in rescue. She is such a sweet girl and we’re still getting to know her. She gets along well with the small dogs in her foster home and is doing great with her potty training. She does not mind being crated and walks well on a leash. Actually you could describe her walk as more of a PRANCE…she is such a cute little girl.

Bo Didley: Adopted
Bo Didley here. I am a beautiful 5-6 month old boxer boy. I am going to be a big boy, I certainly have the feet.
My foster mom is learning about where my house training skills are. I was adopted from a local shelter when I was 8
wks old and re-surrendered here at 5 months. I don't know many commands yet except sitting for those wonderful treats
the rescue ladies have for me. I am enjoying my new foster home; they have several dogs that love to play with me.
I get along very well with all of them here, cats we don't know about, but I am so young I would probably do well with
them. I seem to love everyone I have met so far. I am not crazy about the crate but they say it is for my own
safety when they are not home. I am learning, but would much rather play. Well gotta go, the girls are calling
is in the process of coming into rescue, more details will be posted shortly.
Get ready to fall in LOVE! Boomer is a handsome boy and he couldn’t be sweeter. Boomer is 4 years old. He is housebroken and crate trained. He’s fine to be left in the house while you are gone, however, if you are going to be gone longer than 3 or 4 hours it will be best to crate Boomer. Boomer is truly your typical playful boxer. He loves to play with toys, people, and other dogs. He is good with kids, but is better suited for older children because of his playful energy. Boomer knows his basic commands…sit, down, stay and is happy to shake your hand. Boomer will not get on the furniture unless invited. Boomer will be a great addition to almost any family.

training is improving all the time and he does not mind being crated. He likes to cuddle next to you on the couch or just
lean again you when he is sitting. It takes Mac a little time to become confident in new situations and looks to people for
reassurance. Mac loves to play with tug ropes & treat filled Kongs. He responds quickly to verbal correction
& treat rewards….he definitely wants to please you. He will do best in a home with kids 6 or older since he gets
pretty excited when he is playing. Mac walks nicely on leash and gets along well with the other male and female boxers in
his foster home.
Niki came in as a stray. It's pretty apparent that she was used in puppy mill and abused. When she first came in, she was afraid of everything-people, other dogs, the wind. Slowly, over the past couple of weeks, we have watched her come out of her shell as she regains her confidence. She is holding her head up high and is even playing with the others now. She has not had a single accident in her crate or the house. She enjoys being out with the family, but is also content to be in her crate. Our cat is perfectly comfortable in her presence. She is great with young children and we have yet to hear her bark. Loud noises still startle her briefly, but she is growing accustomed to the everyday noises of a home. She is estimated to be 4 years old. Won't you please consider giving Niki a decent life like she so deserves?
THANK YOU! Everything seems to be going just fine! I think we've decided to rename Gracie.
We were sort of thinking that since she will now have a whole new life, she needs a whole new name. I think we've
decided on Julep, as in Mint Julep. We wanted something
distinctly Kentuckian, and what's more Kentuckian than the Derby and bourbon? My husband seems to already have shortened
it to Julie, so we'll see. Koa (who has a distinctly Hawaiian name,
which is where he was born) seems to be smothering her with kisses and play time, but she's been handling him very well.
She's also been very well behaved and very affectionate with us. We just love her!
Gracie is a dainty little
girl just under 50 pounds. She is approximately 3 yrs old. It's apparent she was used for breeding & then
surrendered to a kill shelter. Luckily, she made it into rescue & was treated for heartworm disease. She is
now up to date on her vetting & heartworm preventative. She happily plays with toys & her foster siblings since
regaining her energy. She can play quite exuberantly at times. Her foster family is working with her on being
gentler when greeting new people & playing with children. She is crate trained & house trained, although
she needs extra reinforcement to go outside to potty when it's cold, rainy, or snowy. She is a girly girl that doesn't
like to get dirty & will tiptoe her way around outside, unless a playmate can engage her! She walks calmly on leash, loves
to cuddle up next to you on the couch for naps, & always has a kiss for you!
We are totally in love with Rosie! She is adjusting well to the house and getting along with Buddy, who is getting better with her. She goes outside and runs like crazy we have nicknamed her "wiggle, wiggle, zoom, zoom"! She is gaining weight and everyone who comes to the house loves her. She is happy and loves playing with her box of toys. We cannot wait until spring to let them out and really enjoy the entire yard. We plan to take her to the dog park to let her run. Buddy is older and we think he will enjoy his 'me" time alone. We are very grateful to have found Bluegrass Boxer Rescue and tell anyone who is interested in obtain a Boxer to consider adopting with your group. Our hearts are still saddened by the loss of our wonderful Shelby, but Rosie is helping with the pain.
Thank you again for insight in choosing the right girl for us.
Bob and Diane
Rosie's Mom and Dad
is a sweetheart. She is loving, gentle, and very smart! Rosie can sit, stay, and her favorite trick is playing fetch. She
is shy at first but once she gets to know someone she is super sweet. She is completely potty trained and has no
issue being in a crate. Rosie gets along with her foster brother and sister well but she is still learning how to play!
Rosie is good around children but has not been around cats yet. Rosie will make someone a great loyal and loving companion.
Charley & Carlos: Adopted
Charley are brother and sister who unfortunately found themselves in a shelter. Carlos and Charley are a bonded pair. Carlos
really relies on his sister Charley for comfort. They have been through a lot together and are hoping to
be adopted to the same home. Carlos and Charley are 5 months old.
CHARLEY is a very sweet little girl... that is until she has to
pin her brother down for aggravating her! She loves to cuddle with you and will put her head on your neck to sleep! She knows
basic commands and will give you her paw. Charley does very well with her house training and has very few accidents. She sleeps
all night in the crate with her brother. She plays good with kids and our other boxers. Charley weighs 28 pounds.
CARLOS is one tough little boy...
he backs up the whole time he barks! He has that perfect boxer pose and likes to come towards you boxing his paws to play.
He is a precious little fawn boy with a black mask. He sits on command and is working on 'come' . He is getting used
to walking on a leash. He sleeps all night in a crate with his sister. He has very few accidents in the house. Carlos loves
to play with our older male and female boxers and is good with kids. Carlos weighs 20 pounds.
is a 4 month old deaf puppy. He is a really special boy who is looking for a home that is willing to work
with his disability. Deaf puppies learn just like any other puppies. They can be taught basic commands by learning hand signals
instead of voice commands. Dilbert is crate trained but is still working on his potty training. We will
post more details on Dilbert soon.
I work at home and Stacy goes to work with Rocky and I every day. I love the companionship and the joy she brings to my life!
Thank-you Boxer Rescue.
Mike, Rocky, and Stacy Girl
came from a very high kill shelter. She is approximately 5 yrs old and has the most wonderful disposition. She
gets along very well with other dogs, has very good manners, is perfectly housetrained and doesn't need crated.
She doesn't get on the furniture unless invited. She loves playing with toys, other dogs, and lying near
you. Stacie knows some commands and is the most well behaved boxer I have had in my home. When she gets petted,
her whole body wiggles with excitement. Stacy would make the perfect addition to any home. She is
the perfect dog.
Libby is such a sweet little lady. She had a rough start to life but is on the mend. Libby was found in a rural area with
severe injuries to her head and neck. It is not clear exactly what caused her injuries, but it appears she was attacked by
another animal. Libby is potty trained and does not mind her crate. She is pretty laidback for a boxer but still enjoys playing
with other dogs and people. Libby gets along well with the other male and female boxers in her foster home.
is a sweet girl approximately 1 year old. Her eye was injured and had to removed, but she is on the mend and looking for her
forever home. Frost is deaf, but she is also a very sweet and calm. Since Frost is deaf, her adopters
will need to have a fenced yard. She gets along very well with all her foster siblings. She has been through a lot,
and we can only imagine how scared and confused she must be. Frost’s foster family is in the process of learning all
about her. Check back for updates on Frost.
Roxy is young and has lots of energy. She is crate trained, but still working on potty training. Roxy loves to play with our male and even tries to get the old girl up and playing! Roxy thinks kids are fun to play with too! She hasn't been around any kitties. She knows "Sit" "Lay Down" and "Down" commands. Roxy is brindle with a beautiful solid white neck and front legs. She is very striking. She is up to date on her shots, has been spayed and micro-chipped. Next thing, she needs her forever home. Could that be your home?
Gracie 2010: Adopted
is approximately 6 months old and a real sweetie. She gets along well with other dogs and enjoys wresting and playing with
her foster siblings. She is big on cuddling and enjoys being a “lap dog”. She has also been around 3 senior cats
and did not show any aggression towards them. She does try to get the kitties to play with her, but is smart enough to run
when they take a swipe at her. She does not have housetraining down yet, but is trying. Gracie is crate trained.
is 4 years old and weighs about 55 lbs. When Rosie was younger she had a bad back leg. It turned out that her knee cap was
located on the side of her leg. She had surgery done on her leg and now she has about 75 percent use of that leg. She never
lets the leg get her down.... she loves soft toys and being loved on.
Lilly is 9 months to a year old. Lilly is deaf but making amazing progress and being to learn her signs. She has already learned the command signs for sit, down, and stay. Lily has also learned how to ring our bell on the back door if she wants to go outside (it's too cute). She is so affectionate and playful. She knows that she must go in her crate when we are gone, however, she prefers not to be crated at night. She loves to run and play outside with the other dogs. Lily acts just like a typical puppy. If Lilly doesn’t have something to chew on and play with she will try to eat your feet or anything else around. We have not cat tested or kid tested her yet because we want to get comfortable with us first. We will post more on Lilly as we learn all about her in the weeks ahead.
Sheba is a sweet 18 month old little girl who is full of energy. Sheba will need lots of stimulation, attention & exercise. Taking her out several times a day to play chase with her foster siblings really helps release some of her energy. Because of her energy level, Sheba will need to go to a home with a fenced yard, no exceptions. She also likes playing with toys, and the kids in her foster home. She really seems to love kids and other dogs. Sheba has not been around small dogs or cats. Sheba also loves to go for car rides, plays with stuffed animals & likes to play tug-of-war. She sleeps good at night either in her crate or on the couch. She loves to cuddle up on the couch or in bed next to us & kids. Sheba continues to do well with her potty training. She will be a great companion for an active family.
Anna is approximately 3 years old. She is housebroke, crate trained, and knows basic commands. Anna likes to be the center of attention and will do best as an only dog. Check back soon for more details.
