This is my foster dog Mr. Stubbs. He is a white German Shepard and basset hound mix who lives near Alpharetta, GA. I am being fostered through Angels Among Us Pet Rescue. He has the full Shepard body and the basset legs. He is crate and house trained. He is supper sweet and gets long great with dogs and cats. He loves to throw his toys in the air and catch them. He is however high heart worm positive and will not go to his forever home until he has completed all his treatment. Here is his petfinder profile.
Lexie is a young mastiff/bulldog mix who is nearly 90lbs and can make grown men cry with her farts. One end is drool, the other is gas. The middle is usually wiggling with joy at the attention of any human. She is currently in eastern PA, and we adopt throughout the New England area. Lexie is with Red Hook Dog Rescue, a small NYC rescue that focuses on special-needs dogs.Lexie’s favorite thing to do is roll on her back for bellyrubs… and then toot her contentment. Because what you really need when you’re bending down close to rub her belly is a weapons-grade air biscuit launched into your face in thanks. Lexie loves, loves all people — truly she has never met a stranger. She plays a little rough for small kids, so we’d rather see her in a home with 12 and up. She will chase small critters so cannot be in a home with cats or small dogs. How fast can a dog with three legs run, you might think? FAST ENOUGH. Oh, yes, about the three legs thing. Lexie is indeed a tripod. It does not bother her in the slightest. She is healthy, spayed, up to date on shots, is housetrained and has basic obedience training. Lexie would like a big (65+) male dog as a buddy/playmate, though… so those of you with big naughty boxers that need more exercise so they’ll stop eating mattresses and sheetrock out of boredom, consider Lexie! She also has a full training scholarship so although she has basic obedience, her new owners would get free sessions with a good trainer local to them! We would LOVE to find Lexie a home in time for Christmas, either foster or adoptive.
Crosby is a 2.5 year old neutered Golden who was brought to the vet yesterday with an ear infection. Later in the day the vet received a fax saying that the owner had fallen on hard times, was living in his car and was surrendering the dog because he could no longer take proper care of it. EDIT: CROSBY WILL BE TRANSFERRED TO LAB RESCUE ON DECEMBER 19TH WHERE HE WILL BE ASSESSED AND PLACED WITH A FOSTER HOME UNTIL HE CAN BE ADOPTED.

Exercise?! Bah Humbug! Dozer is an 8 yr old English Bulldog who is available for adoption through the Etobicoke Humane Society. Dozer is an incredibly calm, gentle and patient dog who is happy just going along with whatever is happening (so long as it does not involve running a marathon!). He loves being around people and would make a great companion dog. Typical of his breed, he is a low energy dog with light exercise requirements. For more information about Dozer please contact the Etobicoke Humane Society. Their contact information is found here.
Only Mulligan knows that those midnight howls, growls and yips are for. Momma thinks he’s dreaming about a forever home with a big yard where he can run and play outside all day and a big comfy couch he can curl up in at night! Mulligan is an amazingly smart young guy. He’s adoptable dog through All About Rescue & Fixin’ (A.A.R.F.) in Cookville, TN. You can learn more about him here.
This is Niko, and this is how he rolls: In the grass. In the mud. In the seaweed near the shore (he loves to swim). In the dirt. In fact, we think Niko has some sort of pathological aversion to being white and would prefer to be dirt-coloured. He is a middle-aged pit bull with traffic-stopping, ice-blue eyes for adoption through Red Hook Dog Rescue. Here is Niko’s profile. He must be an only pet as he is fearful/aversive to other animals, but he is such a cuddlebug he is all the dog you need! He is a shade under 60lbs, healthy, up to date on shots, neutered and BORN TO SNUGGLE. Mellow, medium/low energy. Non-destructive in the home. He loves fetch, and loves to swim. His dream adopter would be a single person or a couple with bully breed experience, with a fenced yard! Niko is in New York City at the moment but we will adopt throughout the Northeast/New England area.
Nutmeg is a 4-5 year old Beagle who lives near Rockaway, NJ. She is being fostered through Eleventh Hour Rescue. She is a very calm, loving girl. Nutmeg loves going on walks, eating and getting hugs and kisses. She recently had a litter of puppies but is finally ready to go to her furever home. She gets along with other dogs although she does not play with them and seems to prefer the calmer dogs that do not crowd her. Josie is an 8 months old mixed breed brindle puppy and currently weigh around 35 pounds. She is being fostered through Eleventh Hour Rescue. I won’t be a big girl and will probably weigh around 45 pounds when I’m all grown up. I’m currently in a foster home with dogs and kids. I am crate trained and housetrained. I was born in an abandoned house in Georgia. My siblings have all found homes, but I’m still waiting. My foster family tells me that they saved the best for last (that’s me!).
Brooks is a 10 month old coonhound mix from the West Suburban Humane Society in Downers Grove, IL. He loves other dogs SO MUCH that when he pulled away on a walk and got lost, he decided to hang out with a pack of coyotes. He is happy to be “home,” because coyotes don’t have tennis balls! He knows basic obedience, walks well on a leash, and would love to live with another playful pooch.
