My three-legged rescue pit puppy Nona hates baths…but not as much as she LOVES mud! This time I caught her in the act and had to give her yet another bath! Sign reads: Mud is fun! (Especially right after a bath!) -Nona
This is mom’s favorite sweater.
I walked into the another room for about 10 seconds and when I came back Zoey had eaten ALL of our baby puppy’s food.
Our 5 month old Goldendoodle, Corolla, kept coming inside filthy…until we found this hole in the backyard of our rental. She dug through netting, rocks and a few questionable construction materials.

Sugar is a senior Beagle foster whose tongue always hangs out. She lives in Raleigh, NC an is being adopted through Calvin’s Paws. She has no problem licking anything and anyone with her crazy tongue. Adults are creeped out by it, small children are fascinated with it. Other dogs know where it’s been and want no part of it.

I rolled in something smelly just before my foster mom was going to take me somewhere. I am a smelly, guilty girl. But please adopt me!
Salus is an amazing 3 year old pit bull from Durham, NC. She’s being adopted through the Bue Ridge Boxer Rescue. She normally very good except when there is something smelly to roll around in. Salus must be an only dog with no other small animals in the home. She LOVES people: from kids to seniors. She has a great personality and other than a fetish for tearing up paper, destroying squeakies (hey they are annoying anyway), and the occasional smelly roll-around she is a perfect dog. Please consider her if you are look for a wonderful girl to share you’re home!!
These beautiful Labrador /Chesapeake Bay retriever girls are about 3 months old and perfect in every way. They’re available from Atlanta Lab Rescue in Atlanta, GA. They both love people and get along wonderfully with other dogs and cats. They are incredibly smart, housebroken, and will soon start to learn basic commands. Betty Boop is a bit more adventurous than her sister and will jump right into whatever seems like fun; Curly Sue tends to think before she leaps.
Betty Boop will probably grow to be about 45lbs; Curly Sue is smaller so will be less than 40lbs when fully grown. The only thing they like more than playing is snuggling-up on the sofa with their foster mom. They are both full of puppy-joy and are guaranteed to bring lots of smiles to whoever is lucky enough adopt them. More information could be found here.
These adorable pups had a very rough start in life, but their luck turned around on Mother’s Day weekend when they were rescued from a Memphis, TN dumpster and are now with the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County. When found, they were emaciated (the smallest, Poe only weighing 2.8 pounds), had ticks, fleas, roundworms, Giardia, and Coccidia.
Look at them only 5 weeks later – happy, healthy pups ready to be adopted! These sweet babies are also smart; they learned how to sit in only 2 days and are well on their way to being housetrained. Like the sign says, “Will sit for kibble” and just about anything else.
Ethel is a two year old miniature schnoxie or possibly a wirehaired dachshund mix. She is available through A.A.R.F. (All About Rescue & Fixin’) in Cookeville, TN. She is very loving, and after she learns to trust you will never leave your side! (Seriously, never, not even when you are in the shower or using the restroom.) She loves snuggles and belly rubs, and is more than willing to help keep the dust out from under your bed in exchange for being allowed to sleep on it! Ethel would love to have a little partner-in-crime/playmate her own size, but would be fine as an only dog as well. Her current foster home has three other dogs, but no kids or cats. We do know that she is fine with older kids, and she has been friendly with smaller kids during adoption events, but she has not been around any cats that we know of! Ethel shares a dog bed with her foster sister at night, and when the alarm goes off she jumps up, tail wagging to ensure that her foster parents do not oversleep. She would also like to add that she is a baby-gate hurdle champion, and is willing to pull her weight by making a careful inventory of your shoes. Ethel is mostly housetrained, crate trained, and walks well on a leash. She can be fearful of strangers due to lack of socialization, but has made great progress in this area. She needs a home that will continue to keep her socialized.

I nap gratuitously in my foster mom’s office as she reads up on training deaf dogs, like me! –Darby
Darby is a happy-go-lucky 1 year old boxer mix from Spencer, IN. He’s being fostered through the Owen County Humane Society. He loves chewing on rawhides, hiking, swimming, and playing with his 4-legged foster sister. Darby is deaf, but picking up hand signals fast. So far, he knows sit, stay, down, and come.
