My name is Linus and I'm going to be 3 in December. Not sure what breed I am. Maybe mountain cur, maybe a dutch shepherd, maybe a combination of a bunch of breeds but who really cares about that stuff. What I do know is that I love playing catch, splashing in the creeks and hiking on trails. I even like being a running buddy. See, I'm one of those dogs just ready to go.
I am also really smart. My foster mommy says I always amaze her at how fast I learn.
Even though I am super fun, I do love to snuggle too. I promise not to hog the bed. In fact, if you like, I will wait on the side until you invite me.
But you should also know some other things. Although I currently live in a home with 4 dogs, I'd do best being someone's one and only. Oh, and that means no cats either. I do have a healthy prey drive so while I love to chase them, they just don't love it so much.
My foster mommy is taking me to training to help with my confidence, and I am working really hard. You would need to continue my training and help me to feel safe. You also should understand that I might need extra time for introductions. I am crate trained and sometimes when there are a lot of people over, I prefer my crate to being a social butterfly.
I may be quirky but I'm one terrific boy. Won't you make me your adventurer partner? I promise to be your very bestest friend and love you all of my days. ❤️Linus

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption application process for cats may take up to seven days, but will often be less. Since a home visit is required for dogs, the process may take slightly longer (often not more than 2 weeks). Application Forms are available under the ADOPT tab of our website (www.savinggraceanimalrescuemd.com). Please complete the application and click submit. You will receive a message that the application was submitted. The process consists of your completion of an adoption application, our review of the application and contacting relevant references, verifying the application information, a home visit (dogs only) and then contacting you with a decision about approval. Once the application approved, you will be put in contact with the foster to set up a meet and greet.

We understand the desire to meet our animals as soon as possible but because we operate entirely out of foster homes, we need to limit pet visitation to approved applicants only. Once your application is completed by you and approved by Saving Grace, we will be glad to schedule your visit.

You must be at least 18 years of age to adopt one of our cats / kittens 21 years of age to adopt our dogs / puppies. Depending on circumstances, we do occasionally make exceptions for the age requirement for dogs.
