Hi, I’ll be attending LnF Dog Rescue’s Adoption Event 'Home 4 The Holidays! Saturday 12/10/16 from 11-1PM. Would love if you came to meet me in person!! Details at

Be sure to view April's videos playing with her foster sisters below --

Not exactly sure but we think April might be a Sheltie/Collie mix with almost a rust color & her eyes match her coat. She’s just over a year old, only 22 lbs. April is getting prettier every day. April has a very sweet & gentle spirit. She loves to curl up on a chair or doggie bed. She has proven to have LOTS of personality. April is one adorable little lady & I think whoever adopts her will be so happy that you found this little treasure.

Given that she had been outside her whole young life, her ears are both fly-blown which means that flies literally ate the tips of her ears -- but she’s all healed now! When she arrived her coat was super dry & looked like an old dirty rug --- but she has been fed exclusively to help her gain her strength & now her coat finally has a lovely sheen.   

April’s had a very hard life in KY. Her Mom & siblings were captured by animal control but she escaped. Thankfully a very nice lady named “April” spent several days trying to capture her & finally she did. I saw her picture and she looked so terribly sad, I just wanted to bring her to DE so I could make her feel loved, safe & smile – yes dogs do smile!  

Because the 'family' in KY left her Mom & her siblings outside their whole life when April arrived we found she had a very odd disease. It was the 1st time my Vet had ever had to treat it here in our area.  It's called Canine blastomycosis & it's something that she contracted in KY. We're still treating it aggressively. This disease also caused a cataract in one of her eyes but she can see fine. Her disease is not contagious to humans or other animals. 

We would love to get her adopted or into a foster home with a quieter atmosphere & where she could get more individual attention. LnF Dog Rescue will pay for all of her medical needs - there would be no cost to you. She's not sickly as you can see in the video, she's active, plays with the other dogs and she extremely affectionate & just a very sweet & gentle little lady.  

For more info read our adoption requirements & if you can meet or exceed them you can apply here at my website.

About LnF Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

LnF Dog Rescue is a small foster based dog rescue that saves sheltered or abandoned dogs.

We are not a shelter, we rescue puppies/dogs from shelters. Our dogs are selected based on having gentle, sweet, & loving temperaments. They are socialized in our foster homes until they are ready to be adopted.

For complete details about our rescue & our dogs visit our website at

Come Meet Our Pets...

Since all of our pups/dogs are in foster care, we do require a pre-approved adoption application prior to meeting them in person.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our adoption fees and policies are listed at our website:

LnF Dog Rescue

All pups/dogs are already spayed/neutered, live in foster homes, are housebroken, crate-trained, up-to-date with all shots, & microchipped & have 30 days of FREE Pet Insurance.

Most importantly they all have sweet & gentle dispositions & get along with other dogs.

You must have current vet references & must have raised a dog or pup as an adult.

~ A fence is always mandatory and must be installed.
We will not consider any applications that do not have an installed fence.

We only accept a physical fence 4 foot or higher. Some dogs require a higher fence & that is noted in their profile.

If you are interested in a certain pup/dog, please read each profile to be sure the pup/dog matches your lifestyle. Our strict adoption requirements are based on our years of experience & unless you can meet our minimal adoption requirements .... you will not be approved.
