RANSOM This handsome boy is very special.so special in fact he is awaiting adoption from his foster home. His foster mom has lots to say about him: Ransom is a very affectionate, 9 month old boy. In addition to his great looks, he is a social butterfly! He LOVES people and dogs and would happily spend his every waking moment with both. His favorite things are running and wrestling with other dogs, cuddling with his people, sniff walks, chew toys, and learning new tricks. This little man is very smart and loves to "forage" for his meals in puzzles, kongs, and other food dispensing toys. He is crate tolerant and will hang in his crate with chew toys and marrow bones. If maintained on a schedule he is 100% house trained. Ransom is working hard to learn manners (no jumping, no mouthing) and has come a long way. He has learned to wait patiently and "ask permission" before getting his meals and special toys. He is quickly mastering "sit" and "stay". Ransom is hoping to find a special person to continue teaching him so he grows into a well-mannered adult.
Little man loves other dogs so much it would be impossible for him to live without a doggy friend. His dearest wish is to be adopted into an energetic adult household with at least one other social dog family member.

The Maryland SPCA connects wonderful pets to loving owners. We are not affiliated with any national animal organization, and we do not receive any government or United Way funding. Our mission is to prevent cruelty and neglect of animals through fostering the humane relationship between animals and people. We operate primarily in the Greater Baltimore Metropolitan area.
To make sure that our dogs and cats do not contribute to the pet overpopulation problem, every one is spayed or neutered before going into a new home. The cost is included in the adoption fee, as are the costs of shots and other necessary care. In addition, a free Positive Pooch class is available to our dog adopters.
There is no set time limit for how long an animal can remain in our adoption program. As long as an animal maintains general good health and a sound temperament, we keep him or her until adopted. We pride ourselves on providing premium care to the animals in a clean, pleasant environment. Our adoption staff works diligently to pair up adopters with the best animal match for their homes and lifestyles.
We transport animals from other shelters to our adoption center to help more animals get adopted. We also help pet owners find new homes for their pets so their animals don’t need to enter shelter care.
