Story
ABOUT DIOR Dior is a 2 year old terrier mix that loves her friends! Dior came to HAP in January, when she was found wandering as a stray in Wilmington. We were able to find her owner, but, sadly, they never came to reclaim her. Dior is confused to be here, but she is always sweet with our staff and volunteers. Dior is not a huge fan of other dogs, which has made the shelter environment extra stressful for her. She has been overlooked by adopters for her kennel presence, often seen barking or jumping. However, once she is out of her kennel and away from all the noise, she melts into an affectionate and goofy girl. Dior recently spent the day outside of the shelter, through HAP's Doggy Day Out program, where her true personality shined! Dior enjoys car rides and sprawling out in the backseat. She LOVED having a fenced yard to run around and get her zoomies out. Whether she is playing tug with you or tossing toys around on her own, she is super playful! After some exercise, she can be found leaning into the nearest person to soak up some love. She made a visit to our friends at Riverfront Pets to pick out a toy and some snacks, before heading back to the shelter. By the end of the day, Dior was snoozing away in her kennel, happy to have had such a fun and relaxing day! While Dior is seeking a home without other pets, she has previously lived with children and did well! She would likely do best with dog-savvy kids, as she has an energetic, silly playstyle! **Dior would need to be the only pet in your home. If you are interested in adopting Dior, please submit an adoption questionnaire! Our adoption process is on a first-come, best-match basis and we are not able to hold animals. If you are interested in this specific dog but it ends up not being the best fit upon meeting, our adoption counselors will work with you to help find a match! All household members, including children and other dogs, must come along for the meeting to make sure it's a good fit. If a match is made, we encourage same-day adoptions! Our adoption fees include the animals' spay/neuter, microchip, age-appropriate vaccinations and preventatives, fecal testing, heartworm testing, and a small bag of food to get you started.

ABOUT ZOEY This lady is a very, very sweet girl. Zoey is a 5.5 year old boxer mix that is sure to melt her way into your heart and lap! She came to HAP when her owner could no longer care for her. Understandably, she was really depressed her first few days in the shelter, often found shaking in her kennel. She has since opened up, showing us how affectionate and smart she is. Zoey knows tons of commands, including 'sit', 'sit pretty', 'down', 'stand', and knows gives you both of her paws. She is very laid-back and walks beautifully with a harness. She enjoys her walks and loves to sniff everything! If you are interested in adopting this dog, please submit an adoption questionnaire!

Story
Dog Name: Christopher Robin Breed: Boxer/Bulldog mix Sex: Male Age: 1 year Weight: 43 pounds   Medical Needs: None.    Housebroken: Mostly. Think of our sweet boy, Christopher Robin, as an 8-week old puppy in an 1-year old body. His background for the first 10 months of his life was one of neglect (at best). He was not given positive training to help him grow. His positive training started when he entered the shelter system at 10 months of age. This mental adjustment will help you understand him better.   On housebreaking, before coming to Grass Roots, he appears to have been beaten for pooping in his crate. He understandably now has a fear of pooping in the crate and will bloody his face to cover up any evidence if he has an accident, and initially would “pancake” when you opened the crate door anticipating the worst if he did have an accident. As a result, it took a while to get him to associate the crate with anything positive.    When he first came to us, I did not use the crate for housebreaking. Instead, I baby-gated him in the kitchen with his crate door open for his shutdown period and confined him to the kitchen when I left the house. I now do crate him when I leave, but try not to leave for more than 4-5 hours at a time. If I am out longer, he will sometimes pee in his crate.   When I’m home, I get him out every couple of hours to potty on a regular housebreaking schedule, and he now rarely has accidents in my house.    Also, at least for now till he leaves his past behind him, he can be a submissive urinator, so if you raise your voice, it’s pretty safe bet he’ll think you’re yelling at him and pee where he is. As a result, careful monitoring is needed when you first allow him any freedom to explore the house until he settles in and the housebreaking lightbulb fully clicks “on” for him. He’s old enough to know better, but no one has taught him and in fact the people in his past have impeded his making progress. He’s doing well now, given that we are simultaneously deconditioning him from his past and teaching him the expected behavior — but he’s not quite there yet. Patience is key!   Crate trained: He has had past bad experiences in a crate that need to be overcome. We are working on making the crate a positive refuge for him, so I feed him in his crate and I leave his crate door open most of the time. He always has a Benebone in his crate and will go into his crate to eat or when he needs a break during the day. He sleeps in my bed at night. Be forewarned — he snores!   Good in the car: Yes, he’s a good car traveler and rides in the back seat. (Initially, I crated him in the back of my SUV until he built up his trust in me and his comfort with being in my car, and would recommend his adopter do the same.)   Good on a leash: Yes, he is very attentive and takes his queues from me, and stays pretty close to me. He still is a bit “to-and-fro” while walking and will “pancake” if he gets nervous, but he likes to go for walks.   Energy level: Medium. Christopher Robin likes to run and is learning to play with the other dogs. He also settles well and is happy to quietly chew his Benebones. He can be pretty hard on stuffed toys. He paces himself well to the activity level of the other dogs in my house. If they are playing, he’s game for a romp. If they are snoozing, he’s in the middle of the pile — all in for a good nap.   Need a fenced in yard: He needs regular opportunities to get outside to go potty, so if no fenced yard, he’ll need leash walks every few hours. He will tear around and play with my other dogs, so the yard is handy to let him spend his energy, too, especially if you don’t want too much active play in your house.   Dog Friendly: Yes. If yes, does your foster need another dog in its adoptive home? Yes, another dog pal in the home would be good for Christopher Robin. Having a social outlet to interact with other dogs is a must for him. He loves to play with the other dogs in my home and is learning so much about how to be a dog from them that I think it would help him acclimate more easily to his new home. He has “packed in” well with my dogs and enjoys going to doggie daycare when they go.    Cat Friendly: He has only had limited interactions with my cats, but has given them a wide berth. So far, he’s been much more interested in their food than in having any interactions with them.    Kid Friendly: Unknown. If yes, what's the youngest child you'd recommend they be placed with? Age 10+. He’d likely be ok with dog savvy, quieter, respectful kids who are old enough to understand they need to go slow with him. He still gets nervous in new situations, so a loud active household would likely be too much overstimulation for him now — although I think he’d be ok with more activity once he settles in a little more. For now, he’ll need a quieter home, with dog savvy kids (or no kids). He is VERY hand shy and tentative when approaching new people. Sudden approaches or people bringing their hands down to pet his head reinforce his fears from previously being hit, so any kids would need to be old enough and respectful enough to learn how to approach him slowly and bring their hands from below so they don’t trigger his fear of being hit.   Special traits that make your foster special or that we need to know about them? This sums up our boy, Christopher Robin, in a nutshell — “I'm just a soul whose intentions are good Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood”   His records from the sending shelter say: “Behavior: undersocialized, dogs have been living in a crate in an SUV for the past week, originally gotten by owners from a house with multiple dogs.” Sadly, the crate in the SUV was an improvement over his prior living conditions.   This guy came to the shelter under nourished, undersocialized, neglected, and clearly beaten. He was under-sized and underweight when he came to the shelter and has gained 13 pounds since his intake. His GI system is still trying to acclimate from the months of neglect he endured, and he is doing well now on a “digestive diet” and probiotics. (Giving him people food quickly sends him into a bout of diarrhea.)   Despite his past, he’s a happy cuddler who loves to give wet, sloppy kisses to his favorite people. The sending shelter asked Grass Roots to take him because he was overwhelmed in the shelter environment and they felt that he’d make progress faster in a foster home equipped to help him get past his past. They were right! He has come so far in just a few weeks time and I am confident that he will continue to improve with patience, love, and consistency.    He is such a sweet, goofy, resilient guy who also happens to have the cutest underbite! We are looking for a patient home that will help him thrive and grow into the awesome dog that he can be!   ** Multiple meets will be required so that he can build trust with his new family before going home. **   Foster’s Location: Wilmington, DE   Application can be found here: https://www.grrde.org/adoption-application (if you already have an approved application on file email GrassRootsDE@gmail.com and ask the app team to pull your app). ##1980877##

Story
Brutus is a stunning boy with lots of strength. He's playful, goofy, and a big sweetie! He is unfortunately living his life confined to a bedroom, hoping someone can give him another chance at life.This sweet boy was surrendered 2 years ago because his owners decided to move without him. He was luckily adopted and has been very loved since then, but now he has run into another situation through no fault of his own. Brutus had a child with special needs move into his house. Although he's shown no aggression and has not had any issues with the child, his owner is concerned about the child not understanding how to interact with Brutus and therefore has to keep him separated. Instead of Brutus coming back to the shelter again to live in a kennel, his owner is keeping him until he can find a new home. It's not his owners fault and he is trying to do what's best for everyone, but unfortunately Brutus is suffering because of it. He isn't getting the exercise or attention he needs living his life in one bedroom, and he desperately deserves another chance at a family.He is a big boy with an even bigger heart, sweet as can be, and dog friendly. He has gained 15 lbs just since the recent change in his lifestyle, weighing almost 100 lbs now. He needs a family committed to helping him lose weight, and providing both the mental stimulation and physical exercise that he needs.He would benefit from some training to help him work on his leash manners as he was in a home that used an invisible fence, so he wasn't leash trained. A dog-savvy owner would be best for Brutus, as well. Please consider coming to Brutus's rescue and showing him what forever really means. He's ready for someone to give him the permanent home he deserves 🤎 Primary Color: Blue Brindle Weight: 92 Age: 3yrs 5mths 3wks

Story
CheeriO Mate! This kid is ready to leave here and go sit on your sofa. We often hear folks say some dogs are aloof and don't connect right away. Well, we'd like to introduce CheeriO who is one of our most engaging dogs. Hi Folks!CheeriO here. They said I should tell you about myself. So here it is: I like to gets my business done right away on walks and spend the rest of the time trying to get you to look at me. I like head scratches, ear scratches, belly rubs, hugs, kisses. Sometimes I don't even want to go far on walks. I'd rather sit in your lap. I had folks before looking after me, they would let me sit outside on the porch and stuff. Sometimes I like to scratch my back on stuff. I duck under fences to get a good scratch on. But if you can scratch my back, I'd like that a lot.l better. These people here say I'm small but I have big love to give. I love hanging out with these other dogs here. I really like to check out the chicks. Everyone here is nice and they give me food. They say I should have more food and that's fine with me. I'd rather not stay here. Can I come and live with you? Well then, think it over. CheeriO !

Story
Ivy is here spending her puppyhood in the kennels. Her previous owners did not spend much time working with her. Her attention span was not developed and is short but she is very smart, loving and playful.Ivy is a high energy teenager now. Weighing 50 pounds, she likes to run and be free. She likes to jump for joy. As with most teenagers, she does not like having a boss. She is passionate about all she does. She needs a smart dog family of hoomans to give her boundaries, training and love with a super sized serving of patience on the side. Ivy would do well with an active family. Running? You bet!!Hiking ?? Sign her up!! Line dancing✅ agility✅ rally✅ she is ready to go! Once she can stick the landing with a dedicated family who will not give up on her, the possibilities are endless for this happy girl. She has recently been visited an obedience trainer. She has walked well with her and has shown improvement. She likes to engage with other dogs, but she can be a lot for them to handle. She will probably want to be the boss of other animals and may not tolerate 2nd place. Her forever family will need to be firm with her and consistent with training and they will need to let her know they are in charge and she is not. She may not be suited for first time dog owners as she has a big personality and will need hoomans experienced with high energy dogs to work with her. She is not aggressive just very energetic with all life forms. She is very entertaining to watch. She loves to run around and dive into the play yard pools...even in January! She is tons of fun with a toy, and that can help redirect her attention when she starts getting overly excited. Reviews from her fan club:"Ivy is a very smart dog, she has puppy energy."Chris Kennel staff and Meet and Greet specialist. "Ivy has a sweet soul and a great sense of humor. I enjoy spending time with her. She plays hard and loves her toys. She will be a great dog once she can get out of the kennel environment and finish being a puppy in a loving home that will help her be her best self through training."Terza (volunteer)Ivy considers her breed combo to be: part German peppered Dog, part Great Plane, and part Doberman pitcher🤣 check out those ears!!
