Story
From Foster: Hello, my name is Lady, and I've had that name ever since my humans made me a part of their family when I was little. For years I lived with human kids and my younger dog sister who looks almost exactly like me. Recently my dog sister and I met another human family - actually, a big group of humans acting like family - when my original human family had some trouble and needed my dog sis and me to stay with someone else for a while. We met our new human family and their two dog siblings - we immediately starting having fun together. Things changed, my dog sister went back with our original family. I'm OK though - I have my new family and new dog friends. We stay in the house during the day; the humans think we sleep all day but I assure you we do fun things together! in the afternoons and evenings we play in the yard, go for walks, and snuggle up on the couch. I don't bark or jump on people, and I walk really well on the leash (I just need to stop and sniff things a lot). I can be home all day without having to be let out (remember, the humans think I'm sleeping all day). I love my toys, especially the plushy ones and chewing on nylabones - I often have a toy in my mouth. I would love to be part of your family - adult humans, small humans, other dog friends, maybe even cats. Meet me and let me show you how special I am!

Story
From the Foster: Ajax is a gentle, sweet guy approaching 9 years old. He requires moderate levels of daily exercise and has pep in his step! His favorite activity is fetching his rubber ball in the yard. He is a solid guy that might pull a little on walks to sniff something special so the handler must be strong enough to redirect him. Ajax is indifferent to other dogs, he will walk past them with barely a look. In our home, he is very respectful of our grumpy 11 year old small dog and they basically ignore each other. Ajax has recently begun a veterinary prescribed weight loss plan with the goal of losing 13 pounds to get him to his ideal 53 pound size. This will require a potential adopter to feed twice daily at the prescribed quantities and limit treats during the day. He has been doing great on this plan and enjoys hugs and "good boy" pets rather than treats anyway! He is very much motivated by food and will lay in the kitchen watching intently while the humans are preparing food however, he does not beg or try to jump up. Ajax will thrive best in a home where the humans are home most of the day. He would be a great companion to empty nesters, retired and work from home parents that enjoy multiple daily walks to keep him stimulated. He is a quiet dog and only barks as appropriate to alert us to a delivery van, someone at the door, unusual noises, thunder/lightning. He follows us around the home often throughout the day and has displayed a little anxiety/panic whining when he is left alone for short periods but hoping this improves once he's been here longer and more comfortable in his new environment. He has a few old guy "lumps and bumps" on his belly but all have been tested and nothing of concern. Ajax is taking a daily joint supplement Dasuquin for joint health as he ages. This supplement can be purchased at pet stores and over the counter. Ajax is not tested with Cats and it is unknown if he is crate trained. He is a champ at going to bed and sleeps quietly on his orthopedic bed for a solid 8 hours until his humans get up.

Hi! I'm Red. I'm from Missouri. From his foster: Red is a super sweet and affectionate boxer bulldog mix. He is good with people and other dogs, but we are not sure about cats. Red is very quiet and so far hasn't reacted when people have come inside the home. He doesn't need much exercise; a few 5 - 10 minute walks per day, or a few times outside each day in a fenced yard are enough. For these reasons, he would probably do well in any type of home environment. He is very friendly and insistent on approaching people and other dogs on walks, so we are working on his leash manners. Red is very treat motivated, so he will need to continue his training with treats on hand. Red is crate trained, potty trained, and he loves going on car rides. Red can be a little stubborn on walks when a person or another dog catches his attention. He also tires quickly on his walks, especially when it is warm outside.

Hi! I'm Monkey. I am from Texas. From her foster: Monk (aka monkey) is a sweet girl that is eager to please! She loves her humans and wants to hang with the family, but will go in her kennel upon command and does not whine, cry or bark in protest. Monkey walks well on a leash and is working on learning basic commands like sit, down, leave it, off. Monkey has been on a regular schedule and has not had any potty accidents inside. She is an inquisitive, sweet, cuddler and will make a great family pet! She has been a great playmate for our 10 & 12 year old kids. Although, at times, Monkey can enter full puppy mode and get a little wild. She has met our two cats and seems to be a tender, gentle pup that is curious but wouldn't try to hurt them. Her fur is soft and her ears feel like velvet! She has pink skin and thin hair, sun screen may need to be a consideration for this sweet girl.

Hi! My name is Karen and I am from Kentucky! From her foster: Karen is such a sweet puppy! Her favorite activities include exploring outside for as long as possible, playing with her sisters, and finding cozy nooks to nap in. She is pretty independent, but does love attention from time to time. She can be a bit shy when meeting new people, but has warmed up to all people/kids she has met, and she loves other dogs. Potty training and crate training are still a work in progress. She is highly food motivated, so she should have no problem picking it up with some more time.

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Thank you for stopping by to see me!  Please fill out an application to set up  a private meeting.    Hi there! I’m Stella, a 3-year-old Boxer Bulldog mix. I’m a relaxed and lazy girl around the house, always on the lookout for a cozy spot to chew on my favorite bone or snuggle with my foster siblings and humans. One of my favorite pastimes is watching the neighborhood squirrels from the window—I've gotten so good at calmly observing them without barking! My favorite toys are filled bones, my two beloved pink toys that I love to shred, and a stuffed elephant with a squeaker that I love to destroy. While I'm not the biggest fan of being outside, I've grown to enjoy my daily walks, especially now that I'm more comfortable on a leash. A big yard with a tall fence would be great for me, especially for potty training and using up some energy. I'm making huge strides in my leash training and learning how to go on walks. Having another dog in my foster home show me how has been helpful. Speaking of potty breaks, I’m doing great with potty training, although have had accidents in my kennel. I usually go potty on the concrete or the back porch, but I’m learning to use the grass too! I’m very smart and have been working hard on my house manners and know some cool commands like 'Sit,' 'Come,' 'Kennel/Crate,' 'Outside,' and 'Go Potty.' I absolutely adore kids, but I can get a bit excited and might accidentally knock over small children. I’m working on being gentle but don’t always know my size. I love to play with other confident dogs after a slow introduction and enjoy running and playing with them. I do get excited around cats at first, but once I settle in, I mostly ignore them. I’m what you would call a high-energy dog and it can appear as high energy reactiveness when I meet new dogs, so an experienced dog owner that can do proper introductions would help me remember to be polite and thrive.  I’m a sweet, loving girl who would thrive in an active family with dog experience and perhaps some kids to play and cuddle with. I need a confident pet parent who understands different play styles and dog body language to monitor me during playtime. I promise to bring lots of joy and love to my forever family. Could that be you? Love, Stella *Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders. Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Each dog receives basic grooming when coming into rescue, but for some dogs they have not received grooming attention until recently and grooming may be required shortly after adoption.

I’m Colton, the silliest boxer boy there ever was. I live for toys and I trot around like a champion and show it off to my humans when I find a good one. I also love to go on walks with my human. We are working on not pulling on the leash and I am a quick learner but do need a reminder once in awhile. I am potty and crate trained.

Hi there, I'm Precious. They say that I am called this because I am the most precious dog here at God's Dogs Rescue. I came to the rescue in October of 2022 to have a safe place for me to have and raise my puppies. All my puppies were adopted by the end of January 2023, but I am still here looking for my furever home. I am a bigger girl, but this just means there is more of me to cuddle you, because I love cuddling it's one of my top 3 favorite things. 1) Food- I love food and will do almost anything you ask if you have a treat involved. 2) Cuddles- on your lap, on the couch, in the bed wherever there is a comfy space with pillows or a human I want to be there. 3) Kisses- I have a love of giving kisses to people, especially kids. Although not everyone likes it when I try to kiss them and that makes me sad. 4) Honorable mention- I like going on walks or in the car for a ride, although I prefer just lazing around at home. My current fosters say that I am a "house hippo with springs in my feet whatever that means; I just know sometimes, when I get super happy, I feel like I could fly- or jump really high. I love their kids and am very good with them even the tiny ones. I get along with most other dogs I meet, although I have a big personality about me, because I'm a boss, so sometimes other dogs don't like that about me. I tolerate cats although if they give me too much attitude or growl at me, I can't help but to give them piece of my mind. I like most new people I meet although I had a rough start in life so sometimes, I can be a little wary with men, with time though I adjust, and we can become best friends forever. A few more little details about me: I am 3 years old I am a Boxer/Shepherd mix I am great with kids I am good with Cats and Dogs I am crate-trained I am housebroken I can be adopted in Texas or anywhere in the US too! Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $400 (includes transport to your area, $50 temporary fuel fee will be included)

WE ARE A TX BASED RESCUE. THIS DOG IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN TX AND WILL BE TRANSPORTED UPON ADOPTION. Please fill out an adoption application found at haydudeequine.org Heidi - You are the bridge between what was and what will be, my pathway to a new life! My name is Heidi, full of youthful exuberance for life, innocence and curiosity. Ready to crawl right into your heart (won't take long either!!) and be a part of a family...YOUR family! I am still a youngster yet, a big puppy at heart! I have lots of energy and am quite agile. I could be a great candidate for obedience classes and maybe even some fun ones like agility classes. I'm a smart cookie (i know cuz my foster mom tell me so!) and catch on quickly. At 11 months and around 45lbs, I shouldn't get much bigger at my adult weight. What a perfect size for...everything! Neighborhood strolls, nature hikes(aaaah, all those wonderful tantalizing smells), camping, being a co-pilot for errand runs or trips to the park! You name it, I'm ready to give it a whirl and have a blast too (with whatever it is) just cuz we're doing it together!! And the bestest part is that I'm also small enough that I don't hog the whole couch for my cherished cuddle time!! My foster mom wanted you to know this about me - -she is housebroken -she wants to be a lap dog; -she would fit well with an adult home with older children; -with her high prey drive she should be in a home without small dogs or cats but will do well with her size or larger size breed of dogs; -she is a fast learner and will shine with an owner that will include her in their everyday life adventures; -she is crate trained; -she follows basic commands and walks well on leash; -she thrives on daily walks; -she’s a family dog and will make a fabulous family member; -she loves walks, hikes, exploring, tug of war and games using her nose and sparking her intelligence; -she’s quite agile and shows ability in figuring out how to jump over or crawl under set obstacles. She is happy, fun loving and eager to bring joy to her forever home! As my short sleek coat is low maintenance in the grooming department, making me more of a wash-n-to type of gal. And you do know what that means don't you?!! Oh yep yep, lots of extra time in the 'spoil me rotten' department. And you know that's what it's all about!! ;) Big on personality, smart and inquisitive, affectionate and sweet, my oh my I have a boatload of great traits going on, oh and don't forget my stunning good looks, to make me a great family addition, I just need the family...could it be YOUR family?

A portion of Coco's adoption fee has been sponsored by her friends at The Murray Fund. The adoption fee sponsorship credit of $275.00 will be applied during the contract process Hi, my name is Coco! From the Foster: A typical day with Coco, I am home with Coco all day, with the exception of appointments, errands, etc. After nearly 2 years in our home, Coco has settled in and become a delightful companion dog. She gets along well with, and seems to take cues from, my black lab with a calm temperament. I have modified living arrangements such that the cats are kept separate from her- she seems to have high prey drive and due to limited vision perhaps cant really tell them apart from a squirrel. I had hoped after this long hearing and smelling them, and occasionally seeing them through the gate, she would have become accustomed to them, but alas she is just not a kitty dog. I keep Coco's medication pretty consistent, aiming for 12 hours apart. Coco and Lucy (my resident dog) both sleep on my bed all night. They don't get up until I do, and are great about going right outside and then in to eat and Coco has her oral meds, eye meds, and insulin. She is a champ taking her meds, doesn't resist at all. Throughout the day, Coco and Lucy go between my office and bedroom, taking long naps (they are 9 after all). Coco loves to race outside into the fenced yard with Lucy and search for real or imagined critters. The only thing that deters her is rain! A strange sound or presence will get her raising the alarm, but she settles down quickly and back to her sniffing and taking long luxurious naps in the sun. She may alarm due to her limited vision, but no significant limitations. Coco loves to be where I am, and would rather tag along in the car than be left behind, but thanks to occasional medication and my very mellow black lab, she is feeling more secure and safe as time goes on. She does fine out of the crate in the house, does not chew on unacceptable items, and can wait several hours to go outside. She has never had an accident indoors. Coco loves a long walk, especially a leisurely sniffari. Due to a lot of training, she is not nearly as concerned about other dogs out on walks as she used to be. I try not to get too close for comfort for her, and help her feel safe and confident. SHH can set an adopter up with ongoing training, too. She is pretty stressed, though, if she cant get out of perceived threat area, so instead of dog parks or busy recreation areas, we stick with the familiar neighborhood and a quiet regional nature park. Evenings are super-relaxed. Right after eating their dinner, both pups settle in for reading, watching a movie, or going to bed early. Coco loves to lay on the couch next to a warm body. She isn't a lap dog, not a hugger, but does love to snuggle. Through the course of my veterinary care at The Bond Between it was found that I have diabetes mellitus, hypothyroidism, and mature cataracts. Luckily, my foster and the doctors at The Bond Between and BluePearl took great care of me, and I am now ready to find my forever home! I had surgery for my cataracts, and I can see much better now. Future adopters should know that due to my multiple endocrine diseases, I will need to continue to work with a primary veterinarian, as well as an internal medicine specialist (I am currently under the care of Dr. Mazepa at BluePearl.) To manage my diabetes, my adopter will need to administer insulin everyday, as well as monitor my glucose levels with the guidance of a veterinarian. I am also on medication for my hypothyroidism. It is recommended that discuss with my future vet clinic about recommended follows ups and labwork (CBC, chemistry, UA, Fructosamine and T4).

Hi, my name is Rocket! I'm an owner surrender from Minnesota. From the foster: Rocket has been living with us for just over a month now. She's such a love! She wasn't super responsive to her name, and we didn't think it was quite the right fit for her. We've started calling her Mary Lou, as in gymnastics legend Mary Lou Retton. Like her namesake, Mary Lou is strong, athletic, determined, on the shorter side, and an absolute sweetheart! She is incredibly smart and will win your heart over very quickly with her silly ways and expressive face. Mary Lou LOVES to play! Chewing on her stuffed animals, running and playing fetch with a tennis ball, and zoomies in the backyard are all highlights of her day. Snacks and snuggly naps are right up there too. If you'll allow it, she'll scooch right up beside you and rest her head next to yours on your pillow. Her soft snores kick in almost instantly. Its adorable! Mary Lou likes routine. She is ready for bed pretty early (all that playing will tire a girl out!) and sleeps well through the night. She is 100% house trained and hasn't had any accidents. On the days when the backyard has been extra muddy we wipe her feet with a rag when she comes in the back door. It only took one time for her to learn this! She has a crate, and will go in there on occasion, but mostly she prefers the couch, our bed, or one of her blankets. She comes when called, knows how to sit, and is pretty good with stay. She sits and waits while we put her meals down. She's pretty good about sitting - and sometimes lying down - waiting for you to throw one of her toys. I don't know exactly how she does it, but sometimes she gets so excited when you're about to throw a stuffed animal that she does this sort of moonwalk dance. It's hilarious! Mary Lou has had a lot of change in her one year of life. Luckily, she is really smart and it isn't taking too long for her to adapt to our home. When she first got here she was pretty jumpy over the smallest noise, but she's settling in well. Things we are working on: * It takes some time and some work to get Mary Lou comfortable with new people. We haven't introduced her to any other dogs at this point. * She does not do well on walks. She pulls, and she is very strong. She isn't very reactive towards people on walks, but she is to other dogs. It's something we're working on. * I've tried explaining to her that we live in community, and that there are going to be people, cars, bicyclists, and other dogs walking by the house. She's getting better, but still barks when this happens. * When she's overly excited, like when we come home from being out, she sometimes jumps up and will get a little mouthy. It's not bad and possibly will continue to improve as she feels more settled and gets more training. We are beginning work with a trainer this week. Mary Lou is a real gem! She is so smart and well behaved. We know with some training she'll quickly become a perfect pet to join your family! If we were in the position to share our home full time with a dog, we would have been almost immediate foster fails. We love her a ton! It's such a treat to watch her learn and grow and relax every day. Are you thinking about putting in an application for me but you're seeing that I may need some help with training? Not to worry! My adoption comes with training support because The Bond Between wants to help me and my forever family. They know that some dogs need some extra support after adoption and they are all about setting me up for success. You can ask to speak to a trainer if you'd like more information about it. The trainer will tell you that I am worth it!

Story
A portion of my adoption fee has been sponsored by my friends at The Murray Fund. The adoption fee sponsorship credit of $250.00 will be applied during the contract process Hi my name is Bill and I am from Minnesota. From his foster: Meet Bill (also known as Bill-da-bear, Billy, or Big Head [fondly])! He's a wonderful little pup full of love and kisses who wants to find a family to share them with forever. Bill's quick stats: Fully housebroken Fully crate trained No separation anxiety - you can leave him home alone and he'll just nap while he waits for you to return Obsessed with food (which makes training a breeze!) Very people friendly - will lean into you for pets and loves a good snuggle Humongous gigantic adorable face (big bonus) When he's set up for success, Bill can make dog friends. His interaction with dogs inside of a home, as with any animal, requires a transition time. When he moved into his foster's home he was unsure of the resident black lab at first, but was allowed to gradually get used to having a canine roommate in a low-stress environment with the help of baby gates. After a slow introduction, Bill and his foster's resident dog are now great friends and coexist extremely well! He does love to play (with humans and familiar dogs alike), and because he is a medium sized dog we recommend caution with toddlers as they can get underfoot. Cats that aren't extremely confident and don't like to play may take some time getting used to having Bill in the house, as he's been very keen to chase squirrels and rabbits on walks. His baseline energy is relaxed, but Bill vibes off the energy in the room, so if you get excited for play time Bill is ready to go! He would make a great running companion but is also content to bounce around the backyard fetching a ball for a bit, then lounge around chewing on his favorite bone. Bill has been to social events and has done fantastic. He was the dog of the game at a St. Paul Saints game and was amazing with all the kids and adults coming up to him and giving him pets. All in all we know that you will love him, and as much as we will miss our little Bill-da-Bear we are so happy knowing he is going to a home with a family that will cherish him!
