Story
Hello! My name is Hillary aka CoCo! I am a super sweet Chesapeake Bay Retriever. I am about 3 years old and weigh approximately 62 pounds. I have a lot of energy! I love going for walks but sometimes I get distracted by squirrels, birds and humans. Sometimes I pull and need to be corrected. I LOVE going to the park. I run and run and run. I have made many friends-mainly my foster sister, Bosco. We play and play and play until my foster mom has had enough. I have a boyfriend in the neighborhood and his name is Moses. He too is a golden/Chesapeake combo. We see each other and give kisses. I also have 2 other boyfriends that Moses does not know about-Yogie, who is a Rhodesian ridgeback, and Leo, who is a German shepherd. We are always having play dates!! Oh… I forgot Knuckles-the neighbors bulldog. Knuckles was kind of in my face. But I dog-checked him and we are good. So bossy that one! My foster mom has said I have made a TON of advances. When I was placed with her, I would not eat dog food or eat snacks. I now LOVE dog food; and eat tons of snacks. I LOVE bananas, sweet potato, green beans-and of course dried beef liver and dried chicken. I was super skinny-but I have gained weight!! I was also not house trained. I now go outside and do my business. I feel bad because I was so confused before. But my foster mom has been great and I love her with all my heart!!! At some point, I think I was water deprived, so I am a water gorger. Mostly I just eat ice now. I love it and its my go-to. But sometimes I will gorge at the park, and then forget and make a mess in my house. I have to remember that eating ice means going potty outside. And drinking water also means going outside. One time, my foster mom took me to the drive through at Bojangles. I hated it!! I barked at the lady taking my order and then I would not eat a Bo-round. My foster mom was shoving that thing in my face the whole 2 blocks home. First, she shouldn’t be going to fast food, and second, not everyone likes fast food. She tried that same crap when we went through the drive through to get “the Lord’s chicken.” I’m just not a fan of waffle fries. I am not kennel trained. But there is really no need for me to be. I have only chewed on approved dog toys and when I nap-I am either on the couch or on the dog bed. My foster mom got a camera to keep a watch on us when she is away. She was bummed when she found out that me and Bosco mainly just sleep on the couch. I haven’t done anything bad, not compared to Bosco. She’s the one that needs training. One thing I taught Bosco was to look out the window. I love the window and love watching what is happening outside. And Bosco taught me to fetch!!! I’m kind of still new at it, but love a good ball launch!! When we went to the park the other day, I played with the neighbor kids. I just love them!! I am always down for snuggles. And I snuggle hard. I love having my ears petted and generally having quiet time. I just want to be loved!!!

Story
Dog Day Out, 5/18/24:We took Hulk for walks, coffee run, and the farmers market!Volunteer notes, 5/2/24:Hulk and I have spent quite a bit of time together now and I can`t believe he`s still in the shelter. He is such a playful, thoughtful, trustworthy boy every time I take him out, whether it`s on the leash or in the play yard. Each time we play together, he becomes more trusting. This time he let me sit next to him and hug him. I got a wonderful sloppy kiss in return! He seems to be a very clean dog who always keeps his white paws spotless. He does well with my husband but I get the sense he`s a ladies` man at heart. The name `Hulk` might make him sound big and imposing but he`s really on the small side for a large dog and so very gentle. This charmer deserves a loving home!Dog Day Out notes, 4/29/24:Hulk is the sweetest and most affectionest baby. He wouldn`t get in the car so I had to lift him into the back seat, immediately he jumped into the front and wanted to lay in my lap or lean against me. He had no problem getting out of the car and was very excited to enjoy our day together. We walked Lake Michael and he did great on the leash with minimal pulling. He loves to smell, so we did a lot of sniffing and a lot less walking which was fine. We enjoyed our surroundings, meeting dogs and people as we walked along. We also went to Great Bend Park and enjoyed walking and the waterfall. We even got chance to get our paws wet! Hulk is such a sweet dog, not a sound out of him, just lots of tail wags and smiles. Volunteer notes, 4/24/24:There are so many nice dogs at the shelter but Hulk just might be my favorite. I can`t possibly visit without taking him out for some playtime. He is truly an all-around excellent dog. He is playful yet calm, energetic yet attentive, and immediately people-friendly without requiring any special handling. We walked him on leash today and after some initial hesitation at the front door, he did beautifully--no pulling at all. He has such a sweet face and waits so patiently to be taken out; I can`t understand how someone hasn`t scooped him up yet.Volunteer notes, 4/18/24:We loved spending time with Hulk in the play yard today! He was calm and well-behaved on the leash. He was interested in the dogs around him but able to be redirected. He knew `sit` and took treats gently but wasn`t overly treat motivated. He was active and playful but also laid down for lots of pets. Such a nice

Meet Wraven, a loving, spirited sweetheart! Her favorite activities are playing fetch in a fenced yard and chewing on a peanut butter-filled Kong. If you can throw a tennis ball, you'll have a friend for life in Wraven! Wraven is an intelligent girl who loves to shake hands, and has also mastered Sit, Bed, and Drop It. She sleeps through the night without a peep, and often enjoys slow mornings in her crate. Wraven is always happy to spend time with her people, and she shows her affection with lots of kisses, cuddles, and requests for belly rubs! Wraven has interacted with young children very gently but she is a big girl who needs a family who will provide good supervision around little ones. Although Wraven has cohabitated with two cats, she loves them too much and likes to chase. Wraven is practicing walking calmly on a leash. She greatly wants to meet and play with other dogs she sees! Training and patience will help Wraven become the best walking companion. PHYSICAL Wraven has a silky black coat and warm brown eyes. HEALTH Wraven is up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed, microchipped, and heartworm negative. HISTORY Wraven's previous owner brought her to a local shelter because of financial hardship.

Story
Anyone would be lucky to adopt Lucky Dog! Exceptionally sweet and affectionate, smart, great with adults and kids alike, and fun to be with, he is all ready for a loving home! He is on the lookout for an active family who likes taking dog walks, hiking, and even running. A fenced yard is ideal but not required. Lucky loves other dogs and likely would enjoy a dog buddy to live or play with. He would be best in a home without cats. Lucky Dog is house-trained and sits patiently for treats and while his harness is put on (check out his video!) and he does very well on his leash walks. He clearly loves car rides because when a visitor opened her trunk to get something in there for him, he jumped right in! Lucky Dog loves snuggling, and he wrapped himself around her legs, wanting nothing more than to be petted. HISTORY Lucky Dog was found in a rural county and his finder brought him into IAR to help find a forever home. HEALTH Lucky Dog is up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, heartworm negative, and neutered. PHYSICAL Lucky Dog has a beautiful black coat with a white neck and chest, and white toes on one foot.
