Story
Rocco is a sweet 3 month old puppy looking for his best friend for life! He is kennel trained and working on his potty training. He LOVES food, I'm pretty sure eating is his life's passion! Rocco is good with other dogs, cats and puppies. He has a lot of puppy like energy when he’s awake, and is the BIGGEST cuddle bug at night or when it's nap time! Rocco loves the outdoors and is happy to spend all his time playing outside or sunbathing.

Story
If you are someone who likes structure and order in your life, we have the dog for you! Little Snoopy is a 15-pound mixed-breed dog who is part Yorkshire Terrier and almost three years old. Once he gets comfortable, Snoopy has a darling personality: he "talks, grumbles, and spins in circles when he's excited. At the end of the day when it's time to relax on the couch, Snoopy lets out the biggest sigh like he's just had the most grueling work day of his life, and now it's time to relax! Snoopy's favorite things in life are "scritches, giving kisses, burrowing under the covers, going on walks, and eating food. He is highly motivated when it comes to treats, and he's immensely proud of himself for learning a new trick or conquering a fear. His foster is currently working with him to master "spin and "up. He is dog-friendly, but a slow introduction is required since Snoopy needs to be the first to sniff and investigate play. He doesn't want an unfamiliar dog in his face right away. He makes progress with each new dog he meets, and sometimes it only takes 30 minutes for him to become best friends with his new playmate. Snoopy's foster has made a list called "Things Snoopy Finds Offensive, and she has been working one by one to desensitize him to each one. She has clicker-trained him to focus on her instead of the distraction, and he is making great progress. He thrives on routine and structure, so potential adopters will not see his darling personality until Snoopy has time to settle in and trust his new people. His foster mom will be there to support his new adopter. Snoopy's newest things are playing with any ball that bounces and learning to play fetch. He constantly carries around a ball bigger than his head (even though his foster bought small balls just for him). He loves to chew on bones. Again, he picks the bones that are bigger than he is even though she bought little versions of the same bone just for him. He tolerates baths and nail trims, but he's very wiggly for both because he doesn't really enjoy them. His foster brushes him often, which he loves. He finds comfort in the air purifier, so there's a blanket in front of it just for him. The noise soothes him. If you love the hum of a good fan or some quality white noise, Snoopy would be a great buddy for you. He is crate-trained but would also be fine free-roaming when no one is home. He loves to nap in his doghouse bed but prefers to cuddle up with his foster mom to sleep at night. Snoopy will need a low-activity home (no children, please!) with a patient adopter who will give him the time he needs to settle into his new environment and continue training him. Snoopy's foster works regular hours, so he does not require someone who works from home or is retired. He would love another pup to play with but would also be just fine with his very own person. In return, Snoopy will reward you with fierce loyalty and an endless supply of love.

Story
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 Ernest - You are the bridge between what was and what will be, my pathway to a new life! Ernest Goes To Jail, yes, to my embarrassment and dismay, I was found as a stray and spent some time in the doggie slammer. It seemed like forever!! But thanks to this rescue I got out on good behavior and am ready for that freedom ride! Yes, Ernest Rides Again!!! I'm just hoping your home is my last ride!! I have been working on the whole house and crate training thing and have got it down. I may have spent most of my life outside but I've caught on quickly. I coming to see that this whole living inside with a soft bed and a warm lap to lay on is pretty darn nice!! I would do best in a quiet adult only home. I'm needing my space but will come seeking companionship when I want it. Kinda like a cat in that sense. I do well with other dogs but would prefer a more mellow sibling that isn't too bouncy and constantly in my space. At 9 years and only 11lbs I would make a great family addition for someone that is looking for a great lil guy to chill with them. I'm already out of that destructive stage but still enjoy neighborhood strolls and catching some rays in the backyard. If you're looking for that needy pup that is always under foot seeking you attention, I'm not your boy. But if you want an independent lil guy that is just happy being in the same room, I might just be that lil man!! I would love to be your lil side kick....so what do ya say? Can I come home with you?!!

Please fill out an adoption application found at haydudeequine.org Shania - You are the bridge between what was and what will be, my pathway to a new life! Just take one look at me, this cutest lil face and this sweet happy personality and you can't help but have your heart go pitter patter!! And as I'm wiggling my way into your heart that pitter patter turns to a steady beat from my total and absolute love for you! My name is Shania and I'm around a year old. Me and my brother, Tate are looking for our very own homes to be love and cherished. We are very attached to each other and would love to have a home together but we are young and could do just fine in separate homes. We understand it's a big undertaking taking on 2 pups at the same time. I come in at just 12lbs but that's ALL my12lbs of pure love, 12lbs of kisses and snuggles, 12lbs of tail wags and 12lbs of a heartbeat at your feet (or on your lap!!)! I do great with the other foster pups here and am doing really well with my house training. I may be small but I still love all the things the bigger pups get to do. I loves exploring, taking walks around the neighborhood or on milder nature trails, snuggling under soft blankets, being next to you giving you my helping paw and the list goes on and on! My short coat makes me easy peasy in the grooming department. A bath and a towel dry and I'm ready for our next adventure! Let's make some beautiful memories...together, as we start our our journey of lots of love, companionship and adventures!! I just need for YOU to fill out my adoption application to get this fun filled life started!!! Please also check out my brother, Tate who is also looking for his fur-ever family!
