Story
https://foha.org/pet/lilah2024/ **Hi there, I'm Lilah!** I may be a younger pup of eight months, but I've got a whole lot of love to give! They say I'm the sweetest little girl around, and I can't argue with that. From the moment I arrived at FOHA, I've been wiggle-waggling non-stop, thrilled at all the attention and love coming my way. You see, I had a bit of a rough start. I was found as a stray, wandering alone and wondering where on earth my family went. But now, oh boy, am I happy to be here! At FOHA, I've found safety, plenty of pets, and even belly rubs (my favorite!). What I'm really hoping for, though, is to find a forever family of my very own. A family that will keep me safe and will be my best friends forever. I can't wait to share my puppy kisses, play fetch in the yard, and cuddle up for naps. I may be new here, but as my FOHA family gets to know me better, they'll update my bio with all the adorable things I do and how I get along with other dogs, cats and kids. So, if you're looking for a bundle of joy (that's me!) to bring lots of love and laughter into your home, then I'm your girl! Let's make memories together, shall we? Yours in wags and wiggles, Lilah

Story
Meet Erin. Erin was rescued with her mom and siblings from a heartbreaking scenario in Chester, SC. Their owner, grappling with the loss of her husband to deportation and facing severe flooding on her property due to excessive rain, found herself unable to care for her pets. Sadly, the dogs were being kept outside in a pen that became submerged in water and debris, The owner called Animal Control for help and 9 dogs were removed from the property.  With local shelters already overwhelmed, multiple rescues stepped up to help and Worthy Dog took Erin and her sister, Kira, into our care. Both pups have settled into their foster homes where they are experiencing the comforts of home for the first time. From cozy beds and nourishing meals to daily walks and human companionship, these girls are fully embracing home life. The pups are only about 7-8 months old and are adapting quickly. They are quickly learning new skills like navigating stairs, mastering crate and house training, and reveling in the delights of toys — simple pleasures they had never experienced before. Erin is being fostered in a home with her foster mom, Cari, and three small pups. She has done amazing with training and we’ve learned how smart and motivated she is. Like all puppies, she has spikes of energy and playfulness, but she does very well with structure and direction. We checked in with her foster mom, Carrie, for an update: FOSTER MOM UPDATE - 3/15/24 “After only two weeks, she fully understands the ‘sit’ and ‘wait’ commands, and we are working on the ‘down’ command. She goes quietly into her crate every time, and has started to voluntarily go in to take naps, and will lay in there quietly while I’m working/on calls. She has really learned that crate = relaxation and downtime, not punishment and me leaving. She’s improving with her potty training too. She understands that she should potty outside and has a favorite spot, but will sneak off and go inside if you’re not paying attention. Considering her age and having zero prior training, she’s way ahead of what I would expect. When she first arrived, I noticed she was protective of her food and space around the other dogs when I fed her in the crate. We made some adjustments and I stopped feeding meals and high-value treats in the crate and she stopped protecting the area. I started making her sit for her food bowl and not releasing her until it touched the floor. I also practiced touching her and interrupting her meals to make her sit again to have her food back. I also would like to stress that the aggression was never once directed at me. This has worked wonders and she can now eat with my dogs near her dish and she doesn't react at all. I think it was just a reaction from being housed with so many other dogs and having to battle it out for meals. She’s young and quickly worked through it. Erin has started to find her voice and will bark at my pups if they’re not playing with her. She loves to go and do. I took her on a little hike at Lake Norman and not only does she love a hike, but she was such a brave girl and got into the water! We also went hiking with a couple of friends and their big dogs. She was nervous at first about their size but warmed up really fast and was leading the pack by the end.  She loves to hide her favorite toys in random places - in blankets, behind pillows, behind the blinds, and, my least favorite, in the water bowl. ‍&#226&#153&#128&#239&#184&#143 Overall I think Erin leans more toward the submissive side and is very much a people-pleaser. She takes correction extremely well from both me and my dogs. For her age, she is a great balance of fun, playful, and full of zoomies but then will settle down and take a nap on her own. She can be a bit silly as well. She's also pretty brave. We joke that she's really into parkour because she will jump from one end of the couch to the other, to the ottoman, off the side of the couch, run into the other room, back, and repeat lol. She's not lacking it's personality and her family will have so many laughs and fun times with her. Erin’s favorite things include quality time with her people and adventure. She loves to snuggle with her human on the couch after a big outing or some playtime. I think as long as she has these 2 things, she will be a very happy girl. She is also an absolute HOARDER not just with toys, but anything left on the floor. No sock, shoe, or slipper is safe, but surprisingly she hasn’t been destructive with them. She just likes to have them This girl needs an owner with an active lifestyle. I wouldn’t place her with young kids because she is excitable and does the playful pupping nipping/mouthing and has sharp teeth. She's been great with dogs of all sizes and would love a playmate to entertain her, but I think she could also be ok as an only dog for an active family. She has been able to learn independence way better than expected given her background. I think Erin could be a great candidate for somebody's first dog because of her personality and trainability. She really is one of the best puppies I've fostered. Coming from her situation, I was expecting a dog who would struggle to be alone and would be a little trickier to do basic training with, but she surpassed every single one of my expectations. She brings me so much happiness and so, so many laughs. I can't wait to see her as the center of somebody's world and she absolutely deserves to be that. She is going to bring soooo much joy to her future family!” ****** Need a little puppy fun in your life? Erin is your girl. She's done great with training, is a wonderful pup companion and pack member, and will be a fun, loving addition to your home.  Apply today!

Story
Meet Jackie! This sweet little senior Dachshund came into the rescue after her dad died and her mom went into assisted living. She’s been in the same home living as part of a family her entire life and has never known instability. Her extended family reached out to Worthy Dog for help finding Jackie the forever home she deserves to live out her golden years. We know this sudden life change must be challenging for her, but she has a wonderful, nurturing foster family that has taken her in as their own until her forever family is found. Jackie is living with her foster mom and dad, Debbie and David, and their two dogs who accepted her immediately. She acclimated quickly to her new pack and will follow their lead. This senior girl is, for the most part, laidback but still has some zoomies in her too :grinning:. We learned she was new to leash walking, but her foster parents now walk her every day for exercise and potty breaks. Her mobility is great and Debbie shared that she can fly across the grass when she wants to. ******* We checked in with Debbie for an update: “Jackie is confident and snuggly. She greets new people calmly and quietly and has been very comfortable with my dogs and our young, large Doodle granddog who is staying with us. She is not intimidated one bit by his size or energy level, and she comes up to his ankles! She has not met my grandkids yet, but I do not doubt that Jackie would be very comfortable around children. She is not yappy or snappy. She is a happy camper lying with her blanket beside me in my chair. She loves food time and treats and sleeps quietly through the night with her blankie and a bed beside our bed. She burrows under her blanket and is quiet all night. Potty training is still a work in progress. She had a fenced yard in her prior home and is learning to go potty on leash. She’s already improved in a short time. As far as crate trained, we have not had to use it much. She went into her crate on her own one time and does not want the door closed and locked.  When we leave the home, I have her gated in an area with my other dogs and they all snooze. I love fostering senior babies. My heart hurts for them and loves them more.” ****** We are looking for Dachshund lovers who are looking for a petite little low-rider to love. Jackie has proven to be very adaptable and still has so much love to give. This spry little senior is ready to be your couch potato buddy or join you on walks and outings. She meets everyone well and is very go-with-the-flow, but she has opinions! Apply today!

Story
Hi, it’s nice to meet you, I’m Diablo, a 3 year old, 25 lb., dachshund/chi mix. I don’t remember much about my former life, but I’m glad to be with A Home of Their Own Animal Rescue to find my forever home. I’m a little shy around new people given all the changes I’ve been through. I’ve been in a couple of foster homes before, and I discovered that I feel more comfortable around adults and older children. Younger children scare me with their quick, sometimes unpredictable movements. I am looking for a forever home that is patient and loving. I believe I’m housetrained, but I may need a refresher. Also, I’d need some help feeling comfortable on a leash or find a home with an enclosed yard where I can exercise and do my business. I like crates because they feel so cozy and safe. That said, I may need some coaxing in the beginning to get out of my crate and into the world. I’m a sensitive guy with a big heart once I trust someone. Are you that forever trustworthy person I’m looking for?! ##2039331##
