Story
We adopted Elvis from a shelter in 2019 (he was 3 or 4). Elvis is a very good boy and a major couch potato but still loves to go on walks and run around in the yard. Elvis spends most of his day lying by his food bowl and is very food-motivated. While he loves being around our other dog, he does need to be separated during feeding. Elvis is a typical hound dog and shares what is on his mind. He will always make sure that you are giving him plenty of love, as he will howl and cry for more attention. Elvis also loves carrying around pairs of socks from those he loves. He is very cuddly and spends every night sleeping next to my teenage son and our other dog. Elvis does fine with other dogs and kids if there is no food involved. Because of his food motivation and territorial personality, it is not recommended he spend a lot of time with little children who tend to have snacks at hand, which is why we are rehoming him. Young grandkids do not understand Elvis and his love for food.

Story
Griffin is a 1.5 year old, neutered male. He is 40 lbs and up to date on all shots. He has a lot of energy. He loves to play fetch and swim! He would swim all day if we let him! We have another dog, a great dane that he has gotten along great with, he does try to be the "alpha" but with our great dane's ho-hum nature, it has not been an issue. We also have two cats, he is always interested in them but has never bitten or aggressively chased them. Our neighbor has chickens that he loves to try and herd! He has never bitten them, even when they come into our yard. He is housebroken and crate trained. He knows the commands of sit, come and working on stay at the moment (it's 50/50). The biggest issue is that I cannot try to show him affection or, as the vet describes it, he submissively pees. This breaks my heart because I have always wanted this breed. He listens to me all the time, he tries to push the boundaries with my wife. We tried to make him an inside dog. He is not an inside dog

Rat Terrier

Brownsburg, IN
Size
(when grown) Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
Details
Good with kids, Not good with dogs, House-trained, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Penelope is sweet, loves to play, and very smart. The best home would be one that does not have any other dogs, or at least no other female dogs. She stays close to home and never runs away (is very loyal). She is a terrier and very protective in that regard. She has never bit anyone, nor is a threat to ever do so. However, being protective in nature, she does not get along well with other female dogs. She is just over 1 year old, birthdate in January 2023. Weight around 10-15 lbs approximately. Only asking $20 to help cover the online posting fee. Travel crate and collars/clothing provided as well, at no charge.
