Story
Artie is a very loving, calm dog. She showed up at our farm one day, we tried to find her home but we unsuccessful. After taking her in I brought her to the vet to be spayed and her vaccinations. After she recovered I worked with her on manners, house training, and walking on a leash. Once she got used to the training I took her out to Lowe’s to get her used to being in public as she is fairly timid. She gets along well with my dogs but needs her own home. She deserves a loving home.

Ulfric is a 7 month old Catahoula mix. We adopted him from a rescue at 3 months. He is a very sweet and loving dog. He loves to play with other dogs. He is house broken but doesn’t like to be crated. We are rehoming him due to allergies and want to see him go to a loving home.

Story
Phineas might be the sweetest little guy you’ll ever meet. He is spunky and playful like a puppy but is able to be calm and collected when it’s not playtime. He will be quick to curl up and snuggle any chance he gets. He had a rough start to life but that doesn’t hold him back one bit- he’s been busy building muscle and putting on some healthy weight, and he’s excited to make friends with everyone he meets, doggo friends included. Phin has two canine foster siblings: he loooves to play with one of his foster siblings (larger male) and he is respectful and submissive toward the other (female) who prefers to be left alone. He also has feline foster siblings and is doing great with learning to respect kitties. He will occasionally consider chasing a cat that runs from him, but is learning that chasing cats is not acceptable and getting better about ignoring them. There aren’t any children in Phin’s foster home, but he is expected to do well with kids. Favorite activities include receiving attention of any kind, cuddling against or near his human(s), and treat time! He is very motivated to please his people, and highly treat motivated. He has mastered “sit” and is eager to learn more tricks. When he’s excited he can hardly restrain his wiggles and may jump a little, but he’s working on learning not to jump, and his smaller size makes the jumps more manageable. He is still learning about walks, which he probably never experienced before being rescued by Saved By Fate. He’s amazed and easily distracted by his surroundings and meanders all over the place. He pulls a little at times, but again, his size makes that manageable and he is learning quickly. He is a good listener; he takes corrections and follows prompts very well. Phin is crate and potty trained but these skills are still new to him and should continue to be reinforced. He may have an occasional accident in the house if not offered a potty break in time. He might cry in his crate at first, but quiets down quickly and is accustomed to being crated overnight and during the workday. (He has never had an accident in the crate). Phineas is a smart, easy going little dude who will make a loving and loyal companion, and would thrive in a variety of home environments. He loves to run around, play and explore, but is also happy to take it easy and snooze the day away. Phineas is estimated to be between 1-2 years old and has completed his vet care. If you're interested in adopting, please apply at savedbyfate.org/adopt. Phineas' adoption fee is $200. A meet with any approved applicants' current pets is required before starting the 2-week adoption trial period.

Story
Graham is looking for a forever home! He’s a confident dog who can be a little hard-headed at times, so he would thrive in a home with lots of structure. Graham is potty-trained and settles in his crate quickly. He is currently fostered with 2 older dogs and some kids. Graham does great with all of them! When introduced to cats in the past, he was pretty intimidated. We're pretty confident that he could live with dog-savvy cats. He’ll be a large dog when full grown (already about 30+ lb at 16 weeks old). We have not done DNA testing on this litter, but we suspect that they are American Bully mix puppies. DOB estimated to be end of October 2023. Graham has completed his vet care and can go home whenever! If you're interested in adopting, please apply savedbyfate.org/adopt and we'll be in touch ASAP. His adoption fee is $250. A meet with any approved adopter's current pets is required before starting the two-week adoption trial. He’ll be a large dog when full grown (already about 25+ lb at 14 weeks old). We have not done DNA testing on this litter, but we suspect that they are American Bully mix puppies. If you're interested in adopting, please apply savedbyfate.org/adopt and we'll be in touch ASAP. His adoption fee is $250. A meet with any approved adopter's current pets is required before starting the two-week adoption trial.

Story
This litter of 4 puppies was abandoned in Floyd Co, KY in September 2023. Good Samaritans, neighbors consisting of two families, have been caring for them ever since. Despite growing up outside, these puppies do just fine living indoors! They're very sweet and friendly. The pups do well with the resident dogs and all humans but haven't been around children or cats much. These puppies are about 6 months old now. There are 3 males (tan, brown/white), Allen, Preston, and Garrett, and one female (smallest brown/white), Dana. They’re all spayed/neutered and vaccinated. Saved By Fate is helping find these puppies rescue commitment OR forever homes once they're fully vetted. Whether you're a rescue or hopeful adopter, please reach out at adoptions@savedbyfate.org and we'll assist you! There will be a small rehoming fee to recoup the cost of vet care (TBD).
