Story
Meet Sam. A very loving and playful German Shepherd. Loves kisses, belly rubs and eats up all of the attention you give him. Very High energy and loves to bite at the water hose. Is a Houdini and will need a secure fence with lots of space to run. He is currently on an Invisible Fence and does very well with it. He is Dominant when he plays with other dogs. I am not sure how he is with children but absolutely no cats or livestock. Highly trainable. Missed his calling as a police dog as he is an excellent watch/guard dog but then transforms and becomes an 80lb lap dog. He needs someone who will train him religiously. Has all this potential and I hate to see it go to waste. No allergies that I know of and is UTD on all shots/vaccinations. He is Neutered and comes with paperwork. I am happy to answer any questions! The reason I am rehoming him is because he loves to chase our horses. My mother is 70 and I travel for work at least until March of next year.

Story
We rescued Margo when she was a puppy from a household that should not have any pets. Margo just turned 1 year old on Valentine's Day. We live in an apartment so she is pad trained and also goes outside on a leash. If you are interested in Margo she absolutely MUST be the only dog in your household due to her being food aggressive. She is fine sharing dog food, but if human food should fall onto the floor she will attack another dog within her sight, then go for the food. She just fought my Doxie mix because of a cheese peanut butter cracker was on the floor. Her fights over food are VERY SEVERE. She will only go after other dogs. Not aggressive toward people at all. She's good with kids. Not sure about cats or other animals. Other than that, she is the sweetest pup ever!! She loves to play fetch, she always brings the ball back to you. She loves kisses and hugs. She sees herself as a lapdog.. lol. Margo is VERY intelligent and she would love a big yard to run in!

Story
*****IF INTERESTED EMAIL derbycitydogrescue@gmail.com*****Hello, good people! My name is Niko and I am a hunka, hunka, burning love looking for that special someone/family to call my own!I'm roundabout 11 yrs old and as you can see from my pics, I'm a pretty handsome fella and a bit of a ladies man. I really love to snuggle up with you and give out some kisses.I also love a good run around the yard and to play with my ropes, old footballs, and really any kind of fun with tough toys!Now I do like to be the king of my castle, so that I can be the center of your attention and not have to share my toys or love with other animals. I might be able to tolerate a laid back kind of girl, but I'd need some introductions first to be sure.I really like to please my people so learning new tricks and commands is always a fun time for me. I've learned several over the years including sit, stay, paw, and down but I might need a bit of a refresher. I'm a pretty strong guy so a nice harness is a good idea for walks (WHICH I LOVE!).Niko is up to date on shots, neutered, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $200.

*****IF INTERESTED EMAIL derbycitydogrescue@gmail.com*****What's up party people? Cheeto's the name and fun is my game! The folks round here call me Big Happy because I'm never without my smile and just love EVERYTHING! (well except those other furries, but more on that later).I'm about 10 yrs old and have been through a lot in my life. I've lived on the streets and had some lean times before a nice lady found me and helped me get where I am today.I'm a super fun chick with a love for car rides, walks in the park, and TREATS. Some say I like treats a bit too much, but is there such a thing?I really like to meet new people and make people friends really easily. I even like the small peoples. I'm not too much on the furry friends though - I like to the one getting all the love.So, do you know anyone that is looking for a little slice of heaven like me?Cheeto is house trained, is up to date on shots, spayed, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $200.To apply for Cheeto, complete our application at www.derbycitydogrescue.org/adoption-application.html

Persimmon

American Pit Bull Terrier

Female, 11 yrs 1 mo
Louisville, KY
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)

Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Persimmon is looking for an adoptive home who is willing to work with her on becoming a respectable member of dog society!Persimmon came to us in very bad shape, with almost no fear and sores all over her body from demodex likely caused by extreme neglect. She was very ill for a long period of time but has almost completely recovered, with some occasional skin flareups. Persimmon is, as far as we can tell, about 3 years old, and seems to be some kind of pit/boxer mix. She’s crate trained, has a solid sit, and some basic leash skills (that at this point aren’t solid when there are any distractions).She is dog and cat reactive, but will move past quiet animals with consistent reinforcement/distraction. She needs to be crated away from other animals. We do believe that with slow introductions, positive training, and patience, she may be able to interact appropriately with other dogs.She is an incredibly happy dog who will play for long periods of time, whether she’s on her own or not. She’s excited about learning new things (and good at it), but has a harder time adjusting in environments where there’s too much going on.Persimmon is, at her core, a super sweet, funny, and playful dog with a terrific personality and will light up any room she is in.If you would be interested in adopting Persimmon, complete our application at www.derbycitydogrescue.org/adoption-application.html
