Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Fill out an Adoption Application Otto is a very regal and handsome 2 year old Mantle Great Dane who is ready to learn about what a wonderful the place the world can be.  When Otto first arrived at his foster's, he was untrained and uncomfortable being indoors - likely because it was new to him.  Since then, he has definitely made progress.  Otto is a big scaredy cat when it comes to a lot of things, but is getting braver with time as he gets used to his new environment.  Baby steps. :)  Although Otto is not necessarily treat motivated, he LOVES dinner time!  And he's recently been learning how to play with other dogs and toys.  It's like a whole new world... ;) Likes:  Otto loves long walks.  The longer, the better.  And dinner.  He LOVES dinner! Dislikes: Sudden noises/movements and loud sounds. Personality: Shy/timid.  This may change over time as he becomes more comfortable with his surroundings. Temperament: Mellow, calm, and nervous. Energy Level: Moderate Favorite Activities: Long walks and face rubs/rubdowns.   Good with cats, dogs, and kids (over age 6)? Cats - unsure. Dogs - yes. Kids - over age 13. Not good with: Small spaces and lots of people at one time.  Otto can get overwhelmed in these two situations.  Again, with time and training this may improve. House trained: Yes! Crate trained? No Requires a fenced yard (physical and/or invisible fence)?  Yes.   Walks well on a leash? Yes, Otto is pretty good on a leash and is getting better every day.  He does enjoy his walks! Challenges: Warming up to strangers.  Currently he is still learning to acclimate to the world around him, which is MUCH different than where he came from.  Once he learns to trust humans and open up we may see a whole different side of this handsome guy. Medical Issues: None What would be the best kind of home for Otto?  Otto would do best with a patient family who is willing to work with him and build a trusting relationship with him.  He needs people to show him how great the world is and all that it has to offer - toys, treats, car rides, walks, parks, games, cuddles, ice cubes, pets, more cuddles, and all the joys of life that he has missed out on. We guarantee you he is worth the time!     Application Fees, Adoption Donations and Rescue Policy: Please know that 100% of our fees and donations pay for the costs of rescuing dogs.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Fill out an Adoption Application OLIVER (“OLLIE”) IS LOCATED IN ALEXANDRIA, VA. Meet Ollie, a 2 year-old Cane Corso/ Mastiff who was rescued from an Indiana shelter by MTM. Likes: Ollie loves his hoomans, bone chew toys, and dog pillow. He loves to go for walks to visit with the dog walking parade, and snuggling with his human on the sofa. He tries to be your lap dog! Dislikes: Ollie currently dislikes anyone near his food or chew bones. Personality: (Goofy, laid back, playful, etc) Ollie is WHOLE lot of snuggles! He’s playful (poster pup of ‘in your face’) and just wants to be schnuggled. He warns strangers near his home or his person, bumping himself in between foster mom and doors (or people), but once properly introduced he is very friendly to humans both big and small. Temperament: He’s a big puppy with a Velcro personality.  Ollie is an alpha personality and wants to be the alpha of his four legged pack mates (& humans, if allowed).   Ollie knows “no”, “off”, “stop”, “release” and “crate”, is stubborn but with patience, and listens to his foster mom. Energy level:  Ollie loves to be outside for walks less than a mile (he gets really excited when he sees his harness and leash come out and runs to the car and then the door). Favorite activities: By far, Ollie’s favorite pastime is car rides. And rawhide/bones. Good with small and large dogs, and kids (over 6)?: When properly introduced to new dogs, he does well (best if submissive). Ollie gets along with his alpha schnoodle brother and the energetic, submissive Dane foster sister, Rayna.  Ollie has not been tested with cats, but he doesn’t show interest in chasing small critters in the yard or on walks. Ollie has been exposed to both younger and older kids, barks until introduced, then runs to fence for pats on head.   Not good with: Oliver guards his bones & food, counter surfs, and is learning that toilets are only for humans (uses as backup water bowl if two legged males leave lid up).  He’s working on his bathroom and kitchen manners (but when your head is above countertop level… puppy temptation is hard to curb- lol). Housetrained: Yes! Crate trained: Yes! Requires a fenced yard (physical fence and/or invisible fence)? Ollie enjoys walking around and protecting his foster home’s fenced yard.   Walks well on a leash? Ollie is doing very well on leash (needs gentle lead).  He alerts and sometimes pulls if a male dog and him start a staring contest, but he can be distracted before continuing walk. Challenges: Ollie is a puppy with adult dog sized strength - with his strength building post surgery.  His leash manners are improving every day along with healthy boundaries for his alpha personality in a human world as well. Any Medical Issues? Ollie is recovering from TPLO knee surgery on his left rear leg, gradually strengthening it and is well on the way to a full recovery. He is scheduled to be released from doctor’s care early February!  His rear right knee does show scar tissue from a previous sprain - monitoring and minimizing stairs is recommended. What would be the best kind of home? Ollie will benefit most from a family who embraces his Velcro personality, enforces basic training, provides socialization with others (to keep him socially adept), and has other submissive-type dogs, if any.    Application Fees, Adoption Donations and Rescue Policy: Please know that 100% of our fees and donations pay for the costs of rescuing dogs. These include, but are not limited to: pull fees from shelters, veterinary examinations, vaccinations, medications and care, microchips, neuter/spay surgeries, heartworm treatments, behavior evaluations, and foster care, as needed.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Fill out an Adoption Application Brief description: The story is about a young voyager named Atlas.  Atlas is a well-educated boy, who learned several languages with his previous owners who were Veterans.  Unfortunately, his devoted family fell on some hard times and had to make the tough decision to allow their sidekick the opportunity to spread his paws and find a new family that could give him the life he deserves.  While being in foster care, Atlas has gone on many walks and visits to the local Pet store.  He is always on his best behavior and has meet new dogs & puppies without issue.  He is introduced to many smiling faces who just want to sit on the floor and give him lovins… which absolutely delights him.  A true social butterfly who just wants to make you smile.    Likes:   Sunrises… he's an early riser who wants to get out of his crate by 7AM.  He loves to play with his Kong Jolly ball, go on walks, give, and receive hugs & kisses, and check out the beautiful countryside on his car rides.  He also loves his naps! Dislikes:  Being left alone he'll sing a sad song until you return Personality:   he's a class clown, family dog, old soul, athlete, independent thinker, and a wannabe bodyguard.  He has the potential to be a Velcro dog so if you need a shadow, he is your boy. Temperament:  eager to please, respectful, mellow, goes with the flow, curious, counter sniffer (will not take food unless given) not a big snacker (cares too much about his stellar figure) and at times thinks he’s a lap dog and snores loudly. Good with cats, dogs, and kids (over 6)?: Cat curious, older kids would be fine, sometimes he doesn't know his strength or pay attention. Challenges:  Taking meds with food, guaranteed to find the pill stuck in any treat he is given.  Gets excited and ready to play when he sees cats or small animals but easy to correct on leash.  He does get some zoomies while on leash but do find that if he has the freedom to be off-leach in a fenced-in-area a couple of times a day this behavior goes away.   Housetrained:  yes Crate trained:  yes, just point and say bed. Requires a fenced yard (physical fence and/or invisible fence)?  No, but would be nice to have for playing with him and if you don’t have the time to be out there for bathroom breaks. (He takes forever, I mean forever!) Walks well on a leash: Yes, will stop and sit on lead. Any Medical issues?  Atlas was diagnosed with Lyme disease but received a full month of medications.  He will only need to receive monthly preventatives going forward.  Veterinarian may recommend a Lyme Quant C Test to verify the antibody levels to make sure the treatment was effective after 6 months. He also had some masses removed before coming into rescue, that the owner said was due to a male dog attacking him.  What would be the best kind of home?  Atlas just wants a family to call his own who will give him lots of kisses and snuggles.    Application Fees, Adoption Donations and Rescue Policy: Please know that 100% of our fees and donations pay for the costs of rescuing dogs. These include, but are not limited to: pull fees from shelters, veterinary examinations, vaccinations, medications and care, microchips, neuter/spay surgeries, heartworm treatments, behavior evaluations, and foster care, as needed.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Fill out an Adoption Application BEETHOVEN IS LOCATED IN HARRISBURG, PA. Meet Beethoven! Beethoven is a 14 month old “Newfiepoo” who has a TON of energy and personality. He has only been in his foster home about a week so far, but he also came equipped with some information from his prior owner, so here is what he has to share about himself so far…. Likes:  Beethoven is still young, so naturally one of his favorite things to do is to play endlessly. He loves attention and pets, and wants to be by your side 100% of the time. He enjoys training, and has been learning basic scent work, which he really seems to enjoy. It’s likely that he would also really enjoy agility.  He will let you know once he heals from his neuter and can give it a whirl! Dislikes: While he is crate trained, he definitely does not enjoy being there and he will be sure to tell you how upset he is about the situation with some serious howling until he settles down. Beethoven also can struggle with change, which is understandable because he’s been through a lot lately. Be prepared for him to potentially go on a hunger strike if he’s really overwhelmed. Don’t worry, it doesn’t last very long… Personality: Beethoven is a giant doofus, and is extremely playful and goofy! Unfortunately, he also doesn’t yet have the ability to turn it off when needed, but this is something his foster parents are working on in training. He doesn’t really understand boundaries or good manners yet, so his playfulness can escalate to inappropriate behavior like mouthiness and incessant jumping pretty quickly. He will do best with a family who will be able to accommodate his high energy, but also dedicate themselves to providing him with the ongoing training and structure he needs to be successful. Temperament: Beethoven is a sweet dude who has loved every person he has gotten to meet so far.  He’s a wild man, but he’s also extremely sweet and eager to please. Energy Level: It’s probably obvious by now, but this guy is HIGH ENERGY. His former owner commented that playing in a fenced yard is not going to be enough for Beethoven; he needs additional exercise outlets too, and his foster parents would tend to agree with that statement! Favorite Activities: Beethoven likes to ride in the car, and is an extremely good boy when doing so. He also loves walks and playing with some of his favorite toys (the Bento Ball is the current favorite one, but he is also a big fan of Yak Chews). His favorite is training though, because he gets to exercise his brain AND get attention! The treats, obviously, are a huge bonus too. He’ll do just about anything for a small hot dog slice. Good with cats, dogs, and kids over 6 years old?  Beethoven has reportedly lived with cats, as well as with other dogs of varying size in the past. However, some of that was when he was a puppy, and as an adolescent he did have issues with a more dominant male dog he shared a home with in the past. In light of the mixed reviews, once his decompression period is over, his foster parents will be working with him to get a better read on what type of personality his ideal furry family members would have. Beethoven will definitely need slow introductions to other dogs, as he can be reactive to new dogs, especially at first. Also, since he can be very pushy and overbearing with play with his human friends, it’s likely that will also translate into interactions with other animals and should be considered when matching him with furry friends. Challenges: Beethoven will test your patience at times, he can be a stinker. No paper product in the world is safe from him, and he will steal and shred your tissues and paper towels gleefully with zero remorse. He will try to knock over your baby gates, shove in front of you to get through doorways - his rudeness knows no bounds. He is likely also going to test the patience of any other pets in his future home. But what he lacks in manners and training he makes up for in intelligence and sweetness. Once he can have the consistent training he needs, he is going to be a rock star, because this boy is super smart and eager to please! House & Crate Trained? Beethoven is fully housetrained and will run to the door and tell you when he needs to take a trip out. He is not a fan of being crated, but his future family should definitely continue to enforce crate training and helping him to have positive associations with his crate, especially since he can be a little destructive when he’s frustrated or anxious. Requires a physically fenced in yard? Encouraged, but not required.  Beethoven would love to be able to play with his future family in a fenced yard with lots of space for him to run around with his toys, so a fenced yard would be ideal for him. However, it is not required provided his adoptive family has alternative ways to provide him with the energy outlets he needs, in a safe and controlled setting. Walks well on a leash?  Beethoven is sorry to report that right now, leash manners are not something he possesses. His foster family will be working with him on this first and foremost. He pulls like a rhinoceros, so a stronger person and an Easy Walk harness or similar no pull front fastening harness will be needed until he can learn walking manners. Any medical issues? Beethoven is currently taking medication for sedation to allow him to fully recover from his neuter surgery due to some healing complications and the need to keep his activity level low to promote healing. However, this is improving daily, and is expected to be resolved fully in the very near future. What would be the best kind of home?  Beethoven would do best in a home committed to providing him with the love, patience, structure, and training he needs to be all he can be! Children or younger people who are willing to play with him and help channel some of his energy would definitely be a bonus, but his lack of manners and pushiness should also be considered in this respect, as at present time, he doesn’t discriminate in who he jumps up on or gets mouthy with. Beethoven will also need a family who is able to provide proper grooming for him, and/or take him to a professional groomer, because his hair is wild and appears to be something that will get out of control fairly quickly if it does not get regular attention.    Application Fees, Adoption Donations and Rescue Policy: Please know that 100% of our fees and donations pay for the costs of rescuing dogs.
