Oreo (f) - she is an American bulldog/ Cane corso mix. She is two years old, spayed, up-to-date on shots, and chiped. She is house trained. She loves to lay on the couch and chew her toys while cuddling. She is very energetic and needs a dominant male to control her; she definitely needs training. She is in a crate at night and during the day when the current caregiver is not home. She really needs a lot of attention and somewhere that she can run. ##320755##

He is quickly learning to obey with his foster caregiver, and he should continue to train and learn once adopted. ##1121056##

Good with kids, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Raven (f) is a sweet 11-years young black lab pup with so much love left to give. She grew up in a house with 11 children and, through no fault of her own, is now in need of a new home and family. Raven is mostly an indoor girl but enjoys a romp around a fenced yard or a walk a few times a day to get her exercise in. She has not been exposed much to other dogs or cats but she is very calm natured and seems to get along with everyone. Raven is not reactive to loud noises but does get anxious if she is alone all day. There is no adoption fee for Raven but a donation to Sunshine's Friends would be greatly appreciated. Our goal is always to keep our beautiful seniors in a loving home where they can enjoy their golden years as someone's companion or part of a family. ##1472968##

Snow (m) - a 3 year old, handsome white German Shepard boy. He is very friendly with people and kids and but reactive with other dogs, likely because has not been neuter. Snow will be neutered before or within 2 weeks after adopted through Sunshine's Friends.  He has been raised and currently lives with young children. He went to Academy Dog Training for two months and obeys commands. Snow would benefit from a large fenced yard and someone to play catch or Frisbee with. He is being surrendered to us because his family can no longer care for him. ##1645888##

Ruthie

American Staffordshire Terrier Labrador Retriever

Female, Young
Columbia, MD
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Details
Good with kids, Good with dogs, Needs experienced adopter, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Meet Ruthie, 55 pounds of snugglebug! We adopted Ruthie in February 2022 when she was 9 months old. Since then, she has been living with our family of two adults, a senior dog, and a new baby. She is housetrained, crate-trained, up-to-date on vaccines and flea/tick/heartworm preventatives, and in good health. The birth of our daughter has meant we are unable to devote as much time to Ruthie, and the transition has been hard on her. We think she would be happier in a home where she can get lots of undivided love and attention. Ruth is very energetic and affectionate. She is very active during the day, then loves to snuggle and cuddle at night before bed. She benefits from daily training sessions to reinforce basic commands and satisfy her need for mental stimulation and connection with her owner. She would do well in a home with an adult who works from home, with older children, and/or an active family.
