Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.MUST BE THE ONLY DOG IN HOUSEHOLD; REACTIVE TO DOGS Bella has returned to rescue. Her adoptive family feels they are not the right home for her to be truly happy. You see, Bella wants to be an only dog and get all the attention in the household. She can be around other dogs for playtime or outings, but inside the house she will challenge other dogs for your undivided attention. The adoptive family has tried obedience training and muzzle training and keeping the dogs separated as much as possible. But it isn't the best life. Can you give Bella the life she deserves?Bella is fully potty trained and has learned how to use a bell to go out. She kennels like a dream and doesn’t mind being in it whether we’re home or not. She loves playing with toys and doesn’t mind having a few bones around to keep her entertained. Bella will do better in a house with another dog or kids to play with her.  Bella is a true love bug through and through, and is quickly learning what life looks like as an inside dog and is enjoying every minute of it!             Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.September 21, 2023, 10:17 am

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Breeder release - puppy mill mamaTen boxers arrived on 5/11/2023; a breeder in IA is closing her business. These dogs are typical puppy mill dogs. They have not had any socialization with people and are very shut down around humans. None of them are used to wearing a collar and do not know how to walk on a leash. Most just crouch down out of fear. All the dogs love to be around other dogs. These girls have improved already in just a few days but will need lots and lots of work, from potty training to crate training to walking on a leash, etc. The dogs are unfamiliar with the inside of a house and do not know how to climb stairs/steps.From the foster mom:  She is very shy, but when she warms up to you, she will follow you around. Doing well on a leash. If she steps on it or it gets caught, she freezes until you help her. She isn't into treats but loves popcorn and takes it really gentle from my hand. She is doing pretty good about going potty outside but does have 1 accident sometime in the middle of the night. Does not know about dog beds or blanket piles for the most part. Did.find her this morning on a blanket in the bedroom but will sleep next to it but won't really go on it. She enjoys car/truck rides. Have to lift her into our vehicles, but she will jump out by herself. She is doing well with steps...might take her a little convincing, but she will go up and down. She loves it outside. Did awesome in the camper Friday/Saturday. Merlot loves to bask on the deck in the sun.   Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.September 21, 2023, 10:17 am

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Breeder release - puppy mill mamaUpdate on puppy mill momma Minnie. Minnie loves other dogs and enjoys the company of the resident foster boxer  Gramps.  Minnie enjoys the fenced in yard and runs in circles and jumps for joy.  Minnie so wants to play with the  foster mate but he is not interested in play time so she walks away and says ok be that way.  Minnie ignores the 2 cats and  shown to be a good house mate with cats.  Minnie will destroy soft toys but has shown little interest in hard toys or balls.  She has not touched shoes left on the floor or items left on the coffee table.  Minnie is very comfortable in the crate and tolerates the crate.  Minnie sleeps in a dog bed by foster moms bed and sleeps there thru the night.  She is not totally housetrained as there has been a few accidents, some of this is attributed to foster mom not paying attention to the need to go outside cues.     Minnie does not enjoy human contact, she is still very shy, reserved, and not trusting of humans. She feels the human world is going to hurt her and crouch's down out of fear.   Minnie has shown no signs of aggressive behavior.  She has no fear of household noises and is curious enough to check out when foster mom goes into other rooms of the house.  She is content to chill while foster mom is watching TV and playing games on the I Pad.  Minnie is doing really good on a lease and seems to enjoy walks.  Minnie stays by foster moms left leg with very few corrections on the weather permitting 3 mile walks.  Minnie barks at the turkeys and squirrels looking for food by the bird feeders.     Minnie is a sweet girl and will take more time to learn to live with humans and accept the human world.  Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.September 21, 2023, 10:17 am

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Bonded to Jaylee; will need another dog in her new homeDiva is from a breeder and has limited socialization skills with people and the outside world. She is slowly learning what it means to be a dog. Diva needs a lot of encouragement and patience in her journey. Diva doesn not know how to play with toys yet, but she loves to collect them and bring them to her doggie bed. It wasn't too long ago that Diva did not want to leave her crate, but she has found doggie beds to be pretty darn comfortable and is spending more time outside of the crate.Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.September 21, 2023, 10:17 am
