Story
Vanilla, her mother Virginia and her two siblings, Vince, and Victor are in a shelter that is overfull and will need to make space shortly. ALL OF THEM ARE ON THE URGENT LIST! The poor momma was a stray that no one would help. She finally wandered up to an empty house to have her babies and thankfully someone called trying to find help for her. This little girl is the shy one in her litter, but she is a real charmer. She adores people and will even miss out on playtime for lover dog time. She will whine and bark for your attention and when you sit down with her, she will crawl in your lap - tail going a mile a minute and little butt jiggling. Puppy kisses alert! She is smart and is a quick learner. Coming along great on leash walking and potty training. She plays well with other dogs but runs away if they get too rough. She also seems good with kids but will need to be taught manners like all other puppies. Vanilla is currently in TN but the transport to your area is included in your fee. We use Rescue Riders Pet Transport, the most animal-friendly transport on the road.
We'll also keep you updated on Victor SOS!!!'s adoption status with email updates.

Story
Victor, his mother Virginia and his two siblings, Vince, and Vanilla are in a shelter that is overfull and will need to make space shortly. ALL OF THEM ARE ON THE URGENT LIST! The poor momma was a stray that no one would help. She finally wandered up to an empty house to have her babies and thankfully someone called trying to find help for her. Victor is the scaredy cat of the litter. He feels much happier and more comfortable when people are around him and looks for you when he is out in the play yard. He was interested in the squeaky toys but not as much as he was in getting cuddles. When he is with you, he is super sweet and very energetic, running all over and wiggle butts going constantly. He is good with other dogs but doesn't like to be in the middle of a big pack. One dog, or an older buddy would probably suit him best. He is a bit of a jumper so he would need a bit taller fence, or you will find him searching for you! Victor is currently in TN but the transport to your area is included in your fee. We use Rescue Riders Pet Transport, the most animal-friendly transport on the road.

Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) Bulldog

Good with kids, Not good with cats, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Virginia was dumped out pregnant and despite going up to several homes and people, no one tried to help. She eventually wandered up to an empty house to have her three babies and thankfully someone took pity and reach out to get her help. Now she and her puppies, Vince, Victor & Vanilla are in a shelter that is overfull and will need to make space shortly. ALL OF THEM ARE ON THE URGENT LIST! This girl is going to make someone a fabulous companion! She walks very well on a leash, is potty-trained, and is active but not hyper. Virginia LOVES to go for car rides, especially if there's a burger and a pup-cup involved. And when she went on an outing, she was the perfect lady when walking around the store- she was polite, greeted everyone, picked out a chew toy and treats. She also LOVES to play with her tennis ball or squeaky ball!! No stuffy toys for this girl, unless you want a snowstorm of fluff inside your house 🙂 She loves to be with her person but is content to play by herself too. Virginia does not love other dogs and we recommend she be an only-pet home. She has done well with kids and loves everyone she meets. She will need some work with leash walking as she is a strong puller. She does not jump, nor does she guard her food or toys. She takes a treat ever-so-gently and is just an overall "Good Girl!!" Virginia is looking for a pet-free family to include her on their adventures and show her all the love this mama dog deserves!! This girl is an absolute LOVE and deserves the best home ever! If it is yours, click on the big, black button to inquire about Virginia. Victor is currently in TN but the transport to your area is included in your fee. We use Rescue Riders Pet Transport, the most animal-friendly transport on the road.

Vince, his mother Virginia and his two siblings, Victor, and Vanilla are in a shelter that is overfull and will need to make space shortly. ALL OF THEM ARE ON THE URGENT LIST! The poor momma was a stray that no one would help. She finally wandered up to an empty house to have her babies and thankfully someone called trying to find help for her. Vince is the leader of his pack. He is wide open in the play yard, and he loves a tennis ball. He will not jump on you for attention, but he makes his wishes clear by wiggling his butt all around you and gazing up with puppy eyes until you notice him. Vince seems good with kids and other dogs but just make sure you introduce them properly as he thinks he should be in charge! He is super sweet and playful and very smart. He is coming along well with leash walking and potty training and relishes love, and attention. Vince is currently in TN but the transport to your area is included in your fee. We use Rescue Riders Pet Transport, the most animal-friendly transport on the road.

Story
Thyme was brought in by a good Samaritan wanting to see if we could help with him. Of course we said yes. He is a sweetie. As you can see from his pictures he is beautiful. He's a very happy puppy but still needs a forever family to love and take care of him. He has been fully vetted, up to date on all shots and will be neutered before going to his forever home. He loves to play and is good with kids and other dogs. Not sure about cats at this time. Won't you think about adopting this sweet young pup? He will make a good family member with all of his love and happiness that he has to share. Thyme is being fostered in TN but not to worry because we use the most animal-friendly transport on the road. Rescue Riders Pet Transport. The transport fee is included in the adoption fee as well.

Story
This sweet gal was found wandering around a city dump. A stranger rescued her but could not keep her so, she ended up at our shelter. She is a bit overweight, but we are working on that. She has a very kind disposition and gets along with other dogs of all ages. Puppies are a bit much for her, though, so she would do better around older dogs. Older kids would probably also be best for her. She is housetrained and will need a little work on a leash. She does like to be around people and can be a bit talkative when left alone (she does settle down). She gets around great, and her weight doesn’t stop her from jumping on a comfortable couch! She’s just an older lady needing a forever home with a laid-back family… some exercise is needed, but not too much. We also use the most animal-friendly transport on the road. Rescue Riders Pet Transport. We transport every weekend, alternating between the Northeast and the Midwest.
