Story
Max is a 35 pound mini English bulldog. He is hands-down absolutely the best pet anyone could ask for, until recently. Since getting another dog, who he gets along great with as his little brother, He has become somewhat protective and had very high anxiety when others come into the home unexpectedly. This is led to jumping and somewhat playful nipping only in those high stress situations, but recently escalated when excited and bit both of our two girls. Prior to this, and even now he has always been amazing with other dogs, other people, and especially children being around babies for the time he was a young puppy never would’ve thought we would have these issues. While it breaks our heart, he cannot stay here any longer. He is an amazing companion and Would do well in a low stress environment without others, but cannot see him being with other dogs or children just as a risk of something triggering what we can’t explain. Max is up-to-date on all of the shots and in good health.

Story
Wyatt is a goofy, happy 2 year old! He is a large guy weighing in over 100 pounds, but he thinks he is the perfect lap size. He loves getting all the attention and belly rubs. Due to spinal cord disease Wyatt has urinary incontinence and wears a belly band. He also was born with congenital deformities on his hind legs, causing him to have limited mobility. He has a custom-fitted wheelchair that he likes to use when he goes for walks. Despite his physical limitations, Wyatt doesn't let anything dampen his spirits. He loves life and is happy just to be with people anywhere he is. If you would like to meet Wyatt please contact vpape@lollypop.org

(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)

Story
He may only have one eye, but Clint can see a bright future with you! 4-year-old Clint is a smart guy who already knows how to sit, stay, lie down, come, and roll over. Positive-reinforcement training is a great way to bond with a new dog, especially one who's as food-motivated as Clint, so you can have a lot of fun teaching him all kinds of fun tricks in exchange for treats. Meaty snacks are his favorite! Another thing Clint enjoys? Long walks to burn off energy. He loves to put on his harness and go. Are you a runner? Even better! He's used to going running around Cobbs Hill Park, and we think he'd love to explore more of the area's many beautiful green spaces by your side. One thing Clint doesn't enjoy? Other animals. He should be your only pet so he can soak up all your love. He's very friendly with people, though. Just give him a few minutes to say hi, offer some nice treats or maybe play a game of tug, and he's a friend for life. Though he hasn't lived with children, he did well with kids who came to visit, so we'd like him to meet the whole family here at the shelter before heading home. Clint is winking at you as a hint that you should take him home! Why not give him a chance?

Female, 3 yrs 5 mos

Story
3-year-old Honey sure is sweet! She is a fun gal who loves playing with toys, especially ones that squeak! She can entertain herself for a long time just lying down with a nice chew toy. This lady is house-trained and working on crate training. She would also love to do some positive reinforcement training with you to learn even more! Honey has been on a few adoption sleepovers that weren't quite right for her - we've learned that she doesn't seem to be a big fan of other animals or small children. We recommend that any kids in the family are 12 and up, and that Honey is the only pet in the home. This lucky girl is staying in a foster home while she searches for her furever home, and her foster mom says she's she's settling in nicely. She loves spending as much time as she can with her foster parents, so we think she'd thrive in a home where someone's around most of the time. Do you work from home? Honey would love to be your four-legged assistant. She enjoys her walks, and isn't even fazed by loud distractions like lawn mowers and sirens. Though she's not crate-trained yet, she's started voluntarily walking in and spending a few minutes there. Bottom line: Her foster mom says she's "really a sweetheart" and would love to make arrangements for you to meet her. If you're interested in meeting Honey, please email Hannah at hhecht@lollypop.org to set up an appointment to see if it's a match!

Story
Cloud Flutterloop is one of several dogs who came to Lollypop Farm together and is now looking for a perfect home to start his next chapter in life. In fact, we're pretty sure he's crossing his paws that home might be yours. For Cloud Flutterloop the world and everything in it is still brand new and sometimes even a bit overwhelming. That includes new people, so be prepared to go slow, let him set the pace, and be waiting with soft praise and tasty treats to reward every step. The old saying that good things come to those who wait is true when it comes to Cloud. When he finally offers you his love and trust, and welcomes - even asks for - your touch, you're going to feel on top of the world. We think Cloud will do best in a quieter home with either adults only or older children who are able to let him settle in without the enthusiastic attention younger children are generally eager to show a new pet. A fenced yard would be great, giving Cloud Flutterloop a safe space to hang out with the family and take everything in, joining the fun when he's ready. In his previous home Cloud Flutterloop lived with lots of other dogs and felt very comfortable with them. In fact, if you already have a dog at home that's a big plus, because a canine companion will be a good confidence builder. Your counselor can give you guidance on how to introduce them. Once they become comfortable together, your dog will help Cloud get used to his new home and family, and even help him learn the simple pleasure of walking on a leash by demonstrating how it's done and why it's fun. There were no cats in Cloud's previous home, but his housemates who've gone to their new homes have done well with their new cat siblings. If you have a cat or several, your counselor can give you great tips for handling inter-species intros once you're home. Before he goes home we'll do a meet'n'greet with the whole family here at the shelter to make sure everyone's starting off on the right foot. And once you're all home together, we'll be here to cheer you on and answer any questions as you help Cloud learn the joys of a home and family of his own. So come on out to see us! Cloud Flutterloop and all our other available dogs would love to meet you.
