Intake Date: 6 October 2023 ----- Age at intake: 3 years ----- Breed: Boxer Bulldog mix ----- Size: 50 lbs ----- Status: pound pull/stray hold expiration ----- Compatible with: dogs, children. Cats unknown ----- Suitable for: home with a fenced yard, possible apartment with adequate daily leash exercise ----- Medical/Behavioral Needs: none noted ----- Additional Notes: Welcome Cora!! This beautiful girl came to rescue with Nora and these two gals are good buddies. Cora is a bit shy sometimes but she LOVES food and treats so she is easy to win over. She can be a bit dog selective and just needs slower introductions and her space in the beginning but she has made friends here. We have not cat tested yet but have a feeling she would do best in a cat free home. She deserves an amazing forever home. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If interested in meeting and potentially adopting please read the adoption requirements and complete the adoption application located at forbellessake.org.

Intake Date: 27 January 2024 -------- Age at Intake: 3 years ----- Breed: Uhm... ? Pound listed as border collie mix ----- Size: 30 lbs ----- Status: Pound Pull ----- Compatible with: Dogs, cats, children. ----- Suitable for: home with a fenced yard. ----- Medical/Behavioral Needs: none noted ----- Additional Notes: Welcome Otev! You gorgeous dude you! He looks like a larger dog in a smaller dog body. I really like this guy! Mellow and seems to really be well adjusted. He was found astray and unclaimed. How? Dunno. I would be looking high and low if any of my family ever went missing. Otev is the victim of another nose gone rogue I am sure. He is a handsome dude and he deserves an AMAZING home. Can you imagine how good looking he would be with a bowtie? Talk about the perfect date for valentines day. He is good on a leash and rides beautifully in the vehicle. Otev deserves an amazing forever home for the rest of his many years of life! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If interested in meeting and potentially adopting please read the adoption requirements and complete the adoption application located at forbellessake.org.

Story
Intake Date: 29 January 2024 -------- Age at Intake: 7 and 11 years respectively ----- Breed: dont laugh...Husky/Chihuahua mix ----- Size: 15 lbs ----- Status: Pound Pull ----- Compatible with: Dogs, cats, children. ----- Suitable for: home with a fenced yard, apartment with adequate leashed exercise ----- Medical/Behavioral Needs: none major noted. Need to lose weight and wear belly bands for a while ----- Additional Notes: Welcome Bros!! Buzz and Woody. Don't poke fun at their names, my creativity was lost at husky/chihuahua cross.These boys are SO HANDSOME. They are small, like a barn cat. So don't let their breeds fool you. I guess it was more chihuahua than husky. These boys came from a bit of a hoarding home so likely some inbreeding or Lord knows what. They are a bit "husky" and not the breed so we are working on a slimfast program. It will be better for their joints and lifespan. After all, obesity knocks a dogs life down by 2.5 yrs on average and these bros deserve to live their best lives NOW. Woody is the father (the short hair) and Buzz is apparently his son. I love them. They are nice guys. This is the first time in their lives that they have had a yard and they are so happy! Exploring and watering every tree. They ride well in the car in their crate and pretty much do everything together. We are hoping at their age that we won't have to split them up for adoption but we will if we have to. Please don't make us have to. Two dogs are better than one!
