Story
Lainey is an affectionate 7 mth old who LOVES her human and cuddles. She is a very bright girl. She knows basic commands and hand signals for 3 of them, and is recalled by a whistle command. Lainey needs an active, experienced owner who can exercise her in a fenced in yard, or on hikes. Lainey may have separation anxiety, or it may still be puppy behavior. Lainey currently lives with another (small) dog and two cats. Lainey isn’t aware of her size and strength, therefore, can be a little too heavy with her attempts to initiate play with the other pets. It is important to note, Lainey is not aggressive with the other pets. Her furever family will need to keep an eye on her when it comes to playing with small children, because she can easily knock them over. Lainey is current with vaccinations and is not yet spayed. If Lainey sounds like a good match for you, let’s talk. Look forward to hearing from you 😊

Story
Socialization/training: Ranger has had some basic obedience training as he understands sit down, stay, no, ect. Ranger has been known to be aggressive with certain dogs inside the house, but otherwise does well with other dogs. Ranger was tested with various types of dogs by a certified trainer, his issues with certain dogs are more situational. Ranger lived in an outdoor kennel, by himself, for over 10 years so he is still learning how to be a member of a family inside. Ranger likes things calm in the house. He would prefer to be the only dog or share a home with another older dog that doesn’t get in his face. If he were to go to a home with other dogs, very patient and planned introductions outdoors or at open, neutral spaces would be a must. It may, or may not, take him some time to adjust to a new home. Crate trained: His past foster reported that he would settle down in the crate after 10 minutes or so. At his current foster home, this is not the case. Ranger is known to settle down while crated or kenneled if all the other resident dogs are and he is in the same room with them. If not, he will continue to bark and pace to the point he is covered in drool and worn out. He is/was fine with being crated if he knows his foster dad is home (ie overnight), even if other dogs aren’t. Ranger also does best in his crate, with someone home, if there is a storm or fireworks. He doesn’t do well with either. He will shake and keep wandering around the house looking for somewhere to hide. In his crate with the door shut and he feels better (with someone home). Ranger’s life outside has made him more vocal than a lot of setters and that should be remembered in living circumstances where noise could be a problem. Leash trained:  Ranger is fine on the leash and loves to go for a walk. He is a very strong boy for his age and is very prey driven so he will pull and get distracted, but he is eager to please and learns fast. Activity Level: Ranger is very active for a dog of his age. He likes to run around the yard and even likes to play with other dogs. He is always excited when his foster dad comes home and likes to run around and tell everyone how happy he is about it. Ranger also enjoys going for a swim at the dog pool. He mostly likes to run around the pool, but enjoys a lap or two when he’s there. Fence: Due to Ranger’s history of being kept in an outdoor kennel, he is a certified escape artist (with the bruises to prove it). A secure, physical privacy style fence of at least 6 feet will be required. He can climb chain link fences very easily. Behavior: Ranger is a sweet old man who would love nothing more than to lay in your recliner while you are home and nap. He has learned to enjoy being petted and loved on. He has been found to bond quickly and more favorably with men. He has no problem with women, but if there is a couple he will choose the male. He can be protective of his chosen people/person (resource guarding) when it comes to other dogs. His foster dad feeds him in his crate and has kept bone and toy time very supervised. Ranger likes things to be calm inside. He is doing well now after about a year of living indoors with other dogs, but he is still learning. Medical History: Ranger had lyme and was treated but he will test positive the rest of his life. Ranger has several old injuries from his escapes during his previous life. At some point it's believed he had a small stroke as he has one “lazy” eye. Ranger also has typical arthritis and old man pains and is on a daily pain reliever. It is very affordable. He is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, and on monthly heartworm prevention. Foster Comments: Ranger is a very deserving dog. He is a sweet and happy old man. He loves a comfy chair, yummy meals, and to run around outside a little bit.  He is a great eater and loves a big cool drink of water (keep your toilet lids closed!)  Ranger is older, but he still has so much life left and love to give. He needs just the right retirement home that will be patient with him and help him live out his life happy and safe as he deserves.  He is very easy to love and you know he appreciates his new lease on life.

Story
Riley joined our family when she was found being abandoned on the side of the road. She has been a loved member of our family for years. It is with a heavy heart that we are looking to re-home her as we have recently welcomed a baby into our family and we can no longer provide Riley with the care and time that she needs. Riley is a sweet dog who would do best in a single-pet household with older children who are familiar with dogs as she has high energy and loves to play. Riley loves her people and shows her affection by cuddling and laying belly up for belly rubs as often as possible. Riley would be a great companion for a family who has a fenced in yard where she can run and enjoy time playing with her humans. We love Riley and would love to see her go to a loving home!

Story
Meet Joe! He is located in Havertown, PA. We took him in after our neighbor, his owner passed away. Unfortunately, we cannot keep him. He is a sweet dog, gets along well with other dogs and people, loves cuddles, and is up to date on all of his shots. He is fine being in the house alone in his cage if needed. He is also house trained. We are not sure his exact age, but I would say he is an adult. His breed is a rat terrier, possibly mixed, but again we are not sure. I would love to find him a good home! We would include his food, toys, cage and treats. We just want to find him a good and loving home!!

Story
Socialization/training: Charlie knows the commands Kennel, here, “no”, off, trade, leave it. We do our walks with a no pull harness and that help reduce his pulling. He is a high energy dog. He gets along well with other dogs but he does try to be fun police with some bigger dogs. He is a very well socialized and outgoing with all humans. He is a very sweet dog.  Crate trained: Yes, but he has some separation anxiety, so I use a belly band when I leave the house. Leash trained: This is a work in progress for Charlie. He needs a no-pull harness (Gentle Leader or Easy Walk harness) to reduce his pulling during walks. Activity Level: Charlie is your typical setter boy with high energy levels!  Fence: Yes, he will need a home with a physical fence, but 4’ height would be fine for him. He respects the fence in his foster home.  Behavior: Charlie is a true setter with a high prey drive. He loves toys! He's not destructive to property apart from toys, which he likes to play with. He is a goofy boy! He wants to learn and is very food and toy motivated, so he's easy to train. He is very affectionate, as he likes to kiss and nibble his human. He is more of a velcro dog and likes to be with his person, he is learning to not follow his person around inside. Medical History: Charlie is a lucky boy, as with the help of Above & Beyond, he survived stage 4 heartworm disease! He is clinically normal and he should be able to reach typical life expectancy for a setter. He is on a supplement for his heart and needs yearly echocardiograms. He is still on meds for separation anxiety. This dog is amazing and tough. Foster Comments: Charlie is not suitable for low energy environment, as he is a high energy boy and needs to be able to burn off his energy daily. He will need patience from his forever home; he had no self-control behaviors before coming to rescue a year ago, but he has learned a lot and has come a long way. His adopter will need to continue working with him. He will still steal food Foster Location: San Antonio, Texas  Volunteer transport can be arranged in the Continental US within a 1,000-mile distance between adopters & foster home.
