Story
I have had Booth since he was a small puppy. He has been my best friend for 7 years so it pains me to even think about doing this. He is an amazing dog, he loves people, he has a ton of energy, he loves to play, loves cuddles and pets, and loves basically everything. Unfortunately as a puppy he broke a toenail under the skin and because of that he has always been sensitive about his paws. We are moving to a place and will be surrounded by toddlers and young children constantly, and with that we are scared for him to be around then with his paws. Booth is a great dog but with this problem we are nervous with him around the children. He is not the biggest fan of children in his face. I would love for Booth to go to a home with a home with someone to give him plenty of attention. He will attach himself to you and love you so much.

Story
Raksha, or Rocky for short is a pure bred sable GSD. She is 8 years old, I have had her for about 3.5 years. My life has become to busy and hectic as im traveling for work to give her to attention she needs and deserves. She does great with other dogs and would do good in a home with friends. No cats! She is UTD except she needs a lymes shot. She had lymes a few years ago but was cleared at her last vet visit a couple months ago. She will come with everything I have for her. Breed experience preferred. She’s healthy and active. Knows basic commands. Has free roam of my house. She’s an awesome companion!

Story
This is Chanel. She is a little over a year and a half old. She grew up in an outside kennel. She is the sweetest girl with beautiful coloring. She is considered to be small/medium but she has a big personality. She is a very active girl and would do best in an active home. She can be a little nervous when she is in the house. She definitely prefers to me outside and running around. She is great with other animals. She has a submissive personality. She has started her house training, leash training and crate training. She is shy and reserved when meeting new people but she is very food motivated so that helps to make training easier. She prefers to be with people and other animals rather than being alone.

MaRishka

Husky Hound (Unknown Type)

Grove City, PA

Story
MaRishka... MaRishka came into the rescue while she was still in the womb of her mama, Mama-ishka! A good samaritan reached out to us to help Mama. She was a regular stray in the neighborhood especially after her owners up and left her behind. They moved and didn't bother to take her with them. MaRishka is the only gray pup of her litter. She is adorable, sweet, and loves to give kisses. She is at times quiet within the five puppies in her litter. She will sit back and watch everything around her. She is a smart girl! Of the four girls pups, she is the biggest one. MaRishka has taken to learning her puppy lessons from her mama very well. Mama-ishka has taught the kids that you don't pee/poo in your bed area nor near your food. Manishka is being kennel trained. She falls asleep by 10pm and wakes up bright and happy at 7:30am. She is also being potty trained. She will wake up and quickly make her way to the backyard door. She will even wake up from her naps and cry out to let us know she has to pee. She is a FAST learner! But, considering her very young age she will need continued training to help her be the best pup that she can be. She's at the perfect age to introduce into any home! This little girl is also a HUGE LOVE BUG!!! She does love to be petted, held, cuddled, etc. She will happily look at you with her big GORGEOUS BLUE eyes and give you a big wet kiss! Her gaze will melt your heart!!! MaRishka is ready to learn, love, and live with her family. Are you ready to have a fun and happy pup as a member of your family? All of MaRishka's vetting has been done by my personal dogs' vet. The following is a list of what has been done for her... Spayed All 4 - DA2PP shots (Distemper, Adenovirus Type 2 (Hepatitis), Parvo, and Parainfluenza) Bordatella shot Rabies shot Dewormed Tested, Treated (if needed), and retested for giardia and coccidia Iverhart heartworm preventative Simparica fleas and ticks preventative Chipped There are two categories of vaccines: “core” vaccines that are recommended for all pets, and “non-core vaccines” which may be recommended by your vet based on lifestyle and exposure risk. The core vaccine for dogs is the Rabies vaccine, which is required by law. The second core vaccine for dogs is often referred to as the DA2PP or DHPP vaccine. This stands for “Distemper, Adenovirus Type 2 (Hepatitis), Parvo, and Parainfluenza”, meaning that this vaccine protects against FOUR different diseases. It is especially important for puppies to begin a series of DA2PP vaccines at six to eight weeks of age, as natural immunity obtained from the mother decreases and puppies become very susceptible to potentially life-threatening diseases such as Canine Parvovirus (Parvo). Parvo is transmitted through feces and can remain in the environment for at least one month, and up to a year if the conditions are right. This means that puppies do not need to be directly exposed to another dog that has Parvo in order to contract the disease, and caution is advised when choosing where and how to socialize and exercise your pup. We recommend avoiding exposure to unknown dogs or public places until your puppy has finished their vaccine series. BUT, all A.M.O.R. puppies (1 year old and less) have all FOUR shots. They are safe to join you and your family on your outdoor adventures and you can rest at ease. Non-core vaccines for dogs include Bordetella, Influenza, Leptospirosis and Lyme. The Bordetella (aka: Kennel Cough) help to prevent highly-contagious respiratory diseases, and are essential for dogs that may be exposed to other dogs, especially in group settings such as dog parks, daycare, or boarding facilities. All A.M.O.R. dogs and puppies are given a Bordatella vaccine. Bordatella boosters are given every 6 months. https://www.thedrakecenter.com/services/dogs/parasites/deworming-dogs The above link is to provide you information regarding why deworming is so important for all dogs of all ages (and for their families). All A.M.O.R.s are dewormed upon entering the rescue and then again 5 days before their health certificate visit (when they have been adopted and ready to travel). This dewormer is issued per our vet. And all pets are tested, treated (if needed), and retested for coccidia and giardia. A.M.O.R. provides you with this information so that you can be aware of the work and love that is given to each pet. Each puppy has visited the vet AT LEAST 5 times during their stay with us. They have seen the vet 4 times for their shots and will see the vet 1-2 more times prior to transport in order to obtain a health certificate for travel. Adult dogs have seen the vet AT LEAST 3 times. Two visits for their shots and 1-2 visits prior to transport in order to obtain a health certificate. Are you ready to have a lifetime of fun with MaRishka??? All animals receive a health certificate (stating that a licensed veterinarian saw the pet and deemed it healthy for travel, but is not a promise of perfect health). Please email for an A.M.O.R. application in order to be considered. Please note: this pet is located out of state.
