Story
Zeus is 8yrs old. We have had him and his sister since they were 12 weeks old. The two are always together. They sleep next to each other and most of the time snuggling one another. We had an invisible fence since we got them so they are use to staying in the yard even when taken to someone else's home. He loves to go on walks. He loves to roll around in the snow. Even though he is a big dog, he thinks he is a lap dog. If you let him sit on the couch with you, he likes to be laying across your lap or legs or at least right up against you. If he sleeps in the bed, it is the same thing. Both him and his sister like to be right up against you or have a paw on you. I am hoping to find a good home for him and his sister together. I have recently had unfortunate life changing events and I need to find them a good home. My husband passed away and I had to move out of the house.

Haley is 8yrs old. We have had her and her brother since they were 12 weeks old. The two are always together. They sleep next to each other and most of the time snuggling one another. Haley likes to lay in the sun but also, likes to play in the snow. We had an invisible fence since we got them so they are use to staying in the yard even when taken to someone else's home. She likes to go on walks. Even though she is a big dog, she thinks she is a lap dog. If you let her sit on the couch with you, she likes to be laying across your lap or legs or at least right up against you. If she sleeps in the bed, it is the same thing.

He is pure breed Dalmatian. We paid over $1600 for him as a puppy. He’s born on 11/22/2020. He was eating fine (dry dog food) when we had our other dog. We had to put her down for health reasons and now Flash won’t eat. He will eat wet dog food though but we can’t afford all that.

Story
Brindle Pitt looking for a new forever home. We rescued him a little over 2 years ago and never had a problem. (He did show aggression at the rescue place he was at towards other dogs, they believe he was used for fighting as he has a few scars on his legs but he was found on the side of the road) He did a meet and greet with our 2 little pups (chihuahuas) with no problem (his aggression was towards larger dogs) he has lived with them for almost 3 years with no problem. He just recently started showing small signs of aggression and we came home to my little pup dead. He had killed him. he just hasn’t been the same since. He shows absolutely no signs of aggression with kids or people at all only other animals. He would do great in a home where he is by himself.

Story
Baxter is a youngster of a sheltie boy and just turned one year old and has a huge about of energy. Baxter is very friendly and loves to explore, and like may puppies will get into things if not supervised. He needs to have an energy home that will give him plenty of physical activity as well as mental activity as he is one very smart sheltie boy. While Baxter is perfectly house trained, he will need a home that can continue to work with his social skills as he does bark at cars, does do his alert barking and likes to jump up with his front paws, so he will need some additional training work and getting into a regular socialization and obedience class would be a huge plus for Baxter. We feel Baxter would do best in a home that knows and understands a very active sheltie and the herding breed in general, and a home that is familiar with obedience training classes and willing to work with Baxter. He would do excellent in agility sports and any dog sport that would challenge him both physically and mentally and work side by side with his new owner. This would be the best home and fit for this active boy. Baxter is great with other dogs and loves to play with them and run and chase. He would also do fine with a cat or two as long as he is supervised when meeting them. With Baxter's energy level, we will not adopt him to a home with small children and children must over the age of 12 as he could knock down a small toddler. Baxter is 30 pounds and neutered and up to date on all of his vetting care. He will need a SECURE FENCED IN YARD and we will not many any exceptions. We do require an application that will consist of reference checks and a home visit and we adopt within the state of PA or just over the PA state lines but will not consider a long-distance adoption as we require a home visit with one of our volunteers. If interested in more information or completing an application, please contact us at Heart's Promise Sheltie Rescue, pasheltierescue@gmail.com or mikelamontshelties@gmail.com Baxter is being fostered in the Allentown, PA area. We have a downloadable adoption application form on our webpage if you feel you have a good energy home for Baxter. Our Webpage address is: http://pasheltierescue.org/

Story
Jack's owner, my mother, had an emergency healthcare need that has left her unable to care for Jack. My wife and I have been temporarily homing him, but we don't have the ability to accommodate for him in our home long-term. We are hoping we can be involved in finding him a forever home. Jack is 9 years old, but he still gets the zoomies--he and my son will run from one end of our house to the other over and over. He'll grumble at you if he needs outside or wants your attention. He cuddles by leaning into you like you're cuddling up to watch a movie. He's protective of his food around other dogs (growls and hovers around his bowl), but he has no issues with humans interacting with or taking his bowl. He is relatively easy to train with consistency. For example, if he has a habit (like sleeping on your bed), and you keep consistent on the new boundary, he does great with accepting that.
