Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Gorgeous Blue, how could this girl be a stray!  Blue has been with her foster now for a long time and has been working hard. She is more than ready for her forever home. She is completely house trained! She LOVES to give hugs and is the best cuddler!!  Blue can play fetch ALL DAY LONG!! She has the softest fur, she's plush like the best stuffed animal ever!! We know she does not like to be alone so this sweet girl would like a family where someone is home most of the time, or another quiet friendly dog to be her companion. Blue is not a fan of small dogs and is selective with big ones so she will need to meet any doggy family she will potentially live with first!  Blue has been working with and is being fostered by Puppies for Patriots in MT   Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.July 22, 2024, 7:18 pm

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Willow  has had a rough few years. Health issues have had this girl being a frequent visitor to the vet. We were contacted about this sweet girl and that her family was not able to afford her care and were considering euthanasia. Over the past several months and a couple of procedures, Willow is feeling good!! And now it’s time to find her a new home.  Willow had spent her life outside with a female ST Bernard. She prefers to be in charge but the two of them had gotten along well together.  She had been an outside dog but after months in her foster home Willow is now happy being an inside girl. This is what her foster mom says about her.... I'm looking for a family with lots of compassion and love to give. Most of my life was spent in a barn with little to no outside stimuli. My previous owners also debarked me. I still bark but it's very muted. That's why my foster home has been the perfect place for me to adjust as I have introduced to home life and lots of everyday stimuli but certain things still scare me. Mt temp family has also tried to help me gain my confidence with my muted way of communication by praising me for protecting the house when I bark! I love to be outside, it's sometimes hard to coax me in so my family can leave. I'd probably do amazing with free access in or out of the house with a secure yard a nd a dog door. I've never tried to fence jump or escape my yard. I love to play outside with myself and I love the snow! Don't waste time buying me toys because I snuff my nose at them, I prefer to be chased and played with in the yard with my humans. I grew up with another dog with my previous family and have played with neighbor dogs through the fence, I've been around cats and they don't seem to affect me at all but slow intros would be needed as I've lived in a home with no cats or dogs for several months now. I can be selective with dogs so slow intros are a must and I should pre-meet any pups living in your home to ensure compatibility and success. I take some time to warm up to new people and a longer period of time to warm up to men. Most of all, I love being with my people! I love attention and I'll nose nudge for pets and scratches. Belly rubs, pets, and treats are my favorite things. I am the best protector and love bug you'll ever meet. I love my snuffle mat and licky mat when I'm over stimulated by the garbage man or thunder, that stuff scares me and sometimes I need distracting stimuli to calm me down. Most of my time is spent napping, I'm fully house trained, I know command such as sit, down, place. However, I'm a typical Pyr and the word "come" seems to be a word I choose not to hear. I am fine being left unattended. I'd be a beautiful addition to any home, I'm an overall sweetheart.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Jeannette and her sister Margot were dumped in Brigham City Utah. Taken to the shelter after having several days of sight seeing, they are now in a foster home in WA. Jeannette is an absolute love, she does well with other dogs but she can take several weeks to settle in. In her foster home it took her over a month to decide the other dogs were ok to play with and it was a good place to stay. For that reason Jeannette really needs 6ft vinyl fencing, since she has been known to be a bit of an escape artist! She will chase cats and chickens but could potentially be trained not to. What Jeannette loves is people!! She's always there to give hugs and kisses! Her ideal life would be acreage, tall fences, and a family. Another dog would be a bonus for her but is not absolutely necessary. Please apply for this love if you can give her the wonderful life she deserves. Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.July 22, 2024, 7:18 pm

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Sheba is guessed to be around 6 years old. She absolutely adores people and can’t get enough attention!  She’s good with other dogs who are submissive and give her space. She encountered kittens and paid them no attention. She also doesn't understand her size so small animals should steer clear.  She is a certified fence jumper! She can clear a 6' vinyl fence! What an athlete, this girl is! Not to worry, she can easily be walked on a leash or put out on a zipline as long as she isn't left alone. She is a good girl in the home alone if you need to run errands! She has been bounced around from home to home and in and out of shelters where she shuts down. We found her a temporary foster with moments left to get her safe and now she desperately needs a forever family! This girl can't seem to catch a break and she needs her very own HERO! Are you going to be that HERO for her?    Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.July 22, 2024, 7:18 pm
