Story
With a very heavy heart I have to write this. We have a 2 year old 98lbs Rhodesian Ridgeback. He’s name is Kirby and he is such a good big boy. But needs more attention and needs someone who can be more active with him then we are. I am in school and work full time and my husband works 12hr shifts 4-5 days a week. We live in an apartment with not a lot of space and dogs has to be leashed at all times. He needs more than what we can possibly give right now. He is potty and crate trained. He goes to daycare 2-3 times a week, so he’s really good with humans and other dogs. If anyone would be willing to take him please reach out.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Hi! My name is Ireland Skye, aren’t I a beauty? I’m a 4.5 year old, 55lb pitbull mix, and my foster mom says I am such a special girl! She says if she didn’t already have 4 dogs, she’d keep me forever. I am a very fun girl. I love to run and play, with both my human and dog friends! I’m told I sometimes play too rough, but it’s just because I have such a zest for life! And probably because I haven’t gotten much of an opportunity to play until now! So, I’m still learning what’s appropriate. But I’m a very good girl! If you need to correct me, I will listen. I love toys and balls. I love playing in the water. I love taking walks and going on car rides. I loooove snuggles. Foster mom says I “have no regard for personal space” haha, but she says that’s okay, because I’m a great snuggle. She says older kids would be best though, because I’ll probably knock the little ones over. Sometimes something silly scares me – like a broom. So a family who would take me to training to help me with my confidence would be cool. I’m already house trained and crate trained, though, so we have a head start! Here's something super special about me - my adoption fee is SPONSORED! Mountain West Veterinary Specialists have generously offered to help me find my forever home by paying my fee!  All our regular adoption criteria apply, of course, so you have to have an approved application. You will also need to agree to take me to training classes. If you think I could be the girl for you, apply to meet me today at https://bit.ly/RRAdoptionApplication   Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.May 27, 2024, 5:06 pm

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. A recent conversation with Luna Lovebug, our 2 year old pit bull mix. Luna: Mama what is a foster dog? Me: It means you stay with us and we take care of you until we find your forever family. Luna: A forever family sounds great. How do I find one? Me: Well, I tell people what a great pup you are and they apply to meet you. Luna: What makes me a great pup? Me: You really love to snuggle and you are quiet in your kennel and you almost always potty outside. Luna: I do love snuggles and my kennel is a nice safe place. Luna: How can I be an even better dog? Me: You could work on being calm when the kids walk in and not being grouchy with other dogs. Luna: I’m only grouchy every once in a while Me: You’re right and you love almost all dogs but you and Ace are sometimes not friends. Luna: Okay I will try to be friendly all the time. Me: Good, anything else I should tell a family looking for a good dog? Luna: Yes, tell them I love to play and I am pretty sure I am a lap dog and don’t forget that I am adorable. Me: Okay I will. You heard it here. Luna Lovebug is a great dog looking for her forever family. This sweet girl is a 1-year-old pit mix. She is full grown at about 40lbs, so is an adorable litle pocket pittie! Luna has a lot of energy and loves to use that energy playing with dogs of all sizes. She would love a doggy friend in her forever home! She also loves people of all ages and just wants to snuggle. Sometimes she forgets she needs to be calm to cuddle, but she is learning how to chill. Luna is kennel trained and mostly housetrained; she has the occasional accident. She does not do well with cats; she thinks they are fun squeaky toys. This sweet girl does really well on a leash and loves car rides. Luna is looking to join an active family where she can get all the attention and love she deserves. If you think Luna could be the Lovebug you’re looking for, apply to meet her today at https://bit.ly/RRAdoptionApplication Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.May 27, 2024, 5:06 pm

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Hi! My name is Mandrill M (they call me Maddie). I would really like to find my forever home for the holidays. Let me tell you about myself. I am about six months old and the best guess on my breed is heeler/hound mix, definitely some hound in there as I like to use  my nose and you will notice the floppy ears and I am sure you noticed my stunning eyes. My best part of the day is playing with my foster sister and watching her so I can learn. She is a good teacher. I am potty trained and I spend my nights in a little area made just for me where I feel safe. My foster Mom always gives me treats before bed to make sure I know it is a good place. I have learned some basic commands like sit and I know go potty! That’s when it’s cold outside and Mom is in a hurry. I am just starting to learn fetch and I am working really hard on off as I really love to hug and it’s hard for me not to want to jump up to hug you. I am a good traveler in the car so it’s easy to take me with you. I live with 2 cats but I do like to taunt them so only cats that are smart about dogs would be best. I get along great with all size of dogs as long as they are nice to me. Oh and I should not forget to tell you that I am great on a leash. The hardest thing for me is meeting new people. I am very timid so I really need someone who is patient and willing to let me get familiar with you before you expect those hugs but once I am comfortable get ready because I will want lots of loves and reassurance. I am eager to learn and adventures would help me to build confidence and help me to bond with you. I will get very attached to you because I will be looking to you for reassurance to know I am safe. I am so excited to find my new home and become part of a family. If you think you could love me for a life time please apply to meet me at https://bit.ly/RRAdoptionApplication Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.May 27, 2024, 5:06 pm
