Bug (Cuddle Bug)

Bernese Mountain Dog Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)

Story
Meet Bug (short for Cuddle Bug). He is a neutered 85-lb lap dog who loves to fetch tennis balls, eat, and stay glued to your side. He is quiet and calm, and will lay directly in your lap if you can handle his size. He listens well for the most part. He is not a barker, nor a wanderer. He loves sleeping on your bed and lounging on the couch, but has learned that he has his own bed and lounging area. Bug is fantastic with babies and children, as well as adults. However, we believe he must be in a single-pet household, as he doesn't get along with our other dog (another male). He is an amazing pet, and needs a kind and loving home and an owner who will provide him the companionship he deserves.

Story
Rigby was born April 15, 2020 to a dog in foster care. He is a smart boy who loves hiking, playing in creeks, chasing chickens, and lounging on the bed with his teenager. He has great housemanners and even knows how to work latch handles to let himself in/out. He is friendly with all neighborhood dogs and dogs he meets hiking, but prefers to be the king of his domain and hasnt wanted to be second notch to the older male dog that has been in the family for many years. He needs foster home or adoption urgently. Please consider this young hiking /walking/movie watching pup for your home!

Story
I was dropped off in the neighborhood and on a cold rainy day in January. I went to house to house and stared in peoples doors for over a week. Nobody wanted to let me in. Finally one day a nice lady took my picture peering in her front door and sent it to this rescue that took me in. FosterMom worked very hard to get me healthy and put my weight back on and complete all my vetting needs. when she takes me to Petsmart, I have to say hello to everybody there, practically dragging her around the store. I absolutely love people and love kids! I am a bit of a princess and while I don’t like to get wet or my feet muddy, I also don’t like to share my attention with other pets in the house. I am looking for a home and I can call all my own or I get all the attention and all the love I promise I will make it worthwhile and return just as much love to you. I don’t like being outside very much, but I sure do love a car ride and sit beside the car every day hoping Foster mom will take me somewhere. I have perfect house manners and I am very quiet. My foster home is very busy with a lot of dogs and so I am kept separate. I would sure love to be adopted so that I can be included instead of separated. I really miss being around my people for all their activities. I promise to snore softly in your ear if you just give me a chance.

Story
my brothers and I were dumped out in the neighborhood when we were four months old. We ran together as a pack for several months until I broke my leg. That slowed us down. We saw a lady in her driveway and walked towards her. She got out a big bag of treats and fed us until they were gone. Then she laid out a trail of cheese, which I eagerly followed into a crate. I found myself trapped! My brothers and I were a bit relieved to finally be cared for once again. I am the biggest of the three at 75 pounds and I have thick soft fur. I am a very laid-back, easy-going guy. I will chase the ball a couple times, but then I prefer to roll around in the dirt and lay on my raised dog bed with my little brother. Our leader brother was already adopted. Foster mom says I need a home that has a fence, I am too smart, and how to dodge people when I don’t want to get caught. I would be fine as an only dog, and would also enjoy another young, playful dog to buddy around with. I love to play with shoelaces when they are on feet, hold onto pants legs with my front teeth as FosterMom walks around, and I love to carry stuff animals around the house and take them outside with me. I am looking for an easy-going home that isn’t too chaotic, and will give me lots of love and attention. I am about as easy as they come and my house. manners are great! I rarely bark, but I love to howl when the sirens go by. My best friend here at the foster home is Phoebe who is also posted on this site. We have a good time together and understand each other well. If you’re looking for a dog that won’t drag you all over the place or expect you to walk them miles each day, I am your guy!

Story
Meet Hank. He is believed to be an American Bulldog mix (not to be confused with American Bully). He showed up on his foster’s porch after a bad thunderstorm, emaciated and scared. He is believed to be around 10 years old. With good nutrition he is starting to feel a bit better, and is showing his playful side. Hank will make a great, loyal companion. He loves attention and just needs a loving home to enjoy his golden years. Hank is up to date on shots, heartworm negative, and will be neutered once he gains a little more weight. He just loves car rides. If you think you and Hank could share a fun life together please text or email Teresa 2767910475. Rsimis2@gmail.com
