Story
Are you looking for : Handsom, tall, loving, snuggly, cuddly, loyal, playful and super sweet? If so look no further, Thor is your dream boy! He is located in East TN but Out of state is welcome! In fact if you’re seeing this on adopt a pet the cost of transport to your area is included in his adoption fee! Meet Thor! He’s one very sweet loving and handsome fella! He is weary at first meeting new people but it doesn’t take long for him to warm up to you. He is sweet and very playful. He likes to play fetch and is active. He would do best in a home with older kids and without young children. They are so excitable and have so much energy that they tend to make him nervous. He does well with other dogs that are confident but not dominant. Scary or fearful shy or overly excitable dogs make him nervous and fear reactive. He lacks confidence and needs a home that will teach him that he’s a good boy and that he’s safe. He has been fine with small dogs but we have been told NO cats. He is crate trained and is doing well with potty training and not going in the house or his crate. He is current in vaccines, neutered and on flea and tick and heartworm prevention. He is protective of his people and his home. He is craving to be loved and love you back ten fold. We use Rescue Riders for all our pet transport needs because they are so good with our dogs! They are the best. They are also a non profit so it’s a win win for all! Please inquire about him at petpathorg@yahoo.com Application is found at petpath.org

Story
Delilah was left behind when her owners moved, and the landlord wanted to send her to the shelter. She was pregnant, and there was no question that we couldn't send her to the shelter because her chances and the puppies staying alive were about zero. Delilah gave birth to 9 beautiful puppies on January 8th. Unfortunately, only seven survived. Delilah is about two years old and 52 lbs. She is ready to come to the NJ area on the next transport when she's adopted. Things to know about Delilah: Sits on command. She listens when she's told, "No jump," while excited when the foster goes in the pen with her. Rolls over for belly rubs Not a mean bone in her body!! Delilah is a strong girl like all shepherds are. She’s learning to heal when the foster walks her, but she will need more training. We recommend no cats. Needs a high-fenced yard. Preferably not chain link because she can climb on it. Gets along with other dogs. She loves water!!! She sits in her water during the HOT summer with over 110 degrees in the south. She loves attention and would sit in your lap all day if she could. The best fit for Delilah will be: We prefer an experienced owner with the breed!! Because of her strength, we recommend children older than 13 Active family High-fenced-in backyard Someone who wants the love of a Shep girl!! *Dogs that are posted are available to be adopted. **If you send us an email, please check the spam folder for our response, as sometimes our email is there.

Story
Quote from foster family: “Sarge loves playing with tennis balls so much that we may enter him into the U.S. Open for canines (woof!)” "He is the sweetest dog. He loves people.. he loves to play fight, fetch, tug of war, play hide and seek and then he loves a good nap."Woof-Facts: Name: Sarge Breed: Shepherd mix Weight: 63 lbs. Age: 9 years Gender: Male Health: Neutered; up to date on vaccinesMore Info: Forever home recommendations: Humans with a semi-active lifestyle. Fenced-in yard would be a big asset, to give him space for playing catch and roaming around outside with his humans. Kids: Yes Dogs: Needs to be only dog in the home Cats: No cats in the home Crate trained: Yes. Yet stays home uncrated when foster family is at work/school. House trained: Yes Leash manners: Very good, will bring his leash to you for walks! Personality: Activity level is a great balance of mellow and play. Loves chilling with foster family, going on walks, playing fetch. Loves to be pet, especially firm, yet gentle scratch by his kidneys or gentle belly rubs.How did Sarge find himself at Rescue Haven Foundation? Surrendered from previous owners due to them running into financial issuesApril 14, 2024, 3:53 pm
