Story
Morty is a 3 year old German shepherd chow mix. He loves to run around outside and go for jogs. He would do best at a home with a lot of land or a large fenced in yard. He plays very gentle with other dogs even small ones. He is good with cats but it takes them a while to warm up to him because he’s way bigger than them. He loves to play with toys inside and he lives to snuggle. He is goofy, loving, and loyal. He is an amazing companion.

Story
 Do you know what I mean when you see a dog that is so gorgeous, he stops you in your tracks? Well, introducing Chancey! This incredibly handsome 4 year boy is now available and looking for a loving home. He has been a wonderful house guest, and really just appreciates being in a home and hanging out. He is potty trained and house trained, and has been good with my 7 year old grandson. He knows a few commands, like sit and shake, and is eager to learn new things if treats are involved. He does pretty good on leash, but does pull a bit occasionally. I have found he does better in a crate if there is another dog in the home he can see. He has been polite to my 25lb senior dog, and had a blast playing in the fenced in yard with another foster puppy. I am asking for a fenced in yard, or an active family that will get him out of the house for long walks or hikes. No condos or apartments due to him being loud on occasion.  His adoption fee is $250, and includes all up to date vetting, neuter, microchip, and endless love from Chancey!! Please fill out an application at pawsandprayers.org if you would like to be considered to adopt this awesome guy. Please also feel free to email me at sswank1@gmail.com after your application has been submitted. This pet qualifies for the Pets for Patriots program.

Story
 If you're in the market for a new family member, and love the big boys, Brutus just may be your guy. This 12 month old pup currently weighs approximately 110lbs, and is expected to get larger. He has learned to mind his manners in the home, loves playing with his toys, and is crate trained. Brutus is currently in a home with 3 small children, and he adores them more than anything, but his family is concerned over possible guarding issues in the future, so he is needing a new home. I will be looking for a family with breed experience only. I would love a fenced in yard, and an active family that will get him out for walks or hikes. If you are interested in adopting this handsome boy, please fill out an application at pawsandprayers.org. His adoption fee is $200, and he is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm/flea/tick preventative.  June 15, 2024, 9:31 pm

Story
~Courtesy Post~ Ted is a 2 year old German shepherd, who is desperate to find a new forever home. Living most of his life tied to a tree, Ted has been forced to endure a lot. He is looking for a committed, dog savvy owner living in a calm, low traffic home with no kids. Ted is extremely loving and loyal to the people he knows and trusts, but he does not warm up to everybody. He will need a family that understands his limitations, and is willing to accommodate his needs. Ted has gone through extensive training with Will Sazlavsky and this dog will receive continued support. He’s an amazing animal. Ted has learned and mastered many commands, he is super attentive, intelligent, gentle leader trained, positive reinforcement only. He has made incredible strides, he loves to please his owners. This dog needs follow through, exercise and if you have family gatherings he prefers to go to his “room” or crate. He’s a dog that will give you the world. He’s loyal, protective playful and is incredibly loving. We will be only looking for applicants with previous GSD experience, no exception. Ted has had a lot of formal training and requires follow through of an experienced GSD owner. This is an amazing dog.

Story
Ruger is a GREAT dog. The sweetest boy. All he wants is love and his ball. It breaks our heart to have to be taking this step but we really think he deserves more and better. Ruger is an active boy and would do well with a fenced in yard, daily walks or runs and training (the fun kind). He’s a working dog and he wants to be busy. Smell training or seeking objects would be right up his alley. He is extremely smart and trains very easily. Very food motivated with training but even more toy (his ball) motivated. With a newborn and a toddler, I just do not have the time he deserves to devote to all of this and I want Ruger to have the best and happiest life possible. He would do best in a situation where his owner can provide an active environment.

Story
Say hello to Kirby!Kirby is a 4 year old Shepherd mix who weighs around 45lbs! He can be shy at first, but with a little patience he will warm up quickly. Kirby is friendly and affectionate, loves to play and run around outside. He is also sure to make you laugh with his goofy personality. Kirby is an oversized lap dog who loves to spend time with you by his side and would make a great adventure buddy. Due to his initial sensitivity if Kirby were to live with children in his forever home they would have to be 10-13 and up. Kirby does show potential to live with dogs but he would need a slow and proper introduction as he can be nervous at first. If Kirby sounds like dog for you give us a call at: 330-487-0333 ex.226
