Story
Meet Cocoa!! Cocoa is a large girl, weighing in at ____. She is a three-year-old (DOB ) German Shepherd mix. This girl has never met a stranger. She is the friendliest dog who wants to please her owners and always be with them. She loves playing outdoors and rolling around. A fenced-in yard will be necessary for her to get all her high energy out. She is great on walks, learning leash manners well. She enjoys playing with stuffed animals and car rides. Good with kids and has lived with other dogs and gotten along just fine with them, but would suggest slow introductions. She keeps a very clean kennel and is housebroken. If you're interested in adopting Cocoa, please fill out our adoption application at: https://www.allpawsmatterrescue.org/?page_id=5230

Story
Meet Reba, this gentle giant who, in size, is second only to her timid nature. We have gotten conflicting vet information stating that her DOB is 12/01/21, we believe Reba is more on the senior side of life. Reba is in love with Cocoa's babies and is so, so very gentle with them. She will sometimes follow you around closer than your shadow, but she also enjoys loafing around the house. She is housebroken and crate trained, but when nervous or meeting new people, she will sometimes pee a little out of fright, but otherwise potties outside. Great on leashed walks, is interested in cats, and is good with kids. She can be easily startled but just hurries back to get to her safe space/crate. She is a very calm dog but will need patience due to her size and timid nature. If you're interested in adopting our sweet, gentle giant (93lbs.), please fill out our adoption application at: https://www.allpawsmatterrescue.org/?page_id=5230

Loveland, OH
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)

Not good with kids, Not good with dogs, Good with cats, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Daja is a retired military working dog. Daja has been retired since august 2020. She resides in a home with other dogs and this has increasingly caused her anxiety to skyrocket. Daja cannot be in a home with dogs. She is not dog aggressive but she cannot settle with the presence of another dog in the home. Absolutely no children either. Daja does great with dog-friendly cats if properly introduced. Daja is such a sweet girl, she has had a rough time in the military and needs a quiet home to live out her retirement. Daja DOB is 01/30/2014.

Story
Zoey is a sweet, loveable dog but requires a lot of attention. She is 15 months old (DOB: 11/08/22) so she is still young and learning. She is AKC certified and has taken 2 training classes. She needs more training and someone who has the time to work with her. She does well on a leash and sleeps fine in a crate at night. She also needs to be put in a crate when she is left alone because she will get into things and destroy them. She also gets into things if you aren't paying attention to her or giving her the attention she needs. She's a very sweet girl, not aggressive at all. She will jump on people because she has a lot of energy and gets excited. She needs a yard to run around in to be able to get out her energy. And she is an active chewer and will need chew toys. She goes through those quickly. She's not very good with small dogs....she likes to mother them and play with them and that can potentially be dangerous for the small dogs. She just wants to be loved and love you back!

Story
WE ARE A TX BASED RESCUE. THIS DOG IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN TX AND WILL BE TRANSPORTED UPON ADOPTION. Please fill out an adoption application found at haydudeequine.org Gretchen - You are the bridge between what was and what will be, my pathway to a new life! I was pulled from a local shelter, alone and pregnant. I had given birth to some beautiful and healthy puppies that have now all found their fur-ever homes. This leaves me being a SSF(single spayed female) in search of my own LFH(loving fur-ever home)! I am into long walks, nature hikes and ANYTHING water related. I'm passionate and caring who is always looking for new experiences. I love my people both tall and small and get along well with other more submissive type dogs. I'm outdoorsy but also a enjoy the leisures of being a couch potato when the day is done. I'm sweet natured, active and already house trained, just a real fun pup to accompany you with any and all of your daily going on's. I'm looking for someone down-to-earth and outdoorsy that loves water related adventures as much as I do...river, beach or pool, if it's got water, I'm happy! At around 3 and a half years and 60lbs I am at my prime, active and loving life with a more mellow calm attitude thrown in there. A fabulous family addition to almost any home even a first time pet parent. If you are just looking a short term playmate I am not your gal but if you're in this for the long haul, I am eagerly waiting to join your family... to enter into a lasting relationship...with YOU!!
