Story
Name: Clyde Sex: Male Estimated Age: About 1 year old (as of 2/1) Best Guess for Breed: Great Pyrenees Mix Weight: About 60 lbs Good With: Dogs and people (including kids!). We haven’t seen Clyde interact yet with cats, but happy to test him out. Story: Clyde was rescued locally in Maryland. Clyde is a super sweetie that loves all people and gets along great with other dogs and puppies. His foster says he listens well, understands basic commands, walks well on the leash and is great with their daughter. He knows just how to get comfortable up on the couch with his humans, and will love to join you on walks and trots around the neighborhood. Clyde is just looking for someone to be his new best furend and we know that he will repay them with endless amounts of love and tail wags. As a puppy, Clyde will need an adopter who is committed to setting him up for success by enrolling in obedience training and exercising him both mentally and physically. He will also need love, patience, and socialization in order to thrive! CLYDE’S PERFECT MATCH: PERFECT FAMILY: Clyde is a friendly, playful, smart, obedient, and lovable puppy. He is house broken and well behaved. He is very trainable. He gets along with people of all ages and other dogs. He is perfect for a family or an energetic individual/couple that will take him in as their own and will play with him and help him get exercise.  PERFECT HOME: A fenced in yard would be preferential, however, as long as he gets plenty of walks and is able to visit his friends at a dog park. He is mild-mannered and laid back for a puppy, but will get excited seeing another dog. He also loves to play fetch. BEHAVIOR IN HOME: Clyde is potty trained and will let you know when he needs to go. He loves his chew toys. In the home and yard he stays close to his people and often likes to snuggle with people or other dogs. He has not been observed with cats.  CRATE: He sleeps in his kennel at night and goes in with little prodding. He is not happy initially when you leave for the day but settles in within a few minutes and is well rested when you return home. FUN FACT:  He loves ice cubes and runs to the ice maker every time it is in use. If you think that Clyde might be your perfect match, apply today!       February 21, 2024, 11:42 am

Story
Meet Annabelle (fka Popcorn)! Annabelle is a cuddler extraordinaire! She's very soft and she loves attention... can you tell by that face?! She is very quiet: no whining or barking. Annabelle is housetrained and only chews on her toys. She is a young girl with lots of energy, so she'll need a yard or at least 2 long walks a day. Foster mom takes her on a 2 mile walk before work and Annabelle is good after that. She gets along with her 4-legged foster brother, but not a toy sharer, at this point. She does need a little work with resource guarding (food and toys) and learning how to be a good leash walker. Annabelle is just about perfect and with a little love and patience, she'll be there in no time! The adoption fee for this dog is $350 which includes routine vetting and spay/neuter. Petconnect Rescue cannot guarantee the exact breed of any animal in our care. The breed listed is based on any background we may have been provided, and the general appearance of the animal at the time they enter our system. For more information, please email at ekerwin@petconnectrescue.org **If you're viewing this on Petfinder, please visit www.petconnectrescue.org to complete our non-binding application.**

Story
Zues is a handsome boy that unbelievably his first owners did not want anymore.  We guess the novelty of his puppy days were over and he was now needing some daily attention and time and they were not interested anymore.  This is a boy that is going to need some patience as he settles in and learns that food will be there for him every day.  He is a little protective and overly interested in feeding time right now.  The chains do that to dogs.  We suggest no young children but any over 12 years is fine.  he wants to take food from the young ones sometimes. He loves to talk to the people at the vet’s front desk and he greets everyone in the waiting room while trying to see the vet.  He is just 2 years old and weighs 52 pounds.  He is neutered and healthy and handsome as can be.  It is best if his new home does not have very young children. We think he is a Golden Retriever mix and he has all the personality traits of one.  He is housebroken, learning a crate and he is not destructive or a heavy chewer.  He loves other dogs and he rides so nicely in the car, like he’s done it all the time.  Don’t think too long on inquiring about Zeus because he will be GONE.  Please email us at ccrnewengland@gmail.com if you would like an application sent to you.  He is in Nashville, TN but we transport northward also.    PLEASE NOTE:   Our dogs and cats are fostered in Tennessee and can transport weekly up to the Northeast region.  Request an application and learn more about Critter Cavalry at https://www.crittercavalry.com/adoption.February 21, 2024, 10:04 pm

Mighty Moses is a handsome golden colored two-year-old, 59 pound, Golden Doodle that is all about boy love.  We tried to post him before Valentine so that a family could gift themselves with the truest love of all...the love of a dog.  But busy times in rescue got in the way and we are hoping that the February month is all about the love of adopting a rescued dog.  Mighty Moses enjoys walks, car rides and snuggled close for cuddling by your side.  He gets along well with other animals both big and small which is a total PLUS.  He is housetrained, neutered and up-to-date on all vaccinations, microchip and on heartworm prevention with a negative heartworm test.  Don't let this handsome, young Golden Doodle slip by!  Email Critter Cavalry Rescue at ccrtennessee@gmail.com  asap.  He's ready to go! PLEASE NOTE:   Our dogs and cats are fostered in Tennessee and can transport weekly up to the Northeast region.  Request an application and learn more about Critter Cavalry at https://www.crittercavalry.com/adoption.February 21, 2024, 10:04 pm

Story
Pepper is a high energy, happy Goldendoodle/Pit Bull mix who is active, wiggly and loves to run. Pepper is ready to learn his basic doggy manners and is just a puppy at 11 months old. Pepper’s birthday is this month and he is hoping he will find someone who has time for some fun training and activities. He would enjoy being your hiking partner and going outside for sniffing walks. Pepper is 70lbs and needs someone strong and consistent. He is learning to sit for attention instead of jumping up. He does not like to be left alone and is vocal so he would not be a good match for an apartment/condo/townhome. If you let him get too excited, he is mouthy and will put his mouth on your hands, so he would be a good match for an adult home or a home with older teenagers that can be part of his training. He is a fun dog and very sweet if he just gets enough exercise. Pepper was introduced to a female dog and he was very respectful of her space. When she told him to back down, he listened.  He also met an adult neutered male dog and he was also respectful. He is very playful and if you have a dog at home, you can bring them by during our Animal Viewing Hours below to see if their playstyles match. Location: Howard County Animal Control and Adoption Center 8576 Davis Rd Columbia, MD 21045 You can call first to see if this pet is still available: 410-313-2780 Option 0. Applications are accepted in person at our facility after you visit this pet out of their cage.  Animal Viewing Hours: Mon, Wed, Fri 10:00-4:30 (Closed at 2:30 the last Friday of each month) Tues & Thurs 1:30-7:00 Sat 10:00-2:00 (Closed on county observed holidays and holiday weekends.)Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.February 21, 2024, 10:33 am

Sometimes we will have more than one application on a dog. That does not mean it automatically goes to another family but you should be aware of the fact that until you are approved and set up for the meet/greet.. the dog could get adopted by another applicant.Meeka is going to need a home with a 6 ft privacy fence around the yard.  If you are interested in Meeka please fill out an application at: https://reachoutrescue.rescuegroups.org/forms/form?formid=4588    Or contact: rorrcanine@gmail.com   *** Click here to sponsor this dog! ***Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.February 20, 2024, 2:16 pm
