Story
I'm in a FOSTER HOME! To meet me, email my foster parent at jillian.e.mayer@gmail.comMomma Longlegs' foster says that she is a TOTAL sweetheart! A gentle giant, Momma will make a fantastic companion for years to come. She's equally happy playing fetch, going for walks, or curling up on the couch for a long nap. She is good in the car, perfectly housebroken, does not chew anything except toys, has no resource-guarding issues, and calmly tolerates baths. Her only vice is leash reactivity -- she wants to meet and play with every dog she sees but doesn't know how big and strong she is! She's a quick learner and is already getting better but will need more help with this. She knows sit, stay, down, and come. She loves every single person (and kid) she meets. Contact Momma's foster for a meet and greet!

Story
Tall Titan, is a strong and remarkable  Warrior, a dog that has fought to be alive and walking  today on this earth.  He has willed himself to come from the depths of pain and starvation to become this handsome boy that you see right now.  He is our Super Hero Pup and our example of a creature that has never given up even when it would have been easier to just go to sleep and never wake up.  When Titan came to a rescue lady’s house that Critter Cavalry knows, this boy was malnourished and just a skeleton of the puppy he should be as a Great Dane.  The lady has a love for the Danes and she asked CCR to please take him into our rescue before she fell in love and couldn’t let him go.  She had enough dogs and just felt the temptation to keep him was too great.  We agreed and soon Titan was ours to raise and get prepped for a new home and family.  Shortly afterwards his foster family noticed he was struggling to walk and his joints were inflamed. Titan was taken to several vets before receiving the diagnosis of  Hypertrophic osteodystrophy (HOD). He has been put on a regimen of medications, high calorie food and hydrotherapy and is now running, jumping and playing with other dogs. His favorite things to do are play with toys, run and nap in the sun. Titan is a large dog and will do best in a home with another large dog or two that he will be able to play with. He will continue to need medication intermittently for some time and to be followed by a veterinarian.  If you have large breed dog experience and are willing to take on this fellas special needs please contact Critter Cavalry Rescue. He is not house trained to hold longer than 4 hours.  He needs to eat separately at mealtimes and he needs to learn better how to play with his toys in a group setting if there are other dogs.  If he is the only dog then there is no special monitoring.  Titan rides like a champ in the car or truck and he is definitely crate trained with good dog/name recall.  He would be easier to watch in the yard if you had a real physical fence installed since he likes to wander off out of curiosity.   Please email Critter Cavalry at ccrnewengland@gmail.com if you are interested.  He is great with young children/boys that are rough and tumble and lots of noise. PLEASE NOTE:  Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.  Further information about us is given on our Adopt-A-Pet site.  The adoption fees vary and will be provided as well as noted on the application you receive.  Contact us at 615-661-5333 or ccrnewengland@gmail.comJuly 19, 2024, 5:33 pm

If you are interested in adopting this dog,  please fill out an Adoption Questionnaire at  https://petstablished.com/adoption_form/43315/generic.  You can learn about the adoption process by visiting: http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/howtoadopt/.  Dog's Name:   Bogie  (BOG0523OWSMN)Estimated Breed:   Pointer / Great Dane MIXApproximate Age:   5-6 yearsApproximate Weight:  94 lbsCurrently Living at:   BoardingAdoption Fee:   $400DOG'S DESCRIPTION:  Bogie is a delightful and energetic guy with a lot of love to give! His enthusiasm for people, playing, and hugging makes him a real "Mr. Personality." He enjoys attention and soft toys, brings joy and laughter to everyone he meets!Given his size and energy level,we reccomend a home without small children. A nice yard is a must. This will provide him with the space he needs to romp and play to his heart's content. Bogey needs to learn boundaries and personal space with other dogs and he would really benefit from a home that can provide him with training and guidance in socializing with his canine friends.Bogey's affectionate nature and goofball personality makes him a wonderful potential family member for the right household. It's clear that he just needs someone who understands his needs and breed, and is willing to provide the necessary guidance and training to ensure he thrives in a new home. If someone is willing to give him a chance, they will be rewarded with a loyal and entertaining companion. Your new pet will require a refresher in house-training. K-9 Lifesavers strongly recommends all new adopters enroll their new pet into obedience training. This provides for an easier transition into a new home, ensures the dog remains well socialized, and helps form a bond between the dog and the new family.    Adoption fees cover basic vetting, rabies (if puppy is old enough), distemper/parvo vaccinations, deworming, monthly heartworm prevention while in our care (if old enough), monthly flea/tick prevention while in our care, and transport costs. K-9 Lifesavers will also cover the cost of spay/neuter at our partner vet at 6 months of age or reimburse adopter for up to the amount of our partner vet cost should you choose to spay/neuter at your own vet.       Foster Program:    Foster homes provide for the temporary care of a rescue until the dog is placed into a loving, forever home.  For more information on becoming a foster parent, and our Foster Program, visit http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/foster/ or email our Foster Coordinator at foster@k-9lifesavers.orgSPONSOR ME! Help Save Lives!    Make a tax-deductible donation today and help save a life.

Looking for a loveable goofball to complete your pack? Lance, a stunning 7 month-old Great Dane mix, is ready to steal your heart! Lance is an uncoordinated puppy who frequently trips over his own paw :P He is very gentle and has no idea how big he is. He walks very well on leash. He would be thrilled to play all day but also is happy entertaining himself with a bone. He is very good in his crate and sleeps through the night :) This energetic pup is a bundle of playful energy and cuddles. He gets along famously with other dogs and, according to his previous home, is an absolute sweetheart with kids! While unfazed by the shelter cats, a slow introduction to feline friends is recommended. As with most shelter dogs, Lance has tested positive for the garden variety of intestinal parasites and received his initial treatment. Lance will go to his forever home with an additional treatment and the adopter will need to have a fecal exam done by their vet 14 days post adoption to ensure he's completely cleared. Are you ready for some goofy adventures with Lance? Then apply to meet him using the link below! bit.ly/4d7XoKd Adoption area: We prioritize homes within 60 miles of Silver Spring, MD. However, fantastic matches in PA, NJ, NY, and WV will be considered!

Story
DISCLOSURE: The adoptable pets in our program are still in the care and custody of owners who wish to re-home their pet. Owners have enlisted Rescue Well to provide marketing and screening of applicants as a service, free of charge. All fees and adoption conditions are determined by the owner. We advise that adopters do not send payment or deposits for pets prior to adopting.  ***** Bruno is 2 years old and weighs 126bs.  He's neutered, is up to date on his vaccines, but is not microchipped.  "Bruno is an extremely loving dog to our immediate family and to two family members who live nearby.  This is very challenging for us because we love and adore Bruno.  But we have to put our humans first.   He knows sit, down, come, and "place"... the last one is used to tell him to get in his crate.  He loves his crate and usually goes in just to nap with the door open.  He has been trained for invisible fence as well as with an e-collar, but behaviorist discourages both."  Bruno is crated when the family is not at home and loves it, as he feels secure and peaceful.  However, Bruno dislikes and/or fears outsiders and doorbells but LOVE car rides.  Bruno is fed Purina Pro Plan Sensitive Stomach Salmon and Rice + probiotic granules. BITE/LUNGE/ATTACK INCIDENTS:  Incidents happend in October 2022 and January 2023.  " Owner's brother (injury, but no medical attention needed), a family friend (no injury), neighbor's elderly dog (no injury).  Account from my brother (my husband and I were away on a business trip and my mom was in charge):  ' Mom, Benjamin, and myself all went into the garage to let him out and I let him sniff me through the crate prior to letting him out.  He seemed cool with me.   I did not know that he was taking trazadone at the time and that he had not received it yet*.  When he came out of the cage he seemed upset and lunged at me and bit me on the forearm.  It was just a quick thing.  He immediately let go.  It could've been a lot worse.  He could've held on and shook but he didn't.  Just a quick warning bite.  I assumed he remembered me and was okay with me.  That obviously  wasn't the case.  I sustained one puncture from his left to canine and bruising from the other three canines.' (no medical attention was sought). *Bruno was on trazadone following his neuter and gastropexy surgery about 12 days prior.  It was meant to keep him stationary during healing.  My husband and I were traveling for his work at the time.  My other two sons were at scouts meeting." Bruno's guardian explains why she made the decision to rehome him:  " We have invested a lot of resources into his health (neuter and gastropexy) as well as obediance training.  Unfortunately for us, we have not been able to rehabilitate him from his fearfulness and the agression toward outsiders that it brings.  After consultation with a very well-respected behaviorist, we have concluded that he could be rehabilitated to interact with outside adults and other dogs, but not with kids outside of our family.   It simply is not safe for us to continue to keep him and have our children's friends in and out of the house.  We have lost trust in his ability to be civil with kids beyond ours.  He would thrive in an environment where he can interact with patient adults, have lots of outdoor space, and be offered training by a reputable behaviorist." Bruno's guardian states the following about children:  Bruno lives with children, ages 15, 12 and 10, but his guardian doesn't recommend his living with children, stating Bruno is " Nervous, fearful, and aggressive.  He should not be rehomed to a place that has children visit." Bruno's guardian states the following about dogs:  Bruno has lived with dogs, but his guardian so she recommends his living with dogs, stating " I do know he originally was surrendered by a family who had a total of 3 Great Danes (his mother and father).  I actually think he'd benefit from living with other dogs who have a healthy social outlook.  A lso, he has a BLAST when he goes to board while we're away.  He makes friends and has a good time.  He also interacts well with the staff (probably because he is not on his territory/our house)." Bruno's guardian states the following about cats:  Bruno lives with a cat but his guardian doesn't recommend his living with cats, stating "He chases our cat.  The cat feels terrorized." Bruno's guardian further describes him as: Couch potato Barks alot Playful Likes to be touched Affectionate Fearful Always at your side Indoor dog Nervous House-Trained Crate-Trained Likes men Likes women Separation anxiety Bruno's guardian describes his ideal future home:  " A home with acreage and a fence that would allow him to run free.  He would be best-suited to a home where children do not visit.  With behavioral rehabilitation, he could be fine with visiting adults and dogs.  We can offer a full report from a renowned behaviorist."

Story
Meet Ringo, the 1 year old Great Dane mix with a unique personality. He was found playing with kids at a school in Texas, but wound up on the euthanasia list for space at the local tiny high kill shelter that is chronically over capacity. He's mastered house training, but doesn't signal when he needs to go out, preferring a set routine. While he's getting used to crate training and enjoys relaxing in it during the day, he'd rather not be crated at night (needs it though).   Ringo isn't destructive as long as he's entertained and crated when alone. He alerts his people by barking when people come by, but he doesn’t bark much. He’s a good fit for households with other big dogs (or none) and older children as he doesn’t realize his size and can knock smaller kids over by accident. He truly does love kids and would love to be a part of a family with some. His energy level makes him an excellent companion for running, hiking, and long walks.   In terms of training, Ringo knows basic commands like Sit, Stay, No, and Release (when he’s allowed to start eating his food), & he is very food motivated. He's a very curious boy and needs mental stimulation, while preferring to be included rather than left alone.   He’s not a fan of cuddling yet (he may have never known that life)! He loves rubbing his head against people he likes. Sometimes when he gives you a head rub, his shoulder follows along with his back and it turns into a whole body rub from Ringo. While he doesn't require another dog at home, he does need a fenced yard as he enjoys wandering. Overall, Ringo thrives with human companionship and an active lifestyle.   DISCLAIMER- Breed type is determined based on general appearance and behavioral characteristics and cannot be guaranteed unless DNA test results or AKC registration were provided at intake.   ***MOST OF OUR DOGS ARE FOSTERED IN TEXAS, BUT AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION AND TRANSPORT OUT OF STATE. Read below for more information.   Our dogs are transported to a predetermined location agreed upon by the rescue. The adoption contract and fee are finalized prior to transport. As a Pep's Pals Rescue direct adoption, the adoption interview/meet and greet occurs on video call (Skype, FB Messenger call, Facetime, etc).    Our adoption fee is $400 plus health certificate and transport (varies by location). This fee includes all current vaccinations, deworming, microchip (additional $12.99 registration fee required at time of adoption), fecal analysis, spay/neuter for dogs 6 months & older, and a heartworm test if over 6 months old. All dogs are current on flea/tick and heartworm prevention. A health exam will be completed and a health certificate issued by a veterinarian within 10 days of transport.   If you are interested in adopting, please fill out the adoption application below: https://petstablished.com/adoption_form/57837/generic ##1994243##
