Story
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 t 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. Donations help us offset boarding costs and additional medical treatment for those dogs who need it.  K-9 Lifesavers receives NO federal funding and survive with your generous support!

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
Toby-at-a-glance: 3-year-old, male, soon to be neutered, Great Dane/Plott Hound mix, up-to-date on core vaccinations, heartworm negative, and microchipped. Toby is on monthly tick/flea/heartworm prevention. He does need a yard with a tall fence.  Toby is the cutest wiggle butt! Every morning, he does a full-body wiggle to start his day. He is well-versed in high fives and kisses. Being taken in by his foster family/LovePaws from an overcrowded, high-kill shelter, this sweet boy is very loving and affectionate with an affinity for walks, chew toys, and his bed/crate. He has done well with older children, even playfully stealing a fluffy toy from the youngest member of his foster family, and his foster parent reports he will likely be good with younger ones too. Toby is an active dog who would enjoy a nice yard with a tall fence, and lots of walks/runs. He would be eager to go on adventures with his new human(s). Once he gets his exercise, he is content to settle down and cuddle/chew on his toys. His foster reports he may have seasonal allergies and is fascinated by small animals/birds. Toby is graceful, and fast, with the most beautiful shiny coat! If you are looking the a snuggly, active buddy to accompany you on adventures, Toby is the one for you!  Interested in adopting? Of course, you are!

Story
Female, 1-2 years old, 105 lbs Layla is a big goofball who was surrendered to the shelter because her owners didn't have enough time to take care of her. She deserves someone who can appreciate her snuggles and give her lots of treats. Could that be you? Layla is new to the rescue. We will add more information as we get to know the dog better. If you are interested in meeting a dog or cat, we require an adoption application. If the animal has "HAS APPLICATION" listed, they are still available to receive additional applications but also may be in the process of being adopted soon.

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.comApril 16, 2024, 6:34 pm
