Story
Links is a long-term shelter dog. LIfe in an adoptive home with be a long-term journey. Here's what a new life with Links would look like:The first 3 monthsBonding with her new owner without introducing her to any outside influences or visitors to your home. If someone is coming over in that first 90 days, put her in a crate shut in a room. The focus will be on helping her feel trusted and secure with you. No visits to stores, dog parks, etc. 3-6 months+If you have visitors, put her on a leash and instruct them to ignore her under all circumstances. Do not let them approach her, make eye contact or talk to her. Hold the leash firmly, calm her down by using treats and instructing with basic commands no "it's o.k. Links or any other talk that will feed into her insecure behavior." Once she is calm and in a sitting position, have the visitor toss her treats but ignore her. Focus on confidence building and positive introductions without making her feel unsafe. Once she is relaxed, put her in her kennel so you don't overstress or overstimulate her. 6 months +Once she starts to become relaxed with people coming into your home with low stress contact, allow her to approach people at her comfort level but instruct them not to reach out to her to pet her or invade her space without making her feel uncomfortable. At this point, it's about Links taking life and getting to know people at her comfort level without pushing her limits. Seriously...give this girl a few minutes to warm up and she'll blossom. She recently went to a group activity and initially, she only felt comfortable with her handler and would shy away from others and look to her handler for comfort and protection and if strangers pushed her past her comfort level too fast, she would growl in fear. After a short time, she was interacting with everyone in the group and even nudged some for more attention. The second time she went to meet the group, she was rolling on her back, playing with toys in a relaxed state. They actually called her the bell of the ball! We are working hard to socialize her and build her confidence but that will only truly come from being in a settled home with a familiar family that is committed to her. She is dog friendly and would do best in the home with another dog that can help build her confidence. The family that gives Links the time to adjust and become comfortable will truly be rewarded with a happy and loving companion for life!

Story
We adopted Lou in 2017 from an animal shelter in Kansas. Lou is currently up to date on his vaccinations but is due for shots again in March. He is house trained and has graduated from a training course. He is 7 years old. Lou has unique, bowed legs that are a talking point whenever we are out and about. Lou does well with our kiddo (currently 4). He would love someone who could devote time to playing with and walking him. Lou is playful and silly. He has never met a stranger and is friendly with everyone. He enjoys lounging and cuddling, but also loves playing fetch and going for walks. He's a great companion and a good dog. Lou would do best in a home with older kids who would love a dog to play with (he does well with younger kids but he is a big boy and tends to knock over toys) and/or adults who are able to give him the attention he deserves. He loves to explore his space, so a fully-fenced in yard he is safe in would be best.

Story
Sweet Barbie is looking for the perfect Barbie dream house to call her own! She is great with other dogs, loves kids and everyone else she meets. Barbie is very cuddly and loves her toys and tummy rubs! She loves being with other dogs as well as people young and old and everyone in between. Having foregone part of her puppy time to raise her own pups, she has spurts of energy and would love someone to play fetch-the-ball with her, take her on walks, and perfect her potty-training. Most of the day, though, she loves napping near her person, and her puppy dog eyes will melt your heart. All Pet Central animals are up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations, spayed or neutered, microchipped (registration included), and current on parasite prevention. Dogs over six-months of age are heartworm tested. When adopting, we will ensure that you receive copies of veterinary and microchip records. If you are interested in this pet, please fill out the brief Adopter Survey by hitting "Apply for Adoption" on the profile. After we review your completed survey we will contact you by phone or email within three business days. We're primarily a volunteer organization, so we appreciate your patience. Please note- Out of respect for our volunteers and staff, we are closed on Sundays and Mondays and will not be processing any applications on that day. Do get back to us right away when we call or email regarding an application so that we can quickly connect using the process below: Select a pet and submit an online adoption survey. A PCH adoption counselor will contact potential adopters within three business days (PCH cannot guarantee any pet's availability, but we make every effort to accommodate adopters with a reply and possible alternative suggestions). Counselor and client will then have a conversation to answer questions, discuss any medical needs for the pet and determine the suitability of a match (if necessary, we may opt to put adopters in touch with foster parents). After a match is made, clients will be asked to sign our adoption agreement and pay the adoption fee online through our secure payment system *Please see our modified no-risk return policy. (below) The PCH adoption counselor will then set up a specific appointment time and location. Adopters should bring a pet carrier and leash to pick up. Adult pets will be wearing a collar. It is important that clients arrive on time, neither early nor late. If your adoption is scheduled at Pet Central Helps!: Upon arrival inside the Crossroads Center complex (360 Wylie Drive), look for the black Pet Central Helps! semi-trailer, which is right outside of our facility (Suite 720). Park in the parking lot and enter the facility. A PCH representative will greet you and show you to the adoption room. Your new pet will be handed to you. We will take a "Happy Adoption Day photo with your pet and family. If your adoption is scheduled at PetSmart: Park in the PetSmart Parking lot and enter the store. We will be set up just inside the store entrance. Let us know you are here to pick up your pet! A PCH representative will confirm your information and hand you your pet. We will take a "Happy Adoption Day photo with your pet and family. PCH supports a 21-day no-fault return policy in which adopters are given the opportunity to find a better match. If we are not able to provide advice/tools to keep a pet in the home we offer these options: Exchange for a pet that may be a better match** Receive a refund minus a $40 processing fee** With this approach, we can often turn mismatches into opportunities! Thank you, Pet Central Helps!
