Story
Noodles is a perfect angel! She came into our lives very matted and in pretty rough shape and quite skinny and at roughly over a year old is slowly learning how to be a dog again!  She is slowly gaining weight and eating well. Noodle has no vison in one of her eye and very minimal vision in her other. She is quite the clinger though so will follow you aroung all over! She gets along great with other dogs and is currently in a foster home with 4 dogs small and large and some kitties. She will try and chase the kitties and get a little spunky at times but, she backs off when they swat at her. Her favorite place ever would be attached to her human every moment of the day if she could. Noodle would love to be a couch potato and go on car rides and any adventures you want to have with her. We have worked on off leash with her and will come to the sound of your voice she does love to explore and sniff but, she will need to be monitored any time she is outside (she is learning potty training by the other pups in the home, but she will still have the ocassonal accident) She does well in a quiet home however has been around kids ages 5-10yr and done well, a little nervous but well!  Noodle doesn't mind sharing her space but, in a perfect world would sleep in bed under the covers everynight. She is create trained and would suggest making it her safe space as she does like to get into things when left unatteded. Please fill out an application to meet Noodle! ##1987665##

Story
Elf is approx 6 years old, and we think a Maltese or Maltese-mix. He is shy when meeting new people, but he warms up quickly! He's so little, he will do best in a home with no/older human kiddos. He enjoys the company of other dogs. He also learns quickly & is super treat motivated. (He'll even dance on his back legs if he thinks one is on its way!)  Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label. Each dog in our rescue is in a loving foster home, where they can grow, play, and recover from their time spent on the streets or in a shelter. If you'd like to meet an adoptable dog, please fill out an application on our website, www.edcr.org. Because we are a foster home based rescue a completed adoption application is required to meet our adoptable dogs. April 13, 2024, 10:54 am

Story
Domino is currently the office dog. He is a tiny little dog with a big bad personality. He is opinionated and slow to warm up. He is also protective of his territory and can be reactive to other dogs. Proceed with caution, but once he loves you it doesn't take him long to wrap you around his teeny tiny paw. ##1942623##

Story
Bandicool Flora came to us from a breeder where she was relinquished by no fault of her own. This is a nice girl who is good with other dogs & with people. She is very sweet but would benefit from some basic obedience and confidence building. She needs continued socialization as she is timid. Her birth date is 05/18/20 & she currently weighs 7.6# full grown. Her photos were taken after spay and she is still sleepy.  She will be groomed before adoption and will need grooming for life. She has been vet. checked, spayed,  micro chipped, is up to date on routine shots & wormings includung rabies, and has been treated with flea & heart worm preventative per our protocol. She is also heart worm negative & had a dental cleaning. Her adoption donation is $550 and needs to be cash, certified check, money order or a debit/credit card. There is a 3% processing fee when using a debit/credit card. Please note that any additional funding collected for this pet goes back into our medical acct. to provide for other dogs in need. We do not ship or transport.Please email for an application if you would like to provide this nice kid with her forever home. ##1912781##

Story
    Dexter is a loving guy however, he takes time to warm up to new people and it is on his time not yours. If he is just allowed to transition into his new home on his own, without a human trying to force it to quickly he will do fine. Does well with other dogs, no cats and no small children. We require   that you have a fenced in yard, not a "kennel" in the yard AND we do not approve underground fencing. Depending upon the dog some exceptions are made for those who live in apartments.   We also require that the adoptee will be a part of the family "living" within the home. Our adoption process may be found on our website at www.bitofheaven.org Visits are scheduled by appointment only via emailing request to ownedbycaninesandlovit@yahoo.com   April 3, 2024, 11:52 am
