Story
Meet Izzy. This sweet young pup was abandoned by her owner in Lake Wylie, SC. They decided they no longer wanted her and just dropped her off in a neighborhood and left her there defenseless to fend for herself. Some tenants in the community started feeding her but when they were evicted and had to leave, Izzy was once again on her own. A Good Samaritan saw her lying on the deck of the empty home waiting for their return and reached out to Worthy Dog for help. This sweet girl deserves so much better, and our team is already working hard to give that to her. Izzy is in a foster home with a mom and dad, three dogs, and two cats. She was immediately accepted into the pack and has good doggy energy. She respects her pack and shares food/attention well. She also connects to her human quickly, and once she settles in, she's very much a lap dog.   Izzy is crate-trained and quickly learned to use the doggy door. She has good house manners and has already earned free roam privileges in the home. She's done well meeting visitors to her foster home and loves people — it takes her a minute to warm up but once she does, she’s all about the pets. Izzy has been through a lot of change over the last few months and was anxious when she first arrived at her foster home. She whined for a day or two when left alone, needing time to trust her new environment...but who can blame her? Like many Terriers, she can be vocal at times, so we don't feel she's a great fit for a condo or apartment and would benefit from having a dog buddy or two in her new home. She does settle in and work through things, but being part of a pack helps with her confidence and makes her less anxious. Izzy has a natural joy for life. She is super sweet and cuddly, loves to give kisses, and loves her toys. She has a moderate energy level and is a happy little dog who will make a great companion.  Apply today!

Story
Adopt Dolce: Your New Best Friend in Training! Meet Dolce, a pint-sized terrier with a heart full of love! At just 15 lbs and around 1-2 years old with soulful eyes, Dolce is the perfect mix of sweet and spunky. She is a gentle soul who's always up for playtime. She loves making new doggy friends and will brighten your day with her wagging tail and warm eyes. While she enjoys playtime, Dolce is also a quiet little lady who’s happy to relax by your side. Dolce is working on trusting humans and can be a bit shy and timid at first, but she’s always so gentle and just needs a little patience and love to blossom. Once Dolce settles in, she’ll be the most loyal and loving companion you could ask for. Ready to give Dolce the forever home she deserves? Mostly housebroken and crate trained, Dolce is also learning to walk on a leash. With a bit of guidance and encouragement, she’ll be your perfect walking buddy but for now a fenced yard is a requirement for this sweet girl. We wish we knew her story, but she is a young dog (she found herself in a high-kill shelter in Texas and would most certainly have been euthanized if not pulled), coming out of her shell more and more each day-will jump up on the couch to sit with you, she isn't yet fully comfortable with being picked up but will allow it- then she just melts into you, loves her scratches and snuggles. Dolce still has a way to go but looking for her hero who will give her time to become the gem that she will be.

Jaden Elyse

Rat Terrier Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)

Female, Young
Germantown, MD
Size

Not good with kids, Not good with dogs, Not good with cats, Needs experienced adopter, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Jayden is a sweet pup with basic house and obedience training including crate training. She is very high energy, curious, and eager to learn new tricks. Her favorite games are tug, fetch, and chase, and she loves a good squeaky toy. I think she would do best in a single person household, preferably someone who woks from home and has lots of time and energy to dedicate to training and entertaining her. Jayden does struggle with reactivity, separation anxiety, resource guarding, and fear-based aggression. We have been working with her vet and a behavioral vet to develop a behavioral modification plan which currently includes anti-anxiety medications. I know that she will be the perfect companion for someone with time and dedication to help conquer her fears and I want to find her a forever home where all of her needs are met.

Story
Hannah spent the majority of her life in a caring home, loved. It was explained that her owner was a dog trainer and she happened to have some “Titles” awarded. (We do not have any documentation) On the farm, where she lived, she was a very good ‘ratter’. Her owner passed, and his family who came up from FL to settle the affairs, left Hannah at the shelter, where we agreed to help find her next loving place to call home! This loyal, intelligent girl needs a gentle, calm place to land. Do you have a calm home? Are you looking for a well trained companion? Please consider Hannah. She is spayed, tested, vaccinated, on preventions, and microchipped. Email me for an adoption application : marysmutts05@gmail.com
