Story
Hi, I am Shadow,They say that black dogs have a harder time getting adopted. I am not sure why because I think black is beautiful. I am an adult around 4 years old. I have lost all that puppy naughtiness, but I still love to play and cuddle and generally be a good girl. I will need some patience because I have a lot to learn when it comes to even the basics, but I am a quick study. Oh, and treats usually help with the learning. I am an active dog who would love to go for a good run every day. If you are a hiker, I think I would love that too. I am good with leash walking; I try not to pull and stay close to you. I like to play with other dogs once I am properly introduced. I haven’t been around children much and cats are made to be chased. Only my opinion! Right now, I spend most of my time outside because my foster mom works, but when I am inside, I know not to do any business in the house that is only for outside.I haven’t had many toys, I am content with a stick or a plastic bottle. Maybe you could teach me to chase a ball and bring it back to you. That would be fun!If it sounds like we could be a family together then just fill out the application and we can meet on a Zoom call.Could I be your little,Shadow To get more information go to https://hope4lapawz.org/adopt and click on the dog's photo. There you will see any videos, more photos and details.

Story
Handsome 10-year-old Jax will make an excellent companion to the person or persons who can help him feel safe. A purebred rat terrier weighing 25 lbs., Jax has been working on reducing his anxiety, which was likely caused by the discomfort of skin allergies, a manifestation of a cancerous mast cell tumor. With the tumor removed and Jax cancer free for over one year, his skin issues are now under control (although he must still avoid food containing chicken). Today Jax is a much happier dog, who likes sunning himself and also walking, jogging, and playing ball; physical activity, in turn, helps further reduce any residual anxiety. With proper introduction, Jax will even play nicely with new dogs, more quickly enjoying the company of smaller dogs, especially females. However, he can scuffle with any dog who ignores his body language or doesn't respect his space. He could easily be a single dog or live with one other dog who is independent or who at least honors boundaries. Due to his moderate prey drive, Jax shouldn't live with cats or other small pets.   Jax adjusts to new routines well and sticks close to his humans. He loves to cuddle but isn't really a lapdog. He's polite around new people if they're introduced in a positive way. However, he hates being picked up, and he'll defend that sentiment with his teeth and wouldn't enjoy being around children. Although he's no fan of crates, it's not really an issue, as he has impeccable house manners. He has never had an indoor potty accident, 'emptied' the trash, or counter surfed. Life has given this good boy a sensitive soul. If you nurture it, Jax will give you his heart. See more photos of Jax at  https://imageevent.com/newrattitude/jax .Our adoption fee is $200 for adult dogs or $250 for puppies under 6 months old. If you are interested in adopting this dog, PLEASE READ THE DETAILED ADOPTION PROCESS information on our website at www.

Story
Agent Mulder has escaped Roswell with Agent Scully and he knows the truth is out there...the truth that his forever home awaits! Mulder and Scully were found as strays, rescued from a Roswell, New Mexico shelter, and transported to the State of Washington. Now they are ready for alien abduction adoption.    Estimated to be 1 year old and weighing a solid 20 lbs., Mulder has a long body, short legs, and one spunky, happy attitude! He may be a mix of rat terrier with other adorable breeds all blessed with healthy prey drives. If it's little and moves quickly, Mulder's on it, so he shouldn't be with cats or other small pets. However, he gets along with every large and small dog he has met, with the possible exception of the one who is probably his littermate, Scully. The two have a turbulent relationship with frequent scuffles, so they will both do much better once they're separated. Mulder has been friendly with every person he has met and would probably do well with older, responsible children, who know how to interact gently with dogs. He would love to be part of a family that's active and that includes him in their activities. He would also be very happy having another dog to play with.    Mulder is doing well with his house-training. He wants to go potty outdoors but can have accidents if he doesn't have quick access to the outside. Mulder is clever, sweet, and eager to please his humans. He'll make an excellent companion, one who is eager to explore the great unknown, i.e. a home where he'll be loved forever. See more photos of Mulder at. https://imageevent.com/newrattitude/jackmulder .Our adoption fee is $200 for adult dogs or $250 for puppies under 6 months old.

Scully and Mulder were found as strays, rescued from a Roswell, New Mexico shelter, and transported to the State of Washington. Now they are ready for alien abduction adoption.   Estimated to be at least 1 year old and weighing 17 lbs., Scully has a long body, short legs, large head, and a slightly shy personality. However, when he warms up, he is very happy and affectionate and loves to cuddle! He may be a mix of rat terrier with other adorable breeds all blessed with healthy prey drives. Little fast-moving pets, as well as cats, had best beware! He's very friendly towards other dogs, large and small, (after he gets to know them) with the possible exception of the one who is probably his littermate, Mulder. The two have a turbulent relationship and frequent scuffles, so they will both do much better once they're separated. Scully has been friendly with all people he has met and would probably do well with older, responsible children, as long as they are gentle when interacting with him. He will be happy with an active, understanding, and attentive family and would love another canine friend to help him with his confidence.   Scully has been doing well with house-training. He prefers to go potty outdoors but can have accidents if he doesn't have access to outside. This clever, sweet boy will make an excellent companion to those who have earned his trust. He'll be eager to make you happy and to join you on an exciting adventure into the unknown, i.e. a home where he'll be loved forever.

Story
Meet Imp! She is lovely girl rescued by our team from High-kill shelter in Korea. She gave birth to his babies in the shelter. Behaviours from the previous foster: She is so gentle that she doesn’t bark at all and doensn’t have any aggressive behaviours. She loves walking and meeting her friends and She loves her hooman so much. She likes to be pat - especially on her butt – and always sleeps besides her hooman. She is doing her job out doors- moving her bowels. She is not a big fan of showering but she seems to bear it- She is so patient. We haven’t found any separation anxieties so far, She seems to be beyond happy when the owners come back home though. She is a little bit timid that she is afraid of some scary noise like vacuum cleaner, plastic bottle and so on. She has so much love in her. Be her loving family and she will be with you and adores you forever. Allergy/health issues: She has motion sickness. So It will help her if you let her doing her job_moving her bowels_ and keep her stomach empty before gettinng a car. *Please send all inquiries to @everlove8282. *Please submit your applications through the application form on our Instagram profile! Our team will carefully consider each of your applications to find the perfect forever homes for our dogs. *As all of our dogs are currently in South Korea, there will be an adoption fee of 700USD + customs fee (if applicable) for each dog. —> all details are on the poster! Please check it carefully.

Story
Animal Profile: Daisy is an estimated 6.5-year-old, 18 lb spayed female Papillon Rat mixed breed who was originally a stray intake to the Caddo Parish shelter in October and adopted, but then confiscated in April 2024 for neglect. She's doing much better now and has been assessed to be friendly with dogs and people. She joined Dog Gone Seattle foster care on 6/3 and we will share more about her as we get to know her in foster care.  Foster Update: Daisy is a treat to have as a house guest! She is well-mannered, rarely barks, definitely wants to be with her people and sleeps and eats quietly in her crate. Our resident dog is a golden retriever and they are co-existing peacefully … unless a ball is involved. They are both very ball excitable and complete relentlessly for a thrown ball. Daisy is house trained and doing well on leash. She loves to go for walks but needs to work on control a bit (birds, squirrels, rabbits and other dogs are very exciting!). Consistency and repetition will go a long way in helping Daisy become the perfect walking companion. This little pup has been a delight to have as a foster. She interacts appropriately with my 5 year old grandson so homes with children will be considered. Daisy should do well with or without a dog companion. She's so ready to find a permanent, loving home where she can thrive. Adoption Info: Adoption fee is $550 which includes spay/neuter, core vaccinations per AVMA standards, heartworm test if applicable, microchip with registration, and health certificate. Your adoption fee may be tax deductible as DGS is a 501c3 organization. All adoption fees go toward the care of all dogs in our rescue.  Apply Online: www.DogGoneSeattle.org/adoption-application Animal History: This dog was transferred from Caddo Parish Animal Shelter in Shreveport Louisiana via Tail Lights Rescue Project along arriving to foster care 6/3/24. She will be available for adoption in the greater Seattle area once evaluated in foster care. July 12, 2024, 2:09 pm

Story
Sassy is a sweet and timid dog. She is very loving. I found her at an animal shelter in Puyallup about 7 years ago. Her breed is a rat terrier. Because she is timid I think she would be best with a family with older children (ones who would not pull on her ears or tail) or with an adult who would love to cuddle with her. I have had her since she was 4 months old. She is potty trained and well behaved. She will bark at other animals. She has been with one other dog for the past 7 years and I added a third dog about 18 months ago. I lived at an apartment complex that allowed me to have all 3 dogs. I have had to relocate recently to a different apartment complex due to a pending job relocation. A former friend was helping me by taking my oldest dog as her own. The friend has health issues and could not manage the dog due to her health issues so I have all 3 with me again. My new apartment will not allow me to keep all 3 dogs.

Story
Adorable little Mina is looking for a warm lap of her own. She is tiny 5.5lb girl that is approx 7yrs old. She is very curious and loves to run around and explore the yard so a fenced yard would be best. Otherwise, she’s very content just hanging out with her person. Mina is a quiet girl so she could be a great condo or office dog companion. She gets along wonderful with other animals, too, and would like another tiny dog in the home to cuddle with, but it’s not required. She loves all people but she can be a bit insecure so kids must be over 12yrs old

SOOOOOO how many people remember Starsky and Hutch?? Probably not too many! But if you DO, please don't prejudice us with the "wildness" of our namesakes'! OK, we are a LITTLE wild and cute cute cute! Found in a neighborhood together at about 2-3 months old, we could have had a very different life.... however, we were found by a couple of high school boys who immediately drove us to the rescue to see if they would help at 5pm on a Friday evening. AND IT WORKED!!! We are a couple of cute boys, we are barkers and that is part of the breed- Rat Terriers are busy and smart and active and they bark! We are cute when we bark though :) We do not have to be adopted together, although we love each other and have been together our WHOLE lives.... but we can be adopted apart. We may be nervous at first if adopted separately but if you follow the 3/3/3 rule, it will take us time to adjust in our new home anyway!! (you will find a copy of the 3/3/3 rules in our medical record if you adopt one or both of us) We are waiting for the right family/families to come along and we hope that we find you or you find us soooonnnnn!! Local adoption fee is $250 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $550 (includes transport to your area)

Hi there I’m Nala,I am a mature, self-confident dog who would love to find a forever home. I live now with other dogs who I love to play with, cats who I respect and play with if they want to, and kids who like to pet me. I have not had much experience with toys, but I do love a good game of tug. I like to be active, but I am good to just chill out with you too. Nothing like an evening of cuddling with the family to make my day complete.I like car rides, I don’t get sick, and I stay calm. My foster says I make a great co-pilot. I am learning basic commands like sit and stay but I will need some work with that. I love to walk and when we do I stay close to my foster and walk at their pace. If it sounds like we would be a good fit, then just fill in the application and we can meet on a Zoom call.Just waiting for you.Nala To get more information go to https://hope4lapawz.org/adopt and click on the dog's photo.

Story
Lola is 1.5 years old. Lola is a happy girl, she’s getting pretty good at catching tennis balls and treats when you throw them at her. She loves to sleep on the bed and cuddle at night, though she is trained to sleep on her bed and in her crate. She goes to her crate when you ask her to, and she can accept a crate punishment, however she is well behaved in the house. Lola loves to play with other dogs, and she gets really excited around kids. She’s still learning to calm down so they can pet her. Lola is pretty low maintenance and will follow you around the house to just lay on the floor of the room you’re in. She’s very lovable, and precious. The best house for Lola is with someone who really likes to spend time with their dog, and has a yard for her to play in. Someone who is willing to schedule puppy play dates for her once a week or more. Overall an active owner.
