Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Trudy, Trudy, Trudy    This lovable twenty-five pound female answers to Trudy but her real name is Gertrude.  She is approximately seven years young and trying to enjoy her puppy hood again for the first time.  She apparently had a rough start to her life and is very appreciative of a safe and comfortable home.  Trudy is respectful of her surroundings and obedient to common commands.  Trudy is mostly house-trained and sleeps well in her own little 'room'.   This little girl loves to take walks and is just as eager to get back to her home.  She walks well on a leash usually a few steps in front with the minor distractions of interesting aromas as she strays from the path.  She seemed to experience the great outdoors for the first time or at least recently and she is a pleasure to watch as she learns her environment.  She is indifferent to cats but plays with other dogs well.Adoption Fee $200.Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.April 8, 2024, 4:53 pm

Story
Feb 2024: Summer is approx 4 and 20 lbs. She has to have a fenced yard with an active playmate. If she has both of those she is a fantastic fun loving pup. She is also mostly house trained if she has fence and playmate. Summer loves playing with the foster's Great Dane and Dachshund. She is crate trained. She is not fond of grooming, so you will need an experienced fear free groomer. Summer was found as stray with a male. She was completely matted. At approximately 2-3 years old and 15 lbs. she was obviously used for breeding and has no socialization. She is trying hard to trust. She has tons of personality but is still very tentative to touch. She does submissive pee if you pick her up. Foster is working on getting her to go into her crate, once she does, she is fine. She has very few accidents in the house if gotten out often enough. She is very playful but can be pushy (not a mean pushy) Does great with all sizes of dogs. In her foster home she plays with a Doxie and runs the backyard with a Great Dane. Freds Mission Rescue has an adoption radius of 100 miles from Cincinnati. All dogs are fully vetted, altered, current on flea/tick/heartworm/wormer, and microchipped. The rescue does not adopt out to properties with invisible fences or tie outs. Application: https://form.jotform.com/FredsMission/app

Story
Calling All Cranky Little Dog Lovers! Meet Peanut.....Sometimes we call him Mr. Crabby Pants. This adorable chubby came to us as an owner surrender. They gave him up because he hated the husband...Turns out, Peanut hates most everyone....Until he trusts you. Then you are gold....Until he decides your not. 😉 Peanut seems to think the world revolves around him, and it kind of does. Some cool things about Peanut. Housebroken/crate trained Loves car rides. Is a great office companion. Good sleeping buddy. Doesn't mind cats but will growl, bark and might chase. Loves his person as long as they don't stare at him too much or try to take his picture. He HATES his picture taken. Weird things about Peanut. He gets all mad for a second for no apparent reason. Would rather not be around other dogs. Likes to follow you into the bathroom. HATES his picture taken. (weird huh?) We think Peanut would be a great companion for a single person or cranky dog savvy couple with a quiet lifestyle. Kids are too much for Peanut...He hates them too. Peanut is approx. 8/9 yrs old and weighs 18 lbs. He is neutered had a recent dental and is up to date on all his vaccines and testing. His Ohio tag is included with his adoption. Applications can be found at bchsohio.org or just come to the shelter to pick one up. Peanut is in foster but meet and greets can easily be arranged.

Story
Hi, my name is Bishop, I am a 12yr (DOB 11/01/11) Shih Tzu. I'm on the fluffy side at 23lbs. My Mom just passed away recently and all of my aunts/uncles all have too many pets for me to live with them so they sent me to the best rescue ever. My Foster Mom is helping me to adjust to all the immediate changes in my life right now. I might nip you if I feel scared of you at first. I love to meet other dogs and people. The smells outside are so fun to explore. I love walking, the fact that my front feet curve outward a tad doesn't affect my gait in any way so, it's all good. Another dog (Pom) and a cat live here too. I chase the cat (I've never been around one before) every chance I get. I know a few commands but I will probably ignore you while I enjoy exploring. I would love to find a family that wants to snuggle with me and let me be by your side at all times. Please let me see if we are a match so I can shower you with my charm.

Story
Jack is a sweet 10 year old, 15 lb. Shih Tzu mix. Jack is super chill (calm), happy, and lovable. He loves snuggling and watching TV. He’s great on walks, likes everyone, and is perfectly housetrained. Make sure you have lots of toys, especially squeaky ones, because he loves playing with them. Jack would do best with another laid-back dog, but he will also be okay as an only pup in the house. Jack was diagnosed with and treated for lyme disease - his prognosis is excellent. Jack is fostering in western PA. Please visit our main site for more information or to apply to adopt.

Story
My name is Baby Ruth, I am a small chunky girl, I am also a shy girl and try to stay unnoticed. My foster mom holds me and is teaching me that human contact is not all bad. You see I am from a puppy mil where all we do is have babies, no love or interaction with us unless we have pups. I would love a home to call my very own. If you can open your home and heart to me and be patient I know we will be the best of friends.

These pups are in Newport, Kentucky too!

Story
**Texas adoption only*** This is Joey, a senior dog with the heart and soul of a resilient soldier. For starters, Joey is a beautiful senior Lhasa Apso mix with a unique personality. He's a polite but guarded gentleman who looks like he's wearing a fancy gray suit! Joey is a very sensitive dog who'll need very sensitive, present, and patient people to take him on. For Joey's adoption process he will need several appointments and meetings to see if it is a good match. Joey enjoys long walks, perhaps one of his favorite activities, and will take you on a nicely paced walk through your neighborhood everyday if you get him on the leash! Joey is well trained knowing both how to behave and be comfortable in a crate and relieve himself outside. Joey also enjoys a good tug of war and was a mean puller during his old army days with the other boys in green. He's a child at heart and loves to play with toys! This fellow would prefer to be the only dog in the house but can be tolerant of other dogs. If other dogs are present Joey might feel a bit insecure and start marking. Please don't move too quickly towards Joey! He likes a very relaxed, low-energy environment and is not afraid to let you know when there's too much going on. Joey would prefer no children or at least older children that can respect him and not stick their hands in his face. In addition, Joey prefers people not be too grabby with him. He enjoys his personal space. Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX)
