Story
Lieutenant Natasha Yar, chief security officer aboard the USS-Enterprise, reporting for duty! Of course, you can just call me Tasha. Much like my namesake character from Star Trek: The Next Generation, I am small but mighty and a true protector! I am also (partially) blonde and my funny tiny ears match Tasha Yar's short hair. Also like Tasha, I have had a rrruff life before now and am happy to start anew. I have a little bit of a funny appearance. I have my tiny ears, looong legs, and my eyes sometimes go out to the sides. It's really hard to know what breeds I may be mixed with. All I know is that I'm super sweet and loving but have no problem being feisty too. I'm still a pup after all! I love to wrestle with the other dogs in the house and we get along great, though I do have to eat separately. I get barky when I have food because I feel the need to protect it! I am doing amazing with things like house training, leash training, and being comfortable with car rides. Behind my tough exterior, I'm actually a very sweet and snuggly girl! I'll rub all over you like a cat and always be by your side waiting for love. I am even great with smaller humanoids. I'm ready for a family of my own to explore the galaxies with. Apply today!

High energy is her middle name, and she's more than ready to soak up all the love and attention you can offer. Personal space? That's a foreign concept to Niabi - she's all about being up close and personal! When she's not showering you with affection, you'll find Niabi in the backyard, where she transforms into a blur of motion, racing around with an unstoppable energy. She's also an avid water enthusiast, always up for a splashing good time with the water hose. Niabi gets along with her housemates, though she's known to give them the once-over to size them up. Supervision ensures everyone gets along swimmingly. On a leash, she's eager but pulls with exuberance, a behavior we're working on refining.Chew toys are a must in Niabi's world - she loves them durable and entertaining. And don't be surprised if she engages in solo playtime; she knows how to keep herself entertained. Niabi is versatile when it comes to her ideal home - whether you're her sole focus or you have a furry crew to keep her company, she's adaptable and ready to make your days brighter. If you're prepared for a whirlwind of affection, fun, and boundless energy, Niabi is eagerly awaiting her forever family.

Story
Meet Cassidy, the Charming Introvert! Get ready to fall in love with Cassidy, a pale white pup with captivating puppy eyes and a heart-shaped nose. Despite a challenging past where he navigated the streets and scrounged for survival, Cassidy's resilience shines through. Now, he's on a mission to find a loving home where he can feel safe and cherished. Cassidy is a dog with a gentle and timid personality. Loud noises and intense reactions make him nervous, and he prefers a calm and serene environment. He needs time to warm up to people and build trust before he feels comfortable and secure. This smart little guy knows some tricks already and is a well-mannered companion during feeding time. He's polite and respectful, showing his intelligence and willingness to please. Sitting on command is just one of the many tricks he has mastered. When it comes to relaxation, Cassidy's favorite spot is snuggled up on the couch or bed. He loves cozy naps and enjoys sleeping in when it's chilly or rainy outside. His head and ears are the sweet spots for scratches and cuddles, and he might even roll over for a belly rub! Cassidy is searching for someone who will shower him with love and understanding. While he respects cats and tolerates other dogs, he prefers his own space and will often retreat to a separate room. However, when the other dogs are not around, he comes out for attention and cuddles. He enjoys the quiet company of a select few men, seeming to have a preference for quieter individuals. It's important to note that Cassidy is not a fan of chaos, whether it's caused by humans or other dogs. He seeks a serene and calm environment where he can feel at ease. Car rides are a pleasure for him, as long as he is the sole rider and not in a crowded car with other dogs. To provide Cassidy with his ideal home, a single, quiet man with no other dogs or possibly a submissive dog that Cassidy meets and approves of would be the perfect match. An at-home social life that aligns with his introverted nature is preferable. While Cassidy tends to avoid general interaction and may not seek pets, hugs, or kisses, he has his moments of affection when he feels comfortable. Cassidy may be an introverted hermit, but beneath his reserved exterior lies a dog yearning for love and understanding. If you're someone who appreciates the quiet moments and can provide a calm and peaceful environment, Cassidy will reward you! (Only) Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX)

Story
(Only available in Texas) Hola como estas? My name is Quintana! I was a sweet little pup found on the side of the road by my foster with my two siblings! Now I've been spending time playing and growing up here at God's Dogs Rescue!All my playmates and I have so much energy and want to spread all the fun around! Now I'm ready to jump into a family I can play with and love! Being of my breed group, I LOVE BEING ENERGETIC! Playing games like hide the bone, fetch and going on long walks! Because of this I would be better suited in a household with no cats and older children only.

Story
WE ARE A TX BASED RESCUE. THIS DOG IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN TX AND WILL BE TRANSPORTED UPON ADOPTION. Please fill out an adoption application found at haydudeequine.org Tina Fey - You are the bridge between what was and what will be, my pathway to a new life! My namesake is best known for her comedic timing and hysterical sense of humor!! Foster Mom says that i am the funniest dog that she has ever met!! I am outgoing and fun loving!! My favorite past times are going for walks, climbing trees, and sitting on foster Mom's lap for snuggles ( she laughs and tells me that I am not a lap dog...Hahaha..fooled her..yes I am a lap dog...just look where I am sitting...on her lap!!:) I am also extremely intelligent and pick up on "human speak" very quickly. I have a great vocabulary of understanding!! At 2 years young, I have reached my adult weight of 35 lbs of svelteness (I think I just invented a new word!!) I am trim and athletic and will do best in an active home where I can hike and play with my new human (s)!! Of course, it goes without saying, I am completely house trained and crate trained. I get along great with other dogs and have an innate understanding of "dog language"! I know when I can play with a dog and when I need to roll on my back and show submissiveness (this is a fake, as I am not really submissive, but know how to play the game in order to not rock the boat!) But, I am not at all alpha, either. I just want to be happy, play, and co exist. I walk well on the leash( although Foster Mom usually walks me off leash) and I know to come when called. I am the Court Jester of the ranch and always have a smile on my face. However, I am protective of the ranch as well and always bark to let my Foster Family know if someone arrives or comes into our space. I am not aggressive, just protective. My ancestry is from the "Survivor Dogs" of the Guatemalan Volcano,Pakaya. My ancestors had to be fleet of foot and clever in order to survive, and I certainly inherited those traits. If you have been looking for an intelligent comedian in a canine embodiment, I am your gal!!

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Meet Lila a very sweet 30 lb., Whippet/Terrier mix with an approximate DOB of 2/28/2021. She is spayed, microchipped, heartworm negative and up to date on core vaccines (Rabies/Distemper).  Lila was found as a stray in Minneapolis and seems to be a bit skittish and untrusting. The adopter will need to be patient as Lila gains trust and gets to know her routine. Lila can be laid back but also has energy that needs to be burnt off through walking exercise, stimulation with toys and play time. As she has been in her foster home her playful side is starting to come out. She enjoys playing with balls but does not understand how to drop and play fetch. She enjoys batting the ball with her paw and chasing it as it rolls down the hill outside. She also likes squeaky toys and plush toys so any small humans might have to share their stuffed animals if they are not stored out of Lila’s reach. With that said Lila is not comfortable around little kids so it is best to be adopted in a house with children over 12. Lila would also benefit from obedience and dog socialization classes in a safe environment as she needs to learn some rules and boundaries and how to be a better dog. Lila does well with other dogs with slow introductions and can be a bit in their face as she just wants to play with them, but also has a jealous side. Her current foster has three (3) dogs, and she gets along with them and wants to be part of the pack. Lila might be best in a home where the human works from home as she wants to be around as she gains trust and confidence. She can be very vocal when left alone or put in kennel so it is suggested that there should be no shared walls for her as well. Lila is house trained and does well when left unkenneled if she cannot reach the countertop, especially food. She has slept in a bed a night and loves being close to the fosters and then will not whine or bark. Lila would benefit from a fenced yard as she tends to want to run and escape her surroundings due to fear and uncertainty in situations and will run away if you try to catch her.    Although you would not know it as she seems fine, Lila has been diagnosed with severe hip dysplasia in both hips, so it is very important to keep her lean. Let Lila her set her exercise limits but also do not let her overdo it.  Swimming would be an excellent activity for her to do and shorter walks. She does not seem to have any pain and x-rays showed there was no arthritis at this time but the vet says that no intervention needed currently but she may need a salvage procedure in the future. Outside walks have gone well with other dogs, but she does have a prey drive and pulls on the leash. Her fosters are working with her on how to walk on a leash, but they do enjoy watching her smell and pounce as she is still a young dog. She could be the only dog or live with another non-dominant, easy going dog her size or bigger. Small dogs, cats, or other animals such as chinchillas, hamsters etc. are not recommended in the house with Lila. Lila would make a wonderful addition to the right warm and loving home. If you would like to learn more about Lila and set up a meet and greet, please fill out an application.    Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.Interested in adopting this lovable animal? Please go to our website www.wagsmn.org and fill out an Adoption Application.  Once the application is processed, a Wags representative will contact you, answer any questions you may have, and set up a time/location for a meet and greet!  A home visit is required prior to adoption.  Thank you for choosing to adopt! Breed and temperament determination:  Wags & Whiskers Animal Rescue attempts to determine breed and temperament using a combination of looks, information provided to us at intake, and our experience with the animal while in our Rescue.  We do not guarantee this determination.

Story
SE Thor's Hammer, R71B, L75002Hi. I’m Thor. I’m not quite the god of thunder that I’m named after, in fact I’m a sweet and submissive boy. I love walks and think they're awesome! I might secretly love people too, but I'm a little shy at first but curious. I like to come to people when I'm ready and enjoy getting pets. I love having my own space in the house, and as long as I have a refuge and squeaky stuffy toys, I tolerate a lot of activity going on in the house. I get along with dogs the best, calm children are my next favorite, then adults. Anyone noisy or fast, I'll most likely choose to go up to last. I would rather not be kenneled and be an only dog. I really look to other dogs for reassurance and do fine as long as I have a dog buddy to hang with. I also really don't like stairs and so far, no amount of bribery and FOMO has tempted me enough to give them a go. My foster mom will continue to encourage me to give them a try. My new foster mom also says that I have opened up so much in just the two weeks that she's been with me and that it will be amazing to see how much braver I will get once I'm with my forever family. Could you be that forever family?  To see other hounds currently in our care please visit the Hounds in Our Care page on our website.

Loyal Ark Asa R 112D, L 75414Hi I'm Ahimsa! I love squeaky toys, walks, and running in my foster people's fenced backyard. I am very friendly. I'm also pretty chill, but like to get the wiggles out at times! I get along with everyone I've met so far. I can be shy at first, but I quickly adapt to new situations. My foster mom says I'm such a sweet girl and that will melt your heart. I have a tendency to let my tongue flop out. Usually when I'm sleeping, but sometimes just for fun.  I would rather not be left alone. I prefer to be around my humans and don't like when they leave me alone in a room. However, when they do leave me home alone, I am quiet in my crate. I need some basic obedience, but I am learning and doing very well overall. I also walk very calmly on lead. I'm currently living with a cat and 7 year old and my foster mom says I'm doing great. Personality Traits:  laid back, social, cuddly, and playful.  I hope to meet my forever people soon!  To see other hounds currently in our care please visit the Hounds in Our Care page on our website.
