Story
Barnie is a fun, playful guy that does not always understand how large, bulky, and heavy he is. He plays well with other dogs and is friendly, but not with toys or food. He does have resource guarding and needs supervision and more training for this. He loves going on walks, hiking or hanging out watching TV on the sofa. He is about 2-3 years old. ##962990##

Story
Chandra’s foster family has this to say about her: “Chandra is smart and loves every person and every dog she comes across.” She loves attention and “will definitely make you feel very loved,” “wants to be wherever her person is,” and “gives the best side-eye and head tilts!” Chandra loves to play tug, loves her soccer ball (challenge her to a game, she'll probably beat you!), loves slides, and really loves peanut butter and ice cubes. She waits when told to wait, will let you know when she has to potty, and knows stay, sit, and down. She also knows that “time out” means she needs to take a moment to chill. Chandra is toy motivated but also has her favorite treats. Since she is young and loves other dogs so much, she can react to other dogs and sometimes jump. She is ready to play! Chandra would do well with a brother or sister at home to get some of her excitement out. Chandra’s mom, Charlotte, landed in the shelter in late May 2023 as a stray. Just a few days later, on 5/31/23, Chandra and her littermates were born. We know Chandra’s mom is about 50 lbs., and we’re not sure who dad is, but we assume Chandra will be a medium-sized adult dog. Chandra has been thriving in her foster home, and we know she’ll do the same in her forever home with you. Please fill out an application today!March 4, 2024, 5:25 pm

Story
No one knows you like your foster mom, and here’s what Rocko’s has to say about him: “Rocko is my EASIEST foster yet!!! [He is] truly an easy dog for someone looking for a companion. He genuinely likes people and dogs, is submissive to our Alpha female dog, and is not overly excited to engage. He is a people pleaser who rarely barks. Rocko likes to play with toys, especially tug o’ war, and he loves giving kisses.” Rocko also is housetrained, crate trained, adept at using a doggie door, and knows how to sit, lay down, and shake. His foster mom reports that Rocko is a “go with the flow” guy who loves to hang out and adapts easily to new situations, people, and dogs. What breed is Rocko you ask? We wondered too! The results are in, drumroll please... Rocko's DNA results show he is 48.7% American Bulldog, 24% American Bully, 18.2% Bulldog and 9.1% SUPERmut! Rocko does well with both cats and dogs that are similar in size to him, though he hasn’t met any small dogs yet. He’s 57 lbs., about 8 years old, and a fantastic walker. In addition to high praise from his foster mom, our lead trainer, Carlo, wants everyone to know that “Rocko is an awesome pup!” Are you ready to give Rocko the forever home he’s been waiting for in exchange for many, many free kisses?

Story
Varsity is a 5-year-old, 67 lb. Bulldog mix. He is loving, protective, and playful! Like his name suggests, Varsity is a professional ball player. He loves to practice kicking and dribbling his ball in big, grassy yards. He can go for short leash walks and is very affectionate!Due to Varsity’s sports career, he has developed arthritis in his hind legs. Varsity is not able to go on long or steep hikes, but he still loves trotting around his yard. He does not pay any mind to rabbits or squirrels because he has his head in the ball game! Varsity is a couch potato and loves to fall asleep on the couch with his human.If you are looking for a loving and protective companion, Varsity is the dog for you!'I always say that Varsity is a diamond in the rough! Beneath his droopy face is a goofy little guy who loves to play! I earned his love by sneaking him some kibble now and again (don't tell the boss!), and now he can't keep his tippy taps under control! When he's not doing his tippy taps or scarfing down food, he loves to sleep and be pet. He could really use a few humans to call his own!' - Kathie, volunteer at The Red Dog HouseMarch 4, 2024, 5:25 pm

Story
This is Charlotte! Charlotte is a two-year old cutie patootie who weighs about 45 pounds and loves playing with her toys, laying in the sun, looking out the window, going for walks and just being around her people. She's housetrained, knows how to use the doggy door and has very quickly learned commands like place, sit, stay and down. There are no other dogs in her foster house but whenever she hears a dog bark on TV she jumps up from her favorite nap spot and runs to the television to watch! We think she might like a house with lots of activity and possibly other dogs. If you're interested in meeting Charlotte and welcoming her into your family, please visit thelittlereddog.org and apply today!March 4, 2024, 5:25 pm

Story
Starting with his underbite, adding his goofy morning happy dance, and finally seeing how he sleeps with his tongue out, this 3.5-year-old, 73 pound hunky guy will keep you laughing all day. He loves to hang with and 'help' you as you go about your day. Gleason is looking for an experienced human who can maintain proper structure and boundaries in the home. He's an incredibly good boy when he respects his humans, but if he senses a lack of control, he will push his boundaries. He does well with other dogs as long as he gets a slow, proper introduction. Overall, Gleason is calm and easy-going, totally content to snooze when you are busy, will happily jump in the car, and walks well on leash. Are you giddy for Gleason? We are!March 4, 2024, 5:25 pm

Story
Hi, I'm Sloan! I am about 6.5 years old and 65 lbs., and I’m told I’m such a special guy because I have a fantastic attitude about life, despite my tough start. Before being rescued, it was discovered I had been shot, leaving me blind in one eye. Don’t worry; this doesn't stop me from enjoying life to the fullest! I was also found with stab wounds and was extremely underweight. Despite a hard start, I have come a long way and I am healthy and happy now and looking for my furever home where I can love my people as much as they love me. Everyone says I really deserve that! One thing to know about me is that I LOVE water! I love to play but I do play a little rough, so a home with kids over 12 would be best. I enjoy other dogs if they are calm and respect my space. My dream home would be with a family who is active and likes to take walks, play ball with me, take me swimming or on a hike. Oh, and no cats, please! I can be vocal, but it's because I really like to hear myself talk. If you think I sound like a good fit for your family, please fill out an adoption application today!March 4, 2024, 5:25 pm

Story
This girl was in bad shape before we rescued her; she was saved off the streets, but she is looking much better now. Bougee looks like a big ol’ Bulldog in photos, but she's actually one of the tiniest Bulldogs you've ever seen! She's a compact 34 pounds and about 5 years old. This girl is guaranteed to make you laugh every day, but she has the personality of a typical Bulldog--she's extremely stubborn and needs a strong pack leader to set clear boundaries in her life to thrive. She's playful but doesn't like to play with tennis balls or small balls; nope, she is crazy about a soccer ball or a football. She has a very high prey drive when out on walks, however she's great with cats inside the house in a calm environment. She would do best in a home without kids. After a short walk, she's ready to eat and then nap hard! She loves to nap with her tongue hanging out, it's super cute.March 4, 2024, 5:25 pm
