Story
My name is Petey!I’m 7 months old, extremely handsome, and potty trained. I am energetic and have a wonderful enthusiasm for walks, playing ball, especially my orange ones. I am learning my basic obedience and will sit like a gentleman and wait for you to open the door. I will need a home that is prepared to provide opportunities for enrichment and adequate exercise. I am a great traveler, so car rides are always a "sure let's go" from me. Due to my size older children would be a better match. I am very loving and my tail never stops wagging. I love people and do much better when someone is home, because I get lonely and need your cuddles. My foster mom brags about me all the time, so I must be pretty wonderful!DOB 9-5-23 71 poundsI'm waiting for a home to call my own. email webmaster@petrefuge.com to learn more about me or fill out an application at https://www.petrefuge.com/adoptPet Refuge was formed in 1978 to help with cats and dogs in need of homes.

Story
I'm Kane. I spent the majority of my life living outdoors chained up. I was under weight when I first arrived at the facility but I am now healthy and showing my full potential. I keep my kennel spotless. I know sit, lay down, and shake. I lay down right away on command. I am very smart! Leash walks will be best for me or a secure fence. I did not pass with cat testing, as I do have a small prey drive. I have however got along with every dog I have been tested with here. My favorite enrichment activity is frozen kongs with peanut butter and soft training treats inside. I'm really hoping to get adopted and live the rest of my life indoors.

Story
Polar - 1 Year 50 lbs. Polar's breed is just a guess! To me, he looks like Boxer or American Bulldog mix. He is sweet as pie and dog social! He has been house broken with a regular potty schedule but will have accidents inside if you forget to take him out. He sticks mostly to himself but I do see a playful side of him slowly coming out. Polar is Deaf and learning hand signals. He was found as a stray and luckily someone was able to get him into their garage. He is fantastic on a leash but will need either a fenced yard or to be leashed at all times since you can't get his attention by calling to him. He will wander off. Polar currently lives with 3 dogs. 2 are larger than him and a small pomeranian. He h as done well and listens to social cues from them. A struggle for him is that he can't hear but he doesnt know any different. This sometimes causes conflict with one of the foster dogs in the home who growls at him and he dosen't know it. He is sweet and doesn't mean to cause any trouble. Polar has met kids and is shy. He showed almost no interest in cats when tested. He needs no social pressure meet and greet and is a happy little guy once warmed up. Polar is learning to like his crate and we are working on enrichment for him to keep his body and mind occupied to set him up for success. He is going to make someone a really nice dog. He loves attention and he also is fantastic for baths! He closes his eyes and soaks up the attention. Applications for adoption are at www.trackingintheshadows.com.  Polar currently lives in Elkhart IN. **We do not accept electric/underground fences. All dogs & cats in the home must be spayed/neutered & up to date on core vaccines & preventatives in order for your application to be approved.** ##2052215##

Story
Hi, I'm Tubs, and I'm 3 years old! I am a super sweet, handsome fella! I love other dogs, but can play a bit rough, so if you have another dog in the home, they gotta keep up with me! I have a floating patella, meaning my kneecap doesn't always stay in place, but the vets say that surgery is not required as long as I stay at a healthy weight! I would do best in a home with children over the age of 8, due to my size and playfulness! I am housetrained and a food motivated boy! I hope you'll come meet my goofy self soon!Some quick facts about me: Cat FriendlyDog FriendlyKid Friendly (over the age of 8)HousetrainedGoofy, happy guy!Intake Date: 4/30/24Reason: Did not do well with a young child in the homeGive the shelter a call at (574) 267-3008 or email them at info@awlwarsaw.com if you have any questions about me!

Story
Just one look at this guy and you can't help but wonder why he was given the name Chicken? We do not have a clue. He is a senior guy looking for a home to spend out the later years of his life with all the comforts that a loving home will provide. Chicken still has a good amount of energy, but at the end of the day, he would simply prefer to curl up in your favorite chair, if you will let him, or a plush dog bed. He would do best with older children and a quieter lifestyle since that is what he had in his prior home. Come meet this guy and check out his big soulful eyes.
