Story
Hi, I'm Malcolm, but my foster family calls me Mally or Maui. I have been with them for about a month after my foster mom found me in a very overcrowded and underfunded EKY shelter. I had severe kennel cough and a nasty ear infection and needed some groceries, but I am much healthier and happier now! I weigh about 62 pounds and am lower to the ground than it appears in photos. The vet said I was likely 7-8 years old, but I am a lively old dude. I really like to take short little zoomy runs around the yard and play with other dogs, but then I want to lay on the couch for a while. I really like little kids and can hug them roughly, but I live with a 2-year-old and a 7-year-old and have only knocked the smaller one over once. I am very calm in the house unless I have a dog friend who wants to play. Like most older men, I can vocalize my wants and needs but quiet down when someone tells me to. If you want, I will howl and sing when you say what a good boy I am. I also can't hear super well, and my foster mom is curious if it is selective or not.... I had a terrible ear infection when I came to her. I really like to go for walks and smell all the smells, but my favorite thing is putting my entire large self in your lap. I am potty trained and will let you know when I need to go outside. I tolerate baths and crates and can sit, lay down, and shake. I like other dogs and seem interested in cats. Malcolm is neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated, and he recently had a dental cleaning and a few broken teeth extracted. If you're interested in fostering or adopting, please apply at savedbyfate.org and we'll be in touch ASAP! Malcolm's adoption fee has been generously SPONSORED! A meet with any approved adopter's current pets would be required before starting the 2-week adoption trial period.

Story
Otis is 100% house trained. Not at all destructive. Knows several verbal commands: sit, lay down, come, "out"-of-the-_____ (whatever room). Loves to fetch toys. Is so easy to please with a short simple car ride. Lives for car rides actually, even if he doesn't get out, he is a good errand buddy. Very well behaved in the car when i run into the gas station. Loves going into dog friendly stores, and is well behaved in stores such as pet stores and Lowes, Tractor&Supply type stores. He is a great communicator. Adapts to routines and follows them perfectly. He gets anxious/upset when on leash in the outdoors when encountering strangers or moving vehicles close by.

Story
Mage is a small but mighty American Bully girl who is incredibly affectionate. The only thing she loves more than snuggling and giving kisses is playing ball! And while it’s no surprise that Mage is one gorgeous girl, she does have a few asks of her future adoptive home. Mage needs a home with no other animals, a securely fenced in yard, and an adopter who will treat her like their baby! One of her foster parents works from home and Mage really enjoys the company. Mage is estimated to be about 3 years old and weighed 56 pounds at her last vet appointment. She is crate trained, walks on a leash well for adults (too strong for children handlers), and has been great with the 8 and 1 year old kids in her foster home. If you’re interested in adopting Mage, please submit an application through our website at www.Lexpitcrew.org. Her adoption fee is fully sponsored ($0)! Can’t adopt right now? Consider donating an item from her Amazon wish list! These items will not only help her in her foster home, but will follow her to her adoptive home to make her transition as smooth as possible. You can find her wish list here: https://www.amazon.com/registries/gl/guest-view/2VD62G8PRA6BQ

Story
Meet Kane! This sweet boy is three years old (DOB 10/31/2019), and is believed to be an American Bulldog/American Staffordshire terrier mix. Kane is such a laid back gentle giant. All he wants to do is chill, sleep, and repeat. He’s become such a relaxed guy who just likes hanging out. When he first came to rescue, he was a bit of a wild child. But since decompressing from shelter life, he has shown that all he wants is to be loved by his people, and to catch some sunshine here and there. Honestly, who can blame him? Kane is fully vetted, meaning he’s already up to date on vaccines, neutered, microchipped, and kept on monthly prevention. He is crate and house trained (although he does require a steel crate). And loves absolutely everyone he meets. He would do best in a home with kids over 12, as he is a big, strong boy who doesn’t quite understand how big he is. He’s great with other dogs, but does need a home without cats. This boy is a lounger, so a fenced in yard is preferred, but is not a deal breaker. He just likes to lay outside in the sun on the patio. Since being in his foster home, Kane has come SUCH a long way with his training! He now knows sit, paw, watch me, stay, come, and has greatly improved his leash manners. And if this list of commands aren’t enough, he’s INCREDIBLY treat motivated, so teaching him more is a breeze! When applying keep in mind that a home PVA will be verified, references will be called, vet checks will be done, all dogs in home MUST be spayed/neutered, UTD on vaccines, etc., and a home visit will be conducted. Applicants will be chosen in Kane’s best interest. It will not be on a first come first serve basis. Applicants for Kane MUST have breed experience and dog savvy. Interested in making Kane part of your forever family? You can apply to adopt through our website at www.lexpitcrew.org/adopt! His adoption fee is $175. You can also support Kane through his Amazon wish list! Items from his wish list will not only help him continue to thrive in his foster home, but will follow him to his forever home to ensure his transition is as smooth as possible. You can find his wish list here: https://www.amazon.com/registries/gl/guest-view/292BJ7DA9CVLE
