Look up "good boy" in the dictionary, and you're sure to find a picture of Randy! This playful pup is a trusty companion while you're working from home. He'll curl up and nap when you're busy, but he'll gladly play a game of tug-o-war with you during your 10-15 minute breaks. He's completely potty trained and is great at knowing which toys he can chew and which can't - this means he won't leave any surprises during any conference calls. During the weekends, he loves to chase tennis balls, go on walks and chew on his plush toys. But don't worry - if you need a calm night in, he'll happily curl up with you on the couch while watching TV. Randy is a curious creature who remains a bit cautious around new people and dogs. But he warms up after a few minutes and is very gentle and friendly. We can see him doing quite well in a house with kids, but he'll be great in any home that will give him the love he deserves. His foster parents have described him as "one of the easiest fosters we've ever had. Help us find his fur-ever home!

Meet Otter! He's an active and energetic dog who loves to play and have fun. Otter's favorite activities include tug of war, showing plush toys who is boss, and spending time with his true love (a kong filled with peanut butter). Otter's fully housebroken, and when he needs to go out, he'll start pacing by the door to let you know. He's well-behaved on a leash and quick to do his business during walks. Otter is truly worth the wait, because he is a loving and playful companion. He will make a great addition to any active household looking for a fun-loving companion.

Story
Sally (FKA Pippen) is a dog with a personality as big as her jowls! Everyone who meets Sally is instantly drawn to her, and she is quite the celebrity at the vet and amongst dog sitters who all rave that she is their favorite dog to watch. At first glance, Sally may seem a bit serious, but she is a bit of a goofball behind all those wrinkles. Sally has numerous upside-down sleeping positions, which, to the delight of humans, results in her giant jowls sagging. She will also greet you when you enter the room with a sneeze of excitement. Sally is typically low-energy but occasionally surprises you with zoomies! Just like people, dogs have complex and multifaceted personalities. Sally loves people but has some requirements about how she engages with them. Sally prefers women over men, and needs an adult-only home. She has some fear-based anxiety (I mean, same) which results in reactivity around dogs and small children. Sally also doesn't enjoy people getting in her face or holding eye contact for long periods (again, not sure I'm writing this bio about Sally or myself). Sally was adopted from ALIVE Rescue about 4.5 years ago as a puppy and has since been in a loving and doting home. Her family's home situation has changed as they've started a family, and unfortunately, Sally needs a new home that she can thrive in. Sally's ideal home is an adult-only, single-dog home with dog-savvy owners. Sally is looking for humans who are calm, patient, and understanding. While Sally has some complexities, she has a lot of love to give. We know the right home is out there for the next chapter of Sally's story.

Story
Philly is a young pittie-mix with a heart of gold, a winning smile, and showstopping eyes. Also, does it look like she is wearing cowboy chaps? I digress... Philly is, in many ways, your typical pittie! She loves to play, snuggle, and is as sweet as can be. She likes the companionship of other dogs but likes to play hard, so if you have another dog, they should be up for some WrestleMania! Philly is a great indoor dog and would be well-suited for an apartment, but wouldn't say no to a house either ;) Philly is quiet and calm indoors. When Philly gets outside, she becomes more energetic and excited. Philly is working on her leash manners, but she is a strong gal, and her adopter will need to continue to work on her pulling while on a leash. Philly is almost entirely potty-trained and crate-trained (huzzah!) She is still young and is working on refining some of her manners (mouthiness + leash pulling specifically). Until Philly understands her size and strength better, she will likely do best in an adult-only home for now.

Story
Bubba Pi is playful, resilient and social. He LOVES other dogs and has no idea he is missing a front leg. Some of his favorites include squeaky toys, rubber toys, being outside, walks, other dogs, and people. Having a tripod pup requires some special care. He would do best in a home that does not have stairs that he must navigate. He'd do great in an elevator building. There may be future medical/therapy needs to help maintain his single front leg. Bubba's foster home says - This little guy is one of a kind. He is smart, sweet, and can be a little spicy when he wants to be. He doesn't let his disability slow him down in the least and trusts and loves everyone he meets. He snores like an old man, has the most adorable demeanor, and makes me smile everyday. Ideally he would land in a home where there is a lot of activity and where he has the opportunity to possibly become a therapy dog for veterans or the disabled. He is very social and it would be great to put his social skills to good use. He just lights up in social situations and people can't help but smile when they see him hopping along so happily. If you're interested in exploring adopting this happy go lucky pup, please complete an adoption application.
