Story
Sadie is a really sweet dog, well trained in some areas (sit, in your crate, go lie down, etc.); she is about 13 months old, we have had her for 8 months, and realize that with both of us getting into our 70s, we just do not have enough energy and time to devote to an active 1 year old dog, who will be 10 when we hit our 80s. We love her a lot, but realize that she needs to go to a younger owner(s), hopefully in a rural area or on a farm, where she run and romp to her heart's content. She loves to retrieve a tennis ball, will do it for hours, also walks/romps in fields or woods. She has been great at the local dog park, loves to wrestle, chase and be chased, and generally socializes very well with other dogs, although she is a bit skeptical of very small/yappy dogs. We do not want to get rid of Sadie, but know that it is best for her and best for us, and really want her to go to someone who can appreciate her and raise her into a satisfying and happy adulthood.

Dog Name: DalekBreed: mixSex: femaleAge: DOB 11/14/23Weight: 15 lbs Medical Needs: She will need to be fixed by 5/31/24. (This deadline is nonnegotiable, and is a condition of adoption.)Neuter appointment will be made through Grass Roots and is included in the adoption fee at one of the vets we use. To schedule, adopter will email us at grassrootsde@gmail.com to request an appointment at the location closest to them. Because he still needs to be fixed, adopters should live within 1 hour of Delaware and be willing to come back for the appointment. Add that to all of them please.

NoCat Friendly? YesKid Friendly: yes If yes, what's the youngest child you'd recommend they be placed with? Old enough to put up with a teething puppy Special traits that make your foster special or that we need to know about them? Dalek likes to be ahead of the curve!  She was the first in her litter to growl, sit like a big dog, walk and bark! She had also been the one and only to climb out of the puppy pen on her own.  She's the bravest and likely the smartest, and oh-so-sweet! Her mom was pulled from an Oklahoma shelter 2 days before she was due to be euthanized and had her ten puppies less than 2 weeks later.   Dalek has had LOTS of puppy and dog company since birth.   Fosters Location: Grasonville, MD Application can be found here: https://www.grrde.org/adoption-application (if you already have an approved application on file email GrassRootsDE@gmail.com and ask the app team to pull your app  ##1909395##

Little miss Stormageddon has been the runt of the litter- such a tiny pup needed a big name! She struggled to keep up with her siblings at first, and even had to be bottle fed for a few days, but she doesn't let anything hold her back!  Some of her siblings are nearly twice her size, but she tables them and plays like there's no size difference.   She's fearless and vocal and sweet as pie. She has one blue eye and one brown, giving her little wrinkled face just that little extra character. Her mom was pulled from an Oklahoma shelter 2 days before she was due to be euthanized and had her ten puppies less than 2 weeks later.   Stormageddon had LOTS of puppy and dog company since birth.   Fosters Location: Grasonville, MD Application can be found here: https://www.grrde.org/adoption-application (if you already have an approved application on file email GrassRootsDE@gmail.com and ask the app team to pull your app  ##1909397##

Story
Dog Name: Baked Beans Breed: Mix Breed Sex: M Age: 5 months Weight: 30lbs Medical Needs: Baked Beans’ neuter appointment will be 3/18 at BVSPCA on Georgetown. Keeping this appointment is a condition of his adoption. Adopter must live in Delaware or within a 1 hour drive of the appointment.  Housebroken: Work in progress as he's a puppy. He is leashed when in the house to give him less opportunity to have an accident, and we make sure to take him potty when he wakes up, after he plays, or after he eats- if he's kept on that routine he should pick it up soon! Crate trained: Yes and no. He is incredibly quiet in his crate for a puppy, both during the day and at night; however, he's liable to have an accident in there if he's really gotta go. He's done well with no messes the past few nights- but will need time to get it perfect! Good in the car: Yes. Was quiet and sat in the crate on his initial ride and was content to stare out the window.  Good on a leash: He's a pup so he's as good as a young guy can be. Has a tendency to zig zag and get under your feet but will learn with time. Energy level: PUPPY! Play hard, nap hard. Need a fenced in yard: No, as long as he'll get enough exercise in other ways. Dog Friendly: YesIf yes, does your foster need another dog in its adoptive homes? No, but he has been having a blast with my resident dogs in the very brief time since being introduced to them.  Cat Friendly? Yes. He's expressed playful interest in my kitty, but he's a puppy so could be taught to ignore kitty friends. Kid Friendly: Unknown as I don't have kids but he's just a baby so probably fine.If yes, what's the youngest child you'd recommend they be placed with? Any with supervision, he's still a puppy. Special traits that make your foster special or that we need to know about them?  Whether we're calling him Baked Beans , Green Bean, Red Beans & Rice, Beanie Baby, Bean Bean…this little guy is SO much fun. He is smart, he knows sit & has been loving doing doggy puzzles. Likes to sit in your lap, give smooches, and get scratches. He has beautiful puppy eyes and knows how to use them!! Even if he didn't have a leash on, you can tell he'd be his person’s shadow- he's always right there. He's got lots of personality and will be someone's precious little baby, I can already see it.  Foster’s location: Long Neck/Millsboro, DE  Application can be found here: https://petstablished.com/adoption_form/21170/generic (if you already have an approved application on file email GrassRootsDE@gmail.com and ask the app team to pull your app )  ##1971097##

Story
Dog Name: PistonBreed: Pit mixSex: MaleAge: 7/8 monthsWeight: 32 lbs Medical Needs: he has a broken knee that has healed, but will need to be on supplements(Dasuquin Advanced and Omegas) to help as he continues to grow. Housebroken: Yes.  Crate trained: Yes. Goes in perfectly with a treat. He will whine for a little at first but settles down soon.  Good in the car: Yes Good on a leash: Yes but he will need training. Typical puppy.  Energy level: he is still a puppy so he is very ACTIVE when he is awake.  Need a fenced in yard: No but he will need activity such as walking or hiking.  Dog Friendly: YesIf yes, does your foster need another dog in its adoptive homes? No Cat Friendly? Yes. He will chase if they run as he thinks it is a game but that is soon followed by a play bows.  Kid Friendly: UnknownIf yes, what's the youngest child you'd recommend they be placed with? He is a puppy that so he will need training not to be so mouthy. Children in the home 10+ might be best.  Special traits that make your foster special or that we need to know about them?   Piston is such a sweet boy. He loves everyone and would love to be everyone’s friend. He just wants to be involved with the family and is curious about everything. He loves to play tug, fetch and chew his bone- just keep an eye on him. He learns quickly and is very food motivated which will be great for training better manners (he just likes to jump up and give hugs and is a little mouthy). This little boy is so charming.  Fosters Location: Millsboro, DE Application can be found here: https://www.grrde.org/adoption-application (if you already have an approved application on file email GrassRootsDE@gmail.com and ask the app team to pull your app ##1846226##
