Male, 4 years old, 78lbs**This is a courtesy post for a local rehoming. Any applications received will be forwarded to the current owners who are looking to rehome the dog. The current owners will reach out to the applicants directly. RDR is not involved in the rehoming process.**   Approximate Age: ~4 years old   Approximate Weight/Size:    Large   Good with: Dogs   Not tested with: Cats, Kids   Hi, I'm Onyx! I'm a big dog full of love and youth. If you're seeking a loyal companion who is always up for an adventure, I'm the dog for you. I'm full of energy and ready to be a part of you're family!   I love people and other dogs but, due to my size, would do best in a home without younger children or small dogs. I have basic training: I walk well on a leash and I'm crate trained. I'm fully vaccinated, neutered, and healthy other than a paw condition called pododermatitis: my paws can become a little inflamed and are treated with wipes or foam twice a day. But that doesn't stop me!   I'm ready to bring joy and laughter to you and you're family. I can't wait to share all the love I've got to give!   Adoption Application: http://bit.ly/adoptrd r My adoption fee includes: Spay/Neuter Surgery (unless I'm too to young!) Overall wellness exam Current on all core vaccines (including DHPP & rabies) Microchip Current on flea & tick and heartworm preventatives   Interested in adopting a rescue dog?

Story
Please contact Courtney Nobles (courtneyn@luckydoganimalrescue.org) for more information about this pet.young girl ready to play! KIMMIE NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!!   Name:    Kimmie          Best Guess for Breed:    Pit bull terrier mix   Best Guess for Age:  1 year as of 12/23          SEX:    Female   Estimated Weight:  40 lbs    Currently Living at:   DC area foster home. Kimmie is Looking For: Her forever home! This sweet girl is eager to have her own humans for long sniffy walks and romps in the park and all the adventures they can dream up. Trips to the beach, the mountains, Starbucks for pup cups - yes, please! Along the way, she'd like to make lots of pup and people pals. Most of all, though, she wants to know she's safe and loved for all her days, and to have a family upon whom to bestow all the adoring gazes and tail wags she's been saving up. What do you say? Is Kimmie the companion you see by your side?   What shelter staff say about her: Kimmie is awesome. She loves going to playgroup with other dogs and is fearless - she likes rough and tumble play, and happily wrestles with a 71-pound dog at the shelter! But she's got an awesome balance - she's not all play all the time. She also loves pets and cuddles and quiet time.  What My Foster Says About Me: While Kimmie may be shy to warm up you, she absolutely loves her dog friends - no matter how big or small they are! While it's not required, she would probably love to go to a home with another playful dog or a home that can let her frequently socialize with others dogs. She is a pretty chill girl indoors, but when she is out playing, she shows her fun and silly side. She loves to play tug-of-war, fetch, and just wrestling with friends. She ignores her feline roommates and lives with a 9-year-old kid that she loves! She sleeps through the night and would prefer to see you when she is in the crate. Kimmie has done great with leash walking and we are still working on housebreaking but she is absolutely getting the hand of it!   Lucky Dog cannot guarantee any dog is housebroken.  All of our dogs are working on their crate training.  TO ADOPT:    Kimmie's adoption fee is $460, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter.  If you are interested in adopting, please complete the Adoption Questionnaire online at bit.ly/adoptaluckydog. Lucky Dog Animal Rescue does our best to provide accurate information about the dogs we have for adoption. That said, we cannot make any guarantees about age, breed or temperament.   Thank you for contacting Lucky Dog Animal Rescue and helping to save a life! Please visit us online at        www.luckydoganimalrescue.org       .

See this cutie loving her foster:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxurMOilB5kAnd see those other cute videos of sweet Noel! https://youtube.com/shorts/7lhj0hHNgYw https://youtube.com/shorts/JKBmbbJ62gs https://youtu.be/8vb8qP7VQqU   https://youtube.com/shorts/-ZBi6Qg4lHY    Gets Along With:  Noel does well with other dogs and must go to a home with a confident and welcoming resident dog.  No cats please!   Currently Living at:  DC area foster   Special adoption considerations:  Noel is shy would do best in a home with another dog!  She isn't recommended for homes with kids under 12 because of her shyness.   Noel's Story:  Noel is looking for a very special home that will share all the love she has in her heart.  Her journey has been long, will you be the one to complete this love story?  When she first came to Lucky Dog in December 2020, she was heavily pregnant. She was so scared of humans that it was pretty clear someone had mistreated her terribly.  In her maternity foster, she had her puppies, and was happy to see they all went off to their forever homes.  Noel then went to a foster home with several other dogs. Now that she no longer had puppies to tend to, her foster could start helping her build her trust with humans. Over time, she slowly developed a familiarity with her human foster; they bonded during long walks. It took months, but Noel started asking for pets and napping on the couch with her foster. More quickly, she bonded with the other dogs in her foster home. She’d wake up in the morning, eager to leap out of her crate and start playing with her doggie siblings. She became accustomed to her foster home - content even - and time passed.    This foster family was unable to continue being her foster, so Noel moved to a new foster in May of 2023. Her new fosters instantly fell in love with her, but they realized Noel now had to start developing trust all over again.  She was in a new home. New people. She didn’t know if she could trust them. She tried her best to make herself invisible, to avoid anything that could result in negative experiences. Her fosters gave her space - and gave her so many reasons to trust them. She finally came out of her crate, but then she settled onto a dog bed, very still. She didn’t dare ask for anything. She didn’t ask to go potty - she held it for more than a day, until her foster convinced her to go outside. She didn’t ask for food. She showed impeccable house manners - she didn’t touch anything. She was simply trying her best to not be seen.    But - she has a wonderful doggie foster brother. He showed her that the people in the home were safe.   She has been watching him and from him, learning that there is love and safety in that home. She has been watching him get snuggles from the humans - and her fosters saw her watch that with such yearning, such uncertainty. They celebrated the day she came to them and asked to be petted - after just three weeks in the home, instead of the months she needed in the previous home! She is still uncertain but the trust builds by the day.    Noel once again is making friends with her fosters during long walks. Her fosters celebrate every walk she goes on where she actually relaxes and sniffs. She’s still uncertain of other dogs and people, but is quickly learning to follow her fosters’ lead and continue walking around the neighborhood, joyfully sniffing all the smells.    One very special thing about Noel - one thing that always reaches that spark in her - is her complete love for puppies. In her current foster home, her fosters saw Noel progressively build confidence with her adult dog foster brother and start to share moments of play. The moment a foster puppy arrived, though, Noel instantly transformed into a happy-go-lucky, joyful, loving pup who constantly played with the puppy and happily accepted all its floppy, awkward affections.    Noel has come such a long way in trusting humans, and is eager to have her own now. She is looking for a forever home that’s ready to put her heart at ease.  She needs an angel who understands that a traumatized dog needs time to build trust. Who understands that no matter how much love grows in the previous (foster) home, it will take time to grow again in the forever home. Who understands that once the bond has been built, once trust has been gained, they will be the lucky recipients of all the love Noel has to offer. Her current fosters say she is so sweet and they see the lovely dog she will be with the right patient, loving family.   This dog who had such a traumatic start deserves her soft landing, her happy ending. If you can help give her the loving home she dreams about, either by reaching out to the adoption coordinator listed here to discuss potential adoption or by passing Noel’s story along to others—thank you!  Lucky Dog cannot guarantee any dog is housebroken.  All of our dogs are working on their crate training.  TO ADOPT:  The adoption fee for Noel is $460,  which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter.  If you are interested in adopting, please complete the Adoption Questionnaire online at  bit.ly/adoptaluckydog.   Lucky Dog Animal Rescue does our best to provide accurate information about the dogs we have for adoption.

Story
Male, approx. 1 year old, 49 lbs Personality: playful, goofy/funny, affectionate, eager-to-please, adventurous, easygoing, loyal, good running partner, outgoing, smart, snuggler, brave, and adaptable. Are you looking for a smart, sweet, and affectionate boy in one? Meet Aaron, a lovable, super friendly dog who welcomes all humans and dogs! He loves to say hello and lean in for pets or kisses, but he might be a little too enthusiastic for baby humans just yet. For shyer puppy friends, Aaron knows to take a step back and walk alongside them instead of playing hard. This smart boy learned the word "sit" in one session and can do it anywhere. He also hasn't had any accidents in the house. Aaron is very eager to please, which has helped with his training. During play time, he might get his hands on human things, but he can be redirected with a dog toy. Aaron has typical puppy energy and thrives with long walks and time to play with food puzzles, licky mats and snuffle mats. That said, Aaron is crated overnight and can stay there alone or through a good chunk of the workday as he waits for his foster humans to close their laptops. Aaron does well with his resident dog sister and respects her boundaries.
