Story
I'm in a FOSTER HOME! If you want to meet me, you can start the process by emailing my foster parent at holstine.kyle@gmail.com to set up a time to virtually meet me! Ryylin is a sweet middle-aged girl who loves people (adults and children) and seeks to please them at every opportunity. While we're not sure of her past, she seems to have been given a good amount of training in her life. No matter the circumstance, she quickly responds to direction. In almost every situation she's obedient when given commands. She has all the basic commands like sit, down and stay. When we move from one level of the house to the next, she's been trained not to proceed until given the "come" command. As expected of a dog her age she is house-trained.Though she'd rather spend all her time with her human, she has no problem staying home alone for a full workday. No separation anxiety, no accidents, and no destruction. Ryylin is a moderate energy girl. She's content to lounge around all day and is a world champion cuddler. However, she also loves children and reciprocates their energy level in a variety of games and activities. She'll take as many walks as you'll give her but doesn't complain or beg if you come up a few short one day. She also accepts car rides if you have the time. If you want a dog that gives you unconditional love and is low maintenance, Ryylin is the dog for you. Come meet her, you'll be glad you did!To learn more about Ryylin or to schedule a meet and greet, contact holstine.kyle@gmail.com.

** I am currently being housed at our Oglethorpe St location. Come meet me at 71 Oglethorpe St NW, every day between 12pm-7pm. Please arrive no later than 6:30 p.m. to allow ample time to interact with adoptable dogs. Or visit humanerescuealliance.org/how-to-adopt to learn more. ** Peachy is keen! Yes, this gorgeous, lovely gal has this amazing way to charm everyone. She just gives these adorable puppy-dog eyes, and we all melt. She is so cute! Peachy was found tied up near a gas station. Poor miss! She was so happy when we saved her, and she had been a total love since she arrived. And she is so happy to get the medical care she so needed. Plus, food and treats and pettings! The only thing that is missing now is a great home for Peachy. She would love to be with folks that will take her for nice walks and give her warm beds. Meet this peachy-keen pooch today. She is wonderful!

She hasn't been a fan of meeting other dogs, because of this she would probably do better as the only dog in a home. Brook prefers to be the queen of her new castle, could you be the right fit for her? She is sweet and wiggly and adorable! Come meet her today!Check out Brook's video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=db4JWvlBXgI

Story
I'm in a FOSTER HOME! If you want to meet me, you can start the process by emailing my foster parent at carolchapman@yahoo.com to set up a time to meet me. Want to be friends? Nyle does! This playful boy wants to be friends with every human and dog he meets! If there is a cliché to describe Nyle, it's, "Boys will be boys!" All boy, all the time, but still a little bit of a diva, hiding his face under the pillows when the alarm goes off in the morning. Nyle is Mr. Personality: Falls off the couch at least once a day, manages to miss the fire hydrant when he pees, and is quite the squirrel chaser. Nyle is a vegetarian at heart- his favorite treats include coconut, peanut butter and yogurt. He is the opposite of a resource guarder, actually preferring to be pet while he eats. Nyle loves people and dogs. His favorite thing is romping around the yard roughhousing with another pup. If you wear him out a bit, he'll sleep the day away on the couch, laying on his back with his paws in the air. He's a lap-lander, always wanting a hug and a snuggle from his humans. Nyle clearly had no idea how to play with toys when he arrived, but he quickly learned how much fun he can have tossing and chewing his favorite stuffed duck and dinosaur. Nyle wants to be a good boy. He wants you to be happy with him-he is always chasing the next "Good Boy!" and will try to earn it. Nyle fun fact: He has a pentagon shaped patch of fur on his head. He's nicknamed "Major Nyle" in case any Pentagon workers are looking for a pup!

Story
If you want to meet me, start the process by emailing my foster parent at battags32@gmail.com to set up a time to virtually meet me.Oh my! Errol started the year off in rough shape. This innocent love muffin was found so skinny you could count his ribs. But thanks to a wonderful foster family, precious Errol is now recovering nicely and getting all the love and care he so craves. His foster parent reports that Errol has been the perfect little guy. After a short adjustment period, he settled right in and is showing his best behavior when left uncrated in the apartment alone. He loves to play but is also just as happy to occupy himself with a bone/toy or a nap - sleeping is one of his favorite hobbies ;-). Errol is also a very smart guy. He's already learning 'sit', 'lay down', 'wait', and 'off'. His fur is slowly starting to regrow on his face and we're all looking forward to seeing what kind of salt and pepper comes in on him. Errol has also done great with meeting other people, including older kids. If you'd like to learn more about this this sweet tempered and handsome fellow, please contact battags32@gmail.com. He's looking forward to it!For more information, or to meet me, contact battags32@gmail.com.
