We found him at the River Rouge Shelter waiting for his second chance. Approximate age / Weight: 3 years old and 85 lbs. Personality: Cobi is just a big lug who wants to be near his humans. He enjoys a good snuggle and nap as much as he likes some sunny patio time. Cobi thrives on routine and adapted to living in his foster home easily. Cobi needs space and patience when introduced to new folks, particularly men. He just needs to know that a guy is trustworthy. He absolutely adores his foster dad. Cobi is up for car rides and doesn’t mind trips to the vet. Loves treats and is learning the basics in foster care. Doesn't pull on leash but zig-zags a bit to get to sniffs. New Home: Cobi could fit into many home situations. He really just wants someone to love.

Story
Good With Kids: Did well with kids he's met. Suggest older kids. Good With Other Dogs: Yes, not a big fan of high energy dogs Good With Cats: Unknown. Uninterested in squirrels so might like cats. Housetrained: Yes Crate Trained: Yes Walks Nicely On A Leash: Yes when wearing harness. Knows Basic Commands: Mostly Energy Level (Couch Potato, Moderate or High): Moderate Special Needs: Ear cleansing to avoid infections. Current getting every other week nail trims to shorten the quicks to obtain better standard nail length. Physical Fence: Ideal but would likely do well on tie-out or walks. Favorite Activity: Nap on the couch with favorite blanket and neck rubs. Arrival story: Junior was found on the streets of Detroit by a good Samaritan who provided a safe place and vet care prior to arriving at Waggin' Tails. Approximate age / Weight: 8ish yrs old and 55 lbs. Personality: Junior is super sweet, loving and is just happy to be by your side. He loves destroying stuffed toys, chewing on Benebones, and noshin' on stuffed Kongs or lick mats. Our boy is super super food motivated and his tail rarely stops wagging. He enjoys a romp in the yard, a walk around the block, a car ride, and most of all a nap on the couch with his favorite blanket. He’ll curl up next to you and loves tushy and neck rubs best. Junior is house trained and crate trained, is content being on his own for periods of time, is a champ at the vet, and is getting better at his routine ear washes and nail trims – he never hated them, just doesn’t want to sit still for them. Nicknames: Junie, June Bug, Uncle June, the list could go on. You call, he comes. Smart boy is learning the basic queues (like sit) and has excellent recall, doing well keeping eyes on his handler in one-on-one training class, not barking at other dogs on leash. Junior takes treats quickly so little kids may not be best match to live day-to-day but he's met younger kids and been great with them. Forever Home: Junior is filled with tons of love to give his next family and will quickly become your best bud! While pretty low maintenance and not really up for big adventures he sure does enjoy a car ride and walks and would love nothing more than to be your partner in crime!

Story
HELLO! My name is Butters though my foster mom loves to call me Butt Butt. Do you want to play fetch? I love to show off by running around outside, chasing toys but then come inside for cuddle time and watch TV. Do you like paw patrol? I do! My foster mom taught me how to sit, shake, come when called, learning the Find-it game, and we are working to redirect my enthusiasm when greeting new people or trying to get their attention I LOVE meeting new people! I’m affectionate from the get-go. I’m so smart, too! Treat motivated, and I take those treats gently, curious, and want to learn new things. I’m good at the vet’s office, being handled, and on car rides. Though I should be safely secured so I don’t try to take the wheel. While I live in a foster home with two other dogs, I would prefer to have humans all to myself. A lot of dogs don't like my enthusiasm. Forever Home: I’m a wee pocket pitty just lookin’ for a person/couple that wants a bestie to have fun and cuddles with. I’d like to be able to sleep in bed with you as I love curling right up against my people to sleep. I’m moving into my teenage phase so I do need guidance and additional training to help me become the amazing companion I’m meant to be. I’ve got so much love to give to humans who adopt me.

Story
🌷Meadow is a perky little low-rider who will prance her way right into your heart! 💜 She was rescued from the shelter TWICE and is now looking for her forever home. She has a lot of love to give and will shower you with it every day for saving her. Meadow loves to be outside but also likes to cuddle on the couch! She is crate and potty trained. She will need a slow intro to other dogs but does well after that. She’s working on getting used to cats. We think she would be fine with older kids. She is about 2 years old and 37 pounds. She’s good on a leash and loves toys. Please give Meadow her forever home and enjoy her hugs and kisses! 🥰

Story
💘 Meet Woogie! 💘 We’ve got another pretty girl that broke off the chain life ⛓️‍💥 thanks to Dog Aide! She is searching for her forever home! 🏡 She is a loving, snuggle bug who would love to be your fur-ever dog! 💗 she is 1 years old, 47lbs, spayed, UTD on shots. Woogie will need a quiet, calm home where she can get a lot of attention and continue to learn to trust her new family. A home with no children may be best, as she is still working through some triggers that on rare occasions activate her fight-or-flight response. Given her history, it takes Woogie a longer time to trust men and she will need patience and training if she transitions into a home with a man. With that said, once she warms up and trusts you, she will shower you with affection and snuggles. Woogie has now formed her closest bond with her current male foster parent, which gives us so much hope! 🥹❤️ Being an indoor dog is new for Woogie. She has learned that her favorite things to do are cuddle in bed, snuggle on the sofa, and go for very long walks 🦮 She has made progress with her leash and is learning to not pull. She loves playing chase with tennis balls and solving puzzle snack toys. She is still a pup and is learning how to play gently and will need some training. Her current foster parents work from home; she does well being quiet in her dog bed with her toys during Zoom calls and enjoys full access to her human friends throughout the day. She has only met another dog through a baby gate, however, she seems interested in other dogs while on walks and doesn’t bark at them. She would make a wonderful, loving addition to your home with her endless love to give and soulful eyes! 🥰🐾 If you think you’d be a good fit and are interested in giving Woogie the second chance she deserves, fill out our adoption app: underdogrescueranch.com/adopt

Bridgette

American Pit Bull Terrier Mixed Breed (Medium)

Not good with kids, Not good with cats, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Hey my name is Bridgette! I am a goofy, playful, and affectionate dog looking for an active owner who can offer lots of play time and quality one-on-one time. I am a well rounded dog who loves to have fun with toys, but also loves to chill and snuggle. I'm a fun-loving dog who loves to play chase, so a home with cats or young children wouldn't be a good fit for my exuberant personality. I could do well with doggie friend in my forever home, but new friends can be pretty exciting for me, so I would like to meet them at the shelter beforehand to make sure we are a good match.Foster Parent Comments: "Bridgette is the sweetest little gremlin. She is ready to go go go as soon as she wakes up in the morning but settles into a nice long morning nap after breakfast and some wrassling time. She absolutely loves playing tug with any toy, fetch (though we've had mixed results on her giving the ball back), zooming around the trees in the backyard, and loves to pretend she's in the WWE when she plays with her foster sister. She is eager to learn and has come so far in the year-ish she's been with me! We've been working on being calm when we pass other dogs who are barking from their yards and she's making great progress with the help of training treats and me being consistent on our walks. We found out last fall when she came up north with me that she loves playing in lakes and going on long hikes to smell ALL the smells. She's an adventurous eater, and we've determined bananas, bell peppers, broccoli, carrots, green beans, apples, and even brussel sprouts are yummy so long as they're cut into perfect bite sized pieces. She gives great gentle hugs, is always ready to give many many kisses, and loves to curl up on the couch or bed after a long day of shenanigans." Let Bridgette's bubbly personality float into your life! She will be a wonderful companion who will shower you with love, and bring so much joy and laughter into your life. With a little bit of time to settle in, Bridgette will surely blossom into your best friend! Bridgette is currently living in one of our wonderful foster homes. Adopting from foster is easy! Please email adoptions@hshv.org or call (734)662-5585 to arrange a meeting today!
