Story
Meet MinašŸ©· Mina came to Korean city shelter by herself. In contrast to her tough and strong appearance, she is timid and mild-tempered, but maybe because of her large sized body, she has been waiting for her family for a long time. She may have a lot to learn but she deserves to be loved!! We are waiting for her family who can wait and give so much love to her who is waiting for a family for so long. * She likes people and wary of them at the same time. She gets scared easily and is a shy girl. Can get scared of a sudden touch but doesnā€™t avoid soft touches and stays calm. Secretly likes human touches.šŸ˜Š *Mina needs to be cared in a clean environment but with Centerā€™s muddy and dirt ground touching her legs, her skin discoloration is not improving. *Likes to dig the dirt!ā¤ļø *Gets along well with other doggy friends. She always hangs out with them and accepts other pups nibbling her.šŸ¶ *Can eat food without being picky or complaint, and absolutely loves her treats.šŸ  * Because she's scared, she barks when strangers come. But she has never shown any aggressive behavior! Just a scared girl.

Story
Hi! My name is Ace and this is my story. . . I was found alone, wandering the streets of NY. I was hungry, a little scared, and had an embedded collar around my neck. A good samaritan picked me up and took me to the NY shelter. I was friendly with the staff and showed no reactivity to other dogs. Due to no fault of my own (well, maybe a little bit because I was excitable and got a little mouthy when I played),Ā  so I was adopted and returned. To my surprise, I was saved once again! A Rescue stepped up and found me a temporary home. I am very happy here. My foster mom says I exemplify resilience and a zest for life! With marks still visible in my skin, I enjoy life to its fullest! I love to eat, play, and cuddle with my foster mom.Ā  Now that I feel secure, my foster mom tells me I am a super chill and VERY well trained.Ā  I worked hard on learning my basic manners and now my foster mom doesn't have to say "No Ace" a lot.Ā Ā  She mostly says "Good boy Ace" now.Ā  I have been enthusiastically practicing with my foster mom and her trainer and I have proven to be an excellent student. I still get a little excited when I meet new dogs, but quickly settle down, I just want to play. Ā  Now I need a new foster home because my foster doggie siblings are showing signs of jealousy.Ā  To avoid me getting hurt my foster mom, thinks I would be safer in a new foster home.Ā  She is so sad and tells me I did nothing wrong. I am estimated to be about 3 1/2 years old. I am healthy, happy, and full of energy! I am also housebroken and crate-trained. Ā  I have come so far and am looking for a home or foster where I can be loved and continue to grow and learn.Ā  I would do well with another doggie sister or brother and I like cats too.Ā  But I would be happy as your only dog as well! I am flexible!Ā  If you are that person, please apply to adopt me at www.peace4paws.org.Ā  Please fill out the application on a laptop or computerIf you have specific adoption or foster questions, please email: judy.atchison@yahoo.com THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN RESCUING A DOG!

Story
Meet Molly, the definition boundless affection. Despite her tender age of 1-2 years, Molly has proven herself to be an extraordinary mother, pouring her heart and soul into nurturing her five puppies. Molly was rescued from a horrific hoarding situation in Kentucky, where she was found severely emaciated, yet still stedfast on keeping her babies alive and healthy. The home owner admitted that he always fed her last, or sometimes not at all. Molly was a mere 34 pounds when we intervened, bearing the stressĀ of motherhood on her slender frame. But now as her puppies have flown the nest, Molly is blossoming into her true self, radiant and full of life once more. With a heart as vast as the heavens above, Molly greets each day with a wagging tail and a smile that could melt the coldest of hearts. Her gentle nature is as comforting as a warm embrace, and she delights in showering those around her with endless love and affection. Cuddles, relaxation, and tender moments of connection are Molly's greatest joys, and she eagerly awaits the chance to bask in the warmth of a loving home. Despite her challenging past, Molly's spirit remains unbroken, her resilience shining through in every wag of her tail. She is the truest form of a good girl, with a temperament as gentle as a summer breeze. She gets along famously with other dogs, her playful spirit shining bright. While Molly hasn't yet had the pleasure of meeting children, her nurturing instincts suggest she would be a natural fit for a loving family. As Molly prepares to embark on the next chapter of her journey, she does so with a heart full of hope and anticipation. Spayed and up to date on vaccines, she is ready to embrace the love and security of a forever home. If you're ready to experience the boundless joy of companionship and the unwavering loyalty of a furry friend, look no further than Molly. Visit www.peace4paws.org to apply today from your laptop or computer, and consider giving Molly the life she was destined for - she will be eternally grateful and you will only wish you found each other sooner.If you have specific adoption or foster questions, please email: judy.atchison@yahoo.com THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN RESCUING A DOG!
