Story
This nervous girl needs a very special home that is willing to work with her through her fear-based reactivity. We have seen how sweet and playful this girl can be and know she has so much potential, however, new people and things are overwhelming to Foggy and she needs someone who will be kind and patient while she adjusts to learning what life as a loved member of a family is like. Foggy is often seen trembling at the back on her kennel, often unsure of her surroundings. When she sees someone she knows, she will approach with the lowest tail wag as she nudges you for support. If you are committed to giving this pup the stability she needs to thrive, ask to meet Foggy!While she blossoms into the confident girl we believe she has the potential to be, she is looking for a home as the only pet in an adult household.

Good with kids, Good with dogs, Good with cats, House-trained,
Story
This is Seven! Seven was found wondering and we have been fostering her since. I do not want her to go to the pound for obvious reasons but she is unfortunately too much for our house. We decided that with our dogs, cat and our kids we just can’t provide what she needs full time. Seven is house broken and crate trained we have worked as hard as we could for her to have manners while we have had her. My husband and I both work long hours on opposite shifts to care for our crew but seven needs more. Seven needs someone willing to teach her how to walk on a leash and spend time with her one on one. Seven is good with our dogs, kids and cat. She is still a puppy so she still needs to be redirected sometimes. Seven is a good girl that has a lot to offer!

Story
Kane is a very shy and sweet boy. He will need an adopter that is familiar with the breed and knows how to help him gain confidence. He is not a candidate for an adopter that hasn't had dogs in the past or any adopters with small children. He is crate and house trained for the most part. He does get nervous when you leave and sometimes has accidents in his crate. He is dog selective and would do best in a home with no other dogs. Kane is very smart and rings a bell on the door when he has to go outside to potty! He loves to nap on your lap and would make a great work from home buddy. He was abused when he was a little puppy and has an unusual bark. He's been through a lot and needs an adopter that will be patient while he adjusts to his new home.   Kane is up to date on all age appropriate vaccines, neutered , microchipped, dewormed and on flea/heartworm prevention.    Kane’s adoption fee is $200.     The first step in the adoption process is to fill out an application.

***BLAKE IS A COURTESY POST - HE IS NOT IN OUR CARE***   Blake is 3 yrs old and 65 lbs, neutered and up to date on vaccines.Blake is an owner surrender. His family had called a local vets to have him put to sleep for an incident with the cat he had lived with (we don't have any details of the situation).

He is dog friendly (but we haven’t introduced him to dogs under 30 pounds). He loves everyone he meets, loves attention, going on outings to the pet store and the company of other dogs.   If interested, please fill out an adoption application: https://www.scarohio.org/adoption-application   We will forward the application to the kennel he is currently at and they will contact you.

Story
Angel was found on Route 2, trying to dodge freeway traffic. A kind samaritan was able to get her into their truck and find her a place to land safely. We immediately took her to the clinic as she looked a little rough but thankfully learned she was not majorly injured. She has a lot of puncture wounds which are still healing and was able to fight off an infection in her uterine. Based on medical and behavioral evaluation, it is cleared this sweet girl was dumped. Angel is now looking for a forever home to give her that piece of heaven that she deserves. She is cat, kid and dog friendly. Does well on the leash and not destructive in the home. She will go into her crate for meal time but is very opinionated about her crate until she settles down. Angel has been known as an escape artist for the crate specifically until it has been reinforced. This girl is very sweet and loves people despite people hurting her. Her favorite thing to do is give kisses. Overall, she's described as a nice young lady with moderate energy. She'll make a great companion in most homes. **Looking for a Friend for Angel? Spudz is a great candidate!**

Story
Gorgeous girl Jovie is happy and loving and she simply adores people. Jovie currently lives in a foster home, and she has shown that her two favorite things are belly rubs and toys. She's fun and engaging to play with, but makes an equally great hang-out and cuddle buddy. She's clearly had some litters in her life, but this mama is ready to be pampered and loved on herself. She loves watching you in the kitchen, and makes a great little sous-chef! She has a sensitive side, and thrives when she has a chance to take her time and get used to her new routine.Jovie has pretty good house manners once she knows the drill. She is crate-trained, and is content to sleep through the night in bed with her humans. She also rides well in the car. In her ideal world, she'd have a fenced-in yard to run and play! She is also a smarty who already knows sit, paw on both sides, and touch, and she's learning more such as "stay." Jovie would do best in a home without cats. She has the potential to live with a lower-key dog, but she would also be perfectly happy with just humans in her house too. She's estimated to be around 2 years old and weighs 45 lbs.Visit www.tinyurl.com/meetacitydog to meet lovely Jovie!

Story
Meet our big gentle mama, Shelly! Volunteers describe her as lovable, laid back, and oh-so sweet. Shelly has a reputation for being mild-mannered and easy to manage. She's fabulous and fun, and remains nicely attuned to her person. She knows how to sit, takes treats nicely, and seems housebroken. She just seems eager to please whoever she's with! Shelly has her moments of spunky playfulness, but overall she's a pretty chill gal who we think will enjoy a lot of relaxation and snuggles in her future home. Shelly was low-key meeting other dogs in play group, and is usually quietly curious passing other dogs on walks. Shelly is estimated to be around 2 years old and weighs 77 lbs.Visit www.tinyurl.com/meetacitydog to set up a meet!
