Story
Nova has an infectious enthusiasm for life! She is always eager to make new friends – both human and canine. She thrives on playtime with other dogs and enjoys spending time outside. She is curious and a good listener - it’s easy to let her know playtime is over and it’s time to relax. When it's time to wind down, Nova loves nothing more than cuddling up with her favorite humans and furry friends alike. Whether she's snuggled up on the couch or curled up in bed, Nova is happiest when she's surrounded by love and affection. She has the ability to curl up into the tiniest of spaces, so no one is safe from Nova's cuddles – and who could resist such a sweet and affectionate pup? Nova has been fixed, vaccinated for DHLP-P, Bordetella, and Rabies, micro-chipped, wormed, flea treated, and heartworm tested. ($650 worth of veterinary care.) If you are interested and have a fenced in yard, please fill out an adoption application first. L Adoption fee: $350 We only adopt within the state of Ohio.

Dewey is a sweet boy looking for a loving home! He was found stray outside of my apartment, and was so sweet from the start. He loves to snuggle, go on walks, and play! Right now, we are specifically seeking an adult only home with no pets because we do not know how he is with other animals or children yet. He is being trained as much as we can right now also!

Story
Marley was abruptly abandoned with me by someone who initially adopted her from the Veteran Companion Animal Services. Marley is 3 or 4 years old. She is smart and picks up on commands quick. She demands attention from everyone in the room. She is very friendly and will greet every single person and animal at the dog park. Marley can jump straight up and touch your nose without a running start. Marley rarely barks but she will let out a bark or two when necessary. Although Marley is good with other dogs, she may thrive more in a home where she is the center of attention. Marley is the sweetest girl that gives the best kisses. Marley was an unexpected addition to my home which already had 2 dogs. I fear this home is holding her back from her full potential as we are preparing for a new human addition. I am hoping to find her a new forever home that can give her all the attention she deserves.

Check out the picture of SheRa with adopted Rico dog Harvey SheRa has been around cats and rabbits and is fine with both. She is house-trained and crate-trained and LOVES soft, squeaky toys! The three things that make her happiest are:1 being talked to2making eye contact3 literally any touch!Her foster says, In the middle of the night I just put my hand on her head and her tail starts thumping! And adds:She really is a GREAT dog and we love her so much and honestly this is the most torn up we've ever been about possibly foster failing but unfortunately we just can't keep her but obviously will keep on loving her until her forever family finds her!She is approximately 5 years old and is now a happy, healthy girl. Please consider giving SheRa the loving home she deserves. Despite her awful past, she now lives to LOVE and as a result is just lovely!

Story
Gypsy is located in TEXAS. There are not enough homes for all the unwanted dogs down there, so she is willing to relocate for a good, loving, forever home. Gypsy is a very good girl and is the most obedient dog I have ever seen. She knows how to sit and comes when called. She is housetrained and very well behaved in the house. She likes her crate and sleeps in it with the door open. She walks well on a leash and rides well in a vehicle. Gypsy loves her toys, especially squeaky ones, and she loves playing fetch. Gypsy is active - she loves to run and play with toys and other dogs. She loves water and lays in the wading pool when it is hot, and we bet she would love snow. She gets excited about squirrels, cats, and critters on the other side of the fence. Gypsy does well with all dogs but gets along best with male dogs. She is normally good around small dogs but occasionally mistakes one for a toy when she is over-excited. So she is not recommended for homes with small dogs. She is not too fond of puppies getting in her face either. Gypsy loves human attention and is good with children. She could perhaps use more obedience training with someone firm, patient, and loving. Gypsy is very sweet. She gets attached to her human and likes to lay under my desk when I work on the computer. Gypsy walks well on a leash and rides well in the car. She must be in the house as a loved family member, and she needs a yard with a 6' fence to run and play. Gypsy came from a bad home. She was not being fed and was severely underweight. So the people surrendered Gypsy and her puppies to animal control to avoid animal cruelty charges. Gypsys DNA test results are mostly Boxer, Husky, and German Shepherd. She bounces on her front legs when she is excited and we now know that comes from the Boxer in her. Gypsy is around 5 years of age and weighs 70 pounds (she only weighed 35 pounds when we got her). Gypsy is healthy. She is spayed, tattooed, fully vaccinated (DAPPvL2, Bordatella, rabies), and microchipped. Gypsy had a light case of heartworms when we first got her. We used the slow-kill method (we are happy to explain this) and she is now negative for heartworms and on monthly heartworm and flea prevention. Gypsy's adoption fee includes the cost of ground transport to Columbus, Cincinnati, or Akron Ohio. She is located in Texas and cannot be transported until after she is adopted.

Meet Steel! She is a loving 18 month female 55 lb boxer mix who is smart, kind, and loves to play with toys! She is a little shy at first, but once she gets to know you she'll be sleeping on the couch next to you in no time! She is very smart and knows how to sit, stay, down, off, and leave it. She is house broken and loves to hang outside! She is working on her walking without pulling and we have 2 extra training sessions available to the adopter at no additional charge! We are in desperate need to find her a new forever home where she can get all the love and attention she deserves. Her ideal home would include her as the only pet and have a fenced yard since that is what she is used to. She’s the happiest, fun loving girl who’s ready to give you lots of kisses! She is spayed and up to date on all shots and monthly preventative.

Story
BasilMaleAge: 10 yearsWeight: 49lbsBreed: English Bulldog/Beagle Mix Hey there, I’m Basil. I am a happy and loving guy who gets along with kids and I really don’t have much interest in cats, so a home with cats would be just fine. I am a little selective with the other dogs I meet. I prefer friendly dogs.  While I am inside, I do wear a belly band. I am house trained and don’t need to be crated when you leave for your normal workday. I am also crate trained and I do well on a leash too (I do pull some with excitement, but my harness helps Immensely). I love to wander around outside and play with friendly dogs, travel with my human, take naps with my human or just nap by myself on a comfy bed or sofa. My foster mom says I am soulful and happy and loving and I just want to be your best friend. I would love to be with you as much as possible. I also love a good bone, all the treats and a stuffed Kong. If you do have another pet in the house, I would need to be fed separately. This includes snacks too. I like to guard my meals. Because of my age I have some worn down teeth and I did have a growth removed, but thank goodness it wasn’t cancerous. At my last vet appointment the doctor might have detected a murmur so, everyone is keeping an eye on that.  But, it doesn’t slow me down at all! I would love to find my forever family who will provide me all the love I deserve! If you are interested in meeting Basil apply at www.causeforcanines.org Adoption fee: $195 Must be an Ohio resident & 23 or older. Children must be 5 years or older.   ##1633287##
