Story
Boo is my grandmother in laws dog. However she has been going through many health issues and is no longer been able to care for him. Her husband was caring for him but as of last week is hospitalized with his own medical issues and expected to be released to a rehab facility. My husband and I have been making the drive to let him out twice a day while everything was figured out however it is not looking like either of them will be going home anytime soon if ever. We feel this is not quality of life for him to live this way and would love to find him a loving home. He is approximately 6 or 7 years old and lives with an elderly cat with no issues. They used to have a small dog that he did not seem to mind and has met other large dogs when he was younger but can be dominant over other large dogs and may need to meet any potential fur siblings. While he was completely house broke now that he is going for extended periods of time may need refresher on always going potty outside.

Story
Meet Lana! Gender: Female Age: 12 years Current Weight: 75lbs Expected Adult Size: Large (50-100 lbs) Breed: Pit Bull Energy Level: Low Dog Friendly: Dog selective.  A more submissive dog would be best. Cat Friendly: No Kid Friendly: No Apartment Friendly: No Physical Fence Requirement: Physical fence required, any height Crate Trained: Yes Potty Trained: Yes Ideal Home/Adopter: Miss Lana is the the sweetest old lady who loves to be right in your lap at all times. She doesn't like to be crated, but does tolerate it for short periods of time. Her ideal house is a quiet, lazy house that will let her catch all the suns, give her all the treats and a comfy couch sleep on while she lives out her golden years. Likes: She loves to sunbathe, play dress up in her sweaters (because she is always cold), snuggling on the couch, and getting all the snacks. She loves to give kisses and likes her paw held when she's nervous. Short walks are best for Miss Lana since she's had a few knee surgeries in the past. She loves to paint, do puzzles and other enrichments with her friends at Camp Bow Wow! Dislikes: She has anxiety with new things and takes a while to acclimate. She doesn't like to be alone, she isn't a fan of men, and doesn't see very well, which can cause her to be jumpy sometimes.  Additional Considerations: She is potty trained but has had a long history of UTI infections that have left her a little leaky at night, so she wears diapers in case she has an accident while sleeping. She is muzzled on walks not because of the risk of her biting, but because she believes she has a stomach made of steel and can process sticks, grass, or other neighborhood "treasures". She is a fighter and we were able to have her mass cell tumors removed when she joined our rescue. What makes this dog special: Lana has quite a story! This is the goofiest old lady you will ever meet! She has some special needs, but that just makes the love she gives so special! She will melt your heart every time she looks at you. She loves to be tucked in to her blankets and a goodnight kiss on her head before bed. She has daily meds that she takes gently from your hand for her old lady anxiety and pain. She is an amazing girl who has so much love left to share with this world! Lana's adoption fee is $195 (or $65 if you are 65+). All fees include spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations, worming, flea and heartworm current. All dogs over 6 months of age have been tested and are heartworm negative. If you are interested in adopting Lana, apply at rescuedohio.org to become an approved adopter and a meet & greet can be set up once approved. ##1149955##

Story
Meet Phoebe! If you're into snuggly pitties with giant heads, it doesn’t get much better than this. Phoebe has the largest head-to-body ratio we've ever seen. It's a real melon. She uses that velvet bowling ball to snuggle up close and give you kisses just for hanging out. In her perfect world, she spends 50% of her day cuddling and 50% sprawled out in the sun. She absolutely loves sunbathing on the rocks, in the grass, on a raised bed... anywhere, really. Phoebe is very mellow 3 year old pup. While she enjoys a walk or running around the back yard for a bit, she's not a dog that will require a lot of exercise. She has some mild hip dysplasia that she takes medication for, so if you're looking for a young but lazy dog, she's perfect! Her foster family alternates between short walks and back yard play to make sure she’s getting enough exercise without overdoing it. For this reason, and due to her dog reactivity, Phoebe requires a home with a privacy fence so she can lounge around in peace (miraculously, her stout body can succesfully jump a chain link fence). Phoebe has made it clear that she doesn’t want to share the spotlight with other dogs, so she will need an owner that is comfortable owning and managing a dog that is reactive to other dogs. She really wants to play with the pups on the other side of the privacy fence, and we think she's probably capable of having a few trusted pups that she could have playdates with, but she acts like a real nutjob when she initally sees dogs (on walks, at the vet, on car rides, etc.). And because she would chase a squirrel to Mexico, we have a feeling cats would be a bad idea, though we haven’t tested it. Phoebe is wonderful with new humans, including guests in the home, but she is clumsy and sturdy and a bit too rough for a home with kids. And really, she just wants to be your baby. Phoebe is a bit smaller than she looks in photos, but still weighs about 65lbs. She does well for baths, is potty trained, and she's wonderful in the crate. She will sleep in her crate through the night or while you’re away with no issues, but won't turn down the opportunity to sleep in your bed either. She does the cutest little grumble/howl when you come home or when she's ready to play. She's a smart, sensitive girl who feeds off of your energy and generally knows when it's time to play vs. time to settle down.  Phoebe has a very sweet disposition and becomes everyone's best pal. To meet her is to love her. While she may seem a little difficult on paper, she will be the most amazing addition to a laid back household that just wants a snuggle buddy. Approved applicants can email us directly to arrange a meet & greet, or you can apply to adopt at RESCUEDohio.org. ##1189045##

Story
Name: Dani Gender: Female Age: 1 year Current Weight: 42lbs Expected Adult Size: Medium (25-50 lbs) Breed:Pit mix Energy Level: High Dog Friendly: Yes outside the home, but prefers to be only dog in the home Cat Friendly: Unknown Kid Friendly: Yes, any age Apartment Friendly: No Physical Fence Requirement: Physical fence required, any height Crate Trained: Yes Potty Trained: Yes Ideal Home/Adopter: Dani would feel most comfortable with an active home environment. She is a dynamo of energy followed by periods of being a couch potato. She is very competitive when playing with a ball or frisbee and likes to play keep away. Likes: She currently gets daily long walks in the woods early every morning, and eats on her schedule, sometimes immediately after and sometimes later in the afternoon. She loves drinking straight from a garden hose no matter the pressure but is not so fond of baths, however will gladly drink from and jump into the small wading pool in the backyard. She is good with the 5 and 2 year old grandkids in her foster home, but will occasionally inadvertently knock them down when play gets too exciting. Dislikes: lawn mowers, weed eaters, vacuums (and will attack said item) What makes this dog special: Dani can never get too much attention and will give you kisses till the cows come home. She is a lover dog 24/7 so much to the point that she wants to be your personal space. If you are looking for a lap dog, she is your girl! Dani's adoption fee is $350. All fees include spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations, worming, flea and heartworm current. All dogs over 6 months of age have been tested and are heartworm negative. If you are interested in adopting Dani, apply at rescuedohio.org to become an approved adopter and a meet & greet can be set up once approved. ##2013384##

Story
Dog's Name: Sadie Gender: Female Current Age: 2 years, Adult (1 year or older) Current Weight: 65 Expected Adult SizeLarge (50-100 lbs) Breed: Pitbull Energy Level: Medium Dog Friendliness: Yes, and can have other dogs in the home or can be an only dog. Cat Friendliness: Yes : Kid Friendliness: Yes, any age Apartments: No Physical Fence: Physical fence preferred but not required with regular walks/exercise Crate Trained: Yes Potty Trained: Yes Ideal Home / Adopter: Sadie will be happiest with a family who likes the occasional walk and doesn’t mind an 8pm zoomie session! Sadie will need someone who is strong to walk her while she gets better at leaving squirrels and chipmunks alone (she continues to make progress all the time!) Likes: Loves playing with her sister Star, throwing stuffy toys around for herself (then chasing them), tennis balls, making sure to chase any squirrels out of the yard, and giving lots of kisses! Dislikes: Can be weary of some men but quickly warms up (especially with some peanut butter/treat encouragement!) What makes this dog special: We describe Sadie as a “slow burn”—she takes a little bit to get comfortable, but once she is it’s so worth it! She loves giving face kisses and snuggling. She makes funny “snuffling” noises while cuddling which has resulted in us nicknaming her Piggy. She’s so great with her 2 year old human roommate! She gives him his space, even while he’s walking around with a snack. She’s food motivated which has made training a breeze! She’s already learned “wait” at doors and gates. Sadie is a 2 year old mix who recently lost her family.  She came in with her best friend, Star, and we'd like to keep them together.   Sadie's adoption fee is $350. All fees include spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations, worming, flea and heartworm current. All dogs over 6 months of age have been tested and are heartworm negative. If you are interested in Sadie, apply at rescuedohio.org to become an approved adopter and a meet & greet can be set up once approved. ##2050392##
