Story
Shade is a trucker's dog at heart. He would thrive as someones co-pilot as they traveled around in their truck, van or RV. He is the happiest when beside you in your vehicle as you find new adventures. He also is a dog that LOVES the AC since he is known to overheat easy, thus his name because he always needs the shade!

Story
Chip is what some would call a velcro pup. He wants to be next to his people all the time and gets a bit worried if left alone for to long. But as soon as you come home he will light up just so he can run and give you love. He loves children to the point of being over protective against father figures. So we would recommend him either be in a house with grown children or without them at all. That being said he is always very gentle and caring towards them if they are visiting. He could make someone who is looking for a cuddle buddy very happy if he was given the chance.

Story
Hello everyone! My name is Milton and I come to you today in search of my forever home. Let me share a bit about myself. I am a stunningly handsome American Husky/Pitbull Terrier born approximately Feb. 2023 …. a true gentleman never reveals his actual age 😂. I get along well with other dogs, although typically prefer the more submissive males and females. Cats are a hard no for me as I like to chase them a bit to much. I’ve had some good training through Mattox Dog Training academy and was in the running to be a service dog! Although I didn’t make the cut, I came very close. I need a home with a secure fence as I like jumping them from time to time. However I’m making great strides in understanding I shouldn’t. I enjoy a good bath and tolerate nail trims like a champ! I’m housebroken and do just fine hanging out in a kennel when needed - although like all dogs, I don’t enjoy kenneling for long periods of time. I would love a home with another playful canine companion. I would live my best life with humans who are active, keep me engaged and continue training me as I am a smart boy! I want to be part of a family or a person’s most loyal companion. Children are great - but I’d do best in a home with kids who are over 5 who understand I may accidentally knock them over. Please apply for me, I promise to be the bestest boy ever!” Applications: www.mikeyschance.com

Story
Nyiri (Nigh-ear-E) aka Ny, NyNy and Bubbles, is pit mix born in April 2021. She is wonderful with people and children, even younger toddlers. She would most likely prefer to be the only canine in her home to soak up all the love from her people. She would do best in a home without another female dog, smaller dogs or cats. Her favorite activity is snuggling up to her people. She literally has such a bubbly personality and when excited makes tons of cute noises. Nyiri will require a home with fully fenced yard, she is not recommended for apartment living. Her ideal home would be with adults or adults and children over 5 (although exceptions might be made for the right home). Applications can be accessed at www.mikeyschance.com

Story
This boy is such a gentle soul! All he asks out of life is a comfy corner of the couch, maybe a patch of sun to lie in now and then, casual walks in places with interesting smells, space to run the occasional zoomie, and someone who loves him - and for that he's willing to trade his whole heart. HISTORY Kane was born on January 27th, 2014. According to the person who bred him he is a purebred rednose pit bull. He was adopted as a puppy by a young man in his early 20s. About a year ago Kane's owner abandoned him with his ex-girlfriend. She already has her own dog - Kane's son - and, as a single parent, she doesn't have the resources or the bandwidth to provide for him. She's asked HART to find him a home with people who can meet his needs and love him for whatever time he has left. SOCIALIZATION Kane is affectionate and bouncy with his special people, gentle with children (he shares his home with a toddler), and good with other dogs he knows. When he meets new humans he is calm, polite and friendly. With new dogs he can be a little pushy - he REALLY wants to play - but with a proper introduction he is respectful and friendly. He is not safe with cats. TEMPERAMENT & GENERAL BEHAVIOR Before anything else, he's a snuggler. His favorite place is wherever his hooman is at - preferably cuddled up close, under a blanket, on a bed or couch. But he is not exclusively a couch potato! Kane's dream home has a yard big enough for zoomies, and he'd love to share it with a friendly canine playmate who isn't fazed by hard-driving bully scrambles. At 10 years old Kane has slowed down - he plays quite hard but only for a little while, and then he's ready for a nap. Kane is usually calm, but he's an alert watchdog who will bark a warning if he hears an intruder. He copes fine with being left alone while his caregiver is away from their apartment. He loves going for walks - Kane would be a great companion for casual hikes or strolls around your neighborhood. He enjoys car rides - he can get a little over-excited trying to watch EVERYTHING passing by all at once, but he will eventually settle down. He waits patiently if left in the car alone. He's not big on toys - squeakers and stuffies leave him cold - but he loves a good chew. (And yes, he knows the difference between his chew stuff and your non-chew stuff!) When he was younger he enjoyed games of fetch and tug, but since moving to an apartment he hasn't had many opportunities for off-leash outdoor play. We're guessing he might enjoy starting up with that again! TRAINING Kane is reliably house-trained and doesn't mark indoors. He's crate trained, and is comfortable in a crate. His house manners are fair. When he gets excited he may jump up on you (he listens when told to get down), and he needs to be reminded to wait instead of barreling through the door. But he's not destructive, and he doesn't have any other bad habits. Kane is comfortable on a leash, although he may pull at the beginning of a walk because there is SO much that's demanding the attention of his nose! His recall is good. He knows the basic commands - sit, down, stay - and responds fairly well. He'd probably benefit from a refresher training course just to remind him of what you expect in the way of manners. HEALTH STATUS Kane has been neutered, microchipped and dewormed, and is up to date on all shots. He weighs about 60 lbs. Kane has some significant health needs, which can be managed but require a vet visit every four to six weeks, a special diet, and daily medications. - He has allergies that make him very uncomfortable and itchy. These are managed by means of a controlled diet (no chicken or corn, please!) and his current vet has him on cytopoint shots every four to six weeks. - He needs to have his anal glands expressed about monthly, or they impact and erupt. - He recently developed an ocular autoimmune condition, for which the vet says he will need Optimmune Ophthalmic, probably for the rest of his life. - Like most old dogs he has some lumps and bumps, and it's possible that a couple of these may be potentially of concern. At this stage they don't appear to cause him any discomfort. The cost of his medications runs around $125/month, and they are essential to his wellbeing. Because Kane needs an adopter who is willing and able to make a long-term, ongoing financial commitment to meeting this need, there is no adoption fee for this boy. We just want to know he's safe, loved and cared for. ADOPTION INFORMATION Kane is in foster care in a private home in Pasco, and will be available to meet you after your adoption application has been approved. Please email HearthfireART@gmail.com to request an adoption application form.
