Story
Age: 5 months Size: 35 lbs Estimated breed: Pit bull/Staffordshire bull terrier Perfect home: Zara has grown up with older kids 12 and older and done well with them. She is cat-friendly. She loves the other dogs in her foster home who she's grown up with, but can be wary meeting new dogs, especially super energetic and playful ones. She would do okay with another dog her size (35 lbs) or larger with a slow introduction and decompression time. She'd also thrive as the only pup in the home!   Update from my foster 4/7: Zara is rocking it at her Board and Train! During her first week, we were helping her understand expectations and boundaries when it comes to food, bones, play time, and general manners. All the concerns she came with are now in the past and we are focusing on teaching her how to be the best puppy she can be. Which she's already amazing I might add. Seriously......if I were in the market to add to my zoo, Zara would be staying!! She is the best puppy and will make an amazing companion for the right family. Zara has been learning skills such as Sit, Focus, Orienting when called, Walking on leash, and Leave It this past week. Aside from those skills that are strictly verbal, we always start with hand cues and body language. Why? Because dogs don't understand English until it is taught to them. Dogs communicate through body language, so we work with them in ways they best understand before introducing a foreign language. She is super smart and quite the cuddler!   Zara and her family came to us under very sad circumstances. While conducting community outreach and providing straw and dog houses, our southern shelter partner came across mama Zainab and her fives babies, living outside in the middle of winter. Mama was chained up and had a heavy padlock around her collar, weighing her down. She was trying to nurse her five babies while she was already emaciated herself. Volunteers were able to convince the owners to surrender the puppies to them so they could seek immediate veterinarian care. Unfortunately, one of the puppies did not make it, but the remaining four puppies responded well to getting food in their tummies and warming up inside.    The Z litter is now safe in foster care and can't wait to find forever homes! They are super sweet, spunky little puppies. They love playing with each other and are currently in foster care with other dogs, a cat, and children. They are blank slates ready to be shaped and molded into the perfect dog by their forever families! They are looking for families with lots of time and patience to teach them everything a young dog needs to know.    To adopt Zara, please apply on our website! www.nirvanaanimalrescue.org/adoption-application   Please note we cannot guarantee the age or breed of any of our dogs. All of our dogs are working on their crate and house training.   PA Kennel License #18366June 12, 2024, 11:36 am

Story
Age: 7 months Size: 35 lbs Estimated breed: Pit bull/Labrador retriever mix Perfect home: At least one other dog, no kids under 10 Update from my foster 4/7: Jude is one perfect puppy! He sleeps through the night better than my adult dogs, and I usually have to wake him up and force him to go outside in the morning/evening! He has not had any potty accidents in several months and will go to the door when he needs to go out, though he does get frequent breaks every 2-3 hours to go outside. He is crated when I leave the house and when he eats his meals, and he knows to go into the crate on his own. He sleeps in a dog bed in my bedroom at night and understands that he’s not allowed onto the human bed (the resident chihuahua’s rule, not mine). He is very respectful of all the other dogs in the home and is very submissive to them all. He has a bad habit of chasing the cats in the house but responds immediately when you tell him “no.” He’s not aggressive with them but does enjoy the chase, so if you have cats in the home they would need to be brave and dog-savvy enough to hold their ground and give him a good “boop” when he tries to chase. He is pretty low-key for a puppy but definitely still gets bursts of puppy energy where he will run zoomies in the yard, often throwing his favorite toy around on his own. He loves to fetch and is great about bringing the ball or toy back to you to throw it for him. If I didn’t have my grouchy senior chihuahua, I would definitely be keeping Jude - he is seriously the sweetest, gentlest, most well-behaved foster pup I have ever had the joy of fostering!   Jude was surrendered to the shelter when he was only 5 months old. He was extremely scared in the scary shelter environment, which is no place for a young puppy. Fortunately, a foster stepped up so we were able to get him out of the shelter and into a foster home while he looks for his forever home! Jude is around 7 months old and weighs 35 lbs, so we don’t anticipate he’ll be a super large dog! He is nervous with new people but always sweet with them. He warms up after a day or two and once he does, be ready to have a constant shadow by your side! He shares his foster home with multiple other dogs and cats who he does great with. Due to how shy he is initially, he would be happiest in a home with at least one resident dog to show him the ropes, and no young kids. He does well in his crate overnight and is picking up on house training quickly. He loves playing with other dogs and is a big fan of playing fetch, too! Jude is looking for a patient and loving family who can show him that people aren't so scary and demonstrate what unconditional love looks like!   To adopt Jude, please apply on our website! https://www.nirvanaanimalrescue.org/adoption-application   Please note we cannot guarantee the age or breed of any of our dogs.

Story
Age: 9 months Size: 35 lbs Estimated breed: Pit bull/Boston terrier mix   Teeny tiny Pixel was found abandoned on a property with no food or water available to her. Thankfully for her, neighbors alerted animal control, who picked her up and get her to the shelter safely! Once in the shelter, poor Pixel picked up parvo, which is a highly contagious disease that can turn deadly quick. She received treatment and was able to pull through, though she had to remain quarantined for two weeks post-treatment. Despite all these hardships she experienced at such a young age, Pixel remained a happy, sweet, playful girl who just wants to get attention from people.    Pixel is finally safe in foster care and is looking for a forever home! She is the definition of a permanent puppy and weighs only 25 lbs at 8 months old. She is extremely petite and looks more like a 4 month old puppy, despite having adult teeth! We are calling her a pit bull/boston terrier mix but who knows what other interesting breeds could be in her DNA. What we do know is Pixel is a sweet little girl who is great with the dog, cat, and child in her foster home. She's a playful girl with plenty of youthful energy to go around! She loves to play with her toys and her doggie foster sister in the backyard and is learning how to walk nicely on leash. Pixel will do great in most homes, provided they've got plenty of time, love, and attention to give to her!    To adopt Pixel, please apply on our website! https://www.nirvanaanimalrescue.org/adoption-application   Please note we cannot guarantee the age or breed of any of our animals. All of our dogs are working on their crate and house training.   PA Kennel License #18366 June 12, 2024, 11:36 am

Story
Age: 15 weeks Size: 20 lbs Estimated breed: Pit bull terrier mix   Dunk ended up at the overcrowded shelter due to zero fault of his own. He clearly did not belong there, so we got him into the safety of foster care while we look for his forever home! He is around 15 weeks old and at best guess, a pit bull terrier mix, so we assume he will be a medium-large dog full grown. He has lived with dogs, cats, and kids and done great with everyone. As a young puppy, he will need lots of training and guidance as he grows to ensure he is the best dog he can be. He is working on his crate and house training and looking forward to continuing to learn in his forever home. Like all young puppies, he’d thrive in most homes as long as they have lots of time, attention, patience, and most importantly, love to give him!   To adopt Dunk, please apply on our website! https://www.nirvanaanimalrescue.org/adoption-application   Please note we cannot guarantee the age or breed of any of our dogs.

Story
Meet Mr. Jack! We know, we know, HE IS SO HANDSOME!! Jack is also extremely sweet and LOVES belly rubs. He is great with other pups his size and larger, but hasn’t been around small dogs or kids. We do know that he isn’t a fan of cats though and likes to chase the small rodents in the yard. Jack LOVES to eat and is very food motivated, which is great for training. He knows his basic commands, but can be stubborn at times and likes to be bribed with a treat. He is house+crate trained as well, and does very good in his crate! Jack has lots of energy and would LOVE a fenced in yard in his forever home. If not fenced in, then an active family that would like to take him on walks or runs, hikes, and family vacations of course! If Jack would be perfect for your family, please apply! He can’t wait to be part of your family! ================================================================= If interested in adopting one of our available pets, please fill out an application at http://www.dixiegirldogrescue.org/adopt-form PLEASE MAKE NOTE- OUR DOGS ARE FOSTERED IN ALABAMA (UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED), OUR DOGS TRANSPORT NORTH TO THEIR NEW FAMILIES AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN ADOPTED.
