Story
This funky little man is Leo. He is a happy, goofy boy who loves attention. Leo looks like a pit but short and long, which makes him even more lovable! He rolls around for pets and hugs and prefers to be a velcro dog 90% of the time. He is people-friendly and dog friendly. He would need to be tested with cats. Leo is right at 50lbs and is around 4 years old. He's hoping for someone who is active and is willing to work on leash manners and jumping.

Story
Jinx arrived at the shelter as a stray. She's a bit high energy so she'd love an active home. We think she'll mellow out a bit once she's not kenneled constantly. She greatly enjoys hanging out with her people or exploring outdoors. She can be mouthy so older children would be best. She is spayed, microchipped, & up to date on vaccinations.February 27, 2024, 6:45 pm

Story
Well hi, aren't you a friendly face! They call me Evelyn and I'm a lovely white Staffordshire gal looking for someone special to share my love with. I'd thrive in a peaceful home where we can take nice long walks and relax with snuggles. I need to be an only child. Just imagine our days chilling out together, playing fetch, and bonding over yummy treats! I'm very sweet and know how to take treats gently too. I just know we'd make the perfect pair! Make this sweet girl's wish come true and give her a loving home! Evelyn is very loving, sweet and loyal. She is great with all people, but is dog-selective because she wants to be the goddess in the family. Best to have her as an only dog. Evelyn is a very loving, sweet and loyal Staffie girl. She is great with all people, but is dog-selective because she wants to be the goddess in the family. Evelyn is nursing some injuries. She will be fine, but will need a Medical Foster or Adopter who does not have any other dogs. She needs to feel safe and decompress in a quiet home. Evelyn will have gone through a behavioral modification board and train program prior to adoption! In this program she will have learned proper heeling on a leash, basic obedience, place command, off leash recall, no bolting out of doors, people and dog socialization, kennel/potty training and more! After adoption process is finalized, the new owners will work with the trainer 1-on-1 for 2 hours to learn what their new dog has learned in the program and how to keep up with training after going home. This will all be included in your adoption fee! ##1862073##

Story
Hello there, I'm Angel - though some call me White Angel because of my gorgeous white coat. I'm a sweet 3 year old Staffordshire gal looking for a home to call my own. I'm a total lovebug who adores getting all the belly rubs and playing. Since I've got lots of energy and I'm a bit shy at first. I am bonded with Patches, my bestie, who is also on here. It would be wonderful if we could be fostered or adopted into the same home. We both get along with kids, dogs and people! I promise to be your loyal companion if you open your heart and life to this beautiful girl. Let's embark on new adventures together! ##1862083##

Story
I adopted this handsome guy at a shelter when I was living in Colorado. He’s about 2 1/2 years old and the sweetest pup with soooooooo many cuddles to give! He really is such a sweetheart, it is sad that we have to let him go. He has anxiety and with a baby in the house now, he’s better in a home where he’s getting all the attention. He does good with our other dog but he can come off a little strong around others, so if you have another dog already you may just need some time for them to warm up to each other. I don’t know how he would be around cats as we don’t have any. He’s been an apartment dog for as long as I’ve had him and he walks good on leash. If you’re interested in this cutie pie feel free to reach out!

Story
Nike Sinclair has front leg deformity in both limbs and requires a foster home in order for the rescue to start medical care. He needs to be seen by an Orthopedic Specialist to determine a diagnosis and prognosis on his limbs. Whether he has surgery or not, he will need to attend therapy and the foster will be taught how to do the therapeutic exercises at home for him. From what the shelter in Louisiana says, he is mobile, very friendly with dogs and people. He has not been neutered, but has been given his first round of vaccines. You must be "in it to win it" by fostering this dog. If you can foster please complete an application at www.k9ei.dog or email info@k9ei.dog to discuss.
