Story
Please read entire description. Maizie's adoption fee is waived to an approved applicant. If interested, please apply at www.pawswapofgreaterlafayette.com/adopting.    Maizie was a puppy with us in 2018 and has found her way back due to some medical issues in her former family. She is 6 years old and weighs in at about 60 pounds. She is great with people, house trained, crate trained, and trustworthy to be left out with no issues. She adores human companionship and is good with children. She is gentle, knows some basic commands, and just wants a lot of love!   Maizie has not had any experience with cats. She has lived with other dogs in the past and in her previous foster. She does best with non-reactive, tolerant, co-existing dogs. Unfortunately, Maizie seems to be a dog that often gets picked on by other dogs; this is the reason for a recent move into a new foster home. Currently, she is having to spend a lot of time alone and its not ideal! She is going to work with her new foster mom and does great in the office. She does bark for a moment at new people and then settles. Maizie is a terrific girl and in need of a new home or a foster asap! Maizie is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is waived to an approved applicant. If interested in fostering or adopting, please complete an application on our website at www.pawswapofgreaterlafayette.com/adopting. One application works for all of our dogs. ##1952037##

Story
I'm Booker and I'm 4 years old! I am a sweet boy that LOVES to play with toys! I am very treat motivated and I already know how to sit, lay down, and go to my kennel. I am a loyal, goofy, and playful guy that can also settle down for bedtime cuddles! My past wasn't the brightest: I came from an abusive home, was heartworm positive and then on the euthanasia list at another shelter. My temporary family saved me and I completed all my heartworm treatments, so I am a healthy boy now! My temporary family had to surrender me to another shelter because I wasn't very good with their kids under five years old. Because of my past, I can be nervous around strangers, but if you have food in hand, I call you my best friend! I would do well in a home with older children, and I get along great with other dogs and cats!

Story
Hi, hi! I'm Bubs and I'm 5 years old! I am a sweet boy that enjoys the company of dogs and kids! I love to go outside and play, run, sniff, my surroundings and then bask in the sunshine with my favorite human! We originally thought that cats weren't the best idea for me, but I've recently seemed okay with them. I think I would fit into any home that is looking for a companion! I am one of the few dogs in the shelter that might not greet you right at the kennel door. You will often find me snuggled onto my blanket because I am waiting for someone to take me outside and love on me.

Story
Hi there, I'm Spy! I am a happy go lucky guy. I was the longest resident at my previous shelter and no one is sure why. I am a goofy boy that loves to play with toys, especially interactive ones like kongs, snuffle mats and puzzle feeders! I first came to my previous shelter as an unsocialized ten month old puppy, but the staff have worked hard with me to get me where I am today! I am dog selective and I don't mind older kids, but cats and I don't get along since I am overly curious and want to chase! Other than that, I am one darn good feller.

Story
Meet Nessa!! Nessa is believed to be a 4 to 5 years young APBT staff shire terrier mix. What people call a low rider. What we do know is this. She is extraordinary amazingly awesome and damn near perfection. She will trap you with her soulful eyes and work you like a puppet. Despite her history of abuse and being used as a target bait dog, she is remarkable with all and every dog met. She is motherly and nurturing and without other dogs even if her human was with her 24/7 she still misses them. It's within her nature to be with a pack. Nessa has been exposed to and lived with many dogs big and small and done well always. She too is ok with cats and does terrific with children of all ages as young as 1-year-old. Walks perfectly on a leash, and depending on the person her recall is spot on. Now let's discuss her emotional dramatic skilled methods to charm humans. She offers belly-ups to all and anyone who she can sucker into falling for the pity me look, love me, I need loving performance. She will pull your heartstrings. Draw you in and by now she owns you. 😆 it's too late! You have been pitbull owned. You've been "Nessa" and now follow through by offering "the look" to gain control of your actions, she will have you babying her and in no time treating her like a princess. Your sole purpose of spoiling & babying her as she gets what she wants from you and does as she pleases. IT'S TOO LATE! Her well-executed strategic played-out plan worked. No way of going back. When done so all of the above she is confident she has gained complete control and her dramatization magnitude is increased even more. Foraging all the self-pity look glazing you with her soulful eyes to sucker you in even more. It's a matter of time before she will gain the throne. 🤣 You have been captured but what we call Pitbull Love. Nessa was one we rescued out of state when we assisted on a transport leg to empty a high-kill shelter. She was the only one left without rescue due to her history of abuse and was used as a bait dog. It was clear she would require a lot of rehabilitation and as well as medical for her body to heal from the continued trauma. And even more so her mind. Nessa succeeded in rehabilitation training and now become outgoing, a bit shy sometimes but you wouldn't know it, happy, friendly, and loves all she meets! Nessa is a nurturer, a sweet soul who healed by allowing us to help her become the dog she was always meant to be. The first year was not easy. Her fear threat of dogs was obvious. Survival was prominent in her mind. But her love allowed her to place trust in us and that's how she relearned and gain confidence with dogs. Once she knew she was safe at the sanctuary the rest just followed and made her rehabilitation training straightforward. She always found comforting someone, human or animal. She is an all-size dog, cat, rabbit, bird, flock, and human as well as children as young as a year old sociable. Upon arrival we noticed she needed medical attention, her skin was full of open wounds and bite marks, fresh and old. All different stages of healing indicate continued prolonged abuse. She was also heartworm positive and had an old open fracture wound that barely healed and had done so wrong on her right front metacarpal. No words to even begin to comprehend how any human could be capable of such evil. Today she runs, plays, and loves life. She is happy too. She is healthy, negative for the heart-worm disease, and oh so ready for her happy forever life to take off. Nessa is perfection and true to the breed. Loves toys, treats, and training, and the leg fractures healed but she has to learn to live with what's left of it. Nessa is active and able to walk without intervention. This beautiful forgiving soul deserves the best forever home! Nessa is house and crate trained but needs a routine schedule when in any new environment, current to date on all appropriate core vaccines including lepto & corona, 1 or 3-year rabies, dewormed, fecal tested negative, microchipped including free registration for life, spay/neutered, heartworm & lyme diseases tested negative upon adoption,   and on monthly heartworm flea/tick prevention. Out-of-state adopters are welcome at the adopter's expense. We do NOT ship and meet and greet are required before adoption unless you are a previous adopter. Previous adopters of AHS have the first choice and are not expected to pay another adoption fee again.  Donation of their choice is welcomed. Training is an ongoing process that needs to be worked on daily. New issues and opportunities arise daily that have to be addressed and or rewarded. Continued training is a must. Adoption process information can be found on our website www.animalhousesanctuary.org The Adoption Fee of $285 covers all of the above and everyday needs/care. Update:7/4/23

Story
Foster or Adopter wanted! This sweetie is STILL available. We don't know how?! This boy has a sparkly personality and loves cats and kids and has a long list of his favorite things.....Please apply at www.pawswapofgreaterlafayette.com/adopting.    Dexter is the most amazing, 4-5 year old, chonky Boxer mix with a nubby tail. He's friendly, happy and can no longer stay in his home due to quarrels with another dog. They tried professional training to no avail. We are seeking a household where Dexter will be the only dog living there, although he can be friendly with other dogs. He seems to prefer to have his family all to himself on an ongoing basis.   Dexter is house trained and crate trained. He doesn't love being in a crate, but does tolerate it. If left out for long periods, he will have occasional accidents, but is not destructive. Dexter would preferably have a physically fenced yard. He does walk nicely on leash.   Dexter's list of loves: Cuddling and being right next to his people (especially on their bed in night). Favorite toy; the Otter. Raccoon is a close second. He loves to watch Scooby Doo when left alone. Greenies specifically the blueberry flavored ones. Dexter lives for belly rubs and likes to show his people things around the house by gently taking their hand and leading them. Warm jackets and harnesses during a walk (but they must come off once back in the house.)   Dexter is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, and microchipped. He will also come with many of his things including his toys, bed, bowls, leash, collar, and harness. If interested in Dexter, his adoption fee is $100. If interested, please complete an application on our website at www.pawswapofgreaterlafayette.com/adopting. One application works for all of our dogs.   ##1943259##

My name is Grizzly and I am full of energy! I love my toys and will proudly show them off. I am a heavy chewer so I really like the tough chew toys! I should be the only animal in the home because I don't seem to get along with other dogs or cats.
