Story
Dog selective. Belle is in need of a new foster home as a member of the house has become very ill. Belle does not chew on shoes though she does like to carry them around when she gets excited. Belle was born in our care on April 1st 2017 to Momma Orla. She and her siblings were named after Beauty and the Beast characters. She and her 'sister' didn't get along so the family felt she would be better with a new family. She did great with her two Chihuahua siblings, and may do well with a male dog. She loves to give kisses and plays hard on toys. One of her favorite past times is to bird watch. Cats and kids are unknown at this time. She is currently in boarding and we need her out!Thank you for your interest in adopting a pet from Guardians of the Green Mile Inc.

Story
Kenzo continues to amaze us every day. He has been putting in all the work, hoping that is forever family is out there looking for him!! He is doing great with commands. He just about has them all down. He's extremely treat motivated and even more motivated for belly rubs. He loves to love and be loved. He's so gentle with his kisses and cuddles but watch out for his zoomies! He's really enjoying being outside in this weather and sometimes it takes a little convincing to get him to come in. He's doing great on walks and just needs more leash practice. He's doing so well on potty training and he's almost there! He will usually let you know when he has to go, he's just quiet about it. His ability to share space with cats is slowly progressing. If someone was willing to continue to work with him, he would do great. He genuinely just wants to be with you and have all your attention. He's been great around my preschool aged nephews and our female dog. I really hope someone sees him and just knows he'd be the perfect fit for them --Letter from Kenzo's Foster Mom Kenzo is available through Guardians of the Green Mile (www.gotgm.org) of Portage, IN.

Story
It’s impossible not to love sweet little Mandi. She enjoys her time in the sun while we’re working away in our yard and garden. She is so gentle on leash and has done so well making eye contact and learning basic commands. She also doesn't doordart, which shows how determined she is to be with her family instead of dashing away. And she loves munching on fruits and veggies with her foster brothers. She couldn’t be more gentle when taking a treat!! ***** Meet Mandi! We believe Mandi to be about 6 months old. She spent a day following a mail person walking their route. When they had to drive off, Mandi sat in the middle of the street all sad. Knowing a friend that was in rescue, they called and asked if anything could be done. ABSOLUTELY! We coordinated with volunteers to pick up and hold her until the end of the work day. Sherri spent the afternoon calling and trying to find an emergency foster home. Like every shelter in the area, we were full. Of course our village came through for this little angel. Her rescuer (THANK YOU Amanda!) drove her to meet Miss Sherri. She was checked for a second time for a chip and we still did not find one. Mandi and Sherri had a mini road trip to pick up emergency essential supplies and finally drop her off at her foster home (THANK YOU Carrie & family!). Mandi is doing well in her foster home. They said for a puppy that was running on the streets that she is behaving really well. She is an absolute sweetheart and loves scratches and cuddles. We can't believe no one is looking for this sweet girl, but here we are. Mandi is looking for a family, and we promised her it would be an amazing one! Mandi is available through Guardians of the Green Mile (www.gotgm.org) of Portage, IN.

Story
Who is looking for a Gentle Giant in a compact body? At 55lbs, Bruce is the perfect 'small' sized large dog. Bruce was a stray that turned up at someone's house and a neighbor took him in trying to find his family. Sadly no one has stepped forward for this boy. He is a very sweet boy who is very cautious of noises, barks, cars etc. He is learning to sit on command and is working on his leash manners. He hasn't shown any aggression and is generally a slow easy-going guy. He enjoys laying down with his foster family and being petted. He likes to run down the deck stairs into the backyard, around to the other side, and back up. When he runs around in the yard, he lopes around playfully, which he didn't do 2 weeks ago! He is starting to open up for us. We are still learning about Bruce as he begins to come out of his shell, but his foster dad says, 'I can see signs of a great dog!' Bruce is available through Guardians of the Green Mile (www.gotgm.org) of Portage, IN.

Story
Amazing Grace! This sweetie was at a very overcrowded shelter, heartworm positive, and had limited time left. Thankfully, a volunteer stepped up to foster her and we couldn't be happier! This girl is the bees' knees! She is just such a lovebug. Grace is a consummate cuddler, loves everyone, and has a wonderful disposition. It needs to be noted that Grace does resource guard food with other animals. This is not at all surprising, given that she was so skinny and underweight when she came to us. She is very food motivated, which is wonderful for training purposes, but does need to be fed separately from other pets. She loves to play with toys, she loves to snuggle up for a good movie, and she is overall just an angel. She has completed very painful heartworm treatment and we are glad that is behind her. She will need to be retested in 6 months time to be certain the treatment worked (we will cover that test). Amazing Grace is just a gorgeous and very lovable girl. Her adoption fee is $250.

Story
Poor Bam Bam. She was adopted in August of 23 from an animal control (she was 10 months old at the time). Shortly thereafter, her adopter took her to a local boarding facility for a week....and never came back. She sat in a kennel for months and her owner was never able to be tracked down. Bam Bam has joined us now and we are happy to have her, as she is the sweetest little doll ever. She is JUST a hair under 40 pounds, she is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, etc. Bam Bam is absolutely a precious girl. She LOVES people and just wants to snuggle and play. We do know she is NOT good with cats, and while we have not introduced her to other dogs yet, she has seemed excited when she's seen them. She's about a year and 3 months now, we are working on housetraining (you can't blame her, she's spent most of her life in a kennel of some sort or another). We do know she loves kisses and cuddles and has a very loving personality.

Story
Tito is seriously about as handsome as it gets, and just as sweet! He is 2.5 years old and just a beautiful soul. He is shy with new people, and we believe he'll do best as the only pet. He needs to build some confidence to get over his fear of "new," but he warms up quickly and oh my goodness, you just won't find a more loving and snuggly cuddle buddy. He is just an absolute doll who wants to be loved. He is fully vetted and his adoption fee is $250.
