Story
Sweet Kiki is one of the best dogs! She is an affectionate little lady who just wants to show you all the love. She came into rescue with her puppies and now that they are grown, it's her time to shine! She has fun playing in the back yard with her doggie foster siblings, but her favorite pastime is being around her foster family and getting in lots of pets and snuggles. She is an extremely affectionate, medium-energy dog. She loves walks around the block but can spend a lot of her day snuggling with you on the sofa. She thinks she is a lapdog and loves to be close to her people. She will need proper and slow introductions to new people or guests entering the home. In her foster home, Kiki has been great with housetraining and using her crate. She walks happily on a leash and has been making progress on ignoring distractions she encounters outside the house (like squirrels or other dogs). She can still react to other dogs on leash, but also has been great off leash playing with other dogs! She can get nervous meeting new people and encountering new things, so she needs her new family to be patient with her as she adapts to their home and neighborhood. She learns quickly, as she loves treats and is quite intelligent. She has done well playing with dogs in a yard at doggie day care, but she is way too interested in cats for their safety. She has not interacted much with children. She enjoys a calmer environment where she can just relax on a dog bed or the couch. Kiki likes the indoor life and will be your Netflix buddy for those Saturday night binge-a-thons! If Kiki sounds like your kind of girl, fill out an application, she can't wait to meet you!

Story
Zeus is a loving dog who just wants to be with his people. He loves walks and play, but he doesnt see the point in chasing a ball. He like soft and hard chew toys, going places and meeting people My husband and I grew to love Zeus when he belonged to our neighbors. We were concerned that he wasnt getting any social interaction during the past two years, just left alone in the backyard once his primary owner went to college. When his family surrendered him to animal control we couldnt risk him be euthanized, so we adopted him. As much as we love Zeus, having him has been difficult, both because he is too rambunctious fo be trusted around our cats, and because my husband has physical issues that keep him from playing with Zeus or taking him for walks when I am at work. Zeus still thinks, at around 70 pounds and almost 3 years old, that hes a puppy. He hasnt built up a lot of stamina yet, but he recovers quickly. Unfortunately, at 65+ my husband and I dont recover nearly as quickly!

Story
Hi there! My name is Josephine. Thanks for checking out my bio! I'm roughly 4 years old, but a true lady never reveals her age. Other than that, I don't have many secrets, and I have so much to tell you! I currently live with 3 other dogs, and I love all of them. I've also met some dogs on my various outings, and I think all of them have been super cool. I love to chew on toys and am happy to chill and hang out wherever you are, so I'm an ideal work from home buddy. I love pets, and I'm not shy about letting you know when I'm ready for them. No playing hard to get here-I'm a girl who knows what she wants! However, I don't like to yell or talk loudly and would much rather whisper sweet stories in your ear. In the mornings or when something exciting happens, I'll talk (grunt/grumble) up a storm, but overall, I'm a pretty quiet gal. I like to sleep in my pen at night and for naps during the day. A woman needs her beauty sleep. So, see...I'm sort of perfect! Now that I've won you over with all of my charm, let's get real with each other. I was in pretty rough shape when my foster humans found me, and they've done so much to help me. But just like everyone, I'm still a work in progress. I'm heartworm positive but have already completed all of my treatment. So now I just have to wait a few months to get retested and get that negative test result back to be officially heartworm free. Not so bad, right?! I also came to them unable to use my back legs. I do have feeling in them; they just don't like to talk to my brain right now. Maybe that's why I like to chat so much-to make up for my silly legs! The good news is I can get around really well with my front legs. I can scoot on the floor all by myself, or if you're up for some teamwork, I can walk around while you hold my back legs up with a sling. I also have a really cool wheelchair. Using it is a lot of work and can be tiring, but I love using it for short distances or to walk around the yard like an independent woman! I'm going to physical therapy twice a week to help my legs talk to my brain and keep them nice and strong. It's a lot of work, but I'm making impressive progress. And I'll need my new humans to keep up my therapy so I can keep it up! I'm now able to stand on my own and even take a step or two! Let's find out together how far I can go! Finally, I know it's sometimes considered impolite to talk about bathroom stuff. But with a pup like me, it's best to be up front. I know to do my business outside, but because I'm paralyzed in my back end, I have some trouble in that department. Poops are pretty easy most of the time. I just need extra help getting in position and balancing. Going pee is a little more difficult for me. It's hard for me to get everything out, so I'll need my new humans to assist me and express my bladder. But don't worry, my foster humans can show you how! And I like to think of all of this as a unique bonding opportunity! I know some of this might seem a bit overwhelming, but I have no doubt the perfect family is out there for me! Plus, my foster humans are ready to help answer any and all questions, so let's talk more and see if we're a match!

Usagi

American Staffordshire Terrier American Bulldog

Female, 7 yrs
Durham, NC
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Details
Spayed or Neutered,
Story
With her foster family, Usagi is an extremely affectionate little hunk of love. A master of snuggles, she will happily either lie on top of her humans, sprawl out next to them, curl up in the curve of their legs, or smoosh in-between them; big spoon, little spoon--she loves it all. One of her most favorite activities is belly rubs. She will flop onto her back, with paws dangling, and extort all the belly rubs she can. She loves her toys and all food. Usagi loves to chase a ball, and can run faster and jump higher/farther than most, which would make her great for any type of agility games and training. She occasionally gets the most adorable zoomies and will race in circles, grab a toy, and buck like a little bronco. She is sooooo endearing and provides endless entertainment. Usagi is very smart and eager to please. She has learned Sit, Down, Stay, Up, Roll over, Spin, Lay on your side, Go to your mat, Wait/Hold (for food or when doors open), Leave it, Come, Kennel up (Go to crate), and a few others! Here's one of the tricks she now knows: She can lie down, with treats lined up on her legs and muzzle, and then, when given the "Okay" cue, she will gobble them up! Usagi generally walks beautifully on a leash. She is a quick study and would likely be happy to learn any trick requested. These are just some examples of Usagi's amazing qualities and lovable personality. She is, however, very fearful of new things including dogs and people. She has made progress, but in her forever home Usagi will need a patient pet parent/family who will continue to work with her slowly while she builds confidence. Usagi will need to be the only animal in her new home. Her very rambunctious playstyle and bullish affection would also likely overwhelm small children. Usagi is getting braver but still needs very slow introductions to new humans. So, she would not do well in a house with lots of visitors or with people who travel a lot. Usagi completely melts her foster humans with her sweet, affectionate gaze, the press of one of her meaty little paws, or the smooshing of her blocky head against their cheeks. She will bring boundless love, affection, and laughs to her forever home, and needs loving, caring people to help her feel safe. PHYSICAL Usagi is an adorable stocky little mix--mostly white, with large brown patches and some small, dark polka dots. She is short and muscular with adorable chunky paws. Usagi has stunningly gorgeous blue and gold eyes, and a mottled pink and brown nose.
