Story
This is Waffles!  Waffles was found by a good samaritan who wasn't able to find her a home. Waffles was kept safe in boarding all summer but it wasn't the right environment for her. An employee took her home and immediately noticed the positive difference in Waffle. She is a very smart, loving young dog, about a year old. She is very athletic and has a lean muscular body. She loves people and dogs. She is prospering in her foster home where she has dogs to match her energy and a foster family that are teaching her how to be part of a family. She isn't super keen on her kennel but is learning that it is a safe place to hang out. She likes chewing on bones and playing with toys. She has been nicknamed "Door stop" because she is always beside you when you leave a room (a behavior that she is working on). She loves to hold down the couch and if given the opportunity will gladly keep you company in bed. She redirects easily and wants to be a good girl. She is not food or toy aggressive. She has the makings to be a great family dog or outdoor partner for an active person. She just needs the right person to continue her training and development. Waffles has been spayed, is current on her vaccinations and microchipped.  Her adoption fee is $550    and includes her transportation to her new home in VA.  SHE IS IN A LOVING FOSTER HOME IN MEMPHIS, TN AND WILL BE TRANSPORTED TO HER NEW HOME ONCE ADOPTED!  New Beginnings Animal Rescue uses  a licensed and registered USDA transport company.      If you would like to apply to adopt Waffles, please fill out our online application here:  http://www.newbeginningsanimalrescue.net.  Any questions, please email us at:  newbeginnigs_animalrescue@yahoo.com.   THANK YOU FOR CONSIDERING ADOPTING A RESCUED PET!

Story
AVAILABLE for ADOPTION! Waynesboro, Va. On behalf of Virginia Paws for Pits, We are proud to announce that Simba is ready to start the search for his forever home! Simba is a 6-7 year old mini-man who is love-a-BULL, hug-a-BULL and adopt-a-BULL! This little guy packs a whole lot of personality and excitement into just 50 pounds of sheer cuteness! A product of divorce, Simba found himself returned to our local shelter where he was adopted from as a puppy. Short staffed and overwhelmed, this was not the place for an active, intelligent dog to thrive and so he languished for four months. When Virginia Paws for Pits heard he was at risk, they sprang into action and made his plight public! Because we had an extra spot in our kennel, we were happy to be able to give Simba a place to hang while we all work together to help him find a new family. Simba is full of love and adores people! He's full of life and energy and NEEDS a fenced yard to romp and play and express his joy! He is not good with cats or small animals. He has lived with a dog in the past and seems to be ok with other dogs but....he is very excitable and would need slow introductions, supervision and caution to place in a home with other dogs. Simba's not so lovely quality is pulling on his leash like an idiot when he is over excited. That's why he has to have a fenced yard and an owner who is willing to make sure he gets the balance of exercise and calming structure that he needs to be successful. (No small kids, please. They would be over stimulating for Simba and he might accidentally bowl them over like pins at the bowling alley.) Simba is available to adopt through Virginia Paws for Pits. He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and treated for internal and external parasites. His adoption fee is $200 which helps them care for all of the dogs who enter their program AND pays for two visits with Christopher Kirtley of Southern Hospetality, LLC. located in Afton, Va (therefore, a local adopter is strongly preferred.) Please apply to give Simba the life we know he deserves at www.virginiapawsforpits.org or email applyvpfp@gmail.com for more information. Please help us find Simba a family by sharing this post far and wide!

Story
This is the hardest thing I have ever had to do. Minnow has been like one of my kids. However, now I have a 4 month old and she is struggling with the lack of attention. I am trying everything I can, but I simply cannot give her the life she deserves and she's acting out a little because of it. She's a sweetheart who just wants to love and be loved. I wasnt expecting to be a single mom with two dogs and im just not able to give them the life they deserve. She loves playing ball more than any dog I have ever met- seriously, she will spend HOURS chasing the ball. She can be a bit anxious so she definitely needs somebody with patience and who will give her love. She was rescued on the day she was meant to be euthanized in Detroit. I love her so much but I want the best life for her and I am no longer providing that. I would love to see her go to a home where she can thrive. My older dog can have some reactivity issues, so I know he will be harder to rehome as much as I hate to separate.

Story
Hey! I'm Rosemary (but pretty much everyone calls me Rosie, which seems to fit me better anyway). For those who don't know me yet, I thought I'd share a few details about myself here... I'm what they call a "low rider" because, well, look at me! Don't worry, though, what I lack in stature I make up for personality! (Just wait until you see my "excitement run"!). After winning the battle against heartworm this winter I've gotten to move my bod a lot more, so now I'm just about the perfect amount of "chonky"! Wouldn't you agree? I don't like to talk a lot about my past because it wasn't so great, but it has shaped me a bit so I need to be honest with you. I like other dogs...well, some of them...sometimes...but sometimes I don't so...I don't think I should live with one. And people...well, they can scare me a bit, too. (Not YOU, of course!). I LOVE people who give me a little time and space to get to know them. Those people are my favorite! BTW, I've been told I have kind of a serious face, but don't let the cropped ears fool you. I get zoomies that will make you laugh so hard you cry and when it comes to cuddling on the couch I'm a total pro. So what do you think - are you ready for a sweet little house hippo ready to wiggle and waddle her way into your heart and home?

Story
Justice is ready!!!! He is 48 pounds of pure delight. He loves all people and all dogs. He loves kids and would love a fun active family. He loves to go for walks, hikes, swims and he loves to ride in the car or the side by side. He does chase the cows and horses so we don't recommend a home with anything he chases. If you have an adult dog and want another adult that will 100% get along, this is your guy. We think he was born about January of 23 so he is a perfect age. He loves to fetch and have belly rubs and is finished with that destructive puppy phase of life yet he has a puppy attitude. He is so very sweet and a fun guy. If you think you are fun and active enough for this guy you will need to visit our website at funnyfarmpets.org to read all about our rescue and how the adoption and transport process works and to submit the application. He is fostered in TN and will travel once his adoption is finalized. His adoption fee is $325 and transport is an additional $200. He is fully vetted, happy and ready to join his forever family. This sweet boy was found on the Supreme Court steps. Apparently he was seeking justice for his past treatment. He is badly scarred and very thin but oh so sweet and friendly. He is on antibiotics now and getting all the grub he needs. He loves other dogs and is very sweet and gentle. He appears young. Maybe about a year old. He is only 36 pounds now but needs to gain at least 10 pounds. He will be a perfect medium size dog who will be a great addition to almost any home.

Story
Gypsy was a stray. A man in Raymond, Mississippi found her and took her to the pound. They were going to euthanize her, and he took her home. She did not like his cats, so he surrendered her to us. She LOVES to run and play, and she needs a lot of exercise. She does good with most all dogs, but she is shy when she meets new people. Gypsy does not like cats! Once she warms up to people, she just wants to give kisses! Her ideal home would be a person or family that has a large yard for her to run and play in. She would be the best dog to do activities with or just cuddle with on the couch. She should be fine in a large, fenced yard. She can be hyper at times but settles down nicely inside with a chew toy. Gypsy is in boarding now, and she desperately needs a forever family!! We use the most animal-friendly transport on the road. Rescue Riders Pet Transport.

Story
This girl was found at an auto shop, hence her name. She is very friendly and playful. She is around other dogs her age and does well. She likes to be in charge so she would do best in a home with calmer, submissive dogs. She will need puppy training as we aren’t sure if she has had any. She likes toys and loves to show them off to people! She is good around kids but is excitable so will need to learn how to be around little ones. She is learning how to be on a leash and does okay in a kennel. She’s just an active girl who needs an active family to keep her busy. She is just looking for fun times and a family to share them with her. She is being fostered in TN but we do transport using the most animal-friendly transport on the road. Rescue Riders Pet Transport. We transport every weekend alternating between the Northeast and the Midwest.
