Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Please contact Cheryl (lovemy4eskies@gmail.com) for more information about this pet.Casper has come back in to rescue after 12 years as his owner is no longer able to care for him.  He seems to like men more than woman however he does spend time with me but he prefers my boyfriend.  He loves to take walks and seems to do pretty good. He is house broke but may have some accidents in the beginning as he is getting used to things and if other dogs in the home and if you're gone too long.  He has a backyard to run around in and has not tried to get out but it's best to make sure your fence is secured if you are going to let him out there unattended.  He tries to play with my senior blind boy (who did not play when he could see) so he would do best I think in a home that has a dog he could play with.  He does pretty good with children over 10 but he is skittish so not sure how he would do with younger kids. I am not sure he will ever get over being skittish.   I also did a DNA test on him and he is as follows:        54% Australian Cattle Dog        42% American Eskimo Dog        2% Chihuahua        1% Border Collie        1% Pomeranian Casper is a special boy and I will be looking for the perfect home for him.  If your interested please email me at lovemy4eskies@gmail.com He is being fostered in Ridgley, MD.Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet. Whenever possible Eskie Rescuers United tries to adopt out its dogs locally (or at least to adopters in adjoining states to where I'm being fostered). Please note that ERU processes LOCAL adoption applications before considering those from out of state. If I'm not local to you, as explained above, and you really have your heart set on me, you will have to make special arrangements so ERU can get me to you safely (for example, flying me to you at your own expense, or paying a transport group to drive me to you). Note: We may ask that you to make a donation to cover transport costs if the distance is great and we have trouble finding transport drivers.There is an adoption fee required; and, please be aware, Eskie Rescuers United will not adopt out its dogs as outdoor dogs.

Story
Introducing Zara, a delightful one-year-old bundle of affection and unwavering devotion. Zara's journey began when we saved her from a high-kill shelter in Texas, narrowly escaping a grim fate. It's evident that someone may have treated her unkindly, as she initially displays timidity (cowers) around unfamiliar people. However, with time, love, and a reassuring touch, Zara will blossom into the best version of herself. In her nurturing foster home, Zara is flourishing, thanks to her work-at-home foster parents who provide ample human interaction and the attention she craves. She's a snuggling pro, always seeking reassurance and showering you with boundless love. While Zara prefers not to be confined in a kennel at any time, she's potty trained and she will get used to the kennel once she realizes that it is not used as punishment. Zara can be a bit picky with other dogs, but she does have some doggy friends she adores! She is too interested in cats and tries to get to them, so a home without cats is best. It's important to note that she's best suited for a home with children over the age of 10 as she doesn't always realize her size. She will playfully nibble on you when she wants someone to pet her.  Zara needs to be in an environment where those around her understand and respect her boundaries as she continues to heal and learns to trust that she'll never experience harm again. When Zara knows and trusts you, she'll eagerly leap onto you, expressing her love through her endearing, expressive eyes and a hug. Zara delights in a balanced blend of indoor and outdoor play and finds pure joy in basking in the warm sun. If you're in search of an affectionate and loyal companion perfectly suited to a work-from-home lifestyle or an active where you’ll bring your dog with you all over, Zara is the ideal addition to your life. DISCLAIMER- Breed type is determined based on general appearance and behavioral characteristics and cannot be guaranteed unless DNA test results or AKC registration were provided at intake. ***MOST OF OUR DOGS ARE FOSTERED IN TEXAS, BUT AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION AND TRANSPORT OUT OF STATE. Read below for more information. Our dogs are transported to a predetermined location agreed upon by the rescue. The adoption contract and fee are finalized prior to transport. As a Pep's Pals Rescue direct adoption, the adoption interview/meet and greet occurs on video call (Skype, FB Messenger call, Facetime, etc).  Our adoption fee is $450 plus health certificate and transport (varies by location). This fee includes all current vaccinations, deworming, microchip (additional $12.99 registration fee required at time of adoption), fecal analysis, spay/neuter for dogs 6 months & older, and a heartworm test if over 6 months old. All dogs are current on flea/tick and heartworm prevention. A health exam will be completed and a health certificate issued by a veterinarian within 10 days of transport.

DISCLOSURE: The adoptable pets in our program are still in the care and custody of owners who wish to re-home their pet. Owners have enlisted Rescue Well to provide marketing and screening of applicants as a service, free of charge. All fees and adoption conditions are determined by the owner. We advise that adopters do not send payment or deposits for pets prior to adopting.  ***** Bertha is an Australian Cattle Dog/English Pointer, is 4.5yo, weighs 60lbs, is spayed, is up to date on her vaccines, and is not microchipped.  Bertha knows how to sit upon command, loves car rides and loves playing with other dogs when she calms post-intro. Bertha's guardian explains why he has made the difficult decision to rehome her:   "I took in Bertha after my father passed.  I am now the sole caretaker for my mother and am unable to provide Bertha the attention she needs.  She needs a yard to run around in.  I live in a condo and am unable to provide the best home for her.  She always wants to play with my geriatric Yorkie with a heart murmur which causes him stress. in addition,  I am allergic to bertha.  I really want to find her the best situation possible." Bertha's guardian offers a brief medical history:  "She was once hit by a car, but recovered with no lingering effects." Bertha's guardian states the following regarding children:  Although Bertha hasn't lived with children, her guardian recommends her living with children, stating "She wants to meet them, say hello, and be petted".   Bertha's guardian states the following regarding dogs:  Bertha has lives with a dog, so her guardian recommends her living with dogs, stating "She always wants to play with other dogs.  She can be a little aggressive at first, but then warms up to the other dog".  Bertha's guardian states the following regarding cats:  Bertha hasn't lived with or otherwise been around cats, so her guardian doesn't recommend her living with cats. Bertha's guardian describes her as: Very active Playful Friendly Likes to be touched Affectionate Indoor/Outdoor dog (primarily lives indoors) House-Trained Likes men Likes women Separation anxiety Bertha's guardian describes her ideal future home:   "Bertha would benefit from a home with a big fenced yard in the country where she could run around.  Bertha would love a home where she is part of the family and the more attention she gets the better.  She would benefit from a patient companion dog who also likes to play outdoors."

Story
MEET SUGAR! (Descriptor: Sweet) This active and very playful ~1yr old little girl was rescued from an underserved shelter where she was scheduled for humane euthanasia due to overcrowding and absolutely no fault of her own. This harsh reality is unbeknownst to her - she is full of life and adores people and other dogs! We believe her to be a mixed Cattle Dog, due to her appearance and behaviors. At about 40 pounds, she is a medium sized and healthy young pup. Sugar is aptly named because her foster mom describes her as “super sweet”. Her foster family has a farm and sweet Sugar has been savoring a life with her humans, other dogs and farm animals. She doesn’t leave her people and is friendly to strangers. She is house broken and uses a doggie door, so is not being crated while in foster. Instead she sleeps happily on a dog bed. She has excellent recall and is horse and chicken safe. Like some of us, car rides can make her car sick so her foster family have been taking her on short trips to help build up her tolerance.  Sugar absolutely loves other dogs and plays well with both male and female dogs after proper introductions, but her favorites are the playful young dogs. Sugar would make an excellent family or farm dog for an active family; small kids would probably be fine if you understand herding breeds (may “nip” heels). Please no homes that intend to crate all day. Sugar’s adoption donation fee is $425, which includes spay/neuter, routine vetting and a microchip. You can apply for Sugar by filling out our online application, which is found on our website www.tarashouse.org. Please email us at info@tarashouse.net with any questions.April 16, 2024, 8:50 pm

Story
Kira came to our home in September 2023 and we fell in love with her energy, curiosity and playfulness. She is 4 years old with a beautiful coat and would do well in a home where she is the queen. She is anxious which is typical of her breed and needs an owner who will watch her and is in sync with her to grab her attention when she gets bored. She is smart, will scratch the door when she needs to pee and knows to poop outside. She loves walks and is VERY food motivated. Unfortunately she does not like our 3 year old cattle dog who has been with us since she was a puppy. I am a single mom with two kids and trying to pinpoint the exact moment when the ladies get annoyed with each other has been very difficult despite ensuring separate spaces, separate times for walks, using a thunder shirt... I am heartbroken to have made the decision to surrender Kira and which I could find a way to keep her but she deserves more attention and support than I can give her.
