Story
Looks like: Toy Australian Shepherd Male, 10 years old (estimated), 11 pounds Gorgeous blue-eyed Blu is always on the go! This little guy has loads of energy to burn and then some. He definitely enjoys his playtime and going on outings, but he is also a master in relaxation and has some serious snuggling skills. One of his special moves is inching his way up your body when you are sitting on the couch and getting his nose right into the crook of your neck. Absolutely adorable if you are into this kind of intimacy. When meeting new people, he may be a little shy at first, but will warm up quickly especially if they hold him or give him a treat. He does not enjoy being around younger children and cats; however, he likes interacting with other dogs, preferably smaller ones. While he could absolutely coexist with another dog, he would probably not mind at all being the sole canine in the house and hogging all the attention for himself. He sleeps sweetly and quietly through the night. Blu can be reactive on leash, especially to larger dogs, bicycles and joggers passing by too closely for his comfort. He loves to go on car rides and would much rather come along than staying home alone. He is working on overcoming his separation anxiety, but in the meantime he would definitely prefer if his human companions were home most of the time or can take him wherever they go. This good boy responds well to training as he is eager to please, listens well, and is a quick learner. Sweet Blu is very much looking forward to a warm lap to call his own and in return he will be the most devoted friend that anyone could ever hope for. Blu first joined Peace of Mind when his senior guardian became ill and sadly could not take him to the facility where they moved. He had to come back to POMDR after being adopted when the other dog in his adoptive home became unwell and his adopter couldn't manage his training needs and her other dog's medical needs.

Story
Introducing Phantom! This sweet pup came into our care with his two siblings as a result of an accidental breeding. Phantom was born completely blind, but this doesn't slow him down! He is quite the gentle pup and uses those little ears of his to lead the way and he's adapted great to this new style of life. His foster let us know that Phantom has a knack for finding his way into your heart, as he'll happily sit or lay by, or even on your feet, offering a sense of comfort and warmth. His funny and playful nature will keep you entertained, and he's always up for a game of follow-the-leader, either by lead or scent. This water-loving pup is a true "water puppy," loving the joy of swimming and playing in the river. Blindness doesn't slow Phantom down; in fact, it adds to his charm and resilience. He navigates the world with grace and enthusiasm, proving that love knows no boundaries. His playful demeanor extends to other dogs, and he's known to be good with cats but would prefer a home with an experienced adult owner or a family with older children who have previously worked with special needs dogs (preferably blind dogs). His future owner would be someone who is home throughout the day with him, able to continue positive training and socialization for his safety. Pre-registration for general obedience classes is a requirement for adoption. Phantom is currently in foster care. Meet and greets can be arranged once your online application has been approved.

Story
Introducing Grace, AKA Amazing Grace! This sweet pup came into our care with her two siblings as a result of an accidental breeding. Grace was born completely deaf and blind, but this doesn't slow her down! Her amazing nose leads her on adventures out on the trail, in the mountains, and into any body of water, making her a true explorer at heart. Learning through scent and touch, Grace has adapted beautifully to her surroundings. Her ultra-sweet nature shines through, making her a joy to be around. Grace is not only super playful but also remarkably resilient, she can stand up to any dog while playing and absolutely loves a good game of tug of war. Grace's housebroken manners are impeccable, provided she knows the location of her designated potty spot and has access to the outdoors. Remarkably, she never loses her temper, showcasing her gentle and patient disposition. Grace does great with both dogs and cats, but any introductions would have to be done slowly and over time. Grace's future adopters would preferably be an experienced owner or family with older children that have previously owned a special needs animal (preferably blind or deaf). It is vital that her positive training is continued not only for her socialization but for her safety as well. There's more to Grace than just her resilience; she's a true kissy face lovebug. Her affectionate nature knows no bounds, and her presence is a heartwarming reminder that love and joy can thrive in any circumstance. Pre-registration for general obedience classes is a requirement for adoption. Grace is currently in foster care. Meet and greets can be arranged once your online application has been approved.

Looks like: Australian Shepherd mix Male, 12 years old (estimated), 52 pounds Resilient Doogie has sure been through a lot in his life, but we're grateful that his rough past is behind him. This sweet boy gets along great with other dogs and has even lived with kitties in the past. Although he was abused in a former home, he doesn't hold that against other humans and adores his people friends. This sweet gentleman was surrendered to a shelter after his guardian's caretaker learned of the abuse. We're grateful to be here to see Doogie off to a better life.
