Story
Unfortunately, I am forced to find a new home for my wonderful dog as I have been diagnosed with severe allergies to my pet. He is a 4 1/2 year old male and a mixed breed of Aussie Shepard, Boarder Collie, etc. He is very smart, great with children, housebroken, healthy, leash trained and a great companion . He is also up to date with all vaccinations and has routine check ups with the vet. He is a working dog with high energy and would best fit in an active family. Daily walks are essential. There is no adoption fee to the right family.

Story
Meet Mosey Fields,  a very special  puppy  who is  just under one year old. Mosey has a neurological condition, most likely Cerebral Hypoplasia, which makes him a special-needs dog. Despite his challenges, Mosey is a joyful and big-hearted pup. We recently put him in a jacuzzi with a swim vest, and he learned a lot about connecting his body with his brain. Initially, Mosey used to squirm on the floor like a reptile, but now  he  walks and romps  around  without a harness. Although he still does well with a harness for stability, he can now walk  by himself  in a large carpeted bedroom area. Mosey has made  great  progress -  he  has learned to track, make eye contact, jump on and off the couch, and loves to cuddle. He has also been playful around other dogs and adores people. This little fighter will benefit from a wheelchair and  will  thrive in a loving home. Consider making him a part of your family, and he will return the love and continue to grow into the best version of himself. If you're interested in adopting Mosey, please fill out an application at www.doggiebonez.com. You can also check out our social media pages on Instagram (@Doggie_Bonez_Inc_) and Facebook (Doggie Bonez) to see more of Mosey's cuteness. Our dog adoption fee, which includes vaccinations, fecal testing, wellness exams, microchipping, spaying, or neutering, is $500. If adoption isn't feasible, please consider fostering one of our pups. We are a volunteer-run non-profit dog rescue and always welcome new short or long-term doggie foster families. Doggie Bonez will provide you with everything you need, including dog food, a bed, toys, medical attention (if required), and more. So, if you're interested, please visit www.doggiebonez.com to see all of our available dogs who need a foster family while waiting for their forever home and complete the foster application.June 18, 2024, 1:06 pm

🐾Olaf is a 1.5yr old Australian shepard mix. He loves other dogs of all sizes. He is between 40-50 lbs. Walks good on a leash and has great recall when running in yard to come into the house. He is also kennel trained but would prefer a couch to lay on😁 He doesn't like the sound of crying infants(he will cry) so he'd do best in a home of 3yrs+. Olaf is neutered and up to date on shots, microchipped. Available for adoption today. $200 adoption donation but negotiable for the perfect family.❤️

Story
Boris is a really sweet and kind dog. He is great with our son. However, he does need further training and exercise which we are not able to provide for him. He loves to cuddle and loves the other dog he lives with. However (please read) he is leash reactive and we does bark in the house at passing people. We believe he needs an active person who would like to hike or run with him and who has the time or experience to train him. We love Boris and want to make sure he finds a really great home. We would ideally like somewhere where we could arrange play dates with the other dog we have.

Story
Meet Adoptable Lola! She’s a very affectionate and happy 3 year old Australian Shepherd/Sheepdog mix, around 80 lbs. She’s potty trained, and loves her crate. She has had some professional basic training. She is ecollar, muzzle, and prong collar trained. All these tools come with her to continue her push-button training. She knows sit, down, heel, leave it, wait, out, come, no, and crates on command. She also waits for the release command to eat. The guardian breeds in her makes her an amazing watch dog. She’s well behaved, and obedient. She loves to hike in the hills, and on the trail she has excellent off-leash recall. She also knows wait (and will stop and wait for you to catch up). She knows out (and will get out of the bushes in case of snakes). She’s great in the car for long periods on road trips, and the perfect camping/exploring  partner. Lola loves fetch, as well as playing with her toys, although tug is her very favorite type of play (if you’re strong enough). Lola was attacked by an off leash dog, so she has leash reactivity/fear of unknown dogs. She is working hard to overcome her fears, and needs an experienced adopter to continue her training back to neutral/non-reactivity. She is good with other calm dogs after proper introductions, and currently lives harmoniously with 3 males at her foster house. Sweet Lola can’t wait to meet you!  Interested in adopting this pet?
