Story
Zeke is a great and loving dog. My wife adopted him when he was a young puppy, and he has been a part of our family for 10 years! He has some anxiety issues, which have caused him to become a little snappy with most strange dogs, though he does occasionally meet friends he likes to play with, and has gotten along fine with our other dog for the last 5 years. He takes anxiety meds daily, which seem to really help him. He loves people, but is being chased around our house by our 2 year old toddler, and because of this spends almost all his time outside. He has never growled or snapped at her, but we don't feel comfortable with how much he does not like being around her. He is getting older, and occasionally has a small limp that the vet diagnosed as mild arthritis. Despite this he LOVES walks, and frequently comes with us on hikes. He loves playing in water and snow, but really hates thunderstorms. He really likes meeting new people and trying and get them to scratch his fave spot.

Story
#### Look at this face and those eyes! She could not be more beautiful! Tipping the scales at 26 pounds, Cleo is a 2 year old Miniature Australian Shepherd Mix. Cleo loves other dogs and is comforted by their presence. Once she gets to know a dog, she becomes quite playful with them! She requires a home with another confident dog to help her transition into home life and feel safe. Cleo is still learning that humans aren't scary. She readily approaches people for treats, but she is very skittish and easily startled by movements or noises. She is not yet comfortable being pet, but our behavior team is working with her to create a positive association with being touched. She takes time to feel comfortable around people, but once she does, you have a loyal best friend for life! Cleo wiggles her butt and squeals excitedly when she sees her closest human friends. She even plays with her favorite humans outside: play bowing, zooming, and romping all around with a smile on her face! She wants to be near her people all the time, and can often be seen following her human friends around outside or snoozing peacefully beside them. This sweet girl is so ready to be around her forever family.Cleo has recently learned how to walk on a leash and has been contently sniffing and exploring the outside world. With practice and the help of a confident canine sibling, we think she could blossom into a wonderful hiking buddy. She will still require a home with a 6ft fence to keep her safe as she can be a flight risk when she is spooked. Cleo needs a patient and calm adult-only household who will allow her to settle in at her own pace. She is very cautious but has made significant progress in the last few months. We are confident she will continue to blossom in her perfect home. If you would like to meet this precious girl, please apply at NMDR.org.- - - - - -Prior to being rescued, many of our dogs have experienced minimal socialization. As a result, there is often an adjustment period when learning about life as a family pet. We typically do not adopt to homes with young children. Homes with older children will be considered on an individual basis. Common skills such as house training and leash walking will often take extra time. Patience, understanding and a gentle hand are a must. The great news is, many of these dogs come around with patience and being a part of their rehabilitation is an extremely rewarding experience.

Story
####This handsome guy is Ollie. He is an almost three-year-old Miniature Australian Shepherd weighing 22 pounds. Ollie is working on trust and socialization skills with the support of our Behavior/Enrichment Team and they have discovered he is a musician at heart - he looooves music. This softie loves to be serenaded. When his favorite staff members turn on the radio and sing to him, he relaxes, lies down, and takes it all in. Ollie also likes to get in a little screen time here and there and currently his favorite channel is DOGTV. Ollie needs a home with experienced, patient adopters. With the right environment and a loving family, Ollie will blossom, and will love becoming a treasured member of a forever home filled with love and companionship. He is coming up to quite a few volunteers now for treats, and he has even started accepting gentle scratches on the chest.If you would like to meet sweet Ollie, please apply at NMDR.org-------Prior to being rescued, many of our dogs have experienced minimal socialization.

Story
Hi there! I'm Everett, a 26-pound male Australian Shepherd. I might be a little shy at first, but once I warm up to you, I'll happily approach you for some attention. Treats are the way to my heart, and I'll be your best friend if you have some to share.I enjoy the company of other calm dogs and prefer to stay away from the high-energy ones. I'm a pretty chill fellow who just wants to hang out with a new friend. I've made a great transformation since my first grooming. When I came in, I was extremely matted and in pain, but after being groomed, my personality truly blossomed. I walk on a leash freely now and feel much more confident and happy. You'll know I'm excited by my joyful butt wiggles!Are you ready to be my new best friend? Let's enjoy some relaxed, happy times together!- - - - -Prior to being rescued, many of our dogs have experienced minimal socialization.
