Story
Meet Roadie, your next best friend on four legs! Roadie came to the shelter as a stray, so we don't know much about his background. And although he is shy, once he warms up he'll steal your heart. Here is what his foster family has to say: ""Roadie is timid, for sure. But in spite of his shyness, he is such an affectionate dog, flopping on the floor or ground, belly up, waiting for tummy rubs. And although he is shy, he shows no signs of fear aggression. He is a gentle baby that just needs a little space while he gets to know you. And once he knows you, look out! Roadie is like velcro - going everywhere you go, checking out whatever you are up to. He is the easiest foster we've had: Roadie is crate trained, good on a leash, not destructive, house trained, he rarely barks, and sleeps quietly through the night. Roadie shows no signs of separation anxiety and he gets along great with our dog, following her around while also giving her space and respect. He's no rude dude! Roadie is also highly food motivated."" Roadie will do best in a home that can provide a dependable routine with people that can respect his initial hesitancy. Roadie is bound to be an excellent buddy that is lovable and loyal.

Story
Cooper is a Courtesy Listing and is not housed at the Animal Shelter. Please note that the City of Bloomington Animal Care & Control accepts no responsibility for this pet. Potential adopters are responsible for communicating directly with the pet's guardian. Cooper is a 3-year-old, 65 pound, goofy and energetic boy. He lives in Bloomington, Indiana currently. Cooper is very smart and very responsive to training (we are in the process of working with a trainer). He is certainly a working dog but loves to play. Cooper is housebroken and crate trained. He’s very healthy and active. He tested positive for Lyme Disease when he was first adopted but he was treated and received a Lyme vaccination. He has never displayed any symptoms of Lyme Disease. He did have an accidental laceration last year from a tree root that required sedation and suturing, but he did well and is fully healed. We frequently go on 2-mile walks, and he loves to play in the fenced in backyard. He’s never been around children in his current home, but I don’t think he would do well around kids. Cooper needs an experienced owner, ideally one that knows cattle dogs and is a diligent trainer. Cooper is very loyal and loving towards me as his owner. He loves to snuggle and will spoon with me. He will sleep in bed with me, or he will sleep in his crate. He loves to play fetch or tug of war. He has a Jolly ball that is his favorite toy and is pretty good at entertaining himself. He does have a best dog friend that he was very gentle playing with but that best friend moved recently. He is basket muzzle trained. When going to new places, around new people, or new dogs, he needs to have his muzzle on. He is more docile when wearing his muzzle. He has a ton of energy and needs to play, or he will be aggressive (nipping at my other dog to try to play). He loves to roll around on his back and will sleep that way sometimes. Because of his high energy, he is on Trazadone twice a day that was started when he was in the shelter. However, I just met with a trainer, and she recommended talking with our vet about an anti-anxiety medicine instead of the sedative so I will be talking to the vet about that shortly. He reportedly always does well at the groomer and at the vet (when he is taken to the back when I’m not with him). The vet team says he is very sweet and calm with them. He is usually sweet with the boarding team, too, but do try to nip at their feet when they’re in his boarding area. I’ve never seen Cooper around cats, but I don’t think he would do well around cats as he loves to chase squirrels. I’ve made the difficult decision to rehome him because I don’t think he is thriving in this environment. He isn’t “working” and active in the way he needs. He needs a lot of physical and intellectual stimulation that I can’t give him in my small house and while I work full time. I love to have large groups of people and dogs over to my house and he doesn’t do well with large crowds, and I hate having to keep him in a room. I also must board him when I go on trips because I don’t have anyone that would be willing to stay with both of my dogs nor am I able to have both dogs stay at someone’s house that already has dogs. He would thrive in an environment where he has a ton of space (like a farm or large plot of land), where he can work (e.g., herding livestock), where there are fewer adults (maybe only two adult owners), and no kids. He can be so sweet and goofy with me, but we are no longer thriving well together. I love Cooper and I want him to have his best life and be happy. Please help me find him his best, forever home! I would love to meet virtually so I can evaluate his potential new home. I want to make sure his new owner is set up for success and both will be happy. I am willing to transport him wherever he needs to go if it means he will be happy. I don’t want an adoption or donation fee. If you are interested in Cooper Email or call and leave voicemail lblaurenblack@gmail.com, 812-360-2355. ***Please ignore the Apply to Adopt button for this pet & contact the owner directly***

Online Adoption Application › Please read all details in bio before applying for adoption!Link is our very special pup. He is a blind neuro boy and because of this it will take time and patience for him to adjust. He may act out in fear. He occasionaly has night terrors. He will need to get familiar with his new person's scent and voice to know they are near. We are looking for a special person, preferably who has experience with a blind pup and Is willing to discuss and work with him. Link is very fearful of other animals and would do best in a home with only adult humans and a fenced yard.  He will always be a pup. Link has an amazing personality and is very loving, especially to those who give him belly rubs and food (his two favorite things). He knows his crate is a safe place and gets very comfortable. He loves to run and play in the yard. He will be some work for the right individual who can help him blossom.  Link is medium in size, he has grown more than expected.CARE's adoption process is done by the applicant using their cell at the adoption meeting to access the Shelterluv platform to agree to the adoption contract and pay the $250 adoption fee by credit or debit card. Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.July 15, 2024, 1:03 am

Story
Jax is a sweet, loyal, good dog. He is 100% housetrained and never had an accident inside in his foster home. He's curious about everything, and could walk miles with you. He likes cats, but not dogs so much. He would need close supervision around children, but likely would be best in a home without. Jax has what we at the shelter call ""stranger danger."" and takes a while to trust people, but when he does, he's your best bud. Jax needs a person who has long experience with dogs, just plain loves them, and has the patience and understanding to see beyond his initial gruffness. If you are that person, you'd be getting a companion who will return your love and kindness 10-fold. Could you give Jax the chance for a home that he so deserves?
