Story
Meet Cotton Candy! Meet the sweetest, funniest, goofiest boy around. Cotton is a little over a year old and full of Aussie energy. Cotton is looking for a family that has a great sense of humor and an understanding of the needs of this fun breed.Cotton is a double merle as is evident by his fluffy, white coat. It also can impact vision and hearing. In Cotton's case he is completely deaf but does have some vision- mainly shadows. But this has ZERO effect on this boy and the wonderful life he will live!Cotton loves playing with other dogs and is generally fantastic with them- he is still a young, male Aussie that can't always read other dog's signals. Occasionally, he irks his companions but he's a quick study and rarely repeats a misstep. He has been as respectful as he's able to with the resident cats. Cotton loves all humans he meets- big and small!Cotton is a good boy in his crate and has (knocks on wood) figured out house training like a champ. Cotton loves to go for runs with his foster dad and is great at it. He'd be a wonderful training companion. Cotton is an active boy and needs to keep his brain and body busy. He's smart and willing. Training him is a joy!Cotton is looking for a family that will encourage, train and help him continue to live a wonderfully full life. Herding dog knowledge is helpful but not necessary if you are willing and able to provide him the stimulation he needs. He does need another, welcoming dog in his new home. The give him a familiar, easy way to learn his new environment.Cotton will be endless laughs and the occasional head shake for his new family. They will truly be the lucky ones!So cute! Super cute!Cotton has been neutered, microchipped and is up to date on his vaccinations. He has also tested negative for heartworm disease. His adoption fee is $450.00 plus sales tax. Please submit an adoption application if you have questions about Cotton or would like to meet him.

Story
Ethan is a steady little fellow who is more calm than the average pup his age, which is true of his whole litter. They are certainly playful but they are easy to live with and not overly demanding. He is making great headway on house breaking. He is crated at night and during the work day with a break during the day at about 5 hours. He is just a nice little boy who we thought was going to be bigger than it now appears. Ethan would likely fit in well with any family with the time and motivation to have a pup. He is darn cute and a foster and neighbor favorite. Ethan appears to be a Shepherd cross who was born 11-21-23. Mommy is a German Shep x and is pictured. Who was daddy? We have NO clue. We believe Ethan he will be in the upper end of mid-sized when full grown, likely 50-60#. He is white with black and tan markings and is quite handsome. Ethan and 5 siblings were surrendered because the owner wanted them to get good homes and felt she would not be able to find suitable owners. Puppy arrived in good health and well cared for. The little dog family had been living in a remote rural area and spent much of their time outdoors. Ethan is outgoing, friendly, and is used to being around other dogs and puppies. He loves to cuddle with the adult dogs and pups in the foster home. He walks well on a leash for a puppy and enjoys walks with his four legged friends. We are making best guess about breed. DNA testing from Dogs from the area often have 20 or more breeds in their lineage. Common breeds in the area are German Shepherds, Kelpies, Border Collies, labs, and Aussies. The DNA nearly always includes a wee bit of Chihuahua and some husky. The early months are when puppy learns the social skills needed to be a skilled dog in dealing with other dogs and a good citizen in the human world. Adopters should be committed to getting puppy into lots of new and different human social situations, hearing vacuums, trucks, and rattling garbage cans, meeting people who are clapping, laughing, with hats, tools, bikes and skate boards. AND puppy needs many opportunities to meet and greet dogs of all shapes, sizes and dispositions. Just sharing a home with another dog is not as much doggie socializing as puppy needs. If good canine social skills are not learned and maintained during these early months, it will be very difficult to ever master them. Puppy play dates, trips to the pet store, puppy socialization classes and later, obedience classes are particularly important. If all this doggie time and involvement seems like a good idea, you are up for a puppy! As always, a tired dog is a good dog. Ethan has been vaccinated and wormed. He will need two more routine vaccination plus rabies at the owner’s expense. The $375 adoption fee (check or cash) includes the cost of pup’s required spay/neuter at 6 months of age provided it is done by one of the PUP vets. We do place puppies outside the metro area but a plan for the required spay/neuter must be in place. We do not ship. If you are at least 21 years old and everyone in your household is on board with adopting a puppy, CALL 651-645-4370 between 7:00 am and 9:30 pm and we will return your call within 24 hours. If you elect to contact us via e-mail it may take several weeks for us to get back to you. Renters must provide proof that you are allowed to have a puppy. If you currently have a companion dog or cat please be prepared to provide a vet reference prior to adoption if requested.

Story
I am Keno. I am from Missouri. From the foster: Keno is timid, sweet and docile. He loves friendly dogs and stays near our resident dog like Velcro, but he is very shy with people. He will do best in a home with another friendly, confident dog to help him gain confidence and patient adopters who are willing to help him continue learning to trust. We are working on house training. Keno is an active boy who does well on leash and enjoys his daily walks, as well as running around in a fenced yard. He recently joined our rescue and still requires a harness and leash when outside in the yard, as he will rarely come inside on his own. We are working on making people less scary to him. Keno is 7.5 years old and has a heart murmur. He shows no sign of it slowing him down. He's an energetic boy. Medical Bio: "Hi! I'm Keno, my foster mom said the vet told her I have a heart murmur that they graded 3/6. X-rays did not show any signs of heart failure which is great news. The cardiologist report concluded normal heart size and a good prognosis even with the murmur. My adopters should plan on check ups every 6-12 months to monitor this going forward. Overall I am healthy and clear to be adopted and proceed with the dental procedure that I need in a few months. The vet will use heart safe anesthetic protocols to make sure everything goes smoothly. At my exam I was also treated for an ear infection and started on a weight loss plan which my future family should continue to make sure I can have a well lived and long life! The Bond Between will cover medical expenses for the dental and an upcoming ear recheck to make sure my infection was cleared. I can't wait to meet you and settle into my furever home!"

Story
Hi. I'm Stoat but my foster family named me Hamilton--"Hammy" for short because I'm such a ham! From the foster: Hammy is a bundle of joy and a heart-stealer from the moment you lay eyes on him. This pint-sized pup, with his fluffy fur and twinkling eyes is ready to shower his new family with boundless love and endless tail wags. While he is recovering from surgery (see note from the vet below), he doesn't let that stop him from living life to the fullest! He loves to play, snuggle, & explore. He's great with dogs and children of all ages. He hasn't been tested with cats, but given his personality, I imagine he would do well with cats who also like to play. Hammy knows some basic obedience and is quickly learning more (sit, lay down, shake). He is crate trained and potty trained too! Hammy is very adaptable to different lifestyles. The main consideration his new family should have, is someone committed to fulfilling his activity needs given his age and breed type. Hammy can't wait to meet his furever family! Could you be them? Please apply to learn more about Hammy and/or to setup a meet & greet. From the vet team My name is Stoat and I had a bit of an accident so I came back to SHH for the amazing vet care they were able to provide. I sustained a fracture in both of my rear legs that was promptly repaired by our orthopedic specialist. She recommended a recheck around early to mid January (and possibly one more recheck pending healing progress) and I will have to get my stitches out soon. The surgical implants that were placed will in most cases like mine not cause any problems, but in some cases may need to be taken out if they seem to be hurting me or my growth as I heal over the next 6-12 weeks. This would all be covered by SHH, but any other care outside of taking care of the fracture would be the responsibility of my new adopters. For a full 8 weeks after 12/5 when my surgery took place, my future adopters should take care to restrict my activity and exercise to allow for the best healing journey possible. Hope to meet you soon and settle into my new furever!

Story
A portion of Moana's s adoption fee has been sponsored by her friends at The Murray Fund. The adoption fee sponsorship credit of $400.00 will be applied during the contract process Hi! My name is Moana and I am an owner surrender. This special needs beautiful little girl has made wonderful strides in the 2 months that I've had her. She's getting stronger bit by bit. She is personality plus! She loves to snuggle, loves to play and just gets sooo very excited when you talk to her, get down on the floor to play with her and if the big resident dogs are even just near her. She has a feisty side, too, and does not like to be left out of anything!! She is making great progress in potty training and she'll usually vocally alert you-day or night- when she has to go...but know that she'll still have some accidents. At this point, she doesn't have the coordination to be upright to eat on her own so I still hold her securely in my lap to feed her several small meals a day and also to keep her hydrated (I soak her kibble and still give her some soft food. She will not drink straight water so we are still working on that and by soaking her kibble, it flavors the water and she'll drink it to get to the kibble.) She loves all people and dogs. She hasn't had contact with cats yet that I know of. She'll need flat, safe surfaces when she's in her wheels. She does best on carpets or rugs or grass when upright in her harness to practice balance, strength and walking. She'll need to continue strengthening her muscles and working on her balance. At this point, she cannot get up from the floor on her own. Once she's on her side, she can only move around by scratching/shuffling. She does great for car rides. She sleeps nicely in her soft sided kennel at night, only alerting me by whimpering once or twice per night that she has to go out to potty. She is one of the happiest pups that I've ever fostered and will give her forever family sooooo much love!! From the vet team: Hello! I arrived at Secondhand Hounds as part of the Fighter Fund program due to my Cerebellar Hypoplasia (CH) diagnosis. CH is a condition resulting from inadequate development of the cerebellum which causes lack of balance/coordination, ambulating, head bobbing, tremors, etc. The SHH Vet Team has provided my foster with physical therapy exercises to help gain strength but I will always have this condition. I have a wheel chair and a harness to help with movement but it is also recommended that my future adopter lay down rubber mats to help with my movement. My future adopter should understand my condition and monitor my health with a primary veterinarian. Also, I have an upcoming surgery with an opthamologist due to ablation of eyelashes which will freeze and kill the hair follicles to help prevent regrowth of these abnormal hairs. This surgery and eye recheck appointment will be covered by SHH as long as it is performed at Animal Eye Speciality Center/Secondhand Hounds Vet Center.
