Story
This gorgeous girl is Scarlet Love. Scarlet is VERY shy at first but has such a lovable personality, she’s naturally joyful, but incredibly calm. She’s so sweet and affectionate, quick to ask for belly rubs and so tolerant- this girl is happy to go with the flow. She is so obedient, eager to please and highly trainable. She is currently just over a year old, just 36 pounds, and we think she may be a German Shepherd and Australian Shepherd mix, but with rescue, exact breed and age are always unknown to us, and cannot be guaranteed. Fall in love with Scarlet here: https://youtu.be/4RZHP5Zh-8Y?si=Lmf3AbDleft-sKI5 Once Scarlet settled in and decompresses in her new home she will enjoy snuggling up on the couch. Once she’s on the couch, that’s where she wants to stay, calm and content. She’s looking forward to movie nights with her forever family! Scarlet isn’t the most playful, but she can be convinced to play! Scarlet is very tolerant with other dogs, shows her belly and is very communicative with other dogs through her body language. Scarlet does well with dogs both big and small, she’s a sweetheart through and through. Scarlet has cohabitated with cats before, and here at the rescue she was cat-tested by our behavior team. She’s very tolerant of cats, barely interested and happy to peacefully coexist. Our behavior team recommends her for a home with cats! Scarlet is such a joy to be around, so affectionate and attentive. She’s highly intelligent. While she knows some basic commands already, and could happily live the rest of her life with only this level of training, her intelligence and eagerness to please will make her a very enjoyable dog to train. Scarlet will make a great hiking buddy, with her stamina, love for exploring, and attentiveness to her person. Scarlet is not too picky about her forever home, she’s just ready to find her forever family. With daily walks, Scarlet could do well in an apartment. Scarlet could live with cats, dogs, or as an only-pet. Scarlet has not spent much time with kids, to our knowledge, but has such a sweet and tolerant personality, and will likely do well with them. We are willing to test this dog with anything you need us to in order to ensure she’s the perfect match for you! We can make anything happen! Just let us know. Please email Kristin@threelittlepittiesrescue.org with any questions.

Story
****Fostered in the PNW (Everett, WA) and available for Meet & Greets**** Meet Sierra New Caney! This adorable 2-month-old Australian Shepherd/ German Shepherd Dog mix (we think- it's always a guess with rescue!), currently a petite 10.3lbs., is a bundle of joy waiting for her forever home. Though her breed is a best guess by the rescue, one thing's for sure—Sierra is 100% lovable! This puppy is from a part of the US where puppies are regularly euthanized. So, this puppy needs you! If you choose a puppy from this rescue, it saves their life AND it also allows us to save the life of another in its place. One great thing about puppies is they are blank slates (cue Taylor Swift)! Because of this Sierra is great with kids and other dogs, making her a perfect fit for a lively household. Watch the video and see her play with some other puppies, explore and make friends with Athena- an adult pittie mix! She's still young enough to learn to live with cats, so she's open to making new furry friends. Sierra's favorite activities include playing, eating, napping, and being held—she's the perfect companion for both fun and cuddles. Sierra is still young so she will need a family that can commit to training, socialization and all the dedication puppyhood requires. Her new family will need to continue with potty and crate training and daily exercise. We require a commitment from adoptive families to crate train their new puppy. When old enough, they will be perfect to go on walks and show off around your neighborhood. If you're looking for a sweet, playful, and affectionate puppy to complete your family, Sierra New Caney is the one for you! Adopt this little cutie and fill your home with endless love and joy. Apply Here: https://adopt.animalsfirst.com/animal/62cc8e128b02916730334440/667ed155cc6118418e00fed1 E-mail kathleen@threelittlepittiesrescue.org with any questions. Available for adoption to anywhere in the US. We transport near or into NV, MT, CO, UT, ID, OR, WA, Canada, and now the East Coast! Our dogs and cats are brought to you in style by a private, air conditioned 3LP-run van or bus transport, two drivers, and 2 onboard attendants providing 24-hour care. Pick up day is unforgettable! You will get to follow along on their journey through a private FB Event page, where you will see photos, have the opportunity to connect with other adopters, and receive updates and constant communication along the way. We can help to find the closest transport pick up location to you! The adoption fee of $900 includes all vetting per our veterinarian: DAPP (2 to 4 depending on age and time in the program), Bordetella, Rabies vaccine, multiple broad spectrum deworming treatments, spay/neuter surgery, flea prevention, 2-6 months of heartworm preventative according to age, heartworm testing and heartworm treatment if applicable, extended medical such as dentals, eye surgeries, and orthopedic surgeries prior to adoption when suggested by our partner vets, a microchip with free lifetime registration, a high quality nylon Martingale collar for dogs over 4-months old, a health certificate deeming the pup healthy for travel, cost of transport*, and many priceless years of love and loyal companionship! *WE ARE TOLD THAT WE GO ABOVE AND BEYOND MEDICALLY. This is the feedback we tend to get, although we cannot guarantee perfect health. *To fully vet a dog in the PNW at many vets it would be upwards of $1,800 just to fix, vaccinate, chip, etc. The adoption fees charged by our rescue do not cover our expenses medically for each animal, but we offset costs with donations. Your adoption fee is considered a donation towards actual costs. Why adopt from Three Little Pitties? The stray and animal overpopulation in the Greater Houston area is the highest in the nation.

Story
Meet Pax! He is a sweet, very well-trained handsome 3.5 yo Australian shepherd with a strong herding drive. He has great recall and enjoys pleasing his owner. He loves his people and makes the cutest noises when cuddled. He is very expressive when he likes or dislikes something. Pax is tenacious about his boundaries and does not like to be pet by strangers. He does well around other people with a toy to distract him and a safe space that he knows is his. Limitation to new people once in his new home would be helpful to settle in as he takes a while to warm up. We found him to be anxious settling in during the first couple days, but then proudly owning his place. He does very well with a routine and will remind you of the small things- like drying his paws before coming into the house- should you forget the habits you introduced. He does great in the dog park and on trailruns and walks staying close-by but playing with other dogs. He does not like fast moving noisy things.

Story
Hello, Canada!  My name is Barbie and I just arrived in Vancouver on July 7 2024!   A wee update:  My fosters say I am super adoptable!  I am so sweet and gentle and friendly.  In less than a week, I am housetrained and am learning the commands of Come and Sit.  I am adaptable, curious, and engaged.   A couple of times, when dogs were being bully-ish towards me, I just stayed centered, not aggressive or submissive.  Oh yes - I am super cuddly, even all night long if you want.  Just waiting for my forever family to notice me and take me home. Here is a little info about me:Breed: Shepherd/Husky mixAge: 2.5 years (born December 2021)Gender: femaleWeight: 50 pounds (22 kg)Height: 22 inches (55 cm)Highlight(s): friendly, playful, happy, personable, gentle I am so happy and excited to have arrived in Vancouver Canada!  I've been settling in at my foster's home (I slept on a couch last night-- what an improvement from the hard floors at the chaotic shelter where I came from!).  Luck came my way with the opportunity to come here, even though I do not have a permanent home yet.  Everyone seems hopeful that someone will fall in love with me soon, so I can officially start my new life!  Just look at my eyes-- one blue, one brown (no cause for concern, I was born with heterochromia)! From my gentle nature it's hard to tell that I had a rough start in life.  When I was young I had a litter of puppies who were stolen from me when they were only around a month old-- way too soon.  About 4 months later I was brought to a shelter, and was depressed for a very long time.  As I was shown kindness from people at the shelter, I forged ahead, but I still have my sad days.  I lived in the shelter for almost 1.5 years, and really didn't like it there.  While I made a lot of friends, I never felt at ease in the cage.  I would much rather be on a comfy couch, snuggling with my forever person!  I am very friendly with both people and dogs!  I can be cautious at first, but when shown kindness I will be smiling and playing quickly!I have such a spirit in me!  Running off leash at the dog park has been so much fun.Although I came with the warning of not yet being housetrained, my foster mom hasn't had any problems so far!  Given guidance, us shelter dogs tend to learn quickly.I can’t wait to show you my great personality, despite my sad past.  Hanging out with my friends at the shelter was alright, but I'm sure I'll make new pals, and really want a special human(s) companion to cozy up to! Energy Level: moderateI get along with:Dogs: YesCats: Have had limited interactions.  No prey drive, mostly cautiously curious and afraid when being hissed at.Kids: So far so good!  I've met a few in Vancouver and have accepted pets, hugs, and have ever-so-gently taken treats from their hands.  Fears: Some sudden/unexpected fast movements can spook me. Please be patient assisting me in my transition.Training: Shows promise in ability and willingness to learn.  Will take time and patience.Leash skills: It's all new!  Barbie doesn't pull on leash, walks calmly, accepts harness, loves walks.House trained:  No accidents at foster home. Health notes:I have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD plus applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada. Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.Information included in the profile is provided to us from the international rescuer or local fosters. LALDR does not have access to overseas dogs and cannot always verify the accuracy of their descriptions. Every dog is an individual and can act differently in different situations based on the person adopting them and the environment in which they live. Please Note: LALDR highly encourages adopters to research some local dog trainers before their dog arrives. Although a 1-on-1 trainer is often not needed, it is good to have someone in mind in case any problematic behaviours arise. Most bad behaviours can be modified if caught early enough, so make sure to nip undesirable behaviours in the bud before they become serious problems.Basic training should be taken seriously, but should not begin until your dog is well settled in - at least a couple of weeks. After you feel your new dog is relaxed and comfortable in their new home, check out training courses in your local area. Even basic beginner courses like those taught at a local pet store can have a huge benefit in helping your dog learn to socialize and get used to being in public situations, all with the added benefit of strengthening their bond with you. The age and breed of a dog is usually an educated guess, so we are not able to guarantee the accuracy of age or breed of our dogs. Normally, we will not approve adoptions to homes with children under 12 years of age. However if a dog has been determined to be good with children we will approve applicants with children 8 years or older. More information can be found on our website. [MID-EAST DOGS] *Vaccinations: Dogs from the Middle East are vaccinated for rabies, parvo, distemper, leptospirosis, adenovirus type 1 and para-influenza. Bordetella is not given, as that has not been a problem in the Middle East. ##1736428##
