Story
Meet a timid lady Jinhee🩷 Jinhee was abandoned by a foreign worker. She used to hide in fear just from the sight of people’s hands. Even though she was facing the risk of euthanasia since she wasn’t used to being around humans, she's getting better now thanks to her foster family. Thanks to her foster who was understanding and patient for Jinhee, she now plays with people she trusts! Her days are being filled with more and more compliments. If you understand and wait for her, you will be able to see Jinhee’s ever growing love! ✨You need to approach her carefully because she can be surprised or uncomfortable with people who scream, or makes large gestures or actions. 💟 Personality / Characteristics * Keywords: #Charming #Timid #Mildtempered * Energy Level (1~10): Level 4 *Can be uncomfortable at doggy friends who actively and boldly come at her, but Jinhee can greet doggy friends coming slowly with a good manner! *Doesn’t particularly react to cats during her walking session. *Prefers a person who moves slowly and quietly than a person with a loud voice and moves too boldly!💗 *Jinhee who can be a calm girl even when she is playing with her foster can be more outgoing too! When her foster tosses the stuffed toy, she brings it to the foster and enjoys playing the tug play. *Can be uncomfortable when someone comes at her too actively and boldly.😭 Doesn’t like high-pitched, loud sounds. *Prefers walking with her foster and enjoying the surroundings than actively playing and running around with doggy friends. *Mostly rests during the daytime and becomes more active and plays in nighttime.❤️ *Can briefly bark on the sound of the door knock but doesn’t bark most of the time. *Doesn’t prefer bathing but she can patiently tolerate it. *No carsickness. *Tends to shed slightly but sheds more during shedding season!

Story
Meet Gyumi💗💗 * Interaction with people: Is shy and reserved. He smells people passing by and shows curiosity, but finds it awkward when they come close. He is not used to his foster family's touching yet, and hides in the corner when you try to touch him, but stays still if you actually touch him, and even follows if you go somewhere else. When he gets used to it, he opens himself up and eats snacks if you give him some. * Interaction with dogs: Is not comfortable with other dogs. Is scared of dogs who bark and run at him. With slowly-approaching dogs, he smells them face-to-face but soon turns away. * Interaction with cats: He shows uneasiness and wariness around cats, even during walks, where he tends to keep his distance. * Separate Anxiety : He spends time alone well. Sometimes, he lies down looking at the door, but soon goes to the bed and falls asleep! Wags his tail and welcomes you when you come back home. * Potty Training : Prefers100% outdoor potty! * Hygienic : He's still learning to become comfortable with bathing, grooming, and teeth brushing, but he tolerates them without mouthing. Gets scared and tries to run away at the sound of dryers, but so towel or fan (dryers very shortly if needed) is used to dry tim. * Walking : Walks in step with the walker and enjoys taking a walk! He's a bit afraid of the leash but waits patiently until it's put on. Is scared of cars or motorcycles. Prefers walking near the bush or where there are no people. * Car Sickness : Is okay with riding a car, and stays well in the car seat. May vomit on winding roads. 💌Special Notes💌 * Gyumi is getting used to his malformed bones after suffering a long-time fracture to his shoulder and back. As he has no issues in walking, the vet's opinion is that surgery is unnecessary. * He can take easy walks, but running or intense exercise is not allowed. * Mastered “sit” and has a big potential of learning other skills once he gets used to physical contact with people! 💟Health Status💟 * Neutered * Others: Microchipped, Completed heartworm treatment. * Even though having a dislocated left shoulder and shattered&stiffened right shoulder, he has no problem walking. However, it may hurt for him if he moves vigorously, so close observation is needed. * Has vision in his right eye but his left eye is blind. His fur is currently shaved off because his skin was not healthy. He scratches a bit, but it's getting much better and his dead skin cells are unseen now unlike before.

Aberdeen Scottish Terrier Rescue is a registered 501(c)3 Web Site: www.aberdeenstr.com ***MUST SUBMIT APPLICATION before we will respond to email or phone inquiries. Thank You for your cooperation*** Please read listings fully to the end before applying for one of our beloved rescues. WE ARE NOT A SHELTER; WE ARE AN ALL-VOLUNTEER RESCUE WITH FULL-TIME JOBS. Please do not contact us to look at a dog. We will contact you once we have reviewed your completed application if we think your home might be a good fit. A reference check, phone interview, and home visit will be completed before meeting an adoptable dog. We work quickly. Please do not submit an application until you are ready to bring a new furry family member home. Expect your references to be contacted shortly after submitting your application. We adopt out to homes in WA state, but require that you are present for the meet and greet in Newcastle, WA. Our adoption fee is non-negotiable. The adoption fee is due on the day of adoption in the form of a check, Zelle or cash. We no longer accept PayPal because of the huge fees they take from the rescue. Talk about right place at the right time yet again with our foster mum & for beautiful Shiba. This is another one of those disgusting stories plus so very sad for Shiba. Our foster mum was at one of the very high kill shelters in CA rescuing a sweet soul when a family come along who were going to dump Shiba. They daughter said she did not like Shiba because her eyes freaked her out. Shiba was her dads dog & had her since she was a puppy & they were all moving. The dad lived in the garage & he left Shiba with them that morning because in his new place he couldn’t have dogs. So the daughter wanted Shiba gone & was not willing to take her to the new place they were moving to. The usual disgusting story of, we are moving so we can’t take our beloved dogs with us story. Unfortunately our foster mum thought there was only Shiba they were dumping but they had 2 more dogs. As our foster mum was driving away down the road a young daughter in the car yells out “we have 2 more dogs we are giving to the shelter”, but her father told her not to bother the lady. So unfortunately 2 other dogs did enter the shelter & we don’t know if they made it out alive from the same home? We are so grateful to have saved Shiba. We can’t begin to express how much we all love this girl. Without our outstanding foster mum this would not of happened & who knows what would of happened to this precious girl? Shiba is 1 of our beloved rescues favorite girl in the rescue. She is the nicest girl. We truly believed her dad did love her very much. Medically, no & financially no. That was all on our shoulders to take care of. But her mannerisms tell she was loved. Shiba who is now looking for her very own forever home & who will never give up on her again & dump her & love her just as her foster mum & we do. Shiba was bought back to WA state from CA where we got all of her medical taken care of & she can’t wait to find her loving forever home. Our foster mum in CA cried & cried the day Shiba left as she knew she was a very special girl. How on earth anyone could let Shiba down is beyond us. Especially since the previous people had her so long, it’s shocking. Shiba just wants to be loved & look look out, once you love her back you will have a new best friend for life. Disturbing to think of what almost happened to her. The level of absolute madness here is so deeply sad for many of these beautiful souls out of CA. Shiba is such a good girl her foster mum said, she is super sweet, she is so quite & lives to be near you. You look at her & she looks straight into your soul. It’s time for this girl to be the queen as she always should of been. Shiba is a good eater, she loves to eat & put on countless pounds since being rescued. Shiba loves sleeping with her foster mum & wants to sleep with her & does not like to sleep alone. So we are only looking for a home where she can sleep with her family or other dog friends in the home. Shiba’s new forever home must have a fully fenced secured backyard for her safety. She loves to go outside & sun herself & play in the backyard. She wants to be wherever you are her foster mum said. She will become your stalker. If you get up, she gets up. If you take a shower, there she is on the other side waiting for you. This sweetheart has been taught to shake paws as it shows in 1 of her pictures. She is a smart girl. Shiba has been great with her baths because she started having them with us the moment she was rescued & she was quite filthy when our foster mum got her. She is also so used to them & is good being dried by the hairdryer. Shiba rides beautifully in the car & enjoys a good journey & enjoys looking out the window & going places with you. Shiba walks beautifully on her slip lead. We cannot say enough how wonderful this girl is & we want the very best forever home for her. We are looking for a forever home for Shiba where someone is home during the day or she can go with her people wherever possibly she can go with them. Shiba is good with other dogs & we have even put her into a daycare with all different breeds of dogs & she has done good with them. We are also looking for a crate free home for the little lady only. Shiba is looking for a forever home who will cherish her & love her as she should be loved & be patient with her. Shiba has been around many breeds of dogs all shapes & sizes & she is currently with other dogs & was fostered in CA with other dogs & does well with them & enjoys their company. We have tested her for roughly 9 months with countless dogs in & out of a daycare with countless breeds & she has done well with them. But we want her to be the only dog in her forever home so she can be the queen & get all the attention. Shiba was adopted for a extremely short period of time but it was not a match as she did not get along with the dog in the home the adopter said & she had scuffles with that dog so they did not want her & returned her. Shiba is roughly 5 years old & 61 lbs & is perhaps an Australian shepard, but what she is mixed with we are not sure at all. She is female, spayed by laser by our wonderful vets. Shiba is, heart worm negative, had a dental scale & polish & dental x-rays. We treated Shiba for a raging skin infection where she lost some of her fur on her belly & legs with antibiotics but her fur grew back. She is microchipped, given flea treatment, up to date on her shots, including DHLPP, Bordatella, rabies & dewormed. We have spent far more on Shiba, with all of her medical care than her adoption fee comes close to even covering, her spay by laser, all of her shots, testing her for heart worm, microchip transport fees bringing her back to WA state, etc. Shiba has been around cats since being in the rescue in her foster home & could care less about the cat in her foster home but it’s always up to the new family to be responsible with their animals together. We have not had her around small children so we do not recommend small children nor cats & it’s always up to the family to be responsible with their children. We were not there when Shiba was conceived so we do not know who both her parents were, but it’s always up to the new potential family to look at the pictures & decide what they think her breed is. As with all of our rescues & Shiba’s friends she will need work on potty training & training, so this should be something the new family would be willing to work on & commit to. Please do not submit an application if you are not willing to commit to one of our rescues care for their whole life & that includes if they need training. Please do not email us asking is Shiba potty trained or available, nor do we ship dogs anywhere as we will not respond. We would never say anyone of our rescues are potty trained. Our rescues need homes where the people are understanding of their past & what they have been through & what they will need in their daily lives & not willing to give up on them & if they do need training in their new home will in fact take them to training & not just say they will when applying. Shiba has been through many traumas in her short time on this earth so when applying this needs to be kept in mind & for her care. Please only submit an application if you are truly interested in adopting Shiba & going through our process and have read her listing fully to the end & are wanting to adopt. If you are not responsive to our calls, emails or your references do not respond we will move on & remove your application from our system. You must be willing to go through our screening process which includes your references being checked, a phone interview & a virtual home visit due to covid & followed by a meet and greet & if it’s a good fit, up to our discretion. We will only be accepting applications for Shiba who understands her needs & that meet all the requirements for this beautiful soul of a lady. Once we find the right home for each little soul we work fast, within days so the dogs can go to their forever homes in quite a timely manner. We do not hold onto dogs for people as our goal is to save lives & please do not submit an application if you are not ready to adopt. We also cannot respond to every application unfortunately. Shiba has an adoption fee of $995 & her adoption fee does not come close to what we have spent on this beautiful girl. Shiba is ready for her truly loving forever home & compassion & understanding of what she has been through.

We no longer accept PayPal because of the percentage they take & their fees but if the potential adopter is willing to pay the fees & charges we will accept PayPal. What these sweet souls see, hear & endure is incomprehensible. Ellen was part of a breeder dumping dogs. He actually wanted Ellen & many others gone immediately in Indiana but was willing to work with us. We have to move fast because unfortunately in these situations, when they want them gone, there is no messing around for their health & safety. Being breeding dogs they are money making machines only & their time had come to an end with this breeder. Beautiful Ellen & her other 9 friends were living outside all day & night in cages. Once we knew about them, there was no way we were leaving them there. We organized to rescue all of them & our wonderful team drove & picked up everyone. Of course the were all so filthy & stinking so badly & some were matted to the skin & needing grooming immediately & medical care. He did not care & just wanted them gone. Rescuing the breeding dogs is an extremely expensive situation each time & it involves a lot of expenses in transportation & so much medical. Now the real healing, love & devotion could begin & show Ellen how she is supposed to be loved & adored in a loving forever home & her other friends. Ellen was bought back to WA state where she is now so happy to be here & can’t wait to find her new loving devoted forever family. Beautiful & gentle Ellen. She is such a sweetheart even though humans have been so bitterly cruel to her. Her world changed within hours of a phone call & a car ride along with her friends. No more living outside for this girl in a cage. When she arrived she had urine stained fur & we do not know had she ever seen a bath up until then. We see this all the time with the dogs in cages sitting in their own filth & it takes so long to remove the urine stains that have built up. Her foster mum in CO said she was such a sweetheart with them & enjoyed running freely on the property with the other dogs & clearly this was her first chance & freedom but it was a little overwhelming & didn’t want to come inside as she believed she would go into a cage. Her foster mum & dad in WA said she was very sweet & everything was obviously new to her & it would take time, patience & understanding with what Ellen has been through but does not have a mean bone in her body. The dogs gave her joy & comfort in that foster home & she loved to eat. She adored having a comfy bed & big comfy blankets because again the reality is, this is something she did not get to experience ever until she was rescued. Nor toys, love, her own bed. All the things she should of experienced. She slept & slept in her foster home in WA as if she had never slept before. Her current foster mum said Ellen willingly joins the other dogs at meal times now, & eats next Toto the Scottie.  Her appetite has become voracious & she definitely has put on weight.  I haven’t been able to spend much time leash-training her (due to my limitations) but she is getting the hang of a stretchy leash.  When I first got her she would not walk at all with me - just stood there.  She is now responding to treats as rewards, whereas at first she wouldn’t take a treat from me.  Even now sometimes it’s 50/50.  She has not been willing to learn about the dog door, although she stands right at the door & watches the other 3 use it all the time.  She would still need work walking on her harness & leash as it’s all completely new to her as she was never taught until we rescued her. This girl has been good with all different breeds of dogs as they bring her comfort. We have tested Ellen in a daycare environment & is good with men & women & adores the dogs but it’s to overwhelming for her. Ellen rides fine in the car & is good with being bathed. We are looking for a crate free home for this little lady only. Ellen as you can imagine spent the beginning of her life outside in a caged environment. We are also looking for a forever home for Ellen where someone is home during the day or she can go with her people wherever possibly she can go with them.

We adopt out to homes in WA state, but require that you are present for the meet and greet in Newcastle, WA. Our adoption fee is non-negotiable. The adoption fee is due on the day of adoption in the form of a check, Zelle, or cash. We no longer accept PayPal because of the percentage they take & their fees but if the potential adopter is willing to pay the fees & charges we will accept PayPal. What these sweet souls see, hear & endure is incomprehensible. Dixie was part of a breeder dumping dogs. She actually wanted Dixie & many others gone immediately in Indiana but was willing to work with us. We have to move fast because unfortunately in these situations, when they want them gone, there is no messing around for their health & safety. Being breeding dogs they are money making machines only & their time had come to an end with this breeder. Beautiful Dixie & her other 9 friends were living outside all day & night in cages. Once we knew about them, there was no way we were leaving them there. What’s even sadder here is she had 4 babies too so of course we got mum & babies. We organized to rescue all of them & our wonderful team drove & picked up everyone. Of course the were all so filthy & stinking so badly & some were matted to the skin & needing grooming immediately & medical care. She did not care & just wanted them gone. Rescuing the breeding dogs is an extremely expensive situation each time & it involves a lot of expenses in transportation & so much medical. Now the real healing, love & devotion could begin & show Dixie how she is supposed to be loved & adored in a loving forever home & her other friends. Dixie was bought back to WA state where she is now so happy to be here & can’t wait to find her new loving devoted forever family. Our love Dixie. She is such an amazing soul even though humans have been so bitterly cruel to her. Her world changed within hours of a phone call & a car ride along with her friends. No more living outside for this girl in a cage. Her foster mum in CO said she was such a wonderful & very sweet girl & also enjoyed running freely on the property with the other dogs & clearly this was her first chance & freedom but it was a little overwhelming & didn’t want to come inside as she believed she would go into a cage. Since being in the rescue Dixie has been one of the easiest & calmest & so sweet dogs we have had the pleasure of meeting. Such a love. She adores having a comfy bed & big comfy blankets because again the reality is, this is something she did not get to experience ever until she was rescued. Nor toys, love, her own bed. All the things she should have experienced. She is now used to being picked up & held & loved. She has also got used to being bathed & brushed. She would still need work walking on her harness & leash as it’s all completely new to her as she was never taught until we rescued her. She will walk on a slip lead. This girl has been good with all different breeds of dogs as they bring her comfort. We have tested Dixie in a daycare environment & is good with men & women & does amazing in a daycare environment. We also have to say, she is obsessed with food & loves to eat. Dixie rides beautifully in the car & is such a good car rider & is good with being bathed. We are looking for a crate free home for this little lady only. Dixie as you can imagine spent the beginning of her life outside in a caged environment. We are also looking for a forever home for Dixie where someone is home during the day or she can go with her people wherever possibly she can go with them. Dixie is looking for a forever home who will cherish her & love her as she should be loved & be patient with her & never give up on her. Dixie has been around many breeds of dogs all shapes & sizes in the rescue & in her foster homes & she is currently with other dogs & enjoys their company. It’s mandatory for her to go to a forever home with another dog present. Dixie forever home must have a fully fenced backyard, this is mandatory. Dixie is roughly 15 lbs, she is 6 years old & a mini Australian shepherd, but what she is mixed with we are not sure. She is female, she is spayed by laser by our wonderful vets, she had a dental/scale & polish & dental x-rays. She had 14 teeth removed, 4 minor molars, 7 minor premolars & 3 minor incisors. She is microchipped, she is up to date on her shots, including DHLPP, Bordatella, rabies & dewormed several times. We have spent far more on Dixie with paying for her to get away from a breeder in Indiana to get her out with bringing her to WA with her boarding costs, transport costs, her medical care in WA, getting her spayed by laser, now boarding her in WA etc than her adoption fee even comes close to covering. Rescuing these dogs in these situations is financially draining then getting them all their medical added on too. Dixie has not been around cats since being in the rescue but it’s always up to the new family to be responsible with their animals together & we have not had her around small children so we do not recommend small children nor cats & it’s always up to the family to be responsible with their children & cats. We were not there when Dixie was conceived so we do not know who her parents were & it’s always up to the new potential family to look at the pictures & decide what they think her breed is. As with all of our rescues & Dixie’s friends she will need work on potty training & training, so this should be something the new family would be willing to work on & commit to. Please do not submit an application if you are not willing to commit to one of our rescues care for their whole life & that includes if they need training. Please do not email us asking is Dixie potty trained or available, nor do we ship dogs anywhere as we will not respond. We would never say anyone of our rescues are potty trained. Our rescues need homes where the people are understanding of their past & what they have been through & what they will need in their daily lives & not willing to give up on them & if they do need training in their new home will in fact take them to training & not just say they will when applying. Please only submit an application if you are truly interested in adopting Dixie & going through our process and have read her listing fully to the end & are wanting to adopt. If you are not responsive to our calls, emails or your references do not respond we will move on. Or you waste this rescues time, will remove your application from our system. You must be willing to go through our screening process which includes your references being checked, a phone interview & a virtual home visit via WebEx or zoom due to covid & followed by a meet & greet & if it’s a good fit, up to our discretion. We will only be accepting applications for Dixie who understands her needs & that meet all the requirements for this special sweet little lady. Once we find the right home for each little soul we work fast, within days so the dogs can go to their forever homes in quite a timely manner. We do not hold onto dogs for people as our goal is to save lives & please do not submit an application if you are not ready to adopt. We also cannot respond to every application unfortunately. Dixie has an adoption fee of $1250 & is ready for her truly loving forever home & compassion & understanding of what he has been through.

Story
This is Scorpio. This adorable doggie is a very easy going dog.  He loves the outdoors and will be a perfect camping buddy for someone.  He is gets along with other dogs (slow introductions always).  He is crate and leash trained.  He loves his humans.  This boy is ok during car rides too.  He is ready to find his loving home.  Are you his human? Why adopt from Texas? Because you will be giving one of our many dogs and cats in need a chance for a better future. An opportunity to be loved and cared for by good and loving families. There is a reason why we make the trip to your area every two weeks. You are worth the drive. We have AMAZING adopters and we need more like them. We have fosters all over the Pacific Northwest allowing us to post in specific cities. Due to Covid 19 restrictions all Meet & Greets have been cancelled to keep everyone safe. Our adoptable pets are in Houston living with local foster families making the transition into your household a whole lot easier. Our transport company leaves Houston every 2 weeks for Oregon, Idaho, Washington, Colorado & Canada. We will book your baby as soon as adoption & transport fees have been received. www.springbrachrescue.org ##1711245##
