Sadie Grace

  • Animal Name: Sadie Grace
  • Listing Date: 07/12/2017
  • Date of Birth: 7/30/2012
  • Weight: ~25 lbs
  • Breed: Beagle
  • Physical Description: Lemon
  • Personality Description: Sadie is a four, almost five, year old female beagle. She is loves to snuggle and have belly rubs. She loves to go on walks, but doesn't like other dogs. She has spent most of her life as an indoor/ outdoor dog until the last year when she became an outdoor dog only. She would prefer being an indoor dog. She loves being around people. She's very friendly with adults and kids. She obeys basic verbal commands such as come, sit, stay, and roll over. She LOVES food.
  • Spayed/Neutered: yes
  • Vaccinations: up to date
  • Animal History: Sadie has never gotten along with other dogs very well, especially dogs that are bigger than her. While in the backyard or when being walked she frequently barks at dogs passing by. Over the last six months Sadie has become aggressive with her beagle "sister," which is why she needs a new home. Other than her sister, she has bitten one other dog - but neither dog was injured (skin was not broken). Sadie is territorial with food and her kennel with other dogs - she has not shown signs of aggression towards people with either of these issues. Sadie would thrive in a home where there were no other dogs, or with someone who was willing to invest heavily into her rehabilitation.

Pippin

  • Animal Name: Pippin
  • Listing Date: 06/24/2017
  • Date of Birth: ~2 yrs
  • Weight: 31lbs
  • Breed: Collie/cattle dog mix
  • Physical Description: Ginger colored coat, white chest and paws. Medium length fur.
  • Personality Description: Pip is a highly intelligent and energetic dog. She loves toys and treats and picks up commands very easily (knows sit, stay, come, down, and paw so far). She gets along great with the other dog who resides with her- they play together and share toys, water, treats, couch space, etc. However, she is very anxious outdoors and has a dog aggression problem as a result. Unfortunately I'm moving away to an apartment with a dense population of dogs, and I cannot risk bringing her into that environment. I know how difficult it is to re-home an aggressive pet, but I'm hoping someone will be willing to take on the challenge, as she is so smart and sweet indoors and has so much potential.
  • Spayed/Neutered: yes
  • Vaccinations: Up to date, as heartworm medication supplied for the next 5 months. She also has the extra one that allows her to drink from stagnant water outside without risk of Giardia infections, so she's ready to explore the outdoors!
  • Animal History: I adopted Pip from a shelter a little over a month ago now. She was super friendly and wiggly and adjusted amazingly fast to our home and the other dog. The problems quickly became apparent when she began barking immediately at the sight of other dogs. We got to the point where she can walk by other dogs without barking but we still avoid walking on the same side of the street where her aggression can come out. She would be the perfect candidate for a reactive dog class and with hard work and dedication, I know she can overcome these issues.

Lucy

  • Animal Name: Lucy
  • Listing Date: 05/24/2017
  • Date of Birth: 2010
  • Weight: 9 lbs
  • Breed: Siamese/Tabby Mix
  • Physical Description: Lucy is a slender cat who is mostly white, with some gray mixed in. The top of her head is patterned like aTabby, but she has the distinctive white coat and black coloring of a Siamese cat. Lucy has two beautiful blue eyes, although one is covered by scar tissue from an infection she had when she was very young. She has light sensitivity in this eye, and no related health issues. (documentation available) Despite this disability she is an expert moth-hunter and quite coordinated.
  • Personality Description: Lucy is a very laid back kitty. She was raised around large dogs, and enjoys their company on a sunny afternoon. She also does well around small children. Lucy can at times seem skittish (due to loud noise, etc.) although once she is comfortable she is very trusting. For example, when company is over, she will seemingly disappear, only to return an hour later demanding pets. She enjoys very much being handled, and has been known to snuggle in beds, chairs, and even let you carry her around. (Her favorite way to go to the vet is on a leash)
  • Spayed/Neutered: yes
  • Vaccinations: up to date as of May 2017
  • Animal History: Lucy was originally owned by a family member who moved out of the country. We are housing her temporarily. Our son has developed an allergy to her and we are unable to keep her long-term.

Louie

  • Animal Name: Louie
  • Listing Date: 05/11/2017
  • Date of Birth: Approx. 1 yr old
  • Weight: 40 lbs
  • Breed: Am Staff Terrier/ Am Pit Bull Terrier, maybe a little red heeler?
  • Physical Description: Louie sports a stunning, unusual red and brown brindle coat and piercing green eyes. He gets adoring stares and pats wherever he goes! He has a muscular, athletic but lean build and is about 24" tall from ground to top of his head when standing fully upright. Louie lives in Muskogee, OK. His foster is so enthusiastic about his virtues, that she is willing to deliver him ANYWHERE in the US!
  • Personality Description: You've never felt this much love in one place before. He loves everyone, including cats, dogs, and people. He mostly ignores/respectfully stays away from cats while greeting other dogs and people with great enthusiasm (sometimes more than they have for him). Multiple animal professionals who've worked with him remark on his excellent personality and considerable intelligence. He's particularly responsive to training. He's still a bit puppy-like; he nips (VERY lightly) to get your attention, pulls when walking on lead, and does jump up. These minor, easily correctable behaviors are his only flaws. Because of his jumping, I recommend all his humans be 12+ years old. No one smaller than adult-size should walk him alone, because he's strong, but he is getting better at not pulling.
  • Spayed/Neutered: yes
  • Vaccinations: All up-to-date, plus six-month ProHeart heartworm preventative good through August (which I will update for him in August for six more months if I still have him by then. He gets flea- and tick-treated. plus de-wormed, monthly.
  • Animal History: When I rescued Louie from a rural area near a 65-mph four-lane highway in early February 2017, he ran right up to my car and made sure not one tiny spot of my face went un-licked. He was skinny and clearly starving, though he has since obtained, as his boarding guardian puts it, "the look of success about him." Since February, he's only gotten sweeter. He also loves to learn. That first day, it was clear he'd never been on a leash before, and by the end of the day, he was a champ on a leash. Every vet team that's met him (two so far) remark on how wonderful he is. He's only not at home with me (I pay to board him) because I'm maxed out on the allowed number of pets in my home.

Jessie Marie

  • Animal Name: Jessie Marie
  • Listing Date: 05/11/2017
  • Date of Birth: 2010
  • Weight: 50 lbs
  • Breed: Lab / Australian Cattle Dog Mix
  • Physical Description: Black (with a little gray sprinkled in), short & sturdy frame
  • Personality Description: Extremely sweet. She is scared of loud noises and sudden movements. She likes to have a safe, quiet place to go lay down. She is a happy girl that can get quite vocal(talk to you). Every once in a while she will get that typical lab excited bouncy joy. She does not require a lot of attention but enjoys a belly rub once she's comfortable with you. She is usually more comfortable with females. She is scared of large overbearing and aggressive dogs. She has a tendency to really like beagles. She usually doesn't like to go for walks. She typically goes out into her fenced back yard to potty and wants right back in. I typically go with her. She is definitely not a protector, she wants you to protect her. She will curl up on the couch beside you sometimes and watch Hallmark movies. I think she likes the calm, happy music. She also enjoys sitting and watching out the window. She likes calm dogs and kittens/cats. She also enjoys slowly swinging with my niece.
  • Spayed/Neutered: yes
  • Vaccinations: up to date
  • Animal History: I got her a little over 3 years ago. When I got her, she was too scared to go out to potty. She would just stand there and shake. I think that her first few years, before I got her, were pretty tramatic for her. She has come a long way.
