Woof Wednesday

Welcome to Woof Wednesday. Please meet some special dogs from CA, IA, NY, PA and VA
all in need of good, loving homes.

Pleas feel free to use social media to spread the word about these dogs.  The more people hear about them the better chance they have of finding homes.  Thanks. (or as the dogs would say woof, woof)

 Clifford is a happy, sweet 7 year old beagle/basset mix. He gets along well with other dogs, and respects them when they tell him off. He loves belly rubs, and attention of any kind. He is housebroken. He walks nicely on leash. Whenever he sees someone his tail wags and wags-he's always excited to meet new people. He likes to play, but also likes to nap on his dog bed. He does have some arthritis that seems to bother him a little, but nothing major. We will start him on a joint supplement and see if that helps.He has cherry eye, a condition in which the third eyelid pokes out of the inside corner of the eye. It is not bothering him or affecting his vision, so surgery would be cosmetic, and not necessary. He's good with cats, and even kids but does not like his ears pulled. BDRA will arrange transport to an approved adopter.  Won't you please give Clifford a good home?

Lucky is a miniature schnauzer who was surrendered to the shelter because his previous owner was no longer able to care for him. His previous owner said that he loves to be around people but does not get along well with other dogs. They also said that he has a sensitive stomach and does best when fed a food specially formulated for that. He has been diagnosed with Lyme Disease but is currently undergoing treatment here in the Shelter. Please ask staff about his special medical needs when you come by for a visit. We have noticed that Lucky is independent and fun loving. He likes to be scratched and spoken to softly but he is just as content when running around exploring! He is not a fan of bath-time and probably would do best in a home that is able to commit to professional grooming for him.

Ginger is a sweet and loving old girl.  She loves to talk to you when she first sees you because she is so excited and can't contain herself.  She doesn't seem to care about cats and other dogs but can be a little grumpy around other dogs trying to get in her way of her favorite people.  She would make a great companion for someone!

 Snowball is a 8 year old West Highland Terrier male looking for a family to call his own.  Please let's help this little guy find the loving home he deserves!

At five months old this little boy is all puppy.  Eli is inquisitive, smart, and goofy. He is house trained but that’s about it. Eli will chew your shoes, sunglasses, and other important, expensive items, follow you everywhere, leap onto your lap and give you tons of puppy kisses, cry when you leave, and celebrate with abundance when you return, even if you have only been gone for a few minutes. You see, Eli had a rough start when he came into rescue and is pretty much our miracle baby. Now that he has fully recovered, he has enjoyed the spoils of foster such as swimming, hanging out at the beach, paddle boarding, kayaking, golfing, wine tasting, shopping at the farmers market, dining out at local restaurants, hiking, and playing with his foster brothers.  Eli loves to go everywhere with you, is very well behaved and charms the socks off of everyone he meets. He does pretty well on leash but would benefit from a puppy class that stresses socialization as well as obedience. Eli is looking for that special home that will include him in all of their activities, where he will have his human for the better part of the day and if the package comes with a canine playmate, even better. He is awesome with children of all ages but remember, puppies chew and their teeth are sharp.  Be prepared to fall in love.

No paw left behind is our mission!

{Please keep in mind a dog is a lifetime commitment. They need attention, love and time just like we do. In addition, adding a pet to the family does cost money in the way of food, health care,training,etc. So before adopting make sure you are willing to make that kind of commitment and have the resources to do so.}
