Woof Wednesday

Welcome to Woof Wednesday. Please meet some great dogs from CA, GA, NY, PA and TX all in need of good, loving homes!
 Winky is a male Jack Russell Terrier. His legs are adorably shorter than his body is long, giving him a long look like Corgie. Winky is about 10 years young and an experienced lap warmer. He also has excellent manners that only a gentleman of his distinguished years could possess. But don't let his age fool you, Winky has plenty of terrier spunk. He likes to play and is very social with other dogs but definitely has the terrier attitude. He knows what he wants out of life and if you don't agree, he'll be sure to let you know. Whenever his foster parents are a little late with dinner, he barks at the food bowl to remind them that it's dinner time. Winky is house trained and if needed, well suited for apartment living. He most loves spending time with his family, especially cuddling. He could be paired in a home with other dogs or would be ok as the only dog as long as his humans were his close companions. He is up to date on shots and just had his teeth cleaned. Winky just underwent surgery to remove his blind, painful right eye.Please lets find him a loving home!

 Maggie is a 2 year old terrier mix who was surrendered with her little pups to us from a hoarding situation. She loves to be held and cuddled... very sweet little girl and great with other dogs. She is good with most dogs, cats and children. Very easy going and great addition to a family and cuddle buddy for someone who likes movies on the couch.  Please lets find her a great home!

Ginger is a two year old Golden Retriever and German Shepherd. Ginger is a beauty and real gem. She is so full of vitality and life that she brightens a room with her entrance. Ginger came to us from a large urban animal control facility where she spent some time after having been picked up as a homeless stray. Ginger made an immediate favorable impression on shelter staff, and proved herself to be a self-possessed, confident girl, with the chutzpah to flounce through the harrowing shelter process that crushes the spirits of most dogs. Ginger received the best possible behavior evaluations, and was beloved by staff and volunteers. And yet, we found her on the daily Euthanasia list while we were tracking down another dog. Only 2 years old, this highly lovable and adoptable beauty was at death's door. Hard to believe. Ginger joined our rescue so that we could find her forever home. Ginger has an amazing temperament, and can join just about any home. She is a gentle, quiet girl who seems to stay calm in the eye of a storm. She will shy away from the heart of the action, and stand quietly on the sidelines awaiting her turn for hugs and treats. Ginger is good with other dogs, and could easily join a multi-dog home, with other medium energy dogs. We have not had Ginger around cats, but most likely, she would get along well with appropriate, patient introductions. Ginger is friendly to all once she has been introduced properly. She could easily join an active family with older kids, or a moderately active single or couple who seek a devoted companion. Ginger is a medium energy dog, with a puppyish sweetness, who needs a couple of brisk leash walks each day to be happy. Ginger has not had much obedience work, but is extremely eager to please, so her training process will be a pleasure. She has begun to grasp the obedience basics we have introduced in foster care, and adopters should be willing to continue her training and develop her full potential. Ginger has great house manners and is crate trained and housetrained. Adopters should have appropriate expectations of a rescue dog, who has been through as much as Ginger has, and be willing to fine tune and reinforce good potty habits.  Please lets find this sweetheart a good home!

Peyton is a two year old Cairn terrier.  He is a happy go lucky energetic guy who was found as a stray.  He's too much dog for cats, and could only live with other dogs as energetic as he is. He could live with kids over eight.  Please lets find him a loving home!

 Bentley is a 10 year old Beagle and weighs 30 lbs, Oscar is 7 year old Griffon and weighs 20 lbs. For seven years Bentley the Beagle, and Oscar the Griff, have been best friends. Sadly, their family could no longer keep them and needed to find them new homes. NBGR stepped in to help by taking Oscar into their program and tried to find a Beagle rescue to help Bentley but had no luck. When that failed the next option was Bentley would be sent to a shelter. Not wanting that to happen one of our wonderful foster homes stepped up and opened their hearts and home to both boys.  Now that Oscar and Bentley have been in their foster home we are happy none of the Beagle groups stepped up because these two boys are€“ Fur Friends Furever. Splitting them up would be like splitting up Batman & Robin, Lone Ranger & Tonto or Ben & Jerry. So, these two are a package deal.  Oscar is playful, gets along with other dogs and respectful children. He is housebroken, crate and leash trained. He likes to go for walks and cuddle with his human or wherever Bentley may be hanging out. Bentley sadly was hit by a car a few years ago and lost his right front leg but that doesn’t hold him back. He bounds up the stairs in his foster home without a problem. Bentley loves to hang out and play with Oscar. And enjoys rumbling with his foster brother Buster. He is house trained, leash trained and does well with children. Bentley has not shown signs of being an excessive barker. Oscar and Bentley would love to have a family who has a nice size backyard so they can run and play. They both love to go for leisurely strolls. Both boys are neutered, up to date on their vaccinations, mc, heartworm negative and on preventative. Now all they need is a forever family who, like their foster family, will open their hearts and home so these two can continue to stay together. Please lets find them a great home!

No paw left behind our mission!

{Please keep in mind a dog is 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.}
