Woof Wednesday

Welcome to Woof Wednesday. Please meet some great dogs from CA, IL, NJ, NY, PA and TX all in need of good, loving homes!

Cotton is a young male Terrier mix who is sitting at animal control hoping to find a family.  Please lets find him a loving home!

Hank is a 3 year old Beagle. He is a young, medium energy male rescued from an area shelter where he strangely went unclaimed. Strange, because a more loveable dog is impossible to imagine. As man's best friend Higgins is the quintessential companion dog who will follow you everywhere, listen to your every conversation, and love you unconditionally. He will find your most mundane activities fascinating. Whether you are brushing your teeth or folding laundry, you will find him sitting quietly nearby marveling at his human. Yet he is respectful of your space, is rarely underfoot (well, except in the kitchen when food appears), and is never demanding. His mission in life is simply to be with you. He enjoys exploring the outdoors, especially on his daily walks, and greets everyone he meets with a joyful wag of his tail. He is wonderful with the resident senior terrier, respecting her space and food, and not excited by the cats he encounters outside. He can sit and come on command, is very nearly crate-trained and house-trained, and is quiet in the house and yard, even with barking dogs on the other side of the fence. He likes chew toys, watching out the window, and being petted from head to tail. The only thing he doesn't like, and which will set off some "Arrooos," is to be left alone something his foster family is working on. He is a sweet and loving dog with a will to please, and he is also a bit of a clown. He occasionally gets the zoomies running laps around the house or yard, expending some of his youthful energy. He can be silly, like sticking his head between the pickets of the garden gate and pushing and pulling to open and close it. He can be surprising, like marching through the fish pond when called to come. And he can be enterprising, like using a patio chair to access the grooming table so he could be brushed. He sleeps upside down, rolls on his back in the grass and his bed, and can grin from ear to ear. Higgins is a happy, fun loving little guy who will bring smiles wherever he goes. The ideal home for Higgins would be one where someone is home most of the time someone who will appreciate his devotion and help him with separation anxiety. Because he loves the great outdoors, and currently needs to shed a few pounds, he would do best in a securely fenced in yard with the freedom to explore and space to exercise.  Please lets find him a great home!

 Shirley who is on the left is an 11 year old basset and weighs 50 lbs.  Shirley is a great girl and loves people and has non idea she is 11, so if you meet her don't tell her  Sadie Mae is on the right and she is an 8 year old Basset who is also 50 lbs.  These girls are great and super sweet.  They was surrendered to a shelter where they would have been gassed if we did not take them and we could not let that happen. The dogs have been in a home previously with kids and did well with them, they are housebroken, up to date on shots and both spayed. Sadie had surgery on her eye to remove two cherry eyes and is recovering great.   Please lets find these two girls a good home they can go to together!

Ring is a puppy hound mix who is very loving and sweet puppy who appears to be a Hound mix. This adorable girl is probably going to be a medium to large adult. She weighs 25 pounds currently, at just a few months of age. Ring will do well with a gentle, yet active, family without very young children. She gets along with other dogs and could probably live with cats, as long as they are properly introduced. Her new family will need to continue the usual puppy obedience training and housebreaking; we recommend group puppy classes for the whole family.  Please lets find her a loving home!

 Mack is a 1 1/2 year old Sweet Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix. He is so stunning and unique with his coloring, long legs, black highlights and cute little white toes. Sadly his adopter, being confined to a wheelchair, was not the right fit for this active young pup.  He is very polite, obedience and so well behaved. Good with children, dogs and house trained. Mack loves to play, but his other favorite pass time is giving kisses. Invite him in to your personal space and he tries to be a lap dog curling into you, licking your face and trying to be as close as possible He is such a lovely and social dog and his safer indicates he would be a great addition to just about any family. He's young, affectionate, loving, loyal, neutered, he knows basic commands and he is ready to find a home.  Please lets find him a loving home!

Lilly is a Border Collie mix who is 8 years old and 49 lbs.  This very friendly and affectionate lady would be a catch for any family looking for a well behaved, housebroken, sweet dog. Lilly had been with her owners from the time she was a puppy, and they were forced to give her up because they were dealing with a serious illness in their family. She clearly is used to being a pet, and behaves perfectly here in the shelter. Nothing seems to faze her  except maybe cats her owners said she isn't crazy about them. Come and meet this cuddly girl you'll be as charmed with her as we are.  Please lets find her a great home!

Blanca is a Dalmatian /Boxer mix who is 2-3 years old and 45lbs.  During a thunderstorm, Blanca was happy to get out of the rain and jumped right into the car of a Good Samaritan who stopped to help her.  Unfortunately, no one came forward to claim her.  Her finder did not want to turn her into animal control, so Forgotten Pet Advocates is helping to find Blanca a home.  She has a submissive personality around other dogs and gets along well with other dogs who are her size.  She loves to play ball, get her belly rubbed, and go on walks.  She knows how to sit and is kennel trained.  She is fully vetted and micro chipped. Please lets find her 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.}
