Apply To Adopt

Maisy is a young Pitbull who was adopted and returned as she was too mouthy for her adopters. She needs a lot of exercise and a strong adopter who knows the needs of the breed. Please give her a chance! Maisy originally came to Save A Dog from a local animal control officer. She was found dragging a pink leash, but nobody claimed her. She is a wonderfully energetic dog with a brown sheen to her dark coat. She loves to play ball and run around. She has never met a stranger she did not like. She's housebroken and weighs 53 lbs. She will be available to meet by private appointment.

Available On: 4/5/15

Apply To Adopt

Sam is a one year old male Retriever mix who is a sensitive soul. He would be best in an all female household. He will fetch a ball and bring it back. Sam is sweet pup who loves people and loves to play with toys. His foster family says, "Sam is a sweet, well-behaved pup who is devoted and loyal to his caregivers. He will carry his toys to wherever you are and entertain himself while waiting for you to be free to play. He loves to run (he’s so fast!) and to fetch a ball. He is both crate trained and house trained, and he is quick to learn new tricks." Sam is ok with cats and is comfortable with other dogs and loves to socialize. While Sam is nervous at first in new situations and with new people, he will warm up in the right home. Unfortunately, Sam was not able to get over his fearfulness around the adult male in his recent adoptive family, so he is once again looking for just the right home.

  Fawn, 2 Years Female Lab/Aussie/Catahoula  Mix
Fawn
Fawn   Fawn
Click on picture to enlarge

Apply To Adopt

Fawn has been at our shelter since August 14th. That's way too long for such a nice dog! Please read and share! Fawn is a two year old spayed female weighing in at 40 lbs. One eye is half blue / half brown, which is commonly seen in the Catahoula breed. she is loving, playful, affectionate and has a calm temperament. She needs an understanding adopter. Fawn has a permanent limp from an injury she received when she was hit by a car before she was rescued. Her bad leg doesn't hinder her, but she cannot wrestle with other dogs so is best as an only dog. She is tennis ball and toy obsessed and will find a hidden tennis ball or toy no matter where you hide it. She barks at it until you throw it. Here's her back story: When Fawn was rescued she was in the same pen with another dog who was very frightened and Fawn comforted the dog every time it would whimper. Fawn was hurting too. She put the other dog's needs ahead of her own. We're hoping for someone with a big heart who has the love and patience to understand she's not a "cookie cutter" dog you can do anything to. This dog is a gift who deserves a great home. She has a fan club at the shelter and a few dedicated volunteers working with her, so she is making tremendous progress. Please apply online at saveadog.org or come meet her during our Meet and Greet hours.

Cinder

Click on picture to enlarge

Available On: 1/19/16

Apply To Adopt

Cinder is an 82 lb Lab who lost her home on Christmas eve, of all times! She is reputed to be 17 years old so we are only looking for a hospice home for her, someone with a really soft heart. Who knows, she could live a few more years. Cinder's in a short-term foster home and so far is fine with her dogs and ignores her cats. She's gone to the door to go outside to do her business --- Good Girl!!! When they took her to the car, she tried to jump in. So we lifted her front paws in and then her rear. She sat calmly on the back seat and watched out the window - content. What a sweet heart of a dog. The vet reviewed her and had this to say: She's stiff/arthritic in her joints. Some dry skin. Some lypomas. She has a firm mass on her left rear leg that has been there for several years and doesn't seem to bother her. We'd not do anything with it given her age and arthritis since to remove it would probably mean taking the leg. Her teeth weren't that bad. Her story: Her owner was/is homeless, living out of her car. She took Cinder from her brother when he died of cancer. Cinder could no longer live in the vehicle comfortably so she was give up to the pound.

Adonis
Adonis
Click on picture to enlarge

Apply To Adopt

Adonis is a shy 18 month old neutered male Lab mix who tends to bond with one or two people in the home so we're looking for a quiet home for him. He came to us from St. Thomas, hence he considered as a "Coconut Retriever". He is a handsome lad who needs to find his forever home with the right adopter as he can take some time to get accustomed to a new home. His foster family says " Adonis really comes to life on walks. He loves an outdoor adventure and would make a great hiking partner. He also LOVES the water. Give him a chance to splash around in a lake and he will take it, but be warned you will get wet! He is very polite meeting other dogs of all sizes. A good walk or a gentle jog, where he trots beside you on a loose leash, will help with the transition in his new home. He loves the car and will jump in (and out!!). He recently mastered the “sit” command which is the start of his long awaited “puppy training” and he will amuse himself with squeaky toys. His other favorite place is the garden where he will run and run. He is a beautiful dog to watch when he picks up his full stride. He will chase a Frisbee, sticks and sometimes a ball and is working on bringing them back. He loved to be chased by his previous two foster brothers, a 12lb Schnoodle and a 20lb mini Schnauzer and would use his nose to nudge them into action." He enjoyed a special bond with the teenage daughter in the foster home. Adonis is an easy keeper as he is both house and crate trained and sleeps through the night. A fenced in yard is necessary to keep him safe and give him access to the outdoors where he shows his zest for life. A dog friend would be great!. We know Adonis well and we welcome the opportunity to guide the special person who adopts him. You won’t be disappointed as he will be your forever friend for life. Adonis is available to meet and will be shown by private appointment. Apply at www.saveadog.org

  Riley, 4 years Female Min Pin

Apply To Adopt

UPDATE: GREAT NEWS! RILEY'S TEAR PRODUCTION HAS INCREASED WITH THE HOMEOPATHIC REMEDY WE'RE GIVING HER! My name is Riley and I am a pure bred Min Pin and a very special girl. I am sweet, lovable and cuddly. That makes me special, but so do my eyes. Can I tell you about them? My first owners used me for breeding. Even though I made them a lot of money, they didn't want to spend any of it taking care of me. I have a chronic condition known as keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS), or simply Dry Eye. Can you imagine trying to blink your eyes with no lubrication? Well I had to do that for the first three years of my life, and as you can imagine, it was very painful. My eyes got scarred from that, and now I am slightly vision impaired. When I was first brought to a shelter, my eyes were terribly inflamed, had bright pink ulcers all over them and they were even bleeding! It was terrible. But you can see from my pictures that my eyes are in great shape now. That makes me so happy and I feel wonderful. My foster mom takes such good care of me. I love her. I can see well enough to run around and play with my foster siblings. I love to be outdoors going for walks or hiking. I even love to go kayaking! Anyway, back to my eyes. What my eyes need to keep looking as beautiful as they do now, is eye drops. Yup, that's it. Just eye drops. And I am so very good about having them put in, it only takes a few seconds to do it. So why have I been waiting so patiently for over a year for my very own home? It is because the eye drops are very expensive and I need someone special who is willing to be as committed to me as I will be to them. I need these drops put in my eyes several times a day for the rest of my life, because I will never produce the tears I need to lubricate my eyes. The wonderful people at SAVE A DOG have saved me from living a life of pain and are committed to finding me the perfect forever home. But they need help to pay for my ongoing expenses. You see, the drops cost $85 per month! That is a lot of money for a non-profit shelter to spend on one little dog. And they have a lot of dogs to care for. Plus, I have to go to the eye specialist to get my eyes checked, and that is expensive too. But SAVE A DOG knows I am worth every penny, because I really am so special. Will you help SAVE A DOG to save me by donating to my eye care? Oh, and if you know anyone looking for the most adorable cuddle bug ever, tell them to ask for me, Riley the Magnificent Min Pin! Thank You So Much. Love, Riley. I will also be shown by appointment. Please apply for this sweetie at SaveADog.org

  Midnight, 3 years old Female Lab  Mix
Midnight
Midnight
Click on picture to enlarge

Adoption Pending

Midnight is a 3 year old Lab mix, approx 40lbs, whose life has had a rough start. She was taken in by a good Samaritan in rural Louisiana when she witnessed a man pushing a very pregnant dog out of his truck. This Samaritan took Midnight home and that night she gave birth to 8 puppies. Knowing that she needed some help with this mom and her new pups she reached out to the local rescue and asked for assistance. They told her if she could foster for a short time they would get Midnight and her pups transported to Massachusetts where they would find great homes. The good Samaritan was a service officer and she named all the puppies after her co-workers.

Midnight is a very sweet and friendly dog. She is good with other dogs her size, but a little nervous around small dogs. She has spent time with 2 other lab mixes, a 10 year old child, and some teens, all of which she has done well with. She gets along well with cats and does not pay any attention to them when introduced. Midnight is a special dog and will make someone the perfect family member. Are you that person that can make that happen?

If you are interested in meeting Midnight please fill out our online adoption application. She will be available to meet on 1/30.

ROCKET is a fun-loving 10 month old male "Mini Jack" (a JRT/Min pin mix). He weighs 19 lbs. Rocket is a riot. He jumps on his kuranda bed like it's a trampoline and he can jump and do a spin in the air when he's excited to see you. He can jump as high as your nose when he's excited but he doesn't jump all over you and he's not pushy or demanding. He's just a happy guy. He likes to run around in the back yard and then he wants to come in. He's really funny and will keep you laughing. He needs to be neutered and can go home soon after. He's happy and friendly pup who would love to go to a great home. He is available to meet on 2/2/16.

Adoption in Progress

Big Mac is not that big as he only weighs around 20-25 lbs. They say he's a Jack Russell mix but we see something bigger like Corgi or Beagle in there. He's around 7 years old, is neutered, is great with other dogs and easy to handle. When he gets in the car, he just settles right down for the ride. He's obviously been in a home and been in a car. He's very quiet and eats his food well. He would be great for a senior or someone who wants a mellow dog. His owner got sick and Big Mac found himself homeless. We think he had a flea allergy as he had some hair loss on his back that appears to be growing back. We ran blood work just to make sure he's healthy. You won't find a sweeter dog. He's available on 2/2/16. Big Mac Video: https://youtu.be/rNb8LL19hMo

Copper is a sweet gentle 2.5 year old Hound mix who has a thick coat like a water dog (Lab or Chessie). He has a very gentle and calm nature. He was turned in by a concerned person who fed him for several months after finding wandering through her fields in WV. His original owners never came for him. He gets along well with dogs and cats but he chases birds. He was just neutered so mature males might not be his favorite. After only a week in foster care, he is completely house trained. He already knows how to sit and is learning shake. He loves to lay at his bowl and eat, enjoying every morsel. Copper is ready to finally find a forever home. He is available starting 2/2/16.
