Meet Mercedes and Lexi!
Hello to our possible forever family, I am Mercedes and my sister Lexi (blue collar) and I are searching for our forever-forever family. I am 12 and my baby sister is 11 and we're currently in NC with a lovely family helping us find our new home. Don't let our age "number" fool you, the vet said we're as healthy as they come and we still love to play (especially Lexi).
Lexi is especially playful and loves to run and play, so a big yard to frolic and play ball would be ideal in our forever home. Lexi is such a sweet sister that loves both humans and doggy friends (including me). In our foster home, we have a 10-month old GSP sister that Lexi romps with all the time – it's fun for me to watch her but I prefer to just supervise and not join in.
As for myself (red collar) I am the laid-back lady who prefers to sit in the sun and let the young ones play on their own. I am very much content to just be loved on by my humans and although I love to explore outside, I am much calmer than my counterpart, Lexi.
We are both very smart and eager to please our humans. We both know basic commands (sit, down, stay) and are crate trained. We sleep in our crate (aka our safe place) at night but can also be trusted inside your home when we're alone during the day as long as we're on a schedule for bathroom breaks (we are true ladies and do not like messing our inside space).
We love our beds or a comfy spot to chill most of the day. We both love to go for walks with our foster parents and love any kind of treat, but peanut butter is our absolute favorite (who can blame us, right?!). We consider ourselves the dynamic duo and will absolutely steal your heart. We have been around younger children a little bit and have done well – we love small humans but prefer they don't tug or pull on our not-so-young bodies.
Lexi and I still have a lot of life, sass, and spunk left in us!!!! We've spent our whole lives together and are looking to keep it that way, if possible. If you think you're the one to love us forever, please complete an application (if you haven't already) and email our foster Mom Sydney at email@example.com.
P.S. we are beautiful seniors that are spayed, vetted, healthy and temperament tested so our adoption fee "should" be thousands of dollars, but the rescue said we are $187.50 each so $375 for both of us. Such a deal for pure beauty, intelligence and love!
Hi I'm Jack folks...and I'm looking good and looking for my forever home.
My foster Dad says I'm the sweetest ole dog I've ever met (hey, I'm only 9 so I wouldn't call me old by any stretch). I was given to SEGSP when my owners found out I had heartworms – yeah, I know, it's sad. But in the 6 months that I've lived with my foster family I underwent heartworm treatment (not fun) but also learned how to be a dog (super fun). I was kept penned up my entire life and had no idea how fun life could be. I didn't have other animals to play with before but here on my foster family's little farm I've met all kinds of animals and I've learned how to have a dog's life – a happy one!
There's so many things I'm thankful for...I love sleeping under the magnolia tree and watching the chickens in their pen. I know that sounds silly but it's so entertaining! I love the sheep and goats and boy will I chase any squirrel or groundhog that comes into the yard – now THAT'S fun! When I first came to my foster home all I'd ever had for entertainment was chewing things in my pen. So that bad habit was broken once I realized there were other things to amuse me and much better things to chew on (that my humans give me to chew on).
I'm super smart and I know a lot of basic commands like "out," "no," "sit," "come," "inside," and "get in the bed." See I told you I knew a lot! I also know my name and will come when whistled for (a no-brainer since I know it will be something fun...even if it's just to please you). I will also come up to the porch if the dinner bell is rung for when I'm out in the pasture playing. I've already been taught to stay in the yard with a pet safe invisible fence and have never blown out of it. Ever. Yup, I'm super duper smart.
I'm definitely food motivated and will lay down with my head in the bowl and eat till the bowl is empty. I just love food. I also know to stay off furniture and to alert my family when I need to go outside by walking to the door (I'm so happy to be living inside that I'll do anything to keep it that way). When I go inside after a long day of protecting the yard from birds and squirrels, I like to sleep right at my foster Dad's feet – to protect him (and I'll admit he makes me feel safe too). I love to be pet and will crawl into his lap if he lets me. I just want to be loved-on and I really like being scratched behind my ears.
I'm generally a quiet dog but I have to bark at bicycles and motorcycles – I don't know why but it's fun. I also like to give a good howl when sirens drive by – boy that's fun to sing along with them. I also enjoy watching my foster Dad work in the garden and with the sheep.
I have a GSP buddy, Miss Kitty, that I'm quite fond of and when she's out of my sight I will worry about her and bark some. I'd love to have another dog companion but it's not mandatory as long as I have you paying attention to me. I get along well with the house cat and the kids that stop to greet me as they ride their bikes down the street. And a cute trick I've discovered is to stick my head right in your hand with the hope of a pet and scratch (works every time with the little ones).
My foster Dad says I'm a well-mannered gentleman that will make someone a great companion. I don't have the energy that most GSPs do but I still have many years left to greet you when you get home and keep your feet warm when it is cold. I'm "quite a character" he says.
If you're interested in being my forever companion please complete an adoption application (if you haven't already) and email my foster Dad Nathan at firstname.lastname@example.org
P.S. I'm completely vetted, neutered and temperament evaluated and although I think because I'm so smart I should be super expensive to adopt, they say I'm a senior so my adoption fee is $187.50. Such a deal!
