Hi, I am Gordo, but after some time with my foster, he decided the name Benny was a much better fit. I am about 2 1/2 years old. Somehow, I got lost and ended up at a shelter. Fortunately, I was saved by the rescue, and they found a foster home for me.
My foster dad says I am just a lover. I love all people, dogs, don't even mind cats, and if I could I would give them all a hug. I know basic commands, love to get outside and RUN, and when I get winded, I'm so content just laying down to bask in the sunlight. I'm decent on a leash, but tend to pull a bit, because I'm just so curious about my surroundings.
You can probably tell by my pictures that I may be the most handsome dog in the world, and I also have the demeanor of a super sweet gentleman. I don't give kisses, but have plenty of other ways to show you how much I appreciate you loving me and taking care of me. I crave attention, and my tail is always wagging, but I can also sense when you are busy, and love to play with my toys on my own until you're free to play with me :-)
I'm crate trained, and don't mind spending the night in it as long as it is super comfy and has a toy/bone to chew on, but I so much rather sleep in the bed with my foster dad, because I give the best snuggles ever!
My ideal forever home would definitely need a large yard with room to run, explore, and defend from any trespassing squirrels. I would also love to have another pup to play with, and older kids would be great to keep me busy.
If you're the one for me, please complete an adoption application, if you haven't already. I am up to date on all vaccines, neutered, microchipped, heart work negative and all my blood work is great! My adoption fee is $375. We can't wait to hear from you!
Hi friends! My name is Rye and I am a 4 year old sweet, gentle girl. The first 4 years of my life I lived at a hunting club in an outside kennel. The only problem is I’m terrified of gunshots (or any loud noises). My original owner was making life changes and realized he could no longer keep me. About a month ago, I met my foster parents for the first time! I was so scared. I had never lived inside a house before, so this was very different for me. My foster mom weighed me when I first began living with her and I was a whopping 29.5 lbs! I’m tiny but mighty, she said!
I never knew what a toy was but now I can’t have enough of them! Isn't that great!? I have a ton of energy so I really need a forever home that is able to keep up with my need to play! Being outside running around is my favorite thing, with cuddling a close tie! I wouldn't do well without a fence or some other type of barrier because I'm still learning boundaries and might decide to go explore. Speaking of exploring, I LOVE car rides! I sleep well in my crate at night and generally sleep the whole night through.
I really enjoy playing with other dogs too. My foster sister and I chase each other and play tug of war all the time. Since this is all new to me, I have had a lot of anxiety. Thankfully, my vet was able to do some research and now I’m on some meds which have helped so much!!! I am crate trained, good on a leash (if I’m familiar with my surroundings) and I’m working on potty training.
My foster family hasn't left me outside of a crate too often when they leave, but when they have, I haven't had any issues....only finding toys to play with (or sometimes playing with things that aren't toys.) :-)
I am such a sweet girl and I'm SO EXCITED to find a forever home with an active family that can help me discover all the great things life as a family dog has to offer. I have a lot of catching up to do!
I am up to date on all vaccines, spayed, microchipped, heart work negative and all my blood work is great! I would love a forever home that is able to give me a lot of love and patience because I’m not sure how much of that I had in my first 4 years.
