    Ernie (D0405)
    This is Ernie, he is a bonded pair with Burt. They came to us about a month ago from a hoarding situation. The boys were kept outside so they are still getting used to being indoor dogs. Ernie is VERY attached to his brother, we think because of what they endured together before they came to us. We are hoping to find a forever home they will both be welcome.

  2. Flash (D0511)
    Flash (D0511)
    Meet Flash! He came to 4 PAWS in June 2017 a total mess! He was a hunting dog turned loose to service on his own. He was a walking skeleton with no training and heartworm positive. Over the summer his fosters crate trained him, teaching him how to be an indoor dog. We got him neutered and treated for heart worms. He loves other dogs, he loves kids and he loves playing. He is still learning that counter surfing isn't acceptable but his good features far outweigh the bad!

  4. Spitfire (C0006)
    Spitfire (C0006)
    My name is Spitfire and I am looking for my forever home! I was rescued after someone dumped my pregnant mommy in the woods. She gave birth to us and then a lady trapped us so we could be safe from the neighborhood dogs. I was the runt of the litter but my heart is HUGE! I just want a human to snuggle up with and spend my days loving. I enjoy cuddling up and watching movies. Loud noises scare me so I could do well in a quieter home with older kids or adults. I am fine with other cats and will not chase dogs. I have all of my shots and I am neutered.

The now are able to walk on a leash, they are crate trained and housebroken. They are not tiny dogs, they weigh about 35lbs.

We updated his vaccines, neutered him and tested for FiV/FeLV (both negative). He is definitely not feral, he does figure eights through your legs. He is co-mingling with our cats, has used the litter box from day one and will cuddle once he gets to know you. Vranna is young and small/medium size. He is ready for his own family!

    Diane (D1025) (MEDICAL HOLD)
    Meet Diane! She is part of the "D" litter (Dart, Daffy, Dani, Deacon, Delilah, Diane, Dinky, and Durango). These babies were outside for the first 9 weeks of their lives. They were born on November 1st, mom is a Lab and dad is an American Bulldog (mom has been fixed). This bunch is cuddly and love being inside! The fosters have been working hard on socializing them, they are good with kids, other dogs and some are good with cats. Here is what her foster has to say about her: Diane - the curious one, but also submissive and patient one. Feeding, treats, toys........... she will sit back and wait her turn instead of fighting for all. She's so submissive that she is granted extra couch time to get her away from her bossy siblings for some retreat time. She loves to snuggle, give kisses and just be close to you.

The fosters have been working hard on socializing them, they are good with kids, other dogs and some are good with cats. Here is what his foster has to say about him:. Durango - very curious about everything, the leader of all. He's so curious at times that it has gotten him into trouble with my dog. Poor Durango has a few marks on his face because he wanted to be a bit too close to Ralphie, and not so patient Ralphie was not having any of it................ Durango is a sweet boy but will need a bit more training when it comes to sharing food. They all had a rough start in life but Durango is having a bit harder time than the rest to understand that there now is plenty of food for everybody, ALL the time.
