  Buffy has been a great mom and we have been very lucky to have her for our first foster. She is really a great dog, so good most of the time, that you forget she is still young. She can be naughty when she doesn’t get enough attention or is bored, but with plenty of exercise and attention she is well behaved. She is great with people of all ages, even small children. You do have to watch so she doesn’t jump. She jumps if you stop giving her attention or playing when she wants you to continue. We are working on OFF. She has met a 3 year old golden retriever neighbor dog and an 11 month old Dalmatian neighbor dog and they all got along great. We have a friend whose dog is not well socialized with other dogs and Buffy senses that and reacts by being very wary of her, so we don’t let them interact.  Buffy doesn’t come to her name, but always listens when I give her a command and when I call her Babe. She is kennel trained and house trained. She is good on a leash, but needs some work staying on course – just being a puppy! She doesn’t know sit, so we are working on that. She knows come, stop, no and down. She won’t go on furniture even when invited, but loves to snuggle if you can get to her on the floor. She will chew on anything and loves soft toys. She is a jumper. We have seen her jump a 4 foot fence! She loves being outside even in the heat – it will be interesting to see how winters go for her. She does not like fireworks or water. We can only give her sponge baths as she really doesn’t want to get wet. I think she would be a great dog for a jogger or biker or a super trail dog as she would want to stay with her pack. She bonded with me right away and I think she will bond quickly with whoever gives her the most attention. She is not a big barker, but will bark when another dog walks by or someone comes in the yard. show less

Homer 7 year old wgs. Loves all people, loves to snuggle with you. Can be a bit stubborn but will do anything for a treat! Knows sit, learning down and off. Takes treats like an alligator so flat hand for treats after saying nice. He gets it, just gets excited when you first bring them out. He has been doing better with not bolting out the door, I make him wait. A fenced yard would be best, pulls out of collar so slip lead is a must. Pulls a little on walks but it you stop he stands still. Does not like to be grabbed by collar so no small children. i hold him loosely around his neck with my arms and he will just stand there. Slow and easy works well with him. No steps without carpet, he is scared to come back up. He loves to follow you around and would let you pet him for hours. Good in the kennel once you throw a treat in first. He is so sweet he just wants love and affection. Does not try to get on furniture. He is not yet fixed ( we will get him fixed with his foster to adopt family), so no alpha dogs and female would be the best for him. Homer is looking for a foster to adopt home as we need to get him fixed. Unfortunately the other male dog in the home is not one to back down to Homer which had caused some issues. Homer will need a submissive female and strong handlers. No farm animals for him  show less

Hi, my name is Lavender. I am a spunky, sassy little girl who is 5 months old. I am a quick learner especially when food is involved. I love all things including FOOD, puppies, kids, BALLS. Wait did you say ball?? I will do anything for a ball and I am very good at bringing it back to you so that you can throw it again. I learned that was a lot more fun than just carrying it around. I am not too much into soft toys though, I leave those for my brother. I am still working on being potty trained but I am sure I will learn in no time. I even figured out the dog doors in 2 days without my foster mommy wanting me to learn, haha. I sleep through the night but I will admit I have my brother to keep me company so I am not lonely. I do know my name and I love being praised for things when I do good (esp when there is a little snack involved) but I will admit I do get distracted by balls if they are around. I can’t wait to find my forever family. Please note: Lavender is one of the parvo puppies but did NOT test positive. This means she cannot go to a home with another puppy. She should not be around any young puppies. No dog parks or pet stores for the next 5 months. Although she didn't test positive we want to treat her like the other parvo pups to be safe. show less

Shaggy has now realizing what being a dog is all about. How life can be a lot of fun and not so scary. He is still timid towards people, especially men, but he is starting to understand that humans can be nice.   Last weekend he took his first trip to the vet to have his nails trimmed. He loved the car ride and had his nose out the window the entire ride enjoying all the smells. He was nervous to go into the vet but once in the room he did great. Even the vet tech was impressed with how well he did.  He has been enjoying playing with his foster brothers a lot. His confidence is getting much better. He would do best in a home with another dog. He is learning his basic commands and is doing well. We are working on leash training now. This past weekend we brought in another foster (3-month-old female). He has taken her under his wing and loves to play with her. He does well with all dogs big or small. I would not recommend him for a home with small kids. Shaggy responds better to females at first. He is still very reserved around men. It would have to be a very slow introduction to any man and be someone that has the patience to allow him to decide when he is ready to be around them. He loves to have his tummy rubbed and being loved and hugged.  He loves to be brushed and is just the sweetest guy. Shaggy is ready to find his forever home and start his new life being loved the way he deserves to be.  show less

Where do I start with my story? I have had so much in my short life, as they say I am only a year old. I was found in Texas as a stray with a really bad cut to my leg. Trust me you don't want to see the photo!  Doctor says I have healed good and my leg will just be a little different than my other three. Stairs can be weird for me, but I am slowly getting stronger.  Don't you worry, I  can still run faster than any of my three furry siblings! I am small at just over 40 pounds, which means I can run as fast as the wind!  Have I told you how smart I am? I actually learned the "lay down" command in only three tries!  I am a Belgian Malinois mix, after all! Oh speaking about that, these crazy people at white paws say I should have a home that has experience with this breed.  I absolutely love to cuddle with my foster mom but can still be shy at times.  I will need a handler who will work with me in and outside of the home to build my confidence with new experiences.  Sometimes I growl when dogs or strange people come into my safe area, but am already learning that I don't have to be nervous all the time.  I am great with other dogs, and still learning how to play! I am respectful of the dogs who don't want to play with me, but also can get scared of the dogs that do.  I am a silly girl full of personality! I can make my foster family laugh, especially when I get what they call the "zoomies!" I live with a little but beautiful baby (11months) and she is very interesting to watch. I am unsure of what to make of something so small but I have never been mean to her. I mean who would ever be mean to a baby? I do think kids that are respectful and have good dog manners (like not pulling, giving space when scared, and not using me as a pillow) would be great! Heck we could play ball together! I love to play fetch but you might have to chase me to get the ball back haha.  I need an active home who will give me some mental challenges or I will get bored!  I would love to go for walks, have another dog, a fenced in yard, and a family who understands that I am shy and can be scared, but absolutely amazing.  I will need you to come to my level at first - give me love and guidance -  and then show me the world! Ok, ok enough about me I will be waiting with my foster family for you and want to hear all about you! show less

*please read the entire description - we know she looks cute*  Introducing Willow! Willow is a 2 year old sable German   Shepherd who unfortunately has been returned to our rescue twice. She does not do well with other dogs but she's learning and she has made incredible progress over the past few weeks! When she first came to her foster she would bark and lunge when she saw another dog through the window or on walks. She was also terrible on a leash. After a few days at the foster she can walk past other dogs without loosing her mind with the use of hot dogs! She also walks amazing with a gentle leader head harness. Watch the video of one of the training sessions using the foster's own dog! Willow is now at a trainer getting lots of practice learning how to be appropriate around other dogs. She is working on her dog reactivity, boundaries, impulse control, manners, and obedience. Most importantly, she is learning to look for her handler for guidance and leadership. She is learning what a calm state of mind is and  how to achieve that when needed.  Willow does amazing in a kennel and will happily go in her kennel with a Kong full of peanut butter and the command "kennel". Willow will need to be in a kennel when not supervised, including at night, as she is a bit of a trouble maker.  She absolutely loves people and kids! But would do better in a home with no small children because sometimes she forgets how big she is. We don't know how she would do with cats, but she seems to have a bit of a prey drive so probably no cats. Although Willow is doing well with training, she would still need to be the only dog in the home.  Willow's new home needs to have someone who is a strong handler and has experience with difficult dogs and one who is dedicated to continuing her training. She can be stubborn, she tries to push buttons and see what she can get away with, but with consistent boundaries and rules she will be a great dog.  If you're interested, please put in an application! show less
