General Information When Abraham arrived at the Homeless Pet Foundation, he was a broken and desperate dog. Abandoned and left to starve in a crate that was too small for him, he had given up hope of ever finding happiness. But the kind hearts at the shelter took him in, and over the past 218 days (as of January 7th, 2023), they have worked tirelessly to heal his physical and emotional wounds. Today, Abraham is a different dog. He is happy and healthy, with a playful spirit and a heart full of love. But despite all the progress he has made, there is one thing that continues to elude him: a forever home. Abraham has never known the comfort and security of a family to call his own. He has never known the joy of being loved unconditionally. Behavior with Cats, Other Dogs, and Children Abraham has not had much experience with cats, and based on his tendency to chase small animals, it is likely that he would not do well with them. We do not have a history of him interacting with children, but his high energy levels and his tendency to jump suggest that he would be better suited for a home with older children, around 8 years old and up. Abraham has had some experience with other dogs, but his tendency to jump on them can sometimes cause irritation. We are currently in the process of learning more about his behavior with other dogs through his time in a foster home. Personality/Energy Level Abraham is a friendly and outgoing dog with a great temperament. In his previous foster home, he was known for his love of exercise and would often run around in the backyard for 30 minutes to an hour before settling down. He would make a great exercise partner for an active person or family. In terms of energy, Abraham can range from mid-level to high energy and would do best in a home that can accommodate his exercise needs. Overall, Abraham is a loving and affectionate companion who will make a great addition to any active household. Skills/Crate/Potty Abraham is a clever dog who has learned the commands "sit" and "down". He is highly motivated by treats, so using them as a reward during training can be very effective. Abraham is crate trained, but he may experience some anxiety when left alone in the crate for extended periods. To help him feel more comfortable, providing him with toys or puzzles to occupy his time in the crate can be helpful. Abraham appears to be housebroken, but there have been a couple of incidents in his foster home, which were likely due to him not being let out frequently enough. Overall, with proper training, Abraham has the potential to be a well-trained and well-behaved companion. Likes/Dislikes Abraham is a friendly dog, but he does have specific dislikes. He is sensitive about having his paws handled and will react by whining loudly and pulling them away. Abraham has a few likes that his future owners should be aware of. He enjoys laying in his bed, running for extended periods in a fenced-in area, and puzzle toys or anything that makes him think. Abraham came to us very thin and as a result, he is protective of his food and may not like it when people reach into his food bowl while he is eating, so it's important to keep this in mind if you have small children. He also has a tendency to become protective of his food and toys around other dogs, so it's important to monitor him in these situations. Medical Abraham is up to date on all of his medical care. He has been neutered and is current on all of his vaccinations. He has also been tested for heartworm and is negative. Additionally, he has received a Proheart 12 injection, which is a long-acting heartworm preventative that is given as a single injection every 12 months, as well as monthly flea and tick prevention. Abraham does not have any ongoing medical issues. He is a healthy and happy dog who is ready for his forever home. show less

Bandit

Meet Bandit, a one and a half year old mixed breed who is looking for his forever home. Weighing in at thirty pounds, Bandit has a heart as big as his adorable puppy-dog eyes. Unfortunately, Bandit came to us with scars on his snout resembling bite marks, leading us to believe that he may have been used as a bait dog in the past. He was found in a crate by an animal control officer with these scars, leading the shelter he was taken from to suspect this was the case. As a result, we have yet to test him with other dogs and his ideal adopter would have a lot of compassion and patience to work with him. Bandit is a bit of a "project dog." This means that he will require a special adopter who is willing to invest the time and energy to help him overcome his past and become the best version of himself. He is fearful and lacks leash training, and gets scared if any pressure is applied to his neck. With proper training, patience, and love, Bandit has the potential to be a wonderful companion. He just needs someone to give him the chance. The staff at Homeless Pets Foundation works tirelessly to give him more socialization and break him out of his shell. Bandit is a bit shy and reserved at first, but once he gets to know you, he will be your loyal companion. He loves to be cuddled and will give you kisses to show you how much he appreciates you. He is a gentle soul who just needs a little TLC to blossom into the best dog he can be. If you're up for a bit of a challenge and want to give a furry friend a second chance at life, then Bandit is the pup for you! show less

General Information Duke is a handsome 2 year old German Shepherd who was surrendered to the Homeless Pet Foundation due to his previous owner being in hospice. Behavior with Cats, Other Dogs, and Children Duke is a bit shy when he first meets new people, but once he warms up he is a total love bug. In his previous home, Duke was known to be reactive with other pets, but since being at the shelter he has played nicely with another dog, so we believe he is picky with who he likes. Duke has also been around children in his previous household (ages 6, 8, and 15) and did well with them. Personality/Energy Level Duke is a smart and trainable dog who loves to learn new things. He is also very food motivated, which can make training sessions especially enjoyable for both him and his trainer. We would describe his energy level medium to high which is dependent upon if he is over stimulated by rough play or getting too excited Skills/Crate/Potty  Duke knows sit, stay, paw, and down commands. He is housebroken and does not urinate or defecate in his kennel. He was used to being crated in his previous home but not for extended periods, just for if they had to errands, no longer than an hour or two. Likes/Dislikes It is important for Duke's new family to be knowledgeable about German Shepherds and their protective nature, and to be committed to helping Duke continue to work on his socialization skills and providing him with the training and guidance he needs to thrive. An ideal adopter for Duke would be someone who is experienced with the breed and understands the care and attention that a German Shepherd requires. Medical Duke is up to date on all of his medical care. He has been neutered and is current on all of his vaccinations. He has also been tested for heartworm and is negative. Additionally, he has received a Proheart 12 injection, which is a long-acting heartworm preventative that is given as a single injection every 12 months, as well as monthly flea and tick prevention. Duke does not have any ongoing medical issues. He is a healthy and happy dog who is ready for his forever home. show less

He enjoys the company of other dogs and during his time with a foster, he was well-behaved around children but due to his strong attachment to humans, a home with teenagers or adults is recommended.
