Socialization/training: No formal training, but very intelligent. Currently lives with 2 other dogs.   Crate trained: Yes; she sleeps in her crate at night. Leash trained: Yes, she is used to a harness or a slip lead. Activity Level: She is high energy during the day, but she likes to sleep late and come inside early in the evening; almost appears to be afraid of the dark. Fence: At least a 6’ fence is required; Brie can climb but she has not climbed our fence; Brie did climb the wire gate at our groomers; not invisible fence trained.    Behavior: Brie is a kisser; she wants to be the center of attention all the time. She has learned to be more polite and not jump on people, but may test each person’s boundaries. Medical History: Brie has no known health issues. She is spayed, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations and on monthly heartworm prevention. Her next leishmaniasis test is due in June 2022. Brie originates from Turkey where Leishmaniasis is endemic. She tested negative before coming to the USA, but the parasite can remain dormant in the system for many years, so potential adopters must be willing to commit to annual testing for the next 7 years. Typically, the test needs to be sent to a special lab, but any regular vet can draw the blood and send it to the lab. The cost of the test seems to vary widely by area, but is approximately $150-$250. Foster Comments: Brie may be part English Setter, but she is really Border Collie through and through, from personality to energy, intelligence, and body type. She loves being with her people, so in her forever home she is looking for either a retired couple or person who can take her almost everywhere, maybe even to work sometimes. She does fine when her foster family is at work and does not try to escape the fenced yard but would much prefer to have more people time than she currently gets. Brie is a very dainty (and sometimes picky) eater and takes goodies so gently from the hand. She loves to give kisses too. Brie gets along fine with dogs but is dominant in a non-aggressive way; she doesn’t really care one way or the other what the cat is doing and is a bit timid. The cat in her foster family spends more time in the hay barn than at the house so Brie has not had too much interaction with the cat. She also very quickly became bored with the chickens (fenced but inside the yard). Watch out if you have guinea pigs, rabbits, or other small furry pets! Brie really, really wants to “play” with them, but has learned it’s a no no. Some of her fears are thunder, blenders/vacuums, and missing out on attention. During loud household activities like vacuuming, Brie paces and wants to go outside. Brie is determined and persistent when she wants something and is smart enough to test the boundaries with different people.

Socialization/training: Darby is very well socialized with other canines and extremely gentle around people. As for training, she can be easily retrained (in English). Darby is still unsure of her name and common commands in English. More work will need to be done to teach her to come when called, stay, good girl, sit etc. She aims to please her human and is very food/treat motivated. Her preliminary cat testing in Turkey states she is OK with cats, but during cat testing with foster’s friends she was somewhat uneasy about a cat in her midst.  Crate trained: Darby did well in a nighttime crate the first week as her foster was testing the waters but should never need to be crated in her adoptive home. Foster parent highly recommends an environment where someone is always home (either retired, part-time or a work-from-home scenario). She has taken very well to doggie doors in her foster environment.  She does continue to have accidents upstairs in the master bedroom, same spot, but foster suspects this is because she does not want to venture all the way down the steps to the doggie doors. Leash trained: It’s evident that Darby has had previous leash experience. She gets excited when she sees her lead taken down from the wall hooks and sits/waits by the door patiently for her lead to be attached. No pulling and happy to be out exploring and strolling at a slow pace. She will also potty #1 and #2 on a leash. Activity Level:  Very low and she seems to prefer it that way. Although the vet stated she is 5-6 years; Darby’s foster believes her to be between 8-10 years old. Adoptive home will need to lift her into cars/trucks, in/out of the tub, and possibly provide a ramp near her bed (if elevated) since she has trouble getting her rear legs to do heavy work. She needs a single-story home (or first floor bedroom) with few steps since she struggles up/down to/from her foster’s upstairs bedroom. She would do best in a quiet home with a lower activity level and calm atmosphere - no tiny or rambunctious children. Other dogs are OK – she doesn’t mind their company but only on occasion will she play a short game of tag or bitey face with her fur siblings. Darby naps 10-12 hours a day and sleeps a solid 7-8 every night in bed with her foster mom.  Fence: It is extremely RARE for a Setter to not have a strong prey drive, but that is our Darby. Darby rarely looks up to the trees for birds or runs down a scent trail. A fence is not a necessity but preferred. It would not need to be a tall fence, and it is unknown whether she would do well with an invisible fence. She would require additional leash training to learn her exterior boundaries if adoptive environment was fence-free.          Behavior:  There is no evidence in her foster environment that indicates any previous abuse or mistreatment. Foster suspects she was a very loved pet in her former life. She will not jump on people and kindly greets all her neighbors and visitors. She loves to be brushed and groomed. She avoids any confrontation or challenges from her foster fur siblings. She always craves to be within 5 feet of her foster during the day and night, inside or out. She would not do well in a home as an only dog where her adopter was away for long periods.             Medical History:  Darby now has a clean bill of health, but upon her arrival to the US had a double ear infection, gingivitis, and a small mammary tumor. Her ear infection was promptly treated and cured. Her teeth cleaned up very well during a standard dental surgery with no extractions needed. Her mammary tumor was removed, tested, and found to be negative for cancer cells. She was mildly underweight, but quickly enjoyed her steady meals and good girl treats for stellar behavior. Her initial test for heartworms (June 2021) is negative. Darby is currently on Heartworm prevention and by the end of 2021 (late December) should have her final test for Heartworms since they can lie dormant for 6 months. She was spayed in a municipal shelter in Turkey prior to her arrival at the Garden in Turkey. Due to her rear leg limitations, her foster vet recommends a lifelong daily joint supplement – which she started on day one in foster care. Also because of this, foster prefers a more mild or warmer climate for Darby. Her next leishmaniasis test is due in June 2022. Darby originates from Turkey where Leishmaniasis is endemic. She tested negative before coming to the USA, but the parasite can remain dormant in the system for many years, so potential adopters must be willing to commit to annual testing for the next 7 years. Typically, the test needs to be sent to a special lab, but any regular vet can draw the blood and send it to the lab. The cost of the test seems to vary widely by area, but is approximately $150-$250. Foster Comments: Darby is the foster fail that got away. Her foster knows that if she keeps Darby, then she is restricted by her HOA and won’t be able to foster any more future pups in need. Darby easily blends herself into the background around the home. She is a quiet companion - not an alert barker nor does she make any noise while outdoors. Darby is just now coming around to enjoy the finer things – such as squeaky toys and chewies. She loves to go on leisured trips and rides very well in cars.      Foster Location:  Rock Hill, SC (metro Charlotte, NC) Volunteer transport can be arranged in the Continental US within a 1,000-mile distance between adopters & foster home.

Socialization/training:  Dorey is a love and gets along with everyone. Crate trained: She is comfortable in a big crate but prefers to sleep with or near her family. She likes to sleep at the bottom of the bed. She has a large head and broad chest but has slender midsection and hips so her back legs are not strong enough to get up on a high bed so she puts her front paws on the bed and asks for help. Leash trained: Please don’t tell Dorey she is a senior because she thing thinks she is young kid who loves her walks. She will make a wonderful walking companion. She does have harness that will come with her things. Activity Level: She is energetic and wants to be with her people and enjoy what they are doing. Fence: A fence is not required. She would do best with a fence and will not challenge even a small fence. Behavior: She just wants to be with her family and know here they are at all times. She will cuddle but can adjust to the situation. She had some bad grooming in the past so she is very nervous when being groomed. Foster mom is using a pair of grooming gloves and a few brushes that make it easy and helps her think she is being patted. Medical History:  Dory is spayed, microchipped, UTD on vaccinations and on HWP.     Foster Comments: One look into these expressive brown eyes will have you in love with Dorey. She is just beautiful girl who lives to love and be loved. I would adopt Dorey because she is a gem, but I do have another dog in a relatively small home. She does have a prey drive, so would do better in a home without smaller dogs or cats. The family who adopts Dorey will wonder how they got along without her.

Socialization/training:  Knows basic commands, we are working on shake & he can catch treats in his mouth, house trained, good with other dogs & people Crate trained:  Yes to eat & for a few hours but doesn’t do well for more than 4 hours needs enrichment (bones & toys) Leash trained: Yes, walks well on leash. Activity Level: Energetic young pup so needs exercise, & continued holistic training, very playful with other dogs & people, likes to run fenced yard & go on 2 daily walks. Enjoys cuddling with his person.   Fence: Five foot or higher physical fence preferred. Behavior: Falcor is a super friendly cuddly sweet pup. He prefers to be by his persons side every minute he can except when he takes a break to play with the other dogs. He likes to run with his foster dog sibling in the yard & then comes in to cuddle on the couch. Medical History:  Falcor is deaf but otherwise he is healthy and up to date on vaccinations and heartworm preventative. He is microchipped and neutered. A DNA test was done & came back with German Shorthair Pointer, Lab, & Boxer. Maybe even a teeny bit of Bernese Mountain Dog. An all around 100% hunk of preciousness. 😊 Foster Comments: Falcor is an outgoing, young, energetic boy that is super affectionate, friendly, smart, & loves everyone he meets.  Rumor is he had a rough start in life when he was locked in a shed for 5 months, so it makes sense that he does not like to be alone too long.  He needs a home where he will not be left alone more than 4 hours each day & preferably with another dog friend to play with since he likes to run & play in the yard.  He was a bit pushy when initially making friends with the other 4 dogs in the house but the older dogs are teaching him doggy manners.  He is a persistent but irresistible pup & will finds a way to make friends with every person & dog he meets.   People say dogs don’t like to be hugged but they obviously haven’t met Falcor. He likes to play ball & tug a war.  He hasn’t chewed anything he’s not supposed to except a dish towel so we worked on no counter surfing and he has lots of bones & chew toys to keep him occupied.  DNA test says he is part German Shorthair Pointer]\Bernese Mountain with some Boxer\Labrador Retriever mixed in.  Falcor has a super soft coat, beautiful yellow\brown eyes, & is possibly albino so a pink nose & skin.  Falcor is deaf so I use hand signals but he is easy to communicate with & not afraid of the vacuum, storms, or loud noises.  He likes to ride in the car & enjoys his trips to town saying hello to everyone he meets.  If you are looking for a fun, friendly, sweet dog that will stick by your side Falcor could be the dog for you.

Socialization/training: Fiat entered the kennel in Greece as a small pup. Covid hit and the volunteers were unable to socialize him. He basically got fed for a year with no other human  interaction.  He has come a long way but is still shy of people and strangers.  He prefers men without facial hair.  He has only been around my 6 yr old granddaughter a time or two and did OK.  He has not been around cats.   Crate trained: Yes Leash trained: He does OK on a short lead but pulls,i.e. needs work. When he first arrived he would run in circles (always  counterclockwise) and twist the lead til half its length.  Activity Level: He is a mixture of both. Very calm inside around people he is comfortable with or he will hide in a “safe spot” around strangers (usually anyone other than myself). He loves being outside playing with the other dogs, hunting squirrels in the pecan trees and running  like the wind. He will have bursts of play energy inside. He loves squeaky toys and is learning to chase a ball (no returns!) Fence: He is trained to an invidible fence.   Some sort of fence is preferred but not required if his new family is agreeable to him always being on a lead.  He does love to run..... Behavior: He is very independent but this may be due to his lack of socialization as a pup. He does like to sit next to me on the sofa but he is also fine with sitting on the other end by himself or in his safe corner depending on who is in the room. He loves to sleep on the bed and will snuggle up close. He loves  playing on the bed with me or his doggy siblings. He sleeps throughout the night until I get up at 7-7:30 AM. He has occasionally woken me up in the middle of the night to go outside.  He rarely comes to me asking for attention but will accept attention when given to him. He is improving along these lines. .When outside, if someone he doesn’t know comes up he will circle us barking making smaller and smaller circles until he can sniff the person. If we are sitting on the screen porch he will slowly approach and sniff and maybe let another person touch him.  Medical History:  Fiat had some GI issues when he first arrived but those have all cleared up. He is UTD on vaccinations, neutered, microchipped, and on Simparica Trio for HWP/fleas and ticks.  . His microchip has migrated down his left  front leg and you can feel it when you rub down his shoulder towards curve of his elbow. It’s not medical but he has dew claws on all legs so remember to clip them when he has a pedicure. Fiat originates from Greece where Leishmaniasis is endemic. He tested negative before coming to the USA, but the parasite can remain dormant in the system for many years, so potential adopters must be willing to commit to annual testing for the next 7 years. Typically, the test needs to be sent to a special lab, but any regular vet can draw the blood and send it to the lab. The cost of the test seems to vary widely by area, but is approximately $150-$250. Foster Comments: Fiat is from Greece. He and his 3 siblings were found as strays when they were about 4 weeks old. They were rescued to a kennel but Covid hit and our volunteers could not visit to socialize the pups. It seems that all he got for almost a year was food and very little human contact. He is a sweet little guy who has made a lot of progress since Santa brought him on Christmas Eve 2020. He is still very scared of other people especially men with facial hair. My son, who is clean shaven, visited and Fiat did better around him so my husband has shaved. While more accepting of Andy, Fiat is still scared of him. Fiat will sit by me or on the other end of the sofa to watch TV when Andy is in the room. While crate trained, the door stays open and he has decided that on the bed or sofa is much preferable.  He eats around the other dogs in the kitchen with no aggression. He sits nicely and eats treats with the other dogs although treats are still new and he can be hesitant to actually eat them. He is a little possessive of his chew bone or toys and will tell the other dogs to leave him alone but we have never had any physical confrontations. The closest we’ve had is when my son’s puppy wouldn’t accept “no stay away” signals from Fiat but Fiat handled it appropriately. He plays well with my dogs and loves to chase with them in the yard. Inside play is somewhat limited unless on top of the bed! We have 2-3 acres within an invisible fence.  He is trained to the IF and stays in the yard. When I tell him it’s time to “go inside” he will run to the door and wait for me to let him in.  He sleeps in the bed with me. He will snuggle close or move to the foot of the bed. He sleeps all night  long and will stay quiet until I get up around 7-7:30 (even if I have to get up in the middle of the night.) If I try to catch up on emails on the phone before getting out of bed he will give me kisses in the ear and likes to play on the bed in the AM. He will come to me for attention but that is not the norm. He accepts all of the attention I bring to him. He sleeps through thunderstorms but will startle with loud/sharp/unusual noises and sudden movements during the daytime. He does well at the groomer’s except that he is petrified of the blow dryer and will panic. Towel dries only. He loves to “load up” and go for a ride in the car . He rides well in the back seat, sometimes he will put his head between the seats or ride shotgun. He has done well on  our trips to Tractor Supply . Heaccepted a treat from a man in line  (which he didn’t eat) .Going to the beach was scarey as both the water and the people were new.  I hope to be able to do more beach trips now that the tourists are leaving at the end of summer. One thing I have noticed is that when we have company and there is a lot of confusion, Fiat “comes out” of that occasion doing better but when things revert to the quiet of just Andy and I, he takes a step back. So it is possible that a busier household would help him adjust. We just don’t have that to offer him since we live in the country and do not run the TV or radio continually. He really is a sweet guy. His hair has gotten longer and scruffier giving him such appeal. His little fu manchu (or catfish whiskers)is so cute. He will need a family with a lot of love and patience. He prefers females but I can’t rule out a patient man, older children might be OK but again they would need to be patient for him to learn them. He enjoys other dogs but that is not a requirement.

Socialization/Training: Finn has been to a trainer and spent 10 days with them learning rules & boundaries. He has been trained with an e-collar and respects people with or without it on. He knows how to sit, lay down, shake, place (get on a dog bed, dog cot, or whatever you point to and stay on it until you tell him otherwise), come, stay, tell a secret, and is ready to learn every trick you can think of. He does very well and gets worn out with a lot of mental stimulation. He is extremely smart & willing to please. He has been to dog parks & doggy day care and does very well there. He has not been cat tested but that can be done if necessary! Crate Trained: Yes! Finn is crate trained but does not need one. He is very good when left loose in the house. Leash Trained: Yes! He does occasionally pull but is trained to heal Activity Level: Finn is a very chill dog but needs *LOTS* of exercise. He needs to go on daily walks, hikes, swims, or anything that will wear this boy out. He will act out if he is bored.  Fence: Finn would be ok in a home with or without a fence. If the adopter does not have a fence, they must be committed to a lot of exercise with this boy. Any kind of fence is ok; He is very respectful of boundaries and will not jump out!  Behavior: Finn is extremely smart and very food motivated. The trainer he spent 10 days with claims “you could teach him nuclear physics with a pocket full of treats.” He is very willing and motivated to be a good boy. He is a dog that needs a lot of stimulation and exercise to be his best self. He will act out occasionally if he is not exercised and he becomes bored. He must go into a home with someone who is not afraid to tell him who is boss. Finn thrives in a structured home with a true “Alpha human.” Medical History: Healthy, neutered, microchipped, HW-, and up to date on all shots! He is kept on monthly heartworm prevention. Foster Comments: Hi friends! My name is Finn and I have a crazy past. I have been surrendered by my “forever home” three times now, so I am looking for someone who truly wants me forever! My first family surrendered me because my dad went off to school and his parents didn’t want me anymore. My second family surrendered me to A&B because I was not a perfect fit for their home as I am a very high energy pup and need LOTS of exercise. And my third family returned me after only 5 days because I was having a hard time deciding who the Alpha was in the house and they were not prepared to help me understand. I am a really good boy though! I want to make you so so happy but sometimes it is hard. If I get bored, I tend to become overwhelmed with emotions and can get snappy, just like humans! My foster mom sent me to a really awesome place where I got to hang out with a trainer. They taught me what it was like to live in a structured house & have boundaries. They said I am one of the smartest dogs they have ever met! How cool!! I love other dogs but would prefer to live in a home without another dog or with a smaller, submissive female dog. I do OK with male dogs but sometimes I feel threatened by them, especially around my human. I really connect with my human and do not like to share them and think they are the best thing since sliced meat! I do not really enjoy toys or chasing balls. I’m more of an adventurer! I would love to go to a home with someone who enjoys hiking, running, swimming, boating, or anything and everything active! I love to be a couch potato as well! I must be touching my human at all times and would love to be your little freckled shadow! My foster mom says I need to go to a home with someone who is an alpha and is in charge. I think that is funny because I think I should be in charge! She says I am wrong… Anyways, I’ve got to get back to adventuring & exploring! I hope I get to meet you super soon! I can’t wait to find my real forever home! Foster Location: Lexington, KY Volunteer transport can be arranged in the Continental US within a 1,000-mile distance between adopters & foster home.

Socialization/training: Guillermo is a very high energy guy. He needs obedience and house training work continued. He is very sweet and happy! Crate trained: Yes Leash trained: Yes Activity Level: Very high energy. Would love to go on walks, jog, hiking.  Fence: Guillermo absolutely needs a physical fence. No on invisible fence, it must be a physical fence. Behavior: If you are looking for a sweet, energetic guy that would love to go on adventures with you, this is your guy. Gill would make a great hiking/jogging partner. He loves to be with his family and would love to share your adventures! He would be better suited for older children with his energy level.  Medical History: He is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines and flea meds. He has gone through Heartworm treatment, is now on heartworm prevention, and is in excellent health. Foster Comments:  Gill is known as the big goofy at our house! He has a ton of energy but is so sweet. What a personality!! He definitely keeps ya laughing. He is young and still has a way to go with training. He will require someone with a lot of time and patience for the big puppy that he is!

Socialization/training:  The vet estimated her to be 1-2 years old, but please don’t tell Millie. She thinks she is a puppy and displays some chewing tenancies you often see in a younger dog. She is easily redirected to a chew toy, but you will have to be mindful of your shoes, just like you would with any puppy! She is great with other dogs and shows no dominance tendencies. Millie would do well in a home with other dogs, but wouldn’t mind being an only-dog to someone willing to give her more attention. Crate trained: Millie sleeps in a crate at night, although she would prefer to be closer to the humans and resident dog. She has progressed to staying out in the house while the family is away. We’ve tested her up to 4 hours with no accidents or mischief. She seems to snooze on the dog bed while no one is at home. Leash trained: Millie has covered more than 200 miles on a leash while in foster care and she does great! She has worked her way up to running a few miles at a time and would make a wonderful companion to exercise with, if you’re into that sort of thing. She wouldn’t mind sticking to sniff walks if that’s more your speed! Activity Level: Medium. Millie wakes up ready to go in the morning. After a walk/run and  play time with the resident dog, she is content to hang out and nap/play with her toys near the humans. She gets the zoomies again at night, but settles down after dinner. Fence: A fence is recommended. Millie has enjoyed time in the backyard, particularly if the resident dog is out and willing to play. She has not challenged the fence by jumping or digging, but she does try to figure out how to open the gate. Behavior: Millie came into foster care skittish, but starved for attention. At her first visit, the vet commented on what a sweet-natured girl she is, and thought she had potential to be a very well-trained dog. The foster family has two children—5 and 7 year old boys. Millie can be a little unsure of the tiny humans, particularly when they move quickly. She has never shown any signs of aggression and will choose to approach the children and lick their faces when they are sitting down. However, when they are in motion, the herding dog in her likes to alert you with barking. Medical History: Millie is spayed, microchipped, up to date on all vaccinations and taking heartworm preventative and Bravecto. She came to foster care 20 pounds underweight and with a moderate case of mange. Three meals a day and plenty of peanut butter Kongs have gotten her very close to her ideal weight in just a few weeks. Her skin issues have resolved and been cleared by a veterinarian. She gets fuzzier by the day. Foster Comments: If you like a dog with a story, this could be the girl for you! Millie was found at the end of a country road looking like she had given up. A good Samaritan (who happened to be a dog trainer!) scooped her up and got her on the right path to rescue. In her time with us, Millie has healed physically and really started to come out of her shell. She went from being afraid of every noise in suburbia to feeling very comfortable in our home. She has discovered luxuries like air conditioning, dog beds, squeaky toys and treats, and she really appreciates them! It takes her a minute to warm up to new people, but I think she will continue to move past this. She is quick to greet our family and loves to be near us. It is obvious she wants to be someone’s companion. Millie’s fur is growing in the sweetest fluffy white, and she has what we’ve dubbed a “bandit mask” over her eyes and ears. She has precious freckles on her nose and one spot on her back. Everyone comments on what a pretty girl she is! Millie has a spunky, fun personality. I’m confident she will make someone very happy!

Socialization/training:  Charming Moira LOVES her people! In fact, she is mastering her Velcro dog title and prefers to have her person in sight, always, and remain in close proximity.  If she wakes up from a nap alone, she will trot around the house to seek me out.  She gets along with everyone she meets, including dogs, and politely and adorably presents her paw when she sits before you.  She prefers people to other pups but remains neutral and non-aggressive to other 4-legged competitors for human affection.  She loves to go for rides in the car and is always eager to hop in when the door is open, even if you are just removing groceries.  She is learning her name and responds well to my voice.  While in the house and yard, she comes when called and responds to whistles. Crate trained: Moira is not eager to go in the crate and have the door shut but will enter it on her own and sleep at night with the door open. She has no problem with accidents when in the crate for 8 hours at night. When left alone for short periods, less than 3 hours, she is crated and is working on keeping her crate pee-free.  She might have a little separation issue and be less thrilled about the closed door.  This is a work in progress. Leash trained: She does well on a leash but does pull when she sees critters in typical setter fashion.  Activity Level: Moira is a low-key, laid-back girl inside the house and has become a bit more active outside.  She joins the two resident dogs on a race to the back of the yard when they are first let out in the morning.  She’s been known to chase a few bunnies and squirrels.  She enjoys chews such has dental chews and bully sticks.  She likes short walks in the neighborhood (1-2 miles) and seems satisfied, but also enjoys longer walks (2-3 miles) at the lake park.  Riding on a paddle board (not much of a swimmer) is her cool trick.  She is steady and stoic on the board.  I imagine would do well in kayaks, canoes and really any boat if she is with her people.  We haven’t gone over 3 miles hiking with her because she seems to slow down but her endurance will improve!  It already has in the few weeks we’ve had her. Fence: A fence is desired because she does wander when not leashed and may get carried away with chasing a critter.  Low-key Moira could be a candidate for leash walks if there is no fence.  She uses a dog door. Behavior: Moira loves to be close to her people.  She is most happy when snuggling on the couch or in bed with her people.  She loves to eat but hasn’t shown aggression, or resource guarding with other dogs nearby.  She will drink from our water bowl at the same time as our resident dogs. Moira sleeps very soundly and startles easily when you touch her while she is sleeping.  So, a light touch to wake her is recommended.  When startled, she may react with a nip, so younger children could potentially be problematic.  Dogs who have been rescued have had to protect themselves on the streets and can sometimes have an instinct to protect themselves when they are sleeping.  Medical History:  Moira came from Turkey, is spayed, UTD on vaccinations, micro-chipped, and on HWP. When Moira arrived, she had flea dermatitis from an allergic reaction from fleabites and was put on Apoquel, as the medicated shampoo was not adequately clearing her skin up.  She had some thin/bald spots due to her excessive scratching, but her skin is healing, and her fur is growing back.  She is currently taking a low dose of Apoquel one time a day.  Time will tell if she needs further treatments/medication.  Moira also arrived to her foster home with heavy ear wax and possibly an ear infection.  Despite cleaning everyday one ear was confirmed as being infected and required twice daily cleaning with an antibiotic/cleaner.  Her ears are clear now and she just requires weekly ear cleaning.  She recently finished 30-days of doxycycline for Ehrlichia, a tick-borne disease.  Unlike Lyme disease, this does not have chronic long-term consequences in dogs. Moira will come with her passport and medical records. Moira originates from Turkey where Leishmaniasis is endemic. She tested negative before coming to the USA, but the parasite can remain dormant in the system for many years, so potential adopters must be willing to commit to annual testing for the next 7 years. Typically, the test needs to be sent to a special lab, but any regular vet can draw the blood and send it to the lab. The cost of the test seems to vary widely by area, but is approximately $150-$250. Foster Comments:  Moira is a charming older girl that loves affection and wishes to always remain close to her person.  She is gentle and quiet and doesn’t demand lots of walks.  She enjoys car rides and strolls in the park or through the neighborhood.  She is excellent with people and doesn’t mind other dogs.  Her ideal family would take her with them wherever they go.  She is well behaved and calm, so outdoor dining is not a problem with Moira, and neither is paddle boarding!

Socialization/training:  Serefina has had no formal training. Serefina has missed most of the critical age for socialization due to being in the shelter during the Covid 19 shutdowns as a puppy. It is recommended that Serefina goes to a behavioralist that specializes in socialization and fear. Good with Children:  Serefina needs a child free home. Good with Dogs: Yes, however, it did take her several weeks to be comfortable with her foster canine siblings. She now plays well with all in our home, including some toy breeds. Good with Cats: NO. She chases and will grab. House trained: She is well scheduled. Stressful situations will mess with her schedule. Crate trained: Yes, very much recommended, the crate is her safe space. Serefina does eat in her crate when the house is quiet. Leash trained: This is a work in progress. Activity Level:  Active. Fence: Fencing is required. Since Serefina has some extreme fear issues, Serefina needs a secure physical fence. Standard chain-link or higher. Serefina is not a candidate for any type of ties outs or open yard.  Behavior: Serefina is very shy, and it takes a long time to warm up but once she has warmed up to you, she enjoys the attention and will give kisses in return. It must all be on her terms.  She seems to prefer men over women. She needs a person that will work with her to continue to build her confidence and help her overcome her fears and shyness. She likes hanging out on the couch with her foster family.  Her favorite spots are on back of the couch watching the birds & squirrels out the window or draping herself across your lap. She does have a good sense of prey drive. Serefina is learning to play with toys and enjoying balls & stuffies and has done a good job at entertaining herself. She will pick up and chew small items like a lego or sock. Medical History: Serefina is spayed, microchipped, and UTD on her required vaccinations. The entire litter of pups contracted distemper and parvo while in Greece despite being vaccinated, but she recovered. Serefina is currently on Fluoxetine to take the edge off her fears and anxiety. This will most likely need to be increased when she first gets to her adopters for a period of time. We believe at some point in her life, she will be able to be taken off those. Serefina is on monthly Heartworm and flea preventative. Her next leishmaniasis test is due in December 2021. Serefina originates from Greece where Leishmaniasis is endemic. She tested negative before coming to the USA, but the parasite can remain dormant in the system for many years, so potential adopters must be willing to commit to annual testing for the next 7 years. Typically, the test needs to be sent to a special lab, but any regular vet can draw the blood and send it to the lab. The cost of the test seems to vary widely by area, but is approximately $150-$250. Foster Comments: Serefina and her littermates were found with their mom on the streets of Greece when Serefina was roughly 6 weeks old. Not long after being found, the world shut down to the Covid-19 pandemic leaving the little family in the shelter with very little human contact. When she was 11 months old, Serefina finally got her passport to head to the states and her long awaited foster home. It has been long road since coming to the States, learning about living in the house and dealing with humans. Progress has been slow at times but when we have a breakthrough, it is a big step forward. It is very clear that Serefina will need a special home that understands and is willing to work with her fear and self-confidence issues, this work will not be rewarded overnight, it will take weeks to months. Serefina needs a home that is quiet without a lot of coming and going. She will need a home where someone is home most of the time and have friendly, playful canines in the home to help show her the ropes and help her feel secure. Serefina still does puppy things plus with her fears, for her safety, she needs a home that is willing to use a crate with her. She likes to cuddle in our bed for short periods, she will lay right on top of you and enjoy her ears or belly being scratched. She may do fine there all night, but we have not tested it. Serefina is afraid of leashes and at this time would not make a good walking/running partner and most likely need to be carried in and out of the house to go potty in the beginning. Potential adopters must have the understanding that they cannot force themselves onto Serefina. She needs to be able to do things on her terms and cannot be rushed or any progress will be lost. The process will take some time, but the reward of her love is worth it. Adopters must also be willing to spend a lot of time at home with her. We believe with continued trust and confidence building, Serefina will blossom into a wonderful family member. Despite her slow beginning in life, this girl is full of Setter smiles and tail wags. Please, only apply if you will welcome Serefina on your furniture, have Setter experience, and willing to work for socialization. Adopters must be able to lift 35 pounds. Serefina will be adopted as a companion pet only, no hunting or free-range running. Due to her fears, we will only consider an adoptive home for her that is within a 500 mile radius of our home.

Socialization/training: Yara knows sit, down, come. We are working on stay currently. Crate trained: No, she has serious anxiety about crates, and should not be spending time or sleeping in one. She has free range of the house without accidents or damages, so a crate is not necessary for her daily life. Leash trained: Yes. Good with Cats: She gets along with some cats, if they are fine with her friendliness then she is fine with them, but she is persistent in wanting their attention which some cats dislike. Good with Kids: : Yes! She loves children and is very gentle with them. Activity level: High. Very playful and sweet, enjoys playtime with other dogs, and spending long swaths of time “patrolling” the yard for squirrels, birds, and cats. We go on one 1-2 mile walk or run per day, and she will spend about 2-3 hours in the yard per day. She also really enjoys the dog park and has learned to go down the slide on the agility course. Fence: Required. MUST be a 6 ft fence, privacy is preferred, she has even climbed that twice, she needs supervision outside. Behavior: INCREDIBLY sweet. She is a snuggler extraordinaire and gets along great with the resident 12 year old IS-mix. She enjoys her soft toys and she carries them around the house with her. She is very smart, aims to please, and will learn behaviors and commands quickly. She has an incredible prey drive and she spends a lot of the day looking out on the yard from the porch when she is not actually in it! She is very trustworthy in the house alone, no accidents or chewing/destruction habits. Medical History: Had an ear infection, but is off of antibiotics now. Currently UTD on heartworm and flea/tick prevention. She is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations. Her next lesihmaniasis test is due in April 2022. Yara originates from Turkey where Leishmaniasis is endemic. She tested negative before coming to the USA, but the parasite can remain dormant in the system for many years, so potential adopters must be willing to commit to annual testing for the next 7 years. Typically, the test needs to be sent to a special lab, but any regular vet can draw the blood and send it to the lab. The cost of the test seems to vary widely by area, but is approximately $150-$250. Foster Comments: Yara is the sweetest girl looking for a loving and active family to call her own. She is a snuggler at night, but loves to spend her days patrolling the yard and going on walks. She gets along very well with other dogs and loves to play with other pups. This happy-go-lucky girl would get along well with a fur-sibling or be fine as an only dog. She adores people and would be the perfect dog for a family or just an active individual.

Socialization/training:  Beau is well socialized with people. He is very affectionate and enjoys being petted and being physically in contact with people. Crate trained: Beau is not crate trained. We have not had him in a crate since his arrival as our foster dog. Leash trained: Beau is doing very well on a leash and during walks. He is capable of walking side by side with a person, but could benefit from consistent training. Attention needs to be paid when he spots squirrels and small animals such as rabbits. He is a natural hunter and may pull you if you are not in control and may try to chase rabbits and squirrels. Beau is responsive to commands, understands “no” and “leave it” should he fixate on possible small animal to chase. A training leash is highly recommended. Activity Level: Beau is very laid back and mellow. He often naps during the day. He appreciates at least 2 walks daily. Periodically, he will play with other dogs should they be part of the family. Fence: A 4 ft fence or higher is required for Beau. He is on the larger side and capable of jumping on items and leaping over a 4ft fence if he is determined to chase after a rabbit or squirrel. Supervision is suggested with a 4ft fence. Behavior: Beau is a very affectionate dog. He enjoys being around his “pack.” He gets along very well with other dogs in the family, but he should be introduced to them slowly. He does not exhibit aggression at home but is wary of other dogs during walks when they approach him and may growl. When he is anxious, he will pant excessively, which he will do less and less as he grows accustomed to his home and family. Medical History: Beau is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, is on heartworm prevention medication and on (Amazon brand) Solimo Flea, Tick and mosquito topical medication. Beau has gone through treatment to address a tick-borne infection, and he has also recently been treated for intestinal worms. He does have allergies, and a constant clear nasal drip is visible. He also has had several hot spots due to itching and may require medication such as Apoquel or Benadryl and regular medicated baths. Beau recently had an undetermined health episode where it could have been a severe allergic reaction, a GI issue or a seizure during a walk. His adoptive family will need to monitor him going forward for any similar reoccurring symptoms. Beau originates from Turkey where Leishmaniasis is endemic. He tested negative before coming to the USA, but the parasite can remain dormant in the system for many years, so potential adopters must be willing to commit to annual testing for the next 7 years. Typically, the test needs to be sent to a special lab, but any regular vet can draw the blood and send it to the lab. The cost of the test seems to vary widely by area, but is approximately $150-$250. Foster Comments: Beau is a beautiful dog; he is quite a looker! Everyone he meets during walks comments on his handsome appearance. Since his arrival from Turkey, Beau has become physically healthy. As a middle-aged dog, there are some mysteries which came with him and we cannot explain, such as his tendency to bark and want to chase certain vehicles like large trucks and landscaping vehicles. When he wants attention, he will come to you and paw or nose tap you until you acknowledge him – and repeat it if you stop! When you are working or on conference calls, he will stop by and remind you that there are better things in life, like him! Like many English Setters, he will jump on you when he is extremely happy to see you. He’s also a bird, squirrel and small animal watcher, and may sit patiently until the right moment to strike! Beau does ok on his own, but he prefers companions and being social. He would do well as a family dog where he is given consistent attention (same as other pets if present), and where he is not left alone for extended periods. Foster Location: Glenview, IL Volunteer transport can be arranged in the Continental US within a 1,000-mile distance between adopters & foster home.

Socialization/training: Nisha has had no formal training. She has been exposed inside/outside the house with other dogs and cats and has seemed to get along very well with them. Because she has undergone HW treatment, she had periods of limited exposure to help decrease stimulation during the treatment period. Generally speaking, Nisha is a laid back and friendly dog. She loves being around people and enjoys a good cuddle and belly rub by anyone who will give her one. She is great around children, she has been around kids as young as 5 years old. Her foster family consists of 3 girls ages 14 and 11 year old twins. From what we’ve observed, it does help to have Nisha around/exposed to those who are very comfortable and not timid around dogs. Nisha seems to have a good sense of when someone is timid and sometimes will show signs of protectiveness or being defensive by barking or growling at them. Nisha does not beg for human food however she seems to know when one of us is eating dessert, we’ve noticed she becomes very interested when we are eating something sweet. She will like a good dog treat every now and again but doesn’t really care for treats otherwise. Very limited training has had to be done because she is such a laid back dog. She seems to have learned the word “no” and “up/down” and acts accordingly. We are still working on “sit” but she does respond to her name when called. Crate trained: Nisha seemed to do fine in a crate when she came to us; however a crate has not been used otherwise. We do not crate her when we are home or away. During her time with us, Nisha has been able to be left on her own without issue, she is not a danger to herself. She has free roam of the house when we aren’t home and is allowed on chairs and couches at any time. Leash trained: Nisha does pretty well on the leash but does pull/tries to chase squirrels in typical setter fashion. She will sometimes get distracted on walks staring down birds at a distance. Redirection on the walks is sometimes needed. Activity Level: Nisha can be described as a pretty laid back dog. In the house, she either lays near one of her foster family members or likes to cuddle with any one of them. Unfortunately an accurate energy level cannot be provided because she has had to stay quiet/have little to no stimulation due to her heartworm treatment. From what we know, she is calm in the house and doesn’t move or run around all that much (doesn’t jump on tables/counter tops/people for food or anything like that). She was welcome to jump and lay on couches and beds in her foster home but was obedient if told to lay on the ground or her doggy bed. Prior to Nisha’s start of HW treatment and post HW treatment, she has been taken on neighborhood walks that would last anywhere from 20-30 minutes at a time. She does like chasing squirrels and eyeing birds from a distance, so she sometimes gets distracted and will just sit and stare. Fence: Nisha has been fostered in a home with a backyard fence and she has never tried to jump over or try to find a way out. She has enjoyed the backyard unleashed without issue. She enjoys laying on the grass or porch but will once a while get that urge to race back and forth from once fenced area to another teasing the birds or squirrels. With her foster family, most of her exercise would come from casual leashed walks.   Behavior: Nisha is a very friendly dog. She enjoys being around people but is also independent and can relax on her own. She gets along well with other dogs and has been exposed to cats which she also seems to get along with just fine. She loves a good belly rub and enjoys being carried. Nisha is usually quiet but will bark occasionally when she sees something outside the window. Those not used to being around dogs may get startled when she barks. It also helps to have dog savvy people/children who know how to be around dogs. Nisha seems to sense when someone is scared or timid around her and can become defensive. Medical History: Nisha is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, and is microchipped. She has a history of heartworm which was treated May-July 2021. Early on tapeworm was noted on stool exam and was treated accordingly. She also has itchy spots and goes through periods of scratching but has not been treated with any form of medication for this issue. She is on monthly heartworm prevention. Nisha originates from Turkey where Leishmaniasis is endemic. She tested negative before coming to the USA, but the parasite can remain dormant in the system for many years, so potential adopters must be willing to commit to annual testing for the next 7 years. Typically, the test needs to be sent to a special lab, but any regular vet can draw the blood and send it to the lab. The cost of the test seems to vary widely by area, but is approximately $150-$250. Foster Comments: Nisha is a loving, cute little setter that will fit right in with any dog loving family. Since her arrival from Turkey, she has overcome heartworm and took treatment like a champ. Post-treatment we are starting to see the more energetic and outgoing side of her. She enjoys walks, sprints and of course like most setters, eyeing and trying to go after those squirrels and birds. She gets along wonderfully with other dogs and is friendly with anyone who will give her dog loving attention. Nisha does fine on car rides and would occasionally tag along with her foster family for outings but she is also ok in the house independently – she has been left uncrated having free roam of the entire house. Nisha is mostly a quiet and relaxed dog in the house and even when she is outside she is easy with other people and the sight of other dogs. Our 3 children absolutely adore Nisha and would love to keep her but we also have the vision to help foster other rescues in order to help them get to their forever homes and families. Our ask is that her new family remain in touch with us and provide occasional updates/pictures. We would also be happy to help watch Nisha when needed if adoptive family happens to remain close to Oak Park, IL.
