About James - Senior

Let me tell you a little story about a very special boy named James. James is believed to be about 10 years old and has lived the majority of that time outside on a chain without proper food, water, shelter, or love. Finally he was taken from that terrible situation to spend the next 7 months in a shelter waiting for rescue. Mostly Muttz stepped up and put James in a foster home where he could be treated for his heartworm disease. Since arriving to PA in Feb James has adjusted very nicely to life in a house with a family. It only took him a week to get housebroken and crate trained. He knows "sit" and is very food motivated. He loves to snuggle and roll around on couches and beds until he falls off. He's a goofy boy with lots of love to give. He's not very active because of his age but still has some energy in him for short bouts of play, either with another dog or a person. Although James is doing well he is not without some issues from his past that his foster family is working on with him. Being starved his whole life he is now very greedy with his food and needs to be fed away from other dogs. He's fine eating in his crate in the same room as his foster siblings. His foster mom has taught him to share the water bowl so hopefully one day other dogs will be able to eat around him without him wanting their food too. Even though he's come a long way with it since he first arrived, he is still learning boundaries with human food too. He is good with older, calmer children as he doesn't understand when people "rough house". James is good with other dogs but is better with females or smaller males. No cats for this guy though. In regards to James's medical needs, he does have an advanced degree of heartworm disease that is being treated. Due to his level of disease increasing the risk of complications that come with treatment, he is receiving a "slow kill" type of treatment that is less risky. This treatment is easy to administer on a monthly basis but can take upwards of 10 months to ensure all heartworms are eliminated from his system. James also does best with sensitive stomach food because other types of food caused diarrhea. His front teeth are worn down probably from trying to eat anything he could find while starving. This does not hinder his ability to eat or even chew on bones. Besides that he is healthy and once his heartworm disease is cured there is no reason to believe that he doesn't have many more years of life left in him. James is neutered and up to date on vaccinations.

Note: This animal is currently receiving heartworm treatment through a slow-kill method.

Becks is a pale pooch with a lot of personality. She is one of the perkiest pups you'll ever meet. Becks is a 4-year-old pittie girl with dalmation-like spots on her ears (they're so cute!). Her ideal home would be an active one. She would love to be a running/jogging partner or a hiking companion. This happy girl is a play MACHINE! She loves toys, swimming and accompanying you wherever you may go. She is amazingly comfortable in the car. Having fun and being as active as can be is what Becks is all about. She also loves kids! Becks is just like any other female. She is a bit choosy and who can blame her? Lady's prerogative, right? This girl knows what she likes in a dog companion. She would prefer a submissive male companion. If you currently have a dog or dogs in your family, a meeting prior to adopting is a must. Becks is a very people friendly dog and she loves kids. When she finally takes a break from being her usual active self, she becomes a SUPER SNUGGLER. Lovin' on YOU and having you love on her is her second favorite thing. Becks is housebroken and crate-trained and does well with basic commands. She is smart and food motivated, so a good treat will nudge her to excel at any given command. Becks is a very unique package of canine character. Are YOU ready to take a run with Becks?

Eda is a 65 pound Boxer/Shepherd mix with a beautiful red fawn coat, white feet and a splash of white on her chest. She is a happy girl and her nub wags at the slightest bit of attention. She loves to be with people and will follow you around the house. Eda loves to snuggle on the couch and will roll over for belly rubs. Eda is energetic, housebroken and does well walking with an Easy Walk Harness. She knows most basic commands (come, sit, lay down, give a paw). Overall, she is a medium energy dog who occasionally gets excited and runs puppy laps around the yard. In the house, Eda loves to play fetch with her toy duckie. Eda is crate trained and is respectful of her foster home when left alone in the house. She loves car rides and is a great traveler. During a ride you might find her napping on a lap or on the back seat.  Eda is cautious with new people and they must be introduced slowly and carefully in order to gain her trust. Once she does trust you though, she will give you ALL of her love. She requires a home with older, considerate children where she can be the only pet in the house. She is not good with other dogs or cats. In a home where she is the only pet, she will love you, cuddle with you and shower you with kisses.  Eda has waited so long to find just the right person, who can love her for all the things she is - someone for whom her limitations are of no concern. Could that person be YOU? You can apply to adopt Eda at www.mostlymuttz.org/adoption-application/.  show less

Grayson is a 3 year-old pitty mix with a lush reddish-brown and white coat. Spunky is a word often used to describe this girl's personality. She loves, loves, loves toys! She will play with them for hours. Doggie kisses and hugs are Grayson's specialty. She likes them so much, you might need to remind her to give them gently. This muscular and active dog is super eager to go on walks, so the Mostly Muttz volunteers are working with Grayson to help improve her leash manners. She is very treat motivated and incredibly smart. We have begun professional training for Grayson. With patient and continued training, she will learn to follow your lead. An active family would be ideal for Grayson because she simply loves the outdoors. Grayson can be selective about other dogs, so a home without other pets would be ideal for her. However, this beautiful girl has come so far since she first arrived at Mostly Muttz Rescue, a home with another dog will be considered if proper introductions are done and time is taken to really find out if Grayson would enjoy the company of the other dog. She would most likely do better with a dog with a laid back personality. Grayson does best with adults, and we think children might just have too much energy for her. This lady has been waiting a long time and is ready for a family of her own. Will you consider inviting Grayson into your home and heart?

At Chesterfield County Animal Services in South Carolina, Kimbo is a long time favorite.  Here is what one volunteer had to say about him: "Good afternoon, Where do I even start… We have a very special case. Kimbo came to our shelter in Chesterfield SC years ago. Kimbo was taken from a home that had several dogs tied out and severely neglected. The owner passed away and all these animals were left with his wife and she could not care for them. He was NOT dog friendly and was heartworm positive when he came in, he is now hw neg. After this many years living at the shelter, everyone has fallen in love with him. The shelter staff treat him as if he was their own. He loves living at the shelter and is not broken by it. He is a happy sweet, smooshy face who loves to run and play tug-o-war and fetch and ADORES people and kids. However, we, the volunteers, have watched his face grey and his wiggly body age and we KNOW there has to be a better life for him. He has watched hundreds upon hundreds of dogs come in and leave but it is never his turn. After all of these years some volunteers did a brief dog test with him on leash and he did fine. He recently had the opportunity to go have a mini-vacation with one of our volunteers who has 3 other dogs. He has met all of them through the door and through his crate. The only time he growled or showed any improper behavior was when one of the volunteers dogs growled at him first and he growled back. No lunging etc. She has been taking him on walks with her female and he mostly ignores her. They have let her off leash and she has sniffed him and he didn’t care at all. They have walked past barking, howling coondogs that were running around a neighbor’s yard only contained by an invisible fence and while he was interested in the ruckus he was very easily redirected. While we do think he should live in his forever home as an only dog, he can easily be around other dogs on leash without any issues.  We really feel now that he has had a taste freedom he really really deserves a chance. With a knowledgeable owner we really believe that he will flourish and be able to live out his last days. We estimate him to be about 8+ years old so he definitely deserves a soft spot to lay his.  We are truly desperate to find this guy his forever home. While he doesn’t mind the shelter, as it is the only place he has ever known love, I know that he deserves so much more. We fear that one day his sweet little body will give out and he will pass away of old age on a cold concrete floor all alone. We understand that this is a huge undertaking for someone to take on, a black, senior pit bull that has spent more than half his life behind bars. BUT I just know he can do it, I know he can love someone with all his being and he deserves that chance, so I will beg and beg until someone sees what I see. Thank you." Mostly Muttz Rescue is hoping to make Kimbo's dream of a furever home come true.  While he currently resides in South Carolina, for an approved adopter willing to love him forever, Mostly Muttz Rescue can transport him and adopt him out through our rescue.  So, if you know what it is like to be passed over again and again, maybe Kimbo is the kindred spirit you've been looking for.  You can apply to adopt Kimbo at www.mostlymuttz.org. show less
