About Major

Major loves his friends, loves walks, and loves lying in the grass and soaking up the sunshine. His favorite thing these days is a walk to--and into--the river. He's a very smart dog who likes doing obedience exercises and working with his person, and who then likes just wandering around sniffing everything and exploring his environment. Major is looking for a relaxed, knowledgeable person who will give him space and guidance. We rescued Major after he had been in the shelter over 3 years, and we think he would do best with a mature, single owner, and with a house and yard rather than an apartment. We would like to find a foster or adopter who will work with us and with a trainer to address Major's behavioral/emotional needs. Here's your chance to learn more about canine behavior and training, and to help save a life! Major's life was in danger before we rescued him, and getting him out of the shelter was just the first step in saving him. Now he needs a dedicated foster or adopter.

Bella was dumped. Now she is being fostered by someone who witnessed the outdoor part of her growth from tiny puppy to abandoned adolescent. Bella's foster says: "In the first three days, we saw a terrified little girl that still has hope and and trust in humans, even though she was failed originally. She didn’t even know what a simple dog toy was. Most likely never had a collar around her neck and most definitely never walked or been on a leash. She knew she was safe from being all alone in a field across from a cemetery, waiting for someone to come back. A once happily loved pup, she became a moving ornament that barked in the backyard out of loneliness and sadness. I see that sadness and disappointment in her eyes even with the happiness of all the love and care we give her to trust even more that her life will not be as it once was. I have held off on sweeping the inside of the house after seeing Bella cower with her tail tucked so tight when my husband went to sweep the hay off the back porch as she sat at my feet. He saw it the same time I did, immediately he stopped. Bella was shaking so terrified. He got down on the patio floor and picked her up into his lap just to hold her reassuring her it’s going to be alright. My heart broke. Was she beaten with a broom? We suspect it. Or has she never seen a broom, cause the amount filth the owner was cleaning and repairing in the house she once lived in. If she was beaten... How can people be so damn cruel to an innocent animal?" Bella is now safe. She needs spay surgery, vaccine boosters, and heartworm treatment. She is among the lucky dogs who are rescued instead of living their entire short lives in a yard, on a chain, or on the streets. Bella is friendly with people and other dogs. She has a foster but if you are interested in adopting Bella, you could foster-to-adopt. show less
