About RHONDA

Some of the dogs we work with have sad stories. And in cases like Rhonda, we know she had a sad story because she was found in the street, alone, unable to move. Rhonda is all healed up now but she sometimes lets us know she is still afraid. We respect her boundaries and move at her pace. And in return, Rhonda lets us know how grateful she is for the love and attention. As one of her shelter advocates has said, once you are Rhonda`s friend, you are golden.Rhonda may always have some stranger danger, and we don`t blame her. She needs someone willing to go slowly with her, who wants to give her all of the comforts she has probably never known before - a soft bed, a gentle touch, yummy treats just for her, and time to build trust.Rhonda has kept to herself when she goes to playgroup. She is tolerant of other dogs but doesn`t necessarily need to live with one. So perhaps you either have a pet-free home, or a non-pushy dog who`s content to simply share space with another dog.Let`s make the rest of Rhonda`s story a happy one, a loving one, a forever one - reach out to us at orangedotcrew@gmail.com for more info! `

This very good boy was initially shy and a bit scared when he first arrived but he`s come out of his shell so much! Alfalfa is now confident and goofy and he LOVES adventure! Whether it be going on a hike at McKinney Falls State Park, or going swimming, or even just hopping in the car for some sightseeing – Alfalfa is your guy!Alfafa is not only curious and adventurous, he is also a smarty pants! He knows several commands (sit, down, and shake), and we`re pretty sure he`d love to learn a few more. Oh, and he is somewhat of a diva… that’s right, Alfafa loves it when you brush his hair. He’ll thank you by wagging his bushy tail and maybe even giving you a kiss or two!As a larger, black dog, Alfafa is often overlooked here. When you walk past his kennel, he`ll bark and jump, but all he`s trying to say is `pick me!`. And he doesn`t understand why nobody ever does pick him :( Alfalfa just needs someone to give him a chance, which is why we`re hoping to find him a foster home, so they can see the amazing dog he is without all the stress of being at the shelter. As a member of the Orange Dot Crew, Alfafa will go home with everything you need, including a crate, harness, goodie bag, a training voucher, and all the support you need. Please email them for more info, or to set up a time to meet him: orangedotcrew@gmail.comFind Orange Dot Crew on Facebook and Instagram! show less

Oh, Alfie! His name is actually Alfred but we only call him that when he`s being naughty. Alfie is young and frustrated and smart... that is a recipe for naughty dog when you are living in the shelter! Alfie also isn`t the most confident doggo. But no worries, Alfie has a big circle of shelter friends and they are helping show him that people are good and the world isn`t so scary!Alfie enjoys taking his time on strolls, leaving no smell un-smelled. He also likes treats and puzzle toys. The car still makes him a little nervous so we`re taking baby steps with car rides but Alfie is getting braver and braver each time.Alfie takes direction nicely and would do well with a patient, savvy foster. He has shown friendly interest in other dogs, but he would definitely need some decompression time and then slow intros.Alfie is a bit handshy and while we don`t like to think of why that is, we do keep it in mind and make sure to go slowly and move very deliberately around him. This cute little shepherd mix is fairly out-of-sorts at the shelter and we`d love to get him into foster so he can catch up on his zzz`s and be the best doggie he can be. In addition to all the regular goodies, Alfie goes home with a couple of bottles of spray cheese - his FAVORITE thank you very much!Reach out to orangedotcrew@gmail.com to learn more! http://petharbor.com/pet.asp?uaid=ASTN.A802396 show less
