Sprout

Neutered Male
Breed: Rat Terrier
Age: 9 years 1 month
Important Information: Good with Some Dogs (No large dogs), Good with Cats, Good with Kids, Good with Adults, Likes to be in your lap, Apartment OK, Playful, Affectionate

Sprout Rat Terrier

Foster Home Feedback: “Sprout is a smart pup! He is a quick learner and knows some basic commands. He also is pretty good at coming when called but can have selective hearing depending on the situation. He also is familiar with pet doors! Sprout is good with children, strangers, and cats. He does have a fear of large dogs and will stay away from them. Sprout is a perfect lap pet and LOVES attention! If you think he’d be a good fit, please apply today!”

Scout

Neutered Male
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Age: 8 months
Important Information: Good with Dogs, Good with Cats

Scout Domestic Short Hair

Foster Home Feedback: “Although he’s becoming a big boy, Scout has the typical kitten energy. He loves playing with other cats & kittens, as well as a number of kitty toys. He’s not biased and will play with just about anything. In fact, if you put an ice cube in his water dish, you might just find yourself as entertained as him.

“Scout also spends much of his day near a window, watching the birds & bunnies. He’ll sometimes run from one window to another in attempt to catch a bird (he has fun chasing pesky flies that get in the house, too).

“Scout loves his fur friends and would benefit most from a home with furry playmates. When not playing, he likes snuggling up with his humans, other cats and even the foster dog. Scout shows his love for his humans by giving Eskimo kisses and trying to crawl into your arms at bedtime.

“We’ve loved watching Scout grow & mature into the wonderful kitty he is. Though we’ll miss him when he goes, we know he’ll bring much love & joy to his new and furever family.

“We would highly recommend that Scout is adopted into a home that has other animals, he is very social with both cats and dogs.”

Zoey

Spayed Female
Breed: Papillon
Age: 10 years
Important Information: Good with dogs, needs a patient family that is willing to allow her to open her shell over time

Zoey Papillon

Foster Home Feedback: “Meet Zoey, a 10-year-old papillon. Quiet, yet strong, she’s a lot like her namesake from the television show, West Wing. As a rescued breeding dog, she’s still learning to enjoy the things every pup should experience in life, but she’s very smart and learns quickly, especially by watching her younger foster brother, a spaniel mix.

“Right now, she’s learning how to walk with a leash, use the bathroom outside, walk up stairs, and enjoy treats! Exploring the sights, sounds, and smells of her fenced-in-backyard is one of her favorite things to do. She loves chasing and playing with her foster brother, but never roughly. For Zoey, the perfect forever family would be caring, kind, and patient as she learns. Apply to adopt this tender-hearted girl today!”

Lila

Female, soon to be spayed
Breed: Great Pyrenees/ Anatolian Shepard
Age: 10 years
Important Information: Good with Some Dogs (No large dogs), Good with Kids, Good with Adults, Somewhat vocal, Playful, Affectionate, Intelligent

Lila Great Pyrenees/ Anatolian Shepard

Foster Home Feedback: “Hi! My name is Lila (lee-la). I’m a fan of ‘Despicable Me,’ so I will sum myself up with this phrase, “I’M SO FLUFFY!” I am a very sweet, excitable girl who LOVES attention and pleasing my humans. I am kid-friendly and love seeking attention from my foster family’s 14-month-old son.

“I don’t discriminate, I love seeking affection from both women AND men. My family is currently working on me not barking for their attention since I just love them so much!

“I don’t mean to toot my own horn (but, BEEP BEEP!)… I’m kind of a smart girl! I know how to sit, lay, and shake. I’ll even roll over so you can scratch my belly. I do have some resource guarding with my food, so I do need to be fed in my kennel.

“I love to keep my humans’ feet warm at night and quietly roam around the house. I DO love my family and sometimes get so excited for attention that I jump up, but mom says we are working on this along with my loose-leash walking (I’m just so curious about nature and smelling all the smells!), and occasional barking.

“I am crate trained and haven’t messed in the house once—not even a tinkle! I do shed a lot, but mom says she needs to clean the floors anyway since I have 4 brother-dog housemates. A simple weekly brushing should help keep me looking fresh!

“I don’t always see eye-to-eye with my human’s big Greyhound, but the little dogs don’t bother me, because of this, I would do better in a home with smaller dogs or no dogs until I’m more confident that my humans won’t leave me. I am very scared that I will not be loved and my family will give up.

“I’m a protector of my humans and their flock and tend to herd them around… “Round ’em up, little doggies!” I’m a little shy at first, but once we get to know each other, I will be your best friend! I’m looking for my forever home. Will it be with you?”

Norman Reedus

“Norman Reedus is named after the much-loved actor on ‘The Walking Dead.’ He is as charming, loyal and handsome as the actor, so it was a fitting name.

Diamond In The Ruff

“Norman is very friendly with people. We think he would be great with children as well. He was scared for a few days, but as soon as he realized he was safe, he was all about the attention. He will hug our legs when we try to leave the room he is staying in. He likes to talk to us too. He does really cute little trills to welcome us.”

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Age: 1year 4 months
Neutered Male
Declawed: No

Important Information: Norman is good with dogs, cats and kids. He’s using the litterbox with no marking or issues.

Meredith

“Meredith is the purr-fect combo of mature and playful. She plays with toys, uses the scratchers and climbs on cat trees. She is mature enough to not climb screens, curtains or people’s legs. She enjoys hanging out with her person and sleeping high in a cat tree for alone time. She is not an instant cuddler. She needs time to accustom herself to new surroundings and then she relaxes and starts to bond with her humans.

Diamond In The Ruff

“Her foster states that she is a quick learner and continues to be respectful of the furniture and counters. Mer’s latest thing is she has just discovered fuzzy blankets and loves them! New photos have been added of her enjoying a white fuzzy blanket that she has claimed as her own. She is an independent cat who likes to be the only child when it comes to other animals. She wants to be the queen of her castle.”

Meredith

Breed: Domestic Short Hair/ Tabby
Age: 1 year 9 months
Spayed Female
Declawed: No

Important Information: Meredith is not good with dogs or other cats. She is good with older, considerate kids only.

Roo

“Roo is an amazing little guy. He is very tiny but makes sure everyone knows he is around. Roo is very shy and skittish. He is going to need someone who understands that it will take some time to help his confidence grow.

Diamond In The Ruff

“Roo enjoys other animals and would do best if he had a companion to play with and learn from. He likes his kennel to nap and eat in. Roo is working on harness/leash training and is getting better at potty training every day.”

Diamond In The Ruff

Breed: Chihuahua
Age: 9 months
Neutered Male

Important Information: Good with dogs, cats, adults, and older, considerate kids but still is timid and skittish to new people.

Scheels Fargo

Jasmyne

“Jasmyne is new to the rescue so her foster will be providing us with some feedback in a few days.”

Diamond In The Ruff

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Age: 8 years 11 months
Spayed Female
Declawed: Yes

Important Information: Jasmyne is housetrained. She is 14 pounds.

Diamond In The Ruff

Sebastian

“Sebastian is a very sweet boy who still has a lot of kitten energy. He loves to wrestle with his foster brothers so he would be great in a home with other playful cats. He has been using the litterbox with no issues. He is currently trying to learn how to play without using claws and teeth so a home with older children would be the best fit.”

Diamond In The Ruff

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Age: 1 year 3 months
Neutered Male
Declawed: No

Important Information: Sebastian is good with cats and kids. There are no dogs in his foster home so Diamond In The Ruff is unsure of how he would be with them.
