Dogs who are Young (6 mos – 2 years)

Holly

Sex: Female  •   Located in: Arkansas   •   Age: Young

*Holly is being fostered in Arkadelphia, Arkansas.*

Holly is a sweetheart of a dog who has had a very rough start in life.  Despite that, she is the most loving dog you will ever meet.  She is barely a year old and was allowed to become pregnant.  She gave birth to 7 puppies, and her elderly owners could not properly care for her, so she and the pups were surrendered to rescue.  She was wasting away to nothing, taking care of her babies as best she could.  She weighed only 15 pounds and every bone was visible when she was surrendered to rescue, and she is now a healthy weight with a good diet and proper care.  She has weaned her pups, and now it’s time for Holly to be taken care of like she deserves.  Holly is a beautiful sable color and has tipped ears and a natural bob tail.  She loves to be outside, chasing squirrels and looking for moles, and just napping in the sunshine.  Holly also loves to play and tussle with the other dogs in her foster home.  Because she loves to be outside, we would prefer for her to have a fenced back yard.  Holly was not kept on heart worm preventative, and so she has a very light case of heart worms.  She will be treated as soon as possible, and will also be spayed before she goes to her new home.  Holly has been a perfect mother to her pups.  Now it’s time for Holly to find the loving home she deserves.  For photos of Holly and her pups, click here:

Cupcake

Sex: Female  •   Located in: Arkansas   •   Age: Young

*Cupcake is being fostered in Arkadelphia, Arkansas.*

cupcakeCupcake is a special girl who needs a special home.  She was rescued from a hoarding situation, and is very shy because she was not socialized.  She loves her foster mom and jumps up in her lap for petting, but is afraid of strange people who walk up to her.  She has been trained to use a pee pad, but is adapting very well to going outside with the other dogs in her foster home.  So far, no accidents, and she will go to the door if she needs to go out.  If she is unable to go outside, she will use the pad, but has rarely used it since her foster mom began letting her outside.  She is not leash trained yet, so a fenced back yard is necessary.  Other dogs in the home would be a plus, and would help her confidence.  Cupcake is very sweet and gives her foster mom lots of kisses – but she is afraid of people who tower over her.  If you have the patience and time to invest into Cupcake, she will be a loving companion, but she needs someone who understands her. She weighs about 15 pounds and is estimated to be between 1 and 2 years old.  She needs socialization and lots of patience and love.  She has short legs and a full tail.  She has started to play in her foster home, so she has come a long way.  If you have the time and love to invest in a worthy little girl, Cupcake needs you!  For photos of Cupcake in her foster home, click here:

Nico – ADOPTION PENDING!!

Sex: Male  •   Located in: North Carolina   •   Age: Young

*Nico – ADOPTION PENDING!! is being fostered in Winston-Salem, NC.*

nico1Meet Nico!  Nico is a dapper little Rat Terrier who weighs 19 pounds.  He was surrendered at a kill shelter along with his brother Bentley.  Nico and Bentley share a strong bond, sticking together like glue!  They were rescued by a whole team of volunteers; including friends of the shelter that pulled them out to safety before their euthanization day, and volunteer pilots who flew them from SC to NC, all the way to their new foster home.  Since they have been in foster care they are learning to relax, open up, and play more independently.  Nico is more cautious when meeting new people and he gets along with the other dogs and older children in the home.  Nico is house trained and sleeps through the night.   His beautiful markings make him look like he is wearing a shiney black tuxedo.  He is one handsome guy!  Nico tested positive for heart worms, so he will not be ready for adoption until he finishes his treatment.  In the meantime, he is getting tons of love and he dreams of his new adoptive home and family.  It would be the sweetest dream possible if he could find his adoptive home with his brother Bentley.  For more photos of Bently in his foster home, click here:

Trixie – ADOPTED!!

Sex: Female  •   Located in: New York   •   Age: Young

*Trixie – ADOPTED!! is being fostered in Staten Island, New York.*

trixiectADOPTED!!  This long legged beauty is Trixie!  She is approximately 1 year old, 15 lbs, and has lots of energy.  She LOVES toys, playing and cuddling with her foster family.  She gets along with her fur foster brothers and sister.  Although, she does need to learn some manners when playing with them.  But, she is very submissive and will roll over to show her belly if she thinks they are mad at her.  She is not cat tested.  Based on her playful attitude, she would probably want to play, and therefore, chase them.  She likes to go for walks.  However, she is still working on her leash manners at this time.  She loves to run and would make someone a great running partner, or would do well at agility.  She is fast, jumps high, smart and willing to learn.  Trixie would do well in an active home, and a home with a fenced yard.  She needs room to stretch her beautiful long legs.  She would also do well with another young, playful dog.  She has not yet been around any children.  But, she is so friendly with all, she would probably love them.  Trixie is house trained and working on crate training.  For photos of this cute girl in her foster home, click here:
