Rescue Me ID: 16-08-14-00076Daffodil (female)

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Daffodil was born about June 10, 2012 and weighs about 35 lbs. This young lady is major sweetness and she came to us with an adorable litter of puppies that are now looking for a home of their own. She has not been noisy at all. Of course she may gain confidence and want to remind you that she is a Basset (mix). She has been wonderful with all of us and with the other dogs. We are so glad her little family was able to make the journey to the north. No information comes from the south as the dogs are not given much time to find homes. Taking a lot of information is not worth the time of the shelter staff - sad, but true.

Beagle Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Liana was born about May 7, 2016 and will top out about 30 lbs.. She is cute as a button and just as sweet as any pup here. We truly get no information from the southern shelters as they don't ask questions when humans surrender their pets as it feels they are embarrassed because the reason is so often financial. Sadly, we will be learning as we go and so will you. She's been wonderful with all of us, very social and happy, and great with the other dogs.

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-14-00074Mandy (female)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    CPS said the kids or the dogs! Mandy was born about December 25, 2015 and will probably top out a little over 20 lbs. She is a pretty little thing that is always ready to cuddle. She has grown up with kids, cats and other dogs, and does well in a car. She is a bit cautious when she doesn't know you so we are thinking no little grabby kids would be best even though they were in the home she came from and she was ok. She adores running and playing with the other dogs and a two dog home would probably be best in her future. She's just a cutie and we are glad she is here. Child Protective Services said the dogs go or the kids. We went to ... (Read More)pick her and her sister up and we could not believe the children would be allowed to live there with or without the dogs - the dogs weren't the real problem. (Less)

Lhasa Apso Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    My Life Was Spent in a Puppy Mill! Ken was born about July 13, 2009 and weighs about 12 lbs. He has spent his life in a cage in a puppy mill and is so excited, and amazed, to walk on grass! He is having a blast here and loves the other dogs. A puppy mill dog often does better with another dog in his next life - a normal dog. The normal dog will teach the puppy mill dog how to act in the world. As far as puppy mill fear goes this guy is minor. When we try to pick him up he will run, but otherwise is very comfortable with us, he looks at us dances and wiggles. Due to this behavior he is not really appropriate for young children. We ... (Read More)want to mention that these small dogs often do better with a potty floor pad available and if you are interested in rescuing a mill dog we'd like to have you go to our website and read the 'Working with Mill Dog Notes'. www.joyfulrescues.org Ken has had his first dental and only has 4 teeth left. Why his last name? Well, he ADORES the Kuranda beds and hops from one to the other just for fun. Adopting a mill dog is a special kindness as it will take many months or, even, years before the dog truly shows love toward you. But, when that moment happens you see it in their eyes and it will take your breath away! (Less)

Miniature Pinscher Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Addison was born a bout July 1, 2011 and weighs about 15 lbs. He is cute as a button and just as sweet as any little dog here. Addison got his name because he was 'added' on the last minute since there was one empty crate - lucky boy! We truly get no information from the southern shelters as they don't ask questions when humans surrender their pets as it feels they are embarrassed because the reason is so often financial. Sadly, we will be learning as we go and so will you. He's been wonderful with all of us and the other dogs. We do want to mention that many of these tiny dogs struggle with house training throughout their lives and ... (Read More)may benefit from having potty floor pads handy. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-12-00063Spotty (male)

Cockapoo Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Whew! Long Flight! Spotty was born about January 17, 2015 and weighs about 25 lbs. He is a leggy fellow and he does shed, but we also feel he's one of those dogs that will need to be groomed/cut every couple of months. There are just too many dogs in Puerto Rico so when they have a few they feel will find homes easily in the U.S. they send them here. So, after LONG flight and an overnight stay in Philly, the lucky trio were delivered to Joyful Rescues on a Sunday evening! Spotty had a wonderful foster mom in PR that wrote a beautiful note for his new family. She said he was very shy at first, but came around nicely with paw and body ... (Read More)messages. He may be shy again when moved to a new home and it may benefit him having a doggie friend or his humans around much of the time. He loved his morning walks with the other dogs in the home and is, very much, a follower and not a leader. She also stated he is house trained and trying to read the writing it appears he made his 'pipi & caca' in the backyard. : ) This is all we know so far. Frances, the foster mom, left her e address and phone number and hopes to hear from you! (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sugar Plum was born about April 25, 2016 and may end up weighing in the 20-25 lb. range when full grown, but we are truly guessing and the only thing we have to go on is that the mom is our Sugar Mama and she weighs 10 lbs. We have no clue what Dad was but at least one pup truly appears to be part Doxie. This puppy is happy, social, and full of life. The southern shelter gets so many dogs so quickly and if they are not transported out or find home the dogs have limited time on the adoption floor before their end of life looms. For this reason the staff doesn't bother taking down much information from the persons surrendering pets. We ... (Read More)sure are glad we were there to take this puppy away from danger. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    These adorable puppies were born about March 18, 2016 and we 'feel' they will end up weighing in the 15-20# range. The veterinarian, in the south, felt they looked like pure Doxies and we have to agree. HOWEVER, please understand we are not making any promises as we have no clue how they got to the high kill pound or of their parentage. The southern shelter doesn't ask a lot of questions as they feel it embarrasses the humans surrendering their pets and they are just glad that the humans bring them in rather than dump them along the roadside. There is a lot of financial problems in this area of the south as the need for coal dwindles. ... (Read More)These puppies are adorable, friendly, happy, and ready to find a new home of their own!

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Buffy was born about November 3, 2015 and may top out in the 50 lb. range. As for breed guess - Wow! Look at those ears! The shelter said Airedale, OK..... but the ears lean us in the direction of Fox Terrier. Both are Terriers of the rough coat variety which she does have. Please note that Buffy does shed. She is sweet beyond words and just wonderful with the other medium to large dogs, but we feel cats are not a good idea. Buffy should be a good fit for most homes from what we've seen so far. No information comes from the south (where she came from) and so we are learning as we go as you will be too. We sure are glad she made it ... (Read More)to the safety of New York. (Less)

    I Win Sweetest Ever! Brody was born about May 28, 2009 and weighs about 15 lbs. He is the NICEST Min Pin ever to walk through our doors. He adores his humans and will follow you everywhere. He's fabulous with the other dogs and he's was with very young children and did great. He loves a nice lap to relax in and he loves going for car rides. He was adopted by a young man for his father and when the father passed away the son couldn't keep Brody as he rented an apartment that didn't allow pets. So, Brody got to come stay with us for awhile and we sure fell head over heals quickly - you will too! We do want to warn that these tiny dogs ...

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    his puppy was born about April 28, 2016 and will probably weigh in the 50 lb. range when full grown. However, if you want something particular this puppy may not be for you. We have pictured the Mom dog below, but there is no clue of what Dad was and these little cuties do look a little hound like. These babies were raised with small children outside a home in the south and were being handed out like candy at Halloween once they were 5-6 weeks old! We were lucky enough to end up with 4 by the time we got down there and we begged for the owners to give us Mom too, but they would not - they love her.....or maybe they just love looking at ... (Read More)her from the kitchen window. These pups are gentle and kind and love humans more than anything! Even more than their toys which they LOVE! Nadine is particularly sweet, gentle, loving and a touch shy. She has done wonderful with the foster mom's toddlers. (Less)

Beagle Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    And Along Came the Human Children... Annie was born about November 16, 2009 and weighs 25 lbs. She is a cute little Beagle and she has a sunny, loving, disposition. She is wonderful with the other dogs and grew up with a dog brother so we are seeking a home where she will have a new dog buddy. Sadly, it is unusual for us to be able to place two dogs together and, just like us humans, we are not always able to stay with our spouse throughout life whether due to death or divorce so it's ok for us to go out and find someone new. Annie does love to cuddle and did very well on the over 3 hour car ride here. She has always had a fenced yard ... (Read More)so that would be really nice in her next life too and she does have the Beagle wanderlust so a fence or a leash will be necessary in her future. She is house trained and used to having a doggie door so she adjusted very quickly here and we just love her - you will too! She is here because the second child came along and they couldn't handle two kids and two dogs. Annie was said to be good with the kids 'most of the time', but not sure what that means because the owners hired someone to bring them to us. So, probably older children would be best. One more thing, she did test postive for lyme back in 2010 and again upon coming here. There are absolutely no symptoms and no treatment needed unless symptoms do appear (lameness) and then a course of doxycycline would be required. (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Champ was born about October 3, 2013 and weighs about 85 lbs. He is such a pretty, big, boy, and somehow ended up on a playground not far away sleeping under the slide at night and being chased around the park by some mean children during the day. There was one nice boy that kept calling us, but by the time we got there the large, skinny, very dirty, sad, dog was chased away by the others. Finally dog control was able to obtain a humane trap and it didn't take long for this hungry boy to crawl inside. He was a little frightened upon arrival, but has warmed up nicely. He's been through a lot and may need a bit of warm up time meeting a ... (Read More)potential adopter and may need a little time to adjust to a new home. The one photo is of him in the park - SAD!!!! Champ did well on the cat test. Update: Champ was adopted and doing great, but then a year later he was returned as he was becoming protective of his home and would nip humans walking into the house. The owners were unable to seek training advise and have always had dogs that they could open the door and have humans walk right in and that is what they still wanted of their dog. I'm sure many of you there have had dogs that you would need to put in another room or in a crate to answer the door and know that once the guest is in and seated the dog can be let back out and is wonderful with the new comers. This just seems routine to me, but it was too difficult to them. Champ was terrified on return and tried to cling to his human, but he has once again adjusted nicely into our home and the pack. It was a very sad scene, but now we know we need to look for a new home and new humans who don't mind if their canine companion isn't perfect. Champ is house trained and never destroyed one thing in their home. He is good in the car, just wants to be with those he loves and he's good on leash. It's a good thing because he's a big boy and we wonder if there is a bit of Great Dane in there. We love this guy and someone out there is going to love him too!!! What a terrible sad life he's had so far. He respected the 4' fence and was fine with the cat. (Less)

    Chance was born about May 18, 2016 and may end up weighing in the 40'ish lb. range. We are TRULY guessing at breed and ultimate weight so if you are looking for something specific this pup is not for you. We have no parentage information, but they are surely Basset mixes and then one sibling truly looks very Cockery. He is wonderfully friendly and sweet! Simply no information comes from the southern shelters as the dogs have little time to look for a new home after arrival. There are just so many dogs that space has to be made for new ones coming in. We are SO glad we were able to save this little cutie!

    Day was born about April 7, 2016 and will probably top out in the 50'ish pound range when full grown. He is just major cuteness and so very sweet and social. Sadly, the dogs in the south don't have long to live once they are left at the shelters and so the staff doesn't bother to gather more information so we will be learning as we go.

    These adorable puppies were born about April 16, 2016 and we 'feel' they may top out in the 30# range. Truly, please understand we are REALLY guessing at breed and ultimate weight as we have no clue what the parents were. So, if you are looking for something specific these puppies are not for you. A few of them have some Beagle characteristics while others look a bit more Shepherdy or Aussie'ish. We do know they are happy, fun, and funny pups that are looking for a home where they'll never end up homeless again.

We do know they are happy, fun, and funny pups that are looking for a home where they'll never end up homeless again.

Pee Wee is fine on leash and enjoys going for car rides, but it can cause some anxiety. He has no experience around children or cats, he's great with the other dogs. His favorite thing in the whole world is to have his tummy rubbed, sure makes the little nub wiggle! Pee Wee is protective of his humans so you'll need to cautious with new humans coming into your home and he has an infatuation with humans leaving which results in him trying to nip as you are going out the door. Such a bad ...

His owner had a terrible car accident and is no longer able to care for him and struggling to care for herself - how sad. (Less)

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    And Along Came the Human Children... Jake was born about November 16, 2009 and weighs 40 lbs. He is wonderful with the other dog he came in with, which was his sister, but struggled with all the others around the food dishes. He did adjust to the fact he had to share within a couple of days. It would be wonderful for him to have another lady friend going forward. Sadly, it is unusual for us to be able to place two dogs together and, just like us humans, we are not always able to stay with our spouse throughout life whether due to death or divorce so it's ok for us to go out and find someone new. He has always had a fenced yard so that ... (Read More)would be really nice in his next life too and he does have the Beagle wanderlust so a fence or a leash will be necessary in his future. He is house trained and used to having a doggie door so he adjusted very quickly here. He is here because the second child came along and they couldn't handle two kids and two dogs and Jake wasn't that appreciative of the kids. Jake definitely will need some warm up time to potential adopters. One more thing, he did test postive for lyme back in 2010 and again upon coming here. There are absolutely no symptoms and no treatment needed unless symptoms do appear (lameness) and then a course of doxycycline would be required. (Less)

    'm a Velcro Dog! Jenny was born about January 10, 2015 and may top out in the 35 lb. range. She is a tall, lanky, girl and a gorgeous mix of brown and black. Jenny had a bit of trouble leaving her family and their 3 year old child who Jenny seldom let out of her site, she was excellent with the child. Jenny has settled in and decided she really does love all us new humans, but we need to caution that she may need some warm up time at first. She is excellent with other dogs, good in the car and good on leash. It is a good idea to keep Jenny on leash or in a secure fenced as she used to escape her small, city, fenced in back yard and she ... (Read More)would also escape a crate so one of those heavier made plastic crates will be best for her although we've not seen much behavior needing a crate. In addition she has not escaped the yard here that has 5' livestock wire around the back and 6' chain link in the front. She also enjoys lounging in the wire crate on my desk a long timer isn't curled up inside. She does love to be near us, we feel another dog would be a benefit and a human around much of the time. She is a major cuddler so if you want your dog to stay on the floor this girl is not for you. (Less)

This little cutie was wandering a very remote road not far from here and was picked up by a young lady that worked at a dog boarding facility - how lucky for her. They phoned here, but we had to direct them to proper dog control and then no one came to claim little Taylor so she ended up here. I'm sure the young lady will be very happy to see that she is on our site and looking for a new home with all her major cuteness! Sadly, she was probably dumped!!!! If only they'd have called us it would have saved Taylor so much trouble, we'd surely have taken her ... (Read More)in. Taylor is not very big, but she does have a Beagle bark so if you have a lot of fun things to look at out your windows and you live in town, she is probably not the girl for you.

She is sweet as anyone can be and is good with other dogs and cats alike. She ... (Read More)did well on her two hour car ride here and we are told if she is off leash she will hang around with you. She loves attention and affection and you will be the person she waits for at the other end of the Rainbow Bridge!

So, he was picked up stray and his owner was located by his rabies tag, but they had no interest in bailing him out from dog control so we did. This poor little old man needed a safe place to fall! OK, the age thing, well the owner told the town that he was 7, but the vet that boosted his rabies shot for us feels he is about 11 so his birthday will be up to you! He is really sweet and loves to snuggle in your lap. He is just wonderful with the other dogs here, but struggled when he went to another home, particularly with a Beagle ... (Read More)as there was some food aggression. He seldom says a peep which we just love, but maybe he can't hear well, we've not been able to determine that, but it is obvious that his eyes have some old age cloudiness so his eyesight isn't what it used to be. He doesn't care, he gets around just fine. He is good on leash and ok in a crate, but not sure why you would need one. We are so glad he is here with us and we know we are going to find him an excellent home for the rest of his life where someone will love him and never let him wander freely. Jack did well on our cat test, but the other home said he didn't like their cat - sometimes confusing. (Less)

    I Got Too Big! Crow was born July 27, 2015 and may top out right around 75 lbs. He is a beautiful, big, boy that was purchased by a truck driver, but he got too big for the truck so he had to come here, or so we were told. He is good on leash and loves car rides. He is great with the other dogs and is fine with cats and has been around children as young as 13 and all was well. Crow had some vet work done before arrival, they were taking good care of him, so upon calling the vet's office we were told that he had bitten the fiance a couple days ago bad enough for her to have stitches. Our intake form asks if a dog has ever bitten anyone ... (Read More)and 'no' was circled. Since he was still here we asked him and the answer was 'no'. We asked the vet if they were sure and they said yes, so we asked the owner again and the answer was still 'no, never bitten anyone'. So, alrighty then, no use beating a dead horse as the saying goes. Upon writing this Crow has been here a few days and we've not seen any aggression. He did try to jump and, maybe, tried some dominance tactics at first, but that just doesn't happen here. We are all very good at being the dominant beings and since the first evening he has been a complete pleasure. There are men and women coming and going all day and he's been absolutely fine. We don't know what circumstances lead to the alleged bite so we all need to keep it in mind and so we are seeking a home where the humans have experience dealing with dominant type breeds. He was completely friendly with us on intake. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-20-00080Bobby (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Good thing I'm cute and llittle! Bobby was born about April 2, 2013 and weighs about 8 lbs. He is sure a cute little thing that is short haired except he has this little bit of beard action going around his mouth. We are just going to get it out in the open here, he is one of 'those' Chihuahuas that take warm up time to love you and will probably never be nice to strangers rushing him. Also, like so many of these tiny dogs he will benefit from having potty floor pads handy for those just in case moments. The tiny dogs just can't hold it that long. Now for the good stuff! He is good on leash and great with other dogs and cats alike. ... (Read More)Bobby also loves to go for rides! He is here because someone without many resources to begin with lost their job and had to move where Bobby wasn't allowed. Bobby is doing well here, but would love his own humans and a home to call his very own - forever. Once he loves you he is MAJOR SNUGGLY! (Less)

Papillon    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Vaccinations Current, Blind 

    J.J. was born about March 18, 2007 and weighs about 10 lbs. He was dumped at a high kill pound because he was old and blind. Admittedly, they said he'd never seen a vet. Well, that surely has changed! Dr. Rasey did rabies and heart worm testing (negative). Animal Eye Care of Western New York saw J.J. and he has ripe (ready for the picking) cataracts in both eyes and if removed he will see perfectly normal again. Much thank you goes to Cheryl who is the mom of an adorable little girl that was released from a puppy mill and we named her Honey Blue. She is now Phoebe and we were told that Phoebe wanted to help another little dog so ... (Read More)Cheryl sponsored J. J.'s visit to Animal Eye Care of Western NY for a diagnosis and pre-surgery meds. Thank you Cheryl & Phoebe! Phoebe is the cutie in the last photo. Now we just need to come up with the $5,000.00 to give J. J. the gift of site again. (Less)

Chihuahua    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I Weigh a WHOLE Five Pounds! Kam was born March 22, 2005 and weighs 5 lbs. She is as cute as can be, but is a bit on the nippy side. She will need some work on house training because she came from a puppy mill where she's been popping out puppies for pet store shelves all her life. Also, Chihuahua's struggle with house training anyway and often require potty pads or maybe a litter box. She's a doll that deserves a wonderful new life if you have a little patience to send her way.

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Oh My, It's Chilly Up Here!!!! Rusty was born March 15, 2010 and will probably weigh about 40 lbs. This cute little guy made his way up from North Carolina with Thanksgiving visitors that live in this area, they wanted to save him from the high kill pound in that area. Rusty is a timid guy that has absolutely no aggression, but little kids would make him nervous and he would benefit from having another dog in the home to guide him and show him the world is not really so scary. He's good with cats and did great in the long ride here. He does need some leash work and is intimidated out in the world. He is going to be best in a rather ... (Read More)quiet home with a fenced yard. Once he is comfortable in his surroundings you will forget that he is timid.. He is a sweet, very soft to the touch, lover boy just longing for that forever home. (Less)

    I Wiggle A Lot! Alex was born about January 6, 2015 and weighs about 12 lbs. He is one HAPPY little boy that is going to liven up your home! He would truly love another fun dog to play with and should be good with children. We were told he was house trained, but we like to warn with these small dogs that they have tiny bladders and may benefit from having a potty floor pad handy if not let out a lot. He is good on leash. He is here because someone took him from someone without asking the landlord's permission.

Bingo is very loving to us humans, but probably will do best as an only dog. He is FUNNY and FUN and ready for a whole new life!

    I'm Learning to Love! Monica was born about September 27, 2011 and weighs about 45 lbs. This pretty little girl came to us from a high kill shelter with 3 rolly polly dumplings of puppies! Monica must have had just an awful life until she came here. She was highly frightened of us humans, but once she saw how much her babies loved us she stopped running from us and we were able to touch her and then pet her and scratch all those favorite spots. She decided we were turning out to be pretty cool humans! Once she is moved again and when she is unfamiliar places and around unfamiliar humans she may regress again and will need some warm up ...

Beagle Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Oh, my, that was a long trip! Ellie was born about November 25, 2009 and weighs about 17 lbs. She is an adorable, delicate looking, little tri-colored girl that is just wonderful with the other dogs here. She travels well in a car and good thing since her human brought her here from CT ! The phone rings and there is a woman rather upset because she can't keep her dog and she's very angry with all the shelters she's called because 'they were turning their backs on her dog'. I take a deep breath, as she is still talking, and ask where she was calling from and she said CT. I ask if she knew how far away she was calling and she said she'd ... (Read More)take her anywhere. I listened for awhile longer and then said 'fine, you can bring her here'. Of course not thinking she really would! Several days later she called to say she'd be here the next day and I was still surprised when she showed up! OK, so back to the Ellie: She's good in the car (good thing!) and she is good in the house. She is a quiet little girl, just hangs out on the top of the couch most of the day and in our laps in the evening. She does take some warm up time and a home where there are just one or two humans and not a ton of company would be best, she's just reserved with those she doesn't know and can be nippy if cornered or frightened. We are told she has some leash aggression, meaning she thinks she's a tough dog when out in the world and on leash. We've not seen this, but haven't had her on leash. So, all in all, she isn't a perfect dog, but she will be well loved again in the right home. Ellie was hit by a car when she was a year old and we have a copy of her records which couldn't be read due to the handwriting, but the vet office was nice enough to have the vet translate that the trauma Ellie experienced was an avulsion fracture of the femoral head and a right luxated hip. They popped the hip back in and due to her young age the fracture was able to heal on it's own. A few weeks later there were no signs of any discomfort and there will be no issues long term. She was lucky! Ellie is panicky in a crate and does need her owners home much of the time. (Less)

    Chewbacca Tanner was born about January 14, 2009 and weighs about 80 lbs. How could we leave her behind? Well, we couldn't once we saw photos of her out for show and tells in the community. What a ham she was acting cute and funny like a silly pup. This girl surely knows how pretty she is! Chewy does have some rear end weakness and will benefit from a diet and supplements such as glucosamine and condroiten (sp?), but she has become stronger and healthier with us and some good food and care. She's very good with the other dogs, but has too much interest in cats to live with any.

This gorgeous girl has been tossed away and will be so thankful for a new home where she will be cherished! She was left at a shelter when her babies were two days old, guess she became an inconvenience.

She was a very good Mom, surmounted the stress and kept taking care of her babies who grew to be strong and healthy and now she is looking for ...

    As for Patches, he weighs about 60 lbs. and was born about May 30, 2010 and what a really nice boy he is! He is wonderful with other dogs and did fine on the ride here. He is not noisy and just really medium energy, he just seems to be thankful he is here. When patches arrived at the TN shelter he had an open wound on the top of his lower, front, leg and they thought they'd have to amputate, but thankfully they found a foster home for him to have some time to see if it would heal on it's own. So, not so thankfully, this foster home allowed him to be picked up running around on his own again and he ended up back at the shelter. The ... (Read More)foster family never let them know he was missing and failed to return several messages - nice.... So, by this time he was healing nicely and now there is a scar, but he uses the leg just fine - lucky boy. This is all we know so far, we'll be learning as we go. (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Cole was born about January 27, 2013 and will probably weigh in the 80 lb. range when full grown. He is from a very remote southern area shelter. We were told that any dogs who've been there the longest without interest by adopters or other rescues after that weekend would likely be euthanized the following Tuesday. The dog pound has a 150 dog capacity with 200 in the shelter at that time. Well, how could we leave this cutie chunk heads behind? So, Brad the volunteer pilot, and our great transport drivers had extra room so we could add him. Cole enjoys water and does wonderful with his other same size foster dog, but he is a little too ... (Read More)rough for small children, small dogs and shouldn't live with a cat. She will need some warm up time as he is shy of humans until he is comfortable with them.

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Jenna was born about January 27, 2013 and weighs about 45 lbs. Jenna's color and pattern is beyond gorgeous. Though she is a young adult now, Jenna still has a lot of puppy spirit left and is very inquisitive about everything. She is very athletic and can play fetch all day so get your throwing arm ready. She has a very fun and playful (not hyper) personality. She needs an active family and lots of running room to keep her happy. She can jump a 4 foot fence so a 6 foot fence or invisible fence will be needed at her new home. She received some initial obedience training at Canine Academy in Clarence giving her a great head start and ... (Read More)we would love for her new home to continue to work with her. She is very eager to please, responsive & food motivated. She is crate trained, knows sit, wait, and let go and does a really good job of coming when called. Jenna has been living in a foster home with other dogs, but we've learned that interacting with her fellow canines can be a tricky area for her. Some days she behaves great with playing chase and give & take with toys. Other times, she exhibits bad manners such as 'pester barking' at a dog that has something she wants or plays too rough and pounces on others. She can be selective about who she likes (strange dogs) and can be resource protective. So, we think being the only dog is the home would be best unless you are willing to work on a very slow introduction with another pet to build and encourage pack bonding and be able to supervise playtime. She is quite wiggly and may knock a toddler down, so a home with older kids would be better. She does have strong prey drive which is great for fetching but not so much for cat or rodent pets. She is very affectionate and wonderful with people so it's easy to forgive her other vices. Patience and tolerance at her new home will be important. (Less)

Beagle Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Loretta Lynn was born about June 10, 2005 and weighs in the 40 lb. range. Eight is the new five for this country singer as she hitched a ride with one of our volunteers that was in Nashville for a festival and decided not to waste the trip without saving a life or two. We found a dog control officer that had a few dogs that were hours away from death and he just hated to because they were such friendly dogs. Loretta was saved by one quick phone call! She does pull on leash and should be better with a gentle leader or appropriate collar. She rode wonderfully all the way North. She is very affectionate and will adore you! Loretta ended up ... (Read More)at the pound because, well, she's a beagle and if you don't contain a Beagle with a fence or keep them on leash they will wander off. They don't mean to, they just can't help but follow their noses, it's what they were bred to do. So, we can't imagine how unloved she must have felt when the people in this world that professed to love her forever when she was that cute puppy told dog control to keep her, they couldn't be bothered. By the way, she ducks when we clip a leash to her collar. She is telling us that wherever she was, it wasn't a very nice place. In the one photo you will see the green building in the back, that is where they were headed. (Less)
