cashew | mixed breed | feMALE | 2 yeaRS | 47 LBS

Special Needs

Hi, my name is Cashew! I'm a 2-year-old English Mastiff/Ca De Bou mix who lives for snuggles! I was given a new lease on life when my rescuer adopted me off the euthanasia list at the shelter they work at. You're probably asking yourself: why would an amazing dog like me be euthanized in the first place? Hip dysplasia. Now I bet you're thinking: I must be in insurmountable pain if such an extreme measure was going to be taken for a common, treatable condition? No-siree-bob! I romp around like a wild horse; totally pain-free (and without "performance enhancers" if y'know what I mean)! The shelter just didn't have the resources to remedy my condition. Unfortunately, as much as they want to, my rescuer doesn't either. They've already got an old, chronically ill dog and a young, infection-prone cat all while working long hours. So their plate is a bit full - emotionally and financially. And despite my appreciation for their efforts, I know they feel bad about not being able to provide the full life they say I deserve. But just in the short time I've been here, I'm really reaping the benefits! I was so terrified at the shelter that I wasn't able to be my sweet, tender-loving self. Being in a home has allowed me to feel safe enough to express that again! I enjoy having a big, grassy yard to roll around in (and do that romping I mentioned earlier). Don't even get me started on the long walks! They're so great, I refuse to go back inside at the end - unless my rescuer bribes me with tasty treats. I also like the other dog and cat my rescuer has...maybe a little TOO much. I've never had any friends before, so I don't understand all this "socially acceptable" jargon and why I can't shove my snoot in everyone's face. I'm only saying hello! I love people the same way - especially the little ones! My rescuer warns me that I'm really clumsy though, so I have to be careful not to accidentally step on or push them over. Personally, I think I'm as graceful as a gazelle. I may be a work-in-progress, but I absorb new tricks and rules like a sponge! I've already learned to do my "business" outside, some basic commands, and getting in and out of a car (still wrapping my head around the whole moving aspect). My manners are rough around the edges yet, but with patience and persistence, I'll get there! My rescuer is always telling me what a fantastic dog I am and how much potential I have - if welcomed into the right home. And how sorry they are for not being that. But I know they're working hard to find the perfect home for me! If that sounds like you, send in an application! My rescuer and I would love to meet you! I can't wait to be your best furriend!

STONEY | LAB mix | MALE | 7 yeaRS | 50 LBS &

JASPER | LAB mix | MALE | 8 yeaRS | 90 LBS

Stoney (7) and Jasper (8) are a bonded pair that have been together all their lives. They are both lab mixes that are high energy. They are used to having a large yard to run around in. Both dogs are house trained, but spend no time in crates. They are either free roamers or have a room to hang out in during long periods without their people (only because they will get into the cat food!). Both dogs love kids and have grown up with them as well. Jasper would do best with older kids because he can get a little over excited while playing and has been known to accidentally knock over smaller kids. Jasper was professionally trained with Suburban K9 and knows all his commands- sit, stay, heel, come. He walks well on a leash, although with some slight pulling. Stoney knows come, sit and stay, although he's a bit slower on the follow through. He tends to go at his own pace. They love to play fetch with tennis balls, but neither one enjoys dog beds- we've lost many to both. :) They live with indoor cats and get along with them in a mostly indifferent relationship. The cats are more interested in them, than they are in the cats. They are both sweet and cuddly and are not deserving of a re-homing. My mom is moving in with us and is terrified of dogs and if we could figure out any other way, we would. We hope someone gives them a 2nd chance together!

lilly bean | pit bull mix | feMALE | 3 yeaRS | 33 LBS

Best Fit : Only Dog

Lilly Bean is a small Pit Bull mix. She came from a kill shelter in Georgia. She is around 3 years old and definitely has a lot of energy. She loves attention and just wants to cuddle and be loved. She is great with kids of all ages and is crate and house trained. She does have bowed legs but she gets around just fine and loves to run around and go for walks. She does ok around other dogs but I would recommend she be an only dog unless you have the time to train/work with her around other dogs. She is honestly the sweetest dog and would be great for a family looking to get a dog. Please consider giving this adorable little lady another chance!

Addie | shepherd mix | feMALE | 2 yeaRS | 45 LBS

Requirements: Older Kids 

Our family got Addie in October 2022. She came from a rescue that had saved her from Texas with other German Shepherds. She had been with the foster for about 5 months, she was just over a year old. Addie did well with the 2 other dogs there. She does beautifully and has learned to "be a dog" so well from our older German Shepherd. We think that Addie is part German Shepherd/part Grey Hound. Addie LOVEs and needs to run! She jumps and leaps easily! We have a very long leash that she goes out on (30 feet) in the backyard for her to explore and yell at the rabbits, squirrels, deer etc. She tends to bark at people walking by with and without their dogs. She is a good guard dog but she is also impulsive at times. She has been through basic obedience classes and has grown and matured so much, particularly over the last year. She now comes when she is called- even when off leash at the big park/woods when monitored. She can sit, is crate trained (she loves her crate- her protected and individual space) and is potty trained. However, she has nipped others- particularly younger children. She does so well with adults and our teenage kids. Addie is on medication from the vet 2x a day (Trazadone and Gabapentin) to take the edge off, particularly for resting at nighttime so she doesn't respond and bark at noises. She loves to be put in blankets and squeezed too. We love Addie but cannot keep her because of her response to younger kids- ones she has been around several times. Addie needs a home where she has consistent older kids, adults, and does well with other dogs too. She shares food and loves to play and wrestle. She needs to run and have adventures but down time too. Although she is so loved and valued by us, we cannot have her potentially hurting a younger child out of impulse. Please fill out the form below to talk to the owners.

erebus | Pitty mix | MALE | 2 yeaRS | 63 LBS

Requirements: Only Pet | Older Kids 

Erebus is a loving dog. He loves snuggles and playing with his favorite toys. He is low energy and enjoys short walks to check all the local sewers. He wears his work jacket and enjoys inspecting all the nearby sewers to ensure they are clear and draining. He knows basic commands and is very food motivated. He is house trained and stays in a crate with no issues. He would do best with older kids due to his size and his habit of greeting people with hugs. He does not get along with other dogs and needs to be an only pet. He does have a strong prey drive, but does walk well on a leash. If you are looking for a new best friend, please meet me today!
