Lots of adoptions, but many great dogs still need homes!

We have had quite a few adoptions of young dogs and puppies.  But, we have some awesome adult dogs that need a family to love.  Every dog in our rescue has a story. 

Crystal was found at a construction site almost a year ago.  She had numerous scrapes and scratches and a wound to her back leg.  Her knee cap was damaged and she needed surgery to remove bone fragments from the joint.  Today she is all healed and has no problems with her leg.  She is energetic, a bit of an alpha female, but just loves attention.  During her recovery she was in a foster home with children.  She is crate trained and will easily transition to housetraining again.  She has been mostly an outside dog only sleeping in a crate indoors at night.  She is a curious dog and will search a handbag to find all sorts of stuff!!  While she never chewed up my things, she will take every item out of a purse just to see what is there!

Willow is a young dog with great potential.  She is a playful dog and likes being in charge of everyone.  She is also an alpha female who plays well with submissive females and all male dogs.  Willow was found with four puppies about a year ago.  She may have been house trained at one point in her life because she will not mess up a kennel run.  Currently she is allowed to play in the yard most of the day and then sleep in a crate on the porch with the rest of her pack.  She would make a great inside/outside dog for someone who wants a dog to alert them to possible trespassers!

Our sweet Marie just hasn't had a family of her own in months!  She had 5 beautiful puppies and all but one of them have a family.  Now she needs a family.  She is housebroken and crate trained.  Sometimes she will fuss a little about being in the crate, but it doesn't take her long to settle down.  Most of the time, a soft bed and a treat is enough to make her a happy camper in the crate!  Marie gets along with all the dogs, but she doesn't like cats! 
How about a Walker Hound?  Our funny man, Zero, needs an aspiring young hunter to train him.  He would make a great companion dog who can and wants to hunt squirrels.  He is quite a character.  One of his favorite activities is to dump his water bucket and throw it in the air like a ball.  He has a very expressive face and quite a walker hound voice.  He is a tall walker hound, all white, with tan spots on his ears.  He needs someone who can give him a great place to run and be a hound!
