Theodore (formerly Thor)

ADOPT received an update on Theodore (formerly Thor) from his new mom! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!! 🙂

Just wanted to send an update on Theodore (formerly Thor). We call him Theo or Teddy Bear (or his full name, Theodore Samson, when he’s not listening!). He is fitting right in with our family. He and Lily are best friends – they play together all the time at home and enjoy hanging out. He loves to go on walks and say hi to other dogs at the park, but it’s hard to take pictures there because my hands are full with 2 leashes! He’s getting better with his separation anxiety, and has become a favorite at doggie daycare when he & Lily go once a week! This week the staff commented to me how playful he was compared to the last time he was there. He’s really coming into his personality, and we’re so glad to have him in our home. Thank you to everyone at ADOPT for helping to get him here!!

Freya

Freya

Breed: Unknown mixed
Sex: Female
Age: Puppy (up to a year)
Size: Large (50-80 full grown)
Good with kids: young enough to socialize
Good with cats: young enough to socialize
Housetrained: in progress
Recommended environment: Freya is still very young so she will need to be in a home that has adequate time to commit to proper training and socialization. She is still being exposed to crate training and housetraining and will need a consistent schedule in order to be successful and balanced. If you cannot devote the time to manage a young pup then please consider one of our more mature dogs!
*in a foster home*
Additional information: Estimated birthdate is early-mid April 2018. We can only accept COLUMBUS and immediate vicinity applications due to Freya’s age. She needs boosters and her spay surgery which will be done with our local veterinarian.

Recommended environment: Owen is a typical puppy. He is outgoing, friendly, and will do well in a variety of different environments. Please keep in mind that puppies are hard work and require ongoing socialization, obedience, and training.

Bee

Bee

Breed: Norwegian Elkhound mix
Sex: Female spayed
Age: Young adult (1-3 yrs)
Size: Medium (25-50 lbs)
Good with kids: 8+
Good with cats: unknown
Housetrained: yes
Recommended environment: Bee will thrive in a household where she has some companionship. Elkhounds love their people and develop very close bonds. She will alert if there is an unfamiliar person but is quickly quieted if you let her know the person is welcome. She enjoys her outdoor time, is not energetic in the house, but does like to play outside or go for walks. She is independent and very food motivated which makes learning new things easy. Bee can get nervous if something comes too quickly at her face (a hand, an object) which is why we prefer 8yr+ kids in the home. She is very affectionate, intelligent and has a true “Elkie” personality.
*Canine-Inmate Program*
Additional information: Bee will do fine in a home with a submissive male but not a dominant (high octane/in-your-face) dog. May have seasonal allergies (sneezes but no skin or food issues.)

Haley

Haley

Breed: Hound mix
Sex: Female spayed
Age: Young adult (1-3 years)
Size: Medium (25-50 lbs)
Good with kids: unknown
Good with cats: unknown
Housetrained: yes
Recommended environment: Haley is relatively new to the program so we are still learning what would be best for her. She is smaller than she looks in pictures, only 25 lbs, and a bit timid when she encounters a new situation. She is affectionate and warms up quickly. A household that tends to be more quiet than hectic would probably be the best fit!
*Canine-inmate program*
