Luna (formerly Dew Drop)

Luna (formerly Dew Drop) loves her new family and her new canine sister Pepper (an ADOPT alum!).  As you can see, sheโ€™s settled in pretty nicely!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Dew Drop

Breed: Pointer mix
Sex: Female
Age: Puppy (less than a year)
Size: Medium (25-45 lbs full grown. Estimate only.)
Good with kids: young enough to socialize
Good with cats: young enough to socialize
Housetrained: in progress
Recommended environment: As with all young puppies, we prefer that Dewie is in a home where she is not left alone for long periods of time. Because Dewie appeared to have been neglected, it is important that she gets continued socialization and positive reinforcement. She is affectionate and very sweet. Dewie is in a foster home with other dogs and does well.
*in a home foster*
Additional information: Estimated birthdate is mid April 2018. Because this puppy will still need her spay surgery and booster vaccines done by our local veterinarian, we are ONLY able to accept Columbus/immediate vicinity applicants. We appreciate your understanding.

Wiley

Wiley

Breed: Shepherd mix
Sex: Male neutered
Age: Young adult (1-3 years)
Size: Large (55-70 lbs)
Good with cats: unknown
Good with kids: unknown
Recommended environment: Wiley loves people and would do well in an environment where he has plenty of socialization. Because he’s a tall, larger dog we would prefer a home that has kids 5+. He does well on a leash and will need daily exercise and interaction to remain the happy guy that he is.
*Canine-Inmate Program*
Additional information: Wiley came with an extremely infected toe on his front paw and it was decided that amputating the toe was the best course of action. He has had no issues, and walks/runs without any problem.

Huey

ADOPT recently received an update on Huey from his new family! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I would like to thank you for putting Huey through your program. I couldnโ€™t be more happy! It has been a fun couple days already getting to know him! I am a very active person and will be taking him hiking and kayaking frequently.

Huey has been so perfect! He is a happy pup and is already at my side. He sleeps with me and comes out to do barn chores with me. He has already met my cat and dog, along with my parents 3 dogs, and my friends 2 dogs. He is definitely an at-my-side kind of dog.

My parents have 25 acres with woods and a small river where he is allowed to run and play. Iโ€™ve already taken him to a larger river and he liked the water there so I canโ€™t wait to take him kayaking – he already has a life vest.

Please tell his handler that I thank him so kindly and he did a wonderful job with this amazing dog!!!

Christie

ADOPT received an update on Christie from her new family.  She found a wonderful family that takes her for walks daily, has other furry siblings, and is loved dearly! ๐Ÿ™‚

Kona (formerly Freyja)

ADOPT heard from Kona’s (formerly Freyja) new family – we’re so happy to hear that she is fitting in great! ๐Ÿ™‚

Size: Medium (35-55 lbs)
Good with kids: yes

Housetrained: yes
Recommended environment: Feeny has lived with a family for the last 2.5 years after having been adopted from our Canine-Inmate program.

Delta

Delta

Breed: Australian Shepherd mix
Sex: Female
Age: Puppy (under 1 year)
Size: Large (50+ full grown)
Good with kids: young enough to socialize
Good with cats: young enough to socialize
Housetrained: in progress
Recommended environment: Delta is a stunning Aussie mix puppy who will need a household that can give her the time, training, and socialization that a young, intelligent pup needs. She will not be happy or have the proper exposure to important experiences if left alone for long periods. Regular exercise and positive interactions with new people and new surroundings will help her remain well rounded. Familiarity with the breed is helpful. Please remember that puppies are adorable but they are a full time commitment!!
*in a home foster*
Additional information: estimated birthdate is mid-April. Delta and her littermates were abandoned in a parking lot in southern Ohio. Because of her young age and need for booster vaccines as well as spay surgery (done by our veterinarians locally) we will ONLY be able to consider Columbus & immediate vicinity applicants.
