Toby

Toby

Breed: Shepherd mix
Sex: Male
Age: Puppy (less than 1 year)
Size: Medium (25-50 lbs) estimate when full grown
Good with kids: yes
Good with cats: unknown
Housetrained: in progress
Recommended environment: Toby is playful, smart, learns quickly and loves to be close to people. We believe he will be a medium sized dog full grown, but this is an estimation. Because Toby is young, it is important that he continues to have someone willing to continue socializing, preferably attend training classes, and provide daily exercise.
*temporary in home foster*
Additional info: Toby will be entering our Canine-Inmate program after his neuter surgery. Because Toby is young and needs routine follow up with our local veterinarian, we are only able to accept Columbus/immediate vicinity applications.

Lily

Lily

We’re not exactly sure of little Lily’s breed combo, but we know it’s adorable. Possibly a hint of Border Collie, or terrier, but it would certainly be fun to do a DNA test on this cutie! She’s new to the program and is enjoying having a warm bed and regular meals in her foster home. She came to us from a rural Kentucky kill shelter so she’s learning about new sights, sounds, and smells. As with all puppies, it is critical to continue with structured training, exercise, and socialization. We know how cute they are and how much fun they can be, but we like to remind people that they are also a big responsibility! If you’re ready for a new companion and a lifetime of adventure, please fill out an online application to meet Lily.
Estimated birthdate: Nov/Dec 2017
Weight: 30 lbs full grown (this is an ESTIMATE)
Good with kids: young enough to socialize
Good with cats: young enough to socialize
Housebroken: in training
**in home foster**

Sammy

Sammy

Breed: Chihuahua mix
Sex: Male neutered
Age: Puppy (under 1 year)
Size: Small (12-25 lbs) estimate when full grown
Good with kids: unknown
Good with cats: unknown
Housetrained: in progress
Recommended environment: Sammy is affectionate and loves to be held or spend time with his people. Because he is still a puppy, he will need ongoing socialization, training and routine vet care.

Veronica

Veronica

Veronica came back to our rescue after having been adopted for a brief time. The family’s resident senior dog wasn’t interested in having a new puppy playmate and the family thought it best to give her a chance to find a better fit. Ronni is currently in a foster home with 2 other dogs and all 3 get along beautifully. She is a young Boxer mix with typical puppy energy. She loves to play with toys, loves to play with other dogs, is good in her crate and lets you know when she has to go outside. She has a great disposition and seems to like everyone she meets! As with any new puppy or dog, ongoing socialization and training is highly recommended. If you’d like to meet Ronni, please fill out an online application.
Estimated birthdate: October 2017
Weight: possibly 55+ when full grown
Good with kids: yes
Good with cats: unknown
Housebroken: yes (sometimes pees a little when excited)
**in home foster**

Maisy

Maisy

Maisy’s pictures don’t do her justice! It was pretty chilly when she arrived so we didn’t want to keep her outside for glamour shots! She’s great with people and dogs but has not been cat tested. We’re not sure about her breed mix, but she has a lot of Corgi characteristics mixed possibly with a herding breed…but that’s just a guess. What we do know is that she’s a really great girl who will be a wonderful addition to a forever home. Maisy is part of our canine-inmate program where she’s learning basic commands and getting continued socialization. If you’d like to meet this sweet girl, please fill out an online application.
Estimated birthdate: June 2016
Weight: 30 lbs
Good with kids: unknown
Good with cats: unknown
Housebroken: yes
**part of canine-inmate program**
