Mo

Mo

Breed: Mixed unknown
Age: Puppy (less than 1 year)
Sex: Male
Size: Medium (25-45 lbs full grown, ESTIMATE)
Good with kids: young enough to socialize
Good with cats: yes
Housebroken: in progress
Recommended environment: Mo is still a “baby” and will need someone who is available to give him continued socialization, exercise and training. Foster mom says he is brave, curious, not fazed by other dogs or cats, and as an added bonus prances when he runs! He LOVES his toys and likes to hoard them. Because he is still a young puppy, we prefer he is not left alone for long periods of time in order to help him be balanced and happy.

Additional information: Estimated birthdate is early July 2018. Because Mo is still in need of his booster shots and his neuter surgery by our local veterinarian, we will be able to accept Columbus and immediate vicinity applications ONLY.

Lucky (formerly Pippin)

ADOPT recently got an update on Lucky (formerly Pippin) from his new family! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!! πŸ™‚

Pippin, now named Lucky, is doing great! He and our other pup, Penny – yes, like Lucky Penny haha – love playing together and could chase each other around the backyard for hours. Lucky is so funny, floppy and gives tons of kisses. He hasn’t met a person he doesn’t love. Besides cuddling in bed in the morning, eating is definitely his favorite part of the day – he spins in circles when it’s meal time! It’s so cute. He also has the most adorable snaggle tooth and makes the silliest snorting sounds. We would love to get his DNA tested and see what all he’s made of. We have been taking him to puppy classes and he’s learned a ton. He knows sit, spin, touch, down and wait (half the time – can’t blame him food is just too exciting).

I’ve attached some pictures for you! Sorry there’s a bunch, he is just very photogenic! πŸ˜‰

Lucky, and his sister Penny:

Amber

Amber

Breed: Collie mix
Sex: Female Spayed
Age: Young adult (1-3 years)
Size: Medium (30-50 lbs)
Good with kids: yes
Good with cats: was curious but not aggressive when tested
Housetrained: yes
Recommended environment: Amber is in a foster home where she is thriving! She loves playing with her canine foster brother, is a complete snuggle bug and loves affection. She was somewhat timid upon arrival but with consistency and positive experiences she’s become much more comfortable and relaxed. She rides well in the car, will whine when she needs to go out to potty, and is good on a leash. Because she genuinely loves people and attention, we would like Amber to be in a home where she has someone to bond with and isn’t left alone for lengthy periods every day. She is an “easy keeper” and a wonderful companion.

Maggie

Maggie

Breed: Shepherd mix
Sex: Female spayed
Age: Young adult (1-3 yrs)
Size: Medium (30-50 lbs)
Good with kids: unknown
Good with cats: unknown
Housebroken: yes
Recommended environment: Maggie is super smart and learns things very quickly. We are not sure of her breed mix but she looks like a β€œpocket” German Shepherd and is only about 40 lbs. She will need daily exercise and socialization in order to stay happy and healthy. She gets along with other dogs and loves to play. Maggie would do well in an active household where she would not be left crated for long periods of time.
*Part of the Canine-Inmate Program*
Additional information: Maggie had surgery on 10/19 to remove a piece of blanket that she had eaten. She has recovered beautifully and has no issues from her operation.

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, she’s settled in pretty nicely!! πŸ™‚

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.

Mitzi

Mitzi

Breed: Beagle mix
Sex: Female spayed
Age: Young adult (1-3 years)
Size: Medium (25-40 lbs)
Good with kids: tested with 6+ yrs and loved them
Good with cats: exposed and was interested but did not chase or bark at
Housebroken: yes
Recommended environment: Mitzi is very sweet and gives “hugs.” She loves people and is good with other dogs. She is playful but not hyper and would do well in a variety of households. She met kids older than 6 yrs and did wonderfully. Best educated guess is that she’s about 18 months old so she will still need daily exercise and socialization. Mitzi will be a really great companion to a single individual or family.
