SNEAK PEEK: Rey is our fierce mom dog, well she was fierce but her pups are all adopted! Here is her bio... I came into rescue with three fat puppies that all have been adopted. I may look like a German shepherd but my foster mom thinks I have some Aussie Shep too (I am too little for a german shepherd). I am at most two years old and probably a bit younger. I was running loose with my 3 week old puppies and someone took me to the shelter. My foster mom has seen a lot of smart dogs but she thinks I might be the smartest she has seen. I can learn anything. Since I had to fend for myself people yelled at me a lot to go away so I can be stand offish when I first meet people. But once I know and trust them I will do anything for them. My foster mom is teaching me that people are good, but I don't know for sure yet. I am a dog that NEEDS a runner or a very active person. Altho my foster mom can't run she thinks I would LOVE to run as she has never tired me out. I like to lay on a dog bed or sit by my foster mom on the couch. I love my foster brother Crispy as he plays just like me. Really fast. I am good with other dogs, I live with kids but I can be nervous around new people. My foster mom thinks people yelled at me a lot. I am crated when my mom leaves as I go searching for food on the counter. I don't love my crate but I go into it when asked because I train easily. I am getting to be an expert on leash. I love the car but I do sometimes get car sick.I have not been tested with cats. I am a happy, healthy high energy girl. My perfect home would be a person who is patient with me, needs to run and hike like me, has another dog for me to learn from and play with. I play hard so they have to be ready for a bouncy happy girl. I am up to date on all of my vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. My adoption fee is $250.

Jacob is just a baby at only 4 months old and 23 lbs. He has spent his entire life in the shelter system He was found as a skinny pup with mange and the shelter got him healthy but there were not many adopters at the shelter. We have taken him into our rescue and find him to be adorable. We can tell he was worked with and loved at the shelter. He looks to have some German Shepherd in him but is far too small for just a German Shepherd. He is our adorable mystery mix dog. He is being house trained. He is very food motivated. Great with other dogs and cats. Sweet and loving, he adores people. He wants to be with his person and will sleep on your feet. He is in a crate when his foster mom leaves. He will play with the other dogs but his person is most important to him. His perfect home would be with a person committed to training. He has so much potential! He is easy to train using treats. He will benefit from exercise and patience. I am up to date on all of my vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. My adoption fee is $250.

Royce is a happy, healthy 5-year-old, approximately 17 pound Chihuahua/Cattledog mix (our best guess). Weâre not to sure if Royce was a backyard dog or an indoor dog, he seems to have adapted to the indoor lifestyle quickly, but heâs still working on how to give his cues that it's time for potty - a continued routine will help solidify this and he's made great strides. We do know he once lived with big dogs and seems to do well with dogs of all sizes. His foster mom gets a laugh out of antics because he kicks his back legs out like heâs got swim flippers on when he runs and he gets an excited, bouncy prance when it's time to eat. Royce does very well in a fenced backyard and comes when called but is still getting used to the leash routine. He rides great in the car and is a quiet, relaxed passenger. He enjoys following his foster mom around and cuddling, but equally enjoys checking out what the big dogs are doing and often curls up next to them instead. He also seems to be interested in chewing on bones. Royce isnât too sure about going in a crate yet on his own and does make some vocal protest at first but settles in well. Heâs very friendly with people but might be best with older/calmer children. Royce would love a home where he can be part of the family, with one or more dog siblings to play and cuddle with, and a fenced backyard to run in and explore. He is very snuggly and loving and likes to give gentle kisses. He also takes treats very gently but is still figuring out that âsitâ thing. Although Royce could use some continued brushing up on some basic commands, his foster mom says heâs very easy-going, friendly, and loving, and will complete almost any home! Because Royce does do some barking in his crate and needs time to sniff the right spot outside, we think weâd be better suited in a home with a securely fenced backyard. Royce is a true gem, he just needs a little bit of continued polishing to make him shine even brighter! . I am up to date on all of my vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped.

Lucy is a dog that we are so happy we could help and now we are looking for her forever person. We can tell you her past but it was heartbreaking so we would rather focus on what this tiny sweet potato is looking for in a home, a forever home. Lucy was incredibly shy. Her amazing foster mom has brought this traumatized dog out of her shell where she trusts humans again. We expect her to be shy in a new home until she gets the routine down. She did not have good experiences with children, so for her benefit we are not going to place her with kids. She needs a home with other dogs to hang out with. It doesn't matter the size as she currently hangs out with a big dog and a tiny one. She is doing great meeting new people but she will not do well in a home with high traffic. Quiet is this girls lifestyle. Although her foster home has no cats we were told she was fine with cats. She walks well on leash with her dog friends near by for support. Lucy is a low energy dog that doesn't need lots of exercise. When Lucy is in her crate she covers her self completely with a blanket which is absolutely adorable. Lucy is a Chihuahua mix, 4 yrs old and under 10 lbs. She is a healthy little one who is now a beautiful happy girl. We love Lucy! I am up to date on all of my vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. My adoption fee is $250. If you would like to meet me, please email for an application or visit our website mywayhomedogrescue.org to download one!

This is Paris, a young, 52 pound Shepard mix. She's enthusiastic and playful and very, very happy. After some playtime she is ready curl up on the couch but before that she will need activity, and lots of it. At least a couple of walks a day. Her ideal home is active every day. We've tried to tire her our...it hasn't happened yet. I think exercise invigorates her. Could be an agility dog; she's very intelligent and eager to please. She is friendly and trusting with strangers and is good with cats but still learning their social cues. Around the house Paris likes to be close to me. When I sit on the couch, she sits next to me or when I do things around the house she will lay down and relax as long as she can see me. She's a best friend and companion in every way. I am up to date on all of my vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. My adoption fee is $250.

This is Sugar, an adult German shepherd who is just learning her way around the world.Â Raised alone in a backyard, she hasn't seen much outside so her new family should be willing to work with her.Â She will require a confident and experienced owner.Â Sugar can be fearful and unfortunately doesn't warn with a growl - she snaps.Â You gotta watch this so no kids - at least not yet.Â With some love and training, you can help her develop more confidence and teach her better coping skills for when she feels threatened.Â She is not aggressive, she's just scared.Â If you can work with this, you're gonna get a great dog. Â She seems to be a homebody dog and will benefit from a routine.Â She loves going for walks and sniffing around the yard.Â She is not the kind of dog who would like going on big adventures.Â Not now anyway, maybe later with more confidence. Â Around the home you will find Sugar a gentle, loving dog.Â She wants to be with you and will follow you from room to room often carrying her favorite toy.Â She loves her toys and won't destroy them.Â She is gentle enough that even our puppy can take the toys away.Â She mostly ignores other dogs but does play well with our puppy.Â They like to wrestle and to play tug. I am up to date on all of my vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. My adoption fee is $250.
