This cute little guy is Andy. Heâs young, estimated to be seven months. We think he might be a miniature schnauzer, mix. Andy is super sweet and friendly. His tail wags nonstop. He enjoys playing with other dogs but also doesnât mind playing with toys by himself. He loves his share of naps too. If you talk to him he might show you his cute head tilt like heâs all ears listening. Andy is always appreciative of a belly rub. Heâll thank you with loads of affection. On a sunny day you might find Andy just hanging in the yard catching the sun or playing with a toy. Andy will be shy at first but donât let that fool you. Once you gain his trust you will be rewarded with a wonderful dog. Andy has quickly blossomed in his foster home. He loves other dogs no matter how big or small. Andy rides well in the car and doesnât mind being left alone with another dog friend. I am up to date on all of my vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. My adoption fee is $250.

Zappa is the most chill dog you have ever met. He is an 11 year old Shih Tzu mix and about 10 lbs.Â Zappa is blindÂ but that doesn't slow him down. He figures out how to get around the house. He needs to be taken outside to go potty and then will walk about the yard sniffing until he is ready to go back in. Zappa loves to sit on your lap while you're watching TV orÂ reading a book. He is also content to snooze away on his dog bed.Â Zappa recently had a dental andÂ a full physical. He is up to date on his shots and microchipped. Zappa is good with cats and would seem fine with older respectful kids. If you are looking for a sweet, chill dog, then Zappa is the dog for you.Â Zappa is up to date on all of his vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $250.

This big boy is Dante.Â He's about 90 pounds and he looks like an Anatolian Shepherd but don't expect this goofy boy to guard your herd - he's more likely to play with them.Â Young, maybe a bit over a year, he acts like the puppy he is.Â He was a neglected backyard dog before he was surrendered to the shelter.Â He was ignored and left untrained so his new family will be patient and committed to teaching him the ways of a family dog. Â And he really wants to be a part of the family.Â Dante loves people.Â He's never met a stranger and he loves everyone.Â He greets people with enthusiasm and makes everyone smile.Â Until he bounces his 90 pound body into you with so much love you land on your butt.Â So we're training on this. Â His favorite game is bouncing and he loves playing this game with other dogs, especially little dogs.Â He's very gentle with smaller dogs and after some play time he is content to lay around the house watching his family.Â He doesn't really play with people yet.Â His favorite game with me is ignoring me when I am calling to him.Â He's definitely an on-leash dog because this game isn't nearly as much fun outside the gate.Â Â He likes going on walks and walks really nicely on his leash after the initial excitement wears off.Â But he's really strong so he can be quite persuasive until then.Â If he sees something he wants to sniff or chase you may not have a choice.Â A belly-wrapped leash helps keep him under control.Â He doesn't like riding in cars and heâs reluctant to get in, sometimes flatly refusing.Â That's not uncommon but with a dog this big its not like you can just toss him in.Â However, he loves children more than he fears cars and kids inside the car get him bouncing happily into the car.Â I think with time and exposure the car will be less intimidating. Â Dante really is a nice dog and he deserved better than to be left alone in a filthy backyard.Â If you like big dogs and you appreciate the challenges of their size then Dante would be a devoted companion. Â Â Dante is up to date on all of his vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $250.

This is Ella, a rescue from an Asian meat farm. She's a Jindo, a Korean breed, and she shows true to the traits of that breed: loyalty, intelligence and independence. She weighs about 45-50 pounds and we think she's a little over a year old. Ella is very playful and likes activity. She is young and healthy so daily exercise is needed. As much as possible might help, at least initially in order to work out possible anxiety. Another playful dog in the home will certainly help with that. Ella is very good on a leash. Walks will be easy once she has bonded with her primary care person and as her shyness turns to loyalty. She is very tolerant, does not tug or pull and she likes to walk right beside her person. At least in the beginning, off-leash in a fenced yard should be supervised. She will stay nearby and check on her personâs proximity frequently. When she is off of the leash with other dog(s), it is very easy as she seeks the companionship, leadership and example of her canine buddies. Ella needs more confidence before she should be introduced to dog park time, either on or off of a leash. Although she was raised feral, Ella has quickly acclimated life in a home. She is working through some behaviors associated with her shyness, e.g. occasionally she hesitates through doorways, unsure of what ghosts may be on the other side. Sometimes she follows me around the home and settles down close or sprawls out in a corner on the floor. She is learning to enjoy the comforts of a dog bed but for now she prefers to sleep nearby on a carpeted floor. She shows no interest in getting on to furniture at all. In the evenings she is mellow and quiet. She remains keenly aware of activity and out-of-the-ordinary noises. She is astonishingly frugal with her bark by only doing so when a key is put in a door to enter, a car door closes in the driveway when returning home or an outsider to the home is on the porch. The doorbell does not elicit barking but knocking does. When a stranger enters the home, Ella does not bark, shows a bit of interest at a safe distance and then goes about her business or quietly lies down in the same room observing. But new dogs spark curiosity and excitement. Ella loves other dogs and has terrific dog skills. She will initiate play with other dogs and she greatly enjoys and needs their company. She shows potential for playing with people. She does like to chase a tennis ball, and fetches it, then carries it to her favorite spot in the yard and sits with it. She's okay with cats and is now learning that they sometimes don't want to play with her. And they have claws. Ouch. She plays a funny game with me at night. She likes to surround herself with stuffed animals. I will put them around the house and overnight, they magically find their way in a semi-pile around her spot in the bedroom. Then, in the mornings she likes to fling them about the room. The squeaky ones are her favorites. Her new home will have other dogs in the pack - this is essential. She trusts them and connects immediately. The pack will be her anchor in her new family as her strong pack mentality helps her to continue developing from a semi-feral dog into a family dog. Another playful dog that can burn off some of her youthful energy would be great. Also a well-mannered dog(s) that can lead and set examples will benefit Ella greatly and aid substantially in her further growth. She watches them and learns appropriate behaviors from them. Patience and kindness are essential too. Ella is smart and will push boundaries to see what is allowed, both from you and her dog-pack. She is always watching and learning - so good examples because, at all times, you will find that either you are training her or she is training you. Ella is extremely food motivated so that helps keep training fun. Ella would also enjoy a fenced yard. We have a relatively small yard and I can see how a larger one would be better for her. She likes to zoom around and chase a ball. Small children are probably a no. She will not do well with being chased or grabbed in the name of wanting to cuddle or to satisfy a curiosity. Ella is up date on all of her vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $250.

Tammy is a little-dog mix, maybe a year or two old.Â Tammy is gentle and affectionate and really such an easy going dog who is content to play or nap.Â Â Â She also loves sitting for pets and snuggling in your lap.Â She's playful with people and dogs and her favorite game is wrestling.Â She's learning to walk on leash and she will be an on leash dog. Â Tammy will do best with an experienced, patient person in a quiet home.Â It is also important that she has a secure yard.Â She loves kids but we would hesitate to adopt to a family with children because they leave doors open and she could dash out the door.Â She can be skittish and would be hard to catch her if she escaped.Â This skittishness is getting better as she is becoming more comfortable in our home but it remains a concern. Tammy is up to date on all of her vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $250.

Life with Gena is fun.Â This little girl loves to play and will entertain herself with play sessions.Â She's so small, about 12lbs., she can run around the house and get tuckered out.Â Although it's fun to watch her, she would love if you joined and one of her favorite games is chase.Â She gets so involved in her play sessions that she may not notice when I leave for the day (she stays in a crate when I am gone.)Â She really likes going on her walks and she is amazing on her leash.Â Gena will be an on leash dog - she has a high prey drive and will chase and kill small animals. Â Gena is a strikingly cute dog and attracts attention wherever she goes.Â She radiates joy and her exuberance make her the star of any gathering.Â Gena has never met a stranger and is instantly friends with crowds.Â Â She will do well in most homes - although I am most concerned with the possibility of her slipping through an open door or gate.Â She would take off after the first squirrel she smelled.Â Remember I said her favorite game is chase?Â It's not nearly as much fun outside the gate and quite a bit more dangerous. Gena is up to date on all of her vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. Her 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.

This handsome boy is Bishop, 3-4 years old and about 50 lbs, he looks and acts like a cattledog-lab mix. He's a happy dog who will certainly be one of the more playful and friendly dogs you will meet. Bishop would do best in a one person home. He is looking for someone who would enjoy spending active time with him outdoors and also hanging out on the couch. Ridiculously playful, Bishop will play just about any game you introduce. He loves to fetch ball and brings it back most of the time. We play tug with ropes or wrestle on the floor. He even chases lasers with our cats. When playtime is over Bishop is a willing snuggle partner. His go-to move is to burrow his head into your lap or neck. He wonât get up on our sofa or bed but he will put his front paws on the bed and snuggle, keeping his back paws on the ground. He will be a loyal hiking or running partner and is great on leash with just a steady pull - you can hold the leash with just a finger. Heâs pretty good off-leash and tends to stay close although although he sometimes gets distracted. Oh, and when playtime is over at the park sometimes he just stands there with the ball watching me call at him. Bishop is a terrific dog who will benefit from an experienced and confident owner and maybe a basic obedience class. We are working on manners and toy guarding; he is smart and eager to please and rarely needs more than a single reminder. Sometimes he likes to gnaw on hands and feet. It's part of the fun when we are playing but not not as much fun when I am trying to put on my shoes â so we're working on that too. Also, heâs a come-along dog; if you go outside he wants to go with you. He rides great in the car â no panting or whining, just settles in the back. If you are looking for a new best friend this is your guy! Bishop is neutered, chipped and fully vaccinated. If you are interested in talking with his foster family please fill an application out and they will give you a call.

Some thought he was gone forever, but Agent Cooper has returned. While being fostered at My Way Home he did well with other dogs when there was no competition for anything of value, so he was adopted into a multi-canine home. Unfortunately, it wasnât the right fit for him. Coop is a loner who loves to meet new people and have new experiences, but heâd prefer not to have any furry roommates. This sweet, laid-back, 55 pound tripod is ready to investigate all life has to offer with you. He travels well in a car, having done extensive road trips to the midwest and back, and is excellent on leash for walks about town. At two years old, Cooper is already house-trained, knows lots of commands, and is eager to learn more. He loves to be out and about, and would be happy to join you wherever you go--even to outdoor restaurants. He only asks that you order him a piece of cherry pie and a cup of coffee. He takes it black. My adoption fee is $250. If you would like to meet me, please visit our website http://www.mywayhomedogrescue.org/ to download an application!
