*/*/* Foster Update */*/* Please allow me to introduce myself - my foster mom calls me Sugar Bear, and that name fits me to a T! I'm a handsome guy with a face full of character and a heart full of love. I have a surprisingly calm and affectionate personality, especially given the rough start I had in life. I prefer to accentuate the positive and not dwell on the past, but there are a few things you should know about me. Until my foster family took me in, I had never actually spent much time in a house before so I'm still perfecting my inside manners. I've learned how to sit and how to stay, and I'm now both house and crate trained. I'm learning how to lie down, and how to wait my turn before going through doors and up and down stairs, but there's still some work to be done there. I'm not completely comfortable riding in the car yet, but I'm getting used to it and as long as there's a window I can stick my head out of, I'm content! Cats intrigue me, but I'm rather exuberant in my attempts to play with them, so it's probably best that I go to a cat-free home. I get along well with other dogs, though, and have been known to snuggle my foster Pug brother on more than one occasion! Because of my prey drive, I'll either need a securely fenced yard or an invisible fence to keep me safe. And, believe me, once you get to know me, you'll never want me to leave! I'm a huge snuggle-bug, I'm unbelievably gentle when taking treats, I love to give kisses, and I'm easy on the eyes, too! Another new guy to Green Dogs Unleashed is this handsome Black Lab / Pitty mix. We are calling him 'Serious Black', and he is a total DOLL! Serious Black is laid back and happy to be loved and snuggled. He is amazing with kids and other dogs. He is so terrified of cats that he will leave the room when they approach. He rides well in the car and does great in a crate. Serious Black is a neutered 2 years old boy. Please let us know if he's just the one you have been looking for !!
*/*/* Courtesy Listing */*/* for Great Dane Rescue of The Commonwealth "this dog is NOT in the GDU foster program. Please use the contact info posted below the description to reach her rescue" Please welcome Lucy back to rescue. She was adopted a year ago and recently decided she did not want to live with the resident small dog. She is now 2 years old, spayed, up to date on vaccinations and looking for a home. Lucy is a very active girl and would make an ideal running/jogging/hiking/walking partner! She is crate trained, walks great on a leash, knows how to sit, lay, and shake paws. She loves the male dane in her foster home and would love a home with an active large male dog companion. She did live successfully with a cat in her previous home and enjoys the company of kids 10+ years old. Please contact Great Dane Rescue of The Commonwealth for more information. http://gdroc.com/ http://gdroc.com/
*/*/* This is a courtesy listing only. Green Dogs Unleashed has no additional information on this dog. Please contact Peaceful Passings Senior Animal Rescue for more information. */*/* www.peacefulpassings.org Please meet Shadow! Shadow is an amazing 8 years young! She is a typical lab who LOVES to play with her tennis ball, she loves the water, short walks, exploring in the woods, playing with her tennis ball, going for rides in the car, a day at the dog park, or just hanging out with her humans! Did I mention Shadow LOVES playing with her tennis ball? lol She is very affectionate and snuggly, she completely ignores cats, she knows basic commands, she asks for permission before jumping on the sofa, and is quick to learn new things. She will follow you around the house, snuggle up with you in bed, lay next to you on the sofa, or sit at your feet, as long as she is close to you, she is happy. Shadow was surrendered to Peaceful Passings Senior Animal Rescue because she was 'too big'. She has since lost 32 lbs and is being fed a strictly raw diet to help build and maintain muscle mass. She is showing some signs of her age - the gray on the muzzle, wear on her teeth (though the Vet says that some of that is from her great love of that tennis ball), and she's sometimes a little slow to get up after a long nap - but that doesn't stop her. She takes a daily Glucosamine/ Chondroitin mix and fish oil, which has helped a lot! Shadow takes a while to warm up to some other dogs with strong personalities, but when introduced properly, does just fine. As long as they don't show aggression to her, she is perfectly friendly. She would probably do best in a house with more submissive siblings, or where she is the only dog, but with some coaching has become fast friends with my 2 big girls. It would be awesome if her human was retired or worked from home, so she can be near them. She would NOT do well left alone all day, everyday, even if there are other animals to keep her company. This sweet lady will love and be loyal to her human until her last breath. All she needs is someone to love her back. Could that be YOU ?.
Bam Bam and his crew come to us from a small hoarding situation, so they are not used to the finer things in life, such as walking on a leash, lounging on the sofa, or riding in the car. They are all loving and friendly, playful and basically all about being a puppy !! Bam Bam is maybe 8 to 9 months old. He has been neutered and is UTD on shots! Our best guess is Labradoodle and maybe Terrier mix. If you would like more information about adopting Bam Bam, or his litter mates George, Trixie and Gracie, please visit our website and complete an adoption applicatoin. www.greendogsunleashed.org
George and his siblings come to us from a small hoarding situation. They are not used to the finer things in life, such as walking on a leash, lounging on the sofa, or riding in the car, so they will need a little extra encouragement to try new things. They are all loving and friendly, playful and basically all about being a puppy !! George is maybe 8 to 9 months old. Our best guess is Labradoodle / Terrier mix. He has been neutered and is UTD on shots!

Henry and his brother Chevy are having a ball in their new foster home, but would like nothing better than to find a furever home to call their own. These guys are about 5 months old, and are all about fun ! Coming from a small hoarder situation, they haven't gotten used to the luxuries yet, so they will need to learn that leashes and car rides are great fun, and either or both, can lead to even more fun . . . walks, trips to the park, etc! You probably won't have to worry about them hogging the sofa for a while - they probably have never seen one. I'm sure they won't mind if you introduce them to one though :) For more information or to find out about how to adopt, please visit our website. www.greendogsunleashed.org
Chevy and his brother Henry are having a ball in their new foster home, but would like nothing better than to find a furever home to call their own.

Blazer is another one of the Henry/Chevy crew. She loves her foster family and is having so much fun there, but would like nothing better than to find a furever home to call her own. Blazer is about 5 months old, and is a typical, happy-go-lucky puppy. She is all about fun ! Coming from a small hoarder situation, she hasn't gotten used to life's luxuries yet, so she will need to learn how much fun it is to go for a walk or a run, a ride in the car, and just to cuddle up close to someone who loves her for who she is !!

Foster Mom Update: "Petey is a smart guy! We're working on sit and stay and come, and after only 3 days, he's grasping them pretty quickly. He's food motivated, which makes learning new things much quicker. He loves to cuddle. We have a new verb around here, which is "Petey'd." Here's an example of how we use it: "I can't really get up right now because I've been Petey'd." As soon as we sit on the couch, he jumps up and lays his head in our laps, and makes an adorable little moan of contentment. Laying in someone's lap is definitely his favorite way to nap. But when it's time to go to bed for the night, he gets onto his dog bed and settles down there until morning. I think that being from a home where there were lots of other dogs, Petey would prefer company rather than being an only dog. He's not a fan of being alone. He's learning house rules quickly, and doesn't chew on things he shouldn't or get in to stuff. And he lets us know when he needs to go outside. If he meets you once, you're his bestest friend ever, and the next time he sees you, you'll be greeted with squeals of delight, excitement and him jumping up to give you a kiss (we're working on the jumping part). Petey is a sweetheart and is going to be a fantastic companion to whomever gives him a forever home." Petey is another one from the small hoarding situation. He will need some extra love and attention to help with manners and house rules, but he is going to make someone a wonderful family member!! He has not been exposed to the luxuries of car rides, long walks on a leash, hours of play time, or even just lounging around on the sofa, but we are sure it won't take him long to adapt to the good life!! If you would like ti adopt Petey, please complete an adoption application, found on our website - www.greendogsunleashed.org
Meet Gracie !! Gracie comes to us from a small hoarding scenario and is looking for her forever family! As with her siblings, Bam Bam, George, and Trixie, while she was loved VERY much by her family, she has definitely not had a life of luxury. She is shy with new people [possibly because she had never met anyone but her family before], she has never been on a leash, or ridden in a car, or jumped up on the bed to snuggle with her human, but her foster family will be working to help her get used to all the nuances she will be encountering in the next few weeks. We are sure that she will soon get the hang of being lavished with all the love and hugs a family can provide!! If you would like to adopt Gracie, please visit our website and complete an adoption application!
Oooooh ! This is sweet little Miss Poco !! She is so very shy and weary, but that will soon change, I'm very sure. I had the pleasure of introducing her to her new foster Mommy today and they hit it off right away. She had a bath and a couple of treats, got a new squeaky toy, and even showed off her new leash skills. Considering she has probably never even been inside a building before, she did amazing ! Poco is 2 to 3 years old, Spaniel / Lab mix. She will be spayed next week and wants so badly to have her very own person to love and make her feel safe! Could that person be you?
