***** COURTESY POST **** PLEASE contact Heather at email@example.com, with any questions, or if you have an interest in adopting Jelly !! PLEASE put 'for JELLY' in the subject line of the email. GDU has no additional info on this sweet girl. Meet Jelly! You canât keep this pup down! Jelly was brought into foster after being hit by a car. She had a broken pelvis, broken tail, a severe laceration on her head, and bruising all over. Even with her extensive injuries she was happy to see everyone and, although she would cry out in pain, she did not try to bite. Jelly was seen by the surgeons at Virginia Veterinary Specialists for repair of her pelvis. The fracture was partially healed which means she had been hit by a car at least twice in her short life. This old injury has been repaired as best as possible but she will always have a bit of a hitch in her gait though this doesnât slow her down. She has been spayed, had her Rabies and DHLPP and Bordetella vaccines. She is heartworm negative. She has been dewormed and has had a recent negative fecal. Jelly is approximately 2 years old. She LOVES kids, going for walks, and playing with toys. Jelly does not hesitate to let other dogs know how she feels and because of this she would do best as an only dog or with dogs that will not respond when confronted. Jelly loves to spend time lying outside and would be happiest with a fenced yard or having someone sit out with her. She would do best in a home with someone who can take her out regularly to potty or to teach her how to use a dog door as she is not totally housebroken yet.
**** THIS is a COURTESY POST ONLY **** Green Dogs Unleashed has NO additional information about this dog - PLEASE contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Peaceful Passings Senior Animal Rescue (www.peacefulpassings.org) for more information. Please put Cinnamon in the subject line. Thank you Cinnamon loves most anyone who will show her some affection, and will quickly âleanâ in to show her appreciation. She craves attention, likes to run and play with other dogs, has met a cat or two, and a few children. She did well with all of the above, though the children clearly had been taught how to meet a strange dog for the first time, and the cat was pretty laid back and did not run from her. If a cat runs, it will get a VERY big, up close and personal, âWOOFâ. At 75-80 lbs, this girl is strong, but does pretty well on a leash. She would definitely benefit from someone who will spend some time with some basic training. You are never too old to learn! She LOVES to go for a ride and will definitely show her excitement if she thinks you are going to take her, or thinks you should! If you reach for her leash (or she thinks you are), she is ready to go! She is smart and knows to âsit at the tableâ before receiving her dinner. Unfortunately, her desire to be âright with her personâ is greater than her desire to learn âgo lay downâ. A quiet, more laid back environment would be more suitable for this sweet girl. She loves the outdoors, but so far, has shown that she does not want to be out there (or anywhere) without her person. In the evening, you might find her sprawled out on the sofa next to you, or at your feet, but either way, you can bet she will be near you. She is loving and loyal, and will bond very quickly to the one who is just right for her! She is highly food motivated and a treat for her would be to lick some yogurt from the spoon . . . ok, or to lick anything from a spoon, or your hand, or her plate! Cinnamon is good when left alone in the house, is potty-trained, has been fully-vetted and is on HW preventative. Please consider meeting this sweet and loving girl. She just wants a human to call her own. Again. . . This is a COURTESY POST only. We have NO additional information about this dog - PLEASE contact email@example.com for more information. Please put 'Cinnamon' in the reference field. Thank you!
Oh my goodness !! This girl is so sweet it makes one's teeth hurt! Little Dory was found in a shelter in Alabama. They had no knowledge of what to do with, or how to teach a deaf pup, so they got her pulled by a wonderful lady who drove her all the way to Green Dogs Unleashed! She is a little thin, but is working on that! She is also much smaller than the photos make her out to be, or a standard Pointer would be. What a gorgeous girl this one is. She is affectionate, loves to cuddle and is learning that people are actually pretty awesome. Having known only a life in an outdoor kennel where she lived alone for the first year to 18 months of her life, Dory is quickly picking up on what it's like to snuggle in a nice warm bed!! Dory is reportedly good with just about everything and everybody! She is in a foster home with 3 larger dogs and 2 cats, and is just having fun, fun, fun !! She has met one cat and showed a lot of interest, but she is interested in EVERYTHING! She showed no signs of aggression at all. And, she has met cats before and was great with them. Dory is learning how to play with others - she bows down, but then when they come running to play, she rolls onto her back. Dory definitely loves to run and play in the yard, then come in and collapse on a nice soft bed or sofa. She spends a good deal of time in the yard, and likes watching the leaves fall, bugs flying by, and shadows. Dory is a bit of a digger and will need a fenced yard. She isn't actually digging to get out, but to find what is just underneath that next layer of dirt. Ms Dory has a couple of quirks, but with time, will hopefully grow out of them.
'Hey Stella!' Whatcha doin' there girl? FOSTER UPDATE: Stella Luna is the perfect family dog! She's a high energy girl, so a fenced yard or a very active family would be best. She enjoys running laps around the yard each morning before breakfast, and gets along really well with other dogs. She loves playing tug-of-war and wrestling, and holds her own with my 80-lb boy (even though she only weighs about 50 lbs). I imagine she's be a good agility dog. She likes the great outdoors, and appreciates the freedom a dog-door into a fenced yard gives her. She is loyal and watches out for her family, but still loves attention from new people. She's a bit too curious about cats, so a home with either no cats or a dog-savvy cat would be best. Although she can't hear, she is working on learning basic hand commands.The best person for her is someone who's consistent and firm and can resist giving in to her adorable face and big ears when she's doing things she shouldn't. And because she can't hear, she sleeps like a champ and doesn't care when I open a cheese bag in the kitchen. She's completely house broken. Stella Luna is sure to be an outstanding addition to any family that's lucky enough to adopt her. This active girl came to us from Florida. We know nothing of her history, except that she ended up in a shelter, then a rescue for deaf babies, then landed here with us at GDU. She has gorgeous Corgi ears, so definitely a Corgi mix, though we have no idea what the mix is. She is so loving and playful, and is great with other dogs and people. We can't imagine her not liking anything or anyone, though we have not seen her interact with a cat, as of yet. Each morning before breakfast she puts most any runner to shame by doing 8 or 10 laps around the yard at full-speed! This girl would be a great running partner!! She is deaf though, so needs a little extra care when she is out and about, so that she doesn't get turned around and get lost. She apparently likes the frisbee! Stella is scheduled to be spayed this week, and then can head off to her new home. If you would like more information about this awesome girl, please complete an adoption application.
Caesar came to us from a rescue in Florida, and is searching for his forever home. He is your typical puppy, and while totally deaf, he is definitely full of energy and puppy kisses. He seems very smart and will likely learn hand-signals fairly quickly. He has the most beautiful blue eyes. He is great with other dogs, is obviously fine with babies and kids (see pics), shows interest in cats, but not much history yet. The cat that he did meet was very laid back and when Caesar wanted to play, the cat just walked away. This little guy will need lots of attention and play time, and regular outings. He is dealing with a little bit of separation anxiety, but now that he has settled in a little and feels safe, he is adapting nicely. When you consider that at the very young age of 5 or 6 months, he has already gone from his original family (who turned him into a shelter for being deaf), he was then saved by a 'deaf animal rescue', then stayed with a temporary transport foster, and 2 local foster homes, it makes sense that he is a little leery being left alone. At least for now, Caesar would prefer a home with a stay-at-home parent, or at least one who is not gone for long stretches of time. After all, he is just a puppy. He is working on crate training, and when taken outside regularly for potty breaks, he does great! He has been sleeping through about a 6-hour night before needing to go out. That will get longer as he gets older. He does chew, but is working on learning what is a toy, and what is not. We are not totally sure of the mix breed, but records show Catahoula mix. He is small - 20 lbs at this point (32 as of 11/18), but again, not knowing the exact mix, it's hard to tell exactly how big he will get. If you are looking for a sweet puppy who will shower you with love, this could just be your guy! For more information, or to meet Caesar, please complete an adoption application.
FOSTER UPDATE: Cherub is a wonderful little dog. Loves to play but won't let you touch her yet. She isn't snippy just backs away. She loves Me and touches me with her nose but I can't touch her on my terms . She sleeps with me and has from the beginning. She jumps on the bed, cuddles next to me and sleeps all night. She has come a long way, but has a long way to go. She loves all 4 of my furbabies. This little one comes to us after having a pretty rough life. Cherub was abused and is scared of pretty much everything. She would love to find a furever home that would love and pamper her! Patience is a MUST ! She is about 4 years old and is a Maltese / Yorkie (Morkie). Please complete an adoption application for more info on adopting this sweet little one.
Gravy comes to us from the Roanoke area. An owner surrender (though we cannot imagine why), he is just as sweet as they come. At 3 years old and 20 lbs, he's perfect for those wanting a lap warmer! We don't really know anything about his history, though he did come in somewhat matted and had to be shaved. He seems very sweet. He is still a little confused, or maybe even frightened, and grumbles a little when being picked up. Once he is settled though, he is fine. If you have children, they need to be schooled on 'dog boundaries' and how to handle a small dog. We will update when we have learned a little more about this little guy! If you are interested in adopting Gravy, please complete an application!
This is Keller. He will be joining us at Green Dogs Unleashed, and will be looking for a new home. This 8 month old deaf bully already weighs about 50 lbs, is very sweet and loving!! Keller is being fostered in Roanoke VA. He was pulled from the pound and has no training so he would need a loving person committed to setting him up for success. He is going to Doggy Daycare and doing great with the other dogs his own size.
Sweet little Gonzo has a heart as big as his ears! At only 4.5 months this pup packs a whole lot of snuggles in this 4lb body! He is dog and cat friendly, and even loves kids. If you are looking for a pint size puppy to call your very own, look no further! Gonzo is ready to meet you! Please visit the website for the adoption application. He is being fostered in Lake Monticello VA.
This is little Sophia, litter mate to our Pit boys, Blue and Petey. She has just joined the GDU team and is looking for her new home. She is about 9 weeks old now, and is just as sweet as molasses! This fawn girl has a blue muzzle! So precious! If you would be interested in adopting Sophia, please visit our website and complete an adoption application. www.greendogsunleashed.org
