Meet Skipper! He's 65 lbs. and a SUPER love. He does not possess any herding, play or prey drive. He seems to be more of a retriever in his personality.
He is 2 yrs old and great with any dog or any age/sex/size and is great with kids, listens very well and knows basic commands. He loves everyone he meets and is gentle and very well behaved in the house. He would LOVE to have a home with another dog if possible. He is good off leash when hiking (somewhere safe, of course). He is an all around amazing dog. We think he would be good with cats, though interested. We can very easily test him for an approved applicant. He is neutered, up to date on all vaccines, is negative for Heartworm and all tick diseases, and is up to date on all preventatives. =He is white so he takes a lot of baths and is so good for them! =He is cuddly and could easily be trained to be a therapy dog :).

Mondo is a fun loving guy with plenty of energy to spare! He loves to be with his "people" and with other dogs. He plays well by himself as long as his person is in sight. He is a typical adolescent male Australian Cattle Dog - Red Heeler. He needs structure and a job to do to feel complete in his environment and family. Please consider adopting Mondo!

Patty is an active and very smart Cattle Dog. She was pulled from a shelter in VA. She has the typical Cattle Dog personality and would love to put her talents to work, like agility training or another dog sport. She is also housebroken and loves going to the dog park. She is in a foster home and is great with other dogs, people, but has not been tested with cats yet. If interested, please contact Elaine at firstname.lastname@example.org

Jesse is a 5 year old spayed female Australian Cattle Dog, currently located an hour north of Dallas in Gainesville, Texas. Jesse is hind paralyzed but continent (she HAS control of her bladder and bowels). We are currently working on getting her a wheelchair. She is being brought UTD on vaccines and HW tested.
She is friendly, affectionate and playful. She is fine with being handled and groomed. When introduced to other dogs, she was not aggressive.
Jesse is currently in the care of the Good Samaritan that saved her life, literally. Jesse was this woman’s neighbor’s dog. When they got her, their dogs went after Jesse so they put her outside. One day, the Good Samaritan found Jessie unable to walk and went to the neighbor. The neighbor said she was aware of Jesse’s condition, that she just showed up like that in the morning and she probably got hit by a car. Here is where Jesse got lucky… the neighbor’s son was going to shoot Jessie and that is when the Good Samaritan told her neighbor she would take Jesse. Jesse was taken to the vet where x-rays were taken and no broken bones were found. The veterinarian prescribed steroids, suspecting a disk issue but couldn’t confirm that diagnosis with an MRI. Jesse is being boarded in the Good Samaritan’s boarding facility and is being well care for, kept clean and being given affection.
Jesse is currently located in Texas, but transport can be arranged should her loving, committed, proper home be found outside of the state as a good and right home is priority.
If you can help Jessie, please email email@example.com or Lynne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remington is a red and white cattle dog (probably a mix). He is an overgrown puppy at around 1 year old and is working on learning manners---like no jumping. He does sometimes find himself in ‘time out’, but he is a quick learner! He is house trained and very loving.
He originally came from a home where he was crated too much or kept outside, so he is really enjoying learning all the new things there are to explore in a home environment where he has room to explore
He is showing a little too much interest in the cats outside at his foster home, so he would probably do best in a cat-less home. Because of his energy level, he would do best in a home with kids that are a little bigger and less likely to get knocked over.
He LOVES to play with the other dogs in his foster home, most of whom are a little older and find him a little tiresome at times. He would do well in a home with another playful dog (or 2 or 3) to keep him entertained.
For more information, call (570) 884-5067 or email email@example.com. To confirm Remington is still available, visit his listing.
Apache 6 yo, neutered male needs a new family. As life goes his people had a baby. Unfortunately Apache is not getting the attention he requires. The owners have also become over cautious now that the babe is starting to move around more. He loves to swim and could fetch the ball all day.
Apache knows how to sit, sit pretty, crawl, shake. Chelsea knows sit and shake.
He is fully vetted. Neutered, Rabies Vac., Parvo/Distemper, Hw and Flea/Tick Preventative.
For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Buddy is a 2 year old neutered, black and white Border Collie/Heeler mix (or at least that was the shelters best guess). He was pulled from a shelter in SC where he was scheduled to be put down. Buddy is good with other dogs, but we haven't really had him around cats. He needs an owner that will continue to work with him. When Buddy meets new people, he can be nervous and fearful, but he has been working with a trainer and has gotten much better. For instance, if he is put in a down and stay position, and the new people ignore him and don't make eye contact with him, then he seems to calm down and is okay. Once Buddy sees that he can trust someone, he is just fine with them. Buddy will need an experienced owner with this breed.
If you can give Buddy a good home and continue with his training, please contact email@example.com.

I am a behaviorist who's been working with an ACD, Dingo, who is ready for his forever home.
About a year ago, I began to help and fostered a male, purebred, blue Merle Australian cattle dog who had been gunshot in his rear hip. In his wounded state, he must have tried to cross a road and was struck by a car. Today, he is a healthy, active, neutered two-year-old who barely limps. The only visible reminder of his past is one blind eye, now entirely milky blue.
When I acquired him, I charted his mental condition as deeply fearful and anxious. It was being displayed through extremely submissive behaviors. As he learned to be more assertive and self confident, he became aggressive toward other animals. Recently, he picked a fight with a bull dog I am working with, and wound up with a broken foot. But with humans, he is the perfect dog, loving, loyal, and obedient, with no signs of submissive behaviors.
Dingo is ready to be placed in a home with no other animals. He is fully crate-trained and housebroken, and is well on his way to communicating through basic obedience commands. My vet can verify vaccinations are up-to-date and will share his records. I will be more than willing to complete my training with him end his animal aggression, free of charge, by telephone or video. Does anyone want to continue the hard work of the Bainbridge Humane Society, Dr. Greg Winter of Havana, and myself in helping this beautiful dog fully recover, and become someone's one-and-only? Thank you very much for taking the time to read this.

Flash is very bonded to his 'sister' Fancy and need to be adopted together. They were dumped at a shelter along with Fancy's pups, by their owner.
"F&F" were separated and sent to different areas of the shelter where they could not see or hear one another. Shelter workers made no note that they had come in or grown up together. They had been in the shelter awhile and were 12 hours away from being killed to make room for more dogs when we reached out to help them. We had no idea at the time that they grew up together.
It is by absolute sheer luck and perhaps fate that they were both sent to the same rescue. When Fancy saw Flash again, they stuck together like glue and we would like to keep that bond intact. They beat tremendous odds to find one another again and its clear they are very important to one another.
Flash is a stunning dog to look at. He almost has a Basenji or Dingo type coat and look to him. he has one eye that is 1/3 blue! He is about a year or so old. he is outgoing, kind, generous with kisses and happy to given a new chance at life.
Fancy is a pretty girl whose Aussie shows thru in patches of merle on her otherwise black with tan coat. We suspect she may be mixed with Kelpie. She is shyer than her brother but super super sweet and very happy to be out of the shelter. She has positively blossomed since she's arrived and has become a confident, happy girl who's tail never stops. For all we know her and Flash could be litter mates. They are both about 30 pounds each. F&F are a ready made pair for the family looking who wants a multi dog home. They are well behaved, easy maintenance and will be forever grateful to the person who shows them that their lives are far from over. They ARE active however and do need a fenced in yard to run in, or someone who walks multiple times a day.
For more information and to apply to adopt Flash & Fancy, email RescueUnlimited@Hotmail.com.

Hi I’m Poncho! I wandered up to a home in rural NW Georgia in October of ‘12. It just so happens that the home I came up to is a home where the mom and dad do animal rescue, so I was in luck! They’ve kept me there and made sure I was ok, gotten me up to date on all my shots and found out that I am neutered and Heartworm negative and I am current on Heartworm preventative. I’ve also been microchipped. I weigh about 35-40 lbs (getting closer to that 40 b/c of all the treats mom gives when I am being a good boy!).
I love my humans and want to protect them. I love to play with my dad by wrestling and then turning over for a belly rub! I am happy to go with him anywhere. Mom’s the treat lady but I have warmed up to her too. The dog sitter came when they were out of town and played ball with me a lot and I liked him a lot too. I have to make sure strangers are ok and then I can like them. But I check ‘em out pretty good first! I LOVE to ride, I am a great rider in the car!
I went for a trial at a home that liked me a lot and wanted to adopt me and we learned some things about me while I was there: first, I am too interested in cats to live in the house with them. They just make me crazy!!! Also, I am just a little too rough with little dogs, I’d do better with medium to large dogs, like some of the ones I have enjoyed playing with at my foster home. I LOVE Great Danes, they’re my favorite, I have two friends of those kind of dogs! Also, I am a one person dog. I latch on to one person, usually really quickly, and just want to be with them all the time. I don’t mind what we do as long as we are together. I can curl up and watch TV with them, or sit with them while they read, or go for a walk, anything is fine as long as we’re together…I just want to be with my ONE person. I think I’d do best in a home with just one person so that I can be loyal and give all my love and attention to them. I will do whatever my person wants me to do! I can be quiet or I can be active, I’m not a crazy hyper dog at all. I am also housetrained. I know when and where to potty…OUTSIDE! I also do not chew on things I shouldn’t. I can behave inside and am NOT destructive at all…I promise I am a GOOD boy. But don’t crate me, I don’t like small enclosed spaces. I promise if you won’t crate me I won’t potty or do things I shouldn’t in the house…DEAL?
Please contact my foster mom and dad as since they do rescue they have TOO many dogs already, and can’t keep me, but love and want to find a good home for me. Poncho can get transport anywhere in the US and he is also in need of a foster home as well as adoptive home!
