Roper is a timid and sweet 9 month old pure blooded (papers) blue heeler. He was rescued from a breeder with a heart murmur/condition that has been corrected surgically (patent ductus arteriosus). He has done well after recovery, able to run and play with no restrictions! He does well with other dogs. Is a bit timid/shy, but opens up and is very loving. He IS/WILL NOT be adopted out to be a "farm" dog. He needs to be a house dog. He loves to play fetch. He would make a wonderful walking companion as he is doing good on a leash. He is house trained, crate trained, UTD on vaccines, neutered and microchipped. He is AKC registered.
When he first came to us, he had no idea how to play and be a pup. He also would not walk on a leash. He was not house broke and was not crate trained. He has come a long way and is now ready for a forever home.
** He has had heart surgery and will need a follow up with a cardiologist in August 2013, but just a follow up to keep an eye on his repair.
Roper is located in Troatman, NC. If interested, please e-mail email@example.com or call (704) 431-7358.
Hi my name is Granite. I have been with my family for about six years now and due to a severe illness to my human, I’m in need of a new home. I can adjust to a new surrounding if someone will give me a chance. I love long walks and playing with toys and as you can see, you might have to hold the treat can away from me so I can get back into tip top shape.
At my home now, there are two other dogs and five cats. The cats are great and one of the two dogs I just adore. The other fellow is a pug male and he just is a little too active for me so I tend to back him off a bit if he comes close. It could be that I just don’t feel up to snuff with all this extra weight on me. Recently I went on a road trip and found out that I liked horses and walked quietly beside them without any problems. I also realize that I have been a bit spoiled and if I don’t get my way I can throw a fit and show my teeth. I need a fair and firm new parent that can give me the guidance that will make me a great Velcro kid.
To find out more about Granite, email Dan at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 410-615-6300.
Rocky is an Australian Cattle dog looking for a job and a home. He just can't wait to get up in the morning and go to work. He doesn't even care about a 401k. After many unstable changes in his home, things just weren't working out, so it was "hit the road" or "get shot". He is up to date on all his shots, neutered, housetrained, about 7 years old and still afraid of sudden movements and guns. Rocky loves to go in the car and rides very well. He is good on a leash and is currently in basic obedience classes, doing very well. He is somewhat fearful at first, but devotedly loyal when he gets to know you. “Rocky has great potential”, was the comment from the dog trainer he was evaluated by. He is looking for that special someone who will understand and work with him. At present, Rocky is being fostered with 4 other dogs. He has met cats and seems fine with them.
Rocky's foster mom's email is: email@example.com. Or you can phone her at 860-391-2289.
Jack is male heeler about 7 years old. He was surrender by his owners in high kill pound in KY because they had no time for him. Jack is very smart boy, active and very loving. He would like to find his forever home where he could feel loved again.Jack is very strong boy and like all heelers would be happy to please you and spend time with you. He's great in the car and loves to play; needs to have some basic training like sit and stay, but he is a fast learner so it will not take him long to do what you ask of him. This boy deserves second chance at life. Heelers are very loyal to their masters and make great family pets. If you can offer Jack foster or adoptive home please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Activity Level: Active Companion/ Sport Dog
Location: Bunker Hill, WV
Dale is a sweet white, red, and tan- Red heeler. About 7-8 months, small size. Spayed, HW negative, up to date on vaccines. Dale is the quieter of the two heelers, is still a little shy with new people, but loves to play with other dogs. Dale likes interacting with people she knows, loves getting treats, and is crate trained. She is smart, trainable, and would be a nice dog sport prospect, or great pet. She is active, but not hyper. She missed out on some early human socialization, so takes while to trust people, but actually likes being close and being petted once she feels comfortable.
Dale is currently being fostered north of Winchester, VA, in Bunker Hill, WV. For more info, please contact email@example.com To confirm her availability, see the rescue's website.
Age: 10 - 12 months
Activity Level: Active Companion/ Sport Dog
Location: Bunker Hill, WV
Roy is a handsome white, black and tan tri color Blue Heeler. About 10 months- 1 year old, and small-medium size. Neutered, HW negative, and up to date on vaccines. Roy is outgoing, and loves to play with other dogs. He is crate trained, and working on being housebroken. He's smart, and enjoys tugging with a toy, and sitting for treats. He is fairly high energy, but settles in his crate. I believe he would be easy to train for obedience, flyball, agility or other active sports. He would also make a great pet for an active home. He missed out on some early human socialization, so still does not particularly enjoy petting or touching; but comes when called, tolerates being held, and likes interacting and being close to his people.
Roy is currently being fostered north of Winchester, VA, in Bunker Hill, WV. For more info, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org To confirm his availability, see the rescue's website.
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!

Spirit is as unique as they come. Spirit was rescued from the pound out in Abingdon county when she was about a year old, and spent the next 4 Christmas Seasons waiting in a pen, for an adopter to recognize her potential. She learned to entertain herself by pacing and barking and became possessive of her space and things. Finally a long term volunteer took her home for some therapy and training, and Spirit has thrived, learned and adapted! Spirit's most recent accomplishment is to be well behaved enough that she was invited into the house with the seven house dogs, the eight cats, the birds, and the people.
Spirit has made a difficult transition in a highly distracting environment and is ready for a best friend who she can love, adore and obey! Spirit gets along with and plays well with both other dogs and cats and would love to have a animal friend too. Spirit does have lots of energy so she would need regular exercise, a large yard, a running companion, or to continue her agility training. Spirit loves the one on one involvement with this canine/people sport and would love to play with it some more!
Spirit is well on her way to being the perfect dog! She always tries her best to be good, is very sensitive to corrections and always smiles! If your looking for a companion that listens carefully, then check out Spirit! She certainly deserves a home and person of her own! If you have more questions about Spirit you can call her foster mom Shelley: at 804-347-0870, and of course go to www.barkva.org and get your adoption application done so you can meet her! Spirit is located near Ashland, VA.
Bandit is a very smart fully vetted two year old heeler. He knows many commands. He is very head strong. Bandit needs a home with a experience owner that can work through his stubbornness. He has the potential to be a phenomenal dog with the right owner... He is very eager to please and to do his job well. He is fully vetted and ready to go. He came from a home with children and he loves them. Older however would be better since he is constantly trying to herd the younger ones.
For more information about Bandit, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Roxanne is a very friendly, and happy dog. She is pretty laid back and undemanding.
We found a foster home for Roxanne. We were able to rescue her litter of pups which were placed in wonderful homes, our beloved snow puppies. They have all been adopted except Shirley and Lenny, which are also listed on our website, even Cyrano has a wonderful home now. It is time for Roxanne to find her special place.
Their story is poignant and compelling at the same time. Like so many rescues that are found here in the south.
We believe Roxanne is about two years old, weighs about 35 to 40lbs., she is spayed, up to date on shots, micro-chipped, heartworm negative.
Our greatest wish is that she can be adopted, to live the rest of her life with a loving family. Somewhere, where there is a big yard, but fenced in. Please never to be tied up again.
Do you or your family have a forever home for this deserving girl if possible? She would be a wonderful companion.
