Meet Rocko! He is a one year old Blue Heeler looking for a new home. Rocko is a very sweet guy who gets along great with dogs and kids. He has been an outside dog so he is not housebroken but is very smart and we're sure would catch on quick to house training. He loves to spend time with people and his dog friends. Unless otherwise indicated, an adoption fee of $150 applies. All of our dogs are up to date on vaccines, heart worm preventives, and flea/tick medication, and will be spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Portions of your adoption fee also help care for the sick and injured animals that we take in. Thank you for supporting us and considering a rescue dog!
To apply, contact email@example.com. To confirm Rocko's availability see his Petfinder listing.
Sketch is a wonderful 3 year old Red Heeler currently in Charleston, WV. She was rescued from a high kill shelter in WV and is now looking for her forever home. She is housebroken, great with people, very sweet and loves a belly rub. Sketch does great in the car and loves to go for a ride, and is true velcro dog.
She would be a great farm dog if somebody could work with her on how to interact with other animals correctly. She has high herding instinct but but needs proper training. She is too pushy with other animals to the point it is taken as aggression, so would need an experienced owner to work with her or she would make an excellent only-dog. She has just a wonderful personality and would make somebody a great companion. Sketch is fully vetted, spayed, and ready to go to an approved home.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Fido is about 3 years old and is GREAT with kids and loves to play. For an ACD his is medium energy. Typical of the breed, he is a real velcro dog and wants to be wherever you are. He loves to go on car rides and long walks.
Fido is tall and lean; maybe 45 to 50 lbs. He does well with cats and has been good with the livestock he has been around. A dominant male, Fido was attacked by a dominant male at his previous owners home, which is why the lady that rescued him had to give him up. Due to the fight he is still very unsure of male dogs and is very quick to react negatively if they get up close and personal. He is doing much better, though, in the few months he has been with us and maybe in time will adjust to being with males. At the time, however, we think Fido should only go to a home with a submissive female or no other dogs.
Fido is fully vetted, neutered and ready to go to an approved home. He is being privately fostered in Charleston, WV. If anybody is interested in knowing more about Fido, please email me at email@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
I'm Noreen Boynton, Quincy, Florida, and you can reach me at 850-875-2353.
Talli is an 7 yr old Australian Cattle Dog/ Australian Shepherd mix. She was dealt a bum deal in life in that she has demodectic mange. She does receive occasional dips to alleviate it & keeps most of her hair, but does develop patches of loss. She’s been in rescue most of her life as a result. She is sweet and loving and just wants to be with her person, but does not care for new situations. A home without children or cats is a must. She does well with other dogs, but likes to be the dominant female.
For more information and to apply to adopt Talli, email RescueUnlimited@Hotmail.com.
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.
Timber is a 5 year old male Blue Heeler that arrived at the CNY Veterinary Services in Clay, NY as a stray, together with another dog, a BC mix that was his housemate. Timber is not showing well in his kennel, but once outside the kennel area he loves to play and loves getting attention and petting. He knows roll over, and is good with other dogs.
Timber is a high energy dog with herding instinct and will nip at ankles when he gets excited, so he cannot be placed with small children. He has recently been neutered and has all vaccines, flea treatment and heartworm test. If interested, please call the vet office at (315) 699-0375. The office is located at 5252 State Route 31. Please refer to Timber’s kennel number (35-13) when inquiring.
Meet Luke! Luke is a 1 year old, cattle dog mix. He came from a shelter and is looking for his forever home. Luke's mom was a red heeler, just like him....but we have no idea who/what Luke's father was. Luke is a bigger boy at around 40#. He has been raised w/other dogs and cats and is good with them. He is fully house and crate trained. Luke is a lower medium energy guy. He likes to go for walks and play at the park. Luke is a little shy when he meets new people. Due to this, we feel he'd do best in an adult home. Luke is a smart boy and loves learning new things, however, he is still a cattle dog and will push boundaries now and then. He'd do best w/someone who is experienced w/the breed and who can keep teaching him new things. Luke is a very loyal dog and once he knows who his people are, his bond is very strong. Luke is looking for a great forever home who can exercise him, teach him things, and love him!
For more information on Luke, please visit bcrmn.org or email email@example.com.
Please note, BCRMN does not ship dogs (approved applicants are required to come to Minnesota to pick up dogs and finalize the adoptions).
Meet Trace! Trace is a 1 year old, cattle dog mix. He came from a shelter and is looking for his forever home. Trace's mom was a red heeler, and while he is white, he does have some red ticking. Trace is a bigger boy at around 45#. He has been raised w/other dogs and cats and is good w/both of them (dog savvy cats are best). Trace is house and crate trained. He's been through obedience classes and beginning agility classes. Trace LOVES to play frisbee. He can get some good air and he tracks the disc well. He is working on trading discs and that's going great. Trace likes to go swimming and boating too. He gets to do lots of fun things w/his foster home! Trace is a wonderful companion for the right person(s). He can be a little shy in new situations, but once he bonds to his person, he bonds for life. Trace would do best in an adult home, as he can be a bit herdy w/kids. He'd be a great dog for an active person/couple. He would do best in a home w/previous cattle dog experience. While Trace enjoys agility and disc, he is not a high drive performance prospect. He likes games, but is very much a medium energy, hobby level dog.
For more information on Trace, please visit bcrmn.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

HANDSOME, SWEET, LOVABLE BOY! Cattle Dog Mix - Only 2 Years Old, A Real "Talker" & Always Happy :)
Dusty is one of the sweetest dogs you will ever meet. He loves everyone - dogs, people, kids and thinks he is a lap dog :) He would make a wonderful addition to any family.
Dusty rides nicely in a car, walks well on a leash and knows some basic commands. He loves to play and will bring you a "present" the minute he sees you. He is a good retriever until he tires of that game :)
Ideally we would like a fenced-in yard for Dusty since he is full of energy but his favorite thing is being with his human and doggie friends so leash walks would be OK too.
Dusty is healthy, HW negative, housebroken and crate trained (although he prefers the couch). He is neutered and has all his shots. Dusty is in Rockland County, NY.
For more info on Dusty email email@example.com.
I am Winston. I am a Blue Heeler Adult Male. I am a very loving dog with people and enjoy being petted and sleeping indoors by the fireplace. I am highly intelligent, keenly aware and eager to please. I have unpredictable outbursts of aggression towards smaller dogs or other small animals, however I am not human aggressive and I have shown no aggression towards larger dogs. Because of this, I would do best as an only pet or in a home w/ one larger dog.
The adoption fee for dogs is $100 and that includes:
• veterinarian examination
• current vaccines
• current flea, intestinal parasite, and heartworm prevention
• a microchip for identification if ever lost or stolen
• current heartworm test
For more information on this pet, please visit swval.org. Or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

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 email@example.com
This GORGEOUS fella is Oscar, Australian Cattle Dog, around 1 yr old and weighs 62 lbs. Oscar is one big love bug and gets along great with other dogs. He is very friendly, crate-trained, knows how to sit, and would love a home with a fenced in yard and a canine sibling to run and play. He is good with kids of all ages.

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 email@example.com 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!

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 email@example.com.

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.
