This sweet precious girl came to our rescue with her mother and sister. Life was not kind to them, as they were a neglect case in Oklahoma. Goldie is a 2 year old who LOVES her foster mom , but is a little wary of her foster siblings. She doesnt mind her foster cat siblings and has been around kids! She is the best snuggler and loves to give kisses. She will follow you around where ever you go! She is potty trained, but is still nervous on a leash. Goldy will need help to boost her confidence back up so she can be the best dog! We would like to see Goldy and her sister Pepper stay togethe, Do they sound like they could be a part of your family!?
My name is Gus, but I answer to Gussy, Wussy, Gussy the Bear, almost anything. I used to be afraid of people, but now I am learning that they aren't so scary. As long as you let me make the first move, I warm up and love you. I love going for walks with my foster dad and I am really good off leash. I get lots of off leash privileges when we walk. I love to chase geese but I haven't caught any yet. When my dad is at work, I get the whole house to myself and never abuse it or get into things Im not suppose to. I also stay off the furniture, not because I was told to, but because it's just how I roll. I never knew what a bed was until I came to my foster dads house, now I love sleeping on it. Beds are the best! Also, I am very patient when my foster dad is home and just hang out until it's my turn to go do something. I wasnt heavily socialized so I had some learning to do. The good news is Im really smart and I am getting better every day. I was maced by a delivery driver once and I still remember that. So when people offer me their hand to sniff, I get scared and bark. If you just ignore me, then I am content to hang out. Once I know you and trust you, then you can snuggle with me and touch me. When I first came downtown, lots of things scared me. I have learned to be confident and I keep growing every day. I get along with other dogs, big ones, small ones, doesn't matter to me. Just remember, I can get a little scared. Im curious about cats but probably should not be around them. Also, since I grew up without socialization, my foster dad does not let me around small children. I have a big heart and respond well to new boundaries my foster dad sets for me, but I still have work to do. If you are up for a big baby like me, I think we will get along great!
Judson is looking for his forever home! He is dog friendly and plays with other dogs every day. Judson is medium energy and has a good off switch. He is almost 6 years old and weighs in a healthy 82 pounds. Judson would be completely content just hanging outside with you as the outdoors are his favorite. Judson would thrive in a home that is breed savvy and knows the German Shepherd breed. He can be standoffish at first but once he warms up to you, he's a big love bug. Judson has a typical GSD prey drive, as such, small animals are not safe around him. He will require a no cat home. Judson is presently located in a foster home is Slidell, Louisiana.
Moe came into rescue from the Springfield Shelter Missouri as a stray with mange and malnurishment. He has been with his foster since June 2023. He is heartworm negative and up to date with his vetting, including neuter. Moe gets along great with dogs. Although Moe has not been tested with children. We have no reason to believe that he would be a problem with them. We are not sure about cats.
Pepper cam into our rescue with her sister and mom, life has not be kind to her. Pepper and her family were part of a neglect case in Oklahoma. Pepper LOVES to snuggle up with her foster mom but is still wary of her other foster siblings. Pepper is a very sweet girl, but she will need lots of love to get her confidence back up! Pepper does not mind cats and has been around kids. Pepper is approximately 2 years old and is potty trained. Because she is so shy and timid, she is still working on leash training. We would like Goldy and Pepper to stay together! Do they sound like they could be a part of your family?!
