Meet the Pups
Here will be the pups available for foster and adoption. A picture and brief description will be included. We do not adopt out of state. We do foster to adopt before adoption allowed. This allows everyone to make sure it is a good fit. Please feel free to contact us for a meet and greet.
He is a champion sun-bather and a grandpa at heart.
Our blind, barrel-bellied guy is adorably calm, healthy, enjoys other dogs and would love nothing more than a loving home to live out his remaining days.
Even though his vison is impaired, Teddy doesn’t feel sorry for himself…His nose, KNOWS! He’s a great, easy going and super easy to care for, medium-size guy.
He will need a secure fenced in area to go outside when needed. Due to his sight very few stairs or steps are needed when going outside.
*Available for foster or adoption
Nado is an absolutely adorable boy. He was rescued from a bad situation where he was kenneled 24/7 for 6 or so months and before that this boy was a stray. He has a malformation in C1(Neck) which causes him some neurological issues with his gait. He high steps and struggles jumping on and off things. But can this boy run!!!! Nado is the best cuddler, if you like to cuddle, he is your boy. He gets to excited at this point with other dogs, but absolutely has had no reactions to the cats. He sniffs them, and basically says, nice to see you buddy!! He needs a home with a fenced in yard where he can run. He is not a real good candidate for walks if it is not on grass, this is due to the scuffing of his front paws.
To know her is to love her! She is confident in the rescue surroundings but is still a little weary of strangers, unfamiliar objects, and new environments. She is loving and loyal once you earn her trust.
She is very smart. She knows how to sit, down, wait, free, drop, release, leave it, and has completed a multi-week board and train.
*Dog-savvy household (Understands earning trust)
*Adapts to the energy put out but also needs a stimulating household -- throwing balls, playing with toys, fun stuff!
Spayed, Heartworm negative, wellness bloodwork, and all core vaccines are up-to-date.
Hope is a beautiful girl that is completely blind. She is approximately 5 to 6 years(guess). When she came to us, she was near death, both deaf and blind and was like a brand-new baby puppy. She has really worked hard to get where she is today, which is amazing. Her hearing was due to log term nutritional issues, with love, good food and care, she now hears. She is potty trained but may struggle at first in a new environment. She can be shy and will avoid any conflict. This baby needs someone who wants to help her grow, who has patience and a lot of love to give her. Her home needs to be clutter free, very little steps, and preferably quiet. A fenced in yard, but not a deal breaker for the right family. She is so easy to fall in love with.
His eyes will have you falling in love. If you’re looking for the love of a lifetime and the world’s best wide receiver of snuggles, your search ends here, with Timmy. If you have the love, time, and attention to share with him, he will be your best little buddy.
Timmy REALLY enjoys the company of others. Surviving Distemper, as a puppy, he doesn’t enjoy being alone. He needs a human or two, or a family with a doggie playmate that he can call his own and really bond with. He would truly thrive having a furry-playful buddy and humans that are home way more than not unless he can go with. He is a well-mannered, happy-go-lucky Rockstar in public. He just goes with the flow.
Timmy LOVES kids, cats, dogs, and all people. He is a sweetie and goofball. He enjoys walks, playtime, going bye-bye, snuggling on the couch or in bed with his favorite humans or furry buddies.
He has plenty of positives…He’s a comical, affectionate, social butterfly who thrives when his favorite people, doggies or kitties are nearby. He is just the right size, not too big and not too small. He truly is the best little companion. Having another furry isn't required if you can smother him with your full attention and love.
Maple is adorable. She has personality and deserves the world.
Maple is a medical rescue. She has a rare type of Myotonia Congenita. The disease affects the muscles causing continuous contraction of muscle fibers. Her muscles have a delayed response causing her to restrict/struggle to move until things start firing correctly. This also leads to slight bunny hopping/stiff leg movements and oversized muscles. She is on lifelong medication and takes it like a champ!
This great girl is still a pup, at around a year old. She loves to be snuggled. She’s so smart and learns very quickly. She is calm and is fantastic in public. She is the perfect size…medium, not too big, not too small. Maple is a German Shepherd/ Cattle Dog mix. She is great with dogs, cats, and kids. She loves to play and go on adventures.
This sweet, happy-go-lucky little pup is around 12 wks old and thought to be a Dane/Mastiff mix. Levi wound up at Indianapolis Animal Care Services after he was found as a stray with leg malformations and a belly full of worms.
He has visited the vet for a complete workup, evaluation, puppy vaccs, and is rid of worms.
The spunky little guy gets around just fine and isn't in pain. He just kind of walks like a little monkey right now.
If you would be a great Foster and can occasionally get him to vet appts at the Franklin Animal Clinic in Franklin, IN., please complete a foster application.
Meet Sun/Sunny Boy
Findings from his complete neurologic evaluation/exam/testing show that he has a misalignment of his L4 vertebrae caused by an injury or abnormality. This condition impacts his hind leg function, causing loss of muscle tone and weakness, in turn, he may be using his front legs to overcompensate for his back limbs. It is not believed that he has an infection of any type, so that is a plus.
Right now, the plan is to continue physical therapy, along with hydrotherapy at the rescue to rehabilitate the ligaments, tendons, and muscles in his back legs, while hopefully improving his strength, ability to walk better and counteract the compensation of his front legs.
It’s wait-and-see at this point. Time will tell if he can get better. Let’s hope he keeps improving!
