Bowie Needs a Home.jpg


Bowie is a 2 year old Shepherd/Akita mix in search of his forever home. He was surrendered to us by a family who loved him but could no longer give Bowie the time and exercise he needs.

He is extremely friendly and affectionate and is very smart. He wants to be around his foster mom wherever she goes and he loves cuddling up with her on the couch.

Bowie loves to run and will require a house with a fenced in yard as well as an active family that can take him for walks/hikes.

Bowie has lived with children and is wonderful with kids. He does well with other dogs but he is not good with cats.

Bowie needs a little bit of work when it comes to walking on a leash so the rescue will pay for his training for any family committed to working with him and to be able to dedicate some time to work with our trainer.

Prince is a one year old German Shepherd/mix in search of his forever family. He found his way into rescue when his former dad could no longer take care of him.

Since he has been in rescue we have gotten the pleasure to learn all about him and his wonderful/goofy personality

Prince is great with other dogs and loves to play with them and chase them around the yard. He shares his toys well and loves to spread them all over the house. He also loves his blankets and will drag them around the house with him and then uses them to snuggle. He loves to lay by his human all night and he aims so hard to please his foster family. He’s a very smart boy that learns very quickly and will undoubtedly make someone very happy!

Solomon is a 1.5 year old pure bred Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog who is an absolute sweetheart. The minute you meet this guys its impossible not to fall in love

He loves being around his person and will follow his foster mom everywhere she goes. He walks great on a leash, and once he is done with his long walks he just wants to pass out and cuddle up next to his foster mom. Solomon knows how to sit, lay down, shake, play dead and stay. This guy adores children and is great with cats and horses! Solomon prefers to be your one and only dog though.

Solomon was diagnosed with Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI) so he will require an enzyme supplement powder with his meals for the rest of his life but this is something that is both manageable and affordable.

Athena is a beautiful, very friendly 6-year- old German Shepherd who is looking for someone who can accept her and help her through her medical condition. Athena is thought to have a congenital abnormality (or injury induced abnormality) causing Cauda Equina Syndrome, where the spinal canal narrows and compresses the nerves causing pain and fecal incontinence.

Athena has undergone several trips to Cornell University Hospital for Animals where she has had comprehensive blood panels, ultrasounds, physical examinations and neurology consultations.

Upon several trips to Cornell University the following conclusions have been determined: All tests have proved that there are NO detected abnormalities in Athena’s liver, gallbladder, pancreas, stomach, kidneys and small/large intestines'.

Within the last year Athena has made a lot of progress with proper adjustments made to her prescribed food and medication dosage. She is currently taking Cisapride to improve GI motility and Gabapentin to help manage her pain. She is also on a prescribed food diet. Between the medication and prescription food diet Athena has had improved bowl movements in consistency and volume and her fecal incontinence has also shown signs of improvement.

I spoke to the Dr. at Cornell University who has been taking care of Athena for over a year and she believes that making proper adjustments in Athena’s therapy and increasing medication dosage will help to improve Athena’s condition. She needs a family that can understand that she has a neurological deficit and would be willing to spend a couple of hundred dollars a month on food and medicine as well as understand that Athena suffers from fecal incontinence.

Although Athena suffers with a medical condition it does not stop her from being extremely active and loving! Athena is a complete sweetheart and loves to play! She loves chasing her ball all around her foster dad's yard and she has a blasts bringing her foster dad all of her favorite toys.

Athena has a whole lot of love to give and wants nothing more than a family to accept her for who she is, snuggle her every day and play with her throughout the night.

Athena is not good with other dogs but she is great with cats.
