Happily ever after ...Happily ever after...Happily ever after...Happily ever after...Happily
Timmy is a 7 yr old boy who is being fostered in Columbus. Timmy has been fine with the other dog and cat in the house. He would be better with kids over 12 yrs old as he tends to not enjoy being messed with. Timmy loves his person but needs someone that will put boundaries on him since he wants to resource guard his favorite person. He would do well in a single owner home. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and heartworm negative. His adoption donation is $250.
ROLLO is a beautiful 55 lb heeler-staffy mix, who is about a year old, and has been trained in our prison training program. He has learned all of his basic commands and then some! He loves learning and working with his handler, and while he plays well with some other dogs, he is slightly dog-selective. He may do best as an only dog and we don’t recommend he lives with small children.
Rollo listens well to a strong, assertive leader. He will need to be with someone capable of handling a strong dog and can be confident with him. Once he respects his person, he is a very loving and loyal pup! He loves toys and is content laying on a bed with a chew toy. He will make an awesome pet for the right family! He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative. His adoption fee is $250.
Bandit - *Currently on Medical Hold*
This little meatball is BANDIT and he is looking for his furever home! He is two years old, only 45 lbs, and a “pocket” bully mix of American Bulldog and boxer. He loves toys, bones and squeaky tennis balls. He loves to run around the yard with the zoomies. However, he would not do well in a home with young children.
Bandit is a happy energetic boy. He is potty trained, crate trained, knows sit, down, and come, and walks well with a harness. He’s also neutered, vaccinated, heartworm negative, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $300.
CLARK - Pending Adoption!
is about year old and is likely some sort of shepherd/hound mix. He is a fun-loving guy with a great personality, who loves other dogs and people! He's mastered the 5 basic commands, but is now working on doing them without treats and off-leash. He also loves to run and would love a big yard to romp around in, or an owner who loves to go on long walks or hikes!
He is still working on his tendency to jump up when he greets new people. As a result, he may not be good around toddlers or babies, but overall, he will be fine with kids. He currently weighs about 45 lbs but could stand to gain a few pounds.
Clark is vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, and heartworm negative. His adoption fee is $300.
Kelly is a 4-5 year old puggle/bulldog mix who is a puppy mill survivor. She is a graduate of the puppy prison program and knows how to sit, down, and come (she just chooses to do these tricks on her own time). She has been doing well with potty training, aside from her occasional “marking” episodes. She will bark, but only if she is playing, other than that she is rather quiet. She loves to nap, snuggle, play with toys, and play other dogs. She would do absolutely fine in a home with other dogs or with children. She is very goofy and will keep you laughing. Kelly has been spayed, vaccinated, heart worm tested and micro chipped. Her adoption donation is $300.
FOXY - Adoption Pending!
Foxy is a petite German Shepherd mix, only weighing about 30 lbs. She has been through our prison training program and did very well. She loved working with her handler and learned a lot of commands. She is great with other dogs and would be fine with school-age kids. We have not cat tested her. Despite her picture, she has normal legs and is not a Corgi mix!
Foxy has been vaccinated, spayed, microchipped and is heartworm negative. Her adoption fee is $300.
NOMI is a special needs, female, 1 year old German Shepherd Dog! Nomi had a rough beginning before coming into the care of Purebred Rescue Organization - she and her three siblings were brought into a local shelter as puppies by the dog warden after being found in inhumane conditions. She now weighs a healthy 55lbs!
Nomi does have some medical needs that will require lifelong care so that she remains comfortable and pain-free. She has been seeing a specialist at OSU regularly, to decide on the best plan of action for her left knee as there was unknown trauma when she came into the shelter. Her perfect home must have a strong relationship with their vet to monitor changes that might require intervention, as she may need surgery if there continues to be further damage to her knee/leg. She may also require advanced specialty care as she ages.
Nomi is currently on joint supplements daily and an NSAID for pain management as she does have a limp. She will need to stay at an ideal weight with quality food to avoid becoming overweight and further straining her knee and elbows.
She does have some anxiety that makes apartment living not ideal due to her crate anxiety and barking. Her crate anxiety is lessened while another dog is near; however if not crated, she is destructive and will chew on anything she can reach. Nomi is also reactive with other dogs, both over food and over high value things like raw bones, Kongs, etc, so she must be separate for other dogs when those are present.
Her adoptive home should have German Shepherd experience and will need to be committed to continue working on her training. She is an active, very intelligent puppy that will need to have an equally active home – ideally, she would have another dog in the home as she loves to play.
Her play style is very rough and tumble, and she currently lives with five other dogs. Nomi knows some basic commands, is very food-motivated, and loves benebones, sleeping under the bed, and swimming. She is a water dog through and through and would love to have an adopter that will let her swim and play in creeks.
Nomi does live with cats; however, she does chase them so would likely be best placed in a home without them. She has met a few children since being in her foster home, and their energy and activity level make her nervous, so she will not be placed in a home with small children.
While it may seem that Nomi requires a lot of care, the affection and joy that she will bring to the right adopter’s home will make it all worth it in the long run! More detailed information will be able to be provided about her medical needs when speaking with interested/approved adopters. She is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Her adoption fee is $300.
PEDRO is a very happy beagle, who is currently learning his manners in our prison training program. He's a goofy boy with a ton of energy, but he's learning to control it! He has the best floppy ears and LOVES attention from his human friends. He gets along really well with his canine friends in the dog yard too!
Pedro came to us heartworm positive in November and has completed treatment. He will be tested again May 1st (we will cover the cost of that test), and we fully expect a negative result. He's off all restrictions now and you'd never know he had ever been sick!
He is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $300.
Meet Romulus – Rom is an approximately 10 year old neutered male pug. He came from a sad situation, and he required some much needed medical care. He is now recovering well in a foster home after a few surgeries to make him more comfortable. Romulus is blind, appears to be hard of hearing, and has collapsing trachea. Due to these special needs, Romulus has exhibited some anxiety and would benefit from a home that is quieter in nature. Romulus startles easily due to his blindness, a home with older children or no children will likely be in Romulus’ best interest. More about Romulus special needs will be discussed with potential adopters!
He currently lives with other dogs, and cats. Due to his blindness, he has issues finding his food bowl and has needed assistance with eating. Romulus is not house broken and does not appear to be able to hold it for very long so he has begun wearing a belly band.
Romulus loves his people, and does best when he feels like he can constantly be touching someone or sleeping in their lap. Romulus enjoys being able to cuddle with other dogs, and sleep on dog beds. He is not very active, and is brachycephalic so monitoring during the weather will be a must.
He is neutered, heartworm negative, vaccinated, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $200.
He is a beautiful labrador retriever mix who is only 1 year old. Ace has aced our prison training program and has been described by his trainer as the calmest dog he has ever trained. He weighs in at 52 lbs and one of his favorite games is to fetch. He plays really well with other dogs in the yard and his recall to return to his trainer is very good. Ace learned all his commands and is ready for his new home. He is described as loving and friendly although loud noises and new places make him a little cautious. He is neutered, vaccined, heartworm tested and microchipped. Ace's adoption donation is $300.
Bowie is a beautiful white terrier mix, who weighs about 35 lbs and is approximately 1 year old. She just graduated our prison training program and has moved into a foster home so that she can meet prospective suitors. Bowie requires a home with a 6' privacy fence to keep her in the yard. Others with electric or shorter fences, or no fences will not be considered to adopt her.
She is super sweet and loves to just lounge around. However, when you get her playing, she won't stop! She loves having doggie friends and would enjoy occasional trips to daycare or the dog park to play with new friends! She is very well-trained on her basic obedience commands and learned quickly in our program. She is housebroken and crate trained as well. Bowie would do best in an active home with another dog to play with.
Bowie is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Her adoption fee is $300.
CLAIR - Adopted!
CLAIR is nearly perfect, according to her foster mom! She's a small white terrier mix of some sort, only weighing about 10 lbs. She is very gentle, well adjusted, and loves to be petted! She is housebroken and good with other dogs. She just had a puppy (who is not yet ready for adoption) and has been a great mom to him. Her ideal spot is lying on the back of the sofa and looking out the window!
CLAIR will be fully vetted in a couple weeks (we had to wait for her to finish weaning her puppy!), but we wanted to start promoting her so she can meet prospective adopters. She will be spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested and microchipped. Her adoption donation is $300.
FINKLE is a Heeler-Australian Shepherd mix, approximately 10 months old and weighing about 45 lbs. He is a very active pup who is smart as a whip! He’s already mastered his basic commands in our training program and is now working on the “fun stuff”. He will need an owner committed to reinforcing his training, as well as getting him a proper amount of exercise.
Since Finkle is still a puppy, and a working breed at that, he’s still mouthy and his handler is working on correcting that behavior. As a result, we wouldn’t recommend him with kids under 10. He has not been cat tested but he’s great with other dogs.
Finkle has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and is heartworm negative. His adoption fee is $300.
FLOYD is a Chihuahua-Pekingese mix, who is about 4 years old. He came to us from a rural shelter and spent a few weeks in our prison training program before being moved to a foster home. He is a very easy-going guy, but takes a little time to warm up to new doggie friends. He lives with a dog now and does fine; he just doesn't like new dogs right away. Otherwise, he's a super clingy snuggler, who just wants affection from his human! He walks great on a leash, is crate trained, and housebroken.
Floyd has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and is heartworm negative. His adoption fee is $300.
