Happily ever after ...Happily ever after...Happily ever after...Happily ever after...Happily
THELMA is a 3-5 year old Boston Terrier, who came to us from a puppy mill. She is still pretty skittish around new people but she's learning to trust them. Her housetraining is a work in progress, so she will need an owner committed to teaching her. She would benefit from another dog in the home, to help her learn how to be a dog!
Thelma is spayed, vaccinated, heartworm negative, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $300.
Shirley - Adopted!
Shirley is a 7 year old petite Italian Greyhound. She has come to our rescue due to some unfortunate circumstances. Despite the hardship she may have faced, Shirley is as sweet as she could be. She gets along with dogs, cats and children. She is very gentle and all she wants is to snuggle with her humans and spend time under some blankets.
She is still working on potty training. While her foster parents are at work, she spends her day in her crate without accidents. She will just need to work in letting her humans know when she needs to go.
Shirley will be a great addition to any family with pets or she will do just fine on her own.
She has a special fondness for cats and loves to bathe her feline foster sibling. She currently lives with kids and dogs, and does great with both of them.
SHIRLEY has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and is heartworm negative. Her adoption donation is $300.
Lovable little LINDY is a 6 ½ year old female terrier mix who loves to snuggle and be the center of attention. She is smart as a whip, listens exceptionally well and loves to please. She is dominant with the other female dog in the home and is a princess that demands all the cuddles and attention, so she will need to be the only dog or with a laid-back male dog that would help her relax when she gets anxious. She would do best in a quiet home with a family who will give her structure and continued socialization. Children make her nervous so a home without young children would be best. She has not been recently tested with cats. She enjoys going for walks and does well on a leash but is perfectly content just sunbathing in her fenced in yard.
LINDY does require liver medication and has some anxiety that most likely will not be an issue, when she finds a new home where she’ll be happy and relaxed. She is housebroken and will let you know when she needs to go potty but will have accidents if she becomes anxious while left alone (ie. a knock at the door, thunder), so she currently wears a diaper (and looks adorable in it!) when left alone.
LINDY is spayed, current on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Her adoption donation 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 donation is $300.
Frankie came to us from a puppy mill, and her background paired with her breed have made her one of our more difficult rehab cases. She has been with us for over three months and is still very skittish of new people, sounds, and places. She barely lets people touch her but once you have a hold of her, she likes to be held (until she doesn’t, like a typical Shiba 😆). We would like to move her into her forever home because we feel like she’s plateauing a bit with us and would like for her to start working on bonding with her owner.
Frankie will need a savvy dog owner, preferably one who has owned a Shiba in the past. She will need someone who is NOT looking for a lap dog, someone who doesn’t want to take their dog to the dog park, and someone who can be patient with her for months while she warms up to you. We are requiring a fence for her - she will run and she is tiny (17-18 lbs). And we will not let her go to a home with kids under 10 years old. She gets along fine with other dogs for the most part, but will tell them when she needs space.
Frankie is about 8 months old, has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and is heartworm negative. Her adoption fee is $350.
The Shiba Inu is a Japanese breed of hunting dog. A small-to-medium breed, it is the smallest of the six original and distinct spitz breeds of dog native to Japan. A small, agile dog that copes very well with mountainous terrain, the Shiba Inu was originally bred for hunting.
Chase a 2 year old, 33 lb Dachshund mix, is ready for a loving permanent home! He is playful but gentle and loves to cuddle. He is ok around older kids and other dogs but needs to be introduced slowly and let him become confident and comfortable. He is still a little anxious around moving cars and sudden movements so he needs someone patient and understanding. He likes attention so someone with a nice fenced in backyard that would play with him would be nice. He is potty trained. He doesn’t like to stay in the crate during the day but is ok with it when it’s time to go to bed. He is a really sweet boy and would make anyone very happy to have him! P.S. loves peanut butter!!!
Chase's adoption donation is $300. He has been neutered, vaccined, heartworm tested and microchipped.
TAFFY - Adoption Pending!
Miss Laffy Taffy is the most loving, little snuggler ever! She is cool as a cucumber and nothing bothers her. She takes everything in stride and goes with the flow! Goes potty when you take her out and sleeps in her crate at night; since it is left open at night, it is her choice. She is very quiet and lives to sit in your lap and observe. She is a 4 year old female Yorkie mix. Does well with dogs and even snippy cats. Those ears will make you smile when you look at her! She’s adorable and a breeze to live with. If she sounds like the perfect dog for you, don't wait as she may go fast.
She has been vaccinated, spayed, had a dental, microchipped and is heartworm negative. Her adoption donation is $300.
Paddy - Adopted!
Paddy is about 4 months old energetic 10 lb puppy! The vet suspects he’s a dachshund/schnauzer mix and will be around 30 lbs full grown. He gets along great with other dogs of all sizes/ages and adores children. He’s still working on potty training but has graduated to only occasionally having accidents by the back door which is major progress! He’s not a fan of the crate but does great when gated off into a small area when you leave him alone. Paddy is a very vocal little ball of sass but also the greatest cuddler and he can’t wait to find his forever home!
Paddy will be neutered and ready to go after his vet appointment May 13th.He be vaccinated, neutered, heart worm tested and micro chipped. His adoption donation is $350.
TOD - Adoption Pending!
TOD is a 6 month old, 22 lbs American Eskimo, who we rescued from a puppy mill, when they decided to dump him because he wasn’t selling. He was very unsure of people when he first came to us and now he’s very attached to his handler. He will likely need a patient owner, who has experience dealing with separation anxiety.
He did really well in our prison training program and knows his basic commands but is now in a foster home. He walks well on a leash and loves playing in the dog yard with his friends. We have not cat tested him yet and he is a little rambunctious for small children, so we would prefer he lives with older kids. We will require a fenced yard for him.
TOD is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative. His adoption donation is $350.
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 donation is $300.
REMY is a 7 year old neutered male who had a rough beginning in a dog hoarder home. He is now loving all the attention and love he is receiving. He is as sweet as can be. Remy is very playful with people and other dogs and would do well in a home with a playmate. His house breaking is a work in progress, so adopter would need to continue to teach him to go outside. We took Remy to the Eye Specialist because of cloudiness in one eye and it was confirmed he has dry eye common in buggy eyed dogs and will need to be on eye drops for life to prevent damage. As of now, there are no ulcers and it can be controlled with daily drops.
Remy has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and is heartworm negative. His adoption donation is $300.
Meet our little 3 lb senior chihuahua named Jojo. He loves to potty outside and has a tail that he wags constantly. He may have arthritis but can still run around the yard a bit and enjoys it. Jojo absolutely loves to be held and give kisses and be petted. He is definitely a lap dog. He gets along with other dogs and probably cats. Poor Jojo lost all his teeth but one. He is a picky eater and we think he may have been fed people food in his former home. He was loved but his owner just couldn't take care of him anymore. He seems to have some allergies and has received some medicine. Although he may be 14 years old, chihuahua's life span can be 20 years.
Jojo is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and heartworm negative. His adoption donation is $200.
SANSA - Adoption Pending!
SANSA is a beautiful 40 lb husky mix, who is about a year old and is a very active pup! She loves playing with other dogs and running in the yard.

SANSA is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Her adoption donation is $300.
Tyler is a sweet, little 5 lb neutered yorkie looking for a new home. He likes to potty outside and has used the doggie door in his foster home. He gets along with other dogs and we don't know about children or cats. Tyler is about 10 years old and was just left at a vet's office and we don't know why. But he's got plenty of years left since they can live to 16 years old. He is a lap dog and loves people. He is currently on thyroid medicine.
Tyler has been vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, and is heartworm negative. His adoption donation is $300.
🎶🎶 “Who’s that foxy lady?!” 🎶🎶
We cannot believe this beautiful lady is still available! FOXY is about a year old and is some sort of small shepherd mix. She only weighs about 30 lbs and won’t get much bigger.
FOXY is sweet as can be and loves playing with other dogs! She has been through our prison training program and knows quite a few commands, but she’ll need some practice on a regular basis to ensure she doesn’t forget it all. She would do well in an active home, with another dog or plenty of exercise from her humans.
She has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and is heartworm negative. Her adoption donation is $300.
