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
Reece is a female Boston Terrier mix weighing 13 lbs. She is 2-3 years old and spayed. She gets along with other dogs but we recommend her as an only dog or with medium to large dogs because of her prey drive. Reece is a lap dog and loves her person. She is very loving after she bonds with you but takes a minute and a treat for her to warm up. She has been spayed, vaccinated, is heartworm negative and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $200.
Ruby Rose (Rosie)
& Ellie Mae
Rosie and Ellie are a bonded pair of two sweet girls that came out of a hoarding home. They were just 2 of 19 dogs in the home. They love attention but will take some time to trust the new family. They are both runners so a fenced in yard will be needed. They love going on walks, exploring new areas, playing with each other and toys. They will cuddle together or with you and will likely steal your bed and covers. They do best with structure and will need someone to keep working with them. They are very treat motivated and will be the best girls they can be for a cookie.
Ellie is a nervous girl. She will run from you if she does not trust you. She takes her time to trust people but once she is ready for some love she will roll on her head, like a tumble tot. She can easily jump 5ft high from standing still so a high fence would be best.
Rosie, a Chinese crested hairless or mix, is also nervous and timid but all while being very curious. She does best by ignoring her but still keeping an eye on her until she allows some love. She may be little but she does her best to guard her bonded person. This is improving with structure and correction. She will need her future home to continue this and keep her on the “good girl” path. Both are up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm negative, spayed, and microchipped. If adopted together, fee is $350 for both dogs or $250 for one.
Poppy was found in a shelter, is filling out and is available for adoption! The picture on the right side is from when she was first brought into the rescue, so you can have an idea of how far she has come. She is a love bug and just wants to sit next to her people. She gets along with small dogs and would probably ignore cats as well. She is around 7 years old and a Cane Corso, so she is a big love bug.
She is currently positive for heartworms, but does not have any microfilaria. Because of her age and the emaciated state that she was found in, we have opted to do the slow kill method for the heartworms. She has already gone through the month of doxycycline and now she will just need to receive the monthly heartworm preventative to help clear them out of her system. This will take at least one year for her to test negative for heartworms, but as long as your pups get their preventative then their is no chance for them to spread. This sounds a lot more scary than it is, she doesn't need any special care in regards to getting rid of the heartworms. She has been vaccinated and microchipped and her adoption fee is $150.
RUBY ROSE (ROSIE)

MARTHA - Adoption Pending!
MARTHA is an absolute sweetheart, who is about 8-9 months old and is likely a hound/boxer mix. She's currently being trained in our prison training program and is learning her basic commands well! She loves playing with other dogs and cuddling with people, and she hasn't met a chew toy she hasn't liked. She is still very much a puppy and has a ton of energy, so she'll need an active home who can keep up with her. She has not been cat tested (yet), and we have no reservations about her living with kids.
She weighs about 35 lbs, is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Her adoption fee is $250.
ROLLO is a beautiful 55 lb heeler-staffy mix, who is about a year old, and is currently 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 very dog-selective and leash reactive. As a result, he would be 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.
Wrinkles - ADOPTION PENDING!
Wrinkles is a 7 yr old pug mix, weighing 23 pounds, and is the same height as a standard pug. She came to us after a case of very serious neglect and it has taken awhile to get her looking and feeling healthy again. Despite her past, she still wants to love people and is a joyful little dog who loves naps, toys, and snuggling. Although she gets along very well with other dogs and even cats, she deserves a family where she can be the only dog and the focus of all their affection. She loves to sleep with someone and burrow under the covers where she is content to sleep quietly all night long. Her foster does not recommend crating or leaving her home alone all day, she spent too much time alone in the past.
She will do best with a family where someone is home throughout the day to take her out a few times a day and Wrinkles will do her best to make that person feel like they are the center of her world! Her soulful eyes and occasional grunty talking let you know just how much she loves and appreciates you. Wrinkles does have a slightly narrowing trachea that caused coughing in the past, but she takes a daily steroid that keeps her airway open and allows her to howl when someone knocks at the door! She gets occasional itchiness as the result of the past inflammation that resulted from her neglect. A quick bath in some chlorhexidine shampoo once in awhile keeps her itch free and gives her incredibly soft fur. Her foster absolutely adores her and hates to see her leave, but knows that this special little girl deserves to be the center of someone’s universe.
Wrinkles is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Her adoption fee is $250.
This little pomeranian was found in a shelter. She is 8 years old and about 9 lbs. Tasha is a nice girl, a little shy, and getting along well with the other dogs in her foster home. She does like to go outside to potty and lay in the sun if the weather is nice. She has been fine with a granddaughter who visits and we don't know about cats. We are hoping for a fenced yard and a small dog to keep her company. She is vaccinated, heartworm negative, spayed, and micro chipped. Her adoption donation is $250.
Dresden - ADOPTION PENDING!
He is a 2.5 year old black lab mix, who weighs about 40 lbs. He has done really well in our prison training program and knows far more than the basics! He loves cuddling and affection from people, and is both toy/food motivated, so he’s easy to train!
His handler reports he’s very easy to handle and even loves getting baths. He did report that he’s uneasy around other dogs and isn’t quite sure how to play with them. He would probably do best as an only dog, but with the right other dog and slow introduction, he’d likely be fine (he hasn’t shown any aggression; he just doesn’t really know how what to think). He has lived with kids in the past and been fine with older kids.
DRESDEN is neutered, housebroken, crate-trained, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative. His adoption fee is $250.
RUDY is a 4 year old terrier mix (possibly Parson Russell Terrier), who came to us from a local shelter. He’s a very well-behaved pup, who already knows how to use the doggy door in his foster home. He’s 10 lbs and not a huge barker, but he does get competitive with the other dogs in the home. As a result, we’d prefer he be an only dog. He loves people and would excel at being a lapdog!
RUDY is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm negative, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $250.
Maggie, a 4 year old boxer mix, was found in a shelter and came into rescue slightly heartworm positive. She has now almost completed treatment and is ready to meet her new owners. She is extremely sweet and loving, gets along with other dogs and is just happy to have a warm home. She will need to be kept on the monthly heartworm preventative for life. She will be a great addition to any family. Maggie has been spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $250.
BENJI is a 4 year old Border Terrier mix, who is currently in our prison training program. He came to us very skittish and scared of people, but has started to open up recently. He's learning to trust people and will take a treat gently from a hand. Once he trusts someone, he is very affectionate and cuddly. Until then, he's happy to hang out with his canine pals!
Benji is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and is heartworm negative. His adoption fee is $250.
HENRY is a small, 24 lb terrier mix. He is a very sweet and loving boy, who loves attention and cuddling. He's housebroken, enjoys getting his energy out! He's done well with female dogs and likes to play for hours! He listens well and tries to please his foster too.
HENRY likes long walks, chew toys (and toys in general!), treats, sticking his head in the shower, and watching tv. He doesn't like the vaccuum, dogs on tvs, strangers who sneak up on him. He will bark if he’s scared or anxious. He is still a bit mouthy, so we'd like for him to go to a home with older children.
He has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and is heartworm negative. His adoption fee is $250.
CHET is currently in our prison training program and doing very well! He is a pretty easygoing guy, who just loves to hang out with people and snuggle as much as possible. He also gets along great with other dogs! We don’t anticipate he’d have any issues with kids, but he has not been cat-tested.
We think CHET is a 2 year old chihuahua mix, possibly with Beagle. He weighs about 20 lbs, is crate-trained and knows his basic commands. He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and heartworm negative. His adoption fee is $250.
NOMI is a special needs, female 9 month 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.
EDDIE is a 3 year old Wheaten Scottish Terrier who was found in a shelter because he has dry eye in both eyes and will need drops all his life. We are currently getting him repaired by an eye specialist and he will be ready for adoption once his situation improves. He was in our prison training program and has been described as loving and playful. He gets along with most dogs but seems to prefer smaller ones and we don't know about cats. He weighs about 20 lbs and has been vaccinated, heart worm negative, microchipped and neutered. His adoption fee is $250.
Molly is a very sweet girl, who is likely around 6 years old. She's a purebred boxer and unfortunately has typical issues that many other boxers have. She had a cluster of severe seizures in December, but our vet was finally able to get them under control with medication. She will need to be on the medication for the rest of her life most likely, and would benefit from daily CBD oil.
Molly does well with children, dogs, and chickens! She loves to snuggle and lay around, but also enjoys a leisurely walk. Molly is working on her house manners, as she has a tendency to counter surf, looking for anything her humans may have left out! She knows how to sit and as you can see, she looks adorable doing so! She does well in a crate and is housetrained, but due to the seizure medication, she drinks a LOT of water and therefore, needs to irinate a lot. We would recommend her living with someone who is home frequently.
She is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Her adoption fee is $150.
