Friends Looking for Homes

Gunther

a 1.5 year old July Fox Hound. He is very energetic, loves to play. Tennis balls are a favorite. He is getting much better with his manners. Walks well on a leash. Knows most commands such as sit, stay, down, wait, leave it. He is very good in a crate, and actually prefers to be in it when left alone. He would be great with a family with older kids as he doesn’t always realize how big he is. He’s good with and loves kids, but may knock smaller children down with his enthusiasm. He is not cat friendly. Gunther does well with most other dogs after a proper introduction. Gunther 1

Ugg

is a 3 year old, male mixed breed with short hair and dark brindle coloring and he weighs aprox 20 pounds
Fun and loving. Very energetic and loves to play. So far good with kids and eats with other dogs so no food aggression.
He was not socialized with other males and can get dominate but has not shown any signs of aggression but has not been around many to test. He is around his friends and they get along fine. He is currently kept together with Speedy and they get along great.

 

Tally

Image may contain: dog and outdooris intelligent, energetic, loyal and loving. She warms up well to other dogs after slow introductions, especially those that don’t get in her face. She is house trained and crate trained, and is respectful of cats as she gets along well with her foster’s cat. She does well with adults and children. When meeting someone new she barks and pulls on her lead but then becomes submissive as the new person approaches to meet her. She takes treats gently. Tally is very energetic; she would do well with an active family. She is also VERY agile and can easily jump a four foot fence. Because of this interested adopters should have a six foot fence so that Tally can safely get her “zoomies” out. Tally craves love and attention. She loves spending her days in the home office with her foster dad (especially when he’s not distracted by his day job). She is up to date on vaccines, spayed and microchipped. She is looking for a home office to call her own! Got room in your organization for this sweetheart?

Toby 

is a male, neutered beagle mix, about 7 years old. He weighs in at 24 lbs. Very sweet personality, totally housebroken, gets along with other dogs, cats and children. He does show more than a passing interest in pet birds. Would need to be supervised with birds. He does great in a crate, will go in when told “Kennel up”. Has most commands down pat, except when his nose is on the trail he may not “come” as commanded. Easy going, a joy to have around.

Stormy

Her story is a sad one, her first owner passed away, she then lived in a home with an elderly lady for about 6 months, who is now terminally ill. This poor girl has known love but it has also been heartbreak. We know she is 2 years young, house trained, good with other dogs, cats and children. tests heart worm negative, and is UTD on all her shots and she’s spayed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oscar

Image may contain: dog, grass, outdoor and natureis a handsome 20-week-old male Plott Hound mix weighing approximately 35 lbs. He loves to cuddle and play fetch with tennis balls. His mom is amazingly sweet and weighs about 45 lbs pounds. Oscar will likely be larger than his mom. He is neutered, microchipped and has received all of his puppy vaccinations.

Oscar is good with other dogs and children. He has not been tested with cats but his foster does not believe cats would present a problem (it’s challenging finding a cat who is puppy tolerant ). He is working on mastering crate training and potty training but still has a few accidents if his foster isn’t on the ball. He very much enjoys running around the yard with his sister and “the big dogs” as well as playing fetch with the tennis ball.

Sugar 


She is 3 years young, super sweet, house trained, will get her spay and tail repair stitches out next Tuesday. She will be scheduled for another surgery to open up her nostrils and trim her uvula down so she has an easier time breathing through that snub nose of hers.
We are taking apps now but she won’t be available until recovered from surgeries.

Skylar 

Skylar is small boxer so named because he was flown to us from the mean streets of the Redlands near Miami Florida.  He is about 4 years old and was pretty scared of people at first.  He had been abandoned and was shot, which destroyed his left femur (leg) near his hip.  He had a limp that barely revealed the pain and damage he had endured.  He was missing some fur and a scrawny guy.

The destroyed bone was removed and he has learned to walk on all four again, but when he runs it is a 3 legged race.  He now wakes up happy everyday.  He wants to play and is learning to share toys.  Skylar is a little plump now but will skip a meal if not hungry now.  He is still terrified of thunder and really wants to be cuddled then.  He needs a thoughtful family and time to learn he is safe still.

 

 

 

 

Riley

is a 2 year old Terrier /Mix. She is UTD with all her shots, she is neutered and Mircrochipped . Riley is house trained, loves people and is very good with children we suggest children 6 and up she is playful however she is not cat friendly. She has very good house manors and does not beg at the dinner table. She also very smart and easy to train, love to go on walks. Her Mom and Dad are seniors and due to a medical situation are forced to find her a new loving home.


 

 

 

Pepper

is an approximately 3-year-old Female Lab / American Bulldog mix who weighs-in at just over 50 lbs. She was surrendered to the rescue by a homeless veteran who had been evicted from his home after his friend passed away. The owner was living on a covered front porch at a neighbor’s house when volunteers met him. He had two dogs, one of which was picked up by another rescue. In order to get both the owner and his second dog off the streets, ARFN accepted Pepper into the rescue just before Tropical Storm Alberto, passed through the area. She is a very playful, affectionate, and attention-seeking dog. She adores belly rubs and loves to give kisses! She appears to be house trained and crate trained. She takes treats very gently and allows toys to be taken from her mouth. She is good with other well-mannered dogs after introductions. She prefers NOT to be in a home where there are cats. She gets along well with adults and children, however, she is not recommended for homes with small children as this girl has a lot of energy! Pepper knows the sit command. She could benefit from obedience training and lead work as she pulls when being walked. She is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all of her vaccinations. She has a wonderful temperament and is a fantastic dog…definitely worth her salt! If you’d like to meet her please visit arfn.org and complete an online adoption application.

Linus

I am a 3 year old Boston Terrier and my name is Linus. I’m pretty shy and not sure of my new life cause see I was raised in a cage. I have a lot to learn about living in a house and my foster mom says #1 is learning what the great outdoors is for, not sure what she means? Today I went on a leash for the first time and I didn’t like it much but I’ll learn cause I’m super smart. I can climb out of my 4 foot pen with no problem! My new family is going to have to be super patient with me cause this a scary new world for me. I’m going to get “fixed” this week whatever that means. Linus needs a family who has time for him and not to be crated all day. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Speedy

is a 3 year old mixed breed, neutered male with short hair tan with black tipping. He is aprox 26 pounds fun and loving. He is very energetic and loves to play. So far good with kids and eats with other dogs so no food aggression. Was not socialized with other males and can get dominate but has not shown any signs of aggression but has not been around many to test. He is around his friends and they get along fine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 King

is a 3 year old mixed breed with broke coat tan and white coloring. He weighs aprox 35 pounds. He is fun, loving and very energetic and loves to play. So far good with older kids and eats with other female dogs but can be bossy with other males. Was not socialized with other males and can get dominate , has shown any signs of bossiness toward other males but has not hurt any other males. He is around his friends and they get along fine. He is currently kept together with a large female.

I do suggest that they go to homes with people that are strong leaders with dogs and where there are no other male dogs in the home. They need an alpha and should not get the idea that they are the alpha. Defiantly not first dog owners. They have never been around any other type of animal so I have no information if they are ok with cats or any thing else. But so far they are very lovable to adults and children.
