Jordy!! The vet thinks she’s about 2 years old. We’re not exactly sure of her breed, the guesses at the vet office include Italian Greyhound, Terrier, and Jack Russel Terrier. She’s currently 14lbs, but very skinny, she needs to put on a few pounds to be at an ideal weight. Jordy has loved all humans that she’s met. We feel Jordy would probably transition best to a home without other dogs. There are other dogs in her foster home, and they all get along much of the time, but Jordy is very reactive when the others get too close to food/treats/any activity in the kitchen, or when she’s receiving attention from her foster mom (sitting on the couch, in bed, etc., she doesn’t want the others to get closer to her foster mom than she is). Now, we think that with time and consistency she’ll realize there’s enough food and love for everyone and she won’t need to be protective, and her foster mom will continue to work on correcting this issue. We would consider adopting Jordy to a home with other dogs only if the owner is dedicated and experienced with training and correcting this behavior. Jordy is potty trained. There were a couple accidents the first day in her foster home, but she quickly figured out the routine and handles business when she’s let outside in the backyard. She is working on learning to use the doggie door. She was just spayed and vaccinated on 2/8 and can now start leash training… she doesn’t need any as she walks so well on the leash.. She rides well in the car using a harness/seatbelt attached. Jordy was found as a stray and nobody claimed her, so her history is a mystery. She doesn’t appear to know basic commands, but she’s very food motivated and will learn quickly with the use of treats for training. She sleeps all through the night, curled up in bed with her foster family. Jordy loves soft blankies, and snuggling up next to you on the couch. She’s only been in her foster home for a little less than a week. The first few days she spent a lot of the time sleeping and napping. It’s probably been a long while since she’s felt comfortable enough to relax, so she just had to decompress. Each day she shows us more of her personality, she’s starting to play with toys, running around the house and yard, and is figuring out how to enjoy life! I
Doogie is a sweetheart! He loves people and other compatible dogs. Doogie is a Dachshund mix, approximately 3-4 years old, neutered, current on vaccines and chipped. He weighs 12.6 lbs. He loves being with people and is a snuggle bug! While Doogie may be shy at first and may bark when first meeting you, he is actually a very sweet and loving little dog. He does not mark in the house and is housetrained with a dog door. He walks well on leash. His foster feels that he can do well as an only dog with someone who is at home more often than not. However, Doogie really would benefit greatly having another small compatible dog(s) for company. Please note that we strive to find the best fit for our adoptable pets and prospective adopters. Therefore, we request that anyone interested in Doogie to please complete our online adoption application at wecareforanimals.org. Doogie’s adoption fee is $125.

Fostering Saves Lives
Fostering is a commitment to save homeless pets. Fosters provide a safe haven for a cat or dog until it is adopted. Sharing foster responsibilities with another foster is also an option. Fostering could be one of the most rewarding experiences for you. To express interest in fostering, please complete our online foster application at wecareforanimals.org.
