Rescue Me ID: 16-09-27-00032Bristol (female)

Beagle    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    She's a great dog. Acts like a young pup even though she is 10. We are seeking the perfect home from her since she doesn't do well with our young children. She is food aggressive and has recently bitten a our child over food. She gets along with dogs but is very dominate so would do best with no dogs or a submissive male dog. No female dogs. She is good at dog parks and playmates just would prefer solo living due to food agression. She's always had great health care. Up to date on all vacancies. Will be rehome with crate (fhe loves to be in her den), bed and food.

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-06-00458Socrates (male)

Glen of Imaal Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    My wife and I have a 4-year-old dog named Socrates. He is probably a terrier mix. He weighs about 20 pounds and is very cute but he suffered severe trauma when very young. Perhaps because of that incident, he has always been very anxious and unstable. We have a new baby and cannot trust Socrates around her, so we are looking for a new home for him. Socrates (he also responds to his Cambodian name, Sok) was rescued at a few weeks old by an animal welfare organization in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. He was found on the grounds of a pagoda, hiding behind a potted plant along with two kittens. He was covered in ticks and fleas, his fur was matted, and ... (Read More)his injured eye was badly infected. We adopted him shortly after that, when he was still only about 8 weeks old. With antibiotics, his eye infection cleared, but the eye was permanently damaged and useless. About a year later, we moved back to Alaska, bringing Socrates with us. Socrates has had a good life here in Alaska, but he remains a troubled creature. His fearful/anxious condition has caused him to bite several people (all adults). He usually bites only after giving growl warnings, though not always. He has bitten mainly hands though recently he bit a knee. He has also attempted to bite feet. Because of his size, none of his bites have been too serious, though they can result in bleeding and bruising. Some of his aggression is clearly food-related or otherwise protective, but at other times it is unpredictable. He takes a long time to trust humans, but he seems to enjoy being around other dogs (though he sometimes gets into scuffles if triggered). He has lived with cats most of his life, and, while he has never hurt them seriously, he growls at and charges them sometimes. He is wary of children, and because of his history of biting and general instability we have been unable to socialize him with them. Despite his issues, Socrates is trainable and eager to please. When he knows and trusts a person he gives wonderful greetings and the occasional cuddle or kiss (though he can change his mind and growl or snap suddenly). He tends to be much less anxious when outside. He has been through several obedience training classes; while he is smart and generally obedient, his anxiety is often overwhelming, and all of the instructors have suggested that nothing can be done for him. He is neutered and microchipped and up to date on his shots. At the advice of our vet, we have given him prozac, but it is unclear if it has had any effect. He loves playing fetch, going on hikes, and exploring outside, and he especially responds well to stable routine. While he allows my wife and I to bathe him, he hates brushing, fur cutting, nail trimming, or any other grooming. While we understand his behavior and have established a balance with Socrates, we now have a baby and the sad truth is that we cannot trust him around a young child and cannot manage the logistics of keeping them separated. Above all we want him to have a good life and we do not know if we can give him that anymore. Our families have encouraged us to put him down, and even our vet has told us that euthanasia is probably the only option, but we are hoping that there is someone out there willing to give him another chance. It must be someone who is understanding of troubled dogs and able to provide him with the routine and safe experiences that he needs. Ideally, it would be a home with other dogs, no children, and a safe outdoor area where he can be active. We understand that these are specific, high expectations, but we have to try. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-19-00517warren (male)

Rottweiler    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello, I am looking to find my dog a good loving home that he can go to, a home that understands Rottweilers. Warren is about 5 years old and has lived with me, my kids and husband since he was 6 months old. He is your typical rottie, protective but a big baby. We are moving from Alaska and I cannot provide a big enough space for him. I hate to give him up, but we are moving and living in a RV for the next month or two and I do not know what will be available for rent when we get to Wisconsin. He's just to big for me to handle with everything that is going on.

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-23-00447Chica (female)

Lab Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Chica was rescued in Mexico when she was 7 weeks. She has lived with one female, owner, and teenage boy and a cat. Although she was around a cat, she wants to chase them. Our cat, who is now adopted out, tolerated Chica but also had downstairs to retreat to when being chased. She was around the cat since a pup but wants to chase cats when she sees them outside. Not sure how she would do with a new cat, might take a bit to adjust. Not always good with other female dogs, some she is okay and others not so much. Chica loves to be outside and likes to take walks, hikes and just going anywhere you are going. She likes to chase balls and a frisbee ... (Read More)and loves to run free. Chica is good on a leash and listens to commands such as sit, stay, wait, leave it, up, no, okay, etc. Chica can be very protective of her owner but does like people and most kids. She can be snappy so I would not recommend smaller children. I really love Chica, she is a sweet dog and just wants attention and to be loved. It has been difficult to give her up but I have developed skin allergies and can not be around animal hair. My living situation has changed in the last 6-8 months, my son moved out of state, I work long hours and don't have the time to spend with Chica that she needs. She has never been cared by anyone other than myself or my son. Chica used to sleep on my bed but can no longer be in my bedroom. With all these changes, Chica has been a bit down and really needs time and attention. Please contact me for more info about Chica, she is very special and needs the right person to love her. Thank you. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-05-00197Murphy (male)

American Bulldog    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    3 1/2 year old Mr. Personality. He is sweet and friendly. Does not potty in the house. He's had two accidents in two years. He is left alone for 8-10 hours a day and is a good boy, doesn't chew. He's an inside dog. Sleeps with us, great hiking dog. Off leash he stays with us, will wonder a little but comes when called. He likes to go but has to ride IN the vehicle. He refuses to ride in the back of a truck. But he rides well in the back seat. If you think you are going to put him in a kennel think again. Not happening. He's not a timid or aggressive dog but he's been scared a few times like when we tried to take him to the groomer for a ... (Read More)bath. He knows tricks, we trained him to go through his trick thing before he eats, on command of course. He is really a good boy and makes me laugh. He is very smart and doesn't forget. He is excitable when visitors come, it's rather annoying until he calms himself. hes loves kids but around small children he is just excitable at first. He's been around my grand kids but there are times when I have to put him in a room as I don't want him to accidently knock the small ones over. He had to be taken from him mom pretty early. To early I think and he honestly doesn't know how to play with other dogs. His play looks like fighting. When we go on walks he's fine but if he's lut in the yard and sees a dog, hair goes up and he barks until I come tell him he can't bark anymore. His mom was a pulling dog and his grandparents were champion pulling dogs. He sometimes pulls on the lease. He just beems with personality. One day we saw him outside after the first snow building a snowman. We had him ring a bell to go outside, he would pick that up again I think. With his mom he doesn't rough house, I suppose because I never allowed it, with my older sons and husband he rough houses, annoys them till they play with him. he will be wagging his tail and growling at them. I view that as dominance which is why I say he's a little on that side. He is extremely obedient to women and doesn't play like that with me. He's been so wanting his dad's attention I actually need to stand between him and my husband and just walk Murphy back. He needs someone that understands the breed and understands the dog. This dog....lifelong companion, loyal...all the hard work has already been done. He is well loved and finding him a good home is devastating me. I be able to have him another 4-5 years maybe but have decided it's best to find him a new forever home now while he is young. Better for my dog, not better for me. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Kenworth is a 2 year old chow chow that was saved from the city shelter in anchorage. He was very sad and confused looking for his previous owner who had left him there. Kenworth is currently in foster in anchorage and is starting to come out of his shell. He has made friends with another female dog there and is starting to respond to being called. He is curious and playful but is still a bit sad. Do you have the love and patience Kenworth needs? Preferably a home with older children and maybe a female dog. Please email us for a application so we can answer any other questions. Breed experience would be needed for Kenworth.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Alaska
    Dogs can make good pets in Alaska if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Low-Cost Alaska Spay & Neuter Clinics
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. There are hundreds of dog breeds with extremely varied characteristics and sizes, from the tiniest teacup Chihuahua to the hugest Mastiff, but all of these breeds make up just one species Canis lupus familiaris and can theoretically breed with one another (although there can be practical and health related constraints.) Dogs can hear much lower frequencies than humans, over twice as high as humans, and about four times as far as humans.
