Rescue Me ID: 14-09-02-00305Cody (male)

Mastiff    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Cody is a 5 year old mastiff. He has started to become more agrressive towards our other dog and my husband. We work long hours and not able to give him the time he needs which may not be heling his temperment. I have a 13 year old son and am becoming leery with the dog around my son, and others. I would like to find him a good home vs having him put down. He is generally a easy going, laid back dog. Extremely protective of me & my son. He likes attention and can hopefully find a good, loving home. Some picutres available, I just need to upload.

Corgi Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Seriously, have you ever seen a dog this cute? Look at those little legs! Sweet Bree is being fostered in Delaware and if interested, emails should go to: pals@psknet.com. Bree is around a year old and is still puppyish, but with an average energy level. She's been going to doggie daycare and loves it. She is currently living with 3 cats and she likes them all. The youngest cat enjoys when Bree licks her ears. (Blech.) Bree is about 30 pounds and has liked everyone she meets (she greets each person at the dog park), but seems to REALLY like women and girls. She's about 30 pounds, spayed and UTD on vaccinations. She did test lyme positive and ... (Read More)is in the middle of a course of antibiotics for that. We were told to expect a lot of barking since she has Corgi in her, but so far, she barks a lot less than we're used to with other fosters. She's great in the car and doesn't heel, but doesn't pull on the leash. Everyone who meets her thinks she's absolutely adorable. Thanks for reading! (Less)

    Adorable, black chihuahua is in need of a new home due to my health issues. The best fit would be a single woman without children. Tootsie loves to play fetch inside and lay on your lap. She is kennel trained overnight and housebroken. She is not good with men. A fenced yard or walking on a leash would be necessary. She is a real sweetheart to the right woman.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Delaware
    Dogs can make good pets in Delaware 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!
