Rescue Me ID: 16-02-07-00393Bonez (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

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

    Who: Neutered male brindle American Pit Bull Terrier up for adoption. His name is Bonez and he is about 2.5 years. No medical issues in the past or present and up to date on all shots/vaccinations. Reason: My job will require me to relocate several times over the next 7 years including potential international moves. This is not fair for Bonez. Also, I live alone and Bonez is a people-oriented dog and will be much happier with a family. About Bonez: Bonez is a very sweet and gentle dog. He loves humans and is very well behaved, especially around children, and loves meeting new people. He is playful but does so while giving people ... (Read More)their space and does not get possessive over toys; which is ideal for playing with children. He walks very well on the leash, loves exploring, is a very observant dog and likes to give a lot of kisses if you will allow him to. He is very obedient, easily trainable and will quickly adapt to whatever routine you set for him. He is also kennel trained (you can have his kennel and blankets at no cost). Caution: Bonez does not get along well with some dogs. His ideal home would be with a couple or family that does not have pets. Bonus: Bonez and I were a certified Pet Therapy team (I can tell you more about that) and regularly visited physical therapy clinics, a preschool and a nursing home for children with physical and mental disabilities. He has had a lot of socialization around people, children and machinery. We had to stop because my job started to get more intense and I lost time for these visits. Re-homing fee: I am not trying to profit off of losing my best friend. However, I do want to deter people that are not very serious. Therefore, the re-homing fee is small and will go to Rescue Me. Contact: My name is Daniel and you can reach me by phone, 603.831.0317, or by email, dwhitney@udel.edu. (Less)

    Ohhhh Nylah..... This 10 month old American bulldog came to us after being surrendered to BARCS due to her breed...her stay in the shelter really traumatized her but thanks to her amazing fosters, she is now ready to find her forever home. Nylah LOVES other dogs, is cat friendly and would be fine with older/calmer children. She's met several kids and been great with most of them, but high energy kids seem to make her a little nervous. According to her foster parents, Nylah is 'a dream of a foster'. She's house broken, relatively low key for her age and super attentive. Couple that with her ADORABLE face and you have the perfect forever ... (Read More)friend. Please let us know if you'd be interested in making Nylah part of your family. (Less)

    Hi there, I'm Papaya! I am a 1 year old neutered 6 1/2 lb spunky boy in search of my forever home. I was brought in to a local shelter as a stray, adopted out and my new family returned me because they said I bit one of their children.

As with my breed, I can be a little bit nippy if I don't want to be held at that particular moment. I have been marking in my new foster home so I will need patience and / or a belly band in my new home but other than that I am perfect. smile emoticon I have lots of energy, love being with my family and ...

Eric is crate trained and house trained and is a smart boy. He loves the water, so he can be your swimming companion in the summer. Eric knows sit and we are working on leash training. He would do best in a home alone or possibly with another female dog. Since Eric is a big boy and needs a little work on his manners, he should be in a home with older children.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Mama Blessing came to us from BARCS after she was seized for neglect and being bred without a license. This poor girl is just over one, and a big puppy herself, the people that owned her had no business making her a mama.... Blessing is a solid girl that's WONDERFUL with people of all sizes. She loves children and doesn't seem to mind cats. Blessing has been ok with the male dog in her foster home but cannot go to a home with any other female dogs. Ideally, we'd like to find her a home with no other dogs, but are willing to do meet and greets with calm, submissive males. Blessing is house broken, crate trained, up to date on shots and will ... (Read More)be spayed as soon as the vet gives us the go ahead. Please help us find Blessing her forever home for the holidays! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-12-06-00014Sarge (male)

Bulldog    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Blind 

    Sarge is a handsome 4 year old, 70# hunk of an English Bulldog who came to us from a breeding farm. He arrived with severe entropian and a condition called 'dry eye'. He is recovering nicely from his surgery but will likely need eye drops for the rest of his life to keep them lubricated and comfortable. His years of living with the entropian untreated have left him mostly blind, so a physically fenced yard is required. He is very unsure of himself in new environments but once acclimated, hes a complete goof!! Having lived in a barn his whole life, he will need a patient home that can work with him on things like leash walking and house ... (Read More)breaking. Experience with a dog who has limited vision would be helpful. No small children please and no other male dogs in the home. An established female dog in the home is ideal. (Less)

Bulldog Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Tuleah is a chubby 5 year old, 40# Beagle/English Bulldog (Beabull) who came to us from a breeding farm. She is very shy but will come sit in your lap if you sit and talk to her. She knows nothing about houses, leashes, or manners but is very smart and picking up crate training quickly. She would do best in a quiet home with a very laid back male dog to hang out with and learn from. Physical fence required.

Rat Terrier    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Totem is a 1year old, 5# Rat Terrier that is looking for a furrever home. Before rescue, it seems he was passed around a bit and never really socialized or trained...he spent most of him time in a kennel. He's very shy with new people and needs a patient, quiet home with no children. He gets very nervous around bouncy other dogs so any canine companions should be pretty low key.

Pug Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Holly is a very sweet little girl who got lost and whose family never came to claim her from the shelter. We think she is a puggle. She has a wonderful temperament and a bounce in her step. She loves everyone including other dogs and cats. She would probably do fine with children as long as they know how to treat her respectfully. All she wants is a family to love her and let her spend her time with them. Holly is housetrained and will walk on a leash. She would rather be with her people than in a crate but will tolerate a crate if she must. Holly weighs just 12 pounds. She is just waiting for her new family to come and adopt her. If you ... (Read More)think that is you, please email or call about sweet little Holly. Update---Holly is a breast cancer survivor. So far her health has remained excellent following removal of the lump. We hope that some special and compassionate person will still want to give her a foster or furever home. Holly is waiting for her turn to be chosen. Email or call to meet her! (Less)

Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Delilah was an owner surrender. The family no longer wanted her and we knew because she was deaf she was less adoptable (if at all) in the SPCA. Delilah is a 3 yr old mixed breed. She is medium sized at 38 lbs (which is actually pretty small to us!) She is very sweet! She is okay with the cat here and the other dogs we currently have. She has had some special training (because she is deaf) which we can show to her new forever family. You wouldn't even know she was deaf unless we told you! She is very smart and easy to train. She loves to go for walks and rides in the car. She loves to run around and play with the other dogs but she also ... (Read More)loves to lay in your lap. She is a perfect medium energy level. We do require that you have a secure fence because she is deaf. This girl will be hard for us to let go. She is definitely a favorite here and we might even be a little extra picky about her forever home because she is such a gem! (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hank is a beautiful blue Pitbull boy! He is about 60 lbs and approximately 4yrs old. He was found as a stray and only weighed 38lbs. He very quickly came back to health at his foster home and we got to meet the sweet boy hiding behind the skinny stray : ) He is the sweetest dog you will ever meet! He LOVES everyone. He is very smart and easy to train. He knows all of his basic commands very well. He also walks on a leash like a pro! He seems to be too interested in the kitties at his foster home so he should have a home where someone is willing to teach him that kitties are our friends or where he will not be around kitties. He has not been ... (Read More)socialized well with different dogs. We are working on this with him now. If he were adopted tomorrow he would have to be the only dog in the house or with a family who was willing to do very slow introductions to their other dogs over weeks or months. Hank was picked up with his doggy friend who he was with as a stray so we know he can get along with other dogs. We will continue to work with him to help him socialize better with other dogs. We don't expect Hank to be around very long. He is beautiful and sooooo sweet! (Less)

Boxer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Sam is a very loving dog. He is high energy so we would prefer he go to a home without small children. He loves his humans very much and wants to protect them so he is a little unsure of strangers. He would make a great running partner. He does need a confident owner who can help him get over his anxiety with strangers.

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!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Low-Cost Delaware 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.) The dog was the earliest domesticated animal. Dogs are red-green colorblind. Dogs can hear much lower frequencies than humans, over twice as high as humans, and about four times as far as humans.
