Rescue Me ID: 15-01-25-00144Claudia (female)

Pointer Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Hi, it's me, Claudia, the newest pointer girl in MN! I am glad to be at my new foster home, but no one told me about all the rules! I am about two, but my foster mom says I have no manners, and she expects me to learn ;( I can't go wherever I want and I can't jump up on people, counters, or furniture, where is the fun in that??? Today she made me do school work, ARGH!! At least she had treats for me, but I don't know if I like this class on sit, wait, stay and drop it. I give her lots of snuggles and hugs, and even gave her a kiss, and when I am not following the rules I try to cuddle with her more when she corrects me! We will have to see ... (Read More)about this arrangement, my foster mom said something about going for a leash walk tonight, I am practicing my sled dog pull since it is icy out :-) :-) Claudia is located near Madelia, MN.

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-24-00314Diesel (male)

Newfoundland Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis 

    LARGE LOVEABLE DOG, BUT MUST BE IN A KID-FREE HOME asap Sad to say, but we have to find a new home for our large, loveable dog. Name: Diesel Age: 2 %BD years old (Born in May of 2012) Breed: Mastiff/Newfoundland mix Weight: 140lbs * All vaccines and check-ups are up to date. To be as transparent as possible here is the story: Diesel has grown up around children and been loved his whole life, but as he has grown he has become intolerant and almost jealous of any and all children. He has recently shown physical aggression toward some which is very concerning. We have 2 kindergarten age boys who have friends over often, so obviously this is ... (Read More)not tolerable. He is very loyal and protective, just does not care for young children. Also: because he is so large, he has some chronic hip discomfort issues that are not surgically treatable as far as we have been recommended. We give him dog pain pills and an aspirin a couple times a day he which seems to do just fine with mobility when his pain is managed. We have his Newfoundland fur/hair is groomed 'professionally' 2 times a year. All-in-all we TRULY hate to see him go (as we are all very attached), but for the safety of our children and others who may come to our house'| he must go. Finding a loving home for him is a much better option than putting him down (which unfortunately would be the only option if we can't find a home for him). (Less)

Lola is very playful and very much a puppy! She is working hard on her housebreaking and will be adopted only as an indoor family dog. Lola would love to have another dog in the household to play with. She would benefit from a fenced yard to keep her exercised and safe, or to be able to visit a nearby dog park to burn off some of that energy.

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-09-00383Sparky (male)

German Shorthaired Pointer    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis 

    Sparky is so gentle and amazing with all people. He has never met a human that he doesn't like! He is never aggressive and does not bark at all. He is not aggressive towards other dogs and is not very interested in them. He avoids/runs away from playful/young dogs who jump on him or try to play. He does just fine with older dogs/those who leave him be. Sparky was an amazing bird dog in his day but his hips are not what they used to be & he may have arthritis as well. Sparky is not incontinent, but does frequently need to go out, and cannot hold pee/poop for long if he is not let out. He has a kidney condition which makes him want to ... (Read More)drink a lot and therefore pee more often as well. We foster babies in our home and have children of our own, and are so busy we are not able to give Sparks the love and attention he deserves in his elder years, along with letting him out as much as he needs. He is an amazingly sweet dog with still a fair amount of frisk and fun in him and we are hoping there is a home out there somewhere that would be a good fit for him in his elder years. (Less)

    Hello! My name is Nadia! I came into the Humane Society as a stray. I was found running down a country road all alone. I didn't know where I was so I just sat down on the side of the road. I was picked up by someone on their way to work and brought here to the shelter. I am a very sweet girl and I just love to be near you. I will sit, walk nice on a leash, and I ride really well in the car too. I am not a fan of being in a kennel though. I am very curious and I will wander around just checking it all out! I get along with some dogs, cats, and I do well with children. I am looking for a family to adopt me. I am sure that once you meet me you ... (Read More)won't be able to go home without me.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi there! My name is Lolly! I came into the Humane Society as a stray. I was found wandering around all by myself in the Minnesota cold which isn't very good for a girl with short hair like me. I was brought to the shelter because the family who found me already had canine companions of their own and they couldn't keep me at their house. I am a very sweet girl but I can be a little bit shy at first and it may take me a little while to come around and show you what a good girl I can be! I do well with children and some other dogs, I am nice to small animals but I should be watched with any cats that may be in my new furrever home. I like to ... (Read More)just walk around and take my time to sniff out things that are new to me. It is so nice to be near you so I can see what it is you are doing. I do like to go for walks with you to take it all in! I would just love to meet you and spend some quality time with you to see if I could be the girl that you've been looking for! I just know that we will get along great and I will be moving into my new forever home today! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-06-00354Kirby (male)

German Shorthaired Pointer    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Kirby is a warmhearted German Shorthaired Pointer adoption dog. We believe he is purebred, and he has a classic GSP look. We are the third family to have him. The previous owners were unable to keep him due to a change in their living schedule; he would have to be home alone in a kennel most of the day. The owners before that apparently rescued him from a breeder. They were becoming too old to care for an animal, especially a high-energy dog. He is approximately 5 years old. He is house trained and will let you know if he needs to go out. We've had Kirby for just about a year. We have found him to be a loving, energetic dog who likes to go ... (Read More)on leashed walks and also to play with other dogs. Due to possible abuse during his early years, he is rather submissive and not at all aggressive. He still shows some odd behaviors from treatment during his early years, such as at times becoming fearful if we wear different clothes, or barking at people due to the sound of their voice. He is afraid of short, sharp noises, such as firecrackers or the clinking of metal. Due to these fears, he's probably not a good hunting dog, though he does very much enjoy the outdoors. He does not like lights being pointed at him, and he's also afraid of cameras, which makes getting a good picture difficult. He also has a tendency to run when off the leash, though he does return after a time. This has made it hard for us to have Kirby, as our large back yard is unfenced. He also has a tendency to want to climb up on furniture. Kirby is extremely fast, maybe the fastest dog I've ever seen. He very much likes to play with other dogs and have them chase him. He also likes chasing balls and other toys, though not much into returning them. He does have a tendency to try to eat his toys, so it's important to keep an eye on what he has access to. He is very good with people, but he also will bark fiercely when the doorbell rings, so he has made a good watchdog. We have never seen him display aggressive behavior toward people, but he has done a good job recently of being more assertive when playing with other dogs. Kirby would do well with a home that has ample fenced-in running areas. He is a social dog, but he does not seem to enjoy playing with dogs who are overly aggressive or territorial. If challenged, he will simply move away from the other dog to a place of safety. He also likes long walks on the leash, and does well when meeting other dogs. Kirby has been healthy during the time we've had him. His vaccinations are up to date. He needs regular nail trimming. He's a good eater, and likes the occasional dog treat. Please contact for more info or pictures. (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Dillon is a sweet boy, enthusiastic, energetic, fun Jack personality, loves to run, play with toys but will also cuddle up and snuggle with you under a fleece blanket. He was a rescue at about 1 year and has been a family dog for 7 years and is loyal and protective towards his people. He will do best in an adult household as 'an only child.' He should not be around small children. We are so sad to see him go but he needs a new home very soon as he hasn't been able to tolerate his toddler sister and his time at his temporary home has about run out. Would love to talk with anyone interested and answer any questions you may have about this ... (Read More)treasured dog. We have many dog supplies, toys, bed, etc that would come with him. (Less)

    Rex is a great family dog, he currently lives with six children, two male brother labs (unrelated) and two male cats. He is loving, very smart and kennel trained. He loves to be walked but will need a little help with socialization. He is only kenneled at night when it's bed time and when we leave the house. He needs a good home due to the fact that I will be traveling due to a title change at work.

    Bernie is happiest on the farm,but I'm forced to move to Mpls and am finding it quite difficult to find housing that will accept him, and I think he would be miserable in an apt alone while I'm working. He's typical in his reaction to people... Grumpy unless he initiates the contact. Yet he can be especially sweet at times. Sad reality, but I really need to find him a new home. Thanks

However, he is protective of our house and has bitten visitors over time. He should not be with young children. Elderly parents requiring in house home therapy have moved in with us. It is too difficult for us to manage elder care and admit specialists who come in to provide therapy.

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-27-00089Spike (male)

German Shorthaired Pointer    Age: Young Adult


    Hi, I'm Spike and you can call me Spikey, Spikemeister, or my personal favorite, Captain Love Muffin! There's nothing spikey about me%BD'%BD| I'm as sweet and as snuggly as they come. I'm a loving, gentle, 5-7 year old boy who has a lot of catching up to do in the companionship department. I'm exceptionally good with kids of all ages. I'm good with other dogs too but I don't mind using my voice when they get too close to my face. I am working on some issues with separation anxiety, recovering from my 'nooooodering', and getting some much-needed dental work so I'm not quite ready for adoption yet. It won't be long, though, so if you're ... (Read More)ready for some sweetie-boy love please contact GPPR for an adoption application. I would do best in a home where I can be around my people all the time. I ride like a champ in the car and want to go with you everywhere you go and be with you all the time. Really%BD'%BD| all the time. Did I mention all the time? I spent a lot of years being alone and I desperately want to make up for that lonely start in life. I would prefer to not be an only-dog%BD'%BD| going solo is hard for me and I'll be more than happy to tell your whole neighborhood with my beautiful baritone voice if you make me stay by myself. I'm learning to sit and lay down. I like squeaky toys, Pup-peroni treats, and wiggling around on my back (but mostly I just like curling up beside you). I am not an off-leash dog%BD'%BD| I'll need some kind of fencing or tie-out system to keep me safe at home. Do you need a Captain Love Muffin in your life? If so, you'll love my sweet-little-self and I already love you more than you'll ever know. I am being fostered near Minneapolis, MN. For German Shorthaired Pointers: GPPR covers the states of Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota For English Pointers: GPPR will adopt within the Midwestern States where we have volunteers located. Please be sure to ask if your state is included. (Less)

Weimaraner    Age: Senior

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

    Porter is a loving affectionate boy. He is wonderful with our kids. We are not home enough for him, and he gets seperation anxiety. He has a strong prey instinct and does not do well with cats. Therefore he does need some type of containment, I found that invisible fencing works best. He does not do well confined in a kennel/room, etc. He is his best when he is left out (with no garbage that he can get in to :). Ideally I would like to find him a home where there is someone home all of the time, and some type of fencing is a must. He would be wonderful for someone looking for a companion. He loves to snuggle on the couch. He is not ... (Read More)a hyper dog in the house, but needs exercise. He is happy just laying by your feet and does not pester for attention. I love Porter with all my heart so if I don't find a suitable home, he will stay with us. I almost forgot he is hard of hearing, but I would not consider that a health issue. We hardly notice, as he is able to follow hand signals. (Less)

She is a coon hound/pointer mix, just under 1yr, and around 55#. Maggie loves approval from her people - she really wants to know she is a good doggie. She is looking for a patient and forgiving home that will work thru 55# puppy-ness! She's learning to sit before she eats, to walk nicely on a leash and that her mouth doesn't belong on anything but a bone. She's very good in her kennel and walks right in with direction. She will bark in her kennel and being she has hound in ... (Read More)her, it's a loud bark, but she's learning to be quiet when directed. Maggie is a lil much for cats but is super, duper with small, playful dogs! She'll play all day long.

If you'd like a big goof ball that you can romp and play with, please contact Angel of Hope for more information. Please like, share, and comment so Maggie can be with her new forever family soon.

Molly is a sweet dog who loves to snuggle and be with people all the time. She has allergies and some age-related clouding in her eyes. Because she loves people so much she gets slightly anxious about being left, but she does great in a crate and isn't destructive or harmful to herself because of it. She will be so happy in a loving home with a family looking for lots of snuggles and labrador kisses.

Rescue Me ID: 14-04-21-00176Rocco (male)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I am looking for a new home for my American Bulldog mix, Rocco. Rocco is a sweetheart, but his heart beats for being outside, running, and chasing squirrels or bunnies. I live in the city and take him for a bike ride and walk every day, but he needs more freedom and exercise than what I can provide. I recently moved back in with my parents who have a dog and 2 cats. Their dog and Rocco do not get along due to jealousy from their dog initially and now Rocco is overly defensive towards him. Also, Rocco cannot be loose in my parent's house because he wants to chase the 2 cats. This is a very hard decision for me as I love him to death, but it ... (Read More)is not fair to him to be inside so much when he really is an outside dog. I adopted Rocco from the Humane Society in 09/2013. He was very calm and laid back when I initially got him so I thought he would be the perfect fit for my lifestyle, but he was sick with kennel cough and once he recovered from that he showed his true spunky, energetic self. He is hilarious and is a bull in a china shop. He loves to cuddle and could win an award for his nighttime snuggling ability. He has only been loose to play with one other dog who was a female boxer mix. They loved each other and played great. The only other experience with another dog is with my family's dog who did not like Rocco coming into his territory. I would not recommend bringing Rocco into a household with cats, smaller dogs (he does not know his own strength), or male dogs (possibly a dominance issue, but this is just an assumption). I would also not recommend a home with small children as Rocco is very powerful and loves people. He would never harm a child and with proper training to control his jumping I am sure he could be with children. We have been working on his jumping when meeting new people, but does not know his own strength and doesn't listen consistently to the down command. I will also only consider giving him to a new home with a yard and plenty of room for him to run. Adoption fee is to make sure the inquiry is serious. If interested please e-mail me to set up a meet and greet. (Less)

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