Mastiff Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Jordyn is very 'Puppy-ish' high energy, loving and playful! We have a large fenced yard and take her on multiple walks per day. A couple months back my wife had a stroke and requires 24hr care. I am no longer able to give her the love and care she needs (Jordyn not my wife) so I'm looking for a good home for her. She cannot and will not be caged for more than a couple hours a day, she has no problem being vocal about it! She is a big dog, tall and long, 120lbs in weight. She's a great friend and this breaks my heart but I need help. I have her favorite blanket and lots of toys for her, favorite treats and specifications on food and water. ...

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

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

    Holly is a dark sable Purebred GSD. She is beautiful. She is smart. She loves people, both adults and kids. She is dog aggressive and has attacked a male Beagle very seriously. For this reason I would never leave her with another animal or a child. She needs to be properly trained and socialized with other dogs. I am too afraid to do this with her. I want her to go to someone that is good with training German Shepherds. I feel strongly that Holly will attack another dog if given the chance; gets out of the house, yard, etc.. I am hoping there is someone out there that has faith in training her.

Lab Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis 

    This adult male showed up in our yard on 10/26. He's a very nice male lab mix and has been very friendly toward my fianc̩, myself and our female German short hair. We nicknamed him Pops and had him placed at a local kennel in hopes that he would find his owners. Pops was never claimed and we decided to take him in for awhile as he was likely going to be euthanized within days due to his age. Pops has a limp and likely some arthritis in his hind legs. We would like to keep Pops, but his older age doesn't suit him well for an outdoor environment and it's clear he is used to being indoors. While we have not had him around children, I can't ...

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

    Bella is the most loving and affectionate dog I've ever met. She loves kids, will play with even Teacup size dogs and not hurt them, and let's our cats literally walk on her. She is a very special dog. But she must have a place where she can run. We moved to town and have a fence but she just jumps over it. She is an expert at escaping, and we hate tieing dogs up, but she even finds a way to get off a tether. She is a 50lb tank but sweet and gentle. She will be free to a rescue group, any individual will need to pay a fee and have a home inspection and interview. At this point we are giving her a new home because she is being picked-up by ... (Read More)the police and it's very expensive. But we worry more about her being hit by a car or picked-up by the wrong person. Please help Bella. (Less)

    Awe sweet Daisy was saved from the shelter after she was too shy and fearful to be placed on the adoption floor. She perked right up with the presence of another dog in her foster home and they immediately began playing. This gal is only 9 months old and has spent the majority of her short life in the shelter so will need a patient family who will give her time to trust and come out of shell which she began doing in her foster home in just a few days with each day getting better and better! She's doing a remarkable job so far and she is seriously just the sweetest, most gentle little girl. Cats unknown. Has done awesome with the small child ...

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Brandi is a beautiful loving female American Pitbull. We rescued her nearly a year ago hoping that she would fit in with our other dogs. At first Brandi was ok, but over the last 4 months or so, it seems that Brandi cannot be living in a multi dog family. Although its not all the time, she has attacked our other two older dogs and caused wounds to them. Brandi would be fabulous in an only dog situation. She loves cuddles, loves to run with you and loves to be around her humans. Brandi cannot be crated at all as she has issues after being crated 24/7 by her previous owner. It breaks my heart to have to find her a new home, but I have to ... (Read More)protect my other dogs too. Do you have a space in your heart for this gorgeous girl? (Less)

    aisy was a stray found in St Paul, and brought to the St Paul AHS . She was actually a dog known to the AHS community outreach person. Daisy had a microchip, but sadly was not reclaimed by her family. She was living with children, no cats, and she does seem very excited by the sight of small animals, but her attention can be redirected . She is particularly easy to walk when using a Gentle Leader, and is becoming a much calmer dog than when we first got her. She's very responsive to the training sessions at Happy Tails on Monday nights and is currently successful in her day care play groups. She's going to be the love of someone's life soon, ...

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!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Low-Cost Minnesota 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 can hear much lower frequencies than humans, over twice as high as humans, and about four times as far as humans.
