Rescue Me ID: 16-05-02-00475Ruby (female)

Redbone Coonhound    Age: Puppy

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

    Purebred unregistered female Redbone Coonhound looking for forever home. Born 6/2/15 and has been spayed. She needs owners who can work with her / train her and she would do best in a home without cats as her hunting instincts seem to be high. We have been fostering Ruby as her original owners were not able to keep her. She is very sweet, but has not had any formal training and has spent most of her life tied outside. Unfortunately, we are unable to keep her because we have indoor/ outdoor cats and don't have the time to do justice to the attention she needs and deserves. She would make a great hunting dog, especially for a new owner ... (Read More)who has previous experience with Redbone Coonhounds. Serious inquires only, please. A modest re-homing fee will apply, but is negotiable to the right home. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Sadie is a 9 month old German Shepherd mix recently pulled from the Humane Society after she was too terrified to be placed on the adoption floor. She would sit in the back corner of her kennel and just shake and not interact. Within 30 minutes of being in her foster home she began to show us her personality and this brave little girl emerged shocking and impressing us at the same time. The second she saw her fur foster sister, a black lab mix female. her eyes lit right up and they immediately began playing drawing Sadie further and further out of her shell. Today she's a happy, spunky, and smart 9 month puppy just as she should be. She ... (Read More)loves other dogs, does great with kids, is a little hesitant around adult strangers still but give her a few minutes and she'll be all yours. Sadie is working on potty training, currently being taught to ring a bell to go out, kennel trained, and very smart. She would LOVE a forever family with another dog so she can have a sister or brother of her own. She has not met a cat but young enough that acclimation attainable. If you're looking for a German Shepherd or mix, Sadie would love to meet you. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-30-00108Josie (female)

Poodle Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    We got Josie when she was a puppy from a local breeder. At that time we did not have any kids, now we have two small children. We have decided to place her in another home because we don't feel that we are the best fit for her any longer with out attention mainly on the kids and rarely on her. She's a good dog and LOVES people. We have a cat and they get along very well and 'play' together. Our small children play with Josie and she does fairly well with it but growls if the kids get too aggressive but she never bites. She will be 4 years old around summer/fall. She's in good health and has never had any medical issues. She is a red poodle ... (Read More)and cavalier king charles spaniel mix. Currently weighs about 16-18 pounds. She does not shed and we get her groomed ever other month and she's cute with short or long hair :) We never fully trained her which means she knows sit, stay and come but she obeys about 50% of the time. She is potty trained and rings a bell when she needs to go out but sometimes she will pee in the house if you don't let her out in time. I'm sure with proper training she will obey 100% and not have any accidents. She is eager to satisfy so I think she would learn quickly. When we leave the house (and she stays home) she gets anxious so she whines, she may have some separation anxiety. Currently she is in a kennel during the work day (7am-5pm) and then she is out with us the rest of the night and sleeps in our bed. We leave food and water out for her at all times so she is not fed at specific times. She will beg for human food and tries to grab it when you're not looking. All of these things I'm sure can be corrected with the proper training. We hope to place her with someone who is committed to keeping her forever. We feel horrible that we won't be those people to her and want to make sure she doesn't keep getting passed around. (Less)

Nova Scotia Duck Toller    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Mari is an elderly 11 year old Nova Scotia Duck Toller. We have had her since she was a puppy. She is pretty high strung, but ok to have around kids (she doesn't pay them any attention). She has a super sweet face and demeanor, but she's having anxiety issues. Both my wife and I work and we have two young kids. We can't get home to let her out during the day and she is having separation issues. We have been working with a vet and have tried meds and tests. She's healthy, but the meds aren't working. We have to find her a new home. She isn't happy and neither are we. She has been a part of our family for 11 years, but it is now time to ...

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    My 4 year old German Shepherd Roary is a beautiful female Czech line working GSD. She is spayed and up to date on shots. She is the most loyal, protective, loving, sweetheart of a dog that I have ever met. Being a working line GSD, she needs constant companionship and attention. I enrolled her in a 2 month training/boarding facility last fall where she received 3 training sessions a day with a professional dog handler. At the boarding facility, she was known as 'mother goose' as she got along well with all the other dogs and was used to keep them in line. She is feisty, as working lines are known to be, but she did not show any signs of ... (Read More)serious aggression to the other dogs. It is just something going on between her and the other dogs in our home, they just do not get along anymore. Roary needs a home where she will have human companionship for the majority of the day. She does well with men who have a lot of energy and ambition. She is very good at fetch and can play for hours. She is extremely eager to please and is always waiting for the next command. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Chelsea is a sweet and loving girl who absolutely adores people. Her favorite thing to do is to snuggle right next to you. Chelsea has the cutest button nose and by FAR the best smile I have ever seen on a dog. She even lets out little snores when she sleeps. This girl is guaranteed to make you smile all the time. She prefers to have her humans all to herself so a home without other animals would be ideal for her. She has not been around small children. If you're looking for a beautiful, smart, and loyal life long companion, Chelsea is definitely your girl!

Boxer Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    Tig is a 2yr old boxer/lab mix (our guess). He's got very long and lanky legs so possibly some Great Dane in but in miniature size. Whatever he is, he's got some gorgeous eyes. At 57lbs, he could stand to gain a few pounds which he is happily doing since coming to rescue. Tig is so sweet and adjusted super fast to his new foster home. He is living with kids ranging from under 1yr to 12 and has been awesome. He loves his bones, is friendly upon introduction, and loves to run around and play in the yard. He sits at the door when he needs to be let out and while he's kennel trained, it's not really necessary. Tig is a polite house guest :) It ... (Read More)was clear he had not ever met a cat when introduced so it is a work in progress and will continue to be as such in an adoptive home so because of an unknown outcome, we are saying no cats for Mr. Tig. Sorry.... Dogs are ok though. Tig has been an easy and well adjusted foster who would make a great addition to any family. (Less)

She caught my hand in her recent scuffle with our male dog. She is in isolation and all dogs at this time are on a scheduled rotation. Please I know she is amazing and she was a self rescue....she needs the benefit of the doubt and someone to see how great she is! (Less)

Poodle Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed 

    Violet is the sweetest dog in the world. She is not spayed. She is not house trained but wouldn't take much to get it done. She would be fabulous for a quiet retired couple who wants a very sweet, demure and loving QUIET dog. Violet is NON-SHEDDING. She would be okay for a family but is submissive and in the wrong hands could be abused. She needs a loving home and with treats and time, she will be the best dog for a quiet person/couple.

Rescue Me ID: 16-03-28-00141Daisy (female)

Beagle    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Daisy is a wonderful dog with a lot of energy. When we got her a year ago, we did not realize that she would need daily exercise to get her energy out. She is fantastic with our 3 yr old and our 5 yr old Boston Terrier. She needs a home that can give her the time and space to run outside. She does chew (being a puppy) we just make sure to have plenty of chew toys and has some accidents in the house (about 95% house trained). She stays in her cage from 8-5 without accidents. Daisy would thrive in an area with a fenced in yard or with someone that could walk her daily. We just don't have time.

Beagle Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Meet Rusty...Rusty and I met at Heartland Animal Rescue in Hutchinson in December. He stole my heart. Having had a rough life with much neglect and being fearful of an abusive male owner, he has learned during the past three months to build a bond and once again, begin to trust. He has a willing spirit to learn and loves much. I feel Rusty needs added to his life another dog to share his life with. He is very much wishing walks and being outdoors, socializing and just being himself. Rusty is a very loving animal and he needs the companionship of possibly a woman owner, as he has learned to bond with me. He has trust issues with ... (Read More)males which is quite understandable. He is nonaggressive, but is discovering he does not need to cower any longer. He will be loved and I have made that promise to him. What I need from his potential new adoptive mother, is a warm, loving home. Physically, I have had medical issues arise that are needing attention and he is needing more physical activity than I am able to give. Please, if you think Rusty and you are a good match, contact me. We would both like to meet you and see if there is a fit. (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!

    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. 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.
