German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Eddie is a big gentle guy who had a rough life. He Loves cuddling and prefers to sleep at the foot of the bed. He is generally not trusting of strangers and can be startled by loud noises which is why I say no small kids. Older kids, he'd be fine. This is a super sweet family dog, about 7 years old, loves long walks, and treats. Housebroken and basic obedience. No kennel needed. This dog will not even chew his toys up. E-mail me for more info if you may be Ed's perfect home.

Rescue Me ID: 17-12-05-00247Ruby (female)

Rottweiler    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    My wife and I are expecting our first child in a few weeks and don't feel that Ruby will respond well to that. She has often shown aggressive behavior toward small children or small animals. From 8 weeks old until 2 years she bit several people, including my wife and myself. However, she has not bitten anyone in 3 years. She can be quite stubborn and wont listen to most people. She does very well with me though. She is house broken, will sit, stay, lay down and get in her pen when told to. She has never been hit or abused in any way. She has a very strange personality and is often unsure and anxious. She DOES NOT like any type of ... (Read More)surprise or change. She does not like to be told 'no' but will listen. It seemed obvious that the breeder didn't know much about dogs in general. The dog's mother appeared to have been abused and the father was so unstable that it had to be isolated. My vet and a couple trainers said that the dog should be euthanized because of the aggressive behavior early on, however I wanted to give her a chance. She has come much farther than the 'experts' said she would. If it was just me, there would be no issue, but a baby in the house with this dog just isn't going to work. She likes to be close and snuggle to a fault. She ends up invading peoples space and makes them uncomfortable. She sits on peoples feet and plops her head on their laps expecting to be petted which is uncomfortable for many people. Usually she likes everyone she meets. She loves to run around a play keep away with sticks. She enjoys walks and does well on the leash, as long as she doesn't see little kids, small animals or new things. Roller bladers, bikers, skateboarders, cross country skiers and the like make her uneasy and she kicks into fight or flight quickly. She may lunge out and bark visciously but has never bit a stranger. Often she doesn't seem at all interested in pleasing people and doesn't care if she is called a good dog or bad dog. In the right setting with the right person, she would be a great dog. She needs structure, boundaries and a strong dog person that will be a leader for her. (Less)

    Bella is a very sweet and affectionate girl, 50% Vizsla and 50% American Stafford-shire Terrier (litter DNA tested), 2 years old. She is great with my 11yr old daughter and our two cats. She becomes very passive with cats if they stand up to her once in a while. She does not get along with our other dog, her mother. That is why we are re-homing her. She needs to be in a house where she is the only dog, and with people that understand how to take new situations slow with her. She has completed obedience training with flying colors and is trained on the invisible fence system, she she crate and house trained. She just wants to please her ... (Read More)people. This truly breaks our heart. We have tried this for almost a year - mama and daughter doggies just dont get along - two alpha females. In her first house we rescued her from, they kenneled her 20h a day and underfed her so she was treat motivated. She came to us with resource guarding issues and low social skills. We have worked very hard on both and she has come such a long way. She still shows anxiety with new people and new situations and needs to be worked into new situations slow. We currently have her in socialization classes 1-2x a week. She also air bites when excited, harmless but can intimidate some people. Bella is such a sweet, obedient, very snuggly, people person doggie; she is very healthy and has no health issues. (Less)

Doberman Pinscher Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hopi here! I am 1-3 years old, spayed female and up to date on my vet cares! My foster families (I have two that love me dearly!) tell me that I am a smart, busy, sensitive, velcro girl. I love to play fetch and can run super-fast, but am always checking in to make sure my people are still nearby. I can be very 'puppy-like' even though I have already been a mother, and would love to have an active family willing to take me to obedience training to see my ability and excitement to learn new things. I would love a human to go on long jogs, or even short walks every day. Inside the house, I am a 'collector', some might call it nesting, and I ... (Read More)love to collect things that remind me of my foster family, such as clothes, shoes and picture frames and bring them to my bed. I don't chew on them, just pile them up and keep them safe! At night, I sleep in my crate with the door open and I don't come out until my foster dad gets up in the morning. I am a velcro girl and think I am still small enough to sit on your lap! I have not had an easy life. I most likely lived outdoors, so indoor stuff takes a little getting use to! Sometimes a girl just needs a little encouragement and support. If you will love me unconditionally; play with me; be encouraging and supportive and bring me to school so I can learn lots of stuff - I would love to meet you. I am a diamond in the rough. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-11-26-00016Prada (female)

Doberman Pinscher    Age: Puppy

Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Prada is between one and two years old with a very goofy, sweet, loving personality. This docked and cropped beauty has already had a litter of puppies and sadly, sold multiple times by humans in her life. Thankfully her last home surrendered her to rescue and we promise her she will never be bounced around again. Prada wants a home with a fenced yard and no young children. She would do well with a passive older dog as she really doesn't care to interact with other canines, but is tolerant as long as they leave her alone. She loves to play with her toys and run like the wind with her goofy 'scoot' butt run! Prado loves playing ball with her ... (Read More)humans but if your not into playing ball, she would be just as content following you around, even into the bathroom! Prada is super smart, high energy, easy to train and exceptionally willing to learn new things. She knows sit, down, get it, ball, and loves working for food! She would flourish with adults to worship in her life as she loves, loves, loves her people! She would love to find an active master who is a jogger, or willing to help her burn off her gorgeous energy. This girl would love a job! Prada is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, and micro-chipped. Prada is hypothyroid (did you know 20% of all Dobermans are hypothyroid) and will require a very inexpensive thyroid replacement medication to be given daily. Prada is an absolute gorgeous girl with great potential to make a difference in someone's life, as she will be a very faithful and forever, lifelong companion!

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!
