Rescue Me ID: 15-08-25-00333Harold (male)

Bichon Frise    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,
 Fearful/Anxious 

    UPDATE: Harold was taken by a wonderful lady and her Mother three days ago on Weds Sept 26th. The daughter works and 83 year old Mom stays home. Mom doesn't think she can take care of him as she feels she is too slow to let him out when he goes to door; then he poops on the floor. I feel even more horrible at this point; for these sweet women and poor Harold. He has had so much change and chaos; I am now making it worse. I got another email from a wonderful woman in NYC. She gave me link to Bicho Rescue. But the dogs can not be agressive. Well, they recently tried to put a diaper on him; which I have never done before in my life and hit ... (Read More)bit the Mom. He seems to attach to the daughter, but she has to work like me. He has never broke skin in seven years with me. I have seen him show his teeth when scared. He does so much better with petting and hands while on a leash. I think he may not have good eye sight and I will pay to have his eyes checked or whatever necessary to help him and a new owner. They are going to keep him; as I just landed in Chicago to start five days of flying. I am grateful they are helping me this much. If anyone knows of people who foster troubled Bichon's or small dogs; could you pls call/text/email me. I am working and if I don't respond immediately I will ASAP. Background: I adopted Harold from a dog rescue in Scottsdale AZ in 2009 for my ex-husband. He was on the E-list in Mesa as the shelter staff, myself, and everyone who has ever come into contact with him agree that he clearly was abused prior to my adoption. I love this dog so much and devoted the past 7 years of my life to taking care of this sweet, loving dog. He is not aggressive. He is just scared and untrusting; but I can honestly say he has improved more than I could ever describe with words. Shortly after adopting him, I got a divorce. This is where my plight began with the love of my life; Harold. I am a flights attendant for Southwest Airlines and had to begin having ANYONE and EVERYONE I could find to help watch him. He NEEDS stability. Bc of my job and my living situation; I just can not physically provide a normal, stable, comforting, unchanging home environment anymore. It absolutely breaks my heart that I am even posting him for adoption. I am literally so distraught that I don't know how I will live without him. BUT, Harold is such a special dog and he DESERVES better than what I am physical able to give him due to the amount of travel I have to do in order to make money. I can not depend on others to care for him while I am gone 6 days at a time. It is so stressful for the both of us. He just needs someone is has ROUTINE in their daily life. I know he can thrive in an environment where he KNOWS what to expect and he is WANTED. Fast forward to present day, I remarried a person who doesn't Harold, as MANY people don't, it is difficult for him and others to connect with him as he takes so much time to gain trust with Humans. He has already been lost out in the country as he has to stay in garage when I am traveling. He doesn't understand how come he is not in bed with me every night. He is now crate trained and will sleep in crate all night. I think he is stressed with living here bc he will pee outside and come inside and pee again immediately after. I have spent thousands of dollars on dog care and kennels. I live in a small town; there just aren't facilities here for me to even pay hundreds of dollars to home him while I travel. He loves to sleep, relax, go for walks, great on leash, not aggressive with other dogs. But he would be in his best form with no other competition for attention. He is such a good dog. That is why I have literally done absolutely everything in my power to keep out of harms way. I am willing to fly him anywhere and continue to help with him in anyway possible. I am DESPERATE at this point because I know if he doesn't find the right owner; he will end up in the pound and possibly put down bc he takes a bit to connect with people. He didn't take anytime to connect with me; that why I feel so responsible Harold. If anyone knows of someone who understands Bichon's and is looking for a wonderful, unconditionally loving friend please contact me. I am so sad; but I have to do something better for him. Thank you.

Rescue Me ID: 15-08-18-00348Harley (female)

Beagle    Age: Senior

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

    I am a very loving beagle. My current owner's daughter rescued me from the Humane Society when I was 6 months old. I was a bit skittish at that time. She was a nurse and too busy so at 2 years old, I went with her folks that had a 10 year old beagle. We had a great life together until he passed at 15 years old....5 years ago. From then on, a lot of changes have happened in the household. I need a home that loves beagles and has time to spend with me. I love walks and spending time with others. My current owner would keep me but feels it would be better for me to be with some that can spend time with as my owner is busy working and ...

Rescue Me ID: 15-06-08-00612LeeLoo (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    This is a dynamic duo that MUST remain together. They are extremely bonded. Both are housetrained and healthy, active and happy mutts. Due to failing health in the household, we are unable to properly keep up with their training; they are VERY well-socialized. They do quite well with cats, other dogs and children. They are house-dogs only - no outside chains, no being left alone in kennels or runs. They will come with an indoor kennel (Spencer is well-trained with it; LeeLoo likes to 'steal' it when Spencer isn't using it) as well as any remaining Iam's Smart Puppy formula we have at the time of their adoption, their bowls, toys and ... (Read More)collars and leashes. They cannot be left outside unattended for long periods as they are both diggers, and both love to drag logs from the woodpile to spread all over their play space. They DO bark but not to excess and are not at all aggressive. They are very much loved, which is why we're looking to re-home them. We don't feel as though we're the best possible home for them any longer. LeeLoo was going to be abandoned by her owners so we took her in. She appears to be a shepherd cross; we were told she was born in late May of 2014. She is spayed and current on shots except for her DHLPP/Corona booster. This dog is hands-down one of the most intelligent I've ever known - she picks up on training extremely quickly. She loves to play and will chase a laser pointer until she is exhausted. Snuggling and kisses are a top priority for her and she's pretty sure she's a lapdog. We believe she would thrive as a working dog. We are asking for a vet reference, at least three personal references and a donation of $100 to Humane Society of the Black Hills. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-06-08-00609Spencer Reid (male)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This is a dynamic duo that MUST remain together. They are extremely bonded. Both are housetrained and healthy, active and happy mutts.

They DO bark but not to excess and are not at all aggressive. They are very much loved, which is why we're looking to re-home them. We don't feel as though we're the best possible home for them any longer. A lab cross, Spencer Reid is named after our favorite Criminal Minds character because he's smart, goofy and loveable. Adopted through HSBH, his DOB is listed as 24 Dec 2013 but no one knows for sure as he was found as a stray, very malnourished, covered with red (puppy) mange and with a badly damaged right rear leg. He had to have an amputation but Spencer has NO idea he's different - he's fast and agile. All his shots are current, he's neutered (although we think he may have cryptorchidism because he still gets erections and air-humps a bit) and has a microchip with a lifetime membership with Petkey.org. He loves his Nylabone, chasing a laser pointer and lives for snuggles. He is a very handsome fellow who loves chicken strips dog treats more than just about anything. He would do well as a companion dog and would probably like to work a little, too, as he trains very easily. He currently is due his yearly vaccinations. We are asking for a vet reference, at least three personal references and a donation of $100 to Humane Society of the Black Hills. (Less)

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