Animal ID: Micro chippedKatie (female)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Katie is a sweet, affectionate, puppy! She was born Sept 9, 2015 to an English Bulldog mom and an American Bulldog dad. When she needed a home at 41/2 mo, we took her. She had had no training up till then. She is potty trained, will sit, and sometimes stay and come. 'No' works most of the time. Her high energy level and puppy interests have been distracting. She gets along well with her older sister (mixed lab rescue-6 yrs old) and is very interested in our cats, but wants to chase anything that moves. She wants to be around her people and gets stressed/mischievous if left home only with our animals. Because of our age and recent health ... (Read More)limitations, we feel Katie would be happier with a forever family that can better provide for her high energy and training needs. We will be sad to say goodbye to such a sweetheart.

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-26-00257Willie (male)

Miniature Pinscher    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

    Willie I a dog that needs someone who is patient and kmows his breed well. While he is a very sweet dog he does have a few issues. I got him a few months back from a lady on Graigslist so I am not sure about his full history. For the most part Willie is a huge cuddler. He loves to lay under the blanket with you. He has gotten along with my cat and with other family dogs. He has gotten along with most everyone. He thinks he is an alpha male. he will try to protect you and his home. He acts aggressive when first meeting someone. Once he sniffs them out and realizes they are not a threat, he calms and is ok with them. He is partially housed ... (Read More)trained but needs to be closely watched or he will go potty in the house. He does have some toy aggression and food aggression. with toys, if you make it clear that the toys is 'yours' but he 'play' with it, he does good. He also has an issue with being scolded. He will lash out if he feels threatened. Ultimately Willie is a sweet boy but he needs a certain kind of attention that I unfortanetly cannot provide for him. I hope someone is willing to give him another chance as that is what I was trying to do. (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

    URGENT!!! Moxie was left behind when his owner went to jail. I've been feeding him, but I'm moving next week. He needs somewhere to go by then! When he was with his owner he was a big baby. He'd sit on your lap and kiss you. He did well around kids, cats and other dogs. He's been neglected now and he just wants attention. I will help however I can. I will drive him or pay first month's food or vet bills. I just want him safe.

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!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Low-Cost South Dakota 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 are red-green colorblind.
