Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Tip Tip will be available soon for adoption. He is a 5 year old pomeranian that had all of his shots up to last year. He is a loving pet that needs special attention and a loving home. His current owner inherited him from her Uncle who is no longer here with us. He is in a stable home but the current owner cannot care for him in the future due to my mom's medical matters. He loves the outdoors and to plays well with other animals. Tip Tip has been around small children but I would suggest that they do not play with him. He loves to kiss on them and gets very excited around them but may feel cornered and feel threatened.

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Duckie came to us last year after she gave birth to some incredible puppies. Duckie had been living feral and was taken to a rural shelter where she curled up inside a plastic doghouse in subzero temperatures - waiting for her pups to be born - and to die. We got her to the vet - - just in time. Duckie has ongoing skin issues due to the neglect she has suffered - but if ever a dog deserves a good home - Duckie is that dog. She is initially very shy. She will be a 'project' dog for anyone who adopts her. Please consider giving this poor dog a chance at a normal life so she can see just how good it can be to be a dog. She is totally ...

    Maebe was a stray that was taken in,spayed and vaccinated and needs a fur-ever home! She is full of energy and great with kids and adults.

She is currently staying with a couple who didn't plan on having we and are unable to care for her long term due to disabilities. She is very affectionate and needs lots of room to run. She is crate trained and house broken.

Mountain Cur Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Maia (pronounced Mi-ya) is a very submissive female mix-breed dog in need of a forever home. I am no longer able to take care of her financially and we are being forced to move soon and may have no place to go. Although she is good with other dogs once she gets to know them, proper introductions need to be made first. She is afraid of men although with a little time she will warm up to them. She would most likely prefer a home that is calm and peaceful and probably wouldn't do well with small children. While she has no known health issues, she does have an allergy to corn and needs a diet without it. I currently feed her the Rachel Ray 'Just ... (Read More)Six' and she does very well on it. Won't you please consider opening your home and heart to this wonderful girl? (Less)

    Chloe is a very sweet 6-yr old female spayed Shih Tzu who is in need of a forever home. Our financial situation does not allow us to keep her and we will be forced to move soon and may have no place to go. She is good with older children but she has not been assessed around young children although to be honest, I don't think she would do very well with young children. Won't you please consider opening your home and heart to this wonderful girl?

Animal ID: RhodaMaxMax (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Needs to be Neutered 

    My email address is rjowens102@msn.com.. His name is Max. I got him from a family that used to live by us who kept him on a short chain, He would get loose often and come stay for days with me in my yard. After they moved away, they decided they didnt want him anymore so I took him. I have a fenced in yard and had him since March. He learned he can jump my fence, and now he has to be kept on a chain here as well. He is such a good playful dog. He is just so big that he knocks down small kids, although he absolutely loves kids and loves to play. IF another dog growls at him he just lays down and rolls over. As for shots, they said he had ... (Read More)shots last summer. Not sure where. He is not neutered. Not sure of his breed. He has very thick coat of hair and he sheds a great deal. He loves to sit in your lap and makes a wonderful pet for children he will play with any toy, jump on trampoline.He just needs to be able to run and play. And unfortunately I cannot provide him with that now. I will send some pics (Less)

He LOVES people, loves attention, and would love a person of his own to snuggle with during the winter days ahead (and for the rest of the days of his life).

Siberian Husky Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    This is a half Husky, half wolf dog. It is my understanding that there are papers verifying this. She is house trained, but it has been a long time since she has been in a house. She's obedient, but very territorial. She's actually a great dog and would make a great companion for someone who knows how to establish themselves as the alpha. She is not to be trusted around small children. She views anything her size or smaller as a threat. This is really her only downside. If you don't have kids, then this will make you a very loving and loyal dog. I have a couple more pictures I can email upon request.

Rescue Me ID: 14-11-06-00313Bella (female)

Redbone Coonhound    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Bella is an approximate 16 to 18 month old Redbone Coonhound (unsure if purebred, but looks and acts like it), and we do have Vet papers for her, but my daughter needs to find them. My daughter and grandson currently live with me. She rescued Bella from an abusive home as a pet for my four year old grandson. However, he is a very active and rough little boy, who is far too rough with Bella. We've caught him hitting her a couple times, and although we teach him kindness to her, he is just a rough little boy. She never reacts negatively to him though. He doesn't play with our dog rough, because Trey (our Jack Russell) would bite him. Although ... (Read More)he's gotten much better, I still have concerns of him hurting Bella. They are also moving from my home and will most likely not be able to take Bella (nor do I want them to). My grandson isn't mature enough to interact with her yet. I am disabled, have limited income, have a dog and cat already, and cannot afford to keep her. She eats more than our Jack Russell. Unfortunately my daughter rescued her from a very abusive home, so she needs a loving home. Her owner crated her all day/night while working and sleeping, and apparently didn't feed her well, as her ribs were showing when we got her. I fear she was physically and emotionally abusive to her also, as Bella cowers when voices are raised. I fight with myself every day wanting to keep her, because she is the sweetest dog I have ever seen. She loves attention, loves sleeping with us, is very curious (as you'll see on the video) as is typical of the Redbone Coonhound, and is just a loving and gentle dog who wants to be loved. However, I don't have a fenced yard and have limited income, not affording me additional Vet bills and feel it selfish of me to keep her knowing she deserves a better atmosphere, so am posting this today. Bella's downsides are few, but are: she is mostly potty trained, but has an occasional accident if not let out in time, so if she had access to a yard, that would not be a problem. When keeping her in my bedroom at night, which she loves, she never has accidents. It's mostly when she's not in our room at night she has accidents or if we aren't home for awhile and she isn't taken out in time. Also, still a puppy, she obviously likes chewing things, so keeping shoes and other things out of her range is important. She plays with toys now, but literally didn't know how to catch a ball when we got her, which is sad in itself. She tries running out the door every chance she gets, which is another reason she needs a home with a fenced yard. She is a natural hunter and needs to explore. She doesn't get as much outdoor time as she deserves in our home. Finally, because the first owner apparently starved this beautiful girl, she is always trying to eat. She stands over me the entire time I'm preparing any type of food or cooking and sits beside us waiting for something to drop. She will also grab food from the table/counter if the opportunity prevents, but we've learned our lesson with that. I truly believe she thinks she's starving. I do give in to her at times, which I know doesn't help, but when her big eyes are staring at me, it's kind of difficult not to. Otherwise, she is simply the most beautiful, lovable, playful, and gentle companion I've seen. She gets along with Trey (our Jack Russell) perfectly. They rump and play together constantly. Trey doesn't need as much outdoor time, as we rescued him from a shelter, and he apparently was not medicated by his prior owner who kept him outdoors in weeds, so had Lyme's Disease when we adopted him. His joints and body are not up to as much as Bella's body is, but Bella has been extremely good for Trey too, which concerns me when she leaves. We also have a cat, who has a mind of her own, and although Bella likes to chase after her a little (in her blood) she only does so when our cat comes in the door for a second and that's it. She really just wants to play, but our cat won't have it. So, as I finish this I sit here crying, knowing I'm going to be losing our beautiful Bella. My heart is telling me to keep her, but my intellect tells me she deserves a better home where she has a place to roam outdoors, kids who are gentle with her, and owners who can financially afford to care for her as she deserves. God knows I wish I could give her all those things, but I cannot at this time. I'm hoping someone with children will adopt Bella, as she needs them as much as they will need her. Even with my grandson being so rough with her, she is so loyal to him, she follows him around everywhere he goes, as if my grandson belongs to her. Please help me give this girl a good home where I'll know she will have a great life. Thank you! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-17-00470Bella (female)

Boxer    Age: Young Adult

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

    Friendly, very good with children and adults. Previously was kept on chain but has been in fenced yard for the last year. Previous owner had mistreated her. She has rebounded extremely well. She loves to play inside and out and loves to snuggle with adults and kids. Her only vice is being over protective of her food. She is a great dog, but I have 5 others and really need to find her a home where she can have more attention and love.

    Roxy is a family dog and companion to a german/lab female mix, 2 indoor cats, and 2 children. She is my trail running companion. Problem is she got out of our fenced in yard and killed the neighbors' cat, so I wouldn't re home her anywhere near cats. We love this dog and circumstances-ie.(neighbor) requires we break up our family unit. I hate to see her euthanized. She is a great dog and listens to commands and is trainable with food and affection. She just has a high chase/catch instinct-

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    1 year old Butter (and littermate, Tipper) became homeless when his owners lost their home to a fire. Not all family pets made it out alive - Butter was lucky - and it is obvious from the records we have that he was very loved. Tipper and Butter get along great, and though we would prefer that they remain together, they would be fine separated (though we think they would enjoy the company of another pet). They are fully vetted, healthy, and we hope they find homes very soon. If you are interested in adopting Butter (and/or Tipper), please submit an application which you can find on our website ...

    This is our Ole Bear. He made it to Mighty Mutt after months of preparation for his arrival. His owner passed away and at Bears age of 6 yrs old he had no where else to go. We here at MMRS decided we couldn't let him down in such a sad and stressful time in his life. He is such a sweetheart. He is still nervous but once he was able to meet some of the other dogs here we got the tail high in the air wagging and a huge bounce back in his step.

Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    this is about Brute When we first met Brute, he was depressed and he was in trouble. He had been taken to the clinic to be euthanized because he had developed some health issues, an expense his owner said he couldn't afford. Brute was humped up in the kennel at the clinic with his head in the corner and his back to everyone. He was so depressed. After that weekend, Brute was taken to a foster home, and he has blossomed. He is running and playing and enjoying both the other dogs and being accepted into a family. His diet doesn't include table scraps and is being carefully monitored, and exercise has been helping him get some excess weight off ... (Read More)so that he doesn't look like a little sausage. His foster mom reports that he is doing extremely well, making a lot of progress, and being a great and a happy dog. Brute is four years old and weighs 15.7 pounds. He is tri-color neutered male with short hair and pointed little ears. Brute takes a thyroid pill morning and evening at this point, and he may always. But he is getting healthier and happier every day. All he needs is someone who will accept him and love him as he is. (Less)

Bluetick Coonhound   


    We found these dogs out in the middle of no where on Sept. 1, 2014. They did not have collars with identification. We were able to bring them home with us. I bathed the dogs in a large wash tub (both just sat down in the tub) and put flea collars on them. The blue tick is a male and the red tick is a female. She was very think when we found them. She already looks much better. I believe they are litter mates...they romp and play and will not let the other one out of sight. I would like for them to go to the same home. I really do not want to keep them, but I do not want them to go to the 'wrong' people. They are super nice dogs. I ... (Read More)believe they are still young dogs. (Less)

We have had her a couple of months and she is just now starting to not be scared of everything. We are trying to puppy pad train her and she has been doing well with it. She needs a home with no children and with someone who can give her the time and training she needs to make her feel like a dog should! She is super sweet and loving! Please call if you are interested because there are more details that I will need to clarify before adopting her!

Plays safely with a small female shiz-tsu, but has been in a scuffle with another male dog over bones. He has not been around children for any length of time, but given his young age and treat/bone aggression I would not feel safe with him around a child.

    Mia needs to be adopted with her pal Ralphy - they are a bonded pair (see Ralphy's posting too please - Rescue Me ID: 13-11-13-00583). I rescued these two senior dogs (Mia a 12 year old pittie mix and Ralphy a 9 year old corgi mix) from a condemned and abandoned home in my neighborhood back in August. The owners fell into hard times and both became addicted to heroin and used their entire basement for the production of marijauna. One owner ended up in jail and the other in the hospital. Mia and Ralphy were left to fend for themselves. Mia is hard of hearing if not entirely deaf. She relies on Ralphy as her 'ears.' She is a soulful girl who ...

She is looking for a safe and warm place to lay her head at night and a family that will love her for the last few years of her life.

(More on that later) I was a shelter rescue. I crave human affection I enjoy being the alpha dog and will challenge a passive dog for food, however if the family dog is a confident well-adjusted dog who offsets my need to dominate, I show no signs of food aggression. I am not food aggressive with humans and love nothing more than to lay at their feet. I do not chase cats, however I am possessive with my humans when they come near. I lost weight after my spay and had an ... (Read More)unrelated abscess on my leg afterward that gave me a little trouble. I am healing now and putting my weight back on. Before I was spayed, I tended to try and mark, but after my spay this issue was not noticed any longer inside my foster home. I am crate trained and will lay at your feet all day for affection. I do fine with older children, but due to my possessive nature, I am best adopted into a home without small children. Basically, I am a bossy diva who loves my people. I stay in my kennel or a fenced yard exceptionally well and I will not try to leave. I get along with other dogs and currently share a run with another dog and we are able to eat in the same run well with food bowls at opposite ends.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in West Virginia
    Dogs can make good pets in West Virginia 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!
