About Evie

Adoption Fee: $400

Meet Evie, a courageous survivor from the heart-wrenching hoarding case in North Carolina where we took in 20 dogs. Alongside her companions, she endured unspeakable hardships before finding her way to us through HSUS. In just a few weeks, these resilient pups have made incredible strides on their journey to recovery.

Like her fellow survivors, Evie is a shy and soft-spoken girl. She's seeking a forever home filled with boundless love and unwavering patience. When faced with stress, her natural response is to freeze, underscoring her need for time and a dedicated owner committed to helping her rebuild trust in humans and the world around her.

Evie's sweetness knows no bounds, and her foster family describes her as one of the easiest dogs they've ever cared for. She thrives in a tranquil environment, making her best suited for a peaceful home without small children, as sudden movements can make her a bit apprehensive, but she has proven to do well loving affection from older quieter kids. Evie adores human attention and revels in the joy of being petted.

She exhibits a preference for the company of women, although she's gradually warming up to her foster dad, even challenging him to spirited games of tug-of-war when playtime strikes. This gentle girl moves at her own pace and is diligently learning the art of leash walking. House training has been a breeze, as she's proven to be a star pupil in this regard.

Evie is deserving of a patient and understanding adoptive family who can appreciate the lasting effects of her past trauma. If you're ready to be the warm and loving presence in Evie's life that she so richly deserves, please consider opening your heart and home to this remarkable survivor. Your love and care will help her continue her healing journey.

At the time you are seeing this post, this dog is still available for adoption. But please know that we may be working on multiple applications already, and any one of them could be approved at any time. Please READ THIS ENTIRE DESCRIPTION and complete an adoption application, if you are interested in any of our animals. Application at www.greendogsunleashed.org If you send an inquiry to ask if the dog is still available, or just tell us you are interested, your inquiry will not be answered. FILL OUT AN APPLICATION. We can do NOTHING without that. No, we cannot tell you if he would be a match for your family without seeing an application. PLEASE KEEP READING for info.

*/*/* PLEASE NOTE: The first communication you will receive after completing an application will be an email response, which will have instructions on how to proceed. Please check your inbox AND spam folders for the next 48 hours, for this email. We will not begin processing an application without the information requested in that email. */*/*

We are happy to consider applicants from out of state on most dogs. Please read the description to see if this dog is an exception. If the applicant is approved to adopt, they MUST be willing to come to our location in Troy, VA, for a meet and greet. If all parties agree that the pup and family are a good fit, they would take the pup home at that time.

For more information about our mission and for an APPLICATION for adoption, please go to www.greendogsunleashed.com.

GDU does ask a minimum adoption fee of $400.00. This does not even come close to covering all expenses created by animals while in rescue. We are funded solely by the angels and volunteers willing to donate time and finances. This minimum fee includes DAPP, rabies if age appropriate,, heartworm test and preventative, if age appropriate, and flea and tick treatment, as well as neutering or spaying, if the animal is medically sound to undergo surgery. In an attempt to avoid tummy upset from a sudden change of food, the foster family may include a small, transitional bag of the food the dog/puppy has been eating. And if the dog/puppy has grown attached to a special item (like a toy or blanket), they may send that along, as well.

*/*/* Young puppies will receive age-appropriate vaccines, and will be spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Adopters may be required to provide additional puppy boosters and at 16 weeks of age, a rabies vaccine. Future annual vaccines, testing and monthly heartworm preventative are REQUIRED, and will be the financial responsibility of the adopter.

*****Due to the sheer number of animals and applications in our program, coupled with a limited number of volunteers, applicants MUST have patience as we process applications.   If you do not hear back from us, the animal may have been adopted.   We strive to let people know but sadly cannot offer reasons for denial beyond that.  Any harassment of our volunteers will go unanswered and we will simply block you.   Our volunteers spend their time working hard to ensure the very best for each animal.   Please remember the animal, not the applicant, is our client.*****

Ankara is a true Anatolian girl. She is a smart 1 year old, quick to react and wants to control the situation. She loves observing her surroundings and she loves life on her terms. She is kind, but stongwilled and willing to cuddle at the same time. True to breed, Ankara can be a pushy female, so she should be in an environment where the other dogs will not challenge her. She is much more tolerant of large breed males. She enjoys independent play and patrolling the perimeter, and likes having a job. We are looking for a home with Livestock Guardian Dog experience to best suit Ankara's needs.  At the time you are seeing this post, this dog is still available for adoption.

Meet Arvo, a three-year-old Australian Shepherd, one of the resilient souls we welcomed from the HSUS hoarding case, where we've already rescued 24 dogs. Arvo, like her fellow companions, is a complete sweetheart, though she takes a little time to emerge from her shell. Having spent her initial years in a challenging environment, Arvo initially felt anxiety being in a loving home. Despite this, she showcases incredible bravery, seeks affection, and cautiously explores her new surroundings. Arvo's journey is truly heartwarming. Once completely shut down upon arrival, she has quickly begun to bravely engage with her environment, seeking love and pets from the humans she's grown most familiar with. While she may need some time to warm up to new faces and situations, Arvo is unmistakably eager to please, learning that people can be trusted. Her favorite activities include leisurely walks outside, where she can indulge in sniffing around. However, she's just as content to snooze indoors, showcasing her adaptable and easygoing nature. Arvo has peacefully coexisted with other dogs and has shown no interest in the resident cats. Arvo would thrive in a quieter household committed to positive reinforcement training, allowing her the space and time to adjust at her own pace. Despite being a bit wary of strangers, Arvo is an affectionate, sensitive, and smart girl, already making remarkable strides in her foster home. Are you ready to be part of Arvo's journey to a forever home?  www.greendogsunleashed.org/adopt At the time you are seeing this post, this dog is still available for adoption.

Benny is a mixed breed handsome fella about 4 years old who prefers a quieter home and does best as an only-dog. He prefers to meet new people outside first and then does well with them inside. He is very cuddly to his people and enjoys car rides and adventures. He loves lounging in the sunshine, barking at the deer in the field, and getting the zoomies all around his yard. He's a country boy at heart and would prefer the quieter life in the country. Apartment life and busy city life is not for him.  He should go to a home with older kids and no other dogs. He has been cat-indifferent so far. Benny is available to adopt through Green Dogs Unleashed. At the time you are seeing this post, Benny is still available for adoption.

This sweet mama is a 3-5 year old pure Chihuahua, embodying all the charm of this special breed. Weighing in at a petite 6 lbs, she arrived with a group of 10 from a hoarding case, later expanding to 12 when she delivered two adorable babies in our care. Now, Cayenne is ready to retire her baby-making hat and find a forever family to call her own. Cayenne is a tiny, sweet girl who's house-trained and sleeps through the night in her crate. Initially cautious around her full-sized foster siblings, she has blossomed into a pup who enjoys the company of both small and large dogs. She'd thrive in a home with furry companions or as an only dog, provided there's a strong human commitment to lap snuggles and ample scratches. Coming promptly when called and responding well to redirection, Cayenne exhibits excellent behavior in the home. She's cautious with new people, likely enhanced by her protective nature during her time with her babies. Nevertheless, once she warms up, Cayenne transforms into a sweet, tolerant snuggle bug, eager to please. When surrounded by her people, she's an easygoing dog— quiet and sweet once secure and will make a great companion in a low-traffic household with owners who won't push her past her comfort level with strangers. Because of this, paired with her tiny size, we believe she would do best in a home without small children. This lovely Chihuahua, with an affectionate nature, is ready to bring warmth and companionship to a home that appreciates her gentle spirit and provides the patience she deserves. If you're ready for a petite bundle of love, Cayenne is the perfect addition to your family! At the time you are seeing this post, this dog is still available for adoption.

Meet Cherry! She's a stunning, long-coated young Chihuahua momma who has recently weaned her two adorable puppies and is now ready for her own adventure. Cherry embodies the typical Chihuahua personality – sweet and fond of cuddling. She does also, display the Chi characteristic wariness of strangers, which tends to dissipate when she's in the arms of her trusted human companion. Cherry currently resides with several small foster pup siblings, and she thoroughly enjoys outdoor playtime with them. Given her background coming from a hoarding situation with many small dogs, we believe she would thrive in a home with another small dog as a playmate. Cherry has done well with house training since leaving her puppies and is gentle and eager to please. She has also been easy to groom. Cherry, however, becomes easily overwhelmed by the unpredictable sounds and movements of children, and due to her petite size she is more susceptible to accidental harm during rough play so we are looking for a home for her without small children.  If you're interested in providing a loving home for this beautiful and devoted momma, you can apply to adopt Cherry at greendogsunleashed.org/adopt/.

Introducing Crocodile Dundee, a one-year-old Australian Shepherd with a heart full of resilience and a story of survival. Crocodile's journey to Green Dogs Unleashed has been a story of resilience and recovery from a challenging past. Through our partnership with HSUS, he joined us with minimal human contact, often marked by unfortunate abuse. Now a shy yet hopeful fellow, he seeks a patient and caring home to help him blossom. Although the world overwhelms him, Crocodile, the introverted charmer, believes in the universal language of sniffs to greet everyone he meets. Crocodile finds solace in his crate, considering it his safe haven when the world becomes a bit too much. He takes delight in savoring his chews, demonstrating polite chewing habits that make them last a long time. If you're ready to be the patient and understanding friend who helps Crocodile emerge from his shell, we invite you to apply for his adoption at greendogsunleashed.org/adopt. This food-loving Aussie has a soft spot for chicken, and mealtime is a joyous occasion where he happily bonds with his human friends.

Meet Dodger, our beautiful lab mix pup and a real dog's dog. Dodger's journey began in a hoarding situation, where he and more than 100 dogs spent their lives with no positive contact with humans and minimal care. As a result, he's understandably wary of people, but he's making a sincere effort to learn how to be a cherished house pet. Dodger's most effective way of learning to trust human companionship is through leisurely walks, which he does politely with a loose lead and at a calm pace. He's crate-trained and has done an excellent job with housetraining. While he may be shy, Dodger is incredibly sweet. He's not defensive or aggressive in any way, just unsure about how to enjoy human affection. We are looking for a patient home for him, one without too much chaos, as he can startle easily. Therefore, a home without small children would likely be the best fit for him. Dodger's heart truly shines when he's around other pups, and he longs for the companionship of canine friends to romp and spend his days with. Ideal applicants for Dodger should have one (or a few) friendly pups at home who will welcome Dodger into their pack and assist him in continuing to learn how to be loved. Dodger is on his way to navigating a positive life, and if you and your pups think your home can help sweet Dodger learn to love and come out of his shell, please consider applying for him at greendogsunleashed.org/adopt.

Meet Henry! This charming 7-year-old Yorkie mix is a bundle of spunk and is always up for a good adventure. He's house-trained and tolerates being crated when his humans are away, although he'd much prefer if they could stay home with him all the time. Henry has shown good compatibility with his foster's resident dogs. However, he's made it clear that he's not a fan of cats. So, we're seeking a loving home for him without feline roommates. Henry is in the process of refining his leash manners, and he's making notable progress, particularly when using a gentle leader. Due to his small size, we are confident that with some continued guidance and training, he will evolve into a great walking companion. This little guy absolutely adores his people and will make a wonderful companion for an experienced owner who is frequently at home and shares enthusiasm for exciting adventures, just like Henry does. Henry is very much of the opinion that, if it's within paw's reach, it belongs to him and no one else. Any potential adopter must be familiar with resource guarding and how to accommodate a pet with this particular behavior. For this reason, it is not recommended that Henry go to a home with children. If you would like to apply for Henry you can do so today at greendogsunleashed.org/adopt/. At the time you are seeing this post, this dog is still available for adoption. But please know that we may be working on multiple applications already, and any one of them could be approved at any time.

 Meet Jalapeno, the epitome of adorableness – and a crate-trained, house-trained, and cat-friendly companion. While he may be a tad shy at first, Jalapeno is a genuine velcro pup, always up for a snug session on the couch. Jalapeno's affectionate nature shines, making him a sweet and endearing companion. To thrive, he's seeking a patient and understanding home that can help him build confidence and overcome initial fears. For this reason, we believe he'll flourish best in a home without small children. Jalapeno's foster, who works at a vet, has been instrumental in helping him navigate interactions with friendly strangers. At home, he forges deep bonds with his person, and he yearns for nothing more than a forever friend. Ideal for apartment living, Jalapeno isn't a fan of the yard but revels in sidewalk strolls. Surprisingly quiet, he only vocalizes when he needs something – and yes, he daydreams of sharing the bed, though he's content in his crate. J alapeno is a delightful Chi with a heart as vast as his charm. Ready to welcome this sweet, shy boy into your home? Let patience and love pave the way to his forever family!  www.greendogsunleashed.org/adopt At the time you are seeing this post, this dog is still available for adoption.

It’s quite impossible not to look into Lumi’s eyes and fall in love. We all have here at GDU, and Lumi has been quite at home. After almost six months of fostering with our Behavior Specialist, we feel she is finally ready to embark on her next adventure, no matter how many tears we will shed seeing her off. Lumi is a very special girl who will need an extremely patient and understanding family. She may spend many weeks hiding in a new home, and the ability to allow her agency over her body and daily activities is imperative. For this ready a securely fenced yard is an absolute must, and commitment to allowing her to trail a long line, and the patience while she gets to know you is key. Lumi LOVES other dogs and cats. In fact, she has her very own Emotional Support Cat here at GDU HQ and would love it if you had one too. But playful, friendly, socially appropriate dogs would also work. She LIVES to play with others. Lumi crates amazingly well and doesn’t make a peep. She has decent house manners but will steal trash if given the chance and does submissive pee if someone unexpectedly grabs her. Adopter MUST : -Have another dog. -Have patience love, and kindness. -Be willing to come to GDU for ongoing training and several meetings prior to adoption. -Understand she will need patience and not push her. -Accept they are also basically adopting me and send me a Christmas card every year. I will cry big, ugly tears when she leaves. - Erika At the time you are seeing this post, this dog is still available for adoption.

Marloo, a delightful four-year-old Australian Shepherd, entered our care as part of a large hoarding case. Since arriving at Green Dogs Unleashed (GDU), she has made tremendous strides, showcasing resilience and a spirit eager to experience the kindness she was never shown before. Home Sweet Home: Doing remarkably well with house training, Marloo appreciates frequent opportunities to go outside. Her ideal home would be a tranquil one, as she thrives in a calm environment. Due to her shyness, a home without small children may be best. Furry Friends: Marloo finds solace in the company of other dogs, providing her with a sense of security and confidence. A balanced pup in her new home could be an ideal companion to help her continue gaining assurance in the world. Playful and Loving: Marloo's joy shines through when she's outdoors, running, jumping, and playing ball independently. Inside, she transforms into a snuggle buddy, appreciating the company of humans who respect her pace and allow her to warm up. Patient Hearts Wanted: Although timid, Marloo reveals her playful, energetic, and loving nature daily. With the right dose of patience, love, and empathy, you can help this sweet girl learn that the world is a safe and loving place. In return, she promises to fill your life with unimaginable love and happiness. Ready for Adoption: If you have the heart to provide Marloo with the patience and care she needs, she's ready to bring joy and love to her forever home.
