Gorgeous Balto (hero husky) was rescued from a shelter where he was nervous first few days and needed time to warm up (Watch my video!). Once he felt safe he was friendly with female staff but a little nervous of their male staff. Our volunteers male and female met him and tested him. He warmed up to both of them fast and loved all their treats. He was fine with walks and being petted. He is also good with meeting other nice dogs. Poor Balto had severe ear infections so he had deep ear cleaning with meds packed in one ear the other ear has a membrane ruptured (needs to heal) and his neuter surgery yesterday. He is now relaxing and doing great at his foster home. Balto was really hungry and enjoyed his meal. He loves to play fetch with his toy and brings it back (drops). He is very happy now and loves rolling on the lawn. Balto is a sweetie. More photos and info to come as he heals gets healthier and learns at his foster home. He will need an experienced active guardian and a home with a backyard. No kids for now. We need time (2-3 weeks) to learn more about his personality. 3/1/21 update: Balto was neutered on Wed by the shelter vet. At first it seemed like normal swelling from neuter. He was happy eating and taking short walks. But as of last night he was feeling really bad. He was rushed in to our vet today that kindly allowed this at the last minute. Poor Balto had a severely infected (very swollen) scrotum from his neuter. It was so infected with pus that he needed urgent surgery at Tama Vet for scrotal ablation- removal of the scrotum versus medical management with antibiotics. He is staying over night for hospital care. Balto will be feeling better tomorrow when he goes back to his foster home for extra TLC. He will need 2 weeks to 1 month to heal. Donations appreciated for his $1000 surgery bill. 3/24/21 update: Balto is a very sweet friendly pup. He is super social and plays appropriately with all dogs no matter how big or small they are. We have a dog door leading to the fenced backyard and he enjoys going in and out to play in the yard at his leisure. Balto has many toys to throw in the air and play with. He also likes his kong toy especially with peanut butter. When we are home he lays down on the floor near me and relaxes. He likes to cuddle and loves to be next to me and to be brushed. At bedtime goes right into his crate. His crate door is always open and he may go in and out as he pleases. He sleeps through the night in it. In the morning he goes out to the backyard through his dog door to relieve himself. He has learned many new things such as how to jump up into the back of the SUV to go to fun places. He rides well in the car. He is still shy of men in general and will back up away from them. He likes walks but doesn't seem to want to go on long walks and will often just sit down to watch something of interest to him. He's overall a super gentle loving pup. 4/5/21 Update: Dog savvy/experienced kids 12 yrs+ and he just needs time to warm up with men.YouTube: https://youtu.be/b44YsEkHxMs show less

Bruno was abandoned by his owner at a shelter in unhealthy conditions. We rescued him.He had suffered severe chronic ear infections and ear hematomas which were treated by the shelter vet. He got deep ear cleaning and medication. His ears will need time to heal while he eats healthy foods. Bruno is good with other nice dogs and very people-friendly. He is large but gentle. Loves his walks good on the leash and seems house-trained already. He is a sweetie and very happy now. More info. to come as he relaxes heals and learns at his hero foster home. He will not be ready for 2-3 weeks. Will need an experienced adult home with a yard. Update 2/21/21: FH update. Bruno is doing great. Loves his daily 3-5 mile walks/hikes. His hero foster home also jogs daily and slowly building up Bruno's health to go on jogs with her. He is a sweetie and great partner. His ears are slowly healing from chronic severe ear infection. Loves his food smart and affectionate. Update 3/10/21: Poor Bruno had to go to our vet for 2nd sedation and ear cleaning. Swab shows yeast. He got meds and ointment to continue treatment. In case it's food allergy we have switched him to fish diet vs fowl that can cause inflammation in some dogs. Update 3/25/21: Sadly from neglect prior to the shelter Bruno will need his left inner ear membrane surgical removed since it is still infected deep inside and hard. As well as his left ear pinal (flap) due to severe chronic infection that has harden his ear and infected. The many ear medications have not worked. He will be deaf on his left side. He will need a specialist surgeon to perform the surgery which will cost us over $5200 plus all the other vet care. His vet bills will be over $7000. Bruno is s sweetie despite it all. Soon he will feel much better. Update 4/5/21: Sad news. Bruno had his CT Scan on Sat with a Certified Surgeon. Report came back today from specialist. He will need total ear canal ablation on both ears. Will cost us over $10000. Ugh!!! After this surgery which will remove pain/infection he will be deaf. Due to his current foster home's upcoming vacation in 2 weeks he will need a new dedicated foster home to guide and train with Deaf Dog needs. Another dog usually help the deaf dog. We have fostered and placed many deaf dogs and all learn. Deaf Dog Training: Training the Deaf Dog: Just because your dog can’t hear doesn’t mean she can’t learn How to Communicate with a Deaf Dog Training the Hearing Impaired Dog: Training a dog who is deaf or hard of hearing is not difficult it's just a little different. show less

Gibby is very friendly with people likes car rides going on walks and runs and taking naps. He is good in the house and prefers to be inside during the day. He is house trained and exhibits no destructive behavior to belongings or furniture. He likes to be with people all day. He has had no signs of aggression when I've had him. He is a gentle guy and very trainable. He knows 'sit' and 'leave it' and is very obedient. Best to be homed as a single dog or with a well adjusted friendly large dog. Gibson's exercise needs are low maintenance for his breed. He will sleep at your feet while you work from home or watch you cook and do chores. He has gone out dining and out shopping- he loves to meet people. I work full time and take him out in the evenings and mornings and that seems to be enough to keep him satisfied. He would be a great companion. I suspect he would like to run around with another furry companion if I had one for him. He plays with other friendly big dogs at the dog park! Gibby has growled at other dogs when approached by other dogs while he is on leash but has since shown improvement . He now attends doggy daycare and plays great with all the other dogs. He likes most dogs but especially females. He does have separation anxiety but is manageable because he just wants a person with him. I hardly ever leave him alone except for short periods (10-15 minutes) but mainly lots of barking and trying to go through door or window to get to me. When left in the backyard for some time while knowing you're inside ( I watch him from a large window ) he will sleep by the door. He mainly wants to be by you. If there is another human out there he will follow them though- very friendly. He could benefit from crate training but I think it will take time. I have a crate for him and we are working on it. He wanted to get out when I put him in. Lots of barking when left alone even for short periods of time He needs a human to feel secure- not necessarily the owner. He stays at a relative's house when I run errands and he does really well! He gets a little sad but no barking and warms up to who are with him. He presents a prey drive - someone familiar with the husky breed will be a great match! No small animals cats or rural areas near livestock. Gibby needs a home that has some prior dog experience. Kids 10+. He can be a little mouthy (not in an aggressive way) when you play with him. He also jumps a little when excited to see you and could knock down a small child. Older children and/or calm children who have lived with a dog would probably be best. Gibby can get a little anxious around hyperactivity. We are helping Gibby's current guardian to rehome him. Please fill out our online application and we will forward to them. Adoption fee would be minimum $100 donation to Furry Friends Rescue. If you have specific questions please send them through and we will put you in touch with his current guardian. show less

We rescued sweetie Mika from a shelter when her previous guardian surrendered her there. Person told shelter that she is 8 yrs but we will need our vet to confirm with exam. She seems younger maybe 6 yrs. She was sad confused and nervous at the shelter for first few days but warmed up to the shelter staff. At first she was nervous of being picked up but after a few days she was fine with being petting and picked up. Easy on leash and curious. Good with polite dogs. Already doing well on her first day at her foster home with 2 other dogs. When she met us it took her a couple of minutes to approach and take Full Moon Chicken filet treats. Then she was friendly tail wagging approaching us for more treats and being petted. She is a sweetie and needs a true forever home for life. Mika needs to eat healthy foods and lose weight with daily walks. Adorable. 3/15/21 Update: She sees our feral cat on porch and doesn’t seem to really care. She looks but doesn’t bark or try to chase. She is potty trained she was for most part when she arrived but we had to fine tune in the last month. She is a funny dog not big on much affection but does like to be close and sit on my lap. She likes toys will chase after toys/balls walks and loves her bed. She does not like to be picked up unless she’s inside her bed we call it her “elevator”. show less

Noelle (watch my video at the shelter and me at my foster home!) was neglected and thin when she was abandoned at a dog park. Shelter took her in and started her vet care. She had fly bites on her ear was thin had flea dermatitis needed dental (worn bottom teeth) and overall unhealthy. After a month at the shelter her time was up. She had no options left and was getting kennel stressed. Thanks to our foster home we were able to rescue her. Noelle is people friendly and loves attention. With dogs at the shelter play-yard she needed to meet first and then fine hanging out. She does listen to corrections. When finally out of the shelter she did do excitement barking at dogs at a distance. We have to see if she was barking because she was excited to be out finally (after a month) or reactive to dog park. GSD do like to talk. Noelle did fine on walk and already knows 'sit' and 'down' for treats. She loves to play ball and will bring it back & drop it. Noelle is now relaxing at her foster home after her spay and dental/extractions. She needs time to relax learn and get healthier. Noelle is beautiful and smart. She will need an experienced GSD guardian. Adult-only and home with yard. More info. to come from her Foster Home. Update from foster home: Noelle looks like a smaller younger version of President Biden’s German shepherd Champ!! She isn't the bony skinny dog that she once was and her coat feels nice & soft now. She is like a shadow- always moves to nap nearby her human and sleeping at her human’s feet in the evening sometimes leaning on legs & feet (makes a good foot warmer!). She tends to be protective of her caretaker alarm barking when her human says “ouch” loudly. She has learned to not bark inside or in the side yard at other dogs barking outside. She knows her boundaries of where it’s okay to wander inside the house waits for permission to enter and does not beg or act mischievous inside. She sleeps well in her crate when it’s time to go to bed and was housetrained from the beginning. She’s smart and has learned how to bow wait play dead chase her tail and touch designated items with her nose and catch a soft Frisbee as well as already knowing how to sit lie down and shake her paw. She's fine with having her paws lifted and wiped dry but is still shy of nail clippers. She’s treat-motivated but she really loves playing fetch. She learned to not pull on her leash on walks. She is very loving to her caretakers and friendly to people she meets. Ear rubs and treats are tied for second favorite after fetching balls & soft frisbees. Bikes cars skateboarders joggers etc. don’t bother her. She does bark loudly at other dogs and cats and pulls to greet them. She needs a firm hand to hold her when she walks near unfamiliar dogs. After her initial barking and excited pulling and when her leash is off she acts fine with dogs. It seems that she doesn’t react to squirrels but it may be because she gets distracted by dogs and doesn’t notice squirrels. She loves going for a car ride. While she easily does up to 6-mile hikes on weekends she is also fine with just sleeping at your feet while you’re at the computer after a short morning walk during weekdays as long as she can play fetch in the afternoon and get her longer walk in the evenings. Noelle is very much a companion dog who needs to be by her humans. I hope she finds her forever home because she has a lot of love to give and would make her owners her world.YouTube: https://youtu.be/zKA79Jy3Cxk show less

Porscha is a 7 1/2-year-old female Great Pyrenees/Anatolian mixed. She is a gentle giant. If she gets a long walk in the morning she is fine for rest of day. She was raised as an outside dog but can easily be house broken. She has long hair over angora fur and sheds in springtime. She obeys commands such as lay down sit and be quiet. She likes to be around people and great around children. Barks when she needs attention “she is loud”. She’s never been crated but could possibly be trained. She doesn't like cats or squirrels. She is current with all her shots and has been spayed. During her recent exam the Vet recommended teeth cleaning at some point but there are no immediate concerns with her teeth. He also made a comment that she has muscle loss in her rear legs. Could be because of her age or not enough exercise. She still goes for walks just not as far as she used to. She would make a great companion for any family. With other dogs she is shy/timid. One-on-one she is ok but if meeting more than one dog at a time she is afraid. We are helping Porscha's current guardian to rehome her. Please fill out our online application and we will forward to them. Adoption fee would be $100 donation to Furry Friends Rescue. If you have specific questions please send them through and we will put you in touch with his current guardian. show less

Ripley is a 2 year old border collie mix. She loves to snuggle and is happiest when she’s curled up on the couch with her people. She also loves going on walks playing fetch at the dog park playing with puzzles and toys and taking long naps in the sunshine. Ripley is very well-trained and knows standard commands (sit stay lie down stand heel etc...). She also knows lots of fun tricks (weaving through legs giving her paw speaking crawling rolling over etc...). She’s leash- potty- and crate-trained and loves being around other dogs. She's very smart and easy to train. Ripley will need a home with advanced dog experience. She gets anxious around strangers and small children. When strangers approach her she growls barks and lunges. While she has never bitten anyone she shows signs that she will bite if the person does not back away. She has also shown resource guarding behavior (primarily with high value treats and toys) as well as a prey drive. Ripley would thrive in a home that is calm and quiet. She would do best with an owner who is active and can take her out for exercise at least 30 mins/day (or hire a dog walker). Although she is crate-trained she gets anxious if left alone for long periods so it would be ideal if her owner were with her most of the day. She will also need an owner who is patient and will give her lots of positive encouragement. Unknown how she'd be with cats but assume not good. No kids. We are helping Ripley's current guardian to rehome her. Please fill out our online application and we will forward to them. Adoption fee would be minimum $100 donation to Furry Friends Rescue. If you have specific questions please send them through and we will put you in touch with her current guardian. show less
