Dog Of The Month: August 2019: Yoshi

Meet Yoshi

ID NUMBER: #188307
AGE:
7 1/2 YRS OLD
BREED: AMERICAN STAFFORDSHIRE TERRIER
SEX: MALE
WEIGHT: 44 LBS
LOCATION: IN FOSTER

My name is Yoshi and I am an adult neutered male American Staffordshire Terrier mix. My foster mommy says that I am the best dog she has ever fostered. I am very quiet, I have wonderful manners, I'm housetrained, I walk perfect on the leash, I love to cuddle on the couch and I'm a low key fella. I'm a wonderful dog but I'm very shy and I take time to warm up to people. So to help me find a great home my foster mommy asked me to make a list of what I want in my new home. Number 1: I really need a home with another dog. I'm specifically looking for a home with a friendly, social, outgoing, non dominant neutered male dog to be friends with. I get along with everyone but I really want a bro to be pals with. Since I'm so timid and shy I pull my confidence from the dogs around me which is why I need a friend. I've been to day camp and playgroups at the shelter and have done well with all sized dogs big to extra small. Number 2: A low key home where I am an inside pet and not left alone outside. I would do best in a home without small kids because noise and fast movements can really scare me. Number 3: A patient loving person who will understand it takes me a bit to get settled and come out of my shell. Foster mommy has worked with me a lot and says that routines help me feel more secure and confident. Number 4: A fenced in yard so my new pal and me can play together. I love to run outside and roll in the grass but don't worry in less than 10 minutes I'll be patiently waiting at the back door to come in. I have Heartworms but they are totally treatable and Friends of Wake County Animal Center have generously donated $350 towards my treatment. I'm a quirky little fella but once you become my friend I'm very loving and sweet. If you think you might be the right home for me please contact my foster mommy at muttstuffnc@hotmail.com. She will be happy to talk with you and set up a time to meet me.

Dog Of The Month: July 2019: Teardrop

Meet Teardrop

ID NUMBER: #133724
AGE:
3
BREED: LAB/TERRIER MIX
SEX: FEMALE
WEIGHT: 67 LBS
LOCATION: WAKE COUNTY ANIMAL CENTER

Hey there--I'm Teardrop. I know I drew you in with my gorgeous eyes and coloring, didn't I? It's true, I am a beautiful, three year old Lab/Terrier Mix. But, I have been told that I am also a very good girl. I walk perfectly on a leash, am treat motivated (I even know sit!), listen to corrections, and love to play with other male dogs here in playgroups. The staff and volunteers say I am one of their favorites--whatever that means. Honestly, I'm pretty low key. I like to chill and nap or go for a hike or walk--whatever my favorite person wants to do. I have been told I have this thing called Heartworms, but apparently, it's extremely easy to treat and the kind people from the Friends Of Wake County Animal Center have placed a $350 sponsorship on me towards treatment--don't let that deter you. So, won't you consider visiting me today and see how lovely, special I really am? Big hugs, Teardrop.

Meet Fergie

ID NUMBER: #173738
AGE:
9
BREED: HOUND
SEX: MALE
WEIGHT: 50 LB
LOCATION: IN FOSTER

Hello everyone! My name if Fergie, and I am a spritely older gentleman looking for my forever couch. I love watching TV with my fellow humans (especially the part where I get belly rubs). I am overall a relaxed dog that may have a short spurt or energy or two throughout the day. My foster mom says I am house-trained and crate-trained and am very obedient with peanut butter. I may whine a bit if you leave me in the crate for too long though. I get along great with all my human and doggie friends. Don't you want to meet me today?

Dog Of The Month: May 2019: Levi

Meet Levi

ID NUMBER: #165959
AGE:
6
BREED: AMERICAN STAFFORDSHIRE TERRIER
SEX: MALE
WEIGHT: 70 LB
LOCATION: IN FOSTER

I'm Levi! I am the world's best couch-potato-buddy and there is nothing in the world that I love better than to snuggle and be with my people. I might be six years old, but I have plenty of energy and love playing and long walks. I have impeccable potty habits and I walk well on a leash (and am learning to ignore the squirrels, ha!). I respond well to positive praise and ear rubs and my foster mom and dad have signed me up for training classes to learn more good-boy habits. I am well behaved while they are at work, just give me a peanut butter Kong and a soft couch or bed, and I am a good boy all day. I am living in a house with cats and I really like them and they like me. I have met other dogs on my walks and am being trained to be respectful, but I would do best in a home where I am the only dog. I am neutered and I have had all my shots and I am healthy and happy. If you would like more information or to meet me, please contact my fosters at susan@jandsbray.com.
