Dogs in Foster Homes

Breed:Labrador Retriever (Mix)

  • My story: Trudy is a wonderful girl who fit right in with all the other foster dogs living at the foster home! A happy girl who was saved from a local shelter...she is crate trained, housebroken and knows basic commands. She loves to play with the other dogs she lives with...and could be left out all day without being crated and she doesn't touch anything! She is very gentle and loving and would be a great companion to whomever adopts her! She loves to sleep in bed with you under the covers...and will even cover herself up under the blankets or sheet! Fill out Trudy's application and she will be right over to meet you!

    Special Needs: Trudy needs someone to keep her safe during thunderstorms...she shakes and wants to hide during them.

I don't know why I was put in a Shelter...but I love to play with other dogs...and I am looking for my new "Furever Family" to spend the rest of my life with. I do have a prey drive...so I will chase any of those kitty cats away from your house! So if you need you house guarded from small critters and want a fun loving boy to play with...fill out my application and I will be right over to fill the opening in your household!

Breed:Labrador Retriever (Mix)
Weight:60 lbs
  • My story: Hi there! My name is Libby (formerly Lily in the local shelter) and I am 1 1/2 years old and currently 60 lbs. Currently because I should be about 65 lbs and my foster mommy is working on fattening me up! I was saved on the day I was supposed to be euthanized...and all because I became aggressive to the shelter staff...after my former family left me at the shelter because the landlord said I grew too big to live with them. I wasn't really aggressive...just really, really scared out there! I wouldn't let anyone come near me...and in fact fought them the whole time they were trying to release me to my new foster mommy. She got me to her house and calmed me down and now I am stuck to her like Canine Velcro! Even when I am laying at her feet...I am touching her with my paw or laying my head on her foot. I love to sit right next to her on the couch and watch tv too! I also like to sleep in bed right next to you too! I know how to sit and shake, I am crate and house trained and I take my whole head and put it under your arm to get closer for a big hug! I even will grab or hook your leg with my paw...and hold on to you! My foster mom has four other dogs living here...and I love to play and wrestle with them! I am just discovering what toys are....put I take them and put them all in the corner and try to keep them all! I am learning to play with my housemates. Sorry...but I find those furry felines...very tempting to chase...so no kitties please. So if you are looking for a big baby girl who will be your constant companion...fill out my application and I will be over to give you big kisses and hugs!

  • My story: I am a big love! Still a puppy, and a bit energetic. I love to play! I am mostly house-trained (with the occasional accident if I am not let out), and I am crate trained for when you go out. My foster mommy suggests you don't leave things on the floor that are not toys for me, because I just haven't quite grasped the concept of not mine. I do jump small fences, so you would need to have a tall fence (at least 6 feet) if you plan on just putting me out back sometimes. I am really smart and am already learning commands after a week with my foster mommy. She said it isn't my fault that my last three homes never bothered to try to train me. I really hope my next home is my forever home! My foster mommy has begun taking lessons with me with our St. Francis volunteer trainer! I am learning fast! I am great with cats if they don't run, but most do, so I chase. I am VERY gentle with children and small dogs. I am very gentle with kids and the blind dog at my foster-home. I jump on adults though, my foster mommy says I am a sweetie with no manners. She is trying to teach them to me! I spent the last 6 months with a newborn and a toddler. I never hurt them and I was very good with them. Please give me a chance...you won't regret it!
