Emma and Ruby Coonhound Sisters (Bonded Pair/Adopt as Pair) About 4 years old 50 pounds VISIBLE ABOVE-GROUND FENCE REQUIRED LOCAL LOUISVILLE AREA ADOPTIONS / --includes Jeffersonville, Clarksville, New Albany in Indiana $300.00 plus 6% Tax for Adoption Fee/For Pair -- "I'd Walk a Thousand Miles For You" Emma and Ruby -- We guess we'll never know how many miles these sisters walked, but they walked and they walked and they walked. And by the time a wonderful woman and her husband found them Emma and Ruby's paws were swollen, red and blistered. We don't even know where they gathered the energy. Their bones could easily be counted. They acted like they'd never eaten a meal in their lives. They were terribly neglected physically. Medical complications arose because of their neglect but the Good Samaritan who found these babies hung in with them. And we mean hung in! It isn't always convenient to be a Good Samaritan. A person who sees a pet in need and decides they can't turn their back. But the payoff for the heart ... well, you can't put it into words but you can sure put it into pictures. Look at Emma and Ruby now! ♥ The only thing better than this amazing picture of these darling sisters is that last picture we can't wait to post. The day they find their forever home! Ruby and Emma are approximately 4 years old around 58 pounds. They've done amazingly well with the other dogs and they are just wonderful with humans. Love kept these two sisters together and maybe that hope and prayer of a forever family is what kept them going. ♥ ♥ To adopt write to: firstname.lastname@example.org (Louisville, Ky Local) cc 08/0`/2019 View full description »

Sadie really is a beautiful girl with her cream colored coat and beautiful spots sprinkled throughout. This young lady wakes up happy and goes to bed happy. But what makes her the very happiest is playing. Sadie would do great with another playful dog and an active human. She's done very well with her foster Mom's dogs. When Sadie is not playing fetch or entertaining herself she really loves following her humans. Sadie is no couch potato but she'd sure love to be next to someone on the couch cuddling. Sadie would do great with some positive training. She really is still a pup in so many ways and we feel with good love, consistency and a long term commitment to a baby who loves something to do and someone to do it with her pawtential is limitless. This lovely lady needs a secured above ground fence so she can perfect her zoomies. Sadie never meets a stranger and kids do kinda make her smile but we suggest older kids just because she still has a lot of puppy inside. If you'd like to also wake up happy and go to bed happy every day....Sadie says: "Come look MY way!" cc: 02/01/2021 View full description »
SHAW LAB/PINSCHER MIX 8 YEARS OLD APPROXIMATELY 45 POUNDS WOULD DO GREAT AS ONLY PET OR SWEET DOG OLDER CHILDREN BACKED YARD VISIBLE FENCE LOUISVILLE AREA ADOPTIONS ADOPTION FEE:TBD Shaw - a.k.a. “Shaw Bear,” “Baby Girl” and “Boo Boo.” This beauty is a black and tan cutest ears ever mix. Seemingly a Doberman Pinscher mix, medium stature, approximately 8-9 years old and possesses the most unique and lovable personality. She loves to be involved with whatever you’re doing, whether it’s walking in the park, dancing in the kitchen or escorting you to the restroom. Though she is a homebody, Shaw also loves to go on hikes and field trips to the store. When you’re gone, she will keep the bed warm and the house safe. She loves to bark and pounce when she thinks you’re playing. Her alone time is also very valuable to her, randomly opting for the couch instead of snuggling in bed and vice-versa. She sits and lays...but only when treats are involved. She’s not great at fetch but loves to chase toys. Though a veteran vermin hunter and mailman terrorizer, she is incredibly cuddly, good at listening, wonderful at walking and leans into hugs. She was a rescue dog at the age of two, found with methamphetamine in her system, multiple wounds, some of which has left her mildly scarred in and out and a nervous disposition towards humans. With a loving home, she has learned to love and trust again and has molded into the rightfully spoiled pet that she is now. The lasting effects include, nervousness towards cars that approach her from behind, very loud sounds (fireworks and serious storms), telling her “No” at times will cause her to cower and pee, as well as any sort of confrontation or aggressive behavior. Shaw will thrive in a high energy household where she can be pampered with affection but also play hard with her human(s). She really does love being the center of attention, so a home with no other pets or children is advised. You can guarantee that if Shaw becomes your dog she will be loving and faithful almost to a fault. I cannot put into words how amazing this dog is. She’s got a million adorable quirks and the goofiest mannerisms. We, her current family, have loved her from the moment she joined us and we will continue to even though she has to find a new family to love. With a new baby in our lives, Shaw has become confused, unpredictable and even a little sad because she doesn’t understand why she has to share us. With heavy but hopeful hearts, it is incredibly important to us that she finds a forever home with people who will keep her until her last days, holding her paw in the end if need be because that is what she deserves. cc: 02/12/2021 View full description »

No more looking from the outside in. For the first time in a very long time Storm has literally come in from the rain and the elements. Storm is now enjoying the freedom of running and walking without constraints. No doubt Storm is absolutely beautiful. More importantly, Storm's rescue family brought back trust, love and light. What a difference love makes! Storm's once dull coat shines and glistens. It's amazing what love can do. Those once hopeless but hopeful eyes now shine brightly. And Storm? Well she feels as blessed for the family who saved her as they do with her presence. Storm would do well with children over 6 and would thrive with another sweet dog. Storm had been alone day in and out for so long that we feel she would thrive with another canine buddy to hang with. We promise it won't take away from the never ending love that Stormy has to give. Gray skies are sure to clear up when you adopt Storm and we promise that YOU will definitely put on a happy face. cc: 10/21/2020 View full description »
