BRANDY BEAR (I do kinda look like a beautiful bear) Golden Lab/Retriever Mix 2-Two and half years old 55 pounds Preferably a home with another sweet dog Visible Above Ground Fence Good with older children Adoption Fee: $175.00 plus 6% Sales Tax Louisville, Kentucky Adoption Area My nice foster mommy is letting me type up my plea for a Furever home (pretty cool that I can type, huh? Keyboards are not meant for paws!) I am about 2 1/2 years old and weigh about 55 pounds. My foster mommy tells me all the time how beautiful and sweet I am. I have already had lots of adventures so I won’t need to be sowing any wild oats. Prerably a home with another sweet dog -can arrange meet and greets). My foster to adopter unfortunately passed away so I had to find a new place to crash. My favorite place to be is at my foster mom’s feet while she is working away. Since I am a proper southern lady, I don’t cuss much (that’s barking to you humans) and I only dine on fine cuisine (I don’t like to eat shoes, couches, phones, remotes, glasses or small children). I also only go to the bathroom outside. I am happy to be with my people and chewing on a bone or just chillaxing.While I have made beautiful babies, the nice people at Shamrock had me spayed and I am up to date on all my shots. I have lived with cats, little dogs and big dogs and I love them all, but I am also content to be with my peeps so other animals are not a must. As I am a typical Lab, I play hard and then to have my beauty sleep. I like being outside so a fenced yard would be great and no need for it to be super tall, I don’t like to jump. I am learning to like the leash and walk nicely, but I may need a manners class or two. P.B. 04/13/2021 View full description »

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 »
Kit Kat Good with Cats Snuggly and Loving Approximately 3 Years Old Approximately 60 pounds Could be good with another sweet dog (We can arrange Meet and Greets) Loves to Walk Need a fenced in Yard Louisville, Kentucky Adoptions Lower Indiana/Clarksvie/Jeffersonville/New Albany Would be good with older children $150.00 Adoption fee plus 6% Sales Tax A lot of us could spend hours and lots of money to strive for shiny glossy locks but for Kit Kat well it just comes natrually. She just wakes up beautiful! Add gorgeous soulful eyes that sparkle in any light and look at you with sheer delight, Kit Kat is seriously striking. But let's delve deeper. Let's talk about the most important aspect of Kit Kat. That beautiful soul. Kit Kat is a kind dog. She's also very sensitive so having an owner who is home more is essential. Kit Kat did well with children over 8. She'es been wonderful with the cat and she seems to want to make friends with dogs she meets but would need proper introduction. And if you happen to have another dog "Meet and Greets," can be arranged. Kit Kat is not highly energetic but her family who has loved her very much feels she really needs a fenced yard. A place to play; sniff; make laps and explore. But going for walks - that would be pretty awesome too. We joke about Couch Potatoes but Kit Kat is a perfect couch potato and if she coud snuggle under any covers (couch, bed, etc.) well she'd be Heaven. If you want to endulge in something very sweet and never have to worry about calories you reallly need to have your own Kit Kat. Write to us at email@example.com cc: 3/30/2021 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 »
