My name is Chipper "Bones" and I'm looking to steal your heart! I'm a sweet and gentle boy who just wants to be loved. I spent quite a while in the shelter but I was a brave boy and knew I would be saved. When my foster family brought me home and gave me a bath I enjoyed every minute! I was very well behaved and afterwards I felt like a brand new dog! Unfortunately, I wasn't taken care of before I landed in the shelter and underweight, then we were thrown a curve ball... I had heart worms. It hasn't been fun to be on the D-DL (Doggie Disabled List) but I've spent a lot of time resting while being treated and taken care of. I'm quiet in my kennel, especially if somebody stays in the room with me. I walk very politely on a leash and I don't pull, my foster kids can even walk me! I just like to stay close to my people. My foster family has a female boxer who stays right by my side and I enjoy her company and we like to lay together. I will be looking for a place to call home soon and hope I can knock that out of the park! I'd love to find a loving family that will shower me with attention. If you would like to meet me please put Chipper on your application. If you are already approved, please email the adoption coordinator and ask to be put on my list.

Gunner is a sweet lover boy! This poor guy has not had it easy since coming into the rescue. He's finally getting better from an upset tummy, neuter and tail surgery and on his way to a speedy recovery. Gunner loves people and wants to be with you as much as possible. Right now, we feel he needs a home where he is not left alone often so he can settle in and feel secure. He has met a few other dogs and has shown good behavior so we think with the right introduction he'd do well. So far we know that Gunner appears to be house trained, he walks very well on the leash and that the crate is not his favorite place. We are hoping with a little more patience and training he'll be ok with crating or possibly free roam. For now, we are still learning about this sweet boy and getting some much need weight on him. If you think Gunner may be a potential match, just mention him on your application. If you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and ask to be on his list.

Talley

Talley is a wonderful little love bug that is looking for very patient parents. When she first came to her foster home, she did not know anything as we suspect she lived a life outdoors and having babies. She is catching on quickly and will need a loving family to help show her the ropes. At times she seems timid and frightened by quick hand movements and raised voices, which makes us believe that her past life was probably not so great. She wants to trust but doesn't know what to expect since she doesn't know what a good life is like. Well all that is about to change for sweet Talley!

She is loving life inside and very good in her crate; she walks in freely with a treat offering. Her accidents both in the crate and in the house have become less, she is slowly getting the hang of "outside potty". We have been working on sitting and taking treats nicely. She doesn't know the word yet, but a light touch on her bum and she sits.

Although we are unsure of Talley's true age, she behaves more like a puppy with her mannerisms, she is either full steam or sleeping. She may be too much for a home with small children and may accidentally knock them down with her playful nature until she refines her ladylike manners. She is good with her foster fur brother, a male Lab but may be too much for small or senior dogs, she can be a little piggy when attention is given out and doesn't mind pushing her way to the front. Her perfect home would be one with someone home ofen that can gently teach her and give her lots of reassuring love, she's missed out on this and craves it. Talley is sure to make a great addition to any family that is committed to helping her be the best pup she can be. If she sounds like a perfect fit, then mention Talley on your application. If you are already approved, just email the adoption coordinator and ask to be on her list.

Bindi and Diesel

Diesel and Bindi are the sweetest little souls you will ever meet! They came to our rescue after losing their home and family, and almost lost each other after being separated in the shelter. Diesel looks after Bindi, as she is the more cautious one, he dotes on her, walking over to give her kisses before lying down to snooze. Both are very affectionate but in different ways: Diesel likes to bump up and lean against you and gives plenty of kisses while Bindi is more subtle, sliding her nose closer , then lifting one front paw to half show her belly for you to rub. If you sit on the bed with them she will snuggle up and put her head on your lap and Diesel will follow you around the room and stay close while Bindi hogs the bed. These two clearly love companionship and seem to soak in all the attention given from their humans and each other.

The two are looking for a home where they can enjoy being the only dogs. Both are not good with other furry friends (dogs/cats) and need a family that is ok with just having these two as permanent family members. They have been through a lot and clearly lean on each other for support and comfort. They have been around children all their lives and do very well with them. They are playful and excited to meet new people, and hope to find a forever family with a heart and home for two. Their ideal home would have a fence where the two could play freely and get in some exercise. Both are house and crate trained. If you would like to learn more about Bindi and Diesel and think this dynamic duo could add to your family what you have been missing, just mention them on your application. If you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and ask to be added to their list.

Hi! My name is Layla. I am a very well mannered, happy, sweet natured girl. I recently came to the rescue after my family could no longer care from me. I lived with a wonderful family where I had a teen-aged skin sister (she was my person) and a fur brother who made me feel safe. ABR was contacted so I could have a chance to find a wonderful forever home. I currently live in a foster home with a mom, 10 year old skin brother, and a foster fur-sister....there are also a lot of smaller fur siblings which meow. I have thought about getting a closer look, but then my foster mom says, "no" or "leave it" so I find something else to do. I love hearing, "good girl" so I always do whatever she says. My foster fur sister has a lot of toys, but I would rather just play with her. Sometimes when we go outside I will see something run so I will chase, but balls don't really interest me. Having a fur sibling is very important to me as I love the companionship and they reassure me that things are ok. I am a little hesitant of men, they make me very nervous. I shake terribly if one is near and will glue myself to something or someone to feel safe. I will do slow to warm up so I need a patient family. I am very well behaved in the house, so much that my family never crated me. My foster mom will crate me and my foster sister for meals and when she leaves for work (or gone several hours) and I do just fine. I am looking for a home where I can get lots of love and help with my confidence to trust the world around me. A foster fur-sibling(s) is a must as this helps me feel so much better, plus how can you have just one??!! I am currently being treated for heartworms and will be ready for my furever in late July. If I sound like a great pup to you, just mention me on your application or if you are already approved, asked to be put on Layla's list!

Harley is a sweet, calm, easy going boy with good house manners, except he looooves food, which leads him to countersurf and will get into a kitchen trashcan if it's available to him. Harley is dog friendly and enjoys short walks on leash. He has not been tested with cats yet. There are no children in Harley's foster home, but with his calm demeanor, it is expected that he would be fine with children that are old enough to know how to treat a dog. He is estimated to be 9 years old. Harley does still have some spunk and from time to time enjoys running in the yard with other dogs in his foster home. He will excitedly come to his foster mom when called. Harley appears to be housetrained. He is heartworm negative, neutered, up to date on shots and microchipped. He will be available for adoption in early June. If Harley sounds like he would be a good fit for your family, fill out an application with ABR and mention 'Harley'!

Otto here!  I'm still hoping that my forever family is coming soon!  I've been such a good boy and working great on my manners, I've learned so much and so well mannered.  I know several basic commands, my foster mom says I am a smart boy and just want to please my people!  I do get excited when out on walks and do tend to pull to meet new people, then of course want attention and may jump, but I'm just excited to meet you.  I have been working on my leash manners and doing so much better.  I do great in the home and I am house and crate trained.  I love playing with my toys and have really started to show so much personality, my foster mom says I am always "smiling" and happy every day!  I am just glad that I have a 2nd chance to have a family that will love me forever.  I prefer to be the only dog in the home and hope there is a family that can devout all their attention to me.  I sure hope my furever family comes soon!  If you think I am what you've been looking for, just mention Otto on your application or if you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and let them know you would like to meet me.

Phoebe is only available to a very experienced dog owner with the ability to work on her training long term. She is a little timid and unsure when she first meets new people but warms up quickly. Phoebe would do best in a quieter home as she prefers the simple life of just relaxing and hanging out with her people. She is house and crate trained and also does well with free roam in the house. Phoebe is still working on meeting strangers, she has been through a lot and needs a committed family willing to work with building her confidence and helping her feel secure. She would do best as the only dog as she can be selective with other pups and a home with no cats. Phoebe is looking for a family where she will be spoiled rotten and she can get in as much snuggle time as possible. She will need a home with a fenced in yard where she can run around in delight without worry, and a home without small children. Phoebe would love to find her forever family and is hoping someone is ready to find her! If Phoebe sounds like a good match, please mention her on your application. If you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and let them know you would like to meet Phoebe!

Lizzy is a beautiful 3 legged bundle of energy. Having 3 legs has not slowed this girl down, she is still a playful pup with no limitations. This sweet girl loves to cuddle and go for car rides. Lizzy would love an active family that can keep her entertained and also work on some of her doggy manners, she's just your typical silly girl full of energy. She is house / crate trained and can be a little nosey at times (looking on counters, searching for things to get in to) so must have things picked up and/or out of reach until she has learned the house rules. Lizzy is very smart and catches on quickly. She loves playing with her toys and going for walks, she is a very skilled lizard hunter! Lizzy would love to have a family where she could soak up all the attention and would do best as the only dog for now as she can be dog selective, she tends to do better with males. Lizzy has a lot of love to give a special family. She loves all people but may have too much energy for smaller children, she's still has those typical puppy traits. If you are looking for a silly girl with the boxer antics/personality, Lizzy is your girl. Please let us know if you are interested in hearing more or meeting Lizzy.
