BIO:


Bette is a very sweet girl. She is well-mannered, knows the commands "Sit," "Down," "Stay" and "Shake" and she walks well with her harness. One unique thing about her is that her left eye is partially blue.

 

Bette does have unpredictable dog aggression, so she needs to be the only dog in the house. She does have a history of going after other dogs, with the last instance being in April. Her former owner did state that a training collar used had no impact on her pulling if there is another dog around. Bette is not known to chew on anything that isn't a toy and doesn't have food or territory issues. 

 

UPDATES: 


Bette is current on all vaccinations, micro chipped and spayed. She will need to continue having eye drops in her eyes to treat dry eye, and she will also require two ointments to be applied three times a day moving forward. Due to her eye issues, she may have some partial vision loss.  She also is on joint supplements for a luxating patella in her left leg, but she has not had any trouble with it since coming in to rescue.

 

Bette is a joy at home, and she can be a very high energy girl when playing with her squeaky toys and chewing on her bones.  She gets along with humans, but little Miss Attitude has gotten into a fight with the neighbor’s dog. She HAS to have a home with no other dogs, as she has unpredictable dog aggression issues. A fenced yard would be good too, to help avoid any trouble with other dogs. Her foster mom does not take her anywhere that she knows there will be other dogs to try and control the issue. She is also very careful on walks and so far has not had any additional problems.  While she doesn’t get along with other dogs, she is a very sweet girl that gets along with every human she meets...  Bette is ready for her furever home, and she is waiting for you!

BIO:

 

Sophia is a very sweet, well-mannered bullie girl. She is good with all other dogs she's met. She does great with her foster family's five year old son and his friends. Her foster family also has cats and she mostly does well with them, although she is tempted to chase them when they run around too much! But it's all fun for her.

 

Sophia is crate trained and house trained. She is a happy girl who just follows her people around everywhere and when she wags her tail, her whole body wags! She would love nothing more than to find her forever home. Is it you?

BIO:

 

Lola Hope is a sweet, petite, loving bullie girl with lots of love to give. Like most bullies, she sleeps a lot but also enjoys short walks. She chews on Nylabones but hasn't really taken a liking to any other toys so far.

 

Lola Hope loves to be with people and so far has been pretty easy-going when it comes to other dogs. Her former owner said she was not good with cats, but she has not been around them in rescue.

 

Lola Hope's foster mom wanted to relay how the Vet best explained her heart condition, if that might help with understanding the situation. Her heart is like a golf cart. It doesn't matter how hard you bury the pedal to the floor, the golf cart will only go so fast. The same with Lola Hope's heart, it will only beat so fast no matter how fast she walks/trots. She has not been spayed due to the heart condition, so she will need to be extra protected during heat season and will probably need to wear a diaper. She has not been spayed due to the heart condition. 

 

UPDATES: 

 

Lola Hope has blossomed in her foster home.  She has taken ownership of some things and is not afraid to let her deaf foster sister know when enough is enough.  Lola Hope has even learned some of the hand signals used with her foster sister and can now sit and lay down on command. Her personality shows through more and more each month, and she has proven to be just a little bit sassy. Even though Lola Hope has a heart condition, she still has a spring in her step and enjoys walks. She has a certain swagger to her step that captivates everyone she meets. Lola Hope may not be a candidate for a pacemaker and we may not know which will be the day her heart stops working. But we never really know that for ourselves either, so love as much as you can every day... and consider adopting Lola Hope to share that daily love!

 

As for additional health updates, Lola Hope visited the vet early in the summer to have a large, squishy mass near her groin checked out. Initially, surgery was discussed, but after weighing the factors including her heart condition her file was reviewed. It was decided she is not a candidate for surgery unless it is a life or death situation. Lola Hope has gained a little bit of weight, which is a good thing, though her eating habits aren’t conventional and she sometimes skips meals, while cleaning the bowl other times.

 

Lola Hope really loves being around people and has enjoyed meeting folks out at recent events and longs for her forever home.  She likes everyone, but will gravitate to men as she was previously owned by a man. She is lazy enough for a laid back family and spunky enough for a more active family.  She will not be a runner, but she has plenty of swagger in her walking stride! As the folks that have spent time with her at events would tell you, one would never guess she has a heart condition so please don't let that deter anyone from adding Lola Hope to your pack.  She has so much love to give so don’t miss out!
