Vespa is about 3 to 4 years old, spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
Vespa is an independent dog. She‘s very mellow and easy to care for. She is a loyal
dog who is friendly with everyone she meets, although she has never been tested with kids, only adults.
When Vespa hangs out in the office, she enjoys playing with her toys. She walks very well on a leash and does not
pull. She is extremely food motivated, well trained, and house broken. She is not fond of other dogs, but she is not dog reactive when
they pass by.
Vespa is in Westchester, NY and is looking for a furever home. If you are interested in adopting Vespa or need more information, please call the SPCA of Westchester at 914-941-2896 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bella is an adorable, three year old, spayed female. Bella‘s owner is looking for a new home for her.

Bella is in Richmond, VA. If you are interested in Bella please e-mail email@example.com.
Have you been holding out for a hero? Well, Thor may not actually be the god of thunder, but he sure is a sweet, handsome puppy.
Thor is about ten months and weighs about 50 pounds. He had a bit of a rough start to life,
but now he's being treated for his demodex (a non-contagious type of mange) and being socialized.
Thor does well in the car and at the vet. He is great with every dog he meets, even the ones who aren't great with dogs themselves,
and quickly befriends them and asks to play. As far as cats, well, he bows at them and asks to play too; but he will lay down and just look
pitiful until they give in and come over to him. Thor is now in a foster home, where he is becoming more confident with every day. He is
sometimes afraid of strangers and new situations, but a treat fixes that right away as well as trust in his caretaker.
It doesn't take long for him to bond at all. His rescuers think he would be most comfortable in a house with another
dog to get some confidence from--plus, he's just a puppy and loves to play!
Thor has a basic training foundation, the beginnings of crate-training, and is housebroken. Thor is up to date on vaccines, neutered, and microchipped.
Thor is in Richmond, VA. If you are interested in Thor please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

Sharpei (yes, that is his name) is a three year old male Shar-Pei. He is a nice boy but does not like to have his
ears touched. Sharpei is looking for a home
where he can be the only dog and give and get all of the lovings.
Sharpei is in Hilton Head, SC. If you are interested in Sharpei please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 843-681-8686.
Mimi is a free agent! For entirely too long Mimi has been sitting on the sidelines waiting
to find a coach who will make her the all-star that her friends at Pennsylvania SPCA know
she can be! Over a year ago Mimi
came into the Pennsylvania SPCA facility with her pups, and all those rookies found their
way to a new team but Mimi
was left behind. Mimi hasn‘t let that effect her training though. Mimi is in great
shape and loves
to run and even does a bit of agility work in the training yard. She‘s not adverse
to hard work,
and she‘s already used to eating a special diet so there are no worries that Mimi won‘t
be in shape.
Mimi just needs someone to give her direction, training and a sense of belonging. Mimi used to
get over excited in the kennels and accidentally nipped someone who had his fingers through the
gate, and that has made many teams pass her by. Mimi takes some time to warm up to new people;
but once she does, she‘s by your side like you would want your teammate to be. If you think
you might be the coach she is looking for and if your team soes not have any small children,
please contact the Pennsylvania SPCA to meet Mimi.
Mimi is 4-5 years old and 46 lbs. She is at the Pennsylvania SPCA in Philadelphia, PA. If you are interested in Mimi, please e-mail email@example.com.
Gemma is a two year old shar-pei/pug mix that sadly has been bounced around through three different homes. Originally purchased from the pet store for a large amount of money, her owners had a baby and started to leave Gemma outside. Once the weather became cold, a family member felt bad for Gemma and took her home; but there were allergies in that home. Gemma‘s third home came to an end when they were moving to a place that did not allow animals. So, now Gemma sits waiting at the Jersey Shore Animal Shelter for what she hopes will be a forever family.
Gemma recently had her double eye surgery, as well as the cherry eye surgery, and she also got spayed. Gemma looks great and can finally see without being in pain! The vet did say that unfortunately she will need to be on a lifetime of eye meds because she was born without a natural tear production. She cannot produce tears on her own to help keep her eyes lubricated which can lead to other problems. Please do not let that affect your decision on giving this sweet girl a 4th chance! She deserves a loving home that will understand her medical needs and to show her love that she has not experienced.
Gemma would do best as the only pet. Jersey Shore Animal Center is unsure of her house breaking status, and she could use some obedience training. They are looking for a family with dog experience for their sweet Gemma. (Kids 10+)
Gemma is at the Jersey Shore Animal Center in Brick, NJ. If you are interested in Gemma, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hi there! My name is Ruger, but my foster mom calls me Buddha. She enjoys my playful nature and gentle kisses,
but wants to tell you a little more about me, so I might be lucky enough to find a furever home that I can call my very own...
Buddha is a young, sweet, and playful Shar-Pei mix (the vets think he has some lab in him) that loves his people more than any foster I‘ve had. He‘s true to the Shar-Pei breed, and extremely loyal! He‘s a low to medium energy dog that is best behaved when he gets a short walk or little exercise each day, but he doesn't need much. He‘s house trained, crate trained, knows basic commands, and has never torn anything up in our home; but he‘s crated when we‘re not there. He loves bones and rawhides and running after sticks! Buddha has gotten along with every dog he‘s met, with proper introductions. He currently lives in a home with three older dogs and is quite the respectful younger foster brother and takes corrections well. However, he does show some leash reactivity around other dogs, and will need ongoing leash work. I‘ve also seen him assert more dominance with younger dogs, but is easily corrected when needed. We don‘t have children or cats, so it‘s hard to say how he would do in a home with cats or kids, but he seems very curious around small children and may do better in a home with older children. Buddha loves car rides, and we take him to work and run errands as often as we can. He‘s protective of us though, especially when he's in the car and can be skeptical of new men. He‘s food motivated which makes him easily trainable and the more socialization he's had, the more trusting he's become. He‘s blossoming into a wonderful dog, and I want so badly for him to find the right home that is permanent so he can continue to learn how to be the best dog ever!
Buddha is in Raleigh, NC . If you are interested in Buddah, please e-mail email@example.com or look him up on dogwarriorsrescue.com.
Tori is a 5 year old Sharpei / Yellow Lab mix. She had lived her whole life in North Carolina with 7 other dogs at the residence of an older single woman.
Unfortunately for Tori, her owner's health was failing and she had to be placed in a retirement home, displacing Tori and all of her other housemates.
The rest of Tori's previous housemates have been rehomed but sadly she has not found her new forever home yet.
Tori now resides in Richmond, Virginia in a temporary living situation at Locke A. Taylor, DVM Inc. She is spayed and has up to date vaccinations.
Tori is cautious, shy, quiet, and sweet. She is used to living with other dogs, but would also enjoy being the only dog in the home. She responds well to slow movements and gentle words. She would be best placed into a home without children, or with older children who understand shy dogs. She would love for her new owner to be calm and patient and willing to work with her to make her feel safe and happy in her new home.
If you are interested in Tori, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call Debbi Sue at 804-615-3944.
