Bunny (DOB 6/12/18) is a sweet girl filled with boundless energy.  Bunny has a very happy, loving personality.  She approaches people somewhat submissively, but after a few seconds, is all about petting and play.  She loves to get the zoomies with her people and playmates.  She is learning about bones and toys.  Bunny doesn't fully understand manners when meeting other dogs, since the instant she sees them, she is all over them wanting to play.  She has done well with males and females, but cats are not a good match, as she gets over-excited, wants to play rough, and really doesn't understand "kitty no."  She probably should go to a home with school-age children (6+) for these same reasons. She has not had any training, and is very busy but tractable on lead. She does lack socialization, and may be afraid of new things, but has been very adaptable in the local coordinator's home. Given her energy, a fenced yard to play and burn off energy is a MUST.  She is VERY loving and responsive, and should train quickly. She is largely housebroken if given frequent trips out, but is still working on not soiling her cage. She has not mastered flights of stairs.  She has been spayed, has had a dental, is fully up to date on vaccinations, and has been given a 1-year heartworm preventive injection.  All she needs is a loving owner to spend the rest of her life with.  If you think that is you,  please click here to fill out an application to adopt


Chica (DOB 3/24/15) is one of the recent puppy mill surrender dogs.  She suffered from masticatory muscle myositis (MMM), an auto immune disease, which seriously damaged the muscles in her head and jaws.  The disease is not active and she should have a normal lifespan, but will need to be monitored for reoccurrence.  It is easier for her to eat softened food.  As a result of the disease, which was intensely painful, and her deprived life in a small cage, she is very shy and can be fearful.  She always leaves herself an escape route, even when approaching for petting, and may startle and run if unexpectedly touched or if she feels trapped.  This has been improving after a short time in a foster home.  After she develops comfort and trust in her new home, she readily approaches for petting (which she adores) and treats.  She loves small antlers and stuffies, and is very enthusiastic about meals, which she demands with her cute, yipping bark.  She is housebroken.  She signals by pacing near the door, and benefits from several trips out.  She readily cages, expecting a treat.  While it may be difficult to get the lead on her, she is compliant when on it, and rides well.  Picking her up causes near panic, but she is improving.  She has not learned long flights of stairs yet.  She has been very good with all dogs and cats she has met, and would really benefit from presence of other dogs, with proper introductions.  She likes the company, it lends her confidence, and she cues behavior from her companions.  She occasionally will also play, although she is just learning how, and frightens if it gets rough.  She would not do well in a home with small, noisy or very active children.  She needs a fenced yard.  She has a truly sweet, happy personality and desperately wants a home to grow to her full potential, and is just as cute as she can be!  Chica is fully up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, received a one-year ProHeart heart worm preventive, has had a dental, and will come with her cage and bed. She is a truly deserving sweetheart!  All she lacks is a home to call her own with a fenced yard to explore.  If you think it could be with you,  please click here to fill out an application to adopt



Dali (DOB 10/1/2013) is a sweet senior girl who had been bounced around four homes by eight months old with her brother. Due to her lack of socialization, major issues of behavior, and high anxiety levels, she was placed into the JNMRF Forever Foster program in July, 2014, where she had remained until a catastrophic change in situation there caused her to be placed in boarding in early March. She is not doing well in boarding, and urgently needs a foster or adoptive home.
Over the course of time, Dali became a loving house dog. She adores petting and will cuddle endlessly, pawing for more petting. She is house- and crate-trained, loves riding, fully housebroken, and can be left loose in the house for several hours if given a potty break beforehand, or can be crated. She does very well at the vet and for grooming, and adores having her coat blown out with a high-speed blower, leaping onto a grooming table. She occasionally likes to share her people’s bed, but is very considerate, and will get down if asked. She is decent on lead, knows basic commands (sit, down, shake, etc.), and when begging for treats, is quite polite. She gives joyous greetings to her people, spinning, play bowing, and sometimes standing up and leaning on the person for pets and loving, and will dole out occasional kisses. She needs a fenced yard where other dogs will not antagonize her or create anxiety. She is good with school-age children who know how to behave with dogs, seemed indifferent to cats when tested, but has several fear-related issues. She always has an anxious expression.
She is deathly afraid of storms, may startle with sudden loud sounds, and is anxious or fearful of wind beyond a very light breeze. Fireworks utterly terrify her. Her greatest shortcoming is she is very female dog-aggressive, and can be fear-aggressive with overly active male dogs or dogs with whom she has not been properly introduced. In her foster home, she benefitted from the company of several calm males, after proper, careful, slow introductions. She should be in a home with only a calm male or two, or an only dog.
Dali is up to date on all vaccinations, HW preventive, flea and tick protection, is spayed and microchipped. She has no known health conditions, and will take her cage and bed with her to her new home.
If Dali might be your next best friend, please

Nora (DOB 9/13/16) is a petite girl, 16” tall and weighs about 35 lbs.   Despite her small statue, she has a  huge love of life and a real sweet temperament.  She is crate trained, housebroken, and is learning basic commands.  She knows sit, down, touch, having been clicker trained for these commands.  She has accepted life inside with crowds of people of various ages, and her 2 elkhound hosts have given her confidence in dog language. 
cat at her foster home loves to play with the elkies but Nora has a fear of this strange being.  Walking next to the cat has gotten Nora bopped on her hindquarters so Nora gives the cat wide berth.   
She has overcome many fears due to her limited life experience as a puppymill breeder dog.  She shows true elkie intelligence, and she enjoys a chin scratch and conversation.  She is a fairly quiet girl, only occasionally barking to go outside.  Nora enjoys inside life and is unhappy if left alone outside for extended times.
She is spayed, up to date on shots, heartworm treatment (the annual preventative shot), flea and tick meds.  Her coat is so soft, you want to run your hands over it, a true comfort to her and you.  If Nora might be your next best friend, please click here to fill out an application to adopt her.  She's looking forward to meeting you!
