Dogs Available for Adoption

Zane



Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Zane.  He is a 3 year old beagle, 26.5lbs with medium length fur.  He was found as a stray and brought to the shelter.

Zane is a happy go lucky guy.  He is nice and quiet, quite calm, affectionate.  He is easy going and his manners are very good unless he catches the scent of food on the counter!  Typical beagle will follow his nose and is very food motivated.  He is a gentle boy who takes treats very gently from your hand.  He is great with children and dogs.   Zane does well with cats. 

Zane is excellent in the vehicle.  He is crated at night but doesn't need to be.  He has not been destructive in his foster home and is fed twice daily.

The ideal home for Zane would one where he gets two walks a day.  A family who had time for him and we believe he really would excel in obedience class as he is so food motivated and wants to please.  Preference will be given to those applicants who have another resident socialized dog.

A fully fenced yard and a Veterinarian history of compliance is mandatory in order to apply for Zane.

Brownie



ADOPTION PENDING!!!

Barks and Meows introduces our lovely Brownie.  She is a Boxer/Plott Hound mix.  Brownie is 10 months old and weighs 40lb. She has a short hair coat and was an owner surrender.  The family said they didn't have the time to train her.

Brownie is a very loving gal.  She is still a big pup.   She will need a patient family to teach her the basics.  She is food motivated so that will help and has proven beneficial.    She is in the chewing stage so should be crated when the family is not home and at night.  She is her foster family's shadow so doesn't like to be left alone too long. She enjoys playing with other dogs but can be loud and play a bit rough.

Housebreaking is a work in progress.  She loves her toys and requires many to help her through her chewing stage.  She is a bit mouthy when excited so positive reinforcement and redirection to a toy will help get her out of this stage.  She adores the children in the home and vice versa.  She readily accepts their hugs and kisses.  Cuddle time is great once she is all pooped out.  She is currently a high energy dog.  She will really benefit from obedience classes and continued socialization.  She will willingly smother you with kisses, with her tail wagging the whole time.  Brownie is fed twice daily snd is on puppy food.  

She should be taken out for three walks a day.  She loves going for walks snd gets so excited.  She is a bit timid of new people and situations so continued desensitization will make all the difference.  Playing fetch is her favorite activity.  

The Ideal home for Brownie is one where the family has and makes the time, to complete her training.  An active family that includes her in their activities will be important.  Another resident dog would be fine but one who likes to wrestle and is at least the same size as her.

Baby girl Brownie is spayed, up to date with vaccines, 4dx tested, dewormed and microchipped.

A fully fenced yard and a Veterinarian history of compliance is mandatory in order to apply for Brownie.

Big Red's former owners told the shelter that he is good with kids and dogs.  Yes we can attest to that.  We don't know if he is good with cats but we believe he would be.  His temperament is wonderful.  Big Red will require regular grooming but is a good boy for the groomer.  He is housebroken.  He does love his food but his food is measured now twice daily.  Big Red does not require crating.  Big Red is excellent in the vehicle.

Finley



ADOPTION PENDING!! 


Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Finley.  He is a Boxer/Bullmastiff mix.  He is 1 year old and 82lbs.  He has a short hair coat.  He was surrendered to the shelter as his family had no time for him anymore.

This boy is just a big old love bug.  He truly is a gentle giant.  This is the most well behaved and gentle dog, we have ever had in our Rescue!  He is loving and very quiet.  He's housebroken, clean and very well behaved. Finley sleeps on a doggie bed in his foster parents room.    

Finley is a low energy dog, regardless of his age.  He goes with the flow, is not destructive,  and requires no crating ever!  He loves children and  is excellent with other dogs.  Finley rides well in the vehicle and walks well on the leash.   This boy is too good to be true.  We do not know how he is with cats.  The only thing that Finley will need reminding of, not to jump up and give hugs to people when he is excited.  

An ideal home for Finley would be one with children, and or another dog, where he can be an active part of the family.  He is still growing so will require a body harness when walking him.

Issac



Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Issac.  He is a Blue Heeler mix.  This darling boy is 4 years old and weighs 45lbs.  He has a medium length coat and a docked tail.  Issac was found as a stray.

Issac is very typical of the cattle dog breed.  He is good with other dogs, as long as they don't get into his face.  He is very family oriented and we can see he is missing his previously family but no one ever claimed him.   He is good with children but we would recommend older children, those who will understand that this breed doesn't like to have them in their face.  He is loyal and loves to be around all family members.  Issac is quiet and barks only if there is a reason.  He is housebroken and does not need a crate.  He is not destructive in the home.  

Issac is very smart and learns quickly. He is not a big eater and tends to be fussy.  We think that his previous family most likely fed him table scraps so he is getting used to eating a high quality commercial dry dog food.  He likes being outdoors but not by himself.  He enjoys company.
He walks well on a body harness and lead.  He does well in the car but tends to get carsick so best he travel on an empty stomach.  He us very sweet and gives gentle kisses.  He takes treats nicely from your hand.  Issac does not like cats.

Issac's ideal home is a fairly quiet one.  This breed does better with a calm home life.  He would love to go for long walks and hikes.  He will bond quite quickly with his family.  

Issac is neutered, fully vaccinated, 4dx tested negative, dewormed, on heartworm and flea/tick prevention and microchipped.

A fully fenced yard and a Veterinarian history of compliance is mandatory in order to apply for our Issac.  If an applicant has a far property we will consider those as well.

Stella


Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Stella.  We believe she is a wonderful mix of pointer/hound.
Stella is 8 months old and has a short hair coat. She weighs 42lbs .  She was surrendered to the high kill shelter by her owners as she was too active for them.  

Stella is a super sweet dog.  She has zero aggression tendencies.  She is very quiet, which she gets from her Pointer mix traits.  She is only vocal sometimes when playing with the other dogs.  She loves all dogs, regardless of size, sex or age.  She is not a bully at all.  The shelter tested her with cats and she does not like them.  

Stella is very affectionate and will kiss everyone for as long as you let her.  She is timid at first but within 24 hours she gained trust of her foster family.  Stella is incredibly gentle, slightly hand shy.  She loves cuddles.  She has the appetite of a hound so her food is measured out twice daily.

This gal came into our care housebroken.  She loves to play outside, though will need a coat in the cooler weather because of her short coat.  Stella is very good in the vehicle.  She is apprehensive on a leash so we don't believe she had much exposure to it.  We recommend a body harness and a lead for any of our dogs for full control.  She is crate trained but doesn't require one.

The ideal family is one where she is given the time and patience to trust and train with her daily.  She won't be able to be walked by a child as being a hound she will have a prey drive.   Children will be ideal but perhaps older ones would be best.  Younger children can be loud at times when excited, which might frighten her.  Priority will be given to those applicants with another socialized resident canine.     

Stella is spayed, 4DX tested negative, fully vaccinated, on heartworm and on flea prevention.  She is also microchipped.

A fully fenced yard and a Veterinarian history of compliance is mandatory in order to apply for Stella.

Tawny was found as a stray.  She has a lovely temperament.  She enjoys playing with other dogs immensely.  She is amid energy dog asking asshe gets enough playtime with other dogs.  If she doesn't get playtime with it her pooches, she will dug iut if boredom.  If she sees a squirrel, her energy level magically changes to one that us high level!  She will try anything to get at them  so it is for this reason we would not trust her with cats.
