Dogs Available for Adoption

Juno



Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Juno.  Our big fella is just over 1 year old and is a 80lb American Bulldog.  He has a short hair coat and was an owner surrender.

Both Juno and his sister were surrendered to a local shelter when the wife's health deteriorated.  The family realized that 2 large dogs were not right for their home while the wife wasn't well.  His sister has since been adopted and now Juno is ready for his new home.  

Juno is excellent with children as his previous family had children, the youngest being 3  He is great with other dogs.  He was purchased from a breeder by his previous family.  He is crate trained but it's not required in his foster home.  He is fully housebroken.  Juno is a low energy dog.  He loves being around the family.  Car rides are his favorite thing and he is excellent in the vehicle.

Juno has never been around cats.  He loves going on walks but definitely needs work.  He is incredibly strong and a body harness works the best.    He is a big baby and loves attention.  He doesn't get jealous of the other dogs in the foster home getting attention.  He is allowed on the furniture and cuddling with his family members.  He will bark when someone's at the door but calms down as soon as he is told to do so.

We are very partial to this breed mix and believe they are one of the best family dogs for a family.  They bond very quickly with all.  The ideal home 
for Juno is definitely with another well socialzed large dog to keep him complete.  He has been with dogs entire life so would definitely have severe seperation anxiety without one.  It must be a cat free home.  A family with large breed experience is important.

Juno is neutered, up to date with vaccines, 4dx tested negative, dewormed and on hw/flea/tick prevention.  He is also microchipped. 

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

Shortbread



Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Shortbread.  She is a 33lb hound mix born on Nov 21/17.  She has medium length fur.  

Shortbread was one of the pups born to us to Mommy Desilu.  She was adopted to a family that had a horse farm.  Recently we received notification from her family that they needed to return her as she was getting into fights with their senior female dog.  She had been fixed so we knew that was not the problem.   

Shortbread arrived back in our care and it was obvious she had a lot of freedom on the farm, with not many boundaries being set.  She was yearning for physical contact and it showed that she felt the other dogs were a threat to the attention she wanted.  Shortbread had no clue how to play with another dog.  The foster homes dogs had to teach her to play and not feel threatened.  Now she plays with the others dog's and there hasn't been any issues with the dogs she chooses as playmates.  She tries to boss the others but it's fruitless.  She knows she is bottom of the pack so if she wants attention from the family she can come up to them and receive as much as she wants.    She still gets jealous if another dog comes for attention but having another person around, so both dogs receive love at the same time,  has worked wonderfully.

Shortbread loves children.  She has a healthy appetite and is a mid energy dog.  She is very good in the car.  She will need work on a leash and body harness but she likes to be out and about.  She is still a puppy in the adolescent stage.  She is very smart and would do well in obedience training.  She comes when called and can sit and stay on command.  This sweetie is fully housebroken and non destructive in the home so not crated.  She adores curling and curling up up on the family's lap.

The ideal home for Shortbread would be one where various family members exist and whereby their schedules are such that she is not left alone long.  A resident male dog would be fine but not one that is passive.  She will bond quickly with a male canine.  A cat free home is needed as we don't know how she is with cats.

Shortbread is spayed, fully vaccinated, 4dx tested negative, dewormed and on Heartworm and flea prevention.

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

Molly


Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Molly.  She is a 4 year old Jack Russell Mix.  She and Chloe (now Mommy Chloe), were rescued from a hoarding situation.  She has medium length fur and weighs 25lbs.

Molly is very sweet and loves to be with her family.   She is affectionate and attentive.  She is good with other dogs but prefers the company of other dogs.  She is a low energy dog, with one big walk a day, making her a happy camper.  

She does well with calm children, older ones would be best, as she likes low energy family members.  Molly need not be crated as she is not destructive in the home and is fully housebroken. She is also paper trained.

Molly is not a big eater.  She prefers canned food mixed in with her dry.  She is on small breed adult dog food.  Molly rides very well in the vehicle with no crate required.  She loves to sleep with a family member but will sleep on the furniture if need be.  Molly is very quiet for a Jack Russell Mix, so that's a bonus.

The ideal home for Molly would be one with another well socialized  small dog.  She is not a big player but enjoys romping around in the yard with other dogs.  We do not know how she is with cats, so a cat free home is best.

Molly is spayed, up to date with vaccines, 4dx tested negative,n dewormed and on Heartworm Flea/Prevention.

Delta has grown into just a lovely, darling little girl.  She is a low energy girl, just one of the many hound traits she possesses.  She has long beautiful velvety hound ears, is very food motivated, big hound feet and is extremely loving.  She is wonderful with all dogs.  She's very quiet, even when playing with another dog.  Delta dies not have a hound bark.  She has a long muzzle like the bull terrier, which is much more obvious in person.

Gracie


Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Gracie.  She is a 2 year old Boxer/Black Mouth Cur Mix.  She weighs 54lbs and had a medium length hair coat.  She was rescued as a stray, already pregnant, from a high kill shelter.

Poor Gracie was adopted in January with a family with a male dog who was quite social.  Gracie has been excellent in her foster home with other dogs but unfortunately,  picked on her new fur brother.  Her previous family said she seemed jealous of him and wanted to show she was  the alpha.  Obviously everyone was so upset that her behaviour was not changing. It was best that Gracie find a different type of family dynamic, perhaps as an only dog.  Though she is great with various dogs in the foster home, she will require to be the only dog in the home. She is mid to high energy so she will get bored quickly so lots of stimulus is going to be important.  She was protective of her owners on mleash so socializing with other dogs will need to continue but off leash.  True to her breed, she can be stubborn so a dog saavy family who is willing to show her they are in charge is important.  

Gracie is very loving with people and children.  She would do best in a cat free home.  She loves to play with everyone in the home. Gracie is crate trained and crated when the family is out of the home.  She is very smart and yearns to be cuddled as much as possible.  She sleeps in her doggie bed or couch at night time.  

Gracie has a huge appetite so get food is measured out twice daily.  She is fully housebroken and rides excellently in the car.  She requires more work walking in a body harness and lead but that will come with practice.  This sweetie is not a noisy dog.  She food motivated making training so much easier.
She knows her basic commands.

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

Petunia


Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Petunia.  She is an 18 month old Boxer weighing 48lbs. Petunia was found as a stray and has a short hair coat.  

Petunia is just a wonderful Boxer gal.  She passed 8 weeks of training in the New Leash on Life, prison training program.  She knows sit, stay, leave it, come, down, off and watch. She comes with a certificate of completion and a booklet on the hand signals used. This training yards treat rewards as their methods.  

Petunia does well with most other dogs But has a prey drive do does not do well with cats.  She adores children.  She wagged her tail so much at the shelter that it got infected, from banging against the walls.  She had to have her tail amputated and now can wag it as much as she wants.  

She is housebroken and has a very good appetite.  She is fed twice daily.  Petunia is crate trained but doesn't require it in her current foster home.  She is known to be a fence jumper so a solid wooden fence, minimum 6 feet high, is a requirement.  She is a mid energy girl.  She does quite well in the vehicle, but requires further leash/body harness training.  Petunia is very loving and quiet.  Loyal and family oriented, typical of her breed.

The ideal home is one where the family is home a fair amount due to her age.  She will require some off leash running each day.  A good size yard is important for this activity.  Once she is leash trained she would make a good jogging partner but not in the hot weather.

Petunia is spayed, fully vaccinated, dewormed, heartworm tested negative and microchipped.

Hoss



ADOPTION PENDING!!!


Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Hoss.  He is an 82lb Mastiff mix, perhaps with a smooth coat Sharpei.  He is 5 years old.  He was an owner surrender as his family was moving and couldn't take him with them.

Hoss is a very loving guy.  Big head and barrel chested, just right for hugs.  Hoss will be very loyal to his family and will be with them within a few days.  He is housebroken but crated when the family is out.  He would love to lay on a doggie bed at night in a family member's room.  He eats twice a day in his crate and is a mid energy dog.  He is very strong on a leash so will require a body harness and lead.   He is a happy guy.   
          
Hoss is good with most dogs but is an alpha male.  He doesnt like cats according to the shelter. Hoss has good recall and will sit on command.   He will benefit from basic obedience training.  This fellow is food motivated which will help with additional training.  Once he gets over the initial excitement of getting to ride in the car, he settles down nicely.

Hoss really loves children.  He must miss his previous family so much.  He loves to be with the family as much as possible.  Cuddle time and watching movies with popcorn?  He's up for the challenge. 
 
The ideal home is one with large dog experience.
Due to being surrendered, he will need consistency in his and his family's routine.  He has had so much upheaval, that a typical family lifestyle would suit him just fine.  Hoss will not do well being left alone too long during the day. 

Hoss is neutered, up to date with vaccines, heartworm tested negative.

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

Cinnamon



Barks and Meows Rescue introduces darling Cinnamon.    She is a 1 year old Husky/Chow, weighing 50lbs.  She has a medium length hair coat.  Cinnamon was found as a stray.

This gal is so pretty in person.  Her eyes are memerizing.  She was so very scared and fearful when she first arrived at the shelter.  The staff at the shelter worked with her diligently and it certainly paid off.  Once she arrived in our foster care she was a different dog.  Cinnamon didn't take long to feel comfortable in the foster home.  Having other dogs in the home definitely helped with her confidence.  She is affectionate and focused.  The only fear she still has seems to be having a lead on.  This will come with practice.  She most likely was dog that was tied up outside.   
Cinnamon has just beautiful soft fur, not thick.  She is fully housebroken.  She loves to play with other dogs but plays quite hard.  She does best with medium to large size dogs as a playmate.  The shelter tested her with cats and she was indifferent to them.  They believe she may chase to play with them and not hurt them.  Knowing this we think a cat free home is best.    

Cinnamon will sit and give a paw.  She loves people but will bark when someone is at the door.  She loves children and takes to them instantly.  She rides well in the vehicle.     

The ideal home for this moderately active gal is one where she gets to participate in outdoor activites.  Playing Fetch, walks, hikes, cottage life.      

Cinnamon is spayed, fully vaccinated, heartworm tested negative, on Heartworm and flea prevention as well as microchipped.

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

Stella


Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Stella.  We believe she is a wonderful mix of pointer/hound.
Stella is just over a year 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.  She is a high energy dog and very athletic.  She would excel in flyball or agility.

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 three times 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.
