Dogs Available for Adoption

Jack



ADOPTION PENDING!!!

Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Jack.  This cutie is a 2 year old Beagle/Dachshund weighing 18lbs.  He has short hair and was an owner surrender due to his owner's poor health.

Jack is as adorable in person as he looks in his photos.  He's a very good boy who loves being around the family.  He enjoys the company of other dogs.  We do not know how he is with cats. 

The one thing Jack hates is bring crated. He will go in one to be fed but that's it.  He wants out right after.  That's okay, he is housebroken and paper trained and has not been destructive in his foster home at all.  He will need a coat in the cold weather due to his short hair.  He has a lovely temperament, very gentle and loving.  He will do best allowed to sleep on someone's bed at night.  Jack loves children and is gentle with all.  

This little guy is fed twice daily a small breed adult food.  He rides very well in the car.  A body harness and lead are the ideal hardware for walks ng any hound.  He will never be able to be off leash in non fully fenced area as he will be off following his nose due to his breed mix.  

The ideal home for Jack is one with another dog to keep him company as they are known to have separation anxiety.  Two walks aday will suffice for this little guy.

Jack is neutered, fully vaccinated, 4dx tested negative, dewormed and on heartHear and flea prevention.  Jack is also microchipped.

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

Cinnamon



Barks and Meows Rescue introduces darling Cinnamon.    She is a 1 year old Shiba Inu mix, 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 heartHeartworm and flea prevention as well as microchipped.

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

Petunia


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

Petunia is just a wonderful Boxer gal.  She passed 8 weeks of training in the Barkburn, A new leash on life prison training program.  She know knows sit, stay, leave it, come, down, off and watch.   She comes with her certificate of completion and the hand signals used.  This training uses treat rewards for their methods. 

Petunia does well with other dogs but the shelter doesn't believe she would be good with cats.  She adores children.  She wagged her tail so much atat it got infected, from banging against solid objects.  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, a minimum of 6 feet high is a requirement.  She is a mid to low energy girl.  She does quite well in the vehicle but will require further leash/body harness training.  Petunia is very loving and quiet.  Loyal and family oriented, typical of het breed.

The ideal home for her is one where the family is home a fair amount.  She will require some off leash running time each day.  Once she is leash trained, she would make a good jogging partner but not in the hot weather.

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

A fully fenced yard, minimum ,6 feet wooden, and a Veterinarian history of compliance is mandatory in order to apply for Petunia.

Hoss



Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Hoss.  He is an 82lb Mastiff mix, perhaps mixed with a smooth coat Sharpei.  He is 5 years old.  He was an owner surrender as 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 bond with them within a few days.  He is housebroken and crated at night only because he is in a multiple dog foster home.  He would love to lay on a doggie bed in someones room with them.  He eats twice daily in his crate.  He 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 doesn't like cats according to the shelter. Hoss has very 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 calms 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.  Cuddletime and watchng movies with Popcorn, he is up for the challenge.    

The ideal home for Hoss is one with large dog experience.  Due to bring surrendered he will need consistency in his and his family's routine.  He has had so much upheaval that just a typical family lifestyle will suit him just fine.  The family must sign up for Obedience training asap.   Hoss will not do well being left alone too long during the day.  

Hoss is neutered, up to date with vaccines, dewormed, heartworm tested negative and on flea prevention.

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

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


Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Tawny.  We believe she may be a Great Pyrenees/Great Dane.  She is a beautiful 3 year old, weighing in at 70 lbs.  She has double dew claws on the back of her feet and has a medium length coat.

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

Tawny is very gentle despite her size.  She takes treats very gently and loves children.  Tawny loves to be hugged and cuddled and will give back gentle kisses.   She gets along well with the other dogs in the foster home.  Tawny is housebroken and crate trained.  She does quite well tethered in the vehicle.

We believe the ideal home is one where she gets a lot of family attention.  Another large, very playful resident dog, a fully fenced yard (minimum 6 feet high wood) and a history of Veterinarian compliance Is mandatory in order to apply for for our Tawny.  A body harness will be required in order to walk her and she is too strong and tall to be walked by a child.

Tawny is spayed, up to date with vaccines, Heartworm Tested negative and on flea and heartworm prevention.

Gracie


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

Gracie is a loving gal.  She is great with other dogs and children.  She does best in a cat free home.  She loves to play with everyone in the family.  Gracie is crate trained and crated only when her foster family is out of the home.  She is very smart and longs to be cuddled as often as possible.  She sleeps in her doggie bed beside her foster parents bed.

Gracie has a huge appetite so her food is measured out twice daily.  She is fully housebroken and rides extremely well in a vehicle.  She still needs practice walking with a body harness but it will come with time.  She is very strong so could not be walked by a child.  This sweetie is not a noisy dog.  She is food motivated making training so much easier.  She knows her basic commands.

The ideal home for Gracie is one where family members are at home a lot.  Preference will be given to those applicants with another well socialized resident dog.  Gracie is a mid energy dog.
