Shelter Sunday: Nikko / First State Animal Shelter and SPCA / Camden, DE

Nikko DE

Meet Nikko! This handsome fellow is house-trained and prefers a home without other dogs or cats. Here’s what his rescuers have to say about him:

If you are looking for a wonderful companion come meet Nikko. He is a very vocal dog like all Siberian Huskies. Owning a Husky is big responsibility and shouldn’t be taken lightly. He needs to go to a home that is familiar with his breed and can handle his strong mind. Nikko loves belly rubs and is a very friendly boy. Nikko was adopted, but unfortunately his previous owner was not the most responsible. He was brought to animal control and thank goodness he found his way back to us in order to help him find a new stable and loving home.

Nikko is currently a guest at First State Animal Shelter and SPCA in Camden, Delaware. If you’re lucky enough to be nearby, why not contact the shelter to learn more about Nikko and all of his friends. You can email [email protected] or call (302) 943-6032.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Shelter Sunday: Daisy / Dog Star Rescue / Bloomfield, CT

Daisy CT

Meet Daisy! This senior citizen prefers a home without young children. Here’s what her rescuers have to say about her: If you can imagine yourself with a sweet and loving canine companion, Daisy is a dog for you. Our Miss Daisy is a Fox Hound mix, around 7 years old and weighing approximately 75 pounds. She is a big girl but also has a big heart with a capacity to bring joy to her loved ones. Her sweetness is undeniable and she is sure to be on your best friends list.

Our Daisy is not a girl that likes to live in the fast lane. For her, it is slow and easy with her low energy level. She’d much rather be a spectator in life and watch from the side lines. Daisy is not a stranger to enjoying the outdoors as she enjoys going for hikes and is even a fan of snow. After a day of exploring, Daisy looks forward to resting her head and taking a well deserved nap. She gets along well with other dogs and adults but would do best in a house with older children around the age of 16 or older. She has not had the opportunity to be introduced to a cat.

Shelter Sunday: Chuck / One Hound At A Time / Colorado Springs, CO

Chuck CO

Meet Chuck! This handsome fella is house-trained, good with other dogs, and up to date on shots. Here’s what he has to say for himself:

Hi! I’m Chuck, a 4-year old male lab or hound or dane mix. I was found on the streets with a horrible fungal infection more commonly found in Shar Pei dogs. I’m not convinced I have Shar Pei blood in me, because, look at me! I’m about 58 lbs and could still use a bit more meat on my bones.

Shelter Sunday: Yara / Island Pacific Dog Rescue Society / Qualicum Beach, BC

Yara BC

Meet Yara! This Australian Cattle Dog mix is a beauty. Here’s what her rescuers have to say about her: This beautiful girl is a sweetheart and will love you unconditionally! She absolutely adores people, is good with kids and is looking for an understanding family to make her own. Yara is a 45lbs Australian cattle dog, spayed, housetrained and estimated to be 2 years old.

She is almost completely deaf. She does respond well to visual cues, so with training, her lack of hearing could be easily managed. A home where she can be the center of attention would be ideal! She does like playing with well matched dogs, so one 4-legged companion might work (she can get overwhelmed around too many dogs and get defensive). She has no known history with cats, but is probably best suited to a home with no small animals. Continue reading Shelter Sunday: Yara / Island Pacific Dog Rescue Society / Qualicum Beach, BC

Shelter Sunday: Baby Blue / Out of the Woods Rescue / Little Rock, Arkansas

Baby Blue AR

Meet Baby Blue! Here’s what her rescuers have to say about this Husky / Shepherd mix:

Baby Blue was born after a pregnant dog was dumped in a rural part of Arkansas. We think she is a Shepherd/Husky mix. She was born around September 1st. Baby Blue has one blue eye, which makes her very unique! She has a very sweet personality. She will probably grow to be a medium to large dog.

Baby Blue has started her series of puppy shots & will be spayed and microchipped when she is a little older.

Baby Blue is currently a guest of Out of the Woods Rescue in Little Rock, Arkansas. If you’re lucky enough to be near Little Rock, why not contact the shelter to ask about Baby Blue and all of her friends. Here’s a link to their adoption application or you can call them at 501-503-0606 or 888-633-4442.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Preacher AZ

Meet Preacher! This handsome fella is a Mastiff / Cane Corso mix who is house-trained and said to be good with dogs, cats, and children. Here’s what is known about Preacher:

Preacher is all love! He’s a big boy, so needs a strong handler, and would be best with bigger kids. He’s wonderful on the leash & knows basic commands.
