Bari is a beautiful 7 y/o boy that has recently arrived up here in Nebraska from Texas and is settling in. He has been in foster care for just at 3 years learning how to be a dog and trust humans. Sadly, he came in with quite a few other IGs from a puppy mill that was closed down and he is looking for a patient and loving home who accepts him where he is and can help him potentially thrive even more! Bari is still shy of humans but loves other dogs. He prefers his bed and/or safety of his kennel in a nice quiet area but is learning to venture out to a bed in the living room to hang with the pack. He loves getting massages with his AnimalEO essential oils. He is not a jump in your lap sort of iggy, nor does he want to sleep with his people at night, but he does enjoy massages, sitting next to you on the couch and getting petted and his comfort level is slowly increasing. He does walk well on the leash too. In his previous foster home, he was house trained to use bells and supervised dog doors He will use puppy pads in a pinch! In his current foster home, he does very well with his potty training going out frequently during the day as his mom is not gone for a full work day. When foster mom leaves the home for a few hours, Bari is crated and does very well. Bari is on a very inexpensive anti-anxiety medication that has been decreased overtime. He does have food allergies/sensitivities but is easily managed by avoiding certain proteins/grains/legumes and is commercially available. He does have a history of seizures but he has not had any for quite a few months. He is not on medication. His forever home should be adult only and/or only the maturest of older teenagers. He should have a small dog or two or three, as he loves other dogs especially little girls?. For his safety, he will need a secure, fenced yard for potty time and play. He will need continued social rehabilitation in his new home and his people will need to be patient and gentle and have a quiet home. Someone who has experience with very timid/skittish dogs and/or puppy mill dogs would be fantastic.

Casper is a big boy at just over 14 pounds. We think he is around 11-12 years of age based on his microchip date. He can be clumsy at times, especially on non-carpet surfaces. Though he won't be winning any agility contests, he has a lot of energy, enjoys 2 mile walks, has never had an accident inside, and can't get enough attention. This affectionate boy likes other dogs but is mostly independent. He would do fine as an only dog. He really likes toys, but has an interesting way to play fetch - he retrieves the ball and then runs around with it in his mouth not asking for another throw. He'll find the right smell in the grass and spend a good 10 minutes rolling around, get up and repeat. He was very underweight when he came into the shelter before he came to rescue, which may have amplified an existing food obsession, so be prepared to have a not so helpful assistant in the kitchen! His hearing isn't the best, but he can hear when he chooses to listen. He doesn't answer to Casper, but he responds to "Boy", so we often tell him Good Boy or call him Big Boy. No need to spend lots of money on dog beds, this guy wants to be on your lap. He will do best in a home where someone is with him during the day as he doesn't enjoy the crate but he will crate up on command. Pacing the fence line and barking at strangers across the street, he wants to be protective of his people but will let strangers pet him without flinching. We have seen issues with guarding the human bed, so a separate sleeping space is required—he will need a home 100% committed to crating him overnight. Foster mom thinks he is quite a catch, but knows an opportunity where he wouldn't be crated a lot during the day is best for his future. Casper has had a dental cleaning, vaccinations, heartworm and fecal tested since coming into rescue and is on a heartworm preventative. He is also microchipped. He does have a fatty tumor on the left side of his rib cage but it does not cause him any trouble. He had a few small tumors on his front leg but vets do not feel they should be removed. Initially, Casper was anemic but after a few further blood tests show, he in not any longer. His vet felt it was due to his poor nutrition when he came in.
