Meet Patches, a sweet and shy gal looking for her forever home! At 6-months-old, she is continuing to learn all about house-training and crate-training and is making great progress! Patches adores other dogs and would love to have another canine pal to play with in her forever home. And like to nap? So does Patches! Patches has found joy in chewing on toys and the occasional blanket! She loves playing in the house with her foster and resident foster dog; the outside however is still a daunting place for her, but with patience, love and understanding, she is learning that the outside world is not so scary. This sweet, energetic gal cannot wait to find her forever home that will provide her with love and patience and ample time to play!

Luck of the Irish here! You probably noticed that I’m a special needs pup. I was born with serious scoliosis and spinal fluid leaking from my spine. This caused a spinal cyst that compressed my spinal cord. I had surgery to remove the cyst and the pressure on my spine, but nerve damage was already done. In spite of that, my prognosis for a happy life is good, so I keep moving forward! After surgery, I graduated from physical therapy and have ongoing PT exercises that I need to do daily in order to stay strong. I’m so lucky that I ended up with Save-a-Bull and had the opportunity to thrive. I have a real lust for life and show my excitement every chance I get. I have a wheelchair that I use outside and while out and about in the community.

Playful and cuddly, very watchful and aware of the people around her. She likes to follow you around and sleep near you feet when you stop. All 10 litter mates are living in a very busy foster home with all ages of children from 6 mo. to 13. They are good with the older dogs in the home and the cat doesn't mind them either. Potty training has started they are using potty pads in there pen at night. And they are really starting to enjoy the outdoors.

Hey everyone my name is Kirk! I am a sweet, sensitive boy on an epic mission to find a new family to call my own. I love to play with my foster siblings — a couple dogs and a cat — and I get along really well with everyone. And I love squeaky toys and bones to chomp on. I'm pretty easy-going. And I'm a little shy so it takes a minute for me to warm up...but once I do, it's cuddle time! It's a big ol' universe out there but I know my perfect family is looking for me and I can't wait to find them!
