This beautiful girl is Marsha, and she’s made a lot of friends at our center. She’s sweet, gentle, well behaved and extremely laid back. She’s so laid back that she would prefer to take a nap curled up next to you than play with a toy. But don’t let her laid-back nature fool you. Once you take her outside, all she wants to do is play. She enjoys long walks with friends, big fluffy dog beds and being showered with love and affection. Make her a member of your family, and she’ll remain a devoted companion forever.

This young dog is one happy boy. Tucker has a lovable face and a personality to match. His positive attitude is simply inspiring. And to top it all off, he’s as smart as a whip. In fact, he’s going through obedience training at Ponderosa Pet Resort right now. So he’s on his way toward becoming a very well-behaved dog. A handsome pup who’s friendly, intelligent and has impeccable manners. That’s what we call a great dog! Tucker is your Rockwall Adoptable Pet for the week of January 14, 2013.
Hello, I’m Jeb and sometimes my foster parents call me Jebby. Either way is fine with me…oh, and scratch my ears and head, please.
I came to the rescue in pretty bad shape. I had a severe ear infection, eye problems, and had to have all of my front bottom teeth removed! I had some skin infections too, but all of these problems have pretty much cleared up. Living life outside for so long was hard on me. Now I eat special food and take a little daily medicine — but that’s it!
In the past few months I’ve really learned how to be an inside dog; I haven’t had any accidents inside in months. I’m also a good pack member with my two foster brothers. Even though I’m 10 years old, I play like a boy. I really love to play with my three year- old foster brother. We play ALL the time! I like to roughhouse - run and tumble and roll around. I like to growl and make noises when we play, and I roll onto my back and kick my feet around like a clown. We also lay together, too, me and my foster brothers. I really like to be next to them.
When my foster mom is cooking I like to lay in the kitchen and supervise. And if we are sitting as a family, I am happy to lay around and chew on a bone or a television remote, whatever you ‘give’ me.
I eat grain free food and a lot of it! I am a very good clock: six a.m. and six p.m. for breakfast and dinner, and I’ll be sure to remind you when it’s time. My fosters put just a little bit of water to help me chew, and it’s delicious.
My foster parents keep my ears clean and also give me baths with special shampoo to help my itchy skin. I don’t too much mind being in the bathtub; I just stand still and give them my sad face until we’re done.
I am looking for a forever family that can be with me all the time, and a person who is really good at remembering my medicine and my baths, and who can give me a yard to run in and dirt to roll in. I really need companionship from other dogs or people during the day. I get too upset if I’m alone in the house (but I will wait alone in the car for a few minutes while you run an errand inside the store).
Please call me! I’m the sweetest doggie in the whole world, a kind old man with a puppy spirit. Maybe you have the perfect place for us to live happily ever after?
Physical Description: Great medium sized dog. Pretty reddish gold coloring with soft white markings on her nose, chest and all four paws.
Animal Personality: One day Allie’s owner opened the door to let her out and never let her back in. She survived on her own until some kind-hearted folks brought her to the Orange County Animal Shelter. So we laughed out loud when we saw Allie happily walking across our floor—tail wagging, head held high — carrying a banana back to her new bed. This captures Allie’s personality —- truly happy, laid back, and if she has to eat bananas to survive well that’s just what she’ll do. Her drive to find food on countertops and in trash baskets diminishes with each doggie meal and she is learning quickly with redirection. She continues to be an extremely calm, pleasant spirit who mumbles approval when given a treat. She is housetrained and loves to relax on her bed. Allie is wonderful on leash, loves children of all ages, and gets along well with cats and dogs.

Rosie wants to be the New Year’s resolution that you actually keep! This girl was an absolutely perfect dog during her temporary stay with a volunteer, @bloodfleshbones, over the holidays. It’s obvious that she has been in a home before because as soon as she walked into the house, she curled up next to our volunteer on the couch and stayed there for hours. She’s a perfect companion for a laid back person or family, but she also really likes to play too. She walks very well on a leash and really enjoys exploring new neighborhoods. Rosie would be a perfect addition to any family who wants a chill, fun loving, fast learning dog. If you have any questions about her, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
