1. Elyria, OH: URGENT! SHELTER FULL! DOGS NEED ADOPTION/RESCUE!

*******************************************************************************************

POSTED 10/29    TRYING TO BECOME NO-KILL!

 Gemma Female URGENT! LONGEST SHELTER RESIDENT ADOPTED BUT NEEDS A NEW HOME! Fixation on the cats is a huge problem - they've had to move her kennel to the garage and she needs out ASAP!  Gemma's adopters have consulted several times with a trainer and agonized over this decision for a while now. Sometimes, it just ISN'T a good fit - and so - we work to find one that is. Gemma needs set rules and boundaries - and again - she was in a kennel environment for a long time here - then went into a home where she had some issues with the 4 leggeds already in the home - so she still has not truly decompressed - still anxious and needing some adjustment time. If you are interested in this girl, please message the page and we will get you in touch with the owner (or she may comment here so you can message her directly on FB). Thank you. We here at VOLCDK are always for what is best for the dogs. She has the sweetest soul - so sweet! You don't get more low maintenance than her! She is so calm and laid back, doesn't jump on you and content with just sunbathing and being by your side. She would make the very best friend.  https://www.facebook.com/VolunteersofLCDK/photos/a.990246431049337/3001395196601107/?type=3&theater
Kennel 8 Forrest Adult Male HAS RESCUE COMMITMENT!  1-2 years old and about 50lbs. Stray. Forrest has been dubbed Mr. Happy Pants WiggleButt - just a silly fun young pup who wants to play and be loved! He is a great dog. Loves to give hugs and kisses. Happy boy who is good with cats and children. Notes: Poor Forrest - playful, young, energetic, adorable. But kennel life is weighing on him. Initially good with others (even cats, say his finders) - now he's just hyper and jumping at everything and stressing. We get him out - and initially, he's all over the place - but give him some time, a few reminders on manners, and he calms down to the good dog we all know and love. He just needs OUT of here - and with a family that understands decompression and training.    https://www.facebook.com/VolunteersofLCDK/photos/a.990246431049337/3068556343218325/?type=3&theater

Kennel 17 Jetta Adult Female HAS RESCUE COMMITMENT! Stray. Weighs about 50lbs. Miss Jetta has some eye and skin issues going on. Kennel Keepers are on the case today - giving her meds and love.  https://www.facebook.com/VolunteersofLCDK/photos/a.990246431049337/3099653030108656/?type=3&theater

Kennel 19 Paige Pit Bull Terrier Mix Adult Female HAS RESCUE COMMITMENT! Stray. She has done well with other dogs at the shelter.  https://www.facebook.com/VolunteersofLCDK/photos/a.990246431049337/3085067368233889/?type=3&theater

Kennel 1 Dougie Male URGENT! Dougie is such a good boy - he has such a silly sweet personality. He loved his bath and had a great time rolling around on the couch in the break room while we cleaned his ears. He is so gentle and it’s time for him to have a new home that helps him with his skin issue.

Dougie was what we call a "frequent flyer" - been here a few times. Owner said he was an escape artist - can open doors - get out of fences - not good with other dogs and this time, they haven't come for him.Interestingly enough - we haven't had any problems with him. Understanding that in-kennel behavior can be different from home - but - he met 2 dogs last weekend and did fine with them. He's been great on walks - fine out in the yards - so we're thinking maybe it just wasn't a good fit - maybe he wasn't getting enough exercise - a bored dog can be a bad dog. https://www.facebook.com/VolunteersofLCDK/photos/a.990246431049337/3167517076655584/?type=3&theater

Kennel 9 Mabina Female ADOPTED! Stray. She is an absolute sweetheart!  https://www.facebook.com/VolunteersofLCDK/photos/a.990246431049337/3167516659988959/?type=3&theater

Kennel 18 Darcy Female URGENT!  Stray. This pup came in - after being spotted for a few days, wandering loose. On intake, she was growly with the men here - okay with the women, but still a bit iffy. As we do - we spend time, observe and let them come to us. Yesterday - she hung out with Kennel Keeper Jenna - and went for a walk with Kennel Keeper Donnie. https://www.facebook.com/VolunteersofLCDK/photos/a.990246431049337/3174913409249284/?type=3&theater

Birdie Pit Bull Terrier/Lab  Mix Adult Female - ABANDONED!  HAS $125 SPONSORSHIP FOR RESCUE! 3 years old, 50lbs. Birdie is a very sweet girl who loves everyone she meets. She walks well on a leash, good with other dogs and seems fine with cats. She is believed to be house broken…maybe an accident here and there. This girl is very playful and would thrive well in a home with other doggy friends she can play with. if you can be her special person, please come out and meet this sweet girl. Jer adoption fee is $110 and that will cover her Spay, Microchip, Deworming and 3 vaccines UPON adoption. https://www.facebook.com/GCASdogs16/photos/a.683601325393423/767540803666141/?type=3&theater

Brownie Boston Terrier/Pit Bull Terrier Mix Adult Female - OWNER SURRENDER! 4-5 years old, 38lbs. Brownie sseems good with cats. She is house broken, walks well on a leash and loves car rides. Brownie is playful but would probably be very laid back once she gets used to things. She needs a home with NO other dogs. She can be around them but she gets jealous and doesn't like them in her business. Brownie is very small, even though she looks big in her pictures - you would be surprised. Brownie was surrendered because the owner brought other dogs into the home, and she didn't get along with them, so she got sent off 😞. Her adoption fee is $110 and that will include her Spay, Microchip, Deworming and 3 vaccines UPON adoption. https://www.facebook.com/GCASdogs16/photos/a.683601325393423/767540906999464/?type=3&theater

Crush Pit Bull Terrier Mix Adult Male - OWNER SURRENDER! HAS $200 SPONSORSHIP FOR RESCUE! 4-5 years old, 50lbs. Crush is still pretty playful and loving of people once he gains your trust. He’s good with both male and female dogs but we would prefer him to go to a home with females only. However, if you have a submissive male, we can try it out. He has not been tested with cats yet but we can do so upon request. Crush is pretty energetic but he doesn’t pull you around on a leash like most pitties do. If you pull out a harness he gets so excited and bounces around. He loves car rides and will load right up. He was surrendered with Brownie due to the owner bringing in three other dogs into the home without slow introduction and of course the older ones get the short end of the stick. He has been here since 9/18/19 and was hunkered in the corner of his cage growling from fear. We finally got him to trust us and he loves us now. His adoption fee is $100 and that will include his neuter, microchip, deworming and three vaccines upon adoption. https://www.facebook.com/GCASdogs16/photos/a.683601325393423/767540986999456/?type=3&theater

Dally Husky/German Shepherd Dog Mix Adult Male -  OWNER SURRENDER! 3 years old, 40lbs. Dally is a very sweet girl who was surrendered to the shelter when her elderly owner had to move somewhere that dogs were not allowed. Dally is house broken, walks well on a leash, and is crate trained. She won't jump on the furniture. Dally  loves car rides and is good with other dogs, but she will need a home with no cats or livestock as she will chase. This girl is very fearful  at the shelter. She attaches to women very very quickly. She was not raised with a man and is terrified by them. She needs a family who understands that she will need time to warm up to you. Dally is really i a good dog. Her adoption fee is $110 and that will cover her spay, microchip, deworming and 3 vaccines UPON adoption.  https://www.facebook.com/GCASdogs16/photos/a.683601325393423/767541130332775/?type=3&theater
