Matty is a 6 month old boy who just a wonderful kitty! He was found on a doorstep, he was freezing cold and very thin. Matty was taken in by a volunteer and has been given lots of yummy food to help him grow and is now a healthy boy. He is currently being fostered with a small dog and loves to play with her. He can be a bit shy upon meeting but he warms up very quickly. Matty is litter box trained, has had his boosters and is also neutered. Matty’s adoption fee is $50.00. If you think you could be Matty’s forever home, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Simba is well-behaved in the house and LOVES his crate. He naps in a crate (with the door open) all the time in his foster house. He even runs into his crate to watch from a safe spot when someone enters the house and the rest of the dogs all run to the door. Like many Pomeranians, Simba likes to bark when he is excited. He comes when called and can sit and shake a paw on command.
Simba is not used to being brushed and is learning to overcome his fear of grooming in his foster home. Although he has NOT bitten that we know of, he easily could unless his new family continues to GENTLY work on grooming him a little bit every day. Being a Pomeranian, this task cannot be avoided and will be absolutely necessary on a constant basis. Knotted fur hurts!
Although we believe Simba is house trained in a basic sense, he has been ‘marking’ every now and again in his foster home. He was neutered very recently and had been living with other intact dogs before coming into care, so we believe that the marking will disappear over the next month as his hormones dissipate.
Simba is a quirky, interactive, cuddly dog who will bring joy to the right family.

Xavier is a 5 year old Sheltie. He came to ASDR a month after he was picked up by Animal Control as a stray. He was so matted that he had to be shaved. He has been in foster for less than a week but we have learned a few things about him. He loves to snuggle and be brushed. He’s very quiet and rarely barks. He can hold his water better than any camel and is clean in the house. He does very well in the car and will lie or sit in the seat without jumping all over the place.
Although Xavier is being fostered with 9 other dogs, he rarely interacts with them. If he is not sitting in front of his foster mom or dad looking for some affection, he is snuggled on his mattress in front of the fire.
Xavier is neutered and up to date on his vaccines as well as microchipped. He was excellent with our vet, who thinks he has had chronic ear and feet infections. Although not known for sure, food allergies may be the culprit. Xavier is on antibiotics and is on a corn and wheat free diet.
Since he does have a history of running, and he can get out of just about an collar, it is recommended that he never be off leash when outside, unless in a fenced area, and that a halter be used.
Xavier will snap if he is hurt (i.e. his feet bleed and you touch them) or if you lean into his face when he is resting. For this reason he will not be adopted to a family with small children.
More information will be posted about this beautiful boy as we learn his personality.
ASDR has the pleasure to introduce you to Bear! He is a 12 week old, Shepherd/Rotti mix puppy who is very interested in life and the entire world! Bear is a bundle of fun and energy and loves to play with anyone who will play with him! Bear is very friendly and loveable, but due to his growing size, will not be placed in a home with children younger than the age of 12. He is crate trained and learning to be house trained too. He does well on a leash and is very good in the car. Bear is going to be a very big boy when he is full grown. He will need obedience training. Bear is being fostered with big and small dogs and cats. While he is very friendly with all of them, it is not advisable to be adopted into a home with very small dogs as he likes to play with everyone and he doesn’t realize the size of his big paws, same with the cats. Bear will do best in a home where someone can spend alot of outside time and play time with him. While he is crate trained, he should also not spend his days in a crate waiting for his family to come home. He has to much energy for that and will not learn as he should. Bear is a wonderful, goofy puppy and is waiting for his forever home.
Connor is a 4 year old Shih Tzu mix. He is a happy and energetic dog. He loves to cuddle on the coach or sleep in the bed with you. He loves to go for walks and car rides. He gets along great with other dogs and cats. Connor is good with kids and strangers. Connor is house trained and does not chew on anything. He will make a perfect pet for either an active family or a movie watching kind of family. Although his appearance may look like he is not athletic he is quite a jumper and runner. He would do great in agility or for someone who likes to hike.
Connor does not like to be pushed or grabbed but is very obedient and will do as you ask. He has a lot to say and lets you know what he likes and what he doesn’t.
Check out this video of Gwey in training.
Gwey (Chinese for belong to or Spanish for dude) is a sweet, gentle boy. He has the softest mouth and will take treats from your hand while barely touching you. He is approximately 4 years old.
Gwey spends a lot of time near his human. He likes to lie down by your feet or on the couch beside you. He knows how to sit and comes when called when in an enclosed yard. He has not been off-leash in an open space. He does seem a bit needy and would benefit from a family where his human was home a lot.
Gwey does have resource guarding issues, mostly centered around objects. He learns quickly though and is already dropping his ball after two days (please see video). As Silvia Jay (one of Nova Scotia’s most knowledgeable trainers) has written, resource guarding is one of easiest problems to fix, with help from a professional. Take a look at her advice: http://www.voice4dogs.com/resource-guarding.html
Gwey will only be adopted to someone who is dedicated to his continued training. Lessons with an ASDR approved trainer will be mandatory.
