A little about Carlos

• He is very affectionate and loves to play with stuffed toys and ropes

• No rawhide or bones as he becomes possessive of them

• He knows basic commands and walks well on the leash

• Treat motivated so the sky is the limit for training!

• Carlos thinks he’s a lap dog and likes belly rubs

Has some fears that will need to be worked on in his forever home:

o Towards men and small children he becomes fearful and will show signs of aggression (Barking, growling, backing away, etc)

o Dog aggression. NOTE: Dog walkers have seen slight improvement in this area

Also Dave McMahon the owner of a dog training academy here in Niagara Falls has donated a 10 week obedience class for Carlos and his new home to work on his fears and to learn new things!

She is so good looking too with her black muzzle and caramel coat, warm brown eyes and a tail that never stopped wagging. She was only allowed on the driveway but was walking pretty good for me. She sits and was working on her come and heeling. Jazzy is a very smart girl and picks up on things very quickly. I’m going to thoroughly enjoy spending time with this beautiful girl!!!! With a lot of praise and affection I can see her going far, she won’t be at the humane society long I’m sure!!!!

German Shepherd Mix

Sex:
Male Neutered
DOB:
6 years
Adoption Status: Available Description:
Joesph is a sweet boy who has made great progress at the shelter with some extra TLC. He will need to be in a home with older kids or adults. He loves to play and go for long walks. Kaitlin (staff member) has worked closely with Joseph since he arrived at the shelter as a stray , she caught him on routine call and he was never claimed. He has had his fair share of hurdles to overcome. Kaitlin has this to say about him : Joseph is a very handsome 6 year old German Shepherd Mix, Joe has had quite the turn around with us. When he came to the shelter he was very scared and would bare all his teeth and snap at us, we couldn’t get anywhere near him and it wasn’t looking good.It took a bit for Joe to even let me in his kennel but it just took some time trust and faith to make all the differences, I started by feeding him some treats with wet food.After he started to take the treats from my hand I slowly started to pet him while I feed him and it was a slow but steady process.After he trusted me I felt comfortable enough to let him out with me and we would walk up and down the aisle. I found out he knows how to sit and lay down also he will give paw He’s a very affectionate dog and loves his walks and toys he is willing to give all his love to someone who is willing to love him back. Joseph is ready to find a mature family to love his playfulness and continue to show him nothing but love and positive praise.

Adoption Status: Pending Adoption Description:
Dog Walker Linda enjoys spending time with Lily and shares this:Lovely Lily with her beautiful brindle coat, laughing eyes and bobbed tail!!!! She is just a riot, loves to run around in the pen and even choose her own toys from the bin. Lily is a lot of fun, I really enjoy taking her out!! She has such an zest for life, playing with the toys and throwing them in the air. She comes and sits for me and after a lot of exercise I can get her to heel on the driveway. She would be a wonderful addition to a family that is on the go, who would keep up her training and give her a forever home. Lily is too nice to be in the shelter, she deserves to live the rest of her life with a loving family. Come and see her she just might be the companion you’ve been looking for!!!!! Lily is very sweet towards people but prefers not to be restrained or have her feet touched. She will need a secure yard as she is a climber and would like her new home to be cat free.

Dog Walker Linda enjoyed spending time with Ms.Walker and shares this : What a dainty little girl with her pretty face, lovely coat and soulful eyes!!! I enjoy spending time with her and notice she is getting more affectionate and cuddly. She sure can get running in the pen, flying around then lying in the grass. She enjoys a nice roll and getting her belly rubbed. She can be a puller on the leash, but slows down after her time in the pen. Ms. Walker loves to sniff around the grounds, a favorite coon hound pass time!!! She needs some work on her commands but that will come with more lessons. All in all she is a wonderful dog with so much potential.

Nicholas

Type:
dog
Breed:
Lab Mix
Colour:
Black
Sex:
Male Neutered
DOB:
3/11/15
Adoption Status: Pending Adoption Description:
After our recent ruff night fundraiser Jenn spent the night with Nick and has this to share : Nicholas is such a suck. We started off Ruff Night with a short walk up and down the driveway a few times and he was an absolute angel on his leash. It took a little coaxing for him to let me put the collar on but once he warmed up to me we were good to go. After our walk we settled into the kennel for the night and he immediately snuggled into me. We spent our entire night cuddling together. While we were asleep he was little spoon the whole time and when we were awake he just draped himself over my lap wanting ear scratches. Every time he had to use the bathroom in the night he went to the outdoor portion of his kennel. I even hung a blanket in front of the door to stop the breeze so I would be warmer and even with that blanket there he just nudged it aside and went out to do his business. He’s pretty calm on the barking side of things. Like any dog, he does bark but most of the time when the other dogs would get going he would just lift his head up to see what was going on and then go back to sleep. When he gets excited he DOES jump and he jumps like Michael Jordan. Every time I needed his attention I just crouched down to his level and he was immediately with me. He seems to know some basic commands. "Sit down", "stay", it may have been a coincidence but I think I even got a "shake a paw" out of him. We ended off our time together with a walk in the rain in the morning. He was more energetic after a good nights sleep but he was still great on his leash, especially for such a young age. Nicholas is just an amazing dog. He still needs to pack on a few more pounds but any home would be lucky to have him. I highly recommend he goes to a home with a spot on the bed for him. Nicholas came into the shelter in rough shape , he is doing well on his road to recovery! He is high energy and is eager to find someone to help teach him some manners. He will need to be in an adult home only. He has made great progress with the help of our volunteer dog walkers and he can’t wait to continue learning in his new home.
