A few months back I got serious about dedicating myself to earning Tamara's trust. It breaks my heart watching her get so excited when people are outside her kennel, only to hide when they come in to see her. It didn't really seem like I was getting anywhere until pretty recently, but she is definitely coming around. She will finally take treats out of my hand, sit down near me, and genuinely seem content with me around. I'm hoping one day she'll be comfortable enough with me to get some belly rubs, but that's completely up to her.

Collin was being very photogenic today which it’s really not hard for him since he’s so perfect and handsome. He loves to jump and play and DIG! He’s a big digger but don’t let that scare you away from this sweet boy. He’s the all around perfect dog with a great temperament and so eager to please you. He would love to be a part of your family and he would be the perfect addition.

Steph is a very high energy dog. She’s very smart and is able to learn anything if she had a home where someone could spend lots of time with her. She can play fetch (she loves to play fetch) and she knows how to sit on command but she has the potential to learn so much more. Steph is a little timid at first but once she warms up to you, you can’t get her away from you (not that we want her away from us) plus she’s absolutely gorgeous!

Fritz and Fletcher sure are happy to be back outside and in the fresh air back to playing in the water hose (weather permitting) and chasing tennis balls. They are such a cute pair, crazy hair and all!

Here at Straydog we're doing some adopting ourselves. We've adopted a no animal forgotten mentality. Even though our Sanctuary is known for rescuing and adopting dogs to loving homes, over the years we've had a chance to pamper numerous other animals such as cats, squirrels, pigeons, hawks, etc… We immediately go to work assessing each animal’s unique situation. What they need at the time that they come to us be it food, water, shelter and look for injuries or anything that may have caused them to leave their natural habitats. We note anything that may hinder them from their daily activities or any issues that may cause them to be unable to protect themselves when they do return to their habitats. Whether it's getting them to a refuge or bottle feeding them to support growth, our love and passion for our dogs gets extended to every animal that's in need. We welcome them with open arms, it's who we are. Straydog currently houses 170+ rescues, help us spread the word, tell a friend, share our Facebook posts and just maybe someone you know will welcome a rescue with open arms too.
Caregiver Chelsea reports:
When Maxy first came to us she was super shy and skittish. It's been absolutely amazing watching her come out of her shell. Lately she has been demanding (quite loudly) my attention whenever she sees me, and as soon as I walk into her kennel it's game time. Her play style is just as awkward and goofy as my dog at home, and I absolutely love it.
Caregiver Destiny reports:
Hadie sure is enjoying her outside freedom now that her amputated leg is all healed up. Love this little spitfire!
