Lucy aka Lulu

post by leslie

This is Lulu, and you guys, she is FANTASTIC. She is some sort of little hound mix and she’s super submissive and just rolls over for tummy rubs all the time. Photo evidence provided.

She is 6.5 yrs old and she has a bad case of heartworms that she’s healing up from at the moment. Because of this, she can go for short walks, but she’ll never be your running companion. She’s been in foster care since January, and is just about ready to find her forever home (waiting on one final x-ray for a clean bill of health).

This girl likes things calm. She probably shouldn’t live in an apartment or townhouse as she likes to alert you (by barking) when she hears noises. She likes other (calm) dogs and kids, but due to her huntress nature outdoors, the foster is thinking cats might be a bad idea. She walks well on a leash and loves car rides. And really? She’s kind of hilarious with all the rolling over for belly rubs.

If you’d like more information on how to adopt this sweetie, reach out to Wags and Whiskers and let them know! They can give you much  more information — she’s just not posted online as they are waiting for medical clearance.

About this project

For the next month, I’ll feature photos on my blog, my instagram and my facebook feeds that focus on dogs who need homes. These are dogs currently in foster homes, waiting for their forever family. They are amazing pups who will melt your hearts — some are hard to adopt because they are pit bull mixes (the sweetest dogs ever who cannot help their strength) or they have lived on the streets for a long time and are covered in scars or they might be blind or deaf (or both). Some are simply hard to get adopted because they are black, which is the dumbest reason ever. But each dog that has come into my studio in the last few weeks for photos has had a warm heart and wanted nothing more than love. Wouldn’t it be great if one of you could provide that? I hope so. To see all the dogs featured so far, look here.

Adorable Abby

post by leslie

This is Abby, and she is gonna be a GREAT dog for someone! She’s a puggle (pug/beagle mix) and she was surrendered because her mom moved into assisted living and couldn’t take a dog with her.

She is super friendly and outgoing and acts way, way younger than her age (which is 12). She would be your shadow in the house, following you from room to room, and she loves to snuggle on the couch. She’s great on walks and loves to ride in the car and and in general is very trusting and loving. She is crate trained and house trained. Go get her now! You can find her adoption information here!

Klaus!

post by leslie

This is Klaus! He’s a dalmatian pit bull mix who was found as a stray in Dallas and has been in Minnesota for just a few weeks. He’s 3 years old, and he is a sweetie. He loves to lean into you, to snuggle and to surprise you with kisses. He loves walks outside, but does not require a fenced in yard! He’s good with other dogs, cats and probably kids (it hasn’t been tested yet, but he’s super agreeable). He also loves car rides!

He is, however, afraid of cameras. So be warned. Ha!

You guys, his ears are SO CUTE. Those spots are just adorable, and he is such a sweet boy.

If you’d like to read more about Klaus or find out how to adopt him, that information is here!

will

post by leslie

This is Will, and he’s been in foster for more than a year. Considering this sweet boy is only two years old, that’s a long time! Half his life! Let’s get this boy a home!

He was found in a ditch in Alabama, and he was brought up here where he’s been a great foster. Willie is a touch fearful, but once you earn his trust he is amazingly loyal. He was a perfect gentleman in the studio with me (loads of treats and a calm demeanor are key for this guy), and he’s super food motivated. He’s crate trained and would love a big yard to run and sniff in. He’s fantastic with older kids, but the young ones might add to his anxiety.

This guy is a true sweetheart, and if you think you might have the perfect home for him, you can see more about adoption here.

Sweet Kiara

post by leslie

This is Kiara! She’s just under two years old and is a gorgeous mix breed. She’s not too big (42 lbs), and is super calm and easy going. She is good with dogs and kids (but would need slow and easy introductions), but she does like to hunt, so cats are probably not a good fit. She’s well trained and smart and, uh, stubborn. She knows the word for down. She knows you want her to lay down. But she’s just going to stare right back at you because she just doesn’t feel like it right now. Which is charming and hilarious, but you might need to work on a little if you bring her home.

She is crate trained and potty trained and would be a great addition to many homes. If you’re interested in Kiara, you can see her adoption information here.
