Peanut is looking for that special someone to watch television with, share an occasional snack and most of all, snuggle with. He is an adult, around 8-10 years who only wants to be someones #1 cuddle companion and best friend. Peanut doesn’t mind canine brothers and sisters any size, as long as they’re respectful, he will cuddle right in with them. He occasionally wants to take more than his half of the bed, but with a little parental supervision, he sees the value in sharing. We think he would be happiest in a home with other dogs, small preferably. Peanut appreciates a quieter home where someone can focus on him, which won’t be hard as he follows you from room to room. His potty habits are A+++ for an Italian greyhound, with access to go potty at intervals (with his foster siblings) he has had only one accident. He marked a little (he wanted everyone to know whose house it really was). but with 2 days of a belly band ruining his look he now knows its his house and no need to mark. Peanut is an EXCELLENT car traveler. He sleeps quietly while on the road and will listen to any genre of music. He walks wonderfully on a leash and enjoys exploring new places. He crates nicely when foster mom is away for part of the day. He does need a kind but firm person to help him with his food and toy guarding behaviors around other dogs and when he gets protective of his people when other people are around. He is doing well with this in his current foster home. We think the best home would be one which is quiet with no kids and without much foot traffic or visitors. We are looking for just the right fit for Peanut to be sucessful and happy. We want this to be his FOREVER home. If you think Peanut could be your companion and you can provide him a stable, quiet and safe home, please apply (unless you have small children, he wants to be the only baby). Peanut is up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered, Heartworm neg and on preventatives, and had a recent dental/extractions and has just one tooth left. WE RESPOND TO ALL INQUIRIES.

FOSERTING NEAR DAVENPORT IOWA Slater is a sweet, loving and easy going 11-year-old boy who gets along well with everyone he meets! He is a very easy keeper! He loves dogs both big and small and is cat safe. He loves people including children, and is happiest when he can curl up on the couch under a blanket next to his family. Slater is happy to go into his crate at night and when his foster mom has to go somewhere and looks forward to the special treat he will get, He’s not too happy about going outside when the cold winter wind is blowing, but can be bribed with treats. Slater enjoys toys with squeakers and can spend hours chasing and barking at the squirrels in the backyard so we want Slater placed in a home with a fenced yard as this is how he can comfortably get his exercise. He walks well on a leash, but he can’t go for walks anymore due to the pain it causes in his front legs. He takes joint supplements and is fine around the house and yard, but if he does strenuous exercise it causes him pain. Slater entered rescue 4 yrs ago weighing almost 25 lbs, but with a healthy diet and exercise, he is now a slim, healthy and beautiful 13 lbs. He is very fond of eating, and so his foster family has to be careful not to leave food where he can reach it, and if he finds the pantry door open even a crack, he will get in and start helping himself. Slater was diagnosed with Cushing’s disease 4 years ago and was put on medication until it started causing problems with his kidneys and liver. After being off of the medication for a while, tests showed no sign of the Cushing’s disease (for over three years now--he is in remission) so he is currently only taking a thyroid medication for low thyroid and a joint supplement. He will require occasional bloodwork (really necessary for all older dogs) to make sure that his kidneys and liver continue to function normally. Hs last bloodwork results prior to his dental in November showed his kidneys and liver at normal ranges. He has had no additional problems due to the Cushing’s since the medication was stopped over 3 years ago. With the cushings diagnosis years ago, there is no way to know how this might affect him in the long-term; he could live a long, healthy life, or the tumor in his pituitary gland could decide to grow, causing issues. Slater has 2-3 seizures per year but since it is very infrequent and they are short lasting, he does not require medication. He has not had any seizures since moving to his new foster home over 3 months ago. He did have a dental cleaning this November. Prior to his surgery, they did find a mild heart murmur, not causing him any issues or symptoms, and mild cardiac disease, most likely due to him being morbidly obese years ago. This is something that will need to be monitored yearly at his vet checkups. This little guy is incredibly sweet and can’t wait to find a forever home that will give him all of the love and attention he knows he deserves! He has been waiting a looooooong time!

Sweet, beautiful 9 yo Little Miss Nelli comes to us from the south and is continuing her social rehabilitation in one of our wonderful foster homes in Lincoln, NE. She came from a puppy mill living out her entire life in a cage and came into rescue weighing 5#. She is now healthy and weighs around #12-13. She is now exploring and learning how to be a dog and how to trust. She is very active for her 9 years and can be quite spunky! Don't let her age fool you! She is a funny girl whose tail wags and wags... She will need a home with someone who is familiar with puppy mill dogs or very timid dogs as she will need patience and understanding while she continues her social rehabilitation. We will require a secure, fenced yard for her as she LOVES to zoom around and run and "hunt". She deserves that after so many years in a mill. She does great with her foster IG siblings and loves to snuggle up with them and learn the "ropes" from them. She has been great with the two other large dogs in the home as well. However, they are calm and not the playful type. She is nervous around large, playful and active dogs. She seems to really enjoy kids as long as they are kind and respectful. She has learned leash skills and LOVES her neighborhood walks. We would like her in a home where daily walks, weather permitting, are routine. She is going outside to potty beautifully when let outside throughout the day. She does not use potty pads currently in her foster home. She does crate nicely and quiety overnight without a peep and while foster mom is away. She has just now became comfortable to start to sleep in her foster mom's bed with the other dogs. She is not a jump in your lap and snuggle kind of dog right now but will allow petting when she trusts you. She will allow petting and touching when she is snuggling up next to her foster mom She is just now learning to sit on foster mom's lap and receive love and take a little nap but she will not yet willingly jump up. Foster mom is unable to walk up to her to pick her up at will but Nelli does know the "kennel" command and when she goes into her kennel, foster mom is able to pick her up and put on her leash, coat, etc. . Small dogs in her foster home bring her comfort and we do want her in a home with another small dog or two (even better). Please do undestand that she will be an increased flight risk so great care will be needed when taking her out on leash, or while indoors when doors are opened. She should NEVER be unsupervised outdoors and fence gates will requrie locks so they won't be accidently be left open. If you think you can provide Nelli a patient, safe and nurturing home while understanding that right now she is not the typical "follow you all around the house and jump in your lap and snuggle you under the covers" IG, please get in touch with us. These mill dogs do make wonderful strides once they leave the mill behind but it can take quite a long time and it is very rewarding to watch.
