Dogs

Please note: Prior to public adoption appointments, animals may already be adopted or show adoption pending within the TRU community.

Lou

 

Lou - Adopted

Lou is a very friendly and sweet, red brown and white, 5-6 year old, Mastiff mix.  She is selective with her canine companions and we are unsure of how she would be with cats as she seems to be very intense about them.  Lou loves people and would be great with children as long as they are respectful of her.

 Beaux

Beaux - Adopted

Beaux is a 1 year old, brindle in color, male neutered Border Collie/Mountain Cur x.  He is very friendly but a little shy at first.  Once he gets to know you, he is very affectionate and loves to snuggle.  He likes to bark, demanding his morning and evening walks, but may do better once in a settled home environment.  Beaux is a very smart boy who so far, has taken minimal training to catch on.  He gets along with most dogs but has not been introduced to cats.  He would be good with children if they are introduced appropriately. Beaux walks very well on a leash with the help of a gentle leader.

 Gilbert B

 

Gilbert - Adopted

Gilbert is a 10 yr old male neutered Labrador mix that is friendly, affectionate and energetic for his age.  He was adopted from the Fall semester of the AHT program but was returned because he was anxious being left home alone.  Gilbert enjoys long walks and playtime with his owners.  He is great with other dogs and would probably be fine with older kids.  Gilbert truly loves being with people and needs a home where his owners can be with him most of the time.  A home with another dog would be ideal.

He is currently in a foster home with other dogs and is doing very well.

 Java

Java - Adopted

Java is a sweet, fun loving 1.5 year old brown, black and white spayed female Basenji mix.  She loves to play with other dogs and seems to be good with cats.  She can be a bit nippy when taking treats so best suited with older children.  She can be very affectionate but on her terms.  Java is extremely smart and requires a lot of exercise and if left inactive for too long she may become destructive (she is a chewer!).  She walks great on a leash and would be a great running, hiking and biking companion.

 Josie

Josie - Adopted

Josie is a beautiful 3 1/2 year old spayed female Anatolian Shepherd/Mastiff mix.  She is very friendly and affectionate to all people.  She is quite confident in new situations and learns quickly.  Josie walks well on a leash with the help of a gentle leader or anti pull harness but can be distracted.  She has been reactive to other new dogs, especially females so she would need a slow introduction.  She is very good with children of all ages but it is not known how she would be around cats.

 Rex

Rex - Adopted

Rex is a very curious and gentle 1 year old neutered male red brown Rhodesian Ridgeback/American Staffordshire Terrier mix.  He is very outgoing and social with people.  He is smart and very food motivated so picks up new things quickly.  Rex is good on the leash with the help of a gentle leader and walks right by your side but can be distracted from time to time by people and dogs. Previously he had lived around cats and was not noted to have had any problems.  Rex has been good around older children but has not been introduced to small children.

Riggs

Riggs - Adopted

Riggs is a 2 year old grey and white neutered male Husky mix.  He is a very affectionate and friendly dog once he gets to know you but is not overly confident so he can be shy in new situations and people.  Riggs has done well with all the dogs he has been introduced to  but has not been introduced to cats at this point.  He can be a bit mouthy when playing and a bit fearful of loud noises so would be best suited with older children.  He is not overly food motivated but continuous work on training would be beneficial and use of his love for attention may work best to reinforce his good work.

 Rocky

Rocky - Adopted

Rocky is a 9 1/2 month old neutered male, brindle colored, Bull Mastiff / Labrador Retriever mix.  He is a very friendly, affectionate and easy going dog.  He is great with other dogs and has been introduced to cats and seems to tolerate them well.  Rocky can be a bit nervous upon meeting you for the first time and loud noises, so would probably be best suited to a home with older children.  He can also be a bit nervous around men but has shown more confidence with work.  Rocky has a health condition that may need some attention in the future.

 Thor

Thor - Adopted

Thor is a 1 year old neutered male black and tan German Shepherd / Labrador Retriever mix.  This well-mannered, gentle giant weighing in around 90 lbs is a very sweet, affectionate, and playful dog.  He needs lots of exercise and would benefit greatly by continuing with obedience training.  Thor gets along well with other dogs and has not over reacted when he has seen cats but has not been properly introduced at this point.  He can be mouthy when he plays but is quite gentle.  Due to his pure size, he would be best suited with older children.
