Friday's Friend: Dog Adoption, Operation Paws for Homes

Looking for a dog to pet and cuddle with? One who will share affection with you?  Meet Crystal Gayle from Operation Paws for Homes!

"Crystal Gayle"
(C) Operation Paws for Homes
Crystal Gayle weighs around 21 lbs. is about 13 weeks old and her mom is a collie mix.

A great mellow personality is her fine trait, but she does love to pull out all her energy and play when there are others around for her to entertain.

Since Crystal Gayle is a young pup, still a baby, she will need to go to a home with children that are respectful of her size and age. The children must understand that tails are NOT for pulling!

Adopters interested in Crystal Gayle should not be out of the home for more than 4 hours at a time in order to continue her training!

She is up-to-date on age appropriate vaccines and is already spayed.

A note from Operation Paws for Homes: "Crystal Gayle's immune system will not be fully functioning until about 16 weeks of age. She MUST stay out of public places where she could be exposed to the germs of many other dogs for another 3-5 weeks after she goes home. These no puppy zones include all pet stores, dog parks,and for apartment dwellers, areas used by other dogs. The requirements are for the puppy’s medical safety and are shared with all potential adopters to ensure awareness of the vaccination status."

Interested in meeting this sweetheart of a pup, you can do so by completing the Operation Paws for Homes Application.

WOOF!!!!!!  Happy Friday!!  Got any pawsome plans for the weekend?  My human and I will probably go for a few nice long walks, work on the church grounds and go for a ride or two!  WOOF!!!

Dog adoption not only helps a dog needing a home and someone to share their love with, but the human benefits with having a companion to take places. I've become an important part of my humans family- THEY could NOT live without me, all because of dog adoption and a rescue organization.

A fiesty young lady came to visit me this week wanting to be introduced to you - she is from Operation Paws for Homes, her name is Patsy Cline!

"Patsy Cline"
(C) Operation Paws for Homes
Sweet Patsy is a Collie Mix, weights about 19.5 lbs. and is 13 weeks old.  And, is she ever ready to have some fun with her humans!  WOOF!!!  She is barkingly the right size- she can run with the big dogs and fit in with the small!

Patsy is house and crate trained. A smart girl, she is anxious for one on one training and attention!

"Patsy Cline"
(C) Operation Paws for Homes
A favorite moment her foster has with her is "how she lays on her side next to me trying not to fall asleep when I am busy on the computer - she wants to keep me company, and look alert, but her sweet eyes close and when she awakes, she looks a bit apologetic."

As Patsy is a young pup, she will require an adopter who isn't gone more than 4 hours at one time so her training can continue- no exceptions on this!

Barkingly,with her small size and young age, it's recommended that she goes to a home with children who are respectful of that and know tails are NOT for pulling!  WOOF!!

She is up-to-date on age appropriate vaccines and is already spayed.

Friday's Friend: Dog Adoption, PetConnect Rescue

PetConnect Rescue is the organization that rescued me from a shelter in North Carolina, brought me to Maryland and then introduced me to my challenging human who I have no idea how he lived without me all that time!  WOOF!  It's been a bonding of dog and human- a great thing to happen!

My friend "Miss Cathy" brought a cool guy for me to introduce to you this week.
(C) PetConnect Rescue

Rocky is a 9 year old Lab/Hound mix, handsome gentleman!  The gray on his face adds a distinguished charm to his good looks.

An extremely friendly character, he greets everyone he meets with a wagging tail.

Thuogh a bit cautious at meeting other dogs the first time, he plays well with them and enjoys their company! PetConnect Rescue thinks he just likes to check his friends out first before romping and playing!

Rocky is a loving, affectionate boy who has excellent manners and is fully house trained.  He gets along great with little humans and as well as older humans.

Are you looking for a walking companion or a dog to hang out with you while you run errands or watching TV, Rocky might be the one for you!

One look into his eyes and you will be smitten!

Rocky is house trained, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and preventatives and eager to find his forever home!

Interested in meeting Rocky, please complete the PetConnect Rescue Adoption Application!

Friday's Friend: Dog Adoption, Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc.

Labrador Retrievers make the most excellent dog for any and every family, any and every human, to adopt and take home and treat them like Kings or Queens and are the bestest dogs ever.  Uh, no, partiality at all- yes, uh, I'm a Black Labrador Retriever, and, well this opinion was provided by Labradors everywhere and I concurr.  WOOF!  BARK!!!!!

My friend, "Lab Lady" from Lab Rescue would probably agree with me- as she brought me two friends to introduce to you!  Meet Hunter and Cookie!

(C) Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc. 

WOOF! Ladies first, this is Cookie, a 74 lbs., 6 year old Chocolate Labrador Retriever and Hunter is a 105 lbs., 7 year old,Yellow Labrador Retriever male. These two are a bonded pair and must be adopted together.

These two characters are excellent in the crate and have great house manners for being former "outside" dogs.  They take verbal correction well and are motivated by food.  WOOF-who isn't??

Now, Cookie is my of the happy-go-lucky type and tends to be timid but has much more confidence when Hunter is around.  She likes to be friends with everyone.  While Hunter is more of a gentle giant.

A game of tetch is their favorite- they think it is the greatest game in the world and will bring the ball right back to you! On command Hunter will drop the ball at your feet and wait for you to throw it again!  BARK! BARK!!

Hunter and Cookie are great on a leash, enjoy car rides, but have no interest in the kiddie pool at all!

They both love to be with their humans and enjoy all the time they can paw!  Bark!

Neither has a history with cats or children.  Recommended for children ages 10 and up.

My two friends who are looking for their "Forever Home" are heartworm negative and up to date on vaccines!

If you would like to meet these two great characters- remember Labs are PAWSOME family dogs- and learn about dog adoption, please visit Lab Rescue- Tell "Lab Lady" Noah sent you!  WOOF!

Friday's Friend: Cat Adoption, PetConnect Rescue

WOOF!! er, Meow, arf?  Happy Friday- Pawing you have had a great week, its been a pawsome week for me and my human.  We've met several dogs and cats who are looking for their "Forever Homes!"

One of my human friends, "Cat Lady" has brought a kitty for you to meet, this is Proton-  Is this a face or what!

(C) PetConnect Rescue
This kitty was born in early April.  A striking gray and white coat makes this guy a standout among the rest.

Proton loves to romp, wrestle, tackle and pounce with his brothers (Electron, Neutron and Photon), why do I feel like I am in science class?  WOOF!  He will definitely keep you in laughing as you watch his adventures!  When he's done, Proton is happiest when he has a warm lap and a human to cuddle with! 

Barkingly, er, meowser, this guy is pretty young, so he will need a human who is home much of the day or he'd would love to be adopted with one of his brothers or his mom Chessie!  That would be pawsome-

A healthly fella, he has started is vaccinations and is a great champ when it comes to using the litter box.

Interested in meeting this terrific kitten? Please complete the PetConnect Rescue Adoption Application and one of their adoption coordinators will contact you.
