[Age] 1 years (as of September 2018) [Breed] Mix [Background] Rescued from animal control [Size] 10 kg [Character] Sweet little Teddy is a shy guy when you first meet but with a couple of walks together (he hopes you have lots of treats, too!!) his true personality and smarts start shining through! Teddy is a bit nervous in new situations that he is unsure of but once he knows you are there to support him and keep him safe, his confidence returns. Teddy has good head on his shoulders and often looks to his "people" for guidance and direction. Connection, trust and treats are Teddy's favorite things. His small stature makes him perfect for even a small apartment where he will be loved:)
[Age] 7 years old [Breed]MIX [Background]Rescued from Animal control [Size] 14 kilograms [Character] I’m all grown up but still really a puppy at heart. I do my best to charm everyone with my cuteness, whether it be my irresistible smile or standing on my hind legs and waving at you with my front paws. Although I may seem a little energetic when you first meet me, some calm time together will show you my real nature. I am extremely affectionate and love to be pet and massaged. I’m a clever boy and know my name, “sit” and “touch” and can get along well with other dogs.
[Age] 6 years [Breed]Akita [Background]Left behind when owner was hospitalized [Size] 40 kilograms [Character] A big, gentle giant, Rocky is friendly and calm and has a wonderful personality. We wonder if it’s his size or that confidence that makes all the dogs at the HEART shelter notice him when he walks by. Rocky could be a perfect lap dog if he were of a smaller breed but he would be just as content to lay at your feet.
*Rocky came to HEART Heartworm positive which will not affect his health but he will need monthly heartworm treatment year round.
[Age] 5 years [Breed]Chow Chow mix [Background]Rescued from Animal control [Size] 14 kilograms [Character]Fuku had a pretty hard start before she came to HEART. She arrived at Tokushima Animal control with a tumor that had caused uterine prolapse. She went through a difficult surgery and recovered but just a few months later, had related problems. She pulled through it all and her kind and friendly nature never wavered. Quiet and gentle, she is a real lady and also very snuggly! Fuku needs a family that understands she could once more have health problems and are financially able to support her if they were to come up again and that their time together may be short. She is in a stable health state, is full of life and very hopeful..and we haven’t given up that she will have the years she has left in a loving and caring home.
[Age] 2 years (as of September 2018) [Breed] Tosa Inu [Background] Rescued from Animal control [Size] 40 kilograms [Character]A friendly and clever Tosa boy on the smaller size for his breed but with a lot of strength! Ben loves his people so much, we are still working with him on his mounting and mouthing behaviors as he will do anything for love and attention. We are looking for a family without small children or other pets who are familiar with his breed and have experience with larger dogs that require R+ training. He is really a big softy that will appreciate your effort!
[Age] 10 year (as of September 2018) [[Breed] MIX [Background] Tohoku disaster rescue [Size] 12kgs [Character] Getting up there in age but still a lot of life and love left in this handsome guy! Yushi has lots of spring in his step and a decent amount of energy so would love a home that likes long walks.
