Meet Alec!

Alec is a three year old chihuahua that has been dealt a really bad hand. This little guy came from an abuse case. He has been so hurt in his life they broke his spirt. He is such a sweet guy and wants to be loved so bad. It’s going to take someone with a patient gentle soul to bring this guy completely out of his fears.

BFF has been fostering him for several weeks now and see his progress improving all the time. They finally got him comfortable enough to where he’ll jump up lick your finger tips. The other day they were able to pet him for the first time.

He’s great with other dogs. I’d like to get him in a home so he can come out of his shell completely.  Alec is vaccinated neutered and microchipped, potty trained and loves his kennel.

Please consider this little love.

Please call or text Don at BFF if you are interested in meeting Alec!

Meet Nola!

Nola is affectionate, funny, playful and adventurous when given the opportunity to thrive. Nola would love to join you on park sniff-aris, playing fetch or training new tricks. She is highly motivated by both food and toys, and – when she is comfortable with you – lots of pets!

Nola adores the company of dogs her size who want to play with her and enjoys competing in a game of tug-of-war. She can also walk by other dogs on leash very well, understanding when it is play time and when it is work time.

Nola has been a model obedience student and knows heel, sit, down and drop it very well! She is always looking for new things she can learn with you. Nola is also crate-trained, housebroken, non-destructive and well-behaved on leash.

Nola grew up in a stressful environment that has left her nervous and afraid of strange humans. Despite this adversity, she is excited to explore new environments and learn new things. She may take a few days to warm up to new people, but once she knows you she is an easy-going dog who loves affection.

Nola is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and will come with a martingale collar, a leash, and post-adoption support.

If you think she may be a good fit for your family, contact us at https://www.startingroverrescue.com/adoption-inquiry

Thor enjoys to play with other dogs and is learning his leash manners when around them. He can cohabitate with dogs or have play dates with dog friends. He absolutely loves playing with people too, grab a tug toy or a ball to have a blast with him!

Meet Bunky!

Bunky is a young 10 year old Queensland Healer mix. He lost his home because he has a torn ACL and needs a loving home with no stairs.  Vet really wanted to avoid surgery because of age and most likely won’t benefit from the surgery. Bunky is super sweet. He still loves to play ball tug and loves going for walks.  He’s potty trained. Bunky tolerates other dogs with proper meet and greet.  He’d rather be an only child but would do fine with another older dog as well.

Bunky should be in a family that provides love and structure.  He loves his kennel and is not a barker.

Please call or text if you are interested in meeting Bunky.
