Missy

Missy.jpeg

Missy is a Black Lab mix, 6 months old, approx. 35 pounds. Missy came onto a property not long ago after wandering around alone. Luckily while hungry and tired she was helped by this family along with a fellow rescuer that was called. Soon after the family suffered a devastating loss to a horrible disease and grandma had to step in for her grand kids and this young pup. Fortunately we had foster step up to help sweet Missy and now in search of a forever home. Missy is a sweet, medium energy girl. She has a beautiful, glossy coat and warm, brown eyes. She is comfortable and playful around children and enjoys other dogs, but she's not a fan of dogs that pester her to play, play, play. She's not terribly interested in cats and shows no signs of wanting to chase them when she sees them on walks. She loves squeaky toys and tennis balls. She also loves comfy places to rest, especially at her person's feet. Thus far she's done really well in the house. She had a couple of accidents the first day, but is good about going outside so nearly completely house trained. She is nervous about going into a crate, but she is treat motivated and will go on command when there's a treat involved. She'l also go in there to sleep with the door open. She loves adjusting her blankets to get comfortable. She also eats in her crate and is happy to do that. Just needs time to get used to being left alone in one. She's great with children. Clearly enjoys being with them and doesn't mind it when they wrestle or get loud. She also catches herself from jumping around them and immediately goes back down on four legs. Relentless puppies stress her out, so she prefers to be around older dogs that are less energetic and respectful. She is playful, learning to retrieve and respectful with older dogs. She will push them out of the way to get attention, but she waits her turn for a treat and doesn't attempt to snatch any treats away. She shows no signs of any food aggression. She pulls slightly on a leash, rides good in a vehicle and not a barker. She is learning cues like "sit" and "get in your bed" and doing well with it. She is a sweet girl, wonderful puppy for anyone willing to spend some time with her. Missy is fully medically vetted; spayed, up-to-date on all vaccines, on prevention plus will be microchipped.

Adored and loved, but unfortunately Rascal's person was diagnosed with stage four cancer, so Rascal finds himself in need of a new home. Rascal is a Lab mix, approx., 4-5 years old and 55-60 pounds.

Riggins

Riggins JHH.jpg

Riggins is a 5 ½ year old that is a wonderful mix of Lab, Great Pyrenees, and Shepherd. He is big at 105 pounds but also very sweet-tempered, playful, goofy and a loving boy. Riggins is an indoor dog that is house and crate trained but also loves running and chasing squirrels in a fenced in yard. Among Riggins favorite things are; people (especially children) mealtime, playing with other dogs, taking walks, and going to parks and public spaces because he loves meeting people and especially those that are agreeable to petting him, he is extremely well behaved on these outings so a total social butterfly. Among Riggins dislikes are delivery people, the mailman and cats that dart in front of him on walks. If Riggins was introduced properly to a cat he may be fine. The cues that he knows are sit, stay, drop it, up (to get in the car) and stay with me, (useful when he tries to pick up the pace on a walk). Riggins is devoted, affectionate and gentle and will bark when he hears noises outside to alert his family. His mix of breeds contributes to being protective of his family in their home. It would not be ideal if there is another dog in the household that barks a lot or is quick to bark. Riggins would do best with another dog that is calm and easy going. It is hard to imagine that a lanky 105-pound dog would like to be a lap dog, but on occasion he will climb up on your lap if you let him. His adoptive family will need to have experience with large breed dogs, and be positive and consistent with their training and expectations of him. He needs a family that has the time to give him plenty of attention, love, exercise, social outings, direction and a large fenced in yard to romp around in. Every moment and every bit of love that is given to Riggins will come back to the family tenfold. If you are interested in this awesome giant boy please go to our online pre-adoption application. Riggins is fully medically vetted; neutered, up-to-date on all vaccines, heart worm tested negative plus placed on prevention and microchipped.

Leia

Leia is one resilient approx., two-year-old lab mix. People are drawn to her beauty, big heart, her curious presence and they often ask to give her a hug. She is not a shy girl and is always ready to oblige all huggers. Leia is 64 pounds and has a white coat with apricot markings, and dark soulful eyes. She has a unique laid-back perkiness! Loves people of all ages and dogs too and she is sure that everyone loves her back. Most anywhere that Leia goes she makes herself at home very quickly. She needs a family that has patience, can follow a routine and will love her unconditionally. Leia is house broken, and crate trained, but it is best not to crate her for long periods of time. She will do best with a family that has a stay-at-home parent most of the day. She is a wonderful and loving companion and loves to follow her human around, enjoys fetching, and cuddle time on the couch. Leia is delighted when you get her leash out in hopes of going places, meeting new friends, and is a perfect car rider. She would love a fur sibling about her own size to play, wrestle, and hang out with. A fenced in yard would be best in order for her to explore, and play. Leia’s zest for life is seen in the joy she exudes when she finds a tennis ball or when you ask her if she wants to go out, invite her to cuddle or offer her food (another favorite thing). Her happy, positive and loving attitude has gotten her through some tough times; she and her sister were picked up starving and taken to a kill shelter, we rescued them both and helped them overcome medical obstacles. After her adoption poor Leia had to battle yet another obstacle, she developed seizures from an oral preventative and she rejoined Southern Skies. She is currently on anti-seizure medication. We have been working on finding the right combinations of medications to control her seizures. She has been progressing and we are working towards reducing her medications. Leia has the strength and desire to live and enjoy life, she will make you smile all day long. Leia has been fully vetted; spayed, up to date on all vaccines, heart worm tested negative and placed on prevention plus microchipped.
