  • Terrier

Click on thumbnails to view video. Georgie is an approximately 12-month-old Terrier mix. She weighs 44.8 lbs. She is a sweetheart! When I first got her she was afraid of the world!! She is doing better everyday and doing well at my house. She does well with people that she knows and dogs at the park! It takes her a while to warm up but when she does she's your friend forever! She loves to run and try to play with the dogs that she knows! She is cautious of new people and sensitive to noises. Although we were at the lake with fireworks and they didn't bother her at all!! She is not a water dog yet but started to walk in the lake to drink. The last day she actually walked in mid leg to take a drink so maybe she will turn out to be a water dog, I don’t think she would do well with children under 10. We went to beginners obedience class and in the beginning I would have to carry her in. Now she goes in on her own. She loves the instructor! We made it through the first and second sessions! I have taken her to pet stores and she gets very nervous! I have also taken her to Runnings to walk around. She gets nervous around carts and loud noises. She will have to go to a home that is willing to continue obedience classes and introducing her to new surroundings. She is a work in progress but well worth it!! She loves it outside and digs in the snow! She hops through the snow!! If interested please go to our website at www.adoptapetfm.org and fill out a preadoption application or call 701-232-5681. Her adoption fee is $200. REQUIRES FENCED YARD

Ivy is a mixed-breed, spayed female approximately 13 years old. She is very affectionate with people and likes to play fetch and go for walks. I had her at the lake for the first time and she likes to play in the water. She hasn’t gone deep enough to actually swim, but frolics where she can touch. She has had some training with Don Sullivan's Perfect Dog system. She walks well on a leash and has learned basic commands like sit, shake, down, back up and stay. Ivy is great with people, both adults and children. She does show aggression towards other dogs, however, we have been working with her on that as well as no barking. She is starting to warm up to strange dogs better than she used to. It takes careful and controlled/supervised introductions. She seems to do better with mid-sized to large dogs as opposed to small dogs. Once she is comfortable with another dog, she likes to run and play. She would need to have a fenced yard (minimum 5ft fence), and if there are other dogs in the house, they would need to get to know each other well before being left alone together. She has never been around cats or any other animals, and it wouldn’t be recommended. She is not able to go to the Petco dog shows yet as there are too many "stranger" dogs for her, and it becomes too stressful. If you would like to meet Ivy, please leave a message on the dog line and we will return your call to schedule an appointment. She is a great dog with a lot of love to offer, in need of a forever home. She had a dental May 2014.

Poppy is aprox 3 years old and she is a great dog. She is long and lanky maybe some Great Dane? At this time she weighs 50 ish pounds. She has not had any accidents in our home, and does well in the kennel. Poppy is living with other dogs, cats and a 7 year old. She loves her toys and over all BALLS! She is very respectful with her mouth and is gentle with all. She loves to sleep on the bed and does like the couch. Poppy will follow her nose so she would do best with a fenced yard.
