She is a 6 year old spayed pit mix named Gertrude 🙂 Gertrude does have some issues.. She's on a life time allergy medication due to a chicken allergy. She is also dog selective. Small dogs are a no go. She had gotten into a nasty fight with a small dog in her previous home. She will get along with right large dog though, she loves her foster brother! She would likely prefer to be the only dog in the home but will get along with another dog as long as its a good fit with an experienced owner. Gertrude (Gertie) is such a sweet girl! She's a big cuddler, she will cuddle you all day long if you let her. She loves her people very much and loves to meet new people who will give her lots of attention. One of her favorite things to do in my apartment is sit with her head on the window sill and watch everything outside. She was so excited for that first bit of snow, she ran around, pounced on it, even rolled in it! She knows the basic commands of sit, stay, come, and lay down. She's a good listener who will do just about anything for a pet or a treat. She's still figuring out how to not pull on the leash, but she's getting better with the right harness! Her favorite thing of all time is to ride in the car, whether or not she can put her head out of the window. Just saying the word "car" will get her running to the door and barking for you to hurry up! She also loves tennis balls, she will do her best to fit every single one in her mouth. I once saw her fit four in at one time! She loves kids, she likes to sit down in their lap so they can pet her all day, she's always very calm with them even though she thinks she's a 70 pound lap dog. This sweet girl would love a home where she gets all the snuggles possible, where she can go on lots of car rides, and where she won't have to worry about you leaving her behind. REQUIRES A FENCED YARD If you are interested in Gertie please go to our website at and fill out a pre-adoption application or call 701-232-5681. Her adoption fee is $200.

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.
