Update on Jewel

Adopted March 2017

Dog’s former name Jewel

What are the best things about your dog?
Her heart is so big! She loves every dog and human she meets. When she gets really excited, her entire back half of her body wiggles around. She may be a puppy, but she is an old soul.

Tells us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training: 
She loves to run, play fetch, eat sticks and all foods, and wrestle with her big brother, Sampson. Mostly, she likes to antagonize him, like any good little sister. Her favorite activity is being touched by any person who will do so. She loves to love.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
As I become a trainer, she is my helper dog. She gets all those shy guys to come out of their shell and sets an example to those rowdy pups how to be respectful.

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
Most say “they’d never guess that she has pit in her because she looks nothing like a pittie”.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Jujubee, Juju, Baby girl

Meet Georgia and Sadie

Meet Georgia and Sadie

Meet Georgia (Gia) on the right, and Sadie, left. Michael Hicks and Jess Florek adopted Georgia from Save-a-Bull as a puppy and began fostering when she was about one year old. When she was three, they foster failed with Sadie who was about a year old at the time. They are the perfect match for each other and bonded immediately.

Georgia and Sadie have a big sister/little sister relationship. Georgia always looks after Sadie, and they love to snuggle up together and be close. And they are partners in crime: Georgia will distract Sadie, Sadie will react by barking at the window, and then Georgia will steal your food from the table!

They love the word ‘Grandma’ and car rides are the best; they lead to adventures, pup cones and training classes (Georgia likes high flying training classes like agility, Sadie is more of an “obedience” kind of girl).

Georgia and Sadie love the outdoors would stay outside all day on the summer baking in the sun is if Mike and Jess let them. They also love walks, bike rides and camping.

They also like to help with house projects, especially painting – and come away with white noses and tails on a regular basis. They really enjoy spending time together in their newly remodeled kennel spaces in their very own room, complete with shiplap and a chandelier.

Georgia and Sadie are also tremendous foster siblings! They happily welcome foster dogs into the house and love puppies and dogs of all shapes and sizes. Sadie is the one that plays with them until they pass out, and Georgia is the one to make sure they follow the rules, don’t get too crazy, and know the boundaries.

“Georgia is a complete mommy’s girl. She is stubborn, smart, serious and very sensitive. Sadie is a derp. She wants to please so she loves obedience training. She has a silly playful personality that makes us smile” say Mike and Jess. “More than anything they demand attention and love, and we sure love to give it to them. “

 

Georgia and Sadie were photographed by Tangerine House of Design as part of our annual Save-a-Bull calendar fundraiser and contest. Watch for next year’s contest details coming soon!

Update on Roscoe

Adopted February 5, 2017

Dog’s former name Roscoe

What are the best things about your dog?
He is a human that walks on four legs. His snores shake the bed. He loves to give hugs and kisses. He also likes to help in the kitchen, in case something were to fall from the counter.

Tells us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
Roscoe LOVES to play fetch even with the smallest of toy remnant. He enjoys going to obedience class every Monday, where he has made many friends. In the summer he loves to go to the lake with his sister and take a swim. Fetch continues at the lake. They both make a mad dash to the stick in the middle of the lake.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
Roscoe has completed level 3 obedience classes, CGC certified, PALS Certification, and works as a trained service dog. He received this honor through the Patriots Assistant Dog program in Detroit Lakes, MN.

How do people react to your “pit bull?”
When Roscoe is working he gets a lot of attention. 90% of the time it’s positive as his demeanor is overwhelmingly friendly. Sometimes people are attached to the stigma and are cautious around him, they also have trouble believing he could be “trained”. Yet Roscoe proves them otherwise everytime.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Ronnie, Roscoe Wade, Good Boy
