Update on Crash

Update on Crash

Adopted January 2, 2017

Dog’s former name Crash: it fits him so well

What are the best things about your dog?
His quirks, affection and playfulness.

Tells us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
He loves to run, “crash” into things and play “zoomies”. He loves other dogs, toys and treats.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
Crash was very nervous at his first puppy training class. The teacher had to put him and me behind a covered barrier in the corner to help him calm down. Crash worked hard with me every morning to train. At the end of the class, the teacher could not believe Crash’s improvement. She said he was a different dog. I believe he was the same special dog, but with more confidence :).

How do people react to your “pit bull?”
Crash may not be a pit bull after all. He is pretty tiny. Crash plays well with other pits and we make sure to spend time with them.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Crashy, Kermit, Pupsie, Grandpa. These are all names my 13-year-old son has given him. My son is smitten with Crash.

Most are a little hesitant at first but her wagging tail wins them over.

Update on Madeline

Update on Madeline

Adopted December 2016

Dog’s former name Madeline

What are the best things about your dog?
Since day one, we have thought that she acts like such a cat in every way possible. We believe that she was once a cat in a former life and reincarnated into the best kitty/doggy combo. She is sweet, kind, sassy, hilarious, self-entertaining, carefree, incredibly patient and laser focused when she wants something (specifically a toy that her brother, Jefferson has). She has golden eye that will make your heart burst with love.

Tells us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
She loves to go on walks, hikes and runs. She loves to go camping and on car rides. She loves to learn new tricks and to see how quickly she can power through a Nylabone.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
She has caught two squirrels and a few birds with the help of Jefferson. He runs them down and she runs off with them as if she did all of the hard work herself.

How do people react to your “pit bull?”
She is just an itty bitty kitty so not too many people assume that she is.

Does your dog have any nicknames? 
Maddy, Girlie, kitty cat, Mad-Kitty, Squirt, Short-stack.

FAST FIVE with Madeline

1. Food: Piggy or picky? Both

2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Both

3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Rides!

4. Water: No way or splash all day? Shes starting to being a splash all day kinda gal

5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? Sunshine!

Update on Oliver

Update on Oliver

Adopted January 2017

Dog’s former name Cesar

What are the best things about your dog?
Oliver is a big lazy cuddle monster, but he can also be super playful with his favorite toys. He makes the cutest grunting noises when he is hugged. He also will nibble my fingers when he wants to be pet.

Tells us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
He loves going for walks by the river and he thinks car rides are the bomb. As for training, he doesn’t mind it, but it can be a lot of work sometimes. During Obedience 1, he would last about 30 minutes, then it was hard to get him to do much.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
Oliver has completed Obedience 1. He also has been on a couple of camping adventures, and he loves to visit his doggy friends.

How do people react to your “pit bull?”
Their initial reaction is a bit apprehensive because he is big, black, and bulky. Some people have made a point of walking around him when we are in public. However, once people give him a chance, they find out that he is the biggest love bug.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Bubba, Baby Bear, Olly and Olly Bear.

FAST FIVE with Oliver

1. Food: Piggy or picky? Piggy

2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Sleep on

3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Car rides

4. Water: No way or splash all day? No way

5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? A day in the sun

Fall in Love with Mr. February, Bo

Fall in Love with Mr. February, Bo

This handsome hunk is four year old pit mix Bo. He was adopted from Rochester Animal Control by Adrianne and Jacob and is the light of their lives. Bo loves his toys, especially his Kong balls as you can tell from his photos. He also loves playing fetch, even if he doesn’t give the ball back 100% of the time.

Recently, Bo got a new sister when Adrianne and Jacob adopted from Save-a-Bull. Her name is Zelda (fka Bridget). Although Bo was a tad bit hesitant of his new sister at first, they soon grew to love each other and are now the best of buds!

Bo was 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 later this year, or purchase your 2018 calendar here.

He loves chasing his sister Luna and making her mad. He LOVES “shake”. So far we have only mastered the one paw, but I’m sure we can get him to doing both in no time.
