Update on Frances

Adopted: November, 2019

Dog’s former name: Frances

What are the best things about your dog?
Her deep soulful eyes and unconditional love. She is a very curious girl, must be near us at all times and loves to cuddle. She will forever be a lap dog!

Tell us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
Frances loves to go on walks and play with her stuffed toys. She is a fan of meeting new friends at the dog park and hanging out with her best friend, Hershey. Frances has mastered shake, sit and stay and does well with heal and halt. We are now working with her off-leash in the yard.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
Every day is an adventure with Frances! Graduating from her level one obedience class has been her greatest accomplishment so far. She made huge strides from the beginning to the end, even the trainers and entire class were very proud of her!

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
She gets many compliments on how adorable she is and how shiny her coat is. People think her name is the greatest! Frances is still learning that people are ok so she does keep her distance and sometimes let’s out a good bark.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Frannie

FAST FIVE with Frances

  1. Food: Piggy or picky? She is such a piggy that we had to get her a slow-feeder.
  2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Sometimes she lays in her bed but prefers the couch. At night she needs to be with us in bed, preferably under the covers.
  3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Car rides are ok. Takes a bit for her to get comfortable. She loves to look out the window and watch the world go by!
  4. Water: No way or splash all day? Still waiting for warmer weather to introduce her to water.
  5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? She hasn’t had much outdoor sun time with us yet, waiting for warmer weather now that winter is over, but she does like to soak it up indoors when the cat shares with her. She loves playing in the snow!

Update on Buddy

Update on Buddy

Adopted: March, 2019

Dog’s former name: Porkchop

What are the best things about your dog?
Buddy was our fifth foster and our only foster-fail. Buddy was an immediate fit with our family. He is so adaptable to what’s going on around him. Want to hike for the day? Buddy is ready to go. If you want to chill and watch movies for the day, he’s the first one on the couch, saving his favorite spot. Buddy is a big, gentle teddy bear.

Tell us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
Buddy loves to go for walks and he loves to relax on the couch and watch the squirrels. He watches America’s Funniest Home Videos every Sunday evening and barks at every animal.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
We have been able to continue to foster with Buddy. He needs slow introductions, as he can be quite jealous, but he always makes a new friend and is sad when his friends leave.

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
Buddy has no idea why people would be afraid of him. He loves everyone and considers everyone his best friend. We have worked with Buddy during the past year so he does not run up to people, but keeps his attention on us, so we can do a slow introduction. Everyone is surprised by Buddy’s sweet and gentle temperament.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Bud, Budster, Budder

FAST FIVE with Buddy

  1. Food: Piggy or picky? Piggy!
  2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Unstuff
  3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Loves car rides, if he can have the front seat. If he’s in the back seat, he whines.
  4. Water: No way or splash all day? Not a fan of water, but mud is awesome!
  5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? Sunshine!

Update on Murdock

Update on Murdock

Adopted: October, 2016

Dog’s former name: Hank

What are the best things about your dog?
Everything!! He is the perfect balance of sweet and goofy, affectionate and awkward, dopey and loveable. He truly is the sweetest boy around. He makes us laugh on a daily basis, and always has kisses ready for us.

Tell us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
He loves to be a lap dog – even though he’s close to 80lbs, he thinks he’s only 10lbs. He enjoys chewing on sticks in the yard, playing fetch with a frisbee, removing the squeakers from toys, and playing with puzzle/enrichment games.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
He is the only dog of our 3 that has every jumped onto the roof! Our backyard that is fenced in, has a high area with a retaining wall that is only about 4ft below our roof. Murdock was chasing a squirrel and, before he even realized he did it, he was on the roof! Luckily he figured it out quickly and came right back down… Suffice it to say we watch him very closely now 😉

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
Murdock has never encountered someone that didn’t want to say hi to him. He just LOVES people, and he’s always smiling, wagging his tail, and eager to meet new friends. We have never had a negative reaction to him.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Murdy, Dockers, Doc McStuffins, dirty murdy (because of course it’s my white dog that loves to play in the dirt and mud)

FAST FIVE with Murdock

  1. Food: Piggy or picky? Piggy, though he is picky only when it comes to frozen kongs – he’s a princess and needs to wait for it to come to room temp before eating it!
  2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? He LOVES dog beds and won’t unstuff them, but he loves unstuffing toys!!!
  3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? CAR RIDES!
  4. Water: No way or splash all day? Little bit of both… he loves the lake and swimming, but doesn’t like wading in the kiddie pool we keep out in the summer…
  5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? Sun. All day. Every day.

Update on Griffin

Update on Griffin

Adopted: May, 2017

Dog’s former name: Duluth

What are the best things about your dog?
Everything. He is the perfect balance of sweet, sassy, affectionate, and playful. He has all of the best qualities from his breed mixes.

Tell us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
He is obsessed with playing fetch – he will run himself into the ground playing with his ball. He also loves brain games, puzzle toys, kongs, anything fun and mentally engaging. He loves walks and playing with his two SAB alum siblings.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
He can jump a 6ft fence, ha ha! At daycare, he will just jump the fence to switch groups and play with different pups. It’s ridiculous. As funny as this can be, he is a good boy and knows that he is only allowed to jump the yard fences at daycare, not at home!

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
We haven’t had any bad experiences. Griffin is mixed with husky and chow chow. While he is 75% Am Staff, his appearance is more like a husky, but he does have a blocky head!

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Griffles, hippogriff, sassyboy

FAST FIVE with Griffin

  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? Splash all day
  5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? Both! He loves the snow like a typical husky, but he loves sunbathing too!
