DOB approx 4-12-10. Hey everyone, I'm Mya! My former family wasn't allowed to have animals at their home, so here I am! I love everyone and I crave affection. My favorite toys are sticks and toy balls and I am open to accepting any treat that you offer me! I'm pretty much your perfect little lap dog! If you can give me a loving home and protect me from flying bugs (I'm terrified of them!), I will give you my unconditional love in return. 🙂 http://www.greatriverrescue.com/adoptable-dogs/Visit http://www.greatriverrescue.com/adoption-2/ to learn more about our adoption services.

DOB 02/16/16: Hi, I'm Ripley! I came here all the way from Texas after Hurricane Harvey! I spent some time at Paws and Claws in Hackensack, but they felt that I would be a better fit here! I need to learn some manners, but I am a very sweet boy! I have a lot of energy, so I would do best with an active family. I don't seem to love the dogs that are here, but it is unknown if I am truly not dog friendly. Come pay me a visit! http://www.greatriverrescue.com/adoptable-dogs/Visit http://www.greatriverrescue.com/adoption-2/ to learn more about our adoption services.

DOB Approx 12-24-16: Hi, I'm Simza! I'm a very sweet girl with a lot of love in me! I have spent my life as an outside dog so far, but I wouldn't be opposed to changing that! I'm still a puppy, so I have a lot to learn but i have a lot of potential! I'm a little dominant with other dogs and will chase livestock/horses. Other than that, I'm an angel! http://www.greatriverrescue.com/adoptable-dogs/Visit http://www.greatriverrescue.com/adoption-2/ to learn more about our adoption services.

DOB Approx 9-29-15. Hi, I'm Charlie! I came to Minnesota ALL the way from Texas after the recent hurricane. I spent some time in Detroit Lakes and now I'm here at Great River Rescue!

It's been a long journey to get here and I'm about ready to settle into my new forever home! http://www.greatriverrescue.com/adoptable-dogs/Visit http://www.greatriverrescue.com/adoption-2/ to learn more about our adoption services.

DOB approx 2-9-12 Hi! I'm Ox. I am a very big love bug of a dog and I am looking for my new forever home. A home where I can be the only dog would be best for me as I do not like other dogs being around my food and I will get after them if they are. So I really need to go to a home with no other animals since I do not like cats and I am not a big fan of dogs. I would love to have a nice home with a big fenced in yard to lay in. I would also love to have a nice family that will love me forever and take me for nice long walks and lounge about with me at night. If you are looking for a nice big love bug like me please stop in and see me.Visit http://www.greatriverrescue.com/adoption-2/ to learn more about our adoption services.

Breed American Pit Bull Terrier DOB 5/23/10 DOB approx 5/23/10 Hi! I'm Ruthie, Ruthie RUTHIEEEEE and I LOVE YOU! Well, I WILL love you if you give me a couple minutes to check you out. A single girl can't be too careful, you know. But boy oh boy, I think you humans are the bees knees! I love little humans and big humans. I just love you all! I will wait by the door for you to come home and stay by your side after you arrive. I'll walk anywhere you want to walk, run anywhere you want to run, and ride anywhere you want to drive. I can get a little over enthusiastic at times, and they say I don't know my own strength, so I need to be walked in a harness (I'll choke by pulling when I'm leashed to a regular collar). I also chew my toys enthusiatically, so no tennis balls, stuffed toys or rope toys for me. I do LOVE my kongs filled with peanut butter, though. YUM! Oh, and I get a kick out of playing dress up, especially at Halloween. Now, I do have to fess up here. I do not like any other animals so I need to go to a home with a securely fenced yard where I am the only pet. I also need a family who is familiar with my breed and/or committed to working on my training. Hey, what a great way for us to get to know each other and spend some fun, quality time together! And when we finish our lessons, you can bet I'll snuggle up on the couch and watch a great movie with you! I can hardly wait! How about you?

DOB approx 11/2/11 Hey! Over here! I'm LOLA! I am a very sweet, very friendly, very beautiful, very athletic and SUPER playful girl with LOTS of energy that I would love to share with YOU! I am a wiggly, cuddly velcro girl who would love to snuggle up on your lap in spite of the fact that you may not have enough lap for all of me. I have tremendous enthusiasm for life and an extremely fun-loving spirit! My enthusiastic spirit does get me into trouble every now and then, though. You see, sometimes I forget that clothes and shoes aren't dog toys , and the people who are wearing them at the time don't seem to appreciate that (oopsie). I don't mean any harm, and the great folks here have been helping me learn how to curb that particular enthusiasm. I've already calmed down some (but still jump for joy at times) and know how to sit, down, come, drop it, and walk with a walking harness (I'll pull if you let me, so don't let me). I'm very smart, love learning new things and respond well to any sort of positive reinforcement. My training isn't complete yet, so I'll need a home that will continue to help me learn good manners and give me LOTS of regular exercise (I've heard that a tired dog is a good dog, but I'm not sure I've ever been quite as tired as I should be. 😉 ). In warm weather, I would love to spend time playing with you in a big fenced yard, but please don't make me stay in a kennel. I've had way too much of that already, and to be honest, I HATE kennels! I don't like the cold very much, either. It makes my feet hurt and I shiver, so I would like a snuggly warm bed (maybe right in front of a fireplace). Better yet, if you don't mind a big furry companion in bed, I can always climb in under the covers, and we can keep each other warm. Every now and then I meet another dog who I like OK, but I'm not fond of most of them, and I don't trust myself around cats. Little kids make me uncomfortable, too, but I'm great with adults (men and women) and older, adult-sized kids. If you are looking for a glamour girl like me to share the good times with, please swing by and let me work my charms on you.
