Hi! I'm Marley. I am one BIG bucket 'o love! I want nothing more than to stay by your side, gratefully accepting all the pats and belly rubs you have to give out while listening to all of your stories, silly jokes, and secrets. I'll walk with you whenever you want to walk and I'll ride with you whenever you want to take a drive. I'm also pretty doggone smart! I know sit, come, fetch, stay, quiet, and my favorite word, treat! As much as I will love you, I can't quite promise the same about other dogs and cats. I can get along OK with larger dogs after proper introductions, but I'm really better with 2-legged family members. Luckily for me, I'm big enough to fill the "animal space" in any home all by myself! If you are looking for a big lovebug like me please stop by and see me. I'm waiting to make you my forever best friend! Visit http://www.greatriverrescue.com/adoption-2/ to learn more about adopting me.

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.
