Hello There: My name is Suzy and i traveled a while to get her to the beautiful city of Bemidji. My original place was Detroit Lakes MN. They were getting a little full of my kind, so the people at Great River Rescue said they had space for me. I am super sweet and loving. I would do best in a home with bigger people as small children tend to make me nervous. Please come meet me today so that we can begin our loving forever lives together.

Hey! You! Yeah, You! Are you looking for me???? I think you are. I am a lap dog...a 70 pound lap dog. Why are you laughing? I am a lap dog and refuse to be told differently. I came to Great River Rescue when my previous owner, who loved me dearly, realized that I just can't seem to keep my paws off of those tasty chickens that were always running around and taunting me. They started it!!! So, if you are looking for a date to KFC, I am in. Come by and meet me today so that we can start our lives together Love SidraVisit http://www.greatriverrescue.com/adoption-2/ to learn more about our adoption services.

Woof: Hey, How you doing? I am doing fantastic...except for one small problem...I don't have my forever home. I am a good boy and I just need a chance to prove it. I don't understand why no one wants me and keeps pawning me off on others. I want to be your forever faithful companion. Your protector. Your friend. Please come and meet me and give me a chance to be all of these things and more. Love GoonyVisit http://www.greatriverrescue.com/adoption-2/ to learn more about our adoption services.

  • Prefers home without small kids
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.

Hello potential forever loving home: My name is Jaycee and I am a ball of love. I am full of life and love all of the attention. I have lived most of my life outdoors and would love a warm bed to sleep in at night at my masters feet. I need a little training as i am unaware of my size and love to jump. I was surrendered to Great River Rescue due to my owners were moving and i was unable to come along. I am told that I probably should not live in a home with cats or any other small pets. I love all people though. If i sound like your type of dog, please come and meet me today so that we can start our lives together Love JayceeVisit http://www.greatriverrescue.com/adoption-2/ to learn more about our adoption services.

  • Catahoula Leopard Dog
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
DOB 12/18/15. Hi, I'm River! I was surrendered to the shelter because I'm not a huge fan of small children and my previous owners are trying to start a family. They loved me very very much and took very good care of me, but they couldn't run the risk of the newcomer and I not interacting well. I do well with older children and teenagers, as long as they understand the boundaries between what is and is not acceptable when interacting with me. I tend to try to be the dominant male in the room, so I do not do well with other male dogs or overly dominant females. I am kennel trained, and can be in the kennel up to 10 hours if need be. I have been trained with the remote shock collars and respond very well to as little as the vibrate setting. I get protective over rawhides and pig's ears, but seem to do fine with anything else. My favorite toys are nylabones and rope toys and am not protective over them, for whatever reason. I am a healthy boy, but have been diagnosed with Lyme Disease back in July of 2016. It may never pose a problem, but it is something to keep in mind for my future years. I am registered with the National Association of Louisiana Catahoulas, Inc and have the documentation to prove it. I don't like thunderstorms, but otherwise LOVE the outdoors. I am very active, so it would be best for me to go into a home with active parents who can exercise with me. I am a very very good boy and am hoping to find my future home! http://www.greatriverrescue.com/adoptable-dogs/Visit http://www.greatriverrescue.com/adoption-2/ to learn more about our adoption services.
