Toby

Quick Facts: Breed: Beagle mix Gender: Male, Neutered Age: 7 years old Size: 40 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Yes! Kids? Yes! Hi, my name is Toby and I am incredibly affectionate, loving and sweet-tempered! History I landed in a high-kill shelter in Kentucky. The shelter didn’t note whether I was found stray or had been surrendered, but the rescue folks are guessing that I had been lucky to have had a nice owner, but that maybe I got lost or maybe he/she died or had to go into a nursing home and there was no one to care for me. I clearly have been treated very well by humans because I LOVE humans, and I show no fears or concerns about people, dogs, or cats. I just smile and wag-wag-wag at everyone! Personality I am silly and sweet and incredibly friendly and very affectionate! I wake up every…

Yes! 7+ years Hello! My name is Sage, and I am incredibly sweet and playful girl who loves being outside and exploring new things! History We adopted Sage in April from a shelter in Tennessee where she had been for about 3 months after being surrendered by her previous owner. We don’t know much about her previous life, other than that she was surrendered. She is awesome, we love her, but without a fenced yard, we are unable to keep her safe (see details below). We hate to have to rehome her, she’s so wonderful, but want to be clear that it’s not her fault, we just don’t have the fenced yard situation that she requires…

History I am the most delightful, adorable, sweet, funny, silly, loving, affectionate, and friendly little guy! I used to live in Katmandu, Nepal, on the streets (like a ton of dogs there), and life was awfully hard. I had no idea how much harder it could get, but then I was struck by a motorbike or motorcar and became paralysed from the waist down. Oh boy, that was really rough. But when faced with challenges, you just kind of figure it out, so I learned to drag myself around pretty well using my front arms! Thankfully, a wonderful Nepal rescue group found me dragging myself around like this, scooped me up, and…

My name is Lilly (aka Lily Bear, Little Bear, and Cutie Pants), and I am ridiculously adorable, sweet, loving, and very smart! Background I was rescued from an overcrowded KY shelter when I was only 4 months old and have been here in foster care with CDR ever since.

Clearly, my first few months of life were rough, but you’d never know it, as I am the happiest, sweetest, most adoring and adorable girl around! Personality I am a super friendly, happy, playful and affectionate girl! Everyone always says how…
