Adopted: Flissie

Quick Facts: Breed: Pocket Pittie Gender: Female, spayed Age: 6 years old Size: 40 pounds Good with… Dogs? See summary Cats? Unknown Kids? Yes, 12+! ***Flissie is not a CDR dog but please fill out an application and it will be forwarded to her rescuer!*** History, Personality, and Why I’m Looking for a New Home Flissie (an affectionate form of Felicity) we think has quite a sad story, even though she is an exceptionally joyful girl (we and her veterinarians have inferred her past based on her condition and her behavior). She probably spent the first two years of her life in a cage, almost all the time. She also must have tried to chew her way out of it based on her having only three remaining canine teeth (we got her the dental surgery she desperately needed). When we adopted her, she had no idea about how to be…

My name is Ebi which rhymes with Debbie and means “shrimp” in Japanese! Haha, I am a little shrimp and as sweet, adorable, and cute as can be! History and Why I am Looking for a New Home In 2018 I was transported, along with my two nursing puppies, from a shelter in Kentucky to CDR, after being found as a stray.

My current family adopted me from there, and I have been happy in their home with mom, dad, and 2 little kids since. Unfortunately, as the kids have gotten bigger and more rambunctious (they are now 3 and 6 years old), I have gotten a bit stressed and overly excited by their enthusiasm, and as I try to both join in, and police, their play, things have gotten a little…

Unknown Kids? 12+ (I like a peaceful home setting) Bo is a super sweet, Hilarious little guy. History I lived with a man for the last 10 years of my life. Nothing bad happened to me there, but not much all that good either. Then my person got a girlfriend and she didn’t like dogs, so my person took me to a high kill shelter in KY where he lived. Super scary and awful for me.
