BREED: Terrier mix
GENDER: Female (spayed)
AGE: Born 5/21/15
COLOR: Beige & White
BIO: Hi there, my name is Rosie. I am a one year old Heinz 57 (vet thinks possibly Basenji, Lab, Terrier mix). I originally came from Alabama when I was a puppy. I was surrendered to SCBR by an older couple that adopted me from the Humane Society. They truly loved me, but didn’t take into consideration that I was so young and they were not physically able to supply me with the energy that it takes to raise a puppy. They put me on a social media page and received a ton of replies, but none of the inquiries were what they wanted for me. They desperately wanted me to go to a home that had my best interest at heart, they wanted more for me and knew that theirs was not the ideal situation. I am a sweet girl that can run like the wind. I have had basic obedience and agility classes and had been taken to doggy day care, which I absolutely loved. I am submissive and very calm in the house and in the car. I get along fabulously with children (preferably over 9yro) and other dogs. My foster Mom feels that I am missing something in my life and that piece is a dog buddy, and I would have to go to a home with another dog that is also looking for a companion and is willing to run and play. When I am with another dog I am in my element. I am desperately looking for a playmate and companion to share my love of life with. Especially another dog that loves to run and play and that leads an active lifestyle with lots of energy to spare. I have never chewed up anything. I am a little shy when meeting people for the first time and I need a bit of confidence building, but would truly make a loving companion for the right family. I not only love to play, I also love to cuddle. I know some basic commands and love to go for walks. So if you are looking for a new best friend and loving companion – look no further – I am your girl. I am house trained, crate trained, up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm negative, micro-chipped (w/lifetime registration). Thunderstorms, vacuum cleaners, load noises do not bother me. I am currently being fostered in Dryden, MI. You MUST have a completely fenced and secured yard (six foot fence & gate – not electric or invisible) in order to adopt me. I was adopted out once with a standard cyclone fence and could clear the fence without hesitation. Not cat friendly.

BIO: Hi there, please meet Tipper. She was surrendered to SCBR along with her sister, Oreo, due to the unexpected passing of their Dad a month ago. They were both purchased from a quality breeder when they were puppies. They both have lead a very pampered life. After a long, hard month, it was decided by the family that it would be in both of their best interests to find a forever home of their own. They do not have to be adopted out together. The family, as well as their life-long groomer, feels that they will do just fine – maybe even better – if they are apart. Tipper loves belly rubs and gives kisses of thanks. Just a little cuddle bug. We feel Tipper is taking the loss of her beloved Dad a little harder, and has been a little more upset with the recent changes in their lives. Tipper is housetrained, very easy to groom, UTD on all vaccinations, very healthy, heart-worm negative, crate trained and micro-chipped w/lifetime registration. We are looking for quiet homes with no children, or children 12yrs or older. Tipper gets along well with ”dog friendly” cats, but she does not need another dog in her life. She deserves her own family that she doesn't have to share. Tipper can be a “couch potato”. She does love going for walks and to cuddle. They were both very well taken care of and loved tremendously by their Dad. Tipper is a little more vocal and more of a watchdog than Oreo. So if you are looking for a very loving and devoted companion, please consider Tipper (Oreo was already adopted). Put the sparkle back into your life as well as hers. She has so much love to offer, she just needs someone to share it with. Currently Tipper is being fostered in Almont, MI. You MUST have a completely fenced and secure yard. Tipper is currently being fostered in Almont, MI. Tipper was originally listed as "adoption pending", however the person that was interested in her was in a bad car accident and went to the hospital. Tipper will not be available for adoption until 9/28 because her Foster Mom will be unavailable until then. Tipper is housetrained, very easy to groom, UTD on all vaccinations, very healthy, heart-worm negative, crate trained and micro-chipped w/lifetime registration.

GENDER: Male (neutered)
AGE: Born 8/19/11
COLOR: Fawn/Blonde natural ears and tail
BIO: Hi there, my name is Theodore. SCBR had been unsuccessfully trying to rescue me since February of 2016. My Mom passed away suddenly and I was left at home with her son, who didn’t want me or want to take care of me. Finally one of the son’s co-workers managed to get me because the son had threatened to let me loose in hopes I would be hit and killed by a car. The co-worker contacted SCBR and asked if they would take me if he could get him from the family. Finally, I was saved and turned over to SCBR. Not only was I intact when SCBR took me to the vet, I was not up to date on any of my vaccinations, heartworm tested, on any heartworm or flea prevention. I was infested with fleas, anemic (due to the flea infestation), malnourished and dehydrated. I also have an enlarged prostate gland which may be due to the fact that only one of my testicles has dropped. I am on antibiotics now and when they neuter me and do surgery to retrieve my other testicle we are hoping that this will eliminate my enlarged prostate gland. With the neglect that I had endured since my Mom passed away everyone was so surprised at how loving and friendly I am. I get along great with older children and other dogs. I just want to be near people and be loved. I do walk fairly well on a leash. I appear to be housetrained because I am very neat and clean in my kennel run. I am just the sweetest guy you have ever seen. No one is sure exactly what I am mixed with, the vet thinks it could be a Wheaten Terrier and/or Shepherd, but one of my parents were definitely a Bouvier. I do have a long tail, even though you can’t see it in these pictures. I get along very well with all the other dogs at the facility and just want to play with them. I am very loving and attentive with children as well as adults. I walk fairly well on a leash and love, love, love to cuddle. By the time I am adopted I will be neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm checked and on preventative and micro-chipped (w/lifetime registration). So, if you are looking for someone to be your life-long and loving companion – I am your guy. I am perfectly happy as long as I am with someone. There is a possibility I would get along with cats, but it would just depend on the circumstances. I am currently being fostered in Imlay City, MI. You MUST have a completely fenced and secured yard (not electric) in order to adopt me.
