BIO: Hi there, please meet Jabba. He was surrendered to a shelter in the Upper Peninsula when his owner passed away. When surrendered he weighed almost 100# an d looked fantastic. Due to the amount of time that he was kept in a crate/kennel he has lost a third of his weight. Jabba is a tall boy and should easily weigh between 95-100#. Right now he looks almost anorexic – you can see and feel almost every bone in his body. Jabba is an absolute love when on a leash or with people. Due to his excessive confinement he cannot be crated or kenneled, he will thrash and throw himself against the walls and chew on the fencing trying to gain his freedom. Because of his confinement he is not good with other dogs or animals. Once he is out of his kennel he gives kisses, hugs and just wants to be your second skin. We are looking for that special family that is willing to give Jabba the love and attention that he craves and that he will return to them two-fold. Jabba is too young to have had to endure the solitary confinement that he has been forced to endure through no fault of his own. Jabba is housetrained, UTD on all vaccinations, heartworm negative and micro-chipped. With the right family, patience and understanding, in time he may be accepting of other animals and kenneled for a short period of time – however, until that time comes we feel it is in his best interests to be an “only child”. He is very capable of jumping a standard cyclone fence with little or no hesitation, so if you live next door to another dog, there is a strong possibility that he will scale your fence and possibly hurt that animal or himself. When it comes to people and older children he is an absolute marshmallow. Jabba does not like loud noises, yelling etc. when he is confined and becomes very antsy if he is not with a person. He does ride well in a car and is completely satisfied just being with the people he loves. His caregiver and her entire family is head over heels with Jabba and as hard as it will be to see him go, they are looking forward to the day that Jabba gets his very own forever home. So if you are lonely, looking for a loving companion, are patient and understanding and there is not a lot of chaos or distraction in your home, Jabba is the answer to your prayers. Jabba is NOT cat friendly. You MUST have a completely fenced and secure yard in order to adopt any of our rescues (we do not accept electric fences). Jabba is currently being fostered in Imlay City, MI.

BIO: Hi there, my name is Chester. I am being surrendered to rescue because my Mom is unable to take care of me any longer and wants me to get a new loving forever home like I deserve. I am housetrained. I love to play ball and go for walks. I am really good on a leash. I know basic commands. I am energetic and I want to learn and to please my owner.
I get along well with other dogs and would make an outstanding companion for someone to walk with, or just sit around and watch TV. Because of my size I would be best suited with older children. I get along fine with people. So if you are looking to open your heart and home to a handsome fellow – please consider adopting me. I am UTD on vaccinations and heartworm negative. You must have a completely fenced and secure yard in order to adopt me. I am currently being fostered in Imlay City, MI. Never been around cats, so am assuming not cat friendly.
BREED: Yellow Labrador Retriever
AGE: Born 1/11/14
BIO: Hi there, my name is Scout. I was surrendered to SCBR because my family could no longer keep me. I get along great with young children. I am still a little timid around large men – but my foster family is helping me to adjust. I am playful, energetic, very attentive, inquisitive, loving and smart. I am house-trained and crate trained. I get along great with everyone and everything as long as they are able to keep up with me. I would do great in any family as long as the children were not toddlers because I am still a little rambunctious and “puppy brained”, enough that I could possibly knock them over or trip them unintentionally. My foster family is currently working on my leash training. I LOVE to play, especially with my cloth Frisbee. I am UTD on all my vaccinations and have been neutered. I have been heartworm tested (negative) and on heartworm preventative. I am a really good boy and would make a wonderful companion and addition to your family. You must have a completely fenced and secure yard in order to adopt me (we will not accept electric or invisible fences). I am currently being fostered In Imlay City, MI.
