BIO: Hi everybody, my name is Gunner. I was found 3/10/15 on I-675 during a torrential downpour by a lineman that was out trying to restore power to the area. The rain and wind was so blinding that he wasn’t sure what it was that he saw flying thru the air in front of him. He pulled his truck over and realized I had been hit by a car and thrown to the side of the highway. He wrapped me up and drove me to the nearest emergency vet clinic. Thankfully I didn’t have any broken bones or internal bleeding, I did have a mild fracture in my left front leg and mild pulmonary contusions, and have healed from my injuries. Besides being scared out of my mind, quite confused and hungry, all the x-rays came out fine. They did think that I had been on the run for a while because of what they did see in my stomach when they did the x-rays. There was a lot of gravel and road debris. The lineman contacted SCBR to see if they could possibly take me in because he was unable to keep me, but couldn’t bear the thought of just leaving me on the side of the highway. I appear to be housetrained, I am UTD on all vaccinations, heartworm negative and micro-chipped w/lifetime registration. I get along well with older children and with most dogs. Possibly due to the fact that I was running on the freeway with all the traffic noise, I am still a little timid when it comes to loud or unfamiliar noises. I do walk well on leash and love to play. I also love to cuddle and to be petted. If you are looking for that special someone to share your life and love with – I might be just what you are looking for. You must have a completely fenced and secure yard (not electric or invisible fence) in order to adopt me. I am currently being fostered in Imlay City, MI. Not cat friendly.

BIO: Hi there, my name is Jackie. I was rescued from a high-kill shelter in North Carolina in 2016. My Foster Mom saw my post on Face Book and I touched her heart in a really big way. Thanks to the tremendous efforts and great teamwork of other rescues, I was pulled, housed, groomed and transported from North Carolina to Ohio. My Foster Mom met one of the transport teams and brought me home to Michigan in January 2016. It was a very long ride and of course the weather was horrendous (blizzard) but we all made it back home safe and sound. I am just the happiest girl in the world. I absolutely love everyone and everything. I love belly rubs and I love to play. I love being outdoors and would make a fantastic walking partner. I am housetrained, walk well on a leash (with a harness) and ride well in the car. I would love nothing more than to have my very own “forever” home and family. Regretfully, I was adopted out to a family just long enough for my vaccinations to expire, but was supposedly returned because they didn’t have the proper amount of time to spend with me and they felt I had became too needy of their time. (Come to find out when we took her back in to get her vaccinations updated and heartworm tested again – she tested positive for heartworm. We keep all of our rescues on heartworm, flea & tick preventative while in our care. When they are adopted out the new owners receive a one month supply of these preventatives with the understanding they will continue as directed. Well, obviously that didn’t happen. Jackie was tested five times in a row for heartworm because the results kept going back and forth between positive and negative. We decided to go ahead and have her treated for heartworm just to be safe. Jackie is finally heartworm free and after months of painful treatments, having to be kept still while she recovering and the additional financial burden that was unnecessarily put on the rescue – Jackie is now able to be adopted.) So if you are in need of a loving and loyal companion, or are sad, lonely or depressed, look no further – I am your girl. I have all kinds of love to give, I just need someone to share it with. I am very neat and clean and have never had any accidents in the house. I must go to a home WITHOUT CATS or small animals because I am very prey driven so if you have a problem with cats or squirrels in your yard, I can take care of that problem. I would be best suited in a home with adults that are looking for a loving companion. I do love playing with children and other dogs. I am quite satisfied in just being your one-and-only. I am good with children, but because of my high prey drive, if they run, I will probably chase them. In the house I am very reserved and will just lay by your feet or on a rug. I am a little skittish at first, probably from being bounced around so much. I don’t do well with a lot of commotion, it makes me very anxious. Everyone that has met me, vets included, have remarked about how good of a girl I am. I am so quiet in the house that if you didn’t see me, you wouldn’t even realize I was there. Won’t you give me the opportunity to show you how correct they are? I am UTD on all vaccinations, micro-chipped (w/lifetime registration). You must have a completely fenced and secure yard (not electric or invisible) in order to adopt me. I must go to a home WITHOUT CATS or small animals, I am very prey driven. I am currently being fostered in Imlay City, MI.
|NAME: NAHLIA BREED: Doberman Pinscher GENDER: Female (spayed) AGE: Born 6/16/15 COLOR: Black & Tan, docked tail, natural ears WEIGHT: 57# BIO: Hi there, my name is Nahlia. I was fed, watered and saved by a neighbor because my former family moved and left me chained outside all winter without any protection. I had a sister, but no one knows what happened to her once my family left us there. I get along fine with people and older children. Due to the fact that I never knew where, when or if my next meal was coming, I am very food attentive especially if there is another dog or people around me when I am eating or if someone else is eating something. I am like a canine vacuum cleaner when it comes to food but now that I am learning that I will get fed regularly I am getting a little better. I would be best suited in a home where there are no other animals, and with a family that is familiar with Dobermans. I am housetrained but I do not crate well. I know basic commands and walk well on a leash. I am very playful and enjoy being around people. I really am a good girl, I just need to get my confidence restored and my manners worked on since I was not cared for very well by my previous owner. There has been quite a lot of interest shown in adopting me, however most the interested parties did not meet the requirements that the rescue has set for me to be properly adopted. I am UTD on all vaccinations, heartworm negative and micro-chipped w/lifetime registration. So if you are looking for a devoted companion, I just might be the right girl for you. You must have a completely fenced and secure yard (not electric or invisible fence) in order to adopt me. I am currently being fostered in Imlay City, MI. Not cat friendly.|

BIO: Hi there, my name is Sheba. I was surrendered by my Dad because of the amount of hours he worked and him not thinking it was fair for me to be crated for so many hours a day. I am good with and play well with children and other dogs my size. I love toys and to be loved and paid attention to. I am housetrained, know basic commands: sit, stay, come and can give “high fives”. I will go to the door and sit and whine to let you know I need to go outside. I walk very well on a leash and crate well. I am very playful and enjoy being around people. I am a really good girl and have so much potential. I am able to climb 4’ fences in order to be with people or other dogs on the other side. I have also shown that I am capable of opening doors and letting myself into and out of rooms if I think there might be someone or something on the other side of the door that I might be interested in. I would probably make a good agility dog and a phenomenal walking partner. My Foster Mom thinks I am an absolute love. I am UTD on all vaccinations, heartworm negative and micro-chipped w/lifetime registration. So if you are looking for a new best friend, I just might be the girl for you. You must have a completely fenced and secure yard (not electric or invisible fence) in order to adopt me. I am currently being fostered in Imlay City, MI. Not cat friendly.
