These dogs no longer have to worry about getting a little muddy! There is a fresh layer of hay in the runs, and the dogs love burying their noses in it.
Bandit is a super-cute five-year-old Labrador Retriever mix who was very happy to go for a walk around the property today. Like our friend Stitch, Bandit would do well with a taller fence around his future yard. He led the way on our walk today, doing lots of exploring.
Although Bandit has lots of energy, he stopped next to me when I sat down on the bench so I could pet him. He led us to both ends of the property and stopped at the gates leading to the outside world, eagerly hoping that we could go for a longer walk. It was hard to tell him that it would have to wait for another day.
Bandit is ready to find a new buddy to love! Will it be you? Visit Orphans of the Storm® and take him for a stroll.
Horatio has a big name for a little dog. He is a four-year-old Italian Greyhound/Terrier mix with tufts of fluffy gray hair on his otherwise brindle face, and he was incredibly excited to come outside with me.
Being part Italian Greyhound, this little guy can run! He enjoyed chasing after the tennis ball, but wasn’t so interested in bringing it back. He loved bounding around inside the run and would come back to check in with me every so often.
This little guy is perfect for someone who wants big-dog energy in a little-dog body. Horatio is small enough to pick up (but not too small), but is more than happy to romp and play with you. You’ll be sure to stop and say hello to him because he’s too adorable to walk past!
Max is a new arrival to Orphans of the Storm®, and he has a sad story with a hopefully happy ending. This eight-year-old German Shepherd mix was adopted four years ago, but his family grew too big to have enough time or space for him anymore. This sweetheart deserves another chance with a new family who knows they will be able to take care of him for the rest of his life!
Max was jumping up and down inside his kennel when he saw me approach, but calmed down as soon as he was let out on a leash. He walked well without pulling too much, and it’s obvious that he’s well-trained and knows how to be a perfect pet.
Even though he’s eight years old, he doesn’t show any signs of old age—except for his calm demeanor. He’s one of the best fetch partners I’ve ever had: he not only brought the ball back to me, but dropped it right in between my feet and waited patiently for me to lean over, pick it up, and throw it again.
We also had some very nice downtime together. He sat on the bench next to me and it was like we were just relaxing on a couch, watching TV. His face was just a few inches from mine as I pet him, and we enjoyed each other’s company. He’s already trained, already past his rowdy puppy stage, and all ready to find his new forever home! Please don’t walk past this absolute sweetie just because of his age; he’ll make you fall in love with him in a matter of minutes if you give him the chance.
