Orphans of the Storm® Dogs Against Black Dog Syndrome, Part 2

I am happy to say that all of the black dogs who were featured in Orphans of the Storm® Dogs Against Black Dog Syndrome, Part 1, were adopted shortly after I wrote about them. But there are still plenty of black dogs at the shelter who are happy to prove that fur is just a color! (And a couple brown dogs are also looking for their forever home!) (And I apologize in advance for some of the blurry photos. I blame the rain/mist/fog.)

Blush the two-year-old Labrador Retriever mix has many great qualities. She is much smaller than the average Lab, and a little fluffier. She has bright, inquisitive eyes and ears that perk up when she realizes she gets to come out and play. Even though the snow was still pretty deep for her shorter legs, Blush was happy to romp around.

Blush will stay close to you as long as you’re petting her. She walks well on a leash and is hopeful that someone will come to the shelter soon and fall in love with her. Maybe that someone will be you! UPDATED 2019: Blush was diagnosed with diabetes. Susie’s Senior Dogs has generously sponsored the cost of her future insulin and monitoring expenses for her future family! She gets insulin shots twice a day, which she tolerates quite well and otherwise has a normal, happy doglife!

Blush is hoping that spring brings her a new family!

Winnie the Pooh (or just Winnie for short) the four-year-old Dachshund mix is as cute and lovable as his namesake. Winnie is currently sharing a kennel with Blush, so he too does well with other dogs. When Winnie realized he was about to go for a walk, he started doing a little tap-dance because he just couldn’t contain his excitement.

The snow was a little deep for Winnie’s little legs!

Winnie loves being close to people. He’s happy to be cradled in your arms or just snuggled in general. He also has plenty of energy, though, and seems like a playful guy. Those little legs sure can move! A cutie like Winnie won’t be at the shelter for long, so come in soon to meet him!

Winnie is super adorable

Dottie the one-year-old Rottweiler mix is just a giant lovebug. This big girl is convinced that she is a lapdog. I knelt down to pet her, and she rested her front legs across my lap and seemed perfectly content to stay right there. If you are standing instead of sitting, Dottie will take the opportunity to lean all of her weight against your legs in a not-so-subtle request to pet her. Once she gets to know you a little bit better, she will happily give your nose some doggy kisses.

Although Dottie is large (and may even get a little larger, since she’s only a year old), she doesn’t try to throw her weight around when she’s walking on the leash. She will make a great companion dog! Dottie is currently sharing a kennel with Sage (who is a little more rambunctious than Dottie), so she could go to a home with or without another dog. This big sweetheart is hopeful for her new forever home!

Spring the one-year-old Labrador Retriever mix is a playful pooch who would be much happier in a home of her own. She was so happy to go for a walk that she was bouncing up and down when she first got out. Once she realized we would be out for a while, she settled down and enjoyed sniffing all of the interesting smells. She even found the birdseed by the windows to the cat room, and wanted to help herself to a snack!

Spring gets extra-excited when there are other dogs nearby, but I think that’s because she’s so eager to find someone to play with. Since she’s barely out of puppyhood, this is understandable. Because Spring seems to especially like food, and because she’s a Lab mix, she should be a very quick and eager learner, and will make her new family very happy!

Now onto our two brown dogs for the week:

Jackal the five-year-old Shepherd mix is an extremely gentle dog. She is the perfect companion to have for walking around the neighborhood because she’s so great on a leash, and because she gets along with everybody. She is currently sharing a kennel with Ranger (who was still a little shy at first, but loves to snuggle once he feels comfortable).

Sweet Jackal is a great walking buddy

Jackal is a bit on the tubby side at the moment, but that just means there’s more of her to love! She certainly has plenty of love to offer in return. Jackal is one of those dogs who absolutely loves getting her back and hips scratched. She’ll lean into your hand so she knows you’re getting just the right spot. If you’re looking for a calm dog to welcome into your home, Jackal could be the one for you!

Goose the six-year-old Pit Bull Terrier mix is quite the athlete. He and Nemo used to be neighbors, and they would have contests to see who could jump the highest. Now that they’re in separate wings, they’ve both decided to give their legs a rest. I walked Goose for the first time about a year ago, and he has calmed down considerably since then.

Goose enjoys being out and about

Goose, being an athlete, loves to go for walks. I let him lead the way as he sniffed and explored. (I think melting snow provides extra-good smells for dogs.) Although Goose isn’t particularly fond of other dogs, he is perfectly happy when it’s him and his person. Goose is also pretty gentle when it comes to taking treats from your hand. If you’re looking for a dog who can keep up with you when you exercise, Goose may be your new workout buddy!

Goose loves the camera, and the camera loves him!

  81. I am interested in blush I recently lost my Missy I rescued her from a dog rescue 13 years ago she was my best friend and my baby I’m looking for another dog that can be my best friend and that I can give my love to I’m a 68 year old Widow I live on social security so the cost of the dog would be very important to me at to see whether or not I would be able to adopt one I’m very lonely without my little girl and would really love another companion like her

    • Hi Linda. I’m sorry to hear about your Missy. The adoption fee at Orphans of the Storm is $90, which covers spay/neuter if needed. There may be additional fees depending on what shots, if any, Blush may need before coming home with you. If you call or visit the shelter, the staff will be able to provide you more information on total costs. Thank you for reading! I hope you’re able to find another best friend.
