“Dear Forever Family,

“I can NOT wait to meet YOU!!! After being at the shelter since April I finally got to go to a HOME with my foster family. I LOVE HOME. My foster mom says I was meant to have my very own because I am a special girl. I can’t wait to get one.

“Here at my foster home, I get to sleep in my own crate. My bed is so cushy I really like to be on it in my crate. I don’t cry or bark when I am in there, but I did chew on my bed just a little (I wanted to see what made it so cushy) so my foster mom wrapped a sheet around it and she lets me take keep a stuffed toy to chew on instead. I have a BONE too. And a basket full of toys. I like to take the toys out of the basket one at a time and put them in my crate.

“Every morning when my foster mom comes to get me she says “good morning Leia” and I smile so big my eyes look like they are closed. It makes her laugh. She says my face gets all wrinkled and I look like I have “billy bob teeth”. I don’t know what that means, but it makes her smile and rub me so it must be OK.

“She says I am a smart girl because I am already learning to sit when she asks me to, and because when she gives me treats I take them gently from her. She said I should tell you that I am sweet and affectionate and that I have been nice to every person I have met. I wag my tail like a helicopter when people talk to me. My foster family has 3 boys with lots of friends so I have gotten to meet lots of new people. It was the boys that decided to call me Leia after a PRINCESS in a movie…something about my ears looking like her hair.

“Sometimes when I get very excited I like to put my mouth on your arm or your hand (I don’t think I am supposed to do that because my foster mom squirted me with a water bottle when I did…I didn’t like that so I am trying to remember not to do that anymore). I have already figured out if I go to the door someone will let me out in the yard and since that is where I go potty I just go to the door if I want to potty. I also go to the door if I want to go out and play with my foster brother. I like to run and make him chase me… we wrestle and play tug of war and go for walks together. He can play pretty rough but I don’t mind.

“Before I came to my Foster home I had some other fur friends too, but I am pretty picky about my fur friends, I don’t like every one. So if you already have a dog we should probably meet before you decide if your home can be my home too. I don’t have any cats at my foster house so I am not sure how I feel about them. Maybe I will get a chance to meet one and you can ask my foster mom how I did.

“If you are looking for a happy, smart, pretty, perfect size princess movie star…then I am your girl. Please call or email my foster mom Michele at 919-414-8838 or iammom3b@gmail.com and she will tell you ALL about me.

Cents

Are you blue? I know just what can fix you up … a blue Am Staff Terrier!

Cents is a sweet girl who is almost three and a half years old. While at the shelter, volunteers found her to be one of the gentlest dogs there. She is currently living the good life in foster care, but is really looking for a family of her own to bond with.

“I look forward to meeting you! You will see we make a lot of sense together. Get it, sense, cents. Hee, hee, hee.”

If you are interested in learning more about Cents or to arrange a meet and greet, please email afureverfamily@yahoo.com and we will put you in touch with her foster family.

Lovey is a sweet girl who, at over seven years old, still loves to play and would do best in a family with another playful dog like herself. She’s currently with a wonderful foster family but has been in the shelter system since mid-June 2012! This brown and white brindle Boxer mix loves to play tug-of-war, fetch, monkey-in-the-middle, and wall-ball. (Click each game to find out more.) Once tuckered out, she’s happy to snuggle with you on the couch and watch a movie or if that’s not allowed just lie at your feet.

Lovey’s profile also says she loves people, car rides, chasing squirrels, and giving kisses. Her leash skills are good once she’s had the chance to check all the neighborhood pee-mail or if there’s a squirrel – who can blame a girl for that? Lovey is good with kids, but her exuberance and protective nature make her better suited to older kids. And despite her larger than life pics, she’s actually a perfect size at around 40 pounds.
