New adoptable dog: MILLIE

Millie2

Millie

Millie is a gorgeous, smart fox hound mix girl. She was born 12/7/09, and came to Forget Me Not from a home where she was kept inside a crate at night, then tied outside all day long. Millie is a girl in search of direction; she wants so much to have something to do, and to be able to please you and receive praise for performing her job well. Unfortunately, she knows absolutely no commands, nor has she figured out house manners yet. She longs for attention and affection, and we have all grown used to hearing her loud and incessant baying start as soon as she knows a human has entered the building. During her time with the volunteers, she is vocally quiet, but very excited; she tends to jump up and is not good on leash, but . . . → Read More: New adoptable dog: MILLIE

 

New adoptable dog: AYLA

Aylasmall

Ayla is a beautiful hound/pitbull mix, about 5 years old, who was abandoned by her owner – they went “on vacation” two months ago and left some friends in charge of bringing food to Ayla, who was left outside; unfortunately, despite being contacted, the owners have never come back from “vacation” and the property they were renting was sold, leaving Ayla homeless.

Ayla isn’t very fond of other dogs, though she apparently lived with some before (the other dogs on the property disappeared, unfortunately); we are able to teach her to tolerate the other shelter dogs, but don’t recommend adding her to a home with a dominant dog unless you are a very experienced pack leader type. She definitely is a “people” dog – she’d much rather be with a person than with another dog. She has been reported to be not very good with livestock, . . . → Read More: New adoptable dog: AYLA

 

New adoptable dogs: Brutus and Bella

Brutus and Bella

Brutus and Bella

Meet Brutus and Bella, a happy-go-lucky pair of hounds. This brother and sister are tightly bonded, and would love to find a home together – but can be separated if needed.  They are energetic, loud, affectionate, loud, smart, and did we mention, loud? There’s nothing quite like a pair of happy hounds baying to greet a visitor.

Brutus

Bella

They are definitely scent hounds, with their noses to the ground 95% of the time.

 

New adoptable dog: TRUDY

Trudy9

Trudy

Trudy is a sweet mid-sized dog who is a definite “LeMutte” original creation! The vet called her a golden retriever mix, but she looks more like a hound/shepherd mix overall; she came in as a starving stray, all her ribs and her hipbones are prominent (but we’ll fatten her up in no time). She seems very grateful for the soft place to sleep and the regular meals.

We are estimating Trudy’s birth date as 2/8/09, making her about 2 1/2 years old – though her teeth are very white, so she may be a little younger. Trudy has an odd little “hitch” in her gait – when she gets moving fairly quickly, her rear legs sort of swing to the right side, and when she runs, she sort of “hops” with her hind legs while running normally with her . . . → Read More: New adoptable dog: TRUDY
