Genie Teen Pup- Part of the G x 7 Litter - IntakeVideo- sponsored for pull fees




Blackie (now Genie) loves to run. You have to really watch her when you open the fence gate. She will dive passed your legs. She’s a fast runner. Catching her is like trying to catch a piglet, she squeals and wiggles. She thinks it is all fun and games. She may snap at you when you grab her. It is not to bite, she is nippy in her personality when she is playing and excited. She is what they call mouthy I think. She will put your hand/wrist in her mouth when playing, which can scare some people. She loves to be outside and needs a large securely fenced yard to burn energy in. She’s smart, so I was always pretty lenient with her because she makes good decisions, except for running at the gate.  She’s really good at keeping herself occupied. Stuffed animals are a must for her. She likes having an older dog to hang around, more so than hanging with the puppies. Not many people around here fence in their animals and she loved when other dogs came to visit. She is good at meeting new dogs. She likes meeting new people too. She likes to run though, as I stated, and can approach a new person running then jump up and mouth their hand, which frightens some people. She would be good with a more mature active dog, large fenced yard with lots of outdoor play time, experienced dog owner, and older kids that are not easily knocked down. 

More about this litter:  They are social dogs, not unsocialized dogs. They are scared to be surrendered to shelter. They were in foster 3 months and had 50 acres to run on in Clio. This is a big adjustment.  They were around two other dogs and fine with them.  They did fine with 12 year old girl, a six year old girl, and a 5 year old boy.  They were around two indoor cats, two outdoor cats, and a mother cat with kittens out behind the garage that is feral. They may chase an outdoor cat at first intro but will stop that with redirection and will not hurt them.  Genie is part of the Clio litter. She has some hair loss from demedex.   HW-; 6/16; female; cattle dog max; 8-9 mos; 28lbs.  

Gemini Teen Pup- Part of the G x 7 Litter- IntakeVideo VideoJuly VideoJuly- sponsored for pull fees. VideoWithVolunteer VideoWithVolunteer





Terry (now Gemini)  was originally named because of her ears. When she was little they flopped down in perfect triangles (they mostly perk up now). She holds her own really well. She was the first one that was comfortable venturing out by herself. Her name soon became Scary Terry. She would jump at everything, anything in the grass that moved, the shutter sound on a camera, another dog walking up behind her, even treats if you tossed one to her. She has gotten better with this but can still at times spook herself. She liked plants? There used to be a really sparse bush next to the house that she loved. She would lay in it all the time and no one else was allowed to go near it. She’d pounce at them, if they did. The plant eventually died, no doubt from being crushed by her lol. She can be a little rough with the others in play, mainly Blackie (hence the scratch mark on her head) and Rosie. Terry likes to get her way among her siblings. She gets along with Whiteface really well, so she is maybe best matched with dogs more on the submissive side.

Raina (now Genny)  can be a bit of a handful lol. She will run inside, rest a bit, then right back outside, unless it is raining and she wants no part of that. She likes to come inside, steal something, then rush out the door with it. She could truthfully steal anything she can carry...a pillow, a towel, stuffed animals, shoes, water bottles...whatever might be around. She can be a really sneaky puppy, hence, the handful lol. If you can catch her before she gets out the door with it, she’ll drop it and continue running like nothing happened. She can also be an escape artist. She’s good at wiggling through small spaces, spaces you think she couldn't fit. She will even wiggle back in if she thinks she can before she is seen. If you catch her, or she thinks she doesn’t have time to wiggle through before you get to her, she lays down next to the fence in a ball as small as possible and just eyes you, staying completely still. She really doesn't want to be in trouble for being mischievous, and she doesn't need a lot of redirection to stop what she is doing, but she does enjoy mischief lol. She is shy around new people but will warm up and will even faster if there is another dog to play with. She’s really friendly with other dogs. When she gets to know a person, she loves being affectionate. She will jump up and she loves to lick you. Best matched with an older dog that has good energy level for play outside but is mature enough to not be up to puppy mischievous.

Gidget- Teen Pup- VideoAug16- Sponsored for pull fees




12/26; 3 mos old; Arrived as a stray with 6 other siblings.   Pictures from Aug 2018


End of Dec 2017 arrival.  Very shy.  Pictures from Sept 2018.  About a year old 9/2018


Update May 29: Gregg is a G-Pup that came into the shelter VERY scared of people in December of 2017. He continues to come more and more out of his shell daily. He is about 9-10 months old (end of May). Up to date on his shots and  is Neutered. He finds most confidence with other dogs. He does WONDERFUL with both males and females of any size. He is very submissive. He is crate trained and house broken. He is beginning to understand that people aren’t around to hurt him. G-Man is also wonderful with children. He is a little scared of cats so he ignores them completely.   

Gregg is still very much a work in progress!  Arriving in foster early May,  certainly he has made GREAT strides as he works towards become the perfect canine pet companion.    Gregg really loves hanging out with other dogs.  In his video, he's acting a bit more reserved in general as he is more shy/cautious around his male foster dad vs his female foster mom.  When around foster mom,  Gregg is working the crowd of other dogs and actively engaged in play time.   Gregg is motivated only by human food!  This guy knows the good stuff!  A regular dog snack ie a bone, beef strip, or cookie does not get his attention but offer him a nicely warmed hot dog and he's first in the line up of the other resident dogs wanting to take that snack from his human.    In his foster home,  Gregg enjoys following the other dogs around.  He is not inclined to want to sit in the room where the humans are but rather goes wherever the pack is.  In part, this is why we feel it's VERY important that his new home is pre-stockd with a dog or other dogs to help him settle him and allow him to learn by watching.    For a dog who has gone for so long without any real human contact,  we are super excited about his progress thus far. Stayed tuned for more updates!  12/29 intake; AC stray; male; lab mix 

Update June 1:  With foster mom heading out of town for a few days,  I was asked to try a sleepover at a new home and to be very brave.  Well, by the looks of things, I think I did a really nice job.  Initially very tentative, once I saw another dog in the home it was smooth sailing for me and I broke into a grin. 

Gregory Teen Pup- Part of G x 7 Litter- IntakeVideo VideoJuly VideoJuly

VideoInKennel- sponsored for pull fees



Info about Gregory (known as Buddy with the foster):  Buddy is very aptly named. He likes to play and has puppy antics. He can be a little puppy stubborn but does redirect. He loves a chew bone. He gets excited when the cats run and jump and thinks he can do it too. He can get a little scared meeting new people but warms up nicely when they come down to his level. He’s a foodie and will gladly taste test anything you’re cooking so his belly is the way to his heart. He really likes quiche and casseroles. He does have a little sweet tooth and it was indulged with some cookie treats. He expects food every time he hears a wrapper lol, especially hot dog wrappers. He snores and he likes to lay on his back with all of his legs spread out. He likes to wake up in the middle of the night and put his head on the edge of the bed for you to pet him. He’d do best with as much outdoor access as possible as he likes to run and play. The rain does not bother him, he enjoys it. He is not opposed to mud and dirt lol. He loves to sit on the front porch during cool nights. He is a precious Buddy.  Gregory is one of the Clio dogs. They are all very scared. He is HW negative. cattle dog mix; hw-; 6/16; 8-9 mos old; 40lbs

VideoJuly VideoJuly VideoWithGem- sponsored for pull fees VideoJuly



Ryder (now Grover)  looks like his Mom. He was a sad puppy when he arrived 3 months ago. He was attached to his Mom and he went through a grief to not have her. He’d do best sticking by Rosie a bit during this transition. Rosie assumed the roll of his caretaker when they left Mom. She will bring him some comfort during this time. He will require some patience, it may take little more time for him to warm up to you, but he will. He tends to stay off to the side while the other dogs run around together. This is just his personality, not being anti-social. He simply likes observing and he is more independent in exploring his environment. He is calm and well-behaved. He is shy to approach new dogs but seems to instinctively be drawn to female dogs, maybe as a replacement to his mom. He would find comfort in a home with a female dog partner. He would be a great match for a person with land for him to manage and explore, a person not looking for a clingy dog, but a faithful companion by their side.
