Rescue Me ID: 17-02-18-00118Scooter (male)

Canaan Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Scooter is special needs sort of... but not really, as he is our fastest runner!, so loving, starved for attention, is very agile despite he is missing his rear leg. When he came to us, he had been shot and his leg mangled, and had facial scars, he was young still under 2, we took him to doc and they amputated, he is totally rehabbed, mentally and physically and now is a very happy kinda guy. He is a bit pushy with other dogs because he likes to play too rough, so they typically don't care much for him unless they are his size or larger, then they play just fine. He does great with dogs of his size or larger and the very little ... (Read More)dogs over 60 pounds or under 20 go great with a side of Scooter! He is a real sweetheart, highly intelligent, and loves to run and play outdoors, snuggle next to you on the sofa, and when he sleeps in the human bed, he lays still and keeps your feet warm. Sometimes he will chew his stuffed toys but usually after he has carried them around for days first. HE will not chew anything unless he gets bored. HE is always in a good mood and smiley. HE is about 50 pounds of pure joy and excitement. HE is so happy to be alive. He lives every moment to it's fullest. I would not consider taking him to a dog park though. If you have another dog I would suggest it be similar in size or bigger than him so that Scooters rough way he plays will not be an issue. WE don't know what mix he is...but guessing he has a lot of sugar in there. No medications, he is simply just an amputee. He really loves the girls, so a girlfriend to play with would be super good.

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-13-00007Hank Williams (male)

Canaan Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hank is a sensitive, highly interactive and intelligent dog that needs a leader as his human. He likes to lean up against you and be your 'baby', look you in the eye and thinks the bed is his :). This was a Death Row dog that is supposed to be a 4 year old Shepherd/ Canaan Mix, but might have Basenji . Only DNA would prove his actual breeds. The shelter said Canaan mix, but I think he looks like he might have some German Shepherd. He weighs approx 49-55 lbs. All shots current, neutered and HW Negative. I've worked with him, trained, and behavior mod'd him quite a bit, and he has been highly progressive. He has started to be good with my ... (Read More)dogs and cats, and needs a slow introduction. The path he had gone down was very difficult for him and he needs permanence. He knows most the commands and his food aggression is moderate now. Crate feeding will be a constant for him. He will make a great companion. Home Inspection(50 mile radius)and vet references required. Features: Obedient, potty trained, crate trained, good on leash....INDOOR ONLY HOME (Less)
