Poker Chip is another one of our amazing adoptable dogs who had a wonderful sleepover with a host family over last week's long holiday weekend! Check out his host's fabulous feedback about their sleepover:"I had the pleasure of hosting Poker Chip this past weekend. He was an absolutely wonderful dog and we had a fantastic time together. He is house trained and so sweet and playful.Whoever adopts Poker Chip will be so lucky to have a best friend for life. He is a total love bug and is just as happy to snuggle on the couch as he is to play fetch with a tennis ball or walk in the park. In fact, he may like snuggles even more than other things!He is a bit shy at first, but give him a few minutes to warm up and he’s a true lab that loves everyone he meets and was friendly with all of the dogs too. He was timid about going into the elevator in the stairwell, but love and a little patience goes a long way with him. He’s very smart, and I think he would be easy to train. He liked car rides and learned to jump in and out after one try! He did great sleeping through the night. He was great in his crate, but I also let him sleep in the bed and he just snuggled by my feet and slept all night without an issue. He is so affectionate, playful, loyal, and sweet, all the qualities of a lab. He’s happy just to be near you and didn’t seem as high energy as I was concerned, he might be for my small apartment. Once he felt more comfortable here after a day, he was very chill. He didn’t mind that I don’t have a yard or a lot of space for him to play, he was just happy to be with me and to play in the living room or chew on a bone. Everyone that we met remarked about how sweet he was!"Poker Chip is adored by all volunteers and hosts, and whoever is lucky enough to adopt him will have no shortage of love. Come meet him today and learn more about Poker Chip by checking out his bio on our website: loom.ly/Jpy2080Did you know you can host an amazing dog like Poker Chip each weekend?

Lets start wagging! It is happy tail time. I think it is clear that this is a project well done 😉. We can also only imagine what mischief he got himself into to the point he has been brilliantly renamed to Kaos 😆Kaos's (fka: Sherlock) Update: "We adopted our Holiday Hound in December 2022. We renamed him 2 days in because of some household mischief, so he is now named Kaos. He has always been a sweet boy. Now he's a GOOD, sweet boy. We are fortunate to have a lovely neighbor who is a professional dog trainer. She gave us the right tools, knowledge and plan to get and keep him in track. He is crate trained, eager to please and catches on quickly. Happy to say he and Kasey Cat are getting along well (that was the toughest bit). My husband picked Kaos out. He'd never had his own pup...but I'm thrilled to say project "A Boy and His Dog" is complete. Even having a weekend together in Asheville ...hiking in the Blue Ridge."#adopted #weloveourvolunteers #happytails ... See MoreSee Less

Happy Tail Friday! We are hearing from Willow today and love seeing how happy and well she is doing!! "Willow is doing well. She likes to cuddle on the couch, play with her toys, and wrestle with a couple of older doggie friends when she gets the chance. She thinks her pibble friend is the best thing ever and follows him around and copies what he does. She's not too old to take a nap on Mama's lap."#adopted #weloveourvolunteers #happytails ...

Tassel loves getting spoiled by our volunteers but he’d really love a family of his own! This handsome guy came to us with a deformed front leg, so his life has gotten much better since his amputation and he’s not letting anything slow him down.

He looks so happy….hed be a great love🩵

Tassel loves to run and play with other dogs. When he first arrived he would try to use his deformed front leg, since his amputation he has gotten so much stronger and used to not having that leg. It has been a great transformation to watch. Hoping he finds his family soon!

He’s such a sweet guy

Do you think she could maneuver stairs to a second floor?

He is the sweetest!!

What a sweet pup!!❤️

Love this sweet boy

💯Nothing slows this handsome dude down! Come meet him!!❤️

Having a bad morning and this made it better 🥰
