Gargoyle is only 6 months old and already faced a rough start. He was rescued from the middle of a highway and is now being fostered on a farm with lots of animal friends. This gentle soul has a lot of puppy in him, but resides nicely with all. If you're a patient, loving family seeking a wonderful puppy, he's your boy.

Ricky, Akita

Ricky's current caretakers say:

Ricky is a sweet, young Akita looking for his forever home. He loves humans but has a high prey drive, so should be the only pet. He needs training but is eager to please.

Ruthie, redbone coonhound and Labrador retriever mix

Ruthie is a sweet female redbone coonhound and Labrador retriever mix staying at Pet Rescue North Inc.

She has been vaccinated and spayed.

Ruthie's current caretakers say:

Ruthie and 15 other pups were abandoned on a deserted, swamp road. Somehow, a Good Samaritan came down this road and rescued all of them. She's about 4 to 6 months old and would make an excellent family pet. If you have a yard and a big heart for hounds, get in touch.

Stella, hound

Stella is a female hound dog currently residing at Pet Rescue North Inc.

She has had all of her shots. She also is spayed and heartworm free. She is currently working on her house training. 

From Stella's current caretaker:

This sweet hound needs a home with a family who can give her time, attention, and a fenced yard where she can run around and play. She gets very nervous with loud noises like thunder and fireworks. Please consider fostering or adopting. We require a home where she will not be crated often and without small children.
