Name: Lady Bird HFD
Hi, I'm Ladybird! I'm the "pyrfect" little lady. I'm pretty small for a Pyr--70 lbs. I'm about 2 years old and looking for my place in the world. I'm a little reserved after the life I've had so far. My first owners got me for the sole purpose of using me to have puppies. Once my puppies were old enough to sell, I was owner surrendered to the local shelter along with two of my puppies. My foster mom and dad really love me, and they are showing me how much fun belly rubs are. I'm learning that not all people are bad. My foster dad calls me "Smiley" because I smile when I'm happy. I would describe myself as a "country" dog. I'm not quite sure if I'm an LGD yet, but I don't like it in the house either (I've never been in one, so I'm not sure about it yet!) I love being outside and observing my surroundings. My foster mom calls me the perfect lady because I don't mess with anyone or anything, and I'm absolutely no trouble at all. Even the vet was impressed with how well-behaved I am, and he had to stick me with a few needles for my shots! I ALWAYS follow the rules. I never chase cats or other animals. I love being a quiet shadow for my fosters as I get to know that people are good, and I am saf read more

 

Name: Lucky (LGD)
Hi, my name is Lucky! I am a Livestock Guardian Dog that has protected chickens and goats. I came into the rescue because my owners have sold their livestock and are moving into a smaller house. Unfortunately, I've never lived inside and they cannot take me or my mate, Panda, with them. I am a very sweet girl who enjoys being pet. I'm scared of being on the leash, but I stick to your side pretty well. I've recently been spayed and will be on a medical hold. More to come about my personality as my foster gets to know me. read more

 

Name: Olaf LGD
My name is Olaf and I am looking for a great partner to be in the pasture with me and the goats. I love kidding season when the babies play all over me. I am a very protective of my little charges. I would do best with another dog who would let me be in charge. Do you need a good guardian? Go get your application in. read more

Name: Polar Bear HFD
Polar Bear is now a hobby farm dog. He will melt your heart! He wandered up to a family farm outside of Ennis in 2015 and was quickly rehomed. Unfortunately his new family had a reverse in fortune and had to sell their livestock. We have found that Polar is a very friendly boy. He is great with goats, but he loves his people too. He would be happiest if he could be a family dog on your farm. He won't chase your livestock and he gets along great with other dogs. He is just a big loveable guy waiting for his new home read more

Discipline isn't about showing a dog who's boss; it's about taking responsibility for a living creature you have brought into your world.
