(Read More)in the park, on the street, literally anywhere), #cuddles by the fireplace (or under the covers, on the couch, anywhere really), and sharing delicious treats under the sun (or by moonlight, in the dark, really the treats are all that matter)? Then have I got a boy for you. Meet Kane! The first thing that will likely spring to mind when you see Kane is 'hubba hubba!' But don't be embarrassed by that, no. That's normal. With his perfect #brindled coat, utterly kissable gorilla nose, and delightfully #delicious and batty ears, Kane is a sight for sore eyes (or really any eyes at all). At just 1.5 years-old our lovable Lothario is also quite #young and expectedly full of energy and #life. He #greets me with a joyous 'woof!' in his kennel and, immediately won over by his overflowing #charms, I invite him on one of those walks. Kane pulls a bit on leash and of course with a face like that and #personality to spare, draws attention from all who pass him. '#Handsome boy!' 'Cuuuute!' 'Awww.' But don't let jealousy overcome you, no, no! For the moment you and Kane retire to a pen he only has eyes for you. Kane sits easily for his treats, poses effortlessly for photos, and happily chomps on a blue squeaky #toy, his chosen favorite of the bunch. Whether you've been looking for #love in all the wrong places or haven't been looking at all, a summer of love is waiting for you. You just need step out the door to find it. .

I am a #spayed female tan and black #staffordshire mix. The shelter thinks I am about 2 YEARS old. I came in the shelter as a #STRAY. I am on the kill list due to KENNEL COUGH, which is a HIGHLY treatable dog #cold. . A volunteer writes: My impression of Sheeva in the first few minutes that I met her and the last few that I spent time with ... (Read More)her are drastically different. And we can thank a #ball for that! Let me explain. When I first took Sheeva out, she reminded me of a nervous little #fox that had just been caught in the hen house. She literally looks like a fox, with her #sleek body, caramel coat and tail that looks like it was dipped in black ink. She was eager to come out and relieve herself, but a bit hand shy. The cuts on the top of her head and some eye inflammation could be an indicator to what happened to her prior to her arrival and why she may be so anxious. However, once I showed her a ball, a totally different Sheeva emerged. In a matter of minutes she was bounding after it, quick to retrieve it over and over again. When she tired of the game, she #cuddled up on the bench with me, ball in her mouth, #begging for #belly #rubs and #attention. You can imagine it was no surprise that when I looked up the name 'Sheeva' it means #charming-and that's exactly what she is! .

She is super #wiggly, cherishes #company, and an absolute ham for #attention. She #greets everyone we encounter in the hallway with #hugs and endless amounts of charm!! She is incredibly loving and will make herself at home in the nearest #lap, frequently #kisses the hands on the other end of her leash, and gives gentle little love #nibbles. Plus, she has the #cutest grill around (think Brigitte Bardot meets bunny rabbit) and makes the most #endearing little contented piggy grumbling noises.

    Poor Hazel. She is a story we see too often in the rescue business. Hazel is a 2 year old terrier mix. Hazel was abandoned with her puppy Hudson in the area. Hudson was adopted, as puppies are quickly, and poor perfect momma Hazel remains at the shelter. Hazel is loving and affectionate when she becomes comfortable. When she first came to the shelter she was scared and shy but, with time Hazel has opened up and loves to give kisses and snuggle. Hazel would do well in a family as an only pet with older children, teens and up. Do you see it in your heart to give Hazel a happy life like her pup Hudson, she's waiting.

    Check out those ears! Charlotte is too cute with those perky ears that stand straight up when she is paying attention. Charlotte is a 2 year old terrier. This beautiful gray girl was picked up as a stray. Charlotte's perky ears match her perky personality, she is an active girl and would love a home where she could exercise in her yard, go for walks and hikes. Charlotte is currently learning her basic commands and we believe she should be an only pet. Charlotte needs some continued training but, she is picking up quickly and when she has learned a bit more will be the perfect pet for an active family with older children.

    Meet Bubba. Bubba is 8 months old and spent most of his puppyhood tied up in an apartment. We saved him off of Craig's List without hesitation or else he likely would have ended up in a fighting ring. Bubba is sweet, loving,a bit of a goof ball and loves everyone he meets. He came to us like a bull in a china shop but with training he now has a nice on/off switch. He enjoys playing ball, tug and running around. He is a high energy dog who needs an owner who understands the importance of being a good leader and providing structure, rules, and boundaries. His ideal family will also be active and able to give him both mental and physical ... (Read More)stimulation. We have been working on his social skills around dogs and he is doing well over here however he is best suited as an only dog at this time. With continued work and socialization he would be able to live with another dog. He is housebroken, crate trained, up to date on shots, and neutered. Bubba is fully trained in off leash obedience and his new owners will be required to take handling lessons from us so that they can maintain all the hard work he has done since arriving.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Mhysa is an incredible dog that has lived a difficult life. When we met her she was a guard dog for a drug house, and her owner no longer had any use for her because he was selling the property. He planned to dispose of her either by cutting her free or worse so we stepped in to get her to safety. You can read more details about her rescue story here: https://www.waywardranch.org/mhysa-the-usd1000-dog When we got Mhysa what we expected was a dog that would be far too aggressive to be rehomed, because that is how her owner described her, but we were hesitantly hopeful that we could help her. We were shocked when after only one day with us ... (Read More)Mhysa seemed like a dog that had absolutely no problems. She loved us, walked calmly past other dogs, and was incredibly smart! We were even more shocked to learn this sweet girl was very young, and is only about one year old! Mhysa is understandably nervous around new people due to her past, but she has gone through a great deal of training and is thriving. It now takes her just a few minutes to be comfortable with a new person, as long as they go slow with her. Once she bonds and opens up you'll be able to see how goofy this girl is! Her favorite things are belly rubs, squeaky bee toys, and meatball dog treats! She loves going for car rides and is completely housebroken. She walks well on leash and loves to go for walks. In public places like pet stores she is still nervous and can get shut down, but in the woods she is truly in her element and would make a fantastic hiking partner! Mhysa can't wait to have a home, for the first time in her life. Please give her a chance to wiggle into your heart! We ask that all families interested in her commit to meeting her several times, both to form a bond with her and to learn the training she knows to help her be the best dog she can be in her new home and life!

Champ loves car rides, going for walks and loves being with people. He is high energy. He came to us when he was about 1 year. Originally found as a puppy he lived with a young girl who was about 19 and kept him crated most of the time. Not neutered or vaccinated, Champ was a handful. However considering he was crated out of convenience Champ was a product of his environment. Champ needs someone who is committed to training but someone who is an alpha. Champ was fortunate ...

The family that recently adopted him spent time with him at the shelter and I had my doubts, but they were insistent. Champ has so much to offer the right person and he is a very, very smart dog. He knows who is committed and who isn't. If you are looking for a sweet boy, with a goofy personality who would love walks (hikes,) long car rides Champ is a great dog, BUT he needs to know his adopter will make the time commitment. If you are interested in CHAMP, please go to www.petestablished.com and fill out our online application. If you have any questions please email at goshenhumanesociety@gmail.com. (Less)

    Emmy is a 5 year old female pit bull mix who was surrendered to the shelter due to landlord issues. Emmy needs to be an only pet in the house, and although she is not the best around another animals she does very well with people so she would be good in a home with kids about 10 and older. Emmy is a very strong girl who knows some obedience but will need continued training. She really enjoys going for walks and is house broken.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Dallas is a 1 1/2 year old male pit bull mix who was surrendered to the shelter because his owner could no longer keep him. Dallas is dog selective and its unknown how he does with cats at this time. He can have spurts of energy so thats why he'll need to be in a home with kids 10 and older. Dallas will also need more obedience training going forward. For all of his energy though,he's a very docile young man....

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-08-00384Mason (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Mason is a 2 year old male pit bull mix who was surrendered to the shelter due to personal problems in his family. Mason is a strong boy so he will need someone who can handle all that muscle. He is dog selective but we believe he does get along with female's. He has not been tested with cats at this time. He truly is a very friendly and happy big boy so we feel he would do well in a family with kids over 10, but again they will need to be able to handle this powerful boy.

Animal ID: 35952Hercules (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Just look at that gorgeous face!!!!! Hercules is a big boy who has found himself in need of a new home. He is only a year old and is really a puppy in a big boy suit! He is a little bit shy at first but warms up quickly. He seems to like children very much and his current owner has children with whom he plays. He walks well on a leash, even on a crowded NYC street, sniffing strangers as they walk by. He would do best with submissive dogs and he is a little dominant. He would benefit from a strong pack leader who can give him structure and boundaries that a young dog needs. If you'd like to foster or adopt Hercules, please apply at ...

    Meet Charlie Charlie is a 50 lb, 3 year old pit bull mix with a heart of gold immediately seeking a forever home! Charlie has been through so much to get to where he is today, a loving, affectionate dog desperately looking for a family to love him. Charlie is considered to be 'special needs' because of the limp that he has from being hit by a car over a year ago when he was a stray . . . from there he was found by a good samaritan, brought to vets office and ultimately landed in a large municipal shelter. That's where we found him and began the process of rehabilitating him. We enrolled him in a training program to help build strength ... (Read More)in his leg - he has been doing remarkably well and although he will always walk with a limp, Charlie is active and happy, and enjoys walking. Charlie is also a survivor of heartworm disease which has been treated and he is now totally healthy! 50 lb Charlie is a lovebug and it doesn't take him long to love you, roll over for belly rubs and give lots and lots of kisses!!! He loves his toys and while he gets along with dogs, he would prefer to be your one and only pet. Charlie is house-trained, knows 'sit' and 'place' and is working really hard to learn 'down' and 'stay'. He would be best in a home with kids 13+. He really is a special dog, he is the mushiest dog we have in our rescue group, he just loves to love and LOVES ALL PEOPLE. He has a heart of gold.
