Suede is approximately 2 years old. He is a happy-go-lucky shepherd mix most likely mixed with Labrador or Hound. He was picked up as a stray in West Virginia and transported to our rescue to find a forever home. Suede is very outgoing, loves to play and keep up with the youngsters. He will be moving to a foster home soon and when we learn more about him we will update his profile. Based on his personality we think he’d make a great family pet.

Miley and Rush were taken in via the Lakewood Animal Shelter. Their owner passed away and they were taken to the shelter when the extended family could not figure out a way to keep the dogs. Ideally, we’d love to place the pair together but we are open to separating them if that is what ends up being best for the dogs.

FOSTER CARE REPORT

Our Man Rush….Lets start with the ride home in a car with children and adults. He did great! He stood the whole ride to Geauga County and whined only a couple of times. When we stopped at my daughters house he spotted the 3 cats outside and stepped up on the back of the front seat to check them out and stared them down and whined a bit. When we reached my house he went  potty outside came in and enjoyed everyone in the house. He drank some water and ate very little food, so I feed him out of my hand and got him to eat 1 cup a little at a time.
RushSHM_couchAfter everyone went home it was time for bed he hopped on my bed and slept all night never got up once. In the morning we went out side he went potty and came back in he laid on the couch and the floor and napped off and on. I had a visitor stop by so I put him on the leash and took him for a walk around the property and he found some leaves and trees on the side of the yard and did his business. My neighbor walked his small dog up to meet Rush and that also went well, no hair stood up on his back and they just did the doggie sniff…He is very friendly with everyone he has met and very laid back.
He has not barked at all but when I left him in the house and I went to the garage for a while I heard him howling quit a bit..lol….. it was funny. He has played a little with a few toys and rolled on his back and let us rub his tummy. He is just very tired and I am giving him a much quite and rest as he wants. So I am enjoying him very much he is a great dog he is house broken as far as I can tell no accidents yet, but I take him out often and I will leave him home alone tomorrow and then we will see. I am giving him the run of the house. No crate we shall see how that goes.

He walks very nicely on a leash. Kid and people friendly, knows sit , stay and come by his name. He is a good boy. He is getting what he needs right now at my house. It is my pleasure to have him here.

MileySHM_foster2Miley and Rush were taken in via the Lakewood Animal Shelter. Their owner passed away and they were taken to the shelter when the extended family could not figure out a way to keep the dogs. They had some adjustment time getting used to the dogs at daycare and stayed at The Mutt Hutt for about two weeks before we secured two (different) foster homes for them. They have both adjusted well to their new tempoary living environments and we are confident the pair does not need to live together. If they were adopted together there is a discount for adopting the pair.

FOSTER CARE REPORT

MileySHM_toyWhen spending time with Miley, you’d never think she’s 9 years old.  She is so playful, loving, and energetic; her tail is always wagging.  She loves to carry toys around and you can see the conflict on her face when we go out for walks about whether she’d rather go out or keep holding her toy.  She’s filled with energy when we’re walking and is working on not tugging as much, but luckily she’s not a huge dog (45 lbs).  She’s only had pleasant interactions with other dogs and doesn’t seem to have interest in cats or squirrels; I’ve only even heard her bark once, and I’m not sure what that was at.  She’s met some kids and isn’t phased by them– as long as they’re ok with kisses.  With her all energy, please be sure to keep her on a leash (unless you have a fenced in yard) — she gets so about potentially going she’s bolted out the door too soon and run down the street, but then comes right back like nothing has happened.  
While she has plenty of energy outside, inside Miley is content to just relax and cuddle up on the couch or floor, or run after her toys if you throw them.  She has so much love to share and is so fun to chill with.  We used her crate the first few days to test it out, and we’d wake up in the morning to her crying, so we haven’t used the crate and haven’t heard her crying in the AM.  She’s also done some crying when we leave (or doesn’t know I’m still around) but it doesn’t last too long.  We’ve just been leaving her out of the crate now and she roams the house fine.  She’s home for 8 hours a day alone and hasn’t ripped anything up except her toys, and hasn’t had any accidents inside (knock on wood).  
MileySHM_foster
Miley is an awesome gal who is sometimes a little shy at first, but will soon be cuddling right up on you.  Give her a shot!

Octavius

ADOPTED! January 19, 2017

tavishm_downwarddog

Arrival Date: 12/23/2016
Breed: Doberman Pinscher
Gender: Male
Age: 2 years
Weight: 75#
Personality: Weary, Anxious, Loving
Fully Vaccinated:  Yes
Microchipped: Yes
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
In foster Home: Yes
Dog Social: Needs more confidence
Crate Trained: Not recommended
House Trained: Yes
Kid-Friendly: Not Recommended
Cat-Friendly Cat Curious
Origin: Owner Surrender
Adoption Fee: $250

nokidsOctavius or Tavi for short is a young, male Doberman Pinscher. He was a product of some neglect and misguidance by his former owners. They downsized into a smaller home and couldn’t keep him inside so they opted to contain him in a crate on an uncovered porch. He picked up some serious crate anxiety as a result of being crated for long hours and having little contact with his family. The family who surrendered him acquired him when he was a year old and we do not know his history prior to that. Tavi has been around older children but due to his hesitation and fear (which we don’t want anyone to mistake as aggression) we recommend he moves in with a someone who does not have little kids at this time. He is a bit shy of men and may have had a prior negative experience trusting men as he retreats and barks. In dog language he’s telling us that he’s unsure so he will need some positive reinforcement, patience and guidance.

octaviousshm_bodyTavi is loyal as they come and loves to snuggle on the couch. He has a favorite teddy bear his first Ohio foster mom gave him and he loves having it around. He was transported to us just before Christmas and spent a couple days decompressing in an emergency foster home and then moved into our facility after the holidays. He has slowly (but not surly) met some other dogs and we will continue to introduce him to dogs while he’s in our care. We do not think he has had much experience around other dogs so he can get overwhelmed a bit with large groups but has shown a more calm demeanor around small groups of dogs. He really likes the little dogs.

tavishm_couchTavi has been introduced to one cat and did show some curiosity but not aggression. He takes commands well. If he is placed in a cat home we would recommend that cat have claws and be dog-savvy to tech Tavi the way. He will also need constant observation with cat introductions for a period of time until all animals in the home are comfortable with one another. Tavi has moved into a foster home and is now living with with just one gentleman at this time. His foster dad is slowly working on his ability to be crated and feel comfortable (he did damage a crate pan when left alone his first day). Slowly but surely we believe Tavi will come around and make an excellent dog for someone who is looking for a loyal companion who wants to please.

Dakota

dakotashm

Arrival Date: 12/16/16
Breed: American Eskimo
Gender: Female
Age: DOB: 8/29/2013
Weight: 20-25#
Personality: Anxious, Shy, Fearful
Fully Vaccinated:  Yes
Microchipped: Yes
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
In foster Home: Yes

House Trained: Yes

nokidsDakota is a pure bred American Eskimo. She was born in August 2013 and purchased by a family who raised her with their children. As she matured she was getting toy possessive and posed a risk to the kids so they surrendered her rather than euthanizing her (which was the plan until we intervened). Dakota has clearly been loved but has not been socialized properly from a young age. She has had little exposure to dogs so we are working through that at daycare and in a foster home. Dakota is very comfortable in a crate and tends to den in her crate to feel safe. She will require an owner who is patient and willing to work through her issues, accept her for who she is and not overwhelm her.
Dakota is up to date on shots, spayed and microchipped. We are screening applications and recommend a home without young children at this time.

FOSTER CARE REPORT

dakotashm_bodyAlthough it’s only been a few days, here’s what I can tell you about Dakota: Dakota is an interesting dog, full of contradictions. She is usually quiet, although she will start barking occasionally for no apparent reason. She is house-trained, no accidents so far. She’s been sleeping quietly in the crate at night. She can be affectionate and sweet but is also often aloof and stand-offish. She can be ornery and very stubborn and won’t listen to even simple commands like “come” or “want to go out?” or “lay down”. A good thing is that even when I make her do something she doesn’t want to do, she hasn’t nipped or snapped once.

dakotashm_body2I started keeping a leash on her in the house so that I can get to her without having to chase her around. Her issues with Ric (mostly) and Rosey are based in jealousy. She likes to be “the queen” and can really over-react if she thinks they are getting too much attention. She will ignore them for hours and then have a fit out of the blue. She doesn’t know how to play without getting mad so she needs more socialization.  The leash is also helping me to control that situation better. She is not particularly treat-motivated so that doesn’t work. Rosey and Ric usually spend several hours every day keeping my dad company.

Dakota acts differently when she’s here by herself–calmer and more responsive. She has pretty much stopped the endless pacing and pillow humping. I guess at this point I would say she should be in a home where she is the “only child” and with adults who have experience with pure-bred diva dogs.

Baxter

ADOPTED! January 4, 2017

baxtershm

Arrival Date: 11/30/2016
Breed: Terrier Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 1 year
Weight: 20-25#
Personality: Happy-Go-Lucky, Energetic
Fully Vaccinated:  Yes
Microchipped: Yes
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
In foster Home: Yes
Dog Social: Yes
Crate Trained: No
House Trained: 95%
Kid-Friendly: Yes – No babies, older kids OK (6+)
Cat-Friendly Unknown
Origin: Lakewood Animal Control Transfer
Adoption Fee: $200

Baxter is a young, scruffy, terrier mix. He was found running the streets of Lakewood and traced back to his owner who had admittedly tied him to a fence post for someone she had arranged to pick him up after posting him as a free dog on Craiglist. The person never came to get him and he must have chewed himself off the pole and ran. Luckily he was safely contained at the shelter and then once they confirmed the owner did not want him he was transferred to us. We vaccinated him and had him neutered.

When he arrived he was very shy at first but after a day of meeting new friends he warmed right up and has been a delight. He moved to a foster home for about three weeks and is now ready to find a forever home. Baxter is up to date on shots, spayed and microchipped.

FOSTER CARE REPORT

Baxter is a sweet, smart, energetic dog who is eager to learn. He knows sit, is working on down, and can give a “high five”. He is always really coming along nicely on “wait” (hand held up in “stop position” while he is in a sit.) He would be fantastic at agility once he has a solid grasp of all his basic obedience commands. Baxter loves kids and other dogs although we had one leash interaction with a dog across the street and I couldn’t tell exactly what the deal was. Even though he doesn’t weigh that much, Baxter is super strong on the leash and was pulling VERY hard to get to the other dog (we’ll never know his exact motives although they appeared positive). He LOVES, loves, loves the snow. Took him to an enclosed outdoor soccer field last Sunday and he played for almost an hour, fetching tennis balls, and racing around. If I hadn’t gotten too cold, he probably would have been happy to stay another hour.

baxtershm_kidBaxter LOVES kids, seems to love other dogs. Cat curious – perhaps TOO curious (based on two experiences at my parents’ house – they have a senior cat who is fairly mean.)

Leash walking: He is somewhat of a disaster on a leash, although he’s doing a lot better. Don’t think he’d been exposed to walks much before because he wouldn’t pee or poop while on a walk, only to come home and sit by the back door and THEN go to the bathroom outside. I put him on a harness and would not recommend walking him with other dogs b/c he thinks it’s playtime and starts jumping and doing all the play behaviors while on the walk. Hard to get him to stay focused and keep walking.

Housebreaking: He is about 95% of the way there. Will sit at the door to let you know he wants to go out. Only had two accidents and both were while I was gone and he had busted out of his crate, so it might have been anxiety.

Baxter eats his dog food sparingly. I put the bowl down, he eats about a fourth of it, then walks away. He’ll come back to his eating area and sit down, and I’ll put the bowl down again, and he’ll eat a little more. Even though he’s supposed to eat one cup, twice a day, I think he’s only actually eaten ALL of both servings two days that I’ve had him here. Treats, however, are another story. He understands sit, down and stay for a treat. He’s also working on catching the treat which he can manage about 50% of the time.

baxtershm_floorI truly cannot say enough good things about him. He’s just a positive, energetic, light-hearted dog (not to anthropomorphize too much) who really should NOT be left home alone all day, unless it’s with a younger dog who also needs a playmate or unless he can go to doggy day care several times a week. OR, if he gets lots of long walks and lots of play time in the mornings and evenings and then can sleep during the day he would be okay- but this is not the dog for a couch potato family.

I know I’m only his foster mom, but I would love to see him flourish with the right family. I would love to keep him, but at almost five years old, both of my dogs are not in a place where they can tolerate his energy. He will give so much joy to the right home. I can’t wait to see how well he does in the right environment. He’s just a doll.

Nova

Origin: Owner Surrender

Nova is a typical Doberman who is loyal through and through. Her former owners raised her around kids and a cat and did an exceptional job. They fond themselves in a tough situation and had to find her a new due to restrictions on their living situation. We intervened and offered to help find her the best home she could transition into. It was a tearful good bye and never easy for a loving family to care for a dog so much and find themselves unable to provide her with what she needs. Nova is an excellent car companion and stayed in her bed for the two hour journey from Columbus to Cleveland. She was a little overwhelmed meeting her new friends at The Mutt Hutt but had no big issues. We allowed her to decompress for a few days with her bed and toys that she was familiar with and then secured and moved her into a foster home.

Nova is up to date on shots, spayed and microchipped.

FOSTER CARE REPORT

novashm_face_webNova has settled in nicely and made herself at home. She is eating and drinking more regularly now and we have had no house accidents. (I did discover a small kid’s sock in her poop on the second day we had her, but she’s not eaten any of ours, as far as I can tell. Lol!) She has also adopted the role of our guardian, barking at the door bell, patrolling our fence line when she’s out, hackles up when she sees the neighbors come and go.

She is no fan of the cold and is quite happy to subject herself to the coat and booties that we put her in before walks. I couldn’t figure out the harness that came along with her and have been using mine. The fit is not great for her, but it keeps her from pulling us along. We have yet to have a calm, steady walk, even with the harness. She is either stopped –sniffing the trees, bushes, etc. around her– or cantering off to the next new smell. Hard to work with her on this while it’s so cold and icy. She is so good with other commands though, I’m sure she’ll be a quick study if her new family wants her leash-trained. She arrived knowing Sit, Down, and Paw. Now we are working on ‘off’ (she’s decided the couch is more comfortable than her beds) and ‘drop it’.

Clearly, she is a pretty young dog. She is a vigorous chewer, but, thankfully, seems to fully understand that her gnawing needs to be restricted to her own stuff. That blankets she has is her favorite thing to just chomp away on. She loves to play fetch and tug. She’d rather play tug than we would — she’s quite strong and gets very excited with the ‘competition’ — and she is not one to be ignored. She presents her toys, rather insistently, over our newspaper, laptop, cellphones, etc.


Mostly though, she is super affectionate. She loves to be loved, scratched, petted, snuggled, and played with. Sweet, sweet girl!

Martin was found wandering the cold streets of Cleveland in a fairly desolate neighborhood. He was filthy and seemingly out on the streets for awhile. A Good Samaritan picked him up and got him scanned for a chip but there was no identification found. He was reported to the local shelters as a found dog and held for three days and then we agreed to take him (and will continue to seek out an owner if we can). Martin is a young Labrador Mix and has a very typical Labrador personality. He is great with other dogs, he’s very energetic and loves to play. He is a big boy and expected to keep growing. Martin will be moving to a foster home so we can get to know him better for placing him.

Martin is up to date on shots, spayed and microchipped.

MooMoo_yawnMoo Moo (otherwise known as Sasha) is the victim of home foreclosure. Her devastated family had no choice but to surrender her so she could find a home to live in. She was raised with the same family since she was 8 weeks old. She is a mix of terrier, Shar Pei and maybe bull dog (she’s got an outstanding under bite). She’s grown up around older children and is a very loyal and affectionate girl. She loves to snuggle in bed and be by her human companions. A few weeks prior to the family losing their home they also had to put their older dog to sleep so Moo Moo has been through a lot. She does need to learn some basic commands.

Moo Moo is up to date on shots, spayed and microchipped.

FOSTER CARE REPORT

MooMOo_chairMooMoo/Sasha is a wonderful dog. She is smart, affectionate, playful, and fun. She and my dogs have a great time entertaining each other. She listens pretty well and is very treat motivated. She can be a bit grabby so she has to be reminded to be gentle and nice when taking a treat. We are working on basic commands but haven’t gotten too far yet.  She’s usually pretty calm and low key. She likes to relax next to me in the recliner or sometimes claims her own chair. She sleeps through the night; if she wants to go out, which is rare, she stands on me to wake me up–not fun!!
Moo Moo needs leash training but is doing better – she is a little reactive meeting other dogs on a leash but her reaction is not to be assumed as aggression. She would probably do best in a household with a male dog if her adopter was looking to pair her up or be a solo dog and work on her communication skills on a leash. 
MooMoo_dogs
She’s good in the car and loves going for rides. Because she always wants to be with her human, she will rush to the door to go with you, whether you want her to or not. We are working on that too. She is now fully crate trained and does not seem to mind being left in a crate. If I’m gone longer, into the crate she goes. She really does not like to be home alone and gets inquisitive about things that she shouldn’t.
MooMoo would love to be able to run around and play in a fenced yard with a canine companion of similar size and temperament. She would be great with adults or in a family with older kids.
All in all, an awesome Secondhand Mutt!

Arrival Date: 11/28/2016
Breed: Terrier Mix
Gender:  Male
Age: 6 months
Weight: 35#
Personality: Happy-Go-Lucky
Fully Vaccinated:  Yes
Microchipped: Yes
Spayed/Neutered: Scheduled
In foster Home: Yes
Dog Social: Yes
Crate Trained:  Yes
House Trained: Yes
Kid-Friendly: Yes – little ones A-OK!
Cat-Friendly Unknown
Origin: Stray

 

Kris Kringle is a 6 month old pitbull terrier mix. He was picked up stray with an injury and taken to a local vet clinic. He was without a microchip, collar or any identification and suspected as being dumped. He is now in good paws with us and we will take care of him until he finds a forever family to take care of him. Kringle does have some soreness in his leg and some road rash on his face and leg but the wounds are healing. He moved into a foster home with a staff member of The Mutt Hutt and met the two family dogs and baby and is doing great.

Kringle is a laid back, easy going, happy go lucky dog. He would make an excellent family dog and his awesome personality is going to make it difficult for us to choose a home for him because we anticipate he will be Mr. Popularity. Kringle is up to date on shots, microchipped and will be neutered prior to his adoption.

He recently moved into a foster home and we will update his profile with more information soon.
