I was given the name Astro and I think it’s pretty cool name especially since PPR named me when they busted me out of being in the shelter for far too long and I was beginning to think I would not make it out. So here I am looking for a forever family. I am a two year old super chill, chunky pocket pittie who is a total cuddle bug and I sure love my afternoon naps. Don’t get that twisted though because I can run mean zoomies around the house just for fun. I am potty trained and I love walks with my foster mom. I am such a wiggle butt it’s hard for me to stay still but I am working hard on basic commands like sit and stay and I am doing pretty good. I sleep through the night in a crate and love playing with my fur foster brother and they say I am good with other fur dogs too. We are not sure about cats yet. I am about 42 lbs of pure love waiting for my forever home. I am the guy to give you lots of affection at the end of the day and I would never turn down a belly rub from you. So go to the top of the page and start that application process quick!
Look at my handsome face! That is what my foster mom tells me a lot – that I’m so handsome. My name is Colton and If you watch the Bachelor you will know I am named after the handsome bachelor. But I have to say I win everyone over that I meet. I love every human and I am just a gentle spirit just looking for my forever family. I am a super easy boy about 3 years old and I am fantastic in my crate, potty trained and I know basic commands. I am in search for my forever family and when I find you PPR will have that rose waiting for you so go to the top and fill out an app.
My foster mom says I am funny, clumsy and have a big personality. My name is Tiny Tim and I a young boy about 11/12 months old and although I don’t look like every other dog because I have a club foot and my other foot is somewhat deformed I can get around fine and I am a super cuddler. I just melt on my humans and I love to nuzzle my head under any arm or leg just to feel safe. I know some basic commands, but I’m working on others too. I am feeling better since I was super sick so I am just starting to play with the kids and fur sibling in my foster home. I am great with kids and I am good with my fur sibling but need to work on sharing and not wanting everything for myself. I am crate trained and right now I’m working on finishing up with housetraining. I still need a little help with learning to ask to go outside. But I sure am ready to begin my new life with you, and you know who you are because you’re going to fill out an app so you can meet me in person and we can begin our journey as a family soon.
If you watch Vanderpump Rules you will know I am named after a beautiful and unique person. That rolls me into my new name Stassi and my new savior who has given me a chance at life - PPR. Here I am looking for my home to call forever and always so here it goes since my name sake is right to the point. I am a two year old gorgeous, blondie who needs a family to treat me the way I need to be treated. Actually, between you and me I’m looking for a nice home to lay my head down and begin my new life as a sweet and gentle girl who needs affection and lots of love. I am housetrained but I do have the occasional accident but I am working on that. I go right in my crate when it’s time and my foster mom says I am the SWEETEST GIRL, that I melt into her lap and I give plenty of affectionate - includes many kisses and cuddles. I love to play with my foster pup who is energetic and loves to play too. I do need help with walking on a leash a little because I tend to get excited and pull a little but I am so eager to please with treats and I am so food motivated I will have this walking down right by your side in no time. My foster mom also said I have a funny and sweet personality and my eyes and ears are the most expressive she has ever seen. But because of being hit by a car, I lean a little but that adds to my unique personality and that doesn’t get me down! I adore stuffed toys, but they don't last long and that’s the fun part of toys! I can eat peanut butter 24/7 out of my Kong and I do like the snow and just enjoying life! My foster family has given me a chance to find my family that I know is out there just waiting so if you are them go up and fill out an app. I am waiting and listening for that call to send me home xoxo Stassi
I am a very young boy around 4 months old and I am a mix of Yorkie/Chihuahua all rolled into a small little bundle so I was named Anchovy. I ended up at the shelter not acting like a puppy and they thought I could not hear and I had a very scary time since my liver panel was not good so PPR didn’t want me sitting in the shelter so scared and sick so I found a foster home that is so awesome. My levels went up and I started acting like a puppy again and can hear a little better but still can’t hear 100% but I get around just fine. I do have limited vision so I may need a little help at first getting around.I share the foster home with another PPR pup, my big foster bro Gus. He is helping me build confidence when I meet new people or am unsure of new surroundings that is why another dog is absolutely necessary for my forever home. I am trying hard to get over being so unsure of things so I need someone who has patience and is understanding and can work with me to help me realize I can do so much more if I would only have confidence. I am asking for an adult only home to help me find my way in this world. Scroll to the top of the page and fill out an app and we can meet in person.
Buddy here and I am just enjoying life! I am super playful and a great guy. I’m 2 ½ years old and was adopted to a family and was so happy to be out of the scary shelter only to be brought right back there when my family said “they didn’t have time for me.” PPR and its crew told me not to worry because I will find my forever family who will appreciate the great boy I am. I am super treat motivated so I am rocking learning. My foster fur brother loves to play with me and I love every person I meet and I will curl up on the couch and be a couch potato too. I passed the cat test too. So I am an all-around nice guy. So the old saying “nice guys finish last” never has met me! Fill out an application at the top of this page pronto.
I’m honored to carry on the name Dylan McKay. If you were a fan of 90210 you will know I am as handsome and debonair as the character in the show. I found myself in the shelter very scared and super skinny (only 15 pounds) but after a short stay I was rescued by PPR and I found myself a nice, warm foster home. I am a young boy at 5 months and right now I am working on gaining some weight! My foster mom says I am a smart boy and a clumsy puppy all rolled into one. I already have potty training and crate training down and I am working on some other basic commands. I walk with my foster mom to get the small humans from school and she said I walk great on a leash. My foster home has other fur brothers and sisters and I really have fun running and playing outside with the dogs but the cat has me a little confused because when I sniff her she just smacks me. I guess that is just one thing I have to figure out on my own because I am just trying to be nice. I am looking for a home that has a family who I can give all my love and devotion to and where I feel safe and loved. I will need continued training since I am a young boy but the best part of that is we will develop a bond that will last a lifetime. The first step would be to go to the top of the page and fill out an application with my name on it and we can set up a meet and greet. I cannot wait too long so hurry up and start that app.
Calling all German Shepard peeps. I am part GS and just a little over a year old. I am a young active guy who is in need of some training and someone to work on my manners! My name is Hawk and PPR says “my white fur is incredibly handsome and those ears!” I am active so I think a family with a lot going on in their lives would be the best fit for both of us. My foster home has another dog and I love playing with him along with the little humans too. I am potty trained and crate trained and I am one smart boy so training will be a breeze! I am looking for a person or family that knows I need to stay busy so I am not bored and will make time to work with me. That is what us working breeds need! I will be loyal and love my forever family like no other because when we share a bond it will be forever. That’s the way I roll. I am waiting and wondering who my new family or person will be so scroll to the top and fill out an app.
Am I a young girl just under 2 and I am part English Bulldog and everyone at PPR says I have the most adorable face ever and gave me the cutest name - Molly! Just look how cute I am! The best part is I am just as sweet and gentle as can be and I am a snuggler. I get along with other dogs but prefer boys over girls and my foster mom says I am super smart because even though I have never gone potty in the house I have learned to let them know when I want to go out by ringing a bell! Everyone was so excited, even my foster fur brother who I adore. I am a great girl who is looking for a family who will love me forever because being dumped at the shelter was no fun. I did live with kids too, so if my forever family has kids that would be awesome. Thanks PPR for saving my life and next stop fill out an application. Go to the link at the top of the page.
You are looking at a giant teddy bear who loves everyone! My name is Snuffleufugus but you can call me Gus. I am AMAZING, well that is what my foster mom says about me. I am a dream boy around two years old. I was bounced around a couple of shelters and wasn’t feeling great because I had a severe case of entropion which is where my eye lashes scratched the surface of my eyes but a few surgeries corrected it and I’m on my way to feeling spectacular. Now I just need someone to find me irresistible so we can meet because my forever home is out there and I am patiently waiting for that day where I can curl up at night and know I am home forever. A few more great qualities about myself are, I am super chill, potty trained and when I get a command to sit and stay I am so good at it. I’m still learning new things every day and humans and other dogs are my favorite things of all time. The drill to meet me in person would be to go to the top and start filling out the application with my name on it.
Bette Davis sang her song and her lyrics “just to please you, she’s got Bette Davis eyes” that is the reason I have her beautiful name. One look from the founder of PPR into my sad but loving eyes and I knew my life was going to be saved that day. I arrived at the shelter cold, hungry, afraid and so very skinny and after a five-day hospital stay I left to stay with my foster family. Fast forward six weeks and look at me now – a new girl ready for her new life. I am around 2 years old and love everyone that wants to meet me. Since my past is unknown, I am not sure about other dogs or cats so I would say I want to be the only dog but that could change. Great thing is I am potty and crate trained and could snuggle forever with my foster family. I took my first walk with the PPR pack (dogs included) last weekend and did remarkably well on a leash. My foster mom is giving me basic commands and she said I am a fast learner because I love any treat she gives me. I can sit and stay, working on waiting for my food bowl and trying “down” which is a work in progress but every day is a new day so I am up for the challenge. My heart is open to a new forever family and if you want to see my love and devotion first hand you need to go to the top of the page and fill out an app.
On MLK Day I found myself surrendered to the shelter due to landlord issues but I was lucky because I didn’t have to wait too long to be sprung from that scary place. The PPR pack welcomed me and bestowed on me the great name of Martin but my foster mom calls me Marty. I am a shih tzu/long haired chi mix and I am a little guy around 9 lbs and I am 5 years old. I am a special guy who is sensitive and delicate and when I am scared I need to act like a tough guy but with the right family who is willing to give me time and patience I know I will feel comfortable and move on from being so scared and reacting so fearful at times. My foster mom said I really am a bundle of love once I feel comfortable and I was in a home with other dogs and the pack life was a bit overwhelming but I think with the right fur sibling I can make it work. I would do best in a home with no kids because I need a slow-paced life without too much commotion. But I promise once I trust you, I will give you nothing but love and devotion. If you think I would be the right fit for you or your family I would love to meet you, all you need to do is go to the top and fill out an application. I think the Superhero cape will be my good luck charm.
I am the mom of the Great Eight and since they have found their forever homes I am looking for mine. I was pregnant in the south side intake only shelter with my babes when I was rescued and I was the best mom ever. My name is Shelby and I am about 3 years old and sweet as can be. I love my foster home and the kids there adore me. I get along with the dog siblings and I'm ok with the cat who is pretty dog savvy. I am housetrained and know basic commands. If you are looking for a mama who would be the best companion and forever love of your life I am your gal. You need to start by going to the top and filling out an application.
Ziggy is my name and I think it is a perfect fit for my goofy personality. I am a boy about a year old and I have lived in a home with kids as young as 12 weeks to a big kid about 16. I was given up because the kids had allergies. I love to cuddle and I don’t know my own size because I love human laps to sit on. I am gentle and I walk pretty good on a leash but I still need training after all I am just a big ole’ puppy. I am house trained and I am learning from my foster sibling to ring a bell to go outside. That is a lot of fun! I do go in my crate to sleep and chill out and I even open the door to go in when there is a treat to be had. I love my peanut butter and really any and all treats so my foster mom says that makes me food motivated so I am going to be easy to train. She said I amaze her when I cuddle up on the couch, I can make myself super small to fit nice and snug next to her. I am working on basic commands and since I adore my foster fur sibling and playing with her is so much fun, I think it would be great to have a house with another fur sibling so we can have double the fun. You can go to the top and fill out an application so we can make sure we meet superfast.
I am a sweet boy about five months old looking for my happily ever after. My name is Stitch after the Disney character. My foster mom says I am a super sweet boy who loves to play but I am also an expert snuggler, especially in my foster mom’s lap. I have a ton of confidence being around my foster brother and sister (both furry and human). I am a quick learner and since I love food and any kind of treat I am going to rock basic training. I know sit already –in just a few short weeks. Just keep those treats coming and I’ll be the best student around. For being such a little guy I am in the process of working on my potty training and doing pretty good. I can make it the entire night keeping my crate nice and clean. Speaking of, I am also crate trained. Since I live with a little human boy now I am hoping my new home has a ton of love because that is exactly what I am looking for and I’ll give just as much back. Go to the top and fill out an app for me and we will be on our way to our happily ever after just like in some of the Disney movies.
If you know Vanderpump Rules then you know where my name came from. Hi, I am Tom Tom. I am a handsome 2 year old hunk who adores giving kisses and I love all humans. I have the best personality and to name a few of my accomplishments, I am great in a crate, obedience trained and potty-trained and I love walking next to my person on a leash. I never pull ahead I am always right by their side. My foster family said I am the best dog ever! I currently share a foster house with two resident dogs and we are the best buddies. I have one request for my forever family and that is to have another dog to be my buddy and companion. Rush to fill out an app because I am going to find my forever family lightning fast.
YOU NEED TO MEET ME IN PERSON. I am the most special girl and every human that meets me cannot believe I haven’t found my forever home yet. I think it’s because my personality far out weighs any photos. I must admit I’m so much more than a pretty face and since I am a little petite pittie I can fit perfectly on any lap and I do. I love to snuggle.
My beautiful name is Giada and I’m a super good girl. My foster mom and grandparents say I’m the best girl ever. I am full grown so you don’t have to worry about anything puppy! I still have energy to burn and I love a good romp in the yard with my foster brother who I adore. Once I got to know him he is my best buddy and we run in the yard and chase each other and play together every day. I also adore any toy ever made and I even enjoy carrying around a toy just for the fun of it. I also adore all humans and I catch a snuggle anytime I can but to watch out the window at my usual spot and just gaze outside at the neighborhood is pretty cool too. I love riding shotgun and I feel so comfortable in my crate I sometimes just go in there to snooze. I love to make my foster parents happy and I sure aim to please. I really love my foster family but I’m still looking for my forever family and I know you are out there. I need a family who is willing to take in a snuggle bunny for life and someone who loves a constant companion to pal around with who has a nice lap I could use as a big pillow. When you meet me you will know exactly why my foster family adores me. To schedule our first meet and greet go to the top of the page and the link will take you to an application to fill out so we can begin our adventures together.
HELLO! I'm Burrito. I'm a 5 year old Chihuahua. Humans tell me I'm a burrito of love! Apparently I'm sweet with a side of sass. You know how us chis do!
I'm dog friendly, both big and small I love them all! You can often find me rough housing with one of the big dogs and snuggling after, or being the go-to small dog tester for the rescue. Dogs that used to be scared of other dogs, such as Queenie, were drawn to me right away. What can I say, I’m a likable guy! *I actually would prefer to have a canine companion or two in my forever home.
I enjoy a nice long wall, and yes I bark at the cars to tell them how tough I am! Don’t mess with the best. I love a good play sesh but I'll never turn down a nap with some snuggles! I am the first one to snuggle up to my foster mom in bed- yes, I do expect to sleep in bed with you! I'm very tree motivated, a total character, and and also potty + crate trained. You should see how often I get my foster human smiling. What more could you ask for?
If you think I'm be a good addition to your family, please apply!
Look at us! We have a sad story how we became part of the PPR pack but we are hopeful that we will find our forever home soon. Our human mom attempted to leave this earth and take us with her. All of us survived but we unfortunately were surrendered to the shelter because she could no longer take care of us. We are super bonded and my buddy Rudy (the smaller guy) who is 4 years old is my best buddy and protector. I am Beenie and I am 11 years old. I cannot stand on my back legs because of severe muscle atrophy but I get around just fine in the house. I was fitted for a cart and I use that to go outside and it works great. We are both potty trained and we do not need to be crated. I am more friendly than Rudy but I think that is because he knows he is my protector. But he warms up just fine once he gets to know you. We lived in a foster home with another little and a chill Pittie and it worked out great. But we prefer to meet any dogs slowly and cats we just bark at. We have not been around kids so I think that means we would prefer an adult only house. Since we were saved by PPR we have both lost weight since I must admit we were a bit overweight. We love playing in the yard and wrestling together. We are just a great team so we need to stay together and we are hoping our new home will take us in and we can begin our new chapter of our lives starting right when you start the application for us Chi boys.
HAPPILY EVER AFTER......
RIP SWEET GIRL- RACHEL YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN
I am Stan the man. I am a Yorkshire Terrier about 2ish years old. I love cuddling up with my favorite person, long leisurely walks, exploring my new neighborhood, playing with toys, sneaking cuddles with his foster siblings and cheese of all shapes and sizes. I am housetrained, a complete gentleman on a leash and a great car ride buddy. My wish for my forever home is that I have a quiet, relaxed home and my forever person or persons will be patient in handling me and will help me to transition to my new home slowly. Once I get to know you and feel comfortable, I will be forever devoted and will follow you around everywhere! I think I would do best in a home with no children but my one requirement would be that my forever home must have canine fur sibling(s). My foster family now has two medium size pups and they are my buddies, we just love hanging out together. If you are wondering, I am great with cats too. If you think you have the love and patience to bring me into your home as your own little guy, please go to the top and fill out an application for Stanley.
