  • Details: Hey everyone. My name is Hugh, but my friends call me Mr.Handsome. My life has been a pretty hard one so far. From not being taken care of properly, to being so sick I almost didn’t make it. Seriously, I could go on and on about it, but I fear I might start to sound like a sad country song after a while. You see, I have this condition, which is a serious bummer, called IMHA (immune-mediated hemolytic anemia). This means that I am pretty darn limited right now in what I can do. So, in other terms, you (humans) are my best, and only friends right now. Even though I am a young man still, almost a full 1 year old, I still need someone to really take care of me. I require medication daily, and at least 1-2 trips to the vet every month. I also can’t go on any walks right now, or be around other animals, unless my ladies approve, due to the possibility of catching a virus or some bad bacteria that I can’t fight off. Believe me, I have sat down with them and had this conversation many times, but they are right. It’s for my health and safety, and that is the most important right now until I am recovered. My recovery is not a short process, even though my last blood work did show improvement and I have come down on my prednisone too, but I still have a ways to go. Because I can’t be out in the world, doing dog things like peeing on fire hydrants, I need your help in hanging out with me, playing games, and helping me use my brain so I don’t get bored. Because I am a strapping but young man, I need these things in order to be fulfilled. I am still a puppy at heart, and I am behind in my schooling due to my condition. I overheard the ladies tell my current foster that I have so much potential. Not that that surprises me, but I always know what those words mean, that it’s time I need another new home. I am really hoping one of you can provide me with a home that will be longer term, and I can really get comfortable in. My girls seriously have my back. They will be so supportive with my school, but I do need help with my homework still. They provide everything. I even have these nifty, fluffy things that I get to find and eat my food out of. Apparently it’s called a snuffle mat? I know, sounds weird right? Well, regardless, it sure does make me happy and plumb tuckered out. I really am a pretty simple fellow at the end of the day. I love to cuddle on the couch, snore my dreams away, and I really only require a bit of your time each day with my homework and school stuff. If you think you can help this handsome face of mine, please give my ladies your information. They are trying so hard to help me, and I know they really need it.
    Lots of love,
    P.S- I almost forgot to tell you. I guess because I am still sick, I can’t have any surgeries right now, so that means I can’t be neutered for a bit… I don’t know what that means, but I have this gut feeling that I’m not excited for it.

  • Details:Hey guys, it’s me Vada again. Unfortunately my last home didn’t end up working out, and I find myself back with the good folks at Underdogs. Luckily, though, I am living with wonderful people that are teaching me all kinds of new things. I came back with some new anxiety, sometimes new people can worry me a little, and other times I love being around new people. It’s all about understanding my threshold and my learning process. I am getting better everyday though, at least that’s what my foster mom and this amazing trainer named Sheila with Hudson’s Hounds keeps telling me. I do love having four legged friends too. I am still a young pup, just over a year old, so I need to remember that I have to take breaks in play, but it is just so fun I don’t remember to stop. That can frustrate my friends sometimes, so it’s good to have reminders. As you can probably see, I have beautiful long legs, so long in fact that I can trip over them when getting too excited. So while my beauty is something to be in awe of, my grace still needs some work. I now know exactly what I need in my forever home. Someone who understands, or is willing to treat me well, and by well I mean, lots of yummy treats, a warm bed, someone to snuggle with, and someone that is willing to only be force free with me. I am too sensitive of a girl to be with someone that is super loud, or forceful with their handling. I believe it was Mark Twain that once said, “Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” and that really sums up how I want to live the rest of my life. If you think you can provide me with the happiness I want, please send my ladies an application. I can’t wait to meet you!
