a one year old Terrier / Whippet cross. She's irrresistibly adorable,
petite, bossy and very high energy. She does well with many other dogs,

sweet, fun, well mannered and good with most of the
other dogs we've introduced him to. Obie is learning
basic obedience and house training, and is a perfect gentleman.

a three year old Staffordsire Bull Terrier. A "Pocket Pit Bull,"
Ty is only about 25 pounds, and about 20 pounds of that is his head.
He's our little "stud muffin," because he REALLY loves the ladies.
He must say all the right things, because he's a big hit with them, too.
Ty is not cat or small animal safe, but he loves his humans.
This little guy is alllll muscle, super athletic,
scary smart,and is on his way to becoming an amazing dog.
has had a rough time in his young life.
He was found by a Kentucky Animal Control Officer in horrible condition.
He was skin and bones, with a collar that had grown into his neck.
Several good samaritans got involved in this boy's life, and have
been been working toward finding him a home.
We adore him, and he is a perfect gentleman with us,
but, probably because of his past, Kuma
has developed some aggression issues.

your bestest buddies.
and Stella are purebred Jack Russell
puppies born in January 2008.
They're extremely sweet babies, with typical JRT personalities.
They must go to homes with experience with the breed, fenced back yards,
and no children under the age of 10.
Dorey has already gone to her new home
and is doing great with Big sister Chae!
Little Bananna is
a purebred JRT, and she's momma to Stella and Carmine.
She didn't fare well in the puppy mill, and, while she's fine physically,
the abuse took its toll. Nanny so wants to be loved, but it's hard for
to trust new people. She needs someone who is
patient, loving and kind who will let her come around at her own pace.
Arwen and her
sister, Aspen, (the "Little
were two puppies in a very large litter who wound up at
the Union County Humane Society. The girls came to
us as fosters at about three months old.
We posted their photos on Petfinder, and took
them to as many adoption events as we could manage.
Though lots of people fell in love with the girls,
no one has ever decided to make them part of their family.
The girls have gotten used to having an extremely active lifestyle,
with the opportunity to run for several hours every day.
Potential adopters must be able to provide a very active lifestyle.
girls show us what "living life to its fullest"
really means, and we love to look out our back door
and watch them chase each other around the yard.

Please consider Thelma and give a hound a chance.
is a precious young goofball of a dog. You've got to see him in
action to know what I mean. He's got the funniest style of moving
- like he was put together from leftover parts that don't quite fit.
is another youngster who needs to run! He does great with
the tough girls - he comes on too strong for some of the
more mild mannered girls in our pack.
has a tendency to have some minor skin problems.
Nothing serious, but he came to us with some hair loss
in small patches on his back and sides.
Good nutrition and lots of love and attention is the cure.

he's definitely a "You Tube" star in the making!

Jersey is a beautiful,
two year old Saint Bernard.
She came from a family who bought her at a pet store,
then decided to give her up when she got close
to being her full size, slobbery self. Jerz was up
for adoption for over a year, all the while
getting really used to her active lifestyle. Jerz
hangs out with Arwen and Aspen, and the three of
them are extremely fit and high energy.
had a few people interested in her,
but so many just had the attitude that
this was a cheap way to get a Saint,
and that's hardly the kind of home
we're looking for for our dogs!
the "Little Girls," now Jersey's gotten used to
this three and four hour playtime that
she gets every day, it becomes
almost impossible to find a home
where that will continue. (We thought we had one,
but they had little dogs, and Jersey is not too
good with the little ones. That was disappointing.)
have a committment to our dogs that they wll only
to go to homes where their lives will be as good
or better than the lives they have here with us.
we can't find that kind of home, they stay here.
So Jersey is now a permanent
of the snips @ Pawsitive Energy Pack,
and she is very, very loved by all of us here.
She and her buddies, Arwen and Aspen,
make sure that no one gets onto the property
without getting "the talk."
She's getting to be so very much like
her human mother...
is an absolutely gorgeous
American Staffordshire Terrier who was abandoned
with us after coming here for boarding. Hypnotic's
human spent very little time with him, and as a result,
Nottie had very little use for we human beings for
a very long time. We tried to get him into a Pit rescue,
but nobody wanted to work with him because
he didn't have that typical goofy, loving Bully personality.
(One rescue person who came out to meet him
told us she was afraid of him!)
Nottie understands that some
humans are wonderful creatures. He loves an audience,
and will show off anytime there are people around to
watch. He's become very affectionate, and is just
a wonderful, wonderful guy.

of the snips @ Pawsitive Energy Pack,
and after a year and a half, finally
loves us as much as we love him.
Mr and Mrs Jones
abandoned in a cow pasture, frightened, dirty and adorable.
He is a sweet little imp of a dog,
with a big grin and a tail that never stops wagging.
She is a running and swimming machine. She is so
amazingly fast and agile, she looks like a gazelle.
I've never seen a dog make running look so entirely effortless!
doesn't know a stranger.
Mrs does, and she is so very jealous,
and really only shows her loving side when
you can manage to pry them apart.
Jonesy is a Pit cross (maybe a French Bulldog Pitt cross).
That, plus the fact that he and the Mrs
are a package deal, has limited both their adoption options.
and Mrs Jones are now official members
of the snips @ Pawsitive Energy Pack.
Their silly personalities and funny quirks
are so endearing that it's impossible
not to fall in love with them.

frightened little girl, and it takes a while to get her to warm up to
Once you do, she still has a few little quirks to work on,

made a lot of progress in baby steps, and the fact that
she's EXTREMELY food motivated makes it easy for us to let her
know when she's got it right. After a year of work,
she still will bite if startled, so we
believe her issues are very deeply seated and
will never resolve completely.
