Layla #31 **special needs**

Layla is a very sweet gentle Basset Hound Poodle mix. We estimate her to be around 9 years old. She gets along great with the six other hounds at her foster home. She likes to “tell” the deer, turkeys and squirrels outside in the backyard that she’s watching them. She tends to be a very mellow, easy dog to have around. She will be sure to greet you with a wagging tail when you get home. Layla would prefer a home with little to no stairs. She does have some issues with her back legs being a bit stiff. After her haircut at Spring Fling she now prefers the dogs beds, so it seems she was getting a little warm so regular grooming will be important for her. She has a hard time with hard food and treats so softened food and treats would be her preference. She is a tiny gal at around 30lbs so cuddling on your lap isn’t a problem. If you’d like a sweet mellow lady as a companion Layla is your gal!


Lucky #39

My name is Lucky and I’m a spunky, fun-loving little girl! I was adopted from a shelter recently but my new mom became sick so I came to MNBR. I weigh about 40 pounds and they tell me I’m about 11 years old, but if you’ve ever seen me jump onto the couch or zoom up the stairs, you might not believe I’m that old! My new favorite place is the porch where I have started my own Neighborhood Watch. So if you come ‘round, I will have to notify everyone, but then we will be friends. I have a problem tinkling sometimes when and where I shouldn’t, but I am on medication for it and it’s working great. I love being outside, taking walks, and going for car rides. I’m very good at the vet and I love meeting new people. I like chasing cats but I’m told I’m the only one who likes it, so I should probably be in a home without cats. But I LOVE other dogs and I LOVE to play, so a fun-loving fur sibling would be awesome! I would love to meet you soon and become a part of your family. You can come to a MNBR event if you’d like, or if you just can’t wait, contact the rescue and we can meet up!


Freyja #48 ** special needs**

This lovely little lady is 5 yrs old and weighs 47 pounds. She is special needs because of her fearfulness. She needs slow, careful introductions to new people. She feels threatened by new people leaning over her or having direct eye contact. Once she knows you, she is very loving. In general, she seems to be more fearful of men, especially if they have beards, but does fine with her foster dad. Freyja is not a high energy dog. She prefers short walks over long ones but will occasionally play with her squeaker ball. She loves belly rubs. Freyja is used to being home alone during the day while her people go to work. She is housetrained and is not bothered by loud noises or thunderstorms. She can be protective of special treats. Freyja has generally done ok with other dogs but occasionally has decided she did not like a specific dog. She was successful attending doggie day care. She likely will do well with easy going, calm dogs.

We feel that Freyja would be happiest in a quiet, adult only home without cats. Although she has not lived with a cat, she seemed a little too interested in the one she met at the vet. Her adoptive family will need to be sensitive to her fears and not rush Freyja into situations that overwhelm her.

Dalia #53  **medical hold**

Dalia came into MNBR heartworm positive. It will take a couple of months to treat this and we want to be sure she’s healthy before adopting her to a new family. So hopefully we get some positive updates in December/January on her treatment update. She recently started treatment which, in addition to being costly, will take 90 days to complete. So far she has been a very happy girl. Dalia is probably 2-3 years old and loves peanut butter kongs.


Begonia #59 **adoption pending**

Begonia is a 2yr old male basset and around 50lbs. We are getting to know this adorable guy, stay tuned for more info.

Henry #60

This handsome hound mix is estimated to be around 5-7 years old and weighs 55 pounds. He came to MNBR from the south along with his daughter Sadie. He is very affectionate and loves to snuggle. He's a good boy, sleeps through the night, and hasn’t had any accidents in the house. He loves sleeping on the couch, the recliner, or anything soft. He is not a big barker and he loves people.


Sparky #62

At 11 years old, we couldn’t say no to this last minute addition to a transport, even when we found out he was heartworm positive. We are going to make sure he’s healthy and give him the pampering he deserves. Stay tuned for updates!


Max #63 **medical hold**

Please welcome Max #63! This husky 6 year old hound weighs in at a whopping 92.5 pounds! He will need to lose some pounds and get his allergies under control before he’ll be ready for adoption so stay tuned for updates!


Qunicy #64

Please welcome Quincy! He is around 6 or 7 years old and 32lbs. So far he’s fitting in just fine with the other dogs in the foster home and the cats. He doesn’t seem to mind the crate if you need to put him in one. Does just fine in the car. He would do best in a home without a lot of stairs. He’s a very sweet guy and loves to snuggle.
