Gilly #25 **medical hold**

5/18/18 Update: Hey you guys!!!!  It's been a while since my last post and I have some great news to share.  I had dental surgery last week and I did GREAT under anesthesia!  They removed the tumor on my cheek, the skin tag on my belly, and a small thing on my right tonsil, and all came back BENIGN!!  (Are you impressed with all the big words I'm learning?)   I still have another dental surgery ahead of me, and then we have to deal with that thing on my bum.  I'm not looking forward to any of it so I had foster mom add "extra big jar of peanut butter for Gilly" to the grocery list.  I'm still on medical hold but if you can't wait to meet me, just let the rescue know and we car arrange a date.

3/5/18 Update: Hey everyone, great news - all of my lumps and bumps are benign! But the doctor still wants to remove two of them, and I still have that teeth cleaning to endure. So I'm still not ready for my forever home, but I will be! My eye infection and upper respiratory infection are clearing up. 

Hello Everyone! My name is Gilly. I'm estimated to be around 11yrs old and I weigh 47lbs. My family adopted me 10 years ago in Missouri, but then decided they couldn't care for me anymore so they dropped me back at the shelter. Some very nice people brought me to Minnesota (it’s cold here!) and now I have a foster mom and a foster brother, a 10 year old basset hound. I’m not food aggressive, toy aggressive, or any kind of aggressive. I don’t even know what the word means! I like to go on walks and car rides. I’m getting up there in years but I still get around just fine.  I’m house-broken and I’m fine resting on the floor, but if you want to lift me onto the couch, I won’t complain about it! I don't even need to be kenneled when foster mom leaves. The doctors wants to check out some bumps and lumps on me, and clean my teeth. I’m also getting over a respiratory infection and an eye infection, so I’m not quite ready for my forever home just yet. But my foster mom will keep you updated on everything, so check back in to see how I’m doing!


Blanche #32

Blanche gets along with cats and dogs both, but would most likely be fine as an only pet too. what she craves and seeks out at all times is interaction with people. Because of this she has a bit of separation anxiety. We estimate her around 2 years old. 


Layla #31

Layla is a very sweet gently 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. If you’d like a sweet mellow lady as a companion Layla is your gal!

fred #38

Fred is a 2 year old Basset Hound/Husky Mix. He is extremely playful, highly energetic so he’d like a home with a family that understands his puppy energy. He does good with other dogs so he’d also do well in a home with another dog to play with. He is a very sweet dog and likes to cuddle.  He can be trusted to be home alone and doesn’t need to be kenneled. When Fred gets excited he tends to bark, and can be a bit stubborn when it comes to listening. But not unusual behavior for a young 2 year old dog. If you are looking for a fun and energetic pup Fred is your guy!


Charlotte #35


Charlotte is a snuggly and active little girl who is around 4 months old.  She belongs to the same litter as Luna. We are estimating her birthday around February. She loves going on walks and being around people. She does well with other dogs, cats, and children of all ages. She walks wonderfully on a leash and is working hard at potty and crate training.


SmoochIE #40


Smoochie is a very sweet, shy, 5 month old girl, who loves to give kisses. Her forever family will need to have a fenced yard and another young dog for her to play with. 


Lucky #39

Hi, my name is Lucky and I think I am about 11 years old. I was adopted recently from a shelter but my new mom became sick so I came to MNBR. 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 am quite spry for my age, and can zoom up and down stairs, over obstacles and onto furniture. I love my walks but the car makes me nervous so foster mom is helping me out with that. I would love to meet you soon and become a part of your family. I tend to chase most cats so I should probably be in a non-cat home, but a dog sibling or two would be awesome! You can come to a MNBR event if you like, or if you just can’t wait, contact the rescue and we can meet up!
