2 year old male great pyrenees in foster
Louis was surrendered by a family at 1yr old and was originally obtained at a pet store. He was not well socialized, lived in a fenced yard, the owner had 4 kids and bred bulldogs. They reported the bulldogs were attacking him and he was miserable. He currently lives with 3 kids 10-15 years old and 3 cats, chickens. I brought home a Newfoundland pup when he was 1.5 and they love each other. He has always been very anxious, is scared of men, hats, unusual clothing, motorcycles, bicyclists. He is overall good with other dogs. About 1 year ago he started to develop anxiety towards strangers in the house, mostly teenage boys and men. He always has been a little off and on nervous when he sees my husband come in the house but then immediately calms when my husband talks to him. We obtained the help of a trainer and started positive reinforcement stranger training. He seemed to still be very unpredictable and would react very strongly to some but not others. We started to crate him when strangers came in, which has worked well. Still giving treats and positive reinforcement in the crate. Louis will need a home with an experienced Great Pyrenees owner. If you want to know more about Louis please contact Cornelia at 508-435-6938 or by email at baypathcornelia@gmail.com.

3 year old male domestic shorthair / mix in foster
Milo is a very sweet cat who was abandoned by his owner. Milo is a big 15lb boy who will greet you every time with a big meow and he is quite talkative. He is very lovable and will jump right onto your lap then makes his way right up to your face to nuzzle and give kisses. He is a purring machine and is playful but he does get a bit frisky with his mouth and claws, so not good for small children. He is good with dogs. Not good with other cats. Milo does have a skin issue which will requires a grain free diet and an inexpensive medication.

Billie is one sweet boy! He was a very loving and loyal companion to his owner until they passed away. Billie is now ready to start a new chapter in his life. He's a perfect gentlemen in the car and a dream to walk on a leash. Since he lived a pretty sheltered life he probably would do best in an adult only home. He seems to like other dogs as long as they are not too rambunctious. He is currently not at the shelter so please email baypathjulie@gmail.com for more info.

Terry is a sweetheart who is looking for his forever home. He is a shy guy who is looking for a family willing to give him the time and space to be the goofy guy we know he can be once he knows he can trust his people. A home with another confident dog to show him the ropes. Kids can be overwhelming for him, so an adult only home or older teens would be ideal. He spent time in a foster home in Louisiana before making the trip to Baypath, and his foster says he loves to play with plastic water bottles! Terry is currently in a foster home, so please cal for more info or email adopt@baypathhumane.org if you think you can provide a loving home for Terry.

2 year old female retriever, labrador / mix in foster
If ever there was a dog in need of country living it's ZZ. This darling girl is super friendly and loves people. She was hit by a car and has recovered, but cars and car noises are stressful to her. She needs to live in a very quiet area where she can play in a large fenced yard and/or get walks in an area with very little car traffic. If you have a pet-free home and either a big fenced yard or live on a quiet street or near wooded trails, ZZ could be the girl for you! She's an extremely smart girl and can't wait to show off all she's learned through the training program she graduated from. Like any young dog, she'll do best with plenty of physical and mental exercise. We think she'd rock at agility training even canine frisbee. She is looking for her forever home where she can unwind and let her true, beautiful self shine! She is in a foster home currently, so please email adopt@baypathhumane.org or call the shelter for more info.
1 year 11 month old female dalmatian / mix
Pigeon is a special girl! She's super social and seems to get along well with lots of dogs, though sometimes she's perfectly content to hang out by herself. Pigeon is not good with cats. She is very affectionate and loves her people. She has a youthful, playful side but also likes to chill out by your side. Pigeon is very high energy and walks great on a leash. She would do best with an active owner with previous dog experience who is willing to tucker her out. She is young and will require additional positive reinforcement training. She is extremely responsive to yummy treats which will help greatly in her training. We believe she is deaf, but that doesn't seem to bother her. She loves to play with toys and goof around. She's a good girl who's already crate trained. She's just the right size - not too big and not too small. She is a love bug and cute as a button...those ears...so adorable. Please call for more info or come and meet Pigeon today!
2 year old female domestic shorthair / mix
Ryu is a special girl. She has a history of litter box issues, so we are looking for a very special someone to give her a chance. She would do best as the only cat, and she needs a family who will be willing to be patient and try different things if the litter mistakes continue. She would do best in a quiet home, and although she has never been outdoors she may need to acclimate to being an in/out door cat or a barn cat if that helps with her litter habits. Please call the shelter to talk more about our girl Ryu! Ryu has gorgeous coloration and reminds us of an Abyssinian. She does like to purr and loves to be petted. Ryu is quite talkative and loves to play with any toys. She does well with other cats and cat friendly dogs. At times she is fearful so would prefer a quiet household. Ryu can be stressed easily and will pull her fur out at times. She is a lap cat and will sometimes let you pick her up. Ryu needs a home that will be patient with her and understand she will take time to adjust to everyone in the household. *She is still getting adjusted to shelter lifestyle, please call to see how she is doing. Please come meet her today!
3 year old male coonhound / mix
Meet this awesome boy Topper! He is a big boy and can be a love with patience. He's looking for a quiet home where he can have a peaceful life. Topper is the cutest boy; he absolutely loves to play the chase game and will play bow his human friends. He also loves squeaky toys and will throw them in the air by himself. Here is a great update from his foster family: 'Topper adjusted to his new environment (big back yard with some woods...not too bad to take for a hunting dog) in just a few days. He is very affectionate with me; probably because he knows I will be there to give him those long walks he so enjoys. To get my attention he will use his paw to "touch" me...although he doesn't realize his touch is a little strong or he will come up to me and lean into me devouring all of the attention I am so readily willing to give. He so enjoys human attention but also displays independent tendencies. He is a hound through and through..enjoying the game of searching for the neighborhood foxes when we are out walking. Fortunately we have options on which road to take so he can be diverted before he goes into full out hunting mode. We have had a puppy visitor a few times and they adjusted to each other pretty well, but I think he would be best suited with a household without other animals. He is a loveable dog who wants a human to love him!'
3 year old male coonhound, redbone / mix in foster
Hi, I'm Tater Tot! I'm happiest when close to people. I also love to run and play with other dogs. Being out in a fenced yard would be awesome! I am too interested in cats to be living with them! My human friends say I'm good on walks-I love checking out the neighborhood! I'm polite, rarely bark, and am already housebroken. Because of my good behavior, I have the run of the house with my foster parents. I like when they come home and tell me what a good boy I am! I need my forever home to be a calm, adult only place where there is no pressure from lots of noise, people or kids. Although I love to chill out, I can be very timid around new things like walking through doorways, seeing reflections from TVs and skylights. I just need someone loving and patient who'll give me the time to get to know the lay of the land. I also need time to get to know someone before being comfortable with having my space invaded so I will need someone who can help keep me feeling safe. Love, Tater Tot
1 year 11 month old male terrier / mix
Fraggle is a young terrier mix whose adorable face and personality will win your heart. He might look like a Wheaten Terrier, but he is a mix breed and is probably not hypoallergenic. According to his foster family, he loves to play, especially with his ball, but is also just as happy to sit quietly by your feet while you're busy with other things. He also loves to go for walks in areas where it's quiet and he isn't worried about lots of people and other dogs, since he is reactive on leash. Like many adolescent dogs, Fraggle can be anxious when strangers come in to the house or come too close to him too quickly when outside. His foster mom has been working on this with him and he is definitely making steps towards becoming more confident. He is house trained and crate trained. ** Please note: We know Fraggle looks like an adorable muppet, but he's an anxious guy who is frightened by children and should not live with them. He's been through a lot and needs just the right home to feel comfortable. Must haves for Fraggle: A quiet single-family home with NO CHILDREN, NO CATS, AND NO DOGS. He would not be suitable for an apartment lifestyle. If you fit that bill and have experience with anxious dogs, please give us a call. ** TRAINING: Fraggle is easy to walk on leash and responds to cues for sit, down, paw, wait and "watch me" (especially if he knows there are cookies nearby). He loves to train and is able to learn new behaviors very quickly. As he is still working on his reactivity to other dogs and strangers, his training can easily be done at home with great success. He will also do best in a home with a fenced-in yard so that he can burn off some of his energy without the worry of strange dogs or people approaching him. Positive reinforcement is the way to help this boy achieve his potential as a great companion!
2 year old male hound / mix in foster
Looking for that perfect dog? Well keep looking, because I am NOT your man! It's true! Your kids can't sit on my head or dress me up and wheel me around in a wagon, there won't be any cute selfies of us sharing a slice of pizza and I definitely won't be cuddled up next to you in bed! In fact, I have to be honest with you...after having been bounced around to a number of places over the last year or so, I'm at the point where I've gotten pretty darn picky about who I'm going to be heading home with. One-nighters with people who fall in love with my smiling face but don't want to take the time to get to know the real me behind the irresistible grin just aren't cutting it any more. So let's be honest here. If this is going to work for the both of us, there are some things you need to know about me. Don't worry, I won't judge your stuff if you don't judge mine! I'm generally a pretty happy guy but like that certain friend everybody has, I can be a little bit...quirky. In fact Liz, the Shelter Director, calls me "crazy pants." What? I think it's cute! The Bad and The Ugly...Let's start with the bad and ugly first. I don't like sharing my food. Be honest with me here. Do you really want someone reaching over and grabbing your last French fry? Right...me neither! I just need a little space if I'm going to be able to enjoy my meal. Being up on the furniture...not a good look for me. Remember when you were little and your brother wanted the whole couch to himself and he pushed you on the floor when your mom wasn't looking? Yeah, I admit it, I'm that guy. My foster mom Terry (who is the most awesome person!) says I am happier on the floor or on my own bed or in my crate. And she's right...I mean really, we all know I'm a dog right? The floor's A-okay with me! And last, but not least, I'm a bit of a freaky sleeper. Startle me when I'm sleeping and I come up swinging! Dude, I need my beauty sleep to be uninterrupted! You think these good looks are easy to maintain? Just give me a heads up, call my name when you're coming and it'll be just fine. So, still on board? Great! Finally! On to the good stuff! As I said earlier, the aforementioned exceptions not withstanding, I'm a pretty happy guy. Other dogs? Love 'em! Nothing like a little four-legged companionship to make a guy feel complete. You know what I mean...talking to me all day might be fun, but sometimes don't you just want a conversation where somebody speaks your language? Me too! Kitty in the house? Meow baby - I can speak that language all day long! However, if you don't have a live-in friend for me, no worries, I promise it's not a deal-breaker. Wheels! I love 'em! Car, truck, motorcycle side-car...man, I'd live on the road if I could! Anywhere you want to go, I'm the co-pilot for you! Balls? Sticks? An old boot? I'm your boy! You throw it, I'll bring it back. And my favorite thing? Food! My foster mom says I am super food-motivated and easy to train. I have no idea what that means, but you bring the cookies and I'll do the dancing! Oh, and I never "go" in the house. Yay me! So what do I really need? Patience, time, understanding, some training (honestly, can't we all improve just a little bit more?), no kids (man, they kind of freak me out a bit), basically a family of one or more who gets my weirdness and embraces it. I think Dr. Seuss said it best; "We are all a little weird, and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love." So what do you think? Want to get weird together? If you think you can handle it, give the shelter a call and maybe we can meet and split some fries (on our own plates of course!) ***Thanks to a Petco Foundation grant, Baypath will be sponsoring a training class for his lucky new family!
