This is Kelly, a sweet Boston Terrier/chihuahua puppy who comes to Homeward Trails from Fayetteville, WV. Kelly is a fearless, spunky little thing who loves to be around her people.

Her foster mom said that she is curious and playful. She jumps into the first lap that is available and loves giving kisses. She is quickly learning how to use puppy pads and is not scared of the other dogs or cats we have. She loves to snuggle up in the sun for a nap, or find a warm lap.

Kelly loves to be around people and will follow you around from room to room, but is careful to stay out from under feet and likes to sit and watch what is happening. She is not interested in fetch, but does enjoy tug, just not as much as curling up on your lap.

Kelly is just a puppy and will need to learn all the basics of house training and walking on a leash. A family that has time to devote to training is a must, but you’ll be rewarded in plenty of puppy kisses!

If you’re interested in meeting or applying for Kelly, please email Lindsay.

Alice came to us from a rescue in Thailand. She is currently living in a foster home with a dog and a cat Alice is friendly when people approach and enjoys being petted. She is independent and self-contained. She does love attention and in her foster home, if the foster’s dog is getting attention she will swing her rear end around to knock the other dog out of the way (but they get along well). She is happy to sit in your lap or sit by your side. And Alice loves to look out windows!

Alice came with bad teeth which had to be removed but that does not get her down. You can see her tongue at the side of her mouth which gives her a cute, distinctive dash of pink on her face
.
Alice is housetrained and walks well on a leash. Alice can be playful (check out her video), but because she is older she might prefer a quieter home without young children who want a more active dog.

Do you need a faithful companion to be part of your life? Alice is your girl!

Missy would do best in a home that is in a more suburban area. She is very scared of the outside world and we are helping her to learn that its not such a bad place. Showing her this is much easier in a quieter neighborhood.

Missy has mad giant strides with her foster family and went from hiding in her crate all day to greeting them, playing with their other dogs, learning their routines and snuggling up for naps. We know she still has a long road ahead of her, but are so proud of the steps shes already taken.

We would definitely want her to go to an adopter who is experienced dog owner, sorry but no first time dog owners. Additionally, someone who understands the road a head is not going to be an easy one, but it will be totally worth it. Shes going to need a lot of patience to help her continue out of her shell.

Kids would be case by case, preferably older kids or kids that are well versed in dog and know that they will need to go slow and give her space. Same with dogs, she does well with other dogs that are on the relaxed side to give her space when she needs it.
