July 19, 2013: I'm Jewel. I was picked up as a stray on the side of the road and no one came to claim me. BDRA is helping me find a new fur-ever home.

I am approximately 8 years old, am chocolate brown and very sweet. I do get along with other dogs, but I need time to get used to them. I am currently living with 7 other dogs. I am pretty much good with children, but I do not live with any and I suggest that my fur-ever home does not have children under 10 years old because I am older and have visual issues.

I still chew on toys. I love belly rubs and sitting with my human on the chair/bed/floor. I want to be with my human and would make an excellent companion dog! I love going for car rides and dog events. I am very calm, I eat slow, and my foster family has no complaints with me. I am housebroken and crate trained, although I do have run of the house in my foster home.

My ideal home would be a home that my humans would make me be the center of attention, spoil me and love me fur-ever.

If you are looking for a calm, older, and sweet dog, I'm it. Please fill out an application and ask for me.

Wasabi had a poor start in life. He was rescued from a hoarder in West Virginia and was one of 60 dogs living in a two story "house". The windows were blackened so no one could see and and also no sunlight could come in, either. It is guessed that these dogs never saw the light of sun until they were rescued. Wasabi is positive for ehrlichiosis, and is currently on antibiotic treatment for it. He also has a middle ear infection which is throwing his balance off a bit, but that does stop him.

Wasabi is a sweet, kind, and gentle soul. He loves to have his ears scratched, and chin rubbed. He will come up to you and want to be in your lap. Wasabi is 38 pounds of pure joy!

So make room for this guy and fill out an application to adopt him today!

Update: 2/4/2012

Lipton is now 1 year old and weighs 31 lbs. He is doing great and his motor skills are improving daily. Lipton loves to run, stretch and play ball with the dogs in his foster home. Lipton still seems to be hopping when he runs but he is getting faster at it.

He is still stiff at times and seems to hyper extend his front legs and walks like a foreign soldier and hops when he runs. As you can see in his videos this does not slow Lipton down from playing.

Lipton enjoys all toys and especially loves to chew on Nyla Bones.

Lipton is still very curious of the cats but does not seem to want to harm them he just plays rough which some cats may not enjoy. I do not let him unattended where he is in contact with the cats.

Lipton is a total lovebug and is housetrained but sometimes it takes Lipton a little longer than most to go to the bathroom. Lipton very seldom will use the bathroom on leash and he goes for walks daily.

He understands the sign for sit ,come and no/stop. He loves treats ,mealtime and playtime outside. Lipton loves to go outside and walk around the yard investigating. He walks well on a leash and is very good traveler.

Lipton sleeps in a crate in the bedroom at night and is in an expen during any daytime hours his foster family is away from home and where he can see the other dogs in the home.

He loves other dogs in his home and is very friendly with them.

He does not like strange dogs to run up to him as he will give a little silent snap.Not sure if it is he is beng protective of me or because he is Deaf and Blind in one eye and he feels threatened.

A cat free home may be best for Lipton or a home with a tolerant cat.

A fenced in yard is preferred for Lipton as he does enjoy to be able to stretch his body out, it is also improving his motor skills as it is also for Lipton's safety.

Lipton does not have any recall and can not be off leash outdoors.
