Sammy has been a Straw For Dogs outreach client for years and we often offered to bring this 25 lb dog into our refuge and rehoming program. Finally, in December, her family asked if we could find her a new home! It hasn't taken much for her to adapt to living indoors- just a bit of patience and understanding. Her foster family fell in love and adopted Sammy. Don't you want to help us change the world, for one dog at a time? #foster #adopt

Sharing Scruffy again! This sweetie deserves a loving, indoor home. Available for adoption at Mat-Su Animal Shelter.

Scruffy is a 7 year old cocker spaniel mix, with a lot more energy than one might expect from a 7 year old. At one point in life, he was an outdoor dog. More recently, he tried to adapt to apartment life, which he was not as happy with. Scruffy thinks he could try an apartment again if he was with an active family who took long, daily walks as well as the occasional hike, and a fenced back yard would be ideal. Scruffy is an affectionate and smart dog that did not receive a lot of training. He is a good watch dog with a bit of an top dog personality. Sharing his home with other dogs is not something he has enjoyed previously. Scruffy would be best in a one dog home, with no small children. Since he was an outdoor dog for so long, he is not completely house trained. Crate training, as well as attentive, positive and patient training may assist him in learning to do his business outdoors. Thank you to Criss Skinner for Scruffy's snowy shots!
