Hickory is a beautiful black and white pittie boy. He is likely the sweetest dog in the world! When Hickory came in as a stray, he was sad, timid and kept his head down. He showed signs of having been neglected. He never barked or growled but just sat there at the gate as if to wait for the next misery. We learned quickly that if you spoke softly to him, he didn't move but if you could see the very tip of his tail wagging. He had hope. One of the volunteers took him out on a leash. It was as if a new dog had appeared. His head was erect, he had a smile on his face and his tail never stopped it's gentle wagging. Since being at the pound, he has had some nice baths and a good diet of healthy food. He walks daily and is quickly developing a fan club. He seems grateful for every kindness and loves to just sit on the floor next to you and cover you with lots of doggie kisses. He gets along with the other dogs and with all the staff and volunteers. He doesn't pull on walks, and takes treats gently. He waits patiently for you to put on his collar and leash, and also sits quietly waiting for his kong at the end of the day. If you are looking to really make a difference in a homeless dog's life, you will not be disappointed with our boy, Hickory. This fella is unusually calm and sweet and will be the one who makes you feel like a million at the end of a long day.

UPDATED: Isabella has had her DNA done and she is a Bull Terrier mix with no pit bull at all. Isabella is a precious soul of a pup who came into the pound with signs of having lived a hard life. She is quite possibly the sweetest and most loving little dog we have ever met. We searched for a name for her and settled on Isabella, as he "Is a Bella" , a Beauty, both inside and out.

Isabella has been with us, between the pound and the humane society for almost a year. She is currently living at the Gloucester Mathews Humane Society. We all love her and are amazed that someone hasn't come to take her home. She is on the small side and is healthy in every way.

She is calm and gentle, taking treats gently and always snuggling in for a hug and giving kisses whenever she can. She walks spritely on a leash and has the prettiest sit. She would do especially well in a calm and quiet household and would make a single person or older couple a wonderful companion. She would make her people feel so loved and would show her gratitude every single moment. We are all in love with Isabella and know you would be too. Please come visit her. She loves company!

Call Joyce and she will put you in touch with Isabella's adoption team!

Know what my favorite Christmas song is? Jingle Bella, Jingle Bella, Jingle Bella rock! Hi, I’m Bella and I’m hoping you, dear reader, might be the one to open your heart and home to a lonely, homeless doggo in need. For Christmas, I’d love to be snuggling with your kiddos next to the fireplace instead of forlornly looking in through the window for another whole year.

I am a Dutch Shepherd mix and I’m probably around four years old. I weigh around 55 pounds, but most of that is in my super shapely, athletic legs. I’m hoping to find someone who might take me running with them, but I’m also okay with long daily walks or even just a fenced in yard. And I’ve got some great news since you’re already 100% sure you want to adopt me- I come fully trained! That’s right, I’m house trained, crate trained, and even leash trained (as long as you use the right kind of collar)!

It takes me several minutes to warm up to new people, so I’m hoping that I can find an owner with enough patience and understanding to help me learn that strangers can become friends quickly. And no worries, this counts for kiddos, too! Once I know they are nice, I’m ready to recruit them into my genuine best friend army. I am able to live with other dogs as long as they are calm and respectful, but I cannot live with cats.

If you are looking for an energetic, intelligent dog to tag along for jogs, walks, car rides, hikes, or even naps on the couch, you are looking for me, Bella! To adopt me, visit THIS LINK to apply online. If you have more questions about my training or behavior, feel free to message The Balanced Dog, LLC.

Choirs here! After months of rehearsals with a dedicated dog trainer, I think I’m ready to find a new audience in my very own forever home. Before Smiles Forever Animal Rescue saved me, I spent most of my life in a shelter, becoming increasingly miserable as each day went by. The rescue hired The Balanced Dog to fix what they thought was dog aggression. Turns out, I just don’t like being caged and I’m not dog aggressive at all. Good news for you since you’re already in love with me!

I currently live in a house with well-behaved dogs of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds but I have to admit, all that time spent in the shelter really stunted my emotional growth and I’m learning very slowly how to interact with other dogs. I do great with well-trained dogs, but if antagonized or bullied, I’m not sure how I’d react. I have not been cat-tested and my trainer believes I likely wouldn’t do well around them. I have no food aggression issues and I’m great with the dog trainer’s kiddo.

I walk great on a leash with the right collar and I’m very well crate trained. I haven’t ever had an accident in my trainer’s house (pretty impressive for a two year old doggo if I do say so myself).

After years of isolation, the thing I love most in the world is to be around people. I have no bite history or aggression issues with humans of any shape or size. Now, I am very young and playful, so I might knock a smaller child down by accident. I mean heck, I do weigh 50 lbs and that might be a lot of dog for a young child to handle.

If you are looking for a young, active dog to suit your young and active lifestyle, you are looking for me, Choirs!

You can also message The Balanced Dog, LLC with any further questions about my extensive training!

Hi friends, I’m Somaya and I’m here to share my Christmas wish with you: a real, true forever home complete with matching forever family and forever couch (will settle for a recliner or even a nice doggy bed)! I know that’s a big wish, but I’m holding out for it because I’ve been a good girl this year. I’ve gotten loads of training and guidance from a very skilled dog trainer and I’m so ready to find a family to impress with my good behavior.

I’m around five years old and I weigh around 55 lbs, so you don’t have to worry about any of the garden variety puppy stuff with me. That’s right, I’m already house trained and crate trained! I’m also great at leash walking as long as you use the right kind of collar. An added bonus- I’m also great with kiddos! So if your little hooman needs a role model or a naptime buddy, sign me up!

My trainer feels that I would thrive in a home where I would either get regular daily walks or be allowed to play off leash in a safe, fenced-in yard. I am not a very high energy dog, but I do need to be exercised daily (just a regular leashed walk will do) because it helps me with my separation anxiety. Personally, I’m hoping to find a family where someone might be able to spend a lot of time at home with me because I am still reconciling some issues with separation anxiety. Hopefully this doesn’t count me out of your home, but I do need to go somewhere where there are no other pets.

If you are looking for an low energy, happy go lucky, kid-friendly doggo to complete your family, you are looking for me, Somaya! To apply to adopt me, visit THIS LINK and apply online. If you have further questions about my personality or training, feel free to message The Balanced Dog, LLC.
