 . Brady .  . Brady .  . Brady .
  • Border Collie
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Entered 6/30/2016 Brady is a 7 year old loving and loyal Border Collie and Lab mix. He loves long walks, snuggling once he's comfortable around you and playing with his tennis ball. Due to his size and energy it would be best if he went to a home with a large fenced in back yard. He is somewhat reactive to other pets due to jealousy so it would be best to have him as an only companion. He walks great on a leash, never pulls and is crate trained. He can be shy and timid at first toward strangers so is best to introduce with treats and outside because he gets nervous and territorial when he feels cornered. Best to go to a family with no children, loud noises stress him out. Brady is neutered, micro-chipped, and up-to-date on shots. He is also house trained. . Call ARF's Adoption Center for more information or email info@arfusa.org at 410-643-8700.

Entered 8/11/16 This is a courtesy posting. Please contact Kara if interested in meeting Buck. 443-928-5919 Buck is a 5 year old Lab/Shep mix. He is neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped and is on heartworm preventative. Buck is such a sweet guy! Unfortunately Buck needs to find a new home. There is a new toddler in the house and Buck isn't real happy about it. He will do best in a home without small children. Buck would do great in a active home. He loves his 2 mile walks per day but once back in the house he becomes a couch potato. He currently has a fenced in back yard and loves chasing the squirrels and rabbits. He has lived in a condo before and he was fine with that too. Buck gets along with most dogs, especially females. Buck has never lived with cats but has visited homes with them and was fine. Buck is crate trained and housetrained. Call Kara if interested in meeting him 443-928-5919

Entered 7/19/2016 ***ADOPTION PENDING*** Charlotte is a wonderful cat who was adopted from ARF as a small kitten.

 . Chloe .
 . Chloe .  . Chloe .
  • Pointer
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Entered 3/17/17 Chloe is a 4 year old pointer mix. She has spent the last three years living in Baltimore. She is very intelligent, knowing commands such as sit, lay, shake, and has been working on stay. She is also potty trained. She is very loving and sweet, often wanting to be close to you and looks for a gentle pat. She loves being petted and playing with her "squeaky" balls. She does get anxious around other dogs, often overly excited and mistaken as aggressive. She has some work to do when it comes to socializing. She loves her family and can be very protective of children when there are people around she doesn't know. She is great with kids, especially infants and loves to lay next to them and protect them. Although she should probably be in a home without young children who she feels doesn't need her protection. She has a tendency to pull on the leash during walks and bark at other dogs. This behavior is actually due to her anxiousness but often misconstrued as aggressive. She loves to run around and can be downright silly rolling around on the ground. She is happiest just being around her humans. Her anxiousness also manifests as "whining" as she stares out the window at other dogs and people. She is not food aggressive and is treat motivated. She loves going to the "spa" once a month where she spends the day getting a bathe, nails clipped, and hanging out with other dogs. Chloe's ideal family would include a young active person or persons, that has a home large enough for her to run around. They should have the time to be able to work with her on her anxiety and socialize her with other animals. Her new family should understand that she is an anxious dog and does not come from a place of aggression. They should be able to provide a consistent routine that includes lots of petting and playing and can appreciate her intelligence and loving nature.

  • Miniature Pinscher, Beagle
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Entered 12/13/16 This is a courtesy posting only. Please do not contact ARF. If interested in meeting or for more information please email home4gonzo@gmail.com Gonzo is a Min-Pin/Beagle mix who joined our family as a puppy 8 years ago and has been our beloved dog ever since. Because of worsening allergy issues in our family, we want to find another loving family to welcome Gonzo into their home. Gonzo is about ~23 lbs. and knee height. Gonzo's mixed breed is estimated to provide love and companionship for ~15 years, and Gonzo has so much to give. Gonzo's energy level is closely matched with owner's activities (chill when humans are chill, and ready to go if you are!). He is an amazing trick dog who can jump through hoops, sit, lay down, roll over, little bear, balance treats on his nose for a flip and catch finale! A real entertainer. He is smart, sweet and loves to spend time outdoors enjoying all nature has to offer and loves indoor time for nap in the corner or invited cuddle. He understands and respects family rules. Gonzo is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. He is current on flea/tick/heartworm meds. A cat free home with fenced in yard is ideal for Gonzo, but he loves walks, too! He loves other dogs and is gentle with kids. A home in which someone is home most of the time is best for Gonzo, as he loves feeling a part of things. The more companionship you can give the better! He loves to be around his family. Adoption fee of $150, interview/home visit, and vet reference to ensure a proper loving home We provide 2 beds, leashes, harness, collars, remaining kibble supply, food and water bowls, remaining supply of flea/tick, heartworm meds, medical records. If interested please email home4gonzo@gmail.com

 . Harper .  . Harper .  . Harper .
  • Schnauzer
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Entered 9/19/2016 This very friendly dog came to us from the lower Eastern Shore. She loves people but doesn't appear at this time to want any dog companionship. No mistaking her affection for humans though. I notice she does her business as soon as she gets outside so that's a good sign she may be house trained. She appears intelligent so if she needs some refresher training I am sure she'll be a quick study in that area. We believe that Harper is 5 years old. Harper has completed heartworm treatment and is doing great. For more information, please call ARF's Adoption Center at 410-643-8700, email info@arfusa.org. Otherwise, you may complete an online application at www.arfusa.org.

 . Jackie .  . Jackie .
  • Labrador Retriever, Chow Chow
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Entered 03/14/2017 Jackie is looking for a loving home to live out her senior years. Below is a note from her family; Meet our gentle JACKIE, our ten year old mix. We have loved her since she was abandoned on the side of the road with her litter mates. She was so young that our children had to feed Jackie and her brother with a syringe of formula. Jackie and her brother, were raised with three other dogs in our home in Stevensville. Jackie is a sweetheart with a calm and loving nature but she can be shy at times. She is happy spending time on her dog bed. She doesn’t pull or tug when on a leash and never chews anything she is not supposed too. Our living situation has changed dramatically and Jackie spends too much time alone. Our prayer is that she can be adopted by someone who doesn’t want a puppy, but needs a sweet friend to spend time with. If you have room in your home and heart for this sweet and gentie girl, please apply online at www.arfusa.org. Jackie would be very frightened in a shelter environment so it is our hope that with a quick adoption she can transition directly from one home to another. For more information please call 410-643-8700 or email info@arfusa.org.

 . Ladybug .  . Ladybug .  . Ladybug .
  • American Bulldog, Basset Hound
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Entered 1/28/17 Ladybug was adopted from ARF when she was a puppy and unfortunately she needs to find a new home. A new baby has arrived in the household and Ladybug is fearful of him. To make it easier on Ladybug she will remain in her home until a new home comes along. Ladybug weighs about 58lbs, She is 3 years old. We think she is an American Bulldog mix, maybe some Beagle or Basset Hound as well. Ladybug is very sweet; she can be very independent but still loves her cuddle time. We are not sure if she is good with cats and as far as other dogs she has only been around the dog she lives with now. There is a good possibility she will be fine with other dogs. Since she is a bit timid a quiet household would be perfect for her. Ladybug is up to date on shots, micro-chipped, spayed and is on heartworm preventative. She is house-trained and crate trained. If interested in meeting Ladybug please submit an application online www.arfusa.org, for questions please call 410-643-8700 or email info@arfusa.org.

Entered 3/14/2017 ***ADOPTION PENDING*** Meet this puppy from a litter of 8 Shih Tzu / Dachshund mixes ! Just7-8 weeks old and looking for loving homes. Sadly the puppies' momma dog was killed when she was hit by a car and the litter was brought to ARF where they were separated in groups of 3 and provided loving foster homes were they could be bottle fed round the clock and be cared for in a home environment. The puppies are old enough to be adopted now. The Adoption fee of $250 includes spay/neutering, micro-chipping, and shots to date. Foster mom's comments: Paxton is my little nervous Nelly and just loves to be held and puts his head down on you. The closer he can get to snuggle the happier he is.

Smore has been back at the center for over 2 years now and we hope someone will come in and see what we see, a beautiful cat who will make an excellent companion and family pet. If you stop by the adoption center she will probably be curled up in the cat tree right at the front door. She'll be happy to be the first to greet you at the door. She's really a very low maintenance cat who requires attention and a spot in a cat tree to make her happy. If interested in meeting Smore, please call the adoption center at 410-643-8700 or email us at info@arfusa.org for more info.
