About Stormy

Hey there world, I’m Stormy.  I’m an almost 3-year-old, 50-pound, Texas Blue Lacey (yes, my foster mom did the DNA test).  In fact, my birthday is July 15th – it would be so cool if I could celebrate in my new forever home.  Please make sure you read my whole profile though because I need a specific adopter because my past life before rescue was not good. When I first came into rescue in July 2019, I had been in a shelter for 6 months after having been found stray.  No one even named me at the shelter that whole time I was there.  They just told me to go in and out of my run.  When WRT came to take me, I wasn’t sure how to act.  Every time I was in a stressful situation the only way I knew how to soothe myself was to turn in circles and chase my tail and grab my back leg with my teeth.  After arriving in foster care, my foster mom thought there might be something more medically wrong with me because I wasn’t eating right so rescue started looking into possible neurological issues.  She advocated every step of the way for me.  So, we went to a neurologist who put me on seizure medication thinking that I was potentially having pre-seizures.  The medication, however, didn’t help my anxiety or lower my need to self soothe in a crazy way.  All neurological tests that they did came back negative, so we proceeded with trying to determine if the way I was acting was behavioral. That’s when I met my favorite person in the whole world.  Maegan Bardes with The Confident Pooch and my boarding guys, Alex and Ray, with Hudson’s Camp Canine.  Maegan realized that my behavior was severe OCD and she started working with me to help me learn how to be the dog everyone knew I could be.  I stayed and trained with her for 3 months until we thought it was time that I go to a foster home.  Unfortunately, my first foster home had a train that went right by the potty area and that absolutely freaked me out so I went back to stay with Maegan until a new foster could be found.  I have now been with my new foster family for almost 3 weeks now, so they know pretty much what I need for a forever adoptive family. I need a very calm and quiet environment.  Someone that has a consistent and quiet routine and that has a very calming gentle nature.  Preferably a home with a solid fence and very few cars coming and going for me to see – all you people out in the country this is you.    You see, you wouldn’t believe how far I’ve come in almost 4 months.  I don’t spin anymore to chase my tail or grab my leg, I walk wonderfully on leash (even a grandma could walk me), I sit, stay, and go to my place.  I’m housebroken and my crate is my den.  I sleep in my crate every night after getting a little cookie before bed and I don’t whine or cry.  I also do not take any seizure medication anymore.  My foster mom has me on some Melatonin just to take the edge off my anxiety but is backing that down the more adjusted I get to my calm environment.  I ride in the car without barking now and if you want to take me out to Home Depot I'll be a really good boy and walk right beside you. My OCD still does express itself in some weird ways, but nothing a patient person couldn’t handle.  I bark at shadows on the fence and sometimes in the house until I realize they aren’t out to get me.  When I get anxious about something like my shadow if you put me on my place bed it’s like a soothing blanket.  I know to stay on my place and not whine or be anxious.  My place bed is also used to help me with my fear of cars going by.  We are working on continuing to help desensitize me to passing cars.  I’m still working on not rushing out the door to go bark.  If you have a dog door that isn’t the automatic kind where I must wear the collar that will be better as the sound from the automatic dog doors escalates my anxiety.  The least amount of distractions I have the better I will be, so keeping your blinds closed so I can’t watch cars pass outside would be helpful.  I also still lick my paws a lot to soothe myself.  I have licked my fur off in some spots but when my foster mom gently puts her hand on my leg and tells me “Shh”, I stop.  Sometimes she has to tell me more than once before I settle and just rest.  I love people and am really sweet.  I have not been around any children, but my foster mom thinks the activity that small children bring to the home wouldn’t be the best for me.  I do like to play with toys and will throw them up in the air.  A home with other dogs is not out of the question, it would just need to be a dog that is very laid back and doesn’t react to every noise they see and hear. If you can’t tell, I just need a chill environment.  I know that is out there for me to finally get my forever home.  My trainer, Maegan, will work with any adopter that adopts me in the Dallas area.  Please ask about me if you are in Dallas. ##454693##

I’m St. Charles, otherwise known as Charlie. I’m a 7-year-old, 70-pound male blue Weimaraner. In my past life, I came into rescue in December of 2018 as part of a cruelty case after having been severely neglected and starved, but those days are long behind me. In fact, I heard my foster mom saying that she wasn't sure this day would ever be possible to be "ready for adoption" because I came in so frail and sick.  I love the rescue life! My favorite thing to do is be everywhere you are. I love to cuddle on the couch and I get along just dandy with my four-legged brother and sister even though my sister doesn’t like me much. Cat’s are a no-no though. I use the doggy door like a champ. I can be crated but I don’t like it, so you’ll have to give me treats to go in. I almost always behave nicely while Mom’s away, but I’ve been known to counter surf while Mom’s at work. My foster mom doesn't have children, but I'm pretty sure I would be ok with kids as long as they treated me real nice.  For the most part, I listen real good and will do most anything for treats! My foster Mom always says I’m special and she’s right. I’m a special needs dog because I have a heart murmur and dialated cardiomiopathy (DCM). That means I’ll need medication for the rest of my life and a non-grain free diet. Have no fear, I always take my pills in a treat! Because I wasn’t taken care of properly, I had those nasty heartworms, but treatment is behind me now. I came through with flying colors. I just adore my humans and I love to give hugs! Even though I do okay with other dogs, I love to have attention just for me! I like taking short walks, and I love to sleep on my comfy beds right near my foster Mom. Are you looking for a best fur-ever friend? I’m just the special boy for you!  I am neutered and I am currently being fostered in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. ##359219## show less
