Foster is an 11 month old, playful, loving, PUPPY that is looking for a family to call his own. He has been recently neutered and up-to-date on his shots. When we say PUPPY, we mean he's all puppy! He loves to play with this foster sister, who is two and they will play for hours on end. He is very high energy and would do best with a family who has time to commit to him and his energetic personality. He walks well on a leash and is still working on his potty training. While he does great all day (8 hours) and all night (8 hours) in his crate with no accidents, he is still learning to let his people know when he needs to go out. He has had some accidents, but confident with some training and dedication he will do a wonderful job. We can't say enough about him, he is such a fun, loving puppy who will make anyone happy. He is a big fan of chewing on his cow hoof and laying in your lap. He hasn't quite grasped the iggy blanket snuggle yet, but he is getting there. He is also learning what personal space is, but that its what makes him so lovable Foster has not been around children, so we can't say how he would do, however we do recommend that he has a fenced in yard.

Phoenix is a spry 13 year old male. Like many in their golden years, Phoenixâs sight and hearing are not as sharp as they once were. But Phoenix does not let a little thing like that get him down. He wakes up each day with an unmatched enthusiasm for life. Phoenix can most often be seen following his favorite humans around the house. In an homage to his favorite basketball player, Michael Jordan, Phoenix keeps his tongue hanging out and swinging side to side. That tongue is always available to kiss his favorite humans. Because of his arched back, Phoenix strolls the halls with his own personal side-to-side strut. When Phoenix wants to cuddle with his human, he âleans inâ like no other. Phoenix is so cheerful, he changes the entire attitude of the household. No matter his personal challenges, Phoenix is always super happy. Despite his lack of teeth, Phoenix greets each meal with enthusiasm. Phoenix does not crate well and prefers to sleep with his humans. He would do best in a home without small children. Phoenix sports a washable belly band to prevent marking. Phoenix hopes to retire to his forever home with his long-time traveling companion, Winter.

Winter is a fun loving 6 year old male who is friendly and playful. When Winter sees an invitation from a friendly human with a warm lap to sit in, he leaps with all the enthusiasm of a direwolf. Winter can occasionally seem a bit skittish, but when playing with his much larger foster sister, he shows the brave heart of a lion. Although outweighed by more than 50 pounds, Winter does not hesitate when he sees an opportunity to steal and run off with one of his foster sisterâs favorite toys. Winter enjoys going for walks. Some might call Winter a "biggy" at 18 pounds and a great appetite. His foster parents are working with Winter to slim him down and have him look his summer best. Winter does not crate well and prefers to sleep with his humans. He would do best in a home without small children. Winter is being fostered in Baltimore, Maryland.

Biscuit is a very sweet and loving 13 year young, petite, but over weight iggy being fostered in Morehead City, NC. She currently weighs 17 lbs. Like most iggyâs she loves nothing better than snuggling with her person under a blanket. She will either use a doggy door to go outside to potty or will use a puppy pad and seldom has accidents. She gets along well with the other dogs in the house and will sometimes follow them around hoping for some extra attention. She is slow to trust people but has come a long way since entering foster with MAIGR. Biscuit has just started coming out of her shell and it is a delight to see her becoming more social and even playful. A quiet house without small children is recommended, as she is fearful of sudden movement. She enjoys sleeping in bed at night with her foster parents, but would also do well in a crate with her blankets. Biscuit has done well on a wet food diet and healthy snacks. Biscuit is currently working on her weight with diet control and short walks. Biscuit had some serious health issues when first rescued including mammary tumors and very bad teeth. Now that she is healthy again she is like a new dog, enjoying life for the first time. Visit us on FB at: http://www.facebook.com/IGrescueVa.

Russell is a sweet 14 year old senior boy who is looking for a home to retire in. He is currently being fostered in Summerville, SC. Russell is mostly deaf and blind. He can hear loud and high pitched noises and knows when he hears a whistle it's time to eat! Russell can only see shadows mostly and loves his new pen to walk around in. He is such a good boy about using the bathroom outside but would do better in a home with someone who works from home or is also retired. Because of his older kidneys, Russell drinks a lot of water to stay hydrated and needs to go potty every 2-3 hours. He does very short walks and his favorite thing in the world is to be covered in his blankets! He likes laying in his bed in the sun. He sleeps through the night in his bed as long as he is properly covered. Russell likes to be scratched when you wake him up and sometimes needs help standing up at first. He can travel in his crate for short periods of time if needed. This little guy has come a long way since coming into foster! Visit us on FB at: http://www.facebook.com/IGrescueVa.
