Training Days!

Ocho, Max, and Almond began their training on Friday, August 26th. Ocho is already shaking hands like a champ! Max shows off his walk on a leash. Almond practices her sit. They are all doing really well and are still available for adoption when their training is complete!

Meet the August Class!

Hiya everyone! My name is Almond. I'm a 1-year old female black lab cross. People keep telling me I'm a very adorable young girl with a great disposition.  I mean, just look at how adorably I tilt my head! I was a stray and had flea infestation which caused some hair loss but I'm getting healthy now that I've been treated. Everyone says I will be a big beauty!

ADOPTED!

Solar and Elvis have both found their fur-ever homes and left graduation with their new families! Congratulations to them and their new families!

Training Days!

Elvis and Solar have started their training, and they are doing wonderfully! Both dogs are getting used to being handled - you can see pictures of them getting their ears, paws, and bellies checked by their handlers. They both have the "sit" command down, and are both good at doing "Stay" in a sit or down position. Elvis is working on rolling over, but often stays on his back until he gets belly rubs! Solar gives "hugs" and loves to lean against anyone who will pet him. These dogs have the sweetest, kindest temperament, and will make a wonderful addition to the family!

Looking for a new best friend?

Hi guys! My name is Solar. I'm an Australian Cattle dog cross. I'm extremely intelligent and insanely sweet (not to toot my own horn or anything)! I'm getting ready to start my classes and when I'm done, my manners will be just as perfect as the rest of me. Are you looking for a new friend? Maybe it can be me!!

Hi everyone! I'm Elvis, a 4-year old American Foxhound. I'm easy going, have a loving temperament, and a real sweetheart. Look deep into my eyes - aren't they soulful? I'm taking classes with my pal Solar right now, but when I'm done, maybe you can make room in your house for this lovable hound dog?

Hi, everyone! My name is Scout! I'm an 18-month old Bernese Mountain Dog mix, and I'll be in Danish's class this session. I'm so excited to meet all of you, and the kids who will be training me. I'm a sweet boy who came in to the Lenawee Humane Society as a stray. No one really knows anything about my past, but that's okay, because I'm looking forward to my future. Once I lick this class they have me going to, I'll be ready for my new home! You can follow me and Danish here on our Facebook page to see how we're doing. 

Meet PSC's newest class member, Danish!

My name is Danish and I am a lovely girl about 5 years old and really want a home of my own.

I am still getting over my ordeal.

I am a victim of the brutal, illegal dog meat trade.

I was grabbed from the street and crushed into a cage with many other dogs and driven away on a truck to cross the border. I could not understand why I was in this cage and why these people were doing this to me. I was terrified and so were all the other dogs crushed into the cages.

I could hear the younger dogs crying with fear as we travelled through the night, the older dogs unable to cope with the stress and heat during the day. Many died as we drove towards the border – I could not help them and I will never forget how bad I felt. I also began to lose hope and was beginning to give up too.

I awoke to the rattling of cages and the truck stopping abruptly. All the cages were taken off and we were released and put into a big truck and taken to a shelter in northern Thailand.

Thanks to a network of caring friends, starting with Soi Dog, to Marley's Mutts Dog Rescue, to our friends at the Devoted Barn, I'm in Monroe and looking for my forever home. My friends at the Youth Center are going to teach me a lot of new tricks...and you know what? I might teach them a little bit too!

I can't wait to see you all at my graduation ceremony! Follow the PSC Facebook page to meet my other classmates and see how my training goes!
