Meet ADELAIDE JULIETTE! This happy wiggle butt is almost impossible to get a good picture of l unless I can catch her either not paying attention to me or doing so while she sits nicely knowing a treat awaits her. :) We are still working with Adelaide's basic training, but she is progressing nicely! For not having a whole lot of structure, she is still very well behaved! Adelaide is also super loving. She can be a bit mouthy when she gets super excited, but she is still very much a puppy and has come quite a way with us working with her to be nowhere near as mouthy as she was a couple months ago. :) Adelaide is available to foster with someone who understands they would be working with her to help her advance in her training. We would like to see her a little more solid in her foundation before we make her available for adoption. She listens very well and is eager to learn, love, and see that she makes you happy. If interested in fostering, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet ALBERT ISAAC, our happy, well-mannered boy! He is 6 years old, good with dogs, and loves kids. He is unknown with cats. Albert has come a long way since being rescued from a small, rural shelter and has been heart worm negative, thanks to RADAR helping us with his treatment when we first rescued him! Albert is such a well-behaved boy. He is dog friendly, always showing proper etiquette and response, and is always loose and wiggly. Albert is a people pleaser and has shown nothing but love and happiness. He is such a happy, loving boy! He is gentle with everything he does, even in his play and loves to lie next to you for snuggles or simply just to be close! He does wonderfully on leash and is crate and house trained too! To foster or adopt Albert, please email Dogs of Destiny at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

This is AMBER MICHELLE!! We rescued this beautiful girl from the shelter she had lived in for almost a year after having been rescued from a life on a chain. We had been following her story for a while, and she had come so far with the staff and volunteers at the shelter!! Her mom and her brother came in with her and her brother was rescued a while ago. Her mom... having succumbed to the darkness that life on a chain can bring...was not so lucky. While she warmed up to staff and volunteers after months and months of working with her, she was not predictable with new people she would meet, was aggressive toward other dogs, and the shelter ended up making the decision to euthanize her. :( On intake into the shelter, Amber was not a dog friendly dog and while she was very leery of people, but she was never aggressive toward them. This past year, the shelter staff and volunteers worked with her continuously and just a few months ago, they posted a video of amber doing very very well with another dog. We received a desperate plea for her, as her time was running out. She had survived at the shelter for so long because other dogs were leaving as the kennels would once again fill up. She has settled in with us very nicely and has been doing very well with her interactions with other dogs. She is still nervous upon meeting new people, but she warms up pretty easily once she realizes they are not there to harm her. Amber does well in her crate but will need some work to get her house-trained since, as we mentioned previously, she was abused, neglected, and always outside in her previous life. Amber is super smart and learns quickly. She loves to give hugs, to say hello, and to play fetch! She will bark at you if you’re taking too long to get her breakfast, so you better not be late for meals! 😊 If interested in adopting or fostering Amber, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet April Sophia! Our senior lady has super spunk!! April was stuck in a shelter for over a year after her owner passed away. The staff at Isle of Wight shelter knew there was just someone out there for this loveable gal... and they were right! We asked if they had any other long timers or difficult to place dogs, and they introduced us to April. April currently needs to be the only dog in the home. As loving and playful as she is with her people, she doesn’t like to share the spotlight. But We have been working at getting her better socialized, as we think that may be part of her diva syndrome, and she is doing much better with her dog interactions! She does very well with older, more mellow type dogs but still isn’t to a point where we think letting her have free, unattended reign with other dogs would be okay, but we do think she could handle being with another dog that was understanding to her bossiness and …hey, if she wants to be the only dog anyway, that’s okay by us too! We know there is a perfect forever or foster home out there for her! If interested in April, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet AURORA Marie! This beautiful blue brindle lady is good with all people and good with other dogs but can be a little off-putting at first. She loves to check in with you for snuggles/praise when out and about and loves her snuggles on the couch too. She doesn't like to be far from you, so while she plays, she would much rather it be just something interactive with you. Aurora does well in the house when given free reign of it on her own and is also good in her crate. She can be a bit of an escape artist, so the hard shell crate is what we use and what we would recommend for her. If interested in adopting or fostering, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet BRIDGETTE RHIANNON! This little wiggle butt is easiest to catch a photo of if she is anticipating dinner! :) Bridgette came to us as an extremely urgent case from the shelter. For her safety, due to the cruelty case/investigation, she needed to get out of the shelter ASAP. Bridgette is a happy-go-lucky girl, and you'd never know she has been through some pretty hard times if she didn't have the marks on her body to prove it. She is very good in the house and in her crate and makes for a wonderful snuggler. If interested in adopting or fostering, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Calvin is not yet available for adoption, but we are working with him to overcome his nervousness around people from having been severely abused.

Meet CAMILLE SHARON (CAMMIE)!! This little beefcake of a girl has a heart and personality to match her ears: big, beautiful, and always bringing a smile to your face! Cammie is good with other dogs but can seem a little stalker-ish/stand off-ish when first meeting a new dog. Once she realizes she is okay, though, she seems more disinterested in them and leaves the other dog trying to get her to focus to engage in play :) Cammie is good with all kinds of people and is house and crate trained. She can be a little pulley on the initial start of a walk, but she typically settles in really well after the first few minutes. If interested in adopting or fostering, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet CHLOE!!! There just aren't enough nice things to be able to describe this sweetheart of a gal! Chloe is very gentle when taking food and giving kisses. While she likes to romp around in the yard, she doesn't necessarily have any particular type of a game she likes to play, and she does check in with you for pets and praise while romping about. She can be very nervous/on guard when meeting or seeing people wearing hats, so it is best to ensure people she meets are not wearing them. She can also be reactive at the vet's office/strange places toward other dogs she doesn't know. This could be in part because Chloe was in and out of vet's offices and back and forth to specialists when we determined she had cancer. She had surgery to remove the cancer and has been cancer free for over a year now! Along with her regular check ups, she needs to be checked to ensure she is staying cancer free. She is a very sweet girl and she has a sassy "talking" side too, and she will bark at you to let you know you aren't moving fast enough to give her meals or her treats, so you've got to be on top of that stuff! :) CHLOE wasn't very socially appropriate with other dogs while she was at the shelter. While at the shelter, she would do okay with other dogs until she became overly excited or overly stimulated and then would mount them. Once she did, she wouldn't really respond to any correction another dog would give her to let them know they didn't like being mounted. Since she has been here, she has been doing very well with her baby gate interactions and her on leash interactions. We have also seen a significant decline in her trying to mount the dogs she interacts with! She is doing very well! Chloe is very well behaved in the house when left alone and also does very well in a crate. She takes a little while to fully open up to you and show you her goofball side and her snuggly side, but once she does, the full spectrum of her sweetness really shines through! If interested in adopting or fostering, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

DAISY JANE...Oh, those ears!! Daisy is a gentle soul who loves people of all ages and is house and crate trained. She has been doing very well with her on-leash interactions with other dogs and even does well when dogs come up to greet her ridiculously excited through her kennel. When Daisy gets excited, instead of running around, she bounces around like a bunny :) She has a calm energy when she plays and doesn’t get too excited. She loves, loves, loves getting her belly rubbing time in too! If interested in fostering or adopting Daisy, please email us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet DALIA PIXIE! She is a 5-year-old female bulldog mix. Instant heartthrob Dalia Pixie is simply stunning. She is a gorgeous girl, but even better, she is as loyal as the day is long. She is an attentive and affectionate girl, and her sloppy kisses are to die for. Dalia Pixie looks to her person for direction and guidance and wants to make you happy. She has done well with other dogs here with proper and gradual introductions and also has been good around kids of all ages. She is a big girl at around 85 pounds, but she takes treats very gently. She loves activities that have her interacting with her person like agility! She also makes a great cuddler. Dalia is crate trained and does well when left to have free reign of the house. To foster or adopt Dalia Pixie, please email Dogs of Destiny at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet Dexter Allen! This handsome dude still needs to be neutered, and that will be taken care of prior to any adoption taking place, but he is available! Dexter is a fun-loving guy that enjoys fetch and tug. He has done very well with kids, and we have had no issues with his interactions with other dogs while in rescue. Dexter does well in his crate but does take some time to get used to the house training, as he was kept outside all the time in his previous home. However, with routine and consistency, he catches on quickly. He loves to snuggle as much as he loves to play and has the cutest smile! If interested in adopting or fostering this handsome love, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet DUNCAN CHRISTOPHER!! This super sweet guy is around 6 years old. He is very mid mannered but still loves to have fun! His play energy is low but peppy, and he loves his snuggle time and his peanut butter kongs. Duncan has been through numerous tests to find out what the issue causing his excessive urination and drinking is, but we have not been able to determine a cause. He is healthy all-around though! And all other issues we have had during his testing cycle have been eliminated and seemingly self-corrected. Duncan will need someone understanding of him having accidents because of this condition, but he does very well in his crate and will use pee pads. He receives weekly B12 injections and is also on a cranberry with d-mannose supplement that would need to continue in his foster or forever home. Duncan walks very well on leash and has done very well with people of all ages and other dogs! He is unknown with cats. If interested in giving Duncan a loving home, email at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet ELLA ENCHANTED! She is a 5-year-old darling Female staffordshire mix. Ella Enchanted has come such a long way since we rescued her! She was taken by animal control who found her chained, extremely emaciated with dead puppies around her, and scared to death of human touch. The vet estimated that if she hadn't been saved when she was, she most likely wouldn't have survived another 24 hours. Full of worms and extremely high positive for heartworm, we weren't sure if she would survive the treatment... but survive she has!! She is so happy and loving...and chunky! :) Ella is good with other dogs and did well with vet office cat during her lengthy stay. Ella does need to be fed separately, as having been nearly starved to death, she likes to have her food and knows it is safe. She does take a little while to feel comfortable enough around new people to let you touch her, but once she warms up, she is in your lap and ready for loving! :) If interested in adopting or fostering Ella, email us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet EMMA LYNN! This lady is just as smart as she is sweet! She knows the freezer has her Kong in it, and she will be just as behaved as she needs to be to get it! :) Emma is amazing to walk on leash (she loves her backpack) and will try to chase squirrels and such that she sees. Emma doesn't do well when people surprise her. She can become very barky when someone turns a corner unexpectedly and she is and she is right there. She does it out of fear but will warm up if you give her a chance (and if you have some treats). After that, she is all about the pets and love. We do realize it could be intimidating for some, and we want to make sure she is in a home that is savvy, patient, and most of all, loving because Emma is a great dog! Treats are the easiest way to ensure a lifetime spot in her heart! :) She is with other dogs but can be selective and unknown with cats. She is house and crate trained. If interested in adopting or fostering, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet FIONA MARGARET! This little lady is a sEARious love! ;) Fiona doesn't quite have the game of fetch/catch down yet, but she is getting the hang of it and has fun doing it her way, so that's all that really matters. Fiona is a sweet soul. She is very loving and very well-rounded. Fiona is currently being fostered in a home with cats, dogs, and kids and is doing very well with all of them. She has not met another living thing that she does not like! She is house and crate trained and knows her basic commands. She also loves to play in the water! If you would love to give this girl a foster or forever home, please email us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet Garrett Mitchell! Garrett first arrived to our rescue very broken and only weighing about half of his healthy body weight at 43 pounds. He was full of worms (including heartworms) and had not been treated well. Garrett had no problems putting his hard life behind him and has been a happy, healthy boy ever since we got him all taken care of! He is now around 80 pounds and has the sweetest disposition, along with being a huge snuggle bug and very mild-mannered. He has done well with dogs and children since he has been with us. Garrett does well in his crate and well in the house when left alone. If interested in adopting or fostering, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet Gavin Theodore! Gavin ended up being seized in a county that didn’t allow bully breed types, so he was only allowed to be saved by a rescue at the shelter he found himself in. Gavin is currently not neutered and we will need to get him neutered prior to any custody transfer for adoption. He is a very good boy with a lot of playful "puppy" energy but is super smart and listens very well to redirection/calming directions. He has done well with other dogs here at the rescue. He is a super sweet dude with the most beautiful green eyes. If interested in adopting or fostering, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet GOTTI JONATHAN! Gotti is good with dogs, cats, and kids. He loves them all (even babies). This happy-go-lucky guy loves a game of fetch, and when you say "last time,” he knows that will be the last throw. He heads right for the back door to wait for you to lead him in. He loves his "binky" (Kong) and likes to carry it with him or have it close by. Gotti is super sweet and does well when left unattended in the home. He does okay in a crate/kennel but prefers not to be in one when he doesn’t need to be. Who could blame him? He wants to be with his people and animal friends. He can guard his stuff from other dogs, so it is best to feed separately, and I would wager play with his binky separately as well. Gotti walks very well on leash and makes an excellent jogging partner! If interested in adopting or fostering, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet HANNA CORINNE! Hanna is a very playful and loving little lady. She loves walks in her backpack and does very well on leash. She is house and crate trained and good with other dogs but unknown with cats. Hanna is high energy and can be a little too much for the smaller kids, as she tends to get a little mouthy when she gets excited in play, but she settles quickly when you let her know she is getting carried away. She loves belly rubs and will easily get her nails clipped while getting her belly rubbed! If interested in adopting or fostering Hanna, email at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

In foster-to-adopt home.

Meet HUEY!! You may remember this cutie patootie. He was originally seized by animal control after his family, who had neglected and abused him, treating him so much like a lawn ornament, left him chained in the yard when they moved away. Huey has been doing just wonderfully here at rescue! He is one of our RADAR dogs and has been through his heartworm treatment thanks to them! Huey is also deaf. We've been working with him on not being so mouthy when he interacts with people, as well as trusting us that he won't be hurt when he comes to us. He has made such wonderful progress and actually now approaches you to be loved on and to get treats!! He has been doing very well with his dog interactions but in unknown with cats. We are so happy Huey is learning to "dog!” While we work with Huey on his mouthing, he is currently only available to foster (we will consider adoption to a family experienced and understanding of the work they will need to continue with him and/or a foster to adopt situation under the same pretense). If interested in adopting or fostering, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com. Please also keep in mind that Huey is deaf, so working with him is a little different! A contractual agreement of working with our behavior consultant for a minimum of 5 visits will be required.

Meet ISABELLA DAWN! This happy cutie pie doesn’t even let the incoming storm clouds mess up her day! She just wants to make sure she gets plenty of play time and fun! Isabella is an active gal that would make a great fitness partner for those that like to walk and/or run. She also likes to burn up her energy by playing in the yard, and she is okay with doing most of the running around! Can you say zoomies? Isabella has been very good with kids but can be a little too energetic for some of the younger ones, she gets along with cats with slow and proper introductions, and is selective with other dogs, definitely needing an adjustment period with them longer than most, so she would need someone very patient with her if she went to a home with another dog. She is EXCELLENT in the house when left alone while you are at work and is also crate trained. If interested in fostering or adopting Isabella, please email us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet Jackson Duke! Jackson found his way into our rescue after he had spent most of his life outside being ignored because he was "too much" for the family that had him, and they surrendered him to a shelter. Jackson was heartworm positive, but thanks to the help of RADAR, he completed his treatment shortly after coming into rescue and has been heartworm negative since! Jackson is a super sweet boy! He is also very well behaved! He has done well with other dogs here and has never had an issue with the kids he has been around when we are out and about. Jackson does well in a crate and in the house. He loves to be loved and is perfectly content getting snuggles and pet on even when he's outside in the yard with you. If interested in adopting or fostering, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

JOCELYN Reba!! This sweet little lady loves her snuggles, takes treats gently, and likes to play just enough to say she did. She walks great on leash and loves all people. She can be a little dog selective, but mostly, she just needs a good amount of time to adjust and get accustomed to the higher energy type dogs. Jocelyn does a little prancy dance when she gets excited and likes to wiggle her way right into snuggling up to you when she does it too! She is good in her crate and when left to have free reign of the house. If interested in adopting or fostering, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Lila Bean is around 10 years old. She is crate trained and house trained. She walks very well on leash and knows all sorts of tricks/commands. She is even good with basic agility! While she is very mild mannered around other dogs on leash, because Lila was extremely abused, she is still learning what it means to play with other dogs (it took her over a year to learn to play with me at all ), and she would be best suited in a home with no other dogs at this time. She loves kids and all people, but she would do best in a home with older children due to her nervousness of people playing. Lila does not understand there is no danger and becomes very nervous and uncomfortable around people wrestling/playing. She has never been cat tested, so I am unsure about cats but can say when we see cats, squirrels, rabbits, birds, etc. on our walks, she shows no interest in them. She is as sweet as can be and would love a home to call her very own. If interested in fostering or adopting Lila Bean, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

MEET MADISON EVA! This little bitty lady is as bubbly as they come! Madison is very sweet and loving, and she loves to play a combination of fetch and tug. Madison needs a patient person. She was not treated very well by her previous owners and can scare easily. Because of this, she does nervous pee during those times. She is good in her crate but would need some work with house training her. She is good in the house as far as not chewing on things but does have the occasional accident when left out on her own in the house. She is perfectly content snuggled up to you while on the couch and will insist on being close enough to be touching. For all her energy, she does rather well on leash and listens very well. Madison can be nervous around dogs she doesn’t know and tends to be selective about the ones she likes but she has come a long way since we first rescued her. Even though she can tolerate others on leash and in passing, Madison needs to be the only pet in the home. She loves kids of all ages! :) To adopt or foster Madison please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet MARLEY MAE! Our little munchkin loves to play ball and even likes to mix it up and play catch with a rope toy or enjoy some tug o' war in between the running around. Marley is a super sweet little lady who knows her basic training and is house and crate trained. She is good with kids but unknown with cats. Marley tends to be dog selective and would really enjoy having you all to herself. She would give you plenty of unconditional love and fun. If interested in adopting or fostering, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet MARYANNE ELISE!! This little lady isn't letting the grey skies bum her out! She had a blast with her play time and checks in pretty regularly to get some loving in between her victory laps after getting her toy.:) Maryanne is a wiggly package of goofball love. She is eager to learn, and we are working on teaching her basic training commands. She does very well in her crate and in the house; she just needs someone to be patient with her while she learns her basics, as she has never had any real attention or love before ending up at the shelter and then being rescued, so she is starting from puppy square one at her age, but she is coming along nicely! :) Maryanne is available to foster or adopt. If interested in adopting or fostering, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Mason Timothy

This dog is not currently available. Meet Mason Timothy! Mason is the cutest boy! Don't let his size fool you–he is a big baby and has the "little" bark to prove it! :) Mason found himself at a shelter, like Garrett, being very thin and in need of a lot of vetting to get him healthy! He is a happy, healthy boy now and is learning that he will be able to get (and eat) his food and treats every day and that no one is going to take them from him and leave him to go hungry. He has come a long way since we rescued him but still can guard his food (mostly it is just high value treats now like his peanut butter), so we are continuing to work with Mason before we will allow him to be adopted. He has never been aggressive or mean when he guards his food; he just doesn't want you taking it. We also respect Mason's boundaries and believe that is why he has come so far in this issue. Mason also needs to be neutered prior to any adoption, and we would be sure to get him in for that. Mason is a bit "pulley" on leash and can be a little hand shy at times, but he is a super loving boy and he even has a wonderful playful side. He does very well in his crate and needs time to adjust in the house. If interested in adopting or fostering, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet Maxwell Dennis! We worked very,very, very hard with things to figure out a solution for this baby boy. With his dad going through his chemo treatments, he wasn't really able to interact with him because the slightest scratch, nibble, etc. from this 80 pound (maybe more) love bug was really tearing him up. We also found out that his dad rescued him from a pretty abusive situation, and his first year of life was full of being mistreated and abused because he wasn't fighting other dogs for food. He has been a loved, happy boy for the last 3, almost 4 years, and at almost 5 years old, you can see the love between them. There was also a teacup chihuahua there (his daughter’s dog), and Max was super sweet with him. He is known to be good with other dogs of all sizes, and it doesn't seem to matter if they are male or female. He also has done very well with kids of all ages (babies and up). Cats are an unknown, but as loving and docile as he is, he may not have any issues with them either! We, of course, can test that when/if we need to. He has been doing very well getting used to the house and loved exploring the yard. He has a fun, playful side and is very gentle with his mouth while playing. He picked up one of the rope knot balls that he seemed to take on as his favorite toy so far. He walks well on leash, does well in the car, and knows sit. He takes treats super gently and waits patiently for his food. We will keep you posted on his progress. He needs to be neutered and fully vetted. We do have his rabies vaccine records, so that is all set. If interested in adopting or fostering, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet Nala Rose! This adorable girl is a little bitty thing at maybe 35 pounds! We don't know much about her past, but we know she can be a little hand shy at first and had been let down by humans the first time she was adopted from the shelter, as she was returned within 24 hours for supposedly not getting along with the other dogs (yes multiple dogs) that she was just thrown into the mix with! Nala has been doing great with her dog interactions since she has been here at the rescue, and we respect her need to have some time and space to meet new doggie friends. She does wonderfully with children of all ages and does well in her crate and in the house, but an adjustment period for her in the house will definitely need to be understood. Nala has a bouncy, playful side, but she is super sweet and loves her snuggles too. She’s around 2 years old, so she still has quite a bit of puppy in her too. If interested in adopting or fostering, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet Neptune Levi! NEPTUNE!!! Neptune is one of our RADAR dogs and has been through his heartworm treatment and is now heartworm negative! We rescued this boy last year just in time to save him from a hurricane at a shelter that has outside kennels only after he was left behind by the rescue transport that took all the other dogs except for him! Neptune is a fun-loving guy, but he is a whole lot of "puppy" energy. We are working on establishing better manners, and he has come a long way, but he still can be quite unrefined at times. We love him and his goofball antics! If interested in adopting or fostering, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet NIGEL HARRISON!! We rescued this cutie patootie when the rescue he was with decided he had been with them too long, and they were going to put him down. From what we were told, he was in foster and the same decision had been made. A volunteer group stepped up and found him an adopter. The adopter decided she didn't want him anymore (apparently you can't teach a mostly deaf dog sign language, and she was disappointed that he wasn't totally deaf). Once again he was at risk of being put down since his rescue didn't want him back. They were once again scheduling him for euthanization. The volunteer group that thought they had saved him once before sent us an urgent plea for his life...and we answered. Nigel is super sweet and is a very young 7 years old! Nigel is hard of hearing but not deaf, and he is learning sign language regardless and is very well behaved! He also has food allergies so must be kept away from chicken or beef. His skin is very sensitive, and in the summer, he may break out in a hot spot and needs to get baths with a shampoo that is good for his skin (something with neem or tea tree oil in it...or even with ketoconazole). He can be a bit mouthy when he plays or tries to get your attention, so older children are recommended. He does well in his crate and has done very well in the house especially considering he had lived a good portion of his life outside only. This guy loves his peanut butter and loves his kisses! Nigel is available to foster or adopt. He has done well with other dogs he has Interacted with here. If interested in adopting or fostering this super sweet, handsome guy please email us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com or fill out an application via our website at dogsofdestiny.com.

SAY HELLO TO PEANUT BEAUREGARD!! We rescued this guy from the Isle of Wight animal shelter after a very long stay of 537 days for him there! Peanut is super sweet and very friendly—he just takes a while to really come out of his shell! He will need someone who understands that he needs some time to really get used to you and let his personality shine through. He absolutely adores kids. He has either not been treated kindly or was never really shown love, so he isn’t sure what is going on at first until he gets to know you. He LOVES the water and LOVES to play with his ball (anyone who fosters or adopts this guy will be taking his ball with him It is his favorite toy and really the only one he pays attention to)! While we have been getting him comfortable here, he has shown no concerning behaviors when he has passed by the other dogs (even if they are barking) and has been very well behaved through baby gate interactions he has had with other dogs. Peanut is very good in the house when left to have free reign and does well in his crate. He knows basic commands, and while he can be a little pulley on walks, he listens well and settles into a decent pace. He also makes an excellent jogging/running partner. He can be very interested and pull toward other dogs he sees when out on walks, so that is something to be mindful of.

Meet Petunia Justice, our little speed racer and inspiration!! She is a 4-year-old female chihuahua mix. Don’t let her wheelchair fool you. This young lady is anything but special needs! She LOVES being in her wheelchair, which was sponsored for us by RADAR! She is good with kids (from babies up), dogs, and great with cats! Before Petunia was dumped by a riverbed, she was very seriously abused—so much so, in fact, that we initially thought she would be fully paralyzed in her hind legs, but as the swelling went down along her spine, she gained some movement. She can get up and walking (a little wobbly) for brief amounts of time when not in her wheelchair, but she loves running around and playing, so when she is out, we like to have her in it! Because of her condition, Petunia doesn’t really have control of when she goes potty, so she would need someone understanding to realize she will have accidents in her crate, but they are less frequent when she gets into a routine. In order to go pee, she does need help, so expelling her bladder will be necessary to ensure she is fully eliminating and prevent her from getting UTIs. At 4 years old, Petunia knows way more about living happy and not letting the bad get you down than anyone we know! She is an inspiration. She is available to foster or adopt!

Meet Tabitha Christine! Tabitha is a sweet little pint sized gal that ended up dumped in a high kill shelter because her owner was unable to make money off of her since she wasn't getting pregnant from their attempts at breeding her. That's fine by us! Tabitha is a sweet, playful gal who loves to hang out with her people. She has also done well around other dogs. Tabitha can be overwhelmed at big events/crowds and/or just with a lot of commotion going on, so she would do best in a home with older children but has done well with children of all ages during our outings. If interested in adopting or fostering, please contact us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet Toby Greyson! This big boy is one of the wiggliest of the wiggle butts that we know! Toby needs to be neutered prior to adoption or foster, but he has just completed his heartworm treatment, so we are also making sure he is healthy enough to be neutered before we schedule for him! We don’t know much about his past, as he was picked up as a stray, and no one ever came for him, but Toby has been the perfect houseguest since coming to the rescue. He does very well both in the house and in his crate and is very gentle when taking treats. He likes to stay close to his person when out back and loves to run around for short bursts of play time. He loves cheese and takes his treats very gently while doing a little prancy tap dance! The closer you get with his treats, the faster his tail wags! Toby is available for foster or adoption. He is unknown with cats and has done very well with the dog interactions he has had since being with us at the rescue. If interested in giving Toby a loving home, email at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.

Meet Winston Frederick! Don’t let his 8-year-old and greying face fool you—this old man has plenty of spunk in him still! Winston loves playing with the water from the hose and will give a cat a good chase, so NO CATS for him! He does very well with other dogs and is currently being fostered with two! One about the same size as him and another small dog. He has been the perfect house guest and has had no accidents while in his foster home and even lets his foster mom know when he needs to go out. He has been neutered and is ready for his forever home! He takes medications well when hidden in food (he was on an antibiotic following his neuter--that’s how we know)! He also LOVES to be around kids! If interested in adopting or fostering this distinguished gentleman, please email us at destiny@dogsofdestiny.com for more info or fill out an application at dogsofdestiny.com.
