BETSY

Beautiful Betsy is an 8 year old American Bulldog that is deserving of a new forever home. Betsy's owner was a deaf senior and she became too much for him to handle. Prior to coming to Friendship Betsy was not socialized with strangers and never left the comfort of her home. She took some time to adjust to kennel life and to realize new people weren't so bad. She then became ill (pneumonia) and struggled to recover. She has since recovered and learned to trust. Sunday was the first time any one at FAPL had seen her play since arriving and it was adorable. Now that she has opened up she loves to frolic, even putting the toy on your to play. Stop by Friendship and ask to meet with Betsy if you have room in your heart for a big hearted senior!

ANDY & BUDDY

Andy is a 2 year old Smooth Collie mix & Buddy (his dad) is a 5 year old Cattle Dog. Both were saved from euthanasia after being used for breeding at an Amish puppy mill. Puppy mill dogs require extra love and patience, since they have never had the opportunity of living in a loving home. They need lots of practice with socialization and basic training, including house training. Many puppy mill dogs have turned out to be fantastic pets, when given the time and opportunity to learn how to be "normal" dogs. Andy and Buddy do NOT have to be adopted together.

ROCKY

**Rocky was unfortunately adopted and returned due to getting into a tiff with the other dog in the home. While Rocky seems to co-exist just fine around dogs and does not seem reactive to them in public, he should go to a home without another dog so he can be the center of attention.

Rocky lives up to his name and then some! He was a victim in a humane case, then unfortunately had to be surrendered to us due to loss of housing. He is so happy and friendly, and loves children of all ages. This 5 year old loves to cuddle, sleep in bed with you, and was BFFs with a cat. He's very athletic and would enjoy exercising with you. Rocky is a smart boy who knows many cues like sit, come and high five. A wise man once said; "It ain't about how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and move forward." Come to Friendship APL to meet Rocky so he can be your champ!

MOLLY

Molly is a cute 4 year old with a beautiful silvery blue coat. She arrived from another rescue so not much is known about her. She is a wonderful girl that prefers to be the ONLY pet in the home. Molly is calm, gentle and loving in a quiet environment. She really doesn't show well in her kennel with all the noise and commotion around her. Take her in an adoption room, spend some time with her and you will fall in love. She's great on a leash and loves to play fetch outside too! A volunteer's view..."Beautiful 4 year old Molly gets passed on by day after day. She adores the attention of people. She loves belly rubs and playing fetch. Molly would just love to curl up with you on the couch on a cold winter day. She is absolutely a favorite of many volunteers and she is waiting for you at Friendship APL in Elyria. Molly needs to be the only pet in the home, but her love and companionship is all you will need. Molly at Friendship Animal Protective League."

FOXY

Let's not let Foxy spend Christmas in a shelter. She was surrendered to Friendship APL on December 28, 2017 from a home where she had very little socialization. She is now the cat who has been at the shelter the longest. Foxy has worked hard this year to adjust to people. It was a big change for her being 10 years old and just learning to interact now. I volunteer doing the FAPL cat website and when I open the door and sit on the floor of Foxy's room she immediately comes to me, climbs on my lap and looks at me with those eyes. Those eyes seem to plead for someone to love her. I sure do and if there weren't other pets in my home she would be here in a minute. Foxy would do best in an adult home as an only pet or if there is another cat in the home to be introduced little by little. She might do just fine and one thing is for sure. Foxy would be so much happier in a home where she had her space and time to adjust. Can you be Foxy's hero and give her the life that she deserves? ​
