Multiple Breed Rescue




Tanner is available for adoption from Multiple Breed Rescue.



Cute little Tanner was born deaf but don’t let that worry you because he is living life to the fullest. He is cratetrained and mostly housetrained. He was spoiled by his previous owner and wasn’t really taught proper manners. So his foster home is working with him to become a perfect gentleman by not jumping on people or barking for attention. Since he cannot hear, the use of a training E-collar has helped him understand right from wrong. And he is doing good learning and understanding nonverbal hand commands as well. Tanner is sweet and has become a great cuddler. He is fine around other dogs and cats, too. He would do best in a home that will be consistent with him and continue his training. Just remember he is deaf, so we are asking that a potential adopter have a fenced-in backyard and if you have children, that they be over 8 years old. We also do not recommend a condo, apartment or townhome where you share a wall with your neighbor. For a deaf dog, he has a pretty loud bark (but he doesn’t know it).


SEX: Male

NEUTERED/SPAYED: Yes, neutered; shots current

AGE: 1 year




Macey is available for adoption from Multiple Breed Rescue.



Miss Macey was adopted a few years ago from MBR. She and her sister didn’t always see eye to eye (no pun intended). Her family is moving across the country and felt the stress of the move, Macey and her fur sister not always getting along, their support group and trainer being here in Ohio, and the fact babies make Macey nervous (the family is moving to be closer to grandkids); it was best for Macey to find a new home. We would like to see Macey as an only dog with her new family. She is not dog aggressive but isn’t good about sharing her space with other pets and will growl at another dog that is in her face or space. We feel for Macey’s happiness, she should be an only dog. Macey’s current foster family says “she is perfect. She walks nice on a leash, even when passing other dogs. She is housetrained, cratetrained and very loving!” When we originally pulled her from the shelter years ago, she was missing her eye then, so we have no idea what happened. It certainly does not affect her quality of life.

Wally is available for adoption from Multiple Breed Rescue.



Wally would love a family with a fenced-in back yard or a rural home with acreage (he is off-leash trained), another dog he can play with, and humans that are often active with their furry kids. Wally is a great dog but misunderstood. He needs an owner who has experience with the Terrier/herding breed. Wally is housetrained, good with kids and other dogs. However, in a group or pack of dogs, he has been known to try to herd them which sometimes does not go over too well. There are three cats in Wally’s foster home, and he is doing great with them. You can even find them cuddling on occasion.

Sometimes Wally is bored. He has been bounced around from home to home unable to find his place in this world. He is fine for a few weeks in a house but then after the newness wears off and the family stops paying him as much attention as they did when they first brought him home, Wally gets bored and ends up doing what cattle dogs do; finding something to keep himself feeling important.

As stated earlier, Wally is a great dog. We are requiring a homeowner with a fenced yard ore a rural home with lots of acres to run and a commitment to do something with him other than take a few walks. Another dog for Wally to play with would be great. And he needs something to do like hiking, biking, running or agility. This is not because he is a high-energy dog. This is because his brain needs something to do, and he needs to feel he serves a purpose. And this is what will make him the happiest.
