Brownie is an adorable, intelligent, happy, little sweetie. Her foster mom reports that "She loves to be close and give affection. She comes when you call, a quick learner, and is obedient. She has no bad habits, except she loves attention and likes to eat too much. She needs to lose a few pounds. She is a little shy with strangers. However, once she spends a little time with someone, she is in love. She adjusted to my schedule quickly. We are up at 6 and out the back door for some yard time. She eats twice a day. In the morning around 8:00AM she eats breakfast and we walk until she potties. Around 4:00PM, she eats dinner and we walk again. She is house trained. She is not a high energy dog and plays well with my 10 year old granddaughter. She is not food aggressive, or dog aggressive. She responds best to calm assertive humans. She will make anyone a great friend." You must be over 21 with good vet history and a fenced yard for adoption.

  • Special NeedsPrefers home without small kids
***SPECIAL NEEDS***Sadie, formerly known as Say Say, was adopted from Yelp known to be snappy but her new mom lived alone and had no children and wanted to rescue a pup that needed her help. Sadie was happy with her Mama for a few years but, unfortunately, her owner passed away just before Christmas 2016. We were fortunate to have another patient and compassionate foster willing to take her in and she has fared as well as could be expected with all this little pup has been through in her life. Naturally they have to be very careful with her, keeping her separated from their young grandson and other 'strangers' who may come to visit. Sadie is very sweet when she learns to trust her human and is available for adoption to a home with someone who is willing to provide her with the safe and secure environment she needs. No small children and a stay at home or work from home person would likely be best considering her anxiety issues. If you have a heart for and have experience with the special needs, Sadie is a 7 yr old female Malti-poo, 12 lbs., spayed, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccines, and heartworm negative.

  • Chihuahua

Meet SuzyQ, a lovely tricolor Chihuahua!! A former breeder, Miss SuzyQ is now retired and hoping to finally have a real home, one where her sole reason for being is to love and be loved. She is a friendly little dog, a bit timid but wanting so much to be petted. Miss S is about 9 years young, spayed, heartworm negative, and a tad on the plump side. (She's weighing in at 8.5 pounds and should weigh about 7-7.5 pounds.). She's fully vaccinated, on heartworm and flea prevention, and microchipped. Miss S has a perky upbeat manner, and is even pretty good about outside potty, especially considering she has lived most of her life in a kennel. Although she is sturdier than some chi's, she is still too small for children to handle, especially given her limited socialization in a family setting. She is currently in a foster home with numerous dogs and cats. SuzyQ is great with all dogs and would chase a cat, if she could only get it to stop laughing and run.

Marley is a 1 yr old female Great Pyrenees, 66 lbs., spayed, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccines, and heartworm negative. Very sweet but is a total ESCAPE ARTIST! We believe she has some separation anxiety but she is young and can improve with time, patience, reassurance, and possibly medication! A tall fenced yard, at least 8 ft. wooden fence, will be required. Knowledge of the breed is important for anyone interested. Best fit for Marley is a stay-at-home/work-from-home owner. Aside from her mischevious ways, Marley is a happy, loving, wannabe lapdog. Adoption Fee $200. Email info@yelpbr.com for an application and appointment to meet her in person.

  • Chihuahua, Dachshund

TAKE A CHANCE ON CHANCE!! Sweet, shy, sensitive one year old, neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and heartworm negative. Chance is a young string bean of a dog. A tall drink of water in a 13 pound package. (Truth is, we suspect he is part mountain goat and part cat.) Chance was one of 7 dogs taken to a local kill shelter by a breeder of small crossed breeds because they didn't sell. Ostensibly, he's a chiweenie but we sure don't see it. As with many dogs from puppy mills, Chance came to us with no experience living outside a kennel. He's come a LONG way since joining the Yelp family. Unfortunately, Chance is still fearful of strangers so he doesn't show well at our adoption events where he tends to hide behind his foster mom. He is an affectionate, sensitive soul who desperately needs a patient human to give him a chance. He does very well in his foster home, getting along with a variety of dogs and cats. At night, he sleeps curled up like a cat in the curve of his foster's back. He is hesitant, but welcoming, to other humans he recognizes and is learning that new people can often mean more treats. Chance will probably never do well in a household with children. He needs one or two adults and a measure of quiet. He is pretty much through the chewing stage, although he will occasionally walk off with a piece of cardboard or newspaper. He is left loose in the house nowadays with only a very occasional mistake. He can be kenneled, although given that his first 9 months were spent caged, we prefer his kennel time be minimal. His foster mom says he bonded with her in a matter of days and is very attentive and loving. We believe the right person would bond well with him in a matter of days. If you are looking for that dog who will make you feel special and return your love full measure with only a wee bit of patience on your part, please give Chance a chance.

  • Cattle Dog

  • Prefers home without small kids
Trapper is a young male Australian Cattle Dog, 40 lbs., DOB 9/02/15, neutered, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm negative. Trapper is a working breed dog and needs a fenced yard and other active dogs to keep him busy. Best fit would be an owner knowledgable and experienced with the breed, active, no small children. Please note that the most important traits of this breed are their high intelligence, a strong need for activity, and a devotion to their owners. This breed is a herding animal and herds by nipping at the heels of cattle. For this reason, this is not a good breed for families with very young children. Trapper himself is very soft mouthed, but does like to encourage you along by grabbing at your feet and when fearful or stressed will gently put his mouth around your arm or hand for comfort. When he first came to us, it was obvious he had never been inside a house or played with a toy. He's handling all the newness very well and has a soft latex squeaky that he gently chews on when needing reassurance. If you are looking for an active, intelligent, loyal companion then Trapper may be the perfect dog for you. Please email us at info@yelpbr.com for an application to meet Trapper.

Hi, I'm Daisy. Up until a little over a month ago I was at the Yelp house for almost 3 years. Then, one day I was suddenly adopted! I had finally found someone who loved me and welcomed me into his house. I was the "Queen of the House," as he put it. I was the only dog, and I had full reign of the toys and of his affection. But, a few weeks ago, this great flood came through the city and ruined our house. The new life I had was…just gone. I had been so happy, especially because I was the only dog in the house; he was all mine and I was all his. So, I'm in a foster home now, and I understand it wasn't because he didn't love me. The circumstances have been beyond anyone's control. I have to admit, I'm a bit selfish when it comes to loving an owner; so I typically don't like to share them with another dog. So if that sounds like something you're OK with, would you consider giving me, Daisy, a chance? I may have lost my house, but my home is where I can love someone and they can love me. I know it's out there. I've waited for 3 years to find it, so I can wait a little while longer. Please email info@yelpbr.com if you can provide Daisy with the loving forever home she so deserves!

CURRENTLY IN A FOSTER HOME. KAYO, a 4.5 year old male Boxer Mix, 64 lbs, neutered, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccines and heartworm negative. He is quite athletic and strong, maybe too much for small children. Is currently in obedience training. He will make a GREAT companion dog for the right home. He can be intimidating because of his tough guy look but he thinks he's a lapdog----just takes a little while to warm up! House and crate-trained. Affectionate with humans and good with other dogs.

  • Special Needs
Currently in Foster Care. Velvet is AVAILABLE!!! Velvet, in foster care, is a nervous dog, but is very sweet at the same time. Although she is nervous she has never shown aggression to us or any of the dogs here. When she is in her run she circles her house over and over, and people are turned off by that. Out in the yard and even on a leash, she is completely different. She walks fine on a leash and loves to be petted. We think Velvet would be great if she could just find a person/family that would be patient with her. Some dogs thrive in this environment and others get worse. Unfortunately I think Velvet is one who has only gotten worse while being here. 🙁 We really believe she will make an awesome addition to someone's family if they would just give her a chance. Velvet, a shepherd mix, is 4 yrs. old, 42 lbs., spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, and heartworm negative. We have had Velvet since August 2012, so it is definitely time for her to have her very own family! Adoption Fee $150. Please contact us at info@yelpbr.com or call 225-485-9200 to schedule your appointment to meet the dogs in person. Thank you for sharing this pet.
