Looking for a home to spend the rest of my life!
My name is Belle, but I also go by Belly and Biscuit. I am looking for my forever home and family.

I will be 10 years old in April and really would love to have a home to spend the rest of my life.

Is that you?

Despite how these frigid mornings have felt, Spring is here and that means Spring Cleaning. The AKC put out a great article on Spring Cleaning To-Do's for pet owners. You can view the original article at AKC.org.
This year, while you’re airing bedding, flinging open the windows, mopping the floors, and dusting everything in sight, don’t forget to include your dog’s living space too. It’s important to take a yearly audit of your pet’s supplies and sanitize any items such as toys that may be used often.

Make your annual cleaning ritual pup-friendly by adding these dog-specific tasks to your checklist. Remember to always use pet-safe cleaning products!

#1: Pick Up Your Yard
If you live in a colder climate, you likely already know why you need to clean your yard. When the snow melts, it reveals everything you neglected to pick up during the colder months, including your dog’s droppings.

When the warm weather hits, your pup will want to indulge in the sunshine, so make sure your yard is a safe place for them to hang out and play. Along with picking up your dog’s poop, walk around your yard and pick up sticks, stones, branches, or anything else your dog may try to play with and chew.

#2: Refresh Your Kitchen
Annual cleaning isn’t complete until you give your kitchen a good deep clean—and that includes your dog’s supplies as well. When did you last clean or replace your dog’s food dish or water bowl? You don’t need to replace bowls regularly, but consider purchasing new dishes if the bowls have been chewed or are too dirty to save.

You should clean your dog’s bowls out at least every day, but it is always a good idea to give them a deep cleaning every so often. If your dog has a rug or mat under their dishes, clean that too.

#3: Check Expiration Dates
Make sure to check your puppy’s food, treats, and medications, and dispose of anything that’s expired.

#4: Get Rid of Dog Hair
If your dog sheds often, you know that stray strands and dander are among the biggest house-cleaning challenges. You’ll want to go over every corner and surface of your house with a pet hair vacuum.

Take preparatory steps to improve your chances of making a clean sweep. On carpets and upholstery, for example, a light misting with water and fabric softener followed by a once-over with a stiff-bristled brush can loosen and pull up embedded hairs. You can also go over surfaces with a lint roller, pet-hair remover, or other hair-grabber after vacuuming. Once all your surfaces are free of pet hair, go over your fabrics and carpets with a fabric spray to finish the job.

#5: Clean and Discard Old Toys
Decluttering is a crucial part of any cleaning. Along with organizing your closet, take a look at your dog’s toy basket. If the toys are dirty, give them a good clean with soap and water (fabric toys can go in the laundry) but toss out any broken or potentially dangerous ones.

Once you’re finished cleaning them, don’t forget to have fun replacing the toys you had to discard.

#6: Wash Bedding, Blankets, & Collars
While you should frequently wash your dog’s bedding and blankets throughout the year, give them an extra-thorough cleaning occasionally. Consider also cleaning the baseboards, carpet, and walls near your pup’s sleeping area, and give all your windows a good polish to wipe away nose and paw prints.

This is also a good time to thoroughly clean crates, carriers, collars, and leashes with a mild soap, like dishwashing detergent, and a highly diluted disinfectant. Many people do a final wipe-down with water, to reduce the chance of pets coming in contact with chemicals.

#7: Don't Forget Grooming
Don’t forget the most important part: keeping your pup clean! Your dog should already have a regular grooming routine, but, after a long winter, their thick coat will begin to shed, which often requires special care. To refresh your grooming knowledge, read our spring grooming tips and invest in safe, quality grooming products.
You should just check out my pics on Facebook – you can see me learning to play Tug of War with my big Dane Sister, Hazel. 

I’m learning so fast, Hazel decided to adopt me! Woo Hoo – what a great place to land for a young fella like me. And Hazel decided to name me Bob.
Wherefore art thou, Romeo? 

Here! I’m headed to my new home where I get to live with this cool family with 3 other dogs. Their dogs are in learning mode, too, so I will fit right in and learn how to be the best dog ever with them!
Oh, Hey. I’m tryin to be all laid back and all when I tell you I’m going to live with a really laid back 3 year old female dog who can teach me a thing or two as I grow up! 

And I will get a human brother and sister in the deal. Hooray!!! 
I mean, cool.
I am so very excited I have found my forever family! 

My new mom grew up with Danes and has been looking for me to be her next special someone. 

I will get to live with a Golden Retriever Service Dog – I bet he will teach me a lot.

Well what about that! I was described as the Perfect Foster Dog and now I am going to a Perfect Forever Home. I am so excited, I can’t wait to meet my new family. 

I will get to live with two other dogs, a cat, and two wonderful kiddos! This is gonna be good, I just know it.

Yayyy! My Foster Mom from the start promised to keep me and now we are making it official. 

I get to stay with her forever and keep building the amazing bond we have made. And she calls me Lilith now.

Oh, just look at Little Cute Me! 

I found a home with a Mastiff and a Kelpie I can play with. I know they will teach me good manners and it is already fun living with them. 

The dogs, Max and Lili Grace, decided to rename me “Pepper”.
Hey! Kane here. I found an amazing family I’ve been living with as a Foster and I decided to keep them. I am considered a Foster Winner. 

I’m the only fur kid in the house and I have two teenagers to play with. Success!!!
BREAKING NEWS:  Dakota Is Headed To His New Home – that is my headline! 

I met this really nice lady who decided I am just what she needs in her life. 

I get to live with her and her adult son, and you better believe there is going to be tons and tons of love going around – especially as I start to grow, tee hee.

Oh, Wowser!

I’m sure gonna miss my Foster home and my sister, but I’m going to an amazing family who fell in love with me when they met me. 

I am going to rock the center of their world!

Oh, Happy Day! 

I’m moving in with an amazing family that adopted from RMGDRI before – and one of my new mom’s is a vet, so I will all the best and personalized care possible. 

I have a sweet Dane sister and a kitty to cuddle with too. They call me Kaia now, Life is Good!
