High Drive Dogs Seeking New Homes

IMPORTANT NOTE: Canine Higher Learning's HD Dogs is NOT a rescue organization, but simply a matchmaking service. The dogs listed on these pages are all being fostered or sheltered in various locations, by various rescue organizations, and have been evaluated by them. Canine Higher Learning and its partners do not make any guarantees or assurances with regard to the temperament or aptitude of any of the dogs listed. Please use your due diligence when decided to adopt any dog, including doing background research on the breed, and asking as many questions as possible about the individual dog. In addition, as with any internet listing site, please practice safe meeting protocols. While "dog people" may generally be nicer than the average person, dangerous people and "rip-off" artists still exist, so be sure to protect yourself.

Scamp could be your next Flyball height dog! He loves toys and will also work for food. Scamp gets along great with other dogs and is also okay with cats. He is playful and feisty. He was initially terrified of people when he was pulled from the pound, but gets better each day in his foster home. His new family should realize that he will need continued work on handling. For this reason, he needs to go to a home without small children. Scamp is crate trained and is working on housetraining (about 90% there). He loves to snuggle once he's become comfortable with a person. He recently attended a dog show and did great in that busy environment, napping in his crate. He is neutered, current on shots, microchipped, heartworm negative, and ready to go home!

Scamp is being fostered Rochester, Minnesota. Please contact Sara at sara@paws4u.com.

Solo is playful and sweet and good with people and dogs. She loves sitting on laps and snuggling at night. When first rescued, Solo had a badly injured eye that needed to be removed. She has adapted well and has no problems related to having only one eye. Solo has attended beginner dog obedience class and has been learning Flyball. She loves to tug and has a solid recall. We would love to find Solo a flyball home; she has great potential as a height dog.

If you're interested in pictures of Solo or need more information feel free to email StephAlvord@yahoo.com and requests can be forwarded to her foster mom.

Solo is being fostered in Clovis, California.

Sierra is very eager to please. She is bright, quick, and energetic. She learns tricks quickly with little training and learned to retrieve a ball within 10 minutes using only praise and play as a motivator. She is crate trained and house trained. We are re-homing her because our young twins were not a good fit for her. Sierra would do best in a home with adults or mature children 10 yrs or older who like to play and interact with her. With her eagerness to play, she could be a wonderful Flyball height dog.

Sierra is being fostered in San Jose, California. Please contact Casaundra Cruz at 408-262-2133 ext. 183.

Dougal is a high-energy, active, fun-seeking puppy that we rescued from the SPCA a few months ago. He is quick to learn, boisterous, full of life and inquisitive. He can jump like you're on a pogo stick, he can run like the wind. He's not afraid of anything and has a high drive for problem solving. And he loves attention and is very very cute. He'd be a perfect dog for agility, flyball or frisbee, if anyone is willing to dedicated the time to train.

Dougal is being fostered in Vacaville, California. Please contact Susanne at Susannedryer@yahoo.com or 530-902-5080.

Archer is a playful little fella with the biggest and best doggy smile! He loves people and will jump into your arms if you let him. He's an active and intelligent little guy and would be awesome in training classes. Typical of high-drive dogs, he does get bored pretty easily, so training will really help keep his mind busy! He'd like to live with someone who can give him plenty of exercise and playtime. He absolutely loves to run for the sheer joy of it! He is currently in a multi-dog foster home and is the life of the party! If you're looking for a happy little dog to jog with and keep you company, please call Casaundra @ (408) 262-2133 ext. 183 or Jeri @ ext. 185. He is available for adoption at the Humane Society Silicon Valley in Milpitas, CA.
