The dogs listed in this section are in, or waiting for, foster care and are not yet available. If you're willing to wait, or to foster, you may still complete an adoption application to be considered as a candidate.
Journey, at little more than a year old, loves to play! As much as he loves running and wrestling with his foster siblings though, this guy loves to sit on your lap as long as you remember your "job" is to pet him and tell him what a great dog he is. Journey is curious about the world and is happy to keep himself busy exploring. He is very well behaved.
Journey walks well on a leash. He is basically housetrained though he will need consistency when he makes his transition to his forever home. That home must have another dog for him to play with unless he's adopted with Cody, the dog with whom he came to HRI. He and Cody are bonded so it is preferable that the boys go home together.

Calming Canine Music
The creators of the Through A Dog’s Ear series have collaborated with Victoria Stilwell, star of Animal Planet’s It’s Me or the Dog, and developed the new Canine Noise Phobia Series
Does your dog suffer from a fear of thunderstorms? Does his anxiety level increase when the storm clouds roll in? Thunderstorm phobia is a very common condition among dogs all over the world. The terror that results can be an incredibly distressing, debilitating problem not only for dogs, but also for their owners who feel powerless to help. This groundbreaking desensitization tool will teach your dog to associate positive feelings with thunderstorms rather than feeling fearful, and will help to gradually reduce your dog’s fear when exposed to these sounds. When used properly and implemented in conjunction with the behavioral modification protocols included in the CD liner notes, you have an excellent chance of rehabilitating your thunder-phobic dog and preventing thunder-phobia from ever developing in younger dogs.
