12 Adoptable Pups of Xmas Update!

January 27, 2021

Last month, we shared with you 12 great pups who needed a little help finding their forever home.  From all over the nation, they are amazing dogs who have been at the rescue longer than their peers.

Today, we wanted to share an update: Because of your help getting the word out, seven of these wonderful pups have been adopted.  Lincoln, Bucky, Lexi, Fireball, Ladybug, Annie and Mavis are all in their new homes. To celebrate these pups finding their forever homes, Grounds & Hounds covered the adoption fees for each of them.

We’ll also be covering the adoption fees for the dogs that are still looking for their forever family. There’s Maple, Rufus, Chuck, Tiny Tim and Penny who need to find their new homes. Let’s spread the word and get these last 5 pups home for a belated happy holiday.  Here’s a little more about each remaining pup.


There’s Maple from OC Pom Rescue, the adorable senior pup who loves being outdoors.

She is leash, crate-trained, and potty-trained. Hanging in her foster mom's backyard is her favorite pastime. She does a happy dance for food and has the cutest permanently-raised bat ears. Maple isn't a huge cuddler, but she’d do great in a loving and understanding home with a touch of discipline for her sunset years!

Rufus from Washington State, who has a favorite rock he likes to carry in his mouth.  Besides his rock, Rufus loves chasing squirrels.  He is a big lover and fairly mellow but will gladly play fetch with you for as long as you want. Rufus would do best in a home with older kids. He can get along with other dogs, but his opinion about cats is unknown.

Chuck from Heartland Animal Rescue in Illinois gets really excited about car rides.  His fosters say he is goofy and sweet.  A Plott Hound mix who is about 9.5 years old, Chuck is very treat motivated and a sucker for good neck scratches. Despite having hip dysplasia, he is a normal, energetic dog and loves people. However, he needs a home without kids, cats or other dogs. In the right home, this handsome guy will be the center of attention!

Tiny Tim from It’s a Pittie Rescue has overcome a fractured spine to become a snuggle bug.  He is a happy and fun pup who loves playing with the other dogs at his foster home.  Tiny Tim also enjoys playing with his toys, taking walks in his wheelchair and snuggling on the couch. If you’ve got the patience to work with Tiny Tim’s wheelchair, he’ll give you the same love as any other pup.

Penny from Stand Up Pups loves sweet potato treats and smiles in her sleep. She is a young pit/lab mix who loves to be loved, and enjoys cozy blankets.  She can also be very playful, a pup who loves her toys.  Penny is currently undergoing treatments for heart worm, but is a fighter and should recover well. She is also guaranteed to make her forever family very, very happy.
