My name is Bellatrix, but everyone calls me Bella for short. My foster mommy named me Bellatrix because she said I had cast a spell of cuteness upon her, and I am I glad I did! I'm looking for my forever home. Maybe it's with you? I'm a dark brindle pit bull terrier with a dash of white on my nose, my toes, and my belly – I'll probably be a mid-sized pup at most when I grow up all the way. 'm a little shy with new people and situations but once I warm up I'm the life of the party. I get along great with other dogs (I live with two right now), especially if they're into my typical pittie puppy rough and tumble play style. I also live with some cats, but sometimes I try to play with them the same way I do my doggie friends and I'm not sure they appreciate it. Most importantly, I love children. I spent the first part of my life with a bunch of kids, and they make me really happy and comfortable when they're around. Most of all, I would love to live with some children. I'm eager to please (I love toys and treats, but for my money you can't beat praise and attention)! Once I'm done romping I love some cuddling and of course, belly rubs. I'm pretty good at sitting, I'm working on my house-training, and staying in my crate longer and longer. If you have fallen in love with me, please fill out an application at www.jasmineshouse.org

My name is Lady. I came from a very sad situation last year, but life is so much better for me these days! I am about 5 years old, up to date on all of my shots and am working on my basic manners and skills these days. You see, I came from a place where I wasn't given much of anything for years. I had never been in an actual home until recently (and hey, I really like it!), and I didn't know the kindness of humans until my rescue last August 2013. I had to wait for many months while court proceedings wrapped up around my abuser's case. But I'm finally settling into the life of a normal dog – meeting new people, going for nice walks in the woods,exploring a grassy yard and snoozing on the bed in the house while my foster-humans do their human thing. It's not so bad being a loved dog! I will probably always be a bit shy, but once I get to know you all I want to do is sit in your lap! I'm quiet and reserved, and even a bit regal, I've been told. But! I also snort like a little piglet when I sniff the grass – which is maybe more adorable than regal. My humans tell me I'm going to make an incredible companion for someone very special. Maybe that's you? http://jasmineshouse.org/adopt/adoption-application/

Hey everyone, Lady Bug here! I am loving life outside the shelter. My fosterdad is giving me plenty of love, and a ton of space to run around and burn all my energy. I get so excited when he gets home from work I can hardly contain myself - it starts with a tail wag, and soon enough my entire body is wiggling back and forth. While I enjoy playing with a variety of toys, nothing gets me amped up to play quite like a rope toy! Tug is awesome!! I've been told it's rude to jump and grab the toy out of fosterdads' hands - one of these days I'll figure out why. Did I mention I am a quick learner? I love treats, and they keep me focused! How focused you ask? I already know sit, down, touch, and I am getting better at waiting my turn at every door (I've learned it's polite to let others walk into the house first). WI am eager to learn, so with more practice, I will soon master stay and go to mat! (Both things I am working on already). Since my fosterdad taught me that nothing in life comes free, I know that I have to work for my food. But that's not a problem - I LOVE MY KONG WOBBLER!. Food games were puzzling (pun totally intended) at first, but now I've got the hang of them. I don't have accidents in the house, and I am crate trained, but would really love to sleep with you at night if you'll let me :) I love playing with other dogs, so a home with a fellow pup would be awesome, but it will definitely take me some time to get used to having a friend around 24/7. When I'm not busy chewing my toys, rummaging through empty boxes, or enjoying a frozen Kong (stuffed to my enjoyment with pumpkin and peanut butter), I will be your best snuggle buddy!

 . Norton .
  • American Staffordshire Terrier
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Meet Norton! Norton is a special guy. We met him at Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, UT last year, and were surprised to hear that he's still there over a year later. This little guy stole our hearts, so we're working with BFAS to try to facilitate an adoption for him through Jasmine's House. He's been in sanctuary for too long – and this sweet dude deserves a beautiful home. He's just a little guy– weighing in at a petite 30 pounds, and he won't get any bigger. Norton arrived at Best Friends following a bust on a dog-fighting ring. He can be shy when he meets new people, but his trainers and caregivers are continuing to work daily to overcome his shyness. One thing he doesn't have to work on is personality - he's already got tons of it! He loves tug toys and playing with other dogs. And, once he gets over his initial shyness, he's full of fun and games with his people, too! Would you like to learn more about Norton? For the right home, we'll get him transported to Maryland, and provide training and behavior support to the foster or adoptive family through his transition into a home.

Hi! I'm Rudy! People tell me I'm a survivor. I don't know what that means so much, but I do know that life is way better now than it was last year. Before last August, the only thing I knew was sadness. I was scared and way too skinny. But I was rescued from that place and went to spent a few months with some wonderful people who helped me get back on my feet again. Finally, the great people at Jasmine's House came to pick me up and take me home. Now I'm in foster care in Baltimore, Maryland with my two canine foster siblings, Nina and Moochie, and with my very own favorite cat! I love wrestling, playing tug with dogs and people, snuggling on the sofa, and cleaning the cat. I'm working on training skills in basic obedience classes with Fostermom and I love school! I am available for adoption in the Baltimore and DC metropolitan areas if you'd like to meet me? xox-Rudy!

Hi! I'm Smalls! I've had a rough go of it so far. After my first family adopted me, they had a baby, and so it was time for me to go. That little baby crawling made me nervous, and my original family wasn't able t help me to overcome my fear. I'm in foster care right now with a wonderful family. I can certainly be a shy guy – I always have been – but I do well on walks and meeting people who are gentle and kind to me. Once I know you, I warm right up and want to sit in your lap!
