Bosco  imageBosco  imageBosco  image

Bosco is my name, and I am smooth as can be. For a 16 month old mix of Great Pyrenees, St Berard and Anatolian Shepherd!. I have been around sheep til I was 3 months, and around horses. I like female dogs so far, hey, what guy doesn't!!!! I am not so great around other male dogs, I want to be the big boss. I have had 18 weeks of obedience training so I am great on leash, off leash in woods (ecollor just to be safe, but only on buzz), I love rides in a car and behave well. I do well in house but can be protective of my peeps home, but that is the Anatolian in me, I bark and scare them. If I think I need to, I will protect, so make sure your friends get to know me and I will be a cool dude.

I am used to a fenced in yard. I love the snow and water, and I have been told that with more practice, I will become a World Class Kayaker! I wobble a bit now. My current pawrents think I would be a great LGD, but I would need some training. Also, you need to understand guardian breeds, and be patient and understanding. I am still just a giant puppy so will grow a bit more and fill out. I might even do great if there is a girlfriend to guard with to show me the ropes!

Kim is listing me here as a courtesy for my mom and dad, but Pink Paws will still have you fill out all the forms and sign the adoption contract. Kim does keep in touch with most of her adopted babies (she thinks we are just on loan since she can't have all the dogs in the world!) so she can help with anything you might need. I am not neutered at this time, so there will be contract for that as well.

Please let Kim know if you want to come visit me and she will set it up. I am big, so probably no tiny toddlers to knock over. I don't want to hurt them but I don't always know my energy level or how big I am now.

I want to meet my new family soon, so please hurry if you think I would be a great fit in your lifestyle. Camping is next on my list!

Love my peeps, Bosco!

UPDATE June 2023:

My name is Ivar, after the viking. I'm a bit over 2 yrs now, UTD, crate trained, and housebroken. I weigh about 50 Lbs. I like some other dogs, but can be picky, especially with males. Girls my age and about my size or bigger that are very playful are my faves, and a slow introduction is best. I am really quite shy when you meet me, maybe. hehehe. A home with cats or smaller dogs is not for me. I do get a bit territorial if you bring another dog into the house after I am there and have set up my space. I would do great as an only dog so long as I get lots of play time. Kim says I am a typical pittie with my prey drive and all.

I love car rides, and stay in my seat for the most part. I won't try to drive while you are but your empty seat calls to me. I walk so great on or off leash, but I do have a bit of prey drive. When I saw some deer, I was not sure what to do, and come great when called. I have been told I am a pretty great house guest and try to mind my manners. I am used to getting up on furniture to snuggle but will take getting off as well. I like playing with toys and you... chewing is a good thing but make it hard for me to destroy them. I pull the squeakers out of stuffies and I need the hardest toys or I can destroy a tennis ball in about 10 min.

My favorite treat is McD fries....well, any fry actually. Just make sure they are not seasoned (onion and garlic powder are usual ingredients.). but any treat you give me is appreciated and helps me bond and get to know you.

So if you are looking for a sweet lover of a boy, look no further! I do like kids and am gentle with them, but might get a bit too excited around those that are not taught proper behavior for being with a dog.

Please come and get me, I'll try to be ready for you. Viking Ivar

 The Dutchess! image The Dutchess! image The Dutchess! image
     I have been in foster now for several months and have decided I am a Dutchess. I keep everyone else in line.  I'm almost 5 yrs old but you would not know it! I like to play with my balls and especially have my piggy with me. I prefer outside when the weather is good, not too cold or too hot, but need to be inside at times as well. I am crate trained, potty trained, and good with commands. I seem to adjust well to new things and situations taking a bit of time.  I get along with most other dogs, someone my size or even a bit smaller would make a great playmate! I do not like cats at all, but they are fun to chase! And when the deer are near, I tell the deer they need to leave my space but have not tried to chase after them.

I have been told I am very sweet and loving, a true gentle giant. I am waiting to get spayed as I am a bit too old for having puppies. I also make a great guard dog letting you know when someone I don't know is near the house. But that is what a good dog does. I just bark at them.

I am good on a leash, and I LOVE to go for car rides too. I am big and don't know my own size, so older kids would be better but I do ok around smaller ones if they don't get near enough for me to knock them over.

Mishka imageMishka image

      Hello darlings! Yes, I am very beautiful Husky girl. They say I am a Sr. because I am about 7 yrs old. Huh! I don't feel a day over 3 yrs old. That is old enough to have some manners, as well as know what I want in my hooman and siblings. My Birthday is on August 11th.  And, as you can see, I have a very gorgeous tail and eyes.

     So that I don't waste your time, let's start with the things I do NOT want. I have to admit there are creatures called cats, but I don't think I have met one. But I am not sure I like things that go Meowwww. Such a screetchy language. And I don't get along with farm animals, esp. chickens. They run from me and I chase them... LUNCH on fast feet!

     Now to the things I know I like! Hoomans are nice, I like the foods and treats and all the attention and love I can get. I have been told I am pretty well behaved, whatever that means. I like to play a bit, so tiny hoomans night have enough energy for me! I like to go fast, so those things on wheels with doors seem like a good idea.

     I am UTD on my shots except my rabies, but I will get that soon. And I have to say I can't remember if I have been spayed or not. Mom will have to find out or check to see if I have been tatooed.

Hi, my name is Kim and I am the founder and director of Pink Paw Rescue Society, Inc. PPRS is a 501(c)3 registered charity. (EIN# 83-4683348).

OUR MISSION is to speak for those that cannot. To speak out to help provide proper healthcare (vaccinations, microchipping, spay/neuter clinics) at an affordable cost. To educate everyone on proper care and to dispel myths on what is required. To speak out and change legislation in Montana so that abusive situations are avoided and penalized if they occur.

OUR GOALS are two-fold:
FIRST is to provide a safe place and home for any dog in our care. We will take in any breed, but prefer giants and bully breeds for our rescue. So many are misunderstood in the way they are protective yet so gentle with the families.

THE SECOND GOAL is a two-fold operation. First, is that our military personnel may need a
special dog when they come home to help them adjust and adapt to the changes deploy-
ment may have made in their lives. Second, is that our military service men and women need safe haven for their pets when they are deployed or not able to take them with them. We can coordinate with transports and other shelters to give each dog the best foster home possible while their moms and dads are away. No matter where the dog is.

To accomplish all this, takes lots of time, volunteers and money. Yes, every non-profit needs donations of money and other supplies ( blankets, beds, food, collars and leashes, bowls, etc.) Puppy kisses are so worth your time!

The Story on how we got started:
The picture on the home page is of my first rescue, Mr. Who-Chi Moosey Goose and one of the inspirations for Pink Paw Rescue Society. Maggi (the Staffie) was in a no-kill shelter for about 5 months. She sat in her kennel looking ever so pretty and well mannered. No one wanted her. She was 6 and a bundle of loving energy. Mags got me thinking and when an online ad for a Bull Mastiff of about 10.5 yrs came up, I had to answer it. They gave various medical issues as reasons to rehome him. When I first met him, he not only had several medical issues, but was severely depressed. Neither the vet or I thought he would last long, even with medical care and love. But, we underestimated the power of love and companionship. He and Maggi created a deep bond on first sight. We cleared his medical issues the best we could, the arthritis was severe and painful but he was a trooper. After some renewal of socialization skills, Mr. Who-Chi Moosey Goose was winning hearts everywhere and was very happy. The move to Lewistown, Mt. provided a challenge in stairs to the temporary apartment, and he met that well, growing stronger. We finally found a home and moved to Conrad, Mt. on Sept. 10, 2020. He loved his new home, but the pain with is arthritis and probable nerve and back issues took over. After 1.5 yrs with PPRS and Maggi, he passed on Sept. 24th, 2020 at about 12 yrs old . Maggi Moo is the inspiration for the rescue, Moosey Goose was the first rescue, a hospice patient. Such a rascal and loved by all who met him. He is very much missed by us both.

HI again!

Just a quick lising of things we can use for the rescue at this time to keep dogs safe and comfie.
I try to keep the list to things that are inexpensive... pre-used items in good shape are great! Some of our dogs get a bit destructive at times.

1. Blankets, comforters, towels . This will keep them warm in winter and provide a cushion in kennels.

2. Food, or gift certificates from Wal-mart, Chewy, Pet Smart, Amazon, and Petco.

3. Toys! Indestructable are the best ones, Nylabone, BullyMake etc. Their softer rubber ones for power chewers are great. I ask for these as even at 3 months old, my dane pup destroyed anything softer. No rawhide please as it is very difficult for dogs to digest. I do also like the rope toys, they are used only undersupervision, but are great for teething, chewing for dental care and playing tug with. Nylabone superchewers are destroyed in less than 5 min by some dogs. Including mine. LOL. Power chewers are best.

4. Treats of almost any type. Again, no rawhide even if made of small compressed parts. And I do not like anything made by Hartz as I have had issues with their products on several dogs.

5. Vitamins/ joint protection tablets.

6. Leashes and collars for large and x-large dogs. I do prefer Max and Neo on Amazon (or They are reflective for the solid colors, and they have a buy one and they donate one to a rescue or shelter. You can even put your favorite in there to receive them.

That may be a long list, but if you have any questions on why we prefer specific items, please contact us. We are not trying to ask the moon, just what is best for our dogs.

And, some of you may be aware, some may not, of the special needs for giant breed dogs like Great Danes, Mastiffs of all sorts, Great Pyrenees, some breeds of shepherds, and even large sized Bully breeds. So, if I ask for specific types of things, it is to prevent injury or promote their best health. Most giant breeds grow over 2 ft in one year, often a bit more. Their dietary needs are a bit different, especially when puppies. Their protein needs are only about 24% and fat only about 12% compared to most other breeds.

Pics are of: Maverick, adopted with his best pal and brother, Goose. They now have a 100 acre playground! Daisy Mae is with 2 pigs, 2 other dogs, a rabbit and 3 hooman siblings in town. She walks next to the wild rabbits that are near the 3.5 ft fence. Last is Zena, with Bear just before he passed. She is now an ESA and service dog in training to a wonderful woman who is now a very happy person, and Zena is blooming under her love.

Application Process imageApplication Process imageApplication Process image
How do I  adopt one of our dogs you might ask. Great question!

First, look through the dogs we have available. Don't see what you want? Email us with what you are looking for as for breed, characteristics, temperament, size, what you expect from a dog. See one that tugs the heartstrings? Again, just email us and we can send out an application to make sure you and the dog are compatible. Please be sure to indicate if you have a specific dog in mind. There are no wrong answers, well maybe if you live on Mt. Everest! Some of our dogs come from bad situations and we do not want to set them up to fail by placing them in a similar situation. ( like placing one on a farm when they have a proven high prey drive for farm animals, or maybe don't like women). Once your application has been filled out and approved, you can visit the dog.

Please give us at least 72 hours notice as some of our dogs may be in a foster and we need to work around their schedule.

If you are looking for service dog, there is a different application process involved requiring verification of the information provided as well as how the dog is provided to adopt. Please give breed requests or size as well if you have them. The dog may be trained for your specific needs for simple needs (you can train your own service dog) or their training may need to be continued elsewhere, based on your needs and availability of trainers at the time. When we are done training the dog, then it is your turn to get trained! LOL. But true.

After you have met and fallen in love with your choice for a pet and they seem to like you too, we will do a home check to make sure it is a good fit for the dog in your home environment and they are comfortable with the surroundings. A dog that hates to hear fire engines or police sirens probably wont do well next to them.

Even if you have live on an 18 wheeler or travel bus that should be fine, but you may need to come to us. Sometimes a regular house or apartment is not what a rambling dog needs! A fenced in yard is preferred but not required in most cases. We do check landlords for permission to have the dog, and will make sure that if there are any questions from your landlord we will be able to answer them.

Thank you!

MS.Daisy Mae!


As of March 2023,
Wow, Daisy now has a new Dane sister! And she is officially a foster fail as well
Daisy is in a foster home now! They have 3 kids, 3 other dogs, tons of fish tanks, a rabbit and 2 pigs. She is doing great there. She is much more socialized, but a bit leery of men or tall boys til she gets to know them sitting down. Unfortunately, the pigs refuse to play with her, but she loves watching the fish and rabbit, as well as the view of trains out the front window. She has now passed dog 2.5! You would never know she had any issues before at all. And all this progress in a short 4 months. This girl learns at the speed of light! No counter stealing noted even. And the best news is that Daisy's fosters want to adopt her ***!!!!!!***

She has one last trip to the vets to check the lumps still there 3.5 months after her spay. They do not seem to be attached to her abdomen, but they are clumping together and becoming firmer . Well, she had surgery for removal
of her lumps. They kept her overnight due to a bit of bleeding. She went home to her fosters and was fine for 4 days. Then she started bleeding again and had to have ANOTHER surgery to repair the first and remove more tissue. She is now doing well and being a typical dane, laying on the sofa all day long! lol. She loves her brother and sister dogs and pigs. She gave up interest since the inside bunny is lazy but jumps like a rabbit to play with the ones outside her fenced in yard.

This is Ms. Daisy Mae!. She is a 2 and a half yr old Great Dane. She is HER puppy stage right now as she has had at least 4 litters in her short time and never got to be a puppy hardly herself. Daisy will never have to worry about having another litter as she is now spayed. She is on hold to adopt for now as she needs to learn some basic commands and gain some weight and muscles to get her girlish figure back. She does respond very quickly to her name from anyone.

Daisy has a lot of promise as a guardian dog. She let you know if something is different in the neighborhood. Daisy loves to give kisses and get lots of attention, typical of a Dane. A bit more on the clumsy side, but loves other male dogs and to play with them. Not tested on other female dogs yet. She is having to learn to be a dog since she was kept in a kennel for most of her life to date. We hope she will be ready in 6 months, but will let her determine when she is ready to be adopted.

Keep your eye on this girl, she has the potential to become quite the lady! The last picture is with my Dane, Ethan, whom I rescued and she was a kennel mate of. She also plays with Thor, who has already been adopted out and just waiting for the fence to be finished so he can go to his fur-ever home and his new mom and dad will train him as a PTSD dog.

Axle imageAxle image
Hey, I'm Axle, after Axle Rose cause I'm a red border collie! I'm a good boy, I like cats and people and would love to have a kid of my own so I can play with them. I will need neutering and a Rabies shot, but have all the others.

My mom asked Kim to post me here so more people can see me and get shown off. Good with basic commands. I can go into a crate, but it is not my favorite place. Car rides and adventures out of town are fun too! Take me camping with you or to the park. I bet you will make lots of friends with me.

Let me know when you want to come and see me, I am in Ft. Benton, so not far from Great Falls.

Can I be your best friend? I promise I'll be yours!
Echo imageEcho imageEcho image
HELLO, OOO, oooo! My name is Echo! I am 2.5 years old and very well behaved. I walk well on a leash and can even go off leash after I get to know you out on walks out of town or especially in the woods. I can be in a crate, but I would rather be near you all the time. Not velcro, just in the same room doing my thing if you are  busy. I get along great with most other dogs, but have near enough to a cat to know if we can be friends or just in same room. I know about deer, but not close enough to them either.

Oh, in case I forgot, since there are two of us in the picture, I am a Border Collie. So I am smart. I can learn just about anything if you take your time to teach me. I am currently not neutered, but have all shots except rabies, and will get that soon. I love chasing or playing fetch with a ball, or run next to you jogging or on a bike.
In fact I could probably loose a couple pounds, but I am really fluffy too!

Let Kim know if you want to visit with me and take me home. My foster mom will show me off for you by appointment. I can hardly wait to meet my new family! Hurry to get me for lots of fall and winter adventures and fun!

REBEL image
I everyone! Guess what?! I found my people! I'm sure to have lots of fun and learn how to be the
best Rebel I can be. As soon as I get settled in, I'll give more info on how things are going and what is happening.
Ciao for now!

Rebel here and loving is my game! I love getting and giving attention. I am only 6 months old and am good with most other dogs, I kinda have to be.... no one knows what breed I am. So, being a heinz 57, I guess I have enough breeds in me to have me liked by a lot of other dogs. Besides, getting along with everyone else makes me so easy to have in a house that has other dogs. I am also good with kids, especially ones that like to play with me! I think I like a ball or bone tossed to play fetch, but who knows? Maybe I am a Frisbee champ in disguise? Or maybe I can jump tall buildings in a single bound? Probably not that unless they are made of blocks.

I don't bark a whole lot, but will let you know when someone is there. I have been in a crate and behave, but if the weather is good I would rather be outside. I am not sure about cats, I have not been too close to any. Deer. There are lots at my foster mom's house, but I don't try to get out of the fence to get them. My foster mom Becky is also trying to get me neutered before I am adopted. I'm not sure what that means, but I hear that most people like boy dogs that way. So, it sounds like a good thing and will make me even better than I am!

Let Kim know if you are interested in me and she will make an appointment for you to come and see how great I am! Hope to see you soon!

Thor imageThor imageThor image
WOW, an update!
I have been adopted again! Yea me! but actually, I am so handsome, who would not want me by their side to show off?

My new family has 3 kids, mom and dad (who is in the service), and would you believe they drove all the way from Washington state just to see me? I think they are great and I love there is a job to do. I not only get to make sure the family is always ok, but I will be getting more training as a service dog! AND I have a little sister, Willow. She is a white poof-ball and would fit in my mouth if I wanted to do that. She is a bouncy girl and not afraid of my size at all. I hope we can play together without me hurting her.

I have a HUGE yard to explore, and chickens in a pen. I found I am a bit afraid of them, but they seemed curious about me. lol.

I appreciate everyone that wanted to adopt me, but there just is not enough of me to go around!

Slobbery kisses everyone!

My name is Thor. I am just now almost 2 yrs old. I am a Daniff, half Mastiff and half Great Dane. I was previously adopted and am back as they were both in a car accident and are looking over me til I cross the Rainbow Bridge years from now. They thought I would make a great service dog. So, from the middle of Oct. 2021 til about the middle of August I have been in training. Out on my first real job they said I passed with flying colors! I did not get distracted, I sat when told and settled well without moving or going over across the hall to see what I could find. I walked beside my daddy with no issues in his wheelchair. When they told Kim at PPRS, she took that with a grain of salt, but is still so proud of me! So now, instead of just playing with another dog in the yard and getting into trouble (I used to think farm animals and cats were just big toys for me to play with, but I admit now I might have been a bit rough on them).

I had a job as a SERVICE DOG. That made me feel very important. I am looking for a new home that will give me a chance to be a fully trained service dog. I am very affectionate and kinda learning that I am not a tiny lap dog, even though I like sitting in laps. I want to be the bestest dog I can be. Most of the time. hehehe, I still get into trouble but am learning some of my ideas dont work out so well. I am very active when playing with my pack, but calm and mellow when needed for support. I like making people happy and am very well socialized with people and dogs. Neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. I want to continue training so I can be just what you need!

Angels' Lacey loo, courtesy listing imageAngels' Lacey loo, courtesy listing imageAngels' Lacey loo, courtesy listing image
I'm Lacey a 2 yrs. English Setter. I am the mom of Maverick and Goose. so proven breeders. I am registered in the Field Dog Stud Book (funny place for a lady to be registered!) and I have been trained in the last year, but not been hunting. UTD and micro-chipped. I am a housedog, not kennel raised, but am crate trained. I love to get and give attention.

Well, Kim found a great foster for me that failed! So I have a new home as they adopted me. Yeah, they just feel in love with my ability to ask for love and affection all the time. Not to mention I now have a setter sister, she is red so we complement each other well. We were out on a walk with mom and dad and both pointed at the same grouse! My training kicking in, not to mention my sissies help.

Mom and dad are travel nurses and have plans to go to Alaska this summer. We get to go too! They have already had me out when they skied. I stayed in the car mostly, my paws are tender and we tried shoes, but I take them off. LOL. So we will get my paws toughened up a bit and I will be so ready to go next time. Maybe I will beat them off the slopes?

Goose and Maverick imageGoose and Maverick imageGoose and Maverick image
Ok, so we are not a giant breed. We are English  Setters!

UPDATE: 12/16/22
Hey guys! Boy did we hit the jackpot at our new home. Not only do we have a new mom and dad, but we have our very own boy to play with! AND we got to go to the same home!! They have 100 acres to play on, well, when it gets warmer out. We go do perimeter checks when we can. We are now doing so well, getting some training. Maybe we can learn how to catch a frisbee, and show everyone where birds are. We think they would like to watch them rather than hunt, but that is ok. They are building a house there so there will be lots of activity when it is warmer. Well help them build it and tell them what we want so the house is ours too.

We are now about 7 months old and there are two of us that are available to become your hunting dog or pet. Mom and Dad are available for you to see and both are registered. Dad is white with lots of black speckles, lean and very friendly. Mom is white and red, with fewer speckles. She is trained as a hunter. We are both microchipped, UTD, and have been well socialized with both other dogs around us and we gravitate to our humans for pets and cuddles.

Zena imageZena imageZena image

Update to the Update!! I have a new home, not far from Kim. I met my new mom and her son and we got along perfectly. She took me for a very short walk and I behaved well, until Kim wanted me to go back in the car. It was a bit crowded with the puppies in their crate there.

Well, I made it to my new moms' apartment. It is so cute! Mom has a recliner for me to sit and lay on but I was trained not to get on furniture so I may never get there. But I have a bed right next to mom which is where I want to be anyhow. We go for walks, and some of the other residents have special treats for me. I am always polite, except when I met moms' ex. I peed on his shoe. He was nice about it so I guess he is ok. I am learning more about how to play and chase a ball.... I think this spring is gonna be really nice.

I guess my new mom really needed me like I needed her, she is so happy with me and says I am so well behaved everywhere we go. I don't pull on the leash anymore hardly even. And I am happy with all the attention for just me from everyone and love to make my mom smile! She poops me out though, so I better get in shape.

Hey Kim, I need new pics!!!!! TTFN.

Bella image

OMG! I have a great new home. It is on 12 acres! I don't know if my legs will let me explore that much at one time. My new mom and dad already had 2 dogs, so I still have some company. One is a young dog, and boy does he like to play. The other dog is about 10 yrs and does not always want to play due to arthritis. But, I love to play! And they have so many balls for me to chase. I may have only one eye, but sometimes I find it before my brothers do.

Ok, I ended up have surgery to remove my eye. Thank you to everyone that donated for it.
I am all healed up and still beating the pants off my brothers! I take toys when I can, esp. from Wesson. He is a big german shepherd and grumbles but I'm so cute he can't resist. Tigger on the other hand could be a it more polite, but he is still basically a puppy at heart!.

I have been there almost 4 months now and do you know what? I just found out we share our crate/bed area with a rabbit! And he has been here the whole time! Boy I thought it was just Wesson smelling funny! lol. Watching the rabbit is great, I call it Bunny TV!

I love my new family so much. We go and do things together and take wonderful hikes.

See ya later, gator! Bella out.

Casper imageCasper image
Hi everybody!

Casper is adopted!!! And a totally different guy. He has confidence and loves playing with other dogs and meeting new people! He went to Florida to be a spoke dog for a petting zoo! Kinda to help kids not be afraid of bigger animals. He loves his job there. No new pics at this time...

Update 8/10/22:

Caspers' mom came home and found him missing with a screen out of a window. Not sure if he went after something or someone got him. Mom keeps looking for him.

9/1/22 She found him at a shelter. He was shaved down all the way and looked like he had been in several fights. So, looks like someone took him (he would have jumped into anyone's car). she is having to do some retraining as he is now food aggressive with his pack and shows some other behaviors that he did not have before. He roams and is not very polite sometimes. Mom is has trained dogs so she will know what to do and see if Casper can be what he used to be.

2/3/23 Well Casper was proving to be a challenge to being trained and there were distractions and behaviors where he told people he did not like what was going on. He was not polite about it. So mom turned him over to a rescue that helps dogs on an individual basis. Time will tell how he will do. I personally think he was abused by those that took him, trying to make him an attack dog or something. That can be very traumatic for a dog. I hope they can help him. We will try to get in touch with them so we can keep updated.

Brighla imageBrighla imageBrighla image

Hi everyone!

I have been adopted! They filled out the application, talked with Kim who checks everything out and they were approved! Pending the home visit. Which we did too. I met my new mom and dad and they are so nice. I have a big house with a HUGE yard to roam. they live at the top of a bluff and you can see the whole city from there. There is a porch that goes on forever upstairs if I want to stay out of the yard. We drove 6 hours to get me here for the home check. My new mom shares custody with her ex for 2 dogs and we made sure to meet them. I'm really laid back so it was not an issue. They also had a dog friend they dog sit for, so I met 3 new friends. I was a lady and behaved well, but it was a bit overwhelming at first, but 30 min later we all were pals.

Kim got pics of my first night there and I am just cool, calm and relaxed next to mom and my Irish Wolfhound brother. She said I look so spoiled and loved already. I think I'm gonna be a daddy's girl, but I am there to keep mom company while she works and my brothers are not here. I'll see if mom can get some pics of me to share at my new home. I'll miss Lily (Kims' dog) and Kim, but this way she can find more amazing homes for other pupper dogs that need them.


I'm Brighla and I think I'm so pretty. Well, right now I could loose a few pounds, but still my coat is so fluffy it is hard to tell.

A bit about me: I am a mix of I think St. Bernard and maybe a bit of collie. That explains my fluffy coat, but not really my golden color. Maybe there is some Golden Retriever in me somewhere??? Anyway, I am about 3.5 years old and 1.5 yrs ago I had a repair to my ACL. That is one reason for me to be maybe just a couple lbs thinner than normal. I love going on walks, playing with balls and toys, getting a car rides, or just hanging at home. I do enjoy giving and getting affection. I may not be a snuggle bug tho. I have been in a couple of homes and am pretty good at supporting my family when someone is a bit down or is having trouble. I try not to get in your face, but sometimes it needs to be done!

Kim said she will make sure I am UTD on vaccines. And I am also spayed, crate trained (I really never need it), housebroken, great with other dogs. I just ignore them if they are pesky. I like kids that are great around dogs and I do tolerate those that are not, but they do test any dogs' patience!. Oh, I am used to a doggy door as well. I like to sleep in a bed next to you on the floor, and have learned I like sitting on a couch . Since my coat is so thick, it can get matted easily if I am not brushed often. I am patient and like being brushed when I don't have mats, they hurt!

I think I would like a home with other dogs, they are fun to play with. But if I am an only dog that is ok too. Like I said kids are fine, but please don't let them pull my ears or tail or tease me. Even if they do, I will just walk away and learn to ignore them. I don't bite or growl. A lady behaves better. I do have some experience in being trained for ESA or service dog, but was just getting started before my ACL went out. So it has been a while.

I am currently in Rudyard, but might be able to make a trip to Great Falls with mom and dad if we are headed there. I hope you are my new person or people. See ya soon!


Head puppy

Update! I am now adopted out to a great home! Mom is in school at University and I get so much attention from everyone! I'll keep you updated. Hi! I'm Charlotte and I'm about 10 weeks now. I am your typical high energy, friendly little girl. I'm curious, and just learning about the world! I am up to date on puppy shots and worming and ready to come home and play and learn how to be a great dog. Our breed is smart, active and gets along great with other animals. We do have registered parents, but are coming to you without them. There will also be a spay/neuter contract and refund of partial fee when proof given.

Oscar Mayer

Second in command

Update! I got adopted too! I miss my siblings a bit, but I love my new mom and dad. They are teaching me a lot!. Call me Oscar! Even though Charlotte said just about everything she could about girl dogs, I am all rough and tumble boy! I like to run and play A LOT! Take me home and i'll follow you anywhere and back. Don't tell Charlotte, but I'm smarter than she is! Na, Na, Na, na, nahhhhh! LOL


Last in line

Update! Someone decided they liked me. I got to go home with them and am coming out of my shell. Lots of new things to see and do and get into! Hi. My name is Albert, I'm a bit on the shy side til I get to know you better. I tend to stay near for comfort and have you protect me... unless it is from from sister! Then she is the one I like to play with most. Most of the time. I'm getting a bit more bold with my brothers. One day, I will rule!



Update! I got adopted too! Last one, my brother made it out before I did. I liked hanging with the big dogs. But I like my new home and everyone here. They keep me busy and I get to learn new things. Isabel. Such royal intonations! I should be in charge, but Charlotte rules. For now. I am told I am so sweet and like to get in your lap if you will let me. Like all my brothers and sisters, I am smart and will learn fast when taught with care. Bring me home and you will have a best friend furever. PIcs will be coming, for some reason the computer does not want to show me off!


gate keeper

Update! I got a great new home and am just so loved. I get to play all day! Elliot here. I'm fairly low keyed compaired to the others. But like to play and sleep alot. They say when a dog sleeps 16 hours a day they are happy! I'm happy here, but my mom told me having my own family is even better! So, family, here I come, and you darn tooting better be ready for one playful pupperooni!

UPDATE: Tara has found a new home where she is happy to be with the other dogs on the farm.  Running and taking care of things makes her happy!

Hi, and my name is now Tara. It used to be Penny, but I like and answered to Tara. Kim needs to change some of my info and thought I could tell you about myself the best.

Well, I am a smaller mastiff! I am only about 70#. I have a very silky brindle coat and eyes that like to keep track of you. I know basic commands, shake with both paws and (don't tell Kim) I have a few tricks up my sleeve too. I'm a young 4 to 6 yrs and not only am I super people friendly and like other dogs with proper intro. I do like to be a bit bossy. I am crate and loose leash trained as well as follow voice command well off leash. I am so happy when I meet people I do a growl sound while wagging my tail and want to lick you lots. I am also good with farm animals. Kid friendly and of course housebroken. I like being outside during the day in nice weather. So if you are looking for a cuddly friend, I'm the girl for you!

MAYA imageMAYA imageMAYA image
New Update: It is with a heavy heart that her new mom called me to tell me she passed with lymphosarcoma last November. She was loved til the end by all that knew her. I know she is over the Rainbow Bridge and waiting for those that loved her.

UPDATE: Maya has found her furever home! No other dogs, and lots of love. She is happy at her new home.

This is Maya, a Cane Corso!
She is 7 yrs old, about 120 #, a very sweet, loving, slightly playful on her terms, and even knows some tricks, and is ambidextrous! She walks well on a leash, has great recall and likes the nickname CowCow or MyMy. She will greet you each morning with kisses and would love to sleep in bed with you. She does good snuggles.

Her breeder adopted her out and found out at about 1.5 yrs that she was being kept in an area
that small boys had unattended access to. Therefore, she was teased and poked at with sticks, rocks,
and anything else they thought was fun. So, she is not very fond of boys, little or bigger at this time. Then
her next owners , due to that fear, put her in a separate room to protect her nephews from her acting out. So,
we are making that a work in progress. While she barks at the boys next door when they are in the tree on the fence, she is not aggressive. So we are hoping we can help her understand not all males are bad and going to tease or
hurt her. Prior to being spayed, she had some fights with other larger female hunting dogs. To be honest, they came after she was well established. She did get along well with their smaller female dog, and with puppies. While my Lily Kate is a puppy for sure, she is almost as tall as Maya at 6 months! What can you expect from a Great Dane though. lol.

At the moment her ideal home would be women only with slow introductions to visitors, and little contact with male visitors. If you work from home, or are retired and want a loving companion to alert you to visitors or changes, she is for you!

No adoption application fee... but there is an adoption fee to cover medical expenses and donations are always welcome! Walking a dog or spend8ng time with them is good too. We do this out of pocket or with donations when available.
Thank you. Kim

My name is Natasha and I am 8 weeks old so I don't know much of the world. I know my mom and dad and that my siblings are gone now. I heard they were adopted, and I need to be adopted too. I asked my dad what that meant and he said it means that someone will come and take me to their house to be their dog. They will love me, feed me good things and make sure I am safe. I also got told I will be vaccinated, which means shots to protect me from nasty germs and diseases that can make me very sick. Whew! that was a lot to learn at one time.
But let me tell you about me. I live in Montana and saw my first snow. It was fun to run in but cold. Dad said my paws would get more furry maybe and protect me from the cold. My dog daddy is a mix of German Shepherd and Great Pyrenees, but is not big. My mom is Border Collie and Pit Bull mix. I think look more like me, but I put their pic on here and will let you decide. I am told I am a typical puppy, all energy that does not where to go or what to do, so I get told NO a lot. I am learning that means to stop what I am doing. But I get right back in trouble again when I do something else. I need someone to help me learn how to be a good dog, to sit, stay, come when called, to leave it and to get out (but why would I need to get out anything except trouble.??? I am told I am very cute and even cuter when I am sleeping on my space.
I would love to have some kids to play with, maybe that will help me a good girl as I would play with them and take a nap when done.
There will be some things that will go with me so I feel less scared at my new home.

Please look at my pictures , mom and dad are the last one, and see how cute and loving I am. I can hardly wait to start a new life with someone soon!
Why a rescue?

JJ Bear
Hi, My name is JJBear. I am about 1.5 yrs old.  I am not currently neutered, but will be soon. I started fighting with my brother, so I am separated and looking for a new home. Maybe I won't be so disagreeable after that is done.  

I am a bit shy til I get to know you, but I tend to warm up fast, especially if you have peanut butter! That is my favorite treat.

I am good on a leash, housebroken and mind very well. I love car rides and get along with female dogs well. I am not sure on cats or small animals like gerbils. I like kids, and love to play at almost anything!

I am available to adopt at any time, but must be brought back for my shceduled neuter, or wait til I have recovered for a week to take me home.

As a shepherd, I need someone to keep me busy and out of trouble. Please help me be a good boy, I promise lots of kisses and loves.





JJ Bear
They call me the Bear, JJ Bear. Cause I like to snuggle and cuddle. I like kids, girl dogs, not so sure about cats. I am a well behaved boy that does well on leash, love to ride in the car and know how to behave.
I will be getting neutered soon, so will be available after that and healing.
As The Bear, it may take a bit for me to get to know you , but I will do just about anything for peanut butter! I love that stuff and would eat a whole jar if I could!
Keep me active and give me a job to do and I will be the best boy you could want.
Let Kim know if you want to meet me and she can get it set up. I am staying in Ft. Benton for now.
