12.12.18 A message from Cato

Hi there! My name is Cato and I once was helped on the 'how to help Minnesota dogs in need FB page'. I use to be named Charlie and was looking for a rescue before being euthanized. I wanted to ask for some help sharing my story. I've been with my foster family since April and still looking for a forever home! I'm handsome, sweet, love other dogs and kitties but I have fear issues that make my anxiety tough but I've come a really long way with this. If there's anyone looking to adopt a dog that just needs a little extra love and training please take a look at my bio here. My adoption fee is waived and the rescue has money saved to help with one on one training for my future family

11.30.18 Upcoming Adoption Event TOMORROW- Bent Brewstillery

When: Saturday, December 1st 1:00 - 3:00 P.M.

Where: Bent Brewstillery 1744 Terrace Dr, Roseville, MN 55113

See below for the dogs that will be joining us:

Meet Aris

Name: Aris
Nicknames: Pup, puppy, peanut
Age: 8 weeks (11/15/2018)
Activity Level: Puppy
Things I do in my free time: Sleep, snuggle, run around, chew on toys, do somersaults, sleep, repeat
Things I know or sort of know: Sit, up and down stairs
Things I am learning: Potty training, crate training
Kids: Slept through all interactions of being held, petted, etc., but did fine with those, could be a bit nippy if playing as she is still young and learning
Dogs: Fine, adults and other puppies
Cats: Unknown
Size: Less than 10 lbs
Car rides: Still getting better with this, so far does better riding with foster dog siblings than alone in the crate.

Additional Info from foster parent: Aris is a slightly spunky, sweet, little pup. She is still learning how to be independent from mom/siblings, so she appreciates having foster doggie siblings around or remaining close to you (especially if you’re willing to hold her). She likes to follow you around and will sit and stare up at you with her tail wagging in hopes of you giving her attention or food. She loves to snuggle and curl up into you. Being so young she still sleeps a lot, but when she’s ready to play she bounces all over the place and does somersaults. Then she crashes and goes back to sleep. We’re still working on getting her comfortable with the crate. She will cry for awhile at first, but then she settles down and sleeps through majority of the night. Sometimes there’s a whine here and there, but not as much as at the start. We’re also still working on potty training - she is very good about going outside but needs frequent outings to prevent accidents in the house as she is still learning to let us know she needs to go out. Aris has done well meeting new people and mostly just sleeps through these interactions at this point but is fine being handed off to whoever. This adorable little lady is sure to warm her way into your heart and can’t wait to meet her future forever family!

Meet Winnifred

Nicknames: Winnie, Mama Bear
Age: 1 year (as of 7/28/18)
Activity Level: Alternating spurts of energy and cuddle time!

Additional Info from foster parent: Winnifred is an absolute doll! She was picked up as a stray in Eagan. She came to us already knowing sit and shake. Why anyone would let go of this bundle of love is beyond me! She was a mama before she was rescued, but that all has been fixed now! She has perfected the sad puppy face and can get away with anything with those ears! She is interested in the resident cat, but only to play. If only the cat wanted to be friends, too. She does excellent in the kennel when we’re at work or at bedtime. Come morning or when we get home from work, her whole body wiggles she’s so happy to see us!


Meet Beau

Hello! My name is Beau and I'm a loveabull goofball! I am around 3.5-4 years old. I love to play and snuggle. I'm shy but I'm learning to have confidence and come out of my shell. I know basic commands, I great in my crate and I'm house trained! I'm still working on "come" and waiting. Whether you want a walking partner or a movie snuggle buddy, I'm your guy! I'd be best in a home with older kids, the little ones are a kinda scary. I haven't really met any cats yet but I do like other pups. I would love a family that will take the time introducing me to new adventures!


Meet Stanley & Cato

Welcome to MPBR, Jamie!

Jamie loves people, to play, and she loves attention. If you like cuddles, she is the girl for you. She is very sweet. Jamie is not a big fan of being alone but we're working on this (we can't blame her, she did just arrive from Texas not too long ago and her history is unknown). She is Dog, Cat, and Kid approved!

11.28.18 Meet Holden

Hi, I'm Holden!
Everyone, Please Meet Holden!

I'm a 6 month old boy (as of 11/1/18) and I am pretty darn handsome! Once this skin condition clears up I'll be so stunning it'll knock your socks off! 
*Holden came to MPBR with a severe case of non contagious Demodex Mange. His skin was very irritated but it's an easy fix with some medicated shampoo and he is already feeling much better!
My foster momma tells me I'm a very good boy because I haven't potties in the house not once, I sit when asked, I go right in my kennel, I sleep quietly all night, I did great in the bathtub, getting my nails trimmed, riding in the car, and I'm smart! 
I'm learning things like "leave it", and "sit n wait" for my food, and what's appropriate manner with humans and doggies. I'm very friendly and submissive and love my current pittie and one Yorkie foster siblings! 
I looooove food, so I'm pretty easy to train, and at the rate I'm goin' I'll be top of any class one day! 
Well, that's my story, I'm Holden and I'm praying that one day soon you'll be holdin' me... furever!

I follow my big people around from room to room and it's a lot of fun!

She loves to snuggle just like a baby under you chin while wrapped in blankets. She understands boundaries when older dogs give the warning. Autumn has super soft fur. She is shy at first but will warm up quickly. She will walk small distances (tiny legs!). On warmer days she loves to zip around the yard, and she does well with baths. She is a very kind, loving girl.
