From Death-Row to Farm Hand!

We discovered that many of the people that are willing to open their hearts to a Bella Run horse are also dog lovers! As a 501(c)3, we have the ability to intervene on behalf of the dogs in shelters that the public cannot pull. These dogs are scheduled to be euthanized with no chance at finding a home. Thousands of dogs are euthanized each year in Ohio alone without ever being placed up for adoption. Simply put, that isn't fair, and we are in a position to do something about it. That is how the Farm Dog Program was created.

Our unique Farm Dog Program has been a great success! In addition to house manners, we give dogs the tools necessary to be safe on a farm! When not working outside with us, the dogs are in our home, not chained up or in outdoor kennels. We expect that their new owners do the same. A dog that can behave off-leash and act appropriately around large animals is more appealing to potential homes with horses. Our dogs leave us confident, happy, and willing to work... perfect for a life with horse people!

Because we spend so much time with out farm dogs, we only have a couple dogs in the program at a time. If you are interested in a particular breed/type of dog, please contact us and can help you find a good match, even if it is through another rescue! There are always dogs needing homes!



My Dog Adoption Application - Not Started







Sarge

Age: 7
Status: Available

Sarge and Major came in together after being abandoned by their owners at a boarding facility.  They are bonded and we would love it if they could be placed together. While Sarge is only 7, he is an "old" 7, and will require much of the care that a senior dog would need as far as medical attention goes.

Sarge is a funny, loyal dog that wants a quiet life with his peop [..]

Sarge and Major came in together after being abandoned by their owners at a boarding facility.  They are bonded and we would love it if they could be placed together.

Major is a dorky, hard working dog that wants to go wherever his people are.  Major is great with other dogs but is a little too interested in cats.  We are looking for a home with no children (or older, [..]



Pepper

Age: 1
Status: Available

Pepper is probably the sweetest dog you'll ever meet!

She was owned by Amish, and when she got pregnant they chained her to a box "so it wouldn't happen again" (they must not have considered that the boy dogs would indeed still be able to "visit"?).  Anyway, when Pepper's puppies were old enough to find homes, a Good Samaritan went to get one and saw Pepper.  The owner agreed to [..]



Jax

Age: 4
Status: Available

Jax is a GORGEOUS male German Shepherd.  He found himself at a cage-only shelter after his owner passed away, and thanks to a couple rescue advocates was able to come here to Bella Run.

Jax is a silly, playful guy that is still able to quiet down when necessary.  He came to us un-neutered, so his play-style can be a little pushy at times... requiring his dog companions to not ge [..]
