Vayda

Age:
Two Years

Gender:
Female

Breed:
German Shepherd/Shetland Sheepdog

Dogs Known:
If any previous shelter dogs would like to collaborate I am down :)




Personality:
Vayda is the type of dog that can get along with just about anyone. As long as she is granted time to get used to others before being kept in close quarters with them, she makes friends quickly. Before the plague, she often found herself feeling as if she wasn't getting out or doing enough. Vayda likes to keep herself busy and the days long. Loves to be the center of attention, and often finds herself having to be a leader when no one else will step up. She is not the type to fight for this leadership, though. Vayda is very submissive, and tries to keep the peace among other dogs when it is possible. Vayda has bad anxiety and abandonment issues; does not do very good alone.

Backstory:
Vayda and her sister, Daisy, found themselves at an animal shelter when they were 10 months old after being abandoned at a set of dumpsters early one morning. Vayda hid behind her sister, and did not like being messed with by shelter staff. Her sister was very adoptable, and was adopted quickly, whilst Vayda was left behind. She had quite a few problems when her sister left, but quickly befriended a shelter volunteer. This was the only person that she would come to, so the volunteer would come daily to walk her and feed her. Vayda had high hopes that she would be adopted by this volunteer, but they didn't. She was instead adopted by an older couple. Upon arriving to their home, Vayda rushed under their bed and did not come out for three days. She went to the bathroom under there, ate the mattress, and bit the man when he tried to pull her out. Animal control was called, and Vayda was surrendered back to the shelter. Since she had nipped someone, the staff was careful with her and she had to be muzzled on walks or during meets and greets.
Despite her issues, Vayda was adopted again by a younger couple, who knew of her issues and wanted to help her. This time, Vayda did a bit better, and seemed more willing to learn with this couple. Things started to turn south with this family when they started going back to work. During the day, Vayda was kept in a laundry room with food and water. One day, upon arriving back home from work, they discovered that she had chewed through the bottom of the door to the laundry room, and was hiding under the bed where she refused to come out. Due to the house they were living in being a rental, these owners also opted to return Vayda back to the shelter.
Vayda didn't mind the shelter as much as anyone would think. She enjoyed playing with the other dogs, and liked the attention she got from the staff during open hours. However, at night, when she was left in the dark alone in her kennel, Vayda would panic. Workers would come in the mornings to find she had torn her kennel apart, and would be shaking cowardly in the back. Finally, one day, Vayda's favorite volunteer gave in, and decided to adopt her despite her issues.
Things immediately improved for Vayda. She was finally with someone she knew and trusted. She was rarely left alone, and even when she was, she was taken to training where her confidence improved greatly. She even took up agility and herding!
It had been a year of the good life when Vayda's owners all mysteriously disappeared. She was left alone in the home for weeks when she was finally able to eat out the front door.
That is where we will begin :)

Uh- also, it was an honor making this character sheet because this is literally my dog and her shelter story, so I'm glad I get to roleplay as her :)

Name: Nona
Age: 2 years
Gender: Female
Breed: Whippet
Appearance: Nona is a lanky female with a white underbelly, lower paws, lower tail, and most of her face. Her markings consist of a brindle-type pattern with light brown and dark gray.
Personality: Nona is a well mannered and respectful dog. She recognizes authority and tends to shy away from it. She is quite submissive and has not interest in being "top dog." Shy and hesitant of new faces, Nona is most commonly seen on her own.
Backstory: Nona was born into the city by two loving parents. She had two siblings, one of which died early in life. Her mother was lucky enough to be grabbed by their owners before evacuating. Her father was taken out of the city by those that came to rescue as many as they could. Her sibling didn't want to wait around to be killed by starvation or dehydration, and wandered off into the surrounding forest. Nona presumed her sibling fell to the fate of the bears that roamed the forest.

1583127973774.png
Name: Egan
Age: 9 years
Gender: Male
Breed: Lab
Appearance: Egan is an all black, three legged dog.
Personality: Egan is a rather selfless dog. He is always giving to others, even if he himself is worse off then others. He can typically stay calm during all situations and does not take sides, attempting to always keep the peace. Due to his older age and missing one leg, Egan tends to laze around more than most others. He enjoys spreading happiness to those around him. Talkative and friendly, he often can't take a hint that someone doesn't have interest in talking to him.
Backstory: Egan spent most of his life in and out of the pound. Previous owners would pass away or no longer want him. When the rescuers came with cranes, they ended up damaging the building that he was in. Enough damage was done that he was able to escape his cage and the building itself.

Maybe a mix that could look like one @4eyedintrovert ? I could imagine a german shepherd x pharaoh hound x shiba inu mix that could look similar to a jackal perhaps (in terms of coloration rather than the fox-like wolf appearance)?

I also read that jackal x dog hybrids have been successful in captivity, but idk if you're open to that in this rp @Afropuppy? We already have a wolfdog character, idk if you'd be open to other half-wild crossbreeds but thought I would just throw it out there ;;
Well we do already have a wolf-dog as you said so I would accept a dog with jackal-like markings and nothing more. Sorry~

Yay! Rather than play my own dog (because he is too much of a spoiled princess to survive in this sort of setting even if he is bred to catch rabbits and break the speed limit), here is...

Saga!
norwegian_lundehund.jpg

Name: Saga
Age: One-and-a-half
Gender: Female
Breed: Norwegian Lundehund​

Appearance: Brown-and-white, a foot tall and all of thirteen pounds, with weird-looking feet. Double-coated, with ears that can go from pricked to flat to airplaned and a tail that can go from straight down to curled into a complete loop. Most people are unfamiliar with her breed and will likely assume she's either a crossbred or perhaps a klee kai or some other I-think-she's-an-insert-breed-here guess.
Personality: A carefree daredevil who loves heights and small spaces. Friendly with anyone who doesn’t respond with aggression, cuddly, energetic and remarkably agile. If she's your friend she would throw herself into a fiery pit to help you; if you make yourself her enemy you'll probably find yourself the target of many pranks. Can seldom resist a dare.
Backstory: One of her earliest memories is being taken from her littermates, put into a crate alone, spending a long, long, LONG time with strange noises and smells and vibration, and being taken back out of the crate in a place that smelled completely different, surrounded by humans she’d never seen before who spoke with words she’d never heard before. She settled quickly in her new country, finding herself in a family with four children and loving every moment fof it- even when they pulled her ears and tail in play. She did repeatedly get into trouble though- for figuring out how to get onto counters, onto tables, into cupboards, into bins, even up to the top of bookshelves and over the back yard fence, and how to open bolts and latches. Her hunting instincts also put an end to the family hamster; her humans were rather upset about that, but that didn’t stop her from catching any bird or rat brave enough to venture into her yard.
When her family vanished she missed them all dreadfully, but her instincts and skills have meant that she’s mostly survived very well without them. It didn’t take many days of hunger for her to work out that the animals she’d been catching tasted good, and she's learning to be a resourceful and clever hunter. Her one big failing is her poor sense of danger. She assumes that everyone dog-shaped is friendly, and that her agility and wits will always be enough to get herself out of trouble. She’s taken to ranging further and further afield, lonely and looking for a new pack to be part of.
Dogs you know: None yet

Other: Lundehunds are a really interesting breed. They were originally used to hunt puffins in cliff faces. Compared to other dogs they have extra toes on their feet- six toes, all fully jointed and muscled, almost as good as opposable thumbs. They also have extra bones in their necks and are super flexible, able to turn their forelegs out ninety degrees to the sides. Their ears are more mobile than other dogs’ ears as well. They are prone to digestive trouble which means they do best on a high-protein, high-fat diet and need to avoid grain-based food.
...hope she looks okay?

Rumble Fish

The Paradise Hunter
1585341792207.png
1585341938786.png

Age:
5 (Human years)

Gender:

Female

Breed:

Irish Wolfhound x German Shepherd

Appearance:

With the height of the Irish Wolfhound and build of the Alsatian, Ran is a behemoth of a dog. She has a marbled coat with a black snout and brown eyes. One ear is torn from an altercation with another dog in her puppyhood. Her default expression of irritation and/or annoyance can scare some off coupled with her size but her eyes have a soft enough gaze to ultimately leave a gentle impact.

Personality:

Ran is a serious soul, laconic and unlikely to show her true emotions in the company of others. However, her stoic nature can be easily shattered through loyalty and a sense of protectiveness. While she enjoys her own company, she is not above interacting with others. A quick way to her heart would be to share your food with her. Ran prefers a slower pace in life but can rise to the occasion and is a formidable fighter if she has to.

Backstory:

Ran does not remember much before she was bought by a kind Japanese man for his family. She enjoyed a good life on the family's estate with plenty of space to run and children to play with. Despite her serious nature, she still had much patience for the children and allowed them to climb and play on her. However, after a few happy years, something changed. Ran did not know what, but it caused the family to suddenly leave their large home and move into the city. This was a problem for Ran as it was small. Despite being walked by all four members of the family, it was a strain on the dog, causing her to develop claustrophobia.

When the humans vanished, Ran was in the care of a family member, who locked her in a small room at night. Ran was able to chew her way out of the room after a couple of days and has been roaming on her own since. Her sheer size is normally enough to scare off any threat that comes her way. Due to her limited contact with other dogs, she is not the best versed with canine society and prefers human company. Living with other dogs is not completely out of the question however.


Dogs you know:

None

Other:

Can read Japanese due to her human family.

20200427_104958.jpgName: Nina
Age: 10 (dog years)
Gender: F
Breed: Golden brown terrier
Appearance: Matted and dirty golden fur, long tail, one floppy ear that is only straight when she's suprised
Personality: She's very annoying, and is almost always asking questions, but can be useful for doing things only little dogs can do. She's very sneaky and almost always finds out things she shouldn't, as she is curious and inquisitive by nature.
Backstory: Nina's story here began with a life-threatening injury to her head, and awoke from a coma just a few days ago. She survived and has no lasting damage other than the occasional headache, but has a hard time remembering anything before she woke up.
Dogs you know: None yet.

Let me know if this is okay. Sorry about the inconvenience I caused.
Accepted!

Just gonna ask for a small adjustment: We have decided that we're going realistic enough for our dogs to not be able to see colours well (like actual dogs) so idk is she would be able to see what purple is
