Dogs

These dogs are available:

Maggie is a sweet puppy, but she does need some behavioral work… Maggie is at the age where she is “testing her boundaries.” And since she has some heeler in her, she can be nippy. Maggie is OK with other dogs, and she could be OK with cats. She will need a home with either no kids, or older kids due to her propensity to play rough and be mouthy/nippy.
Maggie would do best with an experienced dog owner that can work with her to bring out her potential. She is a smart girl with a lot to offer, but she needs a strong leader to teach her how to be a good canine citizen!
Maggie should not be very large when full grown (maybe 45 lbs).
Adoption fee (includes spay/neuter, microchip, rabies vaccine, and a health check from a vet): $120

Gunner is a great dog! He’s a happy, playful guy with a friendly personality. Gunner was adopted from us a little while ago and returned because he would not stop chasing cats! So, a cat-free home is a must for Gunner… Other than that, his adopter said he was the perfect dog: never went potty in the house, never ran out of the yard, and loved to sleep on the couch! Gunner needs a break, and he needs to find that perfect retirement home — come meet Gunner! Adoption fee (includes spay/neuter, microchip, rabies vaccine, and a health check from a vet): $75

Nash is a new arrival, and he was a stray, so we are just now getting to know him. He appears to be very calm and mature. He has a pleasant demeanor and soulful eyes. We are not sure if Nash had a good life before coming to us… We think Nash is in need of an owner that will be able to spoil him in his remaining years!

Chesney is a sweetie! She is a great family dog and she loves cats! We don’t know if she would like living with another dog… Chesney was brought to us because she was not doing well with the new baby in the family… She was not mean or anything like that, she just didn’t understand she couldn’t jump up and be close to the baby. Her former owners said she was a very loving dog, and liked to spend most of her day sleeping. Chesney is a new arrival, so we may update more info soon!

Daniel is a sweet dog that needs LOTS of training! He will require a very dog-experienced owner to work with him. He has lots of potential, but he can be fearful, he is very strong, and he can be pretty mouthy… He would do best in an adult only home, but he will definitely need to live in a home with NO SMALL KIDS until he learns some self control (he plays too rough and uses his mouth too much). He also needs a home with NO CATS!

Stella is a calm girl who was brought in because she wasn’t getting along with the other dog in the home — she would do best as an ONLY pet. We are also told that she would do best in a home with no small kids. Stella is still pretty reserved at the shelter right now, so we aren’t really seeing her true personality

Myra is an incredibly sweet little girl with only 3 legs!!! Myra came to us because she is a bit of an escape artist and her owners could not keep her contained. She was adopted, but then brought back because she is not good with other animals and she is destructive when left alone… Myra is 7 years old, weighs about 55 lbs, and we are pretty sure she is some sort of chow mix with SUPER SOFT hair!
Myra does not appear to like cats very much, and even though she has had dog friends in her other home, she may be very choosy about her canine friends and would do best as an ONLY dog. Myra will need a new family that can spend lots of time with her and not leave her outside in a kennel. Myra is house-trained, and she walks really well on a leash. We think she would really benefit from crate training so she she stays out of trouble when left alone!
Since Myra is missing one of her front legs, there is a good chance that she will — in her later years — develop some form of arthritis due to the increased force placed on her remaining front leg. However, this can be controlled with medication, and should not be anything to worry about, just something to be prepared for.
Please let us know if you have any questions about Myra!
Jersey is a super cute little pit bull. She is, young, spayed, in good health and a great size at only about 45 lbs. She’s a calm girl and has shown us that she is willing to learn if you’re willing to offer treats! Though, she does have issues with food allergies, so a non-chicken, grain-free food would be a necessity.
Jersey does very well with older kids, *some* dogs, and she lived very successfully with a cat in her previous home. Jersey also needs a securely fenced yard and plenty of walks to keep her well exercised and content. She is NOT the type of dog you can just leave in the yard all day… If you are looking for a neat little pit bull girl to keep you company and make you feel safe, Jersey just might be the one!
 Duke just came back from our prison training program! He learned basic obedience, leash manners, and socialized with lots of different people. Even though he has been through lots of training, Duke still has some reservations with new people and situations. He can be nervous at times and untrusting until he gets to know you. Because of this, Duke should not live in an active home with lots of visitors or kids… Also, he would do best in a home where he will be kept indoors, not just left outside by himself.

Eve was very scared when we first got her, but she has since become very sweet!  Eve needs to go to a home where she will be the only pet, and where there are no
kids.  She can be very protective of her home so she will need a fenced yard to keep her safe.

 

Dutchess is a sweet and happy girl who can get nervous with new people — however, tasty treats help to win her over! She appears fairly calm in her kennel, but we are told that she likes to escape from the yard! So, Dutchess will need a very secure yard to keep her safe at home.
We are not too sure how she is with other animals, but due to her nervous nature, we think she would do best in a home with no small children (they might scare her too much!).

Billy is a VERY energetic boy! Billy would do best with a dog experienced owner that can bring out his potential. Right now, Billy tends to jump up on who ever is walking him and will try to grab the leash with his mouth. He will also bark to get your attention… What he really needs is just a committed owner that can provide him with consistent training, LOTS of exercise, and a stable, happy life. In the right hands Billy will be a great dog! Billy has been neutered and he’s ready to go to his new home! Adoption fee (includes spay/neuter, microchip, rabies vaccine, and a health check from a vet): $120
LuLu is so happy! LuLu is a very sweet pit bull girl that needs a home that can spend lots of time with her (LuLu can get herself into a bit of trouble if she gets bored…). LuLu needs a home with no other dogs, and has lived with cats successfully. She would make a great family dog looking for a big happy bulldog!
Buddy is a brand new arrival, so we are still learning about his personality. We are told that he is ok with female dogs (probably not good for him to go to a home with another male dog), and NOT good with cats. His former owners also said it would be best that he not go to a home with small kids. Buddy has been friendly with all staff members and is also walked by volunteers, he will make a great house dog for someone that is dog experienced and can be a strong leader.Buddy still needs to be neutered, and he will be ready to go to his new home after that surgery is done! Adoption fee (includes spay/neuter, microchip, rabies vaccine, and a health check from a vet): $120
