If you visit our shelter, look for the VIP logo on the kennels to see which dogs qualify. See one of our adoption counselors for details.


Max
Featured Dog!

Max is a 8 year old male tri-color Beagle. Max is a talker. You walk by and he will tell you all about his day whether you want to hear it or not. He is a cute boy who loves to go outside and on walks. Max loves attention and loves his treats. If there is a smell, Max will investigate it. His nose takes him everywhere, so proper supervision outside is important. Max is fun and carefree. An apartment is probably not the best place for Max. Max is looking for a home with lots of rope toys and lots of affection.

Scarlett

Scarlett is a 6 year old female Treeing Walker Coonhound. She is great with children and other dogs and she loves raw hide chews. She is a sweet girl who loves to give kisses and be affectionate. Her nose will take her anywhere so smells something new, so she will need proper supervision while she is outside. She will need a good amount of exercise so Scarlett is hoping to find an active, fun family to call her own. Scarlett walks great on a leash. She is very calm in demeanor and doesn't make much noise. These are the reasons that Charlie, our back staff employee has picked her to join our VIP list.

Nina

Nina is a 10 month old female Golden mix. Nina is still very much in her puppy stages of needing to learn right from wrong. She has not been worked with before entering our shelter so she needs an owner who understands this and is more patient and willing to teach Miss Nina some manners. Nina is a bit mouthy. She chews on a lot of different things and needs to learn all objects are not toys. Nina has learned how to "Sit." She is focusing very well and is very alert. She is treat motivated and is very much still an energetic cute puppy.

Boulder

Boulder is a 5 year old male red Doberman Pinscher. Boulder is a lot of dog. He needs someone who understands big means he can be a bit clumsy and doesn’t mean to knock into things but accidents can happen. He also needs someone who understands no small animals in the home, no small squeaky toys and no cats. Boulder is a goofball who listens very well. He knows his manners and will do what is asked of him. He also loves treats so praise his good behaviors will a yummy snack from time to time. Boulder is a beautiful sleek dog who walks well on a leash and who is looking for a forever home that has plenty of space for him to flop and jump around and be a happy-go-lucky dog. Proper exercise is also important.

Tawny

Tawny is a 2 year old Hound mix. She is a timid girl who came from a hoarding situation. Tawny will need an owner who understands she needs them to show her new surroundings. She will need to be shown that new places and people are good. She is a very sweet girl who loves getting attention. Tawny was not socialized and doesn't understand the way a normal dog does. It takes her more time and she will need a dedicated owner to teach her toys are fun and that treats are yummy. Tawny wants affection and seeks an owner she can trust to spoil and love her. She loves to go on walks and be outside. Tawny will need proper supervision if left outside, because she can climb fences and her nose takes her anywhere it smells something fun. Tawny has been at the shelter since October 2013.

Sis

Sis is an 8½ month old Heeler mix. Sis was brought in to us in August after being found abandoned and wandering with a severely hurt and swollen back leg that she could not walk on. After the vet checked her over it looked as if she had been hit by a car and left to suffer. Sis had to have a plate and pins put into her leg to help it heal properly but this little girl bounced back very quickly and has healed wonderfully. You would never know she was hurt at one point in time. Sis is very lively and a bit of a goofball. She throws her toys and treats around to herself to play and is working very hard on learning to sit when asked. Sis will need a forever home that will teach her her manners as she is still very much a puppy, and in the puppy play and chew stage. If you are looking for an adorable, fun and energetic dog who will be about medium in size, look no further!

Sandy

Sandy is a 1 year old hound mix. Sandy is a very vocal little girl who will need an owner who understands she was not socialized as much as normal puppies should be. So she can be a bit timid and needs an owner who will take their time with her and not approach her to fast. Sandy is a lively fun girl, she just needs to be taught manners. She is learning how to walk on a leash and is making great progress. Chloe, our new adoption counselor, has taken a liking to Sandy. She feels Sandy has so much to offer and has such a wonderful personality, but due to her upbringing and past, does not show well in her kennel. Chloe says you need to take a little time to get Sandy out of her cage to let her truly shine.

Buddy Boy

Buddy Boy is a 4 year old Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix. Buddy Boy has a very typical Chihuahua personality. He is very alert and will let you know if someone comes to the door. He will be very loyal to his owner and he will talk to get your attention. Buddy Boy is looking for a forever home that understands with his tiny little stature, he gets intimidated easily. Buddy Boy feels overwhelmed if people approach him to quickly or corner him to hunch over him to pick him up. His new owner needs to understand approach slowly and with praises. Buddy Boy will come up to you and will jump in your lap and give kisses galore. He just needs to feel safe first. Buddy Boy is cute and perky and full of spunk.

Ian

Ian came into the shelter with his sister from a hoarding situation in which neither was properly socialized. In a very short amount of time Ian has made a huge turnaround and is a completely different dog. Ian is a 2 year old Hound mix. He is a care free, happy-go-lucky type of dog. He likes to lounge and go with the flow. He will need an owner who understands he was not properly socialized so he gets attached to his care giver quickly and wants to be by their side to feel safe. Ian seems to like other dogs and feel like he is in a pack. He loves going on his daily walks but he isn't big on toys as we are not sure he quite yet knows what they are. Ian has been at the shelter since October 2013.

Chevy loves to play and wags his tail constantly to show how happy he is. He loves to go on walks and cannot wait to find his forever home.
