Cooper
Featured Dog!

Cooper is a one year old black and white Lab mix. Cooper is a young dog with a lot of energy and vibrancy. He loves to go on walks and be exercised, in fact it helps him calm down. Cooper is a very cute dog with a gentle heart. He is timid and scared of new people, but if you give him some time to warm up he is a fantastic boy. Cooper is a very smart dog who knows his manners and he loves to play fetch.

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.

Donovan

Donovan is a four year old male Chihuahua. Talk about a sweet face and a spunky attitude. He gets scared easily with people approaching him to fast, which is typical for Chihuahuas. So we just ask that his new owner understand you have to approach him slowly or let him come to you and no small kids. Donovan is such a love bug. He rolls over to have his belly scratched and will jump in your lap to give your face kisses. He loves attention and loves to cuddle.

Heidi

Heidi is a 1 year old female Beagle. She is such a shy timid and sweet girl. It is very hard to look at her adorable face and not fall in love. We got Heidi from a bad situation in which she was severely flea infested causing all her hair to fall out and she looked much like a porcupine. However her hair has started to grow back and she is really taking a liking to getting praises, treats and attention. Heidi is a little shy at first of new situations or loud noises and a lot of activity but give her a few minutes and she will light up the room.

Mystery

Mystery is a 7 year old male black Lab mix. Mystery was an outside dog most of his life, so he was never taught his manners and doesn't do the best on a leash. But he is certainly a smart dog trying to learn. Mystery will not do good in a home with small animals or children and will need a lot of exercise. He is so eager to learn and he loves getting treats, so training should be easy with a little consistency. Give this sweet boy a chance and he will show you he is full of love and affection. Mystery was not properly taken care of before coming to the shelter, so it took a while to figure out what was causing his loss of hair. We have discovered that Mystery has a thyroid issue and will need to be on a daily medication to control this. His hair has started to grow back and he is doing so much better.

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.

Simon

Simon is a two year old, male, Catahoula mix. Simon does know his basic commands and will "Sit" or "Lay Down" but he still has a lot of learning left. He is easily excited and wants to go go go!  Simon is looking for an active family who will get him his proper exercise. Also know that Simon is a loving boy who will be a very loyal family member to any home.
