Adoptable Dogs

The pets pictured are available for adoption. Please be aware that not all of our pets are available for viewing on our website, as our population changes daily with new animals coming in and others going home. We encourage you to visit our Pet Adoption Center. Please visit the Adoption Information webpage for details on the Adoption Procedure and a link to an adoption application. Adopted pets are moved to the Galleries of Adopted Pets.

Dogs that have the Very Important Pet icon Very Important Pet! with their bio have been at our shelter for over one year and they qualify for a reduction in adoption fees. 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 wether 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.

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.

Buddy

Buddy is a 5 year old male mix breed. If we had to guess, due to this ears we would say he was a Rat Terrier mix. Buddy is a spunky little guy who loves to go on walks. Buddy is talkative and like to tell you all about his day. He knows his manners and will "Sit" and "Lie Down." If you are looking for a smaller, fun and entertaining dog Buddy is the one for you.

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.

Chevy

Chevy is a 6 year old Lab mix. Chevy needs an owner who understands he will be on a daily medication for life for his Thyroid issue. As long as Chevy is on his medication he is getting better daily and is doing great. Chevy needs an owner who will go slow with him and understand he was not properly socialized growing up. 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.

Ian

Ian came into the shelter with his sister from a hoarding situation in which neither were 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.

Grace

Grace is a 1½ year old female tri-color mini Aussie. Grace came into the shelter very timid and scared. It took her a bit to warm up to us here. However in a very short amount of time Grace has shown her true colors and is so stinking cute. She wants to be taken on walks now, she jumps up in your lap and wants affection. She gives a ton of kisses and will wag her tail with excitement. Once Grace learned she could trust people again she has truly been wonderful. She will make a fabulous companion to a family looking for a smaller dog. She will want a lot of praise and attention, but that is what we are here to give.

Tawny

Tawny is a 2 year old Hound mix. She is a timid girl who came from a hoarding situation. So she 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, she was just not socialized and does not 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.

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.
