Female, German Shepherd/Hound

Let's play!! I'm Anders and I'm a sweet young girl with a ton of energy and spunk. I love to be with my people, go for walks and play! I do love kids, but may be a bit too much for younger kids because I like to jump on them. I get along with other big dogs, but no small dogs or cats please. I'm pretty well-behaved and potty trained but may need some time to learn the rules of your house. I'm really smart though so I will learn quickly! If you are looking for a fun, active and playful dog, I could be your new best friend!

Female, Terrier, Pit Bull/Mix

Hey there! Aren't I just the cutest?! My name is Ayda and I'm a silly, spunky and happy girl. I love attention so much! I have lived with kids and did very well with them because I love to play. I may be a bit too much for tiny toddlers because I can knock them over with how excitable I am. I get along with some other male dogs, but please no female dogs or cats for me. I hope you will come and visit and ask to spend some time with me.

photo of Leo photo of Leo

Male, Terrier, Pit Bull/Mix

Hi, my name is Leo! I'm a happy dog who really enjoys meeting new people and going for walks and snuggling. I get along with most other dogs, but prefer females. I really don't like cats though so no female friends for me. I originally came from Saginaw, Michigan where I was passed by many times for adoption. I guess it's because there are just so many dogs there or maybe because I'm not considered super special. But, the shelter people here think I'm just an amazing dog and the U.P. would be a great fit for me! I can't wait to meet you outside of my kennel and hope that you'll be the person that loves me forever and ever.

Male, Terrier, Pit Bull/Boxer

Hi! Do you want to play? My name is Nino and I'm still a young dog at only about 1.5 years old. I love to play and go for walks and I also get along with most other dogs. I don't even mind cats that much! I am an active dog that would best in a home with only older children and people that can keep me busy. I'm potty-trained, but can be a little bit of a chewer if I get too bored, but I'm still a pup! Please ask to see me out of my kennel because I'm a little bit shy behind bars!

Male, Terrier, American Pit Bull/Mix

I may be a little older, but I'm still a spunky, happy and energetic guy. I would be a great dog for someone who is looking for a walking partner that isn't too hyper. I get along with some other dogs and would enjoy a home with or without a canine companion. I love going to walks and I love naps! But, who doesn't love a mid-day snooze?!

Male, Boxer/Terrier

Hello! Do you want to go for a walk? My name is Rico and I love going for walks and playing. I'm a really good boy who loves people a lot. I get along with other female dogs too. I can be a little anxious when I'm alone in the house so I would love a home where I get to spend a lot of time with my people. I lived with kids of all ages and do great with them! I'm active, fun and oh so handsome. I hope you'll consider adopting me.

Female, Retriever, Labrador/Terrier

Hey there, My name is Sassy and I'm a very nice girl. I may be a little shy in the kennel, but please ask to take me for a walk or see me in the yard so I can show you just how great I am. I am an active girl who loves my people so much. I am a protector and want to protect my people and my home so I may be a little unsure of new visitors at first. I am very good with kids and love to play with them. I'm potty-trained and behave well in the house when I'm home alone. I would prefer to be your one and only furry kid, but may do well with a male dog. I hope you'll stop by and visit with me and maybe take me home.

**My adoption fee has already been paid!**

Female, Terrier, Staffordshire Bull/Mix

Tennessee is a super fun, active and playful dog. She loves to go for walks and enjoys playing with toys. Tennessee is very loving and likes to snuggle up with her people after a busy day. She would like to find a home where she can be your one and only furry friend and a place where she can be taken for plenty of walks. Come check her out!

Male, Bulldog, American/Mix

Hey there, my name is Waffles. I'm a big boy at almost 100 pounds so I need a home with a person who can handle me. That being said, I am actually very good on a leash and listen pretty well. I'm a stubborn dog though so an experience dog handler would be best for me. I'm really playful also! I love to go swimming, go for walks and play with toys. My shelter people believe I'm potty trained also because I've never made a mess in my kennel! If you want to see me, please ask to see me outside of my kennel because I get a little intimidated with new people just staring in at me. I am looking for a 1-2 person home with no children. I am protective of the people I bond with. Please consider meeting me and learning more about me!
