Male, Miniature Pinscher

Hey there, I'm Dumbledore, a little old min pin who is looking for a new forever home. I was found as a stray and my owner never came to bring me home. Maybe it was because I had bad teeth? Thankfully, I am now being cared for and while I only have 9 teeth left, my mouth isn't hurting me anymore. I'm a very sweet dog who loves to snuggle up with people. I also enjoy going for short walks and taking naps. I hope you will consider giving me a new home.

Male, Shepherd

Hey there! I'm Stubby, a big ol' Shepherd mix with a lot of spunk. I am a social boy who loves to be around people and other dogs. I haven't gotten a whole lot of exercise in my life and I love to eat so I've packed on a few pounds, but I'm working on taking the weight off. I love to go for walks and play outside, but I also enjoy just hanging out and spending time with my human friends. How about we get to know each other?


photo of Tank photo of Tank photo of Tank

Male, Beagle

Cute, chubby Beagle alert! Tank is just the cutest, sweetest and happiest dog around! He is 100% nose to the ground Hound and loves to be outside sniffing and snuffling. Tank is a bigger fella who needs to lose some of that extra weight he's carrying, but he is a very wonderful boy. He is a trained hunter (though he hasn't hunted in quite some time) and we're not sure how his house manners are, but we see how intelligent this boy is and have no doubt that he can learn quickly. Tank would love to find a home where he can get some much needed exercise and love.
