Male, Terrier, Pit Bull/Mix

Hello! Hey there! Come and see me!! My name is King and I'm a handsome boy who adores everyone! I am always happy, energetic and playful. I like some other dogs, but prefer females overall. I am very smart and listen well too! I know some commands like sit, shake with both paws and I take treats gently. I like the water so we can definitely go swimming! I would love to find a more active home with people who can give me the exercise, playtime and snuggles that I love so much. Please spend time with me!

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/Mix

Hi there, I'm Petee, a super sweet and playful dog who loves attention. I really love to play outside and I love going for walks, especially in the rain. I'm a good boy who passed all of my testing with dogs, cats and kids! I may be a little energetic for little ones, but older kids would be just fine. Do you see my weird eye? I can't really see out of that one so I can get startled on that side from movement, but I still hear just fine so I usually know what's coming (plus, I have a good nose!). I hope you'll consider adopting me!

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 likes most other dogs. I love going for walks, playing outside and spending time snuggling up with the people I love. If you are looking for an active, playful and happy girl, please consider spending some time with me!

Male, Bulldog, American/Boxer

Hi, my name is Tango and I'm a big boy looking for a home to call my very own. My perfect home would be one where I can get plenty of exercise and playtime. I would prefer an adult only home or one with older kids who have dog experience. I'm a big boy who has a bit of a stubborn streak so I need a home where I can be taught boundaries. But, I'm also really smart and will learn quickly what is expected of me. Please ask to see me outside of my kennel where I can show you what a good boy I really am.

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!


photo of Walda

Female, Retriever, Labrador/Australian Shepherd

Hi! My name is Walda and I'm certainly a unique looking dog, right? Everyone thinks I'm a Lab/Australian Shepherd mix. I dunno...I'm just a dog! I'm a friendly girl who loves people so much and I would just love to spend time with you and be your best friend. I love to go for walks and play! I am looking for a place where I can be your one and only furry friend. I don't care for any other animal so a house with them would be off limits for me. I hope you'll consider spending some time with me and maybe even adopt me!
