Male, Boxer/Hound

Hey there! My name is Abu and I'm a super sweet, happy boy who loves people so much! I am a good boy who is a very well behaved dog in the home. I'm potty trained and do good in the house when I'm alone, but I do like garbage sometimes so please put that away. :) I'm very loyal and such a good dog. I enjoy going for walks and am good on a leash and in the car. I would love to be your one and only fur friend. I don't like cats at all and I'm not really a fan of other dogs either. Please don't let this discourage you though! I'd be a great best friend for you!

Male, Mastiff/Shepherd

Let's play!! My name is Benny and I'm a big boy who is technically still a pup. I'm super sweet and playful and just want to find a great new home. I love people so much and attach myself to my owners quickly. I get along with some other dogs and don't even mind cats. I'm only about 1.5 years old so I have a lot of puppy left in me. I am a good boy who hopes you'll stop by to meet me!

**My adoption fee has already been paid!

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, 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, Beagle/Purebred

There isn't much cuter than a Beagle! Even us older Beagles are super adorable. My name is Pogo and I'm a happy little man who once had a home, but I'm not sure what happened. I ran off and never found my way back. But, I'm over it and now I'm ready to find my new forever family! I am a smart guy who knows some commands like sit, shake, lay down, and stay. I listen pretty well too! Come and check me out!

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.

Female, Terrier, American Pit 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!
