Male, Retriever, Labrador/Shepherd

Hey there, I'm Alfred. I'm a very friendly dog who loves people so so much that I always want to be with them. I am looking for a home where I can be with my people constantly. Someone who is home-bound would be perfect for me. Otherwise, I will need a home where people are very patient and can work on de-sensitizing me to the stress and anxiety I have when I'm left alone. It will take time, but I'm such a sweet boy and I'm worth it! Please talk to the staff about me and consider adopting me!

Male, Terrier, Pit Bull/Mix

Hey there! My name is Donny and I'm a very special boy who needs a special kind of home. I used to be at a high-kill shelter and was about to be put to sleep, but was rescued just in time. I was super scared, heartworm positive and very afraid of anyone touching me or hands even coming near me. I'm now heartworm free and healthy, but I'm still kind of timid. When you meet me, don't put your hands out, because that scares me so bad. It's better to let me approach you and take my time getting to know you. I will need a person who is patient, willing to come to the shelter to visit with me and get to know me, and someone who has a calm home or is willing to keep me in another room when visitors come over (until they know me as well). I know it seems like a lot to deal with, but I'm so worth it. I'm very sweet, snuggly, get along great with other dogs and cats and just want a loving forever home. Please come and ask about me and consider opening your heart and home.

Female, Boxer/Terrier

Hey there! I'm JoJo and it's so good to meet you! I may be a senior gal, but I'm full of spunk! I love to go for walks and hang out with my people. Do you have other dogs or cats? That's okay because I like them! I lived with kids of all ages and they are great. I'm just a really happy, loving and friendly girl. I'm potty-trained and really well-behaved too! My former owner was so upset about having to give me up and they are hoping I will find the best home ever! I hope you'll consider adopting me and giving me a great forever home.

Female, Terrier, Pit Bull/Retriever, Labrador

Hi! My name is Keeta and I'm a super happy, snuggly and adorable girl. I love to go for walks and play, but I also just love to cuddle with my people and get attention. I'm a very good dog who is looking for a home where I can be your one and only furry friend. Children are okay, but I'm probably a little too active for little ones. Please consider adopting me!

Male, Boxer/Shepherd

Oh my goodness! I'm so excited, I don't even know what to do with myself! I'm still a young boy at only 1.5 years old, but I'm so smart! I love to go for walks, play and snuggle. I get along well with most other dogs and I even lived with a cat and did very well. I'm also potty-trained! Because I'm such an excited guy, I shouldn't be in a home with really young kids, but older kids that can handle me are A-okay. Also because I'm young I may need to learn a few things here or there, but I love to please my people so I will be a quick study. Please consider adopting me!

Female, Chow Chow/Shepherd

If you are looking for a dog who enjoys going for a walk but isn't overly active and a friendly companion to greet you at the end of the day, Phoebe may be the girl for you. She is a beautiful 8-year-old Chow mix who bonds quickly and completely to her human friends. She loves her people so much that she doesn't really want to share them and would like to find a home where she can be your only furry friend. She is a great dog and hopes that you'll consider being her new best friend.

Male, Beagle/Mix

Everyone loves Beagles, right? I'm a good boy who may be a bit older, but I'm very friendly and well-behaved. I can't really hear anymore, but it doesn't bother me at all. I'm great in the house and potty-trained. I love to hang out with my people and I would love to go for a short walk here and there and snuggle up with you the rest of the time. I get along with other dogs too! Please consider adopting a sweet senior.

Male, Boxer/Mix

Hey there, my name is Tyme and I'm a big, happy and strong dog who is waiting to find my forever home. I lived with kids of all ages and did fine with them. I'm a large dog though so I might be a bit too much for little kids. I'm very friendly with people and love to be with them a lot. I love attention and I'm actually quite a big baby. I'm just a really great boy who would love to find a home where I can be your new best friend.

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!
