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!

Hi! My name is Atreyu and I'm a happy boy who is playful and energetic. I am a little shy at first, but once I get to know you I will be your best friend! I'm really looking for a home where I can get plenty of playtime and attention from my people. I love to play frisbee and with toys, love going for walks and just hanging out. I hope you'll consider taking me home!

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.

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, Retriever, Labrador

Hi! Let's go for a walk! My name is Larkin and I'm a happy boy who would love to meet you. I'm not a pup anymore, but I'm still young enough to have pep in my step. I would prefer a home without children and perhaps just a one or two adult home. I would also like to be your only furry friend. I get along with most people, but do prefer men over women. Please come and meet 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?!

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!
