Male, Retriever, Labrador/Mix

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!


photo of Barnacle

Male, Beagle/Mix

Barnacle is a happy Hound who loves to go for walks and put that nose to the ground. He is your typical Beagle: upbeat, personable, loves to bay and be around people. Barnacle gets along with most other dogs and would really appreciate a home where he can get daily play/walk time. He's a really good boy who would do well in almost any home.

Female, Retriever, Labrador/Pointer, German Shorthaired

Here is Boo! She is a very active and energetic girl who is looking for a home where there is a lot of activity for her. Boo does not show well in her kennel so please ask to see her out of it (some dogs, like Boo, feel intimidated behind bars). Boo would do best in a home with no other dogs. She also needs an ADULT ONLY household. We'd love to talk to you more about Boo and have you meet her!

Cady Lou

Female, Mixed Breed, Large (over 44 lbs fully grown)/Mix

Sweet senior lady alert! Cady is a gorgeous 10-year-old Rotti mix who is a little shy right now because this is all new to her and she's not sure what's going on. She came to the shelter after some sever medical issues took her out of her home. We took care of her and got her all healthy again and now she is looking for her new home! Cady would appreciate a quieter home and would be great for a retired person/couple who want a low key dog in their lives. She appreciates some outside time and short walks, but is so happy as a couch potato or just lying on a cozy bed by your feet. She's an adorable, sweet girl and we hope you will give her the chance and life she deserves.

Female, Terrier, American Pit Bull/Mix

Look at how pretty I am!

My name is Mia and I'm almost seven years old. I'm such a pretty dog who is generally calm. I'm a good girl who is potty trained and well-behaved in the house. I'm a good listener too! I really want to be your only furry friend though because other animals just aren't much fun for me. I have lived with kids of all ages and do well with them. My former owner called me a "big loving baby." I am looking for a home where I can be with people that love me, get some walks and playtime and have some snuggle time at the end of the long day. Please spend time with me and consider taking me home. I really miss having a family of my very own.

Male, Terrier, American Pit Bull/Mix

Let's Be Friends!
Look how cute I am! My name is Remie and I'm a 6-year-old Lab/Pit mix. I have lived with kids, another female dogs and a cat and I did great with them! I would have to meet any other dogs that I might live with though because I am pretty picky about who I like. I'm an active boy who loves to go for walks and spend time with my people. I'm potty trained and well-behaved in the house as long as I have some toys to play with when you're gone. I'm an outgoing dog who really hopes you will give me a chance at a great new home.

Male, German Shepherd/Coonhound, Redbone

Ronnie is such a goof! This very leggy boy is about 1.5 years old and so silly. He loves to go for walks and play. He is smart, gets along with most other dogs and cats and would be a great new friend. Ronnie would prefer a home with no small children because he just doesn't care for them that much. He bonds quickly and completely with his humans and the German Shepherd in him makes him a great protector, while the Hound in him makes him comical.

Female, Mixed Breed, Medium (up to 44 lbs fully grown)/Mix

Hi, I'm Trina and I'm a 1.5 year old mixed breed dog (no idea what I am!). I came to CCHS after my owner was unable to care for me anymore. I'm such a good girl! I listen very well and am very smart. I'm potty trained and love to play with toys and go for walks. I'm a little shy and submissive, but I just need someone to help me build up some confidence. I'm not a fan of other dogs so please let me be your only furry friend. I can live with kids as long as they are over 10 years old and will treat me right. Please come and spend some time with me and take me for a walk. I know we can be the best of friends and I hope you will consider taking me home.

Male, Retriever, Labrador/Pointer, German Shorthaired

Want Some Kisses?

Hello! My name is Zooby! I'm a 6-year-old Lab/Pointer mix. I really love people so much and want to find a home where I can have a lot of interaction with my people. I am not a fan of many other dogs, but I might be okay with a female dog (we'd have to meet). I enjoy going for walks and playing. I'm potty trained and am a good listener also! I would prefer a home without small kids, but older kids that have learned respect for animals and can play nicely with me would be great! Please come and check me out.
