April Senior


April and her family (May and June) were turned in because the owner died.  She appears to be the mother of May.  Her teeth are ROTTED!!!  She is very sweet and only wants to be held.  10 yrs old; dachsi; female; 13lbs; no HW test; 5/25

Apricot


This poor baby has had it hard. She has had many litters. Her tail is broken at the end she has no front teeth.  She needs a new good life.  5/24; 16lbs; hw+; no age; beagle;  Note: She is a dog that roams the neighborhood. She was happy to see us this morning (day after intake). Has a high lap potential. She will duck if you reach for her too quickly. 

B Pups x 2- VideoMay



They are happy, playful pups that were brought in as strays.  5/6; 5 mos old;  hound mix; Bailey (female, black, 33lbs).  Bucky (male, tan, 34lbs)

Barrett- VideoMay



He is such a sweet boy! He was turned in today by someone who said their son left him at their house. He just wanted to sit in my lap and give me kisses. He was very gentle and calm during intake.   hw- ; 5/4; 1-2 yrs old; 39lbs; male; lab mix



He's a sweet boy. He's always so excited to see me when I go in the intake. He is so so skinny and pitiful looking but all he wants is love. He's a very happy, friendly, sweet boy.  His body is always wiggling!!  Part of an animal cruelty case.  Came in with Elvira and Frodo.    38lbs (emaciated); male; HW+;  6yrs old; bull mix; 3/30

More about me May 1: All dressed up with nowhere to go! Poor Bilbo was hoping putting on his nicest outfit would get the attention of his forever home today, but no such luck. This sweet boy just had to go back into his kennel and hope that tomorrow will be his day to get out. Bilbo came into the shelter with absolutely no meat on his bones and we all just felt so bad for him. Even in his pitiful state he's always kept his spirits up and is determined not to let being stuck at the shelter bring him down. His favorite thing is going for walks, and he just loves to explore and smell all the new smells around him. On our walk today we tried to meet some kitties but Bilbo wasn't very interested in them, even when they ran away. He just wanted to continue on his way. He was happy to meet a small dog today, though and greeted her so sweetly. Bilbo is ready to pack his bags and move on to a better life full of lots of treats and we are hoping that day is on its way very soon.


Brought in by Darl AC as a stray. Handsome, friendly, loves human attention. Wearing red collar, HW negative.  12/1/2016; male; 3-4 yrs old; spaniel mix; 41 lbs.  Volunteer note: very energetic, friendly and happy, loves to explore, loves belly rubs and running.

Bogey- sponsored for pull fees- VIDEOApril VIDEOAprilA VIDEOAprilB
Note:  The dog barking in VideoB is a little terrier and NOT Bogey.



Handsome hunk Bogey would love to wrap you in a big bear hug and give you some kisses.  This dad to Sweetie's pups has had to say goodbye to his wandering days and now he is ready for a more settled life where he can count on eating regular and having a family of his own to count on.  Bogey met our playful male Brendon who immediately greeted him with paws to the face, and Bogey reacted well.  He can be a food hog so he should be fed separately from other dogs.  He had his first taste of peanut butter during his photo shoot and thought it was pretty special.  Bogey is a big strong boy who would probably be a better match for a family with older children. Note: Sweet. No cats please!  Dad to Sweet Pea's pups. 12/11/2015; hw+; male; 1-2 yrs old; 67lbs; Treated for HW's 8/1/2016

Update Feb 2: Bogey is a big boy at 80 pounds.  Growing up in an outside kennel with minimal human contact and little or no daily stimulation/activity,  Bogey will likely tell you he is quickly trying to make up for lost time!  Since his "freedom gate" has been flung far and wide open, he can be a bit rambunctious but it's just sheer delight at all the new opportunities available to him.  He can be a little stubborn too.  He’s just so glad to have some freedom to run and be a dog, that he can hardly contain himself.  We are working on his discipline, but he’s a young dog, so he is strong and has a good bit of energy.  He walks well on the leash for me and has gotten along pretty well with my personal dogs.  He loves to run and play chase.  He did not do well when cat tested at the shelter, so I think that would not be a good situation.  He is a good boy and certainly deserving of a wonderful home. 



Update April 4: Bogey is a 3-4 year old, male, lab mix.  He has been with me since January after I was able to get his family to surrender him to me.  I became aware of Bogey in the midst of chasing Sweet Pea.  Bogey lived in the neighborhood near the church where Sweet Pea was staying.  He was kept in a 10x10 kennel by his family for most of his life.  They would sometimes let him out, or he would get out, and he would roam the neighborhood.  When Sweet Pea was in heat, he found her and was the only dog I am aware of who mated with her.  I found out where his family lived and when I could get my hands on him, I took him home.  Sweet Pea moved from the church to behind Bogey’s house to be near him.  When I saw the condition he was living in, I began bringing food and water for him each day.  Their next door neighbor shared with me that they had been caring for him for a while.  She said a teenager in the home was his owner.  She told me that they never spent time with him and barely fed him.  She talked to the young boy many times about giving him better care, but he never did.  She was helpful in getting the boy’s mother to surrender Bogey to me. 
 
That’s his back story, now a little about him.  He has settled down a lot since we’ve had him.  Before he saw the kennel as a jail that he hated to go in.  He would roll on his back and I would literally have to drag him back in there.  Now, he will go in with just a verbal command because he knows he gets free time.  He loves to run and plays well with my personal dogs.  My dogs chase and bark at him and he never retaliates.  He just takes it as play and has never shown any aggression even though my guys can get rough with him.  I would be comfortable leaving him out in the yard all the time with my dogs, but I have an older girl who is blind.  He gets so excited running and playing that he isn’t careful around her.  He scares her when he bumps her running by, so I just let him out when I’m out there with them so I can watch her.  He will sit for me and gives me his paw.  He walks really well on the leash and rides well in the car out of the crate.  He meets people very well and has met all of my dogs with no problems.  He was a little too curious around the cats at the shelter, so I would say no cats.  He does have a few bad manners from not much interaction and training when younger, but he seems teachable.  He jumps up on me sometimes when I first let him out, but after a few minutes of running off his energy, he settles down nicely and listens to my directions.  He likes to chase and retrieve a ball or rope.  He loves to be petted, kissed, hugged and loved on.  We don’t have any issues with feeding him with my other dogs.  He has been an outside dog most of his life, so he would have to be house trained.


Brooke


She is a sweet girl who has owner surrendered. She loves everyone and is just such a happy girl.   HW+; 5/15; female; corgi mix; 43lbs; 5.5yrs old

Buddy -sponsored for vetting fees- VIDEO VIDEOMarch23



I'm a lover not a fighter.  I'm struggling with some skin issues right now so I look kind of scabby.  My person died months ago and a kind neighbor, Benjamin kept coming to my home to care for me.  He gave me oils for my skin and kept me fed and watered, and boy, did he LOVE me so.  Benjamin then got evicted from his home and when he came for me I was gone.   The good news is that Animal Control picked me up and told me I would be ok.  My interim care giver knows I am in good, caring hands right now and while he would have liked to bring me home, he simply does not have the means to really help restore my health to 100% and keep me long term.   He is keeping an eye on me now and promises to visit me at the shelter.  He will tell you and the staff will also tell you, I am one the most friendly faces out here and that I am a sweet, gentle natured fellow.   Hoping you too will come on by to see for yourself.  42 lbs; 2/6; male; 2-4 yrs old; hw - (Staff named him Simon BUT he knows his name of Buddy).

Buffy


She has what I think is a broken leg. Very sweet happy dog. She was brought in by ac as a stray.  rat terrier; female; 5/25; 2 yrs old; 25lbs; no HW test



Buttercup is a strong active girl with lots of pep in her step.  She is very good natured and eagerly greets strangers.  She loves being petted.  Buttercup is looking for an active family that enjoys the great outdoors and thinks older kids to play with would be super!  No cats!  Hw neg.  54lbs; 2 yrs old; lab mix; female; march intake

Caleb



He's a sweet boy that came in from AC. He is very submissive and spent a while napping in the corner of intake. He walked well on the leash and took treats very gently. He was wearing a choke chain that was very very tight and has left marks on his neck. He also has hairloss that appears to be from fleas but I made a vet from to be sure. He also has a wound on his ear that was cleaned.   hw-; 5/5; mixed breed; 2 yrs old; 54lbs; male

Cassie - sponsored for pull fees- VideoMay14 VideoMay14A
New Series of Pictures October.  Check out the progression!



Update Oct 18: Cassie is doing great with an obvious increase in energy. She is still weak but trying. Today she wanted to lay around outside and soak up the sun. She is eating very well and prefers for me to switch her can food flavors lol My neighbors puppy comes and visit . Cassie seems very interested in him and not bothered at all. She is the sweetest dog ever.  Very skinny. Really sweet and friendly. AC stray. HW+ ; 10/13; 19lbs; 2-3 yrs old

Update Oct 21: No cats yet but she is very sweet with the neighbor's puppy. Other dogs come around and she just looks at them. Cassie is still weak so kinda hard to tell right now.


Update Nov 28: Cassie is ready to find a home of her own. She is very sweet-one of the sweetest I have ever fostered. Wants to be a lap dog. She does chase cats to play with them but she's too rough with them and will hurt them when she does. She's good with kids though.

Update Dec 14: Cassie came in as a stray starved almost to death. The night I got her she almost died and the first week were touch and go but she made it! Now she is a very happy girl!  She's very playful and silly girl, loves her toys! She is crate and potty trained. She is good with other dogs as long as they r 20lbs or over bc she can play a little rough. She's not good with cats. She does well with other people and kids. 

Update Jan 24: Cassie thinks she's a lap dog. She'll try to get every single part of her body  in ur lap. So someone that wants a snuggle dog. She loves to play outside but she'd rather b inside on the couch with u. Having another playful doggie sister or brother would b great bc she loves to play with other dogs.   She's good with kids but when she plays she sometimes knocks them down. With some manner training that would b easy to fix. So not small children. She's not good with dogs under 20lbs or cats. She plays too rough. She played lots with my 20 lb Boston. They got along great and they cuddled when they got tired of playing. 


Update March 13: Cassie has come such a long way from the emaciated girl who came into the shelter.  At fist we were not even sure she would survive.  But now she is looking great and even though she is much loved in her foster home, she is ready to find a home of her own.  She was not really into playing dress-up for her photo shoot, preferring to go au naturel, but she was a good sport about it.  Cassie is a lovable expressive girl with an adorable underbite.  She likes puppies and loves to wrestle with the big dogs.  She tends to play rough so she is probably better matched to dogs of her own size or larger.  She never has to be asked twice to go for a ride in the car, where she likes to call shotgun.  Cassie is sweet and loving and loyal to her people.  Please help Cassie find her forever family.


Update Oct 17: This is Cassie before and after. Even when she wasn't able to walk she still wagged her tail and gave kisses to everyone that helped her. After months of recuperation from malnutrition and dehydration she transformed into a beautiful girl. Cassie is HW positive. She's crate and potty trained. She does not like cats. Cassie wants to be a lap dog and prefers to be let out to potty and come right back in to lay on the couch. She's one of the sweetest, happiest fosters that I've ever had. 








Is anyone looking for a perfect, playful pup? Well, Chuck will definitely fit the part! Chuck loves to play and was so happy to run around showing off his new toy. He showed off how handsome he is for the camera and even gave a few kisses to the camera lady. He was so excited to be getting all the attention and was just wanted to tell everyone what a good boy he is. He even met some kitties and said they were okay with him and was a perfect gentlemen when meeting a small dog. Chuck is ready to cuddle his way into the hearts of his new family and get all the play time he can handle. He just hopes they have a few of those fun toys there too!  Note: Ac stray.  He would not let me do intake unless we cuddled first.  Happy boy.   Very sweet boy. Absolutely love this little guy. 41lbs; male; 4/13; bull mix; 3 yrs old; HW -

Mini Update May 4: Great dog! Very easy going.  Got along with all dogs last night. Was very patient with everyone and just enjoyed being out with us. 




Great boy. Currently suffering from happy tail.  pit mix; 3/20; male; hw-; 3 yrs old; 60lbs

Cole -safe


Ac stray, Cole is a mellow old man who was happy to be off the road and in the cool air. He did intake well and sat for a good brushing. If no one comes for him he should be an easy dog to find a home for, he can sit and wants to be at your feet. Cole is thin under all that fur.  6 yrs old; HW+; 5/17; 55lbs; retriever mix; arrived neutered

Conner



He has an old neck injury (embedded collar) that looks almost healed.  He is a happy friendly boy. I'm sure he got out from some where, he is very dirty. Found by a volunteer;  hound mix; 38lbs;  HW-; 1 yr old; 5/17; male



Lookie! Lookie! It's a dog named Cookie! Our sweet little Cookie was just so happy to see everyone today she could hardly contain herself. She wanted to let everyone know just how much she loved them. Cookie had so much fun getting all dressed up for pictures and the treats were just a bonus! Cats may be a little too exciting for our girl but she has been a wonderful friend to her buddy Snoopy. She loves making new dogs friends and just wants to play so bad! She said she would love to bust out of this place and into somewhere where she can run and play as much as she wants, and also get lots of cuddles and kisses. 


He is a super sweet boy. He was kind of shy but was tolerant of us and started to warm up to us. All he really wanted was to lay down and relax. He has demodex and I made a vet form to ask how we should proceed with treatment and for his eyes to be looked at.   hw+; 3/23; male; 45lbs; 2-3 yrs old; lab mix. Med Note 3/29: mild entropian in right eye - apply neopolybac in right eye every 12 hours, may resolve as the skin improves. Video Note:  Dale was not feeling well during his video.  Turns out he was running a fever.  :(

Delieca - VideoApril



This girl was sooo sweet.  She just soaked up all the attention she could get.  She was very intimidated by the camera noise (and the squeaker) so she got some moral support from her BFF Margaret while she got her pictures done.  Note: Ac turned in as a stray. She is very sweet but afraid, she is someone's dog. I love her.  HW -; 4/13; bull/lab; 1-2 yrs old; female; 57lbs

Dingo


48lbs; male; 5 yrs old; HW+; 1/27.  Friendly, low energy level. Good with other dogs. 
Update from Bridge staff: He is really a very sweet guy. I am consistently amazed by how thoughtful he is regarding his size and he is never, ever an issue coming back to his kennel when I am done cleaning, watering and getting his food ready......he smiles when he runs back...I love that about him!!!! 

Dink- Senior


I arrived bloated with worms and dirty from diarrhea.  The nice folks who have been caring for me cleaned me up, helped rid my body of the horrible worms and today,  my coat is shiny and sleek and my belly lean and firm.  Folks say I'm a sweet old guy who's mild mannered and grateful.   I have a young child who comes with her mom to feed and care for me here at Bridge and boy, do I enjoy him!    I have a grand time when I am let out of my kennel to run the dog yard.  The other dogs bark and jump with excitement when they see me and I generally pay them no mind as I continue on my happy way sniffing and smelling and simply enjoying my freedom.  On occasion, I might greet the other dogs nose to nose through the kennel fencing to get the most of my free time. I'll tell you I am definately a favorite of at least one of the Bridge workers.  She saves me for last on her kennel run detail as she wishes to give me lots of extra time and attention and love.   With the scars over my back and head and my worn and missing teeth,  it's clear I've had a tough life.  I don't let that slow me down, I hold no grudges and honestly, I have the most pleasant disposition.  Hoping perhaps YOU might be able to open your home to me, Dink.    4/6; Stray who arrived at a local recycling center.  Est 7 yrs old; male;  HW+;  May or may not be a candidate for HW treatment due to an unhealthy heart.  May need prednisone longterm and heart meds to keep him at his best.  Vet notes: xray shows diffuse bronchointerstitial pattern - suspect cardiomyopathy. 53lbs

Donald


He was turned in today by the fire dept. He has a collar and good manners.  Donald is a happy dog who enjoyed riding in the truck with the fireman.  47lbs; male; 2 yrs old; 5/25;  HW+; lab

Earl- Sponsored for pull fees



Earl is a middle aged guy who is a little rough around the edges.  I don't think he has ever had the chance to enjoy the finer things in life or get much training in the social graces.  He is a very strong puller and straight ahead on the walk.  He likes to make tracks.  He is not extremely outgoing but he does enjoy being petted and when he gets warmed up he gives kisses and gets wiggly.  Earl needs a patient, soft-hearted soul who is willing to spend some time training to teach an old dog new tricks and earn all the love and trust he has to give.  Give an older guy a chance, won't you?  No cats for me please!  Note: A/C stray. Friendly.   HW+ (treated!); 3-5 yrs old; 46lbs; male; 11/21/15






HW pos. Very very sweet. Really wants your attention and he very gentle. AC STRAY; 10/25; 4-5 yrs old; 47lbs; male.  Med note:  left front weight bearing, lame, swelling at right carpus, xray revealed healing fracture of distal ulna, fracture with bullet of metatarsals - TREAT with strict crate rest.  11/.  Good choice for for a female dog looking for a companion.  

Bio for local paper: Attention Monger!  If you loving being center stage with your pet, than Edward is the pet for you!   Folks LOVE Edward.  Super friendly and always eager to dance for a treat or give you some special nuzzles,  Edward is super sweet and very gentle natured.   Ready to break out of doggy jail...AKA...the shelter,  Edward knows how to get the pet job done and hopes soon you'll come on by and let him WOW you with his southern charm. 




female; 12/14; 61 lbs ; hw+; Friendly! 

Update Jan 22:  We almost lost Ellen.  Found coughing up blood in her kennel,  we rushed her to the vet to stabilize her.  She rec'd IV's, antibiotics and a full panel of blood work was done on her.  Good news is that her kidneys and liver and all working well BUT she is in stage 3 of heartwom disease so her lungs and heart are struggling. 

Update Jan 26: Ellen has been moved to a foster home where she is looking and feeling SO much better.  Her foster home is loaded with an assortment of other dogs of all sizes, ages and temperments.  She is not a candidate for immiticide shots so she will be placed on the slow-kill method to help rid her heart of the deadly worms.  Foster update: "Ellen is dog friendly and doesn't have any food aggression with people or dogs. She's been out with all of my dogs, big and small. Her favorite is Tiger (senior, female hound mix). She does not like to be crated or gated and is doing ok with free roam of the house with Tiger. She thinks Tiger is her mom, and follows her everywhere."


Update Feb 1: Ellen is a love.  She is a mellow, easy-going girl who loves to be with people and gets along with other dogs.  Because she broke out of her crate and integrated herself with the rest of my pack I have been letting her have run-of-the-house at night and when I am at work.  She is not destructive and is doing well with housebreaking.  Ellen is happiest sitting right beside you, peppering you with kisses and getting her belly rubbed.  She is content to sleep on a chair or dog bed beside your desk while you work and she loves relaxing in the warm sun.  She should be fine with kids as she does not get rattled easily.  I don't have a cat here right now to test her but I really don't think she would mind them either.  She just has that "anything goes" personality that should help her fit in most anywhere.

Ember Pup- VideoMay



She's very sweet and just wanted someone to give her attention. She was turned in by someone that had too many dogs.  They had had her for a month.   hw-; 6 mos old; 28lbs; lab/hound mix; 4/20

Emily


Emily is the girl on fire!! Having three legs is not slowing her down a bit. This urber friendly lab mix just wants to have fun.  Good with other dogs.  She is just waiting for the right person to be her forever side kick. Note: Found tied up at abandoned property with an embedded collar.  Emily's leg had an old break which could not repaired. We had it amputated and she is getting around like the real champion that she is.  4/10; HW+ ; July 2 pics.   Treated for HW's on 10/25.

More about me Sept: Only has three legs but didn't slow down at all. (Full body pic shows her three legs.) Strong and loves cuddles. 

Update Oct 2: Emily is a real good girl with a moderately high Energy level. With more attention and chances to release the energy, I think it would go down. As far as how she gets along with other dogs, she is pretty good. Twice she has gotten out of her pen recently and runs and plays with the dogs at our house and then goes over to the neighbors to play with their dogs. The only dog she has had a problem we had is one of ours who gets in her face.





Enoch came in as a stray. He showed up as a stray with best friend, Hazel and stayed with his temp home fro a few weeks till coming into the shelter.  He is very loving but unsure for intake. We gave him the name Enoch because he's brave. I have bruises from his happy tail.   He did great on his walk with a volunteer today and was a perfect walking buddy. 38lbs;  HW+; 4/24; collie; 1 yr old

Evan 



He's super sweet and so happy about everything. He was brought in by AC.   HW+; 3/31; male; 3 yrs old; 50lbs; hound mix
