This lovely two tone girl has love and energy to spare!   A skilled leash walker who eagerly stepped out of her kennel, she nicely dialed down once in our front field and did a wonderful time greeting other dogs with a steady wagging tail.   A great choice for a family with slightly older kids,  she would be wonderful sharing her space with other dogs (she tested well with both male and female dogs) and possibly even cats (she sniffed and walked away from our cat habitats).   Alexa is a friendly, playful gal who would be perfect as a hiking or running companion! Note:  Alexa was brought in as a stray by animal control. She is very well behaved and friendly.   HW-; hound/lab mix; 1-2 yrs old; 42lbs; 3/5


Andre was brought in as a stray by animal control. He walks well on a leash and is friendly and playful.  HW+; 67lbs; 2-3 yrs old; bull mix; 4/16

Angel was turned in as a stray. She is very scared but warmed up enough to do intake.  HW+; 45lbs; 2-3 yrs old; setter mix; 4/6

Anita has been to 2 off sites events.  She's fantastic.   She is such a laid back girl I didn't feel like we had all we needed to help her.  She was a big hit today.  Such a sweet and loving girl.  It was cold out and she was more than happy to lay next to her handler, bundled up in a blanket.  Really sweet girl.   Note: Anita is a sweetheart who was picked up by animal control. She is HW negative.  Terrier mix; 54lbs; 1-2 yrs old; 1/2. No cats for me please!

Baby and Bossy Chi's - VideoWithDelilah  VideoBridge

Baby (16.4lbs, female), Boss (18lbs, male)

Baby (7-8 yrs old) was dropped off as an owner surrender with her son,  Boss. She is a little timid but still well behaved.  Bossy (4-5yrs old) is a little timid but still friendly.  both hw-;  chi mix; 3/14

Update March 15: Owner is senior citizen with lots of health issues and can no longer care for her pets.  Bossy male 4-5 yrs approximately. According to owner has flea issue/allergy (large sand fleas in her area). Very itchy and whines/cries thru the night, hair thin, chewed hair off tail. Have been treating with her son's help but with her burn injuries she just can't manage.   Baby 7-8 yrs approximately. Has had at least 7 litters. According to owner, Baby doesn't have the flea allergy.  Bossy is the son of Baby....they are not brother and sister, they are Mom and son. According to the owner they can be separated, not bonded to where they have to be rehomed together.   They are both good with cats and also kids!   They have shared their prior home with multiple cats and have experience with kids as well. 

More about Bossy March 24: I  kissed a girl I just met.   She lured me in with her trusting smile and shiny coat and then before you knew it,  we were friends and we kissed.  I'm pretty skilled at meeting other dogs I don't know and folks will say I'm pretty polite in my approach with them.   A charming, friendly fellow in meeting new humans, I'm a skilled leash walker with a slow and steady pace.  I did a nice job meeting cats at the shelter and perhaps my preference is to share my new home with slightly older human kids. 

More about Baby March 24:  I'm feeling a little nervous here at the shelter (folks say that can be expected especially from a small Chi like me!), but I'm still doing a great job in meeting new humans and other dogs.  Polite in meeting other dogs and "interviewing" well with humans, I'm comfortable on a leash and paid no attention to cats on site.  My energy level is described as steady and slow and perhaps slightly older kids would best suit my style. 

Update April 16: Neither act old at all...and toy breeds can live into the late teens. I sent Kim a video of them coming out of their kennel when they arrived at Bridge. No hesitation...Baby (the mom) even giving me a kiss in the face immediately.   They are house-trained and have yet to poop in their pen, though they only go out twice between 6:30am and NOON, and then twice between 4:30 and 6:00 pm. If a person liked chi's , he/she would love these.

My book is wide open!  I'm a happy, exuberant guy who loves to play, play and yes, play some more.  Got dogs?  Please, let them meet me and I will teach them a wonderful thing or two about playing!  Now,  once I have some play time out of my system,  you should see how wonderfully I dial down and eagerly wait for some lovin' from YOU!   Cats seemed a bit too tempting for me so a cat free home would be best for me and slightly older kids would also suit my style in part due to my size and my wanting to share my love with them!   Volunteers called me a "Great Dog" and honestly, does this tag line get any better?  Note: Baloo was brought in as a stray by animal control. He is very playful and friendly. He walks well on a leash.  75lbs; 2-3 yrs old; shep mix; 3/19;  HW-

Bam Bam was picked up as stray around Dec 25, 2017.  Shortly thereafter, he was rushed to the vet as he was found listless in his kennel.  Turns out, he had swallowed a corn on the cob which clogged his intestine.  Bam Bam is super sweet and friendly and has made a 100% recovery.   He is good with cats.  Checking on dogs!  More to come!

Baxter Pup

Baxter was brought in by animal control. He is shy and scared and would benefit by being in a foster home.  26lbs; 3-4 mos old; lab mix; 3/28

Beatrice Mom + Pups

Beatrice was turned in as an owner surrender with her litter of 4 puppies. The owner said he could no longer take care of her due to too many dogs. She's very friendly and sweet.  HW-; 37lbs; 2-3 yrs old; shep mix; 4/19

Bella Senior

She has been fine with cats and is very sweet.  Bella is a little scared of other dogs, but has met my dogs.  The owner said she can nip at little kids but she was excellent with my kids (ages 9 and 11).  She loves to take walks and car rides.  Housetrained. She has several 'fatty tumors' -- one large one on her chest and at least one other that I saw on her foot.  She told me the vet said they were nothing to worry about; they don't seem to cause her any pain. O/s; HW-; 20lbs; 12 yrs old; Bichon mix; 4/14


Ben was turned in as a stray. It took him a little while to warm up to us and he is still a little timid but he's still sweet.  Hw-; 41lbs; 1-2 yrs old; lab mix; 3/31

Bernadette Pup- VideoWith Dublin

Bernadette is a 5 month old fawn blue nose bully mix. She is sweet as can be with people, but she is dog selective--yes, at only 5 months old and 15-20 lbs. She is very petite.  In the video I call her "tan with a smoky gray nose." At that time I didn't know she was a blue-nosed fawn. A vet tech at my vet's office told me this color is very desirable. I didn't know.  She is in foster with me because the shelter asked me to evaluate her. She is beautiful. She plays well with 5 of my bully mixes. My two males correct her, and she listens. My three female bullies play with her. She has shown aggression with some of my other dogs.  She came in as a single puppy and had ringworm, so she was hanging out in the office of our boarding facility while she was being treated for ringworm.  The video and the pic shows her with Dublin, a blind/deaf senior she snuggled with while in the office. About 3 weeks ago, they said she began picking on Dublin. That's when I took her.  I was surprised when I checked her teeth and saw that she is close to 5 months but still so petite. I can scoop her up easily with one arm, so I know she can't be more than 20 lbs, but I can weigh her to be sure.   1/27


Blacky was turned in as an owner surrender with her sister Brownie. They are both skittish being here but still friendly.  HW-; 47lbs; 1-2 yrs old; lab mix; 2/20

More about me March 18: Blacky is a very calm, sweet, low energy black Lab mix. She was timid and would not walk on leash til she saw Erin, the med tech with whom she is familar. Then she perked up and trotted over to her. I had to carry her back to her kennel. After she saw Brownie, she practically leaped out of my arms and the girls frolicked in their kennel together. 

Blaze- VideoWithMyrtleDec -Sponsored for HW treatment and pull fees

He has a lump under is right armpit and I made a vet form for him. He is a super sweet goofy boy. I absolutely adore him. He just wants everyone to love him and be with the most people that he can. The person said he was not his dog and had been there a week. He is altered. He was in the office with cats and the puppy and paid them no attention. He just wanted all the people to love him.   HW+; male; lab mix; 6/2/2017; 54lbs; 2-3 yrs old. Med Update: large scabs under front leg - 1 cm 'lump' feels like scar tissue - just monitor

More about me June 29: Blaze is the "Class Clown"...performing for treats is his specialty.  He's very smart and easily trainable.  He has a young spirit with high energy, so an active family with older children would be an ideal match.  Blaze craves attention but is also capable of dishing out the love. His likes:  dog treats, to be the center of attention, and stealing cat food.  Good with cats and dogs tested!  Extra Note:  Blaze is a fun loving dog who gets along well w/ roommate Myrtle.  He recently also met another large, super friendly male and he was great with hims as well.  He is curious about what humans are doing and interacts freely.

Update March 28: Bubba roamed a neighborhood just outside of Hartsville getting along with all the people and animals there. Some guys at a garage fed him and petted him. Once he was hit by a car, they brought him to/had him picked for the humane society to help.  Bubba gets along with Emily and Max at Bridge. He and Emily play and run really hard. I think there are others, but I am not sure who.  Bubba is one of the most positive dogs that I have ever seem. He always wags and comes to people as if he is meeting a new best friend.

Blue Boy- Video Video 

What a handsome, playful boy! Found roaming and playing with the neighborhood dogs, Blue Boy's owner never came to claim him. He is great with people and just wants to play with other dogs.  Note: Blue Boy was found near Flinns Rd in Hartsville. He is very sweet & friendly.  HW+; 56lbs; 1-2 yrs old; bull mix; 11/24

Update March 8: Blue Boy really is a great fellow and is about a medium energy guy.  He loves attention and just wants to be petted and rubbed.  While at the shelter he was around other dogs and showed no desire to do anything other then play. I also took him past cats in a habitat and some loose in the yard and he was not interested in them at all. He is a very loving fellow and thrives on attention.


Bo was brought as a stray by animal control. He is a little timid but still friendly.  HW+; 36lbs; 1-2 yrs old; lab/catahoula mix; 3/13

Bobby Teen

Foster Update Feb 21: He’s doing well. It’s been up and down for him. He has hours where he is out and engaged. But he is still mostly reserved and getting acclimated to being in a house. He couldn’t be any sweeter. He is definitely going in the right direction but still needs more time. He tolerates being touched but would avoid all human contact still if it was up to him. I have confidence he will get there and be a great pet. He walks beautifully in a leash and loves going potty in the woods. (When frightened, still loses control of bowels) Other than when scared, he is completely potty trained. He has learned to love his crate (this was hard for him) and this week started chewing on his first Nylabone.  He is taking food from our hands now with caution. Of course, he loves Danko (resident Rottie).  3-4 mos old; 9/5/2017; Sibling is Brad and Bruno.

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, 2016: 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, 2017: 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.

Update January 2018:  it is my heart’s desire is to find Bogey a wonderful home.  He has been with me in foster for almost a year and a half now.  I became aware of him in my attempt to catch a dog that had been dumped near the church where I work.  He had a family but they were not giving him very good care.  I was able to get them to surrender him to me and we treated him for his heartworms.  He did very well with that and is the picture of health now.  He is about 4-5 years old and about 70 pounds of solid muscle.  He is a big boy and needs a family who can appreciate his size.  He is very smart and can unlatch our gate quicker than I can.  We have to keep latches in the gates to keep him from that.  We’ve also had challenges with him jumping our fence.  I’ve told you all of the bad things, because I believe in being completely transparent.  Now, the good things!  He is a sweet, loving boy.  He has a soft side and wants nothing more than to be with his person.  When I first let him out of his kennel, he does what I call “zoomies” all around the yard.  He loves playing and running with my other dogs.  Once he runs some, then he settles down and what you get is a super sweet dog who is very smart and wants nothing more than to please me.  He loves all people and does well with children.  He does not do well with cats.


Bonnie was turned in as an owner surrender. The owner's landlord wouldn't let her keep her. She is very sweet and friendly. She walks well on a leash and has good manners.  hw-; 34lbs; 1-2 yrs old; lab/bull mix; 4/9

Boomer- Video -sponsored for pull fees

Boomer is a big ole hound in need of a lot of TLC.  He is very thin and depleted looking with sores/masses on all four legs/feet.  These may just be pressure sores from concrete or from licking but should probably be seen by vet.  He is probably not a good match for cats as he was singing them quite a tune during photo time. Note: Boomer was dropped off as a stray. He doesn't seem to like cats but is fine with people and other dogs.  HW+; 51lbs; 2-3 yrs old; hound mix; 3/20

Brad Teen Pup

Brad (male, black,  26lbs)- Update Jan 7: Our boy Brad is trying very hard to be brave.  He is so scared but the sun feels good on his fur and he will stand still for petting.  He gets startled very easily so he needs a calm, patient person to help him learn to trust.   9/5/2017 intake; 3-4 mos old.  Siblings are Bobby and Bruno.

Bruno Teen Pup

9/5//2017 intake; male; 3-4 mos old.  Sibling are Brad and Bobby.


Bud was turned in as a stray. He's very friendly and sweet.  HW-; 63lbs; 2-3 yrs old; hound mix; 4/9

Buster-  Video 

Buster was brought in as a stray by animal control. He has a lot of personality and is sweet.  HW+; 54lbs; 2-3 yrs old; bull mix; 3/6

Walker's Update: Buster is a boy who excitedly greet folks and can't wait to meet other dogs.  Buster was so happy he was selected to head out for a walk but also nicely calmed down once out and about.   Curious but able to be redirected from cats,  Buster is a good choice for a family with kids who are looking for a fun/interactive pet to bring extra love to their home. 

C Pups x 2- Video

Cora (female, 16.4lbs-safe),  Camry (no sex given on intake sheet, 13lbs)

Collie lab mix; 3 mos old; 2/22

Carmen was turned in as a stray by animal control. She was very cooperative during intake. She’s also very sweet and friendly.  HW+; 37lbs; 2-3 yrs old; lab mix; 2/6

Is it play time yet?  Oh, please say it is!  Nothing makes me happier than to mix and mingle and play with other dogs and yes, also humans!   You should see how nicely I greet humans and when I am out and about on a leash, I earn high marks for my good behavior and mastering of the "leash."   Cats were not of much interest to me and slightly older kids would suit my level of energy and playfulness perfectly!  Carter is a lovely bluish color with gorgeous striking eyes, but he's not just all good looks, his personality is stellar as well. Carter is the perfect blend of playful and loving, great with other dogs and polite and social with people. There's not much about him that could be improved upon, so if you are looking for a dog who's ready to make your home complete, we have just the guy for you!  Note: Carter was turned in as owner surrender to animal control with Kayla, Dolphin, and Minnie. He’s very sweet and friendly.  HW-; 49lbs; 2-3 yrs old; bull mix; 1/5

Charlene was turned in as an owner surrender.  The owner had her for 2 years but could no longer afford her. She is housebroken & gets along with kids & other dogs. She's very friendly and sweet and has the kindest eyes.  HW+; 2 yrs old; 43lbs; bull/hound mix; 8/14/2017

Update March 21:  I have a boy friend. Smile. Smile.  His name is Bam Bam and we have such a grand time on our play dates.  Oh, how I look forward to running and interacting with him!  Did I mention how very attractive he is as well?  The lady dogs are also my friend and my preference are ones who don't want to be the queen bee as two queen bees may not be the best mix.   Folks always describe me as sweet and loving and polite.  I'm super patient when it comes time for potty break and really prefer to keep my kennel space very clean.   Take a peek at my videos and you'll see first hand how low key and chill I am!! 

More about me April 12: You can tell she was someone's pet.  She minds well, is house broken.  She loves to PLAY!  Her best buddy is Bam Bam.   Charlene just wants attention, she misses having a home and she knows basic things.  Someone took time with her, and it's a shame she is with us.  She is depressed sometimes, and you can tell she is sad, but you let her out.. and viola.. new dog.

Chewy Senior -safe

Chewy was brought in as an owner surrender.  She wasn't getting along with their young grandchild. She is very sweet and gentle.  HW-; 55lbs; 10+ yrs old; lab mix; 4/13

Foster Update April 13:    She is a real southern lady and perfect companion dog! Chewy loves to ride in the car and is able to get in and out of an SUV without help. She lays calmly while driving and occasionally enjoys feeling the wind in her face. Chewy walks easily on a lead and responds to “come here” by immediately coming back to your side. She is smart! She taps on the door to go outside and taps on your arm to say good morning! Chewy likes to warm up to other dogs slowly but tolerates being sniffed and sniffs politely herself. Chewy would not get on the couch if the other dog was already there, but happily joined humans when invited. When the other dog also came up, Chewy shared the space well and both dogs were comfortable enough to nap together. Chewy loves loves loves to walk leisurely outside and seems to also enjoy just hanging out on the porch listening to the birds and watching the grass grow. She was able to go all night without a potty break. Chewy seems to be accustomed to sleeping in a bed but she couldn’t get onto the bed without help. She slept in her dog bed without complaining or whining a bit. Chewy’s tail wags excitedly at any activity and I was shocked at how spry she is. She could definitely outrun me, but was content to just take a stroll. Chewy has been hand fed but also ate dry dog food well without any noticeable discomfort to her teeth. I was able to handle her quite easily and she allowed me to look and poke and move her around. Chewy is ready for her person! She is perfect for companionship and has a ton of life and love! Please consider her for rescue or adoption!

Foster Update April 14: MORE ON CHEWY: She joined us at Lawton Park this morning! They were having kayak lessons and demonstrations, two birthday parties and people fishing from the pier. Chewy was very excited to see everyone and everything, but became calm again within about 2 minutes. She strolled past geese, other dogs, little kids, and good smelling food like she was in a parade. She dipped her toes in the water and stayed calm even with lots of kids running around and yelling and playing nearby. Chewy accepted petting from folks passing by as well. I was able to walk both dog on leads with one hand. She is so easy! She is a GOOD DOG! We went to sonic afterwards for drinks. Chewy looked at everyone but was polite and didn’t bark at anyone! She is the BEST!

Clinger- VideoWithDuke VideoJan -safe

 This handsome, long legged guy is Clinger, described as volunteers as playful and sweet. He went for a walk with his buddy Duke and tails were wagging the whole time. He's a beautiful boy with spring in his step and he enjoys being petted and loved on. He came to the shelter after being found abandoned in a home with 13 other dogs but his joyful outlook is not diminished at all. He's still happy and ready to get on with the next chapter of his life as someones loving companion.  Clinger stays hopeful that he will be able to find his forever home soon.  He walks nicely and calmly on the leash and with his long legs he'd enjoy being a walking companion for a person who enjoys daily strolls. Clinger has nothing but love to offer, can he give you some?  Note: Clinger came in by animal control with the thirteen abandoned dogs. Very playful and sweet outside his kennel.  57lbs; 1-2 yrs old; shep mix; 1/9; HW-

Damien- VideoMarch

Damien, Damien and Carmen

Mr Manners.  You should see how calmly and nicely I greet humans and other dogs.  I'm so very, very polite that I know other dogs might look at me in awe!   A skilled leash walker, I'm always up for going out to explore, go and do and am easy to manage.   Folks describe me as an all around  "Good Boy."   I was curious about cats but easily re-directed and folks in general feel slightly older kids would be an ideal match for me.  Note: Damien was brought in as a stray by animal control. He gets along well with his roommate in his kennel and was very friendly.  HW+; 53lbs; 1-2 yrs old; shep mix; 1/23


Dandy was turned in as a stray to Kathy. He is sweet and friendly.  Dandy was brought to me by another community person, a man who saw the dog chained in the yard at another house in his neighborhood. The dog looked starved to him. When he inquired about the dog, he learned that originally the dog was bought as a purebred pointer, but the owner had since lost his job and could not afford to feed the dog much or well. The man who brought him to me asked for the dog and the original owner gladly gave him away. Dandy is a really shy, but sweet and loves attention. I feel he just needs socialization. Luckily he is HW negative. HW-; 43lbs; 1 yr old; pointer mix; 4/19

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.    4/6/2017; 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

Update January 16: This is Dink. Dink has had a very hard life and it will cost him his own now. You see Dink has heartworms and cannot be treated for them because of other heart issues, it would kill him. Dink does not get along with other dogs as we think he was used as bait. He is toothless, and has horrible scars along his backbone. He needs a hospice family, it is so unfair that he has to live his last days out in a cold, hard, cement kennel. He has never known love with the exception of what we workers give him. He deserves to be shown love, what a bed feels like.. what a family feels like before he passes.

Update January 21: He is very people friendly, he rides beautifully in a car.  I took him to the vet and he rode uncrated, and then we drove around for a bit (just because I wanted to be with him) and he's great.  He is a "soft spoken" fella, not extremely pushy or loud.  Although he has the most awful howl when he wants.  He doesn't try to attack other dogs at the kennels, he just doesn't want to play with them at all.  He is always up for a good rub down, and enjoys human interaction.  He takes treats gently, and will give you puppy dog eyes for them.

Donald Pup- Loves everyone! VideoNov

He is crate trained, learning to go outside (still forgets from time to time), plays with all the dogs at the house.  Donald is a very sweet boy.  He gets along with the other dogs in the house. Likes to play outside with the others, enjoys his toys, walks well on a leash.  He's very happy and tries his best to do what he is supposed to. Note: Donald was turned in as a stray from animal control. His back right leg was broken so AAH put a cast on him. 15lbs; male; 3 mos old; terrier/hound mix; 9/25/2017

Doris -safe

She is a good girl. Calm, walks well on leash. Was around 2 small male dogs and was tested with a female bull mix Queen--no issues.  Note: Doris was brought in as a stray by animal control. She is very playful but also well behaved.  46lbs; hw-; 1 yr old; shep mix; 3/28


Drifter was brought in as a stray. He had some wounds from wandering into the wrong yard & getting hurt. He’s been boarding at SMAH and is now going to bridge. He is very affectionate and sweet. His attitude is great, super sweet and friendly.  He is so very sweet, and super strong.   He is happy for any attention, and is very submissive when in the kennel and very sad to be in one. HW-; 58lbs; 2 yrs old; bull mix; 1/16/2018

More about me: Drifter was a big hit with everyone he met at the vet. He loved being in boarding and he was adored there. He cried when leaving. He is so sweet, just a big lovable cow dog. He is very smart and was learning some commands in boarding. He already learned to sit for his treats and did so during his shelter intake. He is very inquisitive and energetic. He loves to play. He is sturdy and strong but listens to instruction and is eager to please and should train well. No cats for me please.

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.  HW pos. Very very sweet. Really wants your attention and he very gentle. AC STRAY; 10/25/2017; 4-5 yrs old; 47lbs. male.   Good choice for for a female dog looking for a companion.  

I'll admit I was recently diagnosed with a serious case of "Wiggle Butt."  Now,   it's completely curable and you can help!!  You see, I get so darn happy when I see folks that I can't help but break out into my little Hawaiian dance.  With regular human contact (Im not getting my fill her sitting in my kennel),  my rear may not wiggle off  (and with such intensity!) and all will be well!   A friendly and engaging lady, I think you will agree I interview well and do a nice job in politely meeting other dogs.  Described as a slow and steady energy girl,  I rank at the top in the leash skill area and while curious about cats, can easily be redirected.  My temperament is fine for all kids but in part due to my size and some very random burst of energy,  slightly older kids would be an excellent choice for me.   And I'm not bragging, but my beautiful butterscotch coat has been described as gorgeous.  Check out my video of me meeting a new friend, Commodore, and see what a tail wagging girl I am!  Note: Elouise is a sweetheart who came in with 12 other dogs. She is HW+.  2-3 yrs old; 1/8; hound mix; 56lbs.  Retested HW neg TWICE on 4/8.   The pack of dogs she arrived with all initially tested HW neg, this is a great gauge to back up her re-test results. 


Emily was turned in as a stray.  She is really sweet and has very good manners.  HW-; 42lbs; 1-2 yrs old; lab/bull mix; 4/17

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.  4/10/16; HW+ ; July 2 pics.   Treated for HW's on 10/25/16.

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.   She has what I might call a "bratty" side in that she can get in another dog's face and will kind of poke and nudge other dogs to react.  In general she is better with males vs female but certainly a dog with a more submissive outlook to life is a better match for her.
