NEW MOM  Shannon +  Sx8 3 week old pups!! -safe


We need to get them out this weekend if possible!  She was soooo sweet, even when confronted by another dog, she did not react. She let me pet her babies with a wiggly butt. Pit mix; 4 yrs old; hw-; 39lbs; 3/22

Amy 


She's a super sweet girl that heather Hayes found in the road on the way to the shelter yesterday. She has a lot of hair loss and we believe it is sarcoptic and have made a vet form for her. She is a very good girl. She looks like she has been tied up somewhere because she has a collar mark around her neck.   hw+; 2/17; lab/heeler; 1 yr old; 27lbs

Ava- Pregnant.  Due April 10! VideoMarch


She was brought in by AC. She is very shy but incredibly sweet.  She has cute quirky ears, one up one down, but she was unwilling to show off for the camera. Once she relaxed she was full of kisses.  Note: very sweet and submissive. great with other dogs---has been rooming with Otis. hw-; 2-3 yrs old; 41 lbs; 3/2

Avery- VideoFeb VideoWithOliviaFeb VideoMarch- Sponsored for heartworm treatment by www.radardogs.org



Avery, the dark blakc, velvet beauty, is an active young girl with a heart of gold. She's a cuddle bug who also loves to romp and play and has plenty of energy to keep up with an active owner. Looking for a dog to be a hiking or jogging partner? Here she is!  Then when it's time to give kisses and get cuddled she's ready for that as well. Sweet and friendly is how the staff describes her and her glossy brindle coat is just gorgeous. She's a nice medium size, too! She loves people but was overwhelmed by shelter life when she first came in. Now she has gotten into the swing of things and adores the staff and all the volunteers who stop by to take her for walks.  As you can see in her video, Avery met another dog and was friendly, but she is best suited to a home with no feline friends. If you are looking for a new family member to spoil and lavish with love, please consider our sweet Avery.  She will repay your kindness with years of loyalty and kisses. 38 pounds, 2 years old, female, HW+, Lab blend, 12/2/1. 12/2/16; Note: She was abandoned by her person

Bear -safe


Bear is friendly and loves attention.  Seems to get along with all kinds of dogs and hasn't been very interested in cats, though I haven't brought him too close to them yet. Bear had an owner who kept him on a short chain in her yard for his whole life.  She was never seen playing with him.  His collar became embedded and her neighbors begged her to take him to a vet.  She finally took him to the vet, where they removed the collar and cleaned the wound and gave him antibiotics.  Instead, she apparently turned him loose and he ran away.  He was found and turned over to the shelter.  He has been living in my outdoor kennel (with doghouse and lots of pinestraw) and is doing well.  I got a harness for him so he won't hurt his wound - which is almost completely healed.  He pulls hard on the leash though, so I haven't been able to take him out much to play in my fenced yard.  He would be great with some active kids.  He tried to play with my two small yappy dogs through the fence, and he is friendly with my bigger pit mix.  flat coat retriever; 1/3; male; 42lbs; hw-; 2 yrs old


Update Feb 10: Bear played with this young female Lab who is even more enthusiastic than he is.  They got along fine.  He even seemed a little intimidated by her.  Kathy thought he was really sweet.  He seems a little bossy with my older neutered male dog, who is a little smaller than Bear.  And he is pretty interested in my cats.  He doesn't bark at them.  When Margaret came over, I held one of my kitties near Bear and he seemed interested but not aggressive.  I think he might chase a cat if ot ran, but if it stood its ground he would back off.  Not sure about that, though.

Betty Pup + Female Sibling?- safe


Owner surrender with her sister.  Very friendly.  2.6lbs; 7 wks old; female; chi

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; 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.


Bubba


He is a great dog!! He can sit and give paw.  He is hw pos.  His paper says he was turned over as a stray. He chases cats.  male; 3/20; hw+' 5-6 yrs old; 62lbs; lab mix

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).

Buster Pup -safe


3/14; male; no breed; O/S when his 2 siblings died. 3 mos old; 15bs.  He is a happy, healthy, boy--very playful and sweet.

Cagney -safe


Cagney was picked up by AC along with his best friend, Lacey.  is an AC dog. He is very sweet but has been hurt from a fight or other incident.   3/15; male; 35lbs; shep/husky mix; no age or HW test

Camilla


She came Im from AC. Trapped as a stray.  She is very nice. Ac said she is from the same street as Manny and Moe.  GSD; 3/25; 3 yrs old; no HW status; 3 yrs old



He is such a sweet boy I absolutely love him. He was brought in by AC today and when I went to get him from his kennel I immediately loved him. He was just sad big and sad. He was a little afraid of me like someone my have been mean to him at some point but he's very submissive. He was great during intake and very, very polite. I asked him to come sit by me and he very slowly walked over and sat in front of me and let me rub all over him. He walks perfectly on the leash and even though he could pull me down if he wanted he stayed right by me instead. I walked him by the cats and he refused to pay them any attention and didn't even want to go by the habitats with me. He has a broken canine that I'm making a vet form for them to look at Wednesday.   HW+; 67lbs; 1-2 yrs old; bill mix; 3/4

More about me March 18: This handsome fat-head boy has become a favorite of shelter staff and volunteers.  He has quickly moved into "tester" dog position because he just doesn't want to bother anybody. 

Carrie- VideoMarch



She's a friendly girl with loves of energy who was turned in with Casey and Ricky bc her owners are moving.  HW+; 38lbs; 2-3 yrs old; lab mix; 2/16

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. 






Very sweet, friendly, big guy. Is kenneled with Chesley.  hw-; 78 lbs; male; 2-3 yrs old; 2/15; boxer/lab.  Note: He is dog friendly. I'd bet kid friendly, he is just a big goof ball. Cats may be to tempting.  Chad is an extremely handsome big boy with plenty of energy.  He would be well suited to an active family.  

Charles




Charles is a big handsome Walker hound who wandered up to a church and was picked up by one of the workers there.  He loves treats and he really enjoyed his ride in the truck to get to the shelter.   Note: He was brought in Wednesday by a man who found him at a church.  He's a sweet guy.   hw-; 5 yrs old; 50lbs; male; hound mix; 2/8. Note: Charles is a big ole friendly hound.  He loves to sniff around on his walks but is not a hard puller.



Very sweet girl. She will sit for treats and takes them very nicely. Came in with Chad. The person who turned her over said they found them in his yard and had them for a day.  Sweet girl.  Little bit all over the place which is typical for hounds and pointers, but not over the top energetic.  Rooming with her buddy Chad.  Probably not a good match for cats.  female; 2/15; 4-5 yrs old; 47lbs; hw- ; hound mix



Poor Cinnamon is terrified right now.  I was able to take her out but she was literally shaking in her boots.  Margaret said she has very nice manners.  Impossible to say whether she would be good with kids or cats or other dogs right now because she just stood (and finally sat) like a statue beside me.  She did not really acknowledge my presence.  She let me pet her but she did not respond.   She is lovely and in very good physical condition. Note: Cinnamon was turned in by a family that had been caring for her as a stray.   She started chasing chickens.  She is a doll.  female; 2/28; hw-; 50lbs; shep mix; 5-6 yrs old

More about me: This beautiful girl is just petrified to be at the shelter.  She does not know what happened but she is shell-shocked.  I did get her to walk on the lead enough to come out for some pics but she just stood there shaking in her boots.  She let me pet her but was too scared to respond much at all.  She looks to be in very good condition so hopefully she will quickly get adjusted to her new situation and relax some.

Clyde


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

Daisy -safe



She is a very sweet dog, well socialized. I'm sure she was once a family dog.  I think she should be easy to place. Great temperament nice size, sweet face.  She's super sweet and submissive. Just rolled into my lap. She is in heat right now. AC stray.  She has wonderful manners, she was/is clearly someones pet. It looks like she has been wandering for a while.  Takes treats very gently.  1-2 yrs old; 3/1; female; 36lbs;  collie mix;  hw-


Daphne was very timid when she arrived at the shelter but she has been working hard to build her confidence.  She still gets spooked sometimes by loud noises or fast movements and she is not a confident leash walker but when she is spending time with her person her tail picks up a steady wag.  She enjoys being petted and just being close to her person.  She will sit right by and lean into you or even drape across your lap.  3-4 yrs old; 10/19; hw-; O/S; female



Della

Found with a fractured leg. Leg splinted last Monday when I did intake. Has microchip but owner signed her over bc she can no longer care for her. Age 2-3.  She is soooooo sweet. Wants to b around a person 24/7. She's crate trained, doesn't make a peep! In the week I've had her I haven't heard her bark once. Potty trained, she never has had one accident in my house. She gets along with kids, cats, and dogs. Walks good on a lead. She's  low energy.  Her leg was broken and needs to heal.  Everyone loves her!   2/28; hw-;  38lbs

Diana Pup and Dolly Mom- safe




Diana Pup: 20lbs; female; Mixed breed; 10 weeks old.   Dolly Mom:  This is Dolly of the D family. She is super sweet and wants to be sitting on you at every moment.  She is very thin. Picked up as strays. The people said she used to have 4 pups.  Dakota pup is in the ER with a damaged limb. He is now safe 3/18.  40lbs; 3-5 yrs old; HW+; 3/9

More about Dolly: Dolly Mom is a sweet little thing, calm and patient girl who loves attention.  She is sharing her kennel with her own pup Diana as well as 2 other pups of a similar age.  She walks nicely on lead and she is unsure about cats.  We found a cat in the yard and after watching it for a few minutes Dolly decided that barking at it seemed like the right thing to do, but she did not charge or act aggressively.

Dingo


48lbs; male; 5 yrs old; HW+; 1/27.  Friendly, low energy level. Good with other dogs.

Earl



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.  11/1

Ella Pup



She is just the cutest thing.  Such a sad puppy face but she loves getting attention.  Note: 2/9/17; Boxer/Shep mix; 10-12 weeks; 10.3 lbs. She was brought in today after being found on the side of the road. She does not have a tail and appears to have problems using the bathroom. She had blood coming out of her anus after some poop came out.  She seems to be a calm sweet pup but just does not feel well at the moment.



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.

Emily Ann


female; 46lbs; bull mix; 2 yrs.  HW-; Super friendly.  Ac stray.

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.




Erin



He's such a sweet boy. I feel so bad for him because he's so skinny and his legs are bowed strangely. But he is so happy and loves life so much. He ran around the med room sayin hi to everyone and playing with a toy. He was just so happy and didn't care about how pitiful he looked. I've made a vet form for his legs to be looked at.  HW+; 2/21; pointer; male; 2-3 yrs old; 32lbs. Note: front legs have deformities - likely from malnutrition during growth - bowed out at radius and ulna of both front legs - TREAT with pain management if needed.  Note: Eren is such a goofy sweet boy.  He is so excited to say hello to everyone he meets.  He loves to follow his nose like a typical pointer.

Eve Teen Pup- VideoMarch



I absolutely love her she is so sweet. She is my kind of dog, calm and submissive but wants to give you all the love she can. She was very quiet during intake and just walked around and checked everything out for a minute then laid down by my feet and waited for me to get her attention but she never begged for it or jumped up on me to get attention she just waited patiently. Every time I went to do anything medically she would roll over and wag her tail. She has an embedded collar wound that is healed all the way around her neck and she was brought in my AC.  hw-; 39lbs; 10-12 mos old; bull/pointer mix; 2/24; female. Note: Not cat friendly.  Growled at the cats as she approached the habitats.
