Gertrude- Senior




Never in a rush!  Our sweet senior lady is simply precious!  This slightly low-riding lab mix is easy going and mellow and would love nothing better than to relax by her person.  Nicely exiting the busy kennel area, Gertrude was pretty oblivious to all the noise and energy around her and nicely walked to our front fenced area where she politely met a male and female dog.    Sporting a well earned white muzzle and signs of many, many litters,  Senior Gertrude is no longer interested in heavy duty wrestling with other dogs but is certainly content to share her space with other dogs and is welcoming of them into her "let's be chill" and enjoy a easy paced walk in the tall grass.  Gertrude is a sweet, nuzzling lady who still has a bit of spunk and "can do" attitude which she would love to share with YOU!   She's an appealing lady who deserves one more chance to prove how terrific a companion pet she can be!  Note: stray; lab mix; female; 8 yrs old; HW+; 43lbs; 9/1; No cats for me please

Gus


Gus is a very sweet boy. He walks very well on a leash, and loves treats. HW+; 56lbs; 3 yrs old; 11/25; hound

Hank- Senior



HW+; O/S; male; lab mix; 64lbs; 13 yrs old; 10/29.  Hank is housebroken and loves to go on his walks to use the bathroom. He also knows how to sit, and loves to catch his treats in the air. He is a gentle old soul that needs some TLC.

Hemi


O/S- lab mix; 3 yrs old; hw-; 50lbs; 11/20; male





Have fun with me!!  Hillary is a hoot to have by your side.  This lovely sleek jacketed lady with the broad white chest blaze and snazzy white boots has never met a stranger and has plenty of love and fun to go around!  She found a kindred soul in Will, a young lab on our outing to the front arena area. The two of them ran off leash and played and played and wrestled up a storm.  They were peas in a pod when it came to getting rid of some excess built up wiggles!  Hillary has a "let's go and do" outlook on life and finds a good time no matter where she goes.  On her own, Hillary loves running and chasing after balls and hanging near her person.  Affectionate and loving,  Hillary enjoys giving and accepting lots of love and attention.  Note: bully mix; 10/8; stray; 2 yrs old; 36lbs; hw-





Sweet old lady!  Mention the name "Hope" and the staff and volunteers are quick to chime in, "She's a doll!"  This pocket size lab mix has not had an easy life and arrived thin, with worn down teeth, goopy eyes and yes,  worms eating away at her heart.  Despite some health challenges (which can be addressed), she is just the nicest dog you'll meet and is graced with a personality that is always upbeat and cheery!  A perfect gem in meeting two male dogs on our walk today,  she's polite and considerate and really a friend to all.  More quiet and not too clingy,  Hope keeps a steady wagging tail and has the cutest little smile.  She's been down a long, tiresome road and seems genuinely grateful to be at the shelter where she has steady meals and a sense of security.  She's earned a spot in someone's home though where she can be doted over and loved.  Might you be the person to help her?  Note: 8+ yrs old; stray; 32lbs; 9/23; HW+; lab mix

Hopper -safe


stray; retriever mix; missing back foot due to old injury; male;  43lbs; 2-3 yrs old; 11/17; HW+





Jesse was found as a stray in Darlington. He was picked at the intersection of N Main St and Doneraile St.  He has been in foster with Debbie Anderson and she has been trying to help him gain weight. Many of his teeth are broken. He has badly clipped ears and a lot of hair loss. Despite this, he is very affectionate and sweet.  HW+; 45lbs; 2-3 yrs old; bull mix; 11/19/18

Foster update May 28 2019:   I picked him up from out of the road, dodging traffic, on Halloween night.  He was in terrible shape when I found him.  He had a collar on but was so emaciated, his skin was red and irritated and he was so dirty.  We began working to put some weight back on him and work on his skin issues.  He still has a little hair loss on his back, but he is doing much better.  He is an older guy and you can tell that humans have not been kind to him in his life.  Despite all that, he is the sweetest and most loving little man.  I had his intake done at the shelter and brought him straight home with me into foster, so he's not spent any time at the shelter.  Great dog so deserving of a home of his own!

Justice


Justice is a very loving sweet boy. He does walk on a leash, and is a very mild mannered boy. bully mix; HW+; 40lbs; 4 yrs old; 10/31; stray






Kid tested.  Mother approved! Lola's book is wide open and she'd love for you to come on by and flip through her fun, happy pages!   A solid, athletic lady pressing 50lbs,  there is a lot to love about Lola.  She loves to run and play (and repeat!) and be in the thick of things.  Never meeting a stranger,  Lola eagerly meets everyone and invites them to come and hang out with her.  She delighted in meeting a youth volunteer on our outing while mom fondly looked on as the two ran and played and then had snuggle time.  Graced with a vibrant, bouncy outlook on life,  her personality is a perfect match for kids but the kids will need to be more sturdy and ready for full throttle ahead hug and lap time sessions.   An active home where Lola can be a part of the daily action/activity will best align with her desire to go and do and seek and find friends and love!   Ask for Lola today! Note: O/S- can no longer care for her. bully mix; 9/1; 47lbs; HW+; 2 yrs old;  Lola is a big girl with an even bigger personality to match! She did very well during her intake. 

Lottie -safe


lab mix; stray; HW-; 2 yrs old; 10/30; 27lbs.  Sweet girl!








Voted Most Photogenic!   The camera went crazy for all the wonderful posing and action shots showing how social, loving and interactive handsome Lucas is.  This teen, sleek jacketed fellow had so much fun mixing and mingling and making new friends while out on his morning "Grand Adventure," in our front field.   First off, Lucas loves to play.  He loves running and chasing after balls and playing tug of war.  He so wants a doggy playmate as well but will need one who can keep pace with his wiggly, jiggly, body and desire to wrestle and roll and really have some good earnest grass time fun!  Lucas loves kids! He kept making his way into our 3rd grader's lap, or right by her side hoping to get some belly rubs and overall body pets.  Super social and uber friendly,  Lucas is yours and really, everyone's immediate best friend.   Super attractive with his golden eyes, tan jacket and endless smile and wagging tail,  Lucas is a very approachable, appealing fellow.  He makes everyone's day just a little bit happier and better! Note: 8-9 mos old; lab mix; stray; 9/23; 44lbs; HW-





I made lots of new friends today.   My spirit is buoyed!   I found several human friends today but honestly the highlight was finding a cute brindle girl to hang out with and then, Myers a robust bully mix who shares the same enthusiasm and playfulness as I do when given a chance to run and stretch my legs in a safe play space.   Gosh,  he was SO handsome and just the best running and play mate.   While I'm happy to play with others, I also enjoy playing a simple game of fetch and also nicely relaxing by my human and giving them gentle hugs.   Never meeting a stranger, some might say I am a bit over eager in trying to say hi but it's all in good faith as I love broadening my scope of friends.   Ready to go and do and have a good time,  middle school age kids would be a great match for me and folks who lead a more active lifestyle.   My name is Maggie and I'm hoping to soon make YOUR day as your new companion pet.   Note: found tied up to a tree.  picked up by animal control; female; 44lbs; 10/22; 2 yrs old; Hw- ; Maggie is a very playful, affectionate girl. She will walk on a leash, but she does pull some.   No cats for her! She did very well during her intake.

Maisy -safe



shep mix; came in with Luna (now safe). O/S - keeps getting out of the fence. Reportedly ok with kids, cats and other dogs. HW-; 43lbs; 10/8.   Adopted 10/24. Returned 11/8. Has seizures.

Mama T


Mama T has a sad story to tell but still a joyful outlook. She came to the shelter when her owner was no longer able to care for her. She was pregnant with 7 puppies but sadly none of the 7 survived. Mama T hasn't let the loss of her puppies dim her sunny disposition though, she remains friendly and social with other dogs and especially loves getting love and attention from her person. She is a nice smaller size and packs a lot of love in a little package! She is a champion cuddler and walks wonderfully on a leash. Mama T has so much love to give to one very special person.  She is very affectionate and bonds with her person and thinks it is her job to be a protector.  Because of this instinct, we are recommending that she go into a one person home with someone who would appreciate a dog who wants to be their guardian and keep them safe. Mama T will make a wonderful companion for the right person. She is also crate trained and spent some time in a foster home where we discovered she was house trained as well. Mama T had her cat test and when she was walked by the cattery she didn't react to the kitties at all. This little love bug has waited for a forever home that will cherish her and treat her with love and the value every pet deserves. Let her spread a little of her love into your home, we think you'll never regret it!  Note: Mama T was brought in as an owner surrender. The owner could no longer take care of her.  HW+; 38lbs; 1-2 yrs old; lab mix; 8/27/18; Treated for hw's 11/18/18





Got Toys?  Well, we could be really amazing friends!   While enjoying the sunny day and running through the play yard, I found one amazing toy after the other.  It's hard to say if one was always just better than the previous one but what I know for sure is that I had a grand time activating them, throwing them in the air, gnawing on them and then repeating!   My name is Celia and folks are guaranteed to have a fun time with me by their side.   With some energy and love to spare,  more active, sturdy folks are a perfect match for me.  I'm always up for meeting new dogs and people and wish to welcome them into my happy, wondrous world.   Going and doing is always a good choice for me as I have no inhibitions and love exploring, learning and broadening my horizons.    A stunning, young at heart bully,  I'm smart (will nicely sit), alert and aim to please.  Ask for me Celia, today won't you? Note: boxer mix; O/S- can no longer care for her. 41lbs; HW-; 3 yrs old; 9/16. Came in with Antoinette (now safe). Given name is Celia.

Mimzy


Mimzy is an absolute sweetheart. She is very submissive, but very affectionate. She loves to roll over and get belly rubs. She will walk on a leash, but could use some work gaining confidence.   stray lab mix; 1-2 yrs old; 11/23; 42lbs; HW-

Muffin - Teen -safe


O/S; 6 mos old; 38lbs; 11/24: shep; HW-; Muffin is a very shy and timid girl, but she is very affectionate as well. If you sit on the floor with her, she will crawl into your lap and rest her head on your legs. She was an individual surrender, but they did not list a reason as to why they surrendered her, but they said they have had her her entire life. I'm sure that she is very confused and scared as to what is happening.



Oh please, don't forget to include me!   Myers is such a ham of a dog who has no interest in sitting on the sidelines.  He loves to be a part of the action and does such a great job sharing his fun, bouncy self with all.  A more active guy who loves to go and do,  Myers found a kindred soul in Maggie, a pretty chocolate lab/bully mix.  The two of them nicely complimented each other with similar play and wrestling styles.   They rolled around, ran and played and then repeated the great fun.  Nicely also meeting another female dog,  his bigger personality was a little too much for her so she politely refrained from getting into the full action mode.   Myers is full of love and life and pure joy to have by your side.  Note: Myers is a happy, playful  boy. He was found dragging a lead behind him. He did very well during his intake, but does not appear to be fond of cats.  HW+; 52lbs; 2 yrs old bully mix; 10/31
