Ned was brought in as a stray by animal control. He is very playful and friendly.  Hw-; 41lbs; 1-2 yrs old; shep mix; 4/12


Nova is the mother of the Nx9 litter. She's a very good mother to them but is still a little scared.  HW-; 2-3 yrs old; 40lbs; hound mix;  40lbs.  8/24/17.  Nova is a sweet lady who can be cautious initially around men.  Once she knows them, she's fine w/them.   She lost her rescue due to her being cautious around men.

Update Jan 26: Nova is a big doll baby.  She is short in stature but big in wiggles and always smiling.  I let her out with me every morning, and she is one of my personal favorites, she will jog beside me waiting for a treat, jump up for lots of rub downs.  She doesn't go to kennels and start anything, just sort of smiles and runs.  She was shy with the guys at first, but loves them now.  The thing with Nova is she acts all mean if you walk up to her kennel and she doesn't know you.  Once she realizes that you are letting her out, feeding, etc.  she stops, she is all bark and no bite.  Never has she attempted, to actually bite.  And I really think she has gotten over most of the issues with men now that they are the main ones taking care of her.

Update Feb 24: This is Nova, she gets along with other dogs and has came such a long way from when she came in to Bridge.  She had a small issue with men, I am assuming that a male had abused her, she really didn't like them.  Now however, she loves the male caretakers.. jumps on them, looks forward to seeing them and is just a happy girl. 

When Otis came into the shelter we thought he was a senior dog (aged at 5-8 yrs old).  After taking him to the vet we learned Otis is actually only 3-5 yrs old.  He is a wonderful guy.  There is something wrong with his back leg.  Whatever it is, I don't think it is something we can fix.  Maybe an old injury or he was born with the deformity.  He doesn't jump, due to the weakness in one of his hind legs. 

Otis enjoys being where people are and doesn't meet a stranger.  He walks good on a leash, gets along with the other dogs, is house trained.  Otis was brought in by animal control 10/27/17. This boy must have had a family at some time because he was altered prior to intake.  He came to us extremely underweight and is still working on adding pounds.  He is much better, but still skinny.  Note: Otis was brought in by animal control. He is very sweet and friendly. He has displaced hips & arthritis. He’s on Rimadyl & joint supplements. He needs an inside foster.  3-5 yrs old; hw+; 61lbs; shep mix; 10/27. Med notes: stiff, arthritic, right hind leg bowed with thick knee, crepitus in both stifles, p/c intact - xrays showed dysplatic hips with subluxation - incredibly shallow acetabulus - TREAT with joint supplement, rimydyl 100 mg 1/2 pill twice daily

Soccer with Me: Otis LOVES to play soccer with Melissa.  I was very surprised to see him doing this.  He really enjoys his time out playing ball.  He's not necessarily interested in playing with the ball alone, but if he sees Melissa kicking it, he's up for a game of keep away.  You can tell my watching him how much fun he is having. 

Pablo- Video

Pablo was brought in as a stray by animal control. He is very friendly and playful.  HW -; 58lbs; 1-2yrs; lab mix; 2/16


Paige was brought in by animal control. She is part of an animal neglect case. Despite this, she is very sweet and friendly and wants love.  She will run and play fetch AND bring the ball back to you.  She will also nicely "sit."   HW+; 36lbs; 2-3 yrs old; bull/lab mix; 1/8


Patience is a shy sweetheart who warmed up enough to have her intake and met some new volunteers today. She is HW-  Shep mix; hw-; 2-3 yrs old; 30lbs; 1/24

Update March 14: This is Patience our shy/scared girl on her first excursion out with volunteers Saturday.  She preferred to keep it very safe and hug the ground for most of her time out but our volunteers are working with her to help build her confidence.  She is nicely sharing her space with Onyx and Peggy Sue.


Peaches was brought in as an owner surrender.  She came in with Purdy. HW-; 35lbs; 1-2 yrs old; shep mix; 2/22

Pebbles- VideoWithMarshall - Sponsored fro heartworm treatment

Pebbles is a more independent lady, friendly but not gushy.  She is a larger sized strong girl who pulls some in her eagerness to be out but overall a nice walking companion.  She is probably too interested in the kitties, they certainly caught her attention but the poor girl was attacked by one of the yards cats as we came back to the shelter.  The cat charged across the yard and got in 2 blows before Pebbles had time to react.  Scary kitty!  Note: Pebbles was turned in as a stray. She has a lot of energy and is very friendly.  HW+; 56lbs; 2-3 yrs old; lab mix; 12/27

More about me March 24: Described as a happy girl who just wants to play, I'm curious but polite in meeting people and boy, I love playing with other dogs.  I'm a great choice with kids of all ages,  eager to be outside of my kennel but nicely behaves and am curious but can be redirected from cats.  Recently she attended an outreach event and was friendly and social to all who stopped to visit with her. She loved hanging out there with her friend Marshall plus it was fun to just have a break from shelter life for an afternoon. If you have a friendly resident dog who would enjoy a companion, please check out this pretty black Lab looking girl!  Pebbles has nothing but a heart full of love to give her new family and would make a wonderful addition to most any family!


Phillip was brought in as a stray by animal control. He is very friendly and walks well on a leash.  HW+; 54lbs; 1-2 yrs old; bull mix; 4/5

Phoebe- VideoWithLuna VideoWithLuna -sponsored for pull fees

Phoebe is a sweet girl who was brought in by animal control. She is HW +.  Bully mix; 2 yrs old; 48lbs; 10/10
Temp Test Results:  ALMOST PERFECT SCORE!!  She scored top marks in having her mouth opened, her belly rubbed and dog test. No cats for Phoebe please. 

More about me Dec 29: Mixer and Mingler!  I'm your go to gal if you have pets in stock who need a girl friend or kids in stock who need a playmate.  Never meeting a stranger,  I'm told I make folks smile and feel loved.  I had the best time meeting 4 other dogs while out walking the other day and everyone said I was a great greeter and was also super attentive to the nice human who was walking me.  Generally my energy level is pretty moderate to low but I'm certainly open to walking at a faster/stronger pace should the need arise.   Friendly and well balanced,  I would thrive in a home where I have daily activities/outings and folks to love on!   No cats for me please!


Piper was dropped off as stray by animal control. She is very affectionate and friendly and cooperated very well during intake.  HW+; 38lbs; 1-2 yrs old; bull mix; 2/12

A long time ago in a land far away, snowflakes fluttered down from the sky, like falling stars on the shelter walls. And there was a young dog named Pluto, who sat alone and dreamt of having a wonderful Christmas day. His prayer included a warm bed, food to eat and a loving family to call his own. Pluto is a 4-5 year old, 40+ pounds, beautiful male dog. His eyes are full of hope and his heart is big. This boy has had a rough start to his life. He has been at the shelter since he was puppy when he arrived with his brother Goofy. Both brothers came from a neglect case, underweight and with mange. Goofy went to rescue but Pluto was not so lucky. When he was younger Pluto would do his ego, stiff-legged waltz and then locked legs when he met another male dog. Since his younger days, Pluto has worked with two trainers and has blossomed into a happy and playful dog.  He still requires slow intros and once he is introduced properly, watch the play begin! Pluto loves all humans and just wants to be loved. He would make a wonderful family pet. This year his wish again is to be home for the holidays.  

Please help Pluto have the Christmas miracle he has been patiently waiting for.  Initial Intake 5/2015;  Arrived very thin at 32lbs;   Note:  Pluto will let kids and puppies crawl all over him!

Update Dec 8: Pluto needs to have a person in charge.  If no person is in charge, he will try to be in charge, especially with males. I did originally think Pluto was a young dog based on his energy and playfulness however he is more middle age.  He still however has that puppy play personality. Pluto will try to be dominant with males.  If a human is there to direct him, he will back down.  If the human is not good at directing dogs, there may be a fight...depends on reaction of other dog...will that dog be dominated or not?  Pluto plays well with other females and loves puppies. He just does't need to be around male dogs. He loves people too.

Polly Molly- Video

Polly Molly is a sweetheart. She was an owner surrender because they couldn't take care of her anymore. She is currently in foster to help her overcome her shyness.  6 yrs old; hw-; terrier mix; 27lbs; 12/2


Ms. Purdy was turned in as an owner surrender. She came from the same owner as Peaches. She is very scared but is trying very hard to come around.  HW+; 33lbs; 1-2 yrs old; shep mix; 2/22

Queen- Video

"Wonderful kissy girl.  Love her!" Volunteer Comment.    I get a little excited in meeting new folks, but I'm fast to dial down and will impress you with my nice leash skills.  I'm playful in my interaction with other dogs and would be a good choice for kids of all ages.   No cats for me please!  Queen has a pretty tan and grey brindle coat with a white bib and paws, so unique and cute! She'd be a great companion to any current resident dog and also would make a great  partner for someone who enjoys getting some exercise by going for walks around their neighborhood or walking path.  It would be hard to find a more affectionate girl than Queen, adopt her and she will repay you with years of companionship and devotion.  She's a nice medium size and would be a perfect fit into most any home!   Note: Queen was turned in as an owner surrender to animal control. The owner didn’t have the reclaim fee. She has a lot of energy and is very friendly.  HW-; 47lbs; 1-2 yrs old; bull mix; 12/14


Quentin was brought in as a stray by animal control. He is a little timid but still friendly. He walks well on a leash and was very cooperative during intake.  HW+; 46lbs; 2-3 yrs old; boxer mix; 4/12

Rani Pup  -safe

Rani was dropped off as an owner surrender. She is very playful and friendly. Working with her on food guarding.  33lbs; 6 mos old; shep mix; 3/5; HW-


Raven was brought in as a stray by animal control. She’s a little scared at the shelter but was cooperative with me during intake.  hw-; 60lbs; 1 yr old; lab mix; 1/26

Rex -safe

Polite and quiet!  We love this little guy and you will as well!  Talk about getting top marks when evaluated, well he was superb in all areas of testing.   Very polite in meeting people and other dogs (perhaps a bit submissive around other dogs),  he interviews really well and makes sure to respond to you when called to and makes wonderful eye contact with people.  He sniffed and ignored the cats and when let off leash in the exercise yard, nicely stood by his human vs racing off to go and do.    A loose leash walker and having a more slow/steady energy level,  in his foster home he's getting along great with the 3 large resident dogs and the one small dog.   He’s a wonderful dog. Note: Rex was brought in as an owner surrender. He was attacked by another dog and treated by a vet prior to intake. He is sweet and HW negative.   JRT; 2 yrs old; 15lbs; 4/6


Richard was dropped off as a stray. He is very sweet and friendly.  Hw-; 50lbs; 2-3 yrs old; plot hound mix; 4/19

Riley is AWESOME as well. I have several videos of him, too. He is a GREAT dog, but he seems to want to be a companion/service dog. He has "all eyes on" his person---whoever is his handler. He didn't want to meet another male dog, but both males were un-neutered. We think that may have been the issue. He did meet another female dog, pitbull Rita, but again, he just met her and walked away. Riley is such a handsome, hugging, attentive, loyal dog, he would be a perfect companion for someone who wants a 24/7 companion/therapy/service dog. He does not bother cats--ignores them. Note: Riley was brought in by animal control. He is very sweet and eager for love.  HW+; 59lbs; 2-3 yrs old; shep mix; 11/28; male

More about me April 4: Riley is AMAZING!!!  We need to test him with male dogs once more, but he would make someone an AMAZING companion. He is very much a shepherd, a companion dog, a support dog. He is totally focused on his person and wants to be with that person. He would be great for someone's companion walking dog. He is not reactive to other dogs, so he would be great to walk on sidewalks. He is just one of those dogs who prefers to be with his human. He truly has a shepherd personality. My sister's shepherd will come and sit on her feet at her feet anytime she stops. My neice was telling me about her GSD yesterday---same thing--follows her around the house, stops when she stops, at her feet.. I told her, "He's a shepherd!"

Uniquely me!  That's what I am!  I heard those silly humans talking about me, wondering what kind of dog I was.  One of them even said maybe I was part hyena with my funny face.  Well that IS silly.  But I don't let it bother me.  Actually I have a pretty cheerful disposition in spite of my current situation.  I like meeting new humans and I love playing with my roommate Leta.  Doggy wrestling is so much fun!  I was getting full marks with the kitties too, pretending I didn't even see that kitty lying in the grass next to me.  But then it happened.  That kitty jumped up and darted off and I couldn't resist trying to chase her, it looked like such fun!  I am hoping someone out there is looking for a mid-sized, fun-loving bouncy girl with magnificent ears to join their family.   1 yr old; hw-; 7/18/15; 31 lbs 

Note: This girl will certainly turn heads. She plays well with others, but prefers to be the alpha. If you’re into unwinding on the couch, she’ll watch Netflix as long as you can; if you don’t mind petting her.

Rosa was dropped off as a stray. She’s timid but still friendly.  Best suited with low-key dogs who won't get in her face.  Treated for hw's jan 4, 2018. 39lbs; 1 yr old; husky/shep mix; 10/24/17


Rosie was turned in as a stray to Kathy. She is a little shy but very sweet. She is at bridge.  Rosie was picked up by a community lady who found her running alongside a very busy 4 lane highway. She is a little shy with people, but loves all dogs. 19lbs; 3 mos; bull mis; 4/19


I'm a happy, social lady who will impress you with my leash skills and my med/low energy level.   I did a nice job in ignoring the cats while out on my walk.  Note: Ruby was turned in as a stray by animal control.  She is very sweet and friendly and cooperated well during intake.  Limping on back leg.  On meds for 2 weeks.  Needs an X-ray.  HW-; 54lbs; 1-2 yrs old; shep mix; 2/27. Med Update April 2: She went back to vet on Monday, April 2 and Dr Anderson said that continued rest and pain meds was recommended. She will probably need surgery to repair hip.  


Rufus came in with 2 other dogs. He is pretty sweet and playful. in foster care.  HW+; lab mix; 1-2 yrs old; 40lbs; 3/31


Sarah was brought in as a stray by animal control. She is very friendly but doesn't like needles so it took a little while to do the intake. She has demedex from fleas that is being treated.  Hw-; 34lbs; 1-2 yrs old; bull mix; 2/28

Scarlette -safe

Scarlette (tan) and Susie

Scarlette was turned in as an owner surrender with her sister Susie.  Their owners were moving and couldn't take them along.  We kept their given names.  HW-; 45lbs; 1 yr old; lab/shep mix; 2/24- intake info rec'd 3/16

Shimmer Pup- Video Video

Shimmer was born under a lady's house and then later  trapped. Mother and sister avoided the trap. The day after she came, very thin, she passed a 6 in piece of jute rope that she had evidently eaten.  She is very submissive, but terrified of people and shy around other dogs. She has begun to let me rub her head and I catch her peeking out of her igloo to watch me work in the kennel.  Note: Very shy.  Community surrender.  Female; Choco lab mix; 9/22. 6-7 mos. 

Sir Brownie- Video Video

Young, playful, energetic, and fun...yet listens well and settles. He is doing good with crate training and learning his best manners. He adores their kids and dogs and has quickly fit right into their foster care. The home doesn't have cats.   Note: Sir Brownie was brought in today as a stray by a volunteer.   He was shy during intake, but Brandi says he does really well with their kids and dogs.  Hw-; 8-10 mos old; 47lbs; 3/31; in foster 

More about me April 18:  Sir Brownie is just a good boy! He is settling in so nicely here. We are working on crate training and he is doing well. He now understands when it is time to go in and he sleeps through the night quietly. We are working on potty training/house breaking and he is doing good with that as well, following the lead of our dogs. He is learning some basic commands. He really wants to please you. He is a young boy, happy, playful, energetic and loving. He is learning play manners from our own dogs and he is mindful and respectful of their cues. He also loves our kids. He really enjoys playing in the yard and likes to have his chew toys in the house. He has no food/resource guarding. 

Sissy -videoSponsored for pull fees IF pulled with friend Gizmo with the goal of adopting them out together.  VideoFeb VideoMarch

Sissy, Gizmo and Sissy

Sissy was brought in as an owner surrender with brother Gizmo.   While she is overwhelmed at the shelter,  she will walk on a leash with encouragement and is always very polite in meeting in meeting new people.  Curious but polite in meeting other dogs,  Sissy ignored the cats on her walk.   Her moderate energy which nicely dials down makes her a nice choice for kids. she 1-2 yrs old; 33lbs;  HW-; 2/3; boxer mix

Shep mix; 3 yrs; 48 lbs. male.  HW+. 9/13.  AC;  He is a very friendly dog that was beat up. He got along great with the dogs and cats we passed in the office.   

Update Feb 5: Skipper is great.  He is a nice not and wanted nothing but to play and receive love. I would call him a shepherd boxer mix. 

Update Feb 24: This is Skipper, dog friendly, people friendly.. jumps a mile high when he sees you.  I was trying to take pictures today and he was so excited .. I told him sit, and pushed his butt, to my surprise he sat.. and was still and perfect.   I wonder what else he knows that we don't realize he does.

Spencer is a very nice friendly guy who just needs a little TLC to be looking his best.  Note: Spencer is a sweetheart who was brought in by animal control because his owner was sick. He has a hurt left leg and is thin. The owner said they were unable to care for him.  He has hookworms and whipworms and is being for both.   Despite all this he is a happy boy with a sweet spirit.  HW+; 28lbs; 1-2 yrs old; lab mix; 3/15

Update March 18:  Described as super friendly,  you should have seen how politely I am at meeting other dogs (both male and female) and also humans.   A skilled leash walker,  I eagerly left my kennel space to join volunteers on a nice walk in the front field.  With my moderate energy level and sweet disposition, I'm a great match for kids of just about any age and showing little or no interest in the cats in the habitats,  they too might be a good choice for me as I eagerly look for my new family.  

Spot Hound- sponsored for pull fees- Video  

Spot is a happy boy who greeted me with a smile when I got to his kennel.  He was eager to be out and explore everything.  Spot is an energetic boy in search of an active family.  He is GREAT!!! We had him out today. He just wants to play. NO cats for him, though. He is not aggressive, but wants to play. A dog his size could hurt a cat with his paws and his exuberance.   Wonderful mingler with other dogs.  Note: Spot 2 was turned in as an owner surrender.  His owner is going into the National Guard and couldn’t take him. He has a lot of energy and is friendly.  HW-; 36lbs; 1-2 yrs old; 10/24/17; male- Perhaps closer to 50lbs on 2/20. 

More about me Feb 21: Spot is a happy boy who greeted our volunteers with a smile when they got to his kennel.  He was eager to be out and explore everything.  Spot is jolly boy in search of an active family.  Our volunteers said, "He is GREAT!!! We had him out today. He loves to play." No cats for him, though. He would never hurt a cat intentionally but wants to play and  could maybe hurt a cat with his paws and his exuberance.   Spot was a wonderful mingler with other dogs when he was out of his kennel recently and very happy to make new friends.  Spot came to the shelter when his owner went into the National Guard and couldn’t take him. He was used to living in a loving home and now finds himself in a very different situation, but he has by now means allowed this to dim his sunny outlook.  Friendly and cheerful to all, Spot would make a loving family member and loyal companion.  He's a wonderful guy who is truly not to be missed! Check him out and see if he doesn't look like just the guy you have been looking for!

Foster Update Feb 2: I picked Spot up yesterday and his first night was pretty good.  As you can see riding in the car he was laid back.  He wanted a lot of love and attention. But overall he was pretty calm.  Still interested in Cats more to play I believe.  Will keep you updated on this.  I took him on 1.2 mile walk this morning and he did very well considering him being in the shelter since October.  He did not have any accidents in his crate overnight.

Foster Update March 29: His first week at obedience school has been a success.  They have said he is very intelligent.  He is young and is a little willful at the moment, but hey my dog Digger was just as willful was their comment.  But he is doing really well.  He loves to be with people.  Before he went to camp he was walking around the house off leash with the cats while I was there.  In fact my one cat was harassing him a bit.  While on walks he will watch cats but hasn't tried to run after them. Again he is on a leash when we walk.  I just really don't know how he would react off leash with a cat running.  He has 3 more weeks to go.

Posted 3/14.  Terrier mix; 2-2-18; 2-3 yrs; 15 lbs; HW-.   Sully was turned in as a stray from Darlington. He had severe demodex when he came in and it was painful for him to be touched.

"Great Companion."  I am eager to share my love and zest for life with you!   It's exciting to be, well me, but once I've had a few minutes to say hello,  I nicely dial down and am ready to get on with our walk.  You could say, I've never met a stranger so seeing a human or doggy come my way, makes me so very happy as I'm about to meet my new very best friend.   A skilled leash walker,  I can be a bit strong heading out but can you blame me for having sat in the same kennel for so many months now?   Perhaps slightly older kids will best suit my energy level and overall size.  No cats for me please!  Note: Thora was brought in by animal control as a stray. She is very friendly.  HW+; 39lbs; 2-3 yrs old; lab/terrier mix; 1/6

Tigger was turned over to animal control as an owner surrender. He has a lot of hair loss due to diffuse alopecia. I treated with revolution and he is on the vet list for next week. He is very sweet and friendly.  HW+; male; 50lbs; 3-5 yrs old; shep mix; 10/5/17. Original name is Roscoe. 

Update March 31: He is a very relaxed, calm guy.  He just seems like an old man.. lol, I can't remember how old he is, but I swear think of an old man and this is him.  I've picked him up, done the kid test thing with him, and he doesn't care.. he's fine with that.  I don't remember cats, although I think he was in the office.. I can do that too.  Tigger is just a companion, happy to see you, sorta a lumberish type dog.  I've given him so many baths and he tolerates them, but isn't that hard to do.

More about me April 12: He may always look a bit hairless, but he has the best attitude and nothing gets him down.  He is a grown dog, not much puppy to him, you can tell he's an adult.  He's mellow, and I think he is beautiful .. regardless of hair loss.  He allows me to wash him, doesn't jump out.. he listens, and another one that does not like to go potty in his kennel.  I really can't pick out a bad thing about his attitude.  He is a go with the flow kind of guy.

This pretty girl is overwhelmed by all the tension at the shelter.  She did very well walking on lead even though she did get startled a few times.  She followed me very close almost clinging to my legs and the other volunteers said the whole time she was following right behind me her tail was keeping up a steady wag.  She needed a few minutes to get comfortable but she was content to sit beside me and receive petting.  She lit right up every time another dog went by.  She was relaxed and playful with Jerry our male tester dog.  Note: Ursella was brought in by animal control with Snow White. She is scared in the shelter but was still friendly and cooperative during intake.  HW+; 54lbs; 1 yr old; terrier mix; 11/21.   

Update Jan 27: Took Ursella out again today and she ignored the cats.  Still very timid when meeting strangers - she tends to hug the ground - but she remembered me and greeted me with a dance at the front of her kennel.  She is nervous going out somewhere new or when there is a lot of commotion, but when she is comfortable in her surroundings her playful side comes out.  She met 2 new doggies today and was fine with both.

Feb Newspaper Bio: Softly Affectionate!  Our super sweet Ursella is doing her best to slip on her brave boots and day by day,  she is making us all smile as we are starting to see her relax, wag her tail and give us kisses.  If you are looking for a shadow, Ursella could be the name of your new shadow.    She will walk very close to you and quietly sit as you pet her and tell her everything will be ok.  Arriving with another dog, Ursella's face literally lights up when she sees other dogs and once she's feeling comfortable, will initiate play time with them.   Ursella is a stunning lady and has so very much pet potential.  A more quiet home pre-stocked with other dogs and yes, even cats will be a good match for Ursella.  She's hoping you're in the market for a girl just as special as she is!


Venus was brought in as a stray by animal control. She was very timid at first but has warmed up to us over the past few days. She behaved well and was very cooperative during intake.  HW+; 1 yr old; 43lbs; lab mix; 1/19

Update March 14: Venus has been hanging out with us for a while at the shelter.  Initially very overwhelmed, she has been gaining confidence daily and she was overjoyed to go out for a walk on Saturday.  She hasn't quite got the mechanics of leash walking down yet so she alternated between joyful zoomies all around her person and putting on the brakes because she was just a bit unsure, but with a little more practice she will figure it all out.  From the giant grin on her face I think it is safe to say she appreciated her time out.

Vera was turned in by animal control as a stray. She is sweet but very scared.  HW+; 7/10/17; female; lab mix; 32lbs; 1-2 yrs old.  Note: Vera is a scared little girl but each time I see her she is a bit more relaxed.  She is very timid and freezes going into a new experience but when she is feeling more comfortable her tail unfurls and starts swaying.  She is very meek and has been fine around cats and dogs.


Vera was brought in as a stray by animal control.  She walks well on a leash and is very friendly.   HW+; 48lbs; 1 yr old; plott hound mix; 4/2

Victor arrived as a puppy with a 6/6 heart murmur, but the vet says he can live a normal life. He has been doing just that in foster care for the past 9 months. He plays very well with other male and female dogs. He is a great mentor for puppies. Cats might be too fun for him because he is so playful and active. He is sweet-natured and loves affection. He is crate trained, housebroken, and walks on leash.  Victor would love to have a home of his own.  Arrival 6/6/2016; 50lbs March 13, 2017; shepard mix; male; HW-

Wyatt- New July Photos!  Oh, so handsome in my new tie! VideoWithZoey

July Pictures- So cool in my shades!

Chasing dragon flies in a field on a warm sunny day, Wyatt wouldn't have it any other way.  Sweet as can be, and a gentleman to his furry roommates.  He's developed a small crush on his roommate Cleopatra.  They romped and rolled in the oasis today, taking advantage of the bright sunshine. Wyatt adores children, and loves going out to adoption events to meet new people. Wyatt gets along well with everyone he meets. Wyatt is a real catch! hw-; male; 5/2014; 2-3 yrs old.  Note:  Shown with
Cleopatra (black dog).

More about me Sept 2017: Sweet Wyatt … I would so love to give him better than what I have for him right now.  He is a great dog, but he is strong and full of energy.  There is no denying he is a pit with his big head and jaw, but to me it only makes him look like he’s smiling all the time.  He is a gorgeous boy and I love him.  In his play he means me no harm, but he often scratches or bruises me just from his sheer strength and eagerness to play.  He has had more than 15 female kennel mates since we’ve had him and never a moment of problem.  He plays hard, but there is no aggression … just the joy of a teenage boy.  He gets overwhelmed with my crowd of dogs and is why I keep him in his kennel.  He does great one on  one.  He gets free time 2 to 3 times a day to run.  He has food allergies and a grain free diet is best for him.  I have had him around children before and he did well.  He doesn’t know his strength, so I had to watch him closely with them but he loved all the attention.   He does great and minds me well on the leash.  I know the odds of getting him out with so many wonderful pits at the shelter are slim.
