Tasha (aka Natasha) is looking for her furever home. She has a beautiful brindle coat and a pretty face that you can't forget. At 6-7 years old, she enjoys a lot of snuggle time on the couch after her playtime.  Tasha plays well with other dogs large and small at her foster home and does not bother cats. She is extremely loving with people. Due to her resource guarding (food, toys)  with other dogs (not people), it is best that she be the only dog in the home.  She is crate trained, housebroken. HW negative, 60 lbs. She loves to ride in the car and will hop right in and lie on the back seat.  Due to Natasha's strength and playfulness, homes with children under age 12 are not recommended.  Posted July 2019


Male; 9/1; 1 year old; HW- ; Lab mix. stray. No weight. O'Neal is a sweet lively boy. He wanted to meet every one-dogs and cat.   His injuries are not new. They have began to scab over. Could have been rolled by car, going under something and scrapped his back and head, really not sure.  The wounds are not hurting, they are healing, and they are not keeping him from enjoying life.

Looking for a sweet companion who just sits close by, listening to all of your problems without judging? Look no further. Orla is a loyal girl who enjoys running and playing but also is happy to just lie by you in the shade, coming over for an occasional pat on the head and scratch behind the ears. She was so happy just having someone nearby to look over and smile at, happy to be out of the dog kennel and to have someone to herself. She walks nicely on a leash and enjoys every minute of her walk with you.female; stray; shep mix; 48lbs; 2-3 yrs old; 7/14; HW+

Patch never met a stranger!  He will always come up to say “hello” to any new person or dog that he has not met. And then he will wait for some “oohs and awws” about how handsome he is, along with some snuggles and pets. Next he will try to take a run up and down the fence line with the dog in the next pen. He likes to bounce around and play in whatever way he can when he gets out to the exercise yard. Mr. Photogenic always takes a good picture.
Patch is a sweet boy, very bouncy and happy. He was a very good boy while we did his intake. He just needs someone with enough time and space for him to get his energy out. Note: Patch is a sweet boy, very bouncy and happy. He was a very good boy while we did his intake.   O/s- 7/22; HW-; 51lbs; 1 yr old; lab mix

Peggy Sue

female; blue tick hound; came in with Dolly; O/S- no reason given; HW+; 49lbs; 4 yrs old. Peggy Sue is a vocal, sweet, and energetic girl. She walks well on a leash, and loves for all of the attention to be on her. 8/29

Rigby -safe

male; hound; stray 1-2 yrs old; 28lbs; 8/18; HW-


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.  31lbs; 7/18/2015; HW-; 3 yr old shep mix

Update Dec 2018: River is about 5-6 years old. She has degenerative joint disease in her back knees, luxating patellas, and a torn ACL that has reattached with scar tissue. Surgery to correct all this would be about $8,000. Right now she in on an anti-inflammatory , pain-reducing regimen. River is an alpha. She gets along with most male dogs who will let her be the queen bee. She does not get along with most female dogs. River is great with all humans and tolerant with children and puppies. She loves to ride in the car and go on leash walks. She loves to run, but is in pain afterward.


Rooster is sooo sweet and loving. He was a very good boy for his intake and just let us do whatever we needed to do. He would take his paw and tap you for more pets♥️ He’s very affectionate, calm and laid back. 
He had 2 spots of hair loss. On the right side of his face and on his back. It looked like the hair was starting to grow back so I’m not sure what it was. He also had 2 small lumps/masses. One on his front right leg and one on the right side of his face. Both didn’t seem to be painful and they were soft.  He was also high hw positive.  boxer mix; male; stray; 7/27; 4-5 yrs old; 56lbs


female; boxer mix; stray; 28lbs; 1-2 yrs old; HW-; 9/14


Arrived as a pregnant stray in a home 2 months ago.  Sadly,  all the pups died.  The family could no longer afford to care for her.  She is reportedly good with other dogs and kids. No cats!!  8/15; HW+; 4-5 yrs old; 51lbs.  Note: While doing intake, this girl was very playful and rambunctious. Her personality shows once she is out of the kennel. She did well with intake procedures. 

Foster Family Detail: Roxanne never had any accidents in the house, loved to go for car rides, got along fine with the other dog in the home, and loved the little girl in the home (age 6). Roxanne tolerated playing dress up, wearing clothes, shades, angel/butterfly wings, and tiaras. They didn't have a fenced in yard so when the child was outside playing with her, Roxanne was on the chain some, but when they went inside, Roxanne went inside too. They had an outside kennel to use as desired for both dogs. They never tried crating her inside and said she never bothered anything in the house so they felt no need. After she lost her pups, she slept in bed with the 6 year old, under the covers with her head on a pillow. She snuggles close when she sleeps. She napped on the couch or recliner. She was also around a 3 yr old and a 13 year old and did fine. She will jump some to give hugs so age 6+ seems just right. When she was walked on leash by kids, she never pulled. They said she was really great about this. The adults would walk her and she would pull some because she preferred to be walked by the kids, wanted to be where they were all the time. She was walked on a harness, not a collar. She LOVES water. She will get into the bathtub with a child if allowed. She will get in even when it's dry and she will wait to see if you are coming for the bath. She only barked if someone came to the door or if she heard a loud noise in the yard. The home didn't have any cats. The family said she had an inconsistent cough the week they brought in. No cough was heard prior. They really enjoyed having Roxanne and had no weaknesses to report in her personality or behavior.

Whitney was brought in by a member of the community as a stray. Found on Abbott rd. Darlington.  Whitney is a very sweet mellow girl. HW-; 48lbs; 5+ yrs old; hound mix; 5/7/2019

Whitney is a medium energy girl. She loves going for walks (and working out her sniffer) and loves rides on the car. She gets so excited when the leash comes out. She gets along well with other dogs. Prefers dogs that respect her space but she has tolerated the parade of fosters that come through here even the puppies. She is not a big fan of toys but likes to have a chew bone and she enjoys playtime with another polite dog.  I think she might be put off by a very pushy high-energy dog. 

She likes to snuggle on the couch and she loves being close to her person. When I was working from home she made herself a spot beside my desk for napping. She is calm in the house and spends most of her day napping. Whitney would love to have a person who is home a lot - works from home or retired. She gets anxious when left home alone and needs to be crated or she may make a mess.  She gets anxious and clingy during thunderstorms.  Beautiful sweet girl who gets along with everyone. 

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

July 2017 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.


O/S- moving; bully; 2 yrs old; HW+; 7/25; 67lbs; 7/25. came in with Cookie.
