Pets in Need (a-e)


Ace was brought in by AC as a stray pickup. Ace is a little shy when he first meets you, but quickly warms up. He walks great on a leash, and did great during his intake. hound; 54lbs; 2 yrs old; 8/17stray; HW-

Update Sept 9: Happy, handsome hound Ace would sure love to meet you! This sunny faced, wiggly guy is a true friend to all. Just as pleasant and friendly as they come, Ace is an appealing, very approachable fellow that others simply migrant towards! Ace enjoyed his time with our 4th grade youth volunteer and by the looks of things, they were honestly very smitten with each other! Ace has a playful, goofy, carefree feel to him making him ideal for most home environments. He was terrific in meeting both male and female dogs and even one got a wee bit snippy with him, he was 100% unreactive and simply went about his business. If having a loving, cuddly, social doggy by your side sounds like your kind of 4 legged companion, Ace could be the man for you!!

stray; He loves to meet new people and get attention. He walks on a leash- no cats for Alfalfa please. 41lbs; 2 yrs old; shep; 11/3/2020; hw-. Adopted in April. Returned in August.


Anna was brought in Clay 2116 and Gus. They were found abandonned on a tie out. Anna is very shy but once she realizes that you will not hurt her she is fine. During intake we had an interruption and had to blood test cats. Anna did not see any interest in them. She sat in one of our cat ladies lap who volunteers with the dogs and just stayed. HW+; 40lbs; 9/8; boxer mix; 3 yrs


Apollo was brought in as a stray by a community member. bully mix; HW+; 4 yrs old; 9/13; 55lbs During intake he was very sweet and laid back. He does have some healed scars but no open wounds which is great. He does limp on his leg but we have put him on medications to help him be as comfortable as possible.


Archie was brought in by AC as a stray in someone's yard. During his intake he was very friendly and very sociable. While walking on a leash he pulls a little but walks fairly well after some corrections. 8/10; bully; 54lbs; HW+: 2 yrs old

More about me August 24: "Come play with me."  Archie is just the best folks!  You will not find a more playful, engaging friend than our sweet, bouncy bully mix Archie.  It was hard to say if he enjoyed running off leash and playing/interacting with other dogs more than giving and receiving attention/affection from his new set of human friends.  Archie's book is wide open and he's ready to go and do,  give out hugs and kisses and then nicely relax and chill.  This happy faced, friendly guy is full of love and plenty of playfulness. It's hard to not smile when Archie is anywhere near you.   A good solid medium energy fellow, Archie loves being in the mix and involved.  Kids would LOVE Archie and he would love them as well but they will need to be more sturdy as Archie can have a bit of umph to him periodically.   Archie had a mild interest in our rope toys but that soon wore off and he was ready to simply chill and enjoy all of his new found friends.  If Archie had a middle name,  it might be "Lovebug."  Ask for Archie today and let the good times roll.

A girl on the go! Ava just wants to have fun and you are invited to join in the party! This spunky, lively girl is a one dog entertainer as she delights you in running and exploring around and then deftly plops herself at your feet in search of a much needed belly rub. Ava loves to check out what is "going on" and then might be inclined to go her way or conversely, might seek out her new doggy friend and hope, oh pretty please, that they will wish to wrestle and play with her. She nicely met male and female dogs and curiously, she was more prone to ignoring the males and but very much wishing to engage in playtime with the females. Ava is a happy extrovert who would thrive in a home with slightly older kids and an agenda that would suit her desire to go and do. You can't help but smile when you meet this red and white delight with the little pouty lips! Can you say, "Cute!" Note: 6/3; stray; bully; hw-; 39lbs; 1 yr old. Ava was brought in by a member of the community. She said that she found Ava chasing after cars, and was worried she was going to by hit by one. Ava is a very sweet and affectionate girl. She walks well on a leash, and did great during her intake as well.

Update Sept 7: Ava is such a good girl. And talk about patience! She arrived in June and STILL, she is just as upbeat and positive as the day she came in. This happy, bouncy, spirited young lady has not skipped a beat in letting folks know just how loving and delightful a girl she is! Ava is EXCELLENT in meeting, greeting and saying "hi" to other dogs and certainly, she's wonderful with all humans. A borderline, pocket pit at 40lbs, Ava is a compact, athletic lady who loves to run and play, wiggle on her back, give out kisses and work the crowd. You'll not find a more friendly nor loving girl than Ava!! Teens would LOVE to have Ava welcome them home at the end of a hard school day. Adults who might need to have a dog going into doggy day care would surely agree Ava would be perfect for that type of setting. Please, do yourself a favor and bring this girl on home. She does not disappoint and ONLY pleases everyone!

Banjo was brought in with Gus, Clay and Anna from the same property. All had been abandonned on a tie out. During intake Banjo was very sweet but very laid back. He also walks really well on a leash. HW+; boxer mix; 50lbs; 3 yrs old; 9/10


Barkely- lab; 53lbs; hw-; stray; 8/17; 2 yrs old. Barkley was brought in as a stray by AC after roaming around with a female in heat. During his intake he was very outgoing and did well for everything. While walking on a leash he did seem to pull but after being corrected he walked well.

More about me Sept 7: A true friend to all! Our big boy Barkley is such a good sport. This friendly, affectionate, kissy fellow knows how to work a crowd of people and other dogs and gosh, we can hardly imagine how grand his smile would be IF he were swarmed by a bus load of kids! Barkley is a really well mannered, accepting guy who attracts a lot of attention which pleases him to no end. He beautifully met male and female dogs of a variety of personality and energy levels and he found each one just as wonderful as the next. Even having other dogs body surf and climb on him was OK. If having Mr Perfect in your life sounds like a good match, Barkley would sure love to hear from you. What a fun loving fellow!

Bartholomew- Teen

Bartholomew was brought in as an owner surrender. The owners were very sad to bring him in but they were told he would be a beagle mix and would not be over 50lbs. 8/27; O/S; 78lbs; 9 mos old; hound mix; HW-. Reportedly good with other dogs and cats.

More about me from his family:  Bartholomew is very loveable.  He is a bed hog.  He is housebroken. Will sit for food or treat.  Will stay. Gives you paw for food. Has a large fenced in yard 90ft x 80ft. When giving him food or treats by hand, tell him "easy" otherwise he will jump for it.  Make him sit.  He gets 2 cups dry food in the morning and 2 cups dry in the evening.  His last potty call is 11pm.  Reason we have to surrender him is that he is too big for us.  We were told he would grow no longer than 50lbs.  We are elderly and disabled.


Bartholomew AKA Wiggle Bottom has lots of "loves:"  Rides, loves people, good with other animals, loves to play fetch and frisbee, loves to fetch balls, loves to tug, loves cheese and pineapples.  We have nothing he will not eat. He loves peppermints!  He is a pick pocket. Loves playing with hose...light water setting.  To introduce yourself, offer him food.  If he takes it, you are buddies!   A few dislikes: He does not like being told "no."  He will steal food if given a chance. Pulls on the leash.  Loves to chew everything including socks and stuffed toys.  Dislikes loud noises.


Oh, my goodness! Did we have THE best time with pretty lady Becca! This stunning muted brindle delight is absolutely velveteen to touch so be prepared to wish to pet her and pet her and pet her. Just watch her smile and beam with all the special TLC you are bestowing on her! Becca is a fun, engaging girl. Boy did she enjoy playing fetch and more fetch. Squeaky toys were her favorite! When she started to get pooped, it was time to show her new human friends how perfectly sized she is to be a lap dog..uh yes, all 60lbs of her! Silly girl! We had her out with several dogs of different temperaments and she's fine having them very close to her but perhaps due to some insecurity, she will warn them with a quick little growl that she needs some space. She's not wanting any confrontation and is a very peaceful girl but she just seemed to get caught off guard on occasion and would nicely warn that dog of her feelings. Becca is an affectionate lady who is generous with her kisses and wet nose nudges. She is a great girl and we love reaching for her to spend time with her. You too should give her a whirl. This wonderful companion pet would surely love to meet you.Note: hw-; 60lbs; stray; 3 yrs old; 7/12; stray; bully mix; Becca is very shy and nervous. She has a home somewhere, as she has pink nail polish on her front claws.

BoBo was found by Greg V at his job. He took him straight into foster.During intake BoBo was a very sweet and happy boy. He seems like someone is missing him to be as kind as he was.  lab; 6 yrs old; housebroken; hw-; 62lbs; 9/9


**Bongo was brought in by animal control as a sheriff's department seizure. I am not 100% sure, but I believe that Bongo's owner was arrested. Bongo is a little nervous, most likely because he is confused about why he is here, but he is still very sweet. He walks well on a leash, and did well during his intake. 8/11; lab mix; HW+; 5 yrs old; 58lbs


Brooklyn was brought to us by a member of the community. She explained that Brooklyn wandered onto her property, she tried to find the owner/a new owner, and was unsuccessful. Brooklyn is a very sweet girl, and walks great on a leash. She does have some wounds on the tops of her ears that we are going to keep clean, but they seem to be healing well. Brooklyn also has a very large overbite, which gives her face a funny looking appearance. She also has retained baby canines, which will be pulled when she gets spayed. 1 yr old; 45lbs; lab mix; 8/20; HW-

More about me August 24: Loving and Snuggly!  That's our sweet bully mix Brooklyn!  Folks,  you have GOT to bring this girl on home.  Brooklyn is such a wonderfully loving girl who aims to please.  The photo lady had a tough time getting any "stills" of Brooklyn as she was either very focused on the human attempting to pose her or she was busy engaging with a new doggy friend.  Brooklyn is a fun, happy girl.  Arriving as a stray,  clearly someone has worked their magic on this outgoing, gracious girl as she's a friend to all and generous in sharing her love and affection to all.  Brooklyn would be in her element if she were swarmed by kids and boy would she love slowly walking down a sidewalk with the chance of saying "hi" to even more friends.   Sweet and very social,  Brooklyn is easy enough to manage and would love to land up in a home where she can be part of the daily routine and share her already very fine tuned pet skills. Note: Brooklyn showed no reaction to a cat as we headed to the front field area.

Brownie came in a little shy but warmed right up. She was surrendered by her owner (Can no longer care for her) with her male companion, Hugo. HW+; 1 yr old; bully mix; 33lbs; 8/26. Lived on a tie out. Given name is Cin.

More about me August 31: What a sweet treat!!!   Curvy, petite and totally addictive,  gosh we had fun with Brownie on our photo outing.  It's really hard to believe that this little chocolate jacketed pocket pit is only a year old!  She has the look and feel of an old soul who has had a long, weathered life but yet is resilient and ready to make every day count.  Living your life on a tie out surely takes its toll but it's not going to slow down our perky, fun-loving sweet heart of a gal.  Brownie was a delight to watch as she nicely and very politely introduced herself to both male and female dogs.  A quick sniff here and there and she was good to go in welcoming other dogs into her happy, positive world.   Polite and easy to work with,  Brownie was front and center in her kennel and was truly delighted to have been selected for some play time out front.   Although Brownie has had a less than ideal accommodations/lifestyle growing up,  still she has THE best disposition and you could not ask for a more pleasant, well balanced dog.   We can't wait (and I am sure she can't as well!) for her to be selected as a treasured family member.  Oh, the fun you will have together exploring, going and doing and then simply hanging out together.

Bruce was brought in by AC as a Sheriff dept. case, after being found tangled in another dog's runner. During intake Bruce was very shy but very sweet and walked well on a leash. bully mix; HW+; 9/3; 50lbs; 3 yrs old

Buckeye- Senior

Senior- 10yrs old; HW- ; stray; 8/12; 65lbs; lab. Came in with Wagner. Both seized by the Sheriff due to abandonment


Cute little Cardi has no idea how appealing and loveable she is! This sleek, tan jacketed lady is a happy little busy bee who loves to go and do and make new friends. Out of a group of 10 dogs we met on this steaming summer morning, Cardi was the only dog who had any interest in running and chasing after balls. Good Girl! At 38lbs, Cardi is a great size companion pet who really enjoys giving and receiving love and attention. Terrific in meeting both male and female dogs, she was a solid performer in this area and had no hesitations in meeting new dogs and interacting with them. Cardi is kissy, huggy and wiggly and she really makes you smile. We nicknamed her our "Fun Size" girl as she is a compact sweetheart and a real crowd worker and crowd pleaser. Besides, who does not love the Halloween dubbed "Fun Size" treats? Ask for our little pint size lab, Cardi today and let the fun begin.Note: Cardi was brought in as a stray from AC. Cardi is a very energetic, playful, younger dog. HW+; 38lbs; lab mix; 1 yr old; stray; 7/14

During his intake Cash was very happy to see all of us and loved all the attention. He can be very energetic but calm down after correction. While walking on a leash he can pull a little but with a few corrections he does well on a leash. hw-; 1 yr old; 46lbs; 8/25; lab mix; stray

Update August 31: Silly, goofy me! I'm the class clown in the group. My name is Cash and I am ready to make your day. I am a super happy mixer and mingler with all ....humans and dogs alike. I basically need zero intro when I meet new friends as I welcome them one sniff and then off we go to run and play and if they wish, maybe engage in a light wrestling match. The word "playful" could be my middle name as I am one fun guy! Just a year old, I have plenty of kisses, wiggles and wet noses to keep even a large, active group feeling loved. I am not one to sit on the sidelines, so please don't think I would be happy sitting on a shelf in your home. LOL. I am a medium energy lab who is great on a leash and ready for my next adventure. Kids would LOVE me and I in turn would love them. A lot! Well balanced and eager to please, I'm that dog that everyone in the neighborhood talks about as I am so engaging, loving and very friendly. Please get to work on figuring out how I can fit into your home. We will have a blast together. Guaranteed.

Cricket was brought in as a stray pickup from AC. Cricket is a very sweet girl, and loves affection. It is apparent that she has had a lot of puppies in her lifetime. She walks well on a leash, and did well during her intake. HW+; 3 yrs old; 44lbs; shep mix; 7/7

**Cupid was brought in with Donner and 1926. Cupid is a little bit more nervous at first than Donner is, but she is still very sweet. She walks well on a leash, and did great during her intake. O/S- can no longer care for her; bully mix; 45lbs; 4 yrs old; female; 8/13

More about me August 24: Easy does it!  Cupid is a shy, timid little lady all dressed for success in her dark brindle coat and cute little white tipped booties.  Arriving with her friend Donner, she is really struggling at the shelter.  She bravely headed out to the front field area and proceeded to lay low and hoped no one would notice her.  Alas,  that's not how it goes for evals so we had her up and moving and she did her best to relax and hang with us.   Cupid is a bit stop and go on the leash and was tentative but welcoming of other dogs in her world.  She is cautious around humans but can easily feel frightened so slow, easy movements will best suit her style til she is feeling more confident.  A well balanced but not overly rambunctious dog in her new home would certainly help her pet skills develop and help her settle in.  Looking for a bit of a diamond in the rough??  Cupid might just be the girl you dust off to find her real inner beauty and sparkle.  Inquire about her today.

Dawn was seized by the sheriff's department along with Motley, Lizzie and Farrah. Dawn is very affectionate and loving. She has no problems with climbing into your lap for attention and cuddles. She walks very well on a leash, and did well during her intake also. 7/21; bully mix; 45lbs; 5 yrs old; HW+

More about me August 10: It's funner with me by your side!  My name is Dawn and despite living in a challenging prior situation,  my glass is half full and I harbor no ill will given the poor care I had previously.  I am a true friend to all and embrace all new doggies and humans in my life.   There is no shyness in me so yes, I am proactive in asking for TLC, love, attention and affection from you and i'll gladly return it ten fold.   I've added on some much needed pounds since my arrival to the shelter and now going and doing, playing and simply having fun is a great bucket list day for me.  I nicely met a male and female dog on my photo outing and enjoyed exploring my nicely shaded fenced in space.   A more active home life would nicely suit my style and being in the daily mix of the action will help keep me at my best and ensure some good, deep snuggling and napping right by my new humans.  Just think about how fun it will be to start your day with the one and only, Dawn!

During intake, Dee showed no aggression and was very energetic and loving. But as a precaution, just take it slow with him if you have not interacted with him before. He has had a tough time settling in and does not walk on a leash (per his person- and also what we observed). His person can no longer care for him. He reports that Dee is good with other dogs and kids and is housebroken. no hw info; cattle dog; male; 1 yr old; 36lbs; 8/16

**Came in with Pebbles and Ginny as sheriff's department seizure's. Dexter is a very friendly, sweet, older dog. He does okay on a leash, and did very well during his intake. 8/10; 6yrs old; hw-; bully mix; 48lbs

Update August 20: "I love adventures.  I love carrying a ball around in my mouth.  I love giving and receiving attention and affection."  Our big bully baby Dexter might share these thoughts with you and might also add,  "What more could you want in a companion pet?"  We had THE best time in getting to know Dexter.   Although a middle aged fellow,  still Dexter has plenty of get up and go and was so happy to stretch his legs and run and goof off  in our play yard.  The icing on the cake for this handsome brindle boy was meeting up with bully mix Peggy who was a bit of a soul mate for him nicely matching his play style, his mixing and mingling with humans and then searching for a shady spot to beat the summer heat.  Dexter is a confident, interactive guy who is not one to sit on the sidelines.  Get him outside for some ball tossing, some hearty walks and then watch him snuggle and fall asleep by your side on the sofa.   Dexter is ready to get the pet job done.

shep; 53lbs; 7/15; 5 yrs old; hw-; Dolly was brought in as a stray pickup by AC. Dolly is slightly nervous when you first meet her, but is still sweet. She came in with Betsey. It appears that she has had several litters of puppies in her lifetime. 

More about me: My friends call me Sweet Pea ('cause I am so sweet!). In the shelter book I am Dolly. I will answer to both. No matter to me! You should have seen how nicely I met a wide range of pets the other. I'm one smooth lady, if I might say so myself. I'm cool and calm in greeting other dogs and of course, all of my human friends. I'm a larger, more solid shepard mix but I think you will agree in meeting me, I'm pretty easy to manage. I'm happy to putz about and check out the sights and then at least on this super hot summer day, landing a cool spot under a tree really hit the spot. Estimated to be about 5 yrs old, folks tell me I have an old soul feel about me and certainly my face has a more weathered look to it, but it all adds up to a pet who has experience in caring for their humans. I sure hope you'll ask about me today. You won't regret it.

**Donner was brought in Cupid and 1926. Donner was an owner surrender due to the previous owner not being able to take care of them. Donner is a very sweet boy, walks great on a leash, and did great during his intake. bully mix; 46lbs; male; hw-; 3 yrs old; 8/13

Update August 24: Good with other dogs?  Check.  Good with kids? Check. Loving and doting with humans? Check.   Quite possibly the perfect pet?  Well, we will let you decide.  What we do know is that superstar, brindle boy Donner did wonderfully on his photo outing in our front field.   This happy faced, athletic fellow loves to go and do, mix and mingle and has not met a stranger.  Just by luck of the cards (or just no luck at all!), for his meet and greets he found himself with more challenging dogs and gosh, he was just the bomb.  Never getting frazzled or unnerved by dogs who were feeling a bit uncertain about meeting other dogs,  Donner just breezed on in and was a total gentleman to all.  Donner loves to be part of the action and enjoys giving and receiving attention and affection.  An ideal match for a family with other playful dogs and more sturdy/older kids,  Donner is your sunshine on a rainy day.  Don't take our word for it though...come and see for yourself!

Dottie- Sponsored for pull fees

Stray; HW+; 3/12; 55lbs; bully mix; 5 yrs old. Arrived pregnant. Sadly, all of her pups died shortly after birth.

Volunteer Update July 24: VOTED staff/volunteer FAVORITE! 💖 "I know I keep saying this about Dottie, but what a perfect girll. She is one of the sweetest and most gentle dogs I have ever met. She adopted another dog's puppies as her own and was an awesome mom to them. I have nothing but good to say about her. She is wonderful and so grateful for a bit of love! She is the BEST! Somebody has to be waiting on her! How is she not adopted yet?! She is one of my favorite dogs to take on a walk and give treats! Miss Dottie is all smiles and kisses! LOVE! Dottie has been with us since March when she arrived very pregnant. Sadly, she lost her pups, but she accepted another litter as her own and raised 5 beautiful babies. Her days of mothering are done and she is ready to be YOUR spoiled little lady. You cannot ask for a better companion than Ms. Dottie. She is around 55lbs, 5 years old and heartworm positive. Let's get her out of here, please!"

**DUDLEY IS DEAF, PLEASE TAKE IT SLOW Dudley was surrendered to us by his previous owner. She explained to us that she is 39 week pregnant, and does not have anyone who can look after Dudley. Please please please remember that he is deaf. I had no problems with him during his intake, as I made sure that he was aware of where I was, and what I was doing. HW-; 8/9; 48lbs; 2yrs old; boxer mix

Update August 20: How could you not LOVE this dog???  Oh my gosh folks!  You are in for a real treat in meeting our boxer mix Dudley.  He is such a head turner with his cupped/perky ears, one blue eye/one amber eye and a smart looking brindle mask to complete his unique look.   Although Dudley is deaf, he never lost a beat in heading out of his kennel for the first time since his arrival.  He was a huge trooper and we were all so very, very proud at how well he did in interacting with his new human and doggy friends during photo time. At one point, he was scooped up by a volunteer and cradled like a baby!  His smile of contentment could not have been any broader.   In meeting other dogs,  he was terrific.  Even if one came up from behind him slightly startling him,  still he was fine and went with the flow.  He really enjoyed running, frolicking and hanging out with the other dogs (we had him off leash with another male and female dog) and was always open to his new human friends giving him some special TLC.   Dudley is a happy, friendly, very pleasant sort who will far exceed any expectations you might have for a hearing impaired pet.   He made us all smile and rest assured, he will have the same impact on you as well.  Ask for Dudley today!
