Pets in Need (f-m)

Fabian- HelpMeVideo- Sponsored for pull fees

2-3yrs old; 38 lbs (thin); hw-; bully mix; male; stray. 12/1; hw-; bully mix; male; stray. He is a very sweet boy. He's also slightly underweight, but will gain a few pounds in no time. He loves to eat! Adopted Mid March. Returned mid April. Now weighs 53 lbs.

More about me: Drum roll please for the Fabulous Fabian. Now, this is one head-turning fella! All decked out in his sleek, dark chocolate brown coat and snazzy white boots, Fabian is a true friend to all. A very skilled and polite meeter/greeter to other dogs, he seamlessly met 2 males and a female on his outing to our front play area. When not happily trotting over to meet new doggy friends, Fabian had THE best time running, capturing and then carrying around balls in his mouth. It's possible he could do this all day long except if you add a human to the picture, he'd happily take a break, hang out by your feet and implore you to please rub his belly. This athletic, good natured companion pet is loving, attentive, loves being in the mix of things and is of moderate energy level. Fabian would be in his pet element at a doggy park, hanging out with slightly older kids, hiking trails and or just chilling by the sofa near his humans. Fabulous Fabian is well balanced and being a good, solid pet is realy second nature to him. It's just easy for him.

Mini Update April 15: Despite his age, can demonstrate puppy energy. Sweet as sugar. Loves people. When sitting will lie at your feet. Sits for treats. Likes to play fetch. Loves food and his Benebone. Belly rub fanatic. Got the housebreaking thing down almost 100%

Foster Update Aug 9: Currently Fabian is in a foster home and here’s what his foster Dad says about him…”There's got to be someone out there looking for a chunky mush of a mutt. Fabian is 65lbs of pure joy, love and play. We're working on manners, but aren't we all? Fabian is healthy, HW-, neutered, house broken, kennel trained, AND dog friendly. What more could you ask for?! No cats for Fabian. His reactions don't come across aggressive, but he may be a little too clumsy given the size difference. Fabian would love a home with an active lifestyle and a young playmate (or three). He will play until he collapses!"

This is my favorite girl. You can tell she has not had much joy in her life we guessed her age at about 8. Faith is super sweet and loving. She has no hair where her collar once was, I'm assuming it was on for many years. It will take a few weeks to fatten her up enough for a Dapp. A woman walking her dog found her huddled in the bushes and took her home for the night. A/C said she cried because she never saw a real dog in such shape, only on the TV. 27lbs; retriever; 8yrs; HW+; 1/18

Farrah- sponsored for pull fees; treated for HW treatment

Farrah was seized by the sheriff's department along with Motley, Dawn and Lizzie. Farrah is a very sweet girl. She walks well on a leash, and did well during her intake. bully mix; 7/21; 52lbs; 3 yrs old; HW+

Update August 31: Do redheads have more fun? Just ask our pretty lady Farrah! Farrah is a super fun, happy girl always on the hunt for a good time. Solid and strapping at 52lbs, she along with her best friends (1 male and 2 female dogs) were seized by the sheriff due to concerns for their overall care. Luckily for Farrah, her only health concern is testing positive for heartworms and is at a good, appropriate weight- which was not the case for all of her friends. We enjoyed Farrah's upbeat personality and her desire to catch that next slice of adventure just right around the corner! Farrah is a very sweet, snuggly, affectionate lady who is generous with her kisses, hip swivels and her playful antics. She did well in testing with other dogs, both male and female. She is confident and eager to meet other dogs and happily trots over to say "hi" with a full, wagging tail and grin on her face. Farrah keeps the good times rolling right along and would be nicely suited in a more active home where she can get out and stretch her legs. Don't forget to have a nice soft spot where she can rest her pretty head and sleek, toned body!

Fuzzy was brought in as an Owner surrender because she and her sister were killing chickens. The owner said he has had them for 3 years because someone dropped them off at their house. Fuzzy is spayed! During intake she was very nervous but as sweet as she could be. When we walked to her kennel, she did not seem to mind the cats. That could be from her being nervous, we are not sure. Once I put her sister in with her she calmed right down. husky; 80lbs; HW+; 11/4; 4 yrs old

Gary - Aka Rocko

Gary was brought in by AC after getting into a dog fight with the neighbors dog who was on a runner outside. Gary went to AAH for his injuries and he will make a full recovery. Gary is very sweet, walks well on a leash and did great for intake even though he was in pain he could have cared less what I did to him. Gary is his shelter name. We didn't know his actual name until the Officer got in touch with us about him. He greets us at the kennel door wagging his tail. We had no issues or signs of aggression while walking him to his kennel. I made the decision to place him in the back stockade kennels so it was a little more quiet and he didn't have so much going on around him. So far he has adjusted well! He is High HW positive. no age; 10/4; 50lbs.

Gator was brought in by Mrs. D along with Lady and Coco. Gator is a one of a kind goober, he walks decent on a leash considering he had never had one on him prior to arrival. Gator is a sweet boy, he is a little shy but warmed up in no time. hw-; 1 yr old; 46lbs; 10/30

More about me Nov 2: A small girl and her dog!!  It's truly amazing to see how fast Gator was wishing to call our youth volunteer Luna, as his own!  Gator felt an immediate draw/attraction towards our youth volunteer and although he's pushing 50lbs and is a bit of a more muscley fellow, our youth volunteer was able to walk him and handle him.  It's as if he knew he needed to be more calm, gentle and adjust his size/strength to better match that of his new friend.   Gator is truly most stunning in person!  His ears are tall and erect and his body style/frame seem to be more aligned to that of a Dane.  Gator was great in meeting other dogs.  We had him off leash with several female dogs and in testing him with a more pushy/dominant male, he totally kept his cool, was nonreactive and honestly, was just a good boy!   Gator is a polite fellow who is calm and well mannered in meeting other dogs.  Graced with a really good disposition and also a bit of a fun/playful side,  we could not have been more pleased nor happy in selecting Gator to join us for some fun photo/eval time.  Gator grew up in a home with 2 small/medium sized dogs so he understands the dynamics of a pack.   One final note on Gator,  rest assured when you are out walking and enjoying this handsome fellow's company,  others will migrate over to you to learn more about him.  He's a real attraction and he will welcome the extra attention.  You'll have fun with Gator by your side.  We sure did!

Gemini is a very sweet, energetic , playful girl. She wanted to play and do zoomies in the med room after she warmed up. Gemini is HW-; shep mix; 1 yr old; 30lbs; 10/15- Owner said insurance co would not allow her to keep her pet.

More about me Nov 12: Who's turning all the heads?  Our pretty lady Gemini is!!  This stunning black shepard with one blue eye and brown eyes is hard to miss with her happy, waggy tail, wiggly hips and broad grin welcoming you into her fun, playful world.  Gemini had THE best time during evaluation time.  She found a true kindred spirit in Roscoe, a larger mixed breed.  The two of them ran and played and ran and played.   With some extra energy worked off,  both dogs then nicely settled in and politely and expertly mixed and mingled off leash with an assortment of both male and female dogs.   Gemini is young at heart and also young by age.   She will thrive in a more active home where she can be challenged both mentally and physically.  Having a like minded active doggy partner in her home would be a plus to help her be at her best.   We enjoyed her engaging, free spirit and her desire to capture the moment and have fun!   You go girl!

Ghost was brought as a seizure. He is soooo sweet and loving, all he wants to do is lay on you get pets and give kisses. His tail wags will take you out lol. He did great for his intake although. hw+; 65lbs; 2 yrs old; bully mix; 12/2.

More about me Dec 28: In search of a "Top Dog," well I could be just the one for you!! My name is Ghost and one might say I'm the big boy in search of some big love! Arriving on the thinner side, I'm now a good, solid 70+ pounds of doggy fun. Give me space to run and play and I am thrilled. Add a rope toy to my world and watch me carry it around and bring it life! Like to play to fetch? I'm good for a few rounds of that as well! If you forget to take the leash off of me, I'm happy to do it myself and then watch me drag it around in my mouth like a "Linus Blanket." I have a much more dominant personality and approach to others so an experienced human will help me be at my best. I'll admit I truly like to act like the "top dog" around other dogs so submissive dogs are likely the only ones willing to put up with me!! Folks will tell you though, with my big personality and friendly, huggy nature, quite honestly you really only need ME by YOUR side. If bigger is better in your world, I think we could be best friends. Check me out today. You'll be glad you did. Ghost.

Gizmo -Pup- safe

Gizmo was an owner surrender. He is house broken or will use pee pads. The owners worked completely opposite schedules and they didn't have enough time to dedicate to him. He is a sweet boy but is very scared.. The slightest noises have him running away. He did well in the med room with a lot of commotion in the office but anytime I walked back into the med room he ran. He just needs a little TLC and socialization and he will be just fine!!! He does know the sit and paw commands also. See the photo of him giving me paw. 34lbs; 4mos old; boxer mix; 12/28

Groot was brought in by Julia A as a stray. Groot is very underweight. He is coming around and gaining some weight. He is very sweet once he gets to trusting you!! Groot is HW + 10/7; 40lbs; 3 yrs old; bully mix. Jan 1 Cat info from a volunteer: Walked by a cat and he was interested but did not go after. He turned around and we kept heading toward pens.

More about me Nov 3: Almost the happiest dog on earth!  Why "almost" happiest?  Well, he needs a home and then he IS the happiest dog on earth!   Groot is a super happy, grateful, loving and generous dog.  Arriving skin and bones (Literally!), it's taken a good month for this handsome fellow to fill out to an almost normal/healthy weight.  He still has some bald patches in his coat and some overall filling out to do, but he's on the right path to a full recovery from his period of neglect.  Groot is ready to get on with things and YOU can help him.  Never meeting a stranger, Groot is very affectionate, huggy and kissy.  A major extrovert,  it's as if he has been starved of interacting with anyone and can't wait to give back.  A very skilled fetcher,  he will run and chase after a ball and is excellent in bringing it right back to you, ready for it to be thrown again.  He met both male and female dogs and is very interested in making friends with them.  He's a little bit in their faces which some dogs may not appreciate but it's all with good intent.  Very playful, fun-loving and a bit goofy,  Groot just wants to make up for lost time, have some fun and games and make some friends.  He's ready for that next life adventure.  Perhaps a hike in the woods?  A simple car ride?   Some chill time on his new poofy bed after playing ball with you in your yard?  Groot is looking for a break.  He suffered long enough and worked very hard to regain his health.  He never lost hope and certainly never lost his zest and zeal for life.  Check him out today!

Gunner- Pup

Gunner was brought in by a community member who saw that he needed help and tried all she could. She kept him hoping his owner would come around but sadly has not. She was giving him baths/ treating his ear but it was too much for her. During intake he was a very sweet and mellow boy. I did a skin scrape and it turns out he has demodex. He also has some wounds on his ears that will be cleaned with Chlorhex to prevent infection. While walking on a leash he did well, he showed me the way but did not pull. 37lbs; 6 mos old; bully mix; 10/26; reportedly good with other dogs, kids and cats. hw-

O/S- 12/23; 1.5 yrs old; lab; reportedly good with other dogs, kids and cats. hw-; 46lbs


O/S- Had 2 weeks. Seems she's been passed from home to home. 1/8; 2-3 yrs old; 47lbs; lab mix; no hw; Heidi is very sweet and friendly. Her coat is very soft, thick, and wavy along her back.


Hugo was brought in with Brownie. AC explained he was left outside on a chain. Family could no longer care for him. During his intake he is a very sweet boy, but he can be scared when it comes to loud noises. Also when you go to pet him he kind of bends down in fear. While walking back to the kennel he did well on a leash. HW+; 1 yr old; 58lbs; bully mix; 8/26. Given name is Country.

More about me Sept 24: Hugo...a big boy with a big heart! You'll have a winner by your side when you select Hugo to be your new best friend. Solid and strapping at 58lbs, he's had a more limited life experience on a tie out but gosh, his book is wide open and he's ready and eager for some good times. Arriving with his sibling Brownie (now safe), Hugo has his sights on a new home where he can be a treasured pet. Hugo is very loving and affectionate and loves to be in the mix of things. His tail did not stop wagging during photo time and his paw was quickly raised when asked if he'd like to meet new dogs. Hugo met male and female dogs and he was great!! He has some buffness to him and he loves to wrestle so an ideal playmate will need to be a little more sturdy and ready to have some fun! Hugo has dreams of being part of a team in a home environment. With his upbeat, can-do attitude, we know he will excel and make sure all will feel his big love and contentment in being a true part of a family unit.

Hyde- Teen Pup

Adopted as a 4 mo old in August 2021. Returned end of December. Lab/hound/Pointer. About 50lbs; hw neg. 1 yr old.

More about me Jan 4: Built for fun and games, hugs and kisses! My name is Hyde and if you have kids and/or other dogs who are looking to add a 4 legged friend to the mix, I’m the pet to get that job done. Just a year old, I’m old enough to be out of the “puppy” phase but young enough to still learn new tricks and make you proud! I had the best time during my photo outing as I met many new friends. You should have seen my smile and my perky, waggy tail as I played off leash with a curious mix of dogs…male/female; big/small; shy and confident. I was happy to welcome all of them into my fun, curious, goofy world and they in turn joined my world with great haste, curiosity and interest. Very loveable, cuddly and happy to give and receive attention and affection, I am that dog in the neighborhood that everyone loves. Folks are drawn to me so be prepared to share me with your friends, family and neighbors. Ask about me, Hyde and let the good times begin.

Jasmine- Teen

Jasmine was brought in today by AC.. Gary carried her into the office in his arms.. Jasmine is extremely sweet, wants all of the pets and attention. She was dirty and Mrs. Pam gave her a bath. She looks so much better!! She is skinny. Her owner swore she fed her everyday but when the sheriff and AC arrived her bowls were turned over and dry. She was starving and so thirsty when she got here.. Jasmine kept rolling on her belly for belly rubs when I was trying to draw her blood and give her a dapp. 10 mos old; 12/7; 24lbs; bully mix; hw-

More about me Jan 4: Cute as a button! Jasmine is one adorable, silly, flirtatious young lady. She really got to me when she promptly rolled over on her back exposing a belly covered in fabulous polka dots! Oh, my heart be still! Jasmine initially has a cautious/submissive side when you first meet but in no time, she is prancing right by your side on your moderately paced walk. A sporty, “fun size” girl who has lots of wiggle in her hips, she is a bit awkward in meeting other dogs and will get slightly growly with them. Jasmine has a playful, feisty, kissy, social side to her that really blossomed during photo time. The more time we had together, the more you could see how much this pretty girl loves her people and loves giving and receiving attention.

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!

Foster update October 23, 2021: I found Jesse running in the middle of the road on Halloween night in 2018. It was late as I was coming home and I was afraid he would get hit by a car. I stopped the car and went around the side to call him. While I was on one side, he ran around the other and jumped up in the front seat and began greeting my mom, my aunt and my cousin, who were riding with me. He was happy to see us, but I can't say that they were as happy to see him because he stunk to the high heavens! He was skin and bones, hardly any teeth and someone cut his ears back so severely that he barely has any. I took him home and started working on getting him healthy. His intake was done a few weeks later and he tested positive for heartworms. No one ever came looking for him, and to be honest with the condition I found him in, I don't know that I would have wanted to give him back. After he filled out some and he had some interest, I took him to our shelter veterinarian to see if they could age him and determine if he could handle having the heartworm treatment. They aged him at 6-8 years old and said that he was not a candidate for the treatment because his lungs were affected. So, I just kept him on a monthly preventative and treated his hair loss with baths. We had him out for evaluation and photos a few times and he always did well. Everybody at the shelter loved him and said how handsome he was. He absolutely loves to ride in my car and does well out of a crate. He sits in his seat politely and watches all the cars go by. He walks pretty well on a leash for me but even now pulls a little. I have introduced him to some of my dogs and he has done well. I've never had a problem with him. He doesn't really seek out the attention of other dogs. He is content to stay to himself and likes to roam and explore the yard. He enjoys spending time with us but he is not overly clingy and just happy to be near us. I do know that he would not do well with cats and has become a champion snake killer. He would be ok with other dogs around his size, probably not smaller dogs. We do not have children, so he has not been around to test how he would do with them.

I took him back recently (March 9, 2021) for an overall wellness exam and to see if anything had improved with getting him treated for the heartworms. Thankfully, he tested negative for heartworms this time. So that was a big answer to prayer! We started him on Apoquel to see if it would help the last little bald spot on his back. It looks like scarring from a lifetime of flea dermatitis and skin infection. Our vet said that he may just always have that little spot. We have been using TrezUltra to help his ears also. She said otherwise that he was in good health. He likes to run and still has a good bit of "spring" in his step for an older boy. Because of the severe cropping of his ears, his features are a bit intimidating, but I just love his toothless smile. He really is a good boy and doesn't give us any trouble. He can be a little stubborn at times about coming when we call him, but he will come running when he knows he is going to get his treat!

Juniper was brought in by AC from Oleander Dr in Darlington. Someone told AC that they thought she had been hit by a car. She went to AAH for her injuries to her hind leg and is expected to recover from it! She is getting bandages changed and cleaning her wounds with chlorahex every other day unless it looks really dirty or comes off then we change is as we see fit to change it. She is high HW Positive. She loves laying on you and getting pets. walks very well on a leash and once fully recovered will be happy and make a wonderful addition to a family. 9/30; HW+; 3 yrs old; 52lbs; bully

More about me October 26: I'm a real people person.  I had THE best time the other day during my photo outing.  Wherever I turned, I saw a new human and the potential for my new very best friend.  I'm all smiles and waggy tails when I see folks coming my way.  Kids are also lots of fun so be sure to bring them along when you decide to come and meet me.  Found roadside with a horrible case of "road rash" on my back leg, I spent some time with a cone around my neck as I recuperated and more recently literally got back on my feet.  Today,  I am all healed and ready to head on home.  If a loving, snuggly, outgoing gal sounds like your kind of new companion pet,  I could be just the one for you.  Please ask for me, Juniper today.

Lando - Teen- Sponsored for pull fees

Lando was originally adopted from us back in December. However, his adopters were an older couple, and they are not able to handle his energy level. Lando is a very playful, energetic, younger dog. He is very sweet and friendly, and loves to play. He walks well on a leash, and did well during his intake also. HW-; 10mos old; hound mix; 7/10; 45lbs

More about me: Footloose, fancy and free! Our lanky lovebug Lando is everything you would expect from a teen doggy. This happy guy is fun and interactive and is just begging for a playmate! Never meeting a stranger, he's fast out of the blocks and ready to get the most out of his play session. Lando loves soaking up any attention/affection you can send his way and is more than happy to return it 10 fold. A skilled, kissy, crowd worker Lando is clearly wasting his pet skills sitting in a kennel day in and day out. Do yourself a favor today and ask about Lando today and then, let the good times roll!

Update Dec 11: Reindeer, I mean, Lando, sighting! Lando is looking for his forever home and would love to find it in time for the holidays! This young boy is awesome! Always happy. Crate and house trained. Not a big barker (& when he does he has a soft bark-lol). Loves to play inside and outside but also knows how to settle down and chill on his bed.

Lay Lay was surrendered to us because her owner could no longer take care of her.. When we got her in she was very scared and confused.. She didn’t really want us touching her! When i got lay Lay out to do her intake she was a completely different dog.. Gary from AC happened to come in as i was doing her intake and said the same thing he couldn’t believe how different and well behaved she was! Lay Lay is not cat friendly at all.. Her owner also left a side note that she may be allergic to corn so that’s something we need to keep an eye on and take into consideration. She walks well on a leash unless she sees a cat. She is rally sweet but has a lot of energy!!   hw-; 1.5yrs old; shepard mix; 52lbs; 11/8

Update Dec 7: It's almost criminal how much fun LayLay has!  This stunning black shepard is the happiest girl in the county and she's welcoming of all into her playful, silly, goofy world!   Tipping the scales at over 50lbs,  LayLay is a larger girl with a bigger frame and at just 1.5 yrs of age,  she still has a bit of a puppy feel to her.  LayLay is ready to go and do and have some fun.   Nicely meeting both male and female dogs,  she really found a kindred soul in Bubs, a bubbly, male boxer mix!  It was nearly love at first sight and in no time, the two of them were off leash running and playing and enjoying our sunny day in the front play pen area.  LayLay loves giving her humans hugs and kisses.  Generous with her affection towards others,  there is zero chance you'll be able to deny this lovely lady a chance at giving you daily facials!  We were immediately attracted to her tall erect ears, steady wagging tail, smiling face and of course, had a hard time resisting petting the white tip on the very end of her tail.  If having an immediate, buoyant best friend sounds like your kind of gal,  we'd be happy to arrange a meet and greet.  Drop us a line and let the good times roll with LayLay by your side.

Lilo - safe

Lilo- **Brought in with Stitch 1949. Lilo was brought in by AC as a stray pickup. She is very nervous and scared and does not walk on a leash. While doing her intake, she was frozen in one place. HW+; lab mix; 42lbs; 8/17; 5 yrs old; Treated for Hw's 1/20/22

August 31Update: Lilo is a very sweet girl. She arrived as a stray with Stitches who really looks just like her...he's a guy though. Lilo is a good girl who is very shy. When i went into her kennel and draped the leash around her neck, she slowly stood up and even more slowly walked to the front of her kennel where she froze with fear! Poor girl. I wound up carrying her to our front open field where with time she was finally able to start to relax and we also got some smiles out of her. When she was alone in one of the fenced in yards, she did get up slowly to scoot around and explore on her own. She is very meek and docile and wants to make herself look and feel very small. She's not wanting to be noticed. She is not at all nippy and was not shaking when i was carrying her around and did not feel particularly nervous as i toted her around either. She never did walk on the leash while we had her in the front area and we carried her back to her kennel.

Lilo seemed very content simply sitting, relaxing and chilling with us in the shade, along with a couple of other dogs who were with us. The other dogs kept coming up to her to say 'Hi" and she was very welcoming of their advances. I think for her new home, it will be rather important that she has other dogs or dog to help show her the ropes. I think she will be at a loss without other dogs to guide her along. Certainly, a quiet, patient family will also be a good match for her. I think Lilo could make a wonderful companion pet if given the chance. She is cute, cute and more cute and with time and other dogs to help her along, I think she could be a really fun little dog.

Mack- Sponsored for HW treatment for approved rescues

Mack is a very sweet and smart boy!! His barking is just his way of saying hello. He is always wagging his tail when he is barking. Mack did very well in the med room. He knows the sit and paw command!! He likes cuddles and toys!!! When in the med room anytime I wasn't petting him he sat behind me and watched everything going on as if he was guarding me and protecting me. I attached a picture below!! 12/7; 65lbs; lab mix; 3 yrs old; stray; HW+

More about me Jan 3: Mack is such a curiosity with his low grumbling noises of welcome! Don’t be fooled by his funky growly/barky noises as it’s all in good jest and he’s just trying to say, “Hi.” By all means, don’t be put off by his mode of communication because once you understand him (and it won’t take long), you will fall for this guy and fall hard! Just saying. Mack is a big guy with some big love. He loves giving and receiving attention and affection and would love nothing more than to hang out in your lap and or happily play a fun game of fetch with you. Awkward is the best way to describe his interactions with other dogs. He wants to meet them, then he’s not sure what to do with them, tries to approach them again and then perhaps emits a growl. He’s a complex fellow but the rewards for having him as your new best friend surely greatly outnumber any of his curious quirks. Mack was loved by someone and he’s hopeful he will find a new human friend again.

Fetch time!

Maverick is a very sweet boy and a complete wiggle butt. He wouldn't stop wagging his tail for me to get a decent picture so I did the best I could. He was jumping up for pets but it wasn't hyper jumping. He would just put his paws on you and stand up for lovings!! hw+; 4 yrs old; 50lbs; stray; 1/31; lab mix


Max arrived via AC. Max is a very relaxed and calm boy. He is not cat friendly. He darted out of his crate on the van to go after a yard cat. He has a long day and is worn out. He napped in the med room and didn't bother a thing. He walks well on the leash and will load up in the van on his own.   hw+; 60lbs; lab mix; 4 yrs old; 10/25


McCoy was brought in by AC. McCoy is a miniature horse. He is sweet. He knows the sit and paw commands. He is HW: Positive; 76lbs; 5 yrs old; stray; 1/11; bully mix


Missy was brought as a stray from AC. Very sweet. She walked well on a leash for one of our volunteers, and did well during her intake. 2 yrs old; hw-; 7/29/21; hound; 44lbs; TA

Oct 9 Event Update: Missy was great at the Panting for Paws. She loved meeting people and dogs and did so without hesitation. She loved the attention and was especially drawn to children-of all sizes. She didn’t jump up on anyone-just met them calmly and politely and took treats nicely- Although she was more interested in my granola bar than the dog treats!

When the other dogs got excited and barked before the race started she didn’t join in the barking, she just calmly waited by my side. We did the walk together and she was the perfect partner. She really seemed to love getting out. Missy has good leash skills and she kept us at a good pace without too much lallygagging. We were like minded in that respect -on a mission to walk. She wasn’t too interested in wasting time- she had new places to see and sniff- like a good hound should. Missy is a confident, sweet dog with lower energy and good manners. She’ll be a great family dog.

More about me: Missy is such a good natured, sweet, sweet girl! We loved how she effortlessly pranced over to both male and female dogs to introduce herself and then attempted to start some soft bowing down and play time with them. An ideal match for a home pre-stocked with slightly more sturdy kids and certainly other dogs, she is a beautiful lady ready to make her new human(s) smile. Just 2 yrs old and a very manageable size of 44lbs, Missy is a wee bit shy when you first meet, but just hang with her a little bit and watch her blossom into an adorable, goofy girl right before your eyes. Get in on the ground floor of this stunning lady by asking about her today!
