Thank you for your interest in our available dogs. We like to get to know the dogs in our care prior to posting them for adoption so if you do not see the dog you are looking for, feel free to put an interest form in telling us what you are looking for in a forever friend. We love to "match-make" and we may have a dog that is not yet posted that is perfect for you. Once we have an interest form from you, one of our staff will contact you (in 7 - 10 days) to discuss your needs in detail as well as the dog(s) you are interested in.
Please note, if you are unable to see the pictures of our dogs, your browser may not be up to date.
I am a very calm, sweet boy who loves my humans! I am great with children and other dogs too. I walk well on a leash and I potty outside like a good boy. I love my fluffy bed and I also love to cuddle. I really enjoy head scratches. I can't wait to meet my forever family!
Color: Brown/Chocolate - with Black
Age: 7 months
I am a very calm boy. I'm great with other dogs. I've learned 'sit' and 'stay' and am very treat motivated. I'm still learning 'lay down,' but I'm a quick learner. I get excited when someone comes to the door, but I am able to calm down. My crate feels very safe to me. Being alone is a little challenging, but I'm working on it.
I love other dogs. I haven't met a kitty yet, but my Foster Mom thinks because I'm calm, I'd be okay with them.
I love children of all ages.
My favorite thing to do is chew my toys and bones.
My ideal forever home would be with humans that like to play, cuddle and take walks. I'd also love to do more training to learn more things and I do love to learn.
I love to be the center of attention. I am very loyal to my favorite human. I'm a quick learner too, especially when there's treats involved. I love playing fetch and I love my toys. I'd do best as an only dog and in a home with older children. I also seem to feel more comfortable with women than with men.
Breed: Welsh Corgi
Color: Brown/Chocolate - with Tan
Age: 2 years
I will need time to adjust to my new surroundings and my people. Once I get familiar with my new family, I'm a fun dog to be around. I do best when I'm the only dog. I really don't like loud noises. With proper training though, I could learn to be more comfortable. I seem to do better with women than men.
I can tolerate being around one other dog, but I prefer to be the center of your world, so a home as an only dog would be best. I'm not a big fan of small rodents or chickens.
I'd do best around older children and adults. No small children, please.
BALLS! I love playing fetch! Playing tug is equally fun too. If you give me a toy that has a squeaker inside... I'm going to get that noise maker out, by all means possible!
I would LOVE to be in a single or two person home and if there are children, I'd prefer older children. I'd love a yard and someone to take me on daily walks. I need someone who's willing to be patient with me as I need time to adjust to my new home. I'd do best an an only dog.
I'm a little nervous when I meet people outside of the home, but I warm up pretty quickly and am really a happy-go-lucky boy! I can be a bit exuberant when greeting my people, so I'd do best in a home with children over 8 years old. I love my humans and want to be with them all the time. I do well with other dogs and would prefer to be in a home with another social dog, but it's not required.
Color: White - with Tan, Yellow or Fawn
Age: 2 years
I can be a little nervous meeting new people, but warm up quickly. I ROCK at sit, going potty outside, hanging out on furniture, sit 'pretty'/ say 'please', getting scratched and hanging out with my humans. I do well with other dogs. I do need work on walking nicely on leash. Leashes are scary to me right now. I still need to work on crate training but treats help a lot! And sometimes I bark at the neighbor dog.
I do well with other dogs. I'm not too sure about cats.
I'd do best in a home with children over 8 years old.
Balls, Balls and more Balls! I LOVE playing fetch and do a pretty good job bringing the ball back. I also like cow hooves, buffalo horns and bully sticks.
I would prefer to live in a home with a yard, so we could play ball. I also really want my humans to be willing to help teach me more about manners, crate training and walking nicely on leash. I'm fine with other dogs and a home with children over 8 years old would be best.
I am a happy boy who loves to hang out with people and other dogs. I would love to play all day long with you and maybe even have a running partner. I do have some anxiety when you leave me alone or if things change in the home, so I'd need your patience. I'd do best in a home with older kids because of my high energy level.
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier
Color: White - with Tan, Yellow or Fawn
Age: 2 years
I love everyone that I meet and love to give kisses. I get along with other dogs and love to make new friends. I do get a little anxious with new things, but just need some reassurance.
I do best with bigger dogs because I love to play rough and run around. I do okay with small dogs and will leave them alone if they tell me to back off. I live with 2 middle sized dogs and a small dog at my foster. I love to play with my dog friends and feel safer when I am with them. I don't know about cats because I currently don't live with any.
I love kids but because of my size and energy level, I'd do best in a home with older children.
My favorite toys are rope toys, antlers and balls. I love my Peanut Butter filled Kong, especially when I'm hanging out in my crate.
My ideal forever home would be a home with another dog to help me feel safe and have someone to play with. Due to being a little anxious, I would do best with someone who is home most of the time. I would love a family who is willing to work on my manners with me. I'd also love a backyard where I can run and play and get all my energy out.
I'm a sweet, loyal girl! I love to chase water, run in circles and play. I do well with children and love to be silly. I have lots of energy, so I'd love a very active family. I would do best in a home as an only dog.

I am a social, sweet girl. I love to go for walks. I am crate trained. I would do best in a home as an only dog.
I would do best as an only dog. I do not live with cats, so I'm not sure about them.
I live with older children and I love them!
I love toys but my most favorite thing to play with is water!
My ideal forever home would be a family who loves to be active and spends time with me. I'd also love a backyard to play in. I'm still learning so I'd love a family who's willing to train and work with me. I'd do best in a home as an only dog.
I'm a silly, happy girl that loves treats and belly rubs. I enjoy life and I have yet to meet a person I don't love! I love to play, especially in water. I get along well with most other dogs. I can be selective. I'd do best in a home without cats or small children.
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier
Age: 2 years
I haven't met a person I don't immediately love! I also get along well with most other dogs. I can be selective. I am crate trained amd walk really well on leash. I love to play and I learn quickly! I'd love to do agility!
I get along with most dogs. I can be selective. A home without cats would be best because I like to chase them.
I'd do best in a home with children over 10 years old.
I love playing with balls and I love to tug! I also love bones!
I would love a home with an active family that will appreciate my enthusiasm for life. I'll need my family to be willing to work on my manners with me. We can learn together and bond. A home with no cats and no small children would be best for me.
I either want to be snuggled in your lap or getting your attention during play time! I have a lot of energy and am really smart, so I need plenty of attention, walks, play time, and positive training for mental stimulation. I am guaranteed to make you laugh with my funny little mannerisms, talking, and all the tail wags. I love my people so much and always want to be close. I also spend plenty of time curled up on the couch and preferably snuggled up with you. A home with older children and no cats would be best for me!
Breed: Black Mouth Cur
Color: Brown/Chocolate - with White
Age: 14 months
I've had basic training and know how to sit, lay down, shake, leave it, and wait for my food. I am comfortable with being handled. I'm okay free roaming in the house as long as there are plenty of chew toys around. I might pull a little on the leash if I see a small animal, but I do well overall on walks. I'm also crate trained and sleep in my crate at night (but I'd much rather sleep on the bed or couch). I get really excited around new people and tend to jump on them, so I still need some work on my manners. I'm really smart and food motivated, and it is easy to train me with lots of treats. I can't wait to learn more tricks with you!
I play great with other dogs, especially when I'm the one being chased! I do not like cats or other small animals, so I need a home without either of those, please.
I would do best in a home with older children. I've loved the kids that I've met!
I love Kongs filled with peanut butter, tug ropes, squeaky toys, and anything tough to chew on.
My ideal forever home would have a tall fenced backyard where I could run around and play, owners who are active and like to go for walks or hikes with me, and plenty of love and snuggles. My owners should also appreciate that I'm talkative and energetic. I'd love to have another dog to play with, but I should not live with any small animals, especially cats. We will have some manners training to work on still, but I promise we will have fun learning together!
I am a cuddler! I love to spend time with my humans. I have lots of energy and love to be active. I love learning agility skills. I'd do best in a home with older children, 10 years old and up. A home with dogs my size or larger would be best too. No cats, please.
Breed: Australian Kelpie
Color: Black - with Gray or Silver
Age: 4 years
I have some leash reactivity to other dogs and people, but I can refocus and I learn quickly. I am crate trained and like to eat in my crate. I get along well with dogs my size and larger. I am a bit of a door darter, but I am a smart girl and am willing to learn.
I do well with dogs my size or larger. I am not too sure about small dogs because I haven't spent time with any in my foster home. I chase cats, so a house without cats would be best.
I'd do best in a home with older children, 10 years old and up.
I love my Kongs filled with Peanut Butter.
My ideal forever home would have a fenced backyard, active owners and lots of love. I'd also love a family that would be committed to continue training me.
I am a sweet and energetic girl that loves to play and be with my humans. However, when it's time to relax, I'm happy to snuggle on the couch right up next to you… or even on you! Because of my exuberance, I might do best in a home without small children.
Breed: Labrador Retriever
Color: Black - with White
Age: 16 months
I can be a little anxious around strangers but within a few minutes of meeting you, I warm up quickly. I also need help learning manners while I'm on my leash. However, I have made great progress in the short time I've been with my foster family.
Although I do like to talk a lot to other dogs when I am on a leash, once I am off leash I love playing with other dogs my size or larger. My fosters don't have cats and so I'm not too sure about them.
I am super sweet but can be a little over-exuberant (jumping up) in showing my affection and desire for attention, so small children might not be the best for me.
I love to play with any toy that has treats or makes noise!
My ideal forever home would be with a family that is home most of the day and can give me the training and playtime I need. No small children, please.
I am a young, silly, affectionate girl who has been living in a kennel for far too long. While I do need some time to warm up to new people, once you are my friend I will be your buddy for life. I am a favorite among staff, students and volunteers alike! I just need that one person who will take the time to get to know me for the lovely girl I am. I don't like to be alone for long periods of time, I love to stick close by my humans. I love playing ball!
Age: 5 years
I stick close by my humans, and I don't like to be left alone for long periods. I would be a great companion for someone who works from home, or is retired. I am a strong girl but our students and volunteers have worked hard to teach me some manners. Now, I walk lovely on leash! I sometimes bark at other dogs or humans when out walking, but I am easily redirected with simple cues.
I'd do best in a home without other dogs and no cats.
While I have played nicely with appropriate children, I can become overly excited. Because I sometimes forget what a big girl I am, a home with no children would be best for me.
I love to chase a ball (sometimes I'll even bring it back to you!) or chew on a squeaky toy. Kongs and other durable bones are great, too.
I'm a total sweetheart who wants to find someone who will love me as much as I love them. My perfect family will be patient with me as I adjust to life in a home. I'd do best in a house, not an apartment and I'd love a fenced back yard to play in. I'd love someone who can be with me a lot and who will continue my training to help me be confident and well mannered as I learn to trust that they are mine forever.
I am a smart, active girl who likes to jump, play, run, and WORK! Give me a job and I will perform it diligently. I have great focus and I know lots of tricks ..I would love to learn some more. I am nervous around new people and I am still learning some manners, but I love to go for long walks, car rides, or to sleep in the lounge chair with my human. I'd prefer a home with a huge yard and no other dogs or cats please. **Exciting news! The Karges-Weldon Group has teamed up with ABRT to sponsor the adoption of our awesome foster dog, Tina!This smart and cuddly girl is looking for her forever family.

Breed: Border Collie
Color: Black - with White
Age: 5 years
When I see other dogs out on a walk, I am not sure what to do! I bark at them, and I think I want to play, but then I'm unsure. I am going for some training to help me decide.
I need lots of attention and exercise! I am wary of new people and will bark at them. If they are quiet and don't pay attention to me, I get used to them. Men take a little longer to warm up to, unless they are quiet and calm. I respond well to treats and redirection. I can jump really high and if you leave food out on the counter, I just have to jump up and get it. .
I love older children! I love to chase them and herd them, and I feel it is my duty to watch over them. I do jump up on them, so kids over 12 would be best.
My favorite toy is a plastic milk jug. I tear up stuffed toys and squeakers in minutes. My foster mom has found lots of good Kong toys for me to keep me busy.
I need a family who will be with me a lot and will keep my brain and body active. I need lots of room to run so a yard would be wonderful, and I would love to be your hiking partner! I would like a family who will play games with me and maybe take me for some fun classes so I don't get bored at home.
Hello! I'm a sweet and shy boy who wants a calm household. I would not do well living in an apartment/condo/townhome, but I will keep your yard free from critters. I play nicely with other dogs, and don't let my age fool you...I still have plenty of pep in my step! I can't wait to love you!
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Age: 9 years
I am very timid with new people. I need an adopter who can commit to multiple meetings over time before I could come home with you. Loud noises are scary so a calm and quiet living environment with only one or two adults would be best for me. I would not do well living in an apartment or shared wall situation. I need a fenced yard. I'm crate trained and dog-door trained!
I love to play with other dogs. I don’t have experience being around cats.
I don't like loud noises. Children are often loud, so I prefer to not be around them. I would do best in a home without children.
I’m shy but I love relaxed and loving people. I’m crate trained and dog-door trained!
I'd love a dog friend to play with me and a big back yard to run around in. I need a quiet home with only one or two people. I love to work for treats! I need to have a house with fenced in yard.
I love playing with my dog friends and chewing on bones, but I also need me-time. I love to rest on my dog bed or near my humans.
