Available Dogs

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.

Bane

"Will do anything for food and love!"

I am a super silly, excited boy that will greet you with butt swishes and shakes. I am extremely smart and will do just about anything for food.  I know all my basic cues and a couple of other silly things that will make you laugh.  I enjoy running around, playing hide and seek, car rides, and did I mention food?  Please know I'm not the best on a leash--I am not a fan of things that move and I might lunge if it gets too close--I will require someone who is willing to continue to work with me on that.  I'd do best in a home with children 13 years old and older, and probably as an only dog.

Goofy, loyal snuggler with dashing good looks!

I am a bundle of pure, goofy love!  I am very human oriented, and I love to play as well as learn. I am a very chill boy. I like relaxing with my human. I'd do fine with other dogs and I did live with a cat in my previous home. I'd probably do best with children 13 years old and older.

Pancake

Hi, I'm Pancake and I am a giant love bug full of snuggles and never ending love!! My mom says I'm just about the sweetest boy you'll ever meet and my puppy face is impossible not to love.

I'm a giant baby and I am very affectionate, very loyal and very loving. I am always waiting for my Mom to be finished with working and chores for the day so I can keep her lap warm while we snuggle on the couch. I'm easy going, I enjoy long naps while my humans are away for the day and long sun baths out on the porch. I love eating grass. My mom says I look like a cow grazing when I spend time in the backyard (I really like to eat the raspberries off the bushes to make sure they're tasty before anyone else tries them!) I'm much more concerned about getting pets and giving kisses than I am about playing with toys. I don't care to chew on things, unless there's peanut butter in it! I'd do best in a home as an only dog where I can be your one and only. A home with children 12 years and older would be best too.

I army crawl for cuddles!

I am a fun, loving and confident girl. I love giving hugs and cuddles to my humans. I am full of energy so I love long walks. I really enjoy car rides! I am very bonded to Ruthie, so we would want to go to a home together. A home with older children, 10 years and older, would be best.

Ruthie

Adoption Pending!

I'm a cuddly teddy bear!

I am a bit shy when meeting new people and will need time to warm up. Once I've warmed up, I'm as sweet as can be. I am a little more uncomfortable with men and it does take me a bit longer to warm up. I am always more comfortable when Dutchess is with me. I love long walks and car rides! I'd do best in a home with older children, 10 years old and older.

Kaori

***FOSTER NEEDED!!***

Did you say “walk?"

I am a shy girl who needs time to get to know somebody, but once I'm comfortable with you I will always want to be near you. I'm also a very sensitive girl. I am very sensitive to people's moods and emotions. Please give me lots of time and praise when introducing me to new people as it takes me a while to trust new humans. Once I'm comfortable, I am very playful and fun-loving. I am very cuddly and will be content whether we are out for a long walk, playing, or sitting together. I am very curious, but get scared easily. Loud noises startle me, and I need some reassurance that it's okay. I love to be touched, and will sometimes place my paw on your knee, arm or shoulder to gain your attention and have you pet me. I am very quiet and only bark when there are strangers at the door or near the back yard. I love to chase rabbits if they get in the yard and find squirrels absolutely fascinating, but if I'm on walk I'll be good and just look. I really don't care for the cold weather, but love laying outside on hot sunny days. A home with older children, 12 years and older would be best. I live with a cat in my home now and we are friends. I would do okay with other dogs, older ones might be best.

Cashew

"I'm your sweet, funny boy! Give me a little love and I'll give you a ton right back!"

I'm super sweet, energetic, clearly trained, and eager to please. I love to be where my people are. I'm a herding dog, so please give me exercise and make me work! I'm anxious, but also very adaptable. If you give me lovin' and I'm facing you, I'll put my paws very gently on yours, gaze into your eyes, and like clockwork, I'll yawn BIG! Like clockwork! (I'm comical that way!) I'm best one-on-one, but I get comfortable with the people who regularly come and go easily. I'd be fine in a home with children and would do best as an only dog.

I'm a very smart girl and I'm very food motivated. I love squeaky toys!  I do well with other dogs and would need to be in a home with another social dog to help me with my confidence. I'd do best in a home with older children, 12 years old and older. No cats, please.

Elphaba

I'll be your shadow!

I am a very sweet and playful girl! I love to be near my people and I'm welcoming to guests after some sniffing and initial hesitation. I do warm up with treats. I LOVE cuddling and being pet. I enjoy laying at my human's feet. I am selective with my dog friends and I would probably do best as an only dog. I do jump up on people and I can be mouthy, but I'm working on that. I'd do best in a home with older children, 12 years old and older.

Danica aka Dani

Looking for a heart to cling to? I'm your girl!

I'm a sweet girl! I love to give kisses and when I'm extra excited that can feel a little nibbly. I have some energy initially, but eventually become laid back as I settle in. I still get excited to see humans when they come home, but then will go back to sleep. I sleep a lot, but do occasionally wake up to bark at loud noises outside.  I do like to hide in my crate when I hear something that startles me. I bark at guests when they come in, but quickly try to get attention from them. I sometimes try to sneak out of the door behind my people. I do come back, but like to run in circles for a minute and sometimes greet the neighbors if they're out. I'm nervous out on walks and don't always like to walk too far, but I do enjoy going out for a little bit. I love baths and will often sit in the shower and wait to be bathed. A home with other dogs would be fine and a home with children 10 years and older would be best. No cats, please.

Sheriff

Can we play?

I am a happy boy and I love to play with my friends, whether they are human or dogs! I sometimes am a little nervous meeting new people, and I am also nervous when new people come to the door. I will get more training to help me with this! When I am home, I love getting pet and will snuggle up close to get belly rubs.  Smelling things is my favorite hobby, whether it be around the house or on walks.  I love to be outside exploring the sights and the sounds of the yard.  I get very excited when I see other dogs while on walks and I want to go up to them and say hello.  If I get too overwhelmed, however, I can be pretty noisy.  I'm an adventurer at heart, so if I am left alone outside too long, I may get bored and decide to go explore the neighborhood, despite the fence. I'd do best in a home with children 13 years and older. Another dog is a must!

I’d love it if I could be your new cuddle buddy!

I am a very sweet and gentle boy! I do have lots of energy and love to run around and play. I'm still learning my manners and I'm very treat motivated. After I play, I love nap time and a bonus is getting to snuggle with someone while I sleep. I love water and sometimes drink a little too much. I'm a young boy and can't wait to train with my new family. A home with older children, 13 years and older, would be best.

Stark

*I am deaf*

Can we do everything together?

I am looking for my forever best friend! My personality is the epitome of what it means to be a Heeler. I want to be around my person and always touching them when we are together. I love to play tug, chew bones, and get exercise. If I can cuddle while doing so, even better! Most importantly, I LOVE CARS! I always want to hop in the car or truck. I am afraid of new experiences, but I am brave. As long as I can smell around, I will warm up to the new person, place, or thing. Although I am deaf, I constantly check in and read the social cues given by people and other animals, as well. I'd do best in a home with children 13 years and older.

Jaylen aka JJ

I'll be your best friend forever and never want to leave your side!

I am a very sweet, gentle boy! I am a little shy, at first, when meeting new people, but I will warm up quickly. Once I warm up, I love being with my human. I enjoy hiking and spending time outside. I do get a little car sick on car rides. I'd need a home with another dog because I love other dogs and their companionship. I'd also do best in a home where someone is home most of the time because I don't really like to be all alone.  I'd like a home with children 8 years old and older. When I first go to a new home, I'd need to be supervised closely because I can be a bit of an escape artist. A home without cats would be best too. Another dog in the home is a must.
