Available Pets - Have a Nice Dog

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.

Stratus

Adoption Pending!

So much to do, so little time!

I am a nosy girl who has a lot to investigate!  I like to stop and smell the roses...and the grass...and the chair...  I am easily distracted but fun-loving and curious.  I need a family who can help me stay focused and provide me with lots of things to do!

Lucy

Adoption Pending!

Careful! If you look into my eyes, you may fall in love!

I am eager to please and I make friends wherever I go!  My eyes are so expressive, you can almost hear my thoughts.  I was abandoned by my owner, so I am a bit afraid of being alone for long periods of time.  But once I know you will come home to me, I will be by your side for whatever you want to do!

Stella (3)

If you love snacks and snuggles as much as walks in the park, we may be made for each other!

I am a lovely, playful girl who has a strong desire to be loved.  I am well mannered and I stay as close to my humans as possible.  Small children and fast movements make me nervous, I am just looking for a quiet place to spend my golden years.

Cheeto

Small and Spunky!!

I am a feisty boy who loves his humans!  I am potty trained, and I know a few basic commands like sit, shake, and sit pretty and I readily go into my kennel. I struggle with being touched, especially when it comes to grooming my handsome coat.  I will need someone who can be patient with me and not force me to be touched when I am not in the mood.  I love to go for walks and I hate being left in the yard, so apartment life would be just fine with me.

Breed: Pomeranian /Pekingese

Paco

Ain't I cute??

I am a smart, independent boy who has learned that humans are great to curl up with!  I have always lived with other dogs and would love to join a new pack who will help me feel safe and secure.  I love to lounge outside in the sun and I will happily sit in a backpack/carrier to go for walks with you.  I don't like to be put on a leash, so a family with a fenced yard is a must for me.

Breed: Chihuahua

Astro

FOSTER HOME NEEDED!!

Goofy boy looking for a forever girl

I am a silly, playful boy who loves to chase a ball and to get my belly rubbed.  I have suffered at the hands of a man, so I am seeking a female to call my own.  I am not a big fan of being walked on leash, so I would love a yard to run around in.  I do not like to play with other dogs but I do love scratches behind the ears and snuggling people!  As you can see by the blur in my picture, my tail wags non stop when I am with humans.

Breed: Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) /Mix
Color: White - with Black

Abby

Snuggle, treat, repeat!

I am a happy girl who loves to meet new people!  I am learning that if I don't jump up on them, I get lots of love (and treats!)  I stick close to my human mom - whether we are watching tv together or snuggling in her bed.  I'll bark to let you know if someone is outside, but may lick them to death if they come in!

Shane (4)

I'm such a snuggle bug!

I am a smart, energetic, happy puppy with lots of love to give!  I am quickly learning my manners as I follow my canine foster brother's example.  I love to run and play in the yard, and to snuggle on the couch with my foster mom. I do need a canine sibling to help me build confidence... Will you take me home and play with me?

Darla

Looking for love..and a lap to sit in!

I am a super sweet girl who really needs a family.  I, along with my 8 puppies, was given up by my owner after they were born.  All of my boys now have families to call their own, and I would love one as well!  I am cuddly and playful and can be super silly!  I can be shy at first,  and sudden movements or loud noises will make me jump. But I am really smart and extremely motivated with treats, and I am quickly regaining my trust in people.

Breed: Pit Bull Terrier /Mix

Poppy

Looking for a hiking buddy? I'm your girl!

I am ready to help you explore the outdoors!  I am a bit shy when I first meet someone new or go to a new place that is indoors, but outside it's game on!  I am a 'one person dog', preferring women to men.  I get nervous around couples, and feel that I must protect my foster mom when my foster dad is around.  When mom is not home, I'm all snuggles with dad!

If it moves, I will catch it!

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!

Mixtape

FOSTER HOME NEEDED!!

Lovebug looking for someone to show me the ropes and feed me lots of treats!

My friends call me 'Mixy'.  I am a sweetheart of a pup who is working hard to learn my manners and build my confidence in scary situations (like bath time!) I'm definitely excitable but eager to please, and once I settle in with you it's all about the snuggles. I have a very sensitive tummy so I can only eat very specific foods.
