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.

Charlotte

Can I snuggle under those covers with you?

I'm a goofy, cuddly and playful girl. I'm very curious. I love every human I meet! I do have some anxiety when left alone, but mostly it's specific to being confined. I'd do okay if I'm able to be free in the home.  I love to take walks and go on adventures. I'd do best as an only dog and in a home with older children, 8 years and older. I'd do well with calmer cats or with cats that are okay with dogs.

Byron aka Stitch

Did you say "snacks?"

I am a silly, goofy boy who enjoys playing in the yard with my canine foster sisters. I also love a good game of fetch! I'm a little shy meeting new people, but with patience and treats I'll warm up quickly. A home with children 13 years and older would be best.

Tequila

Adoption Pending!

I'd love to be your best friend!

I'm a little shy when meeting new people, but I will warm up quickly. Once I warm up, I love to snuggle, get scratches and sleep with my human. I'm a 9 lb. bundle of energy and I love to run. I am very food motivated and I love to learn. One of my favorite things to do is soak up the sunshine. I'd do best in a home without cats and a home with children 8 years old and up.

Darius

Adoption Pending!

I love my people!!!

I am an energetic guy and I love to play! I am deaf, but it doesn't slow me down. I love exploring my world. I enjoy taking walks with my human. Because I can't hear, I frequently check in with my human to make sure everything is okay. I also know a few hand signals that my foster has been teaching me. I'd be fine with other dogs and I am a bit curious about cats. I am a puppy, so I'm still learning my manners, especially around children.

Amari

I may be big, but that doesn't mean I can't be a lap dog!

I am extremely friendly and such a happy girl! I love meeting new people. I love laying in my human's lap and getting all the attention. Being close to my human means a lot to me. Walks are my favorite part of the day and I love running around outside, especially in the snow. I'd do best in a home as an only dog. I'm still learning my manners. A home with children 13 years and older would be best too.

Stark

*I am deaf*

I'll be your best friend!

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.

Tina

PAW-sitively Adorable!

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.

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, and I really love taking my human along on walks.  I get very excited when I see other dogs 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.

Scarlett

FOSTER HOME NEEDED!

Want a BFF? I'm your girl!

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!

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!
