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'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.
Breed: American Bulldog
Color: White - with Brown or Chocolate
Age: 9 years
I love humans! I would do best as an only dog. While out on walks, I can be a bit reactive to other dogs if they are too close and bikes, scooters and things zipping past me can be scary. I'm working on that in my current home and learning how to focus on my human. I'm a very smart girl!
I'd do best as an only dog. I'd do fine with cats that are calm and used to being around dogs.
I'd do best in a home with older children, 8 years and older.
I love soft toys, crackle chew toys, puzzle balls and kongs.
I'd love a family that can maybe take me to work, or works from home since I feel a little anxious when left alone. Although, I feel better at home when I'm not confined. I'd need to be the only dog, so I can be your one and only. I'd also need a family that is willing to continue to work with me. I'd also do best in a home with older children and I'd be okay with calm cats.
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.
Breed: Labrador Retriever
Color: Black - with White
Age: 12 months
New people and places can make me nervous, but I warm up with the proper patience and praise! I do well with other dogs.
I still don't trust the cat, but I love my canine foster sisters! Although, one of them thinks I play a little rough sometimes.
When I'm excited, I like to jump up and put my butt on others! I might be a bit much for little children. I'd do best in a home with children 13 years and older.
My favorite toys include my bedding and rubber tire, but I enjoy any toys I can shred!
Are you working from home? I'd love to keep you company. I'd love a patient and active family. I also would love to continue training! I'd do fine with other dogs and in a home with older children, 13 years and older.
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.
Color: Brown/Chocolate - with Black
Age: 15 months
I am shy, at first, when meeting new people, but I will warm up. I am mostly potty trained, but I am still working on it a bit. I'm also working on crate training. I protest a bit when I'm crated. I'm very food motivated, so learning is fun for me. I live with small dogs in my foster home and do well with all of them.
I love playing with other dogs. I've been fostered with dogs under 30 lbs. I do like to chase cats, so a home without cats would be best.
A home with children 8 years old and up would be best.
I love toys! I also like Kongs and chews like Bully Sticks and Cow Hooves.
I'd love a family who understands that I will need time to warm up to new people. I want my family to love to spend time with me because I do love to spend time with my humans once I warm up. I'd be okay in an apartment, as long as I get enough exercise. I'd do best in a home with children 8 years old and up and no cats, please.
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.
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier
Color: White - with Gray or Silver
Age: 24 weeks
I'm a very energetic puppy. I am very smart and I am food motivated. I love to train! I am still working on potty training, but I'm doing really well. I am fine in my crate, especially when it's covered with a blanket. I love playing with other dogs.
I love to play with other dogs and I am very curious about cats.
I love children, but because I'm young, I'm still learning not to jump on them.
I love all toys, especially ones filled with treats!
I will need a home that will understand my needs because I am deaf. I'd love a family that is willing to continue training with me. I'd be fine with other dogs, maybe an older one to show me the ropes! I'd need a home that will commit to me and teach me all I need to know. I'd be fine with children, as long as I continue to work on my manners. I have lots of energy, so I'd love an active family!
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.
Age: 3 years
I am great with people. I love getting attention. I get very excited when I see dogs while I'm out on a walk and I might do best in a home as an only dog. I would love to train with my human, so I can learn my manners and bond.
I get extremely excited initially when I'm around other dogs. It is hard to control my excitement. I might be a bit pushy. I'd do best in a home as an only dog. I'm not too sure about cats because I haven't met any.
I am not too sure. I have not met any children while I've been in my foster home. I might be a little over exuberant being around little ones, so maybe a home with children 13 years and older would be best for me.
Ropes and bones are my favorite! I love burying my bones too.
I would love to be in a home where I can take frequent walks, play in a nice backyard. I'd enjoy humans who can give me lots of attention. Training will be very important for me. I sometimes do not like being alone, but I am doing okay with that. I'd do best as an only dog and in a home with children 13 years and older.
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.
Breed: Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler)
Color: White - with Black
Age: 11 months
I have lived with cats and older children. I do fine with some dogs, but will need a slow introduction and very specific boundaries in the house as I tend to guard resources. While outside on a leash, I have only shown positive interest in other dogs. When I am uncomfortable with another dog, I will warn them with a low growl. Typically, I warm up quickly after my warning. I have not had any accidents inside. I am fully potty trained. I love my crate! I am learning to walk on a leash, but I pull and try to play tug with it. I am a bit mouthy and need help to curb that behavior.
I have lived with cats prior to my foster and showed little interest. I show a lot of interest in the cats I live with currently because they react to me. I do better with female dogs that are my size. I have shown extreme resource guarding with the large dogs whom I live with currently. I am working on that. Outside of the house, I only show positive interest in all dogs.
I have only lived with teenagers prior to my foster home. Outside of the home I have not enjoyed watching kids run around. They make me nervous. I'd do best in a home with children 13 years and older.
I love rope toys to play tug. I also enjoy bones, kongs, and other hard chew toys. I would probably enjoy soft toys too, but my foster siblings rip soft toys to pieces before I have a chance to play with them.
A home with active people – think bicyclists or runners – would be wonderful! I have alot of energy. I would love it if you allow me to go on car rides with you daily because I love the car. I need someone with a lot of patience and someone willing to train with me – especially since I'm deaf! I would love a place that likes cuddles and constant interaction. I bond with “my person” quickly and would love to give you all my loyalty and companionship!
I'm a sweet girl! I can be a little shy with people I don't know, but I warm up quickly. I have lots of energy and I'm a very smart girl. I also love to cuddle. I may be 3 years old, but I'm a puppy at heart! I'd do best in a home with no dogs, no cats and no children under 13 years old. I'd love to be your one and only.
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier
Color: Gray/Silver/Salt & Pepper - with White
Age: 3 years
I am a little shy with new people, but I warm up quickly. I am treat motivated. I'm still learning basic cues and manners, but I'm doing very well. I walk well on leash. Sometimes I can be a little reactive on leash, but I've been working on that and I'm improving. I'm also housebroken. I don't necessarily love my crate, but I will go in with a yummy treat or chew toy.
I'd do best in a home as an only dog. Also, no cats, please.
A home without children or older children, 13 years and older would be best.
I love stuffed animals, especially if they crinkle or squeak. I also love medium to tough chew toys/treats, especially bully sticks!
I would do best in a home with a very active family. I'd love a home with a huge backyard where I can run and play. I would need a family willing to work with me and bond through training. I'd love to be an only dog and a home without cats would be best.
I'm a very sweet girl! I'm a bit shy, but I warm up quickly. Once I feel comfortable, I'm spunky and I'm a lot of fun! I love car rides and enjoy adventures. I would do best as an only dog and in a home with no small children. Children 13 years old and up would be best.
/Pit Bull Terrier
Age: 5 years
I need to be an only dog. I am house trained and also, muzzle trained. I really like my crate, as well. I like to go inside my crate and it helps me to feel safe. I know all my basic cues and I'm a very smart girl. I walk well on leash. Sometimes, I am a bit reactive to other dogs.
I'd do best as an only dog. I'd also like a home without cats. I am okay with chickens.
I'd do best in a home with older children, 13 years old and up.
I love squeaky toys, rope toys and plush toys! I'm still learning how to play fetch.
I'd love a home that has a calm environment. I'd also like to be the only dog. I'd enjoy a backyard to run and play in. I'd do best in a home with older children, 13 years old and up and no cats, please. I also want a family who loves to cuddle, but also lets me have my own space when I need it.
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.
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.
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.
Breed: Border Collie
Color: Black - with White
Age: 4 years
I'm a sweet boy and a little shy meeting new people. I do warm up quickly. I like my crate, especially if there is food inside. I love to play with other dogs. I am a smart boy and will love to continue training.
I absolutely love to play with other dogs, it's one of my favorite things! We can get loud and rambunctious but it's all in good fun. I got really excited when I saw a cat on one of my walks and would need to figure out how I feel about them before committing to living with one.
I haven't met any children while I've been with my fosters, but I like to jump, chase, and gently nip when I'm excited, so I'd probably do best around children over 13.
I like Kongs stuffed with my favorite foods, and NylaBones. Tennis balls are also fun to chase but I'd prefer to be playing with another dog or human instead of an inanimate object!
My ideal forever home would have another dog who likes to play, and a yard with at least a six foot fence! I am learning how to work for treats, and I would like to continue my undergrad in good boy-ism! A home without cats or small children would be ideal, along with a family who has a lot of love (and belly rubs) to give!
I'm a sweet girl. I am a bit shy meeting new people, at first, but I will warm up. Once I warm up, I love to snuggle and be with you at all times. I'm very food motivated. I'm good with other smaller dogs and would be okay with cats. I'd like a home with children 8 years old and up.
Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - with White
Age: 15 months
I'm a little shy when first meeting people, but with treats I warm up quickly. I'm still working on potty training, but I'm doing much better. I can be a bit vocal when crated or left behind, but I do settle down eventually. I've been in foster with dogs under 30 lbs. and do well with all of them. I do, however, appropriately stand up to dogs that are pushy with me. I'm fine with cats, but I will sometimes chase them.
I live with smaller dogs and I do well with them. I live with cats too, and I do okay. Sometimes I do chase them.
I'd do best in a home with children 8 years old and up.
I LOVE project toys like my Kong! I also like chews like Bully Sticks, Cow Hooves and Buffalo Horns.
I'd love a home that will be patient with me when meeting new people. I would do fine with other dogs and cats too. I'd prefer a home with children 8 years old and up. I'd love a home where I can snuggle with my favorite humans.
I'm a gentle, sweet, social boy! I have lots of energy, so I'd love an active family. I am also very smart and love to stay busy. I'm learning my manners and I'm very treat motivated. I'm also known as a great cuddler. I'd do best as an only dog and in a home with older children, 13 years old and up.
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier
Color: White - with Black
Age: 13 months
I am very social and love every person I meet! I am high energy and I love to work and train and stay busy. I'd probably do best as an only dog. I can be a bit reactive on leash when I see other dogs, but I'm working on that. I have lots of puppy energy and am still learning my manners. I do like to chew things, so I need lots of project toys. I do well in my crate.
I'd do best as an only dog and no cats, please.
I have lots of energy and may be a bit too much for small children. I'd probably do best in a home with older children, 13 years old and up.
I love my Kong, rope toys and bones filled with yummy treats.
I need an active family and one that is willing to work with me and keep me busy. I love attention and I really enjoy being with my humans. I'd love a yard to run and play in. I'd also do best as an only dog and in a home with children, 13 years and older.
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.
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.
