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.

Bucket

I'm a really chill guy!

Hi! I'm a very sweet boy! I'd love a home with a bigger, confident dog to be my best friend. I love to spend time with my humans too. I'm very active so I'd enjoy doing lots of training. I love toys of any kind! I'd do best in a home with older children, 13 years old and up. I'd love a yard with lots of room to run. Cats would be fine.

Stoic

Accepting applications through 10/3

Will you help me hunt for treats?

I love food and toys, and can be very focused for a puppy. I like to investigate and explore my surroundings so I know I'm always part of the action! My foster parents have chickens that I enjoy chasing, but I think I could still live happily with cats and other dogs.

I'm a snuggler!!!

Click here to watch Oreo in our Virtual Adoption Fair! Thank you to Blue's Natural Pet Market & Dog Wash for sponsoring Oreo, bringing down his adoption fee to just $100!  I am an energetic and playful boy! I am also super sweet and love to cuddle and get pets. I am happy as long as my people are with me and loving on me. I like to walk, but get distracted easily and need some help learning my leash skills. But I am a super smart boy, especially if you give me some cream cheese! I love to learn new tricks. I struggle with moving objects on walks, such as big cars or bikes. I would love a home with a big fenced yard for me to sniff and play in. I would do best in a home with no other dogs or cats. I'd also do best in a home with children 13 years old and older.

Stark

***FOSTER NEEDED*** *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. Please no apartments for me, I can bark a bit and we think I may get in trouble in an apartment!

Dude

Adoption Pending!

I love belly rubs!!

I'm a super laid back guy! I am very sweet too and love belly rubs. I'm a bit of a velcro dog because I like to be with my people and know what they are doing all the time. I am a little anxious being alone and would prefer a home where I am not left by myself for long. I'm also a great listener and know lots of cues. I love every dog I meet. I do, however, need to be fed separately. I guard my food so I'd need to work on that. I've lived with older children and did well with them. I'd do best in a home without cats.

Bruno

Adoption Pending!

Unlike Encanto, we love to talk about Bruno!

I may look like a big, scary boy but I am all love! I haven't met a person I didn't like. I'd like a home with another big dog I can play with, but I would also be fine as an only dog. I know all my basics like sit, down, shake, and walking well on leash. I'm potty trained and crate trained too. I love to learn!

Butter

Adoption Pending!

Gentle girl who loves her treats!

I am full of kisses and I love to take treats gently from you!  I am a bit hesitant to explore new things, but I know the right humans can help me develop more confidence.  I would probably do best in a home with older, calmer kiddos or teenagers.  I would be fine with or without another dog in the home!

Cool Whip

Adoption Pending!

Do you want to snuggle and cuddle? I'm your girl!

I am a very affectionate girl! My favorite thing to do is snuggle on the couch with you! After a nice snuggle, I'd love a long walk through the neighborhood. I cannot hear, but I am very focused on my person to look for my cues. I know hand signals for all the cues. I do get a little anxious when left alone, so I  will need to continue to work on this. I am so smart and very treat motivated! I may do best as an only dog or in a home with a social dog who matches my energy and can help me with my manners. No small children or cats please. I'd do best in a home with a backyard. Apartment living would not work well for me.

Lexie

I'm a sweet Labradoodle!

I am a happy girl! I really love people and want to be with my family all the time! I especially love to snuggle. I am a bit dog selective so I may do best as an only dog. I also struggle with leash reactivity when I see other dogs on walks. I enjoy playing in the yard, but I need a home with someone who understands my anxiety about dogs on the other side of the fence. Maybe you can teach me that it's ok and I don't have to be afraid. I also really love to chew, so I'd like a home with someone who will spoil me with lots of chew toys and kongs. I'd do fine with older children. I am a sweet girl and would love a family that wants to spend lots of time with me.

Duke

Is that couch for cuddling?

Richard aka Rico

Adoption Pending!

Hi! My name is Richard, but my foster mom calls me Rico. I've been through some tough stuff in my life, so I am slow at trusting people. What can I say? I'm just picky and want to surround myself with only the bestest of friends. Could that include you? I'd need a home with another dog and cats would be okay too!  A home with children 10 years old and up would be best.

Sally

*FOSTER NEEDED!*

I love all the attention!

My nickname is Mustang Sally because I like to go, go, go! I would love a home where I could romp in the backyard, play fetch, and go on lots of walks. I also enjoy feeder toys and stuffed kongs, but my absolute favorite toy is a jolly ball. I still have lots of puppy energy and need a home where I can get plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. I'm potty trained and learning basic obedience skills, but sometimes I forget my manners and jump and become mouthy. I also like to bark, so apartment living would not be for me. I'd do best as an only pet so I can have all the attention to myself!

Sheriff

*FOSTER NEEDED!* Reduced adoption fee! Sponsored by anonymous donor.

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!

Magnolia aka Nola

Adoption Pending!

Waiting for my perfect person!

Thank you to Canine Campus for sponsoring Magnolia, bringing down her adoption fee to just $100!  I'm a happy-go-lucky girl! I might be the smartest dog you meet, and I have so much love to give. I have been through a lot, so please help me feel happy and safe, and get to know me! Because I still need training, I'd do best  as the only dog in a home with no cats, no younger children - 13 years old and older, please. I am also sensitive when a harness is being wrapped around me, we are working on this in small increments so it is not so scary. I am doing really well with this! If I get uncomfortable, you may notice my body language change, and if my boundaries are still crossed I may 'mouth' you to show that I don't like that. My new home will be a patient and kind single person or couple, ideally experienced and comfortable with giving me stability and training I need. I can't wait to meet you, and become the best dog I can be!

Can I romp around the mountains with you?

Thank you to Canine Campus for sponsoring Guthrie, bringing down his adoption fee to just $100! I'm a sweet, active boy! I am very exciteable, and love meeting new people. I can be mouthy and I'm learning to be gentle. I love to play and I'm still working on my manners but I really love to learn new things, especially with food involved. I enjoy playing with other dogs, but I am still learning my manners. For now I need to be the only dog in my home. Because I'm going to need a lot of attention, and consistency in training, I'd do best in a home with older children, 13 years old and older.

Bandit

*FOSTER NEEDED!*

I'm looking for a partner in crime!

I'm a sweet boy! I do prefer slower introductions, at first, when meeting new people. Once I warm up though, I love to cuddle! I also would love if you threw me a toy. It's one of my favorite things! I can spend hours entertaining myself with throwing my own toys up in the air. That's a little bit of my goofy side. I'd do best in a home with older children because I have lots of energy and I can be a bit jumpy. I am fine with other dogs, but may do best with dogs that match my high energy.

Amari

*FOSTER NEEDED!*

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've done really well with other dogs my size in my foster homes. I'm still learning my manners and I do pull on leash, but I'm working on that. I'd do best in a home with no small dogs or cats. Older children, 8 years and older, would be best. A 6 ft, secure fence is a must!

I am an extremely friendly, happy boy! I love my humans. I love to snuggle and even though I'm a big boy, I'm a great lap dog.

Max

Big loveable lap dog!

Hi, my name is Max, I am a 5 year old Shepherd mix, and 65 lb loveable lap dog. I am crate trained and I have learned some commands. I am a smart boy! I am working on my discomfort with other dogs, but for now I need to be the only dog in the home. I love meeting new people and will come up to give you a good sniff, with a wagging tail! Unfortunately I cannot have a home with young kids. I can be too much for little ones sometimes, and would do best with a family with kids over 13 years old. I love to play and have lots of energy for it. Blankets are my favorite toy to play with. I like to bring you one to play tug of war with me!  I am looking for my forever home and I can't wait to meet you!
