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.

Hallie

Will you pet my butt please?

I am a sweet, gentle, soft, fluffy pup and I'm ready for an adventure!  I get a little nervous meeting new people, but once I trust you, I expect butt scratches right away- and if you stop scratching me, I'll remind you to please continue. I like my personal space, but I equally love hugs and kisses at the right time too. I love my kennel, I use it for naps and sometimes to sleep at night, or just to feel safe. I have a very silly personality and sometimes when I shake my head my tongue flops out since I'm missing a tooth- it's a cool trick of mine. I love sleeping and playing with my two other dog siblings all day. I also have super cool eyes, but they just need some eyedrops everyday so that I can see better, but I'll just lay here while you put them in for me! I love being outside, especially with a few inches of snow on my back in a little dirt bed I made myself. Hiking, camping, rock climbing- lets go! I'm always looking for a reason to get on my harness and get out of the house to explore and I love a car ride! Dog parks are some of my favorite places to be and I love swimming in creeks too.

Onyx

****ADOPTION PENDING****

I’m a goofy, cuddly little ball of energy! And I wanna explore the world!

I love running behind my people all day long at home! I love going to dog parks and playing with other dogs. Fresh cut grass and digging gives me the zoomies! I enjoy greeting people, but my excitement frequently gets the best of me, and I can't help but jump up to say hello. I am working on my speaking skills but sometimes I have to let you or the dog walking by know what's on my mind. I am a quick learner, though, especially when treats are involved. Sit? Stay? Heel? Come? Easy peasy! Treats are my weakness, and I'd do just about anything for a tasty reward.

Will give kisses for treats!

I am a very loving girl! I can be a bit unsure of new people at first but once I get to know them, I love them. I like to be petted and give kisses. I'm a velcro pittie girl to my family. I have lots of energy and want to play, play, play! I also love adventures. Sometimes I am reactive on leash but I do very well off leash with other dogs. I love children!

Kimber

****ADOPTION PENDING****

It's going down, I'm yelling Kimber, I love to cuddle, I love to move.

My name is Kimber, 'Kimby Jones,' and I'm an oversized lap dog who loves to cuddle and look longingly into your eyes because personal space doesn't exist. When not laying across my owner's chest, I love sunbathing on the porch, going for walks and practicing my tricks (sit, place, say hello, and down). I'm very food motivated and get so excited during breakfast and dinner that I do my tippy-tap dance with my paws and sometimes howl in excitement. I'm not very high energy and I'm not into chewing. When I need to potty I will hop off the couch and stare into your soul until you let me out. Cuddling on the couch until I fall into a deep, snoring sleep is my favorite activity. I'm a little shy at first, but if you give me safe space to hide (like under the desk or dining table) I'll warm up to you when I feel safe.

Lina

I'm a sweet, shy girl who loves to cuddle!

I'm a very shy girl that can take a moment to warm up to people and I can be anxious in new situations. But once I know I can trust you and I feel comfortable, I am very affectionate and cuddly. I am an excellent heater dog that likes to crawl under the blankets with you at night. I would do best as an only dog. I can live with cats.

Rigatoni AKA Toni

Pasta-tively adorable!

I'm an energetic guy who knows how to have fun! I love to play and goof around, but I'm also a fan of cuddling on the couch. I'm definitely a lap dog! My foster mom says I'm a great communicator and know how to express myself. Don't worry, I'm not much of a barker. I'm soft spoken and usually huff and puff instead.

JuJuBe

Like the fruit, not the candy

I didn't have the best start to live, but I'm ready to learn how to be a dog! I do not understand how to walk on a leash and I freeze when you try and pick me up. I am very nervous as I learn and do not like to be touched. But still, I am a good dog, I just need patience.

Zara

I’m energetic and goofy, cuddly and kissy, and there is nothing I like more than being chased!

I like my crate and I enjoy chewing on bones and sticks. I also like taking socks to my crate when nobody is looking. I'm a big puppy and scared of new situations and do best with a dog friend to help me feel safe.  I love dogs but I can be occassionally selective. I want to play with cats but they don't understand my play bows. That's okay ! I'm pretty good at listening to corrections and giving smaller dogs and cats space if they want it.

Percy

****FOSTER NEEDED****

I love everyone!

I'm a happy, bouncy girl who loves meeting new people. Sometimes I get so excited that I jump and get mouthy, but I'm working on keeping my paws on the ground and sitting politely for pets. I am potty trained and never make a mess in my kennel. I love treats and take them extremely gently. I am just starting to learn some basic obedience cues but I am very smart and learning quickly.

My name is Sarah Jane but it should be GiGi, short for the goodest girl

Sarah Jane is an extremely docile doggo with her hoomans and she is ridiculously sweet and loving. She will play when initiated but otherwise, she is pretty low key.

Bandit

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.

Harper

I am a love bug with lots to say!

I always know what I want and I will tell you ALL about it! I love to learn new things and play fetch! I am looking for a family that loves to hike and train! I have had some agility dog training and know my basic commands very well! I do not like new people in my home (I am working on it but i just get protective of my family's space) but do really well at social events and the dog park. I may not seek out other people's attention, but I will always seek yours out! I love following my people around and being the center of attention. I do well being left at home while your at work or running errands as long as you make sure I get all your attention once you get back!

Heala

Who says I'm too big to be a lap dog?

I'm a snuggle bug with my people and have no concept of personal space. I want to be involved in everything you're doing! I love going for walks but I do pull. Maybe you can help me learn some leash skills? I like to inhale my food because it's just so yummy, so I have to use a slow feeder at mealtimes.
