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.

Guthrie

Can I romp around the mountains with you?

I'm a sweet, active boy! I can be a little unsure when meeting new people, but I warm up quickly, especially if treats are involved. I love to play and I'm still working on my manners but I really love to learn new things. I enjoy playing with other dogs. I'd do best in a home with older children, 13 years old and older.

Valkyrie (PKA Meeko)

World's Greatest Hugger

I am such a sweet and gentle girl.  I love nothing more than to be around my humans, can we snuggle or play? I am a very good listener, and while I can entertain myself and play independently I want to please my human more than anything. I may need some slow introductions to new pets I meet, so please give me the chance to get to know any new furry friends.

Ollie

Ollie, Ollie, Boomerang!

I am a happy go lucky kind of pup! I love to play whether it be with my fo bros, foster humans or entertaining myself with a chew toy or chasing my tail.  I LOVE to run and I'm FAST.  I am nervous in new situations and can be shy or fearful of new people and loud noises, but once I get to know you I am very snuggly and will do all that I can to be next to you, even if it's a tight fit. I'm a good kisser too. I do better with women, it takes me longer to warm up to men, but I am food motivated so snacks help with that. I'd do best in a home without small children.

I am a sweet boy! I have lots of energy and I love taking walks. I am said to be a great kisser. I am a bit reactive on leash when I see another dog. I love to play fetch. I do have an issue, at times, with handling, so I'd need someone with patience and to help me work through that. I'd do best as an only dog so I can be your one and only and a home without children would be best too, please.

I'm super sweet, energetic, clearly trained, and eager to please. I love to be where my people are. I'm a herding dog, so please give me exercise and make me work! I'm anxious, but also very adaptable. If you give me lovin' and I'm facing you, I'll put my paws very gently on yours, gaze into your eyes, and like clockwork, I'll yawn BIG! Like clockwork! (I'm comical that way!) I'm best one-on-one, but I get comfortable with the people who regularly come and go easily. I'd be fine in a home with children and would do best as an only dog.

I can't wait to meet my new best friend!

I'm a sensitive, gentle soul who has been through difficult times. It takes me a long while to trust. But once I feel comfortable, I am an easygoing, playful, goofy guy! My favorite thing to do is cuddle on the couch or in bed with you and sprawl out on my back. In the morning I am so excited for the day, I might even give you kisses! I'd do fine with other dogs and may do best in a home with older children, 13 years old and older.

Sheriff

****FOSTER NEEDED!****

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!

I'm a snuggler!!! ****FOSTER NEEDED BY 7/6!****

Click here to watch Oreo in our Virtual Adoption Fair!

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'm a sweet, fun-loving active guy! I take a while to warm up but once I do, I don't want to leave your side. I love walks and playing ball. I do great with other dogs and would love a big active buddy like myself. When I'm excited I get a bit jumpy and nippy. I'd do best in a home with older children, 13 years and older.

Pancake

Hi, I'm Pancake and I am a giant love bug full of snuggles and never ending love!! My mom says I'm just about the sweetest boy you'll ever meet and my puppy face is impossible not to love.

I'm a giant baby and I am very affectionate, very loyal and very loving. I am always waiting for my Mom to be finished with working and chores for the day so I can keep her lap warm while we snuggle on the couch. I'm easy going, I enjoy long naps while my humans are away for the day and long sun baths out on the porch. I love eating grass. My mom says I look like a cow grazing when I spend time in the backyard (I really like to eat the raspberries off the bushes to make sure they're tasty before anyone else tries them!) I'm much more concerned about getting pets and giving kisses than I am about playing with toys. I don't care to chew on things, unless there's peanut butter in it! I'd do best in a home as an only dog where I can be your one and only. A home with children 12 years and older would be best too.

Kaori

***FOSTER NEEDED!!***

Did you say “walk?"

I am a shy girl who needs time to get to know somebody, but once I'm comfortable with you I will always want to be near you. I'm also a very sensitive girl. I am very sensitive to people's moods and emotions. Please give me lots of time and praise when introducing me to new people as it takes me a while to trust new humans. Once I'm comfortable, I am very playful and fun-loving. I am very cuddly and will be content whether we are out for a long walk, playing, or sitting together. I am very curious, but get scared easily. Loud noises startle me, and I need some reassurance that it's okay. I love to be touched, and will sometimes place my paw on your knee, arm or shoulder to gain your attention and have you pet me. I am very quiet and only bark when there are strangers at the door or near the back yard. I love to chase rabbits if they get in the yard and find squirrels absolutely fascinating, but if I'm on walk I'll be good and just look. I really don't care for the cold weather, but love laying outside on hot sunny days. A home with older children, 12 years and older would be best. I live with a cat in my home now and we are friends. I would do okay with other dogs, older ones might be best.

Sponsored! Reduced adoption fee!

I'd love to find my forever family!

Click here to watch Morty in our Virtual Adoption Fair! I'm a sweet, handsome boy. I am very loyal to my humans. I am a bit shy at first when I meet new people and I will need time to warm up. I'll need to go at my own pace. Once I warm up, I'm very loving. I really don't like being at home alone, so I'd love a family that could spend most of their time with me. I am dog selective, so I might do best as an only dog. I'd also do best in a home without children. I am very treat motivated, know my basic cues and love to learn!

Elphaba

I'll be your shadow!

I am a very sweet and playful girl! I love to be near my people and I'm welcoming to guests after some sniffing and initial hesitation. I do warm up with treats. I LOVE cuddling and being pet. I enjoy laying at my human's feet. I am selective with my dog friends and I would probably do best as an only dog. I do jump up on people and I can be mouthy, but I'm working on that. I'd do best in a home with older children, 12 years old and older.

I am a very sweet and gentle boy! I do have lots of energy and love to run around and play. I'm still learning my manners and I'm very treat motivated. After I play, I love nap time and a bonus is getting to snuggle with someone while I sleep. I love water and sometimes drink a little too much. I'm a young boy and can't wait to train with my new family. A home with older children, 13 years and older, would be best.

Stark

*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.
