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.

Magnolia aka Nola

Reduced adoption fee! Sponsored by Canine Campus ****URGENT! FOSTER NEEDED****

Waiting for my perfect person!

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!

Oreo

Reduced adoption fee! Sponsored by Blue's Natural Pet Market & Dog Wash

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 $65!  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.

Guthrie

Reduced adoption fee! Sponsored by Canine Campus ***FOSTER NEEDED!***

Can I romp around the mountains with you?

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.

Richard aka Rico

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.

Elphaba

***FOSTER NEEDED!***

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, as I am very food motivated! I LOVE cuddling and being pet, and really crave attention. I am working on not barking for my attention. I enjoy laying at my human's feet, and feel happiest by your side! I am reactive and uncomfortable with new dogs, so I would probably do best as an only dog. I have met cats before and I am not fond of them either. I do jump up on people and I can be mouthy, but I'm working on that. I am a bit too excitable for younger kids, so I'd do best in a home with older children, 12 years old and older. I will need a backyard in my home, so no apartments 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.  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!

Jasper

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.

Mac

I am shy at first, but once I get to know you I will be your best friend!

I'm a sweet boy! I am a bit shy when meeting new people. I will bark with loud, deep barks, but I will warm up quickly. I do well with other dogs, but can be a little pushy, at times. I love treats! I also love to train. I'd do best in a home with older children, 13 years old 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.

Freckles

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!

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.

Lorenzo

***FOSTER NEEDED***

I'm a shy but very sweet boy!

I'm a big goofy guy and once I warm to you I want to play, have fun and be the center of attention! I love other dogs (not sure about cats yet). I need to work on some good boy/be calm manners, but I know how to fetch and sit and always aim to be a sweet boy. Hikes and walks are a lot of fun, and once I have my daily exercise I like to chill out and snooze on the couch. Looking for someone to pamper me and give me lots of attention. I'd do best in a home with older children, 13 years and older.

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

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 am protective of my family and 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, I can't wait to meet you!

Zeke

I am the perfect tanning buddy. I love to sunbathe!

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.
