Available Pets - Have a Nice Dog

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.

Cirrus

I'd love to be your exercise buddy and then chill and watch Netlflix!

I am an energetic boy who loves to play! I'm curious and eager to please & am very happy and loving. I am also very silly! I would do best in a home with no cats. I am doing much better with the dog in my foster home after many slow introductions and lots of patience.

Henri

I will cuddle with you all day long!

I absolutely LOVE cuddling with my family. It's so great to get love and attention! My favorite is getting belly rubs in the morning. I'm a sweet boy and I really love my humans, but I do need time to warm up. My foster family has kept me on a consistent routine, which has helped me adapt to their home. I get anxious easily and I'll need help and some management with my anxiety. Snuggles and hugs from my foster mom help a lot. I am a really quick learner and have been working on sit, stay, and lie down. I listen really well when a treat is waiting for me. I'm a good boy who needs support and love to calm me down when I'm nervous. I'd do best in a home as an only dog and no small children, please.

Give me treats!!!

I'm a sweet, curious girl and a little on the shy side. I need to build my confidence and would need lots of socialization. I am VERY food motivated so training will be fun for me. I'd probably do best in a home with older kids. I'd also excel at Nosework which would be great for confidence building.

I love belly rubs!!!!

I'm a gentle, sweet girl who loves to play!!! I love treats and would do well with training because I have a great attention span for learning new things. I think toys are okay but I seem to like people more. I might do best in a home without little children because certain movements and noise can scare me.

I'm a confdent boy!!

I'm an independent boy!  I love treats but am still learning to take them gently. I'd benefit from hand feeding and a good amount of training for bonding with my human. A home with an adult confident, female dog might really help me to learn. I love toys!

Bindi

Adoption Pending!

Can I come hike with you?

I'm a sweet, high energy girl! I like to be outside and play. I really enjoy hiking and I stay close to my human when we are out and about. I love water and will even get into the water for a little swim. Sometimes, I'm a bit shy when meeting new people but I warm up quickly. Even though I have lots of energy, I also like to relax and love to lay at my human's feet.

Want a BFF? I'm your girl!

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!

Tina

PAW-sitively Adorable!

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. **Exciting news! The Karges-Weldon Group has teamed up with ABRT to sponsor the adoption of our awesome foster dog, Tina!This smart and cuddly girl is looking for her forever family.  To help make that a reality, the Karges-Weldon Group is generously covering a majority of her adoption fee for the family that is lucky enough to call her their own.  Be sure to watch Tina's adoption video to learn more about her!https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u...
