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.

Sheriff

Adoption Pending!

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!

Frankie

Adoption Pending!

Let's go do stuff!

I'm a fun-loving, energetic Catahoula and I really enjoy being around my people but I also like a little space for myself. Like a lot of Catahoulas, I take my time warming up to people, but once we are friends, all I want to do is play and go places with you! My favorite activities are swimming, hiking, dog parks, and tug of war. OH! And I LOVE riding in cars, head out of the window taking in all the sights and smells. I really enjoy chewing on a good bone and puzzle toys and can sleep all through the night in my room. I would like it if someone would get me a crate of my very own to sleep in, too. I know all my basic cues (sit, stay, come, lay down, leave it), I sit at curbs, and walk like a gentleman on my leash! I would prefer being an only dog so I can have your attention to myself. Also, the high energy of kids and too many people can get me riled up, so I would be great in a small household with no kids. I really like my cat brother but he is very calm. If you have a calm cat already, I bet we would get along!

Jasper

Adoption Pending!

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.

I'm is a sweet girl who just had a hard start in life. I love to be close to you and be your shadow. I enjoy going on walks. My foster mom is teaching me how to walk nicely on a leash.

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!

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!

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.

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.

Donut

Adoption Pending!

I can't wait to meet you!

My favorite things are cuddling and having adventures together. My energy level is on the calm side but I still need regular activity and playtime. I love meeting new people who give me treats and I am learning how great it is to make new friends. I'm still practicing my leash manners and basic training, and I'm learning to not put my paws up on everything in hopes of finding food. I love to chew and I'm teething right now so I need a good variety of chews and toys around to help me keep making good choices about what to chew on! I am crate trained and potty trained in familiar environments, and I ride well in the car crate.

Did someone say it's time for a walk?

I'm an energetic girl who loves to be outside. I want to go on so many walks! They are my favorite thing to do. I want to be with my people all the time and can be a little nervous when left alone. I am house trained but I also know how to use puppy pads.

Amari

Adoption Pending!

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!

Joxer

Play, nap, repeat.

I am named after Xena's goofy sidekick from the 90's tv show. There is even a song about me if you google it, and it pretty much sums up my personality! I am silly, snuggly, smart and very handsome. I know my basic obedience cues and a few tricks like paw and roll over. I am crate trained and can happily spend the night in there, or rest safely while you are out of the house. I am housebroken but can always benefit from wearing one of my special diapers when introduced to a brand new house or around a new piece of furniture. I am very easy to exercise. I LOVE my walks! I may pull at first, but I typically relax after I go potty. A 20-30 minute walk and some playtime and I'm set! Although I love to play and explore, I spend most of my time snoozing and love pets and cuddles. I do tend to bark at sounds and people/animals from the window, and storms make me anxious. I am smart and food motivated so there is still room for me to grow! I was diagnosed with IMHA (Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia) when I was about 3 years old, but have medication to keep me healthy.

Will you help me hunt for treats?

Zoboticka aka Zobo

Who wants to snuggle with me?

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. I enjoy playing fetch and I will carry my toys in my mouth around the house, I love them so much! I'm still learning my manners and I do pull a bit on leash, but I'm working on that. I know lots of cues and I'm even good at 'settle' on my bed or mat. I do have an allergy to poultry, so I'd need to avoid anything with poultry in it. I'd do best in a home with no children, no cats and I'd also love to be the only dog so I can get all the attention!
