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.

Romeo

FOSTER HOME NEEDED!!

Romeo where for art thou Romeo Romeo

Good day my name is Romeo, I am a young, strong, sturdy man looking for for love in all the wrong kingdoms.  At 13 months my puppy brain has not quite caught up with my adult body, I've just started Neo 1 classes to help me learn some manners and basic obedience. I'm a puppy that loves to run and play hard, sometimes I don't realize my own strength, so my perfect forever family would take me out for long walks and keep me in training.  I really don't mind other dogs, but we should meet first to make sure it's a good fit.  Little ones really aren't for me, I like to knock them over while we play and they don't like that too much.  Teens wouldn't be bad they have lots of energy like me and they can handle my size.  I am an absolute joy to be with and I exude excitement when I play. Do you have what it takes to keep up with me and show me boundaries?  Call and set up a time to meet me!  I promise you'll fall in love! .

Rodger

FOSTER HOME NEEDED!

Rodger! Over and Out!

Good day!  My name is Roger, which suits me perfectly because I LOVE to train!  I'm a pretty young guy at just 5 and after losing everything in the Black Forest fires, including my humans, I'm just excited to find my new forever home.  Are you up for adventure?  Do you enjoy training?  I am and I do!  When I start working it's hard to distract me, I will give all of my attention to you!  I enjoy other dogs, but I don't enjoy sharing treats, bones,  or my lunch.  I prefer a quiet, secluded  area for these moments, where I can truly enjoy and appreciate the effort that was put into creating delectable bites for me.  My forever home really shouldn't have small humans because they don't understand that I don't like this and the way I ask for you to go away isn't very nice. Do you think your home could be perfect for me?  When I sit, it's with military precision, I would love to meet someone that enjoys the structure as much as I do!  If you think we might be a good match, don't hesitate call and make an appointment for us to meet!  Just remember leave the treats at home! .

Dusty

FOSTER HOME NEEDED!!

Looking for some good ole couch loving!

Hello my name is Dusty.  No that's not a reference to my age!  Though I am a little long in the tooth and could use a good set of glasses, I have a lot of love left to give.  I'm looking for a forever retirement home where we can lounge on the couch.  You can read a good book and enjoy a glass of wine and I'll keep your feet warm, no need for a blanket!  In my dream home I would be an only dog, it's not that I don't like other dogs, but with my eyes being what they are, they scare me and make me jumpy.  If you enjoy slow short walks around the block when it's light and warm outside and snuggles on the couch when it's dark and cold then I'm the right guy for you!  Call and set up a time to come meet me if you think you have the perfect sanctuary.  It takes me very little time to warm up to you, once I know that you treat me kindly I'm open to being your friend for life.

Nola

I NEED A BEST BUDDY!!

Nola is a very sweet, calm dog.  She loves to be around people. Very sociable. She is a very good listener, follows directions, very obedient.  Nola is great around people, loves everyone.  I've never seen her not like anyone.  We've had Nola for 7 months.  I don't have any other pets so I'm not sure how she would interact with other pets.  In my opinion, I think Nola would fit best in a home with her being the only pet.  I have a 14 year old and a 17 year old, Nola is wonderful with them.  I haven't seen her with small children but I think she would be fine.  Nola's favorite toy is a tennis ball.  She'll play fetch for hours!  I cannot say enough about how clean she is.  She has never once had a accident in the house.  She sleeps all night without having to go to the bathroom.  Nola's forever home should be with someone that can give her attention and lots of love.  She would do best at a house with a back yard that has a tall fence.  She loves to be outside but she's also a great house dog, she loves to hang out and be with people.  She's a great buddy and will make that perfect someone for her very, very happy!

Aurora

Adoption Pending!

BFG - Big Friendly Giant

I love human companionship more than I can say.  I relax as soon as someone gives me affection and attention. I will offer you my paws to stroke, my belly to rub, or any kind of cuddling you can give me.  I might have a slight Houdini quality and can get out of some places more than people might believe.

Want a BFF? I'm your girl!

I'm nervous around new people and would do best with someone patient. I love to hang around with the people I know. If my foster parents are sitting, I want to sit nearby. If they're walking, I want to go walking too. If they're being silly with me, then I'm all about that! My happy place is with my people, and as long as they're around, it's all good!

Goober

My name says it ALL!

I'm a conflicted, ACTIVE, little guy that has a tendency to bark first and make friends later. Once I get to know you, I love to snuggle and get scratches, and just want to be with my humans as much as possible…even if that means I'm constantly under foot! I get along well with other dogs and like to run and play with them, however, I don't like to share my stuff with some dogs and will even try to take “their&&&&” stuff (this has gotten me into a few minor scraps with some of my foster siblings). I lived with children in my previous home, and reportedly was just fine with them.
