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.
Scarlett is a young, silly, affectionate Boxer mix who has been living in a kennel for far too long. She is a favorite among staff, students and volunteers alike! While she does need some time to warm up to new people, once you are her friend she will be your buddy for life.
Age: 4 years
Scarlett loves to stick close to her humans, and doesn't like to be left alone for long periods. She would be a great companion for someone who works from home, or is retired. She is a strong girl but our students and volunteers have worked hard to teach her her manners. She walks lovely on leash and would be a great hiking buddy! She sometimes reacts to other dogs or humans when out walking, but is easily redirected with simple commands.
Scarlett is working on learning how to behave around other dogs, and is making great progress! Her foster or forever home should NOT have cats, and if other dogs are present they would need to be separated indefinitely. This means a patient person who can make slow, short, structured introductions over a period of time, or one with no other dogs.
While she has played nicely with appropriate children, Scarlett can become overly excited. Because she forgets what a big girl she is at times, a home with no children would be best for her.
I love to chase a ball (sometimes I'll even bring it back to you!) or chew on a squeaky toy. Kongs and other durable bones are great, too.
I'm a total sweetheart who wants to find someone who will love me as much as I love them. My perfect family will be patient with me as I adjust to life in a home. One who will take me on car rides (I love riding in the car!) and on hikes. Someone who can be with me a lot and who will continue my training to help me be confident and well mannered as I learn to trust that they are mine forever.
