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.

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.
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier
Age: 4 years
I am currently working on being comfortable with eye contact with other dogs, this is still a tough one for me. I get anxious when other dogs bark. I am slowly learning that it's okay for other dogs to bark. I am able to walk past people on walks without issue, but get excited when I see children. I haven't really hung out with children, but I think they are exciting. I have a foster sister who is a cat and I really like her, sometimes we snuggle and once in a while she'll even play with me, but I never chase her. I have attended over night camp at Lucky Dog resort and my report cards were very good! I get to hang out with the adults and slightly older dogs rather than those my age or younger because they were a little calmer for me to relax and play with. I am crate trained and like to go into it as my 'safe place.'
Yes, I currently live with one cat who is 16 years old and I am very gentle with her. While I have not had a dog sibling, I believe with the right dog who is generally calm, that I would do okay. However I would need slow introductions and careful monitoring until we all know I feel safe with them.
For the past three years I have lived with teenage boys (13 years old and up.) I get excited by children, however due to my strength and excitedness, I would not recommend a home with children under 12 years old for me.
I love chewing antlers, treat filled kongs, treat filled puzzle toys, stuffies, and playing tug of war. I am not a fan of playing fetch and will instead play keep away.
I'd need a patient home and one that will give me lots of reassurance. A family that is home most of the time would be best. Daily walks are a must and a home with a yard and a 6 ft. fence would be ideal. I love laying in front of the fireplace on cold days so if the home has one that would be awesome! I believe having a canine sibling would be good for me if the other dog is older, and relatively calm with a very carefully planned integration and introduction. The home should be calm without a lot of loud noise and drama as I am very sensitive to emotions and moods. I will need toys and activities to keep my busy mind active, but be prepared for stuffy massacres as I love to get fluff everywhere! Ideally I would like to come and go into almost any room in the home and be welcome, and I love to hang out on people's beds. I do take medication so my new owners would need to be comfortable with giving it to me. A home with older children, 12 years old and up, would be best.
