Amu

American Eskimo
7 years old
Male
29 pounds

No silly! I am not a large flightless bird from Australia; I am a small flightless dog from America! My name is Amu, and I want to get to know you! How did such a wonderful chap like me end up in this current state of affairs, you ask? Well, it is the age-old story of rivalry, heartache, intrigue, and, ultimately, redemption. You see, my previous owners brought a tiny human into our home, and I am not proud of this, but a vicious jealousy took root within me where there had once been only a garden of love. Try as I might, I could not hide my disdain for this tiny being that usurped all the time, love, and attention that had been mine. Thus heartache followed when my family made the decision to keep the child and not me, their loyal companion! Intriguing, no? Now I seek to redeem myself and show that I can be the loving loyal companion I know I can be (sans children under 12). I am house trained, crate trained, walk very well on leash, know all standard commands, can live with cats, and socialize well with other dogs in a public setting. I can be your perfect dog as I had once been for my previous family. What are you waiting for? Get Amu-v on!

7 years old-29lbs. My adoption fee is $140 and includes neuter, microchip, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

Asia

Yellow Labrador Retriever Mix
1 year old
Female
50 pounds

Eastern philosophy states that true understanding can be achieved only through experience. I propose that to have a truly deep understanding of love, the only course of action is experience. You can look through a book and see examples of what love should look like and what circumstances are results of the experience. But citing references makes you more of a Don Quixote than a Don Juan. I want you to fully understand what a trans-species relationship can provide, and, in my opinion, experience is the only way. You will want to witness firsthand the happiness that I can bestow upon a loving family. How children take joy in my presence. How cats and other dogs find acceptance with my being. I develop greater insight through the meditation that I practice in my crate. I hope to impart a deeper understanding and more solid bond than any you have ever experienced. Namaste.

B.G

Dalmatian + Pointer Mix
8 years old
Female
80 pounds

You like girls with beautiful curves, right? A little padding for the petting? I know when I see a Greyhound I’m like “someone get that dog a milk-bone”, you know what I’m saying?!? I got all the filling in all the right places- both inside and out! Good looks and a great big personality to match! I get along well with other dogs like me, but I am not a fan of cats or little dogs… They always be in my business and I be like “listen cha-huahua, I will step on you!”.  And respectful children 10+, I don’t mind them one bit as long as they understand how a Queen like me should be treated. I want to be treated with respect, I want everyone to know that I am the Queen of the castle. Don’t be fooled, I’ve still got some energy to burn and I do like to work on my fitness, so walks around the neighborhood or some easy trail hiking would be good for me. And you best believe that I’m not only takin’ pride in myself but in my house too…so you know I keep my place clean. I also keep my place safe, real safe, my family too; call me Queen Protector. Once you seen all the rest, come meet the best and get some of this Big Girl love.

Baby Boy

Chihuahua + Basenji Mix
1 year old
Male
17 pounds

There seems to have been a mix-up. I was supposed to be delivered to a loving forever family of my very own. I guess the stork drank one too many cups of liquid courage, cuz for whatever reason I have found myself here instead. I need a loving family to scoop me up and take me on that happy love ride. I will be on my best behavior, I promise! I get along with cats, dogs, and respectful children of all ages. I have had more good days than bad with my crate training program. I am food motivated and ready to learn all the things you want to show me! Mom? Dad? It’s me, your long lost Baby Boy! Let’s get this family reunited!

Bear Bear

German Shepherd Mix
8 weeks old
Male
8 pounds

I am pretty stinkin’ cute, there’s no question about that! But I wonder what else people would say about me? I bet they’d say I’m a bit shy at first, but once I get comfortable I’m a great cuddle bug. And that I like to  explore on my own terms and would love to have another doggie to play and cuddle with. They’d probably say that I am working hard on my potty training but I’m still just a baby, so be patient. Most important of all, they’d say that I am a wonderful boy looking for a wonderful home with a family committed to giving me all the love, training and guidance I need…

Buddy Boy

Jack Russell Terrier + Lhasa Apso Mix
3 years old
Male
20 pounds

♫My Buddy, my Buddy, my Buddy, my Buddy and me!♫ That will be the song in your heart when you find me in your life! I mean just look at this face! This is the kinda mug that makes Buddy material….And Buddy Boy material makes a suit of love that is prêt-à-porter! Buddy Boy also make a great little protector…my small stature won’t keep me from acting like the toughest guy in town when strangers intrude. Like any good Buddy should I love going for walks, playing fetch, going for car rides or playing tug-of-war. Or we can just canoodle on the couch and watch seasons of Cake Boss on Netflix. I like cake, and other people named Buddy making a difference in the world through cake! I know sit and down, I am house trained, and my crate training is coming along great. I don’t like being over handled or roughed around, so only kids 12+ can be my buddies. I will be the best Buddy Boy that you ever did know! ♫Your Buddy, your Buddy, your Buddy, your Buddy and You!♫

3 years old-20lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes microchip, neuter, reduced cost training class, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & Treat packet.

Daisy

Carolina Dog Mix
3 years old
Female
49 pounds

He loves me…he loves me not…he loves me…oh, I hope that you will love me! I want to be loved so much I can taste it! It is sweet and sugary like a doggie gingersnap! But I want forever flavor, not just a sample. I had a really nice home for the past year, but sometimes things happen in life that turn your world upside down. I feel like Alice when she fell down the rabbit hole—I know there is a Wonderland waiting for me. I love to play! I know all sorts of tricks! I love to go for runs! I am very active and want to find a forever home that can keep up the pace! I am house trained, crate trained, love to play with other dogs (but don’t like to share my ball), can cuddle like nobody’s business, and am very loyal to those I love. I am wary of meeting New people and can be very protective of My people, so I will need  an adult-only, low traffic home where I will be allowed plenty of time to warm up to strangers, but when the feeling is right we will be bubbling with love in no time. The one thing I can’t seem to do is get along with cats, but who wants to be friends with those snooty butts anyway? They say if you love a flower to let it be, for if you pick it, it will cease to exist. But if you pick this flower then we will exist together!

Deeogie

Pointer Mix
3 years old
Male
53 pounds

Golly gee! Was someone looking for me? Deeogie! Here I am, let the fun times begin! I can be a little skeptical when I first meet a new person. But once I am familiar and comfortable, it is all systems go! I just want to be the cool guy that everyone wants to hang out with. Maybe you could help build my confidence, give me some stability, and then show me off to your friends! Children love me, and I love kids! I get along great with other dogs, and I can even extend an olive branch for the house cat to bat around. Hey, I’m even housebroken already! Let me be the dog of your dreams because I think you are the family I have seen in mine.

Dolly

Shar Pei
8 years old
Female
48 pounds

I’d love to be that little Dolly that you cherish, the one that will always be by your side. Truthfulness and loyalty are the qualities I possess. If we are being open and honest with each other, and I’d like us to be, then I will tell you I can be a bit touchy when it comes to ‘grabby hands.’ I don’t like surprises or being jostled around, so respectful children 10+ are more my speed, which I prefer to keep slow and steady. I am, shall we say, a refined female. I have been around the doll house a time or two and understand how a lady should be treated.  I am looking for that pure loving connection all canines seek. I love to go for car rides or take nice leisurely strolls. I am house trained and crate trained, I get along with other dogs very well and am open to the idea of living with cats. I am not immune to the trials of age, and do need to take a pill each day to keep my leaky bladder staying dry…yep, happens to the best of us. You might not be able to play dress up with me or push me in a stroller, but there are plenty of Dolly activities we can discover!

Flossie

German Shepherd + Doberman Pinscher Mix
1 year old
Female
36 pounds

Is that a little something I see there, stuck between your teeth? A big chunk of loneliness? I think I may be just what you need! I am pretty sure I can get down deep into those hard-to-reach places and clear out all the loneliness you’re feeling! A dream companion for any GSD lover. And if you’re fond of us Shepherds, then you already know all about how smart we are, how eager to please and loyal we can be, how sometimes we can be a little anxious—ya, you know all about it! I can also tell you that I get along well with other dogs and gentle children, and I did great meeting the shelter cats—I bet I could even live with your dog-savvy kitty! I also keep my crate nice and clean, no fluoride rinse needed! They say you’re supposed to floss every day; it’s tough, I know, lots of us forget. But if you haven’t got ideal dental hygiene, you can at least keep your heart and soul healthy with just a little Flossie.

Foxy Floyd

Chow Chow + Labrador Retriever Mix
6 years old
Male
52 pounds

I am Foxy Floyd Flanagan. You might remember me from my lucrative career in PCW (that’s Pro Canine Wrestling). I am retired now, but that doesn’t mean I can’t still drop a flying elbow from the top turnbuckle onto your heart. Sometimes I miss climbing into the squared circle and receiving the standing ovations from the crowd night after night as I stood victorious over my opponent. I would now like to offer my services as your personal trainer. Under my tutelage I will transform your weak excuse for a human body into a lean, mean loving machine. Heck kid, stick with me and you might even get a shot at the title belt. Some conditions of this business proposal are as follows:
-Only those over the age of 8 may participate in my training course.
-Other dogs may be permitted to attend, but they need to know who is the teacher and who is the pupil.
-No cats. This isn’t that watered down FEW (that’s Feline Excitement Wrestling). I mean, come on, if you have to tell people you are exciting, guess what, you are anything but.
My rider includes but is not limited to: 1 belly rub a day, treats for being a “good boy” or any requests outside my standard operating procedures, monthly rawhide or chew toy per diem, and my own office. A crate or something of that nature will suffice. It’s not going to be easy, kid, and we got a lot of work ahead. But I see potential in you, and I’ll eat a turnbuckle pad if I can’t make you a star. Now let’s get to work!

6 years old-52lbs. My adoption fee is $160 and includes neuter, microchip, 1 month pet health insurance, reduced-cost training class, free vet exam, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.

Male

I am pretty stinkin’ cute, there’s no question about that! But I wonder what else people would say about me? I bet they’d say I’m quiet and smart. They’d call me Mr. Adventure, since I always ready to go explore and a pretty rough player. They’d also say I get along great with all types of dogs, people and kids. Most important of all, they’d say that I am a wonderful boy looking for a wonderful home with a family committed to giving me all the love, training and guidance I need…

Howie

Chesapeake Bay Retriever Mix
2 years old
Male
61 pounds

Howie here—what’s the haps? Howie you doing? I’m just hangin’ here at the shelter waiting for my perfect forever home. I’m a patient guy, playful yet shy, and over-the-top sweet with those I trust. I really just need a patient person to raise me right, give me lots of love, lots of guidance, and lots of training. I have loads of potential but am lacking stability…sometimes it feels like I don’t know which way is up! I get anxious easily and sometimes I act out if feeling threatened. So, a very patient family with no cats and only the most respectful children 10+ will be best for me. I was a bit shy around other dogs initially, but I am learning how to play and am trying my best to learn how to share my toys with them—let me tell ya, the more socialization and playtime I get, the funner it becomes! The more I learn, the more guidance I receive, the more places I go, the more confident I will be! I’ve already got my crate training and housetraining nailed. So Howie’s about you hurry in and say howdy to Howie!

Katie

Plotthound + Pit Bull Terrier Mix
1 year old
Female
53 pounds

Do you remember that Ace of Base song, “All That She Wants Is Another Katie”? Well, here I am! All you need is me, don’t worry about them other Katies. I need your love, attention, and support to draw me from this mire I have found myself entrenched in. I am a bit shy, so although I love to stretch my legs and have a good time I would prefer a calm, patient, and guiding hand to help boost my confidence and provide me with the stability and socialization I need. My housebreaking has been going really well, so I am proud of that! I also do really well in my crate at night, but I much prefer to use hang out loose in the house. I get along with great with cats and I am very adept at making dog friends but a home with older children 10+ will be best, since I do tend to become overprotective of the ones I love. I don’t know about your previous Katie experiences, but if all you want is another Katie, I am here for the taking!

Martin

German Shepherd
8 years old
Male
60 pounds

Who wants to race?! Let me tell ya, when I get the Martin Mobile cruisin’ there is no stopping me! Your heart will go from zero to sixty in seven seconds flat. A hit and run may have left my hind end paralyzed, but I am not helpless. I am not hopeless. I have a love that burns like a turbo engine! I find camaraderie in people of all ages and dogs of all kinds; I’ll even roll with cats. Sure, I am aware of the challenges that my physical state brings, but the emotional rewards are undeniable. I have risen above all these challenges and seek a family that has the strength to stand beside me. Come on, I’ll even give you a head start!

Max

Rottweiler + Labrador Retriever + Chow Chow Mix
3 years old
Male
76 pounds

Are you ready to take your love to the limit? Are you looking to go extreme with your feelings? You want to get hardcore with your emotions? Then you need to take all those feels to the Max! I am a rip-roaring pooch that needs love like some people need air! Big air! Like X-games on the moon air! I don’t think that is a scientifically accurate description, but you get my drift. I am a big boy with a big heart, and I need someone who isn’t afraid to follow their heart. I can be sensitive and lack confidence in some situations, so I need an adult-only family that can recognize my cues and respond properly. I get along with other dogs in my play pack fine, but I do have some leash reactivity issues that need to be managed. I am house trained, and my crate training has been going very well. I am very wary of cats, and they make me a little anxious, but I could live with one that was respectful. Take your love to the Max and get extreme with your canine dreams!

Hey daddy-o! What do you know? Are you familiar with the sound of love? Have you felt comfort in the form of an extended hug? Free form. Like jazz on a hot and windy night in the South. There is a storm a-brewing, but it will wash away heartache and be so sooo soothing. My love for you will be like hot glue from a craft gun. I will be stuck on you and you on me and then there will be We. Wheeeeee! Like pinwheels in a wind tunnel round and round our love shall go and where it stops we will never know. Hey there! Kitty, kitty, oh so pretty would you want to play with me? Cat chase mouse and I chase cat but with no fear, only for fun. Hey, little child! Oh so mild and 8 years alive can you love me? Let me thrive? Red rover red rover can you please come over to play? Till it is late in the day, then I must bid you adieu. To bed I go in my crate for it is late, and slumber awaits. As I wait.

Mister

Shar Pei
6 years old
Male

Hello friend, I’m Mister. Some call me Mr. Sweet… Some call me Mr. Gentle… Some call me Mr. Easy-Going… I do have some energy, but not too much, and you can even call me Mr. Manners since I am housebroken and crate trained already! Sometime I even go by Mr. Friend, since I am willing to make friends with other dogs, older children, and even the occasional cat. You could call me Mr. Stubborn from time to time, you Shar Pei peeps know what I’m talking ‘bout! So how about you just call me Mr. Your New Dog?

Mongs

Rat Terrier
5 years old
Female
14 pounds

Have you ever wanted a whole lotta love in the smallest possible package? Well, maybe I can extend my services to you. You see I have a whole lot of loving in my little bones and want to share it with someone truly special. Someone who can appreciate that big things come from small packages. I will fill your heart and your lap with all the doggy goodness you could possibly stand! I am learning all about crate training and it is going fantastic, plus I am already housebroken! I enjoy hanging out and cuddling with other dogs and even like attention from older children, so long as they are very gentle! I wouldn’t even mind living with cats if you are bi-furious. My momma once told me, “Mongs, there are many different kinds of people in the world, and no one has all the answers. But the people that tell you they have all the answers are the ones that you need not listen to.” My momma was a wise lady. I don’t have all the answers on how to make life better, or the true meaning of happiness. But I have some pretty good ideas on how to share my love and brighten up a lonely home.

Mya

Chihuahua + Miniature Pinscher Mix
3 years old
Female
14 pounds

I know, I know, once you see my adorable face and soft loving eyes you will be transfixed like a sailor to a siren. But hark my lovelorn admirer; I am cautious to just hand over my heart. I need a family that will understand me fully; my ambitions, my dreams, my desires. Can you dream a little dream with me? Will you walk with me hand and paw, build me up, give me the life I have so longed for? A life of stability and security. A life of love and understanding. I can be reluctant at times, I know. But that doesn’t mean my love diminishes. My love for other dogs is indiscriminate, the heart wants what the heart wants, and the brain has nothing but conjecture. My love for children is solely placed on those of the 10+ category. My love for my crate has its good days and bad, but even with my reluctance to enter, once I am curled up and and comfy inside it brings me much comfort and security. My love for other creatures such as dogs is joyful and robust! But cats, no thank you!  With time I feel we can foster a love and understanding that not many have the joy to experience. Will you dream with me?

Aw, shucks, how can I be Rusty? I’m just a pup! I am about as new as you can get, hot off the press! I don’t have time to sit still and rust with everything I got going on! But I sure wouldn’t mind sticking to you! You can work out my puppy quirks and ready me for a doggone good life! I am attentive and respond to positive-reinforcement training very well. You could say I am a people pleaser and cuddle bug extraordinaire! I love gentle kids, I get along with cats very well, and I love being around other dogs.

Sir Charles

Rottweiler Mix
5 years old
Male
85 pounds

I may look like I ‘go hard in the paint’ like Sir Charles Barkley, but I am really more of the thoughtful, regal demeanor of Charles, Prince of Wales. I just love people and the attention that they can shower upon me! I like to be the center of attention and get all the loving I can. I am a big hunk of cuddle bear, and you need to break yourself off a piece! I like a more laid-back, quiet environment over the hustle and bustle. I can hang with sturdy yet calm and respectful kids, I don’t mind cats, and other dogs are just fine by me. I subscribe to the “live and let live” motto of life. I have adapted very well to my crate training and can see it as a useful tool to have in my future. I may not be a regal beagle, but I can be the lord of your dogtown!

Swizzle

Chihuahua
3 years old
Female
8 pounds

Hey y’all! This is the S to the Wizzle, your grandmaster Swizzle! I am kicking the funky cold medina and heating up the heartbeats with my signature snuggle style. When I was just a wee-izzle, my momma told me that I was destined for greatness. Little did she know that meant being the greatest dog you ever met in your life! I am a cuddle master by trade, with a double major in awesome and excellence. Like Rod Roddy used to say: “All this can be yours if the price is right.” Now I know you’re saying, “Here, Swizzle! Take my wallet, watch, keys to my car, deed to my house!” And I’ll be like, “No, child. You can’t purchase this piece of heaven materialistically. This is something that can only be bought with cold, hard, love, ya dig, brother?” So fork up them feels and you got yourself a deal! Respectful kiddos 8+ that know how to handle a sensitive girl can roll with me. I get along with other dogs like a boss. Kitty cats don’t stress me none. I am a wizard of learning, and got my crate training secured like the national reserve. Don’t settle for less when you deserve the best—say Swizzle and watch all your dreams come Trizzle!

8 weeks old
Female

I am pretty stinkin’ cute, there’s no question about that! But I wonder what else people would say about me? I bet they’d say I love to play, but not too rough. And that I also like to cuddle a lot, but if brothers are playing it’s hard not to want to go play too!  They’d probably say that my potty training is going great so far and that I love to hang out with people, dogs and kids.  Most important of all, they’d say that I am a wonderful girl looking for a wonderful home with a family committed to giving me all the love, training and guidance I need…

It’s amazing how a little love, care, and support can make a difference in someone’s life. I came here three months ago a two-time loser on my last chance of redemption. I was sick physically, emotionally, and spiritually. My gruff outside appearance and grouchy disposition did not dissuade the staff here from giving me the treatment I so badly needed: care, love, consideration, and most of all, time. I stand today before you a completely different dog than I was three months ago. I am ready to take my next step into the arms of a loving family that will show me all the joy that comes with true companionship. I can’t change my past and how sensitive it has made me, so an adults-only home is required for me, but I will not let my past define my future. A seed of love and tolerance has been planted within me and every day it grows…I am even willing to sow it with other dogs or cats. I have taken to this whole crate training thing and use the down time to think about my future and who exactly I want to be. And I want to be the dog that someone is proud to call theirs. I know there is a family out there waiting to love me with everything they got, and I am ready to return that love tenfold.

Walker

Yellow Labrador Retriever Mix
8 years old
Male

All right, keep stride with me, I got places to go and people to love. Let’s go, we’re walking, we’re talking…OK, I’ll start. My name is Walker and I am 8 years old. People have described me as uneasy, but a good boy. I need some stability in my life; I think that would help quell a lot of my stress, you know. I would also be a lot more receptive to positive-reinforcement training. I have had some negative experiences in the past, but I don’t like to talk about it. Forward and ever up! I get along with other dogs, but if you got cats they better run when they see me coming! I make no apologies; I just can’t stand those critters. Dog-savvy kids 10+ will be best for me because I take a little time to trust and grabby hands are no match for me. As with my crate training, I have that down. House manners, too; got those covered. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty more I want to learn, so I got the time to dedicate to learning all you want to teach me if you are game! Sound like a pretty good deal? Then come on and walk with me!

Wanda

Pit Bull Terrier + American Bulldog Mix
8 years old
Female

You’ve heard of A Fish Called Wanda, right? Well, I am a dog called Wanda! I am not after your jewels, though—I just want to steal your heart. I was granted a second chance at life, and I don’t want to squander one second of it. I have been sitting here the last couple of days dreaming of all the love and kisses I am going to give to the happy family that takes me home. I will never be able to repay them for giving me this second chance, but to try, I will cuddle them forever. Sturdy kids would be wonderful to love on. I also do very well with other dogs. I do have a strong desire to chase cats and smaller critters, though, so no little friends for me. I am just a big ol’ girl with a big ol’ heart, and I want to put it to the best possible use. My crate training has been going very well, and with a regular schedule and consistency, I will conquer that house training thing in my new home, too! I am planning the heist of the century—I will steal one family’s love, but the trick is to make them hand it over willingly. So that’s when I bring out the big guns and schmooze them over with my incredible personality. Easy peasy.

You got a friend in me! I will be there like a silent observer, watching you grow and mature before my very eyes. Just tell me you will never grow out of your love and commitment to me! I will have no love or commitment for cats, though, and I just want to be upfront about that. They are almost as bad as Zurg. My heart is only for you. And respectful children. My heart is only for you and your respectful children. Well, and other dogs, but that’s it! My heart is only for you, your respectful children, and other dogs. I have had a wonderful set of nights dreaming away in my crate about how happy I can make my new family. Of all the time we’ll spend together, cuz I do like to be with my people whenever possible; I’m no ‘leave me in the backyard and forget about me’ type of guy. I’m a ‘let’s go on a adventure together and then snuggle up on the couch’ kind of guy. I am tired of playing make-believe though, I want that real honest forever love! We can write our very own Dog Story! But instead of getting lost and found, you can just come find me and love me. I’ll be here.
