Baxter

Jack Russell Terrier
7 years old
Male
15 pounds

Loyal. Courteous. Dependable. These are core values that I feel are getting lost with the dogs in America today. Hi, I am Baxter Russell. I want to win your vote to become your Local District Domicile Dog Representative. As your LDDDR, I will take the fight for the hearts and minds of our community to the streets. I won’t hide in some government crate out of touch with what’s really going on. I will put paws to pavement, shaking hands and licking faces of respectful children 8+. I will politely sniff every dog I meet, and I will make darn sure no cats are allowed to terrorize our community. I have a fire burning inside me, and I want to ignite the torch that will light the way for your family out of the darkness that is petlessness. I have dreams and goals for our neighborhood, and I need your help to bring them to fruition. I hope I can count on your vote. I am Baxter Russell, and I approve this message.

7 years old-15lbs. My adoption fee is $120 and includes neuter, microchip, reduced-cost training class, 1 month pet health insurance, free veterinary exam, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.

Bella

Welsh Corgi + Pit Bull Terrier Mix
3 years old
Female
32 pounds

I got love in my heart, a smile on my face, a bounce in my step, and I am powered by charisma! I would say I got what anybody would be looking for in a dog! Would you adopt me? I would adopt me. I would adopt me hard! I’m just playin’, cuz I love to play! Fetch, tug, chase; whatever your game is I am down to play! Girls just wanna have fun, right?!?! I love kids and love how much energy they have! I get along with other dogs really well and wouldn’t mind a play partner in my new home. My crate training is… how should I put this? Amazing! I can even get along with cats, as long as they like to play play play! So you should probably just come say Hi and see how cute and wonderful I am in real life!

BG

Dalmatian + Pointer Mix
9 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.

Biscotti

Shar Pei + Great Pyrenees + Shepherd Mix
5 years old
Male
60 pounds

This Biscotti wants to go for a ride in your Bugatti! Or Chevy, Toyota, Ford, Hyundai, whatever you got, let’s roll! I am ready to cruise the streets with my new peeps and find adventures around every turn. I like to work hard and play harder, so I am looking for a family that likes to be on the move. I like cuddle time just as much as the next guy, but walking around or hiking some trails is my true element. I have learned to turn down at night in my crate when it‘s bed time, and know to potty outside but other than that I like to feel the breeze on my face and the wind through my fur. I can roll with my dogs so long as they call me boss, but them kitty cats can’t hang. I like kids who don’t mind romping with a dog like me; fragile dispositions who don’t appreciate a good protector might not like my gusto so older kids 12+ would be best. Come pull me off the lot today and you could wake up tomorrow singing “I woke up with a new Biscotti!”

5 years old-60lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes microchip, neuter, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

Boris

Labrador Retriever + Rottweiler + Pit Bull Terrier Mix
5 years old
Male
99 pounds

Trust is the foundation of any healthy relationship. Without trust there can be no effective communication, no mutual respect, and no love. I really want someone to love, and I know that I have to trust someone enough to let them in and love me, but that is my biggest obstacle. I have always been wary of meeting new people. Everyone one always says “But you’re a big guy, you can take care of yourself.” And that is that exact problem: I don’t want to feel like I have to take care of or defend myself. I want to know that I am loved and that my adult-only family is looking out for me. The comfort that trusts provides, I want to wrap up in it like a permanent snuggie. But I know I have to take that first step. I hope to find someone that can look past my faults and see the love I have to share. The other dogs in my playgroup have been supportive, and it has been real nice to hang out and be social. But I need a family who can give me what I truly want. My house training and manners are all in order, and I need someone who has patience and support and can see the value of investment over quick returns. Nothing easy is ever good, and nothing good is ever easy. Am I right? Maybe you can help Boris the bewildered become Boris the brave?

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!♫

Chance

German Shepherd + Akita Mix
8 years old
Male
97 pounds

Gimme one shot and I know I can hit that bull’s-eye on your heart. My name ain’t Cupid, but I reckon I have just as much love to throw around as that chubby baby. I been down a long hard road in this life, but I never let it break my spirit. Sure I can be cantankerous at times, but when you get to be my age you just don’t put up with as much guff as you used to. That is why children around me should be 8+ and respectful of their elders. Same goes for my fellow dogs—they should be respectful as well. In my book, you get what you give and I don’t give cats any love, so I expect the same from them, which is fine by me. My crate training has been going really well and I am pretty excited about having my own little den of solace. I mosey at my own pace and don’t have too much giddyup, so low and slow is how I like to roll. I don’t really have any marathons in me anymore. But I still like to get out and throw the old ball around. If you can see it in your heart to give this old soldier one more tour of duty, I will pledge to you my heart, my love, and my honor.

Coda

Labrador Retriever + Husky Mix
2 1/2 years old
Male
80 pounds

I hear the quiet beginnings of a beautiful symphony about to take over my heart. It is a soft swelling of dreamy bliss, the sound of friendship. I feel the light of love slowly shining brighter and brighter… Can you hear the music? I think that is our song. Oh how I do love to run and play and sing! I have so much happiness in my heart I am about to explode! I have love for all the dogs I meet, sturdy children that want to play all day, and generally everyone I come in contact with. I am not a lover of cats, though. I guess that place in my heart is taken up with the love I have for people and my love of exploring and my great wanderlust! True to my Husky nature, there will be no leaving me out in the backyard all day!I am already housebroken and I loved getting crate trained—I get a snack and a nap? You read my mind! This song in my heart grows louder and more triumphant. I see us dancing on clouds in the happiness of my dreams, and as it comes to a close, we quietly sit in the center of the stage, softly enveloped in forever love.

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!

Dewey

Standard Schnauzer + Bearded Collie Mix
1 1/2 years old
Male
35 pounds

You either Dewey or you don’t, there is no ‘try’. I heard a little green feller say something like that once. I don’t know how he knew my name, but I was sure intrigued by his message. It’s a mantra I have applied to my life, and I am always looking to learn or experience new things! Now don’t worry, I know I may look like an Irish Wolfhound, but I promise this is about as big as I am going to get. But it would be cool to tell your friends you got a Tea-Cup Wolfhound, right?! I like to have fun and play with the other dogs in my play pack. I can be a little sensitive when it comes to overly dominate dogs, but I know you can help me build my confidence! You can help me learn all sorts of things! Except maybe how to get along with cats, that is something I don’t try. But I am getting pretty good at my crate training, and I would love some leash training exercises! And I love love! I can enjoy respectful kids 12+ too. I need help to build my confidence and trust in the world so a quiet, low traffic home would be best for now. You know how the morning sun shows the wonder of a Dewey meadow? I want to be that wonder in your morning, and all other times of the day!

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!

Elvis

Boxer + English Bulldog Mix
6 years old
Male
74 pounds

Well, since my family left me, I’ve found a new place to dwell. It’s down at the end of lonely street at Family Dogs Hotel. I am having lots of fun, since I get along other dogs here, but I get so lonely, baby, I really need a home. A laid back family will do, I’m a pretty chill guy who likes to kick back and relax. Let me tell ya, some belly rubs will really make me shake, rattle, and roll though! I am a gentle but still powerful boy, so a cat-free family with sturdy &respectful children 7+ who know how to love me tender will be best. I already have some great moves: I know basic commands like ‘sit’, ‘down,’ and ‘stay,’ am perfectly crate trained, housebroken, and I walk nicely on leash too…..until I see another strange dog, then I might get a bit worked up. See, I am pretty darn selective of my doggy friends. So if you’re looking for a hunk a hunk of burnin’ love, come check me out.

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 7 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!

Jupiter has a pending adoption

Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog
2 years old
Female
51 pounds

I’m telling you, my friendship is otherworldly. And I’ve got the smarts to rule the universe! Now if only I had the power to find myself a place to call home! It’s no surprise that I am so full of love and so full of fun—after all, I am sure to be the largest ‘planet’ in the solar system…with 2½ times the love of all other canines combined! That’s more than enough love to share with your other dogs, with your sturdy children, and even your cats! And those smarts I was talking about…I’m already crate trained, have a great start on housebreaking, and I ride wonderfully in a spacecraft (aka car). Just don’t expect me to hang out in the back yard all day—I need more adventure and exploration than that! All I want is to be the best canine companion possible ,and with your love, training, guidance, and forever commitment, I do believe we can make it happen. Don’t worry, you don’t have to travel to outer space—just head on down to Family Dogs and ask for Jupiter!

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!

Kobe

Schnauzer + Poodle Mix
12 years old
Male
5 pounds

Gosh, I was trying to come up with one of those witty funny descriptions like the other dogs…how do they do it? I mean, did you read what Fletcher wrote for himself? How the heck am I supposed to compete with that!? I mean, I’m a vegetarian, so I don’t care for Kobe beef…And, I’m a Trailblazers fan, so I’m not real keen on Kobe Bryant …So where are my funny jokes going to come from? I mean, with this fast paced world we live in is it even possible to impress people with simply good looks and a big heart? Sure, I ‘m no spring chicken …but does that mean I’m going to have to sit here lonely for the rest of my life?  I mean, I’m super sweet and loving, loyal, affectionate, great with other dogs, with cats, am crate trained and friendly with children old enough to know how to respect their elders … Now Isn’t that enough?

Krissy

Chihuahua + Dachshund Mix
2 years old
Female
11 pounds

Hey, buddy do you have some time? I am looking for a family that will put their love on the line. A nice soft lap that will hold my behind. Guessin’ that means it’s Chiweenie time! This Chiweenie has suffered a loss. But I will keep fighting for love no matter the cost. I lost my family and was left behind, Guessin’ that means it’s Chiweenie time!

Chiweenie time (I’m a little heartbreaker!)
Chiweenie time (My love is blind!)
Chiweenie time (I’ll enroll in training classes!)
Make me the one you need all the time!

Man, I love rocking like the Reverend Horton Heat, and I want a family with kids 12+ who are polite and sweet. I can be a little uneasy at times, so I need a calm, patient family to help ease my anxieties to strange people and scary situations. I do get along with other dogs great and cats very well! I am learning crate training here at the shelter. I love the sense of security and chill time it affords me. I know I am not perfect, and I have some challenges. But you know the old saying—nothing good comes easy, and nothing easy is ever good. Let’s just say this little girl will knock your socks off if you give me the chance.
It’s Chiweenie time!

Lila

Pit Bull Terrier Mix
1 1/2 years old
Female
54 pounds

Names Lila, but those who love me most call me Lovely Ly. Let’s get one thing straight…I am one happy girl! At 1 ½ years old I am still just a pup, with a real enthusiasm for all things fun. I’ll make a great addition to an active family, you know, one that goes on lots of adventures! I’m game for any outdoor activity- jogging, hiking, skateboarding- you name it! I love to play with the other dogs here at the shelter, almost as much as I like to play with my ball… and I like to play with my ball almost as much as I like to chase the cat…and I like to chase the cats almost as much as I love to hang out with my people. I like to cuddle and snuggle in the bed, curl up next to you after a longs days play and gaze into your eyes…as if to say ‘your my favorite person in the whole wide world’.  I will do well with older sturdy children, am already crate trained and housebroken too. I even know my basic commands, but alas, I am still a bit of a puppy so I will need plenty of guidance and continued training to keep me happy and well behaved- especially when it comes to being around other dogs while I’m on leash (I get a bit defensive, due to a very traumatic incident as a pup. But we can talk more about those sad tales later!) Are you up for an adventure? Looking for more love than you can handle?

Loreta

Greyhound Mix
7 years old
Female
48 pounds

People vie for my attention but I am waiting for the one who will bring me forever love. I don’t want a flash in the pan… I want a long slow sizzle. So I will bide my time till the right family comes along. I will need a home with respectful older kids 12+, but get along great with other dogs, am used to living with dog savvy cats and am already housebroken. I am a very timid lady and don’t want to just open myself up to anyone. I have been hurt before and won’t make that mistake again. So it will take a little while to crack this shell I have built up around me, but I promise you that it will be well worth your time. I am sweet, loving and affectionate. I just don’t want to have my emotions played with. I want to know it’s the right one, because it is forever right? I just ask for a soft hand to help guide me into being a braver, more confident girl. I am willing to learn; if you have the patience teach me ?

Lucy

English Pointer + Pit Bull Terrier Mix
2 years old
Female
72 pounds

If I had a mirror and I looked into it, do you know what I would see?  I would see a glorious, happy girl smiling back at me.  I am a true treasure with a heart of gold and a personality like sunshine.  I have a great big smile that will warm your heart on even the loneliest days.  I am a great playmate to my doggy friends here, but I’ll play too rough for your kitty cats, and I am working real hard on minding my manners and mastering them. I am people focused and eager to please, so continued training with me will be a blast, I’ve already mastered this whole crate training thing. My tail is always waggin’ and I just love to give kisses—I’ll even climb in your lap or hop up and give you hugs if you let me! A home of my own, complete with love, guidance and training is all I need to be the happiest girl in the world! Look in the mirror, now what do you see? The future human who’ll love me!

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!

9 months old
Female

OMG! Can you believe that I get the chance to find my forever home? Neither can I! I mean, after all the ups and downs I’ve been through lately, I could really use a little sunshine on my parade. I really love to pull out all stops, show off all my bells and whistles, and celebrate every chance I get!, Yeah, I’m still a bit of a puppy, and I don’t have the best manners yet. I’m a bit of a tomboy and enjoy a good wrestling match, so I would love to find a family with kids, as long as they enjoy some rough & tumble play. And let me tell ya, I Love playing with cats and other dogs—just so long as they can keep up with me! Sure, I may be a tomboy, but I think with some reward-based training, patience and stability I could become a pretty amazing lady. I am catching on to this crate training thing and think it is nice to have a little place of my own to chill out in after a long day of play. I love to enjoy life, so if you are into running, hiking, and playing in the surf then I’m your girl! Life is too short not to get out and enjoy it!

Muffin

Rottweiler
8 years old
Female
66 pounds

This is a slam poem I wrote. It’s entitled “Do you?”

Do you know the Muffin, man?
Can you see the fabulous charisma she encapsulates, man?
Man’s best friend, but not to eat, we don’t eat our friends
Tail wags and second chances
Do you know the Muffin, man?

Thank you for listening, I hope you liked it. A few of the other dogs and I like to get together a couple nights of week and do some creativity exercises. You know, some improv or interpretive dance. It keeps the mind sharp and helps to pass the time. I get along with other dogs very well and have lived with them before but I don’t always like to share and prefer to have all the lovin’ to myself. I think that respectful kids 6+ would be great in my new home. I am just not a kitty cat or chicken kinda dog (don’t ask). I have also enrolled in a crate training program since coming to the shelter and I do believe that I am now fully certified. I am kind of a country girl a heart so someone that can help guide me with my housebreaking would be awesome! So if you are looking for a sensitive soul, I bid you get to know this Muffin, man.

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?

Black Labrador Retriever + German Shepherd Mix

So I hear you’re looking for a new best friend? Someone who is a real sweet heart…well, I may be just who you’re looking for! I am O-so affectionate and O-so loving. If you’re looking for someone to accompany you on your daily walk or jog, a buddy to tag along on your weekend hikes, or a pal to take to the beach, I’d be more than happy to join since I am O-so playful and enjoy a good time. How about a friend for your other dog? I am O-so lovable and affectionate, I’ll make a wonderful companion for your other dog or respectful older children, but I am not O-so willing to share my home with cats. Some people say I’m O-so quirky; I had a really rough puppy-hood that left me with a slight neurological condition, but don’t worry, aside from a love affair with going after my tail (I’m pretty sure its playing hard to get) you’d never even notice! I’m keeping my crate O-so clean and tidy, such a great start to all the other awesome stuff you can teach me…since I am O-so smart. So how about it… don’t I sound O-so right?

Romina

Pit Bull Terrier + Chesapeake Bay Retriever Mix
2 years old
Female

Come, my child, step into the parlor of Romina! Snuggle baroness and medium to lost love! I have found the spirits of so many who went unloved and helped to guide them toward friendship. But for so long I have helped others that I myself have gone loveless! Today lady Romina says, “No more! I shall have my own happiness for once!” We may sacrifice a cat or two, but it is only to fill the great ether with forever love! Maybe sacrifice is a strong word, but we don’t need any of them around! I do love to play and roughhouse, and I know I can be a little bossy with other dogs, but I say it is because they lack the same vision I behold, so my playmates should be submissive and new introductions should be slow and mellow. I can see a future with us dancing on a sunlit beach, the surf nibbling at our toes, but universal elements must align for vision to come to pass. Can you make this future come true?

This ain’t no pansy-dandy-sing-a-long-kumbaya-in-the-backyard-snuggle-fest. This is a hardcore-in-your-face-take-no-prisoners-let-me-see-your-war-face-full-metal-can-you-smell-what-the-Ryker-is-cooking-no-holds-barred-love-down! Can you feel me, bruh? I know you can’t see me! But can you feel me, bruh? You want love? Well, Ryker gunna give it to ya! I don’t do cats. I don’t do kids under 10 years old. I get along with the other dogs in my play group, but I am a little bit of a wild child, no wimps allowed. I am not trying to be a jerk, I just want to be real with you. I don’t want to waste your time, and I don’t want you to waste mine. So if you are still reading this, then you just got yourself within scoring distance of the end zone. I want to run and hike, swim and skydive; I need someone in my life that can keep pace. Someone to show me the ropes of what I don’t know and give me a leg up on what I should be doing. Six seconds on the clock. No time outs. Do we drive this love home right up the middle and show them what we got!?! Or do we let them steal our thunder and take what is rightfully ours?! Not on my watch!

Toy Poodle

Well, I am past my teenage years, but I can still be a little witchy. I have had a rough life so far, and really I don’t like to talk about it. Let’s just say It has left me with isomer insecurities when meeting new people. So I will need a very calm, patient, and understanding person to work a little ‘magic’ on me. I know I would do best in an adult-only home without a lot of strangers coming and going. If you think you see potential inside of me, please don’t be discouraged if it’s not the fireworks you imagined when we meet. I am still trying to perfect my firework spell. I do hit it off with other dogs well though, and I don’t mind living with cats. Crate training here has been fantastic and it gives me a quiet place to study my grimoire. True love is something that can’t be replicated even with magic, because it is something that exists only in the heart. But together maybe we can conjure up something special?

Spring is here, and the flowers are in bloom! You know what might give you the blue ribbon garden of beauty award this year? A rare and exotic Samantha Rose. This is the City of Roses, right? Well, then there is no better place for me to be! Unless of course in your arms is an option! I want to be the benefactor to all your love and admiration.

Sturdy kids will love to run and bay all day with me. I am partially house trained, and my crate training is getting pretty solid. Plant the seed of love, and watch as your garden blooms, just be sure to include me in your bouquet!

Swizzle

Chihuahua
3 years old
Female

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!

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

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!
