Artemus

Australian Shepherd + Catahoula Leopard Dog Mix
18 months old
Male
55 pounds

Hail good family! I am Artemus, servant of our lady Artemis, Goddess of the Hunt, the Forests and Hills, the Moon, and Archery. Pretty talented lady, huh? My mistress has guided me and crafted my skill, and now I feel I am ready to embark on my own hunt!  I seek not a trophy of fur or horn, but the wild and elusive love that all dogs seek in their lives. I have been granted a greater set of skills than most of my canine compatriots. The patience to handle children, an affinity for other dogs, and the ability to coexist with felines that may also share my domicile. I have been crate training and perfecting my skills of self-sufficiency, so that when we are apart you know I will be safe and secure. Hark! The trumpets of the hunt bellow their call! Your heart is my target, and my arrow flies swift and sure.

18 months old-55lbs. My adoption fee is $200 and includes microchip, neuter, reduced-cost training class, 1 month pet health insurance, free veterinary exam, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.

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.

8 years old- 80lbs. My adoption fee is $100 and includes spay, microchip, reduced cost Training Class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & Treat packet.

Benny

Australian Cattle Dog + Labrador Retriever + Pit Bull Terrier Mix
1 year old
Male
46 pounds

I want to be your right-hand dog! Whenever you call me, I’ll be right there! You need a wet nose? I got you covered! You need big wet kisses? I am on it! Feeling a little blue? Wrap your arms around me and hug it out! All your dog necessities will be covered, just give me your time and love in return. I may need you to show me how to be on my best behavior since I am young and haven’t received all the training I wish I could have. I am more than willing to learn! Show me where you want me and what I need to do, and I’ll be on it! Well, except for playing with cats, I just can’t do that, but admitting I have a problem is the first step, isn’t it? I do love gentle kids of all ages, and I wouldn’t mind running around the park with them. I get along really well with the dogs in my playgroup and most everyone I meet. My crate training is pretty fantastic, and I know I can master whatever you want to teach me! Let’s get to the lovin’ and learnin’!!!

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.

Cookie

Pit Bull Terrier
2 years old
Female
45 pounds

Get your hand outta the cookie jar, man! You keep eating that junk food, and it’ll catch up…a love handle here…a pot belly there…before you know it you have to buy a new wardrobe! But do not fear, I have a solution…a gluten-free, fat-free, sugar-free alternative…ME! Cookie! Instead of eating those cookies, you can just hang with me, and we can go jogging, go hiking, or spend the weekend camping! I’d love an active family to take me fun places, followed by lots and lots of snuggle time! I enjoy sharing my sweetness with kids and other dogs, and I’d love to have a human who is willing to train the heck outta me…I’m smart and I like to please…So jump off the junk food train and get on board with Cookie!

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!

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 + 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!

Fozzie

Dachshund + Shar Pei Mix
2 years old
Male
18 pounds

Hello, folks! I am Fozzie Dog! Comedian, lover, dog extraordinaire! You may be familiar with my cousin, Fozzie Bear, and his Muppets show. I’ve looked up to him my whole life, and he has taught me everything I know. I know what you’re thinking, “How does a bear have a dog for a cousin?” We’ll just say my uncle was a brave pup! Wocka wocka! But seriously, folks, I would like to thank you for your interest in my act, and I just want you to know that I can do this gig 7 days a week! You can book me for your living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, I even have a little bit worked out with rubber duckies I can do in the shower for you if you like! Speaking of ducks, a chicken walks into a bar and says to the bartender, “What? You surprised to see me here?” and the bartender says, “Why? Did the cow sell the place?” Wocka wocka! I know that was a pretty fowl joke, huh? Wocka wocka! I am a barrel of laughs for your enjoyment, I can do children’s parties as long as they are respectful, I can play dog soirees, I do private shows in my crate by myself, but the only audience I will not entertain is cats. I played the cat circuit and could never get a laugh out of those sourpusses! Let me be your personal entertainer, and I will keep you in stitches, or maybe we could go see that new pirate movie! As long as you know it’s rated Arrrrrrrrrgh! Wocka wocka!

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!

Izzy

Yorkshire Terrier
6 years old
Female
10 pounds

You’ve heard of Izzy’s All-You-Can-Eat Pizza Buffet, right? Well, that gave me the idea to open my own Izzy’s All-You-Can-Love Buffet! That’s right! One special family will get to gorge themselves into a love coma with all I have to offer! I’m the sweetest little lap warmer you will ever know. I am delicate and reserved, so a home with gentle children 6+ would be best for me. I would love to live with cats or other gentle dogs, but if you wanted to just give me all your attention, I sure wouldn’t mind… since I must say, big dogs do scare me a little bit! I wile away the nights in my crate perfecting my love recipe, and I think I have finally cracked the code to the best thing you will ever feel! My love is so scrumptious you might stuff yourself silly, but no one here will judge you. The world needs more love gluttons, and I have enough to dish out!

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!

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.

18 months old
Male

Are you looking for one-two power punch of love right to your midsection? Well, I wanna rock‘n’sock you with a love fist so hard you will see stars! I take on all comers! Gentle, respectful kids, other dogs, cats; I don’t back down from a challenge, and I will love anyone who tries to stand up to me. I have been training hard my whole life for this. I eat, sleep, and breathe love. In my crate at night before I go to sleep I do four sets of love reps; I am always training. I am a diamond-hardened drill and will crack the hardest of hearts. After I get the big win, I plan on taking it easy for a bit. Playing games, maybe doing some hiking. But my love training never stops, and I will always be ready to defend my title—Heavyweight Lover of the World. I put the proof in the pudding, and you are about to get a mouthful of love!

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?

Pearl

Border Collie + Labrador Retriever Mix
12 years old
Female
63 pounds

Precious as a Pearl. I am rare and exotic like any black pearl you would find in the Tahitian seas. I have been naturally cultured over the years to be the perfect accessory to loneliness. I am a bit of a relic, something to be revered and admired, so children 12+ would be better company for a lady such as myself. I am not much into puppy games, so if I am to be around other dogs, I like them to be mellow and refined. I can live with cats and admire their less-than-exuberant lifestyles. I have seen a lot of pomp and circumstance in my days, and now I just want a bit of that nice and easy life. I enjoy lounging about and really like the quiet time crate training has afforded me. I want a family that will bask in my presence and treat me like the crown jewel of their love. Come see just how precious I can be.

There is a storm on the horizon. Dark clouds are going to bring a love storm of the century. And the weirdest thing is that it is all happening at your house. Yep, Doppler radar shows a large concentration of activity over your home. So I guess that means you are going to have a whole lot of love to deal with in the coming days. I feel partially responsible; I guess when you have as much love as I do, it starts to manifest itself in strange weather patterns. Would that be global heartwarming? I am no scientist, but I am pretty sure you have nothing to worry about. I am house trained, crate trained, get along with calm and respectful people 10+, can live with cats, and get along great with other dogs. So what would you possibly have to worry about?

Ruby

Labrador Retriever Mix

Female

I want to be the crown jewel in the happiness of your family. Bright and full of love, so much that it spills out into all parts of our life. Can a dog do that? Well, not if you’re looking for just a dog. But if you’re looking for an attentive, unwavering love and affection magistrate of companionship then you might be receptive to my services. I have had a long life of servitude and still have a few more years in me. My previous efforts provided me knowledge of house and crate training, and leash skills and basic commands. I’ve had opportunities to bond with children of all ages, other dogs, and even cats. I will take this pool of knowledge I have filled over the years and use it to bathe your family in the loyal loving support one receives from a dog of my caliber. Then you will understand why someone thought that I was a precious jewel.

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?

Shower me with praise and watch as my roots take hold in your family’s hearts. Gardening is hard work, and I am a hard-working breed, so we will go hand in hand!

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!

Life is a challenge, and we are all granted obstacles to overcome that make us stronger and more resilient than when we started. Why should life be so hard? Well, without difficulty there would be no triumph. I have yet to find my happy ending, but I have not given up. I know I can be the greatest dog anyone has ever loved! Sure, I may be shy at first, and it may take me a little time to trust new people. But I do know that there are people out there who are truly wonderful, and that is why I won’t give up hope. I am house trained and crate trained, do great with kids 6+ who are gentle and respectful, get along with other dogs, love to chase cats, and once you earn my trust, I am one heck of a cuddle monster. You’ve heard that saying: work hard and you reap the rewards of your labor. Well, in this case, your bounty will be my heart and all that it contains.

I am a lean, not so mean, hardcore love machine! My name is Spike, and I want to nail you to the wall of my affection. I know I can sound intense, but I am really just a little lover with some esteem issues. I would really love for someone to help build my confidence. Respectful kids 12+ would be perfect for the old Spikester! I don’t mind living with cats or other dogs. I was pretty new to crate training when I got here, but I have been making huge strides in improvement. When you are surrounded on all sides by loneliness, you need to find the right weapon to defend yourself. I await your guiding hand to wield me in victorious triumph!

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!

Cocker Spaniel + Dachshund Mix

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.

Oh, how I’m longing for a friend…someone to walk with, someone to play with, someone to cuddle with. I see other pooches living blissfully with their families, and I want that to be me! I just know I’ll make some lucky family very happy….with my charm, my smashing good looks, and my sweet-as-candy demeanor. I get along well with other dogs, and even kitty cats, and I adore children, too. And although I am just a babe with lots more to learn, I promise I am super-duper smart and eager to please. All I need now is a family to learn all kinds of new skills with, someone to teach me even more cool things, a person to call my friend.

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!

You may have heard of Xena, the Warrior Princess. She is pretty cool, but I am Xena the Wonder Pooch, and I come to battle loneliness and hardened hearts. So if you have a Cyclops or Griffin you need defeated, call that other girl.  But for hugs, kisses, and playtime, I am your pooch…just give me a moment to prove it! I can show respectful children 8+ what it means to be a Wonder Pooch. Cats and I have a love/hate relationship: I love to chase them, and they hate it! With other dogs I am quite the little warrior…I do love to play, but I won’t put up with no guff! I use my crate training time as practice for honing my wonder skills, and I would love to have my own fortress of solitude in my forever home. I can show you a happiness you thought only existed in legends, so let me bestow my wonder upon you!
