FINN

5 Month Old Male

GERMAN SHEPHERD MIX

Finn is still growing and currently weighs 35 lbs. Its unknown how large he'll be when fully grown but he could grow into a big boy. He follows at your side when walking about the yard and will quickly sit to receive head scratches. Finn is learning his manners but still needs work. He sits to receive his meal and seems willing to learn, but he still wants to jump when greeting you, although that has improved a lot since his arrival. He is extremely social with other dogs and loves to play. Finn just seeks affection and will be totally devoted to his family. He is neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped. He appears to be housebroken but should not be left unsupervised until confirmed.

LOUISE

3 Month Old Female

TERRIER/CHIHUAHUA MIX

Louise is a tiny little girl at about 7 lbs. She is not expected to get big but could weigh up to 15 lbs or more when fully grown. She was shy at first but quickly adapted and found the most comfortable spots in the house. She loves to play with other small dogs and can be feisty, but most happy nestled on a soft bed or curled in a tiny ball on a lap. Louise loves chew toys of all types, laps, soft beds and fluffy nesting blankets. She will have all of the normal puppy tendencies so be prepared for chewing etc. although she has so far kept to chew toys/bones. She is crate trained but as a puppy still needs out early in the morning. She is spayed, vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped. She is working on housetraining and should not be left unsupervised until her training is completed.

OREO

10 Month Old Female

AUSTRALIAN CATTLEDOG MIX

Oreo is almost fully grown at 35 lbs. She is not expected to get much bigger but could weigh up to 45 lbs or more when fully grown. She is unbelievably smart and very attentive but needs work on manners and commands. She is a very quick learner and knows sit and is getting better on a leash (she had never seen one). Oreo will need lots of physical exercise and even more mental stimulation (seriously smart dog). She would be phenomenal as an agility dog and would likely do well on a ranch (she is FAST and can cut and weave). Oreo wants a person to call her own. She will be devoted to her family but may have too much intensity for small children. She is spayed, vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped. She appears to be housebroken but should not be left unsupervised until confirmed.

THELMA

3 Month Old Female

TERRIER/CHIHUAHUA MIX

Thelma is a tiny little girl at about 8 lbs. She is not expected to get big but could weigh up to 15 lbs or more when fully grown. She was shy at first but quickly adapted and found the most comfortable spots in the house. She loves to play with other small dogs (and makes attempts with larger dogs) but also is happy nestled on a soft bed or better yet a lap. Thelma loves chew toys of all types, laps, soft beds and fluffy nesting blankets. She will have all of the normal puppy tendencies so be prepared for the curiosity, chewing etc. although she has so far kept to chew toys/bones. She is crate trained but as a puppy still needs out early in the morning. She is spayed, vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped. She is working on housetraining and should not be left unsupervised until her training is completed.

BURT

2 Year Old Male

GREAT DANE/LABRADOR RETRIEVER MIX

Burt is a big, lovey lunk of a dog. He's fully grown at about 94 lbs. He was great for grooming, knows "Sit" and is doing well with his crate training. Burt could use a basic obedience class to polish up on Heel and other basic commands. He is playful, but not hyper. He's pretty good about not jumping on people. Burt gets along with other dogs, but is stiff with them at first. He'd do well with a doofy, playful female dog that's big enough to play without getting squashed. He'll be good with kids who are tall enough to have their faces clear of the wagging tail. He is neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, groomed, and microchipped. We believe him to be housebroken, but do not know how he'll do inside unsupervised.

LULU

6 Year Old Female

SHIH-TZU

Lulu is the sweetest little girl always wagging her tail. She loves to cuddle and give kisses, she also like to cuddle up in her dog basket. Lulu gets along great with other dogs, cats unknown but I think she would be fine with them. Lulu is up to date on all her shots, spayed, chipped, and just had her teeth cleaned. She will be fine with respectful children. Lulu's adoption fee is $400.00.

BRODY

6 Year Old Male

MALTESE/CHIHUAHUA MIX

Brody is an adorable little 4lbs big. He finds himself in need of a home because his first owner lost their housing, and the second owner passed away. He is a little cuddle bug who loves to be with his people all the time. Brody is house trained to piddle pads. He will do great with dogs who won't trample him and cats that won't eat him. No toddlers, please, due to his fragile size. Brody was good for his bath and loves going on walks in between long bouts of getting held.

CASEY

6 Year Old Female

MINIATURE SCHNAUZER

Casey is fully grown at a slightly chubby 25ish pounds. She is crate trained, appears to be housebroken, and absolutely loves going for walks. Casey is a mostly quiet (with the occasional schnauzer “WOO”) and loves attention from her people. She will do best with respectful children that won’t pull on her hair. Casey gets along well with other dogs and tested well with cats that did not run (we didn’t have a cat that ran this time). She is good for grooming, likes plush squeaky toys and snuggles on the couch. *Due to the anticipated high volume of calls and the fact that this dog’s foster home works full time, please be patient.

ROCKY

8 Week Old Male

TERRIER MIX

Rocky came to us as 1 of 7 puppies. We did not see mom or dad so we have no idea what their mix is. We are expecting him to be anywhere from 25 to 40 pounds as an adult. Rocky will require house breaking, crate training, and continued socialization. He is sweet, friendly, cuddly and playful. He should be fine with cats and other dogs. Children recommended to be 5 years or older. He is neutered, current on vaccinations and microchipped.

MAGGIE

6 Year Old Female

GREAT DANE

Maggie is fully grown at 105 lbs. She was good for her bath, is doing well with crate training and likes rides in the car. She is enthusiastic about attention from all people and prefers to be in their presence, although she is OK outside by herself for an hour or two as well. Maggie does well with other dogs that are not too forward - she'll ignore the other dog if the other dog ignores her. She is believed to be housebroken, but we do not know how she'll be left unattended in the house. She'll do fine with kids that are big enough to withstand her always-wagging tail. Maggie will use her weight to bulldoze to where she wants to go - her ideal adopters will be strong enough (physically and with will) to curb that tendency. She does not jump on people, and is not barky. She is spayed, vaccinated, dewormed, de-flea'd, microchipped, and has had her teeth cleaned.

MAMBO

2.5 Year Old Female

LHASA APSO/POODLE MIX

Mambo was in a shelter and begging to get out. Little did we know she was pregnant with 6 babies at the time. She was an outstanding mother to them, and they are all now adopted. She is looking forward to having a family of another kind! She is fully grown at 19 lbs, short legs and long body. Mambo loves to play with all toys - absolutely loves them. She likes chasing balls, crinkly toys, chewing toys, and her special passion is squeaky toys - sometimes to defluff and other times to just toss around. She is great with dogs (various sizes) and ignores the cat except for an occasional butt sniff. She is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed, and ready to meet a loving family. Mambo loves to sit near you and go for walks. She is not only leash trained, but also loves a good run - short legs and all she is very fast. Mambo lets you know when she needs to go out and can use a dog door.

JENNY

1.5 Year Old Female

GERMAN SHEPHERD DOG

Jenny is fully grown at about 67 lbs. She has a great temperament - sweet, loving, willing and super smart. Those qualities are both her blessing and her curse. Whoever had her before did some training with her, but was inappropriate with punishment. Jenny knows Sit and will crate willingly. She will allow her collar to be handled to put a leash on. However, once you try to lead her somewhere by the collar (without a leash) she becomes frantic. She does not bite, scream, or alligator roll; she will either roll over and submissively wet, or she will dart left & right on her belly trying to get away because she has no idea what is expected of her, and she expects punishment. This is a direct result of someone taking a smart dog and not being appropriate with their corrections or their timing - dragging her back to the scene of some crime (presumably either a housebreaking accident or something she chewed up). Miraculously, that seems to be the only damage done because Jenny will still freely approach people and loves to get attention. She also loves to run and play with other dogs.

Because of Jenny's background, she will be adopted to an experienced working-dog person who will take her through at least intermediate obedience training. We will not risk Jenny going somewhere to be home-schooled unless you are the person who runs the aforementioned obedience classes. We will ask which obedience school you're going to attend and what breed(s) of dogs you've taken to training there. This is a fabulous dog who's been done wrong, but she's not ruined!

Why are there only a few dogs on this site and
most of them are adopted already?

Many of the dogs we get are not ready for adoption right away. Only dogs that are ready will go up on the website. If the dog becomes ready for adoption just before a Pet Fair, it will probably be adopted from the Pet Fair before it ever makes it to the website. Often people will call us looking for a specific breed and we will place the dog with them before it ever makes it to the website. Our foster homes work full time outside of the home and have families to care for. Often we just don't have the time to get a picture and a description up on the web rapidly but we do try.  So watch the web, call us, and come to the Pet Fairs. You have to be actively searching for a dog while we do our best to save them from the shelters and make them ready for you to find. As soon as the webmaster is notified that a dog is ready or has been adopted, the website will be updated.
