Lynx was brought in as a stray and wasnt claimed by an owner. We adore this dog and our hearts break as we think of what his life may have been like before coming to us. He is about 3 years old and this dear boy is missing the tip of his ear and has many scars and wounds all over. He is super affectionate and kind, and he rewards our attention with the most gentle licks to the chin. He easily greets strangers and its almost as if he pleads, "will you take me home?" He met a wonderful female dog today and was also so gentle and appropriate with her. He is learning to walk on a leash and we are working on some confidence building in new locations. He did wonderful for his temperament testing and shows us zero aggression. He was extremely patient for a thorough body check to make sure he had no open wounds. He has a beautiful soul and spend some time with this love and you will see it too. Lynx will be neutered on March 6 and can go home the next day.

  • Border Collie, Mixed Breed

Merida was brought in as a stray and not claimed by an owner. She is a beautiful and very sweet Border Collie/Spaniel/? Mix that is learning to walk on a leash. She is about 3 years old and she is motivated to walk forward with high value treats and gentle coaxing. She loves gentle massage and she leans in to us for security. She is slightly nervous of novel locations, but is not shy with strangers. She bonds quickly and although we dont know if she is housetrained, she will not soil her kennel and waits until she is outside to potty. We introduced her to several dogs and although she was growly when they got in her face, she otherwise ignored them. We can tell the shelter is stressful for her and will post more as we get to know her better and as she gets more comfortable here. She will be spayed on March 6 and can go home the next day. Merida's adoption fee is $175 and includes spay, current vaccines, microchip, free vet visit, 30 days free pet health insurance, and custom engraved ID tag.

Marley's owner is in no position to have a dog, so here she is looking for a forever home that will nurture her, show her love and affection, and be kind to her. From a second party we found out she is 8 years old, she lived with 2 chihuahuas and older children, and she is housetrained. She knows her basic cues and loves to play with toys and balls. She loves treats and will happily sit and make eye contact, eagerly waiting for some. She is fearful of loud noises and yelling voices, and sometimes she barks at strangers passing by, but hand her a treat and she is your best friend. Who knows, maybe thats how she begs for attention? Marley will fill out and her overall condition is improving under our care and with good nutrition. We will post more as we get to know her better. Marley's adoption fee is $125 and includes spay, current vaccines, microchip, free vet visit, 30 days free pet health insurance, and custom engraved ID tag.

Lavinia came to us as a stray and wasnt claimed by an owner. From her crooked face to her many scars and lick granulomas, we can only guess as to her hard life, but she is very sweet and forgiving. At first a bit shy, she warms up and will happily take treats with a gentle mouth. She was tolerant for examination and body handling, and she allowed the trainer to clip her way too long rear claws. She met several dogs in a playgroup and after some much curious sniffing, did very well with them. When she met a puppy in the office, she came alive with happiness. There are marks all over her body which are consistent with been confined on a hard surface. We would love to see her in a loving home with lots of soft bedding to finish her life strong and content. We will post more as we get to know her better. Lavinia' adoption includes spay, current vaccines, microchip, free vet visit, 30 day free pet health insurance, and custom engraved ID tag.

Sky was brought in as a stray and wasnt claimed by an owner. We think shes not more than 2 years old, and this dear girl is overwhelmed at the changes in her life. She is quiet and rather shut down at the chaotic shelter, but she shyly greets us and gently takes treats. Treats are the way to her heart, as well as taking our time and not forcing anything on her. She walks slowly on leash, and she did fine meeting nice dogs of both sexes. She wasnt sure of playing and just hung out with them. She will greatly benefit from confidence building training, and once she feels safe with a human, she enjoys petting and affection. We will post more as we get to know her better. Pupdate - Sky met the office cat and gently sniffed him, but appeared more afraid of him than he of her! Sky's adoption fee is $175 and includes spay, current vaccines, microchip, free vet visit, 30 days free pet health insurance, and custom engraved ID tag.

Miranda was adopted from us as a 6 month old puppy and now, at almost a year old, she finds herself abandoned at the shelter once again. Her adopter has not responded to any of our attempts to find out why Miranda was left at a "friends" house and never reclaimed. Miranda is housetrained and she is absolutely fantastic with every other dog she has met. She loves playtime and toy time more than anything. Miranda is a bit unruly, she jumps up, she paws, she runs amok, she can be mouthy, but no dog deserves to be dumped. Miranda is not for an inexperienced owner, she will need to be with someone who will instill structure, predictability, kindness but firmness, and routine, all the while working to help Miranda expend her excitable energy appropriately. We have found that Miranda loves to carry things in her mouth, so when she greets us, she is given a toy to carry, then she wont excitedly nip us. Miranda does want to please, she just hasn't had anyone teach her impulse control. Miranda is a bit of a shy girl with strangers, but again, if given the chance to meet without pressure, she quickly bonds. Dont misunderstand, Miranda is a project dog and will need just the right home who will not use aversive training methods. She does love attention and affection. Miranda's adoption fee is $150 and includes spay, current vaccines, microchip, free vet visit, 30 days free pet health insurance, and custom engraved ID tag.

Lucille came to us as a scared stray and wasnt claimed by an owner. We have taken our time showing her that humans are safe and that we have wonderful yummy treats. Her progress has been slow and steady, although she still has a long way to go. She is now not moving away from us and will approach and take yummy treats. Lucille will need a patient adopter that has realistic expectations and us positive methods to help bring out the best in her. She has probably had a very tough life so far and deserves far better. Pupdate - Lucille is being introduced to nice balanced dogs and we see a lack of experience with them, not that she doesn't like other dogs. We are continuing her socialization and want to help her discover the world can be a great place! Lucille's adoption fee is $150 and includes spay, current vaccines, microchip, free vet visit, 30 days free pet health insurance, and custom engraved ID tag.

Winona came to us along with 3 beautiful pups that have all been adopted. This shy girl is actually very sweet and making baby step progress in her socialization to things like walking on a leash and trusting good humans. She shows absolutely no aggression, just some fear. Winona has probably lived a hard life and is ready for some love, some fluffy bedding, and more love! She will require patience, realistic expectations, and positive reward based training which we can help you with. She is definitely a mixed breed of this and that, and is medium sized along with some short legs. She is quiet in her kennel and low energy. The shelter is stressful, but shes a resilient girl. We will post more as she gets more confident. Pupdate - Winona is making good progress learning to walk on a leash, she also had a great playdate with 3 other dogs today, male and female, adult and puppy. She absolutely came alive and played like crazy today. It made US happy to see HER so happy! Winona's adoption fee is $150 and includes spay, current vaccines, microchip, free vet visit, 30 days free pet health insurance, and custom engraved ID tag.

Kraimer came to us along with Kozmo as owner surrenders, owner had too many dogs. Kraimer is about 1 year old and he looks to us to be a mix of Pug, Cattle Dog, and who-knows-what. He is very sweet and bonds quickly. He did well for his temperament testing and allowed the trainer to easily clip his nails. He is learning to walk on a leash, and actually is improving quickly. He loves treats and he does not guard his food. Kraimer lived with children and other dogs, and although he can get snarky if a stranger dog gets in his face, he doesn't pick fights and we feel in a short time he would become fast friends with other dogs. He loves playing with lots of different toys and he is gentle, sweet, and well-mannered. He is already a favorite. Pupdate - Although we can't readily observe it, a vet has diagnosed some hip dysplasia in Kraimer. He will thrive in a low energy home and has been prescribed some medication, so with a good diet, some pain management, and supplements you can keep this sweet boy pain free for years and years to come! Kraimer's adoption fee is $175 and includes neuter, current vaccines, microchip, free vet visit, 30 days free pet health insurance, and custom engraved ID tag.

Greyson came to us as a stray and wasnt claimed by an owner. He is about 2 years old and he has a beautiful grey coat with lovely markings. He loves people, he takes treats gently, but he isnt all that interested in food when he is focused on other things. He did ok for his body handling but was not used to being tethered and restrained. The extent of his behavior was to struggle a bit and whine softly, but we can also tell he hasn't had much training yet. He had a great playgroup with a sturdy female dog and a small female dog that dug in to their playgroup! He is not housetrained yet and probably spent his life outside. As the day wore on, we saw him gaining confidence and getting more comfortable. We did not cat test him yet, and will continue his exposure to male dogs. Stay tuned! Pupdate - we noticed that Greyson had a funny walk in a rear leg and today we had X-rays done. Imagine our surprise when we are told he has a badly broken leg. He is having surgery on Feb. 13 which will make him right as rain. The amazing thing is this guy has been so stoic and stellar, despite being in excruciating pain. We anticipate that once he is healed up, we will see a much more lively and energetic dog. Greyson's adoption fee is $150 and includes neuter, current vaccines, microchip, free vet visit, 30 days free pet health insurance, and custom engraved ID tag.

  • Pit Bull Terrier, Mixed Breed

Bridget was found in Madras as a wandering stray and wasnt claimed by an owner. What a lovely, sensitive soul she has! The kennel chaos is too much for her, but she loved her quiet time in the office and trainers space and she gently leaned in for petting and affection. She met a male dog and showed no aggression (actually avoided him) but we will test her further. Everything about her is kind, tinged with some worry, and so gentle. She bonds quickly, and we believe she will make someone a loyal and devoted companion. Shelter life is stressful for her, so please come get her out of here! Pupdate - Bridget was initially unsure and offensive with other dogs, both male and female, but we now know it was a lack of experience with them. She probably didnt get much interaction with them and therefore had been offensive aggressive with them. After some carefully choreographed sessions with a balanced male, we found that she is enjoying learning how to play! We will continue teaching this sweetheart how to have fun. Bridget's adoption fee is $150 and includes spay, current vaccines, microchip, free vet visit, 30 days free pet health insurnace., and custom engraved ID tag.
