Rowdy is such a friendly, handsome, active guy! He is ready to see all the action the big world has to offer. Rowdy will make a wonderful sidekick to share long hikes, walks, camping, and maybe even agility for fun. We think he would prefer to live with a female dog over a male dog in his new home. This is an active breed and will need daily mental and physical stimulation. We think children in his home should probably be over 10 since we have no history of him with young children. This boy is a real head turner for sure! Rowdy can be met and placed on hold but can't go home until after his September 24th neuter. His adoption fee of $300 includes his neuter, microchip, current vaccines, free vet visit, 30 days of pet health insurance, and engraved ID tag.

Smiley came to us as a result of a court case. How did he get the name "smiley"? Because he has this adorable smile that he gives us and he loves to carry around a squeaky toy. He is very friendly and outgoing, and he is about 5-6 years old. He is a mini Aussie and he walks nicely on a leash. He did great meeting the shelter cat and he was in with another male dog. We don't know if he is house trained, but he behaved very nicely inside the office. I CAN GO HOME TUESDAY THE 17TH. Smiley's adoption fee is $300 and includes neuter, current vaccines, microchip, free vet visit, 30 days free pet health insurance and custom engraved ID tag.

Mr. Sweets came to us as the result of a court case. He is definitely a staff favorite with his kind and calm behavior. As you can see, he loves water! He can seem a bit tentative at first meeting, but he was excellent for body handling, walking on leash, and a much needed grooming. He had dirt, weeds, and even wire twisted in his badly matted hind end, so he has a unique haircut, but will grow back just fine. He is about 4 years old and he did fine when meeting a female dog. We can always tell when he is very comfortable because he will take yummy treats happily! He has a very gentle nature and never offers to bite or show aggression. He is a staff favorite. I CAN GO HOME TUESDAY THE 17TH. Mr. Sweets adoption fee is $300 and includes neuter, current vaccines, microchip, free vet visit, 30 days free pet health insurance, and custom engraved ID tags.

Marz came to us as a result of a court case. He is 4 years old and he is shy and nervous around us. When another dog comes by, he livens up so we think a home with a great balanced dog would be perfect! Marz is going to be a "project dog" that will require patient, consistent, routine/handling and force-free training so that he can trust humans and strangers. He may never be a social butterfly, but he does deserve a good home inside a calm home. Pupdate - being inside a building is new to Marz, so he is making the adjustments. He is much more lively outside, and especially around another dog. Marz' adoption fee is $200 and includes neuter, current vaccines, microchip, free vet visit, 30 days free pet health insurance, and custom engraved ID tag.

Winslow was adopted from us at 7 months old over 4 years ago. Now he's 5 1/2 and he's back with us. This sweet boy is housetrained, and he has lived with other dogs, cats, and horses. Rather than try to explain why he was returned after many years, we would like to share what we think would be a great home for him. Winslow doesn't like a lot of chaos, commotion and noise, and those things make him slightly anxious. For instance, we all heard like a gunshot in the distance, and Winslow wanted back inside to his quiet kennel. He likes being with humans that don't bum-rush him, that are gentle and kind, and offer yummy treats. Maybe a home without lots of visitors coming and going, and a home where he can happily play with a furry pal, yet laze and cuddle will really make this guy shine. We all love Winslow and a trainer spent lots of time with him today (he knows his basic commands) and found him to be a sweet misunderstood dog. Just look at that sweet expression on his face! Winslow'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.

Wasco came to us as an owner surrender and we've got to be honest with you, Wasco was just behaving as most pups do and the fact that a Border Collie/Livestock guarding dog chasing the kids is not an unusual or unexpected behavior! He is only 9 months old, and he's definitely still just a big baby! There were lots and lots of people living in the home, and it was probably not the best fit for him. He can show slight timidity towards men, and when brought in by his owner, had no real attachment to the man. He is a very nice dog, he has been quiet, but we must say this dog loves other dogs and must go to a home where another dog lives. If he is alone, he will try to get to where dogs are. When he is with dogs, he is quiet, does not try to escape, and has a great time playing and just hanging out. He is housetrained. Wasco's adoption fee is $250 and includes neuter, current vaccines, microchip, free vet visit, 30 days free pet health insurance, and custom engraved ID tag.

Fontaine came to us as a stray and wasnt claimed by an owner. She is 2 years old, and initially she was shy and overwhelmed, but given where she was found, we can understand that she may not have had an easy start in life. Staff have been very loving and patient, and she is now way more outgoing, and walking on leash! She is a super affectionate dog, and she leans in for petting and attention. She gives solicitous licks to the chin, and the more petting, the better! Fontaine is somewhat fence reactive towards passing dogs, so we are working with her on greeting and playing with other dogs. She had a playgroup with a great patient male, and at first she was a bit over-bearing with him, mounting him, but when given a noise distraction, she backed off and started to interact calmly. By the end of the playtime, she was relaxed and just hanging out with Pongo. Fontaine is a bit handshy and she doesnt seem to have been taught any basic cues, but she loves treats, and just needs to be shown force-free, that good things happen when she sits instead of jumps, and how life can be good and safe. As you can see in her photos, she is in love with one of our staff members, thats a great sign that she wants to bond! Fontaine'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.

Ziggy was originally adopted from us 2 years ago as a pup, but was returned recently because he "didnt like going to the dog park." Ziggy loves other dogs, and does fantastic in smaller playgroups, but he doesn't enjoy some of the rude and bossy male dogs at the dog park. (We say dont take him, then, but the owners insisted on it because their other dogs liked to go.). Ziggy is housetrained, he is crate trained, and the only things hes scared of is smoke alarms and fireworks. Ziggy will guard his food from other dogs, but a simple fix for that is to feed them separately! Ziggy might climb a fence if he is left alone in a yard, so secure fencing when he cant be with you is a good idea. He knows all his basic commands and he is good on a leash. Ziggy is definitely a mixed breed dog and there is no telling what would come up on a dna test. He's got brindle speckles on his legs and some beautiful markings. It was hard to get a good photo of him because he was eager to get treats and petting! Ziggy's adoption fee is $200 and includes neuter, current vaccines, microchip, free vet visit, 30 days free pet health insurance, and custom engraved ID tag.

Gus came to us as an owner surrender, convinced by the Animal Control Officer to find him a new home. Gus' mom was a red nosed Pit Bull and dad was a Brindle pit. He is 8 months old and is behind on normal socialization. He isnt quite housetrained, and was allowed somehow to run after neighbors. Besides the scary neighbors, he hasnt been exposed to strangers or visitors to the home. Gus will benefit from an experienced handler that will do "catch up" on the things that Gus has missed out on. He is submissive towards us, and we can tell he is overwhelmed, so stay tuned for updates on how he is progressing. We will give you lots of advice on how to help him be a great positive and confident boy, but dont take him home if you wont do the work. Gus is very nervous around young children so an adult only home would be best. Pupdate - Gus has made great progress. He eagerly comes forward in his kennel for yummy treats, he loves playgroups with other dogs, and we have seen him much more relaxed around strangers. Gus'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.

Tater and his sister Tiggy, were given away to someone that brought them both to us to find new homes. They are still pups, at about 6 months old, and are doing well on their leash training. Ongoing force-free training will be a great idea and both pups are motivated to learn and train. They love playgroups with other dogs and they are both friendly and affectionate. Pupdate - Tater was returned because his owners had to move and couldnt find a place that would accept his size and breed. They also wanted Tater to go to dog parks, but dog parks just weren't his thing. He is particular about his playmates, nothing wrong with that, We will update his behavior profile after we have him in some playgroups, because word is he was picky about playmates. Tater'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.
