Andy 1Y 2M Labrador Retriever Male Available

What's a happy-go-lucky guy like me doing at the shelter?  Searching for my forever home of course!  I came from Oklahoma, where I lived my life outside.  I'm looking forward to a life of comfort and leisure that I know I deserve.  My energy level is pretty typical for my breed, I love to play with toys and sometimes get so excited that I forget my manners.  I am still fairly young and will need obedience training in order to be the best dog I can be.  Children in my new home need to be at least 16 years old because of my strength and puppy behavior.  I can also be timid around loud noises.  I like some other dogs, but should probably be the only dog in my new home because I am not a big fan of sharing my things.  I might be OK living with a cat though. 

Brutus 9Y 2M Beagle / Terrier mix Male Available

I'm a bit of a shy guy when it comes to meeting new people.  My new family will need to be patient and understanding that it might take some time for me to get comfortable with them.  One quick way to becoming my friend is to take me for a walk.  I love being outside and get very excited whenever I see a leash.  I think I would be happiest in a quiet home with no young children and no other dogs.  I could possibly live with a dog-savvy cat though.  One last thing about me, I don't have any teeth.  This doesn't stop me from eating, though it does have to be soft food.  If a sweet senior is what you're looking for to complete your family, stop by soon!

Finley 9Y 4M Jack Russell Terrier mix Male Available

Bouncy and exuberant are just two words that describe me.  I have a lot of energy, love to play, and can never get too much attention!  Soft, squeaky toys are probably my favorite to play with, but I'm not too picky so long as you're playing with me!  I am not afraid to tell you when I want attention and can be a needy at times so it would be best if my new owners were gone no more than 4 hours a day.  It would also be best if I didn't live anywhere with shared walls (apartment, condo etc).  My new family will need to be dedicated to making sure that I get proper exercise, both physical and mental, to make sure that I stay happy and healthy.  It would be best if children in my new home were at least 8 years old.  I might be ok living with another gentle dog and possibly a dog savvy cat as well.  If you're looking for a sweet senior stop by soon!

Jenny 0Y 4M American Pit Bull Terrier / Retriever mix Female Adopted!

Excuse me, big puppy coming through!  And we all know what that means...A HUGE DOG!  I'm going to need a lot of food, a lot of exercise, and a big yard where I can run and play would be nice.  Overall, I'm pretty laid back but can be playful too, especially around other dogs.  I think it would be nice if there was another dog to welcome me into my new home and show me the ropes.  I think it would be best if children were at least 5 years old and had experience with dogs since I still have a lot of growing and learning to do.  Speaking of learning, it is very important that my new family starts working on obedience training with me right way.  It will also be important that I get the proper socialization I need.  If you have room in your heard and your home for a big dog, consider me!


Joey 4Y 0M Doberman Pinscher Male Adopted!

How you doin'?  My name is Joey and much like the Friends character, I'm a happy, goofy, and loveable guy!  One of my fun quirks is that I love to sit on laps.  When I see someone sitting down, I back myself right up and plop down.  I really enjoy meeting new people and making new friends, the more the merrier I say!   I do have some problems with my back legs, so sometimes sitting and walking on slippery surfaces are hard for me.  But I don't let that slow me down!  I get along pretty well with most other dogs and might be able to live with a cat.  Because I sometimes don't like to share my things, it would be best if children were at least 12 years old.  My new family should have experience with my breed and needs to have experience owning large dogs.  Stop by soon and say hi soon!

Kai 6Y 1M American Pit Bull Terrier mix Female Available

You know what really perks me up on a sad day? Tennis balls. I just absolutely love them! I could play all day long, well with some breaks in between. I will need to be your one and only pet, but trust me, there's a lot of me to go around. The vet recommends that I go on something called a "diet". I'm not sure what that means, but if it means I'll be healthier and happier then I'm all for it! They also recommend exercise, and hey, what better exercise than chasing a tennis ball! If I sound like the perfect dog for you, stop by soon and ask to see me! Oh and p.s. because of my size and strength, it would be best if children were 12 years and older. Can't wait to meet you!

Mabel 9Y 1M Rat Terrier mix Female Available

Did you know there are a lot of great things about adopting a senior dog? I, for example, am as mellow and gentle as they come. I'm what you would call a couch potato and would rather spend the day watching T.V. than running around outside. I would prefer a quiet home to spend my golden years, and probably one without too many stairs as well. It would be best if children are 8 years and older since I can be nervous in new situations. I get along pretty well with other small, calm dogs. A young, rambunctious pup would be way too much for me. I could probably live with a cat as well. If a snuggle buddy is what you're searching for, then hurry up and stop on by!

Speckles 0Y 6M Australian Cattle Dog mix Male Available

I'm a pup who's full of energy and always on the go!  Because of my high energy level, a lively active household is a must.  I can't wait to go on daily walks and runs and to try some fun outdoor activities like hiking or agility courses!  I will also need plenty of mental exercise like treat puzzles and kongs to keep my mind busy.  Another great way to get mental exercise is obedience training.  I'm friendly and playful with most other dogs, but am too exuberant for a cat.  Children in my new home should be at least 12 years old because I can be jumpy and am still learning my manners.  It would be best if my new owners had experience with my breed so I don't get bored.  If you think you have the energy to keep up with me, I would love for you to come in and say hi!

Toby 4Y 8M American Staffordshire Terrier Mix Male Available

Do you want to hear a story?  Because I love to tell stories, actually I just love to talk in general.  I'm a very friendly and outgoing guy and enjoy going to new places and meeting new people.  I get along with some other dogs and might enjoy having another dog in the home so long as we get along during our meet-and-greet at the shelter.  I might even be ok living with a cat.  I do have possible food allergies, so I need to be on a grain-free diet.  I don't mind, I'll pretty much eat whatever is put in front of me.  It would be nice if my new family has experience with my breed and how energetic we can be.  Children in my new home should be at least 12 years old because of this as well.  If an energetic dog is what your looking for, stop by soon and ask to see Toby!
