Name Age Breed Sex Status
Abby 1Y 2M American Pit Bull Terrier Mix Female Available

I'm a sweet and sensitive girl searching for my forever home.  I am very shy in new situations and when meeting new people.  However once I get more comfortable I really enjoy snuggling and being near people.  I enjoy playing with all different types of toys including frisbees, squeaky toys, and tennis balls.  I need to be the only pet in the home, but I have enough personality that you'll never be bored.  Children in my new home should be at least 12 years old because I am quite strong.  So what are you waiting for, stop by and say hello soon!

Bailey 1Y 3M Plott Hound mix Female Available

"Is that a ball?  Oh you have a treat?  Look, people!" That's just a quick glimpse into my busy brain.  I get very excited about everything and love to know what's going on.  I've been called a busybody which means I'll need a lot of physical and mental exercise.  Obedience training sounds really fun, and I train well with treats so I know I would make you proud! I like some other dogs and but I'm probably way too much for a cat to handle.  Children in my new home should be older and have dog experience.

Boomer 0Y 8M Australian Shepherd mix Male Available

I'm a shy guy who is still getting used to all the attention I'm getting here.  My new owners need to be dedicated to making sure I have a lot of positive social experiences to increase my confidence.  True to my breed, I am can be very active and would do best in an active home.  I might be able to live with another dog and could probably live with a cat too.  Children in my home do need to have experience with dogs because of my nervousness.

Boyd 2Y 1M Bluetick Coonhound Male Adopted!

Hi I'm Boyd, but sometimes I go by the name Stretch because I have such long legs.  You can't really tell in my picture, but I am big.  I am very true to my breed, and love sniffing everything.  I really enjoy "find it" games that make me use my nose in order to get treats.  I get along with most other dogs and might be able to live with a cat as well.  If you're looking for a fun-loving guy don't wait too long to come and meet me!

Bugsy 1Y 5M Hound/Retriever mix Male Available

I am a super playful and excitable young boy. I really enjoy toys, taking long walks, going for runs, and playing with other dogs. I have a lot of energy to burn, and I need a family to help me do just that. I do know some basic commands, but I've heard other dogs talk about going to obedience training classes, and I think I'd like to do that. It's fun to show off and let others know how smart I am. I can be rowdy and play a little rough sometimes, so I think children in my new home should be at least 12 years old. I like most other dogs, and I might be able to live with a cat, too. One more thing... I don't like to be left alone for long periods of time.  If I sound like I might be the dog for you, don't waste any more time -- Visit soon!

Carrie 0Y 8M Australian Shepherd Mix Female Available

I traveled a long way from Oklahoma and am still a little nervous to be here.  Everyone has been very nice to me since I've arrived and I am starting to get more comfortable and confident in myself.  I will need a family that will be patient with me and continue to build my confidence.  Because of this, children in my new home should have experience with dogs.  I like most other dogs but cannot live with cats.

Layla 1Y 3M Hound/Retriever mix Female Available in foster home

What a dog like me needs is patience, time, and a lot of love.  I traveled here in hopes of finding my forever home, but the shelter environment was very stressful for me.  Lucky for me, someone was nice enough to bring me into their home and foster me so I can grow and learn in a calm environment.  My foster mom says that I am a sweet and loving dog, and that I am becoming more comfortable each day.  Although I am trying very hard, I am still an extremely shy dog and my new owners will need to be dedicated to helping me get the proper socialization I need.  Because I am very nervous, children in my home should be at least 16 years or older.  Having another calm, but playful dog in my new home might be good for me and might help me come out of my shell...after all, I'm enjoying playing with my two new doggie friends in my foster home!  Would you like to give me a chance?

*Layla is in a foster home.  If you are interested in meeting her, please call the shelter at 630-420-8989*
