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.

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.

JENNY

1.5 Year Old Female

GERMAN SHEPHARD 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!

Coco

If you would like to help with the cost of my care, click on the PayPal button

COCO

2 Year Old Female

CHINESE SHAR PEI

Coco is fully grown at the perfect size of 33 lbs. She is a bit shy when she first meets someone and will get growly when she's uncomfortable. She took about 3 days to settle in, and has blossomed into a funny, adoring, loyal, loving girl with her foster home. Coco will do the same in a new home if they're patient and give her a little space when she first arrives. She likes to do the approaching rather than be approached (until she knows you). She's crate trained, walks (pulls) on leash, knows "sit" and is accustomed to being groomed. Her favorite things are to be fed, petted, and curling up on a cushy soft bed. She is not noisy in general, but will bark when there are squirrels or when someone comes to the door. Coco is spayed, microchipped, and has had surgery to correct her lower eyelids. Her skin and ears are good (!) so she is not on any medication. She will run and play with other dogs, but is fine alone. She can be pushy with them (as shar peis will do). She is not terrible with cats, but she will bark at them from her crate if they go by. She'll need an adult home that has little traffic or with someone who's willing to put Coco up if she gets overwhelmed with people coming over. Breed/shy dog experience preferred.

HANSEN

5 Year Old Male

GREAT DANE

Hansen is 5 years old and a very large boy! He came to us extremely underweight at a very skinny 130 pounds. He has been in our care and gaining weight, he has been neutered and vaccinated. Hansen stands almost 35 inches at the shoulders, that is not including his head height. He does walk on a leash but has had no formal obedience classes. He is quite shy at first and seems to have lived in someone's backyard all his life. Everything seems to be new to him when out on a walk, but he does great and takes in all the sights and sounds. Hansen does get along well with other female dogs, he does like to go "looking" for the cat but doesn't seem to harm it once found. He is crate trained and is working on his indoor skills as he is so large and still has tons of energy. He should top out at approximately 150 pounds. Hansen would love to be an indoor dog with his people. True to the breed he loves to lean on you.

RALEIGH

7 Month Old Female

GERMAN SHEPHERD MIX

Beautiful Raleigh is 30 lbs now, and is expected to be around 50 lbs when fully grown. This rambunctious girl is a big handful – full of energy and no training at all. Her foster mom is teaching her some manners, and we’re looking for an adopter who will make obedience training a high priority from the start. Raleigh is a quick learner who has picked up crate training and is learning to walk at a heel. The other dogs in the household are teaching her what it means to be polite in a doggy group setting. With some consistency and solid boundaries, she will be a fantastic companion. Please be prepared to discuss your experience with dogs as well as which training classes you’d attend with Raleigh. The adoption fee $350.00

SQUISH

1 Year Old Male

CHINESE SHAR PEI (HORSE COAT)

Squish is fully grown at about 40 lbs. He loves everybody and will play all day with other dogs. Squish is a supremely nice dog who is smart and in need of obedience training. He is crate trained and leash trained, but does not understand that he can't make a chew toy out of whatever he finds (your socks, slippers, the welcome mat, etc. so will need to be under strict supervision when in the house. Since he is not ready to be left alone in the house, we do not know for sure if he's housebroken. However, this breed is so easy to housebreak, it should be a non-issue. (He does not even lift his leg when outside).

Squish came to us in not-so-great shape. We had entropion eyelid surgery done, which enabled him to open his eyes and not be in pain. He is on antibiotics for a skin infection that is improving, but not done. We will send a generous supply of antibiotics with his adopters. His hair is growing back in, and he smells much better than when he arrived, but he is still getting weekly medicated baths. His ear infection is nearly gone too! Despite not having the greatest care early on, Squish is responding to treatment and has an amazingly good attitude.

TYLER

1-2 Year Old Male

GREAT PYRENEES

Tyler was a thin 75 lbs at the shelter but he has a healthy appetite and is starting to gain weight. When fully grown, he may weigh upwards of 130 lbs. Tyler is very gentle but does not always know his own strength. He loves to play with all toys, absolutely loves them. He likes chasing balls, chewing on bones, playing with ropes, and flinging things in the air. He also enjoys wrestling and running around with like size dogs and is thrilled to get belly rubs. He learned quickly not to jump on people and knows sit and a few other commands. His instinct to guard his home and his people is very strong but he is ok if small dogs take his toys away! Tyler is friendly with female dogs of all sizes but his playfulness combined with his size is too much for smaller dogs and for small children. He has not yet been around too many male dogs. Socialization with people will be necessary as this breed is often more comfortable left alone guarding the flock. He is house broken and knows how to use a dog door. He is up-to-date on his shots, chipped, neutered and ready to meet a loving family. Tyler needs someone willing to take the time to properly socialize and train him. He will become a devoted and very affectionate companion, given time and consistency. He is funny and smart. His preference is men but using a slow introduction, he is very loving and attentive to females too. Please review the breed characteristics of the Great Pyrenees breed.

Maggie came to us almost bald from demodex mange. She has completed her medication and her hair is growing back. She is ready for her own home. Maggie is very active, loves everyone and everything in life. She could use some basic obedience classes but overall is an absolutely adorable, happy, energetic dog! She is fine with other dogs and cats. She is good with respectful children. Maggie weighs 10 pounds and is full grown, up to date on vaccinations, spayed and microchipped. Once her hair is completely grown back in she will be beautiful! The adoption fee $260.00

KINGSTON

2 Year Old Male

CATAHOULA

Kingston is deaf. He was rescued by a good samaritan from a breeder that was going to euthanize him due to him being deaf. Kingston has grown up in a home with 4 children and lost of activity. He is a great boy. Unfortunately his owner has taken on extra work hours and is no longer able to care for him. He could use some official obedience work, but knows some basic skills. He is crate trained, walks on a leash and will sit on command (hand signal). He is a little shy of new dogs but not aggressive, he will warm up to them and cohabitant with ease. He loves to lean on you and is overall a nice mellow house dog. He will require a fenced yard and someone willing to go a little above the average work of a dog, not like you can just call him to come in, you have to get in his line of vision. Kingston loves to please and is eager to learn. Overall he is a nice mellow companion. He was great for his bath and blow out.

BONUS

3 Month Old Male

TERRIER MIX

Bonus is currently 10 lbs and is expected to be in the 20-30 lb range when grown. He is a bundle of energy and is super smart. He is not fully housebroken yet, but he sleeps all night in a pen or crate without going potty. Bonus needs to go to puppy classes for his basic obedience; he learned “sit” in a matter of minutes. He’s not too barky overall, but he sure has a loud voice when he wants something (i.e. breakfast, to go out potty, dinner). This is a nice, active puppy who will be fine with other dogs, cats and children 12 and up. He will be too much for younger children or elderly/frail people.

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.
