Cyrus
"I may be a boxer, but boxing isn’t my thing. I’d much rather play with a squeaky toy or give you slobbery kisses. I’m the gentle kind of guy that likes to stop and smell the roses – or at least pee on them. I’m not half bad at walking on a leash, and I would love to show you. Then I will look at you with my big brown eyes and beg you to take me home, and we will be happy for ever after."

Obie
"Hi, I’m Obie! I’m a playful and friendly boy who’s looking for the perfect active human friend for me! Can’t you just imagine me as your fun furry sidekick? If so, don’t wait too long, come meet me today!"

Shiloh
"Hello, I’m the lovable and playful Shiloh! I love to play a good game of tug-of-war. I also LOVE belly rubs! I prefer to be the only fur-child in a family because I enjoy having all the toys to myself. I do enjoy playtime with other dogs but as long as it’s just a play date and they’re not taking my toys. If you’re looking for an active and loving pooch to join your family, then please come meet me!"

Thaddeus
"I was dumped off here, which wasn’t very nice, but I don’t hold grudges. Life is too short and too much fun. See my happy face? I’m ready to start a new life with people who love me because I love people and I know most of them are great. Come by and I’ll be glad to show you what a wonderful boy I am."

Hellen
"Whether you like lots of cuddles or long walks, that’s fine with me, because I like both of those. And I’m really good at both too! I also have a unique coat of many colors. They are all shades of brown and tan, but they aren’t spots, and they aren’t exactly patches. They are more like random areas that decided to be various sizes and shades. It’s weird because my face is so perfectly symmetrical. If you go for the unusual, I’m your dog."

Kitzy
"Hi there! I like you, and I hope you like me! Don’t I have a nice smile? If you’re a grown-up human without any pets or kids, you may be looking for a dog like me, who can give you the canine companionship you’ve been missing. I’m fun and curious, but I save my affection for adults. That’s just my way. Come visit and I bet I can smile my way into your heart."

Deena
"Hi, I’m Deena. I am a bit on the shy side but that’s probably because I don’t really understand why I’m here. I just hope that someone will give me the chance to warm up to them because I eventually will when I’m given the chance. I’m a sweet girl who is just waiting for the right person to come along and make me part of their life. I really hope that you are the nice person that I’ve been waiting for!"

Osito
"Hi, I’m Osito which means teddy bear in Spanish. I’m definitely like a big lovable teddy bear who loves to be around people! I get playful when toys are around and will patiently wait for a toy.  I do like treats but actually prefer attention from humans! I like to be silly, have fun, and lounge around next to my people. Please come by and meet me soon so that we can find out if I can be your teddy bear!"

Wayne
"I am a strong boy with a lot of energy, so I am looking for an active family who loves to exercise and play. I was advertising these desires to the people taking my photo by playing tug of war with them with my leash. I happen to think that life is for being happy and enjoying every day. Do you agree? Then adopting me will add to your joy as I share every day with you."
