Grey
"I am a very good boy that walks very well on a leash and I am very patient during obedience training! I have lots of energy and I'll need someone that can keep up with me. Enough chatting, let's go for a walk!"

Carlton
"I am a bit shy and like to meet new friends slowly. I really was frightened about having my picture taken, but I tried to do my best because I really want a home and a family to love. Once I get comfortable with you, my sweet personality will come out and I can guarantee that you will love me as well."

Benji
"Hello! I am a happy-go-lucky kind of guy that loves to meet new people. I like to be on the go all the time, as I still have some puppy energy to me. I am the perfect walking/running buddy! I'll need someone that has the time to give me all of the physical and mental stimulation to keep me nice and well mannered. Please stop by and take me for a walk today!"

Dustin
"Don't let the calm nanosecond during my photo fool you. You should see the countless others they took of my wiggly puppy self. I like my sign, which says "I love life and the sun and the fall leaves. Let's go out and play 'til the cows come home." I am not sure what cows are but the rest is certainly true. Come meet me soon!"

Amelia
"Even though I am still a puppy, I have to admit I behave pretty well. I am fine with dressing up. I was Amelia Earhart for Halloween and I love to wear sweaters. You may also note that I posed perfectly for my photo. They took about six shots and they were all good. What I like best of all is just to be held and snuggle with my human besties."

Zara
"I’m a nice girl and like most hounds, I’m an explorer who loves to go for walks. I will curiously check out the whole area while I’m out for a walk. I’m very people-friendly and will make a great companion to my forever person. I’d prefer to be the only dog in my future home so that I can have all the attention on me and shower you with kisses! Let’s hang out so that we can get to know each other better and possibly become best friends!"

"Hi, I’m Walker! I’m told my name fits me perfectly cause boy do I LOVE to go on walks and not just play in a backyard type of deal. Actually, leash me up and let’s go explore!

Shawn
"I appear relaxed and calm in my photo but I have to admit I was very nervous about the whole thing and got a bit jumpy when confronted with scarey things like bags of treats and the camera. I did sit and I looked at the person holding my leash but when you are new somewhere there is a lot to get used to. I promise if you take me home I will get used to you and your home and all that will go away. You have to admit I am quite a handsome boy."
