Charlie
"Hi, I’m Charlie! I’m pretty right? I’m pretty on the inside too but you’ll need to give me some time to show you. I have to admit…I do better with the ladies than men, and older kiddos would be best for me. Someone spent a lot of time teaching me tricks during the time I had spent time in a home…adjusting to life in the shelter has made me a bit nervous. Come by and meet me and let’s see how things go!"

Smokey
"You’ll never guess why I’m named Smokey. OK, you can guess. When I’m not trying to find something to herd, I like to play with squeaky toys or be petted by my humans. I also like being active, but in the hot, hot summer I can’t be out in the sun too long (can anyone, really?) with this thick, black coat. A nice evening stroll is fun, though. I’m a sweet, loving guy who wants a forever home. I hope it can be with you."

Nix
"Hi there, my name is Nix! I hope you’ll come by and meet me soon because I love to meet new people! I do enjoy a tasty meaty dog treat and going for walks. Everyone says that I am a sweet girl and I hope you’ll think so too."

Laura
"Hi, I’m Laura! I’m a sweet girl who is just as pretty on the inside as on the outside. I’ve got plenty of energy and I’m well mannered. I’m settling in my new environment nicely, but there’s something missing…you! How about we have some fun together?"

Ashley
"Aren’t I pretty? Don’t I look like the kind of dog you’d like to take home? I am full of fun and energy, and I’m quite smart too. I know the sit command, but I must admit I don’t do it for long because there are too many other things to do. I know the shake command too, but after I hand you my paw I give you the other one and it ends up being more like jumping up on my back legs because I’m just so happy! I do stay still for a belly rub, because who doesn’t love a good belly rub? If you take me home we could be best friends!"

Germany
"Guten tag! My name is Germany! I am a very sweet and playful young man. I’m an active guy too! I believe I would make a fantastic running buddy! I enjoy going out on adventures and daily walks. I hope my next adventure can be with you!"

Ireland
"Aren’t I adorable? I have a personality that matches. I love people and dogs, so much that sometimes I get excited and jump. But hey, you would too if you had as much love inside as I do! You might notice my back legs are a little odd. That’s caused by my CCL, the dog equivalent of your ACL. The folks here can tell you about it and how to fix it. Does it stop me from being my happy, frisky self? Woof, no! Nothing slows down Ireland. Take me home and I will add great joy to your life."

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!"

Tala
"Hi, I’m Tala! I’m a chunky yet funky girl who is looking for my forever home. I am very energetic and love to play fetch! I walk very well on a leash, so walks are a breeze for me. Come visit me and let’s go for a walk!"

Rockford
"Heeeeeelllloooooo! I’m Rockford! I’m the new kid in town and I’m ready to rock-n-roll! I’m a bundle of energy who’s always gung ho to be taken for a walk! I will fit in best with an active person who can handle my excitement when I’m the leash. If you’re looking for a fun dog who’s ready to have a good time and cheer you up, then I’m you’re man! 😎"
