"Hello! I am the curious Sadie! I like to check out everything going on around me. I am gentle older lady and have excellent leash walking manners. I like to relax most of the day but just because I’m a senior doesn’t mean that I don’t know how to have fun! I love playtime and being outdoors. I like to play with toys and I really enjoy splashing around in the kiddie pool! All I want is to be around people and I would especially love to be around you. Please visit me so that I can show you how wonderful I am!"

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."

Audi
"I'm like a finely tuned engine, going from 0 to 60 in seconds, and you'll admire my good looks. I'm full of curiosity, not to mention energy. My ideal family would be one that loves to spend time being active. My background is in herding, since I seem to come from border collie and great Pyrenees stock, but I certainly don't expect you to get livestock just for me! All I want is lots of love and time to stretch my legs. If that fits your bill, let's have a visit.”

So far I have learned to sit, lay, roll over, and shake! I do really great on walks and enjoy a good snuggled nap after. I really like having friends and love playing with other fellow pups! I look forward to meeting you someday!"

Piper
"I may be a little gray around the muzzle, but looks can be deceiving. I am an active girl who loves to take walks and am good on the leash once I calm down from the excitement of getting to go out. I’m happy, sweet and caring, and two of my favorite things are belly rubs and getting (and giving) lots of kisses. If you’ll be my Pied Piper, I’ll be glad to follow you home."

Brindy
"You wouldn’t believe it by seeing me run and jump, but a while back I got hit by a car and ended up with a broken pelvis. The folks here operated and fixed me right up, and the only evidence is some short hair where they shaved me. Of course that will grow back, and as for the running and jumping, that’s good for me, they say. Glad to oblige! I also love cuddles and all the attention you’ll give me, so come visit right away and we can discuss my moving in with you."

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."

Rooster
"I’m still mostly a puppy, at that stage where I’m learning how to be a dog. In other words, I’m a teenager. Dog teens aren’t like human teens though: I’m eager to learn and I love being around people. I do get spooked by loud noises, but I am trying to get over that. Having the security of a forever home would help, I’m sure. Wouldn’t you love to give me that?"

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!"

Thor
"Sometimes people are afraid of Rotties, but look at this smile! Do I look fearsome? Treats are the only thing that need to be afraid of me, because I will gobble them up! But I do sit on command first. I am somewhat nervous around people I haven’t gotten to know because I haven’t been an inside dog, but an experienced owner can help me overcome that. I have all the makings of a Good Boy, and that’s what I want to be. Can you help?"

Blitz
"Hi, I’m Blitz! I’m bonded with my sister Blair. We’re attached at the hip! We like to snuggle and sleep next to each other all the time. We’re usually always hanging out by each other because we can’t imagine life without one another. We’ve been diagnosed with the same condition which is called stomatitis, it’s an extreme inflammation of the tissue in the oral cavity. It’s the reason we’re both toothless and why my tongue hangs out a lot more than my sister. You may notice she has bigger paws than me because she’s a polydactyl which means she has extra toes. We are looking for a home where we can stay together because we really miss each other when we’re separated. We know there is someone special out there for both of us who will understand our medical needs. We would really love to find that person soon! If you think you can be the one for us, you should pay us a visit and see how wonderful we are. We can’t wait to meet you!"
