Scout a 2017

Scout

Scout can be a bit nervous, but when he warms up, he’s really sweet. Ten year old Scout is a male Chihuahua who was surrendered when his elderly owner could no longer take care of him. In his former home Scout lived with another dog, and he would probably be ok with another older, quiet, laid back dog. Because Scout is timid, a quiet, adult only household would be best for him.

Bailey_front_2015

Bailey Beagle

Bailey Beagle is friendly, playful, and very energetic. He loves to run in a fenced yard. Bailey Beagle is also an escape artist who can find his way out of a fenced yard. Bailey Beagle likes to be around people: he enjoys sitting and sleeping with his owner. Because Bailey Beagle is so social, he will bark if left alone. Bailey Beagle gets along with children and with other dogs, but not with cats. Bailey Beagle is about ten years old.

 

Bailey_b_2016

Bailey - adoption pending

Bailey is a sweet, friendly little guy.  He likes to walk, and does  well on leash.  Bailey likes to be petted and to receive attention. We’re not sure of his age, but he’s probably an older adult, and therefore could do well in a less active environment.

Desi_flowers3_2017

Desi - adoption pending

Desi is a two year old, spayed, female hound who is very friendly and exuberantly energetic. Whoever adopts Desi must be willing to accept her high energy, and be willing and able to spend time with her to burn that energy off.  Therefore, someone needs to be home most of the day, and be willing to exercise her.  Desi could get along with another dog (but not cats) who is not assertive, but it’s  likely that Desi would do better being an only dog as long as her humans are willing to work her and work with her.  The adopter should also understand that Desi needs comprehensive training to channel the great deal of energy that this otherwise delightfully endearing and loving dog has. Desi is up to date with vaccinations, and house trained.

Milo 2017

Milo

Milo is an extremely good-looking, 10 year old, neutered, male Terrier mix who was surrendered when his owner moved.  Milo is looking for a patient, experienced dog owner to share his senior years with.  Milo needs a calm home without children (adult children would be fine,) as they scare him.  Milo has lived with another dog but would probably not do well with cats.  Milo can be playful up to a point, but will let you know when he wants some alone time.  Milo is up to date on all vaccinations, walks well on leash, and is fully housebroken.

Tina_b_privatae

Tina

Tina is a very sweet 4 year old Dachshund mix.  Tina is a bit shy when she meets new people as she did not have the best life.  That said, once Tina is comfortable with her surroundings, she is your best friend. Tina would love nothing more than to sleep at your feet while you work, or cuddle on the couch when you watch TV.  Tina is a quiet dog overall. Tina is house broken and crate trained.  Tina would do best in a home with a fenced in yard and another confident dog to help Tina become more confident herself.  Tina is a smart dog and learns very quickly.  Tina gets along well with other dogs and is fine with cats but would prefer the company of humans.  Tiny rides well in the car and walks well on a leash.  Tina is current on vaccinations, microchipped, heartworm tested, and she is spayed.

If you are interested in adopting Tina, please email: depauls339@gmail.com. Please don’t call or email the shelter because volunteers have no additional information.
 

Tiberon_private

Tiberon

This sweet little pup was left at an animal control with his buddy. Of course they had not been  well cared for, so were treated for heart worms and have also been started on a monthly preventative. Tiberon is a brown Chihuahua mix. He is approximately 2 years old and weighs  9.5 lbs. He is initially a bit shy when he meets new people, and takes a few hours to settle into his new home. Tiberon loves to run around the yard with his buddies, and play. He is very well behaved, loves people, and gets along well with other dogs. Tiberon is house and leash trained. He is going to be a great dogs for someone. Tiberon has a minor luxating patella which is very common in small breed dogs.  We had our orthopedic veterinarian evaluate Tiberon and he does not recommend any further treatment. Tiberon is neutered, current on vaccinations, and microchipped.

Merida side private

Merida

This sweet little girl was surrendered to a high kill shelter in Texas.  Merida is about 4 months old and weighs 15 pounds. We are not really sure what mix Merida is other than some type of terrier.  Merida is just the happiest little dog.  She loves to run and play with her buddies, and has a very sweet disposition.  Merida is working on her house training and leash manners and is learning very quickly.  Merida is spayed, microchipped, and current on vaccinations.

Hoover_a_private

Hoover

Hoover is a 14 week old lab/schnauzer mix.  Hoover has some big feet, so this pup is going to be a good size dog when fully grown.  Hoover is a true water dog and loves to splash in the water bowls and jump in the bird bath.  Hoover has four siblings, all smaller and all females.  All of them are typical pups.  Sadly, all of these pups had parvo when we rescued them and spent a week at the emergency center being treated.  Thankfully, all of the pups are now healthy and ready for a new home.  As with any pup, Hoover is working on house training and leash manners.   Because Hoover will be a big dog when he grows up, we feel that apartment living is not suitable.  We are looking for a home with an experienced dog owner and a fenced in yard.  Hoover is neutered, microchipped, and current on vaccinations.

Stella a private

Stella

This adorable little terrier mix is approximately 4 years old and weighs 18 lbs. Stella is a bit of a diva as she prefers human food to dog food, but her foster family has been breaking her of that habit! She could stand to lose a few pounds but then again can’t we all .   We are not sure of Stella’s mix but are guessing that she is a Jack Russell mix. Stella is house trained and leash trained.  Stella gets along well with other dogs but can get snippy when it’s treat time. Ultimately, Stella would love to be an only child.  Stella loves toys.  She will squeak them for hours and play by herself.  Stella loves to ride in the car and will hop right up in the seat.  Stella is going to make a great companion as she loves to sit on your lap and get belly rubs. We prefer a home with no small children as we have not tested Stella with children under the age of 14.  Stella is spayed, current on vaccinations, heartworm tested, and micro-chipped.

If you are interested in adopting Stella, please email: depauls339@gmail.com.

Boris_private

Boris

Boris is a toy fox terrier mix. He is approximately 12 months old.  Boris weighs 15 lbs. Boris is a sweet little dog but he does not like being left outside or alone for too long.  We suspect Boris has some separation anxiety.  Boris gets along well with other dogs and cats, and loves people. Boris would do best in a home with another pet to keep him company.  Boris is going to make a great companion for someone who can make him feel safe and secure. He does pretty well on a leash and seems to be house trained.  Boris is a quick learner and is very willing to please.  We prefer a home with no little ones who will inadvertently leave a door open.  Boris is neutered and current on vaccinations.

If you are interested in adopting Boris, please email: depauls339@gmail.com. Please don’t call or email the shelter because volunteers have no additional information.
