Mocha sit 2018

Mocha

Mocha is a spayed, nine year old, female Pit mix. Mocha has a great personality, and she loves people. With dogs she is a little fussy. She likes some dogs, but not all, and at the shelter she doesn’t seem to like the other female dog although she is ok with the males. Mocha needs a home with an experienced dog owner, and no small children.

Ava foster 2
Ava 2018

Ava

Three year old Ava was reluctantly surrendered because of her owner’s housing situation. Ava is spayed and up to date with vaccinations. Ava walks well on a leash and is generally sweet tempered. She is sociable, and likes to be around people, but she is not good with cats, and probably should be the only dog in the home. Ava’s foster dad reports that Ava has very good house manners, loves to snuggle, is a great running partner, and she loves to ride shotgun.

Ava is Not at the Shelter. Ava is in a foster home. For more information about Ava, or to meet her, email:

Peaches_1


Peaches - adoption pending

According to volunteers, Peaches is aptly named because she is “a peach of a dog” with a great personality. Peaches is a six year old, spayed Pit mix who seems to get along with  people and other dogs. Peaches likes petting and would probably be a snuggler. She also enjoys car rides. Peaches should go to a home where there are no children under age 13.

Wilson sitting 2018

Wilson

Wilson is an exuberant, friendly and affectionate, neutered male who is about three years old.  Wilson came to shelter positive for Lyme, anaplasmosis and heartworm.  Now that he has successfully been treated for all three, he is ready for adoption.  We are looking for a stable but active household that will commit to spending the time on training that is necessary  to bring out the best this boy can offer.  Because he has not fully mastered household manners, we are not taking applications from homes with young children.  An experienced dog owner is preferable.  Wilson seems to like other dogs and does not appear to be bothered by cats. Wilson is very strong, but very friendly, and he is a fast learner. He likes attention, belly rubs, and cuddling. Wilson likes to hang out with people, and give kisses.

Elvis head_b 2018

Elvis

Elvis is a friendly and playful, ten year old Boxer/Pit mix. Elvis likes being petted, sitting in laps, and being with his humans. Elvis lived well with another dog: they would play and sleep together. Elvis requires a home with no young children.

Kobe 1 private

Kobe

Kobe is approximately 5 months old and weighs in at about 22 pounds. He appears to be a lab mix.  Given his current size and age, we are speculating that he will be around 35 to 40 pounds when full grown.  Kobe  is very sweet and loves everyone he meets  Kobe gets along well with cats and dogs  and especially loves to play with toys.  Like most puppies his age, Kobe  is working on his house training and leash manners. His foster family says that overall Kobe is pretty good with his house training and has come a long way with his leash manners.  Kobe is crate trained, neutered, micro-chipped, and current on vaccinations.  We require a home with no children under the age of 10 years.

Jolene private

Jolene

Sweet Jolene is approximately 12 months old and weighs 23 pounds.   She appears to be a schnauzer mix. Jolene is still very much a puppy.  Jolene will need an active home as she is quite energetic. Jolene loves to run and play with her foster buddies.  Jolene loves toys - unfortunately, her mission with toys is to search and destroy.  Jolene would do best in a home with a completely fenced in yard.  Jolene is working on her house-training and leash training.  Jolene is one very smart dog and learns quickly. Her foster Mom says that Jolene loves to lie at her feet when she works from home, and loves attention.  Jolene is current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, and spayed.  Due to her smaller size, the rescue requires a home with no children under the age of 12 years of age.

Francisco_private2018

Francisco

Francisco is a poodle mix.  Our veterinarian believes he is approximately 7 years old.  Francisco weighs about 20 pounds.  Francisco is a really sweet dog.  He is quiet and well behaved but still likes to run and play with his buddies.  His foster family says he is one of the best fosters they have ever had.  Francisco had a benign cyst removed from his shoulder and also had his teeth cleaned. Sadly, when Francisco arrived at our rescue he was severely matted and had to be completely shaved down.  Once his coat grows back in, he will be a very handsome dog.  Francisco does well on a leash and is house trained as well as crate trained.  Francisco will be a great companion for a loving family.  He is neutered, current on vaccinations, and micro-chipped.  Due to his small size, we require a home with no children under the age of 12 years.
