Ella sit 2019


Ella is a six year old Cane Corso who arrived at the shelter from a neglectful situation. Yet Ella loves people. Ella is not yet house trained, and she is not used to walking on a leash. We are working on both of these issues while she is at the shelter, but she will need an experienced dog owner, preferably one with knowledge of the breed, who will work with her. Ella is up to date with vaccinations, is heart worm and Lyme negative, and has been spayed. Ella will likely attach quickly to her new owner, which could result in overly protective behavior. Because of her size, she will need a home where there are no small children or other pets.

Velma - adoption pending

Velma is a beautiful, two year old, retriever mix who was surrendered when her owner’s housing situation changed. Velma can be timid in new situations with new people, but she warms up with time and patience. Velma is playful, and appears to like other dogs. She is housebroken, and knows some basic commands, but she could use more training to improve her leash skills. Since Velma does not adjust quickly to change, we are looking for a quiet home for her, with no young children. Velma is current with vaccinations, but she will need to be spayed before going to a new home.
