Goose 2 2024


We don’t know much about this cute fellow, other than he was brought to the shelter as a stray and never claimed.  Goose is approximately 1 year old and seems to be a lab mix, what he’s mixed with we just don’t know.  Goose loves walks and being around people but has not enjoyed the confinement of his kennel run.  We are working on crate training however, he may never be a dog that will feel comfortable crated for any length of time.  While Goose knows some tricks, he needs help learning how to stay calm around new people (he just loves jumping on them and giving them kisses), and that barriers can be a good thing and are not something to be scared of.  Goose would do well as an only dog with a family willing to spend time training him on how to be the best dog ever!  Due to Goose’s size, we are looking for a home without small children (no one under 13 years old, please) and someone with experience in training a young dog.

Sabrina b 2024


:  If only this sweet girl could talk she could tell us what her life has been like before we met.  What we do know is that Sabrina had been rescued (along with another dog) by her owner, from Facebook,, but after being in the home only a couple of days her owner realized it was too much for them to handle. Sabrina is approximately 4-6 years old and has had multiple litters of puppies.  She appears to be housebroken and enjoys her walks almost as much as she enjoys hanging out with volunteers in the play yard.  Sabrina has lived with another dog but she does like to be the dominant one, so please be considerate of that if there is another dog in the home.  She can be very focused when playing with a favorite toy but does give it back to you without compliant.  Due to her size, we will not adopt to a family with children under 13 years of age.

Toby  snow 2024

Toby snow b 2024

This handsome young man was surrendered to the shelter when his owner experienced health issues.  At just 2 years old, Toby still acts like a puppy and is very entertaining!  Typical of a Husky, he is vocal and happy to share his every thought with you.  Toby can happily entertain himself but would enjoy a fenced-in yard to stretch his legs and throw his ball around. He seems like he wants to be a solo, so no other dogs, cats or small animals please!  We will also not adopt to a family with children under the age of 13.  Preference will be given to applicants with Husky experience.
