Nipsey a 2021

Nipsey - Applications on Hold

Pictures do not do this cutie justice!  Nipsey is a 5 month old pit-bull puppy who was surrendered when his owner's living situation changed.  Nipsey if full of puppy energy and loves being around people and other dogs.  He is a very goofy puppy and enjoys playtime a lot!!  Nipsey does appear to be housebroken, and is a super fast learner.  Nipsey has been working with a trainer on his leash manners, The trainer says Nipsey is super smart and looking to please.  Due to his high energy level, the need for continued training, and his size, we are looking for an experienced dog owner with no small children in the home.

If you are interested in Nipsey, email
to request an application.

Mack 2 2021


Mack is a handsome, six year old, pittie mix who was surrendered due to rental restrictions.  Mack may have some scent hound in his bloodline, as he loves to stick his nose into everything!   He walks well on leash and seems to be unbothered by other dogs.  His prior home was quiet, and given his size and strength, we are looking for an experienced dog owner without young children.  Mack is housebroken and will be fully vaccinated and neutered before adoption. 

If you are interested in Mack, email
to request an application.

Lucky a 2020


Lucky is a very happy and energetic, 5 year old, neutered male pit/hound mix who was surrendered when his owner passed away.  Lucky is fully housebroken, and extremely smart and easy to train.  While Lucky walks well on leash most of the time, he does tend to get overly excited when he sees another dog.  We have a trainer working on his manners, and he has made tremendous progress!  Lucky was living with another dog who has since been adopted, so we know he does not need to be an only dog.  In fact, we would love for him to go to a home with another dog who enjoys playing as much as he does.
Lucky loves people but we don’t think he would do well with cats, and due to his size, we do not recommend his adoption to a family with younger children.  An experienced dog owner would be a plus, as would a commitment to continue Lucky’s training after adoption.  Lucky is housebroken and up to date on all vaccinations.  He has tested negative for Heartworm and Lyme.
