I am a sweet, silly, love bug! I am always happy and love to have fun! I like to think I am a snuggly lap-dog, even though I am 60 pounds! I LOVE to have my belly rubbed, and I will rollover onto my back and smile at you! I might be shy and spend a lot of time in my crate at first, but I never bite, snap, or growl.
I am crate trained and will go to my crate when mom or dad opens the crate door and says “Pen up!” I don’t bark or whine when I’m in my crate, as long I have a pile of soft blankies to lie on. I am potty trained and will NOT make a mess in my crate, even overnight! If I’m left overnight outside of my crate, sometimes I can’t hold it and have to pee inside. I like to curl up and snooze on the couch, or stretch all the way out and take a nap on my back! I will race back and forth across the yard with a big smile on my face! I haven’t figured out how to play “fetch” yet, but I would love for someone to teach me!
I love to play and spend time with mom and dad! Dad will pick me up and tell me I am his tiny puppy! Mom will throw a blankie over me and dad will call me an “Afghan Hound”! I am learning that it is fun to chew on rubber toys, but I’m not very interested in them yet.
I live with another big dog (120 pounds!) and I REALLY want him to play with me, but he’s too old and not interested in playing. I bow to him and swat my paws at him, but he just ignores me. I live with 3 little dogs, and I get along great with them, but they don’t like to play either. There are 2 cats in my house but I just ignore them. If they hiss at me, I will run away!
I can walk okay on a leash, but I need lots more practice. I am not used to car noises yet, so I don’t like when traffic passes me on a walk. I like everyone once I get to know them, but I might be too rambunctious for a house with anyone I might knock down, like a small child or elderly person. I don’t know my own energy sometimes!

Our application can be found online at here.
Our adoption fee for dogs that are not seniors is $220. All dogs are spayed or neutered and up to date on vaccines and heartworm.
Our adoption process includes an application, personal and vet reference checks, and a home visit. We do not ship dogs under any circumstances.
We do not have a facility; all of our dogs are fostered in private homes. To view our dogs, please check our front page for the dates of our next Pet Parade. Appointments outside of Pet Parade to visit our dogs are only available after an application has been filled out, and processing has begun.
Please be kind to our volunteers. E-mail inquiries will be answered much faster than phone inquiries; our phone number is a voice mailbox only.

Other organizations are rescue groups run by busy volunteers who may take a while to reply.
