Hattie is such a sweetheart! At first she may seem a little standoffish, but after proving yourself with a treat then she will be your best friend. She loves to get pets and cuddle up to you, but only once you invite her to do so. Her eyes are soulful and can break your heart, but behind those sad looking eyes is a very happy girl. She was found roaming the streets where she had been living for a number of months. She may look and act a little older, but she is only a year and a half. That’s what life on the streets does to ya. She is such a good listener that in the rare case that she may misbehave, she will stop with a simple verbal correction. She can be a little barky only if someone is at the door or if she is scared. She is also a destroyer of plush toys, but loves to chew on bones! So far she knows sit and down, and we are working on shake. She is house, crate, and potty trained already. She also does not get on any furniture unless you permit her to do so. Despite her medium-low energy level, Hattie is very playful with others dogs and would do best in a multi-dog home, because she does not like being alone. Hattie is one of those sweet dogs that automatically wins the hearts of everyone she meets and anyone would be lucky to have her be a part of their family!

For dogs, the adoption fee is normally $150. All dogs are up-to-date on all vaccinations and are spayed or neutered before they are adopted out. The adoptions process begins with the potential owner filling out an application; if that is approved, we will do a home visit to see where and how the dog will be living. We require that all dogs live indoors.
For cats, the adoption fee is normally $100. All cats are up-to-date on all vaccinations and are spayed or neutered before they are adopted out. The adoptions process begins with the potential owner filling out an application; if that is approved, we will do a home visit to see where and how the cat will be living.
