Story
Meet Washington, the Lab mix who will steal your heart with his goofy grin and boundless love! Washington is a 2-year-old adult male who is full of life and energy. 🐾🐾 He may be a little shy at first, but once he warms up to you, he's your best friend for life. He's always happy 😃 to see you, whether you've been gone for five minutes or five hours. He loves to play with toys🧸 , go for walks, and cuddle on the couch. Washington can be a bit dominant with other dogs, so he's best suited for a home with either no other dogs or older, calmer dogs. He's good with most dogs once he gets to know them, but he does appreciate having some space to himself sometimes. Washington is also great with older children 👦. He's gentle and playful, and he loves to run around the backyard. He's not a good fit for homes with very young children, as he can be a bit too rambunctious for them. Overall, Washington is a loving, happy dog who would make a great addition to any family. He's smart, trainable, and always up for an adventure. If you're looking for a loyal companion who will make you laugh 😂 every day, Washington is the dog for you! Here are some of Washington's other qualities: * He is housebroken and crate-trained. * He is up-to-date on all of his vaccinations. * He is neutered. * He is microchipped. If you're interested in adopting Washington, please fill out an application. Washington is waiting for his forever home!

Delta is a loving and fun Shepherd Mix looking for her furever home. She is very energetic and loves to run and play. She does better with older children and gets along with most dogs. She is housebroken and crate trained. She is up to date on her vaccines, spayed, microchipped with lifetime monitoring, current on heartworm meds and flea meds. She would love an active family to keep her busy. She is up for adventures, hiking and exploring. She does need at least a 6' fenced in yard, so she can't jump over the fence.

Hello! I am rehoming Opie, she is turning 1 on Christmas day and is such a sweet, energetic girl. She has a ton of energy and love love loves to play with toys, work for treats and she loves her enrichment toys. Opie exhibits prey drive so she would not be best in a home with cats or other small pets but other than this, she is dog friendly. She is crate trained and still has a few accidents here and there if she isn’t being watched while playing. We hope to find a home for her that can give her space to run and can provide her with love, attention and the ability to keep her brain busy. My trainer is willing to help her forever home get set up for her and continue her training.

Story
Jelly Roll is a beautiful dog with clear, ghostly blue eyes and one that has a fleck of hazel. He has a black-and-white coat with some brindle in it. He came in as a stray, and there is evidence on the bottom of his neck of a tight or embedded collar at some point. He is friendly and sometimes will even lick your cheek when you least expect it after giving him some treats. He enjoys treats and also will flash a big goofy smile your way! Jelly Roll enjoys jogging around outdoors and will need space to burn off energy. He is quite active and likes exploring. He is also highly observant and likes to see what is going on and be in the know. Jelly Roll needs a strong and steady hand to keep up with him. He is a big boy and fast-paced on a leash, especially when he has been in the kennel environment and excited to get out. He knows where he wants to go and can't wait for a stroll! Jelly Roll is intelligent but still young so is trainable.. He gets very excited when he sees other dogs in the play yard but does not not bark at the other dogs near his kennel or in the play yard. He seemed to want to encourage them to come play with him. He was running up and down the fenceline with a much smaller medium-sized dog for a good bit, and both happily were enjoying the interaction. That said, behavior staff can advise you as to how Jelly Roll is on a daily basis with other dogs and playtime, as he may have been extra excited to get out and play on a sunny day. It is also recommended that there is a meet-and-greet to ensure he is a good fit with any other pets. Come see this handsome guy! His eyes are truly mesmerizing! Observations and photos by volunteer Krissy Blackwell 1-29-24 * Intake staff notes that the kind person who brought Jelly Roll in witnessed someone throwing him out of their truck while driving down the road in front of them! :/. In spite of this cruel treatment, Jelly Roll was super calm during intake and was not reactive with other dogs in the shelter when he was escorted back to his kennel where he at least could be safe! Poor guy is probably grateful to get the attention and care that he hasn't been given in his lifetime. Won't you be Jelly Roll's hero and give him a safe, secure and loving home that he deserves?! Rescue dogs give back a lot more than they receive, saving them is truly a heartwarming and rewarding experience.
