Story
Hi there, I'm Jack! I'm a 1 year old, 10lbs., neutered male Terrier mix.  I'm an energetic, outgoing and friendly boy that loves to meet humans and dog alike. I love running all about and playing with soft toys. Playing with other dogs that can match my exuberant, energetic personality is always best as I can overwhelm calmer or shyer dogs. I am an all around happy boy.

Right now, I'm a 7 month old, neutered male mixed pup that might be Pitbull/Mastiff mix. when I'm all grown up I could be between 55 to 65 lbs. I'm a happy, energetic little man that's still just a puppy so I need a new family ready to help me with my manners and doggy socialization. I have loads of energy to spare and love to play.

Story
Hi there! My name is Arlo and I'm a 5 year old, neutered male pit bull that currently weighs about 44lbs.  I'm a timid boy that's still learning about the great big world.  I would do best with a family that has experience with dogs that are still working on impulse control and sharing.  I hope to be a proper gentleman so I'll need plenty of training.  I'm a sweet boy that already knows sit and absolutely adores all the treats which will definitely help with my continued training.  P.S. Kongs are the best thing in the world, especially if they have some peanut butter in them!  I love the spotlight so I prefer to be the only pet in the household. For more information about me, just ask Customer Service about Arlo!  ID# A940198 Drop-In hours for Same Day Adoptions:  11 am – 5 pm, 7 days a week  Adoptions will be done on a first come, first served basis. Please note for walk-ins, if the animal you are interested in has other appointments, he/she may not be available for you to meet.

Story
Hiya I'm Leaf! I am a 8 month old, neutered male terrier mix who currently weighs around 22 pounds. I am an energetic little guy who can't get enough love from my favorite people! One of my favorite activities is to run zoomies so be prepared to be entertained by my antics- I am speedy! I still need to learn a lot about the world, so having a family who is excited to help me learn how to be the best dog ever is ideal. I would do best in a home that's had dogs before, and ready to handle my overly excitable nature. Do I sound like I might be your new best friend?

Awooooo! I'm Pepper! I'm a 3 month old, spayed female, Pitbull mix. I'm a growing baby who may grow to be around 60-70 pounds but right now just 18 pounds. I am 100% a wiggly puppy. I love to play and explore! I love chasing stuffed toys; I get so excited when someone plays my favorite game with me! I'm also a very affectionate little baby who loves to cuddle. When I'm sleepy, I prefer to be wrapped up in warm blankets. I would love to find a family that is ready for a high energy, silly puppy. My ideal family will spoil me with love and kisses but also help me become a perfect member of society through puppy training. I can't wait to meet you!
