Story
Tonka is a Courtesy Listing and is not housed at the Animal Shelter. Please note that the City of Bloomington Animal Care & Control accepts no responsibility for this pet. Potential adopters are responsible for communicating directly with the pet's guardian. Tonka has been an indoor/outdoor pet. She loves to be outside most of the day, especially when it's a little cooler, and she like to come in at night. She likes to jump, climb, and dig! She has some patience for small children and other pets. She has previously asserted herself as the dominant with other dogs. She likes to heard things, cats ans chickens included. But has no idea what to do with them after she rounds them up. She's half beagle as well. Which is where her color comes from. She's about 8 years old and loves to lick, play fetch, and run! Does well on a leash when we have used them. If you are interested in Tonka please text or call: 317-753-2878. ***Please ignore the Apply to Adopt button for this pet & contact the owner directly***

Story
Ruby loves her people, other dogs and does well with cats, too. Ruby is a part of our Sit, Stay, Adopt program which means that she will have post adoption supports and her adoption fee is waived. Ruby is fearful of new situations/people and needs an owner who allows her to take things slowly and understands that some dogs need tools for success. Ruby's foster has nothing but terrific things to say about her and has also worked to have her muzzle trained. Utilizing a basket muzzle for Ruby will help her to grow her confidence safely in new places and in the vet office. We're excited for Ruby to continue to grow into a confident canine. Are you the person to help her get there?

Story
Piper is a Courtesy Listing and is not housed at the Animal Shelter. Please note that the City of Bloomington Animal Care & Control accepts no responsibility for this pet. Potential adopters are responsible for communicating directly with the pet's guardian.Piper is a great girl. She’s LOVES to cuddle and sleep in between your legs. She’s very anxious around new people men especially. She does great with our 2 other other dogs we have both a male and female. She does okay with cats we have an outside cat that she doesn’t really mess with however I’m not sure how she’d do with an inside cat. She does not do well with children at all which is why we need to rehome her. A meet and greet would be much appreciated to make sure she’s a good fit for you and your family.If you would like to inquire into adopting this pet, PLEASE CALL OR TEXT (812) 821-4480***Please ignore the Apply to Adopt button for this pet & contact the owner directly***

Story
Peach is a Courtesy Listing and is not housed at the Animal Shelter. Please note that the City of Bloomington Animal Care & Control accepts no responsibility for this pet. Potential adopters are responsible for communicating directly with the pet's guardian. Peach is a six month old puppy. She is good with kids ages 8+, other dogs, and some cats. Peach is very friendly and loving. She would love to go on hikes or walks and then snuggle on the couch and chew a bone. Peach can jump 4ft fences with no problem, so she will need a well fenced yard or daily walks to keep her well exercised. She is spayed and has her rabies vaccination. Peach is skittish around new people and needs time to warm up before she will become your best friend. If you are interested in Peach, please email: emilyhewitt83@gmail.com. ***Please ignore the Apply to Adopt button for this pet & contact the owner directly***

Marebelle

American Pit Bull Terrier

Female, 2 yrs
Bloomington, IN
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)

Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Marebelle is a Courtesy Listing and is not housed at the Animal Shelter. Please note that the City of Bloomington Animal Care & Control accepts no responsibility for this pet. Potential adopters are responsible for communicating directly with the pet's guardian.She is a very lovable dog with a lot of energy. She gets along well with the other dog in the apartment and leaves the cat alone for the most part. Sometimes she will sniff a little too much and the cat will have to set boundaries but Marbelle will back off when warned. She just needs a bigger home to live in with more people to keep her busy. A home with a fenced in yard would be ideal for her to run around and spend energy in.She can get too excited sometimes when playing and will begin humping the other dog or her bed. She is a very strong dog and will require patience from the next owner when going on walks. She likes to lead the way. If you are interested in Marebelle, please call or text: 812-340-3525. ***Please ignore the Apply to Adopt button for this pet & contact the owner directly***
