Story
Ralphie is a loving sweet boy whose smile is the biggest in the county. As we are in the middle of some big changes we know Ralphie needs more attention than we can give right now and we are sadly unable to take him with us. We found him as a stray but he has been with us about 7 years. He is super mindful and very gentle around all ages. He is an amazing walking partner and he LOVES to play with a soccer ball.. in fact it's all he will play with. He is a bit afraid of storms but ok as long as he is with you. We truly want him to have room to play with a great family to love.

Story
Hi ! This is Kiara and we are looking for a new home for her. She is going to be 9 years old. She is very active and loves to play and run around. She is an inside dog, but she enjoys being outside during the day for a little bit. We have owned her since she was a puppy. Unfortunately, recently we have been travelling a lot and we don't think it's fair to have her traveling with us so much as she does better in a stable environment. She is a great dog and is easy to take care of. We love her and only want the best for her. Please reach out if you would like to meet her. Thank you !

Story
Chip is a young adult terrier mix, that has found himself in need of a new home. You see, he came to SPCHS when he was just a pup, was adopted quickly. Now, a little over 2 and a half years later, his adopters are both working, he's stuck in a their backyard 10-12 hours each workday and his pet parents don't feel that's fair to him. The reason he is stuck outside is because he's decided that it's fun to terrorize the family's cats when no one is looking, so he can not be left alone in the house with them. He also learned how to scale their 6-foot privacy fence -- they've been able to eliminate his escapes by installing an invisible fence wire at the top of their privacy fence. This keeps him contained, but with it getting colder outside -- well it's not the best for him, and he's definitely lonely! The good news is that he can be left alone in the house IF THERE ARE NO CATS. He doesn't destroy woodwork or furniture, and is a perfect gentleman. Chip is a little under 3 years old, neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on shots. He is high energy when outdoors, but inside is pretty relaxed. Chip is great around children -- however, he might be a bit too energetic to be with children under 3 or 4. He's very athletic and would do well with an active family in which someone will be home most of the time to supervise and play with him when he's outdoors. He is also a big time snuggler who wants to be as close to you as he can be -- ALL THE TIME. He’s very sweet and sensitive, and he’s definitely at his best when he has someone he loves with him. Let him sit with you on the couch or bed and he’s in heaven. He’s good on a leash and is crate trained. Chip needs his time outside and loves to run and play with other dogs, toys and best of all - interactive play with humans. Chip is very smart, sweet, affectionate, well behaved, fun, and happy boy. He loves to be involved in anything that we are doing. His happy place is sitting right beside you. He loves outdoor activities and being able to run full speed. He’s just a great dog -- he's not a barker or whiner.

Story
Flint is a young lab mix that has a gaze that will break your heart. We don't know all of what all he has been through, but his eyes tell us that he has had rough life so far, but now, after having some time to heal emotionally and physically in a loving foster home, he believes he's a lap dog! He is a very sweet dog, fine around cats. When he first came to us, he had several puncture wounds and scars, which lead us to believe he may have been used as a bait dog. His physical wounds are all healed now, and he's really starting to see that there is truly hope for a good life, He is up to date on vaccines, neutered and microchipped. Flint weighs 40 lbs. Flint does not like to be confined, is getting better about being crated, but really prefers to avoid crates. He has also masted house training!

Whiskey

Catahoula Leopard Dog Plott Hound

Story
This is Whiskey. He's a Catahoula Leopard Dog/Plott Hound with a little bit of lab thrown in for good measure. He was found wandering all alone at the tender age of 3 1/2 months old. The kind people that found him tried unsuccessfully to find his owner, so thinking that he must have been abandoned, brought him to us. He was adopted, then returned after 16 months, for reasons that sound like his only flaw is that he is a young, medium-high energy dog. He's now under just under 2 years old, as sweet as he can be, up to date on vaccines, neutered and microchipped. Whiskey loves to play, walks nicely on a leash, is crate trained, knows most of the basic obedience commands -- sit, lay down, shake, wait, place, leave-it and come. He needs an active family that will take him on long hikes, maybe also has a companion dog that will play run and chase in a fenced area, as he has boundless energy. Whiskey needs direction, and needs to know that he is not the boss of the house, or he WILL assume command! A trainer that worked with him said that he is one of the smartest dogs she has ever worked with! He is good with kids, in fact, is protective of them, and gets nervous if there is rough/rowdy play indoors where the kids might get hurt. (Or maybe he's jealous that he can't be rowdy in the house, too.)
