Story
Hi there, my name is Sophie, and I'm a four year-old Terrier mix! I'm looking for a family to adopt me and give me a loving home. I had a home before coming to the shelter, but my person said that they had too many animals and could no longer care for me. So here I am, just waiting for you! I'm a sweet girl who gets along with other dogs, and I even know a few basic commands! I love running and playing, so a fenced-in yard would be great! I'm already spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated. Also, I have these pesky things called heartworms, but there are affordable treatment options available, so please don't let that be the reason that be the reason that you pass me up. I deserve a home and a second chance. If you can give me a loving, FOREVER home, please come by the shelter and meet me today!

Story
Hello, everyone! My name is Sophie, and I'm one year-old female mixed-breed pup! I had a home once before, but my yard was not fenced-in properly, and my friends and I kept getting out. We came to the shelter and now we are looking for new homes! I'm just the sweetest girl who always has a smile on my face, and I'm so happy, that I wiggle my whole body when you talk to me! I get along with other dogs, and would love to be your forever girl! Lots of toys, a comfy bed, and a fenced-in yard would be perfect for me. With my loving personality, anyone would be lucky to have me as their fur baby. Before I go home with you, I will be spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated. If you can give me a loving, FOREVER home, I sure would love to meet you!

Story
The name is Danny, but I'm affectionately known as little fox by my foster mom. Danny is a sweet pup who really loves people and other dogs. He is housebroken and has never had an accident in the house. He enjoys licking human fingers and showing affection any chance he gets. He is learning how to play with other dogs, as he just started going to doggy daycare and has the time of his life while playing. On several occasions at the park he's been asked if he's a fox (he's not). He sleeps in his crate or playpen without whining or barking, he's a real trooper. He's still teething and learning what's appropriate to chew on and how to play. Danny would do great in a home with another dog that he could play with non-stop or a home where every human wants to make him the center of their universe.
