Story
Meet Pikachu! Weight: 59 lbsWe don't even know where to start with this pup, Pikachu has made strides since coming to us in August as a stray. He's really learned how to get to know new staff and people quickly, he's slowly learning the outside world isn't so scary. We've learned Pikachu loves car rides, and pup cups! Pikachu is looking for an experienced dog handler home, one that has worked with a dog that is eager to learn and grow. Training must be a priority in his forever home to help Pika in the long run, and confidence building. His home should be prepared to likely have to come meet him a few times before he feels confident to go home. Pikachu recently went into foster with one of our staff members and here are some things we've learned: He absolutely needs another confident canine companion, he relies on other canines for emotional support, a lot. He is in foster with another playful male, and a female dog. He doesn't seem to mind the feline in home, but any odd movements the feline makes (jumping off of counters, loud thuds, moving cat trees) you can definitely tell he doesn't have a lot of experience with it. Pikachu doesn't necessarily need a fenced in yard, although his foster has one, because we, at the shelter have history of him being a fence jumper, the foster keeps him on a 40 foot long lead - where he can still have his freedom to run in the fenced in area but in the event of an emergency, there is a back up. If, no fenced in yard - being on a long lead/runner will be important.Pikachu does phenomenal in his crate, during the day he is crated next to his foster siblings, and appreciates it. At night, the crate is located next to the bed of his foster and that helps him feel like he has company. Pikachu relies heavily on companionship, and he is an excellent dog. Seeing how wonderful he's transitioned into his foster home, we have no doubt he'll be a great companion in his forever home. Please submit an application if you're interested in meeting Pikachu, and our foster or canine coordinator will reach out.

Introducing Bullet! This lovable hunk is ready to find his perfect match!Weight: 65 lbsBullet is a playful and affectionate young chap who thrives on attention, cuddles, and endless rounds of fetch. With a heart as big as his size, he'll shower his humans with kisses and attempt to snuggle his entire 70 lbs into your lap. Bullet thrives on routine and seeks a household where he can be surrounded by his people most of the time. While he doesn't mind meeting new faces, high foot traffic can sometimes make him a bit nervous, so a calm and quiet environment would be ideal.While Bullet isn't keen on feline friends, he absolutely adores other dogs and would benefit greatly from having a canine companion at home to boost his confidence and help him navigate the world. He's a fan of all types of toys, but squeaky tennis balls hold a special place in his heart! Bullet finds solace in his crate and sees it as his safe haven, making it a valuable tool for his forever family.Equipped with basic commands like sit, paw, and touch, Bullet is not only smart but also eager to learn more. He's in need of an active family who's ready to form a strong bond with an adolescent dog and foster a fulfilling relationship. This handsome gentleman is destined to become an exceptional companion for his forever family

Meet Sid! Weight: 57 lbsThis lovely guy is looking for his forever home, Sid is a great dog with a wonderful personality, he will surely win his family over in no time. But first, he asks that his family give him some time and patience while they get to know so he feels confident and comfortable enough to open up, This guy is very food motivated and can be won over with some yummy treats and a good round of fetch! Sid would do great with a well rounded social dog, we think this will help him navigate a new home/family more confidently, we'd want Sid to meet any potential canine siblings prior to going home. Sid would do best in a feline free home, and we believe kiddos 14+ would be best, and would want Sid to meet his whole family prior to going home. A lower foot traffic household would be best, if you think you're the home Sid is looking for please come in and meet him!

Meet Honey, Honey is about a year 1/2 old and is ready to find her forever home! Honey has quite the story, and is certainly ready to leave the past in the past, and move on. Honey LOVES to adventure, and go for lots of walks. She's also a big advocate for lots of play time, squeaky toys, rope toys, you name it - she's ready to play. Honey loves attention, but can sometimes be nervous when meeting new people, it will be important her home can allow her lots of time to decompress, and take some time to feel comfortable with everyone in the home, including any male figures in home. Honey has lived with other dogs before, and having a confident canine in home may help Honey feel comfortable, we would want Honey to meet any potential canine siblings prior to going home. Any dog-savvy feline friends in home may be okay too, Honey has never lived with cats but our adoption counselors would be happy to discuss slow, proper introductions in the home. We believe a home with no young kids would be best, 16+ and would want Honey to meet any potential teenage siblings prior to adoption.If you think you're home would be a good fit for miss Honey, please come in and meet her!

Meet Marley! Weight: 90 lbsMarley is looking for his forever home, specifically a home that has extra large breed experience! Marley is about 90 lbs at 8 months old and is expected to be over 100 full grown! Marley is a very smart, and confident dog. He knows sit, paw and down and is SO eager to learn more, this guy is super food motivated and with a really great, positive approach - he will be so much fun to train even further! Marley and our team here have been working on some of his greetings, he can become really vocal when meeting new people, and is learning four on the floor, and "touch" as an appropriate meet and greet for people he doesn't know. His family should understand, and be prepared to continue his socialization, this will be a key part of him being a successful, confident pup in the future. Marley is looking to meet female canine companions, and he will be required to do a meet and greet prior to going home. No feline friends for this guy, and we'd want him to meet all his kiddo siblings, or frequent flyer kiddo visitors prior to going home, 12+ for kids in home, please! Marley is available by appointment only, so please submit an application if you think he'd be a good addition to your home and our canine or behavior coordinator will be in touch with you to set up an appointment!
