Introducing Chance, a handsome 2-year-old Lab mix who's on the lookout for a specific home. If you're seeking a canine companion and happen to live in a rural environment, we may have the pup for you!Chance would be best suited as the only pet in the home and thrive in an environment with limited animals around, allowing him to focus on the bond he forms with his owner. He has a high prey drive His strong prey drive means he may have a keen interest in chasing smaller creatures, so when going out he should be on leash always, and on walks, be mindful he may try to chase all the squirrels!Chance has a knack for being an escape artist extraordinaire! He's always up for a little adventure, so he requires a secure space and monitoring. With some creativity and patience, you can help him channel his curiosity in a positive way.While he enjoys his human company, Chance prefers a home without young children. Teenagers who understand and respect his boundaries may be a better fit. Chance is a smart pup, and he's eager to learn and please. However, he has quite the personality that requires an experienced owner who can provide structured training and consistency. With the right guidance, Chance can shine!If you can check all his boxes, please reach out to us at BHS to give Chance.. a chance! He is ready to be out of the shelter environment and in a home! Be sure to ask a staff member about him at the front desk since he is not viewable in our adoption rooms- we would be happy to tell you all about him!

Introducing Bagheera, affectionately known as Baggie or Goofy Girl!She's a lively lady, brimming with enthusiasm, and here are some insights into her likesand dislikes. Bagheera loves the thrill of zoomies, relishing tasty snacks, frolicking in thesnow, and basking in the limelight as the center of attention. However, she's not so fondof birds and butterflies, sharing her treasures, or finding empty treat containers.If you're considering becoming Bagheera's forever companion, here's the ideal matchfor her:- A 'seasoned' owner: Bagheera tends to be protective of what she considers herpossessions, so an owner with extensive experience in managing resource guardingand working with dogs exhibiting behavioral quirks is a must. She's not suited forfirst-time dog owners.- A spacious home environment: This large and in-charge lady needs room to roam andstretch her legs.- Limited guests: Bagheera may need some time to warm up and adapt to new peopleand situations, so a home with fewer visitors would be best.- Daily Brain and Body exercise: Bagheera is brimming with energy, so be prepared foran active companion who will keep you on your toes!- No felines, canines, or tiny humans, please: Bagheera's ideal home doesn't includeother pets or small children.Bagheera is a fantastic, delightfully fun, and sweet girl who's on the lookout for her newbest friend. Could that friend be you? For any further inquiries or to meet Bagheera inperson, please don't hesitate to contact us here at BHS.

Dear Hoomans,I'm Bruno, but you can call me the "bestest boy." I've got a list of favorite things longerthan a sausage link, including parkour, pup cups, squeaky and stuffed toys, chimkennuggets, and basically every dog-friendly snack known to humanity. They say I'm thesmartest and most handsome boy in the whole wide world (or at least that's what theykeep telling me here).When the weather's fine, you'll find me splashing around in my doggy pool, playing arousing game of fetch with my beloved humans, and reveling in the joy of car rides.Now, if you're interested in having an audience with me, please have your people give ashout to my people. Oh, and don't forget to bring your most delectable snacks along!Toodles,BrunoBruno's journey began as a street dog, but now he's a spoiled pup looking for a ruralparadise with an experienced owner who's ready to embark on a mission of training anddedication to ensure he leads his best life. Bruno would thrive as the sole caninecompanion, and he's best suited for adult humans. Cats might be acceptable if theyhave ample space and proper introductions.Our dedicated staff has been working with Bruno since his arrival in September 2021.He's a blend of brawn and brains, always eager to showcase his impressive tricks andspins, and he's incredibly loyal to his humans. To form a lasting bond with this charminglad, multiple visits may be needed (by the way, he seems to have a preference for theladies).If you have any further inquiries or wish to meet this dashing fellow, please don'thesitate to contact BHS for more information!
