Story
Chewie is approximately 18 months old, hypo-allergenic, LOVES to walk. Chewie is an obedient, loving, companion dog. He's smart and desires to please, and is very patient with dogs his own size. We have another dog who is 8 years old that has medical issues. Chewie needs supervision/training for interactions with larger dogs. He gave chase to our outdoor cats when he first arrived, but now he just sniffs them and walks past. He has had some exposure to 2 year old, 9 year old, and 14 year old boys with no problems. It is with great sadness, I feel I need to re-home Chewie due to a death in the family, and our older dog's medical issues are requiring substantial care (though stable). Chewie needs continued training for separation anxiety, but a bark collar and Prozac have given him much relief. Chewie is a sweet friend who is sure to melt your heart as he snuggles you!

Story
She was born in November 2022 and adopted from a shelter about a year ago. She is very energetic and would strive with someone who can let her out often, take her to dog parks, has a fenced in yard, etc. She is extremely loving and is looking for someone who can be her best friend! We would love to keep her, but baby number 4 is on the way and we want to rehome her to a family that can give her the attention she needs.

Story
Crus is a 4 year old male neutered American Pitbull. He is a very sweet boy and like to go for walks and sunbathe in the summer. He thinks he should be a lap dog and loves to cuddle up. He like to play fetch and know basic commands. He would do best as an only pet. Cruz does have environmental allergies so does require daily oral medication and his ears cleaned/medicated 3 times a week. His ears a deformed due to chronic ear infections not being treated. Cruz requires sedated nail trims done by a veterinarian. He does have some special needs, but he is totally worth it. He is a very loving and loyal dog.

Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Adoption Fee: $460, plus taxes Location: Foster Home Meet Gabby, she is a cattle dog mix who is extremely enthusiastic about life! This girl really loves her walks even though she came with very little experience with leash walking skills. In the beginning, she was all over the place and pulling with great gusto. Her foster family has tried a harness as well as a gentle leader and is making lots of progress with her! They are confident that a consistent training schedule will help her master her favorite activity! She had a very long ride up from Texas and at this point does not enjoy riding in the car, however with time and positive reinforcement, she could learn to love sticking her head out the window! Gabby is very smart and she will keep you on your toes. Since her foster family has been together she has learned sit, down, crawl and is working hard on stay and not jumping up. She maybe a little too rambunctious for younger children, but she would love to play with older kids! At this early stage in her training, she gets into mischief sometimes so her foster family is doing an amazing job with kennel training her when they leave the house. She is very playful, she loves her blue ball and is happy to bring it back to you but she is still working on learning to drop the ball after she returns with it. Gabby loves to run, run, and run! She would love you forever if you had a big backyard for her to frolic in! Gabby is a wonderful girl and loves her belly rubs, and any attention from you. She, in return, also loves to hug you! Gabby is about one year old, she is spayed, microchipped, and up to date with her vaccinations. If you are interested in meeting Gabby, please submit an application on Carver Scott Humane Society's website.

Story
Adoption Fee: $650, plus taxes Location: Foster Home My name's Petunia, aka Miss P, and I'm a whirlwind of snuggles and fun currently on the lookout for my forever humans! Here's what you can expect with me around: Energy levels that could power a small nation; I'm a playful pup with zoomies that would impress even the fastest cheetah (well, maybe not a cheetah, but I'm fast!). I'm constantly trying to keep up with my resident foster brother. I'm an instant mood booster and certified goofball. Prepare to be showered with kisses and joy every morning when I wake up, I am so excited to start my day! Living with me is like having your own personal comedian, guaranteed to bring out the laughter in any situation. I also have the ability to turn any soft item into a chew toy (whoops!). I'm still working on mastering "fetch," but for now, fuzzy things are my jam. Foster mom says I have a heart overflowing with puppy love: I'm ready to be your best friend, nap buddy, and chief adventure companion. I'm looking for: A human who enjoys walks, playtime, and endless puppy love. A home with a comfy bed (because even adventurers need their beauty sleep!). Someone who can teach me all sorts of cool tricks (pawsitive vibes only!). If you're looking for a furry friend to add some laughter and love to your life, then look no further! Petunia is about four months old, she is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on all her vaccinations. If you would like to meet Miss P, please submit an application on Carver Scott Humane Society's website to see if you would be a "pawfect" match!
