Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Meet Duncan, a charming Bluetick Coonhound with a personality as vibrant as his spotted coat! Originally bred as hunting companions in the South, Duncan brings a touch of Southern charm to the North, where these intelligent pups are a rare find. Despite their hunting roots, Bluetick Coonhounds like Duncan excel as loyal companions, bringing joy and laughter to any family lucky enough to welcome them into their homes. With his inquisitive nature and keen sense of smell, Duncan is always on the lookout for new adventures. While he may occasionally get caught up in the excitement of a scent, ensuring he has a secure outdoor area allows him to explore safely, while giving you peace of mind. Although Duncan can be a bit anxious at times, a consistent routine of exercise and mental stimulation helps channel his energy in positive ways. His enthusiasm for morning and evening walks is contagious, making him the perfect motivator to kickstart your day or unwind after a long one. In a household, Duncan thrives as the center of attention, preferring to be the sole furry friend. But fear not, he's not one to pester you for early wake-up calls – Duncan is quite the snoozer and enjoys a leisurely sleep-in. On sunny days, you'll often find him basking in the warmth of the sun or lending a paw in the garden, eager to be your helper. And when the chill of winter sets in, Duncan's affectionate side shines through, seeking warmth and comfort under his favorite blanket. While he may not fit snugly into your lap, Duncan's presence is always felt, especially during movie nights when he eagerly awaits his share of popcorn, proving that even the biggest of dogs have a soft spot for snacks and quality time with their loved ones. Duncan is from a local shelter. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Hey there, I'm Domino Dancer, your friendly, energetic, new best friend. My foster mom told me to write a little bit about myself so here we go. I am the life of the party. I love people and dogs, wholeheartedly. My foster mom says that I am a lot, and I think she means my energy level. I love running and playing and jumping. I love toys. I am crate trained and generally quiet during my down time. I am potty trained too!  I adore other dogs, but many find my energy off putting. My play style varies between wrestling and playing chase and I can play for hours without getting tired enough to stop. I have met many new dog friends, lately and I have become better and better at playing, and even coexisting with my canine pals. I would really like a buddy in my forever homes.   I am just an earnest, loving, funny guy with plenty of energy. I love giving kisses and sitting on laps. I am looking for a forever home that will continue working with me and provide me outlets for my energy. I would love to try out agility, or even be your training buddy for a marathon. If you are looking for a handsome side kick, I could be your new bestie.    Here is a link to my YouTube playlist if you want to see in me in action: https://youtu.be/VvaHseuNF1s?si=oYH1v2ZkoU9ep9zF  **A generous supporter has covered Domino Dancer's adoption fee to help him find a loving home. ** Domino Dancer is from a local shelter.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Emmy has been with us since November and has gained so much confidence. Emmy LOVES to play with squeaky toys and has learned that it is okay to go up and down stairs. Emmy loves to go on walks but also loves to snuggle on the couch and take naps. She is an amazing, loving dog. If you ask her for a kiss she will give you one. She can be goofy at times; she puts her toys in her food bowl — she can’t decide if she should eat or play. This girl deserves a great home with lots of love.   She is an absolute dream and would make a great addition to any family! Click here to see a video of Emmy! Emmy is from a local impound.  If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Bruce is a cheerful dog who thrives on love and attention. He delights in being pet and cherishes his stuffed toys. Preferring the proximity of his foster family, he happily follows them around the house, providing quiet companionship. A crate is uncomfortable for Bruce but when left alone he has run of the house and does very well just lounging around on his comfy dog bed. Bruce thrives in the company of other dogs, finding joy in social interactions, though he doesn't always like to share with his canine companions.   Check out this   video of Bruce at the lake. Bruce is very loving and gentle with the adults and kids in his family but is very cautious with friends and visitors that come to the house. With slow introductions and positive reinforcement over time he has allowed others into his circle.  Before entering rescue, Bruce was a neglected and debilitated dog, grappling with various health issues such as Lyme disease, a thyroid disorder, skin allergies, infections, and a sinus condition with a chronic unexplained cough. Through dedicated treatment and care, he has shown positive responses, but managing his well-being requires medications on both a daily and as-needed basis. Additionally, Bruce faces mobility challenges due to hip issues in both legs and a torn ACL in his right hind leg. While corrective FHO surgery is not currently an option due to his size and how difficult his recovery would be, his quality of life is good but depends on limited yet regular physical activity, close monitoring, joint supplements, and prescribed pain management. Despite his physical limitations, Bruce adeptly uses a ramp for entering and exiting vehicles, finding joy in car ride adventures and short outings outdoors. He is a happy dog with a tail that is always wagging! Bruce is best suited to an environment with limited or no stairs due to his mobility challenges. Hard surface flooring is a challenge for him. Bruce is currently taking the following medications: carprofen, apoquel and levothyroxine. Ready to fall in love? Come and meet Bruce today! Bruce is from one of our northern reservation partners.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Meet Plum, who we affectionately refer to as Alice. Alice displays a gentle and sweet demeanor, and really enjoys children. If given the opportunity, she loves to snuggle in bed. She delights in showing affection by licking faces endlessly. She is generally quiet and composed once settled into her environment. Alice is bright and quick to learn. She is an athlete and enjoys bouncing around enthusiastically. She gets along with other dogs after being given the opportunity of slow introductions, but she doesn't like to share treats or food and those should be given to her individually.    She can have big feelings when it comes to loud vehicles, lawn mowers, and new dogs but with patience, time and training her reaction to those triggers should diminish over time. Want to learn more about Alice and see if she is your newest family member? Apply today!  Plum is from a local impound.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Hi, I’m Peaches! My foster also likes to call me Peach, Peachy, Princess Peach, Mama, and Angel Baby. I want to be your new best friend! I love being close to you and getting all the lovins! Along with being extremely sweet, I am also very playful! I love to play tug with toys and chase tennis balls around. I would be super happy with a fenced in yard to run around in, but my foster mom doesn’t have one and she takes me for lots of walks. I like my space from other dogs but after I adjust you can find me cuddled up next to them! My foster tells me all the time how pretty I am, how much of a sweet angel baby I am, and how I am such a good girl, so I get lots of treats! I am super funny when I play with my foster and I like it when they chase me, plus it makes them laugh! I’m working on meeting new people and will sometimes look to my foster family for approval. Sometimes I jump up, so I might need a little more training for things like that. I love naps, and my foster can leave me home for several hours and I respect her home to the fullest! I will tell you all about my day when you get home and I'll tell you when I have to go potty as well. Are you interested in being my new forever person?  Peaches is from a local owner surrender.
