Story
My name is Murphy and I am a gorgeous brindle boy.  Per my DNA test I'm 37% American pitbull terrier, 12% Australian cattle dog and 7% Labrador retriever. I am a good boy, sadly I've been at the shelter for a long time :( and here is what you need to know:  I need a home with a great leader who can continue my current routines, I'm kennel trained and muzzle trained if you live in an area where i need to wear a muzzle to go for walk. I know sit, down, wait, I love walks and hikes, car rides, belly rubs under the sun, eating ice, doing zoomies on the snow, and I love people!  I have a high prey drive so no small dogs or cats for me. I like children but I think it's best that I live with older ones as I might be a little too strong for them. If you think I can come to your house and show you what a good boy I am, please reach out and let's meet!   Thank you!!!  Love, Murphy.  Thanks to our amazing Angel Sponsors, our long term pups now come with reduced adoption fees, alleviating financial road blocks for some, and making it even easier to open your heart and home to a furry friend. The adoption fee is $100 plus tax and covers age appropriate vaccines, a microchip, and a spay/neuter and a home training session.  Applications are typically worked in time stamp order based on date/time of submission.  If you have other dogs in your home, they must all meet the potential adoptee.  It may save you a trip to bring them with you when you visit, if you are certain you want to adopt a new family member. *****We are currently operating by appointment only during the social distancing stage of quarantine.   If you want to meet this pet, or are interested in adopting, please submit an inquiry or email to tchspapillion@gmail.com. Someone from the rescue will contact you and/or your family and determine, on a broad level, whether you might be a fit for the animal.  If so, they will provide instructions for completing the application. Your application will be reviewed and you will be contacted to set up a time to meet at the shelter or the foster home.   The introduction between you and the pet will be supervised by one of the dog counselors or the foster.   If all goes well, you can adopt during the same visit.

Story
My story will break your heart but perhaps knowing some of the details would allow me to take credit for how far I've come in my healing journey.  I am 3 yrs and 3 mths old. My future is bright with a forever family who will show me the grace, love and consistency I need for success.  While I love to play with most other dogs, there are times when too much stimulation contributes to temporary insanity.  My humans will need to read my clues and advocate for my needs.  That may mean quiet time in a kennel or supervised couch snuggles.  My walking skills are improving remarkably but there are days when I'll need shorter, more frequent walks as opposed to one long walk. When my forever family establishes a consistent routine for me, kindly redirects my missteps and constantly rewards my wins,  my devotion, love and appreciation will overflow.  For more information, please email us at tchsPapillion@gmail.com or visit https://townandcountryhumanesociety.org/adopt/ Thanks to our amazing Angel Sponsors, our long term pups now come with reduced adoption fees, alleviating financial road blocks for some, and making it even easier to open your heart and home to a furry friend.

Story
Meet Cash, the 83-pound hunk of staffie mix – a living testament to the saying, "Big dogs, big hearts, bigger appetites." Cash is a master of basic commands, but occasionally practices selective hearing. The way to Cash’s attention is through his stomach - which makes the staff feel he is highly trainable. On walks, Cash is a sniffing Sherlock Holmes, investigating everything thoroughly, so it may be a zigzagging adventure until he has a chance for more training. And when it comes to wildlife, Cash's high prey drive transforms him into a canine Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Backyard Squirrel, so a good harness leash is recommended. Cash's quirks are balanced by moments of pure zen. Imagine quiet evenings with Cash, the cuddle aficionado, offering generous kisses and turning your downtime into the best part of the day.Stubborn at times, sure, but Cash's charm lies in his personality. He's not just a dog; he's a comedic companion, adding laughter and love to every day. Ready for a treat-filled, adventure-packed life? Adopt Cash – because life's better with an 83-pound bundle of joy.  For more information, visit https://townandcountryhumanesociety.org/ Thanks to our amazing Angel Sponsors, our long term pups now come with reduced adoption fees, alleviating financial road blocks for some, and making it even easier to open your heart and home to a furry friend.

Meet our adorable blue-eyed sweetheart, Tex! This charming boy, only 10 months old, is eagerly awaiting his forever family! Currently being fostered until he finds his perfect match, he's already mastered the art of potty training and kennel etiquette (sleeping a solid 10 hours!). With a repertoire of basic commands like sit, get it, and potty, he's a quick learner eagerly awaiting to add 'wait' and 'leave it' to his skill set! Living harmoniously with both large and small dogs, as well as feline friends, he's a true social butterfly. Plus, he adores his human siblings and thrives on their affection! Ideal for an active household, this pup loves to stay on the move! Whether it's playing with his beloved humans and canine companions, burning off energy with zoomies, or solving dog puzzles for meals, he's always up for an adventure. Yet, when it's time to unwind, there's nothing he enjoys more than snuggling up on your lap. Tex is believed to be a mix of Aussie and Blue Heeler, so his boundless energy and keen intellect make him a perfect candidate for agility training or scent work. If you're an active family with a yard or someone ready to take on the challenge of training him for his dream job, Tex is the ideal companion for you!

Story
Wyatt is a sweet 7 year old Hound mix. He loves walks and CUDDLES and loves being by your side all the time. He does struggle with some anxiety and can be distrustful of men at first but will eventually warm up to them. Wyatt came from a very anxious home and would thrive in a home that can help him at his speed. He loves all of the attention he can get, and would love a home where he can have a nightly cuddle session before bedtime. He would make the perfect office dog.  Wyatt isn't the biggest fan of going to the vet, so he is muzzle trained for his safety and the safety for the vet and their staff. You couldn't ask for a sweeter dog. The adoption fee is $275 and covers age appropriate vaccines, a microchip, and a spay/neuter. If you want to meet Wyatt, please send send an inquiry from Petfinder or send an email to email@townandcountryhumanesociety.org.   They will provide you the information to submit an application.   We are limiting adopters on the property to maintain social distancing so you will be invited to meet your match AFTER the application has been reviewed and approved.  At that time, you will be introduced to him by a one of our dog counselors.  They will help with ensuring he's the right pet for you.  If so, you will be invited to complete the adoption.    Applications are typically worked in time stamp order based on date/time of submission.  If you have other dogs in your home, they must all meet the potential adoptee prior to application submission.  It may save you a trip to bring them with you when you visit, if you are certain you want to adopt a new family member.
