Story
Very sweet girl. Is mostly potty trained. Got her from a shelter a month ago but I got a new job and will be far too busy to give her the attention she deserves. She is very good with other animals and kids. Have not worked on training yet. We have been working on crate training her. She no longer barks at night. She's great on a leash but a little skittish of other dogs barking at her on walks. Definitely needs more time outside. She weighs in about 35lbs right now. She's estimated to be about 6-7 months old and is still growing. Will be a good family dog once she adjust to your household. She is very goofy and is still building muscle from being in a crate so stairs are a no go going down, but can go up them easily.

Story
My name is Ellie but hopefully you got that already. I come with a little bit of sas but I'm sure everybody does! I'm an adorable 2 year old pup who adores people. I LOVE cuddles, going to the dog park to play fetch, chasing squirrels from time to time. We can watch any kind of TV show together as well. My most favorite thing to do is chew the stuffy toys to sheds! I love tug of war the most if I'm being honest though! When you leave for work i may be worried and not want you to go but just know the second you walk through the door I'm going to need to be pet. I simply want my forever home and im hoping youre able to give that to me. LOVE, ELLIE :)

Scrappy is one awesome dog! He came to Oasis after his owner could no longer care for him. Scrappy had been tied out to a dog house outside his short life by his previous owner. He is hesitant with people, but will warm up when he knows they are ok. If you are interested in meeting Scrappy, please fill out an application that you will find on out website: Scrappy also asks that a fenced in yard would be wonderful. He would like to never be tied up again. oasisanimalshelter.net

Story
Skye is not only beautiful, but he is a great dog. He completed a training program and was in a foster home for a short time. Skye is a very smart dog and is looking for an active family to adopt, and a fenced in yard would be necessary. Skye would not be a good fit for a first time dog owner. Don't miss out on this great dog. By the way, Skye loves taking baths, with or without you in the tub!!!!
