Story
Meet Maggy, the hilarious and playful girl with a heart of gold! This charming pooch is always up for a good time, especially when it involves her beloved toys – whether it's chasing balls, squeaking away at her favorite toys, or engaging in a spirited game of tug of war with her rope toys. Maggy takes her treats gently, showcasing her gentle nature. With her stout body and uniquely beautiful big ears, she's truly one of a kind. But what truly sets Maggy apart is her knack for communication – she's not afraid to make funny noises or adorable grunts to let you know exactly what's on her mind. If you're looking for a furry friend who will keep you entertained with her antics and bring endless joy into your life, Maggy is the perfect match for you! Maggy should do well in households with kids of all ages. We are unsure how she would do in a home with cats as we don't know if she has lived with any in the past. Maggy seems to be quite picky about her canine companions. So she requires a dog-to-dog meet before going into a home with another dog Maggy is a 6 year old pitbull terrier who is up to date on her vaccinations, microchipped, spayed and currently weighing 64lbs. ***If you are interested in adopting please start by filling out an application available on our website and email it to us. https://www.couleehumane.com/adopt-an-animal

Meet Autumn, the affectionate sweetheart who's convinced she's a lapdog despite her size! This lively pup adores showering her human companions with kisses and craves all the attention she can get. Autumn walks like a dream on a leash and is ready to accompany you on all your outdoor adventures, thanks to her high energy levels. She thrives on activities that keep her moving and would be the perfect companion for someone who loves to explore the great outdoors. Autumn is not just a bundle of energy; she's also a quick learner, already mastering commands like sit, shake, and down. She also takes treats very gently so no need to worry about your fingers! With her playful spirit and eager-to-please attitude, Autumn is sure to bring joy and laughter into any loving home. Autumn would do well in a home with children of all ages. We aren't sure how she is around cats as we don't know if she has lived with any in the past. She should do just fine in a household with other dogs given proper intros and time to adjust.

Story
Meet Bongo, a 2-year-old Boxer mix, who is looking for a forever home. He's a squeaky toy enthusiast and can't resist a good butt scratch! Ready to add some joy to your life? Apply today! Bongo is on the lookout for friends who match his playful vibe and respect his space. We do require a dog meet at the shelter before adoption. He should do well in a home with kids. He thrives with respectful play and having space to himself at times. Bongo is not a big fan of cats and would need a household that is cat free. Here's an update from Bongo's Foster Home: "We’ve learned that Bongo knows the commands for sit, down, come here, and of course, “no!”. He loves to play fetch and is working on the “drop it” command. He will also go in his kennel when asked and sleeps there through the night. He is fully house-trained and quickly got into a good bathroom routine in the yard. When guests visit, he’s excited but has good manners and does not jump up on people! He’s a big guy with a big heart, who will snuggle on the couch if you let him and learn to be your best dog buddy." ***If you are interested in adopting please start by filling out an application available on our website and email it to us. https://www.couleehumane.com/adopt-an-animal

Story
This cute guy is Draco! Draco loves being around people – he is very cuddly and loves to give hugs and receive hugs. He is a playful, young guy looking for an active family who can provide lots of mental stimuli and physical activity to keep him healthy and happy. Since Draco did come in as a stray, we are unsure if he is housetrained and suggest a consistent potty routine in his new home to help him be the most successful. We are unsure if Draco has ever lived with kids before. We do suggest he live with kiddos 10 years of age and older. He may do well with kids younger than that, it would all depend on how the meet goes. We are unsure if Draco has ever lived with cats. We suggest slow introductions to any resident cat. We do feel he should do well in a home with another dog as long as the dog can handle his energy level and playstyle. *** As of March 12th 2024, Draco has been with the shelter for over 9 weeks waiting for his forever family. He can be a bit unsure at first but has quickly become a staff favorite and has recently started going on days out with our volunteers. He has had a great time! Here is what our volunteers have to say about him: “We got to walk on a trail and in the city, rest on the deck, nap inside and eat ice cubes today. Draco is sweet, food-motivated, and people-motivated. He is unsure in new situations but conquers that fear with encouragement.” *** This handsome young guy is a 1 year old, Dogo Argentino mix who is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and heartworm negative. ***If you are interested in adopting please start by filling out an application available on our website and email it to us. https://www.couleehumane.com/adopt-an-animal
