Story
My adoption fee has been sponsored by someone who loves me!I am a fun and happy dog that loves to meet new people! Once I meet new friends, I love to be petted! I love to chase critters outside and run around a backyard-- it's my favorite way to get my energy out! I have a big red ball I love and I will carry it in my mouth during walks. I love laying with my favorite people, whether it's watching TV on the couch or staying out in the sun while you do yard work. I don't like rain very much, but I am a very polite man and will let you clean my feet if you don't like muddy paws in your home!I am a quiet guy who is content to stay around you--I just want to be around my favorite people!Here's what I need in my new home: I would do best in a home with kids over age 6.I would like to meet any kids I might be living with.I need to meet any other dogs I might be living with.I would do best in a single-family home with fenced-in yard. No attached homes or apartments, please. Ask an adoption counselor for more information about my needs.  I'm a special placement dog. My adoption process may take a little longer while our behavior team reviews all applications to find the home and family that is the best fit for my needs.

Story
Hey there! Montel is the name and being a handsome adventure dog is the game. I'm kind of a big deal around the shelter, TBH. I have a fan club of friends who describe me as wicked smart, loyal and active. I love being with my people and learning new things. I know "sit", "down" and "speak" (I'm sure I'll figure out some more, too). See all these pictures of me out and about in the tall grass? I love getting out. Whether it's a game of fetch or hitting the trails, I'm your dog. (And you'll also see I'm a skilled "branch manager"... heh heh... a little doggo humor for you.)After I'm done playing and learning I am always down for a good snuggle session. I am the best mannered office mate, I will happily relax on a dog bed next to you while you go about your day. I am sensitive, affectionate and often check in with my people - I'm here for your physical and emotional well-being. My friends here tell me I make them feel special and loved every day!So if you're ready to make this a forever kind of thing, I could be your guy. If you think that we might be a match, reach out to my friends at the shelter and let's set something up. I'd love to meet you. Here's what I need in my new home: I would like to meet any kids I might be living with.I need to meet any other dogs I might be living with.I would do best in a home with kids over age 14.I need a yard with a 6 ft wood fence.I would do best in a single-family home. No attached homes or apartments, please. Ask an adoption counselor for more information about my needs. I'm sensitive about how and where I'm handled. I need a family who will respect my space.I'm a special placement dog. My adoption process may take a little longer while our behavior team reviews your application to see if we could be a good match!

Hey there! I'm Devon. My personality type is INTJ, so I am a bit of an introvert, however I am driven, a deep thinker, and very goal-oriented. I love being outside, taking in nature and meditating while the wind blows in my hair. I am a Scorpio, so I am a great secret keeper, I'm sensitive and introverted, and loyal to the people I know. If you think we could be a great match I would love to meet you!Here's what I need in my new home:  I would do best in a home with a fenced-in yard, so I can zoom once I get comfortable enough with you. I would like to go to a home with kids over the age of 14, as the youthful energy can be a bit much for me.I would appreciate a family that will give me my own space so I am able to decompress. Once I am comfortable I love to play and get my energy out with those who love me. While I need to be the only pet in the home, I can do walks with other doggy friends.I'm a special placement dog. My adoption process may take a little longer while our behavior team reviews all applications to find the home and family that is the best fit for my needs.

Story
Old fashioned gentleman looking for a life-partner to serenade, cherish and grow old with. I pride myself on being chivalrous and honorable while also remaining active, playful, and spontaneous. My best physical feature would be my smile and my goal would be to keep one on your face every single day. I enjoy nature and exploring "the path less traveled on", mindfulness activities that keep my brain happy, and being a culinary enthusiast. While seeking someone to share my life with, I also understand the importance of independence and I hold strong value in quality alone time and personal un-shared hobbies. I'd be honored to meet you and see if we are a match made in heaven.Here's what I need in my new home: I'm an active dog!

Hi! My name is Simba and I am a 4 year old male German Shephard. I am the sweetest boy who would love nothing more than to just lay next to you and get belly rubs all day. I am crate trained, potty trained, and I know basic commands like sit and shake. I have shown that I can be dog selective, and would do best with other low energy dogs in the home. I also love most treats, especially cheese!! :) Dogs like me tend to have some degree of separation anxiety, and would do well with someone who works from home. I also pull hard on leash, and would love a pretty harness to wear so that walking time is fun for both of us. If you are seeking a relaxed and easy-going friend to keep you company through your life, then I am the perfect dog for you. I can't wait to meet!

Story
My name is Speedy. My finder said I was okay with the men and women I met. I was not good with toddlers and babies so the shelter is recommending that if there are kids in my new home that they are at least 8 years old. I may be dog selective, so slow and careful introductions to new pets in the home are needed until my behavior is better known. I am probably not dog park material. I am treat motivated so I would love to work for my food. Shepherds like me tend to be very loyal companions and love to have a "job" to keep us occupied. Hide & seek with my people, going on sniffing adventures, cleaning up crumbs on the floor, helping pre-clean the dishes, learning tricks all sound like fun to me.
