Story
Meet Annenue! This adolescent black lab GSD mix came to the Shelter from a loving home but did not experience much of the world before coming to the Shelter. Things can be scary for her and while she mostly avoids, if people do not listen to her body language – she communicates her need for space more loudly. Beneath that hard shell, is a delicate Annenue waiting to shine. Annenue would thrive in a quiet home with a dog savvy adopter who will give her the time and patience to warm up. A home with another dog-savvy dog may be a fit for Annenue provided they meet at the Shelter prior to adoption. A home with kids is not recommended. Annenue’s adopters will be required to commit to force free training to increase her confidence and comfort with the world around her.

Story
WEIGHT: ~68lbs.Meet Sharpie- Sharpie has major ‘leading man' energy going on. He's dark and mysterious. He's got a serious face and a strong stoic figure. Like most leading men, Sharpie has been keeping his cards close, so we don't know a ton about his personality just yet. What we do know is that he is a sweet guy who does well on walks and is polite with volunteers and staff. Once you get him out of his kennel, he is full of excitement and tail wags. Given his size and strength, Sharpie is looking for an adopter that can handle him physically and is up for plenty of outdoors-y activities. Shelter staff feel confident that once placed in a home and given decompression time and a consistent routine, Sharpie's character will continue to develop and grow. So, are you looking for a new leading man in your life? If so, call our adoptions desk or feel free to stop by the shelter during Browsing Hours: Wed-Sun 11-5.

Story
I was the luckiest guy on the planet in early May 2020 when I showed up to a Texan animal shelter and found a confused, doe eyed angel, only officially up for adoption for about an hour, looking back at me. His origin story is unknown to me, and his age was predicted to be "about four months old." Making his birthday roughly Jan 1st of 2020. He is the all American sweetheart lab retriever that you'd see in your dreams. He's an incredibly sweet, energetic, playful, and sincere dog who wants nothing more than adventure, companionship, and love. He gets along typically very well with other dogs, and is extremely trainable. I am far from perfect, and this is why I must rehome him. His dental hygiene needs work and routine, and in general he needs someone mentally healthy and financially stable enough to properly take care of him. He's mostly caught up on shots, just missing one or two. He is a golden ray of light on this planet and you will be truly blessed if you are his new companion.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Cuddly PalRodrick is a 45lb Lab/Weimaraner mix. Rodrick is such a sweet pal of a dog! He loves playing with his 4-legged sister, watching sports while snuggling on the couch, taking walks in the neighborhood and local parks, long car rides, and hanging out while his foster dad works on his computer.   He has learned that "Sit" is a great default position and he is working on learning his name for recall as well as "Place" and "Down". Rodrick is an enthusiastic learner and shines as he strives to please his human friends!   We do not know why Rodrick landed in the shelter, but he is still learning to be trusting of the world and of strangers. Moments of chaos or surprising appearances of unknown people are very stressful for Rodrick. While on leash he is also unsure about other dogs, bicycles, skateboards or runners. He is working with his foster dad and a trainer to work on his reactivity and learn to trust new people and has made good progress in the past month.   Rodrick is seeking a home where there is some predictability and a calm environment. He connects deeply with a few people, and needs slow introductions to new people. SVPP is working with a trainer and helping Rodrick to learn that he can be safe when the unexpected happens. Continuing training support will be provided to his adopter. Prior to adoption, all dogs are spayed/neutered, tested for heartworm, vaccinated (including rabies, if age appropriate) and microchipped.   Adoption fees for dogs: http://www.svpetproject.org/info/adoption Stay up-to-date on what our dogs are up to by following us on Facebook!  https://www.facebook.com/svpetprojectVisit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.June 22, 2024, 8:51 pm
