Story
Hello there, I'm Ford. I'm an adult dog who loves nothing more than a good game of fetch. I'm quite the social butterfly, always eager to make friends with my fellow canines. I've been told I'm a polite chap, always minding my manners. I did have some teeth extracted, so hard toys aren't really my thing. Soft toys and gentle games are more my speed. I'm a friendly soul, always up for a cuddle or a nice walk. Adopting me means endless love, laughter, and loyalty. I promise to be the best friend you've ever had.

Story
Hello there, I'm Chance! I'm a friendly chap, full of sweetness and energy. My smarts and curiosity keep me engaged with my surroundings. I love participating in enrichments; they're like puzzles for my active mind! However, I do prefer the company of adults. I find their calm demeanor comforting. Before I can join your family, a dog meet and greet is required. It's just a way to ensure we'll get along splendidly. I would also enjoy being fed separately or crated away from my siblings. I would be fond of a well structured and well managed household. Why should you adopt me? Well, I promise to bring joy, companionship, and a touch of adventure to your life. I'm ready to give you all the love I have. Let's make wonderful memories together!Chance is also eligible for foster care, sign up to foster here! https://forms.gle/oknYBjKJVYuQyb3D7

Hi, I'm Justin! I can be a bit shy at first (I mean who isn't), but once I open up I am the sweetest boy. I love attention, and could always go for some pets. I would love a family who allows me the time to open up, and gives me all the love and attention I could ask for!

Xo is the sweetest girl ever. She loves cuddling and is very affectionate. Unfortunately, she does not get along well with other dogs, she gets overstimulated easily. She has allergies and is on medication for it. She gets along with kids but, again, gets very overstimulated. She needs someone that is able to give her lots of time and love and that is able to help her expel some energy.

Story
CHARITY - HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS ADOPTION SPECIAL $75 Charity was at the shelter a couple of times and her owner always came to get her. This last time, they were told there would be additional fees to get her back because this was not her first time running loose, and she was unaltered. Her owner informed the shelter she did not make him enough money, (He bred her repeatedly), for her to be worth coming for and told them to just go ahead and kill her. :( Charity is a 6 year old, 58.6 pound, unaltered (not for long) American Staffordshire/English Bulldog mix that came in as a stray after she escaped her fence and had a scuffle with another dog. She is a very active, happy and wiggly girl who loves being around people and being pet! She is very reactive towards other dogs in her kennel, but seems to ignore them mostly when she is out of her kennel. She was current on her DAPPV and Bordetella Charity is enjoying life living with her foster. Right now, it's chill (no pun intended) and decompression time.
