Story
Hey there, I’m Lanie, and I became a part of the FDHS crew about 2 months ago. Let me tell you a bit about myself.I’m a pretty girl, inside and out. I’ve been living with other dogs, and it seems like I get along with them just fine. I’m also the tidy type – you won’t find a mess in my space.When it comes to two-legged folk, my affection knows no bounds! I’m always so happy to say hello or to give a spare kiss or two!As for my personality, I’ve got a lot of love to give. I'm a cuddle-bug at heart and love to spend my time cozied right up next to my loved ones. With the cold weather coming in, I'd love nothing more than a warm bed and someone to snuggle with. **Spayed, microchipped, heartworm negative, and UTD on vaccines & monthly prevention.

Story
Meet Princess Jasmine, an enchanting pup on a quest to find her forever home. Jasmine waltzed into our lives as a shy stray. Although she takes just a few beats to warm up, when she does, get ready for a symphony of sweetness and a whole lot of puppy kisses! She transforms from a timid lady to the most cuddly of companions. She's a younger girl that does not seem to had a ton of socialization in her short life. With some love and patience, she has a ton of potential to blossom into the friendly, out-going, happy girl we know that she can be. In the shelter, Jasmine has been pretty indifferent to the other dogs but has shown no signs of aggression whatsoever. We believe with slow and proper introductions, she could learn to live with some canine companions. Choosing Princess Jasmine means taking home perhaps the SWEETEST girl in the kennels. She promises to be a loyal best friend and offers unconditional love. Open your heart, open your home, and let Jasmine show you what a Good Girl truly is. ** Weighs about 80 lbs. Spayed, microchipped, heartworm negative, and up-to-date on vaccines & monthly prevention **

Story
This pretty babe is Bailey! Bailey and her buddy were found as strays and were never reclaimed by their owners. Bailey is a real head-turner with her gorgeous coat, perfectly sculpted and muscled body and the most precious little traingle ears that sit upon her head. She's absolutely stunning!When it comes to humans, Bailey loves EVERYONE! If you've got a face to lick, she's stealing some kisses. Bailey can be a little funny with toys sometimes, so she would likely do better in a home with older children. She has had no aversions to men or women. When it comes to other animals, Bailey is a dog that needs to be the only pet. She is VERY selective with other dogs and isn't afraid to stand up for herself and takes no gruff. We've noticed that she also has a really high prey drive, so a home with smaller animals is a definite no. To be honest, she really just wants to soak up all the love for herself. Bailey can jump incredibly high and has no problem scaling a six-foot fence. We have not tried her on a tie-out. She does great on leash and generally will stick right next to you. If she's going to be outside in a fence, just make sure she's supervised. This girl has so much love to give and we know she's going to do amazing in the right home. **Spayed, microchipped, heartworm negative, and UTD on vaccines & monthly prevention. Weighs approximately 60 pounds**

Story
🌟🎉 It’s time to shine the spotlight on our charming senior pup, Vince, a dashing 9-year-old gentleman with a heart of gold! 🐾Vince’s journey brought him to us initially as a stray, and later, his caring owner surrendered him when they could no longer provide for him. But fear not, because Vince is eagerly awaiting his moment in the limelight, yearning for the quiet comfort of a home to call his own.This distinguished fellow has a preference for a peaceful environment, making him the ideal companion for a retired individual or couple seeking the company of a well-behaved furry friend. Vince dreams of being the center of attention, so he would prefer to be the sole animal in your life.

He’s past all the “ruff” stuff and ready to embrace the joys of companionship.Vince’s love for exploration makes him a fantastic partner for someone with a securely fenced yard. However, be prepared to keep an eye on him, as he occasionally indulges in a bit of digging. With patience and guidance, this habit can be easily managed.Vince, our perfect gentleman, is poised to make someone’s life brighter and fuller. 🌟 Senior pups like him may not always be the first pick, but they possess a treasure trove of wonderful qualities and an abundance of love to share.

Story
This little honey is Tessa!Tessa came to us as a stray pretty recently and was never reclaimed by her humans. Now, Tessa is looking for love and would love to be in a home for the holidays.She is best described as a girl that just needs a little ""extra""...extra patience, cuddles, love and understanding. Tessa is a shy girl that takes time to open up to new faces. She's pretty scared here at the shelter but the time that we get one-on-one with her, we can see bits and pieces of her true personality shine through. Tessa is well-known at the shelter for her exceptional singing skills...depending on who you ask. We frequently hear her singing the doggie blues and she tends to get her friends to join in on the canine chorus. She's a beautiful girl with such a bright future ahead of her. We can't wait to see how she blossoms once she's in a loving, forever home.

Story
Meet our girl Sidney! Back in July, Sidney arrived at FDHS with a fancy pink pedicure and a harness, and we were certain her family would come for her. But days turned into weeks, and no one showed up. We tried following her microchip’s trail to another local humane society, but it led us to yet another dead end. Now, Sidney is ready for a fresh start in a loving home of her own.This goofy girl is a true clown at heart. She loves to play, especially with her big blue ball in the backyard – watching her in action is a guaranteed mood booster! Sidney is quite versatile; she does well in a fenced yard, on a tie-out, or on a leash. She also consistently keeps a clean kennel here at the shelter, leading us to believe that she’s house-broken.Sidney’s got a social side too! She gets along with most of the shelter dogs, although she isn’t a huuuuge fan of the more intense canines. When it comes to kids, she’s been nothing but sweet and friendly. We do not know how she feels about cats, but she would likely be okay! Sidney isn’t just a dog; she’s a source of entertainment and joy. With her goofy antics, she’ll keep her future adopters endlessly amused.Are you ready for Sidney to become a cherished member of your family? **Spayed, microchipped, heartworm negative, and UTD on vaccines & monthly prevention. Weighs approximately 72 pounds**
