Story
Hero came to us after he was found by a local animal lover with 2 broken legs. This is a nice, friendly boy who is good with people, other dogs & cats. His approx. birth date is 01/01/18 and he currently weighs 41#. We did not see either parent and are guessing at breed based on physical attributes. We had both legs corrected at the price of $7000 and the results were great. The surgeon stated that the legs were broken most likely by a bat and that they were definitely broken at least 2 weeks apart. Someone did very bad things to this nice boy. Hero has been in foster and is House Trained. He has also graduated from basic obedience and is ready to move up to Dog 3 Obedience Class! Hero can be very possessive of his people and can be dog selective. We are recommending his as an only dog in an adult home. He has been vet. checked, neutered, micro chipped, is up to date on routine shots & wormings including rabies, and has been treated with flea & heart worm preventative per our protocol And heart worm tested negative.His adoption donation is $300 and needs to be cash, certified check, money order or a debit/credit card. There is a 3% processing fee when using a debit/credit card. We do not ship or transport.Please email for an application if you would like to provide this nice kid with his forever home. ##580807##

Story
Boomer is a people lover! He loves to snuggle right in next to you, if your looking for a best friend to stick by your side your search is over! He has a mellow personality and is pretty calm most of the time unless he sees a squirrel! He has caught many squirrels and truly enjoyed this hobby. He is also obsessed with the bubble machine and believes this toy is exclusively for him to chomp on all the bubbles. He is very good with kids as he currently has many kids of all ages surrounding him all day. He is also good with cats, although he loves a good chase every now and again. He has not been socialized around other dogs.. We are moving and he needs a loving home that can provide all the snuggles he needs.

Story
Unfortunately Peach's owner is no longer able to obtain housing that allows her breed. She is an incredibly friendly, cuddly girl but also has that classic pittbull stubbornness. She likes to chase the cats and try to play with them, but is always deterred by a bop on the nose from a kitty. Very food motivated. Still learning that trash and food on the counter and tables are not for her. She has falled slightly out of date on her vaccines and would need boosters and a checkup. She is clean and flea/tick treated. We recently learned that Peach suffered a bite on the neck while in the shelter prior to being adopted by her previous owner. She loves to play with other dogs but doesn't do well with dogs that nip, herd, or act aggressively. We suspect the bite may have contributed to this reaction. The local shelters are full and have recommended compassionate euthanasia if a new home can't be located. She's a sweet girl with a heart of gold but still learning to behave. Please save her.

Story
Leo is a 3 yr old terrier mix.  He weighs 88 lbs and is full of love and kisses.  He was  returned to us from being adopted as a puppy.  After living with a cat for 9 months, he decided he no longer liked the cat and has become dog selective.  Leo is  smart and listens very well.  He is house trained and doesn't need a crate.  Does good riding in the car.  Leo needs to get all the love and prefers home with no other animals.  Older kids would also be best as he doesn't know how big he really is.  Leo is slow to warm up, but with a little patience , he's all yours.  An experienced dog owner is required.  Please give this big guy a chance. He's a good boy just waiting for his forever home. If you are viewing this pet's profile on Petfinder or Adopt-a-Pet,.please use the application link at the bottom of the profile to apply.

Story
Chubs was born January 1, 2024. A New Years puppy! She is a happy, healthy puppy. She is extremely playful as most puppies. She weighs about 6 pounds now. I would anticipate she will weigh about 40 pounds when mature based on her parents. She crates with her mother when needed so is crate acclimated. As a pit bull, she will need a large secure area to play. She will be available to go home with someone March 25. I would be happy to bring her for a play date. Her mother, Mighty, is up for adoption as well if you are interested in both. Her name is Chubs because she looks chubby but when you pick her up, she is pure muscle. She will be kept up to date on required vaccinations.

Story
Bella is a little over 18 months old and is a sweet, happy dog that needs lots of love and a back yard to run and play. She loves to cuddle and play with our other dog. She is very very loyal to my wife and our home. She is great with our 4 grandkids, ages 1-6. Bella is house trained and will let you know when she needs to go outside. We have started traveling and would like to find her a home where she will be loved and taken good care of. She is an inside dog, but loves being outside in our fenced in backyard to lay in the grass or play. Bella will let you know if something or someone is outside, so would make a good watchdog. Give her love and she will 100% give it right back. No family tree papers.

Story
Hi, I'm Sasha. I am such a pretty girl. I am 52 pounds. I'm 4 years and 3 months old. I was lost by my owner and she looked for me quite often at the shelter. Someone found me, and didn't make a found report..The finder kept me and used me for puppies, and then discarded me. He tied me up to a pole. Someone posted a video of her being dumped on a local lost and found site and my owners recognized me and they were able to be reunited with me. A month later I got lost again and ended up at the shelter for the second time. The shelter does not know how I got loose. An officer put reclaim papers on my owners door, emailed and called her but she never came in to reclaim me. I am here for a new start. I'm a little bit rambunctious because I just want all of the love I can receive. If you sit down with me and pet me I calm down. I match energy. I'm a beautiful girl that really deserves a forever home. I really enjoy leash walks and honestly just good company. I am food motivated and know sit and lay down. I am good with children. I get along with other dogs The shelter got me spayed, and up to date on my vaccinations.

I'm just a petite little girl that came in to the shelter as a stray. I'm estimated to be one year and 30 pounds. I didn't even want to walk and the shelter staff carried me to the treatment room. I ate wet food for a few weeks until I got a dental to fix my teeth. I came in with a plastic bag wrapped around my teeth that pulled the roots out. I am a real rescue dog. I love to play with other dogs and I have been in the front office with the office cat Lobster multiple times. I love tennis balls and stuffed toys. I'm finally eating normal and I gained all of my weight! When I first came in you could see every bone in my body. I'm really looking forward to getting my forever home.
