Story
Say hello to the big, beautiful Bo Duke! This eight-year-old charmer has the looks and pawsonality of your new best friend! Bo Duke came to the Kentucky Humane Society when his owner fell ill. He perfected his loyalty in his previous home and is quick to make friends. Other dogs? No problem! Cats, though, Bo Duke is not a fan of. But he promises to give his new family nearly 100 pounds of pure love in return! He is neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated.I came to the Kentucky Humane Society because my owner could no longer care for me. I miss being in a home and have a lot of love to give. I will be available for adoption on May 11th at Hammer's Lou Adopts! Join us from 12-4 pm at The Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center for a MEGA adoption event! My adoption fee is waived through Bissell's Empty the Shelter promotion! License fee still applies for Jefferson County residents.

Story
Hi there! My name is Sweet Tart, and I'm looking for my paw-fect family. Could that be with you? To tell you more about myself, I'm four years old and came to the Kentucky Humane Society when some kind humans found me wandering the streets. I was really nervous being out by myself so I am relieved to finally be in a safe place. The staff at KHS are still learning all about me, but so far have said that I am living up to my name and I'm sweeter than sugar. The staff has given me some really cool toys, and it turns out that I love to play! I'm also a super big fan of taking long naps in warm sunny spots, especially if there is a squishy bed for me to lay in. I can be a little hesitant when meeting new people, but once I warm up to you I am your very best friend! I'm not really sure how I feel about feline or canine friends just yet. If you're interested in adding an adorable, happy, lovable pup to your family, come meet me today! I'm spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. All I'm missing is you!I spent some time on the road, but a kind person took me to the Kentucky Humane Society. I am finished with my rambling ways and am ready to find a loving home.

Story
*****IF INTERESTED EMAIL derbycitydogrescue@gmail.com*****Hello, good people! My name is Niko and I am a hunka, hunka, burning love looking for that special someone/family to call my own!I'm roundabout 11 yrs old and as you can see from my pics, I'm a pretty handsome fella and a bit of a ladies man. I really love to snuggle up with you and give out some kisses.I also love a good run around the yard and to play with my ropes, old footballs, and really any kind of fun with tough toys!Now I do like to be the king of my castle, so that I can be the center of your attention and not have to share my toys or love with other animals. I might be able to tolerate a laid back kind of girl, but I'd need some introductions first to be sure.I really like to please my people so learning new tricks and commands is always a fun time for me. I've learned several over the years including sit, stay, paw, and down but I might need a bit of a refresher. I'm a pretty strong guy so a nice harness is a good idea for walks (WHICH I LOVE!).Niko is up to date on shots, neutered, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $200.

Some say I like treats a bit too much, but is there such a thing?I really like to meet new people and make people friends really easily. I even like the small peoples. I'm not too much on the furry friends though - I like to the one getting all the love.So, do you know anyone that is looking for a little slice of heaven like me?Cheeto is house trained, is up to date on shots, spayed, and microchipped.

Story
Persimmon is looking for an adoptive home who is willing to work with her on becoming a respectable member of dog society!Persimmon came to us in very bad shape, with almost no fear and sores all over her body from demodex likely caused by extreme neglect. She was very ill for a long period of time but has almost completely recovered, with some occasional skin flareups. Persimmon is, as far as we can tell, about 3 years old, and seems to be some kind of pit/boxer mix. She’s crate trained, has a solid sit, and some basic leash skills (that at this point aren’t solid when there are any distractions).She is dog and cat reactive, but will move past quiet animals with consistent reinforcement/distraction. She needs to be crated away from other animals. We do believe that with slow introductions, positive training, and patience, she may be able to interact appropriately with other dogs.She is an incredibly happy dog who will play for long periods of time, whether she’s on her own or not. She’s excited about learning new things (and good at it), but has a harder time adjusting in environments where there’s too much going on.Persimmon is, at her core, a super sweet, funny, and playful dog with a terrific personality and will light up any room she is in.If you would be interested in adopting Persimmon, complete our application at www.derbycitydogrescue.org/adoption-application.html
