Story
Loves food with chicken and salmon He prefers kibble size food or soft food bigger kibbles he does not do well with table food unless it is chicken and rice loves to run around the house in circles as if he was outside maybe because I do not have a fence for him to do that activity outside. Indoors pet he cries when left outside too long. Loving pet to have he is crate trained and house broken will stand at the door to go potty and make a loud cry if he needs to go outside to poop. Have had him since he was 6 weeks old he was hyper for me to put in my small cat to take to the vet since he was smaller but he is regularly bath which he does well with little to no shedding. Spoiled pup so a little tender love and care plus a little more training and activities he will be the best pet ever

Story
My partner and I recently found him in our neighborhood out in a cold rain. We were able to get him in our car and he stayed at our house overnight. He seemed like a sweet pup. The sheriff’s dept was able to take him to APS the next day. We had wanted to adopt him but were denied permission by our landlord. APS informed us that he had exhibited aggressive behavior and was scheduled to be euthanized. We were surprised to hear this as he was really friendly and well-behaved with us, so we have scheduled to adopt him to avoid his euthanasia. We are trying our best to find a way to ensure his well being

Royalty comes from a hard life, before we got her she was abused, she’s very shy for that reason but she opens up once you show her you care, i ask anyone interested in royalty to please take care of her for me and to show as much love to her as she would to you, she’s an amazing dog, loves to play, loves cuddles and most importantly is very friendly, she’s also potty trained so she will adjust quickly.

Story
Griffin is a charming young pup with a delightful personality! Smart, friendly and playful, he adores all toys, and is always up for an adventure. Eager to please and motivated by tasty treats, Griffin is attentive when practicing basic commands. He has mastered a beautiful "sit" and "down," and he is fully crate-trained. After a busy day of sniffing and playing with his foster sisters, he's happy to rest in his crate with a tasty peanut butter kong, and he sleeps through the night in his crate. Since Griffin is very curious and wants to learn about everything, crating when unattended remains the safest option for this inquisitive guy. Griffin would benefit from continued training on a leash. He pulls because he is very excited to see everything he can as he walks. He barks and pulls when passing people and dogs but is working on keeping eye contact with his walker. At this time Griffin will require a detached home with a fenced yard. Griffin's current favorite outside play is anything involving a ball! He LOVES a super-bouncy ball and returns it for another throw. He also enjoys sniffing for treats as we walk around the fenced yard; lounging in the sun and chewing on a ball is a great way for him to spend an afternoon. He has interacted with children but is jumpy with the excitement of meeting new friends, so for now, older children would be the best fit for him. Griffin likes other dogs but requires a slow introduction. Once he's comfortable with new dog friends, all's well and he follows their cues. When he's not busy playing or training, Griffin wants nothing more than pets and snuggles. A lovable cuddle bug, he curls up right next to you once he's worn himself out. Griffin will thrive in an environment that will keep him active, engaged, and supervised. Smart, spunky Griffin will only continue to blossom in a patient and loving forever home! Could that be you? HEALTH Griffin is up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, heartworm negative, and neutered. HISTORY Griffin came from a local shelter.

Story
Meet Shay! The most adorable, happy "squishball" as her foster mom calls her! Shay is the full package. She is crate-trained, potty-trained, and has excellent indoor manners. Her favorite hobbies are playing ball, going for walks, and just running around her yard with her foster family. Shay absolutely loves people and has never met a stranger! She is the perfect balance of happy energy and a couch potato. Her foster mom says that Shay is very respectful in her interactions with people and is always excited to say hello, but will immediately sit at your feet if affection is offered. She is quickly learning how to sit, wait, and come, and she has learned how to walk nicely on a leash and is always up for an outdoor adventure. Shay is always happy with getting her foster mom's attention and just wants to find a forever family where she can be everyone's best friend. As if she wasn't special enough, she also has one blue eye and one brown eye! She has lots of love to give and can't wait to meet you!

My adoption fee has been fully sponsored. Adopt me and pay $0.00!!!Hello all!! I was very timid and shy when I arrived at the shelter. But I have warmed up and become more loving & confident with the help of consistent handling by my compassionate caretakers. I have been doing well walking on leash and I`m attentive to commands. I`m such a wonderful girl, I have quickly won the hearts of staff and volunteers at OCAS. I will need someone who is willing to go slow with me and show me that life doesn`t have to be scary. I may benefit from being the only dog in the home as I have gotten into scuffles with other dogs in the past. I would also prefer a quiet and patient home without any younger children (I have done best around older teenagers), that will allow me to really blossom! I can be reactive to other dogs on walks but I love treats and learn very quickly so training with me will be a blast :) If you have any quesitons about me, please ask to speak with staff.

My adoption fee has been fully sponsored. Adopt me and pay $0.00!!!My name is Gracie—and I am well-named! My previous owner reported that I was affectionate, housetrained, and good with kids! Shelter staff have found me to be sweet, attentive, and delighted about walks and treats. I have a steady, sweet personality. I was surrendered to the shelter because I was not getting along with the other female dog in the home. I may be dog selective (meaning I like some other dogs, and don`t get along with others) or I may do best as an only dog. Slow introductions with any other pets are recommended. Please think about the positives in Gracie and give her a chance!Gracie went on an adventure away from the shelter, and her adventure buddy had wonderful things to say about her:`Gracie hopped right into the car to sit quietly in the backseat for the drive to Blackwood Farm Park. As we went on a 3-mile hike through the meadows at the park, Gracie was very good on the leash and did not pull. She clearly loved being out on the trails and checking out the new scents. She had such a happy attitude it made the hike even more enjoyable for me and my husband. There were other people and dogs at the park and it was nice to see that Gracie was not reactive to any of the dogs. She just watched them quietly for a few moments before turning her attention to something else. Gracie was fun to be around and an excellent companion.` I am currently available in my foster home.

My adoption fee has been partially sponsored. Adopt me and pay only $50.00!Hey there, my name is Teddy! I am a sweet and energetic boy looking for his forever home. I love treats, meeting new people, and going on walks! I arrived at the shelter as a stray, so not much previous infomation is known about me. please ask staff if you have any questions.Our sweet boy Teddy went on a field trip and here are the lovely things his adventure buddies had to say about him:`We really enjoyed hiking at Blackwood Farm Park with Teddy. He was a little shy when we first met him, but then he quickly showed his super sweet and affectionate personality. He seemed to especially like my husband, and wanted to rest his head against him whenever we stopped for a break. We got the feeling that he will really blossom when he finds his forever home. He did pull on the leash, so he could use some leash training. We both think Teddy will make a great addition to some lucky family.`Notes from Teddy`s foster family:`Teddy is a really great dog and we strongly believe once someone decides to come meet him they`ll fall in love. He`s learning how to be affectionate, and plays very well with our dog. They take breaks, he stays bouncy, and takes turns chasing.His biggest struggle is just getting into things or chewing. He does understand where the toy bin is, and we can pretty consistently re-direct him now. However, we still need to monitor him, but we have seen growth and give him more freedom to lounge on the couch and outside.He`s taken to a leash extremely well, only bunnies and cats completely steal his attention. He was nervous around cars initially, but we`ve managed to pair with treats and now he looks to us when they pass :) Additionally, he`s totally unreactive to anything that we pass. Whether it be a reactive dog behind a fence or one we`re passing. He tends to just pull away and to the side or look to us for a treat. Really good default leash behavior :) Mild interest in bikes, strollers, etc but easily re-directed when prompted for attention. He is still a countertop surfer so he can use more help and training with that.He is such a great dog. Loves to play, will lay & cuddle. Agreeable for going to his ke
