Story
Whoever is lucky enough to adopt Piper will be getting a real gem! She is so easy to fall in love with. Our foster caregiver reports that Piper is one of the most loving dogs they have ever met. Inside she is quite calm and cuddly but outside she loves to run, so a fenced yard is required. She leaps just like a deer and is so fun to watch. She loves to chase the ball and then jump on top of it - it's pretty adorable. Because she is still young, she still needs some time to realize her size and strength so must be supervised around small children and animals. But inside, when she is calm, she seems to do very well with children. She is fully potty trained and aims to please and listens well! She has also learned many commands like sit and shake. It is best not to use a crate with Piper because in her former life, it was reported that she was stuck in the crate for extended periods of time, and she gets rather panicky now if made to go in a crate. She seems to be past the puppy chewing stage and has a very soft mouth when taking treats/food. Piper would love, love, love to find a home with a doggie friend or two as she thrives when playing with her foster fur-siblings! Fill out an application to adopt and you can meet Piper. We promise you will fall in love quickly!

Story
Ducky is the happiest boy, always eager to make new friends anywhere he goes! This boy has an ambiguous past, having showed up on someones porch as a stray in January 2024. Ducky is on his way to mastering the art of potty training. Currently, he is comfortable in his crate as it is where he sleeps, eats, and spends his unsupervised time. Ducky is a curious, fearless boy who just wants to run and play in the yard, house, and is a cheerful boy on his walks. He walks very well on a leash and is on his way to being quite the Velcro dog. His ideal family would enjoy an active lifestyle and bring him on adventures! His foster family consists of two dogs, two cats, and two adult humans. He loves all of them dearly, although he is still learning to respect the boundaries of the cats. We would recommend Duckys forever home be cat-free; however, it could be possible with consistent, effective training. On the other hand, Ducky is amazing with other dogs! He is a sociable boy. However, despite being submissive by nature, Ducky can be quite demanding when he wants his foster siblings to play with him. He is still learning to respect their boundaries, too. He has not been tested with children or livestock. Because Ducky can be mouthy, we believe his best home would not have young children. Ducky would likely be fine with older children/teens (10+). Ducky does not have a high prey drive and has low reactivity when it comes to animals and strangers inside and outside of the home. He has a loud bark, so may not be suitable for apartment living. He uses his voice most when asking his foster siblings to play, or when his foster humans are leaving the house. Ducky has an incredibly sweet disposition and his favorite things to do include playing with a flirt pole in the yard, chasing balls, playing tug-o-war with his foster siblings, chewing on Benebones, and going for walks! Oh and eating food! Being a pup who is still learning to control his impulses, Ducky explores the world with his mouth. He can be quite mouthy, though this is a behavior he is learning to control! Ducky is eager to please and very intelligent! He is actively mastering sit, lie down, leave it, drop, and come. He continues to learn commands that help him develop structure and impulse control as well. At the end of the day, Ducky would do best in a home with experienced dog owners who could cultivate a safe, structured environment for him. His ideal family would be able to provide Ducky with consistent, gentle training in a way that best advocates for him, encouraging him to blossom into the best friend he wants to be!

Story
Hi! My name is Ri Ri. I am an affectionate, energetic and curious gal. I enjoy going for walks, eating yummy treats and getting lots of love. Shelter staff has noticed I have shown reactivity to other dogs and I did get into a scuffle with another dog before coming into the shelter so I will do best as the only dog in the home. Please ask staff if you have any other questions. I can`t wait to meet you :)
