Story
Piper is an absolute sweetheart...Inside her home. She lives with another dog and 2 cats. She will chase the cats but has never hurt them. We lived on a big piece of property where she could run. She did not like the neighbors dogs there but 1 of their dogs broke out of their fence and attacked her... We had to move and do not have property here. Our new neighbors have dogs and we cannot let piper out if they are out. They bark at her and set her off, she has broken her collar to go after them. I am not a strong pack leader and she needs room to run and a strong pack leader. I have failed her. She is such a sweet girl when she is inside with just us.

Story
Hi, I’m Spice, and I’m looking for my real forever family. This is my second time at MBR, and I was pretty confused when my family dropped me off. I was adopted 4 years ago, but recently returned through no fault of my own. Although I am 5 years old, I still act like a puppy because I was never properly trained. I promise I’m a good dog… I just need a patient family who will help me work on puppy behaviors like jumping and mouthing. In return, I will give you an endless amount of love for the rest of my life. I get really hyper when I’m taken out of my cage, but once I am on a leash, I behave well! I am potty trained, and will keep my crate clean as long as you take away my water bowl before bed. I get along with other dogs and have participated in playgroups with dogs my size. Will you give me a chance to be your new best friend? All dogs available for adoption are in foster homes. Please do not visit the location as it is a privately run boarding, training, and grooming facility. Meet and greets are scheduled by appointment only for approved adopters.

COME MEET ME AT TRACTOR SUPPLY in COLUMBIA STATION on SATURDAY, JULY 13 from 11 am - 2 pm. On site adoption is possible with a pre-approved application on file! 🐾 In a shelter nestled amidst whispering trees and gentle sunlight, there came into the world a tiny ball of fur. He was Solo, a name whispered with affection for the independence he already showed. From the outset, Solo's tale was one of warmth, love, and a yearning for companionship. 🐾 Born into the embrace of the shelter, Solo's days were filled with the gentle hum of caretakers and the soft patter of paws. He was a curious soul, his bright eyes filled with wonder at the world around him. But amidst his curiosity, Solo's heart yearned for something more—a connection, a bond that would last a lifetime. 🐾 As Solo grew, so did his love for the people who cared for him. He was a tiny bundle of affection, his tail wagging with joy at the sight of a friendly face. He adored cuddles, seeking comfort and warmth in the arms of those he loved. 🐾 Solo's favorite pastime was snuggling up close, whether it was on a soft lap or nestled next to a kind soul. He had a fondness for small, squeaky cat toys, finding joy in their simple pleasures. And while he enjoyed the freedom of an open space, he was content to stay close to those he cherished most. 🐾 His gentle nature and unwavering love endeared him to all who crossed his path. He was a friend to all—cats, dogs, and humans alike. His sharp puppy claws were a testament to his boundless energy and zest for life. 🐾 As the days turned into weeks and the weeks into months, Solo's spirit continued to shine bright. He was a beacon of hope and love in a world sometimes dark, a reminder that even in the midst of uncertainty, there was always room for kindness and compassion. 🐾 And so, dear reader, if you seek a loyal companion to share your days with, look no further than Solo. He is waiting, his heart open and his tail wagging, ready to embark on the greatest adventure of all—finding his forever home.

She greets everyone she meets with a wagging tail and a request for lots of pets! She enjoys going for walks and car rides, and she's especially fond of food and treats. While she enjoys playing with toys, Whitney's favorite pastime is snuggling up with you for some love and affection. She's not a fan of loud noises or screaming and prefers to hide. Whitney has a charming low rumble instead of barking. She's housebroken and comfortable in a crate.

Story
Hello! I'm roscoe, a 3 year old male whose ready for his forever home. I'm a very sweet and loving boy who loves cuddles and kisses. I really love any stuffed animal type of toy. I walk really well and listen to commands. I am very goofy and love to play. However I may need some time to decompress since I've been moved around a little. I might get confused. It will take a little time for me to warm up to the sweet side of me, so please be patient and give me a little space to adjust. Being an only dog to be spoiled would be best as well. I don't really like being petted by strangers, it scares me. But that's okay. I'm really worth the extra effort. I just need the right people to find me. Thank you for considering me to be part of your family!
