Jelly Belly 3Y 3M American Pit Bull Terrier mix Female Available

I'm a very outgoing girl on the search for my next great adventure! I am very active and will need a family dedicated to getting me the mental and physical stimulation that I need. Playing fetch is one of my all time favorite things to do! I could spend all day running around outside. I really enjoy playing outside with my human friends. Other dogs are not my favorite "people" and neither are cats, so I do need to be your one and only pet. But what's wrong with that? Children in my new home need to have experience with dogs and be in their upper teens. Because of my energy level and need for training, it would be best if my new owners had experience with my breed. I can't wait for you to stop by and maybe we can play a game of fetch?

Jemma 2Y 0M American Staffordshire Terrier mix Female Available

Are you looking for an active dog?  One that enjoys a good game of fetch or playing with other dogs?  Well look no further, you found me!  Since I've arrived at the shelter I have made a lot of new friends, both of the human and canine variety.  Once I'm tired out and have calmed down from playtime, I do love a good cuddle!  I will happily climb into your lap if you let me.  I am still working on my manners so my new family will have to take me to obedience classes.  Children in my new home need to be in their teens and have experience with dogs because even though I'm two, I still have a lot of puppy behaviors.  Stop by soon, I promise you won't find another 'jem' like me!  

Maxine 12Y 0M Jack Russell Terrier Female Available

By the way I look and act you would never guess I'm 12 years old. I'm very playful and I especially love soft, squeaky toys (though I'm sure you can tell by my picture). I am nervous around new people, and it takes me a while to get comfortable. Once I know you though I'm all about the attention. I do need to be the only pet in the home and children should be older and have experience with dogs. Stop by the shelter and say hi soon!

Pippy 1Y 1M Bull Terrier mix Female Available

My name is Pippy and I'm the fastest dog in town!  Well, there haven't been any official titles given, but I like to believe it's true.  I have a lot of energy and am looking for a family to help me harness it and teach me how to focus it in on something positive.  One thing I've heard about is agility training.  That sounds really fun and I think I could be really good at it!  Or maybe flyball training?  I bet that would be fun for us to learn together.  Because of all my energy, it would be best if children were in their teens and I cannot live with cats.  I also am not a fan of other dogs being in my face, so I would be happiest as the only dog.  If you are someone who likes the challenge of training dogs to do new things, come meet me soon!  I know we would have a lot of fun!

Priscilla 0Y 5M Labrador Retriever mix Female Adopted!

Priscilla here to tell you all about the wants and needs of a puppy.  First, I need a lot of time and attention.  Socialization is a key part in any puppies life.  Second, my family will have to be dedicated to making sure I get the proper training I need.  This includes both obedience training and house training.  Last, I'm a bit on the nervous side and will need a family that will be patient with me while I get more confident.  Because of this children in my new home should be at least 8 years old.  I get along with most other dogs and might be OK living with a cat as well. 

Ranger 3Y 0M Shepherd mix Male Available

Ranger here to tell you all about how awesome I am.  I absolutely LOVE tennis balls and could play fetch all day long if you let me.  I'll even drop the ball right into your hand to make it easier for you.  I'm very smart and already know a lot of commands like sit, down, and roll over and I would love for you teach me even more!  I really enjoy playing with other dogs and have made a lot of doggy friends at the shelter and am hoping to make more when I go to my new home.   I might even be able to live with a cat.  Children in my new home should be at least 8 years old and I cannot live in a home with shared walls (I can be vocal at times).  Don't hesitate to come meet me!

Victoria 0Y 5M Hound mix Female Available

I am just so excited at the thought of getting a home and a family to call my very own!  Just like any puppy, I'm very curious and active and will need a family that's able to keep up with me.  I also will definitely benefit from obedience training. Not only will it help me become a well-mannered dog, but it will help build the bond between me and my new family. I am also still learning to share my things, so it would be best if children in my new home were at least 8 years old and need to have experience with dogs. I might be able to live with another dog and maybe even a dog-savvy cat.  Stop by soon and say hi!

Winnie 7Y 0M Beagle / Sheltie mix Female Available

I'm a pretty laid back girl and am looking for a family to spend my golden years with.  Some words used to describe me are gentle, mellow, and friendly.  I get along with pretty much everyone I meet, including other dogs and cats.  I enjoy snuggling up with people and having my belly rubbed, I think I would be happy to do that all day long.  My previous home was too loud for my liking, so it would be best if my new home was on the quiet side.  I can live with children of almost any age, but it would be nice if they have had experience with dogs before because I can be a bit shy.  If a sweet, sensitive girl is who you're searching for, stop by and say hi soon!
