Breed:   

Shepherd/Boxer Mix

Age:   

2.5 Years

Gender:   

Male

Comments:   

Harley is a two and a half year mix who loves people. If you ask if he wants to go Bye Bye, he knows that means a ride in the car. He knows how to sit and shake. Harley wants to be a lap dog even though he is a bit big for that. He gets along with some dogs and cats too. Harley is house trained and neutered. He knows how to sit and down. We think Harley should be in a home with no children, he wants all the attention for himself.

Collie Mix

Age:   

5 Years

Gender:   

Male

Comments:   

Dozer was found not so far from the shelter on Husband road. We think he is about 5 or 6 years old. Dozer needs to be the only dog in the home as he does not care for other dogs. We don't know how he feels about cats. We would also like to place him in a home without children as Dozer does not seem to understand kids; he is friendly to adults.

Breed:   

Lab

Age:   

4 Years

Gender:   

Male

Comments:   

Cocoa lived peacefully in his family for four years until one of the children in his home tried to take his rawhide from him; he did not like that. However his previous family said he is friendly with other dogs, but not cats. They suggest that older children would be best or maybe a home with no kids. Cocoa is house trained and neutered. Like most Labs he loves to play fetch and chase birds. He also enjoys treats and taking naps. Recently Cocoa went to an adoption event and was a gentleman in every way. He has wonderful leash manners and rides quietly in the car. Cocoa was friendly to everyone that greeted him, including children. He was gentle and quiet and very patient. He was very content to just to hang out with everyone and welcomed pets and belly rubs. Cocoa knows how to sit and shake and takes treats gently.

Click on Picture for a Larger Image

Breed:   

Cocker Spaniel

Age:   

7 Years

Gender:   

Male

Comments:   

Buster was owned but was living in less than desirable conditions. He is a seven year old Cocker Spaniel. Buster is reported to be friendly with children but needs a home with no other dogs. He does not like other dogs and we have no information how he feels about cats. Buster is house trained. He is touchy about being touched near his rear end, we don't know why but respect that. He also may need a muzzle for vet care and grooming. This poor dog endured abusive treatment so we are looking for a home where the owner will be kind and patient with him. He needs to learn to trust people again.

Benji is a twelve year old Lab mix surrendered, along with his companion dog, Keiko, by their owner who is no longer capable of caring for them. It was sad for the dogs as well as the owner and difficult for older dogs to lose their home. These dogs were originally adopted from our shelter. Benji is neutered and knows how to sit, stay and shake. He finds it difficult to go up and down steps most likely due to arthritis.

Denton

Breed:   

Cattle Dog Mix

Age:   

2 Years

Gender:   

Male

Comments:   

Denton is one of a group of dogs living in a bad situation, they were thin and hungry. He is a mixed breed dog around two years old. Denton is friendly but should be fed in a quiet place and not bothered while he is eating. He can't help being protective of his food. He was hungry for so long he is afraid you may take his food from him. It is hard to hold this against him as he probably had to fight for whatever food he could get. Recently Denton went to an adoption event and was very friendly and social to the public, including children. He responds very well to kindness and positive attention. Denton was friendly to the other dogs at the event.

Kida is a one year old Cattle Dog mix that arrived with the other dogs because they were not getting the care they needed. Kida is protective of his food so he needs to be feed in a quiet place and not disturbed. When a dog is hungry for so long, when they get food their instinct is to protect it.

Pogo was found at the Somerset Plaza on the turnpike. We are so happy someone took the time to bring him to the shelter. He appears to be a Chihuahua mix. Pogo seems friendly and is neutered. He looks like he is about three years old. Pogo would be a good dog for someone that is looking for a companion and lap dog.

Big Boi is confused and not sure why he is now living at the shelter. Unfortunately for him, his owner moved and he could not go along. He is a one year old neutered mastiff.
