Titan

   

Click on Picture for a Larger Image

Breed:   

Pitbull

Age:   

4 Years

Gender:   

Male

Comments:   

Titan has been at the shelter since October, he is a neutered Pit Bull Terrier. He is a friendly dog who knows how to sit, understands the word no and will come when called; he loves to play fetch. He likes his toys and doesn't want you to take them from him. It would be best to feed Titan in a quiet place and allow him time to eat without being disturbed. Stray dogs sometimes are afraid you will take their food, this is because they know what it is to be hungry. Because Titan is rough and destructive with his toys and quite rambunctious we think he would do best in a home with no children. Titan has a special angel who has paid his adoption fee.

Dacoma was surrendered to the shelter by his owner. We think he is a Husky - Shepherd mix around 6 years old. Dacoma is a large dog and is a friendly fellow. He will sit for treats and is friendly with cats. Dacoma has good manners on leash and walks nicely. He should have a fenced in yard and a lot of daily exercise.

Breed:   

Pitbull

Age:   

4 Years

Gender:   

Female

Comments:   

June is such a nice dog with a pleasant personality; she likes everyone she meets. We are so happy to be caring for her because she has had her share of trouble before coming to the shelter. June arrived with an injured leg and it appears she may have been caught in a trap. She is thin and must have been on her own for some time and not having luck finding food. She is eating well now and walking about without pain. You will know June when you see her; she puts her face as close to the cage door as possible in hopes of gaining your attention. We think she is about four years old and she is a Pit Bull. If you are looking for a gentle friend please meet June. We like to call her June Bug!

Gus was brought to the shelter by the Humane Officer;he is a Chihuahua about a year old. He is timid and shy being at the shelter but is friendly once he gets to know you. He seems friendly with other dogs and cats. Gus has never lived with children, we think he would do best in an adult only household. Gus should not be bothered while eating as he is protective of his food.

Collie Mix

Age:   

3 Years

Gender:   

Female

Comments:   

Pandi is a three year old Collie mix. She is loving and affectionate and gets very close with her owner. Pandi does not like sharing attention and would do best in a home with no children. She is house trained and will be very loyal to her person. She needs a home as an only pet and especially a home with no cats; she just does not care for them. Pandi would be a wonderful companion for a single person or a couple.

Hemi was given to the shelter by his owner because she could not afford to care for him. He is a two year old Lab Rottie mix that has lived outside. His owner reports that Hemi is afraid of men. He should be the only pet in the household as he has never lived with other animals and is not friendly towards them. It appears that Hemi is house trained.

Breed:   

Pitbull

Age:   

1 Year

Gender:   

Male

Comments:   

Cesar was once a stray and was taken in for several months by a good samaritan. His rescuer can not keep him and is hoping he will find a loving home as he is a big love bug. Cesar knows how to sit and shake, he understands the words come and no. He will play fetch and loves his toys. Cesar is friendly with most other dogs but is afraid and skittish around other Pit Bulls. We think Cesar is around one year old, he is friendly with children and he is learning about house training. Cesar must have a blanket to go to sleep, he likes to snuggle.

Shelby was found with Seymour and is also timid and nervous. She appears friendly and wants to make up she is just nervous at this time wondering why she is at the shelter.

Comments:   

Okay all you Lab lover out there, here is a nice dog. Zima was given to the shelter because her owner is relocating for their job and Zima can't go along. She is not so happy at the shelter as she has lived all her nine year in a home. She is spayed and house trained and friendly with other dogs. She has never lived with cats so her previous owner does not know how she would do with them. Like most Labs she is very friendly and gets along with children.

Tela

   

Click on Picture for a Larger Image

Breed:   

Husky/Shepherd Mix

Age:   

2.5 Years

Gender:   

Female

Comments:   

Tela was previously owned but there was tension between Tela and the other dog in the home. The owner tried to make it work for several months but the dogs just could not get along. The owner was very sad to give up this dog but wants Tela to have a happy life and home. While Tela does not get along with other dogs or cats she is nice with children. She is about two and a half years old and house trained. Tela does not like to be left alone and should be crate trained so she has a special safe place to be when her owners are not home. Her previous owner reports that she is a sweet and loving dog. We think an experienced dog owner would be best for Tela.

Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher

Age:   

9 Years

Gender:

Comments:   

Lielia was given to the shelter due to restrictions on the number of pets where her owner now lives. She is nine to ten years old so shelter life is an adjustment for her. Lielia is friendly with dogs, cats and children and she is house trained. We hope Lielia will find a new home quickly.

Female

Comments:   

Nelly is a shy but friendly little girl who is good with children.We don't have any information on how she gets along with other animals. Nelly is spayed. She will need to have chew toys as she does like to chew. Nelly would do well in a home with someone with a tender touch. Nelly knows how to sit, shake, down, come and like to play fetch.

Nugget

Click on Picture for a Larger Image

Breed:   

Chihuahua/Terrier Mix

Age:   

9 Years

Gender:   

Male

Comments:   

We feel sad for Nugget and his previous owner because the owner is moving to a nursing facility so their relationship must come to an end. He is a wonderful little fellow that is house trained and friendly with other dogs. Nugget has never lived with children so we think an adult only home or a home with older children would be best. He is friendly to older kids but young children scare him. Nugget is used to living with an older person and would be a great companion for a senior. He is reported to be very loving and he is nice with our staff.

Molly

   

Click on Picture for a Larger Image

Breed:   

Boxer

Age:   

5 Years

Gender:   

Female

Comments:   

Molly was previous owned and sadly family issues made it necessary for her to come to the shelter. Her previous owner could not devote enough attention to Molly due to helping a sick family member. This is a beautiful fawn spayed Boxer. Molly is five years old and is friendly with other dogs, gets along with cats and thinks kids are just fine. We hope her stay with us is short; it is difficult for previously owned dogs to adjust to shelter life.
