JoJo - 13206
JoJo is a young, adult neutered male Chihuahua mix surrendered to the shelter in late September. When you meet JoJo you'd think he was still a puppy! He's SO loving and happy and just lives to snuggle and kiss and be joyful! He's just a wee bit shy when initially meeting new people but that goes away quickly once you give him a good scratch and some treats and a little TLC! JoJo sits nicely on command and loves his leash walks!
Sweetie - 13409a
Sweetie is an adult spayed female American Pit Bull Terrier mix found as a stray in late October.
Teagan - 13458
Teagan is a 9 year old spayed female Samoyed/Boxer mix surrendered to the shelter in November because the family was moving. Teagan has lived well with children and dogs and she is housebroken. She has never lived with cats. Her original family said she has a bad habit of eating stuffed toys! So no stuffed animals for this pup! Teagan is a very pretty, sweet girl so please stop by the shelter to meet her soon!
UPDATE: Teagan falls under our "Free to a Great Home" program because of her age! (application process still applies)
Inky - 13563
Inky is senior spayed female Lab mix brought to the shelter by authorities because her owner passed away very suddenly and tragically. Such a sad story. We found out that Inky and her owner were best of friends and they were all each other had in the whole world. Inky is such a friendly loving girl, a tiny bit submissive but still such a doll! She came to us with very little information so we are not sure how she is with dogs, cats or children, but from our experience with her so far, she loves everyone and eveything! Please stop in soon to meet this very sweet girl, she deserves a loving home!

Skip - 13510
Skip is a very sweet adult neutered male Jack Russell Terrier found as a stray in early November. Skip is our resident jumping bean! He's so adorable and happy and just loves his leash walks and spending snuggle time with our staff and volunteers! Skip gives the very best kisses around, and he likes to crawl on his belly during his walks... its so precious! Skip sits perfectly on command. He has typical happy, terrier energy, but will calm down very nicely when sitting with his people friends and getting nice back scratches. Skip will do best in a home without other dogs. Please take a moment to stop by and meet this very loving little boy!
Eela - 13305 ADOPTED
Eela is a fluffy 3 year old spayed female Cockapoo surrendered to the shelter in early October. Eela sits and lays down on command, is a funny, fluffy little girl and enjoys company! She will need grooming and regular brushing in her new home. We have trouble seeing her pretty eyes! Eela has lived nicely with dogs in her previous home. She may do best in a household without cats and with older children. She will need a little work on her housetraining skills, but she's young and we know with a little dedication, she'll impress us all! Eela is the happiest little girl and is just JOYFUL when taken out of her kennel for walks! Please stop by to meet Eela!
Patty - 13461 ADOPTED
Patty is an adult spayed female Chihuahua/Fox Terrier mix surrendered in early November. Patty is very sweet and friendly! She has lived nicely with dogs and cats and she's housebroken. She'll alert you when she has to go out and come in, too! What a good girl! Patty will do best in a home without small children.
Teddy - 13566 ADOPTED
Teddy is a senior neutered male Doberman / Shepherd mix surrendered to the shelter because his family was moving and unfortunately they couldn't take Teddy along with them. He is a tiny bit shy when meeting new people but does warm up very quickly and becomes such a sweet sweet boy! He does attach himself to people very easily and when he loves you, he is so loyal and snuggly! Teddy has lived nicely with cats and older children. He would like a home with no other dogs and no very small children. Teddy walks nicely on a leash and sits like a very good boy on command!
UPDATE: Teddy falls under our "Free to a Great Home" program because of his age! (application process still applies)
Winchester - 13562 ADOPTED
Winchester is a 1 year old neutered male Labrador Retriever surrendered to the shelter in mid November. Winchester is a typical happy-go-lucky energetic Lab! He is very social and playful, loves to give kisses and enjoys his leash walks. He will need a little work on his leash manners but he's so young, and very smart, we know he'll pick up the leash rules with a little training! Winchester sits and lays down like an absolute champion! He even will lay down without being prompted, just goes hand in hand with his sits! Winchester has lived nicely with children and dogs and he's housebroken. His previous owners mentioned he may do best without cats. He has a little separation anxiety so you'll see he's a bit anxious in his kennel, calling out for everyone that walks by, trying to get their attention! If you think our sweet Winchester might fit into your home, please stop by soon to meet him!
