This smiley porkchop is Ellie. At a year old, she's the perfect blend of outdoor adventurer and complete couch potato. At home, Ellie is a total love bug who just wants to snuggle and relax, but take her outside and she's always game for a walk or a hike! Like most youngins, Ellie would benefit from more basic training to learn how to walk politely on leash... she just gets so excited! Ellie would prefer to be the only dog in the home - she wants all your attention and love! Her ideal home would be in a rural or suburban environment, with adults only, and little dog traffic.
This handsome man is Chucky. He loves to learn, especially if a little food is involved, and he will excel at any positive reinforcement training. His favorite past time is playing fetch in the yard and can play, play, play the day away. He is a star student when it comes to leash training and loves to sit on the bench and people watch. He doesn't like sharing his food, so he will need a family that is invested in managing and training him around meal time. Due to this, he is looking for a home without small children.
This is Julie. She is an active gal that loves to play fetch! She seems to find shelter life a bit overwhelming and is nervous to make new human friends, but once she does they are her new best buddy. Julie is an eager student, but like many class clowns, she has a way to go before becoming a graduate. It’s important to know that she will do anything for cheese (or treats) so we have a feeling that she’s going to be a star in any positive reinforcement based training classes. Her ideal family will help her build some confidence and give her the time she needs to feel comfortable. She is still a bit unsure of making canine friends, but with continued socialization, she may find her social circle.
This is Brooks. He is a wiggly, excited guy who loves going on walks and playing with other dogs. Despite Brooks’ fun loving personality, he finds transitions a bit scary so he needs a little extra time to adjust to new situations. Because of this, his ideal family will be a patient one who is excited to continue to work with him on training and building his confidence.
Meet Basil. He's 4 years old and is always ready to say hi to new people. Once he's introduced himself, Basil loves to play fetch with his new friends. On top of being both handsome and friendly, Basil is also house trained, crate trained, and knows basic commands...what a catch! Although a social butterfly with people, Basil prefers not to socialize with other dogs - he has no problem sharing the sidewalk with them however! Because he's an active dude, we think Basil would likely do well with people who enjoy the great outdoors. And no cat siblings please!
