Chocky is 6 months old and absolutely LOVES people, affection and snuggles. Laps are her favorite place to sit, and when she sees new people her entire body wiggles with excitement. She has bursts of puppy energy for about 10 minutes, and then she’s ready to loaf! And while very social with humans, Chocky finds other dogs extremely stressful and is looking for a home where she will be the only dog, and where she won’t be exposed to other dogs regularly. Her new family will, however, need to devote plenty of time to help her learn that dogs are not scary, ideally by working with the right behavior professional to do so. We have begun doing some of this work here at the shelter, and we’re really happy with the progress we’ve seen. The behavior team will be excited to show potential adopters the work they have done with her so far, so they can help adopters to continue that training process in her new home. Chocky is incredibly smart, and learns new things quickly, and we’re eager for her to continue learning.
Say hi to Brady! This big enthusiastic boy is ready for a life of adventure with his new family. He's a smart and quirky dude that enjoys being around people and loves to train when treats are involved. This good boy could play with his favorite stuffies all day if you let him. He will need some time and patience adjusting to a new environment and meeting new people, so adopters should be prepared to work slowly with him and of course provide lots of treats! Due to his size and energy levels, any kids in the home should meet him before adoption. He has enjoyed meeting and playing with other dogs here at the shelter but can be a little awkward at first and should meet potential canine siblings before going home.
This sweet girl is Stormy, and she's ready to make all your cloudy days go away. This gentle pittie finds comfort hanging with her favorite people, and quite frankly doesn't understand personal space cause she just wants to lay with you. When she's out in the yard, her goofy side comes out and she loves rolling around on her back or playing fetch. She would thrive in a calmer home without any younger children and will need some extra time and patience while she settles into a new environment. While she's been uncertain about playing with dogs here at the shelter, she's done great on field trips walking alongside other dogs and would enjoy having some dog friends outside of the home! If you're looking for your forever cuddle buddy, hit the inquire button!
This dashing dude is Barnum! Like any hound, he loves to sniff around exploring new scents and is quite the barker. He enjoys spending time with people and gets excited when you toss a plushie toy his way! This busy guy can get distracted easily and will need patient adopters who are willing to work slowly as he adjusts to a new home and polishes his basic manners.
Say hi to Lolita! This sweet girl is excited for a life of fun and adventure, it's like she doesn't even realize she's 7. She gets excited when she meets people and will greet them with a pep in her step and a wiggling body. Adopters should be patient with her as she adjusts to her new home and settles in. She should meet with any children in the home to make sure they're okay with her size and any goofy antics!
Pam is a year old and is as friendly as she is pretty! She LOVES other dogs, and is always happy to romp in the yard or go on a hike with her dog pals. She also rides well in the car, so we think she'd make a great adventure buddy. In addition to being an active companion, Pam is really affectionate with her people and you might even find her hopping in your lap to give you some kisses. Like most youngins, Pam doesn't always pick up on socials cues, and gets really excited easily, so her new family should be pumped to continue her training. The great news is that Pam is smart, and loves a good treat, so she makes an excellent student.
Nik is full of enthusiasm and finds so much joy in meeting new people, going on walks, rides in the car, and most of all playing with his many dog friends - seriously, he's friends with every dog he meets! He's a regular social butterfly who is ready to say hi to anybody and everybody. On top of being enthusiastic, Nik gets excited very easily and is still lacking manners, so young kids may not be the best fit...he would love a dog sibling to wrestle with however!
Smokey the dog, not the bear, says only you can prevent him from staying at the shelter any longer. This sweet guy is ready for a lifetime of fun and adventure. He enjoys going on walks and is still learning his loose leash manners. He gets very excited when meeting people and is looking for an adopter to help him manage his energy levels. He should meet any potential canine siblings before going home.
Everyone meet Hercules! A charming boy, Hercules loves playing with his humans just as much as he loves getting belly rubs. When meeting Hercules, you'll notice he has a little extra junk in the trunk. This is due to benign fatty deposits that have developed over time. These deposits do not stop him from going the distance. He shows no signs of discomfort and is living life to the fullest! Frequent cleaning of his rear will be expected of future adopters to help maintain his personal hygiene as he has trouble reaching himself.
Hercules is currently spending some time in a foster home, so if you think Hercules is the man for you, email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a time to meet him!
This sweet girl is Bubbles! She’s a smart pup that loves to spend time with people and makes a great student for training. There's nothing this girl loves more than a tennis ball- whether it's playing fetch or settling down by her people with a ball in her mouth. She can be a bit shy at first, but warms up when treats or toys are involved. She would thrive in a calm household with a family that will give her the time she needs to settle in. While she's been uncertain about playing with dogs here at the shelter, she's done great on field trips walking alongside other dogs and would enjoy having some dog friends outside of the home!
Say hi to Arturo, a sweet guy with the most contagious smile. This pup loves doing zoomies around the yard, nuzzling people for scratches and playing with all the toys he can get his mouth on. He gets nervous when meeting new people, but slowly warms up with the help of patience and treats! Adopters should be prepared to work slowly with him as he adjusts to a new environment. He would do best in a home without any young children, and should meet any canine siblings before going home.
