Adult dogs available for adoption

Paw Paw

Male

1 yr.

 

 

Meet Paw Paw! This little guy is truly special! He was found wandering the streets and needs a good home. He is approximately 1 year old, 26 lbs. and will not grow much bigger than he is right now. He is HW negative, has all his shots and is neutered. He is house trained, learned the doggie door, fell right in line with the pack and was very respectful of the house. He is cat friendly, kid friendly, and has a confident and stable demeanor. He would work extremely well in a house with kids or even with an older couple. Paw Paw is playful and loves to chase balls and play with other doggies so he does need his exercise or you might find one of your socks in the back yard. He exhibits many characteristics of a great therapy dog. This great doggie deserves a great forever home. Will you be his forever adoptee?

 

Tripped

Female

5 yrs.

 

 

Tripped is a calm, sweet 5 year old girl so no need to worry about all that puppy business…. potty training, teething, barking all night. At 57 lbs., she is an average sized dog that won’t need a lot of activity, but does enjoy a nice leisurely walk every now and then. She particularly loves taking a dip in the ocean. All she needs is someone to yell “WATER DOG” and in she goes! She is very good on leash and is non-reactive to cats and other dogs while out on walks. She currently lives in a home with two other dogs and gets along with them just fine. Tripped even knows a few tricks! She can “sit”, “play dead”, and will play peek-a-boo with her blanket. Tripped, like many other dogs, is scared of thunderstorms and fireworks. However, it is very manageable and typically she just likes to find a closet to get in or a bed to hide under until it’s over.

Female

Butch

Cattle dog mix

Male

1 yr.

 

 

Butch was owner surrendered to our rescue with his brother and partner in crime, Sundance! They are the best of friends - but would be fine without each other. Sundance is a happy boy! He loves going for walks, playing ball, and hanging out with his people! He is great with other dogs, cats, and children - but not chickens! He was adopted and returned after chewing on some shoes. He still has some puppy tendencies, but if his family promises to give him the proper training he needs, he promises to give all the love he has!

I'm a sweet girl who can be a little timid at first, but once I get to know you - we'll be BFF's forever! I am very obedient and have been working on my basic manners such as sit and walking on a leash! I get along great with other dogs and would probably love to have a doggie companion!!

She has had surgery to repair both and is now spunkier than ever! She doesn't let her age hold her down and enjoys going on short walks and curling up for long naps!! She is a sweet & quiet girl though she sometimes howls in her sleep. She is house broken. She has not damaged 1 thing since she has been in her foster home and knows a few commands, is crate trained, and she insists on be with me as I tinker in the garage or yard. She loves belly rubs & gives great kisses.She is looking for the perfect family who will look past her old age and love her forever!!

Flutter

Long hair chihuahua

Female

1 yr.

 

 

Hi! I'm Flutter! I was rescued and adopted as a puppy, but was recently returned as I was having some problems at home. I am a very, very sweet girl who loves to curl up in my human's lap. Sometimes, other dogs try to come around while my human and I are cuddling and that doesn't make me very happy. My foster mom has been working really hard to break me of this habit, so whoever takes me home will have to make sure and continue working on me so that I can be the perfect angel that I know I can be! I'm potty trained and otherwise do well with other dogs of all sizes and even enjoy playing with my foster siblings!

 

Princess Peach

Lab mix

Female

3 yrs.

 

 

Hello, my name is Princess Peach. I was saved from the streets with about ten other dogs in a massive rescue. I was in very poor health so I have only recently been ready to find a home. Somehow I lost half my tail. But that's my secret. I am on the small side for a lab mix. I can be a little shy now after having a really hard life. I'm still very young though and am still super playful. I would love a family who would take me for walks and out on adventures to help me gain confidence in myself so I can show the whole world how wonderful of a dog I am! I get along great with other dogs, cats, and even kids and I'm just waiting for that perfect person to adopt me.

 

Tiva

Lab mix

Female

1 yr.

 

 

Meet Tiva! She's a young mini lab! At least that's what her foster calls her! She's working on her socialization skills to prepare her for adoption. In the last week she has come a long way. She's visited the dog park, learned to seek out people whenever she feels nervous (instead of hiding), and become much more willing to accept affection from strangers. She suffers from a bit of separation anxiety and would do best in a home with another doggie companion!!

 

Hope

Shar pei / pit mix

4 yrs.

 

 

Hi! I'm Hope! I was rescued several years ago after being hit by a car and found on the side of the road in real rough shape! I had since been adopted, but just recently got returned when my owners moved! I am a total SWEETHEART! I love everyone that I meet - including dogs of all sizes and even kiddos! I ride real well in the car and love going on new adventures!!

 

Annie

Beagle / lab mix

Female

4 yrs.

 

 

I'm Annie!! I have actually been in the program since I was a puppy! I was adopted for a little while but then I was brought back in to the rescue! When I came back, we found out that I had cancer. Luckily, the rescue paid for the surgery that saved my life! The doctor said that she got all of the tumor and now I feel 1000000% better!! I am the most docile and sweet girl! I love to give hugs and cuddle! I get along great with dogs of all sizes, kids, and even cats! I love playing fetch and getting lots of love and attention!! I'm a very special girl who is looking for a very special forever home!

 

Desirey

Chihuahua

2 yrs.

 

 

Hi! I'm Desirey!! I'm a sweet little chihuahua mix! I thoroughly enjoy lounging around with all of my foster siblings!! I like to cuddle with everyone - 2 legged and 4!! I can be a little shy at first, but once I get to know you we'll be guaranteed best buds forever!! I would prefer a home where I can cuddle with my humans all day longgg!! I would make the perfect companion for anyone who has love to give!!

 

Mystery

Lab mix

 

 

Hi! I'm Mystery!!!I am a pretty high energy lab mix who loves to run and play. I would love a family of my own to take me on hikes, to the beach, and even just around the block!! I get along great with other dogs and would probably even do better in a home where I wasn't the only pooch. I'm the biggest goof ball and I love to prance around and play with all sorts of fun toys - including my food bowl!! I'm a bit people shy, but once I get to know you,you'll be guaranteed to be my best friend forever!!!

 

Kix

Pit Mix

Male

5 yrs.

 

 

Kix is the most well behaved, easiest dog ever! This big couch potato also enjoys playing with other dogs, taking naps with kitties, and he adores children!!! Kix is a laid back dude, but sometimes when he gets stressed it aggrevates his skin, causing some hair loss. Unfortunately, this is something that he will struggle with his whole life; however, it is an easy fix!! Kix needs a family who is going to be quiet and steady and be committed to giving him the special treatment he deserves and needs.

 

Chucky

 

 

Hi, I'm Chucky! I was rescued with a really bad foot injury. I went out of town for special surgery and now I'm all better. I do have a sensitive stomach so I have to eat high quality grain free food. I get along with other dogs - but would be fine if I was the only one. I would love a home where I could be treated like a king! I love to lounge around the house and stay right by my human's side! 

 

Caution

Meerkat mix

 

 

Hi! I'm Cautionnnn!!! I am the cutest little meerkat mix around. I may be little, but I have lots and lots of love to give!! It might take me a little while to warm up, I'm just cautious - that's all! Once I get to know you, there's no turning back, we'll be guaranteed best buds forever!! I love napping on the couch, binge watching netflix and would enjoy taking nice long walks on the beach.I get along great with other pooches and probably even cats, even though I've never met one before. I would make the perfect companion for just about anyone!!

Female

Reka

 

I am a shy girl. I need to be in a very loving home. I really like women more than men but maybe I could learn to like them. It's fun to play with other dogs and I really do need another dog around to relax and feel totally comfortable. I would make a good companion for your doggie!

 

Tyse

P:it mix

2 yrs.

 

Tyse

 

Hi my name is Tyse. I am a 3 year old little pit mix. I was adoped as a 10 week old puppy but returned after two years because my last adoped parents didn't want to take care of me anymore. I now have heartworms and am being treated and doing well. I like long walks, hugs, and kisses and some time in a kids pool to cool me down. I am loyal and at times kinda mellow,

 

Fulton

Lab mix

Male

1 yr.

 

Fulton

 

I got my name because of where I was found as a young pup, on the Fulton International Corridor! My foster mom calls me Fulton Peanut. I am a rambunctious guy with lots of love! I love to play with my foster siblings - we could play all day and night if Mom would let us! Do you have dragon flies in your back yard? My favorite thing to do is chase them! I run and jump all over the yard trying to catch those little creatures. It is so much fun! I will need lots of exercise. Do you run or hike? Then we would be great together! I am very eager to meet you!
