Deacon

DESCRIPTION: Alpha found himself at the shelter after his former person passed away. He is a big boy but does need to lose around 15 lbs. When he arrived in our care his long coat had not been well cared for, it was matted and quite smelly. His foster mom immediately gave him a much needed bath and started working on de matting him. It is still an ongoing process but he already looks so much better and smells better also. He took it all in stride. He has a laid back country boy way about him, a very sweet disposition. He is quiet and relaxed in the house and good with other dogs. Ask to meet this big handsome boy, you won't be disappointed.

DESCRIPTION: Blake is in need of a home with either no children or children 16 years and up. He does not do well with young children and their activity. He adores adults especially women, he does take longer to warm up to men. Once he feels safe with a man he comes out of his shell. Blake needs to learn to trust, have structure and consistency in his life. Training will be beneficial for Blake and his new person as it will help greatly with creating trust and a bond. Please won't you give Blake the chance at life he so deserves?

Mako

DESCRIPTION: Bowden is a young boy who doesn't know his boundaries nor does he have any manners. He is going to need a home without young children as he is very mouthy. He will need a person who will set boundaries, correct unwanted behaviors and teach him acceptable behaviors. Training is an absolute must as it with all of our dogs. Bowden is young and full of himself at this point in his life, guidance, training and an experienced confident handler will certainly make a difference for him.

braun
Camera Click here for more pictures

 

DESCRIPTION: Braun was being dumped at a shelter for reasons unknown. Luckily a volunteer was at the shelter and saw him coming in, she quickly snatched him up and took him into foster. Braun is everything you would expect from a puppy, he is full of life, love and puppy kisses. Of course along with that he is also mischievous, gets into things, chews, destroys his toys, has accidents and is full of puppy energy. Please think seriously before deciding to adopt a puppy, you will need the time, patience, energy and finances that are required to provide him with all that is needed for the rest of life.

DESCRIPTION: Jarek came to us from a shelter. As he is new to us we are still getting to know him better.

DESCRIPTION: Jose came to us as a stray from a shelter. He is the cutest boy and an ideal size for someone looking for a dog not as large as your typical GSD. This boy has a tremendous amount of energy and would be a perfect running partner or agility dog. He is smart, curious, and wants to please. You'll fall in love with him when he sits in front of you, tilting his head side to side as he waits for a treat. With training, exercise, and love he will be a happy boy. If you are looking for a smaller boy then please put Jose on your list of dogs to meet.

Sastri
Camera Click here for more pictures

 

 

DESCRIPTION: Sas is a VERY sweet boy who desperately wants to be loved, but doesn't exactly know how to be. He hasn't lived the easiest of lives up to this point, being surrendered to the shelter by his moving owners with his hind end covered in feces and stained with urine and afraid of walking next to my hand. While he has gotten much better during his time in rescue, Sas doesn't seem to know what it means to be cared for: for example relaxing for a good pet, or allowing his ears to be cleaned, nails clipped etc. He is in NO way aggressive or outwardly upset by it, but he does seem to be afraid, not knowing what you are doing or the relief that basic care brings him. Once you are able to wrangle him down and get it done, he gives you licks of thanks, but he does need a bit of wrangling! lol :) In my opinion he acts a lot like what I call a "garage dog": an animal chained in the garage and left. No interaction, no training, no exposure to anything really. BUT despite that Sas does want to be loved, he has shown his ability to try and accept new places, people, animals and circumstances and is learning about what it means to have someone "take care" of him and to trust in.

Sastri does well with very mellow dogs, he is afraid of playing with others but will happily be in the yard with another pup who is content allowing him to be there. He also seems to be ok with cats in the house, but looks like he would like to chase them if he saw them running outside (he is a dog after all!! LOL). Sastri wants attention from everyone big or small, but given where he is in his learning, a family with older children, ones who can help maintain structure and training would be best.

UPDATE: Hello, my name is Sastri, my foster parents think I am a mix of German Shepherd and possibly Husky and I think I am about three years old. They say my nickname is Freckles because I have dots on my snout. I have a lot of energy and I want to be around my people as much as possible. My foster mommy owns a doggie daycare so I get to socialize and play with other dogs all day long and they say I do pretty good. I also have no problems with kitty cats, we have one where I am living right now and I hardly pay it no mind. I am a little scared of vehicles but I will gladly get in one, I will just hide down on the floor until you come to a stop. I am also a little scared of vehicles when we go for a walk. I cower behind my foster parents until the car goes by. They are trying to work with me on this and it is getting better. I am crate trained and will get in the crate willingly. But, I do love to cuddle with my people so anytime you want me to sleep with you I will be more than happy to. My foster parents recently took me to the beach for a long weekend and I had a blast! The water was awesome & I loved it! I had so much fun with my foster sister. I am looking for my forever home & would love to have someone love me as much as I love them. Ask for an appointment to meet me today!

Scotty
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: They don't come much sweeter then Scotty. he adores children and other dogs. He would prefer to not share his home with cats, they are just too tempting to chase. Scotty does have playful energy, after all he is still a puppy. Training of course is necessary as it is with all dogs. If you are looking for a loving friendly boy, a jogging partner and cuddler please ask to meet Scotty.

Update: Scotty here to tell you I've left my past behind me and am ready to live out the rest of my life in a home filled with love and attention. I think I am a lap dog and will melt once you start petting me. I love to get belly rubs and can sometimes be a goof ball. I love to play with toys especially the ones that are soft and squeak​, and those round objects too. I like to play keep away with my toys​,​ but you can just take it right from my mouth. My foster mom says it's important to note that I am crate trained, potty trained, and obedience trained. I heel nicely on the leash and know sit, down, stay, crate, and off. I like to play with other dogs and am super​-​ duper fast. My favorite type of humans are little people my foster mom calls them ​"​ kids​"​ . They make my tail go a mile a minute and they make me oh so happy. I am a little afraid of getting into the car but my foster mom convinces me with treats. Boy do I love treats, I will do anything for a treat. I need to put on some weight because I am thin and my foster mom tells me I was stressed at the kennel​,​ but now that I am living in a home​,​ I am flourishing. I have been told I am smart and have so much potential. Training is fun for me and I like to make my humans happy. I am a happy go lucky boy and am looking for someone to love me. ​Will you love me?​

Shotzie
Camera Click here for more pictures

 

DESCRIPTION: Shotzie was trembling and quite scared as he sat in a shelter not knowing his fate.  This poor boy seems to have been through lot, not in the best of condition, infested with fleas and ticks and what looks to be old bite wounds to his face.  We have promised Shotzie a life of love and care and that he would never have to be frightened again.  Understandably he can be shy and withdrawn at first but once comfortable he snuggles up looking for love.  Shotzie needs a family and a home where he can start his life a new.  Please ask to meet this sweet young boy. 

UPDATE: Shotzie has been diagnosed with Demodex mange along with a secondary skin infection. Poor little boy has several sores from scratching. He crawls along the grass like an alligator to scratch his belly. He is currently in a foster home resting comfortably and clearing up nicely. Shortly after starting treatment and receiving a much needed bath his true personality started to shine. He is very playful, entertaining and the sweetest boy you would ever want to meet. He loves all toys and will entertain himself for hours. He is currently living with other dogs and cats. He is very gentle and tolerant of anything concerning his care. He does not mind being pampered, including shampoo, blow dry, nail trims and dremel, ear cleanings, brushing and any medication applications. Shotzie is crate trained and has had no accidents in the house. He sleeps through the night without a peep and doesn't protest the crate. He does display the normal puppy behaviors of chewing and getting into things. He is very curious and seems comfortable in a home. He does like to steal shoes and slippers and takes them to his crate for a new design. He is rather thin and could use a few pounds. He is a very easy boy and a pleasure to have in our home. If you are interested in this little love bug don't delay and ask to meet Shotzie.
