MINGUS was living on borrowed time in a shelter down south. Luckily for him, and his new family to be, he made it up here. A very active young Hound, he loves playing with other dogs and going out for walks, he loves people too and can be quite the cuddler.

ELMER has come a long way since his arrival in October 2016 - yes, sadly he has been here a year.  During that time he has put on much needed weight, his skin condition has cleared up and he has become one handsome young man.  He has proved himself to be a good boy, but he will need obedience training and enough exercise to keep himself out of mischief.  Very loving towards people he has to be the only animal in the house.  He has watched so many dogs come in and go home and it makes him sad that no one seems to want to adopt him, he is a great dog who deserves better.

SASHA is a Hound mix who could almost be mistaken for a large Dachshund! She is a happy little girl who wants to play and be loved. Very energetic and at only about eighteen months old she could use some basic obedience.

KHAL is small, nimble and lightning quick on his feet. This active little mix is also very affectionate and loves nothing more than cuddling with his human. He will need some training but as he is a smart boy he should learn quickly.

POSSUM is a sweet senior gentleman who was saved from ending his life on the streets. Despite his name and appearance he is actually a dog, probably a Chihuahua mix. He likes to sleep, sit on a lap to be cuddled and he gets around well even though he has limited vision.

SHELBY is a mother of 4 boisterous outgoing puppies, she however is very shy indeed. She seems like a really sweet-natured dog who will need a calm and understanding home where she can come out of her shell and be a normal dog.
