PERLA came to us from a rescue group in the South. She is a beautiful, friendly Australian Shepherd mix who is full of energy and as smart as a whip. Very energetic and playful she gets on well with some dogs and is looking for a home where she can be kept busy and given plenty of exercise.

HOT SHOT was a stray who found his way to Animal Control, then here. He is an older Chihuahua whose name suits him perfectly. He can be leery of strangers, he just likes to take his time to get to know people. However when he decides that someone is all right he is the nicest little boy who would make the perfect lapdog.

ADAM is a beautiful 5 year old chocolate Lab who is looking for a very special home. Adam has anxiety issues and will need to be with capable and understanding people in a calm, adult-only environment. He has so much potential and hopefully over time (and with patience) he will learn how to be a real dog. Only homes with secure fencing will be considered.

ELMER had a rough start in life, tied up outside by himself and not fed too much judging by how thin he is. He is an active boy who hasn't had any training and needs to learn how to behave properly. He needs a home where he can be part of the family and become a well mannered dog who is much loved.

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.

BUBBLES is a Chow mix who came to us from a bad situation where he was often running loose and getting himself into trouble. He is about ten years old and is considerably larger than he appears in his picture. A sweet boy who is looking for a stable home where he can be loved and kept safe.

CASSIAN is a large Coonhound and is skeleton thin, poor guy all he wants to do right now is eat - his bowl is empty before it reaches the floor. He is a very nice boy with tons of energy. Hopefully when he has put on some much needed weight he will calm down a bit. He really is a good dog who has been through a rough time and he deserves so much better.
