General information: Fergie is an extremely sweet young Beagle mix. She has been exposed to young children and did wonderfully with them. Her foster mom says that she is SUCH a good girl. She figures out doggie puzzles and toys within minutes, has good manners when meeting other people and dogs, and listens really well. She gets lots of compliments on how well behaved she is and how darn cute she is! She’s doing very well on her leash walking and also knows how to ring a set of bells to ask to go outside! Fergie is a great pup and will do well in a variety of settings.

General information: Winston is an adorable Poodle mix who recently joined our program. He can be a little shy in the first moment you meet him but once he sees that you’re his friend he is very affectionate. He does well with other dogs and is more submissive than “in charge.” He’s an all around great little guy and will do well in a variety of environments.

Breed: Husky mix
Sex: Female spayed
Estimated birthdate: January 2018
Size: Medium, 35 lbs (should be closer to 40-43)
Good with cats: yes
Good with kids: unknown
Housetrained: yes
General information: This stunning girl is as loving as she is gorgeous. Libby is extremely affectionate and is happy melting onto her human or going outside to explore. She needs to gain some weight, upon arrival was 35 lbs but we’d like to see her closer to 40-45 lbs. We believe that she’s a husky mix but her coat isn’t nearly as dense. She has beautiful amber eyes and “smiles” when she looks up at you. Because she is young and has a Northern breed background, Libby will do best with routine exercise and the ability to go for hearty walks. She will be an excellent companion for an individual or family.

General information: Willa was left in a drop box in a rural kill shelter. She is extremely friendly, seems to like everyone, and has a sweet disposition. As a hound mix, she loves the outdoors and following her nose! She would do well in an environment where she got to be part of the household and share all of her affection as well as being able to get outside exploration time. She’s a wonderful compact 35 lbs and will be a terrific pet!
