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.

Good with kids: young enough to socialize
Housebroken: almost!
General information: This gorgeous puppy is new to our program but already showing us how smart she is! Allie has beautiful dark brindle patches and a natural stumpy tail. She’s very bright, food motivated, and learns amazingly fast. ACD’s are a loyal, hardworking, intelligent, intuitive breed that love to have a job and a person to please. They are not couch potatoes and require regular exercise to stay happy and healthy. Allie focuses on her person and wants to do what she’s asked. If you are looking for an active companion to spend your time with and get a life of adoration and commitment in return, this is your dog.

Winston

Winston

Breed: Poodle/Schnauzer mix
Sex: Male neutered
Estimated birthdate: February 2018
Size: Small, 15 lbs
Good with cats: unknown
Good with kids: unknown
Housetrained: yes
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.

Libby

Libby

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.

Brody

Brody

Breed: Shih Tzu mix
Sex: Male neutered
Est. birthdate: April 2016
Size: Small, 15 lbs
Good with kids: yes
Good with cats: yes
Housetrained: yes
General information: Brody came to us after his senior citizen owner became too ill to care for him. His pictures don’t represent Brody’s full potential! He had surgery on his right eye (for cherry eye, completely fixed!) the day before his pictures so it’s still swollen and red. He also has some discoloring of his fur from poor grooming and saliva irritation…all of these things will get MUCH better once he’s had good nutrition and proper bathing. Brody is a sweetheart and loves to be near his person. He is friendly, good with kids and said to be good with cats (we have no personally tested him.) He is a happy boy and now that his eye feels better, he’s ready for his forever home!
