Clark

Clark

Breed: Mixed unknown
Sex: Male neutered
Estimated birthdate: January 2018
Size: Medium, 23 lbs
Good with kids: unknown
Good with cats: unknown
General information: Clark is the funkiest looking little guy. His pics make him appear larger, but he is only 23 lbs. Our best guess is that he’s a herding breed mix, possibly Australian Cattle Dog. He has recently joined our program so we are getting to know him better, but so far he’s shown himself to be a great dog. He’s smart, rides well in a car, and likes other dogs. He’s the perfect size to tag along on walks, road trips, or just curl up with at home. If you’d like to meet this unique boy, please fill out an online application.

Louie

Louie

Breed: Australian Shepherd mix
Sex: Male neutered
Estimated birthdate: September 2018
Size: Medium (EST ONLY 45 lbs full grown)
Good with kids: 10+
Good with cats: has been exposed and not bothered
Housebroken: yes
General information: Louie was adopted and returned due to the family having some behavioral concerns. After a consult with a trainer and veterinarian it was determined that the adoptive household was not a good fit for Louie. He is currently in a foster home doing wonderfully. His foster mom says:
“He’s doing really well and is a very good little guy. We haven’t had any issues with other dogs (or cats or goats or horses!) He’s super sweet with everyone he meets…and he’s adorable!” He currently is being fostered with a large male dog and makes regular trips to the barn. Louie is working on a few things like being protective of his food bowl and basic manners. He is a herding breed mix which means he is super smart, active, loves to have a “job”/toys/play and be involved with his people. We are committed to finding Louie his “forever” home and strongly prefer herding breed experience.

Willa

Willa

Breed: Hound mix
Sex: Female Spayed
Estimated birthdate: 2/2017
Size: Medium, 40 lbs
Good with cats: unknown
Good with kids: unknown, best 5+ due to energy
Housebroken: yes
General information: Willa is a super pup! She is doing great and has all the basics down plus more! She is fun, silly, very smart and athletic. She is crate trained, house trained and great with the other dog in the home. She has a keen interest in cats and birds so a home without might be best. She loves the toddler next door but has only had contact through a fence. She is friendly to all but children 8+ would be best due to her energy. She calms down nicely and is happy to curl up on the couch, loves to be played with and loves her toys. In her excitement she will sometimes jump up but has gotten much better! Willa has an an amazing beagle nose and loves to track any scents found, she is fast, agile and a lean muscular 35#. A fenced yard is best as well as being able to scent/track outdoors or take long walks with her nose to the ground…that would make her soooo happy! Her foster parents have been working with her on the bike path and she would be an amazing jogging/biking buddy.

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.
