Paxton

Paxton…oh Paxton. This good looking lad is probably going to end up on one of those viral dog shaming posts. He may have his head stuck in a garbage pail, he may steal your breakfast, it’s really anyone’s guess. He’s enthusiastic and never boring! Paxton prefers to be a free-range kind of guy versus a stuck-in-a-crate fellow. He would not do well as an apartment dog and needs a partner to do martial arts, circus tricks, or just basic exercise would be ok too. Paxton is actually a smart boy and now part of our canine-inmate program. While he’s in the program he’ll be learning basic obedience and how not to end up on America’s Funniest Videos. If you are looking for a companion to bring a smile to your face, this is your guy. Please fill out an online application to meet Paxton.

Dylan

Dylan

Dylan is an athletic, driven, and highly intelligent German Shepherd/Cattle Dog mix and is absolutely gorgeous. He was literally saved an hour before being euthanized and been in a foster home since. When Dylan first arrived he was very nervous and reactive towards other dogs. He was initially in our canine/inmate program but the environment proved to be too stressful for him. Because he seemed to be showing signs of fear aggression, he was pulled from the program and placed in a dog-savvy foster home. Dylan immediately began to relax and we are so pleased to see his progress. He has since been worked with professionally by Daniel Carter, owner and Head Trainer of Off Leash K-9. Dylan has been completely trained in his obedience commands and has been very successful in mastering what has been asked of him. Daniel will train Dylan’s new owner on the proper use of his e-collar and commands.
We are looking for a specific type of home environment for Dylan. He will need regular daily exercise and a fenced yard. He must be the only pet in the home…while Dylan has successfully played and interacted with other dogs, we know that he can get pretty ramped up around them and in order to ensure his success we feel it’s best that he is the “only.” He has been fine around kids, but again, we want Dylan to continue with his positive progress and not risk him getting overly excited! If you are looking for an amazingly bright, energetic companion who has been professionally trained, then you should meet Dylan! If interested, please fill out our online application!
DOB: January 2014
Weight: 55 lbs
Good with cats: no
Good with kids: yes but no children under 15 in new home
Housebroken: yes
