Buzz is a six year old white and brindle dutch shepherd mix who weighs about 45 pounds and has been at the shelter since March of 2014. Although Buzz loves all people, other dogs are a bit different. They aren’t his favorite. Buzz prefers to be the only dog and in return he promises to have all the love and kisses you could possibly ever need! Buzz knows sit and down. He always aims to please so learning the rest of his commands should be a breeze.
Nina is a three year old white and brindle spayed mountain cur mix who weighs about 45 pounds and has been at the shelter since October of 2017. She is very sweet! Although she has alot of energy, she also has the perfect balance with it! Nina enjoys toys and your attention. She loves play time but also loves snuggles as well!
Tucker is a eight year old grey and silver lab/husky mix who weighs about 45 pounds and has been at the shelter since August of 2019. Tucker does not like other dogs.
Diesel is an eight year old black neutered English Labrador Retriever who weighs about 75 pounds and has been at the shelter since April of 2012. He has spent almost his entire life at the shelter. The lack of a home environment has aged him quicker than his eight years would indicate. He has callouses on his stomach and his elbows. He also has skin tags all over. Diesel walks kinda slow, he enjoys the scenery. He is dog selective, so a meet and greet would be best if you already have a furry friend at home. Diesel loves being a couch potato, so a soft place to rest his weary bones would be so nice!! P.S. we saw a spark of puppy in Diesel eyes when we brought out the squeaky toy!
Gracie is a five year old white and brown pointer/springer spaniel mix who weighs about 45 pounds and has been at the shelter since March of 2013. She has lost some hair on her back and belly, perhaps from an allergy or due to stress. Gracie can be easily startled by loud noises or fast movements, but if you take things slow and reassure her, she comes out of her shell and warms right up to you. If she does get startled or anxious, she looks for a way to escape so it is important that she has a home where she feels safe.
Tobias is a three year old blue and white american staffordshire terrier who weighs about 45 pounds and has been at the shelter since January of 2020. He is dog reactive.
Wanda is a year old white and brown boxer/american staffordshire terrier mix who weighs about 30 pounds and has been at the shelter since May of 2019. She is a ball of energy for sure! Wanda is always on the go. She loves to play just as much as she loves all of your attention! Wanda knows sit.
Rikki is a four year old white and tan american staffordshire terrier mix who weighs about 40 pounds and has been at the shelter since October of 2015. She is kid friendly and has a happy go lucky soul.
Dove is a three year grey and white greyhound mix who weighs about 30 pounds and has been at the shelter since February of 2019.
Aden is a six year old black and white american staffordshire terrier mix who weighs about 60 pounds and has been at the shelter since September of 2014. He has spent almost his entire life in the shelter. It has been way too long to go without his furever home! He’s very friendly with people but doesn’t get along with other dogs. He loves stuffed animal toys. Aden needs help with his basic commands and we are so happy to be able to help him with that!
Marley is a four year old white and black bulldog/dalmatian mix who weighs about 45 pounds and has been at the shelter since May of 2016. He is sweet and very gentle. Marley loves to simply follow you around wherever you go! He aims to please and is very smart. Marley knows sit, down, wait, stay, and shake!
Bodie is a three year old black and white american bulldog who weighs about 55 pounds and has been at the shelter since May of 2018. He is full of confidence. Bodie is a sweetheart with people but is not good with other animals. He wants you all to himself.
Cosmo is a three year old black and white lab mix who weighs about 50 pounds and has been at the shelter since July of 2020.

Parker is a two year old mocha and black plotthound/lab mix who weighs about 40 pounds and has been at the shelter since February of 2020. Parker does not like other male dogs or cats.
Storm is seven and is a light chocolate color with white trim. This lab/hound/bully mix was just surrendered to the shelter after years of living in a crate and having too many puppies. No wonder she is a bit shy at first and doesn’t know what toys or playing is all about. She’s got a happy spirit and we hope to bring lots of joy and new experiences to her.
Star is seven and is red and white mix (maybe Aussie, Collie or Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever). She is a spayed female who has been at the shelter since 2014. Star is cautious and skittish of fast movements or scary new objects – she did NOT like having her picture taken! Star is stocky with a gorgeous soft coat and is starting to show grey on her muzzle. We look forward to helping Star learn that new people and new things don’t have to be scary.
Robin is eight years old but she never got the “senior dog” memo! Robin is so happy go lucky and runs right up to you for attention. In fact, she’s as good with getting petted as she is with a treat. Robin’s another long term shelter dog that has been waiting since 2014 for the right match. This reddish brown mix has angel wing markings on her shoulders and a cute white bib on her chest.
