To fill out an application for any of the following dogs please click hereThese are the Encore alumni only and do not represent all the dogs available at the Calhoun County Humane Society. To learn more about other animals they have available please visit their direct page and/or site here. All Encore alumni are offered two free training lessons following their adoption. 

Lady

Five year old yellow lab/smooth collie mix Lady was surrendered in November and is understandably shy of strangers right now. It’s hard to trust when your world is turned upside down. She is a beautiful girl about 45 lbs. Lady has taken some treats from staff and that’s a great sign.   

Nina

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 looks sad
Tucker

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

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! 

Robin

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.

Tobias

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. 

Sapphire

Another eight-year old, this friendly girl has sadly spent six of those years in the shelter. Sapphire has an auto immune disorder that makes her skin flare up. You can see bald spots on her back and her chest turns pink under her brown and white coat. Sapphire is friendly and loves to talk. She may be asking for someone who can see that her beauty is beyond skin deep. 

Rikki

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.

Storm

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.

Rudy
Brown, red and white mix Rudy is a year old and was surrendered to the shelter in April. He’s just over the top sweet and a perfect medium size. He’s being treated for demodectic mange (the non-contagious kind) so his fur is still patchy in spots.  
Marley

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

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

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.  

Luna

Luna is a three year old merle and white catahoula mix who weighs about 45 pounds and has been at the shelter since March of 2020.

Star

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.

Rain
This eight-year old gray and white bully mix was surrendered after years of breeding. Rain is making up for lost time though – once she gets to meet you a couple of times, she’s all in for snuggles. She also loves toys and will plop down for a good chewfest with the nylabone.
Vivian

Ace is a three year old black and white lab mix who weighs about 50 pounds and has been at the shelter since June of 2021. 

Norma
Meet three year old Norma, a beautiful gray and white mix. She already knows “sit” and is very treat motivated. It’s a shame that at some point she fell victim to an at-home ear crop that went bad. Her right ear was cut so close the little nub that is left hugs her head and she can’t move it at all. But that doesn’t stop Norma from being a friendly and outgoing girl.
Ace

Ace is a three year old black and white lab mix who weighs about 50 pounds and has been at the shelter since June of 2021. 

Amos

Amos is a five year old brindle hound/terrier mix who weighs about 40 pounds and has been at the shelter since May of 2021. 

Percy

Percy is a year old grey American Staffordshire Terrier mix who weighs about 60 pounds and has been at the shelter since June of 2021. 

Neptune

Neptune is a year old brindle and white Great Dane/Hound mix who weighs about 45 pounds and has been at the shelter since May of 2021. 

Avery

Solid like a rock, that’s three year old Avery. He’s a gorgeous blue brindle mix who came in as a stray and is already neutered. Avery’s nickname is Flapjack, because if he decides he doesn’t want to go where you are walking him, sometimes he pancakes right down on the ground! Which of course is so cute you have to pet him, and that is what Avery loves most of all.

Gus

Our other three year old this week is tricolor mix Gus. There must be some Husky in this stunning looking guy, with those blue eyes and that funny way he has of talking when he’s in his crate. It’s a cross between singing, humming and howling and it is very unique!

Falkor

Looking for a big dog? Then meet 18 month old Falkor, a Great Pyrenees mixed with Great Dane or something else really Great Big…Falkor was just surrendered to the shelter earlier this month and he is dog friendly and a gentle giant. Think how handy it is to have a dog you don’t have to bend over to pet!

Cooper

Year old Cooper is a lot of German Shepherd and a lot of sweetheart. He’s dog friendly and people friendly, but he appreciates being approached quietly. Like some people, some dogs don’t appreciate an over-the-top greeting from a stranger!
