**Rescue pending** Sugar Bear, cute Husky/mix
4 years   Female

Sugar Bear is a very cute, medium-sized Husky/mix. Maybe 4 years old and about 45 years old. Friendly and affectionate, she can be a little skittish, would like a cozy home where she knows she's safe. Friendly with other dogs, fine on a leash.

Nabisco, sweet big girl!
7+ years   Female

Nabisco is a very friendly Bulldog/mix (??English American??) who is a bit older and very cute. She was picked up when a lady called the sheriff's office "there's a dog in my car!!". Lady was taking groceries into her house and left the car door open. She went back for another load and there Nabisco sat, about 70 pounds of her, innocently waiting with the groceries. A very sweet girl, needs a safe place to land.

Toby, spunky chi/mix
2 years   Male

Toby is a tiny little Chi/mix, maybe 10 pounds and 2 years old. He would like to think he's a tiger, but he's just a little tiny boy, loves people, strangers included -- very affectionate. Getting better around other dogs since he's been with us -- he is careful at first but willing to be friends once he learns they don't want to take advantage of his tininess ;-). Fine with cats, even the one that's bigger than him.

Zeke, handsome little man
1 year   Male

Zeke is an adorable medium-sized boy, about 35 pounds and 1 year old. Maybe Jack Russell/mix, he is friendly and energetic, good with people and other dogs too. Crazy ears, seems to be able to do tricks with them.

Amy and Annie -- cute pups!
10 weeks   Female

Amy and Annie are the last of a litter, very friendly and very cute, predominantly white with some brown markings. Maybe Hound or beagle -- just look at those ears! About 10 pounds right now. DOB July 3rd.

Dalton, handsome Bengal boy
3 years   Male/neutered

Dalton is a handsome large boy, maybe 70 pounds Mastiff/mix who is a wonderful dog. An absolutely gorgeous orange/tiger-striped coat, but no tiger in his personality. He is very friendly with everyone, calm on a leash and already neutered.

Johnny, speckled Beagle boy!
3 years   Male

Johnny is a handsome medium-sized boy, this one's all Beagle! About 30 pounds and 3 years old. He seems to be a bit defensive about his stature -- he growls at bigger dogs to make sure they don't try to take advantage of him -- he would likely get over that if we had more time with him at the shelter, or would easily get used to friendly big dogs in a home. Great with people and dogs his own size. Beautiful golden eyes and speckled coat.

Ellie, young Lab, playful and energetic
1 year   Female

Ellie is a fun and friendly young Lab, maybe 18 months old and 55 pounds. Still a lot of puppy in her, she is a bit rambunctious, but also happy and good with everybody. Some regular leash work and training in manners should be in her future, her sweet nature should endear her to her family while she learns.

Laura, pretty little lady
4 years   Female

Laura is a small-scale Lab/Border Collie-looking mix, maybe 45 pounds and 4 years old. She is very sweet and rather timid. Still learning to come out of her shell with us, surrendered because her owners just didn't want her any longer :-(. Loves a belly rub and other versions of affection. Walks fine on a leash and fine with other dogs.

**Rescue pending** Riley, cute little girl!
2 years   Female

Riley is a charming little girl, maybe Hound/Terrier mix, about 40 pounds and 2 years old. Perfect "Petey-eye", she is black with a white face and one black eye patch. Friendly and outgoing, seems to be good with everyone. Loves to give kisses. Surrendered by a family that was moving and couldn't take her with them.

Bell, beautiful blue Pit Bull
4 years   Female/spayed

Bell is handsome big girl, a perfectly blue Pit Bull Terrier with a very unfortunate ear-cropping. Doesn't seem to phase her, she is friendly and wiggly and likely spayed though we have no proof. Around 65 pounds and maybe 4 years old. She was picked up as stray, but neighbors say she was abandoned when people moved away. Poor girl -- such a sweet personality!

Pepper, friendly Heeler/mix
7 years   Female

Pepper is an older girl, maybe 7+ years and a bit hefty -- guessing 60 though she's not very tall. She appears to be spayed. A Blue Heeler/mix, she is mostly black with a speckled stripe on her nose and chest. Friendly and calm temperament, seems good with other dogs too. She was surrendered for chewing the siding on her house.

Griffin, beautiful female Shep/mix
6 years   Female

Griffin is a surrendered female Shepherd/mix. Friendly and good with other dogs, can be careful with new people, but is learning to assume we are all friends now that has met many different volunteers, male and female. She was surrendered by mom who was looking after her for daughter and daughter won't come get her back as promised. Too energetic for the senior mom to handle, so she needs a new home. 6 years old and around 65 pounds.

Daphne, sweet young mama dog
3 years   Female

What a difference 2 weeks of food can make! Mama Daphne was found emaciated with two pups getting all of the benefit of her nutrition. Filling out and looking better every day now, her pups are ready to be weaned and she is ready to never look back! She is sweet as can be, maybe 3 years old and approaching 45 pounds. Friendly with all, except for cats.

Baxter, bouncing Hound dog
3 years    Male

Baxter is a handsome and bouncy Black and Tan Coonhound, around 3 years old and 50 pounds. Another one who could use some training, he has been good with other dogs and people too -- just bouncy and a bit of a handful on the leash.

Sadie, 3 yr old Rott/mix
3 years   Female

Sadie is a girl with a checkered past. Surrendered for being dog aggressive, she needs a safe place to land -- probably as the only dog. She has been getting better and better with other dogs now that she has been at the shelter a few weeks. The white flecks on her face aren't mud -- that is part of her natural coloring. She's about 3 years old and 50 pounds, Rottweiler/mix.

Susannah, beautiful young Lab/mix
1 year   Female

Susannah is a young and beautiful girl, likely 1 year old and around 50 pounds. Loves everyone (canine and human), tons of energy, and a gorgeous blonde body of fur! She's ready for an energetic family to share her life with.

Lucy, pretty Lab/mix
4 years   Female

Ethel and Lucy were surrendered together. Son went into the service and Dad dumped his dogs at the pound. They are a bit scared of their new situation, but very sweet girls. Friendly with people and other dogs, just a little scared of the new situation they've been thrown into. Around 4 years old and 65 pounds they appear to be Lab/mixes. Lucy's head is more square and she has black splotches on her tongue.

Ethel, pretty Lab/mix
4 years   Female

Ethel and Lucy were surrendered together. Son went into the service and Dad dumped his dogs at the pound. They are a bit scared of their new situation, but very sweet girls. Friendly with people and other dogs, just a little scared of the new situation they've been thrown into. Around 4 years old and 65 pounds they appear to be Lab/mixes. Ethel's face is more narrow, both ready for belly rubs and reassurance.

Linus, 4 yr old handsome Hound
4 years   Male

Linus is a maybe 4 year old Hound/mix, about 65 pounds who was surrendered after his owner passed away. He was very sad at first but has come out of his shell, a very bouncy fellow looking for a new family. Very strong, but walks fine on a leash. Friendly with people and loves playing with other dogs.

Charity, friendly red/white Am Staff/mix
5 years   Female/spayed

Charity has a short history of not being good with other dogs, though she has behaved like a model citizen with us. And she found a friend, another adult female, so maybe she just got a bad rap/rep:

Friendly with people of all sizes she has met with us. Already spayed, and micro-chipped. She is about 5 years old and 50 pounds.

Jeff, big ol' cutie!
4 years   Male

Jeff is a big boy, maybe 80 pounds and 4 years old, looks like a Boxer/Shepherd mix. He has the cutest underbite that shows off some snaggly bottom teeth. Loves people, especially giving hugs. Can be ok with other dogs, but has shown some dominance in certain circumstances.

Percy, handsome young boy
2 years   Male/neutered

Percy is a pretty Am Staff/mix, tan all over with a black muzzle. Full of energy, Percy is probably 2 years old and 60 muscular pounds. A great big head with a great smile! Loves all people, has become more mellow the longer we've had him, friendly with other dogs too. Really good with kids, including babies!
