No aggression about anything and physically seems quite healthy. Contact

1 yr   neutered male

Herb or "Herbie" is a young active dog. He would make an excellent exercise buddy for an avid runner, walker or hiker. He also loves to play with other dogs and will use them as a pillow when it's naptime but he would be fine as an only dog as well. He is crate trained and has done pretty well with potty training. Loves to play on agility equipment and catches on quickly! If interested in Herb, fill out an application on

1-2 yrs   spayed female

Chunky girl! Probably close to 40-=45 pounds. Turned in due to illness in the family. Probably a housedog.

Loves to be petted and will just melt into you if you start stroking her! walks ok on a leash and loves that attention too! Contact

"Spencer/Sprog" lab/pyranese mix
8 months    neuterd male

What a great young man! Everyone that meets him LOVES him. He is going to be a BIG boy! He is already over 80 pounds! He is currently learning house manners and sleeping in a crate but his temperament is already perfect! A little clumsy on a leash but that can be trained easily. Absolutely the softest fur and the softest eyes you'll ever see! Great with other dogs too. Just learned that he LOVES water! Contact

"Esa" - Husky
1 yr   Spayed female

Esa is a great looking young Husky. Petite boned and good on a leash. Like a typical husky, she will need a secure fenced environment! Very clean so someone had taken care of her at some point. Sits, rolls, paw shake! Does fine with other dogs but wouldn't recommend a cat environment! Fully vetted and ready to find her special place! Contact

"Dot" Walker Coonhound
3 yrs   spayed female

Dot, Tree Walker Hound, was turned in since owner could no longer care for her. She seems like a nice girl. Has a soft expression! Absolutely lovely personality and loves to have her ears rubbed! About 3 yrs old. 53 pounds. Must have a fenced in yard. Needs to be fed alone.

"Theo" cur mix
9 months   neutered male

Theo has come a long way but is still learning to trust new situations. He was the less confident of the 2 siblings but once he is in a steady situation, he seems quite at ease. You put him into a new environment and he is still fearful but it doesn't take long for him to loosen up! He gets along fine with the other dogs in his foster home so far. Watches the cats but loses interest after awhile. He seems fine in a crate and seems to think of it as his safehouses. Doing OK on his housebreaking. Theo seems to have an initial fear of men and steers clear of the man of the household. He will tolerate being petted by a man but clearly, he would prefer to spend his time with the foster mom. After several days, he is now starting to sit beside him and takes treats from him. Walks on a leash and does pretty well. 40 pounds. Contact

"Opie" terrier mix
1 yr   neutered male

Opie has come so far since he came to us about a year ago! He is healthy and alert and ready for action! He loves to play but can be a bit rough so best with bigger, playful dogs. He is ok on a leash and wants nothing more than to be a part of a permanent family! About 40-45 pounds. Loves people! Contact
