Cash - 90 lbs
2-3 Years   Male

Whats up, my name is Cash. I'm a big boy looking for a big farm to play on. I would be a great livestock protection dog, or even a good friend as I lived inside with 2 other dogs most of my life. You have to get to know me, but when you do I am the sweetest boy ever. I've been at the Jefferson shelter since 12/20/2021...

Donatello - terrier/pit mix - 35 lbs

Mouser - husky mix - 45 lbs
3-5 years   Male

I am a unique guy. I watch what goes on around me, but I tend to stay by myself. I'm not that interested in treats and often leave some of my food uneaten. I am named for the area in which I was found, not because I catch mice.

Spotty - Blue Tick/Hound Mix - 57 lbs
1 yr    Male

If you're looking for a big ball of energy, look no further! Your undivided attention is what I'm after. I have the ears of a hound, but my body is covered in black spots like a blue tick.

Ranger - Chow/Leonberger Mix - 44 lbs
1-3 yrs   Male

I have the most luscious, long coat. I'm also very soft like a cloud. My favorite thing is giving hugs and kisses. As of right now, I don't get along well with other dogs but I am working on that! I'm a medium size, and won't get any bigger.

Remi - American Pitbull Terrier Mix - 30 lbs.
1.5 yr    Female

I am a very outgoing and energetic gal. I'm fairly small for my age and probably won't get much bigger. Going for long walk, playtime, and treats are my favorite things about life.

Leo - Husky/Spaniel Mix - 64lbs
1-3 years   Male

Very vocal guy but will calm down in the right home. Does great on a leash. He's a ladies man so he's quite timid towards men at the moment. Very beautiful blue eyes with a red/white short coat of hair. Leo is all about the toys. He loves to play and will try to turn most anything into a toy.

Destiney - American Pitbull Terrier - 35 lbs.

I am a high energy, loving girl. I do not enjoy being cooped up in a kennel, I prefer being free.

1 Year   Female

This sweet girl is super timid towards strangers at the moment. She enjoys belly rubs and snacking on french fries! Still very young and would be very trainable after she got to know you.

Tater Tot - American Pitbull Terrier Mix - 48 lbs
1-3 yrs   Male

Pugsley - pug mix - 45 lbs

Dennis - Catahoula Mix - 65 lbs

Ruby - Boxer Mix - 55 lbs.
1-3 yrs    Female

6-9 months    Male

Albert - Staffordshire Terrier Mix
7 yrs    Male

Alberts the name, but friends call me Alby. I have some health issues that I'm working on currently. I do well with other dogs, walk good on a leash, and eat treats like it's nobody's business. Pretty hefty guy right now but with constant exercise, I'll shed the pounds in no time. If you'd like to come check me out, visit the shelter today!

Molly - Leonberger Mix
