Bonnie is a five year old happy girl with a warm and friendly personality. She wakes up excited and ready to play. She is fairly high energy, loves to run around in the yard and really enjoys having another dog to play with. Her favorite game is…of course…fetch 🎾!
Bonnie is a great companion. After play time she is calm and happy just to be near you. She loves to snuggle on the couch while you watch Netflix and sleep in bed with you at night. She is very affectionate and loves to give hugs and kisses.
Bonnie knows some basic commands. She is getting used to walking on a leash but does pull. Bonnie would benefit from additional training but she is very treat motivated and eager to please. Bonnie has full run of the house. She is super friendly with people and likes attention. She has played happily with medium to large dogs but she hasn’t been with small dogs or cats so unknown how she would do. A fence is a must.
If you would like to meet Bonnie, please email your four page adoption application to email@example.com.
ADOPTER NEEDED! Meet AMAZING Jax! This SWEET 3 yr old boy spent his entire life in a crate- only getting out to use the bathroom [😩] . When he was finally surrendered we weren’t sure how he would react to “life on the outside” but this FANTASTIC boy has done SO well! Jax is a medium to high energy boy with all the wonderful lab traits-he loves to fetch, swim and be close to his family! He needs a home that loves to exercise and play with their pup and has a fenced backyard for him to run and explore. Trips to the lake or a pool would be a definite plus.
From Jax’s foster- Jax is a handsome, crazy cute, and cuddly purebred Chocolate Labrador Retriever. Naturally his favorite thing is to retrieve tennis balls! Jax is a happy affectionate and loyal companion who loves everyone he meets. He walks really nicely on a leash. He is very intelligent and highly trainable. Jax is eager to please and can read other dogs' cues when they don't want to play. He loves to please his humans and has no issues with sharing meal time, treats, and bones with other pups. He is fast, playful, and VERY energetic. Jax was rescued and is currently learning the ropes with 2 other pups in the house. He has a silly and good-natured personality. Jax knows basic commands like sit and shake, and he comes when called. He also listens when told no. He loves to swim in the lake and would be a great hiking companion. Jax is clever and can even open barn doors to a pantry. It is recommended to crate him when left alone as he tends to get into things and is working on his counter surfing with success. Jax enjoys snuggling in bed at night if allowed and sleeps all night. He will also sleep snuggled in his dog bed in the bedroom as well.
To meet Jax, please email your four page adoption application to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
ADOPTER NEEDED!!! BEAUTIFUL Cocoa
Cocoa lives up to her name and is as sweet as a box of chocolates! She is crate/house/obedience trained and knows many commands.
Like your average almost 2 year old lab, she enjoys chewing up toys, always has a ball in her mouth, and is full of energy. She will fetch for days and follow you around everywhere! She bonds easily with anyone she meets, but has shown a preference for women. While we haven't had the chance to go swimming, she seems to love water and constantly tries to eat it out of the garden hose. At night, she is happiest with a ball and her bed as long it's near you!
She's a super flexible dog and would be fine at home while owners are at work or school.
She is leash reactive when meeting other dogs and would benefit from training to work on that. Best correction for now is to change direction to avoid interaction. Even though she struggles with this, she is great off leash with other dogs. She is not the best at reading cues from other dogs so would do best with a more submissive dog.
To ADOPT, please send your completed 4 page application to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
ADOPTER NEEDED! SAMMY UPDATE! Sammy is doing so GREAT in his foster home! He is now house and crate trained, he knows lots of commands and he is SUPER FRIENDLY with all humans and dogs of all sizes [❤] He LOVES car rides and is very good out at the dog bars. Sammy still has lots of one year old puppy energy so he needs an active home ready to exercise him and continue his positive training. Because he really doesn't know his own size and would knock them down, we recommend only children over 12 for this HAPPY boy. He is also able to leap over 4 to 5 foot fences so this FUNNY guy needs a home with a privacy fence or an active family in a townhome or condo. He will bring so much laughter and joy to his new home!
Meet Sammy!! This handsome one year old boy spent thirty four days in boarding but no one came looking for him. He is the total lab package with a super friendly and endearing personality. We think he is house trained because he kept his suite clean in boarding. Sammy needs a fenced yard and an active home where he can get exercise and training.
To be considered for adoption, please email your four page adoption application to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN MEETING A DOG, WE ASK THAT YOU START WITH AN ADOPTION APPLICATION (see link). The application helps us get to know you better, so that we can match you with the right dog.
We have three ADORABLE five month old puppies that ended up in the shelter from a neglect case. Tigger, Minnie, and Ingrid may be very skinny but have the most awesome personalities. They are VERY HAPPY and love everyone they meet. Sadly, Tigger was found with wire tied to his mouth and he still has the scars. All puppies are in foster homes with other dogs and immediately wanted to play. The puppies are getting lots of TLC and will be ready for their forever homes soon.
We are currently taking applications.
UPDATE FROM TIGGER'S FOSTER MOM
Someone definitely started potty training these little ones. That or just a fast learner! No accidents. He also already knows Sit, Down, No and very good recall with his name. Has been a favorite in the neighborhood and OUR DOG loves him too!
To adopt, please email your completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
FOSTER OR ADOPTER NEEDED! Meet SUPER BEAUTIFUL, 1 year old, 65 lb Josie [😍] Josie and her brother were found running loose and taken to the shelter where NO ONE CAME FOR THEM! [😓] We suspect this dynamic duo had been living in a backyard and were either dumped or just left to roam. Thank goodness they were not hit by a car or picked up by a bad human....Both of these fantastic pups are SOOO SWEET and FUN LOVING! But both of them will need to learn all of their house and leash manners. While they will require a little work in the beginning, (basically they are both BIG puppies) these two are LEGIT diamonds in the ruff [💎] [🐕] and will be AMAZING companions to the people willing to spend some time on positive training! (ALSO - please forgive the long tongues in the photos as it was over 100 degrees when they were taken!)

JACE UPDATE! Jace is doing GREAT in his foster home! His fosters report he is fully house trained and has finally learned that the crate is not a bad place at all. This GORGEOUS boy is really sweet, super smart and very food driven! He is quickly learning commands and although he is energetic, once his energy is out he LOVES nothing more than to be by your side. Jace is truly a velcro dog. He is getting better every day with his leash walking but is still pretty strong so potential adopters need to keep that in mind. He ADORES playing with the other dog in the house! He will still bark at new things until he realizes they are not so scary. Basically he is a silly, sweet and sometimes clumsy one year old boy! )
To ADOPT Jace, please email your completed 4 page application to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Meet big ole SUPER SWEET, FRIENDLY Moose! This WONDERFUL 5 yr old boy made his way to us all the way from KY. After more than two months in the county animal control, the shelter staff loved him so much they reached out to us begging for help. Now, the poor baby is stuck in boarding! He wants to give you all the LOVE he has stored up in his happy soul but will flinch sometimes if you make some sudden movements [😭] He is VERY treat and toy motivated and is also super interested in the water and will chase the ball. With just a LITTLE patience, this big HANDSOME boy is going to be such a WONDERFUL family addition! Moose is good with other dogs and crate trained. We do not know about cats. Due to his size, Moose is appropriate for children over 12. Must have a fenced yard. PLEASE HELP US GET MOOSE INTO THE LOVING HOME HE DESERVES!!

COURTESY POST FOR A RESCUE FRIEND! TO LEARN MORE, PLEASE CONTACT THE NUMBER/EMAIL BELOW!!
Raven is a 2 year old Lab mix found as a stray. It was found that she had an eyelid birth defect. Thankfully, it was just recently repaired, and she is living pain free now! She is the sweetest dog for her going through who knows how much in her life so far! She is very affectionate towards every person and dog she's met so far, and seems to be so grateful to be in a home setting again! She gets overly excited when she sees cats, but we will continue to test her around them over time. She's been great on car rides, going in the kennel, leash walking, and potty training so far! We're currently working on teaching her commands and basic manners since we're unsure if anyone has ever spent time to do that with her. She is also food motivated (currently working on getting her to gain a healthy weight), and she loves to play with rope toys, balls, & chewies. She's curious about everything and many times wants to be by your side to see what you're doing.
Please let us know if you are interested in learning more about her! She would make a great dog for any loving family!
