Auggie is a ten month old Anatolian Shepherd/Lab mix. He is almost 100 lbs and very laid
back. He is housebroken and gets
along well with other dogs but maybe no cats. Auggie is neutered and up to date on
shots and works well as an indoor and outdoor dogs. He is also gorgeous.
Murray is a one year old male, neutered, and housebroken Australian
Shepherd. He is slightly hard of
hearing and not blind, but his eyesight is limited. However, he gets along great with dogs
and cats and runs up and down stairs with confidence. Like many who have come from his
"situation," he was not socialized well and takes time to warm up
to people. However, he is beautiful
and sweet and will make the right family a great companion.
Odin is a happy year old Shepherd who is housebroken, neutered,
and loves everyone...cats and dogs and people!! However, x-rays h ave shown he has some
hip dysplasia and mildly floating knees.
What does this mean? He may have arthritis by the time he is four
but we are hoping moderate exercise combined with his youth will help this
problem get better. This is the sad
result of back yard breeders....the dog pays but the right family can
certainly know they will have a loving companion, if not physically
Burt and Ernie
are two Pekingese, maybe Shih Tzu, mixes...who knows. maybe purebreds. One is around five and one is around
two years old. They are
neutered, housebroken and super people friendly. They weigh around 15 pounds and have
gorgeous, fluffy coats. These two
are a bonded pair, maybe brothers, maybe dad and son. We think they will make fabulous
companions for some lucky family. Neither of them do any nipping and
absolutely no aggression with these two cuties!!!
We tried to
adopt Ebony and Ivory out as a bonded pair but it did not work. A wonderful family wanted them both, but
every time they tried to pet Ebony, Ivory would bite them! This went on for two hours and we all
tried everything, I finally decided they would have to be separated, to
give Ebony a chance. She has been
adopted and is doing so well and very happy. Ivory is still with us and now
she is integrating with the other dogs.
She is wonderful with us, I can pick her up... and cuddle and
she is fine, but she is not good with kids.
Plus, she nips if you reach down to pet her suddenly. The bottom line is she is perfect for
someone who does not have small kids or grandkids running in and out of the
house. Ivory weighs about twelve
pounds and is around 3-5 years old.
Ivory is a poodle mix. Please
call 785-256-2976 if interested in adopting. She is spayed and housebroken and cute as
a button. In fact, I may just change her name to Button!!!
We have one tan female and one tan male left. They are five
months old and have wonderful, gentle dispositions. Here is Ben (below),
the male. They are spayed
and neutered and up to date on shots. Dad is a purebred German Shepherd and mom
is a Terrier mix of some kind. At
this point they weigh about 30 lbs so are not going to be small!! The dispositions of all the pups are
wonderful, they are gentle and tend to be a bit shy but love everyone.
We have eleven beautiful puppies who will be up for adoption
around January 18th. They will be
spayed/neutered and will have had their first round of puppy shots. Mom is some
sort of Terrier mix, and dad is a purebred German Shepherd. The mom is gentle and loving and just about as sweet
as she can be. The pups are much like mom, laid back and gentle and
PLUMP!!! There are five tan boys and six brindle females!!!
Roy is an eight month old, male Boxer/Pit mix. He is smaller than he appears in this
picture, weighing around 42 lbs. Roy
is neutered and up to date on shots and is a real lover. When a dog first comes here, he has to be
introduced slowly so as to integrate into the pack. We always use caution with new dogs, but
Roy just fit in really fast. He is
friendly and wants to play with all of the other dogs. We do not foresee any issues
with beyond being a great, super and wonderful family pet.
Lyka is a 2 year old white, female, Australian Shepherd
mix. She is spayed and housebroken
and only weighs 32 lbs. Her owners
were going through a divorce and neither one could keep her. Lyka loves kids and gets along well with
other dogs. However, she is shy
around men and will warm up in time.
Lyka has a lot of energy so would need an active family. She settles down nicely in the house
which is a real plus. This girl is really beautiful!
took in four adorable dogs whose past is a bit murky. Their home consisted of jail, eviction
notices, poker games, saloons and dancing girls. All of the dogs, except one, are around a
year old and are just darling. They are sweet and loving and have been
inside dogs!! They have never been
to a vet until this week, and soon they will be totally up to date on
everything medical. We cannot answer
about housebroken yet, but it looks promising.
Marshall Dillon is the last of these cuties, still looking for
Dillon is the eldest of the gang...and therefore the wise
one. The other three go to him for
advice, which he dispenses sensibly.
He is probably around 6 or 7 years old, which is not really old for
a Chihuahua. The great thing is he
is so loving and gentle, and definitely not an ankle biter!! Dillon weighs about 7 lbs and adores being
around people, and sitting on laps!
Bonnie is a two year old, spayed, 50 lb, female, Red
Heeler mix. She is gentle, sweet and
housebroken. Bonnie gets along great with small children, cats and other
dogs. Bonnie has that wonderful
curled up smile, showing her teeth, when she meets you! She loves to play in the yard and is
enjoying her new found freedom from spending her life in a kennel.
