Alfie is a 5 month old Shepherd mix of some sort!! He is so adorable and we just love him! He weighs about 40 lbs,
is neutered and not quite housebroken yet. No news on cats, as we do not have any. Alfie loves to play with all of the other
dogs and has lots of energy. He was
hanging out around a dumpster for several days, was very thin, and no one
ever claimed him. This cutie will
make someone such a fun pet.
Lobo is a gorgeous, three year old, purebred, Alaskan Malamute
with one blue eye and one brown. He
is neutered, up to date on shots, and weighs about 50 lbs. We have NO information on cats so pass on
him if you are worried. He is fine
with dogs of all sizes, so far. His
life was spent on a logging chain and spike collar and yet, he is still
gentle and loving.
Barkley is a Great Pyrenees mix (maybe some Anatolian). He weighs about 70 lbs,
and is neutered, 4-5 years old, heartworm negative, and up to date on
shots. He has been living in the
woods for a month or so and his owner made no attempt to find him. He was rescued and brought here and we
have some information, but not all. A video shows him sniffing a cat,
but not interested. He is ok with
other dogs but is protective behind a fence. He is leash trained, sits on command,
gentle with people and extremely well behaved in the house as he does
not chew up anything. Not sure on housebreaking but is very close. All in all, he is a great dog.
Milo is an
interesting combination. He is part Border Collie, part Heeler and part Staffie. Milo came to us from a small,
overcrowded pound in another state.
He had been incarcerated for months and was "losing
it." The staff loved him and
worked hard to get him transferred as their shelter does not have adoptions
and/or people coming to look at dogs.
Milo was in a tough spot.
Fast forward...I caved and took him here. He was on tranquilizers and when they
wore off, I contemplated putting him back on them but decided 50 acres and
two ponds would have to do their magic, and they have. Milo is calming down
nicely, there is no aggression and he plays well with other dogs. He has a
bad habit of trying to grab his leash out of your hand and run away, playing. He definitely needs a home where the
people have energy and time to play with him. He will chase and ball and bring it back
to you til the cows come home. Milo weighs about
50 lbs, around 8 months old, is
neutered and heartworm negative. Isn't he gorgeous????
On medical hold (see below)…
Gage is a one year old, neutered, male, 50 lb,
housebroken Pit/Lab mix. He is
playful but settles down quickly and is great with kids, cats and other
dogs. Gage was rescued, adopted out
and suddenly the kids announced they didn't like him for no particular
reason, so he was brought back. We
feel so sad for him as he is a wonderful dog
and deserves a loving home.
Tanner is a year old Rottweiler/Lab mix. He is quickly becoming
our favorite dog. Tanner is a year
old, weighs about 50 lbs and is housebroken. He loves kids and all dogs and plays
energetically, but appropriately with other dogs. He loves the water and running and
playing, but settles down perfectly in the house. Most evenings we find him curled up
asleep on the sofa or recliner. He
had beautiful, soulful eyes...how could any family resist him?
Previously: Tanner is just a year and a half old and probably
part Rottweiler/Lab. He is gentle with kids and submissive with other dogs.
However, he cannot be around chickens! He weighs around 50 lbs and is neutered but owner says he is not totally
housebroken. Tanner's owner is going through a divorce and unable to keep
him, but he deserves a great and permanent home!!
Bentley and Scruffy
and Scruffy (right) are two of what we call the "Freedom
Five." They were in a condemned
house for months on end, with a vat of dry food and water full of
rats. Needless to say, it was a
nightmare life. But we have had them
here for two months and they are adjusting well. Bentley is probably a Fox Hound mix, 40 lbs, neutered and probably not housebroken. Scruffy is some sort of male, Wirehaired
Terrier mix, 40 lbs, neutered and probably
not housebroken either. They are
loving and sweet but not young. We
are guessing their ages to be around 6 or 7 years old. Both would be fine in the country or just
a quiet life with a family who will love them. They do not have to be together! Please consider one of them as you will
be adopting a true rescue.
Lily is a Pit Bull mix and will never be very large. Now she
weighs about 38 lbs and is probably full grown.
She must have had one parent who was a small/medium sized dog. Lily
is a beautiful lavender color, loves everyone and is good with kids, cats
and other dogs. She is housebroken
and energetic, but well behaved. We
think she is gorgeous!
Previously: Meet Lily, the cutest Pit Bull puppy in the
world!! She is 4 months old and
weighs about 15 lbs and will always be
small. We do not know what she is
mixed with, but probably a small breed.
She has gold eyes and a lavender coat, is spayed and working on
figuring out being housebroken. Lily
is being fostered with several other dogs and cats and loves everyone. She is adorable and gentle, but
playful. We vote her cutie pie of
