Lebo (dumped in Lebo, Ks.) is a year old, male, Shepherd
mix. He is neutered, up to date on
shots, and only weighs 35 lbs. (He
looks bigger in the picture!) Lebo
has a lot of energy, loves to run and play with other dogs and gets along
fine with kids and adults. Lebo is
not housebroken yet, but he is smart, and anyone who works will him will be
able to train him fairly fast. We
will continue working on it here also.
He does well on a leash, but loves to run away from you when you
want to catch him. We think he is
Boomer is a year old mix of some sort! He appears to be a Lab, maybe English
Setter. He is a male, neutered, and
housebroken. Boomer is great with
kids and other dogs, BUT seems leery of men at first. He will bark and act very scary, but is
fine once he gets to know them.
He is great with women!
Boomer is about 70 lbs and very strong. Anyone who adopts him will have to
exercise him and be able to control him on a leash. I use a harness which seems to work
fine. He was in city shelter and not
doing well so we moved him here so he could exercise. Boomer needs
more socialization, but is really beautiful and will make someone a
Samantha is an 8
month old hound dog...maybe coonhound? She only weighs 40 lbs and is
spayed and mostly housebroken.
Samantha wandered onto a farm in Wichita and hung around. The couple loved her but could not keep
her and called us. She was very thin
when they found her, but she is fattening up now. Scout loves to play and is a total
goofball. She shows no aggression to
a person or animal at any time.
Hounds actually make wonderful family pets because of their
easy going disposition and loving nature.
One cannot help but love this little gal.
Zoey is the granddaughter of the famous "Rock Star"
in our book, Under A Kansas Sky!
She somehow ended up in the local pound and Honey's original owners
called me to bail her out. She
stayed there for a month and although a HUGE favorite, she did not get
adopted. She is a year old Pit mix,
spayed and housebroken of about 50 lbs, and gets along great with kids and
other dogs. So far she is behaving
herself with the cats in her foster home. Isn't she too cute for
Fiona has been
an amazing transformation since she came here. She had spent her three years locked in a
kennel, and she was not socialized upon arrival. Months later, she is
everyone's favorite. She is loving
and gentle, but still a bit submissive.
She walks on a leash well and appears to be housebroken. She is spayed, up to date on shots and
gentle with everyone. Isn't she gorgeous???
Sammy has been adopted. Check back for his Success Story!
Sammy is now 8 months old and
housebroken. He loves other dogs, is
fine with cats, energetic outside but settles down nicely inside. He has a gorgeous black, glossy lab coat
and weighs about 40 pounds. Sammy will be such a great companion for some
family.!! (he is neutered also!)
Sammy is a six month old Lab mix...and a live wire! He is only 35-40 lbs, neutered and
housebroken. Sammy gets along great
with dogs and cats (and kids) and likes to do the "high
jump!" He calms down nicely in
the house but is on the go outside.
We think he is a mix of a jumping jack, a kangaroo and a lab!! Throw a ball for him and he will bring it
back to you until the cows come home.
Dexter is a two
year old Retriever/Shepherd mix. He
is neutered, up to date on shots, weighs 65 lbs, and almost
housebroken. He is well behaved in
the house and never needs to be crated, he adores kids and other dogs, but
we have no information on cats. He
can jump a fence in a heartbeat! We think he would be great in the
circus. Why has he not gotten adopted? I think one of the reasons is he is
protective at our gate if strangers come and people want a dog to be super
friendly if neighbors stop by.
However, Dexter is great once he gets to know someone and lets our
staff in the gate with no problem. I
guess I am one of those people who feel safer with a protective dog, but
not everyone wants that. In
the meantime, he is waiting for his forever family. Surely they will
come along soon.
