Bobo was rescued from a homeless person who could not take care
of him. He is soon to be
neutered, between 5-7 years old, totally housebroken and great with
little kids. He has a pleasant,
happy personality and really would make some family a wonderful companion. Bobo is larger than most cockers and
weighs about 40 pounds. He is not
fat, but a bigger purebred than most. He really needs his very own home!
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 adorable!!!
Max is an 8 month old, male, Lab/Anatolian mix. He is absolutely gorgeous, loves kids and
other dogs, BUT cannot be around cats or farm animals. This is fairly typical of his breed, but they make
wonderful pets. Max weighs almost
100 lbs, is housebroken, neutered and up to
date on his shots. His family adores
him but they live on a farm which is the
wrong place for this guy.
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 fabulous
Ike is a neutered, housebroken purebred Border Collie who is 5
years old. He gets along great with
kids and most other dogs. He has his
favorites, and the ones he does not like, he "bugs." He really needs room to run and to have
an owner familiar with Border Collie characteristics!
SCOUT is an 8
month old hound dog...maybe coonhound? She only weighs 40 lbs and is spayed and mostly housebroken. SCOUT 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 words?
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 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
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.
