Never make assumptions! My mesmerizing eyes and intense look initially put people off. But over the last couple of weeks the iceberg has melted and I have warmed my way into almost everyone’s heart. They call me both Sammy and a Labrador-retriever mix, but I look so different depending on the angle you view me. From one side, I look like a lab. Turn my head slightly and I give off a “Boxer” vibe. From straight-on you may see some bully breed, and sometimes I look like a puppy!

At my young age, I haven’t learned how to walk nicely on leash. I’m strong and motivated to pull when I want to get somewhere, but the volunteers are working with me to improve my leash manners.
I love to interact with people, but I think I would overwhelm little kids. So adults and older kids is the best combination for me.

I haven’t met other dogs, but it’s more likely that I’d prefer the company of a non-aggressive female. I did meet some cats recently and took a good whiff. My reaction was one of mild interest. I think that a dog-savvy cat and I could co-habitate without much difficulty at all.

I take treats gently, know basic commands and am very happy to hang out in the grass with people who have come to know me.

I’m ready for my closeup! They say I’m so pleasing to cast your eyes upon, that the first instinct everyone has is to pull out their camera and snap away. From the front I am all bright eyeballs, and snout freckles — more often than not with a contagious grin in a soft, snowy blanket of fur. From the back I look like a sat in a mud puddle waiting for someone to rescue me! It’s amazing that I can be so sweet, calm and friendly considering how my life has been turned upside down. Hurricane Matthew tore my mom from her home and tore me from her heart when she found a place to live that did not allow the likes of me to join her. She tearfully relinquished me to the shelter knowing I would find another home, but I will never forget her. We spent 7 glorious years together and she taught me all the good stuff that dogs need to impress people. I’m housebroken and as a senior dog, much calmer than the younger generation. I’m in great shape for walking and just as content to hang out and snuggle. I know I have to sit for treats and go to bed when it’s dark outside. I have a soft mouth and love people of all ages including children. And everyone seems to love me back, which explains the almost ever-present smile on my adorable face. My-oh-my, how lucky I am to get another chance at a loving home. Come visit me...I’m Maya.

It was almost curtains for me. Another shelter deemed me unadoptable because I was very mouthy, jumping and snatching peoples’ sleeves. Being such a young dog – still a puppy really – I could not get the resources I needed to temper my inner wild-child. But some people saw the warm, loving dog inside and whisked me away to give me a chance and I have improved dramatically. I’m growing up and learning a lot from all the volunteers. I am often the only dog that sits patiently at the front of my kennel waiting for my turn to go for a walk. I like many of the other dogs and have a bottomless capacity for play at this time in my life.
Not everyone is up for walking a lot, training, and playing with a young dog, but if my needs are met, I will be an super companion for that kind of person or family.

With my piercing golden eyes, boxy snout and rich, mocha coat, I am a beautiful specimen. Not too big or too small, I’m about 40 lbs and that’s all muscle. I have exhibited my athleticism by climbing out of my 6-foot-high enclosure, but have learned that’s a no-no and now have a lid on my kennel so I don’t try it again. The bottom line is that a normal fenced yard would be a piece of cake for me to escape, but I wouldn’t want to leave if someone was with me. I want to be with people – not out on my own and certainly not stuck in a kennel all day.

One of the funniest things about me is how I play with a giant plastic ball. I’m relentless with this – my favorite toy, and you can take it with me if you adopt me. It will make you laugh out loud.
Please visit and look into my hypnotic eyes for a little while and I guarantee, you won’t want to look away.

My life has really turned around! I can’t believe how lucky I was to be brought to the shelter – or should I say Shangri la? My life before this warm kennel, full tummy and fresh water was living outside chained to a tree with a frozen bowl of ice. My company was Trent who was chained to another tree, but without anything else to do, we got on each other’s last nerve. I’m happy to report that Trent was recently adopted. I’m really hoping for the same for me.

Nobody thought I was much to look at when I first arrived. I had mange and worms, but that’s all behind me. My soft brindle coat and white muzzle give me that dignified boxer-mix look. I’m about 9 years old which makes me a breeze to walk and hang out with. I adore being around people and my tail tells the story. I get tail wag fatigue from wagging it in a circle non-stop when I’m with people. My soft mouth and gentle ways have surprised everyone because I look like a big bruiser. Because I’m so beloved by all here, I get so many walks that they tucker me right out!

I have walked with some of the girl dogs here and have been a true gentleman. It would be nice to have a girl dog to live with but if I only have people, I’m good with that.

My car-riding skills have been exemplary even if it had to be a trip to the vet to prove it. I have been keeping my kennel clean meaning it’s likely I’m housebroken even though I was never in a house.

A lot of people are leery of older dogs like me, but I can give you a few years of wonderful if you give me the chance.

IThey call me the love machine. My round edges and plump stuffing make me the perfect hug-ready dog And I eat it up — leaning in for more affection and mugging happily for the camera. Not only am I an ideal companion for almost anyone, I’m a stunning specimen as well. No designer could have splashed me more strategically with inky black on my predominantly white coat. I am a duotone, American bull dog mix between 1 and 2 years old, built like a tank, with a personality that brightens everybody’s day.

Yes, I can throw my weight around but I’m getting better on leash every day and will sit lickety-split on command. I prefer cooler temps but nothing stops me from going for a walk. I have been very good in the company of many other dogs, but I don’t care for cats.
If you are looking for a lover — I’m your girl.

You probably never heard of a Dutch Shepherd. But believe it or not, that’s what I am and a beautiful specimen at that with my brindle fluff and smoky mask adorned with deep brown eyes.

I came from another shelter where I was picked up as a stray covered with green splatter marks. Apparently, I was paint-ball target practice for some truly rotten individuals. But I cleaned up so well and am still putting my faith in people despite my ordeal.

As a shepherd, my size is large, but since I’m a girl, not as large as some of those big, burly boy shepherds. They estimate my age around five but you would never call me retiring. Fit of figure and full of bubbling energy, my work is ahead of me, breaking in a new family and keeping them active and healthy.

I like some of the dogs I’ve met since I arrived, but I have not had a chance to meet a cat in person, so it's hard to tell how I might react.
My love of people, particularly the volunteers who take care of me and walk me every day, is clear. And so far nothing seems to scare me except the thought of having to live in a shelter forever. Surely that will not happen to a beautiful girl like me.

I’m superdog, Maxwell. At my young age — all of a year old — I still have those little puppy dog gears turning inside of me. That puppy engine drives me to be playful without restraint. Just about everything makes me happy. It’s all new and wonderful and nothing scares me at all.

I like some of the dogs, but people are my favorite playmates. Jumping on them and pawing at them are some of my cool moves and I can’t quite figure out why they want me to stop doing that! It’s all play even if I am a 65-pound awesome German shepherd mix with the cutest face and sweetest eyes.

I love to go on walks and am happy to sit lickety-split for a tasty morsel. I’m a quick study and will learn to earn more treats. My dream family would be active and interested in walking, jogging and training me. It does not matter what age they are and kids are included in my affection for people, but I might knock a tiny one over during one of my happy dances.

I met a nice older shepherd recently and it looked like we weren’t going to hit it off, but after a while, I was crawling to her on my belly asking her to like me. She snubbed me a picked someone else!

I was the most adorable 8-month old puppy when I was adopted, but I’m back as a handsome young adult. My former owner moved back with is mother, was gone all day to work and left me in a crate alone without anything to do. He could not even afford my annual vaccinations.

It’s probably better that I’m Roman around back here, being prepped for a new home where I’ll get the mental and physical attention that I crave. Just shy of 2 years old, I am super-fit, and will sit for even the most meager treats. But I love to romp and play like every dog my age. I’m not built for speed, but I am for love.

I briefly roomed with a female dog and we got along just fine. I am not crazy about the boy dogs, but I don’t pay much attention to them. I seem a little scary in my kennel to some who don’t know me well. The volunteers have discovered that my seeming bluster is all bluff and that I’m quite the sweetheart when taken outside. More exercise would be the perfect recipe for me to quickly settle into a new home. I am too young, vital and social to be left all day, so my wish is to re-home with an active family who walks, jogs and wants to spend time with a loyal, loving — and still adorable — guy like me.
