I’ve been here for a while now and have met a lot of people of all ages, but for some reason I just am not the dog that they choose in the end. I'm just a wee bit too energetic for most people. OK...I admit it, I’m off the charts! But that makes me a good match for another equally energetic dog or even an older dog who needs a spark in their life and a kick in the butt!

Several dogs have some to meet me and I’ve welcomed each and every one with a twirl and a whirl and an invitation to give chase and play. Not once have a growled or snapped, because I make friends easily.

Kids have met me and although I spend the first few minutes searching for toys to toss around, I eventually notice the people and jump on most of them with enthusiasm. I’ve been told that is not always what they are seeking in a dog but I have a hard time staying calm at my very young age. I’m just a baby really...not even 2 years old and people are expecting me to be perfect when I spend most of my time in a cage. All it’s going to take is some exercise and training to harness my unbridled energy.

With my adorable looks and 40-lb size, I will catch your eye. I will also catch a tennis ball over and over again if you will come and take me to the play yard. In the meantime, I’ll be waiting for you.

I sat in a kennel for a year at another rescue, which is most of my life since I'm not even 2 years old. But I'm a lively, large lover boy who is desperate to be out of a shelter and in a real home. I'm a knockout physically with my freckled face, splotchy pink nose and fine physique. All I want to do is climb on laps and stick my muzzle into yours which gets me in trouble most of the time because I am 4 times the size of a real lap dog.

Even though I'm a young bruiser I'm not that hard to walk. You would be so proud to have me at your side like some elegant lion strutting my stuff. The volunteers get a huge kick out of my inquisitive expressions and quest for attention. In my kennel (my prison) I'm like a jumping jack, springing up and down with anticipation as to when my next outing with a volunteer will be.

As an American bull dog mix, my ideal family would be an active one with people who love to walk, jog, hike and cuddle of course. My giant head takes both hands to pet and I'm not shy or skittish with anyone. I'm too big and clumsy to be around little kids, but older ones would be okay. I could even enjoy the company of another active female dog, but I'm quite enough dog on my own, too. So consider getting me on track to leave, because I'm ready willing and able to be your most loyal follower.

You don’t see many dogs like me around. Remember Spuds McKenzie? Have you seen the Target dog with the red bulls-eye? That’s the breed that I am...a stout bull terrier with the egg-shaped head, pointy ears, and adorable pinkish snout.

Not only am I an eye-catcher, I’m also super-friendly with people and love to be cuddled. There’s nothing tepid or skittish about me. I’ll be the first one to greet people and I never say no to a brisk walk. At about 45 lbs and approximately 3-years-old, I’m a catch for adults who want a single dog that will dote on them. I never have accidents in my kennel even though I can’t go outside to go to the bathroom as often as I’d like, so I think you would be very happy at how quickly I would be potty-trained in a new home.

My preference is to be the only dog, but I visited with the cats briefly and it’s possible I could live with a calm and confident cat.

It’s a mystery why I’m still waiting for a home. My age, size and loving disposition should be all anyone needs to choose me.

As one who has been abandoned, I have developed some trust issues. I was about 9 months old when I arrived at the shelter after my owner left me with a friend and never returned. My life, though short, has not been filled with the usual training, exercise, and love that most “dog people” think about and provide when they look for a new companion.

The volunteers were surprised by my outbursts at them when they stood at my kennel. They learned to take it slow and once I got to know each of them, I was the adorable angelic girl they all saw deep within me.
I have not been properly introduced to many new things and am easily spooked, but one by one I am learning all about the many things and people around and am getting better every day.

My bald little butt, due to flea dermatitis, is now covered with a velvety black coat. My petite square face is irresistible when I lock eyes with people and I sit at the speed of light when offered a treat. I may not be the perfect dog for everyone, but for people who are willing to take the time to get to know me, I’m as lovable and darling as you will find anywhere. I have played with some of the dogs here and have made many volunteers smile and laugh.

Do I look worried to you? I guess I am a little bit because this is the 2nd time I have been returned. My super-shy, submissive demeanor is why I was chosen in the first place, but then after a week or two some people are discouraged that I am not climbing into their laps to be cuddled or tossing a toy in the air. As a border collie mix, it is quite common to be skittish and that’s the best word for how I react to an outstretched hand that wants to pet me.

Surely you have heard about dogs described as “fight or flight”? Well in my case, it is the latter. There is no “fight” in me at all which makes me easy to place with kids, dogs and even cats. In fact, one of the cats in the first home I was at briefly picked on me!

My excellent qualities include being house-broken, safe around children and friendly with other dogs. I might even fare better with a confident dog in my corner who could show me how great it is to be petted, hugged and showered with affection. It will take a knowledgeable and patient owner to coax me out of my shy shell but I hope it happens soon.

They originally named me “Sissy” but that name doesn’t seem to be one that I should be stuck with since I’m trying so hard to learn how not to be one.

I’m a very lucky dog because the police stepped in to save me from an abusive owner. Another young dog and myself had been witnessed by neigh-bors being beaten and strangled and they called the police.
When I got to the shelter, I was very skinny and I gobbled food so fast, they couldn’t remember if they had fed me or not. Now with a few pounds gained and looking gorgeous, I am happy to sit for treats and I’m waiting for a chance at a new home and family to love.

At only around 8 months old, I’m a big puppy with beautiful markings that hint at shepherd and mastiff.

I go nuts every morning when the people come in because I’m so frantic from being in a kennel for so long. I jump and squirm for my breakfast and to go outside and relieve myself. I can’t “hold” it for those 10-12 hours and my kennel is soiled which is awful for me to be around, but I know I could be potty-trained quickly if I only had a normal daily dog routine.

I’m a teensy bit shy when I meet new people. but that doesn’t last long. My dream owner would be an active person or family who wants to go for long walks, jogs and spend time teaching me all the things a young dog needs to know. Being a quick study, it won’t take me very long at all.

Smiling in the face of adversity because people here care about me. At around 8 years old, I can still mix it up with my best buddies, Prince and Ruby even though we are all waiting for new homes. Our Mom got very sick and passed away and we are back at the shelter where she took each of us in when we were at our most unhappy and vulnerable.

Our 4-pack included Sissy who did go home with a new family recently. We are all senior dogs who are housebroken and comfortable around other dogs. Prince is the shyest one but we are one grand trio to behold on a walk together! I’m Sadie with the dense black and brown coat and distinctive widow’s-peak. I’m a little overweight from inactivity.

It would not be surprise to look at me lying around and think I’m a little depressed at the huge change in my life, but I’m doing the best I can to adapt. It wouldn’t be a stretch to call me a couch potato, but I have been enjoying the play yard romps and belly scratches that the volunteers provide.

For an easy dog who does not require a ton of exercise – pick me to be your gal pal.

Sure, I’m small, but what an athlete I am! At about 18-months old, my jumping skills are peak. In the blink of an eye, I can leap silently from floor to table or onto your lap. Tall fences are no challenge for me. I can climb over and dig under them, so the best home for me is where I will get plenty of face time with people who are active. I love walking, running, and learning new things. I’m very treat oriented which makes me very trainable. I used to be scared and skittish, but that is no longer the case. I adore people including kids. I was in a home with another big dog and 2 small children. It was my grabbing the cat’s tail that landed me back at the shelter.

At my age, I cannot be the last thing on the list because I have a lot of energy, enthusiasm and a need for affection and attention that requires time and interest. I would be great at agility training.

With my wire-haired tresses and pricked ears, I am beyond adorable. My looks combined with my antics remind some of the flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz, but you don’t have to be a wizard to make me part of your family. You just need to understand that terrier mixes like me need more than just food, water and shelter.

I have been trained to walk with a Halti and am very good at staying by your side when it is used. On a regular collar, I can pull a bit, but at a scant 20 pounds or so, it isn’t going to take your arm off.
To all those active dog-loving, trail-walking, morning-jogging people out there...please give me a chance to show you I’m a gold-medal choice.

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.
