Born on Valentine’s Day, I’m the very definition of a sweetheart. My brother Phil and I were surrendered by our owner who had to move to a place where big dogs aren’t allowed. I can’t help being big. I don’t really throw my weight around, although it does take a few minutes to get me calmed down for a nice walk because I’m so excited to go. Phil was adopted and I’m happy for him, but now it’s my turn and the waiting is driving me nuts!

I love people and people love me but not every-one wants a big dog. And I can’t help it that I’m big. Big is beautiful. Big means I don’t always need as much exercise as those lean, mean huntin’ and sportin’ dogs need. Don’t get me wrong...I’ll walk as far and as long as you like, but I’m also happy to nuzzle with you, sit and be stroked and hang out pool-side on a hot summer day.

As much of a beefcake that I am, my thick brindle coat gives me the regal carriage of a lion. At two years old, I have all the great qualities people want in a dog. I’m housebroken, know basic commands and look people in the eye with a soft and affectionate gaze that puts them at ease. Even when I look quite goofy, you can offer me treats and I take them like a gentleman.

I’m enough dog for any home, but could be paired with a calm and confident dog with the proper introduction. Cats are a different story. They get my dander up and I don’t think I would be a good choice for a home with cats.

I’ve done my time here, learned the ropes and this Journey-man is ready to move up to a new family.

My owner got sick and could no longer care for me and my brother, Max. At four years old, we ended up in a shelter awaiting a new person to adopt us, hopefully together since it seemed unlikely that Max, who is deaf, would be adopted on his own. And to mine and everyone’s surprise, Max was sprung a while ago and now it’s my turn.

I’ve been complaining about spending so much time in a kennel, and relish every opportunity to get out for a walk with volunteers even when it’s so hot. I just want to be with people. One of the volunteers has been taking me home for some sleep-overs at his house and it’s been such a stress-reliever. I get to sit in his chair like the queen of the house. He knows I’m housebroken and not going to chew anything, since I’m a grown up – not a puppy. I’m a little shy with new people. They surround me and stare at me and it feels overwhelming sometimes, but I’m still a good girl and let them pet me and even kiss my head.

I’m not hard to walk on leash and I like a lot of the dogs I’ve met. The company of other dogs has made losing Max a little easier. I’m even helping another scared dog come out of his shell bey walking with him. And when I visited with the cats, I was courteous and quiet.

Being an eye-catching bluetick coonhound, people are attracted to my unique good looks. They need to see how sweet and loving I am on the inside, too. All it takes is some time and patience to find that I am a great choice for so many families.

I was adopted as a 9-month old pup more than 2 years ago and I thought that would be the last I would see of a kennel, but I was so wrong. My owner died and I'm back waiting for my next chance at a home that I hope to call my last.

I have a lot of competition here. Being one of many bigger dogs, my chances are even worse since I'm a black dog. Even when I pose motionless for them, my photos just can't capture how sleek and diverse my looks are. At some angles you would swear I'm a boxer. My body will remind you of a greyhound, and mostly, I'm a black lab, the most popular breed and mix in dogs.

The volunteers know how smart I am — perhaps too smart for my own good. I managed to squeeze myself through a very narrow doorway in the horse barn when they took me there to play. But I didn't run far...I know where my meals come from. Aside from being a problem-solver, I also know the 3 main commands that command a smile from onlookers...sit, paw and down.

Twice recently I was at very dog-dense offsite events and was an absolute gem. Not being a huge fan of the butt-sniffers, I managed to keep my distaste under wraps. There were a lot of nice dogs that I met and thankfully no cats...not my thing! Now at 3 years old, housebroken and a fetching machine, keep me in mind, because "Sammy Can" bring more fun to your life.

Hi! I'm Big Ed ... Eddie to my friends and I have lots of friends here. They use words like “cool” and “chill” to describe my personality and they hang on for dear life when we're out for a walk, because I'm a BIG boy. I have pulling power but I'm not trying to drag you down. I just want to check everything out and I want company while I'm doing that. They have worked with me to slow me down. If I hear the word “stop”, I stop with my walker and wait till I hear “heel” to get moving again.

My golden eyes will meet yours with warmth and affection. My pink nose and lips form an adorable pucker of pleasure when people want to pet me. I take treats gently -- always sitting on command and offering up a paw. I know how things work! My girlfriend, Lilly and I were not living in a good situation. We were left alone for soooo long that sometimes the neighbor would have to come feed us. At about 5 years old, I show the young dogs what it means to be a gentleman with people. I don't jump on them and push them around. I wait for an invitation and when beckoned, I happily plop my head in laps for a good face massage. Although I might sniff at the counter where the doughnuts sit, I have manners and do not try to snatch them.

With a little bit of help, I could learn to walk nicely on leash and that would bring me to the brink of perfection. I now am not the biggest dog here. In fact, there are quite a few big dogs waiting for a home right now. Big dogs almost always wait longer. Big is not bad...big is beautiful!

Why the long face, you ask? I have had two strikes and am up to bat once again in searching for the right home.

There are some dogs I like and some I don’t (just like you) and the first time I left, the resident dog and I did not see eye to eye over food. I came back and then had a second outing with a family. There was a 2-year-old child and we got along famously. Unfortunately, the potty-training did not go well and they got frustrated with me and brought me back. Now that I’ve come clean, let me tell you about all the good stuff! I’m so affectionate and tolerant at being handled by all people, big and small. I adore being outside with my nose to the ground. I don’t jump up on people, mostly ignore other dogs and I’m drop-dead gorgeous.

When I visit with people in the volunteer trailer, I’m in heaven...even okay wearing a belly band to prevent an accidental squirt in my attempt to cover up those other dog smells.

Housebreaking should not be a problem for experienced dog owners and the volunteers will provide a lot of guidance. I’m in prime shape for active people who want a running companion by day and a cuddler at night.

I’m not much for treats or toys. I’d rather be with people exploring the world. You might be tempted to say I ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog, but an uber-sweet one for sure. When it comes to lovin’ — I rock. The best thing for me is to roll out of here with someone(s) who will love me, train me and help me be the best that I can be.

When it’s time to “Buddy Up” I hope you think of me. Having the most popular name for a dog has gotten me nowhere so far. I was in a foster home for a few months but my foster mom worked long hours and I was alone too much. I’m very good company — social, outgoing and loyal to a fault. Some other great qualities I possess include being potty-trained and walking well on leash.

There are some dogs I like and others I tolerate but I won’t be pulling your arm out to lunge at them. I don’t care that much. I can even live peaceably with a cat if the situation calls for it. I’m very flexible! Specifically, I am your basic, mid-size, middle-age, beagle-boxer mix with a little extra padding that I’m hoping to walk off. Maybe we can do that together.
