Vinny - 13349A
This picture encapsulates our man Vinny perfectly. Ears askew...He's such a ham! Vinny has captured the hearts of many of the employees here at the shelter. This guy has been with us for about two months, and we're really rooting for him and trying to find him the perfect home. An American Pit Bull Terrier mix that was brought to us as a stray in mid-October, Vinny always aims to please. He sits on command, and loves to play with toys, sticks, leaves, and anything else he can find outside. He'll follow you to the ends of the earth just for a morsel of a biscuit. Though he may look a little tough and rough on the outside, he's truly a lover at heart. Because of his high energy, Vinny would do best in a home without children and where he's the only dog. Vinny's ideal companion would be someone who is an experienced dog owner, not afraid to be assertive. Our volunteers have been working hard with this guy, and the more he's socialized the better we'll be able to help him get placed with a loving family. Can you help us find Vinny a home?
Cassie - 11204A
Cassie is an absolutely gorgeous adult Labrador Retriever / American Pit Bull Terrier mix that has already been spayed. She has a shiny, golden coat that is so silky soft, and deep, kind brown eyes. Just take one look at Cassie, and you'll see the epitome of a faithful canine companion. Surrendered to the shelter in December, this loyal dog deserves a forever home and we at the Humane Society are determined to give it to her! Cassie's favorite activity is going for her daily walks. Wanna take her for a stroll? Swing on by!
Rocky - 13710A
When Rocky walks down the aisle between the kennels, you can hear "Eye of the Tiger" play in the background. But don't let his muscular and stocky exterior trick you. Most people are surprised to learn that this handsome boy is really a teddy bear at heart. All he wants is to make you happy! He loves going outside for his daily walks, and always greets guests with a wagging tail and his bright, shining eyes. Brought into the shelter as a stray at the end of December, Rocky has a handsome, brindle coat. This big guy would be absolutely content if you would just pet him all day long. He's so friendly! His favorite pastimes include watching the Rocky Balboa movies and running up and down steps. He'd be thrilled if you would just come to say hi. You'd make his day!
Morphius - 12594a
Morphius is a handsome, adult, neutered, male Hound / American Pit Bull Terrier mix found as a stray. He is very young and full of spunk, but has calmed down a lot since he has settled in at the shelter! Morphius loves his leash walks and goes crazy over squeaky toys, balls and any type of toy on the planet! Our volunteers absolutely ADORE this dog, and have been working very hard with him. He knows how to sit and is a very attentive listener. Morphius will do best in a home as the only pet and without small children. If you love to play and enjoy walks with your dog, Morphius may be the perfect dog for you! Morphius is just waiting to find his forever family. Will you help make this underdog's dreams come true?
UPDATE: A generous donor is giving the shelter money so that Morph can take obedience classes at Keystone Elite K9, LLC! He was a good boy to start, but now he's an even better dog! Keystone Elite K9 will also give two free classes to Morph's adopters, so they can keep up with his training!
Annie - 13769
"The sun'll come out tomorrow! Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow there'll be sun!" That's Annie's favorite song from Annie the musical! This sweet girl was just brought into the shelter at the end of January as a stray. She definitely has some German Shepherd in her, with a Shepherd body and head. But she doesn't have the long, long legs of a Shepherd. Rather, her legs are a little on the shorter, stockier side. We assume that she must be mixed with something. Annie is an adult dog with mostly black fur with a little brown mixed in. We don't know much about her, but we do know that she is one friendly dog who is willing to please! She always greets new friends with her tongue hanging out of her mouth and her tail wagging back and forth. Don't put off meeting Annie until "tomorrow"...Come and visit her today!
Simba - 13558a
This is Simba! Simba was surrendered to the shelter at the beginning of February and is ready to get free of the shelter. He's ready to go to his furever home! Simba is young, and still acts like a puppy sometimes. He's a grey Schnauzer/Dachshund mix. Isn't he too cute? Simba is a resource guarder, and is very protective of food. But don't let that fool you! He's a sweetheart! He just needs a family aware of his idiosyncrasies. We think that it would be best if he went to a home without children. You could watch The Lion King with him! It's his favorite movie!
Clint - 13797
Clint is one big dog! Brought into the shelter as a stray at the beginning of February, Clint is an adult Rottweiler with the black and tan markings typical of the breed. Clint has already been fixed, so he's all set to go to his new home. Clint isn't a big fan of the kennel, so he's ready to get out of the shelter and into a house with a loving and kind family who will care for him. Once Clint is out of his cage, he turns into a big, sweet teddy bear! Clint's ideal companion would be an experienced dog owner, preferably someone familiar with the Rottweiler breed. Interested in seeing Clint? Come down and see him at the shelter today!
Butch - 13826
Don't let Butch's rough exterior fool you! Butch is just a teddy bear at heart. He's such a sweetheart! But was brought into the shelter as a stray in mid-February. Butch had some ear and skin infections when he first came into the shelter. But they're all cleared up now. We also think that his previous owners may have tried to crop Butch's ears themselves since they look a little ragged and asymmetrical. Butch may come across a little timid and shy at first, but he soon turns into quite the lovebug. Butch accepts hugs and kisses anytime you want to visit him!
Ike - 13792 ADOPTED
This is Ike, as in Mike & Ike! Ike is a very handsome Plott Hound. He has white fur with brown patches. Surrendered to the shelter at the beginning of February because his owners are moving, Ike is still a little unsure of things right now. He is very friendly, and will need a family willing to take the time to assure him that everything is okay! A typical hound, he has the signature hound bark and his nose is always to the ground. Ike is waiting to go on an adventure with you. Want to go along?
Bear - 13840B ADOPTED
Bear looks like a little black bear. He also looks like Simba's twin! It's uncanny how alike they look...Bear is a stray who was brought into the shelter at the end of February. We're not quite sure what kind of dog he is. He could have some Schnauzer in him with a little Terrier mixed in...but who knows! One thing for sure is that Bear is very, very playful. He's still a pup and has lots of puppy energy. Come by the shelter to play with Bear today!
Raphael - 13820 ADOPTED
This is Raphael! Raphael is an artist, just like his namesake! He's an artist when it comes to playing ball, wrestling with his brother, and trying to find treats to eat! Raphael and his brother were dropped off and abandoned at a local farm, and the farmers brought them to us! This adorable black Labrador Retriever puppy has already been fixed, so he's ready to go to his new home! He'll need a very energetic family willing to take him for plenty of walks and spend tons of time playing with him!
Barkley - 13851 ADOPTED
Isn't Barkley adorable? Barkley is a Labrador Retriever mix who was surrendered to the shelter at the end of February. Barkley loves to give hugs! He's always trying to get as close to you as possible, jumping up on your chest to wrap his paws around you! Barkley is still a puppy, and has tons of puppy energy! He'll need an active family who will take him for walks and play with him on a daily basis. Want to come and visit with this adorable dog? He's waiting for you at the shelter!
Sissy - 13861 ADOPTED
As you can see from her picture, Sissy absolutely loves belly rubs! If you rub her tummy, she'll be your best friend! Sissy was brought into the shelter as a stray at the end of February. She's quite the fashionista, and was found walking into the Lebanon Walmart. She admits she has a problem, and is willing to go to Shopaholics Anonymous. We think that Sissy is an adult Cocker Spaniel / Labrador Retriever mix. Sissy is extremely friendly and affectionate. Want to make Sissy's day? Come and visit her!
