Morphius - 12594
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! Morphius loves his leash walks and loves squeaky toys, balls and any type of toy on the planet! He'll need some basic training to help keep him focused and well behaved, but our staff and volutneers have been working hard with him! 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!
JoJo - 13206
JoJo is a young, adult neutered male Chihuahua mix surrendered to the shelter in late September. When you meet JoJo you'd think he was still a puppy! He's SO loving and happy and just lives to snuggle and kiss and be joyful! He's just a wee bit shy when initially meeting new people but that goes away quickly once you give him a good scratch and some treats and a little TLC! JoJo sits nicely on command and loves his leash walks!
Sweetie - 13409a
Sweetie is an adult spayed female American Pit Bull Terrier mix found as a stray in late October.

She has never lived with cats. Her original family said she has a bad habit of eating stuffed toys! So no stuffed animals for this pup!

He's so adorable and happy and just loves his leash walks and spending snuggle time with our staff and volunteers! Skip gives the very best kisses around, and he likes to crawl on his belly during his walks... its so precious! Skip sits perfectly on command. He has typical happy, terrier energy, but will calm down very nicely when sitting with his people friends and getting nice back scratches. Skip will do best in a home without other dogs. Please take a moment to stop by and meet this very loving little boy!

She gives the very best kisses, and even tries to give hugs by jumping up and wrapping her paws around you... just looking to be close and get as much love as possible! Lou sits nicely on command, gets along well with other dogs, and walks well on a leash. She's an energetic, happy girl, that suddenly lost her owner and now is waiting for a new family to come along and pick her. Stop by soon to meet this very sweet dog!
Inky - 13563 ADOPTED
Inky is senior spayed female Lab mix brought to the shelter by authorities because her owner passed away very suddenly and tragically. Such a sad story. We found out that Inky and her owner were best of friends and they were all each other had in the whole world. Inky is such a friendly loving girl, a tiny bit submissive but still such a doll! She came to us with very little information so we are not sure how she is with dogs, cats or children, but from our experience with her so far, she loves everyone and eveything! Please stop in soon to meet this very sweet girl, she deserves a loving home!
UPDATE: Inky falls under our "Free to a Great Home" program because of her age! (application process still applies)

Zeus is SUPER friendly, loves meeting new people, gets along well with children and other dogs, and is an all around fun, happy dog! Zeus is very energetic! He does pull a bit on his leash walks but that is becaue he's so excited to be out and about, and out of his kennel. Zeus knows his basic commands like a champ and he is housebroken.
