BOBBY! Girls just wanna' have fun? Well girls "ain't got nuthin' " on this little long legs! Bobby is always ready for a romp and a jump, and he certainly has the legs for it! This little dude just jumps right over any other pup in his path. Can't really call him the Engergizer Bunny though, because he does run down, and then he's ready for some serious cuddle time, preferably under a cozy blanket in your lap. Bobby gets along with all the other furkids in his foster home from the itty-bitty to the big-giant. They all look like play things to him! Meet Bobby and see how much fun it can be to have this pleasantly-puppy energy in your home! He's a 10 month old Neutered Male IG/Chi mix from TX. Available after 4/10/18.
Bongo is an 11 year old purebred black Lab. His owner moved out of the country and left him with relatives. He has lived with kids 10 and up and he loves tennis balls. We bet he loves the water too. Bongo is a cuddly,lovable dog. He is super sweet and our vet says he is in great shape for his age. He just needs to lose weight. After a 40 minute walk in the morning he likes to chill on his bed! When he sees the leash he gets so excited. He loves his people.He's on a grain free diet and is up to date on vaccines so he just needs an awesome home. Please apply online for a meeting with Bongo.

Click on picture to enlarge
Carly is a 5-6 year old spayed female Schnauzer mix who was abandoned at a boarding facility. She is a sweet heart who is good with dogs and kids. She is crate trained and walks well on leash. Available 4/11/18.
Charlie is a 7 month old Poodle / Shih Tzu mix who is already the size of a mini-poodle so we expect he may grow to 35-40 lbs. He was adopted by a family with small children and was too rough with the little ones. He's still teething so can be mouthy at times. He needs remedial obedience training (puppy classes) and some socialization with other dogs, either at day care or in a supervised play group. He's not a dog for the dog park. Apply online before coming to see him.
Daisy is 7 month old petite female Beagle. She was briefly adopted and returned for separation anxiety. We worked with her and she has made great progress, but would do best with someone who is in and out during the day or with daycare. She weighs 21 pounds. She originally came from WV where she and her sister, Anna, were dropped off at the shelter. She is a sweet dog who gets along with dogs, cats and children. She would adore children. Please apply online at saveadog.org before coming to meet her. We have drop-in hours on Sat 12-3 and private appointments during the week.
Danner is an 8-9 month old black Lab who was a stray. He weighs 53 lbs and has some growing to do so could get to be 70 lbs. He's a joyful boy who will need an active family. He is not one to sit at home in a crate while you're at work and he would be too bouncy for small children. Teens and up would be a lot of fun for this sweet boy. Help us to do right by him. Very laid back, friendly can be a bit shy at 1st but readily responds to people and is good with all dogs and cats. Will need additional housetraining. He was found as a stray and most likely had not been an inside dog however he now after a short time in a foster home eagerly wants to go out for potty and play then will lead the way back inside the house. He is doing nicely walking on leash, enjoys going for walks and likes toys. He is very well behaved, not destructive in any manner. He is ready to share life with some lucky family.
Apply at http://www.saveadog.org/applytoadopt.asp and check the web site for hours. He is available after 4/7/18.
Meet Darling! Darling is a 1 yr old yellow lab mix weighing about 50lbs. Darling may be timid at first with new humans, but her tail and ears perk up when she greets other dogs. Darling will do best in a home that has other similar size dogs whom she can watch to learn the rules of the home. In no time, Darling will be prancing around the yard with her new canine buddies and coming right up to the humans for ear rubs and chin scratches. Darling likes to gather all chew bones and hoard so I sometimes have to take several away but she doesn't even notice as long as she has her bone. She takes treats gently. She will willingly go into her crate but can't last for many hours. She was born to play! She was good with a cat in her temporary home, but didn't do well in an apartment. She needs a yard with easy access outside.
Preference given to local adopters with a dog friend for her and a fenced in yard. Available after 4/10/18.

Click on picture to enlarge
Geronimo is a 9 month old neutered male Wire-haired Terrier, possibly Dachshund mix who was turned in because he has puppy mouthiness. Actually, we learned that he is a resource guarder (guards toys, for example), so will need some behavioral work with a good trainer. Because of his issue, he should not go with children. He is playful and would need someone home during the day or doggy daycare. He's 21 lbs. Will grow a little more. Please apply at http://www.saveadog.org/applytoadopt.asp and check the web site for hours. He is available after 4/7/18.
Hello, new friends! I'm Grey Berry! I'm a 6 yr young Heeler mix weighing 43 lbs. I'm a "ball fiend" and I can catch a frisbee! I had "the life" with my owner - I learned some sign language and hand commands because he was deaf. Unfortunately, he passed away, and I went to live with his brother. We lived out of a car for awhile, and I was still a good boy - very quiet and friendly to all. When he found a new place to live, unfortunately, I wasn't allowed. It was really sad to lose people. But I know I have SO much love to give! I'm a smart boy and I know several commands. I'm good with other dogs, and I love to go for car rides. I'm quiet and an easy keeper. My foster mom tells her friends that I smile all the time, and that I've been a very easy boy to have in the house with her other dog. Oh yeah, I like tennis balls and soft toys, so if you have those I'd love it! I can't wait to meet you! I will fetch the ball and bring it back every time! I'm gentle with everyone. Have not met cats, but would probably be fine. Available after 4/10/18.

Radar is a nice middle-aged Golden Retriever mix who has the Golden personality. He is beyond sweet and good with kids. He is nice, dog friendly, loves everyone at the clinic where he was dropped off. He has been in a foster home and is good with kids and good in the house.

Ridge is a black Lab/Newfie puppy from West Virginia. He weighs around 25lbs. right now with lots of growing left to do. During Ridge's vet visit we learned that he has a heart condition called sub aortic stenosis, which is a mild thinning of he heart wall. The vet suspects he had an infection early in his life. We have him on a Hawthorn and Dandelion supplement. Neither Ridge nor his adopter would know he has any condition! He walks a mile and half on leash every morning and plays in a fenced in yard with both the resident dogs at his foster home and on his own, amusing himself with his favorite ball. After a busy day he loves to cuddle with his people. He is a smart guy and has almost got his house training down pat. For puppies we like a fenced in yard and someone home during the day. We are looking for a local, holistically-minded adopter. If you would like to meet Ridge and check out his puppy antics please apply online for a private appointment.

Hi my name is Zora. I am a big Retriever mix. My DNA says that I am 50% Golden Retriever (both UK and US) and 25% Boxer with a few more unlisted breeds. However, I look just like a yellow Labrador with a very slight under bite (probably the Boxer in me). I love other dogs male and female and would be happy in a home with another dog. I LOVE the WATER! I was adopted, but was returned due to an illness in the family. All I want to do is get petted, play ball and hold a nice soft toy in my mouth (such a Retriever!) I am also housetrained and know commands like sit and down. I was raised with one cat and older kids. I want a fenced in yard because I like to do my business in private. Please apply online to meet me.
Zora is available by private appointment.
