Adult Dogs for Adoption

The following adult dogs are now available for adoption:

Note: The adult dog adoption fee is $325.00. Adult dogs are those aged 1 to 7 years old. This fee helps defer the cost of vaccinations and other medical needs. It also helps with food costs, and supplies.


This young boy, Moseley, is very energetic and sweet. He is a beautiful, white and black Pointer/Hound mix (our best guess) who came to us from Georgia. He is looking for the perfect family who can give him a safe and loving home. He is up-to-date on shots, and will be neutered and microchipped soon. We estimate him to be just over a year old. Moseley is heartworm positive, but will begin his treatment immediately. Heartworm is very curable. Any questions or concerns, please contact us.




Juliet, a Boston Terrier mix, is a sweet dog who has been adopted twice and returned twice. One family did not have time for her, and the other gave it all of four days before bringing her back because she was "too shy". She IS shy at first. She warms up to females quickly, but it takes longer for men. She gets along with some dogs but not others, so potential adopters should take note. Juliet is really very affectionate once she gets over her shyness. She loves to snuggle and sleep with her humans. If taken out on a schedule, she will cooperate and seems housetrained. She also has amazing jumping ability so keep counters and tables clear. Juliet is about 26 pounds, is spayed, and is up-to-date on all shots. Juliet will take a couple of weeks to adapt, so adopters will need patience.

Daisy is a sweet, wild child. She is a 1 1/2-year-old Lab/Pit Bull mix. She is loving and adores other dogs and humans. Daisy is playful and is extremely friendly. She just wants a safe, loving home to call her own. We believe she has had a litter of puppies in the past. As with many Texas dogs, Daisy is heartworm positive, but has begun her treatment. Once she is done with the treatment, she will be spayed. Come meet her, give her some cookies (which she absolutely loves) and watch her figure out what all that white stuff on the ground is!

Beamer was saved from a hoarding situation. He was one of 12 dogs living in a home with no humans. He is a survivor! His foster mom says he loves people, though he has to get to know you first. He has no interest in other dogs and will walk right by them, but he does like cats. Once he's comfortable with you, he wants to sit on your lap and fall asleep. He knows basic commands, is housebroken and is not destructive at all. We have not had him around kids yet. Beamer needs work walking on the leash. He does take treats gently out of your hands. He is a special, wonderful boy who is very smart and willing to learn and please. He is estimated to be around 4 years old and is up-to-date on shots.




Beautiful Charlie came to us from Texas where he had a tough life. The vet has estimated his age to be around 6 and we believe he is St. Bernard/Fox Hound mix. We believe he was abused, as he watches where your hands are all the time, as if waiting to be hit. He does take cookies gently, though. There are what look to be burn marks on his back and scars on his head and face. He is nervous, and shakes until he knows you. He enjoys walks on the leash and does well at it. At the moment, we would not recommend a home with another dog as there needs to be more testing done. Charlie does need a foster or adopter with plenty of experience who understands him and has patience and time to dedicate to him. He has so much potential and looks at you with such soulful eyes. He is heartworm positive, but is undergoing treatment for it. Please give him a chance. With love, trust, and time he will flourish.





Cash, who is a 7-year-old Lab mix, has a very sweet soul! He likes to roll on his back and have his tummy rubbed. He knows his basic commands of sit, down, stay. If you let him, he will crawl up on the couch and snuggle with you and will also, if invited, hop in bed with you! He loves his toys and carries them around with him wherever he goes! Cash needs a companion that will be home all day. He can get very anxious if there is a lot of commotion around the house, so he would do better with older children, and a quiet atmosphere. Cash would prefer to be an only furbaby. He loves getting all the attention! Not sure how he is with cats.

Our wish for Cash is that he can find a strong, compassionate owner (pack leader), who has the time to train him. He is very smart and knows right from wrong, but unfortunately, he has not had an owner who has been able to give him the time and love he so deserves and desires.

Cricket is the type of dog that is very loyal to her owner. Because Cricket is a Cocker Spaniel/Poodle mix, she is hypoallergenic and does not shed. She loves playing fetch, getting belly scratches, and snuggling. Whoever will have the pleasure of adopting her will be extremely happy with her temperament! She is a joy to be around! She can be walked on a leash or off leash as she obeys all commands. She responds to a kissing noise and loves treats of any kind!

Cricket's former owners are very sad to have to give up Cricket, but their future living situation does not allow more than one dog of a certain weight. She will make a family very happy!



Toby is a 5-year-old purebred Westie with a heart of gold who loves to be loved! He is playful and gentle. He knows all the basic commands like sit, stay, lay down, and drop it, and even a few special tricks like roll over, clap, and spin. He loves car rides, going for walks, socializing at the dog park, and playing tug-o-war and fetch at home. The groomer regards Toby as her "favorite Westie" because he likes to be groomed and pampered.

Toby has enjoyed his life in a loving family with a doggy brother, but when a new baby recently arrived, his owners had to face the heartbreaking reality that they simply no longer have the time to dedicate enough time to Toby. Toby has the spunk of a terrier and likes to chase squirrels (not sure about cats) and bark at the mail man and delivery trucks. He also is a very cuddly lap dog that loves to spend time with his humans and will gladly snuggle in bed if you let him. He does best with daily exercise and play time.

Toby has been well behaved around the new baby but has been known to get nervous around toddlers and young children. A family with older children (10+) and an adult who is home most of the day would probably be ideal. He gets along great with other dogs, but occasionally he needs time and space to warm up to them on his own terms. He can be apprehensive if they are initially overly excited to sniff him.

Toby has had some minor issues with incomplete housebreaking so it will be very important for his new family to take extra care to start Toby off on the right foot in his new home with positive reinforcement and by keeping a close eye on him until he knows where the appropriate place to go is and so he does not mark the house as he gets acquainted to his new surroundings. The tethering method would be recommended.

Toby is a wonderful little dog and can't wait to find his new forever family!
