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.




Our Swisher is a full-bred Boxer girl. She was owner-surrendered along with her 4 puppies. Her babies have all found homes and now Swisher is waiting. She's a sweet girl, about 5 years old. She is up-to-date on all her shots and will be spayed and microchipped soon. Swisher would do well as either an only dog or in a household with a male dog. She is not too fond of the female variety. She's curious, energetic and loving.





Tiffany is the sweetest baby! The person who transported her to us from Georgia fell in love with her and, if he didn't have so many dogs of his own, would probably have kept her. That is how great this girl is. Tiffany is spayed, up-to-date on her shots, and microchipped. She gets along wonderfully with other dogs and loves people. She is a curious girl who likes to explore and lets her nose lead her. She is quiet -- I did not hear her bark, whimper, or whine the whole half hour it took me to get her to her foster home! Tiffany is crate and potty trained. We are looking for an adopter that either has another young dog in the home or an active family -- Tiffany needs the companionship. When last weighed, she came in at 52 lbs. We believe she is between 1 and 2 years old, so she is fully grown. She'll make a lucky family a wonderful dog!





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.



We have the cutest beagle up for adoption! His name is Duke. He's around 1 year old. He's gentle, calm, obedient and playful, and, yes, he sometimes does get a bit excited. After all, he's not much past his puppy stage yet. Duke knows come, sit and down. He does like chewing, but just give him a milk bone or a rawhide and he'll be a happy boy. He's up-to-date on his shots, is neutered and on heartworm preventive. Oh, and he's good with dogs and people, both big and small.




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!

Where's Spot? Well, right here! Our newest cutie is Spot, a one-and-a-half year-old Texas transplant, possibly a Pointer/Boxer mix. He's a real lover! We think he used to belong to someone because all he wants is attention and love. He gets along well with other dogs, he's playful and friendly, and he has lots of energy. Spot is up-to-date on all his shots, he's micro-chipped, and is neutered. He's a cuddler, a 43-pound baby who's a lap dog! He spent several hours on a volunteer's lap while at a farmer's market. We think he is easily trainable and just needs a loving family to start teaching him some commands. WE ARE STILL LOOKING FOR A FOSTER FOR THIS SWEET BOY!



Scrappy & Pepe

Scrappy and Pepe are best of friends and need to be adopted together!

Pepe, who is around 2 years old and about 18 pounds, is a real cutie! Pepe is the dog on the left in the photos below. As to breed, that is a complete guess. He's on the smaller side, so he could be a Chihuahua mix with maybe some kind of terrier, maybe even some Lab. All we know is that he is way too cute!

Scrappy, who is about a year old, is the dog on the right in the photos below. He's good with other dogs, adults and children. He is quiet, good-natured, friendly, and goofy-looking. He's looking for a forever home and is ready to go. Scrappy is up-to-date on shots, dewormed, and neutered.

Please fill out an adoption application for this pair of best friends! You won't regret it.




Here is a solo photo of Pepe.

This is Gus, a Chow/Shepherd/Retriever mix. He's around 4 years old and a bit overweight - now on a diet. He came to us from Texas and is in boarding. We would love to find him a forever home, but if that is not possible, a foster home would be a great start. He is dog-selective so it would be better to be the only animal in the home or to have a meet-and-greet with the resident dog ahead of time. He is neutered and up-to-date on his shots. He's wonderful with humans and just wants to be loved. It broke my heart to have to leave him in boarding. As I was driving away, I saw him looking after my car as he whined. Will you please give this big, beautiful boy a chance?

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.





Jake is a sweetheart who loves other dogs and people. He is around 1 1/2 to 2 years old. We would prefer a fenced in yard for Jake, who is full of energy. He loves walks and playing, and wants to sit in your lap ... he forgets he is almost 50 pounds! He is crate-trained, housebroken and ready to call your home his. Come and visit Jake. You will not be sorry!!



Who wants to meet Holly? She's a sweet, gentle, loving little Pointer/Lab/Hound mix who is around 1-year-old. She's nearly housebroken and gets along very well with her foster's resident dogs. She loves to cuddle and has a wonderful disposition. She's up-to-date on her shots, is spayed, and only needs to be micro-chipped. She's ready to find her forever family.
