Happily ever after ...Happily ever after...Happily ever after...Happily ever after...Happily
Oscar is a sweet, 8 year old boy who loves belly rubs and curling up next to his person for a nap. He only weighs about 13 lbs and has scruffy terrier hair. He loves playing with toys but has a hard time sharing with friends. He gets along with other dogs as long as food and toys are not involved. He is crate trained and knows some basic commands. He is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested and microchipped. His adoption fee is $300.
LIZZIE - LIZZIE is an 8 year old female Coton de Tulear, who was rescued from a puppy mill where she had been used for breeding her whole life. She's learning to trust people and has been enjoying her daily walks with her handler in our prison program. She weighs about 12 lbs and was shaved down before we picked her up, but her fur is coming back in beautifully. She did not want to be touched or held when she first came into the program, but her handler has been desensitizing her to it and she now sits proudly on his lap during our class down-time!
LIZZIE does great with smaller dogs around her size, but is scared of large dogs. She did fine with the only cat she's met, but we don't think others will be an issue. We don't know how she would do with kids. She is housebroken, crate-trained, spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Her adoption fee is $300.
Lovable little LINDY is a 6 ½ year old female terrier mix who loves to snuggle and be the center of attention. She is smart as a whip, listens exceptionally well and loves to please. She is dominant with the other female dog in the past home and is a princess that demands all the cuddles and attention, so she will need to be the only dog or with a laid-back male dog that would help her relax when she gets anxious. She would do best in a quiet home with a family who will give her structure and continued socialization. Children make her nervous so a home without young children would be best. Lindy is doing great with the foster home cat.. She enjoys going for walks and does well on a leash but is perfectly content just sunbathing in her fenced in yard.
LINDY does require liver medication and has some anxiety that most likely will not be an issue, when she finds a new home where she’ll be happy and relaxed. She is housebroken and will let you know when she needs to go potty and needs crated when left alone to avoid accidents. She is being crated at her foster home and is doing very well.
LINDY is spayed, current on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Her adoption donation is $300.
SKYE is one of our 3 pug-dachshund sisters who is looking for a new home! She was undersocialized when she came to us, but is learning to trust people in our prison training program. She is also learning her basic obedience commands, and is housebroken and crate-trained as well. She's very sweet and just wants a home to call her own!
Skye is vaccinated, spayed, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Her adoption fee is $300.
BUDDY is a 2.5 year old yellow lab, who weighs about 75 lbs. He's very friendly and gets along great with other dogs (in fact, we prefer he has a dog friend in the home!). He can be a little anxious when meeting new people, but he listens to his commands well and can easily be redirected. He has been through professional training, where they worked on his comfort level in his crate, and he's starting to be okay with it. However, he's not destructive at all when left out of the crate, so it's not a necessity. He enjoys being brushed and will play with toys, but mostly just loves to run around the backyard with his dog friends!
He's house trained, neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative. His adoption fee is $300.
He is a 2 year old yorkie with an alpha attitude. He learned his basic commands in the prison training program and is cage trained. Arlo doesn't really like bigger dogs and will try to go after them. He weighs about 7.5 lbs. His trainer said he needs his energy drained before he will mind you for doing his commands. He tries to be the boss but if you have a firm hand he will learn you are the boss. He plays with dogs his size or slighty larger. Since he is a door darter, we will require a fenced yard and no small children. We also need for him to have another small dog to play with. He needs to burn off energy so he is calmer.
He has been vaccinated, heart worm tested, microchipped and neutered. His adoption donation is $300.
This 28 lb shepherd mix is about 3 years old and has successfully completed our prison training program. She is described as an energetic and affectionate female. She gets along with everyone she meets and is housebroken. When practicing her commands, she is attentive to the handler and keeps her eye focused on him. Clara loves to be petted and groomed and will sit for long periods of time for her brushing. With her wonderful temperament, we believe she would be fine with children. We do not recommend her living with tiny/small dogs or cats as her prey drive is fairly high. She has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and is heartworm negative. Her adoption fee is $300.
MINDY - ADOPTION PENDING!
- Mindy is a very sweet but shy 3 year old, 10 lb, yorkie mix. She is still learning to trust humans, but has done well in our prison training program. She's housebroken and probably loves her crate a little too much, so her handler has been trying to encourage her to spend some time outside of it. She does like to go exploring occasionally and has started to play with bigger dogs. We feel she's progress about as far as she probably will in the program and is ready to tackle home-life.
Mindy is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Her adoption fee is $300.
He was picked up as a stray and never claimed but we took a chance on him and it is amazing what a great dog he is. He is part shepherd and maybe rottweiler or lab mix, about 2 years old and 50-60 lbs. Wally has been trained in our prison training program and has done an amazing job. He is housebroken and shown no aggression at all with other dogs or people. He likes other dogs but absolutely loves dog toys. He will play with his toys for hours. Wally knows his basic commands and just wants a family to love. He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and is heartworm negative. His adoption fee is $300.
EMMA - COURTESY POST:
Emma is a 14 year old Shih Tzu whose elderly owner could no longer care for her. She is in pretty good condition to be such an old gal! She has a bit of arthritis that she recently started meds for, but that is the only medication she is on/currently needs! Emma has always been kept up to date on vet care and recently had bloodwork done. She is spayed, heartworm negative and up to date on vaccines. She is good with cats, but would prefer to be an only dog or live with another senior dog that gives her space. Her eyesight is good but she is a little hard of hearing. She is also potty trained and will bark when she needs out! She is such a sweet girl that deserves a wonderful family to love her for her golden years. She is a wonderful, easy-going companion!

Katie is one of our 3 pug-dachshund sisters who is looking for a new home! She was undersocialized when she came to us, but is learning to trust people in our prison training program. She is also learning her basic obedience commands, and is housebroken and crate-trained as well. Katie is a bit dominant of other dogs, so she will need a tolerant housemate.
Katie is vaccinated, spayed, microchipped, and heartworm negative. She recently had her teeth cleaned and a few were extracted, but they look as good as new now! She does require a mixture of wet and dry food, but we are slowly transitioning her to dry food only. Her adoption fee is $300.
ZUMA is one of our 3 pug-dachshund sisters who is looking for a new home! She was undersocialized when she came to us, but is learning to trust people in our prison training program. She is also learning her basic obedience commands, and is housebroken and crate-trained as well. She loves playing with other dogs and cuddling, but she does need to lose a few pounds! We've had her on a diet and she's dropped a couple pounds already, but due to her elongated dachshund body, she'll need to drop some more weight to protect her back.
Zuma is vaccinated, spayed, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Her adoption fee is $300. She's also had her teeth recently checked and should not be due for a dental anytime soon.
This 5 year old maltese is a puppy mill survivor and is still learning how to be a pet. She finds comfort in being around other dogs so we would love for her to be adopted in a home with another small dog. She will require a home with a fenced yard. She is in the process of being potty trained and uses wee wee pads and will go outside. She is timid but friendly and will let you pick her up and hold her. She has been vaccinated, spayed, heart worm tested and microchipped. Her adoption donation is $300.
Kiara is a 7 year old Westie puppy mill survivor. After years of being bred and mothering her pups, she is ready for the love and attention she deserves.

She does great with other dogs and elementary-aged kids. She weighs about 16 lbs.
