 Rocky Pit Bull Terrier/Lab Mix Medium Young Male EXTREMELY URGENT! LONGEST SHELTER RESIDENT! LIGHT HW POSITIVE! 1 year, 8 months old. Neutered. Rocky is a young heartworm positive boy that is fine with other dogs but is scared in his kennel. Rocky was turned over to the shelter due to no fault of his own he was and unwanted gift.  Roy is very lovable and very playful, but he sometimes is scared of his own shadow!!
Lady Pit Bull Terrier Medium Adult Female RESCUED! Spayed! Lady was picked up as a stray the beginning of December, so we have no background info on her. What we can tell you is Lady lives up to her name; she's very gentle, very sweet, and well mannered. She loves people, is very playful, and is eager to please! She would benefit from some obedience training, and would excel at it! Don't you have room in your heart and home for a smaller sized pitty mix girl? You simply will not regret it!
Lucas Pit Bull Terrier Mix Large Adult Male URGENT! LONG TIMER!! 2 years old, 50lbs. Lucas loves to run and play. Because he is little more than a puppy, he has a fair amount of energy, so he would love to have a home where he will get nice long walks, plenty of play time, and of course, lots of toys. Like all young dogs, Lucas will benefit from training and structure. Lucas is good with other dogs and loves people!

Rocket Boxer/ Lab Mix Large Adult Male HW POSITIVE!  2 years old. This playful guy loves to clown around and play with his humans, and soak up ALL THE ATTENTION! Rocket ended up at the shelter as a stray, and somehow no one came looking to reclaim this super fella! Rocket is a very good boy, has been tested with cats and seemed to do ok (with all animals, a slow introduction is always best!) Rocket has been with us for a while, and will need a little training as a refresher and to help him be the best dog he can be - but this dude is worth the little extra work!

James Hound Mix Medium Adult Male - 5 years old. Good with children, other dogs and other animals.

Ernie Pit Bull Terrier Mix Medium Young Male URGENT! GROWING UP IN THE SHELTER! HAS $600 SPONSORSHIP!   ERNIE is a young male (approx 9 months) We don't know much about Ernie, because he came in as a stray... Ernie has taught us a few things though - 1. He is good with other dogs. 2. He thinks cats are sketchy and would do best in a home without them. 3. Ernie LOVES to PLAY! Especially tug of war! Ernie is looking for his own personal teacher to "learn him some manners", preferably one with a comfy couch for naps... but mostly someone willing to take this boy for walks, jogs and let him play his little puppy heart out! Ernie is still very much a puppy, and needs to get out of the shelter soon...

 Buster Pit Bull Terrier Mix Large Adult Male - $40 ADOPTION FEE! BLACK BEAUTY!  I'm big boy with lots of strength! I love people and will knock you down accidentally in my excitement to give you kisses. I will need consistent training, regular walks and a strong owner to ensure I mature into a well socialized and well mannered dog. Type of home I'm looking for: An active home with no small children - ages 10 & up would be perfect for him though! I must meet any other dogs living in the home as well! I don't seem to like other dogs very much here at the shelter.

Bandit Catahoula Leopard Dog/Treeing Walker Coonhound Mix Medium Adult Male - 4 years old. Due to his coon dog ancestors, he just may be the loudest dog in the shelter, but don’t let that shy you away from this great boy! Bandit is heartworm negative! Bandit doesn’t play much, he would much rather run and walk around, looking at the world through his gorgeous eyes. (Great dog to spend spring days with walking on the green belt!) Bandit may simply not have been shown how to play in his previous home - who’s knows what this boy can learn in the loving and fun home that has to be out there somewhere!

Mel Domestic Short Hair Calico Medium Adult Female URGENT - 6-8+ years old. Spayed. MEL is an older, laid back calico kitty who is looking for a calm, quiet home to call hers! She would do best in a home where she is the only resident queen (she doesn't particular dislike other cats, but she doesn't really like them either. She's just a moody, bossy old thing and she doesn't like to share her space or her humans!) And like all royalty, Mel wants to be pampered and catered to! Mel would prefer a home with no small children (older kids over the age of 10-12 would be fine though) and not a lot of commotion or noise! ...She may have a large list of "demands", but we promise - Mel is well worth it! This is one of the sweetest older cats you'll ever meet!

 Daisy Domestic Short Hair Black and White Medium Adult Female - Spayed.

Jazz Domestic Short Hair SENIOR Female - Jazz is a beautifully marked female torbie that likes to do things her way ;that includes being petted and held when she wants. Her foster said she will do better in a home with no children as she plays too rough . She was found at the court house eating from the garbage can. She is a big, healthy cat that needs a patient person who will give her space.

Skipper Treeing Walker Coonhound Large Adult Male URGENT! NO FEES FOR ADOPTER OR RESCUE! Skipper came into the shelter with both bones in his front left leg broken. He underwent surgery to repair the breaks, wore a pretty blue cast and is now healed! Skipper is an active guy, about 4-5 yrs. old, and he doesn't show his age. This handsome boy has a goofy side that makes everyone he meets him grin and chuckle with happiness. His enthusiasm for life is contagious and his carefree personality lights up every room he enters. He enjoys playing with stuffed toys and playing outside. He likes to play with other dogs; running and jumping with them is his favorite. He also really enjoys cuddling with people and getting attention and is ready to go on long hikes to enjoy the great outdoors with people who love him.  Skipper needs a home with dog savvy cats or no cats at all. He's ready to play and can occasionally get little carried away with chasing small animals because he knows they will be fun to play with if he can catch them. 

 Rebel Treeing Walker Coonhound Large Adult Male URGENT! LONG TIMER! NO FEES FOR APPROVED ADOPTER OR RESCUE!!! Did everyone forget about me? I've been waiting so long! I need a family. Rebel is quite a social boy that enjoys spending time with his people relaxing and getting some attention. He loves to play with toys and go on rides. Rebel deserves to be spoiled! He was heart worm positive, but was treated July 20th. Rebel just wants a nice family to love all 75 pounds of him while he is resting and relaxing with them during the cold winter season. NO CATS OR SMALL CHILDREN!

Terry Treeing Walker Coonhound Large Young Male - NO FEES FOR APPROVED ADOPTER OR RESCUE! Terry is a calm, quiet, laid back boy who is unbelievably sweet. He wags his tail and just watches you from his kennel). This boy has such a sweet soul!  Terry is extremely skinny due to his past living conditions but will do so much better in a home where he can be fed multiple times a day and get some treats to help him gain weight. When Terry meets new dogs he has nice manners and just walks away to show he isn't interested in playing if dogs seem too hyper, etc. He gets excited and acts like he will chase the shelter cat; not aggressively, but he seems like he will definitely chase them. We suggest a home with cat savvy dogs, if any cats are in the same home. 

 Fezzy Foe Jack Russell Terrier/Rat Terrier Mix Small Adult Male - 6 years old, 17lbs. INSIDE HOME ONLY! This little nugget is just ready to steal your heart! Festus (Fezzy Foe) is such a cuddler; carry him around and he is the happiest little guy you will meet. He seems to get along fine with other dogs and cats and of course anyone who will let him sit in their lap or share their pillow at night. This little guy will be so happy when he gets to go home with his new family. He desperately wants love (you can see him stick his little nose through the kennel to get love). The shelter is a scary place for a little guy like Festus and he's begging for someone to come adopt him soon.

Malcolm Young Male - Malcolm is a young guy, one year or less. He has a VERY sweet temperament and seems to get along fine with other dogs. Malcolm seems like he will be easy to train because he likes to please people.

Buster Coonhound Adult Male - NO FEES FOR APPROVED ADOPTER OR RESCUE! 3 years old, 55lbs. Owner surrender. Buster was so excited to be outside and play we hated to make him sit for pictures so he has a lot of action shots. Buster enjoys playing with other dogs and is friendly with everyone he meets. He LOVES belly rubs and has no problem rolling over to make sure he gets plenty. He is fun to be around and to watch him just enjoy life.

I am a great dog and would make a great companion. I walk nicely on leash and I am calm and relaxed.
