Featured Pet Of The Week

**RESCUE ONLY** ‘Nemo’ is a 1 ½ yr old, male that was surrendered due to a move. His owner took him from a friend that couldn’t take care of his medical needs… that was just 6 months ago. He cannot walk on the floors here, not only because of his long nails, but also due to his disability. He appears to be super sweet, has fleas (giving him treatment now) and nails so long that they curl!! Nemo needs special care that we are unable to provide him . Here is the information that his previous owner gave us…. According to his previous owner, Nemo is good with children as young as 2 years, and other dogs. Nemo is not housebroken, but is crate trained. He is described as a lap loving, social butterfly that is active and playful. Nemo enjoys going for car rides, playing with his toys and being with his people. The previous owner has said that they were told by a Vet that Nemo’s knee caps are sideways. Nemo is up to date on his Dappv, Bordetella and rabies.

PLEASE NOTE: Although Nemo appears fine in his photos, he is unable to properly use his back legs! They remain in the sitting position at all times. If you are interested in Nemo and would like video of him, please let us know.

Dahlia - Pit
4 Years   Female

Dahlia is a 4 year old, 61.4 pound, female Pitbull that came to us as a stray. She arrived with skin issues and after a skin scrape we learned that she has demodectic mange. She is a very affectionate and loving girl that enjoys playing, but also likes to relax with you. Dahlia will play with toys and then come over just to hang out with her people. She doesn’t need constant attention and seems content to just sit next to you. We have noticed that Dahlia does fine with the noise in the kennel however; if a dog is acting aggressive towards her, she respond with a low growl. There is no lunging or aggression shown, but she doesn’t back down either. We feel that if placed in a home with oter dogs, she would need time to adjust and make sure that no issues would arise.

Snowball - Bichon
10 Years   Male - Neutered

Snowball is a 10 year old, 22.3 pound, neutered male Bichon that came to us as an owner surrender due to not having enough time. According to his previous owner, Snowball is great with cats, children of all ages and other dogs. He is housebroken, but does not like to be crated. Snowball is described as a lap loving and curious boy that enjoys going for walks, car rides and playing in water. He does have issues with allergies and is currently on preventive medication. Snowball is up to date on his dappv, bordetella and rabies.

Henrik Hanke - Dachshund
10 Years   Male - Neutered

Henrik Hanke is a 10 year old, 18.6 pound, neutered male Doxi that came to us as a stray. He is a sweet, playful boy that does great with other dogs. Recently we attempted to do a meet and greet with a 3 year old, female Maltese. Unfortunately she was extremely reactive and would lunge and bark at him. Henrik simply walked away calmly and sat down with his back to her! He loves touching, but does seem timid at first meeting. However; he quickly warms up to you and wants to be your best friend. Henrik is an energetic boy that likes to explore, pulls slightly on the leash and has lots of life let in him!
