Sweet little guy. Very social.

"Trixie" heeler/pit mix
4-5 yrs   female

AT THE SHELTER...seems to be a pretty happy girl but this one has heartworms too. What an epidemic in our shelter. Everyone out there needs to be aware of having their current pets on a heartworm preventative - so vitally important!

"Anton" Tabby with White Paws
2-3 yrs   Neutered Male

...beautiful swirl pattern on his coat. Allows you to pick him up and pet. Comes to the front of the kennel. A really nice boy! Contact emelfoster@frontier.com.

7-8 months   spayed female

just a pup - lost with nowhere to go! emelfoster@frontier.com

AT THE SHELTER...found with her sister - just wandering the countryside. Probably lost and didn't know how to get back home.

"Hickory" boxer mix
3 months   male

"Hershey" pit bull / dachshund mix
8 months   Male

Cute little guy. About 25#.

Good with other dogs and kids.

Got his color from the dachshund but that's about it the only physical trait. Dachshunds can be snippy sometimes but luckily he didn't get that either.

If you would like an application, please email rockhaven83@gmail.com

"Sandy" australian shepherd mix
3-4 yrs   female

AVAILABLE MID APRIL....found running the countryside with several other younger dogs. Don't know if she was part of this pack or just joined them for the company. She doesn't look anything like the others but she does seem comfortable with them. HEARTWORM (+) Currently being treated - financial help needed! Contact emelfoster@frontier.com

" Timmy "
7 months   M

What a sweet guy this one is !! He loves to be held and cuddled. He will make a great pet for you ! Contact Sue at 812 820 1680 or sueann60@hotmail.com

"Munchkin" MinPin/Chihuahua Mix
6-7 years   Spayed Female

Surrendered because the owner had too many animals.
Has been through a lot of changes in the last couple of weeks. Settling into foster home but is housebroken and starting to get used to so many new things. would love a nice, quiet home where she can just sit on her person's lap and enjoy life!

If you would like to meet Munchkin, please call 812 896 6968.

"Veronica"aussie/spitz mix
2-3 yrs   female

This heartworm dog has had her treatment and is now ready for a new home! Happy and bouncy and is really glad that her time of confinement is over now. She is crate trained and walks on a leash. She has a bit too much interest in kitties which might be why she is grinning a bit in this picture! Contact emelfoster@frontier.com

"Walter" german wirehaired pointer
Adult   male

sad sack eyes but is pretty unsure of everything right now. Part of a group of dogs that were turned in by an owner who didn't spend much time with his pets. Heartworm (-) and even gives tail wags now!!! Still unsure of a leash so if you are planning on taking him for a walk, you'd better allow a long time!!

"JoeMaxx" blue heeler
1-2 yrs   neutered male

great about entertaining himself!!!! Not good with poultry! Contact nitemare92@gmail.com

"Maxx" pit/lab mix
8 months   neutered male

Maxx is a happy go lucky boy that came into the shelter wearing one of those spiked collars...looked like someone was wanting him to look "tough" ---- not about to happen because those big bat ears just make him look cute! 8-10 months, neutered and fully vetted. Only about 35# and won't get much bigger! He sure loves attention and will snuggle right into you so you will pet him. He is playful and would like an active friend to play with!!!!!Loves his toys and his Kong! Contact emelfoster@frontier.com

"Harley" terrier
10 months - 1 yr   male

Family just didn't want him anymore. Had a hard time keeping him at home. He doesn't seem real comfortable with new environments and jumps in your lap for reassurance. Loves to give kisses. May be housebroken. Not good with kids and likes women more than men but if a man is sitting down when they meet he is fine. He will go right in to sit and snuggle. A man standing makes him very insecure. Not sure what happened earlier in his life but it must not have been good and involved a man standing up. Contact 812-896-6968

"Bandit" beagle mix
2 years   Neutered Male

A little slow to warm up but once he decides you're OK, he will not leave your side. Would be a great companion for an older person. About 30#. Does need a physical fence. If you would like to meet Bandit, please call 812 896 6968.

"Turk" shepherd/akita mix
3-4 yrs   Neutered male

OUTSTANDING DOG! Turk, a 3-4 yr old male shepherd/akita mix, has tremendous ball drive and will stay focused whenever a ball is in sight. Appears to be deaf which may be why he looks at you so attentively. Smart as can be. Tested with other dogs and is fine with them. Would be good with another dog since he loves to play with them. Good with people too. About 78# Hope someone is willing to give this boy a chance! Turk is being obedience trained to hand signals and learning fast! IS LEARNING TO BE A HOUSEDOG!!! You need to see this boy in person and you will be SOLD on his personality. Contact emelfoster@frontier.com
