Part of a large group of dogs that were just brought into the shelter. This little girl has some flea infestation and a cherry eye but she loves to be held and will make a fine pet once she is medically cared for. Contact

"Part of the Pack" beagle mixes
Young Adults and Adults   female

AT THE SCOTT COUNTY ANIMAL SHELTER...these are more of the group of smaller dogs that was brought in by animal control last week. Several of these little girls are quite frightened and unable to be handled at the moment. As we get more of a chance to work with them and they decompress, we will learn more about them. They are flea infested and will need time to get their hair back and their coats looking good. Once they have some of their medical needs met and Tender Loving Care, they will turn into different dogs!

"Charlie" beagle mix

25 pounds and very nice. He was part of a large group that was brought in to the shelter and he is one of the nicest. He puts his head in our laps for attention and closes his eyes when you pet and hold him. Contact

"Pablo" hound/cur mix
12 wks   male

Pablo loves to play but would play best with bigger dogs since he likes to win all the time and overwhelms some of the smaller pups.
