Featured Pet Of The Week

UPDATE: So this guy went to a St. Patrick's Day parade event with us last weekend and was AMAZING! Nearly every person that he met, as soon as he made eye contact, he flipped over and begged for a belly rub! Children, adults -- everyone! He did Bark at one guy with a hat, but after a scolding, was fine. That was his only incident. He will absolutely be best in a foster home and NOT a shelter environment as he does not do well behind a fence, but out in public I saw for my own eyes that he was VERY, VERY good. Nice boy

Townes is a great younger dog. Adopted from us as a 3-4 month pup, he was recently returned to us as his owner had passed away. His right leg is a birth defect that does not slow him down at all. He was in a staff's home as a temp foster during a building crisis we had earlier this year and did beautifully with her Newfoundland, yorkie and cat. He does not show particularly well at the shelter however as he gets wiggy at the gate and does seem to have some barrier aggression. Temp foster said that did extend to her fenced in back yard -- he would get fussed at neighbors through the fence but on walks or outside of a fence was GREAT. Once out of the kennel, he walks on leash well and interacts with all well. He is a little shy at first but snaps out of that pretty quickly. Great guy.

King, 2-3 year old Black Pitbull/Lab Mix
2-3 year old   M/N

I would describe this guy as an old soul. He is pretty mellow although can kick up his heels too. He does well with every dog we've tried him, with and cats are of no bother either. Easy, laid back pittie.

Big Goofy, Strong and playful is a good description of this guy. Great for an active person who would take him hiking or long walks or runs.
