Bella is a sweet, playful black lab mix who would do best in a quiet forever home. Bella was under socialized as a puppy and humans are a little scary to her. It takes her awhile to warm up to new people and she definitely prefers females. Bella likes males as long as they are laid back and easy going. She doesn't like to go places where there are crowds. She's a homebody that doesn't enjoy the hustle and bustle of noisy children and lots of company. A home with small children or a family that frequently enjoys entertaining at their home would not be ideal. She prefers to be crated or have a quiet area to hang out in when there are people over visiting. Bella is NOT aggressive but can be reactive to strangers who don't give her enough space and time to warm up. She has worked with a trainer and is doing better at retreating when a situation causes her anxiety. Bella would benefit from additional training with her new family to help her make the transition to a new environment. Bella is almost 2 years old now and loves to play and play and play with her furry foster brothers. She MUST have a playful dog in her new home. She has a lot of energy and it would be difficult for her humans to give her enough exercise and attention. A large fenced in backyard is ideal with a fence high enough that Bella can't jump over. A home with senior dogs or dogs who really don't like other dogs probably will not work as Bella loves to be the center of attention and doesn't understand why ALL dogs don't love to run and play and be chased.  Bella loves her toys, especially tennis balls and tug of war ropes and she really enjoys her walks around the neighborhood, especially when she can pick up the scent of a squirrel or chipmunk and follow it. Bella is housebroken and knows several commands. She loves getting treats and is eager to please and follow directions. She is spayed and up-to-date on her shots. She weighs around 55 lbs right now.  All dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested negative and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $200. There is a $5 fee for credit cards.

Dooney  is a 4 year old mix  of German Shorthaired Pointer/Australian Shepherd/Coonhound.  He is full of energy and loves to run. He is extremely smart and loves to play with his toys, mostly his strong durable chew toys.  Dooney loves children and has about as much energy as they do and loves to play hide and seek. When he is not running or playing with his toys, he loves a good ear and belly rub. He has always been the only animal in the household and has been quite spoiled, so a home with no kitties or other doggies would be the best fit for Dooney.   He is house trained and already knows many tricks, but could benefit from additional training and behavioral lessons. He knows how to run with humans while on a leash and loves outside activities, especially playing in the snow.  He is looking for a new forever home with a BIG yard to run and play in. All dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested negative (age 7 months and older) and microchipped. We do not ship or transport. A dog's adoption donation is $200. There is a $5 fee for credit/debit cards.

Happy is a lab mix weighing about 35 pounds and is about 3 years old. We do not know Happy's background, but her behaviors suggest that she has not had many positive experiences in her life. Happy arrived to our rescue hairless, emaciated, and pregnant. Happy was a wonderful mom to a litter of 7 puppies. She has gained weight. And her hair is steadily growing back. Happy is a shy and timid girl and is gaining confidence daily. Happy would benefit from a home that is willing to take her to a new level of confidence building. A home that can offer her one on one attention, confidence in leash training, and understand what it is like to be a loved and cherished family member. Happy is crate trained and potty trained. She finds comfort in her stuffed toys and will carry them everywhere. Due to her timidness, a privacy fenced backyard is a requirement for her. She needs to feel secure and be safe should she feel she needs to run. She enjoys her doggie treats and looks forward to her crate treat (rawhide twist with chicken skin) every day. Happy is quite sweet and each day that you see her grow into a "real" dog you can't help but be so proud of her and her progress. You will not be disappointed in helping Happy become the dog she was meant to be. All dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested negative (age 7 months and older) and microchipped. We do not ship or transport. A dog's adoption donation is $200. There is a $5 fee for credit/debit cards.
