Nellie is the perfect constant companion! This large lady is looking for a low to medium energy household with mature human companions. Young children make Nellie very nervous so she may do best in a home with teenagers or older children (12+). She's an affectionate girl that loves being rubbed and pet. Nellie will seek out your affection; this girl adores your admiration. She is well-mannered and knows commands such as "sit," "down," "stay," "come," and "roll over!" She did not seem to mind cats in the shelter and would need to meet any potential dog siblings. If you're looking for the perfect pal ... consider Nellie!

Visa may be considered "senior" but you would never be able to tell! This boy is as playful and energetic as ever! Visa's favorite toy is any type of squeaky toy. He can entertain himself so long as he's got a trusty squeaky toy and will even happily rest in his kennel as long as he's got his toy to keep him occupied! He can be a bit mouthy when playing or accepting a treat so it is advised that Visa only share his home with adults and teenagers (13+). Visa is looking for a medium energy home. He is selective about his animal friends and would need to meet any potential dog siblings. Could this mature boy be a new member of your family?

Bailey is 8 years old and is looking for a medium energy home with children 10 and up. She must meet any potential canine friends. Bailey cannot share her space with cats. Bailey loves to sniff everything she sees, so she needs an owner who will work with her on redirecting her focus and leash walking. She would have a blast doing scent work for fun with a new family!

Hi, my name is Diego! I'm 6 years old and came to the shelter because my family had a new baby on the way. I need a home with kids 16 and older and I must be the only animal. I need a low energy home with someone who will understand my needs and give me time to adjust and go slow with me. Once I get to know you, I love attention and will seek it out from you all the time! It does take me a while to warm up to new people, but please be patient with me!

Kira came to the shelter as a stray and is looking for her forever home! She is a very sweet and affectionate girl that relishes any attention that you give her. She is in search of an owner that would value her companionship; she is the kind of companion that would prefer to stay by your side rather than explore. Kira is very playful! She loves to play tug-of-war. She also enjoys plush toys and tree branches. Kira is quite an impressive jumper! Her enthusiasm for jumping and fun may overwhelm young children, so Kira would do best in a home with older children (12+). Since she values human companionship more than the companionship of fellow animals she cannot share her home with other dogs or small animals. If you're looking for a loyal and loving lady look no further than Kira!
