DOGS UPDATED 7/2/2015

Check back soon as we update our site with new and wonderful animals regularly!

 


 

Rex

Just over one year old, Rex came to CVHS from an overcrowded southern shelter. We are not sure how he'd do with cats as he is too distracted at the shelter to meet them. He needs to be the only dog in his new home and would probably be too overwhelming for kids under 10 as he is very jumpy and mouthy. Rex is a very high energy boy who loves toys and attention. He is very food motivated and already knows some commands. His is also comfortable using a crate. He would do best in a home with someone that will work with him on his basic manners.

Tucker

Tucker is 8 years old and came to the shelter because his owner was ill and could no longer care for him. He is an active and playful boy who gets along with everyone he meets. He lived with older children in his previous home and did well with them, but he does need to be your only pet – no cats or dogs. He is very friendly and energetic and loves playing with his toys. Do you have room for this sweet and playful boy?

Mia

Hi there, I'm Mia! I came to CVHS from an overcrowded southern shelter. Coming from the south means the staff at the shelter have no background information on me which is unfortunate because they are all so curious as to why I am so scared here. I love everyone I meet, but these new surroundings make me nervous. The other dog friends that I have met here have really helped me come out of my shell. I love to play with them and they make new things not so scary. I am looking for a home with kids 14 and up and no cats. Since I am nervous, my new owner needs to understand I could be a flight risk until I feel more comfortable. I love other dogs, but I must meet them before I go home with them. If you could be the one to help me understand that not all new places are scary, then maybe I am the one for you!

Stella

Hi, I'm Stella! I'm 7 years old and a can be shy at first, but I warm up quickly. I'm looking for a medium energy home because I love to play. But if you want to be a couch potato, I'll be right there with you. I need someone who is home often or who will always keep me busy hiking or running. I must go to a home with kids 12 and older and I need to meet any potential dog friend. I also do well with cats here at the shelter. Do I sound like the right fit for you? Talk to a staff member!

Chloe

Chloe here! I'm 2 years old and I came to CVHS from an overcrowded shelter. I'm a wiggly girl who loves to play. I can be very jumpy so I need to go with kids 14 and older. I need someone to help me work on basic obedience and manners. I'm a high energy dog looking for a family with a lot of time for me. Maybe long walks or hiking trips! When I get all tuckered out I love to cuddle on the couch. I need to meet any potential canine friend, but must go to a cat-free home.

Dante

Hi there, I'm Dante! I came to CVHS from an overcrowded shelter in the south. I am a friendly boy who loves to play. I can be jumpy and mouthy so I need to go with kids 12 and older. I must meet any potential canine friend and I could be okay with a dog-savvy cat. I love attention, especially belly rubs. I think I would be a good candidate for a fenced in yard. Do you have that?!

Peanut and Pippen

Peanut (top) and Pippen are a pair of Chow Chows that came to the shelter because their previous owner could no longer care for them. These sweet boys are very attached to each other and are looking for a home where they can stay together. They are friendly with everyone they meet but would do best in a home with kids over 10 years old. They are both okay with cats and would need to meet any potential canine friends. They do well walking on leash, especially when they're together, and enjoy playing with toys. They would do best in a medium energy home with someone who understands that they will need need regular grooming to stay looking so handsome!

Age: Peanut - 3 years, Pippen - 2 years

Reva, Jamie, and Bubbles

Meet Reva, Jamie, and Bubbles. These three rat terriers are all about 10 years old. Although they were very nervous when they first arrived at the shelter, they have since started coming out of their shells and are very sweet and loving with our staff members. These three girls are very bonded and would love to find a home where they can stay together. Sweet Bubbles is blind and relies on her two sisters for guidance. While Jamie will need help from her new family with a diet and exercise plan, Reva needs someone who will give her space and time to adjust to this huge change in her life. Because we want them to stay together, they are available as a trio for a special adoption fee of $150.

Age: approx. 10 years Sex: SF

Bailey

Bailey is 7 years old and is looking for a medium energy home with kids 10 and up. She must meet any potential canine friends and would be better in a home without 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!

Jilly

Jilly is 7 years old and came to CVHS because her family did not have enough time or space for her. This sweet girl is looking for a medium energy home where she can be queen of the castle. She would do best as the only pet in a home with kids 8/10 or older. She is looking for a family that will help her with her leash manners and basic obedience. She has been on a hypoallergenic diet at the shelter and will need to stay on one in her new home. Jilly is ready to enjoy her golden years - do you have room for one more?

Cody

Just 1 year old, Cody came to CVHS as a stray. He is looking for a medium to high energy home without dogs or cats. He would do best with a family that will work with him on leash walking and basic manner training. Cody must go to a home with someone who understands he is a resource guarder and will not give up objects that are special to him. Because of this, he needs to go to a home with teens or older.
