Scroll down the page to learn more about these three lovable dogs that are ready and eager to be your next companion!
Sammy is a beautiful purebred black lab. She was a much loved family dog , given up because the wife and kids had developed a dog allergy. Her heartbroken family did the right thing by turning her into the shelter instead of turning her loose on the street.
She is one year old and spayed. Sammy is an indoor dog that loves being with her family. She knows some commands and is housebroken. She does NOT jump on people and has great manners. She is fine with cats and other dogs.
She is quite the little lady, weighing in at about 50-60 pounds. Are you a hunter or hiker? She would enjoy that. Labs are usually real water lovers and enjoy retrieving toys from the lake.
Benjamin is an adorable Yorkie/silky terrier mix. He is neutered and was found as a stray. He is very sweet and alert. Like most terriers, he has a lot of energy. He probably would love playing fetch. Currently, walks are one of his favorite things.
He is an indoor dog only and is mostly house trained. At some point in his life, he probably has been jerked when he was wearing a choke chain or maybe even a prong collar. Because of this, he would probably be better with older children. He is a little sensitive in his neck area. With love and patience, he will learn that he will not be treated roughly again.
He is about one year old and weighs 15 pounds. He is current on most of his shots and is fine with cats. He has no bad habits.
His new owner will need to keep in mind that he will need clipping every 6-8 weeks. He is very low shedding. He would love to curl up on your lap! Benjamin can’t wait to have a forever home. He is such a cutie patootie!
Dexter is a young miniature pincher mix. Because he was found as a stray, his exact birthday is unknown but is probably about 10 months to a year. He is neutered and weighs about 20 pounds.
He is full of energy and firmly believes everyone is in love with him. He is very friendly and would be fine with kids.
He is an indoor dog only and will need a refresher on housetraining. It is often much easier to housetrain a dog that is no longer a tiny, little puppy.
He is so much fun to play with and would probably do well at agility or playing fetch in the backyard. He is a happy dog longing to find a family of his own in which to love and be your new best friend.
