Tilley5-year-old Dachshund mix
Tilley is a 5-year-old Dachshund mix weighing 15 pounds. When she first arrived, she was so scared that she would hide and cower whenever anyone went near her. She cannot be left alone outdoors no matter how secure you think the fence is. She will not walk on a leash so she does need to have a home with a fenced-in yard. She gets along with most dogs and has not been cat or child tested. Her adoption donation is $250 which includes her spay, vaccinations, microchip. She is heartworm negative and on monthly prevention.
Kash8-yr-old Corgi mix
Kash is an 8-yr-old Corgi mix weighing 22 pounds. This boy is all muscle! He Is very handsome with his brindle coat and strong body. He is very protective of his owners and does not get along with strangers or other dogs. There was an incident where a minor bite occurred. He was lovable and great in the home but he felt he had to protect his owner when he was being walked. So he is best in a quiet home with a fenced in yard. His adoption donation is $100 which includes his neuter, vaccinations, microchip.
Cheez2-year-old Bully mix
Cheez is a 2-year-old Bully mix weighing approximately 30 pounds. He was adopted a year ago and just returned when the owner was moving out of state and was unable to take him. Cheez has had a difficult life. He was rescued from a high kill shelter shortly before his time was up. He had been a bait dog who lived outdoors in a tent and was forced to fight. He really is not a fighter, he actually is very timid. However, he does have to be the only pet. When he first meets new people, he will bark because he is scared. But if you give him time, he will be a love muffin. His adoption donation is $250 which includes his neuter, vaccinations, microchip.
Brynlee2-year-old female Jack Russell mix
Brynlee is a 2-year-old female Jack Russell mix weighing approximately 13 pounds. She was confiscated by animal services and was so fearful that you could not even touch her. She was very timid but now she is friendly and always wagging her tail. She is so mellow and quiet. We have never heard her bark. She will not walk on a leash and she is not house trained yet, but we are working on it. She gets along well with the other dogs but no cats or children please. Her adoption donation is $200 which includes her spay, vaccinations and microchip.
