Bebe and Americus

2-year-old Silkie Terrier/Chihuahua

Bebe and Americus are bonded mother and daughter. Bebe is a 2-year-old Silkie Terrier/Chihuahua weighing 8 pounds. Her daughter, Americus, is a 1-year-old Jack Russell/Silkie Terrier mix weighing 6 pounds. They came to us when their owner died and no one was able to care for them. When we get new dogs, they are usually scared and withdrawn but these 2 were spunky, happy and affectionate from the beginning. Bebe is the more outgoing but they both are so frisky and lovable. They must be adopted together. The adoption donation for the pair is $550 which includes their spay, vaccinations, microchip.


1.5-year-old Bully mix

Jesse is a 1.5-year-old Bully mix weighing 66 pounds. She was adopted a year ago and returned when the adopter relocated and was unable to take her. We were told that she doesn’t like men and that she became protective of the family. They said that when she was with the family she was lovable and happy but would become protective when anyone came into the home. She needs an adopter who will take the time to rebuild her trust. Her adoption donation is $100 which includes her spay, vaccinations, microchip.


2-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.


8-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.
