Tank6 year old black and white lab retriever mix
Tank is estimated to be about 6 years old, and is a black and white lab retriever mix, neutered male. Tank is somehow the embodiment of both incredibly goofy and intelligent in one larger-than-life body. Loves space to run, has learned to open the toy box, grab his favorites, and then run around awhile before destroying them. Has a tendency of not knowing his strength, will pull on the leash and jump up occasionally creating WWE headbutt situations. Takes time to warm up and behave around new human friends and may do best in a home as the only dog. We do not recommend young children at this time. His adoption has been sponsored!
Jasper4 ears old blue and white Great Dane mix
Jasper is estimated to be about 4 years old, and is a blue and white Great Dane mix, neutered male. Jasper enjoys butt scratches and ending a good session of running around the yard with a nice roll in the grass. He loves toys, is treat motivated, and knows how to sit and give paw. He thoroughly enjoys rope toys and had a great time puzzling over what a frisbee is! Jasper needs someone with time to work on his manners and a home without little humans or other furry friends.
Pongo6 year old black and white American Bulldog mix
Pongo is estimated to be about 6 years old, and is a black and white American Bulldog mix, neutered male. Give a dog a pool and he’ll swim forever! Pongo is our huggable, water dog that loves to play, fetching toys out of the water every time we throw them in! He knows how to sit and shake, and you may catch him putting his paw out to you because he wants you to hold his hand! Despite his good intentions, Pongo can be a rough player and would do best in an adult only home with someone ready to match his speed. ***ADOPTION FEE SPONSORED***

Ella and Dakota6-month-old Hound mix sisters
Ella and Dakota are bonded 6-month-old Hound mix sisters weighing approximately 22 pounds. When they first arrived, they would fight so we were adopting them separately. We’ve had them for 2 months and now they are bonded. Ella is more timid and when she becomes scared, her sister Dakota will comfort her. It is very special to watch. So there is no way we are going to separate them. They both are friendly, playful (love squeaky toys) and affectionate. The adoption donation for the pair is $450 which includes their spay, vaccinations, microchips. Please come to meet these lovable bonded sisters.
Ava10-month-old Retriever mix
Ava is a 10-month-old Retriever mix weighing 53 pounds. Her original name was Ultra when she was adopted at 4 months of age. She was just returned because she “had too much energy”. She does have a food allergy to chicken so she has to be fed beef, salmon or anything other than chicken. The owners were feeding her chicken so she did have a skin allergy which she is recovering from. She gets along with the other dogs but has not been cat or child-tested. Her adoption donation is $300 which includes her spay, vaccinations, microchip. She is very frightened and confused. She never did anything wrong and doesn’t know why she is back. Please help her get the Forever Home she so desperately wants.
