Our Dogs Available for Adoption

Couch Potato

I like the easy going lifestyle. I’m a laid-back kind of dog who enjoys taking long naps, watching movies curled up on the couch or a warm lap. I am the quintessential dog curled up by the fireplace. I like taking short distance walks and definitely enjoy food and lots of treats. I am happy just being near you, laying at your feet, walking by your side and just enjoying your company. When you’ve been gone for a while, I think a sincere tail wag and a smile are a sufficient greeting to let you know that I’m glad you’re home. I offer companionship without the stress of unspent energy.

Love Bug/Scaredy Cat

Sometimes I can be shy yet charming. What can I say, I know how to work the puppy dog eyes. I’m searching for a patient owner with a relaxed lifestyle. Treat me with kindness and I will love you forever. I’m fun-loving, happy-all-the-time, glass-is-half-full kind of dog looking for someone who loves to laugh and play around. The owners must have a great sense of humor and time to spend with a canine friend. I’m flexible when it comes to activities. If you want to go outside and play, I’m game. But if you prefer a good book, I’ll happily enjoy our time together curled up next to you. Mostly, I’m a dog on a mission to shower you with love and just hang out! I’m smart, shy, scared at times, but ready to trust and dish out love and seeking it right back. I am like a flower ready to bloom with nothing but love.


Social Butterflies/Outdoorsmen

I think everything is fun, interesting and meant for play. I’m a naturally playful, fun loving, very curious, and a trusting dog. Anything you do, I’ll want to do too because I like adventure. Life with me will keep you constantly on your toes. The fun and laughter is always guaranteed non-stop since sometimes I can be quite silly when I channel my inner clown. The more you laugh, the harder I will try to entertain you. I am Intelligent, independent, confident, clever and always getting into things. However, I will still maintain my unbelievably “cute” nature in the process. I prefer making my own decisions but will listen to you, after all I know who feeds me. We’re partners in life, so treat me like one and we’ll both live happily ever after. Since I can be quite decisive at times, you might have to pull me in, discipline and teach me. Firm, but fair is all I ask, because occasionally we all need someone to remind us who’s in change and reinforce our trust in you. Above all, I do want to learn and please you because that’s what it’s all about!

Non-stop Busy Body

I have a “let’s get up and go” attitude and my kind of lifestyle will keep you motivated to be outside and moving. I’ve got tons of energy; and just like the sun, I’m burning and working long hours of the day, so you better be ready to play. I can run for miles, chase a ball for hours, and still want to play at the end of the day. Photos of me are mostly blurry, I have a hard time sitting still and waiting for the camera to snap my picture. I have lots of drive, motivation and will get you in shape! I can go jogging with you in the mornings, swimming, hiking just name your pleasure. Don’t expect me to sit around much, I’m not a fan of boredom. After you return home, I will greet you with such energetic tail wagging that my whole body wiggles too. I may get so excited that I can get quite vocal to let you know how thrilled I am by your return….”Oh, and by the way did you bring a new dog toy?” I’m Intelligent, independent, confident and clever. We are partners in this adventure called life. Treat me like your best friend and we shall both live happily ever after.
