Meet Clyde, this 3-year-old boy will capture your heart. He falls right into the Love Bug classification. He loves everyone and is pretty confidant that everyone loves him, this is despite our rescuing him from a kill shelter. Clyde weighs 65 pounds and gets along with men, women, children and dogs but is a bit intimidated by kittens, he is not aggressive with them just curious. Clyde is smart, playful and affectionate. He does not have any food or toy guarding issues or aggression. His favorite things are hanging out with his human, cuddle on the couch, play with other dogs, go on walks and play in the backyard if his person is with him. He is very much an indoor dog. Clyde has a moderate energy level; he is playful and settles down quickly. Clyde doesn’t jump so is great with kids and will take a treat from a child very gently. Clyde has been around multiple children and is calm, loving and gentle. He does well in a chaotic home with many family members or a quiet home he just wants to spend time with his family and be your companion. Clyde is house broken, and crate trained. He only mouths or chews his own toys and does not bother things in the house. He loves bones, Kongs and stuffed animals. He can be reliably left out in the house and does not do any damage. His preferred sleeping location is his persons bed. Clyde does well on a leash, but he is very strong and will occasionally pull. This easy-going boy would do well in a family or with an all adult household that is willing to shower him with the love and attention that he deserves. He would also be okay with being an only dog or with having a fun fur sibling that likes to play but also will allow some couch time. At some point Clyde had an injury and missing his tail. It actually looks natural (like an Australian Shepherd) and only adds to his individual personality, when you look at him from the behind, he looks like a little black bear. When he is happy his whole back end wiggles and wags! Clyde is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations and vetted, plus microchipped. Thankfully he is heartworm negative and on prevention.

Meet Mac or as a few of his admirers have nicknamed him, Macaroni. Mac is a happy chocolate lab mix with copper highlights throughout his healthy coat and has piercing gold eyes. He is between 1-2 years old and weighs 54 pounds but needs to fill out and will probably be around 65 pounds. He is a lover of everything and everyone. He is inquisitive, very affectionate, full of sugar, gentle and has the trait of being a soft mouth lab. Most everything appears to be new to Mac, he is a quick learner, but he needs some patience and positive reinforcement. At first, he was hesitant to enter a building and go up steps but when he got so much attention after entering, he was hooked and does it with ease now. Mac meets other dogs very easily and likes children, men and women, he has not been cat tested yet. Mac is working on house training and doing well, he sleeps in his crate at night with only a few minutes of fussing and then settles down for a 7-8-hour snooze. His foster has been working on house manners with him and he is responding very well but does need some reminders. He is quickly learning to keep all four feet on the ground. He is calm on a leash and does not pull and ride wells in a car. He likes food but is not food aggressive around his foster fur siblings. He trains well with the right treats (he has his favorites.) Right now, Macs favorite thing is to follow his human around which is normal for a dog that has been in a shelter he also enjoys playing and hanging out with his foster fur siblings. He is young and has some energy but will settle down easily. He will need a fenced in yard and he will need regular exercise and a regular routine. He does not appear to be a chewer, and does not do much barking but will bark to alert if he hears someone outside. He would work well in most family structures, he is adaptable, he would do well with another dog, but it is not a requirement, but doggy playtime would be a plus. The number one on his priority list is a family that can give him a lot of love and attention, he is a true love bug!! He would like to go with you places and he likes to be petted, he is sweet, easy and has a very gentle nature. Mac has been neutered, is up to date on his vaccinations, and heartworm negative.

Meet Woodrow! Woodrow is a sweet mostly chocolate Lab boy, 65-75 pounds, approx 5-6 years old. Woodrow has come to us from our local animal control in Marshall County and now with us a few weeks. He is going to make someone a great companion dog! Woodrow gets along great with all dogs. He is doesn’t pay attention to horses, chickens and tested fine around a cat. In fact, the cat swatted him and he walked away.
He loves to be around his person and would love to just follow you around. A stay-at-home or work-from-home individual would be ideal. Woodrow does great when around other dogs but even when they are playing around him, he prefers to be right by your side. He sits on cue and he is house trained. He would be a fantastic companion dog for a single lady since he does show a little bit of fear towards men, but nothing he cannot overcome with patience. He will be apprehensive at first and may growl at a man but its harmless. There’s absolutely no aggression in Woodrow at all he is definitely a lover. He would do best around older kids or teens versus young babies since he is a bigger dog and doesn’t give you much personal space, but it’s only because he craves to be acknowledged. Poor fellow must have not gotten very much attention in the past so he longs for someone to just love him and in return you will wonder “who rescued who”.
Woodrow unfortunately did test positive for heart worms, but we are treating him at no cost an adoptive family. Woodrow has been recently medically vetted; neutered, up-to-date on all vaccines plus microchipped.

Meet Libby Lou! Black Lab female, 49 pounds and approx 1 1/2 years old. Libby is a precious, sweet, loving and funny gal just needs to be handled gently and with pure love. Thus far I have gained her trust because she has shown me her precious "Smile". Yes, she is a smiling dog! She would benefit with a knowledgeable Lab companion or couple and one that would not mind giving her the time she needs to grow. Libby thus far is doing great in the house, and hates the crate and will injure herself trying to get out of one so definitely would prefer a work from home or stay-at-home. She would do great with a retired person or persons. She does has a wonderful temperament and can be left alone in the house for short periods. She truly enjoys getting belly rubs, petted on the head and just being pampered. She loves a big fluffy bed to lay on and just enjoys being with her human curled up whenever possible. Already loves treats! Not much of a leash walker so she would definitely need time with that, but fine going into a backyard to do her busy. Doesn't require a huge amount of exercise which is wonderful being she is not fond of walking on a leash. She is also very scared of anything around her neck, so using a harness is best when wanting to get her. She easily can get spooked so best to really get her acclimated to her home before being adventurous. This little gal is super special and so deserving. Libby has been fully medically vetted; spayed, up-to-date, heart worm tested negative and placed on prevention plus micro-chipped.
