Ivy is a mixed-breed, spayed female approximately 13 years old. She is very affectionate with people and likes to play fetch and go for walks. I had her at the lake for the first time and she likes to play in the water. She hasn’t gone deep enough to actually swim, but frolics where she can touch. She has had some training with Don Sullivan’s “Perfect Dog” system. She walks well on a leash and has learned basic commands like sit, shake, down, back up and stay. Ivy is great with people, both adults and children. She does show aggression towards other dogs, however, we have been working with her on that as well as “no barking”. She is starting to warm up to strange dogs better than she used to. It takes careful and controlled/supervised introductions. She seems to do better with mid-sized to large dogs as opposed to small dogs. Once she is comfortable with another dog, she likes to run and play. She would need to have a fenced yard (minimum 5ft fence), and if there are other dogs in the house, they would need to get to know each other well before being left alone together. She has never been around cats or any other animals, and it wouldn’t be recommended. She is not able to go to the Petco dog shows yet as there are too many “stranger” dogs for her, and it becomes too stressful. If you would like to meet Ivy, please leave a message on the dog line and we will return your call to schedule an appointment. She is a great dog with a lot of love to offer, in need of a forever home. She had a dental May 2014.

  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Levi is a two-year-old black lab. He is neutered and current on shots. Levi is one of the sweetest boys. He is so happy that his tail is constantly wagging while wondering around with his favorite toy in his mouth. He loves everyone and does exceptionally well with other dogs. He loves to run outside and chase birds out of the lilac bushes so a FENCED YARD IS REQUIRED. He is crated at night which is a new experience for him. He has adjusted well to this. During the day he has the run of my house and has not gotten into or chewed anything up. He pulls a bit on his leash but am working on this also. Levi loves to ride in the car and sits very well. If interested please fill out a pre-adoption application.

  • Rat Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
Momma dog is roughly a 3-year-old spayed rat terrier mix. She has the sweetest personality! She is totally house trained and crate trained. She can be very playful, she still loves her puppies and when she is running and chasing around with them it is hard to tell who is who. A FENCED YARD is required for her. She has not played with my dogs the way she plays with her pups. Loves stuffed toys to throw around and run around with. She is great with everyone with her size maybe older kids best - she only weighs 11 pounds.

Rylie is about 8 year old Shih Tzu poodle cross. He is about 13 pounds and up to date on all shots and just had his teeth cleaned! He may have some allergies but we are looking into it as he came with fleas and poor skin condition-he is currently doing well on over the counter meds and will need his ears cleaned on a regular basis at home. He has cataracts in both eyes and cannot see well but does great at getting around. He uses his nose to find things in the room and I am sure he can see light and dark. He has trouble with steps at first but once knows the layout does very well. He does very well on a leash and is doing wonderful potty training! He lives with a cat, other dogs and a 6 year old and does well but does not like to be startled. He loves snuggles and would be great in a home that would like to be with him during the day. Riley is a very funny boy and loves to play and snuggle although he is not needy! He will need to be on a leash or a fenced yard as he cannot see his boundaries-but does out and does his business and barks to come in! He does OK in the kennel but does not prefer it. He does very well in the car. Riley is very easy to have at the home and would be a great companion pet. If you want to meet this great guy call the Adopt-A-Pet line or visit the website for application and find our Adoption days at Petco!

  • Basset Hound
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Toney is a very sweet ten year-old Basset Hound. He is neutered and up-to-date on shots. He recently had his teeth cleaned. He is a very affectionate boy. When you walk over to him he rolls over so he can get belly rubs. He does well with going up steps but if there are more than 5 steps he will not come down on his own. He loves to follow behind as you mow lawn. He is a silly boy that will grab a toy and run around like a bucking bronco. He is also a little thief that will take things and bring them to his dog bed. Toney loves to go for walks. He pulls a bit on the leash but we are working on that. The perfect home for Toney is that he would be the only dog in a FENCED YARD. He would love to be with an older couple that is around a lot.
